  1. Calyxta Holiday Popup: Time to Take a Beauty Break![et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.89"]

    The Holidays are most people's favorite time of the year. The parties, reunions, gifts, love, and cheer all over are what make this season oh so special. But like everything awesome, the Holiday rush, too, has a downside. Endless traffic jams and jam-packed malls are instant mood killers, especially when you're on a scavenger hunt for gifts for your favorite people (or yourself). Wouldn't it be fantastic if you could dodge the long queues at the department stores and have your shopping items come to you instead?

  2. What Makes Cosmetics Vegan-Friendly[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat"][et_pb_column type="2_3"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.89"]

    With the news that cosmetics brands like Hourglass and Kat Von D are going completely vegan*, you might be wondering what vegan products are. Isn't makeup safe from animal ingredients? Well, no. Take beeswax, for example, which is used for lip balm. Beeswax comes from bees. Another common ingredient is Carmine, which is a red dye made from crushed beetles' wings and is used to create highly pigmented lipsticks and blushes. Guanine is crushed fish scales that add shimmer to lipsticks and nail polish. Tallow, which is animal fat, is found in eye makeup, lipsticks, and foundations. Lanolin is grease that mammals excrete and is used in lipsticks and thick makeup removers. Collagen is a protein from animal tissue used in moisturizers, foundation, and lipstick to plump up skin.

    Lanolin


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.89"]

    There are many more common ingredients derived from animals that are found in cosmetics. But new makeup brands are now happy to say that these same ingredients can be replaced by plant-based substances. To switch to vegan cosmetics helps you, animals, and the environment in many ways. For example, Lanolin can clog pores and cause allergic reactions. The environment benefits because animal farms worsen climate change. If we can reduce animal farms (especially those used for cosmetic ingredients), we help the planet breathe better. Plus, fewer animals are hurt for your makeup!

  3. Things You Shouldn't Do When You Have a Zit[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.89"]

    As someone who has battled serious acne since my teens, I have a deep relationship with pimples. Now in my 40s, I know what to do and what not to do when an eruption appears on my skin. Today, I'll tell you what you should NOT do when you have a zit.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.89"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.89"] 1. Don't pop your pimple. [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.89"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/Dont-pop-your-pimple.x40925.jpg" _builder_version="3.0.89" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.89"]

    It is the temptation no one can resist! But resist it you must because when you pop that zit, bacteria will enter the wound and you're just asking for a bigger infection. When I have a pimple, I have learned to wait patiently for it to ripen and heal. If I can't wait because I have an event, then I go to the derma to deal with it. However, I'm no saint. There are times I simply can't resist squeezing that about-to-erupt volcano. When I do give in, I quickly disinfect the wound (try VMV ID Monolaurin Gel, P875) and then cover it with the bandage-like COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch, P200 for 24 patches.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.89"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.89"]

    The patch seals in the wound, preventing more bacteria from coming in and then draws out bacteria that did get in the wound. It also sucks out blood and pus. It sounds so gross but the next day, my pimple is flat and gone!

    Pimples may be caused by bacteria but that doesn't mean you should go overboard on your cleansing routine. Yes, exfoliation is great for preventing dead skin cells from clogging pores but if you use a scrub, you will only irritate inflamed skin even more. Instead, use a cleanser with salicylic acid, like the COSRX Salicylic Acid Daily Gentle Cleanser, P500. It will rid your skin of dirt and oil while gently sloughing off dead skin. Even better is a cleanser that has glycolic acid, too, like the Vichy 3-in-1 Cleanser, P995 which will also smoothen and brighten skin.

    3. Don't apply hot compress.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row custom_padding="16.75px|0px|16.75px|0px" _builder_version="3.0.89"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/eye-compress.x40925.jpg" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.89" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.89"]

    Remember: heat expands, cold contracts. If you apply a hot compress on your pimple, it will just get redder and more inflamed. I guess ice may help in constricting the blood vessels, but I haven't tried that. What I have tried is applying a pimple gel on top of the offending volcano. Depending on the ingredients (benzoyl peroxide and tea tree oil kill bacteria), the zit usually is healed quickly. Try Human Nature Acne Defense Solution Gel, P200.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.89"][et_pb_column type="2_3"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.89" custom_margin="20px|||"]

    Speaking of applying stuff on pimples, another don’t I must add to this list is “Don’t fall for pimple myths!” That means don’t apply toothpaste on your zit. Toothpaste is for teeth. Its tingly sensation makes you think it’s working but you’re just irritating the skin more.


    Another pimple myth is washing your face with your first ever menstrual blood will prevent acne. Well, I did this. First day of my period, my mother told me to wet my bloodied underwear and rub it all over my face. As I said in my first paragraph, I have battled with acne for decades so obviously this does not work!

    It’s not every day that you’ll get to encounter such pretty colors all at once, so why not make the most of your big day by going for bright rainbow colors that will surely get your special day popping? If you’re all for going big and bright, try pulling off this gorgeous rainbow-ombré eye look and bold gradient lip! For subtle accents, paint your nails in multicolored glam for that pretty hint of rainbow! Go the unconventional route by playing up your entourage in mismatched rainbow-colored gowns with matching bouquets to tie their looks together.

  6. The Calyxta Crew’s Dream Engagement Rings[et_pb_section fb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.89"]

    When you work in an office full of women (with most of us still single), it’s inevitable for us to talk about anything that relates to weddings---be it proposals, preparations, or the ceremony itself. Words like, “So and so got engaged the other day!” or “Did you see so and so’s wedding?!” are almost common to hear in the workplace, so I decided---why not ask the gorgeous ladies of Calyxta to share their dream engagement rings?


    Check out what they had to say!

    “Honestly, it's my first time to try looking up 'engagement ring' on Pinterest since I haven't really thought that far into my future yet. Among the many rings I saw, I was drawn to this cushion cut diamond ring the most. It just looks so elegant without being over the top.”

Now that the Holidays are just around the corner, you might be fretting about deciding which gift to give each member of your beloved squad that will perfectly fit their personality. Bulk buying one kind of gift and distributing them to everyone is the lazy girl's option (though if you're that type of girl, you might want to check out our stocking stuffers!). But of course, you'd want to give each one of them something that will put a genuine smile on their face and that they will actually use. Stress not because we've got your back, girl!

    She spends most of her time at the gym, at yoga, or doing all sorts of outdoor physical activities that provide the ultimate endorphin rush. Having a full face of makeup isn't really the most practical thing when she's perpetually on a sweat session, but having long lasting lippies that will withstand sweat would probably be your best bet. Give her the Lippie Lovin' Set (P1,299.00) with three shades of Colourpop Liquid Lippies to glam up her workouts!

  8. Fancy Faux: How to Apply Falsies[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    If your mascara just doesn't seem to cut it, opt for false eyelashes. They're a great way to sport lush and glam peepers in an instant.


    The mascara market is huge, and although there are tons of products that promise to extend, volumize, and darken your natural lashes, there still isn't anything quite like the allure of false eyelashes. The advantage of false eyelashes is that they're designed in such a way that they give you the lashes you've always fantasizes about---extra thick or winged at the outer



    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/shutterstock_73752763.x40925.jpg" _builder_version="3.0.86" custom_margin="|||" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    edges. Whatever it is that you fancy, there's a design out there for you.  Another great plus is that they're easy to remove at the end of the day. There's no need to go through cotton pads drenched in eye makeup remover. All you have to do is simply peel them off, and you're done!


    Perhaps the only con when using false eyelashes is that they can prove to be challenging when putting them on. Here are a few tips to help you get through this somewhat arduous task:



    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/1.x40925.jpg" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.86" max_width="93%" module_alignment="center" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    1. Using a handheld mirror on a table, prop your elbows up, and lean directly over the mirror. After you've picked out a pair of fab false lashes, such as those from Bohktoh's Starter Set, P420, prop your elbows on the table, and lean over the mirror. This positioning will steady shaky hands or arms and also give you a better look at what you're doing.



    [/et_pb_text][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/Bohktoh-Set.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/eyes/bohktoh-one-starter-set-3-styles/" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.86" /][et_pb_image _builder_version="3.0.86" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    2. False lashes tend to be straight when removed from their packaging, and this makes them more prone to lifting up, especially at the ends. Try wrapping them around the handle of a makeup brush to give the strips some curve. That way, they'll form to the shape of your eye more easily. We love Huda Beauty's False Lashes in Giselle #1, P1380 and Scarlett #8, P1680



    [/et_pb_text][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/Huda-Beauty-Classic-Lash-Scarlett-8.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/accessories/huda-beauty-classic-lash-scarlett-8/" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.86" max_width="90%" module_alignment="center" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/lashes.x40925.jpg" _builder_version="3.0.86" max_width="56%" module_alignment="center" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/4292e030-1d35-4e94-ad82-1f8cbde76d04.x40925.jpg" _builder_version="3.0.86" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    3. Applying glue directly into the lashes can be messy. Try squeezing some glue (Bohktoh's Eyelash Glue, P650) onto the tip of a cotton swab or a bobby pin, and then spread it evenly along the base of the strip. Then, wait a few seconds for the glue to get tacky (a bit thicker for more control), and apply. If you find it challenging to apply glue onto the lash strip, an easier alternative would be to trace your upper lash line with glue, letting it dry a few seconds until it's tacky, and then setting the lashes on top.



    [/et_pb_text][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/Bohktoh-Eyelash-Adhesive1-LRG-1.x40925.x40925.png" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/accessories/bohktoh-eyelash-glue/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.86" max_width="73%" module_alignment="center" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    4. For easier application, you can cut the lashes into several strips (halves or thirds), then to apply, start with the outer corners and work your way toward the inner corners. Another alternative would be to use individual lashes like Bohktoh's False Lashes, P200 which are much easier to grip, and can be strategically applied only where needed.

    5. After you've applied false lashes, use black liquid liner like Kat Von D's Tattoo Liner in Trooper, P1400 to blend the strip with your real lashes-this'll help camouflage any mistakes like glue marks or exposed skin at the lash line.

  9. Birds of Beauty[et_pb_section fb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.86" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    As we drew inspiration from one of her very own masterpieces to create this look, we see a more colorful side of Valerie Chua---one who is ready to take flight and conquer bigger territory.


    Recreate the look by following these steps:


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="1_3" _builder_version="3.0.86" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/Ellana-Blur-Makeup-Primer.x40925.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/ellana-blur-makeup-primer/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.86" align="center"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.86" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" custom_margin="20px|||"]

    1. Start off by making sure your base is flawless. Go with a matte primer for this look just like the ELLANA BLUR MAKEUP PRIMER, P599, which will keep your face shine-free all day.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.86" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" custom_margin="25px|||"]

    2. For a lightweight foundation that gives enough coverage, try the W7 GENIUS FOUNDATION, P499. Blend it well using a damp makeup sponge to create a flawless finish---as if you’re not wearing any foundation at all!


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_3" _builder_version="3.0.86" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/W7-Genius-Foundation-Buff.x40925.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/w7-genius-foundation/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.86" align="center"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="1_3" _builder_version="3.0.86" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/Glossier-Wowder.x40925.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/glossier-wowder/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.86" align="center"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.86" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    3. Set your foundation in to keep it from moving or caking throughout the day. Try the GLOSSIER WOWDER, P1,650, which also helps control oil while blurring the appearance of your pores.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.86" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" custom_margin="40px|||"]

    4. The star of this look is the gorgeous paint-like eye makeup that Sydney Hemsley, did on Valerie. Before starting, prep it by applying an eyeshadow primer such as the URBAN DECAY EYESHADOW PRIMER ANTI-AGING, P1,580, which delivers 24 hours of creaseless, vibrant eye color to really achieve the look you’re going for. Work the primer into the creases of your eyelid. One of the benefits of an eyeshadow primer is to fill the fine lines in your skin so that your shadows don’t settle into the creases.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_3" _builder_version="3.0.86" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/anti-aging.x40925.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/eyes/urban-decay-eyeshadow-primer-anti-aging/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.86" align="center"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="1_3" _builder_version="3.0.86" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/LOreal-Paris-La-Palette-Ombree-1000x1000.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/eyes/loreal-paris-la-palette-ombree/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.86" align="center"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.86" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" custom_margin="20px|||"]

    5. Don’t be afraid to play it up as you work on recreating this stunning eye look. Use a light hand to avoid dark and defined strokes to really achieve that paint-like touch to it. The purple, dark blue, and white shades of the L’OREAL PARIS LA PALETTE OMBREE, P800, can definitely help you get the look!


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.86" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" custom_margin="25px|||"]

    6. Achieve the faux freckles look by bringing out a waterproof, long-wear brow pencil or gel, just like the MILANI STAY PUT BROW COLOR, P500. Using an eyeliner brush, dot across your cheeks, the bridge of your nose, and between your brows. You can use either a beauty sponge or just your fingertip to blend it seamlessly. Don’t forget to blot it with translucent powder to properly set your faux freckles!


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_3" _builder_version="3.0.86" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/Milani-Stay-Put-Brow-Color-Dark-Brown.x40925.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/eyes/milani-stay-put-brow-color/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.86" align="center"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="1_3" _builder_version="3.0.86" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Colourpop-Clear-Brow-Boss-Gel.x40925.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/eyes/colourpop-clear-brow-boss-gel/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.86" align="center"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.86" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" custom_margin="30px|||"]

    7. Keep your brows bare and just use a clear brow gel to keep it groomed and clean. Try the COLOURPOP CLEAR BROW BOSS GEL, P450, and brush in the natural direction of your hair growth.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.86" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" custom_margin="25px|||"]

    8. As a finishing touch, trace your cupid’s bow with a golden highlighter such as the W7 GLOWCOMOTION, P449.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_3" _builder_version="3.0.86" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/W7-Glowcomotion.x40925.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/w7-glowcomotion/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.86" align="center"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.86" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

  10. Valerie Chua: Creative Block[et_pb_section fb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    Perhaps one of the biggest challenges that an artist goes through is overcoming a creative block. I myself have experienced countless writer's blocks that have hindered me from writing the visions and ideas I had in my head, where sometimes, the only way out is by leaving the story behind until I'm ready to write it again.


    But learning about how Valerie Chua overcomes her creative blocks opened my mind to the idea that I could probably do the same with my work, and that I should maybe try it sometime.


    While our first cover story talks about how she started as an artist, and our second cover story shows a more feminine side of our November #CalyxtaGirl, it was fascinating to learn more about her struggles as an artist, and how she deals with difficult clients and criticism in this week's cover story.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    What's the biggest struggle you've ever faced as an artist?


    I think that time when I transitioned from watercolor to oil. My mentor would tell me that my watercolor style could easily be done by other artists. At first, I tried to transition my watercolor work into the oil painting work. I had to think of something that was different---something that no one else does. Which is the reason why I didn't carry over my style for watercolor painting to oil painting.


    Can you share with us the difference between watercolor and oil painting?


    Watercolor is very transparent. Usually, you can't control the paint. So when you do your strokes, it spreads out. Oil, on the other hand, is very controlling; very viscous. You can modify it. It takes a long while to dry. Watercolor, after a few minutes, it dries up. So if you make a mistake, it's harder to fix it. For me, that was the hardest hurdle. Because if it's commissioned work, it's very short-term. It's a short-term hurdle---you just have to deliver the work and it's done. But you also have to think about the future. You have to think about the long-term-- how it would all look like in the long run. Things like that. I have to think on a grander scale. That time I was asked by Graphica Manila to give a talk, I had a hard time because I was talking about illustration but at the back of my mind, I knew I'd have to leave my illustration works in the next months. I had that conflict.

    Do you ever experience creative block and if so, how do you overcome it?


    I think I do experience it sometimes. I overcome it by doing something simple. Normally, creative block happens if you're trying to do something ambitious, but the vision just won't come out. So, what I do is I try to prime it. I try to do something simple. Since it's simple, it's easier to finish. So, you feel happier about yourself because you finished something. That's my solution for creative blocks.


    What was the worst creative block you've ever experienced so far and what

    did you do? Or have you had any moments that you just felt stuck?


    I can't think of a specific instance. What I do is I keep working and working. Non-stop, until it comes out. So pretend, I'm working on a concept but it's really not coming out the way I want it to. I try to do something not exactly the concept; maybe something similar to it, and then sometimes, I just keep working until I hit a nail. It's like that.


    Have you ever had bad experiences with clients?


    I had a bad experience with a client recently. The job never pushed through, but I got annoyed because one of the employees, the one who contacted me, resigned and I didn't know---then I was just passed around to different people. There was never a proper turnover. I don't like it when clients aren't straightforward. Like, sometimes, I guess because they're afraid to hurt your feelings, they don't say anything.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" custom_margin="40px|||"]

    So it's better for them to be straight to the point, right?


    Yeah. Sometimes, it's me who becomes straightforward with them. Like---okay, here's my contract and here are the rates, and I just send it. I think it's because if you're younger, you have a tendency to be more afraid. But I guess, the more you get clients, the more you get used to the rhythm of how it works.


    Have you ever dealt with a client that didn't like your artwork? How did you deal with it?


    I had a client---she hired me to do a portrait of her. She liked my style and she told me to draw her in my style. So, I did. And then when it came out, there were so many adjustments. Like, "Can you make my nose smaller?" and "Can you make my eyebrows like this?" And in the end, she just wanted a realistic portrait.


     


    How do you deal with criticism when it comes to your work?


    I don't listen to it. Because I feel that the only criticisms that matters are from people who actually care about your work. If it's a critique that's not from my mentor or not from my friends who actually care about my work and who I brainstorm ideas with, I don't really listen to them. Because sometimes, these people don't actually care about your work. They just want to say something.

    What's the biggest challenge of being a Filipino artist?


    I guess the idea of (and I don't know if I'm going to get flacked for this), but the idea of---how society wants you to be starving. That if you're a Filipino artist, they have this notion that you're not well-off, so they want to help you more. Because I was talking to some of my friends from the US, and for them, when they present themselves, they present themselves well; very professional. If they have luxuries, it's fine. People will still buy their work. But here, I'm not so sure. I guess it's also changing slowly. But sometimes, people here are more inclined to thinking, "Oh, that artist came from a poor family. He used to just sell this or that." And it seems like people like that sort of drama. They want a sub-story. And they kind of like to help you more if you're like that. But I think now, it's gradually evolving. Especially with the Internet. People will like your work according to as they see it.


    As a Creative Writing graduate and coming from a perspective where female writers, in general, tend to be looked down on---does this also apply to female artists?


    I think for us females, we really have to work harder. Yeah. Sometimes, I feel like my work is becoming a little more masculine now is because when people look at the work, they get impressed. They don't know that I'm the one who made it. So sometimes, when they find out, they're like, "Oh, it was a girl who made that. I thought a guy did." So they kind of see men as more superior.

    What's your dream for our local community of artists?


    I'm not so sure yet because I'm just starting out, and I don't really know much about how the whole fine art world works. But with illustration, I wish that the pricing gets elevated when clients hire illustrators. Because a lot of illustrators, they always price so low. Like they don't know their worth. And agencies tend to treat illustrators like wholesale---like whoever bids with the lowest price for the most number of works. If you compare the price range in the US versus the price range here, it's so far. And I just wish that illustrators can respect themselves enough to price higher works and then, also companies respect creatives enough to pay them well.


    What do you think is the future of Philippine Art and what else do we need to do to bring it on a level higher than its current state? I think that in itself, Philippine Art, is really good already and I think a lot of artists here, their level is very global. And they can compete! There are a lot of collectors all over the world---like if you go all over Southeast Asia, there are so many collectors like in Malaysia or in Indonesia, they collect Filipino Art. And a lot of people don't know that. I guess as a community, I noticed in other countries, or in other Asian countries, or even in the US, artists there have a tighter community, while here it's very clique-ish. That's what I noticed. In other countries, everyone's a friend of everyone, and when they say hi to each other, they're very warm. But here, if you're a group of artists, you keep to yourselves, and if there's another group of artists, they keep to themselves. It's rare that you cross over to other groups, and I think I want to see more of that. To have a bigger community spirit where everyone can just cross over and party at everyone's houses!

