Maternity Shoot: Dazzling Mom Shaine

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, May 24, 2017, In : Works 
My first post after giving birth is to share with you guys the first makeup booking I accepted after giving birth, two months post-partum. It was bittersweet leaving my baby girl for a couple of hours as I missed her terribly (and worried for no reason) but at the same time got really excited to be part of the universe again! I was ecstatic that my first job would be for Shaine's maternity shoot. She had our shoot at 35 weeks pregnant, just like I did last January. Besides all the pregnancy a...

Bohk Toh False Lashes

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, March 24, 2015, In : Reviews 
95% of the time, my clients request for false lashes. In my experience, false lashes make such a huge difference in making eyes look more defined and "awake". It's tricky yet so significant, I never skip this step when doing makeup on clients, except when clients refuse to have them on.

One of my favourite false lashes brand from Thailand has finally arrived Manila! No need to hoard everytime I'm in Bangkok as it's now locally available online, thanks to Nippon Esthetics.

Why is it any differen...

Guerlain KissKiss Style Icons

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, September 19, 2014, In : Events 
When I first got a call from Guerlain asking if I'd agree to be one of their style icons, I was absolutely caught off guard. One of my favorite fragrance and makeup brands reached out to me and wants me to be a part of their campaign? I was stunned with gratitude and honor and of course, I said yes.

Just to give you a quick background on how the Guerlain's revamped KissKiss lipsticks were created, let me post a few words from Guerlain's creative director.

Guerlain has chosen 12 style icons for ...

On Proprietary Rights and False Claims

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, February 18, 2013, In : Announcements 
Hi everyone! I hope you guys had a lovely weekend as I did.
This is an unusual post as I've only used my blog as a platform for mostly cosmetic product reviews and to share my works as a makeup artist. However, yesterday, I was informed by one of my previous brides that she saw her wedding photo and some of my other works in a portfolio of a makeup artist instructing in a workshop. The said makeup artist even posted some of my advertisement works and claimed that she did the makeup and hair o...

Suspension x Circuit Training

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, November 12, 2012, In : Reviews 
Another workout I've tried recently is Suspension Training, TRX being the most popular one around. Suspension training refers to an approach to fitness training that uses a system of ropes and webbing called a "suspension trainer" to allow the user to work against their own body weight.

So there I was looking up at the ropes hanging from horizontal ceiling poles in the studio, both excited and nervous, as I always am every time I try a new workout. I've already tried circuit training, but susp...

Bloom Cosmetics Make-Over

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, November 7, 2012, In : Works 
One of Beauty Bar Philippine's top brands, Bloom, had a photo contest on Instagram last month where contestants can post a photo of her and her best friend at their most blooming, and the prize was an exclusive makeup class from me! 

Despite the heavy outpour of the rain and traffic, the winners managed to arrive and had an hour and a half session of pure makeup talk with me. Here are some photos from the makeup class:

The focus was teaching the participants on how to look naturally "bloomin...

Completing the Circuit

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, November 6, 2012, In : Reviews 
When I got an invite from my friend, who almost all her life was sedentary, to try circuit training, how can I say no? Aside from the fact that it's the one exercise that made her want to exercise, I've been wanting to change up my fitness routine for days now.

Circuit training is a great way to combine cardio and strength if you're short on time. The workout usually consists of simultaneous strength and cardio exercises that are completed one right after the other, with little or no rest in b...

Both Pretty and Powerful

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, October 31, 2012, In : Make-up Looks 
As promised in my previous post on Bobbi Brown's newest book, I'm posting looks I created inspired by her Pretty Powerful book using Bobbi's To-Go kit and Extreme Party mascara. 

The To Go Palette houses eight best-selling eyeshadow shades and comes with a shadow brush; The Extreme Party mascara delivers volume, separation and flexibility all at the same time.
But before we go into that, I want to share some of the tips and tricks we learned from Kai Vinson, personally trained and handpicked b...

Makeup Talks & Seminars

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, June 14, 2012, In : Works 
It’s always been a pleasure for me to share my passion to women (and men) who are interested to learn more about makeup and grooming. Every year, DLSU, my alma mater, invites me to do half-day seminars to my fellow Lasallites on personal imaging and makeup. I only have some pictures to share, back in 2009 and 2011 where I lead a three-hour Make-up 101 class for DLSU’s LEAP day.



After some time of doing this, I’ve been asked by corporate clients to lead talks and seminars for their sta...

Plana Forma: Muscle Over Momentum

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, February 16, 2012, In : Reviews 
So there I was about to get up from bed on New Year's morning, thinking of my resolutions for 2012. I really can't think of any as 2011 has been very very good to me and I feel I've been very very good that year too. However, I looked in the mirror and realized that I might have gained a few inches here and there. My first plan was to continue doing Barre3. It has helped me tone my body, increased my stamina, made me more flexible than ever and strengthened me overall. But it's a new year, an...

It's a Holiday of Benefits!

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, November 29, 2011, In : Reviews 
Three months ago, I got one of the best news a make-up addict can ever receive -- Benefit Cosmetics is finally opening in Manila! It took so much patience and willpower to not let the news out in my blog (until everyone blogged about it about a month ago!), but I finally decided that 2 weeks before its opening would be the perfect timing to write about it. And as if my timing wasn't perfect enough, I got an invite to the sneak peak of the brand before it opens!

Why do I personally love Benefit...
