|Marian Rivera : Ethereal Beauty|
BY JENNY TEVES
Just over two years in show business and Marian Rivera has conquered television, done her share of movies and a slew of endorsement contracts that has her face on just about every billboard on EDSA and C5. What makes this Spanish mestiza beauty so in demand are her dark tresses that bring out her classic features which, says make-up artist Bambbi Fuentes, can morph into just about any look.
gShefs a chameleon. Change the color of her eye shadow,
and her face immediately changes. Shefs a make-up artistfs dream,h says
Bambi who met Marian when she was just starting out in show business.
One look at Marian and Bambi immediately knew she was the face for his
The hair and make-up preparations for this photo shoot are short and painless, thanks to Marianfs flawless skin. Despite the sun and late nights taping for her Dyesebel series, Marian has kept her skin healthy and glowing. She attributes this to a simple regimen of cleansing, toning and moisturizing with the Maxi Peel line of skincare which she does diligently. Her busy lifestyle doesnft allow her many rituals and Marian wants to keep things as simple as possible.
Her hair, kept in its natural jet black color, stays
healthy with a regular shampoo and conditioner routine with nothing less
than Sunsilk. Her face is make-up free except for a light touch of powder
on days when she is off camera. But, like any other girl, she indulges
in the occasional shopping trip for shoes and bags to relax and unwind.
Perhaps this is Marianfs secret to her meteoric rise: staying true to her priorities, simple indulgences and keeping herself grounded with strong family ties.
As the shoot starts, she dresses in Eric De Los Santosfs
sophisticated bridal creations as the ethereal bride that has descended
from the heavens. She floats across the studio in couture gowns richly
textured with embroidered and studded appliques, silver satin ribbons
clinging on tulle, embellished with rhinestones.
