A beginner’s guide to makeup
If you’re new to makeup and the thought of experimenting with it intimidates you, let
Careline, the Filipina teen’s go-to cosmetic brand under Ever Bilena Cosmetics, help
you with these better than basic makeup tricks and tips for beginners in using its newest
products called Multi Sticks (P205):
Use your fingers. You can now set aside your brushes because the newest Multi
Sticks are created to build and blend easily! Apply each product in thin layers then
blend with the pads of your fingers (make sure to wash your hands first!), start from
center of your face and moving outwards. Using your own fingers to apply these
products gives you the most natural skin-like finish and doesn’t look cake-y throughout
the wear.
Combat shine and keep face smooth. Want to know the secret behind a polished
makeup look? It’s primer! Before applying your favorite foundation, tinted moisturizer or BB Cream, swipe on the Blur Stick all over the face to keep it smooth and oil-free. This
will also ensure that your makeup stays in place the whole day.
Hide blemishes. Whether you’re looking to conceal dark circles, large pores, age
spots, and other blemishes or you just want to highlight your facial features, the
Brighten Stick is the perfect product for that. After putting on your foundation, draw an
inverted triangle under the eye to mask dark circles and create an illusion that the face
is lifted. Pat it on skin using your ring finger so it’s evenly blended out.
Add definition to your face. Look fierce by adding definition to your face. With the
Contour Stick, draw a line along your temples, the hollows of your cheeks, jawline and
sides of the nose. Tap area of contour color with your fingers as it can be easily blended
into your foundation. Also, this stick has a cool undertone that mimics the natural
shadows of your face.
(Tip: The Contour Stick is also great as an eyeshadow color)
Brighten your face with pops of color. Add pops of color to the face using the Rose
and Peach Sticks. Both work as lipstick, blush, and eyeshadow. For a monochromatic
look, dab your preferred color all over the lids and apples of cheeks. Finish off the look
by swiping it on your lips.
Keep your glow on. Get the best healthy-looking glow on your face by applying the
Strobe Stick on the high points of your cheeks, the inner corners of the eyes, eyebrow
bone, bridge of your nose, Cupid ’s bow and chin. Voila! You’re ready to face the day!
Go ahead and experiment with makeup using Careline’s newest Multi Sticks available at
any Careline counters at leading supermarkets, drugstores, convenience stores and
department stores nationwide.

Korea’s premier online beauty shopping destination, Althea has provided the latest beauty trends, lifestyle and products to all of Southeast Asia’s beauty enthusiasts since 2015 at Malaysia by its founder Frank Kang, a serial entrepreneur and named it to Korea’s national flower.

“Did you know? Althea’s third official Southeast Asian country was the Philippines since 2016.”

Leading one-stop online K-beauty shop Althea, expanded to over 200 countries worldwide, has finally launched its very own line of products; one of which is to solve the mystery that comes in the Korean Skincare Routine. Many K-Beauty fans are overwhelmed, fazed and confused on the specific steps and procedures to complete the Korean skincare routine and that includes yours truly. Good thing, Hyeyoung Park, Head of Althea Brand thought about unravelling the secret and to, at last, share the proper way of doing it without a sweat! In the beauty industry, sharing is caring!

Appreciate other’s beauty without questioning yours.

10 different products to use in one sitting is overwhelming – and that’s an understatement most especially for beginners who wants to adopt the worldwide famous Korean beauty – supple, soft and radiantly glowing. Althea strips down to the bare essentials with this new skincare line, rolling the 10-step Korean skincare into 3 easy-peasy steps through Althea’s Bare Essentials – your skin’s simply perfect saviour!

Althea shreds the routine into bare essentials with this new skincare line and yours truly had the opportunity to get the complete line for a try-out. What I like about this line, as mentioned above, was that it compressed the many products into just three easy steps. Minimum products, minimum application, minimum time for an eminence result. Althea’s Bare Essentials focuses on the skincare fundamentals and most essentials. It was thoughtfully crafted, it promises to give the benefits of the infamous 10-step Korean skincare routine, rolled into 3 quick method.

