A Regal Transformation

Last July, Stef asked me and Ave to help her for her very 1st voice recital. We both agreed and said YES. I met Stef in the Ateneo College Glee Club, a Voice Major in the UP College of Music. She's our one of guest sopranos (I would also say the best) and also the better half of one of our members. Eeeee. Cheesy! Haha! When we asked her on what theme she wants for her shoot, she would always say "kahit ano" (anything in English). She just informed us that the theme of her recital itself is "Flowers". Ave and I decided that we do an ethereal shoot for her since UP has a lot of trees and grass areas. However, it was raining cats and dogs on the day of the shoot which made it impossible for us to shoot outdoors. Too bad! Ave then resorted to the white wall.

Here's Stef's portrait shot! Stef actually looks young for her age. I decided that I want to do a makeup look that is more age appropriate without losing the youthful glow. Since Stef is a performer, I want a look that will let people take her seriously amidst her very young and bubbly personality.

I gave more emphasis on her eyes using violet and purple hues. I also shaped her brows which are very light in person, to frame her face better. Added falsies on the outer corner of her lashline to open up her beautiful light brown eyes. I did a little contouring and more highlighting to give that radiant looking skin. Her lips were colored in light pink(but with a little sparkling gloss) to give more attention to her eyes.

I really love the look on her. The eyes added more drama to her face and made her transform into a "Diva" that she is. Oh, it was such a fun shoot as well! Ave said that it was one of the fastest and easiest shoots he ever had. Stef was very obedient to all the things that Ave would tell her. Another good job guys! I'm very sure that Stef will do very well in her recital. Speaking of which...

You guys should watch her! I tell you, it is worth it to watch Stef! Her voice...ugh! I can't even... It's just too beautiful to describe. I'll also be doing her makeup so I hope I can take photos and share it with you guys. If you are interested, here are the details.
