My Halloween Makeup Tutorials 

It’s fun time! Halloween is a very playful time to do some tutorials. 

The first look I did was a simple version of La Muerte. A  Spanish Lady of the Holy Death. 

If you wanna watch it here’s the link. Just click it ->

All the products are included on the description box 😊

And here’s the second one.

I chose this for my second Halloween tutorial because the first one is a little bit scary for my kids. It’s a Leopard Inspired Makeup Tutorial.

If you wanna try this look don’t be hesitant because it’s easy. You can do it as well! Here’s the link below for this tutorial.

Hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did!

Halloween🎃2016

The most awaited season of October! My kids are always super excited for Halloween. Maybe because they have a chance to become what they want to be kahit na just for one day lang. And maybe because of the sweet treats  na rin. 

This is my little Girl wearing my DIY Maleficent costume. She really loved it even though the horn is a little bit heavy. Her kuya naman is wearing his last year’s Halloween costume, Superman.

We started this western tradition here in our place in Maragondon Cavite last 2014. My eldest son gave me an idea. He asked me bakit daw hindi sila nag trick or treat. So since no one is doing trick or treating here, we tried it and other kids from the neighborhood already followed us from doing it every year. And I’m glad we started that tradition here. 

So how bout you what’s your Halloween🎃tradition?

My Updated Skin Care Routine (Taglish)

 

Little ThingsHi!  I will share to you my updated skin care routine!

A little fact about me is that, I really have an oily face! As in super oily!
Pero may time din na dry yung skin ko. Siguro depends on the weather din yun.

13931484_1228091757223006_1182631264_o

So for my Facial wash I’m curently using Natural Fairness Face Wash
I’ve been using this for 2 weeks already and napansin ko na mas naging soft and supple yung skin ko.
Chaka matipid din sya gamitin kasi kahit small amount lang ilagay ko enough na para macover or malagyan yung buong face ko.
Then I really love the smell! Super mild lang ng amoy nya parang baby ung amoy na diko maexplain 😀 point is, hindi
matapang/mabaho ung amoy nya.
I dont really know the price nito kasi padala lang to sakin ng sis ko galing abroad. So i have no idea! hehe
ayun then after washing my face, I used Nivea Natural Fairness Day Care cream. It’s in a small 50 ml tub container.
Yung consistency
nya parang sa regular cream lang din. What I love about this, hindi lang sya pampaputi or pampalambot ng face, moisturizer din sya
pero yung wow factor nya is hindi sya nagooily sa skin. I think after 5-10 minutes mo sya inapply sa face mo
nagmamattify sya. So plus point un sakin since I have oily face.

So ung nabanggit ko kanina yung Nivea Natural Fairness Facial Wash and Day Care cream yun ung ginagamit ko sa morning.
Punta naman tayo sa night facial routine ko.. Sa gabi gumagamit ako ng Ponds Acne Clear White Solution that fights 10 oily
and acne problems. Sa night ko lang sya ginagamit kasi pag facial scrub lagi ko gamit nagdadry masyado ung face ko.
Etong Ponds Acne Clear
matagal kona ginagamit and for me effective talaga to avoid acne problems. Tapos after ng scrub
magwash ulit ako ng Nivea Facial Wash then apply naman ako ng rejuvinating cream ng Dr. Alvin’s.

Ginagamit ko ung REJUVINATING CREAM NG dR. ALVINS SA GABI LNG KASI MEJO THICK UNG CONSISTENCY NYA KAYA PARANG MAINIT SA FACE
NAGBABATIK BATIK TALAGA UNG PAWIS SA MUKHA KO PAG SA MORNING KO SYA GINAMIT ESP PAG SUPER INIT.
PERO UNG EFFECT NYA SA FACE KO SUPER NAGUSTUHAN KO KASI MAGALING MAGPAPUTI BASTA MAGANDA EFFECT NYA SA SKIN KO
(PERO GUYS BEFORE USING ANY SKIN CARE PRODUCT ALWAYS REMEMBER TO DO A SKIN TEST FIRST SA HANDS NYO BEFORE SA FACE)
KASI MAMAYA HIYANG SA IBA PERO SAU DI MAGWORK BAKA MADAMAGE PA YUNG SKIN NYO. SO ALWAYS DO SKIN TESTING

AND THATS IT! Thanks!

2016 Cebu Vacay

Summer is my favorite season! I just love being under the sun, swimming, walking in the sand, and just having fun with my loved ones especially my kids! They really love swimming too and making sand castles! They love exploring sea creatures like star fish, crabs, baby jellyfish and small fish! 

