Stuck Dubai-based ‘international make-up artist’ in Philippines makes the most of lockdown


Filipino make-up artist Ramie Seron has been stuck in the Philippines due to the travel restrictions imposed by airports and airlines as a precautionary measure against the spread of Covid-19, but this didn’t hinder him to reach out to his constituents who are severely impacted by the economic effect of the virus.

Seron, known as ‘international make-up artist’ and ‘queen maker of the UAE’, went to the Paniqui, Tarlac in Philippines to spend time with his family in March and since UAE airports closed its runway on April, he had no choice but to prolong his stay in his home country.

As ‘Bayanihan’ rekindles almost everywhere today, the make-up artist helped his neighbors through distributing grocery packs and essentials and feeding program for children.

“Through the help of y friends, I was able to reach out to my neighbors here in Paniqui and somehow help with this simple act of kindness. I’ve seen that some of them are not qualified of the cash assistance being given by the national government,” Seron said.

He added that his friends are always with him to assist him from packing the goods to distributing it.

Following the strict protocols on social distancing, Seron and his team are able to go to far-flung areas and help the neediest ones.

“The smile on their faces are just so heart-melting. Distributing these grocery items is enough to exhaust the team, but it all fades out when you them smiling and giving you a sincere ‘thank you,’ he added.

Seron is planning to go back to Dubai ‘once normalcy is restored’.