  13. Looks for Less: Recreate These Celebrity Looks Using Dupes![et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    Ever wondered what it would be like to walk a mile in your celebrity beauty peg's shoes? Well---now you can walk a mile in their makeup! Or at least dupes of their makeup! W7 Cosmetics has always been about giving every woman access to affordable yet high quality beauty products, enabling them to create whatever looks they please at a reasonable budget. The brand has gained a reputation in the beauty world of making quality dupes of expensive makeup items. So if you want to recreate the looks of your favorite

    celebrities but hesitate because you know they probably spend loads of cash on the products they use, fret not! If dupes are what you seek, you've got to check out W7.


    Here are some of our favorite beauty pegs and what products you can use to get their look:



    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" text_font="||||||||" text_font_size="18px"]

    1. Bella Hadid



    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/1-1.x40925.jpg" _builder_version="3.0.86" max_width="91%" module_alignment="center" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" text_font="||||||||"]

    December 2016's "Model of the Year," Bella Hadid, has no doubt one of the most flawless skin on the planet. Sometimes, it's hard to believe that her "no makeup" selfies on Instagram are real. Cop the same flawlessness by correcting redness (such as pimples, or red spots on the sides of your nose) by using W7's Go Corrective Concealer (P299.00) before using a concealer in your skin tone to hide the blemishes.



    [/et_pb_text][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/W7-Go-Corrective-Concealer-Green.x40925.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/w7-go-corrective-concealer-green/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.86" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" text_font="||||||||" text_font_size="18px"]

    2. Taylor Swift

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/Taylor-Swift.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/eyes/w7-absolute-lashes-mascara/" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.86" max_width="83%" module_alignment="center" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    Taytay is back with a vengeance (for everyone who has crossed her in the past, apparently). But despite all that drama, she still manages to look A-list gorgeous, whether in her new music videos or Instagram Stories. She loves emphasizing those baby blue eyes of hers by piling on the mascara on her lashes. If long and lush lashes are what you're after, swipe on W7's Absolute Lashes Mascara (P449.00) and flutter away.



    [/et_pb_text][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/W7-Absolute-Lashes.x40925.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/eyes/w7-absolute-lashes-mascara/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.86" max_width="64%" module_alignment="center" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" text_font="||||||||" text_font_size="18px"]

    3. Rihanna

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/2265f1cf5fd5ba9faa91c3823bc19ea6.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/w7-genius-foundation/" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.86" max_width="82%" module_alignment="center" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    RiRi has been making headlines lately for launching her much raved about line of cosmetics: Fenty Beauty. According to the pop star, one of her main priorities was coming up with a foundation line for every possible skin tone there is, and she's done it! Thing is, with all the hype surrounding it, those foundations have been flying off store shelves---which practically

    makes it impossible to get our hands on them. In the meantime, if you want a foundation that gives your skin a dewy glow with natural and consistent coverage, check out W7's Genius (Feather Light) Foundation (P499.00) as an alternative option.



    [/et_pb_text][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/W7-Genius-Foundation-Buff.x40925.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/w7-genius-foundation/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.86" max_width="62%" module_alignment="center" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" text_font="||||||||" text_font_size="18px"]

    4. Chrissy Teigen

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/chrissy-teigenbeauty.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/w7-glowcomotion/" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.86" max_width="91%" module_alignment="center" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    John Legend's extremely hilarious wife is not only gorgeous but has a cracking sense of humor both on social media and in real life. She also always looks fabulous walking red carpets with her man. To achieve Chrissy's glam glow, apply W7's Glowcomotion (P449.00) on your cheekbones, nose bridge, and cupid's bow---then strut your stuff, girl!



    [/et_pb_text][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/W7-Glowcomotion.x40925.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/w7-glowcomotion/" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.86" max_width="69%" module_alignment="center" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" text_font="||||||||" text_font_size="18px"]

    5. Jennifer Lopez

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/JLo.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/eyes/w7-colour-buff/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.86" max_width="91%" module_alignment="center" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    Whether on music videos or concert stages, Jenny from the Block loves experimenting with a variety of looks. She could be a fiery Latina with a sultry smokey eye one night, and a classy Hollywood A-lister with subtle eye makeup the next. If you want to try your hand at experimenting with J.Lo's plethora of looks, W7's Colour Me Buff Palette (P649.00) is your go-to. It has 12 shades you can mix and match to get whatever look you want, so go forth and blend!

  14. You do YOU, Girl! Bold and Beautiful Looks for Singles' Day[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    All the single ladies, put your hands up! Singles Awareness (or Appreciation) Day is that one day when singles celebrate or commiserate their status of being unattached. Of course, the former is definitely the way to go. Celebrating independence, being on your own, doing things for yourself, and prioritizing YOU is highly rewarding and empowering. When one is attached (or on a desperate quest to be), putting on makeup sometimes ends up becoming a chore that needs to be done to make oneself look appealing in your partner's or other people's eyes. But wouldn't it be fun to go all out and put on bold and unexpected looks just because you want to? Who cares if anyone else finds it "too much" or ridiculous. Makeup is all about self-expression! You do YOU, girl! Check out these bold and beautiful looks you can wear on Single Appreciation Day:

    Pink is fabulous, and anyone who says otherwise should just zip it. Pink is more than just a color, it's an attitude! And a mane of pink spells A.T.T.I.T.U.D.E.

    Extra long and voluminous lashes add that extra bit of drama to any look. Your eyes will look wider, brighter, and full of life!

    Bold brows are an asset for cool, edgy, and independent girls like Cara Delevingne, who rocks it on a daily basis. They add definition to one's face for a legit "Don't mess with me because I've got it going on!" look.


    Suggested Product: Pink Sugar Honey I'm Good Brow Kit (P399.00)

    Red lips may be timeless, but let's amp it up even more by going for an orange pout! It's funky and fabulous, and will surely increase your confidence. So put on your biggest smile and work it.

    Eyes lined with thick eyeliner can transform your look from plain to edgy in no time. Defined lids give your power glare more oomph.

    Embrace your inner Carrie Bradshaw by going for a fun and modern city wedding. Don’t be afraid to break the norm and play around with pops of colors---may it be as simple as a bold shoe color or as grand as having mismatched bridesmaid gowns ala Sex in the City! Forget function halls and go big by going for a rooftop reception overlooking the breathtaking city sky line.

  16. A Beauty Newbie's Starter Kit[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    If you're a newbie to the world of beauty, welcome! You will definitely not regret entering a realm that makes it even more fun to be a girl. Don't be intimidated by all the various brands, terms, and colors that come with being in the beauty world. Beauty products are meant to make life easier and brighter---not stressful nor daunting.


    Here is a list of products you should have in your starter kit, chosen for their multi-use and simplicity.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    1. BB Cream with Sunblock:

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="1_3"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/Dr.-Jart-Premium-Beauty-Balm-SPF-45-40ml.x40925.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/dr-jart-premium-beauty-balm-spf-45-40ml/" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.86" module_alignment="center" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" custom_margin="20px|||"]

    A BB cream offers buildable coverage that will help even out your skin tone. We recommend choosing one with adequate sun protection to make sure you keep fine lines and age spots away.


    We like: DR. JART+ PREMIUM BEAUTY BALM SPF 45 (P2,989.00) A one-step balm that perfects the appearance of skin while protecting it from the sun and environmental factors.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" text_font="||||||||"]

    2. Lip and Cheek Tint

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="1_3"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/Milk-Makeup-Lip-Cheek-Perk.x40925.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/lips/milk-makeup-lip-cheek/" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.86" max_width="82%" module_alignment="center" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" custom_margin="15px|||"]

    Lip and cheek tints are your best friend when it comes to giving your face a flush of color. Just a few drops on the apples of your cheeks and a gentle swipe on your lips is all you need.


    We like: MILK MAKEUP LIP + CHEEK(P1,750.00) A quick, multi-use stick that can be applied to lips and cheeks for a creamy, sheer tint.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    3. Eyebrow Pencil

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="1_3"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Pink-Sugar-Honey-Im-Good-Brow-Gel-Brunette.x40925.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/eyes/pink-sugar-honey-im-good-brow-gel-brunette/" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.86" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" custom_margin="30px|||"]

    I know you're new to the makeup game and doing your brows right now may seem impossible---but remember that brows make or break your look, so start practicing how to apply them! There are an assortment of brands to choose from that are easy to use.


    We like: PINK SUGAR HONEY I'M GOOD BROW GEL - BRUNETTE (P349.00) A multi-purpose brow gel that fills in and conditions brows at the same time. It's also infused with coconut oil and aloe vera.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    4. Concealer

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="1_3"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/4160nTvV16L._SY355_.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/aritaum-full-cover-liquid-concealer/" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.86" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" custom_margin="30px|||"]

    No woman's makeup kit is complete without concealer to help combat dark under eye circles or the occasional blemish. Once you find your perfect shade and consistency, this will definitely be a constant companion.


    We like: ARITAUM FULL COVER LIQUID CONCEALER (P429.00) A high coverage liquid concealer that covers blemishes on wide spots flawlessly.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    5. Setting Powder

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="1_3"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/Coty-Airspun-Loose-Face-Powder-Translucent-1000x1000.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/coty-airspun-loose-face-powder-65g-translucent/" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.86" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" custom_margin="30px|||"]

    A setting powder is highly recommended to lock your look in place. It's also a great way to combat shine and get added sun protection.


    We like: COTY AIRSPUN LOOSE FACE POWDER 65G - TRANSLUCENT (P630.00)  A loose powder with a Microspun formula where loose powder particles are spun and swirled until they reach a cloudlike softness.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    6. Mascara

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="1_3"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/W7-Absolute-Lashes.x40925.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/eyes/w7-absolute-lashes-mascara/" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.86" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" custom_margin="30px|||"]

    Mascara is the quickest way to make eyes look brighter and more wide awake.


    We like: W7 ABSOLUTE LASHES MASCARA (P449) A black mascara with a soft, spiked brush for an instant boost of volume, length, and extra curl for bolder-looking lashes.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" custom_margin="40px|||"]

  17. Valerie Chua: The Female Form[et_pb_section fb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat"][et_pb_column type="1_3" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]




    A post shared by Valerie Chua (@valeriechuaart) on






    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" text_font="||||||||" custom_margin="30px|||"]

    When you see our November #CalyxtaGirl's artworks, especially on Instagram, you'll notice that most of them tend to gravitate towards nature and the female form. This is especially evident in this week's art inspiration, which Valerie Chua brings to life yet again in a series of floral and feminine shots highlighting a softer, more delicate side (compared to last week's stronger and edgier layout).


    And since this week's look focuses on the beauty of the Female Form, we delved into a similar boundary and asked Valerie about what a normal day is like in her studio, what she would have been had she not pursued being an artist, her skin care routine, and of course, if she uses the same artistic skills when doing her makeup!


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    What's a normal day like for you? When you're not painting, what do you like to do?


    Spare time? (laughs) I like staying home. I would watch cartoons. I love cartoons! But pretend it's a weekend, like Sundays, I usually don't work on Sundays. I spend time with my boyfriend. We go out and try a new restaurant every time.


    What about on a weekday---what's a normal day like in your studio? How do you prep yourself?


    I wake up at home. I don't change. I don't brush my teeth. I don't shower. I hop in the car and go straight to the studio. (laughs) And then I do everything there. I shower there, I brush my teeth. I don't do it at home. And then around 9am, I start work. Around 12 to 1, I have lunch. Then my sister, who's also a fashion designer, works inside the studio (our studio has a partition and hers is the bigger half)---we eat together, and we watch cartoons while eating. We watch Rick N' Morty or Bob's Burgers. Sometimes, we would go back to a series that we watched when we were younger. Last time, we marathon-ed Daria. Sometimes, Hey Arnold. Anything from the past, and not just cartoons. Recently, we marathon-ed FRIENDS. We'd just watch one or two episodes then after, go back to work. Then we finish at 5pm and go home.

    If you weren't an artist, what do you think you would have been?


    Um, a scientist maybe. I really like science. (laughs) Like biology and stuff. I have a knack for memorizing like mitosis, miosis, etc. --that's so fun for me. To draw all the steps, and then memorize them.


    Did you consider pursuing medicine? Like being a doctor?


    Maybe not doctor. I think more of science, science. Like genetics, or whatever. (laughs)

    How would you describe your makeup routine? Your everyday makeup routine?

    In the morning, I go out of the house without anything. Just the oils gathered from when I was asleep (laughs)  wash my face in the shower. In the morning, I put moisturizer and SPF. Everyday. Even if I don't leave the house, I still wear SPF because I'm prone to age spots. Even if I'm just indoors! (laughs) And then in the evening, after washing my face, I put toner, hyaluronic acid, an essence, and then a moisturizer, and then eye cream! Then once a week, I would put a balm---I use Neal's Yard Rose Balm. I guess for extra moisturization.


    Is your skin type dry? Or combination?


    Combination.


    What are the top three makeup products that you can't live without?


    I guess eyebrow liner---K-Palette for the eyebrows. And then Urban Decay's eye primer. And I guess eyeshadow. Yeah. Because my eyes are small, and I want to make them look bigger. So the eyes are very important.


    How about for skin care? Your top three?


    Skin care...hmm. Always, my moisturizer. Sometimes, even when I travel and I forget everything, I have my thickest moisturizer. I use Curel Intensive Moisture Care. I guess eye cream also. And then...facial wash?


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    Do you like experimenting or being creative with your makeup looks? Or would you say that you get to incorporate your artistic skills onto your makeup looks?


    Actually, I'm very conservative with makeup. As much as possible, I want to look natural. So, not really. Maybe when I was younger, I would try dark lipstick---like plum-colored ones. But now, the more natural, the better.


    What makeup trends do you follow? Or would you like to try?

    Makeup trends...hmmm. What's trendy now? I guess highlighter. I have friends who started buying highlighters. So I also bought. (laughs) And I use it. The Becca Champagne Pop?


    What would you say is your most expensive makeup or skin care product that you own?

    RMK Gel Foundation, which is around P2,300. It's my favorite foundation because it's thin and it sort of merges into my skin color while covering my blemishes. It doesn't oxidize as much as other foundations I tried. It's magic!


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/CAYO6647.x40925.jpg" _builder_version="3.0.86" max_width="89%" module_alignment="center"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/CAYO6637.x40925.jpg" _builder_version="3.0.86" max_width="90%" module_alignment="center"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" custom_margin="20px|||"]

    What lipstick do you use?

    I use a Maquillage that's like a gloss. I also use Happy Skin---they have the one from the Disney line. I think it was the Little Mermaid one. It's a dark pink color---I use that for the center to make my lips look like there were bitten. Like an ombre effect. Then I use the Maquillage on the outer part.


    What's the best beauty advice you've ever received and from who?


    The one that I always hear is cleanse, tone, and moisturize. Those three steps. I think I went to a blogger event before and that was the thing that they kept saying---cleanse, tone, moisturize. I forgot which brand it was. So ever since then, that's what I do---cleanse, tone, moisturize. Even if you don't have all the other serums or essences---as long as you have a final moisturizer, it's okay.

  18. Somber Gazelle[et_pb_section fb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    This week’s look is a sneak peek of Valerie’s third cover story where she talks about dealing with creative block and other struggles she faces as an artist. Stay tuned as we reveal all about it next Wednesday!


    Meanwhile, you can learn how to recreate this extraordinary look by reading up on these steps:


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" custom_margin="30px|||"]1. Prime your face to create the perfect makeup base. Try the W7 PRIME MAGIC CLEAR FACE PRIMER, P449, for a flawless makeup application.
    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_3" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/W7-Prime-Magic-Clear-Face-Primer.x40925.x40925.jpg" _builder_version="3.0.86" url_new_window="on" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/w7-prime-magic-clear-face-primer/"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="1_3" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/Bourjois-Healthy-Mix-Foundation-53-Light-Beige.x40925.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/bourjois-healthy-mix-foundation/" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.86"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" custom_margin="30px|||"]

    2. For a lightweight, radiance-boosting foundation, try the BOURJOIS HEALTHY MIX FOUNDATION, P1,000. It’s enriched with a fruit therapy formula that helps enhance your complexion and gives your face that healthy-looking glow!


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" custom_margin="30px|||"]

    3. Just to quickly set in your foundation, apply a thin layer of the ELLANA SHEER VELVET HD POWDER REFILL, P599.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_3" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/Ellana-Sheer-Velvet-HD-Powder.x40925.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/ellana-sheer-velvet-hd-powder-refill/" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.86"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="1_3" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/W7-Glowcomotion.x40925.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/w7-glowcomotion/" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.86"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86" custom_margin="30px|||"]

    4. Get that subtle highlight on with the W7 GLOWCOMOTION, P449. Apply on top of your cheekbones and lightly on your bridge nose to gorgeously catch that light on your face.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    5. For this look, you can go for bold, full brows by filling it in with either a black eyebrow pencil or even an eyeshadow palette to really achieve the fully filled-in look. You can try using the darkest shade of the W7 COLOUR ME BUFF, P649. It’s an eyeshadow palette with 12 long-lasting and easily blend-able shadow shades.

    6. Achieve the faux freckles look by bringing out a waterproof, long-wear brow pencil or gel, just like the MILANI STAY PUT BROW COLOR, P500. Using an eyeliner brush, dot across your cheeks, the bridge of your nose, and between your brows. You can use either a beauty sponge or just your fingertip to blend it seamlessly. Don’t forget to blot it with translucent powder to properly set your faux freckles!

    7. For the white strokes on Valerie’s eyes, you can use the MAYBELLINE COLOR SENSATIONAL LODADED BOLDS in WICKEDLY WHITE, P299. Apply it using an eyeliner brush for that precise stroke!

  20. Lash Dance: How to Foolproof Your Mascara[et_pb_section fb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.86" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    Tips on how to foolproof your mascara so you never have to experience smearing, clumping or running woes again!


    Mascara is usually the last step of a makeup routine. Ironically though, it's sometimes the first to come off. Blame it on the weather (Manila humidity is insane), teary eyes, or a lousy mascara formula. Whatever the reason, we're here to tell you that there's hope. You can pull off a fab lash look minus the stresses of a mascara meltdown.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.86" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    1. Matte Magic

    Eyelids are notoriously oily so it's best to prep the area with good a mattifying or oil-control powder. This will ensure that the area will be kept dry and won't be penetrating your mascara with oil or moisture.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.86" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    2. Base Control

    Mascaras come in all shapes and forms, and some of them come with a base. A base acts like a primer by preparing lashes for mascara application. It smoothens out strands, and is equipped with a formula that works together with a separate mascara for a one-two type punch so that your lashes become 100% fool-proof.


    3. Layer by Layer

    Mascara should be treated like nail polish. Apply at least 2 to 3 coats (one just won't cut it), making sure you allow each layer to set before applying the next one. This allows you to build as you go.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.86" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/Mascara-Application.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/product-category/make-up/eyes/mascara/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.86" max_width="83%" module_alignment="center"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.86"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.86" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.86"]

    4. Hot Hack

    If your mascara has gone clumpy, leave it in a cup of hot water for a few minutes---that'll help loosen the product a bit. It's also a good idea to wipe off any excess product on tissue before swiping it onto your lashes so that you don't end up with too much of the product at once.


    5. Waterproof Winner

    Always finish off with a waterproof mascara. You may opt to build lashes using a regular mascara that'll prove to be easier to remove later on but leave the finishing touch to a waterproof one to properly seal the deal.

  21. Real Bride: Pam Tubaña-Buhay[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/IMG_20171023_102915.x40925.jpg" _builder_version="3.0.85" /][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.85" inline_fonts="Dancing Script"]

    What lip color did you choose for the wedding day?

    I let my makeup artist decide on which color to put on my lips for the ceremony and reception---he never disappoints!

    What was in your wedding day makeup kit/pouch?

