FINDING REAL BEAUTY :ENHANCING AND DEFINING FEATURES

 PRODUCTREAL BEAUTY    

by: jessie glova 

 

OUTER BEAUTY IS MORE IMPORTANT ? DO YOU THINK SO ?

THE BEAUTY QUEENS : HMHU : Jessie Glova

 As this cliche phrase  that states  .... 

"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder "

 Its is in fact so true .  Everyone sees beauty in many ways ... they have certain standards, levels,requirements and categories, some beauty experts  conform  to what is the true essence of being beautiful . Perfect , healthy ,clear and glowing skin, well defined features which include the bones structure  and facial / body symmetry and proportions and teeth formation so on and so forth. 

beauty |ˈbyoōtē|
noun ( pl. -ties)
1 a combination of qualities, such as shape, color, or form, that pleases the aesthetic senses, esp. the sight : I was struck by her beauty | an area of outstanding natural beauty.
• a combination of qualities that pleases the intellect or moral sense.
• [as adj. ] denoting something intended to make a woman more attractive : beauty products | beauty treatment.

PHRASES
beauty is in the eye of the beholder proverb beauty cannot be judged objectively, for what one person finds beautiful or admirable may not appeal to another.
beauty is only skin-deep proverb a pleasing appearance is not a guide to character.
ORIGIN Middle English : from Old French beaute, based on Latin bellus ‘beautiful, fine.’

 I  myself as a Make -up Artist and Stylist . "I always see beauty in our  imperfections".

 I never thought of this  entire concept about beauty  that it can be  very complex ,like  there are  implications of scientific approaches  and  requires some  technological advancements like   digital equipments  for facial enhancements and the likes . 

HMU: Jessie Glova

 

Coping with the advancements  of today's generation is no easy task for beauty experts there are continuous research on how regenerate our skin  or to defy age which is becoming a high demand in the market right now.... Imagine that it's such a great leap from a raw,organic approaches to highly synthetic organic  process ... just to be beautiful and now that i realized after I have studied  on  what is the true essence  REAL BEAUTY , its  not just all about what we see  on a  plain surface of  human anatomy but as well we  should consider the essentials like  color or  race , height , weight , type of skin , eye color and etc. that made as the total composition to what  is  individuality  and  distinctive quality of every human kind and it does come with a price it doesn't come cheap at all.

 

 

  I admit that I am as well guilty with regards to creating and implying on  what is beautiful or what is a true beauty imposing wrong notion about the matter.



Miss Earth 2008 Miss Karla Henry Hair and Make-up Jessie Glova
This is because I have been a pageant enthusiasts and we embrace  and follow certain category or requirements to create or  to achieve a  what we call BEAUTY QUEEN STANDARD. 
Miss Earth 2008 Ms . Karla Henry Hair and Make-up and Wardrobe: Jessie Glova
 It is like prerequisite to the world of show business  the STARS .....  MUST BE BEAUTIFUL !!!!!

Now ,not everyone is gifted with physical beauty and we need to accept that its the reality ,. as we are living in this world where physical beauty is a joy forever, so there's a social pressure on how to cope with these  so called standards.


I am going to change that perception there's what we call INDIVIDUALITY , UNIQUENESS  AND DISTINCTIVENESS .. these are the qualities that we can  consider in be  able for an individual to see ,appreciate and measure beauty with regards to physical aspect .


Each one of us should know our face and body shape , and it should start from ourselves ... we need to accept our differences or imperfections, the real cure to this is to draw on  our other features ... maybe eyes . hair and so on ..that will simply lift up or boost esteem THAT MAKES ONE PERSON FEEL  GOOD  about themselves through self acceptance , and everything will just simply follow. 


In this article ,.. what  I am showcasing here are the different pictures of real people real brides on their before and after look .  

 

 This article will serve as an eye opener to those people who doesn't seem to understand how important Make-up Artistry to our lives .

