Claudette

21 Apr
Another wonderful highlight for 2020 is the wedding of one of my bestfriends, Claudette. Clauds and Peter got married last January 17 and it was one of those days that I did not want to end. I got to spend the entire day with my high school barkada, got to celebrate and witness the beginning of Clauds’ and Peter’s new life together as husband and wife, AND we got to wear sneakers all day! Thank you, Clauds, for those shoes that are now one of my faves to wear! Haha!

Sharing with you some snapshots by NQ Modern Photography.

And here are some snapshots I took right after we did Clauds’ hair and makeup. Clauds’ hair was styled by one of my faves, George Aliben. Thanks so much, George, for the vavavoom hair!!! I also chose to use my Huda Beauty Nude Eyeshadow Palette on Clauds’ eyes plus lashes from Bohktoh to bring out her beautiful eyes even more.

Clauds has flawless skin so I just added bronze highlighters on her cheeks. I love Laura Mercier’s Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder. What I used on Clauds was No. 5,
Medium to Deep.

This photo pretty much sums up the entire day. I love this photo of Clauds so much. I don’t remember what we were laughing about exactly but I felt so much love and joy all around! Wish we could go back to this day and just celebrate Clauds’ and Peter’s wedding all over again. That was a wonderful day indeed.
Also special thanks to our dear friend, the super talented, Maureen Disini, for designing all our gorgeous gowns. These are my beautiful high school besties: (starting from the left) Dom, Angela, Clauds and Isabel. We are missing our other bestie, Emma, who celebrated with us through FaceTime in Sydney. Hahaha!
Can’t wait to give you a big hug, girls!!!
Looking forward to that day. Love you all.

One of the highlights and best moments of my 2020 so far.  Last January 3, 2020, two of my “kids” from our Church Choir got married.  I still couldn’t believe how much they’ve grown.  I met Alexa and Javier when they were about Damien’s age, around 11-12 years old.  They have always remained to be such responsible, wonderful and talented human beings with the kindest of hearts. I would see them every Saturday for our 6pm Masses and it’s really something I look forward to.  Something I miss so much during this lockdown.

     Every time I am given the chance to be a part of someone’s big day, I get way too excited. But even more when the couple are my friends from way back. So when Alexa and Javier messaged me to do Alexa’s hair and makeup for their wedding, I blocked the date right away.  Of course, even if I wasn’t the makeup artist, I would still block the date. HAHAHAHA!!! Coz I wouldn’t miss this day.

Sharing with you some beautiful snapshots from their wedding.  Look at me, so happy to get started with Alexa’s makeup. Haha! These photos were captured by the talented, Gary Aguilon.  Love the photos!

It’s veil time. Always one of my favorite moments during wedding preps. It’s the moment when brides realize “This is it!!! There’s no turning back!” Hahaha! Just kidding.
Mr. and Mrs. Alexa and Javier Gomez.
Why you so pretty, Alexa??? Hehe… Thank you for making my job so easy. Love Alexa’s flawless and glowing skin. Used earthy hues for the eyes. Makeup is never about masking… but enhancing. Yes 🙂 Here are some photos I took after doing makeup.
Hair wasn’t completely done yet here.
Congratulations once again, Alexa and Javier!!! Damien and I had the best time at your wedding. Thank you for making us a part of it. Can’t wait for the day when I will send you guys this message again, “Who is available to sing for 6PM Mass on Saturday?”
Hoping this message will be sent to you soon. See you, Alexa and Javier!