    I decided not to bring any makeup kit or pouch, especially during the wedding ceremony.  I just wanted to hold my bouquet along with my beautiful dress and had my makeup retouched before the program began.

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.85" inline_fonts="Dancing Script"]

    What’s the inspiration behind your wedding look? Did you have any hair and makeup pegs?


    For my hair, I wanted it neat, simple, and classy. For my makeup, I just trusted my makeup artist to do his thing. He has been my makeup artist for a few other special events and he always knows what to do!


     Who designed your wedding gown, and how did you come up with the style? How long did it take to create or find the perfect wedding dress?


    The truth is, I bought my gown ready-made and just had it adjusted by a local designer to fit me perfectly.


    How did you choose your hair and makeup artist? 


    It's very important to choose a makeup artist whom you trust---someone who can enhance your natural beauty. I met a lot of makeup artists about a year ago and none of them really suited my taste until I met Louie Abcede. He has been my makeup artist since my best friend's wedding. When he first saw me, he knew what shade’s best for my skin. He achieved the "no makeup" makeup look, which I totally love!

    What was your biggest takeaway from your wedding day? Do you have any beauty-related tips you’d like to share to upcoming brides?


    Enjoy! Just enjoy everything---from the preparations, to the wedding day itself, up to the reception. It's every girl's dream to marry the one they truly love. And if you feel happy, it will show naturally! Whether you're planning a D.I.Y. wedding or getting a professional wedding planner, just enjoy and always feel blessed for everything and the rest will follow!


    Lastly, what makes your wedding uniquely yours and your husband’s? What makes your wedding “you”? 


    My husband and I have been together for 12 years and we knew what we wanted our wedding to be like. We want it to be inspiring. We have been very hands on with every detail of our wedding---from choosing the songs to be played, photographer, videographer, color palettes, flowers, food, up to the venue. Our goal is to share our joy and to inspire others by our story, by our love, and hopefully one day to marry the one they love.




    "Enjoy! Just enjoy everything."

    What was the best beauty advice you received that helped you prepare for your wedding?

    RELAX! Especially since mine was a D.I.Y. wedding and I've been coordinating other weddings and debut events at the same time. My colleagues always tell me to relax and take one day at a time. It's important for every future bride to take some time off to go to the spa or have their nails done, trim their hair, and get some fresh air!

    How about in terms of fitness? What did you do months before the wedding to stay in shape and make sure your wedding dress fit perfectly? Did you enroll in a gym or fitness center? What was your diet like?

    My ex-boyfriend, which is now my husband, is a fitness bud! He knew I didn’t have enough time to hit the gym so he would cook healthy meals for dinner and make sure I’d get enough sleep. I love how my partner turned out to be my health instructor.

    With her infectious smile and a bubbly personality that never once faded during our whole-day shoot with our October #CalyxtaGirl, Maureen Wroblewitz, Ica Villanueva is a freelance stylist you'll always want to have around on set. She'll talk to you non-stop about anything and everything---the celebrities she has styled (this roster includes Boy Abunda, Yeng Constantino, and Amy Perez), how she was trained well by a leading styling company in the Philippines before deciding to do it as a freelancer, and all the projects she's gotten since then.

    1. How did it all start for you? When did it all start?

    I started when I was 20 years old and I worked as a styling assistant for 4 years.

    2. How long have you been styling?

    As a freelance stylist, it's been 3 years already

    3. What do you love most about your job?

    I love transforming people and giving them confidence just by helping them with their looks. Also, I love meeting new people especially the opportunity to work with creative and passionate people in the industry.

    4. What do you love most about styling and putting together outfit looks?

    I love how I'm able to transform a person; being able to be surprised of how an outfit looks good on her; being able to experiment and try on different looks.


    5. What would you say is your signature style?

    My signature style would be street and edgy. I like playing with layers and textures. but I think being a stylist, it is important to be versatile, like from Melai Cantiveros to Yeng Constantino, I have to know their personal style and what looks good on them while putting my personal touch.


    6. Where do you get your inspiration when styling?


    I ask my client for their personal style, and what type of clothes they are comfortable with. Then I suggest and look for style inspirations that would be flattering and suitable to their personality and body type.

    7. What do you believe is the best accessory?

    Confidence. I think if you are confident that you are a good person, there'sthis certain aura and light that comes out naturally, which makes you carry your outfit well.


    8. Is this the career you've always wanted to pursue? Why? Why not?

    At first, I really wanted to be a chef. Haha! I'm really interested in the complexity of food. Aside for my love of food, I find it so magical that whatever we feel, food is always part of the celebration of the feeling.

    9. Name three of your biggest projects so far.

    a. Your Face Sounds Familiar - This show will always be my "baby show."This was my first show as a freelance stylist.


    b. Nike - Being able to style an international brand is alwayssomething to be proud of.


    c. Manila X Festival - I was one of the four stylists who had a fashionshow. I collaborated with Chalk Magazine and it was a memorable experience.I got to showcase my vision in styling and really focused on my strengthslike layering and playing with textures.

    10. What is the best advice that you've received about styling?

    Always be approachable, kind and humble because people will not be afraid to book you or ask for your advice because they find you relatable and easy to talk to.

  23. BEAUTY BUZZ: Barbie x Plains & Prints[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/barbie-loves-plains-and-prints-9.x40925.jpg" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.85" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.85"]

    The launch of the Barbie x Plains & Prints collaboration was surely a dream come true for every Barbie girl at heart. If someone told my 6-year-old self that I would one day be stepping inside a real-life Dreamhouse, I'd probably call it a bluff. Can you believe that it has been 58 years of Barbie? Yet, to this day, she continues to inspire many women of all ages, me included. You know what they say---once a Barbie girl, always a Barbie girl!


    This Holiday season, Plains & Prints decided to play it up as they collaborated with the international fashion icon whose timeless elegance truly captures what the homegrown clothing line is all about! Together with international brand Mattel, they reinvented some of Barbie's most iconic looks to create the stunning 10-piece collection, which features pieces inspired by Barbie dolls from different eras!

    Plains & Prints brand ambassador, Anne Curtis, excitedly walked out as a Soda Shop (2016) Barbie doll. "I've loved Barbie since I was a child and I remember how I used to say that I just want to be like her. I'm glad that this collection allows me to relive that dream as a grown-up woman." Anne shares.

  24. A Beginner's Guide to the Ketogenic Diet[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.85"]

    Perhaps one of the most talked about diets available in the market right now is the Ketogenic Diet (also known as the Keto Diet). I've been hearing friends and colleagues constantly talk about it, yet the only thing I really know is that it's a low-carb, high-fat diet that instantly results in weight loss.


    And so, for the benefit of everyone who is just as curious as me, I've made it my mission to learn more---and what better way to do that than  by interviewing: 1. experts on the Ketogenic Diet, and 2. someone who is currently on it!


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.85"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.85" text_font="||||||||" text_font_size="18px"]

    Calyxta Conversations with Ketos of Manila


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.85"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/Ketos-of-Manila.x40925.jpg" _builder_version="3.0.85" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.85"]

    1. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself? What do you do? What is your lifestyle like?


    We're James and Neil, and we're the Keto Titos! We're marketing professionals, fitness fanatics, and health-food addicts.


    We're both very active. We work out every day of the week, sometimes, twice a day. We both went on Keto three months ago and we were amazed at the results. We both lost around 8% to 10% body fat in 3 weeks. But what made it even better was the extra boost of energy and mental clarity that we experienced throughout the day - no more post-lunch carb crashes and late-night cravings!


    We've always focused on working out, but we never paid enough attention to the food that we were eating. It's true what they say: fitness is 20% exercise and 80% diet. With Keto, we felt healthier and fitter, so we were hooked!


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.85"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.85"]

    2. What made you decide to start Ketos of Manila?

    We were instant Keto converts, but we realized how difficult it was to follow this way of eating. There were very few Keto meal delivery options then. Preparing Keto meals was time consuming and sourcing ingredients was challenging. We were getting a lot of Keto questions from friends so we were compelled to do something about it.


    James is a creative and passionate cook, so we put our heads together and moved quickly to set up Ketos of Manila.


    When we started Ketos of Manila, our mission was simple: to help people become the fittest version of themselves, one Ketogenic meal at a time. We didn't realize the impact that our meals could make, but as more clients shared their weight loss successes, we knew we were on the right track. There's always a sparkle in people's eyes when they share that they've lost several pounds or have dropped a dress size or feel fitter than they've ever felt. We realized that we weren't just offering a meal delivery service, we were in fact, starting a low-carb, feel-good food and fitness movement! And we're just getting started!

    3. What is Ketos of Manila?

    Ketos of Manila is a delicious Ketogenic meal delivery service in Metro Manila. Our meals are High Fat, Low Carb and Full Flavor.  We know how hard it is to work out and stay in shape, so we want to help make dieting zero-effort.  Our daily packages come with 4 macro-calculated meals and we deliver to most parts of Metro Manila.


    Our clients have told us that our meals are full of flavor. We think that's what sets us apart. People tend to think that healthy food is bland. So our insight is that healthy food SHOULDN'T taste healthy.  James has a lot of fun creating menus with a Keto twist. Our best dishes so far are Fried Chicken in Chicharon batter, Croque Monsieur on Keto bread, Chicken Curry with Cauli Rice, Eggplant Beef Lasagna, and Nut Butter Cheesecake, to name a few.

    4. For those who aren't familiar with the Ketogenic diet, can you explain what it is?

    A Ketogenic diet is high in fat, moderate in protein and low in carbs. To illustrate, let's talk math. That means 75% of your daily calories come from fat, 20% from protein, and only 5% from carbs. The recommended carb intake is around 20g of net carbs a day (that's equivalent to one banana!)


    When you switch from a carb-based diet to a carb deficit, your body goes through a state of Ketosis, where your liver burns fat (or Ketones) for energy instead of glucose. Ketones supply a steady energy supply for the body and the brain. Going Keto has a wide range of benefits such as weight loss, body fat reduction, improved mental clarity, increased energy and many others.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_3"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/ketogenic-diet-.x40925.jpg" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.85" custom_margin="50px|||" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.85"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.85" text_font="Dancing Script||||||||" text_font_size="25px"]

    5. What advice can you give those who are about to transition to the Keto diet?

    Don't Fear Fat! Recent research shows that eating fats are actually healthy. When we tell people to load up on healthy fats like cheese, butter, nuts, cream, olive oil, and avocados, they're actually surprised! Everyone seems to think that you have to eat Chicharon all day! Haha!


    Quality of Food over Calories. For Keto, what matters more are macros and ensuring you follow the 75% fat, 20% protein, 5% carb guideline. It can be challenging, but there are meal plans, apps, and infographics that can help you stay on track.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.85"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/3.x40925.jpg" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.85" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.85"]

    Before you start, measure yourself and keep track of your progress. If you decide to go into Keto, set a target (such as weight loss or body fat reduction). Some clients have lost up to 6 lbs. in their first week on Keto, so it's always encouraging to monitor your progress.


    Avoid the Keto Flu. In your first few days of Keto, you may experience flu-like symptoms as your body adjusts to a carb-deficit. Fight it by hydrating and taking electrolytes.


    And of course, as with any diet, it's always good to consult your Doctor or Dietitian if you have any health or medical questions.

    6. They say there's a diet depending on the needs of different people. Who can benefit most from this type of diet?

    Switching to Keto works well for people who want to lose weight, curb their appetite, boost their energy and mental focus, or who want to improve their overall lifestyle.


    Scientific studies also show that Keto can help in various health conditions, such as diabetes, cancer and heart disease.

    7. How can people avail of Ketos of Manila?

    They can look us up on Facebook or Instagram and send us a quick email at [email protected]

    1. How long have you been doing the Keto Diet?

    Almost 3 months but I'm not counting my first month because I was not strictly following the diet. I went for the easier route which was to drop carbs and sugar; but did not take in more fats. So technically, I was not burning anything. On my 2nd month, I started monitoring my macros (percentage of fats vs. carbs vs. proteins) and made sure I commit to the required split among the three. That's when I started going through the "keto flu," which is basically a phase wherein one gets in ketosis (the
    metabolic state characterized by raised levels of ketone bodies in our tissues) . Which means I was doing it right!


     

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/IMG_2762.x40925.jpg" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.85" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.85"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.85"]

    2. What were the changes you noticed ever since you got into the diet?

    I don't get hungry at odd hours or during breaks. I can take my first meal close to lunch (but of course, would have to take my bulletproof coffee at around 7:30am) even after my daily workout.  So now, I don't eat junk food or carb-loaded snacks anymore. If ever, I snack on cheese or nuts.


    3. Do you recommend the Keto Diet? Who do you think will benefit most from this type of diet?


    Honestly, I'm still considering this as my trial phase. I might have lost some pounds in the span of almost 2 months doing it, but I have yet to make sure my cholesterol levels are manageable. Right now, the reading is not so good, however, I've been told that it's because my body is still getting used to it. I will check again my cholesterol in January, four months after, to see if it has stabilized. If not, then I have to review the diet and see how it can work for me. Until I've validated this myself, I cannot recommend it fully to others.

    4. What do you like about this diet?

    I can withstand not eating all the time and not feeling bad about it. Before, I would skip rice but would feel so terrible. Now, I feel that I don't need it---so the acceptance not to eat certain types of food is easier.


    5. What are the biggest challenges or struggles you've experienced so far?

    I'm a carb-loving person---paella, pancit, bread, etc. I'm getting used to not eating it even if it's right beside me already. But sometimes, I can't help but give in. I just have a bite or two!


    6. What advice can you give those who are interested to try out this diet?


    Check your cholesterol first before starting it so you have a basis after four months of doing the diet. Join a group who follows this diet as well, like a Facebook group for support (because you will really need it), and the tips they share! At first, you'll think it's hard to follow because of the restrictions---but really, you just need to be creative about it. That's why I save ideas posted on the Facebook group so I can also do it myself.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.85"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.85" text_font="||||||||"]

    Find out where you can buy products that are keto friendly, especially those that can match your current cravings. I buy shirataki noodles and rice to replace my pasta and rice cravings for example; or I order a keto friendly chocolate cake for my sweet cravings!


    7. Do you ever have cheat days? What do you eat during your cheat days?


    Not really a day, but moments. It's hard to cheat for a day because your body will feel weird. I usually don't monitor my macros on weekends. Instead, I just estimate it. I don't over-eat but I try not to be strict because that's when I usually eat out with my family. I also don't work out on weekends.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.85"][et_pb_column type="2_3"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.85"]

    8. On a normal day, what are your usual meals like? (Breakfast, lunch, merienda, and dinner)

    I take bulletproof coffee (that's with ghee butter, MCT oil, and cream) at around 8:30am. Then for lunch, whatever protein and fat I can order: lechon kawali, sisig, adobo, etc. I also try to put veggies. That's where I'm weak though---vegetables. So I try to make a small salad at night. I also make sure there's no sugar for dinner.


    9. Do you complement this diet with exercise? If so, what kind of workouts or exercises do you do?


    Yes, though I've been told even without exercise you will lose the pounds. I do 30 to 40-minute workouts every morning (because I get bored if it's more than that). I alternate it between cardio and yoga, then I try to walk 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day.

    Living in a world where being different is more often than not mocked, isolated or bullied, local retail brand, Penshoppe, launches their first public CSR campaign to empower today's youth and encourage them to celebrate their uniqueness---through the #IAmDifferent campaign.


    #IAmDifferent is a movement that inspires everyone to embrace their quirks and be proud of it, despite what other people think. "Being different is something to celebrate and be proud of, that's why Penshoppe is truly committed to empowering the youth to embrace their individuality," shares Penshoppe Brand Director, Jeff Bascon.

    Penshoppe's international brand ambassadors, Bella Hadid, Lucky Blue Smith, Kaia Gerber, and Sandara Park joined the campaign as well to help bring focus to the rampant issue, especially nowadays where 1 of 2 Filipino students have experienced or witnessed bullying in their schools. With the rise of social media, it's become even more widespread as it provides a more convenient channel to spread hate and anger, while thriving on people's insecurities.

From your wedding cake, to your bouquet, to the decorations, be sure to keep it classy by going for simple accents of pinks and deep reds. Nothing overly bold on the makeup by opting for stunning nudes and browns for your eyes and lips.

  27. Where to Do Your Pre-Nuptial Shoot In and Near Manila[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.85"]

    Weddings these days aren't complete without a pre-nuptial shoot. The prenup shoot isn't a new invention. In the olden days, these photos are called engagement pictures, which are used by the couple to announce their impending nuptials in the newspaper. These days, engagement photos are also used to accompany a wedding announcement but mostly on Facebook and Instagram.


    There are other uses for pre-nuptial pictures. You can use these on your wedding website, misalettes, and throughout your reception venue as decoration. Plus, they make lovely mementos for your future kids. Another great use for a photo shoot is that you and your wedding photographer get to know each other better. He or she will be able to understand how you interact as a couple, for example, or find out which angles are best for you.

    Now that you know what prenup shoots are for, where should you have them done? A photographer's studio is easiest because all of the equipment needed are there and you're immune to the weather's fickle mood. The best place to have your prenup shoot done, however, is the one that reflects your personality as a couple or tells your love story best. Try to have your photo shoot done where you met or where you fell in love. If that proves to be impossible, then choose a place that you both love---your favorite restaurant is a good place to start. Here are some suggestions we have for you:

    If you like street fashion photography, then just go out and start shooting on the street! You can choose Makati's busy mood and wear something colorful to stand out against the sea of people in black and gray corporate suits. If you're going for a nostalgic feel, dress up in a pretty dress made of piña and put your man in a barong then pose on the cobbled-stone streets of Intramuros.

    If you and your fiancé are the playful type, then check out Star City in Pasay. You can also go out of town and visit Skye Ranch in Tagaytay. The photos will definitely be gorgeous because of all the colors and lights around you. Best of all, you are going to have so much fun!

    Our big museums aren't encouraging of photo shoots since precious art and exhibits may be damaged, plus your shoot may inconvenience other patrons. They'll agree to hold a shoot but they'll charge a prohibitive fee, which makes art lovers sad since our museums have wonderful architecture that will frame a couple beautifully. If you insist on museums, try Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo. You can shoot in its lush gardens, by the Mediterranean-inspired white buildings, or against the view of the city below.

    Greenery is best for couples who love gardening, picnics, or are botanists. If your family, a relative, or a friend has a nice garden, then you've found a beautiful (and free!) setting for your prenup shoot. No garden in your part of the city? Try Hillcreek Gardens in Tagaytay. It's not just vast and gorgeous, the hotel is posh---treat it as a fabulous getaway to get rid of pre-wedding jitters.

    For the couple who loves style, luxury, and convenience, a hotel is the perfect location. You can choose the hotel you booked for your wedding (they might include it in the package). The five-star hotels in and around the city usually have gardens, swimming pools, and themed restaurants to fit your every mood. Plus, they know how to accommodate and attend to a bride-to-be's every wish. Try ritzy Solaire Resort Manila, or the very Filipiniana Manila Hotel. The grand staircases of Sofitel Manila, Makati Shangri-La, and Manila Peninsula are classic backdrops for weddings, too.

  28. Colourpop Pressed Powder Highlighter Bronzer[et_pb_section fb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.85"]

    There must be a gazillion contouring powders available today, thanks to the social media powers of the Kardashian clan, and thankfully, there are a bunch of them that are good---like, really good.


    When I opened the Colourpop Pressed Powder Face, I was hesitant to try it out at first because my initial thoughts were, "Oh, it looks too dark for my skin tone," and "Hmmm, it seems a bit chalky..." but I was pleasantly surprised to find out that none of that was true. This was a pressed powder after all, and wasn't anywhere near my skin tone but, as I've learned from countless beauty articles---you can always use a darker pressed powder shade to contour, and that was what I ended up doing.

    TEXTURE

    The compact it comes in is pretty straightforward. It's important to note that the product doesn't come with an applicator.

