Max Factor Mission Makeover

The make up tutorial where I was featured in is finally here! I must admit, I have this fear of seeing myself on (video) camera and hearing myself talk. I can't stand seeing or listening to myself and notice all those mistakes I committed in front of the camera--be it my posture, my facial expressions, the way I speak, and even the tiniest of detail such as when I should've smiled and should it have been with my teeth showing or not. This fear might have come from the recurring thought that after it has been uploaded, a video is final--you can't change it anymore. Everybody now knows that you have this weird mannerism or that you look horrible in a certain angle. Although I didn't talk for the whole duration of the video (except for that one liner in the last part), you can't imagine how nervous I get while watching this. But I guess everyone has his/her share of insecurities. This video was the perfect first step for me to face this fear and be less self-conscious in front of the camera.

Okay, I didn't realize I was getting off track LOL. So I won this contest by Max Factor and BDJ Box. As a prize, I was given the opportunity to be made up by the Max Factor National Make-Up Artist Bobby Carlos (the person behind the makeup of the SM Accessories campaigns: Anne Curtis, Georgina Wilson, Richard Gutierrez, and Xian Lim...ring a bell?) and be featured in a makeup tutorial video.

Aside from that, BDJ Box had their first Beauty Social at the SM Mall of Asia Atrium and I was asked to attend a certain segment for the awarding.

Thank you so much to the people behind BDJ Box and Max Factor! Candice and Monica, thanks for being extra nice and accommodating! Bobby, thanks for your super awesome makeup! Hello also to some new friends, Kacey and Apple!

  1. I know where you're coming from, Alyssa, but you did great in that video, no weird mannerisms, no bad angles, you were sweet and charming. That's my take on it anyway. :)
