Happy New Year! Just got back from holidays/ overseas assignment in the Philippines where I did bridal make up to a good friend and also marched as one of her bride's maids. wee! It was a beautiful wedding in Bataan, or a place called, Anvaya Cove: a 3.5 hour away from Manila on a good traffic of 80kph. And yes, in the pHilippines 80kph is good!!!
Yes it is New Year's and time flew by soooo fast! My friend, Kaye is now married to her high school crush whom I also happen to meet in 2007. I met the groom en route to Las Vegas during a road trip with Kaye and Camille in the west end. So all the way from California, who would have thought love would bring Adz to Canada to continue his studies and pursue the love of his life? Love indeed is patient and kind :)
Then last year, my dad visited me at work telling me to leave work early as I HAVE to attend this couple's Valentine's party at church where only old couples usually attend. Right there and then, I knew I will be soon flying to the Philippines to attend a destination wedding :)
(Now) they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate. (Matthew 19:6, NIV)
Now, on to the aesthetic part...
BRIDE'S HMU BY: Phey
everyone wearing nothing but white. So, I followed my mood change. Inspired by the mother of the bride's peach dress, I custom made Kaye's "lipstick" to corals keeping her lips as natural as possible. As for her cheeks, I loaded her with Nar's Orgasm as it is the perfect match for her undertone; giving her the most natural cheek tint. Out on the beach, in the dark and with loads of artificial light, guess what, it worked out!! Note to self: It's good to follow your face chart sometimes but once you're out on the field, you sometimes have to balance the "plan" with your mood as an artist.
Bringing back memories, pictures says a thousand words. Watch out for those smiles :))
Somebody's glowing, can you tell? :))
(They were also Kaye & Adz' schoolmates in Saudi Arabia.)
Toronto flights got cancelled that day due to a snow storm.
This girl in the middle's sad. Not bc of the snow storm; she left her heart in California! :))
Let no one split apart what God has joined together."
