Aha!! YouTube finally made way for my video to come rolling right in (after almost a dozen tries) and I’d like to present my very first video tutorial embedded at the bottom of this post in which I demonstrate how I apply gel eyeliner, no tomatoes please. This also serves as a review slash product comparison for Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner (whew) and Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner. A few lovely blogger friends have been requesting that I post a video on how I do my eyeliner so finally here it is with a bit of initial reluctance. I am admittedly a bit of a goofball when it comes to being in front of the camera, so you’ll have to forgive me and my point and shoot cam kind of has a subtle lens distortion that makes my face bulge in the center, so I look obviously different in person . Next time I’ll be more composed and organized plus will have better lit and clear surroundings.. This photo by the way was taken late last year but I am using the same method and product as in the video so it’s perfect as one of the introductory … Read the rest
Begin Body Beauty with Jillian Michaels’ 30-Day Shred Series – The Sensitive Subject of Starting Sexy
Getting started is always I believe nearly half the battle in trying to set a good habit in place. Physical fitness is the subject I’ve been most avoiding on the blog simply because I could never get started properly and be a sweating good example to you all. I’m a bit tight financially at the moment so a paid workout program in a swanky all setup gym is just not yet in the budget range. There was a time when I was more mobile physically, especially when I went on Living Asia Channel tours throughout the country as a writer, you can see how confident I was once upon a time in this photo taken by a fellow writer four years ago when I used to jump and flip all over the place especially at the beach. Hello, thunder thighs. I know for a fact that no matter how much I workout my thighs will always have some level of heft, I’m special that way.
If I could afford it, I’d go and do Barre (check out Rockwell and inside the Spa at BGC Fort) which is a stretching combination of ballet and pilates. Pole dancing looked physically promising and … Read the rest
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 … Read the rest
