It was 2 years ago when Kelsey Merritt was telling us about her tales of a rising model in New York. And now, the Filipino-American model and student joins Liza Soberano and Georgina Wilson as the newest face of beauty powerhouse, Maybelline. The 21-year-old is without a doubt, one of the prettiest faces we’ve seen. So when we had the chance to chat for a few moments during the launch, we just had to ask about the beauty products she can’t leave the house without plus the beauty routine she never skips.
Read on below to find out:
What’s your holy grail makeup?
If there’s one thing I can’t leave my house without, it’s the Powder Matte lipsticks from Maybelline. I love it because it’s very lightweight, you don’t feel like you’re wearing anything, and it’s not drying at all. I especially love Touch of Nude because it’s the perfect nude that you can wear every single day. I also love the Dream Velvet foundation and the Falsies mascara. I used the mascara 5 years ago and I’ve been loyal to it ever since.

What Powder Matte lipstick shade would you put on at night?
Plum Perfection. It’s the perfect red and whenever you wear red, people’s attention just comes to you. It really makes me feel sexy and powerful.
Do you have any fail-proof beauty secrets?
I always, always moisturize. Aside from moisturizing my face, I also have to moisturize my lips to prime my lips before putting on lipstick.
How does it feel to be the newest Maybelline girl?
You know it’s really surreal. I come from Angeles, Pampanga and I didn’t know much about the fashion and beauty industry. I never thought I’d be here but now I am.
What do you think makes a Maybelline girl?
Confidence. Every Maybelline girl has come to a point where we made it happen.
