Ann Buenaobra Talks Supple Skin & Quieting Self-Doubt

“I love anything that forces me to stop self-doubt,” says Oakland-raised, Los Angeles-based model and beauty marketing professional Ann Buenaobra. “When I’m on set, I just think of it as a performance and a way to practice believing in myself.” 

Buenaobra’s journey to self-confidence didn’t happen overnight. Growing up in a Filipino-American household, “it always felt like there was a conflict between the way my culture was teaching me to perceive beauty and what the rest of the world wanted me to think,” says Buenaobra, who has modeled for brands including Topicals and Sol Body since landing her first gig with Benefit Cosmetics in 2019. “After a while, hating on yourself and waiting for outside approval gets tiring…I began to learn that if I’m breathing and present, that’s enough reason to love myself.”

Off set, Buenaobra channels her energy into content strategy and marketing with companies such as E.l.f. Cosmetics and The RealReal. “In all my roles, I've always had a personal mission to shift focus from product stories to people stories,” she says.  “We're more influenced by our peers and those like us than we are by brands. It's been really fun to see how the beauty industry is shifting towards community as well.”

These days, Buenaobra’s self-care practice consists of an abundance of positive affirmations, feel-good self-care, and more, which she shares below. 

“I’m inspired by people who embody love and kindness, and those who share that willingly.”

"I am in love with Rose Inc’s tinted serum. It goes on like skincare but has a beautiful coverage and finish."
