Mark Jasper Amorin: His magical touch
CEBU CITY, Philippines — You will prick up your ears when you hear Mark Jasper Amorin’s name.
He is a blogger, makeup artist, traveler, and a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) all rolled into one.
This 23-year-old Korean-looking cutie from Hilongos, Leyte has been in the makeup industry for six years.
He is the man behind the transformations of local artists in Cebu, and to name one is social media darling Snake Princess or Mark Anthony Abucejo in real life.
Others might not appreciate the importance of a makeup, but Jasper explained on a Friday evening with CDN Play! how it makes one’s day.
“It (make up) adds confidence. In the corporate world, many are already advised to put at least light makeup to look more presentable,” he said.
With his expertise in this field, it is time to know more about his journey and future plans.
1. Question: How does it make you feel that you have thousands of followers?

I did her make up without experience. I had to do it because wala na’y choice and all was paid.

7. How about putting your own makeup academy or a makeup line?
I also have a plan to put up my own business. I have a plan to release a lip tint soon. There will be three shades.
I want to produce my own makeup line and makeup brand.
And then actually, we started doing makeup workshops. The recent was last April we call it “Amorin-Pantallon Make Up Master Class.”
There were at least 20 enrollees. That was the start, and many enthusiasts want more sessions.
We are planning to hold more sessions in Bisaya speaking places.
8. Question: Just in case, you are not a makeup artist right now, what will be your career?
Jasper: I think I will still be in public audit because it is something that I worked hard for five years. I also like that job.
9. You also love to travel. What is your most favorite country?
Jasper: Korea on winter season. In Korea, I experienced to wear a leather jacket with fur, and it was really cold.
I love the places. The people in Korea are more like Filipinos. They are so accommodating. When you ask, they answer.
10. What is your dream destination?
I want the United States of America (USA). I want to go to the USA first because I want to live and work there. I want to gain more opportunities there./dbs
