Makeover by Arnold Padilla

Last Sunday, I attended my friend's wedding. (Congrats, Jerry and Angela!) :D I know I could've done my own makeup, by I can't do my hair to save my life. (Yes, I don't know how to work le blower and hair irons.) I initially planned on getting a haircut, but decided to have my hair and makeup done instead.

Of all places, would you believe that our go-to salon is located very near Monumento? Not so glam, but I don't mind the place if I know I'm getting good results afterwards. I've been a paying customer of this salon for almost 9 years already. (Time flies!)

FYI: 98% of the products used on me were from MAC! 2% is for the falsies and Maybelline liquid eyeliner. :D

I went for the natural look since the event would be happening during the afternoon, and I wouldn't want my makeup to look too "party". I liked the overall look, but the contouring was a bit too dark and it was visible in broad daylight. Something to take note of on my next visit.

Before & After
HMUA: Arnold Padilla

Since I am the laziest when it comes to removing waterproof mascara, I requested for falsies and I loved it! I loved it so much that I didn't remove it until I went home from work the next day. (Yes, it lasted THAT long.)

I asked Arnold on what neutral MAC lippie would suit me for everyday wear, and he recommended Cosmo. When I swatched it, I was in awe since it was the exact pink-brown shade I like. (Wishlist!) For the event, I sported the bright pink shade Lickable. (My swatch doesn't do this lovely pink shade justice.)

Would you agree that I'm finally gaining weight? Haha :D

  1. I like how the makeup itself looks so simple and elegant. The location is a bit too far from where I live but would have to keep it in mind if someone else were to visit that place or if I happen to drop by there sometime and would need a makeover.

    1. Yeah, the location is not the usual place we'd go to. If ever you're in the area maybe then you can try. :)
