NU Lady Bulldogs Photoshoot + How I Survive A Photoshoot Day Like This!

I choose to focus on Bridal Makeup Artistry especially now that I'm a mom.  Any other makeup jobs like Photoshoots always excites me!  But I choose to limit myself on that route because I want to spend more time with my toddler and you know how Photoshoots take up a lot of your time.  (Kyle Nash, if you are reading this in the future, you know how much I love you ha!) :P

But when my favorite photographer Mark Lao and Bestfriend asked me to be part of the Biogenic Photoshoot for the NU Lady Bulldogs Volleyball Team, how can I say no?  It maybe a full day away from my son but it was worth it!

Pack-up faces!

The shoot calls for very natural makeup.  There were a total of 17 girls and I partnered with fellow makeup artist Bing Castro.  (Bing, great job!)  Aeicy Cruz was the one who did all their hair!  All 17 girls!

Don't you think they are so gorgeous even to begin with?  Strong women are definitely the prettiest and I'm so lucky and happy to be part of this campaign!

And I was asked so many times how I survive full day of work and still looking hyper and energetic as ever!  Well, I have my top 3 not-so-secret secrets!

  1. Coffee - best reason to say, I can have 4-5 cups because I need it! And no one will judge you!
  2. Great Companion - the unending chikka and chismis galore!
  3. Music - all my ex-colleagues can vouch that I have my own music played from the start of my work until I leave the office!  Music can definitely affect my mood!  So on long day at shoots like this, I like to turn on my Spinnr and go for my "Work Playlist".  Work playlist consists of songs like What Do You Mean (Justin Bieber), Work (Rihanna Ft. Drake), Love Me Like You Do (Ellie Goulding), etc...  

And if you think you can't do so, here's great news from my mobile service Provider.  Smart Prepaid subscribers can now enjoy 700MB open access + 600MB YoutTube, iFlix, and other video sites.  Smart Prepaid DOUBLED the data allocations and the exciting part?  For only Php50.00!   So internet surfing or video viewing for you will never be "not enough" as we get to access more sites and be all-day on social media sites.  *sigh* That's great news for someone who highly depends on social media and internet on shoot days like this to keep me sane!

I can't wait to share this great news to my fellow Smart subscribers after reading this on email.  This, for me, is the best offer (yet) from Smart.  This is a limited offer so hurry and read more about the offer here --->