“We wanted to go back to the basics and really strip it all down to give the customers the most fundamental steps. From billions of data we’ve collected over 3 years, the most prominent fact is that a solid routine starts from 3 essential steps – cleansing, toning, and moisturizing. All the other additional steps added to your routine are just that, – additional”.

Althea Bare Essentials beauty hybrid products are pack with double punch, too; they’re products that nourish the skin while leaving it looking bright, glowing, and beautiful. With clean, minimal, yet effective formulas, these straightforward products epitomize simple perfection and deliver maximum results with minimum effort.

“We also believe that when one has great skin, it decreases the amount of makeup needed to create a perfect complexion, hence the phrase ‘your skin completes makeup’,” Hyeyoung adds.

29790232_1715696471806939_7209185489872961854_n.jpgThe Bare Essentials range consists of three hypoallergenic products suitable for any skin types

 

The Contour Cleanser 150g Php 300.00 Packed with soothing Ice Plant and detoxifying Lemon Myrtle extracts, this cleanser is densely filled with micro capsules that burst upon contact with water to gently cleanse, exfoliate, and detoxify skin. The Contour Cleanser helps to promote blood circulation, and reduces bloating and swelling for a defined, enviably slim face shape.

First whiff of this product brought me to a café serving lemon pie. A hint of this sweet-sour smell is enough to make me salivate, I stop myself from licking the viscous bit. Wet the face and massage it in circular motion. I can feel the micro capsules bursting and melting, scourging for dirt, dead skin cells, and oil; it left my face clean, but not itchy dry.

The Primer Water 200ml Php 550.00 Both a hydrating toner and a primer in one, the Primer Water contains patented dewdrop technology (Macro Fluidic Dispersion technology) that gently fills the gaps between pores and allows hydration to penetrate deep within the layers of the skin. Made with Snow Lotus extracts, this skincare heavy hitter has an incredibly smooth and silky texture that enhances the skin’s natural glow, leaving you with the perfect canvas.

Being a toner and a primer in one product, makes it friendly to my makeup budget, and beauty routine quicker as well. It felt a bit cold to the touch but it glides on smoothly to my face and neck area. It will took a little while to dry as the formula is a bit viscous, and while letting it dry, I could imagine it being absorbed by my skin, leaving the surface glow and even.

The Fixer Cream 50g Php 640.00 This non-oily, quick-absorbing formula harnesses the power of Trehalose, an ingredient found in the cactus plant that prevents its moisture loss, to provide the skin with 24-hour hydration. This ultra-nourishing wonder cream is also rich in antioxidants derived from Camellia Sinensis (green tea) seed oil, and helps to promote collagen regeneration using Baobab Tree extracts. Upon application, your skin is left looking great and feeling bouncy to the touch.

It has a hint but not lingering smell of green tea; for tropical country like the Philippines, a pea size of this fixer cream could go a long way – entire face and neck. Soft to touch, hydrated skin without the sticky tacky feel.

With all 3 products are available for purchase under Php 1500, and made with only the best ingredients, it’s no surprise that the Bare Essentials line caused quite the craze in the beauty world.

#GerifiedPH: Beauty for a Better Life

If you would have to choose, is it beauty over brains? Or vice versa? Some smarty pants which definitely includes yours truly would question and argue, why not have both?

Beauty is good. Beauty with brains? Even better! I mean, every girl has her own unique beauty that we shouldn’t compare to others in the first place, but let’s face it, we ourselves can become more confident when wearing our natural crowns adorned; and by brains, I’m referring more to the possibility of being streetwise in making decisions and earning financial freedom with independence albeit I’m confidence as well that there’re ladies out there who are both brainy genius and pleasant to the eyes!

#GerifiedPH: De-age yourself with Celeteque!

