Metro Magazine Shoot for September 2014 issue

I know this entry is really outdated and mind you, the upcoming posts will be the same as well since it’s been 4 months since I last worked on my blog. Forgive me. HAHA.. I just need to post all my Fashion Styling experiences so it will be all recorded if ever I make a throwback in a few years. LOL!

After we attended the Majorlica Majora Doll Glam Fashion Show at SM North The Block, we headed straight to Sir Rxandy’s studio in San Juan to witness a photoshoot for Metro magazine. It was my first time to attend a photoshoot for a magazine and had an experience how was working with models, HMUAs, stylists, and photographers. If I can remember, this photoshoot was for Metro magazine September 2014 issue.

When we arrived there, it was Bella Padilla who was being photo taken of. We didn’t see her layouts because it was the last layout that we got hold of. Infairness, she was pretty and classy! I love her beauty.


Then after Bella Padilla, it was Pong Niu’s turn to pose for the camera. According to Philippine Star (Lifestyle Section) dated July 30, 2014, “Pong Niu is a MAC Cosmetics sponsored artist who honed her talents in Cosmoprof, Singapore’s premier makeup academy. She interviewed with MAC in Singapore but was referred to the Manila office instead. After MAC Philippines brand manager Gay Lao saw her work during a fashion show held at the Manila penitentiary with Puey Quiñones, she was tapped to become one of only a handful of Filipino makeup artists to be backed by the US cosmetic giant in our country. Today, she is one of the most sought-after makeup artists in the Philippines who counts woman of style Ching Cruz as a loyal client. She has worked with countless famous Filipina beauties like Miss World 2013 Megan Young, Miss International 2013 Bea Rose Santiago, models-turned-TV personalities Valerie Weigmann, Kim Jones and Isabelle Daza, actresses Carmina Villaroel, Coleen Garcia and celebrity stylist Pam Quiñones, to name a few.”

I don’t know much about her. All I know is that, she’s one of the talented makeup artists here in the Philippines. I just got to know her on one of the posts of Laureen Uy’s blog.



The main reason why we were asked to go at the studio because of this – we need to assist the head stylist, Ryuji Shiomitsu, for the “5 ways on how to wear palazzo pants” section of the magazine. There were 5 layouts of outfit but only the top portion of the outfit has been changed. I wasn’t able to capture the 5 outfits because the photographer told us that we shouldn’t take photo of it and post it on all social media sites since this shoot was taken earlier than the scheduled issue. And so, I took all of these because (1) I really love how the model looks like (#girlcrushmodeON), and (2) that bag was MINE! LOL!!!






Forgive how we goof around. We were like this during our “free time”. Also, forgive how haggard we were. Every thing was a surprise this day since we were not informed on what we’ll do. Each one of us has its own first times and this was one of it.