  This will serve as to make them learn that there's always beauty beyond that bare face of yours with cosmetics as the tool to create and recreate looks in different mood and character.


This will make you appreciate your beauty some more and will embrace whats the true beauty is. 


This will make you realize, that knowing your own feature you can already flaunt them instead of concealing or hiding them .

 


 

THERE ARE MIX REACTIONS ON HOW THESE PICTURES ARE PRESENTED ...

 

THESE ARE PICTURES OF DIFFERENT BEAUTIFUL LADIES WHERE THEY HAVE BEEN ENHANCED AND HAS DEFINED THEIR FACIAL FEATURES IN ORDER THAT  REAL BEAUTY WILL EXUDE AND TO COME OUT AND  FOR THEM TO  FEEL GOOD ABOUT THEMSELVES SPECIALLY ON THEIR  BIG DAY LIKE THEIR WEDDING--------


Its so true that ...   every girl's dream is to become a beautiful princess and ladies dream of becoming the most beautiful bride.

 

 


HOW ?

 

KNOW YOURSELF , understand your strength and make sure to  acknowledge your weakness  for you  to correct them . Do not just simply settle on what has been given naturally  given (by choice ) ... there you need to enhance  if there's really a need for you to . 

 

ENHANCEMENT IS THE CURE  ... maybe a non evasive operation, a color correction using whitening or tanning products  ...  or why not embrace what's this modern world can do in changing our lives so easy ... 

 

MAJOR CONSTRUCTION  or a simple nose job perhaps is a good move ... but provided you should  get a specialist or the best cosmetic surgeon in town. 


AND LASTLY , 

 

A GOOD MAKE-UP ARTIST is the answer for an instant enhancements, less expensive and the best option, and its cheaper you get to see the result in an instant a good artist its like Cinderella's fairy Godmother will turn a swan to a beautiful Princess.

Model Etchel Lazarte after Airbrush Make-Up and hair extension no Photoshop

 

 

A PICTURE OF A BEAUTIFUL AND  HAPPY BRIDE ... is the only PRODUCT done with passion and dedication BY a  GOOD MAKE-UP ARTIST .

 

Its the major marketing tool of an artist , where the artist showcases his work.


The AFTER PICTURES of the bride is not an INSULT nor to make them FEEL BAD  .....their bare face is the blank canvass for the  artist .... from the eye of an artist there is no such thing as ugly .... its  their natural beauty that needs to be defined and enhanced .

BEING WHITNEY HOUSTON

  BEING WHITNEY HOUSTON by : Jessie Glova




I just got back from work and got a text message that Whitney Houston was rushed to the hospital and possibly will not make it ..... I closed my eyes and paused for a prayer wishing she'll be fine... I have been devastated knowing that Whitney Houston cant belt and  can no longer sing her  own songs .... I have seen her ups and downs  and the latest Vid in youtube that really crashed my heart....... How much more this time knowing that she wont be with us anymore ?
 and just her songs will linger into our hearts reminding  us how beautiful life is.

I have been a fan of Whitney Houston since i was like on my early years humming and learning her rendition of Greatest love of all and when my mom bought a Music mate that comes with   a multiplex cassette tapes  where you  can sing along ....  next thing  i mastered after  GREATEST LOVE OF ALL ..It was that song  "ALL AT ONCE  " and have memorized  nearly all her songs by heart  ... I have been a solid fan  I believe she's  one of my early infuences and shaped me of who i am today ...
Jessoie Glova's  early impersonation of Whitney Houston
jessie Glova As Whitney Houston

The song that  made me realized that i can sing and i was noticed was"  Saving All my love for You ' i used to sing that in house parties/gatherings, during my high school days i started joining pageants .... one sunday in Mandaue Cebu i went for a screening For a local gay pageant ,.. when everyone s waiting for the result as i was wearing a neon orange two piece swimsuit ... with my tanned and  funny  curly wig ,.. somebody stepped in and asked who among you all can  perform ???? so i did Volunteer ...raised my hand and i said yes and good thing  I brought my minus one with me, so i did perform..... I sang "ALL AT ONCE"  it was the late Kuya Doy Aradaza who asked me to perform and i was so happy that i  have given that opportunity and called me  MISS WHITNEY from that time on I  was under his wing .
jessie Glova as 80's blonde whitney Houston
 During the pageant night ... I performed " I WANNA DANCE WITH SOMEBODY."

