additional info on the client:
- Kamille is one of those girls who does not need makeup & would still look pretty... 
- client has a very smooth skin with no blemishes or break outs at all... if you notice on my products list, I didn't use any concealers.... she only has very few freckles & that's it!
- Kamille wants a smokey eye that is a little darker than the traditional neutral bridal look colors... 
- she also wants a nude lip but I'm thinkin I might change her lip color for the reception to MAC Pink Plaid... I just think it would go well with her complexion
- Kamille is a very straightforward person... she will tell you what's up & I must say I like that in a person... 
- she also has a very bubbly personality... I think those two characteristics go well very perfectly together!! you can be honest about your opinions & be funny about it at the same time...
- she reminds me of Angelu De Leon, a Filipino actress... (to all my Filipino readers who are familiar with her) don't they look alike????

behind-the-scenes pix...

Kamille's wedding will be on the 2nd of May... I'm so excited to do her makeup on the actual day... =) she's gonna be my first bridal makeup!! yay!!


  1. hmm, I'm not sure if it's the lighting but one of her outer Vs looks darker than the other, she does look beautiful though, you do wonderful makeup !

  2. Thank you for the complements. I also enjoyed working with Ate Annette, she's very patient and really do listen to what you want. I felt really comfortable working with her and with me being so hyper and everything made it difficult for her to do our trial, but she put up with me. :) If you live within central coast definitely look her up. I highly recommend her. Very sweet and fun to work with.

  3. It's a pretty look! And yes, she looks like Angelu de Leon nga. :))
