PBE is doing far more than just teach us basic makeup. She teaches us how to be in the heart of it all. And yesterday was proof. Going behind the scenes to see how everyone prepares for a show as big as Metrowear was more than what I bargained for.
I only went to Metrowear a few years back to support my designer cousin, Louis Claparols. This time, for Metrowear Rocks the Runway, I went to support him and get to observe the beautification process of everyone that’s going to be on the runway.
So anyway, we were asked to go to EDSA Shangri-La Hotel at 3pm. PBE showed us around, introduced us to the Editor-In-Chief of Metro Magazine, Michealle Torres, and International Ford’s Supermodel of the World 2011, Danica Magpantay. (I feel like making a separate entry just for her)
PBE introduced us to the Hair & Makeup Team. I know I should have sat down with the hair team and asked a few questions about hair too, but when the makeup team were setting up, you could bet I’m drawn like a metal to a magnet!
MAC artists were there, wearing black and looking their fab selves, just like how I pictured MAC girls would look like. I remember SoCal’s MAC girls looking all made up and pretty! Anyway, PBE introduced us to Don de Jesus and Pong Niu.
If I made kwento every little detail and how great it felt to be there, this entry would be so looong! So here are some photos from my phone. Yes, I do not have a camera to capture precious moments like this!
The only reason why I go to Metrowear, Louis Claparols having his hair done
By 8PM, it was time for me to fix up for the event. Alone. So when the event hasn’t started yet, I went back to the Hair & Makeup room and found Zanjoe Marudo sitting on Jarwin’s chair! No, I did not take a photo of him, I was waay to stunned, so I only got to say hi.
Some other celebrities there I saw (and recognized, sorry I don’t watch TV a lot) was Joey Mead, Maja Salvador and Matteo G.
Music by Wolfgang. And that’s my grade-school crush Basti Artadi on stage singing!
I took a few more photos then off I went. My feet were just too tired. I just realized I stood with the makeup crew in action for so long by the time I got to my heels it hurt.
I walked back to the makeup room with Jarwin and we walked and left Shang together. I swear he has got to be the friendliest person in that room! So if you are planning to buy MAC cosmetics, go see him in Trinoma. (You can also look for Odessa in Rockwell, she’s really nice too!)
So extra thanks to PBE: Metro Magazine’s Beauty Editor Charmagne Garcia-Laconico for bringing us in and giving us this kind of exposure. Maybe I should call her CGL on my next blog entries. Or not. I kinda like PBE for her anyway. So as you will not wonder why I call her PBE (Pretty Beauty Editor), I grabbed this photo from Louis C’s facebook:
