I would usually stand behind the wall of the main entrance to the runway. There, I could retouch the models just before they stepped unto the runway. Just before show time, I remembered seeing every single model in the line up dressed in clothes that were exquisitely crafted. I will never forget that.
Eric told us that the look of the models would sport smokey eyes while leaving the brows as it is, lashes and pale lips. We were also advised to use foundation that was shade or two darker than their skin tone to avoid washing out their features. A hint of bronzer was also used to warm up their skin tone.
I have worked with Giselle and Michelle numerous times and I always appreciate it when they sit on my chair. I believe Giselle just finished her stint at The Ford Supermodel of the World contest, where she was a semi finalist and Michelle was juggling modeling and her pre-med studies.
The girls for the Fashion Watch Quartet : Lulu Tan-gan show have just been dressed and were lining up at the ball room where we were stationed when I took this photo of Jessica and Krystal.
The main focal point of the makeup for this show was the glossed out “Barbie” pink lipstick which complemented the knitwear of Lulu’s design.
Jessica and Krystal were some of the models who frequently sat on my chair throughout the Fashion Watch Series and I appreciate them for that. Jessica and Krystal for me are both beautiful in their own way and I enjoyed working with them.
I was still an apprentice makeup artist at this time and working on two women with very different features at this stage of my career has been a very enriching experience.
