This was technically my first shoot which aired several days after my second shoot (Smart). I had a bit of a laugh with myself coz of the thought that my first two jobs were suffice it to say almost rival ads. I was on set as the makeup artist for the two female support talents, but the makeup you see on them a few photos below was disapproved and pared down to a natural school girl look which I never got to shoot at the end. It was here at this shoot that I got to work on the same project team as celebrity makeup artist Lala Flores and meet the dashing shriek magnet, Xian Lim for the first time in person.
I spy a damp beauty blender and MAC Studio Fix powder in Lala’s hands for Xian’s touch ups Lala’s always so upbeat, she has you at “Hellooohhh”
Xian was a nice and good-humored talent to work with, in between takes he’d begin small conversations with us and crack jokes. I kind of got a bit embarrassed coz he caught me nodding down when I was tired hahaha!
I wouldn’t have been able to do this shoot without my trusty freelance hairstylist for the day, Eddie Mar Cabiltes (who I’ve been booked with a lot lately). He’s worked on TVCs, print ads, and magazine editorials for almost 4 years now, was a part of MEGA Fashion Crew, and he also has a hair blog at pinoyhairaffair.tumblr.com where he posts the MANY MANY projects he’s been part of.
Here are the support talents I made up, Krisha and Tasha (L-R) but honestly they’re not quite done yet here, I managed to squeeze in a moment to take their photo, but this makeup look was disapproved and changed to a more minimal look. The clients had us make them less preppy and more believably schoolgirl fresh. Watch the really QUICK, as in really quick, actual TVC of the Globe SuperFB10 promo below. I’ve just recently finished another upcoming telecom ad and have two more shoots booked for next week. God’s been really good to me. I’m so happy about where I am right now. I’d like to thank Provill productions, Cata, Abel, Franny, and Direk Adrian Calumpang for believing in me and giving me a chance to step up in my makeup career. This is only the beginning of one of the best chapters of my life.
