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 :

DEBUT: Gritzie

Rockin through the 60’s

(a Pre-debut shoot)

The 60’s is the birth of the “PSYCHEDELIC LOOK“.  The advent of Fashion and Make up in  full-color and pattern are the highlights of this era. Bell bottom pants. Flatform shoes. Bee-hive hairstyles.  Cher, Twiggy and Elvis Presley were all popular icons during this era. Let’s not forget the Beatles too!:)

More of the Trends are tie-dye shirts, Mini skirts, Leather boots, Long False    eye-leashes, Women liked pantyhose because the darker color gave them  the appearance of a slimmer, tanner leg. The bikini also became popular in  60s fashion, especially after the release of the movie Beach Party.

Now , Lets put her into a time machine and bring back the 60’s through Make- up, Hair style and Fashion ;
