Last month Gab and I shot two layouts for Girls Teen Wear by SM for their new line of Couple Tees, just in time for the love month. We modeled with another couple who are (fashion) bloggers, Seph & Trice. It was a really fun shoot, and I liked how we were able to just be ourselves in the photos. I think the production was done well, from the photographer (BJ Pascual), and the makeup artist (Mayesa delos Santos).
This is the first professional shoot Gab and I are doing as a couple. I was a little nervous because I’m not naturally a cheesy type of person… And you know, love month + couple tees = cheese. But Gab actually made everything so much more easy going for me, especially because he started to just act natural around me and then our dynamic as a couple just naturally showed and was captured on camera.
Anyway, here’s a few BTS photos:
One of my favorite part of any shoots, getting my makeup done — so I can watch how the makeup artist does it and possibly pick up a tip here and there!
My makeup midway, and I honestly wouldn’t have minded if we stopped at this. I was really liking how Mayesa was going my makeup. Confession time: I usually don’t like how some makeup artists do makeup… Especially the gays (no offense to them!), because I noticed that 80% of the time if my makeup is done by a gay guy, it’s so thick that I end up looking like a drag version of myself. :\
The final output and my makeup is so on point. I was floored. I loved how Mayesa still managed to make me look like me, despite the necessary thick makeup for photoshoots. Her makeup aesthetic is my inspiration for when I become a makeup artist myself.
Gab and his pompadour hair. Haha
Fold C shooting our video that will be played in SM stores! I’ll post the video below and you guys should watch it because it’s so darn cute! I loved the edit, most especially :)
