I’ve been friends with Maita since we’re kids; we’re batchmates in School of the Holy Spirit and in Ateneo. She can easily be the token girl we all love to hate in high school who seem to have it all– exceptionally beautiful, smart, talented, and creative. Except that with Maita you simply can’t, because she’s also extremely sweet, genuine, down to earth, and kind-hearted. Love to hate her? Nope. We love her. Period.
The first few times I did Abu’s makeup was way back 2007. I was just studying basic makeup artistry then in Center for Aesthetic Studies and she was one of my ever willing guinea pig-slash-model during classes. I really have a soft spot for my supportive friends who have helped me start out. To make her even more awesome in my eyes, Abu and his husband Bede brought me to Korea for their engagement shoot!
