Clara Who?

Hello beauties! I’m Clara Marie Pettersen, a Filipino-Norwegian girl currently living in Manila. I work as a makeup artist, and I love seeing people experience a new part of themselves they’ve never seen before. I believe that when used properly, makeup can be a tool that allows us to be more of our true selves.

I love saving money and making cute things out of scratch if I can’t buy them. I am obsessed with everything that has to do with art and Japanese culture. Jazz infused hiphop is my language, and a late night drive (with no traffic) is my joy. I love film, photography, and self-help books; I count them as food for the soul. I am also dyslexic, but ironically, I love to write—about my thoughts, life, ideals, beauty methods, and everything in between.

I have a weekly column in The Philippine STAR on Wednesdays, where I talk about different makeup techniques Filipina women can use. This blog will not only cover beauty, but everything else I find inspirational and beautiful.

I also love talking to people, so if you’d like shoot me a email on any beauty topic, if you have any questions you’d like me to answer, or if you just want to say hi, I love saying hi too!
