Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Dear AMW friends, I'll stop talking about food for the first time on a Sunday because today marks the first day of October.  As we all know, October maybe known for the month of Halloween Parties, or maybe, 13th month pay to some?  Or, a month that signifies how close we are to Christmas?  Or beer drinkers out there --- Octoberfest?  

For me, October is BCA month!  Thanks to Beauty Blogging I get to learn all these campaigns and one of them is from the brand very close to my heart because this brand heeled my crazy skin when I started blogging --- Clinique.

As we all know, Breast Cancer is the most common cancer in women globally.  Thankfully, a beauty company Estee Lauder goes beyond physically beauty and approximately 150 million pink ribbons have now been distributed at the Estee Lauder Companies' beauty counters worldwide.  

This year is no different, but it is actually more iconic because The Campaign marks its 25th Anniversary #PinkRibbon25 (search them on Instagram for more information).   (Pink Ribbon 25 because 25 years ago, there was no Pink Ribbon,) 

With Kate Kathleen Reyes, Marketing Executive of Clinique Philippines.
I fondly call her my baby sister!

And what made this shoot even more fun?  When you do it with Blogger Friends who support the same cause as you!

If you want to do your part, visit any of the brands under The Estee Lauder Group and help support this cause and feel pretty at the same time!  Recently, all 3 brands Clinqiue, Estee Lauder and Bobbi Brown launched their easy-access at SM Mall of Asia Department Store.  Imagine, you don't need to jump from one Boutique to another, instead, you get all 3 of your favorite brands closer to you and you can experience trying out all their products in just ONE sitting!

And Bobbi Brown

 During the event, we were each given a blank face chart and obviously, the make up artist in me got a boost of energy!  I immediately picked all my favorite products from 3 brands, sat down and drew away.

Base: Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation
Brows: Bobbi Brown Brow pencils and powders.
Lips: Clinique 

I have to give a shoutout to their lovely Beauty Advisers who are extremely helpful, knowledgeable and friendly (hi Gio!)   

Before and After
I enjoyed using 2 foundation shades to create depth and also did a bit of gradient lips because...just because I like it!

Do you like to go to one boutique per brand or do you appreciate that they have all 3 brands closer to each other?

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
