REVIEW: Rare Beauty Stay Vulnerable Melting Blush

Hi guys! I haven’t written a post here in a very long time, but I missed blogging and writing reviews, so here I am, writing about one of 2021’s most exciting blush releases: the Rare Beauty Stay Vulnerable Melting Blush. It launched in January, along with liquid eyeshadows and glossy lip balms, and it comes in five wearable shades. I have the shades Nearly Neutral, Nearly Berry, and Nearly Apricot. I also thought I would start writing about Rare Beauty products since they recently launched worldwide, including on! Read on to find out what I think about this cream blush.

All About My Eyeshadow Palettes

There’s nothing quite like playing with eyeshadows. I think they’re some of the most exciting things in a makeup collection and can help you achieve a bunch of different looks. Even a neutral palette can test your creativity! Since I’m a makeup artist, I have quite a few palettes (or at least, that’s how I justify buying them LOL), so I decided to film the eyeshadow tag! The tag was created by Samantha March and Allie Glines. It’s basically a bunch of questions about your eyeshadows, and you answer them on camera. This was super fun to film since I love talking about makeup. Watch it below!

How to Do Your Eye Makeup If You Have Hooded Eyelids

I had a really hard time figuring out how to apply eyeshadow when I was just starting out with makeup. No matter how many tutorials I watched, I couldn’t match my eye makeup to those of the beauty gurus. I soon realized that it’s because I have hooded eyelids (and a lot of the YouTubers I watched had almond eyes!). Eventually, I figured out how to apply my eyeshadow and eyeliner, but I know that it’s something a lot of people still struggle with, especially if they have eyes like mine. That’s why I filmed tutorial on how I apply makeup on my hooded eyelids. Watch it below!

I Started A YouTube Channel!

Hello, everyone! It’s been a long time since I’ve updated this blog, and since my last post, I’ve started working full-time as a copywriter/copyeditor at a publishing company here in Manila. I love my job, but it takes up a lot of my time, so I haven’t been able to write reviews and articles on my own site. But! I decided that I want to make time for pursuing some of my own passions, so I started a YouTube channel. You can expect lifestyle, beauty, and style content (and maybe even a few vlogs every now and then!). Watch my first ever video below. It’s a get-ready-with-me video where I do my makeup and talk a little bit about myself. Don’t forget to like and subscribe! ❤️

On Finishing Makeup School

My last day with Make-Up Designory was this past April 3, so this post is long overdue. We were given a break for the whole of February, and I was super excited to start class again because it felt like I was entering new territory. The Beauty Essentials class was great, but since I already had experience with doing other people’s makeup, I wanted more of a challenge and more learning opportunities. The Level 2 classes include Airbrush Makeup, Bridal Makeup, Studio Makeup, and High Fashion Makeup.

The Best Highlighter I’ve Ever Had

As you all must know, I have a penchant for highlighter. Last January, Anastasia Beverly Hills (one of my most favorite makeup brands) released a new highlighter in collaboration with Instagram beauty sensation Amra Olević, or Amrezy. The moment I saw its golden waves, I knew I had to have it. In this post, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on the Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Highlighter.

A Review of the Human Heart Nature Hydrating Creamy Wash

I remember a time when I would lather my face silly with soap-based cleansers, and then slap on some water-based oil-free moisturizer. Now that I know better, I make sure my skin gets as much hydration as possible. I moisturizer with oils like Sunflower Oil and Argan Oil, and I’ve swapped harsh cleansers for the Human Heart Nature Hydrating Creamy Wash. In this post, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on it.

This Lip Balm Saved My Lips

I don’t know what it is, but my skin has been feeling so dry lately. This feeling has extended to my lips, and I was surprised to find them feeling really flaky. That honestly never happens. I slathered my lips with the lip balms I already have, but to no avail. That’s when I decided to repurchase an old favorite of mine.

iSkin Aesthetic Lifestyle: First Impressions

My sister received two complimentary treatments with iSkin Aesthetic Lifestyle clinic, and she invited to me try them out with her. The treatments were a Diamond Peel and an Ultrasonic Face Contour (valued at Php3000). My skin was feeling pretty rough and congested, so a Diamond Peel sounded really good to me.

A Review of Benefit’s The POREfessional Pearl Primer

I remember when Benefit released their The POREfessional Primer; I was fairly new to makeup, and I wasn’t really sure what a primer was. Regardless, I received a sample of it when I purchased my first Benefit blushes, and I wasn’t too impressed. I found a lot of different alternatives that I liked better, but I couldn’t help feel excited when I learned that Benefit would be coming out with a PEARL primer. “Illuminating,” “radiant,” and “brightness” are buzzwords I’ve been falling for recently, and I was intrigued by the idea that something formulated to mattify could also brighten. As my mom restocked her Benefit mascara, I convinced her to get me the deluxe-sized Pearl Primer.
