my first makeup "gig"

a day after the school finals, i got a message from mom that she was able to book me my first gig. i was excited, but nervous at the same time...i am still yet to overcome being nervous when it comes to putting on makeup on other people and maybe, learn to believe in myself even for just a bit.
i thought i'd only be doing makeup for the debutante and her family (mom, brother and sister) and of course my sister, but when i went home to meet them, i was asked if i can do makeup for the whole cotillon de honor as well. i nearly choked, for that would mean putting on makeup on 21 people (12 girls, 9 boys), but of course, i said yes. LOL we agreed that i'd be just doing the makeup, and another would do the hair. whew!
i immediately thought of getting somebody to help me on that day. somebody i know...somebody i can trust...and somebody i know who could get the job done. i first thought of Sophie, but she was already booked to fly to Singapore. Darn, Sophie...and i thought you're my friend...LOL! kidding... :P and so, i thought of asking Jamie instead. She immediately gave me a positive response and so i felt relieved. for days, i've been thinking about the coming weekend...i was really nervous...terrified but at the same time excited. but i was more nervous than excited :P
and so the day came...21 heads...geesh, is it even possible? Jamie and mom kept on telling me to focus and that everything will be alright. i was counting at first, but after a few more heads, i just lost the number...and continued working. we started around 1:30pm...finished at 6:30. i wanted to jump with joy, but i laid down at first because my back's aching...and then i remember, we had to be there for retouch. yay!
anyways, here's me and jamie working hard:

and here's the two of us after the event:

(we went nuts...who wouldn't be after that long hours of putting on makeup? LOL)

but we were happy that we got the job done...'twas really fun...and memorable for my first makeup "gig" and i bet, Jamie's too!

thanks again Jamie (and the other know who you are :P) for helping me that day. i wouldn't make it without you. hope to see you soon! til next time....muaaahhzz

now, i am looking forward to my next "gig." i can't wait til the next time i'd be able to play with makeup again :)

To the Roquero family and the rest of the members of the cotillon de honor, thank you very much...'twas a pleasure working with you all!

Note: more pics to follow

jie jie good thing it isnt obvious..but we were really tired. i was so hungry and really wanted to dance the night away, kaso the crowd's really young..i felt so old. lol

hi shen, jamie has an MUA cousin who tags her along in her makeup gigs. pero jamie admitted that 'twas her first time to really put on full makeup on other ganun karami! good thing she was really poised and focused, else nawala na ako sa sarili ko sa sobrang kaba!

grabe nga sis nikki..i was really counting at firstkung nakailan na...pero after a few more heads, wala na..then when i checked the clock, 'twas almost 630pm and we were almost done! me? mabilis? cguro pero i really hope maayos pa din gawa ko nagmamadali ako. next time ayaw ko na ng ganun karami. but if jamie's gonna be there...why not, coconut!? lol
