Comments

You have a degree in international relations, worked in retail, fashion, and property development. Now you're back working in fashion as Louis Vuitton Philippines' client relations manager.
Yes, I was with Rustan’s for five years as a customer development manager. I then joined Discovery Primea, as deputy director of services, where I work closely with the construction team, interior designers, and suppliers to source and purchase furniture, fixtures, and equipment for the hotel. On the side, I also model and host. I like keeping myself busy and living a well-balanced life filled with things I love to do.

What impression do you hope to leave through your personal look?
That I'm approachable and friendly.

“Makeup for me is meant to enhance your natural beauty and not drastically change the way you look and so I often go for a light, natural, and fresh look.”

Your other dreams?
I dream to build and decorate my future home, which I am slowly working on. Another dream I’ve always had is to put up my own clothing store.

Most memorable beauty faux pas?
I was talking to someone at an event and I could feel my falsies on one eye slowly coming off. Horror!

Beauty icons?
Grace Kelly. She was a timeless beauty who was flawlessly elegant with such radiant skin. I love her subtle, neat, and fresh look. My modern-day beauty
icon is Keira Knightley. No matter what look or hairstyle she sports, she is always beautiful. She is glamorous yet natural at the same time.

“I’ll never compromise on good skincare. I’ve been using La Mer for the longest time and couldn’t be happier. It is unique and effective because it is composed of an extraordinary blend of sea kelp, vitamins, and minerals.”

Best beauty advice you’ve ever received?
Never sleep with your makeup on no matter how tired you are and protect your skin from the sun at all costs—both from my mother.

Your personal definition of beauty?
Beauty to me is the ability to inspire. When I see a woman who is stunning on the outside and at the same time has a pleasing personality and a positive aura, she strikes me as a beautiful person.
