Mother's Day Makeup Tutorial

  It's been a year since I last posted here.  I've been quite busy plus got some pretty rough months last year that I never got the chance to blog or at least got inspired to do something wonderful.

  Anyway, I'm trying to get my regular self back and found it quite timely as it is Mother's Day this weekend.  My Mom loves getting her makeup done especially by me =)  And we filmed a makeup tutorial in celebration of this special occasion.  Please give my video a thumbs up, subscribe to my YouTube channel and share the love and/or my video  =)  




  Read on to see the list of products used in this video.

  P.S. I am a freelance hair and makeup artist based in Metro Manila, Philippines.  For inquiries, please send me an email at makeupbyanna888@gmail.com.

Simple Makeup for a Beauty Portrait

  Had a fun beauty portrait session with my youngest sister.  I did a simple makeup on her and just had her hair on a low ponytail.  This was a one-light setup using a large continuous LED light octagonal softbox and a reflector.  We chose a blank wall in our living room for the background.  Good thing it is white although the paint is not matte.  But it's okay, it adds a bit of texture and interest to the image.

  Read on to see how the images turned out. =)

Beauty Stash Show and Tell: Brush Cleaners

  Hi there =)  For today's post, I decided to do a quick video on the different brush cleaners that I use.  I got a couple that I take with me during gigs to allow for quick cleaning in between clients.  And the other two are more for deep cleaning my brushes at home.  The first two brush cleaners are very effective in cleaning and disinfecting my brushes.  However, I prefer to deep clean with castile soaps to restore the softness of my brushes.  




For more information on the products featured please read on.

Bridal Hair and Makeup for Juvi

  Last April 18, 2015 I had an opportunity to do a bridal hair and makeup on a client, Juvi, who found me via OLX.  She opted for airbrush makeup since the ceremony was at 2pm.  And that was a very hot and humid Saturday btw!

  Here is how she looked like straight out of the shower.  I requested for her not to use hair conditioner to prepare her hair for styling.  If you'd  like to see the final look please read on. =)

Roll-N-Go Cosmetic Bag, Home For My Brushes

Roll N Go open
  There's no such thing as too many brushes for a makeup enthusiast let alone an aspiring makeup artist.  =P  Since I've started amassing all of these makeup and tools my biggest dilemma have always been where to store them.  Sure enough I have tried brush rolls and brush canisters.  But I always end up exceeding their capacity.  =P  Good thing I came across this Instagram store selling Divisoria items and saw they were carrying Roll-N-Go cosmetic bags.  I forgot the name of the store but I remember I got my Roll-N-Go for around PhP 250 only!!!  I know they go much higher than that price at other stores so I grabbed the chance to buy from them.
