FaceBookIt: Better At Weddings Than You by Mina V. Esguerra

20 April 2017

Sometimes, a romance book hits all the right spots, and you are left thinking about it even days after you finish reading it. Sometimes, you even make a makeup look dedicated to it.

Hello, friends, this FaceBookIt entry is inspired by Mina V. Esguerra’s new book, Better At Weddings Than You.


In this story, there’s a wedding to plan. The bride-to-be is in love with the wedding planner who coincidentally is a friend from way back. The groom-to-be fires aforementioned wedding planner and hires our main character to take over a month before the wedding. Instant attraction. Clothes are shed. What now?

You need to visit my post on Bookbed to read the complete entry, but I'm giving you a sneak peek by posting the photos here.

With the title itself and the number of weddings discussed in the book, I almost made a bridal makeup look but decided against it because I didn’t want to jinx my own wedding, HAH. Instead, I made a look inspired by wedding planner-extraordinaire Daphne Cardenas.
“It’s wasn’t a nine-to-five desk job, but she carried the weight of a client’s hopes and dreams all the time.”
As such, I imagine her wearing simple and fuss-free makeup that can be done in less than 15 minutes.




Something that can take her from a day wedding to an evening reception—one with earthy colors, subtle and understated. Nothing too flashy nor sparkly; just the right amount of shimmer where the light hits the face and contouring where the shadows fall. (After all, she wouldn’t want to steal attention from the bride!)
