It was an early start for hair and makeup last September 6, 2014 πŸ™‚Β  I really don’t mind waking up in the wee hours of the morning.Β  It’s so peaceful knowing almost everyone is still asleep πŸ™‚

One beautiful Sunday last March 3, 2013, I was so excited to head over to Intramuros, one of my favorite places in Manila, to do makeup on another lovely bride, Casini πŸ™‚

She was checked in at The Bayleaf Intramuros, a new hotel that just opened late last year. Β It was a really nice hotel and the staff was very helpful. Β I bring around five bags whenever I do weddings and you can tell when the staff is more than willing to help you. Β At Bayleaf, they were happy to help πŸ™‚

Beautiful Aiya

10 Nov

Yesterday, November 9, 2012, I was in the company of another beautiful bride, Aiya πŸ™‚

At 9am, Manila Peninsula Hotel, the wedding preps for hair and makeup would begin πŸ™‚

A glamorous pair of wedding shoes

Classic wedding bouquet. Β I just love the simplicity of this bouquet. White on white, just looks breathless.

But the one who looked absolutely breathless in her equally stunning gown by the talented Sassa Jimenez was Aiya…

Aiya looked stunning. Β It seemed like she was sitting on a bed of clouds πŸ™‚

Beautiful Aiya!

She wanted her wedding makeup color palette to stick to warmer tones using gold and brown shades for the eyes πŸ™‚

It was such a pleasure doing her mom and sister’s makeup, too. Β Three beautiful ladies in one day! Β This is why I love my job. Β Doesn’t the mother of the bride look like a bride herself? πŸ™‚

Many thanks to my partner, RJ Dela Cruz, who styled all their gorgeous hair that day πŸ™‚

Aiya, congratulations to you and Bert! Didn’t get to meet your groom but he is definitely one lucky guy! πŸ™‚

Thank YOU, Aiya πŸ™‚ Β I really feel blessed to have been part of your wedding day! Best wishes to you both!
