Makeup Transformation: Get Your Celebrity Look from Acie Fores
Applying makeup is one of my weaknesses. I didn’t experience sneaking up on my mom when she was putting on makeup nor did I ever see her wear any. She is, up to this date, much like me — a makeup noob.
Lately, I’ve been attending lots of events, though, and I realized how pale I look in the pictures. How I wish I could look like a celebrity and have a professional makeup artist work on me. Well, my wish was granted by Acie Fores!

As far as training is concerned, her mentors are professional makeup artists like Erika Saenz, Georginna Desuasido, Yuki Geraldo, Mio Robo and Mikey Raymundo. She also went to the San Francisco Institute of Esthetics and Cosmetology for an advanced airbrush course, and took hair styling with Tony Dusich, and a high definition class with Jenn Delica.

My Makeup Transformation by Acie Fores
This is where it gets exciting! I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. But first, the “before” look:
My face is darker than my body, blame it on mountain climbing. LOL
The “Day Look” Transformation
Acie said it’s important to groom the brows.
Sidenote: Acie and I met with Martine de Luna at Honeycomb Manila Coworking, a coworking space located within the EDSA Beverage Design Studio and I must say that aside from good lighting for taking photos, the coffee smelled so delish, it made me want to drink some! I couldn’t, though. Hehe.
