Hillarie Parungao

Hillarie and I on set
I first worked with Hillarie years ago for a shoot way before she won Miss World Philippines 2015. She must have been around 19 or 20 then. We really hit it off then, always laughing and talking. She’s very light on the heart. Elegant and charming.

I have been watching her rise through the beauty pageant circuit and I am truly proud of her success.

I wish you all the best dear in all of your endeavors! Good luck!



This girl has amazing cheekbones.
Around early March, I got a series of calls for a project. When I was awarded the project, I was asked by the producer to come in during final casting to take a look at the top two models who were shortlisted for this project.

As I entered the casting area, I just heard “Oi Tor, ikaw pala!”. To my surprised, I looked up and  it was Hillarie. We catched-up for a bit before I was brought to one corner to be briefed by the producer regarding the “look” of the shoot. I got introduced to the other model, Isabel, before I  started working on both girls for their workshop.


Once the workshop was over and since casting will be done a few days after, I brought both girls to one side and gave them tips on how to maintain their skin for the IMG_7733upcoming shoot. No salt, no alcohol, and lots of sleep.


The night before the shoot, I received word that Hillarie was cast as the lead talent. Before heading to bed, I prepared all that I needed to emphasize that beautiful healthy glow that Hillarie inately posses.

Here’s my edit of the tvc:
