It was an honor to be selected to do the hair and make up for the latest music video one of the our country’s pride when it comes OPM (original pinoy music). I was so giddy like a school girl when I received a text from the stylist, Tippy Sy. That I was chosen to do make up for a music video shoot and later to find out that it was my favorite local band.

It was truly a blessing for me. The shoot was on the same day and the last day of my bridal fair at the Before I Do bridal fair at SM Megamall. I was thinking how I will manage both. I decided to leave the bridal fair to my ever supportive boyfriend, family and my superhairstylist. They never did let me down.

God’s grace is unending. He blessed us to hit number 1 spot in the Pinoy MYX countdown after its release. It was truly an experience to have worked with wonderful and talented  people in the industry.

For the peg of the music video the creative team wanted the shoot to be all black and white. They will be playing with lights and dolly movements of the subjects.

The make up inspiration was Twiggy with a modern twist.They also noted that the make up to be very particular with the small details since it will be shot in High Definition and Black and white.


(Funny Armi, sad daw dapat pag before pic LOL 😉 )

For Armi’s hair. It was done in a sleek hairstyle.

The make up done is also more contoured on the eyes and darker on colored version. To achieve its sophisticated look on black and white.

I also used double lashes and lashes on the lower lash line to make the eyes more dramatic. The lower waterline i line with matte white liner to achieve a more pronounced eyes when shot in monochrome.


Here are some of the behind the scenes photos is took during our shoot :

TRIAL: Ms. Geegin

Trial Make up for my 12/12/12 bride

She’s naturally beautiful with glowing skin and a beautiful face shape. I was asking her what look she wants to achieve for her wedding. She said that she really has no idea, And just work my magic on her.  I told her that  usually on weddings clients request something natural and fresh.

I used natural tones for her eye shadow but gave her a hint of shimmer at defined her almond shaped eyes.

For her eye brows I rounded it off a bit to give her a softer look.

hint of peach-pink blush on her cheeks.

natural lip tone for the lips




Defined eyes


Fresh, soft and feminine look just perfect for the wedding


Booked on 12/12/12,perfect date!:)

Im glad she was happy with the make up. She texted me after the trial and said that she was happy and confident with my work.

After posting the pictures she received a lot of compliments and that they usually thought make up would make someone look older but for her its the other way around.
