On her last week in the Riviera with a pretty loaded sched as you can imagine, I had the privilege of working with one of the most-promising HMUA of the decade. This young Cebuana raises our flag once again in the world of beauty as she did some fashion gigs during her short revisit in Europe. I just feel so lucky meeting her [finally] as we did a beauty shoot last Wednesday. As much as I’m thrilled to talk about our recent photo shoot and oh, I just can’t wait to see the pictures, I’m also excited to share the inspiring story of this artist who ‘loves to create beauty’….
Make up was never her first option. Fashion designing was. From a young girl until her eyes witnessed the world’s different culture and style as she travels, the passion for fashion flows in her blood. She simultaneously completed her nursing degree [yes, this brilliant girl is a registered nurse too] along with all the fashion designing courses at Fashion Institute of the Philippines Cebu, including Fashion Makeup and Hairstyling Class. She then realised that she loves making people beautiful. The feeling gives her a rush especially when her efforts are well appreciated – it drives her to do her best.
She has worked with various fellow artists – models, photographers and stylists which you can see on numerous digital and printed publications.
She has mastered all services from photoshoot to bridal/debutants, to high fashion/ avant garde. As for her, bridal makeup requires perfection and in avant garde, it challenges her creativity and versatility as an artist.
Her flair has also taken her to the real world of high fashion and her work has been featured at the prestigious Vogue Italia.

That doesn’t end there. She keeps on enhancing her skills through collaboration with other artists, studying continuously and teaching what she learns. She just finished another intensive beauty and fashion make-up course at Make-up Forever Academy here in Nice, France.
This gorgeous lady also posed for some fashion ads and was also crowned as HappyCebu.com’s 100 Prettiest Girls 1st Poster Girl for 2012.
On top of all her achievements, there are still so many items to tick in her bucket list such as knee-shaking experiences, like bungee jumping, skydiving and a whole lot more crazy ideas. Also, she’s looking forward to travel the world more, explore several opportunities with her God-given talent and be with the man she could spend all these happy things with [dude, whoever you are, you're one lucky guy!].
She believes that everything is possible – that you can do so much more if you just believe of who you are and what you can do.
And she’s all set, ready to conquer the world of beauty, fashion and so much more….