    Under flash, this powder has a really nice finish. It's smooth to the touch, and the pigment is evenly distributed. Without flash, the powder is a bit heavier to the eye but still registers as really photogenic.

    I was glad to have found a dark shade of pressed powder to use as a contouring tool. This powder is easy to apply, and looks really natural on skin. If you're morena, this powder will look great all over, and if your skin is more on the fair side, it's a winning contouring hue.

  29. Short Story: How to Rock a Pixie Cut[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.85"] Nothing spells confidence better than a closely-cropped pixie cut.

    Ultra-short hair has taken center-stage lately, and it's easy to see why. A couple of decades ago, Mia Farrow became iconic for her pixie 'do because it drew attention to her pretty face. In more recent years, celebrities like Charlize Theron, Halle Berry, Michelle Williams, Anne Hathaway, and Emma Watson have all demonstrated the power of the cropped cut---it sends the message that you can stand on your own, without the need for long, lustrous locks to make you appear or feel more beautiful.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.85"][et_pb_column type="1_3"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/Anne-Hathaway.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/product-category/hair-nails/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.85" align="center" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_3"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/Emma-Watson.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/product-category/hair-nails/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.85" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_3"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/Michelle-Williams2.x40925.jpg" _builder_version="3.0.85" max_width="90%" module_alignment="left" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.85"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.85"]

    But just as with medium of long hair, a short hairstyle still requires care, and this is where the right shampoos, repairing treatments, and styling products come in.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.85"][et_pb_column type="1_3"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/COLOR-SH-1080X1080.x40925.x40925.png" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/hair-nails/dove-hair-therapy-shampoo-color-care-12oz/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.85" align="center" max_width="81%" module_alignment="center" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.85" custom_margin="20px|||"]

    If you've got short hair that's colored, there's still the need to address color fading so do go for shampoos like Dove's Hair Therapy Shampoo Color Care, P293 which is armed with a color lock technology that nourishes and keeps hair color looking vibrant for as long as eight weeks!



    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.85"][et_pb_column type="2_3"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.85" custom_margin="20px|||"]

    Short styles may not have the usual length that's prone to split ends but it's still a must to care for your strands via a treatment type of hair product. Tresemme's Platinum Strength Stay Soft Leave In Treatment, P385 is a genius product that's lightweight on locks but manages to deeply condition your mane with its renewing complex.

    When it comes to styling, short hair will benefit most from a wax-type of product because it gives hair dimension as well as a texturized hold. We love Toni & Guy's High Definition Spray Wax, P750 because the spray function allows you to strategically apply the product where you feel you need it most.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.85"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.85"]

    Ladies, the pixie cut is also an opportunity to play up your makeup looks as short hair exposes your features more. So take it as a go-signal to experiment with edgier eye makeup or a multitude of lip hues---whatever it is that you do end up choosing, you can be sure you'll be rocking that 'do alongside fab new makeup looks!

    How was it like planning a destination wedding? What were the biggest challenges you faced and how did you overcome them?


    I think it was challenging just because of the fact that I was in a different country--the difference in culture, the language, the suppliers, and having to search mostly everything on my own. Not like in Manila, we all know more or less the suppliers we’d like to get. Sometimes I felt like I was on my own in planning the wedding because not everybody here could really understand the traditional things I wanted to do and how to do them. Luckily my husband was very supportive. Also, coordinating everything for the guests, their transportation from the city to the beach, from the hotels to the church and to the reception or recommending and booking places to stay—these were things we had to take into account. They were willing to fly all the way to Spain, so helping each one (my family, aunts, cousins & friends) with every concern, was the least we could do.


    How did you choose your suppliers? Were they all based in Spain or did you choose some suppliers from the Philippines?


    Most of our suppliers were from Spain. We did months of research online. Instagram was my best friend because it was a great way to see the work they’ve done and how they do it. My florist, videographer, and photographer were all found online. Some suppliers were recommended to me by my mother-in-law, or other suppliers. The rest I just found here in Valencia or in Jávea. One supplier I got from Manila was for my bridesmaids´ dresses since most of my bridesmaids were from there.

    What made you decide to choose Spain as your wedding location? Where in Spain was the wedding held?


    We had our wedding in a small coastal town in Valencia, called Jávea. It’s right by the Mediterranean coastline and it is where my husband and his family usually spend Summer every year. I always thought I wanted a beach wedding in the Philippines because nothing compared to the famous islands in our country. However, when I saw Jávea, it was a different kind of beauty and I completely fell in love with it! We chose Hotel Parador, which is known for its unique locations all over Spain, in castles, monuments or beaches. Parador de Jávea had a beautiful garden, with a view overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and it was the perfect combination of a beach and garden wedding.


    Given that our culture was highly influenced by the Spanish people, what do you think is the difference between a wedding here in the Philippines compared to a wedding in Spain?


    It was a very traditional Catholic wedding, just like the way we do it in the Philippines. The big difference was more of the things we got from the American culture such as having bridesmaids, groomsmen, flower girls, the order in which they marched down the aisle, writing your own vows, the whole program during the reception---all of that I had to explain to our suppliers since these weren’t really part of their local wedding customs. I would say that Spanish weddings are much simpler. The groom enters with his mother, and then the bride with her father. The reception would literally just be a dinner and at the end, one person would say a speech and then the cake cutting. Even the throwing of the bouquet is different. In Spain, the couple usually chooses a girl to whom they’d give the bouquet. As they go around each table with a song playing in the background, they’d surprise her by handing the bouquet unexpectedly.

    Who designed your dress? What about your entourage?


    I looked for dresses in Rosa Clara & Pronovias, but fell in love with the 2nd dress I tried on in Pronovias and ended up getting it. They say that when it’s the dress for you, you just know, and that’s exactly what happened! I had the bridesmaids’ dresses made by my sister’s friend in Manila. Her business is called Marqui’s Closet.


    What was your biggest takeaway from your wedding day? Do you have any beauty-related tips (or tips in general) on planning destination weddings? 


    In planning this whole wedding, I was trying so hard to make everything perfect and found myself so stressed about every little thing and forgot the whole point of it. In the end, all I wanted was just to marry the person I love, nothing should be more important.


    During the wedding day, it took a real effort not to think about all the things and just enjoy my day with my husband. The whole journey of the planning until the day itself has to be with him. There is so much pressure from society nowadays, with everyone telling me their opinions and I realized that underneath all that stress, my wedding day was going to be the best day of my life, not because of the perfect flowers or the perfect dress, etc., but because I was marrying my best friend and celebrating it with the people whom we loved most.

    Did you have to fly your guests and suppliers to Spain?


    No. Let’s be real, unless we’re big time millionaires, we couldn’t have possibly flown every single person on our account. Luckily our friends and family totally understood and we were very happy to see that quite a good number actually made it to our special day.


    Where did you have your bachelorette party? Who organized it?


    My bachelorette was held in Costa Brava, in a coastal town close to Barcelona. It was planned by my girlfriends here in Spain! They surprised me one day in my room and totally “kidnapped” me for the weekend. It was a perfect mix of a super fun but also relaxing weekend. Since my friends back home and sisters couldn’t be there, they also organized dinner and drinks with all the girls on the week of my wedding.


    What was your hair and makeup look like? Was there a certain look or peg you followed?


    I had my hair up for the ceremony and had it down right after. I didn’t want it too tight so I followed pegs on Pinterest of loose and messy hair dos with braids and curls. It was a messy bun, with a braid slightly covering my ear, and had some curls falling on the side.


    After the ceremony I took out the bun leaving my hair slightly wavy and curly on the tips and left the braid on the side. I wanted my makeup generally simple, but with emphasis on the eyes. Dark shades were used around the crease to put more depth and then some shimmer on the lids. The rest was simple and natural.

    Small tip: A massage would be great to relax and calm the nerves. Treat yourself to anything that can help disconnect. I barely slept the night before so it’s important to do whatever it takes to get that beauty sleep! Also, bridesmaids are not chosen only to be there and look pretty on your day, they play a big role in making sure everything goes smooth during the day and do their part during the months of planning. My bridesmaids and maids of honor helped me so much in preparing the things I needed and were also there to support me emotionally. Destination weddings are more difficult to coordinate because of the logistics, and informing your guests, so I suggest you let them know at least 9-10 months before so they can plan & prepare an easy way to communicate and forward info to everyone all at once and answer everybody’s questions.

    The monochromatic look is still huge, and it's actually one of the easiest looks to do because there's no need to figure out which hue goes with what. All it takes is one key product, and you can wear that same hue or even the same product on your eyes, cheeks and lips! For this particular look, we chose a soft pink because it's a hue that's universally appealing and complements a wide range of skin tones. To get this look, all you need is a good foundation like Maybelline's Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation (P399) to even out your skin, a brow mascara like Pink Sugar's Honey I'm Good Brow Gel in Brunette (P349) to groom brows, and a fab pink lipstick which, aside from serving its usual purpose, can also be used as color on your lids and doubles as a cream blush. We love Pink Sugar's HD lipstick (P299) because its pigment is strong so the color shows with just one swipe. To apply on your eyes, simply run the lipstick on the back of your hand, then use a sponge to lightly dab the color onto lids as well as cheeks. Remember to set with a translucent color since lipstick is cream-based, and is more prone to moving or creasing.

    Smoky eyes will always be around---especially for nights out when you want to highlight your peepers. The most important product for this look would be an eyeshadow palette. Palettes are great because you can create a variety of looks just by mixing different hues. L'Oréal Paris' La Palette Ombree (P800) is a keeper because it has a mix of light and dramatically dark shades that can transform your look from day to night instantly. Just remember, when doing smoky eyes, use the lighter shades as a base, then use the darker colors to build up the smoky effect. To perfect skin, use a foundation with good coverage like Pink Sugar's Our Lil' Secret Foundation (P399) which can also double as your concealer. Finish off with a swipe of nude lip color. we love Maybelline's Born With It shade from their Color Sensational line which is a steal at P299.

    Softly contoured and highlighted, healthy-looking skin will always make you look extra youthful. The key to getting this look is finding the right products and using them properly. Start by using a concealer like Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind Eraser (P399) to cover slight imperfections such as dark circles and blemishes, making sure to keep the application light and limited to visible flaws only. Afterwards, use a highlighting powder like L'Oréal Paris' Powder Glow Illuminator (P600) which has four hues that you can use to contour (brown shade) and highlight (lighter shades). Use the contouring shade right under your cheek bone, jaw line, hairline, and temples, then the highlighting shades on your brow bone, top of cheekbones, and the tips of your nose, cupid's bow, and chin. Lips can be painted with a neutral hue like L'Oréal Paris' Infallible Le Rouge in Unending Kiss (P500).

  32. Eye Looks You Can Achieve with Pink Sugar's New Quad Squad[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.83"]

    For those of you who aren't as familiar, Pink Sugar is one of the most popular local beauty brands today that keeps the Filipina beauty in mind when they formulate their products. Finding the right balance of quality and affordability, they recently launched three eye shadow quads in incredibly flattering colors. Here they are and how you can use them!


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.83"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.83"] Café Latte [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.83"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Pink-Sugar-Eye-Candy-Eyeshadow-Quad-Café-Latte.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/eyes/pink-sugar-eye-candy-eyeshadow-quad/" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.83" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.83" custom_margin="20px|||"]

    This palette is on the brown side for a put-together office look. Place the lightest shade on the inner corner of your eyes and on the brow bone, then lightly press the next shade into the eyelid, before dabbing the coppery shade into the center of the lid and blending it a little. Use the darkest shade on your crease, and diffuse the harsh lines with a fluffy brush. The results? A beautiful warm look perfect for work!

    This palette is super fresh and follows the latest Korean trend of having peach or pink hues on your eyelids. This quad can help you achieve that fresh peachy glow. All you have to do is place the lightest color on the inner crease and brow bone, then press the light brown on your eyelids. Apply the peachy color to follow the super trendy look of toasted peach that is so hot right now, then use the purple shade sparingly on the crease and blend.

    Turn up the smokiness that's perfect for a fun evening with this gorgeous matte palette of friendly browns and grays similar to that of Urban Decay's Basics without the hefty price tag. Simply use the light shadow on the corners, place the light brown shade all over the lid and brow bone, the darkest brown on the lid, and the black shadow on the crease and along the lower lash line. The trick to this is the blending, so be sure to blend it well using a fluffy brush or your ring finger!

  33. Valerie Chua: Life Imitating Art[et_pb_section fb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat"][et_pb_column type="1_3" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/valerie-chua-3.x40925.png" _builder_version="3.0.85"][/et_pb_image][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/valerie-chua-4.x40925.png" _builder_version="3.0.85"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.85"]

    To let your life imitate your own art is to understand that somewhere in that representation is a deep and personal connection of the artist and the ideas that he or she concretized. Art is easily defined as the expression of one's self and the experiences and learnings one goes through to be able to form a masterpiece that others can relate to, and that reflects the culture, environment, and society one lives in. Often, we're led to believe that it's the other way around---that art is inspired by what happens in life. But when you take the thoughts and emotions evoked by a single artwork, and recreate and apply these into everyday life, one can surmise that the idea of life imitating art is perfectly acceptable.


    Whichever side you believe, the idea of imitation comes from the concept of relating a piece of fiction to the world. And in this month's special issue highlighting Beauty and Art, we did exactly that---we took the artist and transformed her by using the objects in her artworks as inspiration---putting her on a pedestal, and capturing different sides of her that we don't always get to see on a regular basis.


    If the name Valerie Chua rings a bell, it's because she's become one of the most recognized and sought-after artists that the country can boast on an international scene, having been featured on both local and international magazines such as Preview, Rogue, DPI Magazine Taiwan, Red Tricycle USA, and Designare Singapore, and doing commissioned works for renowned clients like SK II, Clinique, and Christian Louboutin. Learning about her creative process and how she feels towards her art was something I got to excitedly relate with, coming from a Humanities course as well.


    Read more about Valerie Chua in our first cover story, where she talks about how it all started for her as an artist, her transition from watercolor to oil, and her favorite artworks and artists.

    How did it all start for you as an artist? And when exactly did it start?


    Hmmm...it was in college. Around 2nd year college. I was entering a Marketing degree but at that point, I was sort of bored in school. I was the studious type who got good grades and was always in the library. But for some reason, I got tired. So I started drawing on my handouts instead! Every day, I would bring a new art material to try until one day, I had watercolors already in the library. It sort of started from there.


    Ever since, I really liked graphic novels. I like the covers, and a lot of artists' covers, they're mostly illustrations. Sometimes, they do ink and watercolor and I like that sort of style. So I tried to do that in school, and I felt that I wanted to be an illustrator eventually and do comic book covers. But my skill level wasn't there yet. So it started from there. When I graduated, I graduated from Humanities. I shifted to Humanities from Marketing. I just kept drawing and drawing, and I kept posting it online. Until one day, a creative agency was able to find my work online. They were the first people who hired me, and it was a really good commissioned work. After that, other people also saw my work online and the commissioned work just continued afterwards.


    So everything started online?

    Yeah.

    I bet even as a little girl, you already had the talent to just draw. Did you look up to anyone then?

    Yeah. I have a cousin---she used to always draw before, then I would copy her. She had a fascination with drawing dolls that were very triangular, so I would just copy that. And then later on, she had Sailor Moon artworks and I would even trace it.

    What do you love most about painting or illustrating?

    Trying to come up with ideas, and bringing ideas to life. What I like about it is the challenge, because you need to concretize an idea---and for me, that's a very hard thing to do. How to visually concretize an idea. I enjoy the challenge of doing that.


    How would you describe your signature style?


    For my watercolor work, very ethereal and soft. Very comforting. For my oil paintings, very different. It's very heavy. But in some way, it's still about comfort. Because my work as a painter, I usually explain it to people who ask about the paintings---I always say that it's about history, it's about knowledge. How people gather information, and they try to twist this information in order to make it comfortable for themselves. This is just information that you gather, and since you don't know the complete information about the history of it, we try to fill in those gaps with things that will make you feel comfortable about the information.

    What would you say was your first big break? Would it be when the agency discovered your work or is there something bigger than that that you'll always remember?

    I guess my work for SK II. That was the biggest. That was my biggest client. Because it was an agency from Singapore who contacted me. Though the actual work was never published publicly, because they used it in-house. But for me, that was the biggest. I had Skype call conferences and everything. It was my first time to do that. And in terms of timelines, they required 17 illustrations, which I had to finish in one week. So that was also my most fast-paced work.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row custom_padding="23.5938px|0px|23px|0px" _builder_version="3.0.85"][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.85"]

    Did you get to sleep?

    Yes, I was able to. Maybe 3 to 4 hours a day. (laughs)


    Among your artworks or paintings, which one would be your favorite? And why?


    I guess the more recent works, because I feel like it's something that I never thought I'd be able to do. When I was transitioning from watercolor to oil painting, I had a really hard time adjusting because oil is very different from watercolor. Before, when I started out, my ideas weren't very---like it was harder to translate the idea because you're not in full command of the medium. But recently, I think my works just became stronger because I kept pushing it. So for me, the recent works---the ones I've exhibited this year, those are my favorite ones.


    Is it the same for artists---like for me, coming from a Creative Writing course, we did a lot of writing in college. So sometimes, I look back at some of my works and I cringe and ask myself why I wrote it. Do you feel the same way as an artist?


    Yes! It's the same! It's the same that you always look at your older works and then wonder why you did it. But mostly, I think about the skill. Back then, I'm like, "Wow, this is really bad work. I can't believe people liked this."

    What made you transition from watercolor to oil?

    Actually, I met an artist. He sort of scouted me online. And then, one day, he just messaged me. I even got scared of him because I thought he was a stalker. (laughs) He's the one handling my works now. He saw my watercolor works and then he told me, "Mag oil ka, mag oil ka." So I guess I also liked the challenge. I've been doing watercolor for a long time, and then suddenly I did oil. And it's very different. So I wanted to overcome that.

    What's your creative process when starting on a new project?

    For a personal project?

    Whether it's personal or for a client---is it the same?

    Slightly different. If there's a client, especially if it's an agency, there's an art director. So they already give me the look of the work and what they need. Then there's some resources, like the models needed (if they have models), and other references. They give me the pegs. Then I construct according to that.


    If I'm doing personal works, I usually do thumbnail works. They're small sketches in a notebook. Or sometimes, these ideas don't come every day. So pretend, I'm just walking and all of a sudden, I have an idea. I usually just write a sentence on my cellphone.


    Oh, same! When I have a story idea, I write certain lines.


    Yeah, but for me, since it's hard to draw on the phone, I usually just write it down. When I get home, that's when I construct the image. If it's a small sketch, I try to refine it and turn it into a bigger sketch. Or sometimes, I use the computer. Because sometimes, it's easier if you have existing images already. Then you can work from that.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.85"][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.85"]

    Where do you usually draw inspiration from when starting a personal project?

    Hmmm...inspiration. (laughs) Where do I get my inspiration? Actually before, it was kind of different. I drew inspiration from everyday objects. Then I try to transform it or, if I'm in an artist block, I had my go-to objects like birds. If I can't think of anything, it was usually birds or flowers. But recently for my paintings, I stick to a certain scope. So right now, I'm working with historical materials. I play around with it. And since it's unlimited, it's fun!


    How long does it usually take you to finish a personal artwork if you're not pressured by deadlines?


    The watercolor, really fast. Two days, I can finish them. If it's a commissioned work, slightly longer because of revisions. But if it's personal, just 2 to 3 days. Though there are instances where I have a sketch from the previous year, but I never touched it, and then I go back to it the following year. I have those. Like super old drawings. Actually, I don't
    reserve them. Sometimes, I just lose interest in them because I feel like it won't turn out the way I want it to. But then the following year when I look back at it, I think, "Ah, okay pala ito."


    I feel the same way about my stories. I just leave them be, until I feel ready to come back to them.


    Yeah, and it's actually very important. It gives you a newer perspective towards your own work.

    Who's your favorite artist both local and international?


