Do You Dare? Part 2.

If you have already read my first Do You Dare? blog post, you should already know what this post is about. If you haven't read the post, then here is a recap:

Basically, back in June, I received an email from Maybelline New York to be one of their Dare girls. So, at the end of that month, sleepless-and-very-excited-me went to UP Diliman with the also-sleepless-but-not-as-excited-babydaddy, who promised to take my BTS shots during the shoot.

After getting my makeup done for my first look, though, the babydaddy fell asleep on one of the tables and I didn't have the heart to wake him to take my BTS photos. Therefore, I had none. Fortunately, he woke up before my shots for the second look were taken, though, so here are some BTS photos of that:

Changing into boots for my second look!

To be perfectly honest, I had no idea what to wear for this look. I'm not really the tribal print type of girl, so this is the only tribal piece of clothing that I actually have in my closet (thank God I had one!).

On that same note, I didn't want to try and be something I was not, so I tried to put some sort of rocker-ish edgy spin to it. What do you think? :s

Also, I don't mean to sound diva-ish here, but I hated what they did to my hair coz I hate my ears and tying it back definitely drew much more attention to it. Ergh.

Fortunately, I loved my photographer (Lee Caces) sooo much, I forgot all about my petty bad vibes pretty quickly. I think I fell in love with him coz he was wearing a Star Wars shirt. Yes, I definitely fell in love with him coz he was wearing a Star Wars shirt. :p

Plus, he and Gela Francisco - Gela's the one who chose me for the shoot! :) - were very accommodating, nice, funny and easy to get along with. It was like shooting with friends. Loved them to bits!

Also, this is no exaggeration, but Lee got things done sooo quickly. I think we finished each layout in just 10 minutes. Can we shoot again soon, please? :D

When it was time to shoot for the accessories, Lee said, "Just think of this as an outfit shot!" Haha. Easy peasy!

The babydaddy was also able to take some shots of them shooting fashion blogger Aileen Belmonte who was part of the Bohemian part of the shoot. I'm actually reeeeeally glad that I saw her after I took my Bohemian shots. Otherwise, I would never have gotten out of the bathroom. I felt so inferior after seeing her. Lol. Seriously.

Check out her complete look here.

For my second look on the Maybelline page, I was extremely surprised to see that I was on the front page thingamajiggy during the first week of it being up! :D Check it out:

(Yes, I screen-shotted it. Haha.)

Thanks again to Gela and Lee for being so awesome! I really hope I get to work with you guys again soon! And of course thank you to Maybelline for this awesome opportunity.
