Paez Summertime

Loove loovee!

Paez Shoes was started by 3 friends who wanted out of the corporate world. They started selling Paez to their friends and relatives on October 2006 and by November 2006, they quit their jobs after realizing the brand's great potential. They had their brand launch October 2007, and by then, they were already exporting to countries such as South Africa, Bolivia, Uruguay, Paraguay, Netherlands, etc.

Paez Philippines is the only distributor in Asia. Paez shoes is made of a leather insole that provides comfort to the feet and is so comfortable to wear, especially when taking long walks or travelling. It is also made of EVA rubber sole, which cushions the feet with every step.

Had a chance to do the makeup for Paez for their Summer 2010 Launch at Fiamma. I saw Vania wearing the Salmon Pink espadrilles when we had a shoot for Vanilla Label and I thought it looked uber cute and comfy! While preparing for the fashion show, I kept looking at the shoes and couldnt decide which one I wanted haha.

You may view some of the other designs at their website PAEZ PHILIPPINES or follow them on facebook to get the latest updates PAEZ FACEBOOK.

Brought Caby along to help me with the Makeup :)

Tales from Africa

I don't know where to begin when i think about the roller coaster ride my life has been the last few days haha. But I'm grateful and super thankful for all the opportunities and learning experiences. Gah! Sometimes, I feel like im dreaming and when I get home after work I contemplate whether what had happened earlier in the day was just part of my dream haha.

But anyway, this is a short post just wanted to share a few photos from a shoot I did last weekend. Had a chance to work with Jamie too bad I didnt get to take a photo with her haha. She did the makeup for the other model for Top Picks Clothing's Tales from Africa Shoot.

Brushes: M.A.C 212

My new favorite brush! This is something I can't live without! Got to try this, when a friend left hers with me. I didnt like it at first, but needed to use this after my other brush retired. It takes some getting used to, but once you get a hang of using it nothing can compare to it!

M.A.C. 212

Flat Definer Brush

Info from the M.A.C. website:
Lines and define the eye with colour. Firmly bristled, flat of shape; applies colour in a stroke to provide instant definition. Use with powder, liquid or cream products. Synthetic.

What I like about it:
- Its firm, I hate brushes like these that are too soft and flimsy. You need a brush that's firm when youre lining or making lines.
- It allows you to make precise and clean lines

What I dont like about it:
- Its a bit wide (about half an inch?) which makes it hard when youre drawing or making curved lines. This is why this brush takes some time to get used to.

The Damage: 1,500 Php or $21

Worth it?: Imo, yes. I cant live without this brush and use it daily. Although, as ive said over and over again it takes some time before you get used to it. Id suggest playing around with it at a counter before purchasing =)
