I’ve been working as a Virtual Assistant for more than 3 years and I can say that I found my passion in it. I have so much fun when I am starting, I am so excited and full of dreams. Although I started small, I really appreciate my work because I am learning new things and I am able to take care of my son back then. After a few months of working part-time, unfortunately, I got to move to [Read more…]
I love using makeup, in fact, I have some of my favorites that I will review later. My most favorite kind of makeup is lip tints, I love every color and I lose counting them (yeah, I have so many)! I am also a huge fan of makeup apps and I keep taking selfies of myself and editing them in my favorite app. As I use my makeup for almost every day (yeah, I used it even when I am at home, ha-ha!), I learned so many lessons and decided to write them down so I can share it with you! Are you excited for it?! I bet, you are!
So, let’s tackle them one by one.
#1: Airbrushed effect
I recently bought a set of makeup brush but honestly, I still have no clear idea on how to use each of them! Am I crazy or just an impulse buyer?! Before I bought my newest makeup brush set, I use this magical effect. I use a regular brush that I have been using in my blush on and dab it in my favorite blush on. I swirl the brush on my cheek bone in a circular motion to my hairline before the ears. Even if you don’t have an airbrush, this method will give you the effect you desired of.
#2: No-no swelling eyes
I find myself crying in the night while I am watching my favorite shows and this makes my eyes puff in the morning! Yikes, one day I watched a heavy Korean drama and the next morning my eyes are swelling! Lucky me, I don’t have any appointment and I just stayed in the house the whole day. I found out that cold water is great for swelling eyes, simply splash it in your eyes right after you wake up. Ta-da! Your eyes are back on track!
#3: Another no-no: lip licking
I hate dry lips, during this cold seasons my lips are chapped and I hate the feeling! I usually licked my lips because I feel that my lips are drying so I keep them dehydrated by licking. But lately, my dentist notice my chapping lips when I had an appointment with her and advise me to stop it immediately. The bad habit is unknowingly making my chapped lips worse so I had to stop it immediately. I learned that the saliva is drying the lips even more so she told me to use a soothing lip balm or petroleum jelly instead.
#4: Eyeshadow for long-lasting lipstick
Every woman wants a long-lasting lipstick but this kind of lipstick is kinda expensive. So, what’s the last resort? Yeah, fake brands! But they aren’t proven safe and effective! Here is a trick that you will love. After you apply your lipstick, topped it with your eyeshadow with a matching shade. This will give you a long-lasting lipstick and a matte finish too!

#5: Retouch using oil
Isn’t annoying if your foundation is already running and you need to retouch but have no proper place or you are too shy to do it? Don’t worry, you can use a small amount of oil, even your baby’s oil to retouch your skin. Dab the oil on your cheeks, just a little amount of it will do. This will make your face glow, make sure you don’t overdo it.
#6: ATM for volume eyelashes
I love my lashes, even if they aren’t that long! I use a simple trick to get my desired volume. Using an ATM card (you can use any card), I place it behind my lashes. Then I apply my mascara from roots to tips just the usual way I do it without the card and voila! I have a volume eyelashes! This is very easy to do and I love this trick because it is mess-free!
#7: Don’t throw that soft eyeliner
I want my eyeliner hard, when it is soft it will just smudge on my face and I don’t like it! I am having a hard time sharpening my soft eyeliner, too bad because it is my favorite. I read before that I can freeze it to make it hard and easier to sharp and use. So I give it a try and yes, it works like magic!
#8: Removing makeup instantly
Makeup removal isn’t easy especially when you have so many layers. I love my makeup remover but sometimes I am having difficulties. So one day, I add a few drops of baby oil on my cotton ball which already has my makeup remover. I am so surprised with the result! My makeup removes in an instant! Even coconut oil, sunflower oil, and olive oil work too!
#9: Forget the blush
One day, I forgot my blush on and I am looking pale! I will meet an old friend that day so I don’t want to look pale and dull. I only had my lipstick with me. I rushed to the toilet a minute before our meet up, my only resort is my lipstick so I had no other choice. I am too shy to borrow someone’s blush on in the mall’s comfort room and it is not hygienic at all. I also have no time to go to the department store’s makeup section to apply some blush on tester there! So, I give my faith to my lipstick and hoping it will work. I am so surprised, I like it and the feeling is not sticky and not heavy! Sometimes even when I have my blush on with me, I still prefer my lipstick!
#10: 1 eyeshadow for 2 events
One day I had 2 events that needed to attend to. In the afternoon, I need to accompany my son to a children’s party and after that, I had a besties’ night out. So, I need a glamorous makeup that will suit the two events because I have no time for retouch! So I decided to blend two eye shadow colors and I love the new shade! It is perfect for the besties’ night out and suite the party without intimidating the kids. I love this trick and I will do it over and over again!
Ops, I have a bonus tip for you! Buy makeup that is rich in vitamin C, E, B#, and zinc- they are all good for the skin! And of course, don’t forget your sun protection, look for SPF 15 or 30! Stay beautiful and fabulous, girl! XoXo!
