Photo Diary: Joaquin’s Christening

Blogging from Baguio City. I finally got to sort photos from Joaquin’s Christening last March 31,2012 which also became a “birthday salubong” for me. I don’t know when will I be able to finish this blog post since I’m multitasking most of the time… I hate it when the maid needs to go on vacation.

Done! Not bad at all, It’s just April 7, 2012.

Ceremony was held at Villa San Miguel, Archbishop’s Palace, Shaw Blvd (which was an awesome place, by the way) and Merienda Cena at Anything goes Burgoo, Powerplant Mall, Makati City.

To Joaquin’s Ninang Karina, Ninang Lala and Ninong Kyle, this post is for you guys. :)

P.S. Yes, there were 3 cakes during the party :)

Make Up Forever and NYFW

By the time I finish this post, My sister Isabelle (urbandai.com) might be starting with her New York Fashion Week coverage.

In preparation for her fashion week stint, we did a make up tutorial with the products Make Up Forever Philippines gave her.

L-R: Camouflage Cream Concealer, Loose Powder, Face and Body Liquid Foundation, HD Elixir Primer, Aqualiner in purple, Smokey Lash Mascara, HD cream blush, Smoky Eye Color Palette and Lip color palette.

Here are the 4 looks I’ve created for her using the products from Makeup Forever.

1. Smoky Metallic-  Tired of the usual hallow black? Use metallic blue, green or purple shades to make your eyes pop. Nude matte lips balances the whole look.

2. Cranberry Lips- Pick the right Bordeaux shade of lipstick. Add a sexier touch by applying gloss. Use shimmer white or beige eye color. Apply pale and simple blush and coat lashes with mascara.

3. Monochrome Eyes and Lips- Use beige, taupe and brown shades on lids. Finish the look with glossy nude lips and peach blush.

4. Big brow and Flushed cheeks- using the HD cream blush apply in circular motion using fingertips. Line brows, use dark brown or sable shade. Set the brows with a clear mascara.

Unfortunately the photos of the looks was with her en route to NYC so I couldn’t post it here right away.
