Jay Manuel #DiscoverYou Nyc

 

 

If you’re a fan of America’s Next Top Model you’ll recognize Jay Manuel as the show’s former creative director and judge of Canada’s Next Top Model. He’s also a celebrity makeup artist, fashion and lifestyle beauty expert. He believes that “beauty is deeply personal, purely individual and surprisingly public.”

Jay Manuel’s #Discoveryounyc event marked the launch of the new Filter Finish Collection from his makeup line Jay Manuel Beauty, a premiere cosmetic line curated by cutting-edge glamour technologies. It was also a celebration for women to discover their true self-image. Three signature styles from his make up line are Iconic, Classic and Avant-Garde, all of them unique and glamorous looks to make you shine!

The event started off with a presentation and Q&A session with Jay Manuel as the moderator and a panel of influential people in the fashion, technological and beauty industries such as Asmau Ahmed the CEO of the app Plum Perfect, Elisabeth Halfapp the founder of the Mind Body Program called Exhale, Victoria’s Secret photographer Russell James, entrepreneur Jodie Patterson and On-Air Beauty & Lifestyle expert Milly Almodovar. They shared their insight on beauty, fashion tips and how to express your personal style with confidence.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr Jay Manuel himself. He is so warm, gracious and cheerful in person! I asked him for tips on how to look great in front of the camera. His answer was “ Be genuine with your emotions. If you want to smile, think of something happy. The most important aspect of your expression is in your eyes.” So there you go ladies! A picture perfect tip from the expert of America’s Next Top Model, himself.

For the rest of the day we were pampered with amazing beauty, hair, nail and makeup services. Jay Manuel Beauty experts provided makeovers and beauty consultations. We also got to sample some of the exquisite products from his make up line. A unique aspect of Jay Manuel Beauty is that it uses crushed diamonds, pearls and precious stones to nourish and make the skin glow! I also love how the packaging is so sleek and compact so it won’t take up too much space in your make up bag. There’s a diverse, dynamic range of colors and shades for your eyes, lips and face to suit your skin colour.

Pai-Shau, a hair-care line provided their incredible hair styling services. Pai-Shau’s products are infused with Exotic Tea Complex and advanced binary technology to rejuvenate and protect the hair. I received a sample bottle of the Biphasic Infusion, a hair serum that instantly moisturized and detangled my frizzy hair. I really loved how Stephanie Parziale, the creative director of the brand, glamorized and added dramatic, voluminous waves to my hair!

Visual Impact: Scene Magazine

 

 

It was an honor to be featured in Scene Magazine’s Visual Impact Issue! Scene Magazine is an artsy magazine distributed throughout South East Asia, picking only the best submissions in the region for its publications.

The photo shoot was conceptualized by talented art directors and photographers Ade Lau and Venus Khor, Singaporean photographers based in Australia. It paints a surreal world of reminiscent of Tim Burton’s style. Our stylist Sarah Murray did a great job of picking  quirky outfits with vibrant colors and patterns. It is a little hard to recognize me and my model partner Yquey with the dramatic hair and make up done by our make up artist Carmen Chan but she did an incredible job!

 The shoot was set in an unconventional location – a supermarket for foreign construction workers. Using real fish as props was an ingenious idea! I love how pictures imply that I was the dominant one and the man is doing the cooking! The bright contrast of stripes and polka dots with the gothic dark eye makeup made us look like characters from the Beetlejuice movie, another one of Tim Burton’s classics.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our final shot is with the crowd of Bangladeshi workers in the basketball court, with me and my model partner seated in the middle. It’s one of my favorite shots as it not only looks dynamic, but it also gave the construction workers a chance to shine!

It was one of the most amazing shoots I have ever done and it was a blessing to work with such a talented and professional team!

If you ever plan to dress up as a couple for next Halloween or costume party and hope to make a unique fashion statement, try mixing together bold colors with contrasting patterns and dark makeup. Don’t forget to add a quirky accessory or two!

Radmila Lolly Hope Music Video Shoot

Radmila Lolly is an exceptional opera singer who is my regular client and a great friend of mine. She is a classically trained opera singer  and has been singing since the age of 6.  She has decided to make her approach to her music career more contemporary by infusing her operatic singing style into pop and house music.

These are some of her shots from her music video shoot for her 2nd single “Hope,” a romantic ballad composed by Julian de la Chica. The style of the video is set in the 1940s and exudes Old Hollywood Glamour.

The stylist Laurean Ossorio did an incredible job putting together the outfits! The exquisite, intricately beaded gowns are designed by Dany Tabet and the elegant jewelry from Misahara . Luxurious furs added another air of  opulence from that golden era.

Elegant pinned-up waves, smoky eyes and red lips complemented the vintage fashion direction we were going for.

It was great working with such sweet and talented people. Our art director and videographer Rhonny Tufino did a phenomenal job directing the shoot and editing the video. With Radmila’s powerful voice, the poignant musical score and dramatic visuals, the music video is a rare gem that sets her apart from other artist.