Third Year high School it was the tine that i have been  full pledged performer and a Drag Artist ... I performed I ALWAYS LOVE which i believe its one of the most difficult song to sing it was't even a difficult song for me ... i was already feeling her soul like has influenced me and inspired me and  for years   it has become  my song .

Jessie Glova preparing for the shoot as Whitney Houston
First year College theres a pageant that im helping out it was Janna Ebalzado who directed the show Ms Circulo Espanyol and they went short of performers so they turned to me  and asked me to sing since my friend Ana  Fegi already performed two songs ,with Anna  support and   encouragement they persuaded me sing and oohhhh dear  Im so  glad i did ....such a memorable day for me.

jessie Glova As Whitney Houston ith her Iconic bob fro
 It was that moment that i  can say  that I owned the song I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU. that was my first performance in school  and has hugely made an impact to my life during college .

jessie Glova as whitney a..her look for an album cover
Finishing University and along side performing in Bird Cage bar Im proud to say that my repertoire includes Whitney's Classics  that was quite a turning point of my life  and i may just have to skip that part cos it involved something about LOVE....
 traveled and performed in hotels in different Cities around the globe worked in  a Music industry and was tasked /hired to look after bands like from the styling and etc I was their acting Manager and  their band leader from that point i get to sing male songs , i was restricted to sing female songs and have changed me definitely but it was my choice to conform and follow them since they know best 
I continued traveling I landed a hotel job in London UK... after my 2 year contract  i went home .  It was a different feeling , a feeling of emptiness,loneliness and feeling lost .

I went to take another degree . finished Diploma in Proficiency in Professional Education in University of San Jose . that year I was again associated with my old friends the DIVAS and reunited with the Late Mommy Doy now i know its by fate  I came home for soul searching and thank GOD i have found it ..... I went to perform  again as DRAG .

Jessie Glova A perfect Whitney Houston Angle
My first performance was  Whitney Houston's TRY IT ON MY OWN. It was one of my best moments  because  that's the last Miss Gay  Pageant  directed by Mommy Doy and ironically it was the reunion of all the past winners from the 80's til present, its seems that he knew that it is coming .

With my life with the DIVAS as i have chosen a career I have made myself a  certified  make-up artist went to study in Singapore to make my career a legit. Myself , i was full of fire , passion , very driven , wild with creative imagination  and  big dreams , I worked hard and so determined that I can stand by myself  I was inspired to be like my sisters  the DIVAS , I made it , succeeded and truly and had a career  and carved a name in the Industry ,but sadly things changed .... it was not that i expected and never thought will happen  , friendship  shuttered into pieces  I was really devastated ..it was never my intention to outshine anybody nor to compete with ... It was all an honest living.  My Friends turned their back at me , because of false accusations   I felt I was like the baddest person in the world but  I know I was not doing wrong for God is my Witness .... I was devastated ... I wasn't able to have the chance to explain nor to redeem myself, but instead , I chose to be quiet and persevered.

That made me stronger and have grown as responsible individual,  just being myself ,I learned to let go of  the negativity . I was certainly and  literally  I was Living in  Whitney Houston's first come back abum " TRY IT ON MY OWN." I need to survive make a living put  food on my table .
RESPECT , PERSEVERANCE , HARD WORK , HONEST LIVING AND BEING POSITIVE... what i was holding to  ... I slowly gained back my friends and I wish and until now I pray that we can be together again  I miss you sisters !!! as what MOMMY DOY wants us to be  is to continue his Legacy.

