Journey of a Passionate Mommy Makeup Artist

Miles Fong

Every month MGI will feature Moms who we believe may serve as an inspiration for us all. These are moms who are passionate about their chosen field of specialization or profession. Our wish is for all Moms to be equipped and pursue their dreams just like the Moms that we will be featuring.

To kick off this year’s special feature on Mom’s, we will put into focus the life and works of Ms. Miles Fong, aka Mommy Miles to us at MGI.

Miles is a loving wife to Arnold and wonderful and caring mother to her three beautiful girls MM, CJ and Cassy. Despite her busy schedule, she is a hands-on Mom and takes care of her husband and children without the aid of a house help. Miles said that it’s been better for all of them since they tried to live on their own. She boldly says, “It’s just a matter of getting used to it and loving it!”

Her day starts with preparations for school for the girls. Her husband and her then take turns bringing each of them to their respective schools. Once this is done, they now attend to business matters and just makes sure that everything’s done before it’s time again to pick the kids up from school.

Mommy Miles even finds some time for Zumba at most three times a week in a nearby gym. According to her, it’s just a matter of prioritization and scheduling.

Ms. Miles, as she is fondly called in her industry, is the owner and Managing Director of Make-up One Philippines. They are known for their Bridal, Photo, Fashion and Kids make up and real beauty advice and treatment. They also provide themed-open photo shoots on a quarterly basis.

In fact, my children are frequent attendees of these photo shoots. The children have a blast dressing up for the photo shoot and having their make-up done by Ms. Miles and her team. After a week or two, we are given 5 professionally taken pictures of my children. Some of Make-Up One’s clients use these photos to build up their portfolio – especially those who are already in the field of modeling.

Miles earned her Basic and Advance Certificates as a make-up artist from School of Fashion and the Arts (SoFa). She further went on to La Salle College International for her International Artistic Make-up Certificate. She has attended both local and international workshops to further improve her craft. She was make-up artist for events such as the photo shoot for the Natasha Catalogue in August 2010, Coke ko ‘to commercial in May 2010, SoFa Fashion show in May 2010, Mega Young Designer Competition in July 2010 and MAC Philippine Artist MAC Counter Guest make up artist in April 2010, just to name a few.

Incidentally, Mommy Miles is also a jewelry/accessory designer. She makes one of a kind pieces that’s just so unbelievable gorgeous! I asked her what’s her philosophy in coming up with these gorgeous designs and she readily answers, “More is more!” She likes putting the best in everything she does. That’s the thing – her pieces are personalized and am so honored that she’s able to sneak in my orders just in time before the Chinese New Year!

I’ve asked her to kindly make bracelets for me that I can use for everyday purposes and one that I can use for special functions. These are the finished products my dear mommies! Gorgeous aren’t they? Mommy Miles prices are very reasonable for the kind of workmanship and material that she uses for these charm bracelets. Her stones are semi-precious stones that are sourced mostly from abroad. She will also teach you how to take care of them so they can last a lifetime!

We ask Mommy Miles how she is able to do all of these things. She simply smiles at us and says, “ Because I have a very supportive husband and children. I also love what I do. I just simply love my life!”

Indeed it was so much fun talking to Mommy Miles about her passions and her business.
