Then last Friday, April 11th 2014, I was one of the bloggers invited to witness the grand opening of AV Makeup Studio. The studio was located at the 2nd floor, Symphony Tower 1, while the event was held at the Atrium level. The event was held at around 6:00 pm but due to personal issues, I left my house at nearly 7:00pm. I was elated to find out that when I got there, I was actually early. It turned out that Ana was doing all of the models’ makeup (Wow!). I didn’t mind, at least I was able to take more photos before the event finally started.

The theme of the event was ‘Royalty’ and everyone except me were wearing skirts/dresses (Sadly, I don’t own a skirt nor a dress, lol). Anyway, the event started with a prayer, and then followed by Ana Victorino’s opening remarks. She looks so stunning in her black & gold dress.
Forgive the crappy quality, I forgot my camera. I had to use my phone during the entire event
Then after dinner, Ana pulled off her famous 5 minute makeup look to one of the attendees. She had so much spare time, she even did her own blush during those five minutes.
After that, another round of games.

Then lastly, the fashion show. Sadly, due to my crappy camera, (not saying my iphone cam is crappy, but during events, it’s not really something that you should bring) I wasn’t able to take a decent shot of the models. Thankfully, SisterSecrets was able to take the models’ photos. As I’ve mentioned, Ana did all of their makeup and all of them looked gorgeous. I wish I brought my camera so I can take their photos. Oh, and by the way, these models were wearing the designs of De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde’s future fashion designers. One of them was the design of Ana’s co-Youtuber, AngKikayKo. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to take a photo of it either.

Sadly, me and my co-bloggers/friend had to leave the event early since it was getting late. But of course, we had to drop by to AV’s Makeup Studio.
The studio is really beautiful. Imagine, at 21, she made it happen. She made her dreams come true. In her opening remarks, she said, during her 18th birthday, she was asked whether she would like a debut or anything else, she preferred a makeup kit. Well, here’s her giant makeup kit.
From the bottom of my heart, (okay, that sounded cheesy, but can you just please go with it? I’m a fan :P) Congratulations, Ana V! and to the entire AV Team! I’m genuinely happy for you, and I feel very honored that you invited me as one of your guest bloggers. You have always been my favorite, and it’s you, being so down to earth that made you who you are today. Good luck and I wish you all the best!
