FOTD: A Magical Wedding Event

Last week, I attended Nani's sister's church wedding. The newly wed couple already had a civil marriage last year, 11-11-11, but having a church wedding made their love story more magical. We got to know more about the couple and their families. And it was truly a great experience for me since it was my first time to be part of the entourage. I was so excited to share the wonderful evening with Nani's sister, Ate Rachelle, and her husband, Kuya Nikko. I couldn't explain how inspired I became when they finally declared their vows. Super Kilig talaga. :) Ate Rachelle and Kuya Nikko are both lawyers and they met in San Beda College of Law during their freshmen years. They are truly inspirations to law student couples. :) SEE!!! Relationship is not a hindrance in law school. hehe. <3
Anyway, here's a sneak peek of their wedding trailer and wedding slideshow

Now a wedding event is a very special ceremony. Since I was one of the secondary sponsors, I wanted to look polished and appropriate. I was having second thoughts whether or not I would ask for a professional help with my makeup.  I didn't want to be disappointed with my makeup. First of all, I have uneven folds on my eyelid. Typical application of eyeliner would look horrible on me. Secondly, since I have uneven folds, my eyes don't look symmetrical. Certain eyeshadow colors emphasize that. Lastly, I don't like full coverage makeup. I had several bad experiences with salon MUAs so I decided to be my own make up artist. Char lang diba???

Loving my Maybelline the Falsies Mascara! :)

Me and my beautiful Mom. :) I love her very much. She's the strongest woman I've ever known.
 My mom never had the confidence to tell herself that she's beautiful but I believe she is. She's the most beautiful person I have ever known. She is a CPA but when she got married she gave up her career to take care of her children. And now, she helps my dad with our family business to support our studies. I love my mom. I can't imagine my life without her. I feel like a big part of me will die if that's gonna happen. hehe. :) My mom suffered from Bell's Palsy when I was little. And five years ago, she had undergone surgery for a heart bypass because of Aortic Aneurysm. Even now I can't believe she went through all that. I pray that on my wedding day, she and dad will walk me down the aisle. :) For that, I'll be the happiest bride. :)

Nani's sister looks like Bianca King right? So pretty! I bet her fiance felt like the groom because Ate Sheng's beauty was breathtaking that night. <3 I can't wait for her wedding. :)

  7. Damn it! Why are you so pretty? You look radiant din.

  8. P.S. And yes, your mom is beautiful. I suddenly miss mine. Haven't visited the Philippines since early 2011.

    1. Thank you, Lizzie! <3 My mom should start believing in herself. :) hehe. Are you going to visit the Philippines this Christmas?

  9. ganda ng make-up... super flawless... i love it! ang ganda din nung wedding pics... kainlove. :)

    1. Thank you, Rose! :) Nakakainlove talaga yung newly wed! :) Nakakaiyak nga talaga ang mga weddings. Tears of joy. :P

  10. one word...PRETTY!



    1. Thanks Iya! :) Ikaw nga tong pretty eh! Love your current model photos! :)

  11. my gosh, nakaka.inggit curls mo! And all the stuff you mentioned about your eyes not being symmetrical.. and your uneven lids.. they don't show at all!

    And what a superb wedding. :) To think they're both lawyers. How incredible. :)

    1. Thanks, Ile. Pinaayos ko yung buhok ko diyan kaya medyo maayos. hehe. :P Yeah, I have uneven folds. Whenever I'm stressed, my right eyelid becomes monolid. haha. Mas lalong nakakastress maglagay ng eyeliner. :P Weird kasi fold ng eyelid ko kaya if you notice I apply thicker eyeliner on the outer lid para di pansin. :P

  12. did you use the pinkiswear foundation as concealer then the colorstay as foundation?
    and is the nichido girls night pencil waterproof?
    sori kulit ko..mag babridesmaid kasi ako...i'm planning to do my own make up kasi pupunta kami sa malayong lupalop...isa lang daw dadalhin na make up artist..di ako sure baka mapaglaruan ako..gagawin ko lang sarili kong make up..
    please help...LOL

    1. Hi! Yup! I used Pinkie's Collection Cream foundation as concealer. :) then I blended it using the Revlon Colorstay foundation to make it longer lasting with a smoother finish. (If you are going to buy a Revlon Foundation, check out Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation... mas maganda daw coverage ninya! Test it sa mga Revlon COunters... magpatest ka sa mga saleslady don. Don't hesitate to ask for a free makeup application. Sulitin ang libre! hehe.) :) If you have an oily/combination skin, I recommend finishing the foundation routine by applying powder/cake foundation such as FS two way Cake Foundation, or Ever Bilena Foundation (just to keep the oiliness at bay).

      The Nichido Girls Night Out is not waterproof, and not Smudgeproof either. But I super love the intensity of its pigmentation. What I do is to set it with a black eyeshadow... (I used the black pigment in the in2it brow powder which comes in three shades, light brown, dark brown and black) You can use any black eyeshadow that you have. If you're in a super tight budget, you can simply buy the Nichido Mineral Kohl Pencil in Onyx. That one is smudgeproof but the pigmentation is not as intense as the Girls Night Out. :) Don't hesitate to ask further questions! :)
