The 8 Filipina Beauty Influencers You Should Know

Published

on

How did you get started in your career, and what has been the most meaningful part of being such a key player in your field? 

It was no secret that there were not any women or girls who looked like me in the pages of the magazines that I read, the movies I watched, or even the music I listened to. I really wanted to pursue editorial not only because I loved writing and storytelling but also because I wanted to create content for girls who looked just like me. 

I majored in communications and professional writing and editing at UCSB and applied for as many writing internships as I could during my time in college. After graduation, I got my first real job as the digital editor at Tiger Beat magazine. The job taught me so much about working in the editorial world, from coming up with story ideas to interviewing celebrities. From there, I worked at another media company and then landed the job of west coast fashion and beauty editor at Bustle, a position I held for seven years.

Now, I’m a freelance editor and consultant, as well as the co-host of a beauty podcast called Gloss Angeles. Only recently did I realize that I was actually doing what I had always set out to do—to create content for every kind of young woman (including those who look just like me) and to find ways to encourage them to find their own beauty. It is an honor and privilege, and I am so grateful that I get to call it my job!  

Since it is Asian Pacific Heritage Month, who do you admire the most in the Asian American beauty space and why? 

I have so much admiration for Michelle Lee, Allure‘s editor in chief. Not only is she responsible for turning Allure into the must-read beauty publication it is today, but she has also created a space that celebrates diversity and features people from all walks of life. She also does so much for the Asian American community. 

Lastly, what beauty product have you been loving? 

To stay on the theme of Asian Americans, I’d have to pick Orcé Cosmetics’ foundation. It’s a beauty brand started by a woman named Yu-Chen Shih, who wanted to create a foundation specifically for Asian complexions. I love it!

Victoria Beckham‘s kitchen became her home office on Wednesday, as she worked on her latest fashion collection at her house in the Cotswolds. The former Spice Girls star, who is isolating at her second home with her husband David and their children Romeo, Cruz and Harper, shared a look at her relatable work setup on Instagram – and became the envy of her fans in the process.

“My warm weather working from home wardrobe! Shorts & slippers. The dream,” Victoria captioned the photo, which shows her perched at her kitchen island on a wooden stool while wearing a pair of tiny denim shorts and a sweatshirt.

While many followers were envious of Victoria’s toned legs, others couldn’t resist commenting on her gorgeous kitchen. “House goals! The stone flooring is amazing!” one wrote, while a second agreed: “Dream house.”

It definitely does appear like a dreamy kitchen setup, with stone flooring, exposed brick walls and a bottle green wooden island unit. Copper saucepans hang overhead, while a chandelier adds the ultimate luxurious finishing touch.

A previous photo shared by Victoria has revealed another glimpse at the room, showing a large wood-fired pizza oven on one side, with chopped logs stacked underneath ready to cook. The aesthetic of the room ties in with the rustic feel throughout the rest of the house, which is a barn conversion located close to the celebrity haunt of Soho Farmhouse.

The property boasts beautiful gardens too, where the family can also enjoy barbecues together in the summer, play tennis on their own tennis court, and unwind in their log cabin that houses a sauna and steam room. There is even a plunge pool on the lawn to cool down afterwards. What more could they want?!
