New Kanebo Autumn Look


I love creating looks based from the makeup products I am using.  Today, I am showcasing Kanebo Autumn 2024 makeup with this look.

I love Kanebo Comfort Skin Foundation it is one of my favorite foundation find this year as it is comfortable enough to be worn daily.  It fits any sort of weather from very hot to humid —- see my choices there?

Making sure to hydrate my skin with a good skincare, you can definitely see the glow shining through.  Proof below.

I also love how they upgraded their eyeshadow quads.  This is their Colored Shadow in EPIC FRONTIER palette wich includes a nice taupe shade and a blue shade that works for warm complexion.

And don’t let me get started with the Kanebo N-Rouge Lipsticks, if you can get them all, please feel free to do so as these are the world’s most DRY -LIPPED friendly lip product.  It constantly hydrates my lips throughout the day and reapplying is like applying lip balm with loads of pigment.  

I am wearing BABY RED in this photo and it is so beautiful.

Smashbox Halo Sheer to Stay Color Tint in Terracotta Review


How do I love Smashbox?

In so many ways!  My first brush set ever was a WHITE synthetic brush haired Smashbox and it serves me pretty well it is still looking fab and wonderful even today. 

When I got my own Smahbox Halo Sheer to Stay Color Tint from my Sephora Haul.  I immediately tested it and will share a quick review as a dry-skinned gal.

Smashbox Halo Sheer to Stay Color Tint in Terracotta Review

Smashbox says —-

A primer-infused cream cheek and lip tint that gives you a flush of blendable and buildable matte color for a fresh, blurred look.

What it does:

This creamy multi-tasking formula puts sheer-to-medium coverage at your fingertips. Its powder-like matte finish refracts light to help create a blurred, soft-focus look. The lasting colour tint is also infused with a rich Primer Oil Complex for comfortable wear.

I personally felt scared to use a matte type of tint as I may end up with a big blob of unblended spot.  I have dry cheeks so. Most matte tints tend look uneven on me. 

After using this product for more than a month, I can say this is a great summer companion.

Terracotta is a bright warm orange shade that looks bright on tube but quite natural once blended.  This may look bright if you have really fair complexion and would appear really pretty on users with medium to darker complexion.

Though pigmented, it blends into the skin upon application naturally giving a nice natural glow.  

On lips, it looked a bit brighter than that on cheeks so I prefer using this on cheeks rather than lips.

Though I must say, color aside, the consistency of the product on cheeks and lips are both comfortable and it doesn’t sit on my lip lines!  Which is a super YES considering most matte lip products tend to dry out my already dry lips.

Fashion: All White with a touch of Hot Pink

 I remember seeing my mom in her 40's in pants ALL her life until the time of writing.  She is very conscious of her varicose veins and I wished she would wear more shorts and skirts because she has gorgeous legs!  Perfectly shapes, very flawless --- my sister and I would always tell her that she's got the best pair of legs among us - screw varicose veins but I cannot force my super conservative mom.

Growing up with that in mind, I have told myself I'd wear more shorts, skirts and expose my legs as much as I can before I end up having varicose veins!  I do have some on my feet but who cares right?  I am so grateful to be born in this era where Self-Love and Confidence is the best form of love for oneself.

That is such a long intro for just an outfit post *laughs*  I hope you accept my apology but #sorrynotsorry here :P  I randomly picked this outfit on a cooler weather when me and my husband headed out for a lunch date.  I wanted something comfortable and to protect myself when I tend to get cold inside an air-conditioned restaurant or mall and an outfit where I can easily remove my outer sweater when it gets hot.

Welcome to the Philippines - where our weather has an attitude! 

Shorts: Love Bonito
Pink Top: Shopee
White knit sweather: Lazada
Bag: Coccinele available via Zalora 

It is very important to invest on cute belts as it can create that old money vibe!

5-Minute Wavy Hair

How does having cute curls in less than 5 minutes sound to you?
Good? Impossible?

Possible for me  after this hack and of course, our timings could be different depending on the thickness of your hair and how good you are with sectioning hair and handling heat styling tools!  Key takeaway is to PRACTICE.  Because that is all the investment I did for my hair so I am used to styling my own hair even with eyes....almost CLOSED!  :P

All you need are hair ties, a flat iron and a whole lot of skills :P

A side profile on how C-curls help you look like you've spent an hour on your hair.  Also keep in mind the effect would be better with Layered hairs!