It’s not my cup of tea to read any genre of a book but when I received this book “Beak Free” by Don Soriano from my friend, I’m honestly not interested to read it. But yesterday I had a chance to read because I had nothing to do while on vacation. [Read more…]
As a mom, we sure want only but the best for our kids. From the moment they show up interest to a certain thing, our very first response then is to support them all the way. From learning the colors, shapes, down to reading ABCs and counting 123s, we provide them all the sources they need to make it easier for them to learn it. This also applies to learning music particularly on how to play songs using a certain instrument. [Read more…]
A friend of mine recommended an app she has been using in booking her travel needs for many times. Just in time, I need a vacation! Hubby and I were planning on having a nearby vacation, a hotel or resort booking perhaps. So, without hesitation, I got the app and was so surprised how easy it was [Read more…]
A few weeks ago, I shared with you the experiences I have with threading my eyebrows. I can imagine your facial expressions while you are reading my blog about it. Now, [Read more…]
During toddler years, children are very challenging to handle. They will throw tantrums anywhere and any time of the day. I’ve experienced it many times, not only to my dear son but also to my siblings. It is hard to tame tantrums especially if you are not at home. Through the years, [Read more…]
They say that when a child reaches the age of two, your life will become terrible. That is why they are called terrible two! When my son turned two, he gets easily upsets! He has lots of tantrums and mood swings and they drive me crazy! I thought that the terrible [Read more…]
When I was so new to eyebrow shaving, I have no idea about it. I ran to a salon in front of my
grandma’s house for our prom night, and the stylist told me that he needs to shape my eyebrows through shaving. I was hesitant at that time, but I trust him [Read more…]
It’s almost Christmas, and I can’t wait for our Noche Buena, hope there’s Lechon in our table! I love this season, even if the climate is cold, the people are so warm! During this time too, I have so many work load which I am very thankful! What excites me with this season is the Metro Manila Film Festival. I already told you how we love watching movies on our weekend dates. At least once a month we watch movie together, and my son love the experiences! We just recently watched the Super Parental Guardians weeks ago, and the movie is so hilarious! I love the humor of Vice Ganda and the two kids. Coco Martin is a hunk; please don’t tell my hubby about it! The moment I heard that the film is not included in the MMFF 2016, I am a little bit sad but at the same time excited because the screening dates are sooner and we don’t have to wait for Christmas.
I find all the movies in MMFF 2016 as excellent films. Although I am a little bit surprised that the usual movies are not included in the said festival. After watching the trailers for the films, I still can’t decide which movies we will watch as we cannot afford to watch all of them but I already have some lineups. You can also help me decide or these trailer reviews might help you to decide which ones are better. Let’s see which movies will get the loudest applaud from the audience, and I will do the review in alphabetical order, and it has no bearing at all!
Movie #1: Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank 2: Forever Is Not Enough
I love that Hugot Lupasay level! Eugene Domingo is Eugene Domingo, and no one can steal that crown on her! I like the first movie, so I think there is no way that I will not like this one. The movie is so cute, and I am so glad that there is a part two, I will watch this but not with my son.
Movie #2: Die Beautiful
The movie is so intriguing! I love the makeup transformation of Paolo Ballesteros; he is so talented. I can sense that the movie is a mixed of drama, comedy, and even horror! I love that last scene, although it is a little bit creepy to take a photo beside a corpse inside a coffin.
Movie #3: Kabisera
My grandma loves Nora Aunor. The movie seems more intriguing and full of suspense. I am so surprised that it is based on a true story, I can sense a political issue here. I can’t imagine it happening to my family!
Movie #4: Oro
Based on the trailer, sounds like another political movie. I hate how corrupt politicians are hunger for power, but I salute those who are patriotic. This movie looks so promising.
Movie #5: Saving Sally
The movie is so interesting! Hubby and I are looking forward to watching it. Probably because we are both born in a generation who loves anime. The first time I saw the trailer, I giggled! The animation is so interesting too, tons of hard work!
Movie #6: Seklusyon
I may need to ask my cousin about Catholic rituals. The movie is so intriguing; I have goose bumps when I am watching the trailer. I can’t afford to watch it alone, may need some friends along. I heard so many miracles happened, but I haven’t witnessed any and I have no interest if it will lead me to a true to life horror, yikes!
Movie #7: Sunday Beauty Queen
A documentary type of movie in MMFF?! Wow, that’s new! Anyways, this MMFF is surprising. I like the genre of this movie. It is nice to know that there are films like this who tell us the stories behind OFW’s successes and sacrifices.
Movie #8: Vince & Kath & James
I am an avid fan of the text series that has been viral to FB about Vince and Kath, so I can’t wait to see this movie. Although, there are some alterations. The movie is very millennial type! The trailer makes me kilig, and I will surely watch this movie.
How about you? What are the movies in the upcoming MMFF 2016 you will most likely to watch? I think all of them deserve being in the festival. Now, I can’t wait which movie will hit the #1 in blockbuster! See you at theaters this coming Christmas! I think, Christmas in Pinas is never complete without watching a movie together with loved ones. For our family, it has been a tradition, and when we were younger, all of us cousins are watching our preferred movies.
