About Me

Holding the baby in her arms, Mrs. Mendrez thought of a name that would embody everything she forsaw: beauty, love, prosperity and desire. Nothing else could come close, it had to be Venus. And embody she did. Since the time she learned how to put on her own clothes and shoes, Venus knew that there was something else in this wolrd that she could be good at and it had something to do with fashion, beauty, couture and of course, makeup. Who better to practice her skills on than her siblings and her very own mother. They were her worst critics and her best canvas. 

Fast forward to her twenties and the affecction for fashion, especially makup never faded. She pursued a make-up workshop at the popular Fashion Institute of Design and Arts. With her hard-earned and fervently-saved money, she enrolled in an in-depth course with a well known air brush makeup artist and once Rustan's Cebu makeup consultant, Jessie Glova. She gets inspiration from her makeup gods like Mario Dedivanovic (makeup artist of Kim Kardashian) and the  Pixiwoo Sisters who are famous makeup YouTubers in their own right.

People have now started to notice the style and emerging expertise of Venus. They have hired her for photoshoots, weddings, proms, and many more. And things can only get better with a little dose of patience, a little help from rabid fans and customers, a big shot of inspiration from family and friends and the ever constant guidance from above. Yep, she's on her way there. If your work becomes fun, it no longer is work. She says, "I believe in making your passion your profession"

Yes, the Roman gods would be proud to call her one of their own. And so would we.
