She’s funny, bubbly, and genuine. But it is no secret that before Alex Gonzaga reached her star status today, she went through tough situations in life and she bravely and silently conquered it all.
That’s why it is no surprise that netizens are loving her, gaining more than 13,000,000 subscribers in her YouTube channel. And today, Sept. 19, 2022, she adds another achievement under her belt as she’s named as the newest ambassador of the proudly Pinoy beauty line—Ever Bilena.
In a conversation with MB Life, Alex opens up about her journey toward loving and accepting her own skin. She admits that just like everyone else, she has her own insecurities and it took time for her to overcome those.
“It’a process and a long journey. Until now, even when you reached your 30s, you will still encounter those insecurities, those moments when you feel you’re not enough, you’re not beautiful kasi nga it’s a constant battle,” she says. “It’s a constant decision to choose yourself , to choose to be confident, to choose to accept yourself.”
Shen then gives an important reminders for the youth. “Right now that you’re young, laging nyong tatandaan na if you don’t like your look right now, don’t worry. You have so much years ahead of you, pwede mong i-enchance ‘yan, magbabago pa ‘yan, so don’t worry,” Alex says. “You can always so something about it. Just make sure na yung core mo as a person, you know who you are and you value yourself not because of your outside look, but because of what you can be as a person.”
Her positive outlook in life and her perspective about beauty are one of the reasons she was chosen as the newest face of the 39 year-old company. “She’s very fun, she’s very natural, she’s very kind,” Denice Sy of Ever Bilena tells MB Life. “She’s easy to get along with and she keeps you entertained…and I think that’s probably the reason why she’s so loved by so many because she’s just naturally charming and has a very good charisma.”
Some of Alex’ fave EB products are the lip and cheek tint, matte lipsticks, and the eyeliner.
