Recreating Maricar’s Birthday Look + First Impressions on the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

After a month long vacation, I am getting my “makeup hands” back by recreating the makeup I did on my good friend Maricar, who celebrated her 60th birthday.

My partner and I flew to Mallorca, Spain to be with her on this special day and I did her makeup.

As a background, Maricar was a model here in the Philippines back in the late 80’s and early 90’s. I have heard of her long before I have met her and I am grateful to the universe that I am able to call her a very good friend. Whenever we are togther, may it be in Mallorca, Manhattan, Manila, of Greece I always do her makeup. May it just be for fun.

This makeup look is also a great look for those who have Olive tones in their skin as the colors and products I used proves fitting. So I hope that this vlog will prove insightful!
