One of a Kind Dreeses from Aisle Style

I came a across a new site Aisle Style and offer a huge variety of long prom dresses, short prom dresses, backless prom dress you name it and they have it. I was going through their stuff and I thought that I'd share my Top 3 Picks their quite different form each other so there's something for everyone. They also carry cheap dresses which looks stunning and wont hurt your pocket as much. If your not looking to buy a dress right now this may also serve as inspirations for our look on a special occasion. 

 This one is definitely a head turner, even if its a soft neutral color you will surely stand out. The details and bead work is amazing which will photograph well it remind me of the dresses that pageant girl wear. 

This pink number is adorable and playful. Its shows just the right amount of skin its very simple the way that they made it two piece really makes it different and interesting. This would look great for outdoor parties or even inside. 

I just had to pick out a wedding dress I love the different textures of this dress, it has a very feminine lace top with long sleeves makes it look very elegant and sweet then paired with a fun layered skirt And not to mention the beautiful backless design.

I hope you enjoyed looking through my picks and please tell me which one is your favorite.
Thank you for reading!

Hair and Makeup for Ms. Cristal and Ms. Naomie

I recently did hair and makeup for Naomie for her 18th birthday and Cristal for her Ring Hop ceremony. Here are some of the photos of the look I did.

For Cristal's ring Hop Ceremony I did a dark eye look with red lips because that was what she requested, she wore a beautiful red gown so she had a little red theme going on. We kept the hair up so she wont be bothered during the event and it suits her off shoulder gown. 



Namoie had a very unique 18th birthday instead of the traditional formal parties debutantes usually have she opted to keep it fun, colorful, and festive. Here party had a Colors and Lights Festival which meant a colorful eye look and a more chill hair style. I will include some photos of the party so you would have an idea of how that event was set up. 

Instead of 18 Roses she had 18 shots
After the party she had colorful powder thrown all over the place and all over everyone.

Thank you so much for reading!
Take care!

Benefit is Here in Cebu! Products, Prices and Photos

If your from Cebu you most probably already know that benefit opened a boutique in SM Seaside which is really exciting because we dont have a lot of high end or high street makeup brands here in Cebu. So when I visited the store I took some photos of the products available and their prices, sorry if the photos are not taken that well I just used my phone and I was kinda rushing because I was thinking that taking pictures is not allowed. I didnt get to photograph all of the products but I did manage to snap a hand full.



They have like a mini make over station where the offer brow grooming and waxing. I really want to try their Eyebrow tint because one of the girls in the store said the tint can last up-to a month!


I rally like the layout of the botique because it spacious, neat, and very pink. Let me know if you find this kind of post informative because I will be doing more to keep updated with the products and prices. Thank you so much for reading!

Makeup for Bride Ms. Krisdell

I was so happy when my friend Krisdell asked me to do her makeup for her and her husbands big day, a girls wedding will always have a special place in her heart so being part of the preparation is always an honor.I used airbrush makeup for her and I kept the look light, fresh and emphasized her eyes. Her hair was kept up so she would be more comfortable throughout the ceremony and reception.

 

Congratulations to the newly weds! 
Thank you so much for reading!
Take care!

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!

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.
