I model for friends once in a while. My make-up artist, E.J. Belen-Litiatco, was doing her new portfolio and the shoot fell on a date when I myself happened to be in Manila. I am seldom in Manila but on the scheduled day of the shoot, I was.

I love E.J. We first met in 2006. She did the make-up for my wedding and the make-up for a number of my friends’ weddings thereafter.

We did a portfolio shoot in 2008. This shoot was done in November 2013. It took a while for me to post about this and I even hesitated. In the end, I decided to blog about it so I can promote her talent as a make-up artist as well as the photographer’s, Mario Wong.

This is the photo I like best.

And all the rest are deemed NSFW. 😛

Here is the video of the shoot.

This is what my hair looked like after a few hours. My hair never seems to be able to keep its curls. We’ve been trying for years. This photo was taken off Instagram. 😉
