Nailpolishness: OMG Nail Lacquer Swatches

I've been loving OMG Nail polishes for one their very affordable and two its just as good as the more expensive brands out there! Each OMG polish is Php 27.00 ($0.58) so hoarding the colors is very easy but I have to say not all colors apply on the same I find that the Neon colors lack opacity but most of them are pretty good. 





I still have colors that I haven't swatched for you yet so expect more OMG Nail Lacquer posts :)
Thanks for reading!
Take care!

With much love,

Hair and Makeup for a Photo shoot !

Here's another post showing my passion for hair and makeup. Every now and then I organize a little photo shoot where in I think of a concept, prepare outfits, makeup and think of the total look. The photos will go in my portfolio which is very important for me to build up. Someday I wanna work for a magazine or makeup brand but for now I'm my own boss and I do whatever I want with the look I come up with. Now that I have a team of artists CHIC CREW that assists me on weddings and special events I want them to get a feel of what shooting is like and so that they can build up their portfolio. My CHIC CREW teammates are Maggie and Chad I love to pieces and working with them is great.

Of course we cant take a serious photo.

And if your wondering why Chad looks so camera ready its because she modeled her self for this shoot.

I had Naomie model for me because I'm very familiar with her beautiful features and shes turning 18 so I wanted to create a very sweet feminine look for her.

Final Photos :)

I'm very happy with the final photos and I can see I've improved but I still have a whole lot to learn and there's a large room for improvement. I really love the process of planning, executing and finally seeing the outcome makes it very rewarding. Do have any ideas for my next shoot? Please let me know in the comments below.

With much love,

Portfolio: Hair and Makeup for Bride

Last month I did the hair and makeup for bride Ms. Desiree and she has got to be the most relaxed and calm bride I have ever encountered which made my job much easier. I love her beautiful eyes and all she wanted is a fresh look. Its always an honor for me to be a part of a clients big day even if all I do is the hair and makeup. Best of luck to the newly weds!

I use airbrush makeup for all of my brides for a long lasting fresh look.
