Quick Tip! Eye Bags Remedy And More!

Having problems with eye bags? Fine line and crows feet?

I had the same problem since I have eye bags too. I have fine lines and crows feet as well.

What I do to keep them at bay and prevent from having them again is I use Pond's age miracle Dual Action Eye Cream. I only use this before going to sleep (I use different product during day time).

Pond's age miracle Dual Action Eye Cream has two different cream in two different formula inside. 1st cream (with pink color) I put on lid and 2nd cream (which is white) I put on under eye area.

I've been using this since 2011 and it helps reduce eye bags discoloration, reduce puffiness, and reduce/prevent fine lines and crows feet.

I am hesitant to use it at first because the more popular product didn't help me at all, but my make-up instructor and friend told me to try it since it works really well on her. And I'm glad she was able to convince me because it works well on me too.

Having the same problem? Try using Pond's age miracle Dual Action Eye Cream too, this might be the one solution you've been looking for.

Quick Tip! Get That Smooth and Kissable Lips!

Want that smooth and kissable lips?
Here's how:

1. Exfoliate your lips by brushing it gently before you sleep at night.
2. Then using cotton bud get half a pea size amount of Carmex and roll the cotton bud onto the lips until dry skin is removed and lips are smooth.
3. Use carmex the next day and make sure to purse lips together.

Carmex is effective yet affordable. Available in pots and in tubes. I use this on both male and female clients.

TOTT! ArtNet Professional Paris Brush #153!

Wanted to get slim crease detail that is blended really well? Yes? Then I recommend this brush from ArtNet Professional Paris. Brush no 153 is a small blending brush that will blend your crease detail and cut-crease really well. Because the tip is small and pointy it will not over-blend and erase the detail that you just created. The crease will look natural and well blended in seconds.

I had this brush for 2 years now and it looks and feels like new.

Here's a closer look of the brush hair.

Since I've been working with more than one face in one session, I decided to buy a new one.

But I was disappointed because the newer ones aren't like the one I purchased before. The tip is rounded unlike the one I bought first which is pointed. It still does the work but there's a risk of over-blending because the tip is not tapered to a point.

Closer look on the brushes' head/hair.

When you decide to buy one make sure to examine the brush head carefully and choose the one with hairs that are tapered to a point.

I really like this brush a lot. It's not the softest, I must say, but you can't go wrong with it. It's just sad that the new one I bought is not as pointy as the first brush.

This brush is available in Robinson's Manila and Robinson's Galleria.

Verdict: Love. Like. Nice. Skip. Drain.

It could have been love if not for the second purchase.

Behind The Scenes! Photo Shoot With Model Katrina!

I had the privilege of working with very beautiful Filipina-Spanish Model Katrina earlier today as her Hair and Make-up Artist. I created three looks for her photo shoot today. Katrina is very pretty already so it's really easy to made her up. I really had fun creating different looks on her.

Our photographer for today's shoot was Celwyn - who is also a TV/TVC director.

Please check some of the Behind The Scenes photos below:

Finishing her lip color.

Katrina's Before and After (1st look).

As you can see even without make-up she's so pretty. I just color corrected her complexion and enhance her beautiful features.

Katrina's first look. Photos taken by my iphone 4s.

1st look is natural beauty. I just enhance her already beautiful features.

Katrina's second look. Photos taken by my iphone 4s.

On the second look, I changed her lip color with bubble gum - neon pink and lined her lower water line with khol pencil and set with powder to prevent the khol from transferring outside the water line.

 Katrina's third look. Photos taken by my iphone 4s.

On her final look, I removed the pink lip color and massage her lips with lip balm before putting the red lip color. And I loaded lots of mascara on her natural lashes as this look requires no false eyelashes. I also darkened the outer corners of her eyes.

I hope you like Katrina's different looks that I created for her photo shoot today.

Don't forget to comment on what's your favorite look and ask questions if you have any.

Beauty Feature! Colors of Spring 2013!

Finally I was able to post here the beauty Feature I did on the Life & Style Section of Diaryo Filipino. The theme for the feature are the colors of Spring 2013 for eye makeup.

Spring for me is about new beginnings and having fun. And I wanted to express these ideas and display   it as eye makeup for women to wear. I hope these looks will appeal to women and have fun with it.

Below are the colors of Spring 2013 that I used as an inspiration:
