Antonio is a Makeup Artist based in both Los Angeles and New York City. Born and raised in a small town in the Philippines, he discovered his passion for painting and sketching at the very young age of 6. Growing up with his mom, he would always see her tinkering with makeup and watch intently at how simple hues and shades could transform someone into something more beautiful. Endless days like those inspired Antonio to pursue a career in Makeup.
Antonio moved to the United States at the age of 17 and attended Cinema Makeup School, a prestigious school for makeup and FX in Los Angeles, where he honed his skills and artistry. Since then, he started working with local celebrities in the Philippines for TV shows and events. He went back to the US in 2010 and had been working with designers for runway shows and catalogue shoots.
