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.

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.

Take care!

My Crazy Sun glass Collection!

This is gonna be a very quick post that's why I'm not trying on these glasses but I just wanted to share with you my love for funky sunnies. These are all the glasses that I own and not a single one is plain I'm always drawn to statement eyewear because I usually wear all black so I play it up with glasses. The only issue I have with these is finding the right case for them since the standard hard case are too small. 

Katy Perry Prism Collection (Claire's)
Around Php 800.00 ($17)
This is my everyday pair because it not too weird but not too plain. I bought these years ago in Claire's when Katy Perry had her Prism Collection and there still my fave.

Php 350 ($7)
This was on sale at ALDO and I thought they were cute I don't wear these often because the lashes get caught in everything like my clothes and hair, and its difficult to find a case for them.

Escada Sport
around Php 3,000 ($64)
This one was on sale too I got these for a very good price since this was originally around Php5,000 ($106) I only wore this twice and realized they were too too big for my face and my nose shape doesn't suit the frame (Pinay nose problems :)) nonetheless I refuse to part with them.

WWW (What Women Want) SM Department Store
Php 250 ($5)
I love the design so much that we got two one for me and one for my mom. The flowers are actually screwed into the glasses but you have to be very careful because they can fall off once the screws loosen up so you have to keep tightening them. I wear these mainly on the summer or when I'm on the beach.

Which pair do you like best?
