MUA for the Lumineux Fashion Show

Here are some BTS photos from last month's event. :)

 The designer wanted an intense smokey look, so I basically just patted on lots of black on the outer corners. The model's Keren, my classmate/friend/bitch-friend in Med. Hahaha! We get along like that.

Mookie and Angela for the T-shirt contest, Prince of Persia inspired

This was my first real gig as an aspiring makeup artist. I have always wanted to be one since I was 19, and now that I'm 23, I'm still chasing this dream and I'm already gaining on it. How come I'm able to do it little by little?

I'm on a really tight budget right now cos I'm not working and still a student, I have very limited stuff and will not be able to hoard loads of makeup anytime soon, I stick to drugstore brands(except for lipsticks, which I'm most fond of) and I have a very tiny makeup case(I don't have those thingies which have wheels and lightbulbs in them. Haha). Nonetheless, I'm still going to pursue this passion of mine. :)

Live long and prosper.

MAC Marilyn Monroe lipstick in Charmed, I'm Sure

I have always loved Marilyn. Hence, when I heard that MAC was coming up with some delicious stuff in honor of the timeless beauty, I did not pass up the chance to grab at least one of the lippies!

I was really rooting for the shade Deeply Adored, but all the MAC outlets I called up had all their stocks of the lipstick sold already. I was a day late, as the launching of the collection was held October 20th, and I began calling the shops October 21st. Luckily TriNoma had a few Charmed I'm Sure(my 2nd choice) lippies left, so I rushed to the mall and got one. The color looks really nice, maybe something between Ruby Woo and Russian Red, not too bright, not too dark. It's the perfect shade. <3

I missed writing in this blog.
More in the days to come.

Live long and prosper.
