Another Important Event Makeover

My sister, Winnie, who always does MY hair and my make-up for special events, after several years, the wheel's has turned and she wants me to do her make-up on her brother-in-law's wedding day. It was such a busy day! A lot of people rushing around, but I was able to stay calm and I honestly enjoyed putting make-up on her! We didn't have the chance to bond so much since she had her kid, always busy and no time to prettify herself. So this was the chance, I made sure she enjoyed the makeover and I am glad she loved it and made me her official make-up artist on any important events...Yay!

  1. your sister looks amazing! i usually go to the nearest parlor for special occassions. in my case it's jessi mendez in park square. they're okay, a bit pricey tho. :)

  2. wow! you are really doing a great job. i wish i can do makeup too on other people that often...pag ikaw din sumikat, wag mo ko kakalimutan ha. hehehe

    i used to get my hair and makeup done by anybody. lol.that's how trusting i am. though i already know how to put makeup on myself, i still get other people to do it. because im so lazy and sometimes i get tensed and nervous during events that i can't think of what look i'd have. retard. lol

  3. Ok wanna come by some time and give me a touch of your makeover magic? ;)

  4. Very nice, once again! :)

    On really special events, I usually have someone else do my makeup, like a pro... I like watching them and always learn a lot!

    For other stuff, I try to do my own. It doesn't always come out well, hehe :)

  22. i love how her eyes look very well rested -- great job! :) and her look is very polished and sophisticated. ;) am hearing PPP (pesos haha 'cause we don't use dollars) pouring in! am sure you will have lots and lots of satisfied clients in the future. :D

  23. Mhean! Such sweet sweet thing for you to say! I was smiling so big when you say that I'll have satisfied clients in the future. You know what? it honestly meant a lot to me, coming from you, thanks for saying that! Clients' satisfaction is really my number one concern when it comes to make-up! That's why I am so into putting make-up on others and listen to what they want and I'll be super surprised that not everyone really..have the same taste as I do..and as long as you listen to them? You know you'll be ok as these people knows what looks good on them! :) Thanks girl! *hugs* I'm still smiling!!! :D


I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to comment your questions, suggestions and just anything you may want to say! Keep smiling and stay happy!
