Hey there, pretty girl
I often get asked how I do my make-up, what brands I use, and what I recommend. Well, here are a few essentials easily accessible and affordable thanks to Pretty Girl Make-Up!
I’ll be using these 4 products:
1) MISS PERFECT pencil eyeliner - I used the eyeliner on my bottom lids. I love how it makes a solid bold line. My favorite product out of the bunch!
2) LEBELAGE waterproof liquid eyeliner - The tip is very thin, recommended for precision such as a winged tip!
3) LEBELAGE eyebrow pencil - I love the tint of this brown. It has two ends/tips but of the same shape.
4) MAYBELLINE bronzer - I used this to give myself a golden glow and to contour the shape of my face.
I first used little foundation and concealer to even out my skintone. You could use bb cream, tinted moisturizer or any foundation for your make-up base.
After applying all the products listed, I just used light lipstick and some light pink blush. Here’s the result!
Here are some photos in natural daylight. What do you think? Perfect simple look when shooting your outfit shots or going out with friends or on a date!
After walking around the whole day, inside the mall and outside on the streets and back, my eye makeup stayed almost in tact! No smudges whatsoever! Just retouched my powder a few times and that’s it.

Got invited to MAC’s Archie’s Girls launch in MOA! Thanks to my awesome friend Vani! There have been great reviews from this collection which brings no question as to why it’s nearly sold out in every lippy shade. Who doesn’t love Archie? I am probably the BIGGEST fan of Archie Comics. I’ve always considered myself a Betty which is why I got myself the Betty Bright. It was sold out during the first half of the launch. Luckily, I was invited to the 2nd half so they had stocks. WHEW!
The event was so much fun! It felt as if we were in Pop Tate’s Diner! Teehee! Enjoyed the rumcoke floats, hotdogs, burgers, gourmet fries and the music coming from a giant jukebox! Had such a great time with Jacob and I also got to catch up with my CSA friends who were there! Hoping to get invited to the MAC x Riri launch! *fingers crossed*

Tickle Me Pink
Pink is totally in right now and I just want to share with you one of my favorite night looks with this color. It’s perfect for events or a night out with friends. It’s soft, subtle and just right.
It’s really simple and easy. The 3 key components of this look are as follows:
I first began by applying my liquid foundation. This is DiorSkin Nude 20. After that I used my concealer, powder and contour.
Then, I used all 3 colors on the left side of this palette. You can find a palette like this almost anywhere. Like MAC or Nars. I suggest looking for the shimmery-matte finish.
I mixed the medium pink with my highlighting color to get a light-medium pink right in the center. I then used my contour shade and blended that in.
Finally, I used my highlighting color on my inner creases and right below my eyebrow and blended it all in. When you’re happy with how you’ve blended all the colors, apply eyeliner on your upper and lower eyelids.
I finished this look off with pink lip gloss, Dior Addict, and a light rose blush.
Here are some photos I took with flash.
There you have it! Thanks for taking time to read my post. Enjoy playing around with the color pink this season. Tell me what you think by commenting below! ‘Til my next makeup post!
BTS: Campus Paper
Last Sunday was one of the most gratifying moments I’ve had. Campus Paper got in touch with me to do makeup for them and to model as well.
Campus Paper is a pioneer in the Philippine publishing industry, being the first free newspaper/magazine that will be distributed to top universities and schools. It also has an online component, which hopefully will grow along with the print edition.
Although it is still in the initial stage, they have have high hopes for it since the trend for publication is towards only three avenues: online, magazine and free publication. Campus Paper aims to become a venue for expression and a trendsetter among the youth. The focus is lifestyle with a dash of campus current events.
The man behind this publication is none other than the author of 8 inspirational books, TV Host and the founder of Monday, Mr. Down-to-Earth, Lloyd Luna. That day could could have gone the other way and became stressful but instead we were laughing all day long thanks to him!
Excited? Me too! The maiden issue is coming out this July! So watch out for that! For now, here are more photos from behind the scenes!
Kinda perspiring already from the heat. I didn’t get to retouch myself. Whoops. Haha!
Most of the makeup I did was intended to be light and natural for young teens. That’s Pau. She was so cute that day, very friendly. She helped me out by taking most of the following photos since my hands were busy.
I got to catch up with Arnie again. I was with her for the Listerine event. What a coincidence!
Guess who else I got to be with again! Kat and her duck face! I guess hanging out the second time around is better. Here they are! The other pretty models that day all made up by yours truly.
What can you say about their makeup? I’m very open to your feedback!
There you have it. Stay tuned for Campus Paper this July! Until then!
