When my husband and I did a prenuptial photoshoot, we decided to just do in citruSnap Photography studio for a few happy shots that were simple, real, and just us. I did my own hair and makeup for this shoot.
Nothing says I'm back in the events scene like being at the Weddings and Debuts Expo at the PICC Forum last January 11 and 12. After having been on a long break to get myself married, I was happy to see fresh faces and hopeful brides at the expo still in the early stages of planning their big day. In spite of not having tarpaulins and a printed portfolio (my stuff is packed up in boxes as I'm moving in to a new home), I was overwhelmed by the number of women who trusted me for a makeup trial and who booked me for their wedding day.
Proud to share that my first youTube commercial has finally been released. RB's and 2 more main talents' hair and makeup by Maita Atienza.

To some extent, I'm shy about sharing bits and pieces of my private life. But there are also times when I feel I can be proud of the work of my friends and colleagues even when it involves, well, me!
This is one of them little things that I'm shy about, but it would be a shame not to display the skills of my friends at iSnap creatives. Hope you like my save the date video, I did my own hair and makeup! :)

It takes considerable talent to make someone look beautiful through makeup. But for some, the thrill is to go in the other direction – turning pretty into, well, ugly. Take special effects (SFX) makeup artist Eunice Losantas-Sevalla, who, two years into specializing in bridal beauty realized that she had a penchant for scars and…blood.
Taking a master class in SFX makeup with David Willis of Vida Studios LA/Sydney, Eunice whetted her appetite for the macabre when she was introduced to silicone and latex, bruise and burn palettes, and all sorts of bizarre prosthetics. It was there that she truly appreciated how creating characters was more than just piling on appliques and pouring on the fake blood. The real beauty, I was told, was in making cuts, burns, warts, and other garish effects look real.

Once upon a time, a geek was a wallflower. She was depicted in movies as socially awkward and super shy, sitting in a quiet corner during a party hoping someone would ask her to dance. She sure had a heck of a brain, though. But her numerous mathlete trophies were never enough make her prom queen or get the guy.
Fast forward into the twentieth century. The nerdy girl was transformed into the ultra-desirable manic pixie girl embodied by the likes of Zooey Deschanel’s Jessica Day. Sure, she’s still socially awkward. But she is confident, self-assured, and unapologetic about her adorable quirks. She has also learned how to approach the makeup counter and play up her features to her advantage, so much so, that she has somewhat become a trendsetting be-spectacled babe. And the boys? They just rush towards her faster than you can say “I’m not Josie Grossie anymore!”
