Boss Lady Photoshoot

Hi Bellas!

Thanks for all your early bday wishes...I had a great weekend. My fabulous best friends did a whole weekend long celebration...including a yummy cake with my makeup by ren ren logo on it! I'll post pics soon. Tomorrow on my (and Alien Man's!) actual b-day, I think my boyfriend is taking me somewhere...I can't wait!

In the meantime, I'm back at work. Dang, should of taking tomorrow off for the bday but I get stingy with my vacation time! Anywho, back to makeup...

So a few weekends ago I was able to do a photoshoot for Amy...she's a publicist and internet radio host here in Atlanta, and she's Filipino!

She found me after googling and reading the article published about me on I'm sure many of you can relate, but when you find someone who's from your same background, you kind of jump on the opportunity to work witht them. There aren't a lot of Filipinos here in Atlanta, so we gotta stick together!

She wanted to do a professional type shoot to build her porfolio...where she would have headshots with power poses as well as a few casual pics. Amy is not used to wearing any makeup except some basics like eyeliner and lipstick. She definitely looks good for her age...don't worry Amy, I won't spill the beans! I started off the makeup with some serious brow grooming. We allotted an extra 30 minutes for me to pluck and trim her brows and shape them as well. I'm telling yah girls, the Anastasia brow kit does wonders!

On mature skin, I don't like to do too much. She definitely wanted red lipstick so I opted for a subtle eye with natural looking lashes. I made sure to use cream based formulas for the foundation, lipstick and blush because mature skin requires extra moisture.

In the end I thought she looked sleek and polished, yet approachable at the same time.

***Credit to MMF for the amazing photography.
