Work Make Up

Hi, hi! The reason why I haven't been posting (again!) is because I still cant manage my time. It's been more or less 6 months since I started working full time again, and to be honest, I am still not used to it. With the job, I'm all good, but with managing my time after work hours, that is where I am having problems with.

Why did I start my blog blabbing about my lack of time management skills? Haha! This is so not what I wanted to blog. Soooo, just like what the title says, this blog is bout my make up when I go to work. Stop. Go and blog about make up!

I'm not really experimental with make up. I mean, I already mentioned the lack of time management, and since I am no pro, it will take me so much time to try and experiment with new look for work. My work make up is usually just neutral eyeshadow, brow, liner, blush and lipstick!

Sorry, blog friends, I was not able to clean the babies before I took the photo. I couldn't wait any longer because I had the momentum that day. If I delayed it, I don't think I would be able to finish putting on make up and taking photos for this blog. I know it's not like I took a lot of (great) photos, but I hope you understand. lol

When I wake up 2 hours before my shift starts, I will be able to do my face like this. Like what I have mentioned earlier, I go for a very simple look because 1) I don't know much about putting on make up and 2) I've got no time to do something more complicated than this.

Here's a closer look on what I did. I'm thinking of making a separate blog about the Deborah Milano. The Mat03-Atomic Red lipstick is my first from that brand and I like it! The color is really pretty and it's a very nice everyday lipstick!

The chubby fez says hello! I am still struggling on losing weight. It's so difficult. :/ Well anyway, I'm happy naman, I just miss wearing my old clothes. I miss wearing sleeveless without having to feel like I need to wear cardigan. HAHA.

I'll talk to you again soon! :*

I actually tried this Fashion21 Double Uo Mascara because the beauty bloggers raved abt this so much! And this deserves all the good reviews. 👍

I do the same thing. I have to leave my house really early to beat the rush hour and arrive to work on time. And because of that I ain't got no time to experiment. Neutrals will always be the safest color for work. And also, I think this is the most appropriate so you look professional and serious about your job (unless you work in a creative environment). Lovely look girl! :)

I have a hate and love relationship with nude make up..hahaha laki ng issue ko dito!

basically I only use nude make up if I had a good rest which means longer sleep...hahaha...di kaya dalhin ng face ko.

So for now, I love mac heroine and rebel they the need for blush on or kilay that perfect..lipstick gora na dahil lagi ako kulang ng tulog:) hahaha:)

Rebel is one of my go to lipstick, especially if I dont have much time to do my eyes. Bb cream + powder and Rebel are life savers!

Magalawa Island in Zambales - 2016

To kick off Philippines' Summer 2016, we headed to Magalawa Island in Palauig, Zambales. Travel time from Manila is more or less 5 hours, depending on your stop overs if you go there by a private car. Boat ride to Magalawa was quick. I think it was between 10-15 minutes.
I did my research before going to the island. And yes, I have read about the feud between the two resorts in the island, Armada and Ruiz. The person in charge for reservation first inquired at Armada but they were fully booked already.  Since I did my research, I knew that I shouldn't expect much. I was looking forward to it, but definitely, I had my expectations set!
So, we arrived at Ruiz, the staff are really nice. People are really helpful and kind. As for the shoreline at resort, I was not disappointed because, like what I have said, I knew what we're going to see. It would have been really better if there were no seaweeds. The water is really clear but the seaweeds are really annoying!  I enjoyed st…

The Neutrals & Nudes (MAC Siss, Yash, Mocha, Taupe)

I took these photos of the lipsticks months ago, but apparently, I would always end up not posting it. Here I am again, drafting an entry but unlike last time, this is not going to be a failed attempt! So let's start!
Lipsticks are my favorite make up! It's the easiest to apply, the most convenient to bring and that make up that can easily give you a transformation from daytime to night time look! My make up kit which I bring to work everyday has a lot of lipsticks in it. I do not even know why I carry a lot of lipstick with me always, but that's how girls are! We bring all the make ups that we can (or is it just me?)!
These are four of the liptsicks that I tend to carry with me everyday. Well, I do not change lipstick every 3 hours, but I like bringing them because I love mixing them lippies! :D

LA Matte Pigment Gloss - Fleur

I think I have mentioned a lot of times how I am a matte kind of girl. I have been seeing a lot of people posting and raving about the LA Matte Pigment for more or less a year now. I was really hesitant to try it because I had an impression that it would be like the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams which I didn't really like.
What made me decide to finally give it a try is when I saw one of my officemates wearing it. It looked really pigmented and I noticed how it has a long lasting effect! There is a stall near my work place which sells the brand so I bought one. I forgot how much exactly did I but it for, but I'm sure it's not more than 350php.

I decided to get Fleur. I was initially thinking of getting Dreamy because I loved it so much when I swatched it but I got talked into getting Fleur because the staff told me that it looks better on me! Lol.
It's really pigmented and I can vouch for its staying power! It doesn't have a weird smell, too so plus points again! It&#…
