OCTOBER FAVORITES!!! (2011)

4 comments

Today is the 30th of October, 2011. It seems just like yesterday when I blogged about my September favorites! Ang bilis! Before you know it, 2012 na! Ah anyway, let me share with you my favorites for the month of October. New favorites!

1. SHINE MOIST KERATIN TREATMENT

I love this hair treatment! The sales lady was right. You'll notice the effect with just one use. My hair was a mess before I bought this and now my hair is totally cooperating with me again! LOL. I use this 2-3 times a week. :)


2. DOVE GO FRESH CUCUMBER AND GREEN TEA SCENT ROLL-ON

I'm just super in love with its scent. I love the smell of cucumber next to peppermint. It's just so refreshing and the smell is so mild, unlike other roll-ons that have strong smell which is just so annoying to use. Dove deo roll-ons never fail me. It stays on for looooong hours.


3. L'OREAL GENTLE LIP AND EYE MAKE-UP REMOVER

I've tried four different makeup removers and this one beats the crap out of them! It thoroughly removes the makeup from my face, especially the eye makeup (eyeshadows, eyeliners, mascara, etc.) and it doesn't even hurt. Not even a little! I think I'm going to stick with this one or... I don't know. I'll still try other brands. Hahaha! It's a bit pricey for me.



During my lazy days, I skip foundation and just conceal imperfections then set it with powder. I also do this sometimes when I want my face to take a break and somehow breathe for a while. I have two favorite concealers which really satisfies me.

4. SAN SAN CONCEALER

I love San San cosmetics because they're very affordable but they actually have good qualities, well most of them at least. One of their products that I love is their concealer. The coverage is just amazing especially for the dark circles around my eyes. I'm in the shade Olive. I never leave home without this one. This is a permanent resident of my beauty pouch which I bring with me all the time, wherever I go.


5. L.A. GIRL PRO.CONCEAL HD.HIGH-DEFINITION CONCEALER

I'm sorry for the title but I just copied whatever's written from the tube. I loooove love love this concealer! I've always wanted a concealer which has a matte finish and I finally found one! :) I have the shades creamy beige and pure beige but I use pure beige the most because creamy beige is just too light for me. This concealer really hides my blemishes. Good coverage! Two thumbs up!


6. FANNY SERRANO TWO-WAY CAKE in RAJAH

I don't have much to say about this because all I can say it that it's a great powder for contouring! It's my favorite contouring powder. Very handy and convenient to use.


7. CARELINE OIL-CONTROL SINGLE BLUSH in PEACH GLOW

This is my go-to blush when I want a natural glow on my face. :)


8. MAYBELLINE MASCARAS (THEHYPERCURL and THEMAGNUM VOLUM' EXPRESS)

I love Maybelline mascaras (period)


9. FANNY SERRANO LONG-LAST WATERPROOF LIQUID EYELINER

This eyeliner pen has a really good quality. I've tried two other brands of eyeliner pens and I wasn't really amazed by their quality. This one takes home the trophy. It's really waterproof and it stays on for long hours.


10. MARIONNAUD N'9 BRUSH

This is such a big help in redefining my eyebrows. Like my San San concealer, this is also a permanent resident of my personal beauty kit.


11. LANDMARK MAKEUP BRUSHES

These makeup brushes really amused and surprised me! Their oh so soft! I highly recommend these brushes. Very affordable but with great, super great, qualities!


Now, for my favorite lip products for the month:


12. STYLI-STYLE FLAT LIP PENCIL in MARBELLA

This is my favorite to use when I want to sport red lips. :)

13. NYX ROUND LIPSTICK in MILAN

The color of this lipstick is like a dusty rose color but it looks natural on me. It's very pretty. It's like my everyday lipstick for the month of October.

13. MAYBELLINE BABY LIPS in REVITALIZING MENTHOL

It moisturizes my lips well and it's menthol! ;-)



So, that's it for my favorites for the month of October, 2011. I hope you enjoyed reading about my favorites. It has been such a great month for me. I hope it was for you, too. :)


Stay awesome my dear dudettes! :)

E-SESSION: GEM AND BRANDELL

Leave a Comment

It was my first time to participate in an e-session. Two months ago I was sent an e-mail by a Ms. Gemelyn Asuncion, asking if I can do her makeup for their prenuptial shoot. Of course, I agreed. It happened yesterday and I was very excited and very happy. They are very nice and very accommodating, as well. The photographer are super nice, too! The shoot took place in Picnic Grove, Tagaytay. Later in the afternoon, they moved to another location, People's Palace in the Sky to be exact. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to go with them to the second location because I have to hurry home (for some reasons). It's okay, I still had a good time. :)

She wanted just a light makeup and curls for her hair so that's what I did.

Here are some of the photos from yesterday's shoot:

The lovely couples:






The photographer was so nice to volunteer to take a picture of me with the lovely  couples. :)



I took a few shots while they're shooting. LOL.






I super love this one! <3



THE FAMOUS ZIPLINE!




Well, hello there, Taal! ;-)


Cable car



We met at 10:30 in the morning. We started at around 11:00AM then we parted our ways 
3:30 in the afternoon. Thanks to Gem and Brandell! It's just sad that I won't be able to do her makeup on their wedding day because they will get married in Nueva Vizcaya! Hahaha. Anyway, congratulations to the both of you! :)




Stay awesome my dear dudettes! :)

Hi everyone! I'm going to share with you my Blair Waldorf of Gossip Girl inspired makeup look. It's a very simple look that's great for the Fall season because of the Earth-toned colors. I did a video tutorial for this makeup look. I was actually about to attend worship service with my Dad and my boyfriend when I filmed this. I decided to wear this makeup look for church because it is very simple and very easy to do.

Watch the tutorial HERE.



I look nothing like Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester), not even close. So, please keep in mind that this is just an inspired makeup look. I didn't copy the makeup exactly because I don't even know the exact products she's wearing in the photo. :-)

Halloween Special: WOUNDED SHEWOLF

1 comment

Hello everyone! So, this is my Halloween makeup look for 2011. I thought about this for several days. I wanted something gore and I wanted something that is edgy and fierce as well. So, I thought, why not merge both ideas and create just one look. I ended up doing a Wounded Shewolf makeup look. I wanted to enhance more my prosthetic skills. Just a little bit of experimenting and more research.

I filmed a tutorial for this makeup look, by the way. Watch it HERE.
