High Fashion E-Session | Behind the scenes

I decided to share one of my best experience in doing engagement shoots. I had the privilege to work with two artistic and amazing photographers, Julie Barecenas and Mervin Alcachupas, plus the coolest couple ever, Marvin and Rose Ann. This was the first project that I had to combine makeup artistry, styling and art direction. The couple were very much willing to do what was conceptualized.

As an artist, each of us had different views and perspective on how we wanted to showcase our talent but all our hard work paid off. Collaborating with different artists was not really hard at all especially if all aimed for one purpose –  to create wonderful photos.  It was very overwhelming to see the results of our combined efforts, ideas and hard work. I’d like to share to you these photos that were taken before the actual photo shoot.

Loving Veejay Floresca’s Creations!

I had the privilege to work with the glam team! I received an sms message from the ever so gorgeous model, Farah Ramos, and asked me if I would be interested to do her hair and makeup for a collaboration shoot. I didn’t think twice and I immediately said yes.

She introduced me to her friends, Loi Villarama (a fabulous stylist) and RV Mitra (Super great photographer), and then they showed me some pegs of the look they want for the shoot.

On the day of shoot, I saw the most elegant and extravant gown ever! These gowns were created by Veejay Floresca, a famous designer in Manila. I really had a great time working with these great people and I look forward in working with them again.

The Floresca Collection!

Make Up Sessions @ Work!

I love doing makeup so much that even during breaks and free time at the office I would ask my colleagues to model for me. I would just use whatever it is inside my bag and start applying the makeup on them.

I never imagined that I will be leaving my office job to become a full time Make Up Artist.

Here are some of my previous works:
