Supplier’s Rating: Val Villarin

Dear Online Diary,

I learned about Mama Val through W@Wies who raved (and still raving) about his works and techniques. Looking at his portfolio, I like that each of his brides has a clean, natural airbrush finish. I thought I wouldn’t be able to get his services until I won one of the packages he donated to W@W via W@W Auction last year.

Last June, we agreed to hold the trial airbrush makeup in line with our engagement session to put the makeup to the test. It was the first time I met him in person. He (and his shi tzu, MAC) warmly welcomed us. While working, Mama Val went on to explain what each make up do to my face and appearance, which shade of lipstick will work best for me and so on. Here’s our photo right after the trial makeup session:

On our wedding, he and his team were the first to arrive at the hotel. They did not waste time in setting up the makeup area. I showed the inspirations for me and my female entourage and we were glad that they were able to make each of my girls beautiful. Feel na feel talaga nila yung makeup and hairstyle nila. :))

Mama Val took great care of me and my bridal look. The application session was a bit of a challenge for me and Mama Val only because of, yes po, eyeliner. I am not a big fan of eyeliner because my eyes are sensitive but as they say, we have to do it in the name of beauty. :))

Before our grand entrance as husband and wife at the reception, our coordinators and Ms. Anj asked us to take a quick snack. That’s a great idea since hubby and I were starving. :)) After enjoying a plate of Fettuccini Italiana, chicken empanaditas and a cold glass of Hawaiian punch, I didn’t have to apply anything except the lip gloss that he gave me at the hotel (thanks, mama Val).
