Omar Ermita, Make Up Artist extraordinaire under Shu Uemura has making such a loud splash in the fashion industry and it is just impossible to ignore it. Not that you would want to. I mean if your face has been touched by him, then you may say that you have been OMAR-ified!
Unfortunately, he has done my make up only once but if I had 3 wishes, one of them is for Omar to do my make up every single day, even if I am just going to the grocery.
Ok, I am lying, I won't wish for that if I only had 3 wishes. But I will happily house Omar with me if he agrees to do my daily make up. I will feed him steak every single day.
At a young age of 36, Omar Ermita has done numerous covers for Manila's top glossies and fashion spreads.
If you must know, he didn't start out as a make up artist. He was first a rock climbing instructor! Imagine that!! When Marie Claire opened, he was asked to dab into the make up business and from there on, he found his true calling.

Candifier: How do you clean your brushes?

Candifier: Why do you love your job?

Candifier: When not doing make up, what is it that you do on your spare time?
