36th Week Sneak Peek

We were advised by my OB-Gyne last friday that I might deliver anytime this week. Way too early from my 3rd week October due date. So, we decided to have the maternity shoot as soon as possible. And here is a sneak peek.

An in-house/ DIY production by Jay Jallorina and Aby Valentos.

After 9 months, I finally had the guts to have a nude photo taken… with my baby bump.

Sneak Peek: UrbanDai’s Style Portfolio

Stuck here at home… alone, I opened Intet’s pictorial files. Excited to post, I decided to give you a sneak peek of her style portfolio.

I cropped 1 shot so you guys can take a closer look on the make up I did for this shoot and here it is.

Make up details: Base-MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation;  Eye Color-MAC Paint Pot in Nice Vice and Make up Forever in Black;  Blush-NARS Orgasm; Lips: MAC Viva Glam II

Nanette + Oliver wedding photos

Wedding was held last January 9…

Thanks Nanette for the heartwarming testimonial…

“I want to thank Aby and her team for my hair and makeup during my wedding.

I chose the airbrush and it looked so natural and it really enhanced my features. It’s the perfect wedding look. The makeup she used was comfortable on the skin and it lasted for the whole night. I have oily skin so I was worried because I always have problems with makeup smearing or melting, but I didn’t have a problem at all.
Aby retouched it and made my eyes smokier for the evening reception. Her style is subtle and quite classy. A lot of my friends complimented my makeup.

Her team also changed my hair for the reception, which I loved. The hairstyle they did was perfect for my long hair and my fascinator.
The curls were cool because they looked hip but at the same time, it still looked done up.

I’m really extremely pleased with everything  and would recommend Aby to all my friends”.

Brides of 2010

It is important that a bride should feel a million dollars on her wedding day. Make up should feel natural, weightless and comfortable and most of all it should last all day.

Here are the my lovely brides for 2010:

It is also essential for a bride to have a relaxed, calm and fun atmosphere on her wedding day. Cut your errands and get a mobile make up artist, no trips out to the salon on that big day is just one relaxing experience.

P.S. Some are done using the conventional make up technique and others using airbrush technology.

Wildlife shoot

Last Saturday, commercial photographer and Canon Brand Ambassador, Jay Jallorina asked me to model for him while he tries out a new lighting combination. I donned my self designed dress in animal print. Yes, we’re also against animal cruelty, but my dress needs a little public attention. Here are some of the results of my “hard work”.

People think that modeling is easy.  It is actually difficult. “Modeling entails a lot of patience, pain and a whole lot of rejections. It’s a glamorous life that almost everyone is attracted on.”
