I woke up to a somewhat gloomy weather of Hong Kong. A typhoon was looming (one that just recently visited my very own country) and chose to go to the direction of where we were. But that didn't stop stop us. Thank God that I was able to curl my hair the previous evening since my plush bed at Lanson Place had me oversleeping. Apologies to those who had to wait for me to get dressed.
We headed to the Hollywood Road up town (or is it downtown?) where the models and their Independent Business Consultants will be under going their training and photo shoot. I was so excited for them! Hollywood road is like an interior design mecca in Hong Kong with a few cafes and boutique hotel. That day The Space was converted into a training center for the second day of Mary Kay One Woman Can Beauty Contest.
Take a look at the behind the scenes and learn a thing or two about modelling from their mentors....
My role as a blogger for that day was to shadow one of the Philippine's finalist, Fatima Saquilabon (19) and Marilds Aperocho (20). The models where required to wear black shirts and a little bit of foundation while their IBC's wore white. Look how fresh our two girls were that morning. Despite the few hours of sleep, they were all eager to start the day.
To keep true with the concept that a Mary Kay woman can bring out the beauty in you, the IBC's will be doing their makeup instead of a professional makeup artist. I could already feel excitement as well as nervousness in some of the IBC's as it's their first time to do a full photoshoot kind of a makeover. All I can do was wish Marilds and Fatima good luck.
But Marilds is not new to makeup artistry. Ever since she was young, well she's just 20 now, she has always bee fascinated with makeup and have done faces for a few friends and of her mom's. She finds fulfillment in doing makeovers. That's the reason why she joined Mary Kay, not only were the products they offer were superior but because they provided consistent training to their IBC's.
- Starving your self is a no-no. A model must be able to keep up with the rigorous demands of photography.
- Avoid processed foods like junk foods and carbohydrates.
- Pack nutritious snacks like carrots and almond nuts in your bag when getting hungry at a middle of a shoot
- Drink lots of water.
- Avoid late nights and get a full 8 hour sleep.
