Are you a Filipino? Aside from Jollibee, you probably consider “Eat Bulaga,” the longest running noon time show in the Philippines, a part of your memories growing up. I do. And I follow them on Facebook.
And if you’re like me, you should’ve followed (cause it’s just in your newsfeed! Haha) Paolo Ballestero‘s journey to the #MakeUpTransformation stardom. It went viral and was picked up by international prints and websites including the Daily Mail in UK, Cosmopolitan Magazine and even MTV. It reached some celebrities that he copied like Tyra Banks and was shared even by Ashton Kutcher. Go on, Google his name and see the updates!
Curious, I searched Instagram to see if there are other #makeuptransformation hashtags created from other Asian countries and found very few. How about the Philippines? I guess Filipino netizens enjoyed it the most and Kathrine Bernardo, a Filipino actress, was the most popular subject.
Look what I found via the #makeuptransformationph hashtag:
1. The Alaska Fan– “Wala pa ring tatalo sa Alaska..”
2. Look for your favourite characters.
3. Family fun!
4. Favourite pet.
5. Now, Ted-dy for real.
6. And my friend turned into a man- donut.
7. I think it’s only in the Philippines.
8. Yes, the famous bee.
And to prove my nationality, I’ve given art direction and volunteered my photography skills for this one. LOL.
