Meet Luis Vecina, an upcoming, MAC certified Makeup artist from Manila, Philippines.

Learning about an individual's journey to becoming a professional makeup artist starts with a few simple steps.


Luis Vecina | Wedding, Debut & Prenup Makeup Packages

Her ability to create awesome debut looks.

Here you can find a collection of final portrait shots of my clients. As a freelance makeup artist Manila, I'm also able to provide airbrush makeup by Dinair. Some are visitors from abroad getting ready to attend gala awards, while others are looking for the perfect professional look for a work party or evening out in Manila. The same care and attention is applied here as I achieve a daily look that best reflects the tone, face shape and final look desired by the customer. These looks can range from light, delicate colours for a clean minimal look, through to richer shades and styles for a one time look that lasts in the memory of the client! I work from a mobile setup with a professional lighting rig setup, allowing me to meet the client at their convenience, in the popular areas of Quezon, Makati and Pasig and beyond.

Working as a bridal makeup artist, clients demand the very best for their big day. The same applies to corporate events I cater to and so it is important to use only the best makeup products available today. Having worked for several years at MAC cosmetics, I am fully able to advise and apply the right products, using my extensive product knowledge to create a beautiful final look. Most importantly, I only use the highest quality products. These include MAC cosmetics, L’oreal, RCMA, NARS, Laura Mercier and Dinair to name a few. The professional makeup products used are reflected in my rates and any makeup artist will tell you the high value they place on only using the best products available! I personally rate Dinair airbrush HD makeup very highly to give a flawless look, that you will remember and enjoy on your day! I am available for all seasonal occasions too, should it be a Christmas party, Halloween makeup or even cosplay makeup that has become increasingly popular at expo events in Manila.

Luis Vecina | Beauty Pageant & Miss Mandaluyong Makeup

Her incredible award winning pageant makeup looks

Makeup for pageantry requires a bold look, only the best will do for competition! I have had the joy of working on the Miss NCAA Pageant with different clients over the years. These stunning ladies need striking looks that reflect their individual personalities, dress changes and also, any national or regional costumes. The strong lighting during competitions allows for rich, contrasting makeup that dazzles on the catwalk! A professional makeup artist knows that pageants are not merely about looks, but that the story of each competitor’s personality can be conveyed to the judges and audience in a natural way, that highlights their features and tells the story of the person behind the makeup. Pageants allow a makeup artist to experiment with colours and techniques that might not be used daily to achieve award winning looks! - Photos: Jan Dizon

The Philippines is well known for beauty pageants. Many of our contestants have gone on to win Miss Universe, such as our own Pia Wurtzbach in 2015, as well as stars in international and domestic competitions such as Maxine Medina and Ariella Arida. Manila has hosted many competitions in the past and there is a strong presence at local events too across our islands. In more recent years the LGBT community has featured with Super Sireyna hosted on the popular day time TV show Eat Bulaga as well as Mr Gay World Philippines, where the appreciation of the beauty of contestants, has transcended gender and sexuality in the Philippines, as one of Asia’s most LGBT tolerant societies. I enjoy working at pageants, with the opportunities they bring to meet people from all walks of life. The best makeup artists understand each contestant and the looks they will need, from traditional dress, to evening wear and on to swimwear events. I can attend events across Luzon and further with prior arrangement to help you dazzle during your competition!

Luis Vecina | Professional Fashion & Editorial Makeup Photos

Creating on-trend fashionable looks for magazines, editorials and TV.

Makeup for fashion clients can vary from editorial shoots, PR, TV and video through to creating looks for professional models and the all-important debut/deutante. A professional hair and makeup artist in Manila is at the height of on trend makeup here, fashion styles and trends move fast and clients demand the best in the world of Instagram and Facebook. I work to bring out the best look with each client occasionally as a Debut makeup artist, often providing two or three looks when working on a client that is creating a modelling portfolio. This requires a sharp eye and ready hand to move quickly between looks from a professional makeup artist, and I am always on set to provide this with changing lighting, moods and scenes to provide beautiful makeup, no matter the occasion! - Photos: Eman Ariola and Peter Cons

I have been fortunate enough to work on set with Maine Mendoza as an additional assistant, as well as attending MAC cosmetics workshops with celebrity makeup artists such as Jake Galvez from Becky Nights. It is always a joy to work with catwalk models and stars that helps provide a valuable insight into makeup trends that would otherwise be read in Vogue or Cosmopolitan . A quality makeup artist will learn from the above experiences when working with photographers and videographers at prenuptial photo shoots as well as during wedding videos, to help create makeup looks that capture perfectly on camera. A professional makeup artist will work with a camera team at wedding venues to bring out the right tones, colours and warmth to any makeup look desired. Whether working as an assistant, or providing a full hair and makeup service, I can work with you across Manila and the Philippines. Please browse my website to learn about the different makeup looks I have created over the years.
