1. Noe (Philippines)
Noe’s love affair with makeup started when she was just a little kid, she used to play with her mother’s makeup bag and hair brushes and she’d spend an entire afternoon pretending to be a model while wearing her mom’s scarves and over sized shoes. That was the beginning of everything, during her high school days her passion for makeup continued to flourish all thanks to the many school plays she was part of. She realized then that applying makeup on herself or on other people made her feel good as it just came naturally for her. Her family saw it too and they encouraged her to practice and hone her skills. She used to just watch her makeup artist friends and asked them for techniques and then YouTube came along. It was because of YouTube that her love for makeup grew more. With a lot of hard work and patience she was able to develop a popular blog as well as her own channel in YouTube with thousands of subscribers from around the world. Every day she wakes up blessed to be where she is today, the future may be uncertain but rest assured her passion for makeup will never waver.

LaTeesha or Diva Doll Maldonado as many tend to know her as is a mother of 3, a wife and a working make-up artist.

She prides her channel on showing women how they can create beautiful looks while not breaking the bank doing so. LaTeesha is also the owner of “Diva Doll Flawless” where she believes everyone should “have a gorgeous day!” Jugging motherhood, being a wife, maintaining a clientele and now recently her very own makeup line has proven to be very challenging at times – however, it’s what she considers being the “Ultimate Domestic Diva.” The name of her Collection is “Domestic Diva” which was adopted from her own domestic lifestyle and her makeup line consists of 18+ highly pigmented loose eye shadows. She wants all women to know that it is possible to juggle being a mother and a wife while at the same time maintaining their own goals and aspirations as well as looking pretty flawless while doing so.
