Hair & Makeup Gig AMV Singing Contest Season 6

Hey Guys!

As you've noticed if you read my last post, this is actually somehow related to that. I was hired again to do hair and makeup for the top 10 finalist of a singing contest in UST with Inoue, I'm so glad to be given this opportunity and so i'm really happy to share the experience with you guys.

 Gladys, my first client at the singing event.

  She chose the purple shade to match the color of her gown

She got into the Top 5!


I decided to change her hairstyle for the next singing round

 French Braid Twist

She got the 1st place!


I wasn't able to take a picture of Ian before grooming him so i just posted his photo right after the first round before makeup retouching

After the Makeup Retouching

I put some colors to his cheeks and lips so that he wouldn't look so pale on the stage.

For male makeup, I do the usual skin care routine, that includes foundation and concealing, but i mostly focus on contouring and highlighting the face. This can emphasize the bone structures and enhance the manly features :)

** Normal makeup isn't the best on stage, especially when there is a spotlight. The light usually eats up all the colors on your face making it look very pale.
Stage makeup is usually a little thicker or exaggerated than the typical makeups. This is to maintain the color and prevent your face from looking flat. I hope you get what i mean :))

 I'm so proud of Mariell, 
The Grandwinner of the AMV season 6

 I only did her hair because the makeup was done by her best friend. Isnt that sweet? 

Her winning song was "Someone like you" by Adele and oh boy, she can sing it! 
I wish I recorded it so you guys can hear it too

  But if you don't know the song yet, here's the link to Youtube

 I also did the hair and makeup of one of the hosts, Shel.

 Congratulations to the Top 3 Contestants!

Ust AC Fashion Show Hair and Makeup Gig

Hey Guys!

I've been pretty busy for the past few weeks processing important documents and doing hair and makeup gigs. ansd im very excited to share the pictures here, since I've already posted it on facebook. My friend Marielle invited me to do make up along with 2 of her friends at Ust. It was a fashion show event where her sister Lee worked as one of the event coordinators.

I met the two other makeup artists, Inoue and Ate Jasmine! and I'm really happy I got to meet and work with excellent talented makeup artists who share the same passion as mine :) plus they're really nicee!

Yes, that's foundation stain on my top :))

We met with the organizers and was brought to see the models (chosen students from the accounting college), I was pretty stunned at how gorgeous the students were, they actually looked like real models! Talk about the height and body built and to think that they're accounting students from UST,  Real brain and beauty!

Here's a preview

There were,  as i remember, less than 30 models? We were asked to do hair and makeup on the ladies but I had one guy and four ladies as clients. We started a little late and had to move to a different room right before the show.

The theme of the show was Street Swag, specifically Nigga, Hipster, Criminal and Korean Pop Look.

My first client at the event
"Criminal Look"


"Hipster" Look

I wasn't able to take a picture after finishing her hipster hair and makeup so instead i posted her runway picture

She looks so gorgeous! 

"Nigga" Look

The Runway

"KPop" Look 
I love Kpop! Haha, I'm actually a big fan of 2NE1! I just love love their bold style and makeup. 
You guys should check out their Youtube MVs! Cool stuff!
This makeup is done with my friend Marielle, She did the face routine including the eyebrows, contouring and highlighting. 
I did her eye makeup, some blush and her pink lips.
I really like her bubbly personality! 

I also did hair and makeup for a guest on the show
