Ruth’s wedding look

My friend Ruth tied the knot last friday, December 10, 2010 and I did her hair and make up for this special day.

I used airbrush foundation on her face and hand worked the rest of the makeup. Taupe and browns were used as eye colors and for her lips, I combined 3 shades to get this beautiful red-orange shade. Perfect for her fair complexion.

Here’s the look.

Makeover of some entourage members using traditional make up.

Since the bride is a good friend of mine, I am expected to attend the wedding ceremony and reception as well, but as a guest. So, here’s my look for Ruth and Lito’s wedding: Dress from Tyler (it was love at first sight) paired with black satin shoes and gold sequined clutch. What do you think?

Beside me is my sister Isabelle, She wore a Forever 21 ensemble and Matthews booties.

The preparation was at Bellevue Hotel, Ceremony and Reception at Fernbrook Gardens, Alabang. I wish I could post some more shots from the wedding, but their official photos were not released yet.  Maybe soon. Best wishes to Ruth and Lito!

Shop Crazy at Tyler

I went crazy buying dresses today, I liked 3 dresses from Tyler (Rockwell branch) but ended up buying 2, the other one was purchased at Tyler Shangri-la. Two weddings to attend in the next 3 weeks gave me that simple excuse to splurge on dresses.

My first encounter with this store was way back 2001, since then I kept coming back for those “special occasion clothing needs”. They have skilled sales assistants that will dress you up after answering 2 questions: For what occasion and do you have any color preference? Then they’ll bring out the items that will suit your needs.

Don’t be deceived by their windows and racks, as they normally display their safest items (everyday wear). Lovely dresses come out of the stock room when you ask for it.

Here is my most “sulit” purchase from Tyler:

Tyler black tulle dress circa 2007 and still fashionable up to now

So next on the list, gift items. As mentioned on my tweet last monday “this week is going to be a shopping week” :).
