The Second First: Make-up Artistry

If last week was my first official styling gig, yesterday was the first time I "painted" someone else's face for a photo shoot. Not that I'm new at it, I've always loved painting my friends' faces and mine but it's all for fun. It's quite nerve-wracking seeing your work being taken by the lens, unsure if what you did fell short, or is over-the-top, or is just right.
Thankfully, it turned out fine.

What do you think?
I can only do natural looks or barely there make-up because that's what I wear everyday. I also had immense difficulty with the model's lips because they're too thin (which I so want. Haha). Using a lipliner, I lined past her real lips to make it look thicker (or at least I thought it did).
Model: Maribeth Balay
Photographers: Kendrick Go and Cristina Brito
I have not blogged for almost a week, and the whole team was awesome enough to let me model, too, so I brought one ensemble. Yay! Hello Lookbook and Chictopia post!

Hype the look on Lookbook and Chictopia.

Yesterday was so fun. Too bad I didn't get to stay longer, I and my old high school friends had to meet to watch the pyrolympics at SM Mall of Asia. I was so tired that day I was sleeping while on the way to the mall. Hehe.
Thank you Cristina Brito, Philip Jara, and Marc Wew for the photos! :)
