Why I Love Makeup( before and after photos)

Monday, August 30, 2010
Its been a while since i started to show my passion with makeup,that is one of the main reason why i started making beauty reviews,i wasnt expecting any,until one day i was given a chance to do makeup for a beauty brand..though i wasnt fully equipped i accepted it..and thats when everything started

i enjoy making other people happy with the way they look,with or without makeup

here are some of the before and afters.it always puts a smile on my face when i see my clients tap me before they leave just to say thank you..or smile just because they love the lip shade and stuff.

ive been so blessed even though im still starting,ive met so many lovely people;i can say that,this is what i really want not only because i enjoy it,but also because i get to make other people happy with what i do.

I just want to say thanks to my seniors..
Mamang Lourd and Achi Jim and also Ms.Cha

Product Review:Maybelline Clear Smooth Minerals Liquid Foundation

Wednesday, August 25, 2010
Another one from maybelline that might fancy you..Mineral Foundation in Liquid Form!

Price:PHP 299(sm department stores,watsons,sundance)
Clinically proven: No oil. No fragrance SPF 18/PA+++Directions: Apply prior to sun exposure. Dot on forehead, cheeks, chin and neck. Smooth with downward strokes until well blendedShades available: C02 Rose White, N02 Shell Beige, W02 Natural Buff, W03 Apricot Sand

shades...i own are apricot sand and shell beige.

foundation blob..Left-Shell beige/right-apricot sand
some says that this foundation looks pinkish,but i beg to differ,compared to their angelfit liquid foundation(which has been discontinued in my country)this has more yellowish/peachy tones on them,well atleast the ones that i own

semi blended..see how luminous my skin is beneath the foundation.it has spf 18 by the way,Coverage is sheer,it wont completely cover red bumps.

Blended...shell beige was my first shade but it looks a tad light on my skin,though its not noticeable i still prefer shades that exactly matches my skin..and that would be...their apricot sand..their darkest shade..(weird right)

lets apply them on to my face:

(facing the monitor)
Left-Maybelline Clear Smooth Minerals in ShellBeige/Right-Maybelline Clear SMooth Minerals in Apricot Sand

see what i mean...they matched me on shell beige maybe because i have fair skin,and apricot sand is their darkest shade so they mustve thought that it wont match me,oh and by the way i super love the finish(click photo to enlarge the pores=D).see how smooth it is on my skin...But on all fairness to them,on Mac they matched me as NC20-25 but i prefer their NC40 Foundation


  • lightweight,LOVE the Finish
  • No weird scent/odorless
  • Handy(comes in a small tube,that is no bigger than my hand)
  • Evens Out my Skintone
  • Looks Natural
  • Doesnt Cake on me
  • Easy To Blend
  • Locally Available(yey)
  • Inexpensive(maybelline sometimes have discount promos above 250php)
  • Its a mineral Makeup!in liquid and less messy form!

  • Like any other foundation..they only have 4 shades..
  • their darkest isnt dark enough for nc35?? and up
  • Since i have Oily Skin it doesnt last that long on me..(but with kryolan antishine and MUFE HD primer it held up up to 6-7 hours..Not bad)
  • Oily types must Set it with powder/anti shine.
  • Wont cover up redness/zits

Final Say:
For a Drugstore Brand(well we dont call maybelline,revlon,loreal drugstore brand in my country) its a keeper for me.i always reach out for this foundation,since it looks natural on my skin,i think this is great for people who only want something that will even out their skintone,but for those who wants extra coverage this might not be for you.Still you may want to try it for yourself on your local maybelline stores.

Good day ladies,just want to share my palawan trip for Mutya ng Pilipinas

before the trip..my co makeup artists and hairstylist

after one and a half hour of flight we went to the baywalk 

then all of us went  straight to A and A plaza for our lunch.. 

we then rode the coaster for another 2 hours 
the sheridan beach resort and Spa..

some of its facilities is still under construction but nevertheless the place still looked so beautiful

our room...before were able to get this room they were supposed to place us in a "villa" and by "villa" what i mean is a small nipa hut...with no electricity from 10pm-6am....of course our team wont settle for that...again were composed of 14-16 persons..in 2-3 nipa huts..with no electricity from 10pm-6am..woah...glad that they realized that our team leader is one of their Sponsors..(of course some of us still had to make them understand that big fact)

after we arrived..on to the shoot..(Ms East Coast and Lapu lapu)

we were out the whole day so we had to chill a bit..Yoghurt Shake for 80.Php

 Halo Halo for 70 Php

Touch up ladies hehe

For our dinner we were given this stub,for us to be able to eat we must present this small piece of paper first..there was another misunderstanding between some of the production team,the sheridans staff and ours..heres the story:(im just trying to share what happened)
they gave us this stub upon entering the place where they serve food,and we were okay with that,(were all tired and exhausted from work and the flight)we were all about to sit outside for our dinner but something happened so we moved to another place..were about to enter the resorts bar/restaurant,but since i need to pee i went up,but when i was about to close our rooms door i heard Lourds voice,she was pissed...when i came down they told me that a girl stopped them and asked them "mam/sir may stub po ba kayo?"(mam/sir do you have a stub?) and that the place was only for candidates..and not for the crews...thats when things got a little complicated...heres the thing..first,were not crews...Were a team of hair and makeup artists Composed of 2 of their sponsors,2nd..were about to sit out to eat,were all okay with that but somebody made us change our place,3rd..Why did the girl had to stop us for our Stub...wasnt it obvious that were all from mutya..and from my view its a bit disrespectful for them to hand out a crew Stub from their Sponsor...im okay with the stub,but as far as i know Sponsors are "VIPs",i mean theyre not asking for special treatment naman,at least show some respect and educate the Resorts Staff who's who,..first the nipa huts now the food.they really lack communication.I think they did the same thing to the Manila Bulletin Team..And heres what made my brows shift.the resorts PR..a lady in her late 40's or early 50's didnt say sorry,no apologies or whatsoever,she's even trying to cheap talk her way out of it..she said that they weren't informed,with a strong none apologetic tone..again all was settled with the production..(but not the resorts PR..imo)

heres my dinner...haha chicken cacciatore,salad plus lasagna.

a staff asked if we want to have some tea...of course we said yes..we thought it was complimentary..they just said "Mam would you like some tea"...but when we checked out this small tea costs ..Php 120.00,i didnt even took any sip..i just liked the aroma of my chamomile tea..haha
so thats it for this day,ill be doing a small haircare giveaway for you ladies thanks for visiting HUGS!
