Zalora September & October Lookbook

I was privileged to do the makeup of Model Jhenn OlivarΒ and Brian Wilson for the Zalora September & October lookbookΒ and Zalora’s website too last September 3, 2012 at their Makati office πŸ™‚ And Anina, a MUD colleague of mine did Sabina Lopez’s last September 5, 2012.


Makeup: Hannah G. Roa and Anina Abola (from Wet n Wild)

Models: Jhenn Olivar from Reign Agency, Sabina Lopez & Brian Wilson

Photography: Pat G

Styling and Layout: Enzo MontaΓ±o


Conversing with Jhenn during our lunch break and while I put makeup on her was very enticing. Not only was she pretty, with the true Filipina beauty but smart as well πŸ™‚ Reminded me of some model friends I’ve been aquatinted with. It made the shoot really fun and enjoyable πŸ™‚

Seen below are the photos seen in Zalora’s website and lookbook.

Please do check out Zalora’s September & October Lookbook online: Β

Here are some photos taken with Brian. Too bad you can’t see his freckles cause I really did a hell of a job covering them for the shoot πŸ˜€

Sorry was not able to take a photo with Jhenn cause she was still shooting pics for the looks when I had to leave 😦 But never the less, she was spectacular. Stellar in fact πŸ™‚



Bestie’s Sapato Manila launch :)

A launching for my best friend, Monique Borja’s shoe design was placed and scheduled.

Unfortunately it wasn’t printed in this e-vite but this was last July 26, 2012. A Cocktails and Heels launching party.

As promised in my previous blog,Β Photo Shoot for Bestie , here is the final shot that Sapato ManilaΒ decided on for my best friend’s picture for her debut on her shoe design. Ain’t she just beautiful and calm?! πŸ™‚

Also shown is the shoe that she designed, named after her πŸ™‚ Her picture above just exudes the presence of her shoes πŸ™‚

Here is a small bio of what Sapato Manila mentioned about her too. You can check her out and take her classes as well in Bliss YogaΒ in Makati or in her own branch in Greenhills πŸ™‚

Glad for you gang! and I congratulate you for a great opportunity! Well done and God bless always! πŸ™‚


Forever21 Fashion Show



Forever21, an American chain of a bunch of clothing retailers, has opened yet another store in the Mall Of Asia (MOA) here in the Philippines. To make the grand opening a huge success they organised a fashion show a day before the opening, to showcase the latest trends and outfits that you can avail off in the store, last July 26, 2012. And I was one of the privileged Makeup Artists fromΒ MUD ManilaΒ that was part of the Makeup team along side with my other MUD graduates, Erica de Leon, Diana Malyn Gagelonia, and Jezreel Balono πŸ™‚

Love, Love, Love Makeup! and love, love, love the team πŸ™‚

Had so much fun and love FOREVER21 πŸ™‚



August 10, 2012. Just another work day in the office, and so I thought πŸ™‚

Moving back to CDO to work on some family business that I left hanging made me miss putting on makeup on people, so I thought to just give my sister an endearing make-over πŸ™‚ At least it’s a new face for my hands to work on since I’ve haven’t practice on her cause she’s mainly here in Cagayan de Oro. So here is her chance to experience my expertise in the beauty of makeup πŸ™‚


and After:

Good thing she had some occasion to go to, at least my work was not wasted on just washing it after πŸ™‚

My lovely sister! ❀

Star Magic’s 20th Anniversary on ASAP!

The perks of being a Professional Make-up Artist is when they call you and ask for your expertise to do make-up on celebrities. What joy it is to give the best and make the best out of people who already look their best.

This was for this noon-time show every Sundays on Channel 2 (ABS-CBN) called ASAP and this was last July 8, 2012. call time? 7am πŸ˜€ Β – I’m not a morning person but with makeup gigs I found myself easily accepting waking up at the crack of dawn, even earlier, because I love what I do. πŸ™‚

Here are some back stage photos of the ones I did make-up on πŸ™‚

I did Jan Marini’s makeup here.


I did Airbrush foundation on this celebrity here and Anina did the rest. Beautiful bone structure! πŸ™‚

and I did full on airbrush makeup on him as well πŸ™‚

Sorry don’t quite know their names but I will research who they are and post them soon πŸ™‚ Not quite a TV person πŸ˜€

And here’s the MUD crew that made this day grand! With (from L-R) Me,Β Rea Pinpin, Cai de Leon and Anina Abola. Was fun working this gig with you all. πŸ™‚

And the final result of Jan Marini, click here!

Hope you enjoyed like I did! πŸ™‚

Photo Shoot for Bestie!

I’ve always asked my best friend, Monique, to be one of my models for a day when I was still studying in Make-up Designory Manila. The opportunity never happened until today, July 12, 2012 πŸ™‚ An opportunity came up for her and she asked me to do her makeup for this photo shoot she had for SapatoManila (located at the 2F Archaeology, Powerplant Mall Rockwell). Of course as my best friend, I said YES! πŸ™‚ The shoot was shot at her studio, Bliss Yoga Manila, Greenhills branch.

Just a little side tracking, she teaches yoga both in the Greenhills and Makati branches of Bliss Yoga Manila. Try out her classes or any of their classes and you’ll come out revived and rejuvenated πŸ™‚ It really is BLISS!

πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Here are the before and after photos, the photo of the final product of the shoot will be posted as soon as I get a copy. But for now just enjoy these photos πŸ™‚

By the way, so proud of my Bestie’s new shoe that she designed for SapatoManila:) Wasn’t able to take a photo of it but it’ll be launched soon. So please check it out when they showcase it in their store, and get a pair! πŸ™‚ Β It’ll definitely be of great taste.

And the last photo of the day,Β BESTIE Lβ™₯VE!

Friends as my Models

One great thing about having friends is that I can ask them to be my models for my Portfolio. Ready with a starting up stylist, Angela Ines also a friend of mine, to style up the models and herself to make the look more realistic. And a professional photographer, Oliver TamΒ and his team, ofΒ Art Movement StudiosΒ to make the looks more vibrant and lifelike.

Here are just ones of my favorite shots.

Hope to make lots more in the future and probably work with the same photographer πŸ™‚

Thank you to my friends Angela Ines and her sister Cla and to Sherrill Jallorina-Lagman for your time and good looks πŸ™‚
