Wedding Planning Adventure: Engagement Shoot (HMUA by Make-up by XY)

It's been awhile since my last post, as always my work gets in the way of my blogging life hahaha.
Anyways, am back!

I was able to go to Manila for only a week and one task on my to do list was our Engagement Shoot, e-nup, pre-nup hahahaha it's been called to many names.

As you may know I booked my HMUA Ms. Xyrene of Make-up by XY without a meeting or a trial make-up. It was thru FB that we chatted about the details, we bonded and even before I meet her, I already love her hahahaah.

So meeting her for the first time was exciting. I was wondering if the same chemistry that we had in FB would translate in person. (Yes! it's like meeting your online friend EB style).

On the 19th of March... We finally met :-)

And of course we clicked, bonded, laughed which is a big relief. And the bonus points are she also bonded with our Photographer Rvee Santiago, Videographer Onair Aerial and my ever lovable Tita Mileth.

Knowing that my team likes each other, is such a big deal for me am into this TEAMWORK maybe it's my ex-manager persona trying to come out hahahahha.

Enough of this gleaming comments, I know you guys want to know how it went.

Xyrene and Adrian came on time, their call time was 9:00 am. She even sent an SMS that they are on their way.

She did not take any before and after pics, so I have to find a pic of mine that could do


I had 3 looks but was only able to take a picture look 1 and 3

Look 1

Look 3
And the pictures came out amazing hehehehehhe (Love your own!)

I know you B2B would like to know how I would rate her and of course any pros and cons, to here it goes.

Opps! Got to explain my rating scale, since I am such a emotional person and my EQ level if as high as Mt. Everest I decided to rate according to how I love them.

My ratings are based on my personal experience and expectation during our engagement shoot. So please take it with a pinch of salt :-)

Rating: (1 Heart lowest - 5 Hearts Highest)


Pro's:
  • Xyrene and Adrian arrived on time
  • She could multi task.. Chikahan is a must for me but this lady could work and talk at the same time. 
  • She has a good sense of humor which made me feel at ease, am not used to putting on make-up since I changed career.
  • When she was doing my make-up I noticed that she has this habit of cleaning her tools during and after using it, again being hygienic is a major plus!!!  
  • Super attentive, during the photo shoot she follows us around to make sure that my makeup is ok, although I did not find the need for her to do this since the air brush make up was holding well and take it from me I perspire like a waterfall. 
  • I don't know how the other HMUA works but she stayed all through out the shoot which made me feel special..that am not just a client. She made sure that I was ok.
Con's:

Haiz! None I could think of.. Believe me am trying to crack my brain just to come out with one. Sorry.
