Wedding Digest Magazine Interview September 2013

Define what for him/her is the Professional Make-up Artist –

A Make-up Artist is a professional artist that uses medium applied to the skin to transform or enhance the best appearance of a person.

Signs or clues – A professional Make-up Artist arrives ahead of the scheduled call time. She has great character and is well mannered working with other MUAs, Models, Stylist and Photographers. She treats the client professionally and as a VIP.

Experience – Formal training from an accredited School of Make-up Artistry is necessary to gain the required skills of make-up application. Additional schooling may be necessary for specialization in areas such as airbrushing and special effects. Make-up Artists should continue taking courses to keep their skills up to date.

Skill – Always practice to perfect and improved your artistic skills. Always practice doing make-up on as many faces as possible. Make-up Artists can specialize in any number of areas and many different types of make-up and application techniques including:

  • Special Effects
  • Prosthetics
  • Theatrical
  • High Fashion
  • Airbrush
  • High Definition

Equipment -The Make-up Artist must be organized and fully equipped to take their tools and mediums wherever they are needed.

Inform what a bride should ask a prospective MUA to be sure he/she is a professional one

A professional Make-up Artist typically strives to use good quality, non-allergenic cosmetic products on all of his or her clients.

A professional Make-up Artist showcases her/his actual clients/sample make-up portfolio. The professional Make-up Artist also signs an official contract with her prospective client and provides an official receipts for payment (if available).

A professional Make-up Artist has formal training in a school of Make-up Artistry. He or she is also a Certified Professional Make-up Artist. They have certificate of completion from reputable schools and training centers.

A professional Make-up Artist may also be a member of reputable Make-up Artist Association(s).

Book a Make-up Artist you feel comfortable with, that you communicate easily with and who you naturally find yourself trusting. The Make-up Artist’s first priority is to provide beautiful make-up in the style you want, but she should also offer some moral support, help to boost your confidence and soothe your raw nerves in those last hours before you walk down the aisle.

Give tips on how brides can avoid the un-PROfessional MUA

Always ask the MUA of his/her make-up portfolio, actual client portfolio and well written/official contract and official receipts for payment (if available)

Do some research about the background of your MUA.

Avoid MUA who have poor knowledge about products and techniques and has poor sanitation.

Unprofessional MUAs oftentimes do not take formal training in any make-up school, hence they don’t have certificates of completion.

They also have no budget for high end make-up products.

And worst of all, they have a “diva” attitude.

Tell us WHAT MAKES YOU A PRO

What is your personal style in make-up (the same make-up you will use on your model)

I love to wear simple and natural make-up . Sometimes I am very experimental with my makeup. Each person has unique features. I love to re create make-up styles for each client, from classic, dramatic or trendsetting bridal make-up styles that will compliment their dress, hair & venue.

Do you have a preferred bridal look, make-up brand and make-up trend?

Actually, majority of the brides choose to have a fresh make up or almost nude/natural make up look. Filipinas still embrace the idea of being a “mayumi”, a true Filipina, a symbolize simplicity and natural beauty.

Regarding, make-up brands, I love to use good quality products like  Make-up Forever make-up products (MUFE) and Kryolan.

Aside from the above queries, we will also need you to provide us with the following:

Your full name or the name of your company/shop (please include if there is a title you prefer)

A brief narration of how you came to be a Make-up Artist

I’ve always loved the art of make-up and I’ve always been fascinated with it. I love to transform plain faces to princesses. Last December 2012 I decided that I wanted to be a Make-up Artist and I wanted to learn every aspect of make-up from beauty to creative makeup. I taught myself how to do make-up by watching a lot of online make-up tutorial videos, buying make-up books and collected make-up ideas from magazines and images on the internet and practicing on myself.

However, I wanted to learn so much more about make-up and I also learn how to apply make-up on to others. I wanted to gain valuable hands on experience in beauty culture practice, so I saved funds for my tuition fee, looked around for make-up schools in Manila. I then enrolled myself in a make-up class and the rest is history.

If you can only have ONE make-up product, what would it be and why?

This is a tough question for me but I’d pick concealer make-up products to hide my skin imperfection, blemishes and skin discoloration.

Share with us experience with past clients who asked for or needed a bridal look inspired by the islands, our culture or history.

I remember my client, the bride is Filipina and the groom is German. The groom brings all his family and friends here in Philippines to experience traditional “Pinoy” wedding and embrace our local culture. The bride wore an all Pinoy inspired custom made Filipiniana dress, and the groom also wore custom made Pinoy inspired suit. The couples incorporated as many Pinoy traditional elements as possible into their day.

The couple wanted to have the wedding as authentically a Pinoy- inspired wedding as possible, embracing Filipino culture and living the experience.”To achieve natural make-up for the bride I keep it simple and fresh. Filipinas still embrace of being a “mayumi” a true Filipina that symbolize simplicity and natural beauty.

As mentioned, this edition will have the theme Weddings. It’s more fun in the Philippines.  When related to makeup, what would the Philippines have to offer?

We could offer the diversity of our different cultures, incorporating the traditions to wedding makeup, like tribal weddings in Visayas and Mindanao. Ethnic tribes here have their own unique and festive wedding ceremonies. The make-up depends on the traditional wedding ceremony.

How long have you been in the business? How did you start?

I’ve always loved the art of make-up and I’ve always been fascinated with it. I love to transform plain faces to princesses. Last December 2012 I decided that I wanted to be a Make-up Artist and I wanted to learn every aspect of make-up from beauty to creative makeup. I taught myself how to do make-up by watching a lot of online make-up tutorial videos, buying make-up books and collected make-up ideas from magazines and images on the internet and practicing on myself.

I wanted to gain valuable hands on experience in beauty culture practice, so I saved funds for my tuition fee, looked around for make-up schools in Manila. I then enrolled myself in a make-up class and the rest is history.

Why did you venture into the wedding industry?

After I spent time developing my skills and learning different areas of makeup, I decided to enter into the bridal industry. Bridal make-up for events caught my attention and I choose it as my new career path.

What is your style principle when it comes to bridal makeup? How should a bride be made up on her wedding day?

I want to keep the bride’s look simple, natural and fresh. I use airbrush make-up to give the skin the effortless/flawless look. I love helping new brides bring out their best on their big day.

Do you have a favorite look for brides?

I really want to make brides look their very best. I love stunning, fresh make-up for the bride. For me, simplicity and natural beauty is the key to achieving great bridal makeup.

Is styling a bride different from styling any other client?

I treat all my clients equally special. I’m particularly sensitive to the needs of my client. The steps are the same but the use of colors varies for different occasions.

What preparations do you go through before you style someone?

I make sure that I know what the client wants. I listen to their concerns. I also ask what the occasion is. The make-up should complement their dress, hair and venue. I also share some beauty secrets to help them to prepare for the makeover.

How do you keep your skills and style updated?

I never get tired of reading and learning from make-up books. I keep myself updated on make-up trends by buying magazines, and attending make-up workshops. I adapt to constructive criticism. I plan to go abroad next year to take further make-up classes.
