Hallo! Finally, a makeup post! But these photos are long overdue since they were taken about a year ago. Anyway, this photoshoot is a lot of firsts for me.
  1. 1st portfilio photoshoot
  2. 1st attempt to shoot outdoors
  3. 1st collaboration with my bestfriend photographer, Ave Royd Santiago and good friend from the Ateneo College Glee Club, Aileen Belmonte
Ave and I have been brewing this photoshoot for 2 months. We just started doing our own passion back then (Ave as a photographer and me as MUA). During one dinner out, we agreed to do a collaboration. We were so EXCITED! It was my 1st time to hear the word PEGS. Hahaha! But since then, I can't stop using that word every time I have a make-up gig/project. Anyhoo, after a few days we finally did it! But before the final photos, let me show you some of our BTS pictures.

It was an extremely hot day (thus the title)! I had to retouch Ai's makeup for so many times. And I just realized that outdoor shoots are quite difficult for a 2-man crew. Thank God for helpful friends like Chrissie, Issa and Rey (friends from Ateneo College Glee Club. We survived! Anyway, I'll stop the talking. Here are the final photos:

Don't you just love Ai's profile shots? She looks like a Brazilian model. I used brown hues for her eyes and smoky-fied it, and used nude lipstick to bring out her beautiful eyes.

She's like professional model, right?

I have to say that this has been one of the best shoots I've been. It's always fun to do it with your friends. No pressure, no pretensions. :) I was hoping that this will not be the last. And I was right! We had another collaboration and this time, with 2 models. So, watch out for it! :)
