When it comes to footwear, I usually get that “love at first sight”experience. Although comfort is very important, as I would always say, I never liked sacrificing style. Bottomline: As long as it’s comfortable and stylish, I go for it! I do not really consider the science of the footwear I buy and I’m quite sure most of you do not either. But do you know that poorly designed shoes can cause our feet to lose their natural alignment, which causes other problems in our bodies, such as heel, knee and back pains? Vionic, a fashion-forward footwear brand, aspires to change this by infusing science and style in each of its footwear.
To be honest, I do not really pay attention to dip eyeliners whenever I see them in makeup counters. It’s probably because of my not so good experiences in the past – hard to apply and uneven application. Besides, in this day and age, I think most of us are all used to pens and brushes. And then Maybelline Hyperink Liquid Liner launched… At the back of my mind, why?! But of course, as a beauty blogger, I had to try it. The last time I used a dip eyeliner was… I really don’t remember! It has been ages, I guess! So I gave this new Hyperink Liquid Liner a shot. Here’s my in-depth Maybelline Hyperink Liquid Liner Review:
I’ve been a fan of Wicked ever since I first watched it in London back in 2009. I can still remember how I laughed so hard and cried buckets of tears. Was I PMS-ing that time?! I can’t recall! All I know is that it’s one of my favorite plays I’ve seen. So just imagine my reaction when I received an invite for the MAC Greening event, a makeup session to demonstrate how to do Elphaba’s stage makeup and how to create a Wicked-inspired look. Of course, I said YES!
And to my surprise, Jacqueline Hughes and Carly Anderson, who portray Elphaba and Glinda in London, were the actual “models”!!! I died a little, you know! Haha! If you’re wondering, the stage makeup of all the actors in #WickedManila2017 were provided by MAC Cosmetics. Woot! Congratulations, MAC!
For the past months, I tend to choose flats/ sandals/ sneakers over heels. Yes, heels are sexy but I’ve come to accept that they’re not made for walking (and okay fine… age! LOL!). Besides, if you’ve been reading my blog, I’ve always preferred comfort over fashion – okay, make that 99.8% of the time. I’m giving that .2% for formal events. Haha! But as I would always say, you don’t really need to sacrifice fashion if you want to be comfortable. There are stylish options – just like the NEWEST Yosi Samra! I know… I know… Yosi Samra has been around for a while now, but let me reiterate the word “NEW” because there’s really something new to look forward to, which is why it’s Yosi Samra 2.0! 😉 And as mentioned in my previous post, here it is…
There are days when we want to cross the border between office and casual wear. Trust me, I totally understand. Well, who wouldn’t want to dress comfortably if you know you’ll be sitting on your office chair for 8 hours? This doesn’t mean you can look sloppy though. Here’s a suggested simple look.
