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 IContinue reading “All About My Eyeshadow Palettes”

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 YouTubersContinue reading “How to Do Your Eye Makeup If You Have Hooded Eyelids”

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 onContinue reading “I Started A YouTube Channel!”

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, butContinue reading “A Review of Benefit’s The POREfessional Pearl Primer”

A Review of the Benefit Foolproof Eyebrow Powder

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 comeContinue reading “A Review of the Benefit Foolproof Eyebrow Powder”

A Review of the Slay Colors Lipsticks

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 shadesContinue reading “A Review of the Slay Colors Lipsticks”

Ganda for All: A Review of the Vice Cosmetics Good Vibes Lipsticks

With celebrities like the Kardashians/Jenners and Rihanna launching their own makeup lines, it was only a matter of time before Filipino stars started their own beauty lines as well.

The Zulu Eye Shadow Palette by Juvia’s Place

I have way too many eye shadow palettes as it is, but that didn’t stop me from acquiring The Zulu Eye Shadow Palette by Juvia’s Place. I was debating on whether to get this or the mini Masquerade Palette (also by Juvia’s Place), and I ultimately decided on The Zulu because, while the Masquerade PaletteContinue reading “The Zulu Eye Shadow Palette by Juvia’s Place”

Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation

Rihanna has changed the game with the recent launch of her new makeup line, Fenty Beauty. She’s come out with highlighters, brushes, and contour sticks, but I think the pièce de résistance of her new line is the Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation. Being new to the makeup game didn’t stop RiRi from launching 40Continue reading “Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation”

How to Color Correct

Sometimes, foundation and concealer just don’t cut it, and you need a little extra something to hide your dark circles, acne, and sallow complexion. While color correcting is by no means necessary, it’s a great way to create a perfect, flawless canvas when you have a photo shoot or an event to go to. So,Continue reading “How to Color Correct”
