WearEveryday Manila Summer-Fall 2012 Videozine – Makeup for Bloggers Camille, Cheyser, Vern, and Lissa

I was asked by my childhood friend, Carissa, if I could do makeup for her first major video project for Weareveryday Manila.  They put out an online “videozine” for the style site featuring four of the Philippines’ popular “stylista” bloggers and their style picks for the seasonal transition from Summer-Fall.  It was a small but very inspiring jumpstart shoot project sponsored by Forever 21 that took place one month ago.  They were just opting for a light made up look with strong brows…not really a “no make-up” look…you know, just needed to give them that PRETTY obvious blogger polish.

“WearEveryday Manila is an online fashion magazine that highlights readily available merchandise and translates runway/ celebrity fashion trends into everyday wearable ensembles. Wear everyday. Fashion everyday.

HAIRSTYLIST – Renz Pangilinan, for bookings 09153727262

It was quite fun to do this shoot and my hairstylist for the day, Renz Pangilinan (parang pinsan lang lol…but we’re not “related”), and I got up at the crack of dawn to get these bloggers ready!  Step into a stream of behind the scenes photos, a combination of some of my own pics and other shots provided by “Isa” and her super hardworking team.

Live Tattoo TVC 30s Campaign – Latest aired makeup job

The LiveTattoo.ph 30s TVC is finally on the air, 2.5 days, 6 hours of sleep, around 15-20 support talents.  I understand that in the post production process lots of the faces I made up didn’t make it into the frame, except for one stretch in particular Ellore’s clip, but I’m cool with that.  That’s all across the board and it’s part of my job.  The set was AWESOME!  What a feat and of course dense little me tried to warn Syke, visual FX shoot supervisor “You guys are going to be cleaning up a lot of cables…” when it happened to deliberately be a SteamPunky theme with golden wiring to embellish the set”DUH”, knock-knock Julia lol.  In digital post production, which was what I used to do, you learn to accept the final outcome of the work as approved by the brand and in the end it is being part of an excellent whole that matters to me.  The Live Tattoo 30s TVC is embedded at the bottom.  The lead talents for the TVC made up by Jigs Mayuga are Saab Magalona, Coach Rio, and Danica Magpantay.

This is Ellore, am glad they got her for a close-up even just for a moment.  I’m sure she didn’t expect it.  We became good friends on set as we talked into the wee hours of the morning with Syke.I did blur her eyebags a bit in this shot for this still…it wasn’t as bad because it was already edited but to do the photo justice I’m just disclosing that I did.  All these support talents had barely a few hours worth of sleep for 2 days, but sometimes that’s just how we roll, folks.

 

I’m just extremely proud to say I worked on this fabulous commercial with the team that did it.  A big shout out of thanks to the Harrison Communications team: Pau Pamatmat, Grace Consolacion, Paolo Fabregas, and Mark Pahati, Provill Productions, Eddie Mar Cabiltes my hairstylist, Mara Reyes our wardrobe stylist, AssistDirek ManMan, Direk Adrian Calumpang, the Tattoo clients, Underground Logic digital post production for the edit and effects, and in particular Syke Dolero, my former officemate from UGL who kept me in high spirits at the crack of dawn.… To full post & COMMENTS...

Globe GoPlay Prepaid feat. Sarah G., Gerald, Vice Ganda – Just Aired, Another TVC Makeup job

Meet Rain, one of the support dancers I made up for another TVC shoot that just aired, Globe Prepaid GoPlay.  I had lots of laughs with her and since I had hardly any time to take any other photos here’s one of her.  She’s an awesome dancer…and I mean like a super-skilled awesome dancer, and I think her half hot pink hairdo rocks.  The makeup challenge in this shoot is that everywhere they danced it was screaming hot and I mean HOT.

The 3 lead celebrities in the TVC were Sarah G, Gerald, and Vice Ganda! It was a non-stop dance fest, imagine take after take for lots of the dancers including some members of the Philippine All Stars dance crew, that means A LOT OF SWEAT, I had to enlist my hairstylist EddieMar Cabiltesto help me out in keeping them fresh.  By the way, a lot of the time the makeup for support talents isn’t noticeable on camera, but there’ll be lots of behind the scenes videos coming up very soon where you’ll get to see more of the dance crew Rain auditioned to be a part of for this Globe TVC directed by Adrian Calumpang.  Included in the dance crew as well is utterly ripped Ryan Janus Thomas from PBB Unlimited (a taekwando and dance expert) who you can see in this off-beat BTS video by my shoot supervising friend, Syke, it’s hilarious.  This is an unlisted video, so it can’t be searched on YouTube, you can only view it where I make it available, like here.

Pardon the sound we were just using a tablet to take the video, but the joke in it was I retouched the girls lying down and Syke (cameraman and my former officemate at UGL)  said I was being all “Kevyn Aucoin” like.  Little Lynn one of the dancers said it was like doing funeral makeup and I said in that case it was a group casket, they cracked up.  Here’s a photo of the one who was taking the video, Syke, he’s the funny guy on the right next to one of Provill’s exec producers, Franny.

Later, later on Rain happily says “Of corpse not!!” over and over to various comments by Syke LOL.  As a team all of us worked for 2.5 days and came up with this 30 second ad, there are still some more TVC campaign installments coming up soon and watch out for more upcoming behind the scenes handheld by Direk Adrian Calumpang mismo.

Work Wambles and Delayed Posts

Hi, as some of you may have read on Twitter, I was swamped with a 2-turned-3 day shoot beginning Wednesday which was a wonderfully  HUGE project (I went home for 6 hours to change on the 2nd day before going back in the afternoon) and the Monday before that I also had a TVC shoot with a different director that ended at 1am.  No TVC details for both because of confidentiality, both projects were fun but I was really happy to be very busy on the big project as well.  On set I worked as an MUA on the same project team as Jigs Mayuga except he worked on the lead talents and I worked with my partner hairstylist, Eddie Mar Cabiltes on the staggering number of support talents (staggering for two stylists).  Wardrobe stylists who worked with us were Mara Reyes and Jenni Epperson.  For two and a half days I had about 6 hours worth of sleep and only God knows how many hours standing up for makeovers and retouches.  At one point but only for a moment, because there were so many support talents I felt like doing this to them instead…

Of course there were “side effects” to being busy.  I’m sure Neutrogena readers are particularly peeved that I haven’t posted my final pledge post for the BB cream challenge and those who joined the Summer Retweet Giveaway are just antsy to know who won.  I will, believe me, I will post all these I just need a moment to breathe, Dears.  After the last day of the shoot yesterday, don’t say “Yuck”, after having eaten a big late lunch at 3pm WITHOUT CHANGING CLOTHES OR REMOVING MY EYELINER I crashed on my bed at 4pm and woke up TODAY at 630am still in my jeans…that’s like 14.5 hours of sleep and that’s how tired I was.  It happens.  In spite of all the whimsical shoot chaos I had sooooo much fun.  You’ll have to forgive me though I was too focused on my work to take behind the scenes photos for that one big project.  I’ll ask other people to supply me with some photos once the commercial airs.… To full post & COMMENTS...
