I am Anna Ballenger, and I’m a Freelance Hair&Makeup Artist from Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental.
I am a mom (I became a mom at the age of 18). I have a 2 year old son with my ever supportive Fiance and we are pregnant with our second child and expecting her (yes, it’s a girl! :D) to pop on April.
Before I started my career as a freelance hair&makeup artist, I made sure that I had the knowledge of being a professional hair&makeup artist. So I took workshops from a Cebu City Hair&Makeup Artist, Ms Jessa Marie Horca. I completed her Makeup Artistry Workshop and continued taking her Airbrush Makeup Workshop and Basic Hairstyling.
I am a graduate of HD Makeup Studio&Academy in Ortigas, Metro Manila. I completed the HD Beauty&Fashion Makeup Course and Bridal&Fashion Hairstyling Course. Internationally-trained instructors, Sir Jeave Gabiana & Ms Stef Sing conducted the classes. The school’s tagline is “Learn from the finest” and indeed, I did learn from the finest school in the Philippines and I will surely continue learning from the finest and take their other courses.
I also took an intensive makeup course from Maquillage Professionnel in BGC, Taguig. I completed their Module 5: Bridal Makeup Course.
I am currently doing HD Traditional&Airbrush Makeup for Weddings, Debuts, Yearbook Pictorials, Graduations… in general, for all occasions that a Hair&Makeup Artist is needed.
I use professional high definition makeup such as RCMA, Kryolan, Graftobian & Kett Cosmetics and other high quality makeup brands such as MAC, Nars, Maybelline, Laura Mercier, and more.
