My Makeup Icons


I have a lot of "idols" when it comes to makeup artistry and it was only until last night - when a friend asked - when I realized that I have been really, really looking up to some people who have established their makeup empires. And it's not just because of owning and growing their businesses. It's more than science - which is good - as well. But most especially, their beauty philosophies inspire me so much. And I think that that makes a great artist  - to be honest, communicative and purposeful. So let me share with you more about them through their ideologies from experiences in and outside makeup, especially with their origins: photography, theatre, painting, hairstyling.
