Hey guys! We just got back from our Mother's Day trip to Subic. If you follow me at Instagram (@yellowyum), I actually posted a couple of photos from the trip. This week, we'll be going out of town once more. But I wanted to post this tutorial here on my blog first; if any of you would like to try it out. :)


This is my Summer/Spring Makeup Look! I played with a few colors and lots of shimmer. It's very wearable, fun and pretty.





Products Mentioned:
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk
Elianto Eyeshdaow
Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Liner
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
NYX Cream Blush in Rose Petal



Other Products Used:
Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler


Tools:
Suesh Eyeshadow Brush


For summer, I rarely wear liquid or cream foundation just because I'm afraid it will melt because of the heat. Plus I don't like the feeling when I break a sweat. I would normally go for powder foundation or BB cream if I need a little bit more coverage.


What do you think? Share with me your favorite makeup look! :)

Since it's almost Mother's Day. Let me do a YellowMum post for a change. :) When it comes to Robyn, I'm quite particular about the products that I use on her. Simply because we've had problems with her skin back when she was 3 weeks old. Although her skin has definitely improved and I wouldn't really categorize her as sensitive. 

During my Birthday Weekend last November 22-23, my family decided to stay at Marco Polo Manila overnight and it was the first time that we had a staycation with Robyn. Since we were there, I decided to take Robyn for a swim. It was also the first time that we went swimming as a family. This was also the perfect time to use her new Mustela Very High Protection Sun Lotion.


Developed following major new advances in sun protection for children, Very High Protection Sun Lotion from Mustela has been specially designed to protect the delicate skin of babies and children from dangerous solar radiation, right from birth.
Enriched with Avocado Perseose, a patented natural ingredient which protects the cell stock of babies' and children's skin, this product, which has been specially designed for use on the face, provides improved cellular protection, preserving the skin's natural defences and preventing the cells from getting damaged. 
This product has been formulated using a protection system that provides an optimum efficacy/tolerance ratio. Specially designed for the face and body, it contains no organic filters known to be allergenic (octocrylenes, cinnamates, etc.), is free from all fragrance and alcohol and guarantees high protection on all skin types included atopic skins and sun intolerant skins. 


The first time that I used this was when we went for a swim on my birthday and then I used it when we went to Baguio last January and now that it's summer, putting on sunscreen is a must. I would usually put sunscreen on her face and I alternate this with Belo SunExpert Ultragentle Sheer Spray. Although I usually use this for the face and the Belo spray for her body.


What I LIKE:
  • light weight
  • comes in a pump tube
  • protect against harmful UVA and UVB rays
  • perfect consistency for cream, it's not runny nor is it heavy thick
  • no stinging effect on Robyn even if it goes to her eyes
  • easy to apply
  • smells just like any other Mustela product
What I DON'T LIKE:
  • a little pricey
For me personally, I am happy with this product. Robyn has never had any problems or irritations with this and I like that it's not as sticky as the usual sunscreens. I only apply a small amount and spread it evenly so that it dries faster. Do I recommend it? Yes I do. It may be a little expensive but it's hypo-allergenic and it's 100% organo-mineral sunscreen with naturally-derived TiO2 and free of nanoparticles or in other words, the ingredients used make up for the price. But if you are on a tight budget, I think you find other alternatives for this product. So don't sweat it. ;)
What is your favorite Mustela product? I also hear so many great things about the Vitamin Barrier Cream! :)

One of the most recent events I attended was the launch of Heroine Make Jewelry Eye Color. The place was transformed to the very feminine workshop room. Staying true to the persona of the brand as reflected by their brand icon Princess Elisabeth Himeko to educate the women of the world on how to beautify themselves; the highlight of the intimate event was the tutorial and make-up demo conducted by make-up artist and beauty consultant from Japan Sayuri Igarashi




Before the event started, we were able to go around and look at the different products of Heroine Make. I'm actually a fan of their brand. As many of you know, my current favorite mascara is from Heroine Make.



 Selfie with the photobombing Princess Elisabeth Himeko at the back.


I sat beside Genzel who I've done a makeup collaboration with. We spent the whole time chatting! She's such a sweet person! :)


When the program started, I remembered her from the Heroine Make event last year!


Miss Igarashi said: “I am truly happy to have had the chance to do make-up for a number of Filipinas during the event. Filipinas as you know, are known the world-over to have beautiful, healthy skin which is in fact the best canvass for make-up.”



She further said that the products of KISS ME Heroine Make are perfect for the Asian skin and weather where the demand for “all-weather” make-up that withstands the rigors of heat, humidity, rain and sweat are ever increasing.






She proceeded to doing makeup demos. She did a natural daytime look, night time look and even an office look.


I actually appreciated her workshop because I got to learn more about the products. She explained each product she used and how to properly use them. She also told us that Heroine Make products are long lasting so it should last you the whole day even with this humid weather.




Daytime look using the new Heroine Make Jewelry Eye Color:



She also did a night time look: 


Here's the office look using Pink Amethyst:




As for me, I decided to wear my favorite Heroine Make products that day.

Heroine Make Impact Frame and Curl Mascara