    I grew up with the work of James Jean, David Mack, Yoshitaka Amano, and Rebecca Guay. Locally, there's Rom Villaseran. I was into Western graphic novels. I loved illustration work that seamlessly transitioned into fine art. My current favorites are varied. Euan Uglow, Cy Twombly, Andrew Wyeth, Felix Hidalgo, and Jason Montinola.


    Besides painting and illustrating, are there any other forms of art that you're into or want to try?


    Well, I used to sing a lot and play the keyboards. But I stopped.


    Would you like to try again or just go back to it?


    Maybe, yeah. Until 2015, I actually had a keyboard in the studio. Every time I took breaks, I would sing and play the keyboards just to break the routine of drawing and painting. But ever since work started getting heavier, I stopped. I put away the keyboards and brought it home, because my studio was too crammed. Probably, I would go back to it. Maybe. But for some reason, I had a love-hate relationship with my work. There are days where I hated my work. So I'd leave it to the side and just sing. But now, I kind of love my work that I forget about it.

  35. Smooth Operator: How To Prevent Your Concealer from Caking[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Cake-proofing your concealer should be easy with these simple steps!

    Manila weather, low-quality concealers, and dry skin are just some of the many reasons why we end up with a ghastly-looking under-eye area. First things first: Manila weather is notorious for being unbelievably humid---this means that the makeup that we apply always stands to melt and move! In order to prevent this problem from plaguing us on a daily basis, it's important to prep, prep, prep!


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    PREP


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/5-Best-Ways-To-Get-Rid-Of-Under-Eye-Wrinkles-moisturize-the-eye-area.x40925.jpg" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.77" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    To prep the under eye area, you must first moisturize! Lines under the eye are much more obvious when the skin lacks hydration so make sure to apply just the right amount of eye cream (try the Age Miracle Eye Cream Dual Action, P499) because it absorbs quickly). Wait a minute or two, then you're ready to apply your concealer.


    [/et_pb_text][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/20229762-PONDS-AGE-MIRACLE-EYE-CREAM-DUAL-ACTION-20ML-8851932179904.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/skin/ponds-age-miracle-eye-cream-dual-action-20ml/" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.77" max_width="68%" module_alignment="center" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    CONCEAL


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Concealer.x40925.jpg" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.77" max_width="66%" module_alignment="center" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Choosing the right concealer is key. Avoid concealers that are either too sheer or too opaque. Ideally, a concealer should provide just the right amount of coverage without looking too heavy. Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Concealer, P399 and Aritaum's Full Cover Liquid Concealer, P429 work well because the former is armed with a micro-corrector applicator that helps in diminishing dark circles while the latter's pigment is strong and covers flaws effortlessly, yet still manages to look natural on skin.


    To apply, invest in a concealer brush to help spread the color in a precise and smooth manner. Another reason why we recommend using a brush for concealer application is because often times, there's a transference of oil or unnecessary moisture from fingertips to the under eye area, and this may cause a disruption in the formula of the concealer.

    Lastly, as with any liquid or cream formulation, it's a MUST to set the product with a powder. We love Banilla Co.'s Prime Primer Hydrating Finish Powder, P1050 because it goes on sheer, and doesn't add any more bulk to your under eye area. It also provides the area with extra hydration so you can be less worried about unsightly caking. We recommend using Colourpop's ultra-soft Small Fluff Brush as it's just the right size to get into that tiny area right under the eye.

    This November, you’ll be seeing our #CalyxtaGirl, Valerie Chua, in a totally different angle as she becomes a recreation of her very own art. For her first look, she pulls off this peachy monochromatic ensemble with a gorgeous crown of flowers on her head---looking like a lovely and enchanting deity as seen in her painting.


    Find out how to get the look by reading up on these steps:

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.83"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/Ellana-Blur-Makeup-Primer.x69427.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/ellana-blur-makeup-primer/" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.83" max_width="69%" module_alignment="center" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.83" custom_margin="20px|||"]

    1. Start off by properly prepping your skin with a primer of your choice, depending on your skin type. If you have pores you wish to blur for a flawless canvas to your makeup application, try the ELLANA BLUR MAKEUP PRIMER, P599. This is perfect as well for those with oily skin, since it has an oil-absorbing formula that stays matte all day.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.83"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.83" custom_margin="20px|||"]

    2. For a demi-matte finish that has good coverage and staying power, try the L’OREAL PARIS INFALLIBLE PRO-MATTE 24HR FOUNDATION, P700. It gives off that “my skin but better” finish since it looks au natural!


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/LOreal-Paris-Infallible-Pro-Matte-Foundation-103-Natural-Buff.x69427.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/loreal-paris-infallible-pro-matte-24hr-foundation/" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.83" max_width="65%" module_alignment="center" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.83"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Pink-Sugar-Our-Lil-Secret-Concealer-2-.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/pink-sugar-lil-secret-concealer-2/" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.83" max_width="78%" module_alignment="center" custom_margin="|||" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.83" custom_margin="20px|||"]

    3. If you have dark undereye circles you wish to conceal, give the PINK SUGAR OUR LIL’ SECRET CONCEALER 2, P349, a try! It’s a creamy yet lightweight concealer with full-coverage that really does its job at brightening those undereyes.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.83"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.83" custom_margin="20px|||"]

    4. Make sure to set your concealer to avoid creasing or ending up with a cakey undereye. Check out the COTY AIRSPUN LOOSE FACE POWDER, P630, which is a translucent loose powder that hides tiny lines, wrinkles, and blemishes with its ultra smooth cloudlike softness.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Coty-Airspun-Loose-Face-Powder-Translucent.x69427.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/coty-airspun-loose-face-powder-65g-translucent/" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.83" max_width="73%" module_alignment="center" custom_margin="|||" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.83"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.83" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.83"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/anti-aging.x69427.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/eyes/urban-decay-eyeshadow-primer-anti-aging/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.83" max_width="81%" module_alignment="center" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.83" custom_margin="20px|||"]

    5. Many tend to overlook this step but applying an eyeshadow primer before moving on to playing up those lids is the key to making those colors stay in place. Plus, it helps in bringing out the pigments better to make those colors pop! A must-try is the best-selling URBAN DECAY EYESHADOW PRIME ANTI AGING, P1,580, that delivers 24 hours of creaseless and vibrant eye color.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.83"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.83"]

    6. For the peachy monochromatic look like Valerie’s, go bold and play with the PAPRIKA MATTE AND SHIMMER EYESHADOW PALETTE, P1,895. Apply the shade, Mustard Yellow Matte, on your eyelids. Plus you can also use this same shade on your cheeks to really achieve that monochromatic look!


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Paprika-Matte-and-Shimmer-Eyeshadow-Palette.x69427.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/eyes/paprika-matte-shimmer-eyeshadow-palette/" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.83" max_width="73%" module_alignment="center" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.83"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Tarte-Skin-Twinkle-Lighting-Palette.x69427.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/tarte-skin-twinkle-lighting-palette/" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.83" max_width="82%" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.83" custom_margin="20px|||"]

    7. Get that glow by applying some of the TARTE SKIN TWINKLE LIGHTING PALETTE, P2,200, on the tops of your cheeks, nose bridge, and on the inner corner of your eyes to instantly brighten up your face.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.83"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.83" custom_margin="15px|||"]

    8. Fill in your brows using the MALISSA KISS SUPER SHAPE ULTRA HD BROW PENCIL, P349.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/Malissa-Kiss-Super-Shape-Ultra-HD-Brow-Pencil-Choco.x69427.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/eyes/malissa-kiss-super-shape-ultra-hd-brow-pencil/" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.83" max_width="58%" module_alignment="center" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.83"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Pink-Sugar-HD-Lipstick-Butter.x40925.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/lips/pink-sugar-hd-lipstick/" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.83" max_width="68%" module_alignment="center" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.83" custom_margin="20px|||"]

    9. Lastly, put on a lippie that is the same shade as the Mustard Yellow Matte on your lids and cheeks to perfectly achieve the peachy monochromatic look! Try the PINK SUGAR HD LIPSTICK in Butter, P299, that has a creamy formula that glides on effortlessly. Plus, it’s formulated with Vitamin E and Shea Butter to keep your pretty puckers soft and moisturized!

    You'd have to be living under a shell to not realize how much our world needs our help. And we here at Calyxta are always proud to showcase beauty brands that are doing their part---whether it be through their ingredients, packaging, or livelihood projects. Here are some local brands worth supporting:

    HUMAN HEART NATURE


    Human Nature is a proudly Philippine-made social enterprise brand of natural beauty and personal care products, driven by its love for the country, the poor, and the environment. Human Nature works hard with local farmers to get only the purest, organic ingredients for their products. Each business decision they make first looks at its impact on the environment. They are one of the few brands out there that creates shampoos and sunblock that are biodegradable and won't harm the corals. We like:

    PILI BEAUTY


    Pili Beauty: Another local brand doing its part to support the country is Pili Beauty. PILI works closely with Bicol's farmers to protect the forest where pili trees thrive. All work is done with the tree's best interests at heart and they do not use any harmful pesticides, chemicals, or other synthetic materials to grow the trees or force them to create pili nuts. By making the research labs, marketing, and distribution arms available to the farmers, they are offered a sustainable livelihood and a better way to take care of the community. We highly recommend trying Pili!

    Formulated with natural pili and elemi oil, this lip balm nourishes your lips while giving them a pop of color for that beautiful, kissable pout. The berry shade is a must in my bag at all times.

    Alon: Aside from making their own beauty products, Alon curates other island lifestyle products, especially being a staunch supporter of Pinoy talent and local businesses. Alon also works to empower rural women to help support their families. We like:

  41. Kiehl's Launches their Super Multi-Corrective Cream[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.83"]

    As an avid fan of Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Serum, it was incredibly exciting for me to hear about the newest product they recently launched: the Super Multi-Corrective Cream. The name alone is powerful enough to make you want to know more about it---especially for those of us who wish to delay our skin's aging process for as long as possible.



    In an intimate event at Kallista Nail Pamper Lounge in S Maison where beauty editors and bloggers were given a full pampering session (foot spa, hand spa, manicure, and pedicure!) using some of Kiehl's favorite products, we were given a better understanding of how the brand came out with the Super Multi-Corrective Cream.



    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.83"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/kiehls-super-multi-correcting-cream-6.x40925.jpg" _builder_version="3.0.83" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/kiehls-super-multi-correcting-cream-3.x40925.jpg" _builder_version="3.0.83" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.83"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.83"]

    Kiehl's chemists took on a multi-functional approach and began to determine which ingredients that when put together in one formula, would work together to visibly correct multiple signs of skin aging---from our skin's contours, to firmness, to texture and elasticity, to wrinkles and fine lines. These ingredients include Jasmonic Acid, to help correct wrinkles, fine lines, loss of suppleness and elasticity, while gently smoothing and retexturizing the skin's surface, Beech Tree Extract, to improve the skin's firmness, plumpness, and density, and Fragmented Hyaluronic Acid, to reinforce and retain the skin's natural moisture. Together, they successfully came up with a powerhouse formulation now known as their Super Multi-Corrective Cream.

    It's clinically proven to work in just two weeks, and was designed to lift, sculpt, retexturize, smooth, and moisturize the skin. If you plan to incorporate it into your evening skin care routine, it's best to use it after you apply your serum---to help lock it in. So yes, it's perfect to use after the Midnight Recovery Serum!

    It's a sad fact that I have the finest hair. As a child, my grandmother used to stroke my hair and say it felt like silk. While this may be good for shine, I have always had issues keeping hair looking like it's full of body. The average blowout goes flat on me in two hours or less. Here are some hair products I have found to help make life with fine, flat hair a little easier. You might also want to check out Frances' article on how to maintain volume for fine and flat hair!

    MY AMAZING BLOW DRY SECRET SHAMPOO 300ML, (P1,250)

    This is a coconut oil-based, water-wicking shampoo that cuts blow dry time for faster styling. For my oily, fine hair, I've learned that the more clarifying and less creamy the shampoo is, the better. I need lots of suds to help remove oil and make hair lighter and fluffier. What I also love about this shampoo is that it helps make my hair dry faster.

    DOVE HAIR THERAPY CONDITIONER COLOR CARE, (P293)

    Since I color my hair regularly, I also like using conditioner that will keep my color vibrant longer. I do like Dove's Hair Therapy Conditioner Color Care because it contains Vibrant Colour Lock technology and a UV filter that nourishes hair and keeps color vibrant for up to 8 weeks. I use very little and only apply from mid-hair down. I also use cold water to rinse and lock in the shine.

    I never quite understood dry shampoo until I began to see it as a way to continue to boost volume throughout the day. I love Dove's dry shampoo because it absorbs oil between traditional washes, so hair looks and feels refreshed without a super strong fragrance!

  43. Calyxta Conversations with Maureen Wroblewitzhttps://youtu.be/Sj9TlmMokmo

  44. Maureen Wroblewitz: Model Mademoiselle[et_pb_section fb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Most girls at 19 years old prefer going out with their girl friends to have a late night out, especially with the nightlife scenery in Metro Manila. But unlike most girls, Maureen Wroblewitz finds herself enjoying a fun night of staying in and having a good laugh with her closest friends.


    In the last three weeks of uncovering different facets of Mau, we've seen her glammed up as a character straight out of Riverdale in a prim and preppy ensemble while talking about her beauty routine, a Rouged Rockabilly looking extra fierce with her plaid, cropped top and sharing a bit more about being half-Filipina and half-German, and a sophisticated Pin-Up looking every bit of the naturally captivating young woman that she is while looking back at the biggest challenges she's had to face while competing in
    Asia's Next Top Model. We've also learned the true strength of her character despite her otherwise shy and soft-spoken ways.


    This week's final cover story shows Mau in one of her most compelling elements---a genuine Model Mademoiselle made to look like she was just pulled out of the golden age of TV in the 1950s, complete with a stunning ball gown and a fascinator made by New York-based designer and hat maker, Carmina de Dios. She reveals a little bit more about her dreams, being a fan girl herself, not getting used to the attention that people give, and what advice she can give to young girls aspiring to be a top model like herself.

    If modelling didn't work out for you, what do you see yourself doing?

    Acting.

    Is there anything you simultaneously want to do outside of modelling? Like right now?

    It's acting. I really want to try acting.

    What's your dream photoshoot or campaign? Something that you haven't done yet, but really want to do.

    Vogue. I want to be on the cover of Vogue. I think it's every model's dream.

    Who's your biggest inspiration?

    My mom. Always been and will always be my number one inspiration and motivation. Everything I do is to make her proud.


    Who are your local and international role models?


    I look up to Cara Delavigne. She's just herself. She doesn't care what other people think. It's like, "Oh yeah. This is me. This is my thing." When people judge her, it's like, whatever. And then, I can say Pia Wurtzbach because she really fought for her spot. She's very hard-working.

    Who international designers would you like to walk for?

    Prada. Gucci. (laughs) Lots of brands.

    You're the youngest contestant to win Asia's Next Top Model Cycle 5, and that's a huge accomplishment. But do you ever feel like you're missing out on the normal things that girls your age are doing? Or is there anything that young women are doing that you're not able to do because of work?

    It's funny because when you're 18 or 19, that's usually when you go out a lot. But I already did that at an early age. In Germany, I started going out early. So, it's like, I'm good. Now, I just like staying in and hanging out with friends.

    Where do you see yourself five years from now? Like what will you be doing?

    I want to be somewhere abroad. I don't know where yet. And I want to be travelling a lot for work. That's my dream. I want to travel a lot.


    How has your life changed since you won?


    I've been a lot busier, and the thing with a lot of people recognizing me? It's still weird. It's like, "Why? How do you know me? Why do you want a photo with me?" (laughs) Because I also used to be the biggest fan girl, so now that the tables have turned, it's so weird. I still try to spend time with the same people I hung out with before I won. It helps me stay grounded. I always want to be that. I want to be approachable. I don't want people to think that I'm better than them; that I'm on another level. I want them to see that I'm also human.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    What do you do to maintain your model-esque figure?

    I don't get to exercise that much. And I don't have a diet. I eat only as much as I can. I try not to indulge. Like if I'm full, sometimes I'm like, "Aww, I want some dessert." And I want this and that. But I just go for fruits or something healthier. It's not really a diet. It's a lifestyle. But yeah, that's how I keep my figure because I can't workout.

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Okay, last question. What advice can you give young girls who are aspiring to be models?

    I can just say that you really have to be physically and mentally prepared. Especially if you're insecure about your body, modelling might not be like the best thing because people will always pick on that and say, "Ah, you maybe need to lose weight. Or change this, change that." And then you see things that you haven't seen before about yourself and your body. It can be a tiring job---especially if you have long shoots. You have to prepare. But it's also fun. If it's really your dream, you should fight for it. Don't let other people bring you down and tell you that you're not going to make it. Just take that as a motivation and really fight for your dreams. If it's really meant for you, then it will happen.

  45. Ingredients 101: Snail Slime[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.83"]

    There are certain words that make us squirm, and "slime" is probably one of them. So when confronted with a skin care product that has "slime" on its label, you'd most likely scratch your head and drop that jar quick. But if you knew how beneficial this ingredient is, you might just want to bathe in it! Here's what you need to know about snail slime. Even our September #CalyxtaGirl, Lauren Reid, had something to say about it!


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.83"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.83"]

    Known as snail mucin, the slime excreted by these slow-moving creatures protects their tender skin from UV rays, keeps moisture locked in, fights bacteria, and heals wounds that snails get as it crawls on the ground. On human skin, this ingredient does the same job. It protects skin from the sun and frees it from radicals. By killing germs, pimples are prevented while existing ones heal faster. Rich in hyaluronic acid, it infuses skin with lots of moisture. Proteins and copper peptides stimulate collagen and elastin production. All of these actions result to plumper, clearer, smoother, brighter, and more moisturized skin!


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Snail-Mucin.x40925.jpg" _builder_version="3.0.83" custom_margin="12px|||" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.83"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.83"]

    While snail mucin is now known as an ingredient present in Asian skin care products, it's not a discovery Asia can claim nor is it even a recent find. Snail slime has been used since Ancient Greece as medicine---externally, it treats burns while internally, it soothes ulcers. Yes, it's so safe, you can swallow the stuff! The slime you see trailing after snails may look gross but remember: it's just an ingredient in skin care products---you won't open a jar and find literal slime in it, so no need to get nauseated! In fact, you ought to try snail slime out and see your skin get better!

  46. Vintage-Inspired Hairstyles to Try[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.83"]

    If you're like any other Filipina preparing for the holidays, you must have already started thinking about what looks you'll be wearing for the numerous Christmas parties you'll be attending. Instead of looking at current trends, why not try some tried and tested vintage hairstyles that will add a touch of glamour to any event!

    Veronica Lake Waves

    We like: TONI&GUY HAIR STYLING GLAMOUR MOISTURIZING SPRAY (P375.00)A hydrating hair spray used for styling. Gives a glossy, lustrous finish.



    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.83"]

    Hollywood actress Veronica Lake was known for her beautiful waves on her long, blonde hair. You can accomplish this with a big barrel curling iron and holding spray. Make sure to curl only the bottom of your locks! This style works best for long hair that reaches close to the bra line.



    [/et_pb_text][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/Glamour_moisturising_shine_spray_150ml-LRG.x40925.png?x69427" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/hair-nails/toniguy-glamour-moisturizing-spray-150ml/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.83" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.83"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.83" text_font="||||||||" text_font_size="18px"]

    We like: TONI&GUY HAIR STYLING PREP VOLUME PLUMPING MOUSSE (P435.00) Lightweight mousse that adds body and bounce to your hair.



    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.83"]

    Think big headbands and sleek pulled back hair with a bit of body. This may require some mouse to bring up the volume and some teasing once hair is combed back.



