Living the dream!

Please grab a copy of Chalk's 10th Anniversary Issue
featuring Kim Chiu on the cover =)

I am no Kim Chiu (a local celebrity here in the Philippines) but I can definitely say that I am living a dream! One year ago, I wouldn't have thought that i'd be doing what I am doing now. When I took a 6 month vacation to think about what to do with myself, I didn't think that this is where I would end up.

Funny how everything all comes together before you even realize it. And this blog, which I started out of boredom, turned out to be the storybook of how I got to where I am at the moment. Now, I have a part of my life in my own little space on the internet for me to read someday and reminisce. hahaha!

Anywayys, was super lucky to have done makeup for this months issue of Chalk. 10th anniversary issue, no less! how monumental! haha Me and Caby were tasked to do makeup on 2 college beauties who also talked about how their own style has evolved in the last 10 years. I loved that we asked how they normally do their own makeup and added our own twist to it. Wee! anyway here are the scanned pages (thanks Cabs! )

Wee! =)

Getting your work published in a magazine, is such a dream come true for someone who is pursuing a career in Makeup. And to have this and the Lifestyle Asia, overwhelms me when I think about it hahaha. And so a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has made this possible, everyone who helped shove me right along this path haha =)

Words are not enough to express my gratitude but THANK YOU, thank you, thank you to Michelle Katigbak-Alejandro for this wonderful oppurtunity, RB Chanco for being the most wonderful mentor in the whole wide world!!! and Chad Tyler Meadows for the amazing photos!

And that ends my Oscar speech *bow*
Have a great weekend everyone! =)
