I am Stifin Clae Pineda, a model and a beauty influencer from the Philippines. I graduated with a Mass Communication Major in Broadcasting and that adds to my confidence in expressing myself. I do love writing editorial pieces and stories. I also love fashion and makeup and expressing it on all of my social media accounts. I want to make other people, especially those in my same age to keep motivated on their dreams and to aspire them to keep on their track and to believe on their selves.
I am using all of my social media accounts as my platform to make people realize that we have to embrace the diversity and also to promote equality and acceptance that all of us has difference. To empower women is my main reason why I keep on expressing myself. I want to let women know their substance and get rid of what society has labeled women to be. I think we are the most powerful beings on the world and that we should be given every opportunity. And that’s what we should keep on our minds.
How long have you been a model and what do you love about modeling?
I started to be a model when I was 18, that was the time when I was crowned with the first runner up title on a pageant I joined. After that prestigious pageant, a lot of modelling offers came in and that’s when my modelling career started.
I enjoyed my modelling journey because I really loved expressing my inner side through photos. Striking a lot of poses, slaying all of the wardrobes, doing a lot of facial expressions and being more specific in every details including those smallest details on a photo.
Which is a memorable photo shoot experience you have had before that you can share with us?
It might be the photo shoot I collaborated with a popular resort. I enjoyed the theme of the photo shoot because of its fun colors and beach vibe. From the preparation of the shoot up to the end, the shoot team took care of us, that’s why I didn’t feel it to be exhausting. And I could say that I really had fun because of the beach vibe theme.
Is there any food or drink you can’t live without?
If there’s any food or drink that I can’t live without, maybe that is the donut and a milk tea.
I don’t know, but it’s really my comfort food. I can probably eat it for the rest of the month, hehe.
Do you have a beauty regime to look so gorgeous?
Honestly I’m not into skin care nor makeup. Especially on makeup, I’m not used to this because I tend to say “simplicity is beauty” and my definition of beauty before is that you don’t have to wear makeup, you don’t have to put a lot because for me, bare skin and having clear skin is the real definition of it. But when time goes by, I did appreciate doing my own makeup and mostly my skin care.
That there’s no perfect skin, our skin needs to be taken care of too because it’s not only having pretty make up on, but also having good skin underneath. And I just want to tell this to our young girls, that no matter what skin type you’re having right now, just always remember that God made you in His good way and you don’t have to be ashamed if you’re not having clear skin right now, because I believe that there is a right time for your glow up.
And this one is for those who put a lot of makeup on their skin, just continue enjoying what you’re up to. Just continue your way of expressing your beauty and confidence. Because we’re not putting makeup to impress everyone, it’s for us to gain more confidence and to feel gorgeous at all times. I got you girl!!
Have you been in an embarrassing situation before that is funny now when looking back?
The most embarrassing moment I can remember is when I forgot my wallet that was left in my room and I had been already dropped off by the car I booked.
Would you rather be able to taste colors or see smells?
I would rather able to taste colors, because I can see the beauty in it because when you can see smells, how is that going to happen?
