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!

Contouring and Highlighting Tutorial

Hi everyone! This is the kind of contouring and highlighting that I do when I know that I will be taking a lot of photos -cream contour followed by powder contour. I love how make-up can give the illusion of a slimmer nose, face, forehead and jaw! I hope you find this useful and that you enjoy doing it on yourself! I am pretty sure that you will be happy with the results -instant face lift!!! (sans the pain of surgery! :P) I am also sharing with you some of my holy grail products in this video! My current favourites are the RMK Creamy Foundation, Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-colour, Laneige Cushion Highlighter, and Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream. Have fun! Remember, you are beautiful, inside and out! 🙂 xoxo

Clean, Defined, and Natural Eyebrows

Welcome to my very first blog post! They say that the eyebrows are the map of the psyche, so I thought it would be interesting to do an eyebrow tutorial! The brows are the frames of the face, and for me, they look best when they are clean, defined, yet still natural. I really hope that you learn something new from me today! Please remember to subscribe to my youtube channel: beautylista. Have fun!!!
