Here are some photos that I took on-set while shooting with Katinka Tromp in Rotterdam. The makeup styling was inspired by movie stars of the 30’s, 40’s & 50’s. I can’t wait to see the final product!
A few weeks back I was asked to collaborate on a photo shoot for Ripe Wussy- Free, an exclusive street-style clothing line straight out of Amsterdam.
It was a fun day getting to work with the styling team and lovely models from Ripe Wussy-Free. The look was edgy & fresh for Spring.
You can check out the following link to see more photos from the shoot, as well as to get yourself some pieces from the Ripe Wussy-Free collection: http://ripe-wussy-free.tumblr.com/post/110631077644/the-ripe-look-threesome
I just thought I would post some pictures of work I did today. Nadia was attending a wedding and gave me the freedom to do what I thought would look best. So we did a smokey eye – a deep, dark, lovely smokey eye. Nadia has gorgeous blue/green eyes and could carry a heavily smoked-out eye. We both loved the finished product.
Earlier this month, I was asked to be a key makeup artist for Canada Philippine Fashion Week in Toronto, Canada. I was more than excited to be a part of the fashion week festivities for two reasons. First, runway makeup is so much fun to do. And secondly, I am of Filipino heritage, and I’m also Canadian!
Canada Philippine Fashion Week (CPFW) is a showcase of the best in haute couture, style, innovation, culture and creativity of the Philippines. It is dedicated to the promotion and development of Filipino fashion talent in the Philippines and Canada, all for a good cause – the Kol Hope Foundation for Children, a charitable organization that helps children with disabilities in both countries.
I was delighted to hear that MAC Cosmetics would be providing the makeup for all the shows…that is a lot of makeup! My old co-worker and friend Kim Timbol, was the Associate Makeup Director for CPFW. We worked together at MAC for many years. Under her direction and along with some other MAC artists, past & present, we braved the wild and crazy backstage scene, getting all the runway models ready and looking their best.
Hey everyone, I realize I don’t blog nearly enough so I thought I would post some videos that I have come across in my travels which illustrate the power of makeup. Love it or hate it, makeup can do wonders for people with poor skin conditions, acne, birthmarks, or even conspicuous tattoos which need covering up. These videos are just incredible:
