Birthday Makeup Look

My last post was my Birthday Salubong look, so I figured why not post my Birthday Makeup Look next. Again, this was taken last November 23, my real birthday. I just haven't had time to post these yet. 

For my birthday, I knew I wanted a red lip. That's all I knew. I've had this thing with REDs on Birthdays. It's Chinese tradition to wear red for birthdays. And I guess being the traditional that I am, I honor it most of the time. I even wear red for my birthdays. I remember doing a Pink and Red theme for my 22nd birthday. Haha! I wore pink and reds for the whole week leading up to my birthday. Yes, I'm cray cray like that. But this year, I still wanted to incorporate it and not exactly wear red. (Hubby and my daughter wore red though). So it's red lippy for my 29th!


I can't believe that I'll be celebrating my 30th this year! There was sooo many changes this decade. It's unbelievable. I am so thankful that I am who I am today. I know that I'm wiser, better and braver. This year is my last year as a 20something and I am looking forward to everything that this year has in store for me. :)


Products Used:
Face:
Essence All About Matt Primer Oil Control Makeup Base
Majolica Majorca Skin Remaker Pore Cover BO1Maybelline Pure Concealer Mineral
ELF Bronzing Powder and Contouring BlushK Palette 1 Day Magic 3D Palette



Eyes:
Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer
NYX Nude on Nude Palette


Lips:
Hurraw Vanilla Bean Lipbalm
Colour Collection Ultimate Wear Lipstick in Temptress


And then for dinner, we went to Bonifacio High Street to dine at PF Chang. I wanted to change up my lipstick and make it a tad bit more intense than my prior lip color. I also decided to put my hair up in a pony because I knew it would be warm walking in BHS.



Here's a photo of me strolling High Street

If you also want to see the tools I brought with me, here's my post on my Birthday Weekend Travel Makeup. I posted all of the brushes and makeup I used for my Birthday Salubong and Birthday Look. :)

Birthday Salubong Makeup Look

I celebrated my birthday last November and promised to share with you some FOTD photos and also post the products that I used. I know that it's been more than a month ago but I still wanted to post these pictures in case you wanted to try the same.


For my 29th, we decided to have a staycation at Marco Polo Manila. I've always loved hotel staycations. It was my family's tradition when I was a kid and it never left my heart. :) I will be talking about the hotel some other time.

We dined at Cucina that night for my birthday salubong. And although I have dined there a couple of times in the past, I wanted to still wear a little bit of makeup just to get me in the mood of my birthday. I opted for something very simple because honestly, after eating dinner, we'll just go back to the room to rest and sleep anyways.


Products Used:
Face:
Essence All About Matt Primer Oil Control Makeup Base
Maybelline Pure Concealer Mineral


Eyes:

Simple Gold Makeup Tutorial

New video! A collab with my beautiful sister, Dane. I'm so happy to have her do another makeup tutorial for my channel. She spent a couple of nights with us and we decided to team up for her Christmas Eve look.  I know this is a tad late since we filmed this during Christmas. But hey, it's so wearable than you can rock it any time of the year. 


This look was exactly what she wanted  for our Christmas party. Very natural looking, gold makeup to pair with her red lippie!


Here's the tutorial:




She brought her own makeup so that's what we mainly used except for the eyeshadow palette. Some of the products that she used, I don't have. So actually while filming the tutorial, we were also talking about her makeup. I was asking about the products she brought, her thoughts and reviews about them.


Products Used:
FS BB Cream
Collection Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer
Physicians Formula Talc Free Mineral Concealer
FS Two Way Cake in Duchess
In2It Waterproof Eyebrow Color 01 Eyebrowns
ItsJudyTime Palette
FS Long Lasting Waterproof Eyeliner
Krave Veggie Lash Mascara
Fashion 21 Duo Blush On
Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick in Siennas


We intentionally left out the makeup on her lower lids and lashline because that area folds and it just becomes messy that she looks like a panda a few hours after makeup application. So she just put a coat of mascara on her lower lashes just to define and lengthen a bit.




Thanks Dane for this! Comment and like the video if you want to see more of this beauty. :)

First Time: Luxury Facial & Coquille Peel

This is the last treatment I got at Luminisce Holistic Skin. If you haven't seen my vlog when I visited, click here so you can watch it. I got the Luxury Facial with Acne Surgery and Coquille Peel.


I haven't had a facial in soooo long. Simply because having no yaya/helper, it's quite difficult for me to schedule time for myself given that I have to take care of Robyn. I have wanted to get a facial last November but ended up forgoing the plan. So I finally decided to get a facial at Luminisce because they said that their facial is very relaxing.


