“ She’s brilliant. She’s driven. And she’s determined to make her dreams come true through art. We got an opportunity to step inside the stylish life of Denise Heredia, blogger, entrepreneur and founder of Ombre Liptints.”
How did you get to where you are now?
I think passion & perseverance is what made me get to where I am now as an artist. With a combination of loving what I do, working for it, never stopping despite having days when you don’t feel like working, and prayers really help. Also, I never stop learning about my craft because I believe there is still so much to learn & improve on.
What’s the best advice you could give to the modern woman?
Don’t let anyone tell you or dictate to you what you can or can’t do - because you are capable of anything as long as you put your mind & soul into it. You are stronger & more capable of so many things you just have to believe that you are & you’re half way there.
What’s next for this woman?
I plan to really pursue my paintings & if God permits, have exhibits abroad & solo exhibits here in Manila. Also, I would like to venture into make-up and post make-up videos - so I can say that I paint faces & canvases.
The woman I look up to is...
My mom. She is the superwoman of my life. Without her, I wouldn’t be who I am today. She is the one who inspired me to do what I am doing today because she is very artistic herself. She can do almost everything & she guides me in life. One day I want to be as strong, dedicated, hard working & well-rounded just like her!
What’s your go to Susto piece? Why?
I think that would be their dresses & their unique tops because I can’t find it anywhere but in their store. I just really love the shape & how it flatters the body!
What does it mean to you to be a SUSTO woman?
To be a SUSTO woman is to be headstrong with all your decisions, to know what you really want in life & at the same time to have the right amount of self-love to be able to balance everything... all the aspects of your life.
