To be honest with you, I didn't know that Burt's Bees has a very wider range of products in the market. I always thought they only have lip balms and hand moisturizers so I was really surprised (and embarrassed) when I saw their other products which are, by the way, all natural!

Burt's Bees first ever product is their very famous lip balm and as what they say, that tiny tin can made an entire company. Oh, and did you know that Burt, that old man that you have probably seen on some of the brand's packaging, is a real man? And yes, he's still alive! Burt Shavitz, 79 years old, recently hailed as "the world's most famous retired beekeeper by the New York Times. Despite of Burt's Bees success and his fame, he still managed to keep his hippie and humble lifestyle.

Watch this trailer to know more about the amazing and bearded Mr. Burt Shavitz. :)

Product Review: Myra VitaGlow BB Cream

BB Creams everywhere! It seems like almost all of the skin care and cosmetic brands are already coming up with their own BB creams. Myra, a well-known skin care and health brand, also released one called the VitaGlow BB Cream. I was able to try out their BB cream when I got a gift from the company which even came with a customized brush set.

Event Show for a Cause: Handog Para Kay Juan at Juana

On the first day of August this year, we participated to an event show for a cause organized by Royal Myrh Talents and Entertainment Services which is owned and managed by Jessy Mendiola's family. I was invited by Mr. Sam Atun, partner of Royal Myrh, to be one of the official makeup artists along with my sister, Misty a.k.a. Queen B., and my good friend and fellow YouTube beauty guru, Joyce Sola.

I was able to meet new people and I actually had a nice chat with Meg Mendiola, the youngest sister of Jessy Mendiola. I also got to do their makeups except for Jessy because I believe she was really busy. She actually came in late and left as soon as her performance ended. I didn't even get to take a photo with her. :(

Anyway, we were assisted by my friend, Daisy and also by Ms. Josie who was a participant of my first Blend It! Makeup Workshop! :)

Here are Meg, Pam, and the talents of Royal Myrh that I glammed up:

I also groomed three male talents of Royal Myrh.

Of course, we stayed at the event to watch the show. Joyce, Daisy, and Ate Josie didn't finish it though but my sister and I decided to stay until it's over. Here are a few snapshots:

Sir Rex Kantatero and Pakito Jones of 93.9 iFM performing their epic parody songs! We actually enjoyed!

Before we left, we took a photo with Pam Mendiola and their Mom. :)

It was a tiring but great day, knowing that we were able to help Filipino children who are less fortunate. The proceeds of this event were donated to Payatas Elementary children and Kinilian Feeding Program. Thanks for having us, Royal Myrh! More power to you, guys. :)

Stay awesome and accomplish your mission!

Blue Smokey Eyes

I have a lot of different eye shadows from different brands in my makeup collection that I already forget to use some of them. Most of them have really good quality that's why as much as possible, I try to use them all para naman hindi sayang. One of those are my Virginia Olsen Minerals eye shadows! They have great pigmentation and wide range of shades. I think the reason why I rarely use them is because they're quite messy to use since they are like loose pigments. Anyway, since I realized that I rarely use them, I decided to do a tutorials using VOM eye shadows.

Most of the makeup looks that I do have neutral colors so I decided to do a wearable look that didn't include brown eye shadows. Here's a wearable blue smokey eyes that I did using Virginia Olsen Minerals eye shadows.

I used the shades Jirbie and Crescent Moon then the Virginia Olsen Mineral Blue Eyeliner. To intensify the look, I added a black eye shadow. Here's a closer look:

If you want to recreate this look, here's the video tutorial:

Since the eye makeup is already dramatic, I just used a light neutral lip color.

You can pair it with a light pink lip color, too!

If you're going to wear this look, what lip color would you pair it with? I think I like the nude one better. :)

Stay awesome and accomplish your mission! :)

Myra Holistic Skin Care - Beautiful Skin Starts From Within

As a beauty blogger and a makeup artist, it is very important for us to take good care of our skin since we try different products on our face and body. While different skin care products such as facial cleansers, moisturizers, toners, and the likes help, these aren't really enough.

