DAY 8: Kath

Okay, I've been MIA for about 3 days now. I'm feeling kind of lazy and somewhat disturbed because of this morbidly sick movie I've recently watched --- to the point that I can't even push myself to write. My mind has been floating ever since, and I think I'm experiencing the dreadful blogger's block. I'm sure you've heard about this movie, A Serbian Film, but please don't do the mistake of watching it (or clicking the link) if you can't stomach movies or stories such as this. Alright, I know I made you curious now. =)

But I won't talk about the movie. Please, don't make me. =/ Today's post is an overdue one. But it's better late than never, right?

As I've mentioned in my previous post about makeup school, on our last day, we had a portfolio shoot. We were given the chance to choose our own models for our finals, so we can carefully study their facial structures, features, complexions, etc. We had to accomplish two looks, bridal and avant-garde/fashion and apply the things we learned in all our lessons.

The first person I originally chose to model for me was no other than my sister, because she had previous modeling experience. We shopped for clothes, accessories and even some makeup suitable for her. But 3 days before our finals, she canceled because her final exams in school were also, unfortunately scheduled on the same day. I then found myself in extreme panic mode!

I've searched my phonebook, my facebook contacts, and business contacts. But I couldn't even choose. Until as if by divine light, I saw a comment on one of my blog posts, from none other than, my blogger friend, Kath of Dear Kitty Kittie Kath. So out of sheer desperation, I gave her a call. And she said yes! Thank God!

Fast forward to the day of our photo-shoot, Kath was the early bird at the studio. She even got there before me, and way ahead of the other models. Now that's very professional!
 
I wasn't able to take a lot of photos of her bridal makeup. I completely forgot all about it! But the official photos will be given out soon, so keep posted. =)

What my "bride" wore that day. =)
Kath Before Makeup

Kath is very fair. She's between NC15 or 20. I had no major problems with her, aside from a few minor breakouts and some pimple scars. She told me she was sorta stressed out for the past few days that's why she broke out a little. The skin around her eyes is dry as well, but over-all, makeup application was a breeze. However, I had to re-do her eyeshadow because she's too fair-skinned that the normal highlight shades become invisible on her! That's how "maputi" she is! =)

And finally for avante-garde makeup. I didn't want to work with too many colors for my chosen look, instead I wanted to emphasize on blending the colors purple, black and silver. I practiced this look during Day 6, but my model that time wasn't so fair-skinned, that's why it took me a long time to make her skin pale. But with Kath, it was easier.

Now brace yourselves, because the very shy and soft-spoken Kath has finally come out of her shell. And boy, she came out beautifully! She just poses so well in front of the camera. She must have done a hundred shots, (I lost count, haha =) and she's so game for it. Good job sister!

Lovely, right?

Thanks again Kath. I owe you a lot. =)

Chay! Thank you again :) Your post is very overwhelming. Sana maganda lahat ng pictures. Nahihiya and medyo nervous talaga ako sa bridal photoshoot but based on your own camera maganda naman yung outcome. Saka ang galing talaga nung makeup mo :) Dami nag-like sa photos ko. Thank you din dahil nagkaron ako ng bagong friend na tulad mo. At least now I can share some of my thoughts and other random things. Hehehe
