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.

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.

Kris Bernal

I had the opportunity to work with Kris Bernal when Suzi Entrata – Abrera went on leave from our show MARS.

I have never worked with Kris up until she was booked for the show. But, we know of each other from her past guestings in our show and when I see her on occasions running on the treadmill beside me in Gold’s Gym Timog. Boy she can run!

We really hit it off. She is such a sweetheart. We talked about beauty, skin care, fitness, travels… boys *laughs*. I had a wonderful time with her. I hope she did too.

Here are some excerpts from the show on her two-day stint as guest co-host on Mars. Enjoy!
