About Me

I have been a make-up artist since as far as i can remember .... i love to see colors and and play up with them.. i used to play with my moms face cream and lipstick and use it as blush and eyeshadow... i love painting so much i love color relationship... i am a happy child i believe.. during my high school days my talents were tapped from singing, dancing, poster making, painting make-up and styling... I used up everything and made me realize that i can be more productive not just as a student but a person as well... many of my friends cousins are my so called victims... they are my canvass for my make up skill and they all loved it ..til then i do make up for school programs pageants and graduations... and i can recall my first wedding make-up it was my close friend Minerva Casas who truly trusted me and really paid me for my services and from that i learned that i can be a professional makeup artist...

during my college days it was my face that has been a canvass i tried it on to my face ...different make -up applications till i got the whole picture of diff. looks and and how make-up can change you... I started with cheap products and some are given by friends... I remember my friend Jayward who loves to do make -up ,challenged me to collect more make- up with brands ..so i managed to save money and bought what i want....I joined the dramatics ensemble as a make-up artist and did Anna Fegi... i transferred to the Adelante dance Troupe and became the official make-up artist... It helped me a lot in really mastering my craft Ms. Marti Ybanez can attest to that... I became friends with the top make-up artists of Cebu that time and they inspired me more to keep on doing it... 19995 i joined the sandiego dance company and started as make -up artist and eventually became a performer... being a performer, like in theater you tend to project different looks be able to convey the message of a dance and song.... so thats where i was trained to see make-up as not just cosmetics but as a form of artistry...

2nd sem of 1995 i tried different thing i joined a fashion design competition which was held in Gaisano South Cebu... and Thank God I won the Grand prize as young designer of cebu... and Given the chance by Mrs. Young to work in the store for 3 months and thankful being trained by the late Dudes Abella... College days was my turning point of what to do with my life... graduated Business Administration

and right after college moved to Singapore to do make-up and Styling and perform as well... a year after that my boss told me to ,manage his bands in Malaysia but what happen was i became the all around person there were like 3 -4 bands in my hand that ill help to style and train them on how to wear make-up... our bands normally comprises 3-4 females same as the males... and so it was a very tedious job cos i have to be responsible with them ... we have travelled the entire south east doing our thing... I was bored so i decided to go to australia to find a job in make-up but it did not work out ... eventually a friend offered me job in the United Kingdom to do hotel jobs ... so i grabbed the opportunity stayed there for 2 years ... made friends with a filipina from cagayan who worked in a salon and introduce me to the right people in the industry ,... we both went to London fashion week and was stunned with the clothes and make-up ... from then i know what i really wanna do with my life .. she convinced me to join a crash course about skin care and make-up... and ask me to assist her... I applied for another working visa to get a job of my preference , ... make-up... I was on my sector based scheme visa.. ,. and i am only entitled to work in a hotel and not in the salon... so my application was denied and asked me to go back to the phils. and get a license or apply for another visa which is a student visa ... but i dont think i can afford it ...When I came back I know exactly what i wanna do... Make -up is my thing... I have invested ... and dream to make it big not in a foreign country but in the Philippines ... Its a great self -fulfillment to do what you are good into and retrieve the first thing you love to do.