He created me , and gave me a life in DRAG I will  not going to stop being one .... Im keeping it because for me i know He is happy for me as I continue what he wants me to be.

last month I received a text message  that i get to portray WHITNEY HOUSTON  as  a tribute . I was really happy ,very very happy so i can showcase what i believe a gift  , a gift to influence others to love what they do. I'm so happy and scared at the same time ... because im scared I couldn't carry her character ....and cant give justice .

6:30 pm i started with my first look , it gave me goose bumps what i was looking at the mirror resembles Whitney Houston and now i believe its easier for me because she is always a part of me and we both draw our emotions in similar fraction with regards to friends , love and work .

I did four different looks ... it was pretty amazing I did my own hair and make-up and as well the styling it was really a different fulfillment me acting and feeling like WHITNEY HOUSTON even for a day is already a DREAM COME TRUE cos there's only one queen of soulful ballads .

I have lived with her music ... its in my veins , heart and blood , but  Im grateful to GOD for have given me such  beautiful talent i have created myself  to look  quite a like to  my idol Whitney Houston ... this ONE MOMENT IN TIME  i have felt THE GREATEST LOVE OF ALL . ... I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU WHITNEY for me you and your songs will live forever in our hearts ... I'M SAVING ALL THE LOVE. ..

THE TRUTH ABOUT AIRBRUSH MAKE-UP by : Jessie Glova




GOING FOR AIRBRUSH OR JUST PLAIN CONVENTIONAL?????
MODEL GWEN TROT AIRBRUSH MAKE-UP BY JESSIE GLOVA

  ATTN : ALL THE BRIDES TO BE , BUDDING MAKE-UP  ARTISTS , MAKE-UP JUNKIES AND  EVERYONE ....


I have been a Make-up artist for about 2 decades and i have been using different techniques and mediums ... similar to paintings i also call my foundation as medium ....from the cake  to Airbrush Make-up.


Airbrush make-up for me is such a life saver... it makes your job a lot easier and gives a flawless effect and as well its saves a lot of time ...here ill be showcasing different types of Airbrush products .. I am a Krayolan Airbrush user for years ,one thing i love with  Krayolan it has a very matte effect at the start when it begins to blend it gives a very luminous, velvety and silky feel and it lasts or stays  for more than 12 hours .


 MAKE -UP ARTIST JESSIE GLOVA DOING AIRBRUSH
Krayolan Airbrush make-up for me has a very fine  in texture , very smooth silicon finish foundation  and it really layers your skin with similarly another skin with a minimal amount of the product it takes  6 to  12 drops  it can already cover the entire face  .

Airbrush makeup is makeup sprayed onto the skin using an Airbrush gun  instead of being applied with sponges, brushes, fingers, or other methods. It is popular in hollywood films and theater so as the celebrity sunless tanning ..... but now there are products  which are  designed for personal cosmetic use or home use. . Airbrush systems designed for these purpose are usually smaller and work at a lower pressures  designed for cosmetics than systems used in industrial applications which is designed for hard paints  .

according to my research in wikipedia

The technique was first used in 1925 on actors in BEN HUR  ,,..one of my best movies of all time and has since grown in popularity in the entertainment business and to date.

The History of Airbrush Makeup

AIRBRUSH MAKE-UP BY JESSIE GLOVA USING KRAYOLAN COSMETICS

 


In this article we will take a look at the history of Airbrush Make-up The first Airbrush was invented in 1879 by Abner Peeler using mostly spare parts from a jeweler’s  workshop, 4 years later a company by the name of Liberty Walkup began marketing Peeler’s invention. In 1893 Thayer and Chandler Art Materials presented the first modern airbrush at the World Columbian Exposition in Chicago, this device resembled the body of a pen and functioned similarly to the way the modern airbrushes do today. 
In 1958 MGM began production on their epic film Ben Hur  (1959) – during production the makeup artists found themselves needing to apply faux tans to the thousands of extras who were supposed to be Romans, the airbrush proved to be their answer. They began spraying the extras with a makeshift foundation and found that the method worked extremely well.

