Popular Wedding Date: Father’s Day Weekend

First of all, HAPPY FATHER’S DAY to all the superhero dads and father figures in the world. God Bless you all:)

I received multiple bridal service requests for June 15th – and was still being asked if I could fit in another group just a few days beforehand! (What’s going on, brides and bridesmaids?) Make sure you book your hair and makeup services earlier, to avoid the stress of trying to find someone to do a good job for you, last minute… ;)

My first appointment was at 8:15am for Airbrush Makeup with a repeat customer, the pretty lady, Ms Maureen.… Click here to read more

Holiday 2012 Looks: Lips

Holiday 2012 Looks, Eyes or Lips, makeupByMerry

Are you going with EYES or LIPS this Party Season? Good thing there’ll be plenty of gatherings to go to. Wear pretty, bold lips to one party and smoky eyes to the other, if you can’t decide!

I’m still feeling under the weather, so I will spare you from my “Before” photos and move on to the rest of the face.

Review: Suesh Sponge Blender

I heard about the Beauty Blender back in Toronto. And Industry pals had been blogging about this mmm, what – for 2 years now? But, even just recently I saw it for sale at one of my fave Beauty Supply sources, Pure Beauty, Serendra. They sell it with the cleanser for a special offer or on its own for less..can’t quite recall the exact retail prices right now…But it’s also available from Sulit.com.ph sources for P2,399 (value P3,300) just to illustrate.

I must admit, being a fan of traditional makeup to Airbrush Makeup (although I agree that Airbrush has it’s benefits and I get plenty of requests for it), I was very happy using my egg-shaped Laura Mercier foundation sponges, with uh..her Flawless Face techniques (yes, everybody knows, I’m a Laura M.… Click here to read more
