These clogged pores cause the problem like acne, whiteheads and blackheads. For us to address it we must consider reasons why your glands are going haywire.
Yep, most of the time the culprit are your hormones. Imbalances and changes in your hormonal activity can affect your oil glands production. Have you ever noticed to be more prone to oiliness every time you are due for your menstrual cycle.
Tip: Once you are familiar that hormones are the culprit during that time of the month change up your oil control beauty regimen. You can also ask help from your friendly dermatologist for proper medication.
When your body becomes stressed, It’s response will increase your Cortisol production in turn causes your skin to be oily. Stress also induce water loss inhibiting the ability of the skin to repair itself.

“Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful.” -Sophia Loren
I was ecstatic when Anna,our bride got in touched with us for her bridal make up. She is one of the prettiest faces in our batch which made me feel blessed that she gave her trust to us to do her bridal make up on her big day. Anna gave us her concern that she tends to become acidic when make up is applied on her. The application tends to darken or change in color. It has been her problem eversince. ( Acidity happens when there is a decrease in the skin’s pH. There is no exact etiology on how this happens or what causes this). As a make up artist we carefully mix and match the foundation 1-2 tones lighter than her skin tone so that when the acidity reacts we still can achieve the natural,fresh and radiant glow that she wants for her day. As a make up artist it is very important for me that my bride is very confident on her look on her wedding day. As every bride glows on her big day Anna’s beauty radiates and reminds me of a Disney Princess. Happiness and love were beaming from Anna. Here’s the bridal make up look that our glam team made for Anna on her special day.
Congratulations and Best wishes Yuji and Anna!
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 :
