Night-outs, social gatherings, awaited reunions—it's surely going to be a blast this year, go claim it! Before anything else, though, you might want to take a look at what our favorite beauty brands have in helping you become your most glam all year long!
Over at the Zalora Fashion Night Out 2017, models and celebrities like Tricia Centenera, Janeena Chan, and Maxene Magalona got all glammed up thanks to Bobby Carlos and the talented makeup artists of Max Factor. The girls rocked what the beauty brand calls the “Never Ending Party Look”—an illuminated face complemented by deep red lips and smoky brown eyes.
There are lot of hairstyles out there. And perhaps the last thing you want is to be caught with the same coif at your next party or reunion for 2018. But if you lack the time to learn each and every one of them, you can still save yourself from a bad hair day with a good brush. Aside from shampoo and conditioner, its important to have a brush that won’t damage your hair as you style it. Denman, now on its 80th year, offers a variety of brushes that make styling so much easier. Take it from the country’s top hair gurus like Lourd Ramos, Anton Papa, and Jonathan Velasco—they don’t call Denman the “hairdresser’s brush” for nothing!
Need a makeup look thats natural (and not overdone)? Color correcting, the trend that has taken the beauty world by storm, may be the solution to your problem! Make Up Factory can help you achieve the classic “no make-up make-up” look with its new four-product, four-step Balance Colors collection. How does it work? First, apply the Ultrabalance Color Correcting Base as your primer. Second, put on Ultrabalance Color Correcting Concealer to even your skin tone and cover even the smallest imperfections. Then, apply foundation and/or powder and blend it using the Make Up Factory Brush. Lastly, dab on some Ultrabalance Color Correcting Powder. After this, you’re good to go!
It’s common for beauty brands to encourage you to be #extra during special occasions. However, not everyone is used to wearing heavy make-up. Covergirl brings back the simple and natural look this season with their Clean Matte Collection. It includes a Clean Matte Liquid Foundation that, with five colors to choose from, will definitely help you achieve that picture-perfect matte look without over-drying your skin. Adding to this is the Clean Matte BB Cream, which has an oil-free formula to even out your skin tone with just the perfect amount of natural and clean coverage. For the final touch, use their Clean Matte Pressed Powder!
New Year is all about metallics. Be a head turner this time around with the all-new #Mattalic collection by BeYu! Included are Mattalic Lips liquid lip cream, Metallic Eyes metallic shimmer liquid eye shadow, and a Matt Liner that give your eyes and lips just the right amount of glitter.
Admit it, guys. We often get so excited to open new beauty buys that we forget about the trash we produce in the process. LUSH, however, found ways to reduce waste in their cosmetics that, in effect, minimize the potential environmental damage. More specifically, LUSH cut back on the amount of plastic typically used in packaging their products. Their Knot Wraps, for instance, consist of reusable fabrics that can wrap presents of any size. Moreover, 80% of the stuff from their “Naked Line” are sold in solid form, making them both eco-friendly and self-preserving!
Stressful days are bound to happen now that the holiday break is over. Going on a spa regularly to make your face feel relaxed can be quite expensive and not everyone has the time to do it. Luckily, L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Mask Detoxify came just in time to save our lives, or rather, our faces! Whether you need to submit requirements or finish projects, this baby will help #ClayYourWay out of tired, dull-looking skin.
Where’s the Buzz?
You deserve better this 2018. That said, Kiehl’s decided to reformulate the cult favorite Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate to include more Vitamin C plus Hyaluronic Acid! So, make sure to grab your own new and improved anti-aging serum at any of their stores in Greenbelt 5, SM Mall of Asia, SM Makati, SM Megamall, SM North Edsa, Trinoma, UP Town Center.
