Marj Sia


The Traveling Heels


To be honest, I'm an accidental blogger. I never meant or expected this to turn into a career...

About me and my blog

Marj Sia is a 20-something self-taught makeup artist and beauty junkie from the Philippines. She started her career back in 2005 as an accessory designer and did makeup as a hobby only until she got offers from couples, debutantes and big companies to do makeup for their shoots. She has worked with famous talents, celebrities and photographers.

She also does styling and brand consultation occasionally and also features fashion and lifestyle articles in her blog. Her name only appeared in the blogosphere back in 2011 but her career as a blogger immediately kicked off with thousands of readers and countless media features in a matter of months. Aside from her love for beauty & fashion, this woman is also an entrepreneur at heart. She is the owner of Catwalk Cosmetics & Wigs and holds makeup workshops every other month in cooperation with big makeup brands.

Her biggest inspiration is her mom, who influenced her love for makeup and fashion.
Marj is pure Chinese but her style is greatly influenced by Korean & Japanese fashion. She loves to explore; food, travel and learn different languages. She is currently attracted to anything with Leopard print and loves to collect high-heeled shoes. She has a fondness for animals especially for cute furry pets. And oh, she treats her baby Maltese Tiffy like a princess.

What inspired me to become a beauty blogger

To be honest, I’m an accidental blogger. I never meant or expected this to turn into a career but friends, family, co-bloggers, brands and readers inspired me to write more about beauty and fashion.

My all-time favorite beauty product

MAC’s Studio Fix powder. You can take everything away except for this powder!