And now we are back here in Cebu! we really can’t wait to explore Cebu again! The queen city of the south is just to beautiful!!! I fell in love with this place the moment I first went here! 

The food here is amazingly delicious too! Especially their Lechon!!! I really love it! Plus their unique rice, wrapped in banana leaves! Perfect for summer outing! Buy some lechon and Puso (rice wrapped in banana leaves) and your good to go!

These moments are the ones I really treasure because we’re all having fun, everyone’s having a good time! Just makes me feel happy! Only proves that some things in this world that can’t be bought! And for that, I really thank God for these precious moments!

MeNow Pro Powder Matte Kiss Proof Soft Lipstick Review

Product Claims

12669354_1104676569564526_660511915_o

FAST FACTS

When I tried this lipstick it really transpire the color of each shade. It has this matte finish and very pigmented and opaque on the lips. However whilst applying them on my lips, I initially did feel that they are slightly drying.

The Packaging

Came with a small simple box with all the details and descriptions. It has also a small hole on the side of the box so you can see what shade it is. Inside it has also a a small handbill bout the product and how to apply it. The box also shows the manufacturing date and expiration date as well.

Application 

It is a colored pencil-like lipstick that needs a big sharpener. I just wish it was a twist-up tube. The cap has good grip in permanent bullet type so you do not need to worry about getting it loose and smearing the lipstick all around. And you should apply it quickly, otherwise it will not look even.

VERDICT

Pros:

  • Very affordable at P150.00 each
  •  Beautiful shades that is easy to wear.
  • Glides easily on to the lips.
  •  It does not settle in fine lines.
  • Long Lasting
  • Highly Pigmented.
  • The cap has color coding
  • It really has this matte or velvet finish
  • Caps fits perfectly so no need to worry that it will come off inside your pouch.

Cons:

  • Colored pencil-like lipstick (for me I prefer twist-up tube)
  • It has pungent smell
  • Slightly drying/cracks overtime
  • It would be very easy if we do not have to sharpen it regularly.

Where to buy?

Actually I bought this from my sister-in-law’s officemate. Here’s the link:

 https://web.facebook.com/Alida-Line-222990171376417/?pnref=story&__mref=message_bubble

She sells it for P150 EACH. But I saw some other seller on IG which is way cheaper like for only P120 each. So you might want to browse for other online store for much cheaper one.

THAT’S IT! HOPE THIS REVIEW ON MN PRO KISS PROOF LIPSTICK DID HELP YOU LADIES OUT THERE! GOD BLESS!

What is the only Permanent in this world?

Have you ever think, is there any permanent in this world? If yes, then what is it?

Sometimes I tend to zone out, and the first thing that pops out in my mind is that, I really, really wish I would have enough time to do everything I wanted. Three of those things is that, I will have sufficient amount of time to be with my love ones, the second is to fulfill my dream to be a successful writer, makeup artist, and painter, and the third is to travel the world.

It’s a really competitive world out there. Sometimes we’re on top, sometimes we’re at the bottom. Struggles will always be there, and the key to being happy or successful is, on how you cope up and move forward.

When I was a kindergarten, and I was in school, I remember, that when I saw my mom leaving, I tend to cry. I really don’t like it when my mom leaves me after she sends me to school because one of my girl classmates is a bully. She always pinched me whenever she comes near me. I don’t know what her reason, but I was so scared of her that I never told my teacher about it or even my mom. So I grew up like that, I don’t really like it when my mom or dad is away from me. Maybe because they never told me to be independent. My mom always does the chores and everything. All I have to do is eat, go to school, play, watch TV and sleep. I never realize how hard it is when I was in my college days after my graduation, I had a major “change” in my life. Change that really shocked me. I got pregnant with my long-distance boyfriend after my graduation. So I never got the chance to pursue my career, because I was having my first baby. So part of that prostration is that after knowing I was pregnant, our parents decided for moral actions. We got married at the age of 19 years old. And it only means that I won’t be living with my parents anymore. That “change” really affects me a lot. Imagine I grew up, they were always at my side, at home or at school, or even in malls, then suddenly I was living my own life without them near me. I was so emotional after our wedding because when I saw my parents leaving me here at my in-laws, I really felt alone for some reason(s). Maybe because it really happened so fast. But I never regret anything that happened to me in the past. Because it made me stronger and happier. I am blessed with a good, faithful, responsible, funny and loving man, plus beautiful and smart babies.

So for me the only permanent in this world is ramadan-a-chance-for-change-2.jpg.

And it’s inevitable. So all you have to do is sit back, relax, and let God take the wheel. Everything that’s happening in our life is in God’s plan. And in God’s plan everything will be ok.
