Makeup Finals (MDA)

There are many things I am passionate about, and one of them would be MAKEUP! 
I enrolled in a makeup course a bout a month ago at MDA, Makeup Design Academy, along Mother Ignacia street near ABS-CBN, Quezon City. I've learned so much through out the course and I'm really excited to learn more and explore the world of makeup artistry! :) 

Today, we had our finals and it consisted of creating 3 looks: Bridal makeup, Smokey Eyes, and Pop-art makeup. My little sister helped me and gladly modeled for me today :D After each look, we had a mini photoshoot. I'll be posting the final photos when they are already availabe. For now, here are some shots I took from my camera. Enjoy! :) 

FIRST LOOK: Bridal Makeup

I went for a romantic bridal look, mixing in some brown and plum colors.

Sir Glenn helped me with hair styling since I missed our class on hair 101 :( 

What do you think? :)

my lovely model amidst my messy work station..hahaha!

SECOND LOOK: Smokey Eye/Glamour

LOVE this shot! hawt ;)

I wanted the hair to be in a high pony tale to better accentuate the strong makeup.

Yours Truly! :p

my sister and I love goofing off! Exhibit A. hahaha

Finished look. I decided to tone down the lips to a more nude-ish color so that the focus is on the eyes.


Exhibit B. hahaha I LOVED THIS LOOK! so playful and full of color :)

Exhibit C hahahah

So those are the 3 looks that I created for our finals! I was really nervous the night before since I did not have time to practice these looks prior to the photo shoot finals, but I'm really glad all three looks turned out pretty decent :D

After almost 8 hours of working on these 3 looks, here you have a very tired but very satisfied artist! hahaha

If you would like me to do a tutorial on any of the these three looks, let me know! leave a comment of email me and i'll try my best to put it up asap :)

Thanks for dropping by! 


  1. hi! loved all your three looks, but my favorite is your smoky eye. i'm glad to have stopped by your blog, i'm actually also planning to enroll at MDA, so how was the experience? btw, you and your sis look so much alike, both beautiful.

  2. HI RIO! The experience at MDA was amazing! very hands on and very professional as well. I highly recommend it :) Thank you so much for dropping by my blog! will be posting the final pics from this photoshoot soon so stay tuned! :)

  3. This post is surely a big help for my sister who aspires to be a makeup artist in the Philippines when she grows up.


I'd love to hear from you! :) xx