Luxury Facial is a special facial treatment that deep cleans pores and removes bacteria-causing acne, trapped dirt and excess oil while minimizing pores upto 2 weeks. The pain free procedure begins with a soothing facial cleanse and relaxing facial massage. Then, skin-nourishing vitamins are absorbed into the skin via sonophoresis, a process wherein ultrasound waves seep nutrients into the skin, removing blackheads and whiteheads along the way. After, electric currents safely pass through the skin using a special machine to lift and revitalize the skin.


Finally, an oxygenating machine releases cool, pressurized oxygen into the skin to hydrate and open pores. It did feel really cool on the skin, although I have to admit it was pretty difficult to breathe while the process was being done. Haha! I had to hold my breath half of the time.


My therapist, Levy also put a moisturizing mask on me after the facial which felt really cool and tingly.

She also massaged my face that made the whole experience even more relaxing!


Then it was time treat my pimples. She injected it with IL steroids. It hurt a little like I was bitten by an ant, but totally tolerable.


Before doing the acne surgery which is basically the pricking of whiteheads and blackheads and pimples too, I got the Coquille peel. It uses Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) derived from natural fruit and food extracts. They effectively normalize the skin's natural exfoliating and hydrating properties by shedding the rough skin and restoring the skin's moisture levels.


The peel was somewhat itchy. I already expected this since even though it's from fruit and food extracts, it is still peeling. However, the Coquille peel didn't leave my skin looking red and there was no skin "peeling" which makes it a perfect facial for those who are in a rush and for those who still have things to do and places to go right after.


 Here are photos right after the Luxury Facial:


I also met Sumi who was chatting with Kenny as she was already done with her treatment too. :)


If you were wondering, Dra. Kaycee is in her 30s. But hey, she looks great right? :)


I also took photos 6 hours after the treatment.


As you can see, my skin looks so much better. It's become softer and really smooth. And very few whiteheads left. Dra. said that there are certain blackheads and whiteheads that we shouldn't prick just yet because it will only cause the pores to be bigger.


And these are my photos a week after the treatment.


Still glowing, still radiant looking. My skin still feel smooth as if I just exfoliated (even though I haven't). I think I look slightly younger. What do you think? In the photos, you can see the marks from my pimples which were injected. But I'm happy to report that they're gradually disappearing already. Wee!


Are you due for a facial? Why not try the Luxury Facial from Luminisce? :)

GlamBox High Definition Finishing Powder

First of all, I would like to greet everyone a very Happy New Year! I can't believe it's already 2015 because this year, a lot of things are going to happen, all exciting if I must say. I can't wait to share them all with you. :) This is my first post for 2015 and this is also going to be the first product review for 2015! I present to you a new product from our friends from GlamBox Cosmetics.

GlamBox High Definition Finishing Powder
in Manhattan 01

I received this a couple months back but took my time to test it out before sharing my thoughts.

The GlamBox Finishing Powder is an ultra-fine, sheer and lightweight finishing powder that sets your makeup, evens out coverage and gives your completion a natural matte finish! 
It is the perfect accent to any Airbrushed Look! Spray on GlamBox Airbrush Cosmetics and set with the GlamBox Finishing Powder! 
Use it on its own for a subtle fresh faced look or as the final step to any makeup look. Works brilliantly to flawlessly set both airbrush and traditional makeup.

They come in 3 shades, Manhattan (which is what I have), Capri (natural beige) and Rio (natural tan).


The first time I tried it out, I was already very impressed because of how fine the particles are. It really is finely milled so it blends so well to the skin. It feels so smooth on the skin and even leaves the skin feeling smooth yet still glowing.


What I LIKE:
  • very light on the skin
  • easily blended
  • no streaky marks
  • no white cast
  • mattifies the face
  • blurs pores
  • perfect as setting powder on liquid foundation
  • not cakey
  • somehow "highlights" the face
  • gives you an airbrush look

What I DON'T LIKE:
  • Pricey, P1350. However, like what I mentioned, it comes in a big jar so you won't be repurchasing anytime soon.
  • It's in powder form, so it can get messy.
  • Sheer coverage
I also want to note that since it's a finishing powder, expect it to have sheer coverage. It won't give you any coverage whatsoever. I'm not quite sure with the other shades but that's what I experienced with Manhattan. 

 Here are some photos of me wearing the GlamBox HD finishing powder:


Barely There Look
Finishing Powder alone
no foundation, only concealer under the eyes, bronzer and blush

together with foundation, concealer, under the eyes, contour and blush

Night Time Look

together with foundation, concealer, contour, blush and highlighter

Overall I really like this product and have used it alone and together with foundation and bb cream. It works really well and I do recommend this product. As you can see, it somehow blurred my pores and just gave me that "airbrush" look. You can even do what I did and split the product in half and kept the other half in my makeup bag to use for my clients.
