22 Mar MAKEUP ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: LEI PONCE
How did you start?
T’was just a hobby at first since my priority is my corporate responsibility as a financial analyst. I don’t have any idea how to use makeup but I’m amazed how women spends so much time with them that’s why i tried joining a personal makeup course. I accidentally fell in love and the story of my journey as a makeup artist began.
Where do you buy your makeup?
I buy my makeup depending on where they originally from because I can get it at a cheaper cost, thanks to my flight attendant friends. Sometimes I myself travel to buy my makeup supplies. E.g for falsies, I go to Thailand and good thing Sephora is already there so no need to go to U.S. to buy my other arsenals, (hitting two birds in one stone).
Top 5 Must-haves in your kit?
Mufe Skin and Lip Booster (holy grail for skin prep)
Mufe Pro Sculpt palette (blush and contour can be used as an eyeshadow as well and it comes with a highlighter. Just set it with any powder for staying power ), (blush can be used for lips too!)
RMK gel foundation (no need to set with powder)
Maybelline Magnum Mascara (almost everyone loves it)
Enfant baby powder (it sets makeup and refreshes my skin)
Cleanse, tone, moisturize
Apply Mufe skin booster and lip booster to lock-in moisture
Mufe smoothing primer on T-zone
Favorite makeup brands and why?
Make Up For Ever (For Pros, For You, For Everyone!)
RMK (giving you a real 2nd skin finish and its good over finished makeup too!)
Becca (they perfected the highlighter!)
Kpalette (they have the best eyebrow product in the market)
Nars (who doesn’t love Nars?)
Maris Racal, Tweetie De Leon, Maine Mendoza, Alice Dixson, The Elizaldes, Miho Nishida to name a few
Secrets you wouldn’t share with others?
(This wouldn’t be a secret no more) MUFE mist and fix is a perfect makeup primer and makeup fixer
Who would you love to put makeup on?
I love to put makeup on people who doesnt wear makeup and feel ugly about themselves. I want my makeup to boost their self confidence telling them they are beautiful because beauty knows no race, gender, color, sex or even status in life.
How do you keep up with new trends?
Because we are in the digital era, access to trends is like a walk in the park. You just need to know which websites are reliable.
What are the techniques from the past that you cannot live without?
Prioritize Skin Care . Nothing beats a nice skin.
