Meeting Ms. Cherry Pacheco Uy

As I gave you guys an update on how happy I was with the upcoming one-on-one meeting with Ms. Cherry Pacheco Uy of Paul & Joe. Time indeed flies so fast and I did met her last April 6th at her studio. It was super hot day (you can see in my pix below on my before shot).

Anyways, I don't know what to expect, but I expected to enjoy the learning experience and what can I lose right?

What I love about the meeting with Ms. Cherry is how hospitable she is, how friendly and down-to earth she is. In my dictionary, and to others, she is already successful make-up artist and stylist and she contributed quite a lot in the industry, but never did it get into her head.

So anyways, I learned a whole lot of tips and I like how she did half of my face and let me finish the other half to "check" if I really understood everything. Here's a before and after shot I want to share to you guys. (sorry, the before shot looked like a mug shot hehehe (it is SUPER HOT you know! excuses excuses..hehehe) And oh, before I forgot, I love the make-over so much that I used the pix as my profile pix! :D



Me and Ms. Cherry...



Me and my "sweetie" ...he was super kind and waited for me to finish the whole session! :) I bet he learned a couple of make-up tips as well eh?




I will incorporate some of those tips that Ms. Cherry taught me and you'll see it as we go on. I love the make-over (though the closer look in the pix would see that my left and right eye doesn't match, we used dark green and dark blue shadows heheheh)

Anyways, to Ms. Cherry, thanks so much for your time!!! I really appreciate it from the bottom of my heart :)

Your askmewhats,
Nikki

  1. Very nice indeed. I like how fresh the after pic is. I presume she/you used all Paul & Joe products? I've heard a lot about their foundation and powder. How do you like the foundation and powder you got?

  2. Hi Liz, well in the makeover, she uses mostly my own make up (which of course didn't consist of all P&J makeup). But yes, I've used P&J make up (even my bestfriend does). What I like about P&J make up is that it doesn't cake on, it doesn't look too fake and no matter how much you applied, it will maintain it's fresh and dewy look. I personally love the finish of their foundatino, I haven't tried their face powder yet. But I've checked in their counter, their powder have this hint of shimmer which is nice