    [/et_pb_text][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/Plumping-Mousse-LRG-1.x40925.png?x69427" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/hair-nails/toniguy-prep-volume-plumping-mousse-204g/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.83" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.83"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.83" text_font="||||||||" text_font_size="18px"]

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.83"]

    Take your bandanas out for a spin and play with this fun updo---just like our October #CalyxtaGirl! The important part of this style is to curl your bangs and make sure they stay that way. Bobbi pins and hairspray are also your best friends.

    We like: TRESEMME HAIR SPRAY EXTRA HOLD 360ML WITH FREE STYLING TOOLS (P530.75) because it comes with all the styling tools you need to make the mod look come together!



    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.83"]

    Mod hairstyles are known for their vavavoom body and side-swept bangs. You're going to need mousse, hairspray, and some teasing to make it happen.

  47. Real Bride: Mary Joy Enriquez-Soliman[et_pb_section fb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.83" inline_fonts="Dancing Script"]

    What’s the inspiration behind your wedding look? Did you have any hair and makeup pegs?


    It was always my dream to have a fairytale wedding. It perfectly fits my wedding's venue, too---which is the Grand Palazzo Royale, since it really has that royal vibe to it. And so, a tiara was added to my look to achieve my princess-themed wedding.


    Who designed your wedding gown, and how did you come up with the style? How long did it take to create or find the perfect wedding dress?


    Finding the perfect wedding dress required a certain magical feeling, emotion, and lots of prayers. Hahaha! Thank God, I found him. One of the best designers in the Philippines - Mak Tumang. He makes the most beautiful wedding dresses.  I wanted a princess cut kind of gown and he really exceeded my expectations. It took six months for the dress to look perfect.


    How did you choose your hair and makeup artist?


    Mariah Camaya Santos was referred to me by my friends and she has really good reviews from all the brides she’s worked with.


    What lip color did you choose for the wedding day?


    Mariah retouched my lipstick throughout the day. But from what I remember, it was like an old rose or a magenta shade.


    [/et_pb_text][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2017-01-28_WD_JJ_P1_288.x40925.jpg" _builder_version="3.0.83" custom_margin="|||" custom_padding="|||"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/16427294_10154862712489985_6199516289025209925_n.x40925.jpg" _builder_version="3.0.83"][/et_pb_image][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.83" inline_fonts="Dancing Script,Cuprum"]

    What was in your wedding day makeup kit/pouch?


    My BB cream, lipstick, blush on, etc.


    What were the preparations you did for your skin prior to the wedding day? Did you go to a skincare center regularly? What kind of services did you have done? Is this something you would recommend to other brides-to-be?


    To be honest, I would’ve loved to go on a regular facial before the wedding. But for some reason, it just didn't fit my schedule. I recommend really finding the time to pamper your skin before the special day.


    What was the best beauty advice you received that helped you prepare for your wedding?


    Always hydrate your skin. Hydrate your body. I also did facial exercises for my face---in the hopes of it looking thinner on the big day. Haha!




    "I recommend really finding the time to pamper your skin before the special day."

    How about in terms of fitness? What did you do months before the wedding to stay in shape and make sure your wedding dress fit perfectly? Did you enroll in a gym or fitness center? What was your diet like?


    I was chubby before we got engaged. So, months before the wedding, I really had to push myself. As hard as it was for me to go on a diet, I had to do it. I went to the gym, and enrolled myself to Zumba classes. My breakfast, sometimes lunch, were oatmeal and fruits. No rice. Strictly salads for dinner. But I did have my cheat days, too.


    Did you have your nails done? If so, where? Would you recommend this nail salon to others?


    Yes, I had my nails done. Nails Glow is one of the recommended nail salons in Pampanga, so that’s where I went.

    What was your biggest takeaway from your wedding day? Do you have any beauty-related tips you’d like to share to upcoming brides?


    For soon-to-be brides, it is very important not to stress yourself too much just to look beautiful on your wedding day. The secret is just to be happy and grateful on that day. Beauty will glow from within because people will see the love you have for the person you are going to marry---the man of your dreams. Seize the moment and everything will follow. ️

    My Amazing Hair products are made to help make life easier. Their cult-favorite Blow Dry Secret range is intended to help speed up the evaporation of water on your hair so you can just blow dry for half the amount of time---keeping your hair healthier for longer. I was invited to try these products from the brand and I have to say---I was pleasantly surprised with what I experienced!

    My Amazing Blow Dry Secret Shampoo and Conditioner

    This duo did a great job of clarifying my hair strands and removing all the oil and hair product build up. The shampoo offered a lot of suds and left my hair feeling squeaky-clean! The conditioner was surprisingly light, but did leave my hair feeling moisturized. I really liked the light floral scent, too.

    This blue bottle of leave-in conditioner wasn't greasy at all. I sprayed a bit on my hands and spread it on my hair from right above my ears downwards. Hair felt super soft after blow drying with this product.

    I try to use serums sparingly because I find that they leave my hair feeling greasy by the end of the day. But this one was super phenomenal: light and leaves a shine factor that may require the use of sunglasses. Definitely a keeper!

    This is the star product of the entire line and I have to say that it really does help cut blow drying time by a good five minutes. The secret is in its coconut oil molecules, which encourage water molecules to dehydrate faster. After a few days of use, my hair felt healthier with volume! I highly recommend grabbing any of these wonder products on the site before they get sold out!

  50. Battle of the Best Mascaras[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    It's amazing what a few swipes of mascara can do to brighten up your look and give you the confidence to face anything. In fact, just a little bit of mascara before heading out in the morning instantly removes any trace of sleepiness or exhaustion. But with so many formulations in the market, it's hard to tell which one is best suited for your needs. We at Calyxta have decided to break it down into three categories so you're armed with the right mascara knowledge.

  51. Brow Wow: How to Achieve Brushed Up Brows[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="1_3"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/zoe-kravitz-emmy-awards-in-los-angeles-09-17-2017-5.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/product-category/make-up/eyes/eyebrows/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.77" align="center" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    The Emmys show this year was a feast for our eyes as we saw a multitude of beauty looks we'd love to cop. But truthfully, we were most entranced by Zoe Kravitz's enviable brows which were the perfect example of how brushed up brows should be done.


    When it comes to brows, sadly, we aren't made equal. There are some who can get away with simply swiping some clear brow mascara on the brows they were born with while others have to groom their brows so that they look somewhat more presentable in a form or look that's more pleasing to the eye. Still, there are others who've over-tweezed, and still need a little filling in here and there, and this requires the use of a brow pencil. Whatever the state your brows are in, there's a product and technique you can use below in order to get this year's most requested makeup look: brushed-up brows.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="2_3"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    For brows that are already close-to-perfect---this means they're neither too bushy nor sparse and are the right length, use a brow mascara like Glossier's Boy Brow, P1150 which provides a good hold. Some mascaras simply provide color but Glossier's formula actually has a bit of a pull to it so that when you brush your brows up, they stay that way.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_3"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/boy-brow-1080x1080px.x40925.png?x69427" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/eyes/glossier-boy-brow/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.77" align="center" max_width="77%" module_alignment="center" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_3"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/Missha-Color-Setting-Browcara-Dark-Choco-Brown.x40925.jpg?x69427" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/eyes/missha-color-setting-browcara/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.77" max_width="74%" module_alignment="center" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    For girls who like to experiment with hair color, Missha's Color Setting Browcara, P390 is great because it has a lightening effect. A swipe will instantly camouflage dark hairs, and help you match your new hair color. Another reason why we love this brow mascara is because it's heavily pigmented---perfect for those of you with sparse brows that need a bit of volume. Just remember to swipe the mascara in an upwards manner so that you get a look that's both natural and youthful.

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="2_3"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Lastly, if your brows are the type that are "bitin," you may need a pencil to extend the shape further, and if necessary, draw hair-like strokes to fill in other gaps. In order to get the brushed-up look, you need to choose a pencil with some wax in it such as Malissa's Kiss Super Shape Ultra HD Brow Pencil, P349. The wax will help keep brow hairs in place so that as you apply the product (again, in an upwards manner), the strands will follow and stay that way.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_3"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/Malissa-Kiss-Super-Shape-Ultra-HD-Brow-Pencil-Choco.x40925.jpg?x69427" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/eyes/malissa-kiss-super-shape-ultra-hd-brow-pencil/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.77" align="center" max_width="77%" module_alignment="center" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77" custom_margin="30px|||"]

  52. A Guide to Choosing Your Bridesmaids[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Bridesmaids aren't exactly the most important part of a wedding. That would be you and your groom, and the officiant. But bridesmaids add lots of joy and glamour to a wedding party---with a bride surrounded by her very best friends, and everyone dressed in pretty gowns, a bride and her friends are definitely going to have fun!


    However, a bride must realize that not every girl friend can be a bridesmaid. First of all, the maid of honor and the bridesmaids are not there to look pretty. They're supposed to be, well, the bride's maid. That means she has to perform many tasks and if she's your funniest friend but she's hardly reliable, then perhaps you should rethink asking her to be part of your entourage.


    Here are the duties of a bridesmaid:


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    1. Help with pre-wedding tasks.

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2.x40925.jpg" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.77" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    There are many details to ensure a successful nuptial event and most brides go to a wedding organizer to go through the nitty-gritty. But if you have a lot of responsible friends, you don't have to hire an organizer at all since your bridesmaids can take on the wedding duties. Those can be anything from researching suppliers and accompanying you to check them out at bridal fairs, to stuffing invitations in envelopes and sending them out. One bridesmaid can be in charge of the guest list and of calling every single guest to follow up on RSVPs. Another bridesmaid can handle all the schedules---from gown fittings and supplier meetings.



    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    2. Pay for their gown and accessories.

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/IMG_4527.x40925.jpg?x69427" _builder_version="3.0.77" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]


    If you have a big budget and can outfit the whole entourage on your dime, then that's great! However, many brides may not have a budget for this and will need to ask friends to pay for their own gowns.



    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    3. Plan the bridal shower.

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/1-1.x40925.png" _builder_version="3.0.77" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

     The bride shouldn't throw herself a shower because that will just look selfish. It's up to your girl friends to throw you one. That means your bridesmaids should know what kind of party you like, be in charge of planning and paying for it, invite the guests and tell them what gifts you'd like, make sure you attend your shower, and take care of you in case you get drunk.

    4. Attend all pre-wedding events.

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/4-1.x40925.jpg" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.77" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    A bridesmaid is expected to be at all wedding-related gatherings, not just at the shower and wedding. So if you have a ceremony rehearsal, dinner rehearsal, and despedida de soltera, all members of your party should be present.



    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    5. Help the bride on her wedding day.

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/3-1.x40925.jpg" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.77" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Your bridesmaids, if they are really your dearest family and friends, would know that this is your big day. They will extend help whenever you need it. Check on the suppliers. Help the groomsmen usher in the guests. Distribute missalettes, flower petals, and bottles of bubble fluid. Record gifts received. Hold your lipstick, powder, and phone. Check your hair and makeup.


    Carry your bouquet. Bustle your train. Run last-minute errands for you. The works!



    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Your maid of honor and bridesmaids need to do a lot of work for you and they'll have to do this for free. They'll need to devote time, resources, and emotional support to you. Knowing that, you must choose carefully the people who will make up your entourage. If they have jobs that take up most of their time or if they are mothers to infants and young children, they most likely won't be able to help much. If they don't have a lot of money, they might not be able to pay for their gowns and accessories, hair and makeup, and throw you a shower. Take these into consideration before asking your friends and family to be your maid of honor and bridesmaids because you really don't want to impose yourself on anyone, even if it is your big day. Of course, your dearest friends and family may still want to be part of your wedding party, even if they can't give you much time or resources. Then it's up to you to decide what tasks to assign them. You can talk to them first, tell them these are what you expect of them, and see what they're willing to do. This way, expectations are managed and everyone is happy!

  53. Wedding Guest Makeup Tutorial[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    In any formal event, one of my favorite parts is always the "getting ready part," especially when I'm about to do my makeup. Back in the day, it used to be all about going to prom or someone's debut. But now, things are a little bit more different because I've been getting invited to more weddings. More weddings mean more chances of playing around with different makeup looks. But in my opinion, less is more, and as a wedding guest, I'm a fan of keeping the look as simple, as natural, and as fresh-looking as possible. Weddings are the worst time to experiment with a look you've never tried or you're unsure would look good on you. It's also not the time to hog the spotlight and be the center of attention with a bold or out-of-this-world ensemble!


    Here's a tried-and-tested combination of products that will stay on throughout the whole occasion---from ceremony to reception, and creates the freshest makeup look possible to highlight your features!


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77" text_font_size="18px"] ACE YOUR BASE [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/20838530_110019549691232_2430298744701321216_n.x40925.jpg" _builder_version="3.0.77" align="center" max_width="90%" /][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    The key to a smooth and flawless base is having the right products for your skin type AND for the wedding's location. Beach weddings in the Philippines, as I've experienced, are the worst for your makeup because the heat or humidity just causes you to break out into a sweat, and you'll find yourself wiping your forehead and nose every so often---especially if you have oily skin like me! My tip? Use a mattifying primer like the INGLOT MATTIFYING UNDER MAKEUP BASE and lightly sweep a long-lasting powder like L'OREAL'S INFALLIBLE PRO-MATTE 16-HOUR POWDER.


    On the other hand, if the wedding is in an airconditioned setting, it's time to bring out the rest of your base! Here are my tips and techniques in creating the perfect wedding guest makeup look:


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    After applying primer all over my face with my fingers, I dab RCMA'S 5 PART SERIES FAVORITES PALETTE for my foundation, and blend it out with a BEAUTYBLENDER.


    Once my foundation is blended, I like using a good concealer such as MAYBELLINE'S INSTANT AGE REWIND ERASER to highlight my forehead, middle of my nose, cupid's bow, and chin, and conceal my under eyes. I use the same BEAUTYBLENDER to blend it out.


    After concealing and highlighting, I take MAYBELLINE'S V-FACE DUO STICK to contour my cheeks, jawline, sides of my nose, and temples. This gives the illusion of a slimmer, more defined facial structure. Use the other side of your BeautyBlender to dab and diffuse harsh lines.


    As soon as I've applied all my creams and liquids (primer, foundation, concealer, and contour), I set it with a loose, translucent powder using a cult-favorite: RCMA'S NO-COLOR POWDER. I also use this powder to "bake" my under eyes and set the concealer in place, to prevent it from caking. Another benefit of "baking" is that it catches any fallouts when you're applying your eyeshadow, so it's easy to just brush it away.

    When I'm done with my base, the next part I always do are my eyebrows! I like using EYE OF HORUS' ULTIMATE BROW DEFINE to line my brows and add faux hair---especially on the tail-end. But for the inner parts of my brows, I tend to use powder for a lighter, more natural look. My suggestion? PIXI BEAUTY'S BROW POWDER PALETTE, which can even double as a matte eyeshadow.

    To make sure your eye makeup stays on the whole day, especially if you have oily lids like me, use an eyeshadow primer like the URBAN DECAY EYESHADOW PRIMER ANTI-AGING. And for the eyeshadow, I'm obsessed with the TOO FACED CHOCOLATE BAR, because it has such beautiful, earth-toned hues perfect for a simple yet stunning look. If you're on a budget, a perfect alternative would be PINK SUGAR'S EYE CANDY EYESHADOW SQUAD in CAFE LATTE.


    I normally stick to four shades---a matte base that I apply all over my lid, a darker matte brown for the outer V, a golden, shimmery one to dust all over my crease and create the illusion of bigger eyes, and a light, barely-there pink shimmer on the brow bone and inner corners.


    After my eyeshadow, I like using MAYBELLINE'S HYPERSHARP LINER to draw a thin wing as close to my lash line as possible. I like giving my eyeliner a small wing to, again, create the illusion of bigger eyes.


    Once I've lined my lids, I curl my lashes, take my favorite set of falsies, and use BOHKTOH'S EYELASH GLUE to stick them. Bohktoh's Eyelash Glue is by far the best one I've ever tried---during one extremely windy day where I was wearing falsies, they didn't fly away or budge at all.


    When the glue has dried and my falsies feel secure, I curl my lashes again and apply just one coat of MAYBELLINE'S LASH SENSATIONAL MASCARA. I finish it off by using the HYPERSHARP LINER again to tight-line, and make my falsies look more real and more connected to my lids.

    To amplify my contour, I use PIXI'S NATURAL CONTOUR POWDER and lightly sweep it with a tapered brush all over the same areas I contoured earlier. For my blush, I can never go wrong with MILANI'S BAKED BLUSH in BERRY AMORE. And for my lips, always my go-to is OFRA'S LONG LASTING LIQUID LIPSTICK in LAGUNA BEACH.


    The steps may be long and might sound tedious for some, but trust me---you will never fail with this kind of makeup look and I promise---it looks good on anybody!

  54. 10 Signs You're at A Millennial Wedding[et_pb_section bb_built="1" transparent_background_fb="default" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67"]

    As far as traditions go, weddings are as traditional as they come. These days however, millennial couples have re-written the wedding tradition to fit their technology-dependent and slightly ironic lifestyles. When it comes to their big day, millennial couples push boundaries, are innovative and highly creative, and put new spins on old customs. Read on to find out how millennials do it:



    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.67"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67" text_font_size="18px"]

    1. The wedding has an official hashtag.

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.67"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67"]

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67"]



    Hashtags are usually used to identify a keyword of a topic and make it easier for it to be searchable online, hence allowing the post-wedding photo compilation task to be doable. #PromDateToLifemate, OneHaleOfAWedding, #CruzSquared The list of official wedding hashtags goes on from the wittiest to the most ridiculous.



    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.67"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.67"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67" text_font_size="18px"]

    2. Pinterest-inspired props and layouts are everywhere.

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.67"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/BBC-MOODBOARD_70s-Vintage.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/brides/inspiration/mood-boards/that-70s-vibe/#.WYla51Gg_IU" url_new_window="on" animation="off" _builder_version="3.0.67" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67"]


    The internet and social media are huge parts of any true millennial's lifestyle, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that they utilize it to choose pegs for their wedding. Pinterest has a plethora of ideas for table centerpieces, wedding cakes, bridal gowns, etc. You name it, it's got it.



    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.67"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67" text_font_size="18px"]

    3. The cinematic SDE is one of the event highlights.

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.67"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_video src="https://youtu.be/Bh8-ChoRx90" _builder_version="3.0.67" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67"]

    The Same Day Edit video pretty much sums up what goes down

    at the wedding from the prep, to the pre-wedding primping, to the reception dance party-with an extra touch of dramatic flourish. Lush landscapes, slow-mo scenes, epic drone overhead shots-it's a blockbuster of a production.



    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.67"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67" text_font_size="18px"]

    4. Digital invites versus snail mail invites.

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.67"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67"]




    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67"]



    Remember when brides kept stressing out about sending dozens

    of physical invites through the post office, or getting anxiety attacks over printing and paper selection back in the day? Well, these days, some couples opt for the less stressful and more cost efficient e-vites (electronic invites) or even just a simple Facebook Event Page to let guests know the details of their big day.



    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.67"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67" text_font_size="18px"]

    5. They're into mixing up the entourage.

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.67"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67"]






    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67"]



    It is not unheard of to have a "Dog of Honor" (i.e. the bride or groom's pet pooch) walk down the aisle. Or Bridesmen, for that
    matter.



    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.67"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67" text_font_size="18px"]

    6. The bride can march to her own drum.

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.67"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_video src="https://youtu.be/4-94JhLEiN0" _builder_version="3.0.67" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67"]

    Or rather... tune. For years, Mendelssohn's "Wedding March" was strictly the song to walk down the aisle to. Not anymore. Nowadays, it could be anything from a string quartet rendition of Christina Perri's "A Thousand Years" or Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud," or any song the bride wants, really.



    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.67"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67" text_font_size="18px"]

    7. Themes are a huge thing.

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.67"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67"]

    A Star Wars wedding? A Zombie reception? A Game of Thrones feast? You name it, millennials have done it. Pop culture is a gigantic portion of a millennial's life, thus some couples opt to celebrate their wedding day in line with their favorite pop culture references.



