What makes you Blush?
A lot of things make me Blush — when I’m shy, embarrassed, awkward! Flattering comments too!
What, to you, makes a woman beautiful?
I think what makes a woman beautiful is when she’s genuinely happy and when she doesn’t have to put a front up for anyone — being able to genuinely smile, laugh, and be herself.
How do you keep yourself looking as fresh as you do despite your long work hours?
I think the key to staying fresh is being happy and loving what you do. If you’re not happy with your life and with what you do, you won’t have the passion, the excitement, or that glint in your eye. These are the things that make me get up everyday and enjoy life!
What is your daily beauty routine?
I just take my make up off at the end of the day and put moisturizer!
(Wow! How lucky is she?)
What is your favorite beauty trend?
Red lipstick! (She says this without even batting a heavily mascara-ed eyelash!)
What are your top 5 go-to beauty products?
Red lipstick - any that suits me, cheek tint, bronzer, eyelash curler, mascara… That’s all I use, basically! Oh can I add? I forgot to add really nice face powder… although sometimes it isn’t necessary anymore!
Lastly, did you ever have any insecurities about yourself or your looks while growing up and how did you overcome them?
Yes, I did! My father would call me lubra-lips! I grew up thinking it was bad to have big lips! Then I saw Liv Tyler and Angelina Jolie, so okay na ako doon! Happy na ako sa lips ko! That was really it. If these beautiful women, these Hollywood stars, are comfortable, then I should be too! Their lips are the hottest thing about them, then mine too! Also, as I grew older, my dad finally stopped teasing me about it!
Now that’s Anne Curtis for you! Despite all the fame and fans (oh, even celebrities alike) fawning over her, she’s still as normal as normal gets. How can you not love that?
