In Focus: Get To Know Liza Soberano More Through The Eyes Of The People Closest To Her

While for the world, Liza Soberano is one of the most beautiful faces of 2016 (and 2015), whose beauty has "broken the internet" time and again, we also know that her beauty transcends physical appearance, what with the special attention she showers to her fans and her kind and gentle manner in dealing with people and life. She's also a generous soul, conducting outreach projects as much as she can; as a matter of fact, before her 19th birthday, she did charity work at the Chosen Children Village and San Lorenzo Ruiz Home for the Elderly last December 30, 2016.

As she enjoys Japan and a gift from onscreen partner and rumored boyfriend Enrique Gil that literally made her cry for her birthday, the people closest to her share so many other things we don't know about this face that can launch a thousand (even a million) anything. Check out their messages for the birthday girl:


1. From Mickey See, her makeup artist: "Working with the most beautiful face in Philippine Showbiz today is such a privilege, not just because of the many perks and blessings it brings, but because of the close relationship I have with this beauty. We laugh, we share personal stories, we tease, we even sort of argue at times. We have the right amount of respect for each other that transcends our professional (me, the makeup artist, she, the client) and personal (me the Ninong, she the goddaughter) connection. You are indeed God's given gift to everyone around you. I cannot thank you enough for being the impeccable breathing canvass to my otherwise lifeless palettes of colors. I wish you the best of life, now and always. Happy birthday Hopie @lizasoberano.



2. From Jay-ar Badajos, her style associate: "Happiest birthday to the one of the most beautiful girls in the world, the Universe rather Hindi ka nagbabago simula nung nakilala kita. Napakabait mo pa rin, kaya ka pinagpapala. Akala nila mahirap kang kausapin kasi nga pakaganda mo,di nila alam na baliw ka rin ahahaha. Lahat nang nagpapa-video greet sa'yo pinagbibigyan mo, kulang nalang papilahin mo at bigyan ng 'sangkilong bigas. Ngayon ikaw naman babatiin namin: Happy happy birthday Hopie! 'Wag kang magbabago ha...ganyan lang sakto lang para masaya lang @lizasoberano I love you baby girl, Mahal ka naming lahat!"
