Makeup Artist Jelly Eugenio Talks About What It's Like to Work with Nadine Lustre
Describe the first time you met.
"I first met Nadine [during] a magazine shoot for [her and James Reid's] movie after Diary ng Panget. I did her and James' makeup at that time."
How did you end up working together?
"So in that shoot, she was really nice and shy, she was very quiet. And then I asked her who her makeup artist [was], or if she [had] one. And she said 'none yet', so nobody was handling her when it comes to makeup. So from then on, she started requesting [for] me [to do her makeup], [like] for the premiere night of that movie, and the endorsements that came after that."

How would you describe Nadine as a client?
"Nadine as a client is actually a dream come true because, for me as an artist, I like to create art on the face. With her and her creativity, and all the things she thinks about, it's not the usual beauty or pa-sweet, pabebe makeup. So I'm really enjoying my time, and I also love that it's also what she wants, so we have something in common."
