SIP photoshoot

Just a quick insert ladies:

Yesterday, for the first time in my whole life, I did the makeup for a photoshoot. I've never really done makeup that will be used for um, commercial pursposes (?) Usually I'd do them for myself or for friends for parties and stuff like that. Just yesterday, though, I acted as makeup artist/stylist/"beautician" for SIP Magazine's cover photoshoot. It was my first EVER time to do a photoshoot for a magazine. When Milan, the editor, asked if I wanted to do it, I was a bit apprehensive at first but I'm so glad I said yes.

May I just say? I was thrilled. Thrilled to the bone thrilled. I was happy with the makeup (photos later!) and the photographer, art director, production assistant and editor-in-chief were pretty satisfied too. "Nag-go-glow yung model," one of the them said. Hayluvet. She might as well have said I was glowing. The instruction was makeup that would suit different types and colors of clothing so I opted for earth and neutral tones.

The model isn't morena but I'm posting it here anyway hehe. Watch out for the mag folks! It's going to be released on the second week of March, at all Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf outlets.

Hi!! Thanks for dropping by my site and thanks for your question. I've been meaning to put up an entry on basic makeup products too so your question came right on time. For now, I think you'd need foundation/tinted moisturizer, concealer, blush, lipstick or lipgloss and an eyelash curler. And of course invest in a proper skin care regimen too. I'd put up a longer entry for my next post. Thanks again!
