What’s the Difference? (Makeup Workshop vs. Makeup Party)

Hi everyone!

Thanks so much for the overwhelming wave of bookings for the next batch of Personal Makeup Workshop (Batch 12) as well as the newly launched Beauty Sorority: Makeup Party! We only have a few slots left! To book, send a message to 09156218309.

To avoid confusion, kindly read the differences between the two events! This post will guide you on choosing which is more suitable  for you.

Personal Makeup Workshop – a beauty session/makeup workshop that teaches the basics of :

  1. Skincare
  2. Discussion of the Different Types of Makeup Brushes
  3. How to Take Care of Your Brushes
  4. Foundation (Choosing the Right Kind/Shade and Application)
  5. Concealing Problem Areas
  6. Applying Blush, Bronzer, and Highlight
  7. Daytime to Nightime Makeup Application
  8. All About Eyebrows
  9. Different Ways of Lining the Eyes

Freebies included in the Personal Makeup Workshop:

  • 12-pc brush set from Beauty Cosmetics
  • food and beverage
  • cupcakes from Tessa's cupcakes

Price: PHP1,900.00 (discount rate—for payments settled by Dec. 31, 2013) PHP2,300.00 (regular rate—for payments made from January 1 onwards)

Date and Time: January 11, 2013, 1-4PM

Venue: LSG Studios in Quezon City (map here)


Beauty Sorority: A Makeup Party – a monthly makeup party/get together of makeup enthusiasts that consists of fun activities and games related to beauty, makeovers for all the guests, raffles, free-flowing food and drinks, unlimited photo taking and many more!

Freebies included in the Beauty Sorority: A Makeup Party:

  • a beauty makeover done by yours truly
  • makeup consultation

So you see, the workshop is more of a hands-on teaching of makeup application on students. It will be a sit-down class. This is perfect for beginners!

The makeup party, on the other hand, is an event for all the makeup lovers who want to have fun! No formal teaching about makeup application, but there will be several demonstrations and everyone gets to have a makeover!

There are freebies for both events!

I hope this clears up any confusion! And yes, these are monthly events—the February schedule will be out soon! Be updated instantly by following

A #GoRealGoLarge Christmas with Del Monte!

Open Invite for DM Christmas - LR

Your favorite Del Monte Juice Drinks (Four Seasons, Sweetened Pineapple, Mango, and Pine-Orange)—the real fruit refreshment you've always loved— now comes in a larger, more convenient packaging! Since its launch, the Del Monte Juice Drinks has become a household staple and local icon in the realm of food and refreshments. Now, you can bring your delicious drink and get refreshed anytime, anywhere. Convenience can be experienced with the new Del Monte Juice Drink in two ways.

One, it now comes in a large 1 liter tetra, with a suitable amount to accompany you through your day, while not being too small it leaves you hanging and not too large that you can't carry it around. It's lightweight and easy-to-carry, definitely a treat for its suggested retail price of P60 ONLY. Secondly, the packaging is now in a re-sealable tetra, making it a hassle free partner for people on the go, or as the best drink to bring for long trips and activities on-location.

These Del Monte Juice Drinks come in its four classic flavors—Four Seasons, Pineapple, Pine Orange and Mango, upgraded and upsized to fit the more mobile audience of today. Now, fans of the iconic drink can enjoy their most-loved delicious flavors and get healthy and refreshed anytime, anywhere.

Watch out as #GoRealGoLarge launches into the social media sphere this Christmas with the idea of jolly spirit, gift-giving, Holiday cheer and true hope! Celebrate the Holidays as Del Monte gives a cheer-filled Christmas 3D video wall-mapping showcase to the rhythm of festive tunes at 30th St., Cor. 9th Ave., Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City this December 19-21 every 9pm.

You can also help bring smiles to our kababayans affected by typhoon Yolanda. Bring a gift for them and get a fruity surprise in return!

See you there!

Batch 11 Personal Makeup Workshop


Hi everyone!

I am reporting back to share what happened during the 11th batch of the makeup workshop held here in Manila! I met 5 beautiful ladies that day namely Dwigs, Sky, Chen, Precious, and Jerlin! Casa Bocobo Hotel took really good care of my clients! We were given a spacious function room to hold the workshop in, ambiance was perfect, and yummy food from Café Bocobo were served for merienda. As always, all my students got their free makeup brushes from Beauty Cosmetics containing all the brushes they need; and Alma, the owner of Tessa’s Cupcakes, personally delivered the free cupcakes for all the ladies. :)


Give away personalized cupcakes this holiday season! Contact Tey through


The usual set up of all the makeup products that my students need for the workshop—they get to try out brands like Benefit, Avon, Ben Nye, Revlon, Face Atelier, Neutrogena, ELF, Loreal, Maybelline, and many many more! We have a wide variety of different types of makeup in different shades to fit each student’s needs.


We had so much fun chit-chatting while the workshop was ongoing that we didn’t notice the time! We covered everything from skincare down to the transformation of daytime to nighttime makeup application. We ended the workshop with the handing of the beauty session certificates:


The super shy and quiet Precious!


Dwiggs, the Marian-Rivera kaloka-like!


Sky, the woman with such energy and personality! I envy her hair!!!


Chen! The med-tech who does a GREAT job blending!!!


Another successful batch of the beauty makeup session! Thank you so much ladies!

Up next was a one-on-one session with Jerlin! We tackled different problem areas that Jerlin needed help with—one being her sensitive skin. She was able to take down all the different products that I recommended to her. Our session was easy flowing as Jerlin is such a fast learner! I’ve never met anyone (with no background in makeup application) do such a beautiful eyeliner flick yet!!! You rock, Jerlin!