Its revival started in some early and more resent sci-fi films. It is used to enhance many alien characters, prosthetic make up. In the mid 70’s airbrush face painting emerged as a popular art form that leaked slowly into Hollywood studios. It was first seen in the hair and beauty trade shows, masquerade balls, make-up competitions . Temporary tattoos, conventional make up, fantasy make up, Bodyart, fingernails hair and even airbrush tanning are some of the styles being used today.

Uses

Airbrush makeup has become more popular with the advent of HIGH DEFINITION VIDEO and TELEVISION  (HD). Traditional powder or liquid based make-up can settle and appear in pores and wrinkles and be visible on HD film.

As the makeup is sprayed on, it connects with the skin as millions of droplets of formula. The formula can create an even, sheer, natural appearance to the skin that, if applied properly for a natural look, can appear natural and non-heavy like traditional makeup.
Airbrush Make-up by Jessie Glova

Airbrush makeup wears longer than traditional powder or liquid foundation able to stay put upwards of 12-24 hours. It can be used to cover five o'clock shadow " it means the beard " for men. Airbrush makeup is also available for eye shadow, blush, eyebrows and lips and can be layered, shaded, highlighted and contoured

Application wise, the technique is more sanitary than traditional makeup application due the artist never having to touch the skin. It's also faster, if done by a trained artist. Fantasy and special effects are able to be stenciled or created by freehand.

Ingredients

Airbrush makeup comes in six different formulas:
  • Water based: Finely ground pigments dissipated in water.
  • Polymer-water-based: A mix of water, polymers and pigment, when airbrushed on the skin the polymer dries leaving a continuous coating on the skin.
  • Polymer-SD40-alcohol based: Instead of using water like the polymer-water-based formula, it uses alcohol which assists with drying of the makeup on the skin.
  • Alcohol based: Also called "temporary airbrush inks" alcohol based formulas are generally used when creating fake tattoos.
  • Silicone-based: Uses silicone for longer lasting wear and without fading. Silicone-based can be thinned with certain types of formula additives, for lighter coverage.[3]
Airbrush makeup can be removed by using a 50/50 mix of isopropyl alcohol and isopropyl myristate.

 WHY GOING FOR AIRBRUSH ON YOUR WEDDING DAY ?  

Airbrush Make-up : by Jessie Glova

 

I Always make sure that i have delivered right to my clients specially to the brides my explanations about the advantages of Airbrush Make-up  not everyone knows about how good it is ... well i trust Airbrush so much that i cant be convinced to like switch to the conventional medium and no other medium that's a lot more appropriate specially on someone's big day and it has to be special right ?
 
1. Full Coverage, Sheer Texture: A true airbrush foundation is high in coverage, but thin in texture, offering a high-opacity or full coverage application that's dispersed as sheerly and evenly as possible. The result is perfect-looking skin achieved with a minimum of product.

2. Refined Pattern: The spray dot-pattern the airbrush puts down on the skin registers less on camera than the patterns and trace lines that brushes and sponges leave behind. However, as invisible as these marks may appear to the naked eye, they can be quite visible when your client's face is shown in Hi-Definition close-up or in a High Resolution Digital Photo.

While other advantages include speed of application, longevity, and durability, the true advantage of airbrush makeup is the beautiful finished result it produces. The special foundations for airbrush makeup is more expensive than that of regular makeup because of the consistency and special ingredients they use to make this very thin formula with maximum coverage!

THE ADVANTAGES OF AIRBRUSH MAKEUP:

· Maximum coverage with minimal product
· Delivers a natural and translucent look that is as smooth as silk
· Great for oily skin
· Fantastic for overly active skin that tends to "eat" makeup
· Lasts ten to twelve hours - excellent for bridal makeup, it's a bride's best friend
