#events #backstagepass

First of all, I would like to congratulate Shu Uemura. Happy 30th Anniversary! That's 3 decades of beauty. I just got home from the event, and I am still on a high. I was amongst my makeup artist and press friends, and the highlight of the evening -meeting Shu's international creative director, Kakuyasu Uchiide. I would like to share with you lots of photos from the event and backstage photos!

Me with Shu Uemura's International Creative Director, Kakuyasu Uchiide
It was such an honor to have met Mr. Uchiide. Such a wonderful man (and did I mention cute? *giggle giggle*), I loved watching him work during the live demo. He works with such grace and passion. I am so honored to have been invited to such an important occasion. It was sort of like a mini-reunion with my makeup artist "batch mates".

Did some catching up pre-event with Claire Diokno, Agoo Bengzon, John Pagaduan, and Cathy Cantada-Dizon
The event was gorgeously decorated according to Shu Uemura's classic red and black theme.

Tim Yap and Kakuyasu Uchiide take the stage.
Jasmine Meierhofer, Patrick Alcober and Rorie Carlos-Manzano
I just have to commend on Rorie's entire look this evening. Tonight's dress code was 60's and she just pulled off the vintage look so well from the dress, the accessories, hair and makeup!

The Shu Uemura creative team (along with Kiehl's Hair Stylists) showed off their mad skeelz, and expressed their creativity through avant garde makeup looks. Here are some exclusive backstage photos for your enjoyment!

Ahh-mazing. It was such a fantastic event! I still can't get over the fact that I met Kakuyasu Uchiide. I can't say his name enough. Kakuyasu Uchiide. I'm tickled pink! Tee Hee.

Please watch out for my Shu Uemura 30th Year Video Special to be posted soon!
