In my previous post, I introduced my good friend Cathy and the rest of the
I have been conducting my Makeup Essentials, Tricks’n’Trends, Art of Airbrush and International Bride classes, and tailored personal classes here. So, you’d think I’d want to go elsewhere for my services, just to get away or for a change but nope -the B&C staff make all their clients feel relaxed and special, it’s near my place and far enough from the busy mall traffic to give me the peace and quiet I crave when I go for a pampering. Oh, and they serve good coffee!:)
Here, I have my brows threaded (P180); underarms waxed (tmi! haha) P350); and have enjoyed their Ultimate Spa Mani and Pedi (P450/P550) enough times to refer them to the fussiest friends (and mum!) who all agree that the girls know their stuff and give one of the most detailed, long-lasting mani/pedi’s we’ve experienced:) And I’ve even tried their Gel Polish (P650) and loved the long-lasting glossy effect!
I’ve seen new clients wonder in (my makeup students included!) and get all girly upon seeing the clean pink and white interiors, then get excited over seeing how there are cool accessories and makeup, bath & body products and hair products for sale there, too! And it’s always great to see regular clients come and leave the place again and again happy & satisfied after a nail, massage, waxing service Etc, and especially after a hair & makeup service- right at the studio’s makeup station. It’s one big happy family:)
Take a peep through these photos (click and view as a slide) and see for yourself! You might even meet the lovely owners when you come in! Makeup artists Cathy Cantada-Dizon and Stacey Tan Gana-Bravo, often service their clients at the studio and, along with Isabel de Dios open and close Belle and Cat and play receptionist themselves. Cathy’s brother Chris- is a silent partner and does the marketing and promo job for the girls (graphics designed by makeup/graphic design artist Stacey!) whenever he’s not on tour and busy with his Heartbeat CD concert tour. Yes, (so that’s why the name sounds so familiar!) he was the drummer for Filipino band Sponge Cola before releasing his self titled solo artist album last year- I got a signed copy! (Hehe yay!)
