SHISEIDO International Beauty Fair 2015

I attended the Shiseido International Beauty fair at SM Megamall two weeks ago. They’ve been going around the premiere malls around Manila to showcase their latest products from the 2015 Spring and Summer collection. You can catch the last three days from TODAY, March 29, until the 31st (Tuesday) at the SM Mall of Asia Atrium. Here’s a quick peek at what we were able to witness during the IBF: Makeup – loads of it!

My Little Mermaid Hair | CREATIONS by Lourd Ramos Salon

***Please read disclaimer at the bottom*** I promised myself that I would stop dyeing my hair for a year because I wanted to grow out all the bleached parts so I can cut it off. But last January, I was called for a shoot and I had no choice but to dye the roots. The problem was, I couldn’t just dye the roots because the color was already hideous from mixing hair dye brands and chemicals on my hair. (eeek!) So I said that I’ll only dye it if it’s done by a good salon that uses a safe brand.Read more

BENEFIT Cosmetics They’re Real Liner, Mascara & Remover (Review)

Remember my ‘Prom Queen’ eye makeup tutorial last month? Well, here are the key makeup that I used to achieve those vibrant plum eyes.   For my eyeshadows, I used Catwalk Cosmetics and for everything else, I used Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real products. The They’re Real Push-up Liner is the first of its kind. It’s a gel-type liner in the form of a pen so it’s very convenient to use because there’s no need to buy an eyeliner gel brush for application. It may be easy for me to use this but it may take some time for some people,Read more

OOTD: Red for Good Luck

Ever wondered why Chinese love to wear red? That’s because they believe that the color symbolizes fire, which equates to good fortune, luck and joy. Red is strictly forbidden during funerals and mourning period as respect to the dead so the assigned colors for that is black or white. Hence, my parents always scolding me for frequently wearing black. It was even harder for us during the 90’s when the Chinese oldies elders were more close-minded but now, even my aunts and grandparents wear black! I picked this red and white dress at Ever New to wear to the DaylongRead more