    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.67"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67" text_font_size="18px"]

    8. The proposal is almost as flashy as the wedding itself.

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.67"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67"]




    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67"]

    Wedding proposals used to be a private moment between the bride and groom. Not anymore. Millennials love their extravagant proposals. A flash mob. A public fireworks display. A billboard announcement. All documented and uploaded on social media, of course. And for those who missed seeing how the bride-to-be said "Yes," don't worry. There will probably be a

    video of all the highlights from the day of the proposal during the wedding reception.



    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.67"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67" text_font_size="18px"]

    9. The bridal dress can be anything the bride wants it to be.

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.67"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67"]






    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67"]

    Sometimes, it doesn't even have to be a dress at all. Millennial brides have walked down the aisle in pantsuits. Some millennial

    brides also opt to ditch the usual white frocks and go for grey, pink, red or whatever color they fancy. Which is great because sometimes long gowns with even longer trains are not the easiest things to walk around in.



    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.67"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67" text_font_size="18px"]

    10. Adding a twist to the dress code.

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.67"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67"]

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.67"]

    There is still usually a color motif, but millennial couples sometimes allow their guests to show up in something they're actually comfortable in, like pairing long gowns or tuxedos with sneakers. Some more, err, demanding couples require guests to come in costume in line with the wedding theme. All in good fun, of course!

    Our gorgeous #CalyxtaGirl, Maureen Wroblewitz, ends the month by channeling this prim and pretty look that highlights a softer and more feminine side of her. Keep reading and find out how you can get this Betty Cooper x Veronica Lodge-inspired ensemble---you might even want to pull it off for Halloween!

    1. Start off with a matte primer to get this fresh finish all day long. You can try the INGLOT MATTIFYING UNDER MAKEUP BASE, P1,295, which works well for any skin type.

    2. For a full coverage, water-resistant foundation that effectively combats under eye circles, redness, and other skin imperfections, a must-try is the MILANI CONCEAL + PERFECT 2-IN-1 FOUNDATION + CONCEALER, P600. You can opt to skip out on your usual concealer if you’re going for this foundation.

    3. Set your foundation with the MILANI PREP + SET + GO TRANSPARENT FACE POWDER, P550, to make sure it doesn’t melt or move throughout the day. Plus, this complexion-smoothing primer blurs the appearance of pores and fine lines. It comes in one universal shade that is perfect for all skin tones and skin types!

    4. Work that contour and try the L’OREAL PARIS INFALLIBL PRO CONTOUR PALETTE, P600, to enhance and define your features. The powders of this palette are buildable and has a fade-proof finish to keep your features looking on point the whole day.

    5. Janina Dizon, Mau’s makeup artist, applied some highlights for a youthful glow. Try the COLOURPOP PRESSED POWDER HIGHLIGHTER, P630, which is a highly-reflective highlighter that leaves your skin with a radiant glow.

  58. Think Pink: Let's Talk About Breast Cancer Awareness[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Pink is more than just a pretty color. These days, it's also become associated with the very important issue of Breast Cancer Awareness. Breast cancer is the second most common type of cancer amongst women. The good news is---it is highly treatable if discovered during its early stages. A mammogram is the screening test done to determine the presence of this type of cancer. Unfortunately, most women do not regularly get checked and are unaware of the symptoms that indicate breast cancer, hence the illness is commonly undetected until the later and more dangerous stages.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/BCAM.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/%20" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.77" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Awareness is key to saving lives, and this is why October is celebrated as Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM), a massive international campaign launched by breast cancer organizations around the globe that raises awareness for this disease. The Pink Ribbon is the international symbol of breast cancer awareness and using pink (and pink products!) this month highlights ones support for this movement.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Part of the agenda during Breast Cancer Awareness Month is raising funds to further increase awareness for campaigns and contribute to research on treatment and prevention of this illness. This is also one major cause that is close to the beauty industry's heart, as both big and niche brands alike rally together to support the campaign against breast cancer.


    Evelyn Lauder, daughter-in-law of Estee Lauder, together with her good friend, Alexandra Penney, former Editor-in-Chief of SELF Magazine, created the Breast Cancer Awareness campaign in 1992, and were the minds behind the significant pink ribbon highly associated with it. It was a campaign that started small, with Evelyn and her husband largely financing the little bows given to women at department store makeup counters to remind them about breast examinations.


    Major brands like Clinique, L'Oreal, and Calvin Klein, among others, have also shown their support through the years by incorporating the Pink Ribbon in their products, coming up with special "pink" products, and donating proceeds to breast cancer-related foundations.

    Calyxta strongly supports the brave women who battle breast cancer and have overcome it. Something as simple as wearing pink to support this cause can make a massive difference!

  59. Ingredients 101: AHA & BHA[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Any skincare devotee would know that in the quest for youthful, luminous skin, exfoliation is key. And while physically scrubbing our skin with granules and rough cloths can be immensely satisfying, there is a better and gentler option out there. You want a hint? Here it goes: Two ingredients, three letters per ingredient.

    I'm talking about AHA's and BHA's, of course! If you've been paying attention to beauty forums lately, you may have come across these ingredients at some point. If you've always wondered what they are exactly and what superpowers they possess, here's the lowdown on these two:

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"] What are they? [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    These two aren't your average 3-letter combos. And no, they aren't fancy vitamins either. AHA's and BHA's are liquid exfoliators---the good kind of acids that dissolve the layer of debris on our skin thus allowing fresh, healthy skin to come through. Among the most popular AHA's are some familiar names such as glycolic, lactic, and citric acid. On the BHA front, we have salicylic, butyric, and benzoic acid.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/hy-four-types-of-hydroxy-acids.x40925.png" _builder_version="3.0.77" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    What do they do?


    As we age, our skin shedding process slows down, and our skin may need a bit more assistance in getting rid of surface debris. These good acids aid in the removal of all those bad stuff that cause dull, flaky skin like dead skin cells, leftover makeup gunk clogging pores, pollution, and dirt.


    What's the main difference between AHA's and BHA's?


    AHA's are water soluble and does its magic on the skin surface. It's great for treating sun damaged, lackluster skin, and effectively hydrates and moisturizes. BHA's are oil soluble and go a bit more beyond the surface, way down to inside the pore. It targets and deep cleanses blackheads, blemishes, and enlarged pores. AHA's work best on normal to dry skin, while BHA's work better with oily and sensitive skin.


    What are their similarities?


    Both gentle acids are fantastic exfoliators. They help diminish fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin hydration, make skin less dull, and give the appearance and feel of firmer skin.

    Where can I get AHA's & BHA's?

  60. Real Bride: Ghia Vicente-Giron[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47" custom_padding="47.1797px|0px|47px|0px"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77" inline_fonts="Dancing Script"]

    What’s the inspiration behind your wedding look? Did you have any hair and makeup pegs?


    I wanted a dewy, glowing look. Pinterest was my go-to app for all wedding-related pegs!


    Who designed your wedding gown, and how did you come up with the style? How long did it take to create or find the perfect wedding dress?


    Rosenthal Tee designed my gown and it took her around six months to finish everything. I actually went to two other designers before I met Chantal. It’s perfect since her design aesthetic was same as mine---romantic with a little bit of edge!


    How did you choose your hair and makeup artist?


    Anjie Gogna, my makeup artist brought her own hair stylist with her. Anjie was referred by a good friend of mine.


    What lip color did you choose for the wedding day?


    Nude! I wanted my eyes to be the focal point of my face.


    [/et_pb_text][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Ghia-Vicente3.x40925.jpg" _builder_version="3.0.77" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Ghia-Vicente2.2.x40925.jpg" _builder_version="3.0.77" /][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77" inline_fonts="Dancing Script"]

    What was in your wedding day makeup kit/pouch?


    Perfume and candy.


    What were the preparations you did for your skin prior to the wedding day? Did you go to a skincare center regularly? What kind of services did you have done? Is this something you would recommend to other brides-to-be?


    Three months before my wedding, I went to this skin clinic in West Triangle called IAAS or International Academy for Aesthetic Sciences to schedule my bi-monthly facials, as well as three different IV DRIPS (Myers Cocktail, Glutathione, and Collagen). I wanted to make sure that I had that “bridal glow” since it doesn’t really happen without any effort! I highly suggest for all the brides-to-be to do the same as all the planning and stress can really take a toll on your skin.


    What was the best beauty advice you received that helped you prepare for your wedding?

    How about in terms of fitness? What did you do months before the wedding to stay in shape and make sure your wedding dress fit perfectly? Did you enroll in a gym or fitness center? What was your diet like?


    I wasn’t really as conscious with what I ate because a few months before the wedding, I started attending HIIT in Elorde Katipunan for around two to three times a week.


    Did you have your nails done? If so, where? Would you recommend this nail salon to others?


    I had my nails done in I DO Nails in Eastwood. Their service is terrific!


    What was your biggest takeaway from your wedding day? Do you have any beauty-related tips you’d like to share to upcoming brides?


    Biggest takeaway would be to savour every single second of your wedding because the day will just go by so fast! And don’t forget to eat! You wouldn’t be able to last until the end of your wedding night if you skip any meal, trust me.

     "KULAY-doscope," a unique collection of hats by architect, interior designer, and costume maker, Carmina de Dios, officially launched its collaboration with Idée Clothing Store last October 4, 2017. The stunning collection where Philippine design fuses seamlessly with New York craftsmanship features panama straw and velour felt hats, all of which embody unique characters.


    [/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    It was such a sight to see everyone trying on the stunning hats from the collection as Carmina de Dios herself warmly entertained each and every guest with a free hat fitting and consultation.

    Calyxta Conversations with Rica Lorenzo

    When did Idee start? And what was your inspiration behind it?

    Okay, so it started two years ago, actually on the 17th of October. Exactly two years ago. And it was just a spur of the moment decision to open the store. Simply because this space became available. My family owns this building, and one day, my brother just said, "Rica, are you interested in this space?" and I've actually been toying with the idea of a store. Only because I wanted some kind of hobby because my job really is to take care of the family's fruit business---bananas and pineapples. So, I said, "Okay, maybe I'll put the store." My office is just across the corridor, and the idea of a store across and in the same building as me, where I would never
    have to go to the malls, because I don't really like the malls---so I said, "Okay, fine!" and that was two years ago.


    In the beginning it was Idee, and it still is called Idee. But our styles have evolved from black knits, to very colorful knits, to a lot of woven pieces, and then we also have men's items and bags---bags by various people, not just our own. We have bags by Maimai Cojuangco, which are Italian-made. Also, we have other Italian bags that we are going to be launching very soon. We have semi-precious stone necklaces, and we have, clearly, the hats. So, we've really expanded beyond simply clothes. And now, the clothes that
    are currently hanging on the racks are not "Idee" per se, they're called "I.D. by Idee."


    This is a diffusion line that we launched some months ago for a younger set of people. We've had two or three collections of I.D. come in since then and once we've completed this, maybe by early next year, we will go back to Idee---the mother brand. And I'm excited because the mother brand, the next collection like the 6th that we're going to have under Idee, would be now finally designed by me. There'd be cotton, linen, and denim, which are the three fabrics I like best. So, there you go! I'm very, very excited about this whole thing.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    What does Idee mean? Where did the name come from?

    Idee in French and Italian, depending on how it's pronounced, is ideas. That's all it is. In Italian it's, "Ee-dey-yeh" and in French it's, "Ee-deh." So, it's a little tricky. Most people pronounce it as "Ay-dee," but it doesn't matter. Just as long as they come, you know, it doesn't really matter how they pronounce the name of the store.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/4.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.instagram.com/ideeclothingstore/" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.77" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    How did you conceptualize it? What was your design inspiration behind it when you were starting?


    Keep it simple. Because when we had this space, I wanted just metal---because I didn't want to complicate it. I didn't want it to be anything which in the end would compete with the clothes. So the clothes themselves had to be the ones to stand out. It's really all about the clothes. And then in the middle, we have for the accessories. While it seems so structured in a way, there' so much versatility because there's nothing that stops us from putting whichever. Just like before, there was a time we had scarves. We didn't have anything on our racks except for scarves hanging, not on hangers, but tied. There was a lot of flexibility. Our display window is so easy to fix.


    How about curating the brands, what's your process? Or how do you curate or discover brands that you'd like to have available?


    Wala lang! What I like---that's my main guiding principle. If I like it, I'll consider carrying it in the score. So, we've tried CJ Cruz, Sophie
    Borromeo, we've had Bea Valdez several times. For Bea, it was not just her clothes. We also have her broches, some bags. Oh, Victoria Yabut---our current one. We have her bags, also her pouches. It's so fluid and improvisational. We're going to do Linea Ethnica, because I like some of the weaves. But we're doing it with denim, because I like denim. I'd rather use denim than knits, which is the usual combination that she uses. So this time I'm putting it on denim. Maybe we'll have some real designers---I don't mean real, as if the others are not. But I'm talking about the older ones; more established like Inno Sotto, Pepito Albert, etc. We're going to have racks by them, too.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    How did you meet Carmina?

    Completely by---well, not really by chance. Her older sister, Mitzi, is a friend of my younger sister, Isa, through Silverlens Gallery here. I was in Florence then. Mitzi and Carmina were going to be in Florence as well, and so, Isa texted me. She goes, "Listen, my friend's coming. Can you take them out one day?" So, that's it! And then when Carmina was saying that she was staying in New York where she works for this and that, she mentioned, "also make hats." And I said, "Hats!" ---that's one thing I've not thought of. So I told her then and there if she can make hats when she comes home.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/5.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.instagram.com/carminadedios/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.77" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    What do you like most about the current collection of the hats?

    Everything! I didn't collaborate on the design, but Carmina shared the styles with me from the get-go. I knew what they were going to look like and she cleared it with me, "Are these styles okay?", because she had several and I narrowed it down. I was part of the selection process. When it came to the actual colors, she also mentioned what colors and asked me what I thought of them. Naturally, there's a little bit of me and a lot of her. But at least, like a part of that same basic principle, if I like it, the store will have it. If I don't like it, it's not going to be in the store.


    Okay, last question. Do you have any collaborations or plans for future collections?


    Well, very soon. We have Tinka Winka, a very young, new brand with denim jackets that are all embroidered. We're going to do that. And then, Linea Ethnica, but this time in denim. Then, with Bea Valdez, we're going to have a new line with new stuff. Maimai Cojuangco will do a second round of her bags. We'll also have another bag collection from Florence called, Scuola del Cuoio, which we're also launching some time in November. So, those are all sunod sunod, whichever comes first. While we have to constantly offer something new, we can't offer it all the time because people will get sawa because it's also the same people naman that we invite to the launches. We do have a growing database and mailing list, except that basically we can't keep inviting every week.

    Calyxta Conversations with Carmina de Dios


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/6.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.instagram.com/carminadedios/" url_new_window="on" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.77" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Can you tell us a little bit more of your design process?


    My design process is very organic. It evolves and it's very visual. Just like today, this event started at 3? But until 1 o'clock, I was still shaping as I was setting up the space. I was still designing as I decided on which hats should go together. So, yes, it's very visual. I start with a concept first and I get a lot of inspiration from nature. And then, from there, it just evolves. And I always, always, always like to highlight our individuality---


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    how each person is different. So, when I design, I'll make five styles or three styles, which have to be complementary but different at the same time. I want to be able to design for a tall person, a petite person, a very casual or rugged person, So, it's always, always like that. And then from there, I edit, I add.


    Is there a certain style that you're drawn towards to?


    I like distressed. Have you heard of wabi sabi? It's a Japanese term. I don't know exactly, but the concept is you just let something age, and allow it to get its own character. It's the acceptance of imperfection. I like that. Just let things age.


    When creating your hats, are you more of a morning person or a night owl?


    Night owl! Oh, yeah. I work when it's very quiet, and I'm the only one awake.


    In terms of this collection, since it's a collaboration, how did you guys work together in coming up with these specific designs?


    It's such a pleasure working with Rica. She's very specific in terms of what she wants---the quantity, the general direction. But she gave me the freedom to design whatever I want and after she'd be like, "Oh, okay. Maybe we won't do it this way, let's do it some other way." But, she started with, "What do you want?" and she allowed me to express myself.


    Not everyone really knows how to wear a hat, and I think it's more of that than not really wanting to wear one...


    Yeah! It's intimidating.


    So, how do you work around it? How do you convince people to try it out?


    It's really just all about proportion. In confidence, you will learn it. It took me about a year to really feel comfortable wearing hats. You just need to know what goes well with your face and that's practice. You just keep on trying, just keep wearing, and little by little you'll get used to it. Maybe wear it going to the deli? Just wear it during short trips, and eventually, you'll get used to it. Plus, it protects our skin from the sun!


    [/et_pb_text][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/CAYO6551.x40925.jpg" _builder_version="3.0.77" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    How do you care for the hats?

    Well, if you're able to have a hat stand, then, I would store it that way. Or in a hat box. And normally, you rest it on its crown, so you don't harm the brim. Especially for something sculptural. Don't forget to dust your hats with a soft-bristled brush every once in a while.


    Last question---do you have any future, upcoming collections?


    Yeah, Rica and I are talking about doing the next one! So, yeah, we'll see.


    Check out the exclusive collection over at Idee Clothing Store---located at the ground floor of Lapanday Center, Pasong Tamo Extension, Makati City.

    The House of Guess recently revealed the big and exciting comeback of Guess Fragrances after two years of being away from the shelves. In partnership with Rustan's the Beauty Source, they introduced their newest fragrance, GUESS 1981, in a nostalgic '90s-style, house party-inspired launch!


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/7-1.x40925.jpg" _builder_version="3.0.77" align="center" module_alignment="center"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/1-1.x40925.jpg" _builder_version="3.0.77" align="center"][/et_pb_image][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    GUESS 1981 is their newest fragrance for the modern, confident, and young woman. It's inspired by the very heritage and essence of the brand, which symbolizes the young, sexy, and free-spirited lifestyle. Perfumer, Stephen Nilsen, shares, "I wanted to create a fragrance with a contrast of layers and textures, like a woman who has many facets, expressing her inner strength yet also possessing an alluring, feminine softness."


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Sounds like the perfect fragrance for you? In case you're wondering how it smells like, the scent opens with a powdery violet and woody ambrette, which later transforms into tantalizing jasmine petals, sweet juicy pear, and sandalwood heart.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Guests were free to hang out and lounge around the House of Guess while picking out their favorite scents from the fragrance line. Together with fun, throwback music playing in the background, everyone ate to their heart's content as delicious snacks and cocktails were served one after the other. They even served gigantic cotton candies for all of us to enjoy!


    Guess Fragrances are now exclusively distributed by Rustan Marketing Corporation! For more information, check out their Instagram @rustanmarketingcorp.

  63. Keeping Up With Huda Kattan[et_pb_section fb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    She came, she saw, she contoured! Huda Kattan is one of the most influential beauty gurus in the world today, making her mark both online and in the international beauty market. The 32-year-old Middle Eastern beauty and co-founder of Huda Beauty (along with her siblings, Mona and Alya), has a multimillion-dollar beauty empire, a gazillion followers on YouTube and Instagram, and a huge celebrity following, which includes our favorite makeup mavens: The Kardashians. She has been breaking barriers as a powerful Middle Eastern woman in an otherwise male-dominated culture.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77" custom_margin="15px|||"]

    She is very proud of her heritage, but also fought against its oppressiveness towards women. For one thing, she is Muslim but has foregone the use of the burka. Her company's headquarters is also located in Dubai, and she's a staunch supporter of Middle Eastern Beauty. Her brand however, is not exclusively suited for Middle Eastern women, but caters to all races and faces.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Huda-Kattan.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/product-brands/huda-beauty/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.77"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Huda-Beauty-Classic-Lash-Giselle-1-1.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/accessories/huda-beauty-classic-lash-giselle-1/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.77" align="center"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Huda Beauty first broke into the beauty scene with a line of false eyelashes. These Huda Beauty Classic Lashes (P1,380.00) drew intense attention once worn by Kim Kardashian herself. The idea to create falsies came about when Kattan realized there was a void in the beauty industry for high-quality false lashes after she herself couldn't find ideal falsies to use. The Huda Beauty lashes offer a wide array of falsies of various lengths and thickness that are suitable for all eye shapes. The lashes are 100% cruelty-free and made from synthetic mellow fibers and a cotton band.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    After the Huda falsies phenomenon became a hit internationally, the brand expanded to other makeup products, including eyeshadow palettes, stick on nails, and the extremely popular Lip Contour and Lip Matte lippies. The Lip Contours (P1,650.00) are lip pencils that are ideal for thin lips, wide mouths, and unevenly shaped lips. They balance and beautify lips of all shapes by contouring and filling them with color. The Liquid Mattes (P1,850.00) are liquid lipsticks with a matte finish that help maintain lip hydration, which is fairly uncommon for matte lipsticks. It's kiss-proof and has amazing staying power.

