6 steps to achieve achieve a festive and “fa-la-la flawless” face!

HOT for the Holidays Sexy up the season with 6 easy makeup ideas!
 Looking for beauty inspiration for your next holiday party? Follow these tips from Benefit Cosmetics to achieve a festive and “fa-la-la flawless” face!

Contouring this season is subtle...less is more. To create a naturally-sculpted look, sweep a soft matte powder bronzer like hoola beneath your cheekbones and jawbones and along the sides of your nose. Blend thoroughly to avoid harsh lines.

Light up the party with simple strobing! First, swirl peachy-pink blush on the apples of your cheeks, then blend a soft, shimmery highlighting & strobing cream like watt’s up along the tops of cheekbones, the bridge of your nose and cupid’s bow.

Groomed brows are key to achieving a party-perfect look.“Brow shaping has the power to transform your features...brows can even help contour your face!” says Jared Bailey, Benefit’s Global Brow Expert.  For example, less space between eyebrows creates a slimming effect on the nose, while extending the tail end of the brow makes a round face look more lean. Bailey calls this technique “brow contouring”. For expert help, pop into your nearest Benefit Brow Bar Beauty Lounge to reveal your ideal brow shape with a Signature Brow Mapping. This personalized consultation is complimentary*...tweeze the season! *available where services are offered.

After you’ve shaped your brows, get them all decked out! To get Instagram-worthy feathered brows like those seen on our model, draw short upward strokes with a super fine tip pencil like precisely, my brow pencil. Use a light flicking motion with the tip of your pencil in the direction of your natural hair growth. Finish by brushing on 3Dbrowtonesinstant highlighting gel to add subtle highlights & dimension to brows.

For big, sexy eyes that will put you at the top of the “naughty” list, stroke they’re real eye liner along upper lash line, flicking up the outer corners to create a cat-eye effect. Then apply they’re real lengthening mascara. Hold the wand horizontally then wiggle through lashes from base to tip. Next, hold the wand vertically and stroke the custom dome tip through lashes for curl and separation.

Don’t get caught under the mistletoe unprepared! For sexy, fuller-looking lips, trace over your natural lip line with a liner that’s 1 to 2 shades deeper than your lipstick. They’re real! Big Sexy Lip Kit makes it mistake-proof with four shades of double the lip!  Lipstick and liner in one. The Custom Teardrop Tip contains two perfectly-paired shades that line and fill-in lips in one easy step. Simply position the pointed tip along your upper lip line and glide on. Pivot to fill in your lower lip.

Wander with Passion, Travel with Wrangler!

I consider myself a person with wanderlust gene. I have to admit that I am delighted when it comes to airport, airplane rides, searching for top 10 places to visit in a certain country or place, packing stuff and buying souvenir items as a remembrance of the places that I went to. There's something about travelling that makes me feel complete and transforms me as a new person. Being exposed to travelling at a young age, I have to say that experiencing things first hand is the best way to learn in life and the best way to reminisce them is by looking back to a travel journal or a personal diary.

At last! An all-in-one planner that can be a personal diary and a travel journal was launched by Wrangler last 17th of November at Highlands Prime Steakhouse, Estancia! In collaboration with Belle de Jour, Wrangler have come up with rustic designed planner.  As what Wrangler has envisioned, this particular planner is your perfect travelling buddy by sharing your your travel experiences or even your everyday stories in life in a more intimate way.

Nevertheless, the event was full of fun-filled experiences with my co-influencers. *Cringe!!*

I am a proud Nivea girl since puberty hit me. When I was 13, I started to get conscious with my body. Everything back then was changing and me being afraid to have body odor, I started using deodorant. Honestly, I have no idea which one to get since there were lots of brands to choose from. Nivea is the only brand that I trust when it comes to deodorant and it has been 8 years since I started using Nivea Pearl & Beauty for my deo and now I'm making a switch to a next level me. 

NIVEA understands that today’s Filipina is more empowered than ever – never settling, achieving more and always aspiring to be better.

Denim and black affair with Fran Moda!♡

As what they say, trends may come and go but classics are always here to stay. Denim has always been a versatile and a classic piece in fashion; whether it be a vest, jacket, pants or a skirt, denim always save us for a casual look. Nevertheless, denim could go with almost everything and so is the color black. Black is probably one of my favorite color when it comes to fashion pieces. Whenever I pick out something from the store, if it is available in the said color, I'd definitely go with it. 

I never limit myself when it comes to the clothes that I wear. I usually just pull out and try to mix and match the clothes that I have to make it look as good as new or as if I never wore it. But reality is, most of my clothes have been stuck in my closet for a year or two. HAHAHA!

I love every detail of this top because it is so girly and not so girly at the same time. The sabrina cut and blue floral details made it look feminine but the black and white stripes details made it look a little bit edgy. And believe it or not, it was a really good steal since it only costs Php 200-ish. (I'm not sure how much is it exactly since I bought it two years ago. :P) Paired with it is a classic A-line denim skirt from Forever 21! I'll spill the beans, it's actually from kids section. I know how it sounds embarrassing but hey, at least I have more options from clothes. *laughs*

A good set of clothes can be ruined by accessories, specifically the ones that can easily be seen! Always check if your clothes matches with your bag and shoes. I opted to go with my favorite black pieces from a posh online shop, FM Fran Moda

A structured bag is always a good option. It elevates your look from blab to fab!

A pair of black shoes is a must. But, a pair of black shoes with statement is essential.
And hey, when can a strappy doll shoes go wrong? ;)

They have an on going free shipping promo for this month of December!

Maybelline Haul from Lazada!

I am one of those girls who wears makeup from time to time —  at school, work, event and whatnot. As for regular days wherein I just have to look presentable, I always go for a natural look or the no-makeup makeup look. And honestly, my favorite go-to brand for my go-to look is Maybelline! This drugstore makeup brand has saved me from splurging on high-end products since they have dupes for almost every high-end makeup products that I have. Hypercurl Mascara, Creamy Mattes lipstick in Nude shade and Micellar Water are my top picks for their brand.

Obviously, I've been hoarding this Hypercurl Mascara because I always make sure that I have it in my bag, makeup kit and at home. I know, it sounds crazy! But, as for me, this is one of my holy grail products. It gives my lashes the lift it deserves and curl that it needs. 

As for the Creamy Mattes lipsticks, I got myself a brown shade that would suits my sun-kissed skin. I just recently tried this one and I fell inlove with it. It lasted more than the time I expected plus it is very pigmented and gives you a smooth texture finish!

The newest addition for Maybelline skincare is their Micellar water and I got myself my own bottle as soon as they released it on the market. My first bottle is almost empty but it lasted a few good months for me. My skin is very sensitive and I do get breakouts easily and this product has been saving me from acne since I tried it. But, after removing all the makeup, dirt and oil residue on my face, I always make sure to wash my face with cleanser.

Also, included from my Lazada haul is this Tresseme shampoo and conditioner that I brought with me during my Boracay trip. I am an avid user of Tresseme because it leaves my tresses smooth and healthy! I don't really brush my hair. I just finger combed it have it air dried all thanks to Tresseme's help!
