H&M Beauty

The long wait is over! H&M is stepping up their game with a new beauty line, and it is finally in Manila! They launched at their flagship store in SM Megamall last September 15, 2017. Aside from the comprehensive selection of make up and nail polish, their beauty line also consists of bodycare, haircare, and beauty tools.

The cream lipsticks glided on smoothly and the blushes are my favourite!

I just finished doing errands with my kids before heading to the event, hence the very causal and comfy OOTD — my uniform when I’m too busy to think about what to wear! Lately, I have been wearing black leggings with black shoes for an edgier look.

Unfortunately, I had tech problems this week and all my IG stories from this day wasn’t saved in my temporary phone. So, here’s a video to show swatches of a few products:

Products:

Pure Radiance Powder Blusher (Deep Brown)

Eyeliner Pot (Dark Chocolate)

Lip Colour-To-Go (Bonne Vivante)

 

Happy Beautylista

       My very first makeup workshop, Happy Beautylista, was held last June 3, 2017.  I taught my students different makeup techniques to achieve a natural look and my co-facilitator and life coach friend, Kimi Lu, took care of nurturing their inner beauty through positive thinking and feel good exercises. My students learned basic makeup and were very eager to learn about contouring, highlighting, and shaping the eyebrows — well, because kilay is life and of course everyone wants to look slim, sculpted, and glowing at the right places!

        We were so happy with the outpour of support given to us by our generous sponsors. We would like to thank Calyxta, Benefit, L’oreal, Rudy Project, Fitness 360, illuminate ph, and  Lifestyle Salon by Louis Philip Kee for the gift certificates and goodies for all our participants! It was a such a fun, light, and feel good afternoon that was all about makeup and good vibes! We actually had to extend the workshop because everyone was so eager to learn! Thank you queen of protons for pushing me to do this! We would also  like to thank our very first batch of happy beautylistas for attending the workshop! All of you made Kimi and I very happy!
