Ana Patricia Victorino Mendoza or widely known as Ana Victorino on the internet is a self-taught freelance makeup artist and a student who just recently graduated here in CIIT, having her name and works featured in Manila Standard Today, under the Arts & Life section on October, 21, 2012 by Dinna Chan Vasquez. With creative hands that enable to transform a common face into something fresh and unique, she draws out the inner beauty of oneself as she continues on making everyone’s look into gorgeous works of art, showing off their one-of-a-kind appearance.
Although she was a computer graphics design student, she is also a popular makeup guru as she splurges herself through the world of YouTube. Having a total of only 23 videos with an enormous number of 687,183 views on them, this 19-year-old girl is just on her way of fulfilling her dreams while engaging to those makeup and beauty tutorial videos. Her skill emerges from her childhood through teenage years, being a beauty and fashion lover and inspired by her favorite YouTube makeup personalities like Pixiwoo, and KandeeJhonson. Since she uploaded her first video “Everyday Makeup Tutorial” on January 2012 which has reached almost 300,000 views, this urges her to be determined on doing several makeup videos.
The peculiar thing about her is that she is not relying too much on expensive makeup products as she doesn’t believe that these cosmetics are always the best. So, this girl hoping to work abroad as a professional makeup artist only starts from her dedication and persistence on working hard while studying in CIIT. Congratulations Pat Mendoza! Keep on inspiring youth!