Myra started the campaign Beautiful Skin Starts From Within to help and educate every woman that taking care of your skin must start by taking care of your body first.

Here are some guidelines to follow in taking care of your skin from within:

Sleep. Your entire body, including your skin, goes into repair mode while you snooze. Help your skin cells regenerate and your facial muscles relax by making sure you catch quality sleep. Still feel like you’re not getting enough rest when you wake up in the morning? One of the reasons could be that your alarm is rousing you in the middle of your deep-sleep stage. To make mornings less of a drag—or if you know you’re only catching a few hours of shuteye—try setting a wake-up time that’s a multiple of 90 minutes. This is the length of the average sleep cycle, so you’re sure to wake up to a beautiful morning.

Exercise. Even though you know that a good work out is great for your heart, lungs, and mental outlook, chances are, you’re still not hitting the gym as much as you should. Here's a little motivation that’ll inspire you to get moving: Regular exercise is also one of the keys to scoring healthy skin. By increasing blood flow, exercise helps nourish skin cells and keeps them vital. It also helps carry away waste products, including free radicals, from working cells. Think of it as a cleanse for your skin, but from the inside.

Hydrate. Healthy skin is well-hydrated skin. If you want your complexion to glow, you need to make sure that you’re drinking enough H20 on a daily basis. Keep this Kor water bottle on your desk at work or in your car, and remember to sip often. Want to add a little flavor? Toss in a lemon wedge or a splash of fruit juice—it’s a great substitute for sugary sodas or iced teas.

Eat Well. Did you know that the food you eat matters to your skin almost as much as it does to your waistline? This is because your skin uses vitamins and nutrients from food to repair and rebuild damaged skin cells. Make time to plan your meals daily with the help of this Yummy Light Meals recipe book, so you don’t end up going for unhealthy options or fast food.

Take Vitamin E. This is where the heart of Holistic Skin Care is. As you go about your usual work day, you get exposed to bad and uncontrollable free radicals that damage your cells. The result: tired-looking skin that looks dull, dry, and aging. Help your skin bounce back and recoup easily by adding a daily dose of Vitamin E to your diet. Since this vitamin isn’t produced by the body, taking a powerful Vitamin E supplement like Myra, can help. It’s rich in anti-oxidants to help boost your skin from within and also stops skin-damaging, free radicals from stealing life from your cells. The best part is, it also repairs damaged cells and works hard to protect the healthy ones. And with more healthy cells in your body, you’ll be able to have beautiful, glowing and younger-looking skin throughout the years to come.

I recently got this bag of healthy goodies from Myra and I was really happy because these essentials can really help me with my daily life, especially now that I'm in a weight loss journey.

I really love this Kor One water bottle! It even has a tag with my name on it! Yay! Definitely a great addition to my workout routines. :)

And of course, the highlight of the package, the Myra Vitamin E Capsules!

Myra E 400 IU Capsule d-Alpha Tocopherol
- Natural Vitamin E
- P94.64 per box of 8s
- P354.90 per bottle of 30s
- P1,183.00 per box of 100s

Myra 300-e IU Capsule dL-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate
- Synthetic Vitamin E
- P241.50 per bottle of 30s

Both of the Myra 400-e and Myra 300-e are available at leading drugstores, department stores, and supermarkets nationwide.

I know that many of you don't have enough time to sleep and to exercise and to even eat properly due to their daily duties as responsible individuals of this world but try to at least take your Vitamin E and drink water any time you can.This will really help not just to get that beautiful glowing skin but it will also make you healthier.

However, if you have an extra time, you can do simple exercises even for a few minutes. You know, when I started working out, I felt way, way better! And it is absolutely proven that eating the right food, getting enough sleep, and drinking lots of water will really improve your skin condition. It will be my first time to take these vitamins so I hope you can join me and follow these friendly guidelines, too and start living a healthier life for a better you. :)

Stay awesome and accomplish your mission! :)
