When Celebrity Beauty Expert meets Miss Universe
by MJ Racadio
Los Angeles, California (September 05, 2018) When it comes to beauty there is one name who stands out, her name is Olivia Quido-Co also known as Ms. O, a celebrity beauty expert from Los Angeles, California. Her impressive lists of clientele include Pia Wurtzbach, (Miss Universe 2015), Ruffa Gutierrez, (Moviestar/Host/Model) and KC Concepcion (Actress, Singer/Model), Megan Young (Miss World 2013), Boy Abunda (Asia’s King of Talk) and so on. I had a chance to meet Ms. O in person during Summer Beauty Bonanza last July 20, 2018 in Daly City, California along with her brand ambassadors, Pia Wurtzbach and Daniel Matsunaga.

Getting-to-know the real Ms.O, recently interviewed via over the phone. Let’s find out.
MJ: Who is Ms. O as a person?
Ms. O: I’m a fun person, God fearing, I love people and passionate about making people look good.
MJ: What are your hobbies?
Ms. O: I love playing the piano, arts and crafts, actually that’s my favorite bonding-time with my daughter and I love watching concerts.
According to Ms. O, she plays the piano by ear and does not have not any formal training in music. “I listen to the music and then I play it right away.”
MJ: What inspired you to become a beauty-expert?
Ms. O– First, “I studied computer programming in De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde, Business Administration major in computer application. In addition, I designed the computer system of the business to become paperless. Since I arrived in States, wanted to follow my passion in facial because I love people and helping them to look beautiful.” Unfortunately, Ms. O realized that computer programming was not her passion.
Apart from her passion, running a spa was quite challenging especially in exceeding client’s expectation. For example, her clients stated “Ms. O I would like to look 10-15 years younger”. Ms. O said “I am blessed with a good team and it’s hard to find trained and experienced aesthetician and it would take a year or two in becoming an expert so I dedicate my time to train them” In a nutshell, once the team is ready he or she can do the O signature facial.”
Her advice to follow her footsteps, “if you like skin care so can follow your passion and do something to help many people. For example giving treatment, healing their acne and it boost their self-confidence and always put God’s first in everything that you do, so your plan will succeed.”
Ms. O– I want people to see my fun side. Usually, I’m very professional and love going out with my family and blessed with four beautiful children and a very nice husband. I want my clients to be my friends and I do not want just a client. I want them to be part of the family. I am so happy with my team and doing skin care for 15 years. I am very grateful to my clientele not only as client but good friendship.
