Fairy Shoot at Mangga Studio Cebu and Mini Review

Hello everyone! Today's post is going to be longer than usual because I'll be covering more than one topic. I wanted to create a fairy character this summer break because it's the perfect time for flowers and splashes of color and whenever I wanted to have a photo shoot in a studio I always head to The Mangga Studio here in Cebu and the very talented photographer Mr. Gio S. Pesodas always delivers excellent shots and of course the model Naomie did an amazing job .

Here's a peek of the studio

I really like the studio because its very spacious, fully air conditioned and complete with all the fancy professional equipment you would need and there are couches for you sit or even lay in. I felt super bad because I had to leave after I did the makeup because I had to attend mass I'm supper sorry :(

Here are the photos of the fairy shoot I'm very happy with how they turned out you can clearly see the excellent quality of the photos and I hope you like them as well.


Photographer: Mr. Gio S. Pesodas
Model: Ms. Naomie Lee Oplado
Hair an Makeup: Yours Truly Steph-G

I wanted to post a mini review some of the makeup products I used in this look which I got from Born Pretty Store
These lashes really made the look more enchanting and colorful and they were not as tough to put on as I thought it has a very flexible lash band and even if they are huge lashes the actual hair are very light and fine so it's not too bothersome to wear.

I mixed both of the two brown color for this look and I also used the white shade for the lower lash line of the model to make her eyes appear bigger this eyebrow kit is very versatile because you can use it as eye shadow too.

Take care!

With much love,

Haul and Review : Born Pretty Store Products

I came across Born Pretty Store which is an online shop that offers a lot of products from makeup, nail art brushes, makeup brushes, accessories, clothing, and a bunch or really unique and cool stuff that would get girls like me really excited. Fortunately I got some products from the site and I want to share my review and haul.

I got some stuff that I really needed so lets get to it.

I'm always up for trying new eyebrow products so I chose this and surprisingly the tiny brush it comes with is actually usable its firm and dense.

 PROS:
- Contains a lot of product
- Has 3 different shades 
- Available in different shades

CONS
- The packaging is not the most attractive
- Comes with a white shade which I don't really understand why but it can be used for highlight

3.5/5



I like keeping mini brushes in my makeup bag for touch ups and I thought that the spooly and angled brush would work well with the eyebrow powder.

PROS:
- Small and light weight
- Firm and dense
- Versatile

CONS:
None 

4.5/5

I need these blue lashes for a future photo shoot and I love that it has a few black strands and not just plain blue lashes.

PROS:
- Has a soft lash band
- The lash hair are very soft
-has a pretty elongating shape

CONS:
None

5/5

Do check out their site and your bound to want to buy a thing or two or three :)
