Paolo Ballesteros designs suman-inspired costume

As we all know, Paolo Ballesteros is the one who’s incredibly good at makeup transformations.

Like we won’t forget all the local and international celeb transformations he has created. He literally wowed us!

But now, we just discovered that Paolo is not only good with makeup because he just designed a costume for Binibining Pilipinas 2019 candidate, Honey Grace Cartasano! WOW! Can we just say that Paolo is definitely a true artist?

Multi-talented actor and makeup guru showed us some designing skills when Honey stepped on stage to strut his work at the National Costume Fashion Show last May 29 at the New Frontier Theatre.

Honey, who represents the province of Rizal, flaunt a costume inspired by Suman — sticky rice treat wrapped in banana leaves. As seen on Honey’s Instagram post, she stated in her caption, “Naalala ko sketch pa lang binigay mo pero sobrang namangha na kami. I’m grateful to you!”