Beauty, Baubles, Bevvies and Boxes Event

I love that the fashion and beauty industry is becoming more earth conscious. The  Beauty, Baubles, Bevvies, and Boxes event was a great showcase of brands that featured products that were Eco-friendly  and  helped give back to the community.

 

Deepa Gurnani is an artisan jewelry brand that sells handcrafted accessories made in India. The designers behind the brand are husband and wife Deepa and Jay Lakhani. Deepa has beaded couture pieces for Alexander McQueen, Fendi and Emanuel Ungaro  while Jay Lakhani trained under head designers for Tiffany and Bvlgari. It’s no wonder why their jewelry and hair accessories are so exquisite and fashionable.

 

13256355_10208209568529679_5050901785289448417_n

 

The pieces that were being displayed at the event were embellished with crystals, beads, feathers and semi precious stones. Some of the headbands, bracelets and necklaces have intricate designs embroidered onto leather pieces with beads. The collection has an earthy, bohemian vibe with an air of luxury. I loved the carnelian necklace and the black feather headband.  Another thing that I admire about Deepa Gurnani is that they are involved with charitable causes and employ the unskilled workforce to teach them skills to support their families.

Hynt Beauty is a organic and cruelty free beauty brand that did makeup touch ups at the event. What makes them different is that their products are not only vegan, they are also made from natural ingredients and botanical extracts. They do not have any nano particles and artificial colorants and preservatives. And of course, they are also Eco-friendly and do not test on animals. The makeup line  looks luxurious and elegant at the same time. I had a mini makeover with the products and I absolutely was impressed with the make up base, powder foundation  and concealer. A little goes a long way and using just a small amount made my imperfections and eye bags disappear, giving it a natural glow.

The drinks were from Invo Coconut Water that uses fresh coconuts from Thailand. The juice is
cold crafted, meaning it is not pasteurised with heat! By doing so, the essential nutrients are retained, making the juice fresher and healthier. Invo also had different flavours with Sencha green tea and Tropical that’s blended with mango and pineapple juices. I’ve tried the coconut water and sure enough it was refreshing and not too sweet, just like sticking a straw and drinking from a freshly cracked coconut! Invo Coconut Water also uses sustainable farming methods.

Boombox Gifts showcased their products and services that makes gifting personal and fun. How it works is that you pick a box from a selection of designs and then Boombox helps you fill it with notes and pictures from your group of friends. It’s perfect for all occasions such birthdays, anniversaries and bridal showers!

As someone who loves the earth and giving back, I loved being introduced to and learning more about these inspirational brands at this event.

IMAN Cosmetics in collaboration with GlambitionWomenThinkBIG™ and Dee & Co Group hosted a Glambition-Women Think B.I.G. Alter-Ego Round Table & Influencer event. GlambitionWomenThinkBIG™ is an organisation that aims to empower, inspire and educate aspiring business women through training and mentorships from successful business owners.

 It was a great opportunity to learn more about having a successful business and empowering the many roles we have at work and in real life. The panel speakers and CEOs such as Andrea March, the co-founder of Women’s Leadership Exchange and Michelle Centeno talked about the challenges of women in the workplace and how they overcame it. The next panel included  Antonio Lizano from Paychex, Katherine Lynch of KIVa.org , Beth Goldberg of SBA.gov and Jennifer Jaques of Jacques Beaulieu LLP who shared their knowledge and advice on how to grow a successful business. Desiree Reid of IMAN Cosmetics and Robert Wilis of Universal Beauty Products are among the panel that discussed what makes a woman beautiful and how beauty inspires the alter egos that women play.

13221002_10208214230046214_4032629494184158236_n

The event was not just all about business, it was also fun and glamorous as attendees had the chance get pampered with IMAN Cosmetics “AlterEgo” beauty makeovers and try their new lip colours. They also enjoyed having their hair styled by Universal Beauty Products with their moisturising Pure Naturals hair line and cute manicures by Jamberry. Guests also got to sample delicious desserts from SweetTess Creations and drinks from Limation Organic Drinks and Murphs Famous Bloody Mary. Paychex offered their new business products and SPT Wellness gave out their vitamin samples.

I loved the products from IMAN Cosmetics’ new #AlterEgo Collection  and Universal Beauty’s Pure Naturals products. I’ve tried the Coconut Milk & Honey Hair Mask and the Shea Oil Styling Serum  and it really made a difference in my dry frizzy hair, making it moisturized, smooth and sleek! The lipsticks and lip glosses are very pigmented and long wearing. The lip colour I tried as pictured belowis a unique deep brown shade called Hipster. I’ve never  worn brown lipstick before but it was surprisingly flattering on my skin tone. It was amazing to be featured on Iman Cosmetics official Instagram!

I personally enjoyed the empowering experience and got some useful tips in business and maintaining a healthy balance with life. Everyone was engaging, helpful and offered amazing advice and services. Thank you Dee Rivera for putting together such an inspiring event that celebrates women and beauty!
