Faith Loses Her Faith

Driving in EDSA is such an experience, there are a lot of surprises on this highway that awaits you from traffic jam, accidents, j-walkers to MMDA encounters.  One thing I love though in driving at Highway 54 (EDSA’s old name), is looking at the colorful billboards.  I find it amusing to guess who the featured celebrity/model is.  A lot of billboards are also tastefully done.

Few weeks ago I have noticed one extra large poster landscaped billboard south bound lane of EDSA going to Camp Crame.   I really couldn’t believe this ad but it keeps on catching my eyes everytime I pass by Cubao going to Camp Crame.  Moreso, the said poster now in portrait print has been neatly tucked at the corner of Mandarin Oriental Hotel and it seems to be this one:

Billboard WTF

I have been haunted by this billboard, I almost tried taking a picture of the actual stuff but it’s difficult to park along EDSA not to mention the disgusting traffic.   Luckily her website has this image.  For the past days, looking at it from Cubao underpass, you’ll just notice her face full of eyes then everything else looks luminous until you see the purple and pink writings  “FAITH SINGS SINATRA”.  What the hell (WTH) happened to her face? 

 Faith Original

I have nothing against this talented singer but seeing the billboard in Camp Crame specifically,  makes me wonder was it:

  • The magic of Adobe Photoshop?
  • Product of a skillfull theater make-up artist or
  • Plastic Fantastic?

Definitely there is something wrong with the nose… the poster in EDSA makes it appear that only the nostrils exist and the big eyes.  I don’t know if the airbrush made it that ‘pointed’ but seeing articles on her recently concluded concert where Dr. Calayan was the ‘guest performer’,  could it be that she is now a certified plastic fantastic?  And the lips should suppose to look like that?  This time, I think the theater make up artist needs scolding.  

Maybe another picture will give a better image of Faith Cuneta but as for the ad above, I am — distracted.  In fact its very annoying, she looks nice originally.   Did Faith lose her name over her talent?
