Hannah Ledesma for Star Magic Ball 2017

I had the privilege of doing Hannah‘s makeup a few weeks ago for the Star Magic Ball 2017.

Her makeup look was a total “360” of the look I created on her two years ago. Click here to see my blog about it.

A few days before the event, Hannah and I had discussions on what her look should be. She wanted her “look” to be fresh and simple; a reflection of her personality. Hannah also showed me a photo of her gown. It was voluminous and white. I decided it was best to keep her makeup look simple but elegant.

I found out on the day of the ball that Hannah’s gown had LED lights on them.

Here’s the complete beauty breakdown of Hannah‘s look:

I started by using a face mask (from Sephora) on Hannah . I then used a toner formulated for dry skin and followed that up with an eye cream (both from VMV Hypoallergenics).


Primer: RMK Makeup Base

Foundation: A combination of RMK Liquid foundation in 101, 103 and 105.

Concealer: Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard.

Blush: A combination of Glossier Cloud Paint in Huff and Haze.

Highlighter: Inglot AMC Face and Body Illuminator in 61.


A combination of  MUD Cosmetics Zero Powder and Ben Nye’s Banana Powder. As a finishing, Guerlain Meteorites.

Bronzer: Nars Bronzing Powder Laguna

Eye Shadow:  Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Amethyst

Eyeliner: Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink

Janella Salvador

I met Janella Salvador on the day of our shoot. I have never met her before that and I was a bit nervous. It was coupled by the fact that I had to had regional approval to get this job. So it was a big deal.

But all of that nervousness was set aside when she started singing while Janet, the hair stylist, and I was doing her hair and makeup. She placed us in a very relaxed atmosphere.

This was the print shoot for Olay Natural White.

There was a very strict hair and makeup requirement that had to be followed. And one must abide. Less is always more.

I managed to bump into her print ad on line and it dawned on me that this photoshoot made it to the Olay Billboard that she starred along side Pia Wurtzbach and Charo Santos.

Here are some photos of Janella linked from my Instagram Page.


Hillarie Parungao

I was lucky enough to have been booked for a job and my talent was Hillarie. Seen on the photo above was taken before the tape started rolling. That’s the hair stylist, Janet Saberon , Hillarie and I.

The first time I worked with Hillarie was when she was around 19 years old. That’s around 6 years ago. She was only a supporting character at that time. Now, I’m so proud of her achievements. Her light and bubbly character has never changed even after becoming Miss World Philippines 2015. She’s fun, talkative and full of energy!

Here are some of Hillarie’s Snapchat videos she took while we were prepping for the shoot.

Coleen Perez

I was booked as the makeup artist for a DIY Hair coloring product.

I was told than the main talent was to arrive a little after lunch. So we shot crucial scenes before her arrival.

I remembered that I was checking some of my brushes when Coleen burst through the door, and we both exclaimed “Beh, ikaw pala!”(Babe, it’s you!). Being an actress,I have met Coleen a number of times in GMA Network.

This was the first time we have worked together. It was quite a grueling shoot, because anything shot with hair involved takes a while. Kudos to Aiky for a job well done on Coleen’s hairstyle for that day.

Here are some “on set” photos of Coleen and I.
