I have been in the fashion industry since 1998. During my first 6 years I was a model in the Southeastern Asia region, primarily in the Philippines. During that time, I realized that my true passion was cosmetology. I began by applying makeup to my friends. Then after realizing my capabilities, in 2004 I attended Ricky Reyes Learning Institute in the Philippines and received my Certificate in Makeup Artistry. The style of makeup in which I focused was Classical, Glamorous and Fantasy. I strongly believe that “Knowledge is Power,” so I am continually broadening my skills in makeup application by attending classes. I realize this need as makeup styles change in the fashion industry.