She also got herself the free brush set, the meal from Café Bocobo to go, a cupcake, and a certificate.

Thank you so much, Jerlin!

Beauty Gift Ideas 2013

Hi everyone! Christmas is right around the corner and I’m sure some of you are not yet done with all the Christmas shopping! So today, I figured I should write about my personal Beauty Gift Ideas to help out. These are mainly related to beauty, so it would be a perfect guide for all the gentlemen out there!

1. Naked Flushed Palette from The Style Quarter (PHP2,250.00) | Click here to order | – my vlogger friend from Seattle, Jerome of ohitsrome on Youtube, gave me this palette as a pasalubong from abroad, and it is honestly one of the best I’ve used! It’s a 3-in-1 palette containing the contouring powder, a highlighting powder, and a blush shade! It’s perfect for any woman out there! It’s really compact and you can put it in your purse for touch-ups! I absolutely love this palette and will review it as soon as possible!


2. Beauty Cosmetics 13-pc Brush Set (PHP1,000.00) | Text 09175388781 to order | – I have been using this brush set for so many months already on myself, my clients, and my workshops and never once did it fail me. This is definitely the perfect brush set for any cosmetic-loving woman out there. I has all the brushes you need! You get the powder brush, blush brush, buffing/buffer brush, foundation brush, concealer brush, 2 eyeshadow brushes, 2 blending brushes, 2 eyeliner brushes and a lip brush! They also come in different colors like, pink, purple, yellow…etc! Every girl would love this set.


3. Add spice to gift-giving with a surprise electronic holiday greeting card! We all know that we live in the digital age—everyone’s on their smartphones most times of the day! WeChat just launched their newest Christmas greeting feature last night, and now you can send out cheers to everyone! Download WeChat by going to! You can choose from not only one but ten Christmas templates! Before, users can only send voice messages or photos and then generate the Christmas card. Now, the user has to not only send the photo but also send the voice message and then generate the personalized WeChat Voice Greeting Cards with his own photo. Now won’t that make your loved ones tear up this holiday season (especially the ones abroad)?


Don’t forget to also check out your friends/family’s wishlists via WeChat’s Moments feature to see what it is they truly want to receive for Christmas! Not only will this be super easy (you won’t have to guess anymore!) but it will also make them really happy (no more gift returns/exchanges!)


If by chance you see a makeup item on that wish list and you don’t know where to get it, email me or text me at 09156218309 and I’ll help you out! My WeChat ID is saytioco!

4. Cailyn Gelux Eyebrow (PHP575.00) from Carmen Claire | Click here to order | – This is a must-have brow product if you want your brows to stay put all day long! You will love its waterproof gel consistency—that even on a hot, sweaty day, your brows will stay A-ok! A little goes a long way, this product is very matipid!


5. Makeup/Beauty Session with Say on 2014 (PHP2,300.00/group and PHP3,500.00/one on one session/solo) | Text 09156218309 to avail | One of the ideal gifts that you can claim next year! My workshops are hands-on and are perfect for women who want to learn the basics of personal makeup application. We have done a total of 11 batches of makeup workshops for 2013 (click here to see them all) and looking forward to more batches this coming year. The fee of PHP2,300.00 (group session) or PHP3,500 (one on one session) already includes the workshop materials: a FREE 13pc brush set from Beauty Cosmetics, a FREE meal, cupcakes for freebies, beauty session certificate, and you won’t need to bring anything! Everything will be provided for you—the makeup to be used and mirrors. Book your session now for January 2014! Surprise a special someone with a gift voucher for this beauty session, email or text 09156218309 to make arrangements.


Sign up before the year ends to get the early bird discount!

6. Skintology MicroDiamond Scrub (Order at 09178501109) – another wonderful gift idea for your loved one! This is a product that I have tried and tested! I made an in-depth review video for your reference. I also have a special CODE for you to use to avail of this product for a much lower price! Promo code will expire on January 1, 2014. So place your orders on or before December 31, 2013!

Batch 10 Personal Makeup Workshop (Hotel Kimberly Manila)


The 10th batch of the Personal Makeup Workshop was held last November 30, 2013 at Hotel Kimberly Manila! It was yet another fun-filled session with another batch of wonderful ladies! The workshop was broken down into 3 time slots/sessions to fit their different schedules.


My first two students were Ivy and Maris! What’s so unique about Ivy is that she has such a cute and tiny face! She shared how tipid she is when it comes to using makeup as she only needs a little to cover up her entire face! Maris, on the other hand, is a beauty who works as a flight attendant! She needed help particularly with doing her eye makeup. Ivy would totally agree with me when I say that Maris has the most perfect eyebrowssss! It was such a fun session with these two girls!


I laid down all of the makeup products for them to try out and use! Different kind and shades of foundations, powders, eyeshadows, primers, blush, bronzer, bb cream, and many more!


Maris and Ivy went home with their free cupcakes from Tessa’s cupcakes and of course their free 13-pc brush set from Beauty Cosmetics!


I spent the next session with another set of wonderful ladies namely Madonna, Andrea and Vergie! It wasn’t only a learning session for us, but a LAUGHING one, too! For some reason, I kept coming up with weird Tag-lish phrases which cracked the girls up! Hehehe! I loved how we hung out like girl friends! That truly is the most fun way of learning easy makeup application!


All the girls went home with smiles on their faces, cupcakes and free brush sets!


The last session I had was with Rodalyn! It was quite timely, as she and daughter were heading out to a concert right after the workshop! I gave Rodalyn tips and tricks on how to achieve an easy makeup look especially mommy-friendly! This woman has the most beautiful skin—it doesn’t look her age at all!!

I really, really had a lot of fun with my 10th batch! I can’t believe we’ve reached 10 batches already! Thank you so much!
