Over the long weekend, I had the privilege of doing Yvonne Amores’ makeup for Miss Philppines-Australia 2013. This beauty pageant is held at Sydney once a year along side with the Filipino Kultura Fiesta. All up, there were 15 beautiful candidates. Although Yvonne did not take home the crown, she was named Miss Photegenic. Congratulations Yvonne! You did so well! And to Melanie Balagtas congratulations for taking home the title of Miss Philipinnes Austalia 2013 and Charity Queen. For more details about Miss Philippines- Australia 2013 click here.
I had so much fun backstage, preparing Yvonne and seeing other beauties being transform by their nominated makeup artist and hairstylist. On top of that I also got to meet some amazing people in the beauty pageant industry such as Peter Sereno, the Creator and Owner of Dear Pageant Girl and Alexis Tan, Creative Director for Miss Earth Australia 2013.
For Yvonne’s makeup look since she has an amazing skin and beautiful eyes specially when she smiles. I decided to focus on her eyes and show off her amazing cheek bones by contouring. I created a classic smokey eyes using neutral colours and top it off with voluminous whisphy false eyelashes. For the lips I wanted a fresh pink candy lips with a hint of fuchsia to suit her blue outfit. Here are some of the images I took before the show time. Hope you like them.
