Behind the Scenes: LuLu Makeup Photoshoot

After being postponed due to the strong typhoon last week, the photoshoot for LuLu Makeup finally pushed through. The venue was held at the Camera Cart Studio at Sikatuna Village. The shoot started at 1:00PM and we luckily ended at around 6:00—finishing all the looks that were planned. The Lu sisters (Charlene, Dane and Justine) including Janica and I , were all present. Our photographer was Ed Altares.

The studio was very nice. I felt really comfortable working with the LuLu Team. The only pressure that was pressed on us was time! We hustled like we never hustled before! I regret not having taken more BTS shots since I forgot to bring my extra pairs of hands.IMG_2407-horzThere were plenty of LuLu Makeup palettes for everyone to use! IMG_2424-horzHere is Achi Char (Charlene Lu) working on the hair of Dane.IMG_2420-horzMy second and third look. You can veryu much tell what the second look is all about! I love you KARMINMUSIC! I wasn’t able to take a shot of the first look, but the shots from Kuya Ed will definitely compensate for that!IMG_2430-horzHere’s another long long sister of mine! The beautiful Janica Buhain! Luckily squeezed in these shots in between changing of hair and makeup.IMG_2433-horzAchi Char with myself in my “just-had-squid-for-lunch-look” Hahaha! I told you we can totally pass for sisters! Can you believe she’s married? She looks sooooooo young! IMG_2438-horzWhen the pressure was dying… DSC02359Seriously one of the most beautiful faces I’ve worked on. This is Dane Lu. She’s only 16! Such potential to be a model. She has the most beautiful skin ever. I hardly did any concealing. I heard Janica rave about Justine’s complexion as well! The Lu sisters definitely have great genes! 265786_2139758610318_1136734520_32561827_7265336_o-horz277761_224416367589883_151123184919202_745551_6942741_o-horzThank to Achi Char for all these BTS shots of me and Dane!271473_2139761370387_1136734520_32561834_1534787_o-horzJanica and myself working on Dane and Justine.279915_2139765530491_1136734520_32561850_973709_o-horzThe living doll.280290_2139765810498_1136734520_32561851_673355_o-horzOur working area was all messed up!266774_2139773170682_1136734520_32561877_3141912_o-vertThe LuLu Makeup Team with our photographer Kuya Ed.DSC02371-vertThe beautiful Lu sisters.266421_2139770490615_1136734520_32561869_6599686_oHaving some pizza after all the hair and makeup madness.
