It was September 15 last year when we had our shoot and it was really fun and entertaining. A break from all the stress at work and something fresh; an activity I truly miss. Not that I'm new in shoots since I do attend photoshoots for cosplay, among others. Also, I ain't that new in getting featured since a number of my cosplays or characters have already appeared in other published materials (which reminds me, I gotta write about it too hehe). But getting featured in these magazines with a nice article is something I'd treasure for life.
I also can't believe I'm only posting this just now. LOL. Actually, I think I have a lot of other posts I need to queue. I haven't written about the other great finds lah~ Dang! I lack days to write! I normally just write on weekends and schedule them for posting (due to my busy work life lah~ sorry!) and spread them out. I guess that made it slip my mind on writing about this experience.
Nevertheless, here it is ... check out our fun moments in the shoot!!! Behind the scenes ... here we go!!!

The opportunity was given to some of the employees of our company who had valuable contributions in our work and overall industry and at the same time, lives life to the fullest with extreme hobbies, different from what a regular BPO employee would do. I ain't talking something "weird" you know hehe.

- Casual Attire (non-office look)
- Hobby Look (how we look when we do our hobby)
I brought my regular "cosplay make up kit" just in case. I didn't know we'll have a make-up artist in the studio. I am not sure how my make up would turn out though so I was a little hesitant. There are very rare occasions I really have people do my make up and most of the time, I know I look different in a way hehe. I guess my face doesn't really like make up haha.

I was thinking how I'd look after all the make up haha. I was scared to look too-made-up after. Angelee explained that it has to be a little thicker because it's for a shoot and with all the lights in the studio, it might easily melt my make up so nothing to worry if there was a little more. LOL. I felt so noob!
Thankfully, Angelee was so kind and kept on chatting with me as well - she said she was also a bit nervous haha. So that we can both alleviate the tension, we chatted all the time. After all, I had to change make up 3x because of the three different looks. Not only that, she had to do that to all of us. That's lots of work for her too. Just doing my makeup for myself is already tiring. What more with all of us haha!
Anyway, the organizers of the shoot decided to keep the make up for 2x only - 1 for the casual and corporate look; and 1 for the hobby look. Whooossh! That's a relief for Angelee and us too haha.
Here's how my make up turned out:

I can't recall what types of make up she used anymore so I'm so sorry I'd be unable to share the brands used nor the shade and what-nots. I didn't realize they were important back then. Eeeek! Kill me now ...LOL. All I know is, we did ...
- put a concealer + BB cream + foundation
- shape my eyebrows and put light eyebrow pencil color
- put light and thin line black eyeliner (away from my regular thick ones hehe)
- light eyeshadow and white eyeliner for my water line
- lightest pink blush for my cheeks
- light shade lipstick
- curled my hair (just the edges)
The goal was to make me still look young & vibrant as the young professional in me. Despite being corporate and holding a role that is mature in its sense, I had to keep looking like myself so this was done. I guess they were successful in doing that! (^_^)

|Dan before and after!|
I am pretty amazed with Angelee's make up skills anyway in making all of us pretty! LOL. Take a look at one of my colleagues' make up - for Dan. His skin eventually looked smoother and fairer with just a few strokes! Really amazing! Haha~!

Succeeding issues of both magazines featured the rest of us in the roster - I think it went to 4 series magazines. It was such an honor and great experience to share our passion and be a person of influence to others.
Hope you had fun as much as I did! (^_^) Thanks for reading my behind the scenes post! If you read the actual articles, I'd love to hear your insights!
