Valentine's is coming and I know not all of have time to get ready so here's a quick and easy look that you can create when you're pressed for time or even if you need to do your makeup in the car like myself. ;)
Brows on fleek, that's a phrase you'll hear ever so often nowadays. And I think that 2015 was the year of the brows. You can see it everywhere, women are sporting thicker, fuller but well defined brows. I'm sure you already know how important brows are. It's what frames your face and honestly, I know a lot of people who leave their houses with just eyebrow makeup and they look amazing!
Last year, I was introduced to my current favorite eyebrow product which is the L'Oreal Brow Artist Genius Kit. It was love at first swipe! Actually I received this from an event but kept it and never really used it until my aunt told me that she bought one and that it's something worth trying. Curious and intrigued, I whipped it out, gave it a go and never looked back!
The product consists of a wax and a powder. It also has small brushes that I don't really care for. It comes in 01 Medium To Dark and 02 Light To Medium.
The wax is really useful. I have some stubborn brow hair that irritates me so using the wax helps me tame those hair. It's also not very sticky as compared to other wax I've tried and not crumbly either. For me, it's the perfect texture for layering with the powder.
The powder is pigmented and it's creamy not chalky, so fall outs are pretty rare. I have tried using the powder alone without the wax and it works as well. It still adheres to the brows well. (Although personally, I like the color better when these 2 are mixed.)
The combination of the wax and the powder gives me natural looking brows that last the whole day. I have used it multiple times, from normal/regular days to very important events.

color is perfection. No need to alter with eyebrow gel/mascara.
wax keeps my brows tamed

compact, very travel friendly
affordable at only P400.00
easily accessible, available at any L'Oreal counter
I DON'T LIKE:
brushes are so tiny. It will take me an hour to finish doing my brows if I use it.
no tweezers with the compact.
Here are some photos of me wearing the L'Oreal Brow Artist Genius Kit:
I have been on an eyebrow pencil craze the past year but this product rekindled my love for eyebrow powder products. For me, this is a good beginner product. Not only does it have both wax and powder to ensure long lasting makeup, it's also easy to use too. I have received so many compliments when I wear this so needless to say, I highly recommend it.
One of the things people remember me by aside from my height and how young I look, is my hair. I'm a lucky girl and I feel blessed because I have a pretty manageable hair. I probably need to thank my mom and dad for it. All I really have to do is maintain my locks and that's where good quality hair care comes in.
Last January 23, Cream Silk, the Philippines' number 1 hair care brand, launched its newest campaign: Cream Silk Transformations: Spotlight on the #ModernFilipina.
“Gone are the days of the Maria Clara, as women are slowly climbing up the ranks and embracing bigger and better roles for themselves. Today, the modern Filipina has become both a spotlight and a beacon,” shared Gina Lorenzana, Unilever’s Vice President for Personal Care.“She has evolved into a fearless and trailblazing individual determined to realize her dreams and make a positive mark in the world.”
I went to the event not knowing what to expect and when I reached the venue, I gotta admit I was quite overwhelmed.
Cream Silk Transformations: Spotlight on the Modern Filipina was a whole day event that celebrated women, who have constantly challenged and transformed themselves. Cream Silk collaborated with the country’s top magazines– Cosmopolitan, Meg, MEGA, Metro, Preview and Yes! – to share and empower the attendees for their own transformation from good to great!
There were different booths and the magazines also hosted workshops and talks. There were even booths wherein the guests were treated to hair makeovers and even their own photoshoots.
As we were waiting for the grand finale, I was able to capture some photos of Rhiann Ramos who was the host for the evening.
Unfortunately, because I had to attend a family party that evening, I wasn't able to witness the grand reveal anymore where Cream Silk's newest endorsers, Nadine Lustre, Rachelle Ann Go, Coleen Garcia, Julie Anne San Jose and Yassi Pressman joined Cream Silk endorser, Heart Evangelista for the very first live cover shoot as stylists and photographers worked their magic.
Best of all, Miss Universe, Pia Wurtzbach also came and it was actually her very 1st public appearance in Manila since winning the Miss Universe title.
Pia epitomizes the most inspiring transformation of the Modern Filipina yet,set to conquer the universe! With a beauty that inspires, determined to realize her dreams, she has come back to make her positive mark in the world, taking her well deserved walk at Cream Silk’s event.
This 2016, let's aim to transform ourselves to be better. Share your own experience on social media by posting “One of my #CreamSilkTranformations in 2016 is to___________.”
Another throwback post, way back Wednesday! Last December, StyleHaul came to Manila and gathered StyleHaul beauty creators from the Philippines for a lovely get together. It was such a fun event and it was amazing seeing familiar faces and making new friends.
The get together/party was held at Todd English Food Hall in BGC:
Here's a little vlog:
