In Focus: Chalk BYM Alumnus Maqui Castelo On How He Found Confidence With Blackwater BB Cream


Ever since its inception in 2006, Chalk Bright Young Manila has been one of the platforms to find outstanding individuals hailing from different campuses around the Metro. And we are proud to say that a handful of our BYM alumni have actually become successful at their chosen paths since joining our competition.

One of them is Maqui Castelo, who, after emerging as the 2015 Grand Male Winner, has ventured into filmmaking and video production and is now the co-founder of Limitless Productions. As we catch up with this 23-year-old film maven, he took us back to his BYM journey which became an opportunity for him to go out of his comfort zone, meet equally talented individuals, and discover his full potential.

Part of finding the best version of himself through BYM was refining his sense of confidence. “My definition of confidence is not giving too much importance on what people say, rather being completely secure in who you are as an individual,” he says. 

It’s true that confidence comes from within. But, of course, it doesn’t hurt to take care of one’s physical well being for that extra boost. For Maqui, the key to feeling confident on the outside is having a simple yet solid set of skincare essentials. His must-have products are cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen. Aside from these, Maqui just added a new holy grail item into his routine which is none other than Blackwater’s BB Cream For Men!

While some guys may veer away from any sort of makeup, Maqui knows that a little coverage can go a long way in terms of making himself presentable. Being in the film industry while running his own business, Maqui makes sure that he always looks his best especially when it’s inevitable in his job to meet different kinds of people on a daily basis. 

Evidently, Maqui continuously lives up to Chalk’s brand of talented and strong-willed individuals. Armed with his creativity, confidence, and purpose, he’s here to inspire every BYM hopeful to take a leap of faith and believe in their own capacities. What’s there to lose, right?

Take your grooming to the next level with Blackwater’s BB Cream formulated for men. This BB Cream has a natural coverage that helps out with minimizing the appearance of blemishes and uneven skin tone. Its lightweight matte finish keeps you shine-free for hours. 

Blackwater BB Cream For Men is now available in all leading supermarkets, department stores, Lazada, and Shopee
