MAKE UP FOR EVER has been known for their HD line ever since they launched it. And to stay in line with the latest 4K-technology, in which the smallest details are magnified, MAKE UP FOR EVER’s innovations in HD product development have now taken the ULTRA HD franchise one step further, to address very specific and essential cinema needs: skin perfection and finishing. There are 3 steps in the ULTRA HD routine to create a look of perfection. Together with the new MAKE UP FOR EVER ULTRA HD products, I was introduced to these 3 steps. Step 1: PREP MAKE UP FOR EVER ULTRA HD Skin Booster (PHP 2,250) “Even with the best foundation products, the results are never as optimal if you fail to prep your skin. The healthier the skin looks, the better it looks on screen” – Dany Sanz, Founder and Artistic Director of MAKE UP FOR EVER MAKE UP FOR EVER completes the ULTRA HD routine with another pro secret that boosts and revives tired skin on sets. The MAKE UP FOR EVER ULTRA HD Skin Booster is a hydra-plumping serum that works to boost skin radiance and luminosity. It moisturizes, plumps, and smoothes skin. The makeup artist tried it on my clean, bare face and it’s actually very light! The serum was easily absorbed by my skin since it’s water-based. She also explained to me that when...

Complete Your Look With One Makeup Product #IbaTalagaPagKumpleto

If there’s one makeup product to make a look “complete”, what could it be? Well, this is definitely debatable and very subjective. To be honest, choosing just one product can be very difficult. If you ask me, I’d go for at least 3 makeup products: powder foundation, lip and cheek tint, and brow product. I can even attend an event with just these on my face. But of course, there are days (especially on weekends) when I try to avoid makeup – except one. What could be this one makeup product that I can’t live without? Some would say lipstick. Others would go for a lip and cheek tint since it’s already a dual purpose product. If you asked me a few years ago, I probably answered concealer. I learned to love my skin and all its flaws now, so I can actually go out of the house with just sunblock and… a brow product! Why? Here’s K-Palette’s newest Lasting 3Way Eyebrow Pencil in 4 different shades. It’s a product with pencil, powder and a spoolie! Well, I can moisturize my lips using a moisturizer. Yup, you can do that! Although a lipstick or a lip and cheek tint can add “flush” to your face, I just feel it’s not enough if you don’t have well-groomed brows. Of course, if you’re not so comfortable with your skin, foundation or concealer...

OOTD: Trench Vest

The tita was out last weekend! LOL! And this is what I decided to wear at the party. Ooops… minus the sandals! Since I went to the mall first, I changed to a more comfortable (yet stylish) pair. I went for an all black outfit – obviously! I don’t think I have much colors in my wardrobe. If you haven’t noticed, black and white have always been my thing. But since I went to the mall first, I had to throw in a cover up. I’m too shy to walk around in cropped top. Haha! I wore a long trench vest, which you’ve probably been seeing a lot in the fashion world. I super love wearing light trench coats, which is why fall has always been my favorite season – well of course, that’s aside from the romantic colors of fall! Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately), we only have 2 seasons here in the Philippines. Wearing a long trench, even in the office, can look (and feel) a bit too warm for me. Thank goodness long trench vests are here!!! It can be worn in so many ways! Top: from an online store (sorry can’t remember!) Skirt: ForMe Sandals: AereShoes.com Bag: Chanel Bracelet: Balenciaga And now let’s move on to my makeup… Since it was a night event, I went for subtle smoky eyes. I chose to go for neutral...

M.A.C. Star Trek Collection + Swatch + Makeup Look

If you’ve been following my blog or Instagram (@lush_angel) for quite some time now, you’ve probably noticed my go-to makeup look – that’s natural or the no-makeup makeup look. I go for smoky or darker shades for night outs or special occasions. But I guess I won’t be a beauty blogger if I don’t like playing with colors and various finishes too, right? This is why I couldn’t help but get curious the moment I saw the newest M.A.C. Star Trek Collection. Well, who wouldn’t?! Imagine a sci-fi saga translated to a makeup collection… that must be awesome! Spanning half a century, Star Trek and its loyal fans cross generations, influencing ideas and aesthetics of gender, race and intergalactic potential. As the sci-fi saga continues, delight in the beauty of exploration as M·A·C and Star Trek’s latest cinema generation join forces in an exclusive makeup collaboration of cosmically charged hues.
