At this point it goes without saying: Bea Alonzo is a true icon. She’s limitless, empowered, and, despite the struggles, she’s living the quarantine life in full bloom.
Reminiscing her good old days, from when she was still falling in line to audition or getting a very quick cameo, Bea Alonzo has never stopped dreaming. In fact, for her, nothing will ever get in the way—not even a heartbreak and a pandemic—because where it matters, she still finds growth in her career and accomplishing more dreams. Truth be told, the pandemic has not been easy for everyone, even for a person as fortunate as her, but despite this, she makes sure that she’ll keep blossoming as a woman through sustained self-care and bright colors that will light up any room.
Career-wise, it is not only her shootings and tapings that stalled during the pandemic. As an entrepreneur who ventured into the café business way before quarantine, Bea’s Dean & Deluca franchise in Quezon City faced mishaps with the restrictions, just like any other in the food industry. Rest assured, the actress-slash-businesswoman-slash-philantrophist is geared up for any adversities now that she’s found a new partner that supports every woman in whatever dreams they go for.
An ode to living life in full bloom, Avon launched the newest Floral Wonderland matte lipstick collection, which easily defines the overall mood of Bea Alonzo. “This collection is a reminder to constantly nurture one’s dreams, because they are key to overcoming challenges and living life in full bloom,” shares Anna Fernandez-Llamas, Head of Avon Beauty. The new Floral Wonderland Collection comes in six dreamy floral shades where each embodies a nostalgic memory to Bea. All formulated in creamy-matte finish that feels soft on the lips, the collection ranges from warm nude classics to deep vivid tones. The mid-tone pink Floral Fuschia reminds Bea of her younger days. “Every time I go to auditions, I would always wear pink and you would never catch me wearing other colors,” she shares. Subdued yet striking, the Midnight Orchid exudes a very sultry and sophisticated aura.
In classic regal rose-burgundy, Ruby Rose Red conveys a very serious personality just as how Bea tested the water of adulting back then. And if there’s one role that reminds her of this shade, it certainly is Basha from her hit movie One More Chance. “During that moment when she was deprived of the chicken skin, of course metaphor lang ‘yung chicken skin. Metaphor ‘yun ng growth niya and how she wants to carve her own path until suddenly she chooses herself,” explains Bea. Describing it as the most confident color, the Nude Petals is a stripped neutral brown that sits well with any look.
While the Dainty Coral shade with hints of burnt apricot highlights Bea’s healthy everyday glow, the bright Red Poppy defines her uninterrupted self-discovery. This limited-edition release empowers two types of beauty junkies—the one who instantly blooms after wearing them and the dedicated Avon representatives who chase their dreams while they combine beauty and business. They are the prime example of an enterprising woman who actively nurtures her dreams, which you could easily find inspiration in or even live out the promise of, just like the indomitable woman with a beauty that the world will never tire of watching, wherever the blooms on her path lead her.
