I admit, I am not really a good model of punctuality especially in school. As a working student and a nocturnal, I always stay up late and sometimes (if not most of the times), I wake up late so I have less time to prepare. Since I have experienced that countless times already, I have found ways and mastered how to do a quick and easy look perfect for any daytime occasions.
Usually, a little concealer, powder, eyebrow mascara, mascara, and lip stain are my life savers! BUT sometimes, if I have lesser time to prepare, powder, eyebrow mascara, and mascara are my best companions. However, there are times when a particular occasion requires you to be more made up. Since we don't always have the time to glam up fully, I have an easy solution for that --- SIMPLE EYE MAKEUP! It's amazing how a simple eye makeup can change your whole look. Here's a 1-minute eye makeup look that always saves my not-so-punctual arse! ;)
I like non-abrasive exfoliants because they are gentler on the skin and do the job well. I have tried a few gel exfoliants before and the best I have tried is the one from Glory of New York. Unfortunately, it's pricey for me and it's available from distributors only so you don't have an easy access with their products. That's sad because their products are really great! Anyway, it's a good thing that I have found an equally good gel exfoliant which is way more affordable --- iWhite Korea 2-Minute Whitening Miracle Gel.
Product Name: iWhite Korea 2 Minute Whitening Miracle
Price: Php24.50 / 8ml
Available at: Watsons, department stores
It's always so exciting to discover new products especially when they are good finds and worth the money and worth the try! One of the best things in being in a beauty community is that you discover new products almost all the time. One of the recent skin care and cosmetic brands that I've learned about is Sooper Beaute when they sent me a message on Instagram. I immediately checked out their products and they quickly caught my attention! The packaging is so colorful, girly, chic, and cute and they have a lot of products to offer from skin care to makeup!
I got the chance to try some of their best-sellers but let's talk first about their famous So Matte Lip and Cheek Therapies.
Last month, I had the privilege to do the makeup of the NU Lady Bulldogs for a photo shoot for Biogenic and work alongside fellow makeup artist and beauty blogger, Ms. Nikki Tiu of Askmewhats! It was such an honor and I want to thank Nikki for having me as part of the team. :) The hairstylist is the great Aeicy Cruz who did all of the girls' hair. Ang galing! I also met Mr. Mark Lao, the photographer for the Biogenic shoot. His works are all amazing and he is really nice, too! It's the first time that I worked with him.

You can never go wrong with using all natural products, that's what I love about them. They are Earth-friendly, very gentle and avoid irritation since they don't contain harsh chemicals, and they don't have any strange side effects. I've been seeing and hearing a lot about V&M Naturals from my good friend and fellow beauty blogger/vlogger, Shebby. Her testimonials about their products are all positive and the products look absolutely promising. However, I didn't really get the chance before to try them even though I wanted to because first, I still have tons of skin care products in my room waiting to be tested and reviewed, and second, I was saving my extra money for other stuff, especially for school. Dang it! College life, especially the senior year, is so expensive! And since I still have a lot of different skin care products that I can use, I didn't find the urge to buy new ones.
Anyway, continuing on with my story, I finally got the chance to test out their products when Shebby and Ms. Jamie, the owner of V&M Naturals, invited me to attend the opening of their HQ in Fairview.

Asia's Next Top Model is back!!! I'm so excited!!!
Following the successful runs of Asia’s Next Top Model for the past three years, the fourth season of the top-billing fashion reality TV show greets new aspiring top models and its viewers anew with a global makeup partnership that will make their dreams happen: Maybelline New York. As the world’s leading cosmetics brand available in over 100 countries, Maybelline New York brings its on-trend expertise and New York City edge to create the most daring and boldest beauty looks for the top models this cycle.
I have tried many skin care products from various brands ever since I started blogging. Most of them are whitening products. Since I'm already in my mid-20s, it is just time for me to start using anti-aging products. Yes, you should start using anti-aging products and start taking care of your skin as early as when you're just in your early 20s.
A few months ago, I got to be one of the selected beauty bloggers to have first dibs on Yves Rocher's Sérum Végétal Line. It is an anti-wrinkle innovation skin care line developed by Yves Rocher. This wrinkle and firmness skin care line's main ingredient is a powerful plant called Ice Plant. If you want to read more about the Sérum Végétal line's background, please click here.
To be honest, this post has long been overdue. In fact, I already emptied the products but I really want to share this to you since a lot of you are asking about the skin care products I use and also, these products are so awesome!
