Midnight Mineral Madness

According to my Youtube make-up coach, this technique is supposed to achieveĀ the ‘Valentine look’ (whatever it is that you’re supposed to look like during Valentine’s — i dont know, coz in my book thats a progression from flirty to horny to drunk to wasted). But anyways, I think me likes the looks of it. šŸ˜€

All products used are from Everyday Minerals unless specified otherwise.

The Valentine Look:

So, I decided I’ve had enough sadness for now, and its time to try to be a bit merry for a change.


So, amidĀ all the hulabaloo,Ā I forgot to mention thatĀ IĀ now have, in my possesion, my very own homemade ringlight!

As I was already planning to get one for myself, I called my good photography buddy Ivy with queries regarding specs and to ask where I can source the materials. As luck would have it, it turned out thatĀ spatial constraintsĀ has had her looking for a new home for herĀ ringlight, or else she might have to take it apart. We arrived at a very hmm.. reasonable agreement, and here we are!

My ringlight sitting comfortably between my dining table and shoe rack.

Check out the stand the rightlight is mounted on: its actually a clothes hanger, which IĀ picked up from Home Center. And it cost meĀ more than the lights itself! Upon reco of another photog buddy Arny, I mounted my lights on something with wheels, for better manueverability.

I’ve tied the rightlight to the mount withĀ a rolled up plastic bag.Ā Im aĀ real girl scout, ain’t I? šŸ˜€

Also, see these convenient storage!

So… time to see the results!

This has been a nice first round with my ringlight, yeah?Ā Im preparing to shoot my officemate Heba next week, forĀ which Im cooking up some simple concepts. Im also planning to shoot something tomorrow, if the hangover doesn’t kill me as much as it always does.


So, I’m almost done with my digital imaging class. Im really glad to have taken this class. Now, my teacher is offering an intensive one-day advanced class, but now for a fee. Im still thinking if Im gonna take it. Or maybe, since Im a bit familiar on how the program works already, I’ll just do my own exploring. I dunno yet.

My teacher also announced during today’s class the theme for our final project: FILIPINIANA. This isĀ gonna be a contest of sorts for all the students enrolled in this batch. Im already developing some concepts, and I ‘ll try my best to snag a price if I can. Wish me luck! šŸ˜€

Anyways, here’s my 2nd and 3rd assignments (which are actually the 3rd and 4th for the class,Ā since i failed to submit the first one hehe).


SAD NEWS UPDATE: My cousin’s funeral is on Monday. My parents are up there to lend a shoulder to the rest of the family who are just so devastated, especially my uncle. I called them earlier today and they told me my mom’s gonna stay there awhile, but my dad will be heading home after the burialĀ coz of work. I pray to God that everyone gets peace, coz, whatever else can you ask for in times like these?
