If you’re subscribed to my YouTube videos or follow my Instagram, you’re probably familiar with my preference for glossy or velvety lippies over matte. It’s partly because I’m a K-beauty fan, and partly because my experience with matte lipstick is that it can make lips look dry and crusty up close. That is, until I tried the first whipped matte liquid lipstick of L’Oreal Paris.

Nothing beats a natural sun-kissed glow when it comes to beach makeup. But in lieu of bronzers and earth tones, time to try something new! Think bright summery colors and look to the sea itself for inspiration.
I’ve been thinking of doing a Lily Collins makeup tutorial for a while, and it couldn’t have come at a better time—her birthday is March 17th while mine’s March 20! Belle De Jour Beauty Editors were asked to recreate a celebrity look, and I of course chose Lily. She instantly became my #girlcrush when I saw her on Mirror, Mirror as the fairest of them all. Porcelain skin, red lips, and those gorgeous brows? She’s a real-life Snow White! The tutorial I created is very easy to follow, with only nine steps to help you recreate Lily Collins’ classic old-Hollywood beauty.
High school is a tricky time, especially around prom and graduation season. Personally, shopping for makeup was a trial-and-error process. I knew next to nothing about getting the right products for the look I want, let alone for my features. Now that I’ve got some makeup tricks up my sleeve, here are my prom makeup essentials to start you with.
I had a pro do my prom makeup. The handful of magazines available at the time had prom beauty editorials that didn’t really teach 15-year-olds much. Now though, you can find any makeup tutorial on YouTube and Pinterest. DIY makeup for prom or graduation isn’t just doable, it’s actually preferable if, like me, you don’t like it too heavy! Here are two easy-peasy looks you can do for your prom or graduation: romantic and smoky makeup.
Not since Marvin Agustin and Jolina Magdangal have I really been a fan of any other local loveteam until LizQuen. The few times I’ve caught Enrique Gil and/or Liza Soberano, on screen or in person, have convinced me that these two belong to an increasingly rare breed of Filipino celebrity: that which genuinely has what it takes. The most recent movie I watched with my family was their romantic dramedy Every Day I Love You. It was cute, and additionally cool because it’s set near our house in Negros and the cast spoke some Hiligaynon. Liza, especially, just lights up the screen with her childlike charm and radiant beauty. No surprise then, that Liza Soberano has just been chosen as the newest Filipina endorser of global makeup brand, Maybelline New York.
L’Oréal Paris and Watsons organized an exclusive and luxurious hair date with a select group of Filipina influencers. The invite couldn’t have come at a better time. From age 22 on, the only time my hair wasn’t some shade of red was in 2014 when I gave it a year’s rest. Just check out some of my hair color “adventures,” and imagine all the damage it had to withstand… – L’Oréal x Watsons Hair Color Party
