1.) Ben Nye  Luxury Powder in Banana

This loose powder is an essential in every makeup artist’s kit. It’s yellow toned therefore it suits most asian skin. I particularly like using this on morenas but it also compliments the skintone of chinitas.


2.) Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation

I have always been skeptical about HD makeup since it is very tricky to use. I also believed that HD (High Definition) makeup is in the application and not in the product but this revolutionary foundation has proven me wrong!! I am in love with this product!!! It’s very easy to apply and is very easy to blend. It has buildable coverage and even with full coverage, it doesn’t look heavy at all. It also feels very light on the skin.


3.) Kryolan Airbrush Micro Foundation

This airbrush foundation is one of my favorites. It’s pretty pricey but it’s all worth it. It is High Definition makeup so it doesn’t appear too thick on the face. It also feels very light on the skin.


4.) K-Palette Real Lasting Eyebrow Pen

This I cannot live without. I always have at least 2pcs in stock  because I cannot run out of this. I am not a big fan of structured eyebrows. I don’t like reshaping them so much. I want them to look as natural as possible. This product does just that! It looks so natural when applied and the best part is it stays on the whole day!!


5.) Maybeline Color Tattoo by Eye Studio

I apply this product right after my eye primer before applying the powder eye shadow. It helps the powder eye shadow adhere better. It also brings out the pigments.



6.) Make Up For Ever 9 Artist Shadow Palette in NUDE

This eye shadow palette is perfect for every occasion. You can use it from day to night. It is highly pigmented and very easy to apply! A must have in the kit!



7.) Estee Lauder Double Wear Zero Smudge Liquid Eyeliner in Black

Since my eyes get very oily, I have had difficulty searching for the perfect eyeliner. This product has saved me from smudges!!! This is the only eyeliner that works for me.


8.) BENCH Pretty When Pinched (Check & Lip Tint)

When I don’t like to wear makeup, this is my go to product. I just dab some on my cheeks and make sure I blend it well just to add a pop of color that looks natural then I dab a little on my lips as well. This lets me get away from not wearing any other makeup product on my face.


9.) MAC Fix+ Setting Spray

I use this product to set the makeup after I’m done applying everything else. This helps the makeup stay longer.


10.) Parian Spirit Brush Cleanser

I always buy the 950ml bottle since I clean my brushes every after use. This cleanser removes makeup from my brushes really quick and it leaves a citrusy smell. It also dries very quickly. My clients always compliment the smell of my brushes because of this cleanser.


As a service provider myself, I have the obligation to treat my clients with utmost respect, warmth, and gratitude. The mere fact that they have even just considered to book me is already a big honor for me. It means that they like what they have seen in my portfolio or also what people have been saying about me. I make sure that my clients are happy and content not just with my artistry but also with my service.



1.) First, I ask the client what she wants for her makeup look and hairstyle as well

2.) Then I ask what kind of event she is attending (wedding, debut, convention, modelling stint, photoshoot, formal, casual, etc)

3.) Then I ask what color the client is wearing to the event and also the cut of the gown which is important especially with the hairstyle

4.) I tell the client my plan for her over all look and if she agrees to it then I start doing my job

5.) I ask her if she is allergic to any makeup, skincare etc.

6.) I ask permission if I can groom the eyebrows if necessary (some people don’t like their eyebrows being touched and I respect this)

7.) While doing the makeup on my client I ask her if she likes what she is seeing and to feel free to inform me if she sees anything she’s not comfortable with.

8.) I ask the client if it would be okay for me to use false eyelashes (which I always do unless client doesn’t want me to)

9.) When I’m done, I ask the client again if she is happy with what I did and if she says yes then my work is done but if she says that she’s not comfortable with something I did then I make sure I address the issue and do everything I can to make sure the client gets what she wants.

10.) Once I see the big smile on my clients face, that’s when I know my work is done. I thank the client and bid her goodbye. I always walk them to the door and up to the gate to make sure that they feel that my service doesn’t end after they pay me.

After 8 years in this business, I have encountered many different types of personalities. This has taught me a lot and I can say that I try to improve on my customer service all the time.

HERE ARE MY TOP 3 PRIORITIES  (as a service provider)

1.) I answer texts and emails right away.

2.) I entertain any question the client may have regarding makeup products, rates, etc.

3.) I treat my clients with respect, warmth and with unending patience. In the end they almost always turn out to be good friends of mine.

Painting has been a part of me since I can remember. It’s a hobby that keeps me happy and at the same time productive during the lean months. My house has actually turned into a sort of art gallery. I  have so much paintings that I don’t know where to put them. I have no more empty walls. I even have paintings on my staircase and on top of shelves. My 3 children love to paint with me so they have a couple of artworks displayed in the house as well. My passion for art has influenced my kids. We make a day out of painting. They just love it!

I have had the privilege of having a 2-woman exhibit in my alma mater San Beda Alabang Museum called “CHROMA” back in 2013 I also had another group exhibit in Likha Diwa in UP Diliman.  These exhibits actually inspired me to paint more. I’ve been finishing at least 10-15 paintings a year so just imagine how much artwork I have in my house. I already sold a couple which I don’t normally do. My paintings mean a lot to me and I really don’t like parting with them. They’re like babies to me. I’ve given some as gifts though to really close friends and family. (This is ok since I get to see them when I go to their houses haha :)) )

Finding a hobby is important because it keeps you busy when you have nothing to do. It’s better than watching TV and sleeping the whole day. I could actually go on painting for 9 hours straight just stopping to eat or visit the little girls room. It makes me really tired but the sense of accomplishment after finishing a piece is just so gratifying. Looking at the colors keeps me relaxed and in a really happy mood. It makes me forget about my problems and worries. Painting for me is the perfect way to spend a day especially when I do it with my kids.



When I was preparing for my wedding, I and my husband knew that getting the right make-up artist is as important as getting the perfect videographer and photographer, as they are the ones who will immortalize our wedding day seen years and decades from now.
We knew that presentation and make-up are not things which we could compromise. I came across Ana Isip as she was highly recommended by my videographer, Ian Cruz of Ian Cruz Films. I instantly felt at ease with Ana when she did my trial make-up. She was on time for our 2AM call time on my wedding day! She is so amazing! She made me, my family, and my entourage look radiant and so very beautiful!
