Official Opening of Dolled Up Make-up Studio

September 10, 2011 was a big day for Pearl of DollFace Cosmetics because she's finally opening her own make-up studio in Cebu. A variety of people were invited for a cocktail party and I was super excited.

I was actually debating on what to wear. I have been out of town a lot and my wardrobe is in dire need of an update; however, I haven't been very social these days, so I simply considered choosing a random dress. But then, I thought: This is Pearl's opening night. It would be great to celebrate it with a BAM.

And so, my mom and I went out to pick an outfit. It was such a grueling task, but luckily she picked up this beautiful dress that went perfectly with my studded purple pumps. I was channeling a monochromatic look with accents of gold.

For the make-up, I decided to go nude and fresh with peach and orange as my accents to contrast the cool tones of my outfit. The event starts at 4:00 PM so I figured heavy make-up just wouldn't do.

On the day of the event the rain decided to pour down like crazy. Can you imagine how it was traveling to the location? Bad traffic, super bad weather, and time ticking like it's being chased. I believe you've added two and two together: We were not late, everyone else were simply early. HA!

The first thing we did when we got there was of course, say our congratulations to Pearl...and then went straight to the buffet table. How Savage. The Carbonara was absolutely delicious! The Four Seasons juice with actual fruits inside was delightful. I'm sure you will believe me after seeing this photo:

Yes, she is enjoying it.

We also took a few pics with the beautiful Cebuana bloggers that were also there!

With Pearl, Gianna, Khymm, Raine, and Noe!
Here are more random pictures we took during the event.

Noe and I thought of what look to wear that day. Since I came up with the soft look, in contrast, she killed the fierce Kim Kardashian look. She was smoking! we both used DollFace Cosmetics' Barenaked Palette for our eyes.
