How to look lovely when you’re always in a hurry

I’m following this beauty guru in YouTube for years now – Wayne Goss. This expert knows what he’s talking about. He makes videos and known for his brief, effective and practical beauty hacks and makeup lessons. Goss makes everything simple, a basic eyeshadow trick for even the laziest girls. Much of what I’ve learned are from him and from a few other famous personalities in the web.

Yes there’s hope,

I’m sharing some useful tips for us Pinays who are always nagmamadali or always on the go.

Tip #1 – Choose products wisely

Select products that will help you achieve that wow look in no time, like BB creams or tinted moisturizers. Skipping a few steps in our daily struggle is crucial. After skincare, apply a fair amount of BB cream/tinted moisturizer. You’ll be surprised, they’re so easy to apply and blend compared to liquid or cream foundations as your base.




Tip #2 – Kilay is Life (eyebrow is life)

Haha, but yes it is. Eyebrow is huge nowadays. I can’t imagine myself going out with no eyebrows or my brows in halves, shameless! Don’t fret my loves, there’s a ton of brow products in the market right now for as low as P100. Make sure to pick the one that’s long wearing and with spooly/brush.


Tip #3 – Eye makeup in a flash

I actually skip this step most of the time since I’m wearing my glasses. But, when certain occasions demand a quick eye makeup, I’ve got an arsenal of products that’s highly recommended. Stick eyeshadow is heaven sent and will give you the fastest eye makeup imaginable. Yes, in less than a minute for me 😉 Just swipe and blend with your fingers, easy peasy! Apply liner or mascara as desired and voila pretty eyes.




Tip #4 – Crush blush

Flaunt your cheeks baby. Yes, rosy and plump cheeks is a sign of youth and vitality. And like what I’ve learned from Goss, you can use the same blush to subtly contour your face by applying it in the high points of your face. For that youthful and lovely sun kissed glow.


Tip #4 – Lipstick finale

This is no doubt a no-brainer trick, when it comes to appearing put up in an instant, lipstick is the key. One swipe and you’re good to go. Choose moisturizing lipsticks over drying matte ones if you like to avoid putting on lip balm.

Hope these help, till next post.

Tips for fighting Oily Summer Skin

During hot summer days, our skin tends to be more greasy, problematic and attention-seeking. Yes, it was one of my greatest concern too! Makeup lasts a few hours till we notice that our foundation is breaking apart, melting down and that eeww feeling as we watch in horror how our investment on makeup is going to waste. Lo and behold, I have my tried and tested tips for Oily Summer Skin.

Lo and behold, I have my tried and tested tips for Oily Summer Skin. 

  • Tip #1 – Use Moisturizer! stick with oil-free types.

And it may be helpful to opt for products that are specifically made for oily, acne prone skin. If we don’t moisturize our skin becomes thirsty, it will then produce more oil and the sebaceous glands will be crazi-er.

  • Tip #2 – Apply Sunblock.

My holy grail product next to moisturizer is sunblock or sun creams. Don’t skip applying a teaspoon-amount on your face just because it’s cloudy. Most harmful rays still get through those clouds and hurt your beautiful skin. Study also suggests that sunblock helps control oil and shine. 

  • Tip #3 – Choose BB creams or Tinted Moisturizers. 

Wearing cream foundation is heavy on skin and may even block pores which may lead to more skin problems like blackheads or acne. 

  • Tip #4 – Exfoliate. 

It won’t be part of Korean’s 10-step skin routine for nothin’. Exfoliating at least two times a week is the way to have smooth, clear, & oil-free skin!

  • Tip #5 – Detoxify with Masks. 

I have a few recommendations; try masks with Green tea like this budget-friendly mask from Baroness, a popular Korean brand. Or a vitamin enriched one like Baroness Vitamin C mask. They also have Aloe Vera to soothe tired/sensitive skin, & Collagen Masks for anti-aging. Other Korean brands like Innisfree, The Faceshop and Petitfee have fruit infused masks to revitalize and deep cleansed the skin.

These masks will do wonders on your skin while you relax 🙂

Beauty in a budget

Like most ladies I know, using products that delivers excellent results without leaving a dent in our wallets is something dear to our hearts. That’s why an online boutique recently opened and offers a selection of inexpensive brands which are made from natural ingredients and paraben-free. Both qualities I look for especially for products I use daily.

Aside from selling inexpensive but good quality products, this site helps encourage an advocacy for Oriental brands particularly from the Philippines, Korea and Japan.

They have a range of pretty eye shadows, lipsticks and effective skin care that you can build a collection, maintain or enhance beauty/wellness without spending a fortune!

Korean Makeup

2 years ago when I discovered Korean makeup and skin care product thru a friend of mine who’s been using it and swears by it. And yasss she is right! Their products are simple but straightforward. The packaging is cute with comical cartoons and very fun designs. Special mention – Korean Skin Care which is by far the most comprehensive and thorough. With it’s famous 10-step program or routine that can be adjusted according to your skin type. The following is the 10-step routine;

  1. makeup remover / oil cleanser
  2. water based cleanser
  3. exfoliation
  4. toner
  5. essence
  6. serum, booster or ampouls
  7. masks
  8. eye cream
  9. moisturizer
  10. sun protection (day time)

Even typing this program is exhilarating, but really they have the best (for me) beauty products and is less expensive than Western counterparts. What I like the most – it is made from natural ingredients and free from Parabens (unless indicated)

that’s it for today, see you next post 🙂
