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 … More On Finishing Makeup School
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 … More The Best Highlighter I’ve Ever Had
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 … More This Lip Balm Saved My Lips
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. We went to … More iSkin Aesthetic Lifestyle: First Impressions
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 … More A Review of Benefit’s The POREfessional Pearl Primer
Like many Filipinas, I too occasionally suffer from an oily and congested scalp. I’ve never tried clarifying shampoos; I’m afraid they’ll strip my hair too much, but it’s all good because I have my handy-dandy Rinsing Vinegar from Yves Rocher. In this post, I’ll explain what a Rinsing Vinegar is, how I use it, and … More A Review of the Yves Rocher Rinsing Vinegar
Brow powder is pretty much my eyebrow product of choice. I prefer it over pencils and pomades. Even when I do other people’s makeup, I draw them and fill them in using powders. With that said, I’m super picky about the brow powder I use. A lot of the brow products in the market come … More A Review of the Benefit Foolproof Eyebrow Powder
Last week, I finished the Beauty Essentials course at MUD Studio Manila. As I mentioned in my post about going to makeup school, the Beauty Essentials class in an introductory course to beauty and corrective makeup, and it’s a prerequisite for the Level 2 courses that I’ll be taking in March. My batch had only … More Beauty Essentials Class DONE!
Happy New Year! I must say I’m very excited for 2018 because I’ll finally be going to makeup school! I’ve been a freelance makeup artist for quite some time, and being self-taught is nothing to be ashamed of (it’s impressive even!), but I recognize that I still have so much more to learn, especially if … More I’m Going to Makeup School!
Despite my enormous collection of lipsticks, I always like to try new ones. Enter Slay Colors. They’re a Philippine-made indie cosmetics brand that caters to strong, fearless women. They’re fairly new to the beauty scene, but that doesn’t stop them from empowering independent Filipinas by creating bold, high-quality lipsticks for them. I have the shades … More A Review of the Slay Colors Lipsticks
