HAIR and Make-up by AMABEL DANO offers an exciting and often illusory and romantic attractiveness. After all, beauty is something that every woman must take care of giving emphasis to our beauty is what this business is all about.
“The beauty in us should shine out; should be noticed; should be admired,” said makeup artist Amabel Dano.
Dano started young at 17 in her hometown of Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon. She first dabbled in YouTube to master her makeup craft.
When she reached 19, she ventured to Cagayan de Oro and began spreading her craft here. That was in 2013. A year after in September exactly, Amabel won as grand champion in the Ever Bilena Bridal Makeup Competition held at Centrio.
Then the rest is history. Amabel was hired as an instructor for fashion makeup at the Fashion Institute of the Philippines (FIP).
“Make up may deceive people but with HAIR AND MAKE UP BY AMABEL DANO, it accentuates your inner beauty- letting it spark and jive with your personality. I am driven to give transformations among my clients- to allow them wear the beauty they deserve (through make up) because this makes me the person I am today. I love make ups. I love to be beautiful. I love to be attractive. And I wanna let the people be a part of my endeavor. This passion that I have pushes me to go beyond my limits; to go
beyond the box-. I really love this passion- this allows me to make life beautiful and even make more beautiful,” she said.
So by August 2017, Amabel decided to hold a makeup workshop. And indeed it was realized last Sunday at Sanctuary Spa.
On that day, Amabel coached several women individually on how to manipulate correctly liquid foundation, primer, eyeliner, connector cream, moisturizer, cleanser, lipstick and concealer.
Amabel’s next plan is to teach more women not just in Cagayan de Oro but back to her hometown of Manolo Fortich the correct way of putting makeup. She can be reached through her Facebook page as well as her IG aamabeautiful and even through her cellphone number 09752660175.
Amabel caters weddings, debuts and other occasional makeup.