Which do you prefer beauty or brains?2.jpg

We can’t have everything, but with the help of Celeteque we can have both the beauty and the brains!

Hosted by Ms. Bianca Valerio, Celeteque launched something that is beautiful and timeless – the Celeteque Advanced Anti-Aging line! The Mozaic Living was filled with beauty and skincare enthusiasts and media friends who gather around to see what ageless is all about.

An in-depth discussion about fighting the signs of aging with Celeteque’s very own dermatologist, Dra. Heidi Chan and how Celeteque gives the specific solutions based on your skin type! Apparently, yes, knowing your skin type is crucial in fighting the visible sign of aging!

Aging is a natural process that determines the length of a living thing’s existence extending to the beginning to any given period of time. In humans, aging can be visibly seen through the largest organ of the body, the skin. It is a dynamic organ that shows the most obvious sign of ageing because of the fact that it is under direct contact to the environment – also known as the wear and tear effect. Although we cannot stop aging and there are many factors that we cannot control or do anything about, there are those that we could delay. The one that we couldn’t stop is the Intrinsic Ageing which is the chronological aging that is genetically determined and a continuous process even for photo-protected skin. The one that we could do something about is the Extrisic Ageing – this is the environment-induced factors, usually most influential but definitely controllable such as exposure to the UV light or direct sunlight and cigarette smoking.

Dra. Heida Chan differentiate the aging in 20s, 30s and 40s. Read more. Continue reading “#GerifiedPH: De-age yourself with Celeteque!”

Nailaholics: Great Argan Sale Year 2

Dryness is next to ugliness! Good thing, Nailaholics is having another great argan sale for the second time around!

24282092_1543156892400366_479830512_n.jpgFor a lot of people, the end of the year is when their skin gets the most attention. In part, it’s because as the year winds down to a close, the promise to make an effort to take better care of your skin becomes a big part of resolutions. But mostly because living in a tropical country during the most unpredictable season of the year, where the weather swings from sunny and humid to cold and wet in minutes, on top of all the sugar, alcohol and greasy holiday treats, can really wreak havoc on your skin.

Of course, eating healthy (a lot of greens, water, and fiber), getting enough sleep and a lot of exercise help. Unfortunately, the sason to be merry, jolly, and bright is just around the corner, and it will prove nearly impossible to say no to all the revelry. So here’s a helpful insider tip: argan oil.

Drawn from trees that grow in the southern region of Morocco, argan oil is a rich blend of antioxidants, vitamin A and E, polyunsaturated fat, and essential fatty acid. It’s literally food for hair and skin, eases inflammation, and gives it a boost of moisture from within that lends itself to an inner glow—the hallmark of healthy skin.

The great news is that you can get all the benefits of argan oil can from just mixing a few drops of argan oil into your trusty, go-to beauty products or by directly applying it onto your skin. This makes it a very versatile addition to your beauty routine.

That said, here’s an even better insider tip that is just in time for the holidays: you can get a free 50 ml bottle for every purchase of one 100 ml Argan Oil bottle at any Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa branch.

Each 100 ml argan oil bottle is priced at Php 1,390. Now you get to take home more with the Great Argan Sale, giving you a savings of Php 790 which is the original price of your free 50 ml argan oil bottle.

It’s a small price to pay for a product that can serve as your night time moisturizer, a skin toner, makeup remover, whole body moiturizer, leave-in hair conditioner and can also be a cure for acne, stretchmarks and razor bumps and burns.

“It’s important to note though that you get the real deal. So be sure to get it from somewhere that has a longstanding reputation of reliability and quality. It’s the concentration of argan oil that allows you to receive all its benefits, so make sure you’re getting it from a brand that can be trusted when they say that they are giving you a bottle with no artificial preservatives,” shares Lorraine Baterina, Brand Manager of Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa.

There’s a lot of benefit in just one bottle, so what are you waiting for? Head over to the nearest Nailaholics! This exclusive promotion runs only from November 28 to Dec 12, 2017.
