MAKEUP BY G: My Addiction, My Passion

Hi guys! I am a really really REALLY bad blogger. I haven't had any blogger responsibility done for the longest time and I'm really sorry. I have a lot of career responsibilities to deal with and I have been really busy. But to make up for the hiatus, I wanna share to you one thing that I've been doing for over a year now - DOING MAKE UP.


At first, I was pretty hesitant in pushing through with this makeup thing. I just started off doing my own makeup just so I wouldn't look too pale or too "haggard". Then I did modeling for just a short time, but it was during those days when I realized that I HAD to learn putting on decent makeup and not just patting on powder and applying lip gloss.

It was pretty hard at first. I really didn't know what to do. But time passed and there's this thing called "internet" too. I learned every single day. From choosing the right colors to applying makeup on the right places, depending on facial shapes and attributes. Then eventually, I learned to love doing it, that I felt like sharing this passion to others and showing the world this art that I chose to love and live with every single day of my life.


So now, I've decided to let the artist in me grow alongside my lipstick, blushes, palettes and brushes. These photos are some of my works and I hope you liked them. This won't stop here. I'll continue doing makeup and I will show you all my upcoming works soon too.


Should you decide to put on some makeup for your special occasions, I would be greatly happy to do that for you.

Boy in Me

It's been really really hard for me to post regularly and it actually pisses me off. But I've been really busy and I can't find much time to blog and yes, I am a very bad blogger... sad :(
But still, I promise to blog in every free time that I have and I hope all of you, my dear readers, will still be there to support me and follow my posts. I'd be very grateful if you do! :)

So here's another look that I feel so comfortable with. As a kid, I really loved to wear closed shoes, especially rubber and boots. I have always felt comfortable wearing them. It's like I didn't always have to worry about acting so girly all the time and I could run around if I wanted to. Well, I was such a boyish kid. And up till now, I still have that little boy inside me. I'm not a skirt person as you see. I really love pairs of shorts and leggings since they make me feel so free to move, don't you agree?

The denim shirt and the vintage-printed inner made me feel more comfortable. They're so me.

So how about you? Were you boyish as a kid and are you still like that till now? Does that reflect through the clothes you wear? Tell me and post a comment below! :)

Get Loose

Been really busy and I hardly find free time to blog so now that I have a few minutes, I'm taking this opportunity to post!

It's been really a hot summer and I can't stand the high temperature. Loose clothes greatly help beat the heat! Gotta stay fashionable and comfortable still.

So, how do you like it? :)

Make up like a PRO: A Summer Beauty Workshop by Micah Zurita

 Before I start with this post, I would first like to apologize for being absent for a LONG time. I've been really busy with work lately. I didn't really have the time to blog anymore despite my hunger for it. But now that I already have enough time to blog (I believe so), I guess I could regularly update again. So, I hope you're still there to support me, my lovely readers!

Okay, so on with this post.

I have been doing hair and make up for a number of clients. I've been doing this for a while now. I always tell others that I never had the chance to take up my oh-so-ever-longed-for course which is Architecture, so instead on drawing on paper, I made the human face a canvas instead. It has been really fun doing make up. But I still know that I have a lot of room for improvement, so I decided to come to a beauty workshop last Friday, March 22, to learn more about it.

The event was called, "Makeup Like a Pro, A Summer Beauty Workshop by Micah Zurita"
That day, we were taught to do everyday makeup, which I don't normally do to myself since I never thought that brown shades would look good on me. I was so happy to know about the topic plus the model didn't have chinita or chinese eyes. I was so used to my singkit or small eyes, hence I was really glad to see how to put makeup on another eye shape. I really learned a lot that day, especially on learning how to put super light but pretty everyday makeup coz I am really used to doing the night makeup. I really look forward to attending more workshops by Ms. Micah Zurita and I really recommend every girl in town to attend her upcoming workshops. It was so easy to learn because she does everything step by step and she even came up with a little set up for each one of us so that we can also apply what she taught us during the workshop! Being hands on was the best.

Dinner is served! Gotta pay attention to our stomachs after 5hrs of makeup workshop! yum!

Thank you so much, Micah, for a really fun experience of learning basic makeup. I really learned a lot.

Maybe soon, I'll do a vlog on different makeup looks that I do for my clients, and looks that people request me to do. What do you think? :)
