My Lucky Friday the 13th


Where I’m from, Friday the thirteenth is believed to be an ominous day where luck would have been nonexistent. Unlucky for some. But today, I am considering myself to be very lucky with the series of fortunate events that unfolded in the last 12 hours.

To be honest, the day didn’t really start great. Rather getting stranded for an hour and a half would be crazy. Almost missing an important event was disappointing, but everything changed when assertiveness came into play. I wanted, 100%, to be part of the women’s talk featuring Nia Taduran, who I watch every afternoon on TV at Wanted Sa Radyo. And of course, participate in the Makeup Workshop featuring celebrity makeup artist, Cezar Layno. So although I missed the first part of the session, I was able to push for participation on the workshop which was exactly what I was aiming for. (Thanks boss Ahyo for the opportunity!).

And thank God, I did. Not only was I motivated to continue with my passion for makeup, I also met these awesome folks who work to make work fun! Imagine that. 🙂

And so through meeting these brilliant people, I also got the chance to be a co-writer for the company blog! Fantastic, isn’t it?

This day is definitely one of the best I’ve had in a while and all on a Friday the thirteenth. Who would’ve thought?!



My Growing Family

As a professional makeup artist, my tools are as important as my skills since one can’t work without another. And the tools I use are, and I’m very proud to say this, growing! Yaaay!

Meet my weapons, my tools, my babies!

Meet my weapons, my tools, my babies!

I’m very proud to say that I have gained a lot of these babies to help me in my chosen profession. In my opinion, a sword can only fight so well as the hand that wields it so I always treat these with utmost care by ensuring that they are always sanitized since they are used on my clients’ skin. They are very impotant to me as JBL Speakers can be to a DJ, specially since the magic can’t happen with only half of the effort put through.

I also use most of these since, besides being a makeup artist, I am also a Customer Care consultant by day. So facing clients is a regular must, and I feel that being presentable is of an utmost importance!

In the next few blogs, I will also be feauring a few tutorials that I can share, specially since I found that there’s not very many makeup gurus who have skin like mine. Oily and tan. Now, since a lot of us Filipinas are on the tan side of the spectrum then I feel that I’d be able to help out just a bit! So I’ll see you around!
