Each time a celebrity walks the red carpet, the first question asked is always “Who are you wearing?” The quick reply instantly gives the designer all the praise. Meanwhile, the makeup artists and the hairstylists that put in the hours to add the finishing touches to create the full package are only often given the recognition via an Instagram tag or shout out.
Last night at the first ever SM Beauty Ball, the spotlight was turned to the talented makeup artists who have dedicated their life’s work to bringing out the beauty in every single person their hands touch. Giving recognition to the country’s “Pioneers of Beauty” namely James Cooper, Jesi Mendez, and Fanny Serrano, and launching makeup artists Jigs Mayuga, Jake Galvez, Cristine Duque, Denise Ochoa, Mickey See, and Robbie Piñera as their new Makeover Masters, the country’s hub for all things beauty put together an evening that celebrated true beauty in all its glory.
