Hello! My name is Gretchen Gatan, and if you’ve stumbled upon this post, you must be interested to book a basic makeup workshop with me!
My Career Journey
Just to quickly introduce myself, I’ve been working in the beauty industry since 2013. First, as a Beauty Contributor for an online publication. Then, as a Marketing Manager of four beauty brands where I regularly conducted staff training and makeup workshops for the company. Part of my job was to teach the sales staff not just about the products but also how to use them and sell them to customers.
To further strengthen my makeup background, I studied Fashion Makeup at the Fashion Institute of the Philippines in 2015. Ind I continue to stay up-to-date with the latest beauty trends by writing for my beauty and lifestyle blog. I was also an Editor-in-Chief for an online beauty magazine from 2017 to 2020. Here, I produced cover stories featuring inspiring female celebrities including Janine Gutierrez, Jasmine Curtis-Smith, Gabbi Garcia, Iza Calzado, Carla Abellana, Andi Eigenmann, KC Concepcion, Kylie Verzosa, Bela Padilla, and more.
In 2021, I became the Managing Editor of a beauty publication that Unilever Philippines initiated. The platform focused on beauty and lifestyle-related stories while incorporating their skincare and personal care products.
Currently, aside from running my own publication and other side projects, I’m the Managing Editor of a parenting magazine under One Mega Group.
