If there is one thing Max Collins is sure of, it’s this: showbiz isn’t forever. Despite working in the industry for more than a decade, she has a good understanding of the fleeting nature of fame and has since prepared a long-term plan beyond her entertainment career.
“In showbiz, work is usually on a per-project basis. Sometimes you work non-stop, but other times you get long vacant days,” Max shares. “This is why I took up an entrepreneurship course – not only is it fun, but it also helped me discover a different interest outside showbiz.”
Knowing all too well how the entertainment industry works, the newest endorser of Ever Bilena Advance admits that she is careful when it comes to her career choices. “I think it’s important to have a business to secure your finances,” she advises.
Having experienced a period of uncertainty in her career as well as lull moments waiting for the next project, has prompted the actress to explore other ventures outside showbiz; this includes her home service waxing business and a beauty app which she will launch later in the year.
“I just finished doing a show on GMA – Someone to Watch Over Me –now I have enough time to focus on my other projects.” And with her workaholic personality, she adds, “I’m very hands-on with the details of my business, from the look and feel down to the admin work.”
Of course, being an actress and having beauty-centric businesses has also taught her to constantly look her best. “I’m the one who does my make-up when I don’t have a make-up artist on the set,” shares Max. “I usually prefer the natural look, so I always go for Ever Bilena Advance’s nude lipsticks, light blush, and contour to give my face a little color.” Meanwhile, her off-duty make-up is often fuss-free, opting for EB Advance’s Lip and Cheek Stain and EB Advance Liquid Concealer.
With fame being fleeting, Max keeps a good head on her shoulder by coming up with businesses that are not too far from her current field. And being the newest endorser of Ever Bilena Advance, she can only be grateful for the many lessons she has learned from the company. She opines, “Ever Bilena treats everyone like family, and for me it goes beyond just the product – it is a lifestyle. Ever Bilena’s products are staples in every Pinay’s kikay kit. And I hope to achieve the same legacy not only in my businesses but also in the entertainment industry.”
