AMW Makeover: Prenup Shoot Inside the Yacht

Today's makeover is pretty special to me!  Rica, was one of the first few clients I got when I was just starting out on makeup!  After years, she still remembers me and asked me to do her makeup for their pre-nup pictorial!  Thanks Rica!

It was a lovely day and being part of their pre-nup shoot was fun! 

Setup by the Bay...
Her makeup was done inside a Yacht at RealShip Corp.
Fun yet challenging all at the same time!  It was really windy so a super steady hands and fast reflexes were needed! 

Rica's Before and After Photo
To be honest, she has this gorgeous smile that could lit any room!  It wasn't hard to prettify her as this lady is already gorgeous in and out!  Perfect example of what AskMeWhats -- the blog is striving for!

Rica left me in charge of her makeup looks!  She's very comfortable as we chatted while doing her makeup!  She told me I can do anything I want and I've decided to create a natural, fresh-looking makeup because I don't want to hide her beauty but enhance it instead!

Her skin is well moisturized prior to makeup application, all I need to do is to even out her skin color and apply foundation that matches her neck and body. 
A pink lipstick is a wonderful touch for that "playful" look!  Which, by the way, I changed it as the shoot goes on...

Oh!  I got the liberty to apply falsies for her!  It's going to be 2nd time for her in her entire lifetime!  I am quite confident with the lashes I've used!  The ES Lashes with band that's flexible and doesn't poke anyone's eye!  It doesn't feel heavy too so it's perfect even for first-time false lashes wearers!

For the hair:
She's got healthy locks and I want the newly "colored" hair to be enhanced by creating big curls!  This will create a very sexy look in an instant!

In Tagalog, it's definitely "TALIKO-GENIC" type of hairstyle. *lol*

AMW and the lovely couple
I also applied a bit of makeup to the groom-to-be!  
Both of them look gorgeous but I look like trash! 
Who cares, they are more important than anyone else in this makeover :D

I can't wait to do more makeovers and share to you my experiences!

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
