I am back.
No, I am not jumping into the fashion and makeup blogger bandwagon. I am just reclaiming my domain that has been long forgotten and going to move my portfolio stuff from Tumblr to my own site (the one you’re looking at now). I thought I lost my domain a while back but I just happened to forget the email associated with the domain! Silly me.
Anyways, now I am the proud owner of krystelperfecta.com (again) and will try to keep this site alive, whenever I can.
Most of you know that I was that makeup artist trying to make her mark in the industry a few years ago. I collaborated with a number of fashion photographers in Australia and Indonesia and I wasn’t sure why I never end up as a bridal makeup artist. I always end up doing these crazy conceptual fashion makeup for my portfolio which I enjoyed but it didn’t provide enough support for my daily life. Maybe I wasn’t trying hard enough to get into the bridal industry. Maybe I never discover the interest. Or maybe I lack the motivation to wake up early in the morning (gasp!). All sorts of maybe(s). But deep down, I love the fashion makeup industry and nothing is more rewarding to see your work end up in magazine spreads and lookbooks. To constantly explore and experiment with different makeup concepts are what excites me the most. But truth be told, I haven’t utilized my makeup brushes which I carefully collected since the start of my makeup career (except on myself, occasionally) in the past 3 years (gasp!)
I got comfortable. I got bored. I wanted more than to just be a makeup artist. I want to own a business. I want to be my own boss. But more on that story later. It is not what this site is all about, Krystel!
Anyways, it has been 3 years now since I last applied makeup on someone’s face (I managed to still adding more makeup products to my pile and put a bit of mascara and eyeliner on daily basis, thank God). I want to get back at it. Maybe not as a career anymore but I still want to keep producing creative work. So, I decided to pick up photography again. I miss that feeling of being behind the camera, documenting my own work, and (hopefully) witness my work published in magazines! Yes, I want to feel that feeling again.
So here I am now, dedicating this site to my makeup and photography work.. and you’ll hear some stories from me too from time to time.
Talk to you on the other side!
