More on Cirque du Soleil Makeup

After watching Cirque du Soleil’s Varekai here in Manila, I am simply awed and inspired by this group. For me, they are a perfect example of excellence. Everything they do, from the dances and acrobatics to their costumes and makeup, are very well thought of, it’s obvious that they dedicated time and practice to perfect every detail. As a dancer myself, I can just imagine the grueling hours they’ve put in in coming up with such an elaborate show.READ MORE

Quality Makeup Brushes Below P200 At Landmark

I always hear girls complain to me that makeup brushes are so darn expensive. Yes, it’s true that you really have to invest  in quality makeup brushes so you could apply makeup well, but quality doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. That’s why I’m always on the hunt for affordable products, to prove to these girls that makeup doesn’t necessarily have to be expensive.READ MORE

LANEIGE Makeup Workshop Series

I first heard of Laneige back in 2008 through a Hongkonger (Hongkongese? Hongers? Honkies? What do you call people who live in Hongkong anyway?) classmate in Makeup Designory New York. My classmates and I all envied her skin because it’s unbelievably smooth and poreless. When I asked her what brand of skin care she uses, she said Laneige. I made a mental note to try it out, but since it’s not available in the Philippines back then, I completely forgot all about it. So when I saw this Korean brand open in Trinoma late 2009, it brought back memories of my classmate and her to die for skin. She even resembles their endorser, Song Hye Kyo!READ MORE

Cirque du Soleil Makeup for Varekai

I recently saw Cirque du Soleil perform Varekai in Manila last week with my family (thank you Mom and Dad for the free tickets!), and the show was simply breathtaking. Literally. You would hold your breath as the performers do their death-defying and back-breaking acrobatics, and the audience would collectively heave a sigh of relief and clap and whoop as they land safely on the ground. Another breathtaking thing to note though is their makeup, which is as theatric as their outlandish costumes.READ MORE

MAC Violetta

One of the advantages of teaching Personal Makeup classes in Makeup Designory Manila is that I get to discover new makeup trends/brands through my students. During my class 2 weeks ago, one of my students, Analyn, whipped out MAC Violetta lipstick, a red-based purple shade that looks intimidating and unwearable at first glance.READ MORE
