Debi Mendez is a Qatar-based Filipina artist of her own right. Portrait painter at midnight, a professional (started to work in the makeup industry at the age of 16) celebrity makeup artist at day, musician by heart (founder of gothic/doom metal band Oremuz in 2004), cat lover in the afternoon, a poetry enthusiast at early mornings, and is also aware of her surroundings through nature or man-made.
Be not only this artist is passionate about craftsmanship, yet, is concern about her nationality as a "filipina", believes in: animal rights, the power of feminism in support to GABRIELA SILANG -- her sexual gender as a female in which she calls "femme fatalle complex", a "free-thinker" that opposes to principles of an individual to live with religion, values of respecting beings of different qualities, and is helping a friend raise awareness (is running an FOP-Awareness project for her friend Charis Ramirez( http:www.facebook.com/pages/Charis-FOP-Awareness) with any field of her art. For the sake of art, this page was created to entertain a viewer's eye.
Makeup Philosophia & the Mission:
Makeup is controversy. It doesn't have to be always inclined with beauty or glamour basics. Be it natural, avant-garde, theatre, character, or horror fx, it is "artistry". To be a certified makeup artist is not just a sudden form of choice, or a force by nature. It is not learned, but it is given. Yet, to enhance this talent, one must consider his awareness, patience, & experimentalism . Mastering the right elements of colour theory, and key products are a good primer for your makeup skills. The foundation of your artistry level are your brush tools, while your creativity, and your imagination helps you create a subject of varied emotions in your skin-canvass. Another form of painting, only applied on face.
IN MAKEUP, YOU CAN TIME TRAVEL. GO TO DIFFERENT WORLDS, ERA, & PLACES.
IN MAKEUP, WE TRUST.