  64.

    If you’re not one to go for big, flashy, and playful themes, this gorgeously muted palette will surely fit your aesthetic taste. Keep it simple with your makeup look by sticking to browns and earth tones so as to let your natural beauty shine through. Nothing says elegance and sophistication better than nudes and neutrals---plus, you’ll certainly be the highlight of your big day as you strut down that aisle…in style!

  65. Hair Pampering Sessions You Can Do at Home[et_pb_section fb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Wouldn't it be lovely to spend a whole day at the salon after a whole week at work? Most women who don't like getting naked for a full body massage find that a hair spa can do wonders. You keep your clothes on and yet you get a really relaxing massage. Plus, with a cloud of soft, shiny hair billowing around your stress-free face, you look amazing afterwards!


    Unfortunately, with the traffic, the trip alone to the salon can double the stress. So lots of women (like me!) have taken to DIY treatments. I do my own nails, my own facials, my own body scrubs, and even my own hair treatments! Let me share with you the products I use to pamper my tresses.

    I always start off with a thorough shampoo to wash off the dirt, sweat, oil, and hair product build up. I use my kids' baby shampoo because it really cleans but it's gentle on my fine hair.

    I towel dry my hair gently then massage about a tablespoon or two of oil onto my entire scalp. A massage encourages blood circulation, which means healthier roots. You can use any kind of oil---coconut, argan, extra virgin olive, or jojoba. I use argan oil.

    After that lovely scalp massage, I have to shampoo again to wash out all the oil. Note that thicker oil will need maybe two washes. I also like to use shampoo that promises moisture because my fine strands get brittle in the heat of the climate and then the cold of air-conditioned cars and offices. Moisturized hair stand up to the temperature differences better.

    On Hair Pamper Day, I let my hair rest from heat styling. I just let it air dry while I watch shows on Netflix but I do make sure to smooth on a few drops of beauty oil on the ends of my locks to prevent them from splitting. You can use a leave-on conditioner or a hair cream for more nourished hair. After all, hair pampering happens only once a week so indulge your hair with all the nutrients it needs!

  66. 5 Simple Ways to Avoid Acne Breakouts[et_pb_section fb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77" text_font_size="18px"]

    1. Keep your face clean.

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77" custom_padding="16.75px|0px|16px|0px"][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Keep-your-face-clean..x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/product-category/skin/face/facial-scrub/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.77" align="center"][/et_pb_image][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    If you're prone to acne, try a gentle facial cleanser with salicylic acid, which is a gentle exfoliant and also helps calm down inflammation. We suggest the St. Ives Gel Cleanser Blemish Control Green Tea, P242, for its tough stance on dirt and oil yet gentle treatment of irritated skin.

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Whatever your skin type, whether you love makeup or not, and whether you get dirty and sweaty daily or stay indoors, washing your face twice a day is a must. You need to wash off the sweat, dirt, oil, and dead skin cells so that your skin can breathe, pores won't get clogged, and bacteria won't irritate skin.

    2. Moisturize your face---even oily types!

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Moisturize-your-face-even-oily-types.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/product-category/skin/face/moisturizer-face/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.77" align="center"][/et_pb_image][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Try SIMPLE'S KIND-TO-SKIN HYDRATING LIGHT MOISTURIZER, P500, which not only nourishes skin but also won't leave it feeling greasy, thanks to its lightweight formulation.

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Many of those who suffer from oily skin think that they don't need moisturizer because they already live with an oil spill on their face. What they don't realize is even oily skin can dry out---the top layer dries and tightens, and oil may build up underneath this top layer or the oil may dry up as flakes on the skin!


    Look for moisturizers specifically created for oily or acne-prone skin. These usually have active ingredients that can heal acne, sooth inflammation, or are water-based.

    3. Kill bacteria.

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Kill-bacteria.-1.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/product-category/skin/face/treatment-face/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.77" align="center"][/et_pb_image][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    For this, we recommend the VMV ID MONOLAURIN GEL, P875, which is an antibacterial, antiviral, anti-yeast, and anti-protozoal treatment. Bonus feature: It acts as a mattifier so skin looks shine-free!

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Pimples are caused when oil and bacteria get trapped in the pores. Bacteria gets attacked by the immune system, resulting to pus and inflammation. To prevent this from happening, keep skin clean and kill bacteria.

    [/et_pb_text][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/VMV-Id-Monolaurin-Gel-120mL-4806502775776-LRG.x40925.png?x69427" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/skin/vmv-id-monolaurin-gel/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.77" align="center"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77" text_font_size="18px"]

    4. Don't pick at your zits!

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Dont-pick-at-your-zits.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/product-category/skin/face/treatment-face/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.77" align="center"][/et_pb_image][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    If a skin doctor is out of the question, try the cult-favorite (because it's super effective!) COSRX ACNE PIMPLE MASTER PATCH, P200, for a set of 24 patches. Each patch kills bacteria, draws out pus, reduces swelling, and prevents the pimple from getting worse.

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    It's tempting to pop a pimple but you risk more infection and scarring that way. Be patient. Your body will treat that pimple in its own way, so leave it alone. You can speed things up by going to a dermatologist who will either drain the pimple or inject cortisone into it or both.

    Oil control is a priority of those who have acne-prone skin. Less oil means less pimples. Unfortunately, stripping skin of its natural oils (with frequent washing, scrubbing, using harsh cleansers and alcohol-based toners) triggers the skin to produce more oil!
    What you need to do is to absorb the excess oil. Blotting sheets are great to use throughout the day. There are also pressed powders that do the same thing.


    Clay masks are amazing at absorbing oil and sucking out oil and dirt from pores. We love INNISFREE SUPER VOLCANIC PORE CLAY MASK, P800, and INNISFREE NO SEBUM BLUR POWDER, P485. Both are amazing at controlling oil

  67. Totally Nifty 1950s Looks to Rock This Halloween[et_pb_section fb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    The 1950s was a glorious decade---the dawn of a new era of glamour and innovation in the world of beauty. Most of the mainstay skin care and makeupbrands we still have on our shelves first emerged in the 50s, and through the years have established themselves as the pillars of the beauty industry. Technicolor had just hit the big screen, and women everywhere were drawing beauty inspiration from multicolored faces of their favorite film and TV characters. Not only that, but a lot of now brilliant cartoons and comics were being made, and the characters from these would soon be the icons we all know decades after. With Halloween just around the corner, wouldn't it be loads of fun to dress up as one of your favorite 1950s glam icons?


    Here are a few ideas to help you figure out how to emerge like your favorite character straight out of the 50s that's guaranteed to be a hit at your Halloween bash:

    Though this movie clearly came out in the 70s, the musical antics of the T-birds and Pink Ladies at Rydell High were actually set in the 50s as lead star, John Travolta, confirmed in an interview. And who could forget the newly transformed 'bad girl' Sandy in her tight, all-leather ensemble, complete with red lipstick, fab curls and hoop earrings?

    The sexy 1950s showgirl portrayed by Marilyn Monroe in that stunning pink dress and diamonds is one of the most recognizable looks from the 50s.

    As far as icons go, Audrey Hepburn's Holly Golightly, the glamorous New York society girl tops the list of that decade.

    Before Blair Waldorf and Serena Van Der Woodsen were brought to life in the Gossip Girl books and TV show, Betty and Veronica were already long playing frenemies in Riverdale since the 50s. As much as we love good girl Betty, Veronica the vixen is always a bit more fun to dress up as, especially on Halloween.

    Possibly the most decade-defining character in 1950s television was Lucille Ball's hilarious redhead character, Lucy Ricardo, in the classic sitcom, 'I Love Lucy'. Get those curlers on and pucker up those glossy red lips, because dressing up as the beloved Lucy is sure to be a ball!

    It has been over a decade since Butter London launched the first-ever "3-free" nail lacquer. What does "3-free" stand for exactly? It means that the nail lacquers are free from three of the most damaging and toxic ingredients commonly found in cheaper and generic nail polish. These ingredients are DBP or Dibutyl Phthalate, Formaldehyde, and Toluene.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/nails.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/product-category/nail-care/nail-polish/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.77" max_width="83%" module_alignment="center"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77" custom_margin="10px|||"]

    DBP is essentially what makes nail polish smooth and easy to apply but its side effects can be devastating---birth defects, and sometimes, miscarriages. Formaldehyde is a preservative that, based on several studies, has links to cancer. Lastly, there's Toluene which is a solvent that allows the lacquer to adhere better onto the nail bed but when inhaled, can wreak havoc on one's central nervous system.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Brands that have made good on their promise to provide better and safer formulations for their lacquers are OPI, Orly, Ciaté, Inglot, Deborah Lippmann, Essie, NARS and Estée Lauder. Local brand, Girl Stuff, and its sister brand, Solique, whose polishes are made in France, and have actually taken the safe route to an even higher level with their "5-free" polish is a favorite of mine these days. "5-free" essentially means that aside from the 3 harmful ingredients I talked about earlier, the formulation is also free from Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor. Other brands that are proudly "5-free" are Chanel, Dashing Diva, Dior and Zoya.


    So remember, when you're in between polish breaks, and are contemplating on which brands to wear on your tips, consider using these-they'll care for your nails in the best way possible.

    With his contagious, happy energy that makes him so easy and enjoyable to work with, there's no one like MJ Rone to brighten up the whole set and make everyone feel at ease. He'd randomly fire jokes one after the other whenever the energy in the room seems to be running low---just to keep everyone in good spirits!


    He has been working closely with our October #CalyxtaGirl and Asia's Next Top Model Cycle 5 Winner, Maureen Wroblewitz, for a couple of her big shoots, and other young celebrities like Kisses de Lavin, Maymay Entrata, and Maris Racal. MJ has also done various beauty editorials for some of the biggest names in media such as Metro Magazine, L'Officiel, and FHM Magazine to name a few. Get to know him more by reading up on our quick chat with this talented hairstylist!

    1. How did it all start for you? When did it all start?

    I was working in the corporate world back in 2013 when I met my partner who is also a hair and makeup artist. I'd be his assistant whenever he had a gig until he introduced me to his professional HMUA friends---and that's how I became part of this industry. I was exposed to doing hair and makeup for weddings, fashion week, and pageants. We were introduced to Cynos Inside Hair Care and Revlon Professional Brands Philippines, so I decided to concentrate more on hairstyling.


    2. How long have you been doing hair?


    I've been professionally styling hair for around three to four years now.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_3"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Mj-ROne4.x40925.jpg" _builder_version="3.0.77" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    3. What do you love most about your job?

    I used to work in an office before, which made me realize that it isn't really for me. Like answering e-mails, talking to clients over the phone---where you can't really see their reactions whether they're actually satisfied with my service or not. I love talking to people, and I guess that's why I love my job as a hairstylist. It allows me to talk to different types of people with different styles and personalities. It allows me to become more versatile with the hairstyles that I create to suit each and every one of my clients. I love seeing their reactions whether they love my work or not. It challenges me to give the style that they want without sacrificing my work. Like sometimes I have something in mind that looks better than what they want, so I will try to combine their pegs with mine.


    4. What would you say is your signature hair look?

    I'm a braid master. I love hairstyles with touches of braids or just loose braids.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    5. Is this the career you've always wanted to pursue?


    Not really. Hehe. I really wanted to be a restaurant owner or a singer.


    6. Name three of your biggest projects so far?

    I've done a couple of endorsements with our Asia's Next Top Model Winner, Maureen Wroblewitz. I did her hair for Forme Clothing and ASUS. I also did the October issue cover for FHM magazine, as well as beauty editorials for L'Officiel, Metro Magazine, Metro Weddings, Spotted Magazine, and Scout Magazine. I've also styled Maymay Entrata, Kisses de Lavin, and Maris Racal.

    7. What is the best advice that you've received about hairstyling?


    The best advice is, "Always start off with a nice blow dry before moving on to styling hair."


    8. Other than hairstyling, what are your other interests/hobbies?

    I'm currently a member of a choir. Whenever I have spare time, I see to it that I can practice and sing my heart out to God every Sunday. I also love watching hair tutorials on YouTube.

  70. Maureen Wroblewitz: Pin-Up Chic[et_pb_section fb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row custom_padding="23.5938px|0px|0px|0px" _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/DSC0907.x40925.jpg" _builder_version="3.0.77"][/et_pb_image][et_pb_image _builder_version="3.0.77"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    By definition, pin-ups are usually posters of glamourous women designed to be displayed on the wall. In the 1950s, models and actresses like Brigitte Bardot, Dorothy Dandridge, Gina Lollobrigida, and of course, Marilyn Monroe, were just some of the most iconic “pin-up girls” who embodied vintage beauty---which is why we dedicated this week’s look in capturing just that.


    With her timeless beauty, Maureen Wroblewitz is no doubt a modern day pin-up---posing for photos worthy of being framed and hung. Seeing all her layouts made me want to post everything on my Instagram, and maybe choose one or two to use as my desktop wallpaper. In fact, just recently, her hairstylist, MJ Rone, showed me his phone---and it was a wallpaper of Maureen in her Rockabilly ensemble!


    In this week’s cover story, Mau, as she’s fondly called in person, gives us a more detailed account of her journey during Asia’s Next Top Model---what she loves most about modeling, her takeaways from the experience, and how she dealt with the bullies during the show.


    [/et_pb_text][et_pb_image _builder_version="3.0.77"][/et_pb_image][et_pb_image _builder_version="3.0.77"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Does modelling run in your family? Or are you the first one?


    My mom joined this pageant thing. She’s from Rosales, Pangasinan and she joined a pageant. But it’s pageant, not modelling. So, yeah. I was the first one. There’s never been a model. I’m the first.


    Did you watch previous cycles of Asia’s Next Top Model prior to joining?


    No---just a few episodes. I didn’t watch it really before.


    In one word, how would you describe your Asia’s Next Top Model journey? And why?


    Crazy. There were a lot of ups and downs. And then there was bullying, and feeling insecure, and feeling like giving up, and then there’s a lot of pressure. Then also happy moments because I found good friends there, but it was a really crazy journey.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/DSC0969-1.x40925.jpg" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.77"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    What was the biggest lesson you were able to take home after that?


    It was really about myself. Because I never believed that---I was always telling people that, “Oh, anything’s possible. You just have to go and try.” But I never really believed it. Until I did something---I took a risk. I don’t really take risks. I’m that careful type of person. And so, I learned that it is possible. It is true that anything is possible, and I just realized that I’m a strong person and I never really saw it, but other people saw it, and so that’s how I know it now.

    What about modelling do you love the most?


    I love meeting new people. It’s like creating art. And I love seeing the pictures after. It’s like you can be proud of them and be like, “Oh yeah, that’s me!” Especially when you’re in a magazine, it’s so exciting.


    Do you still keep in touch with the friends you made from Asia’s Next Top Model?


    Yes. The twins, I got close to them. They were here in the Philippines just---last week?


    Oh, that’s so cool! Did you get to take them around?


    Oh, I couldn’t really because it was a sponsored thing. But we hung out and I will most probably go to Indonesia to visit them.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_3" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/DSC0971.x40925.jpg" align="center" _builder_version="3.0.77" max_width="90%"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    What about those who weren’t as kind to you? What’s your relationship like with them now?


    We’re cool. We follow each other on Instagram and we like each other’s posts. But we don’t really talk as much


    What’s one thing people don’t know about you yet? Or what do you think wasn’t shown on television, that they see on photos? Is it the artsy side?


    I don’t know if they see the artsy side. I don’t know if they know the artsy side. They know I don’t have a dancing talent, because there was an episode that I had to dance and I was so bad. But if there’s something they don’t know---I get that question a lot, and then I’d have to think of something new. But a lot of people, I don’t know if they read all my articles, but I work. I didn’t have it easy. I worked as a waitress before, and I earned my own money. I was starting to be independent when I was 16. People don’t know that. People think that because I’m half-German and I look this way, that I’m maarte. Like with food---I actually eat everything. Except for spicy. And I eat balut. Some Filipinos don’t even eat that. And then, I forgot the name, but it’s like---blood?


    Oh, dinuguan?


    Yes! I eat that also.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    If you were to give your pre-Asia’s Next Top Model self any advice, what would it be?


    Take risks and don’t be afraid. You have to take risks, so you’ll grow more as a person. Get out of your comfort zone. You can’t just stay this tiny for the longest time because you only have one life to live, and you don’t know for how long. So you have to use every second, and make it worth it.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77" custom_margin="20px|||"]

    What about bullying---what advice can you give young girls who are being bullied?


    I can say that they should really just focus. That’s what I did. I would focus on myself and just think that. I’m very open-minded. Before I judge people, or before I’m like, “Oh my god, this person is this or that,” I think about them---why do they do it? They have a reason why they do it. Maybe they’re going through things, and the only way to get out of it is to bring other people down. There are people like that, and I just maybe try to understand them. Just focus on yourself, focus on the people you love and who love you, and don’t let the bullies get to you. When you don’t let them get to you, it will stop. They’ll just stop. So, yeah. Just show them that you’re strong, and that you don’t care. Even if it’s hard. Because it can be so hard. Just prove them wrong.

  71. Made in Magenta[et_pb_section fb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Looking as timeless as ever, Maureen flaunts yet another classic look from the 1950s. This week’s look is in collaboration with New York-based hat designer, Carmina de Dios, as our Calyxta Girl wears this stunning headpiece to complement her bold plum lips.


    Get this week’s look by following these steps:


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77" custom_padding="16.75px|0px|0px|0px"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    1. Start your look by applying a primer that suits your skin type.

  74. Beauty Haven: Calyxta Products Agoo Bengzon Swears By[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47" custom_padding="33.5px|0px|33px|0px"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="2_3"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    I guess you can say I became a "beauty girl" fairly early in my life. At age 6, I was already invading my mom's makeup stash, and in high school, I was obsessed with lipsticks. When it came to college, I had already invested in my very first eye cream---and girls, that was the early 90s!


    Fast forward to today, a couple of years after holding the Beauty Editor position at Preview magazine for 12 years, I'm still obsessed with beauty products. Actually, even more so now.


    The opportunity to work with Calyxta was heaven-sent because I get to share trends and tips with readers, and also discover old and new brands that have now become staples in my makeup kit. Calyxta is truly a treasure trove when it comes to beauty essentials, and these are the ones I love the most, which hopefully, will find a place in your makeup kits too!

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77" custom_margin="20px|||"]

    I discovered this many years ago, thanks to makeup artist extraordinaire, Jigs Mayuga. The light brown shade is amazing—it can be used by anyone, and it somehow always looks like the perfect shade for that person! I also like that it doesn't go on too strong or waxy so it looks really natural even under unforgiving light.

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77" custom_margin="27px|||"]

    I love this---and anything from Glossier! I was never a fan of cream or gel types of blush but this one just blends in like a dream. Beam is a universally flattering shade because it's a peachy hue that looks good on both mestizas and morenas.

    A lot of the concealers I used in the past were really pricey. I'm glad I found this one which performs just as well, and is so unbelievably affordable!

    This is hands-down, the perfect nude. It has just the right amount of pink in it to give you color but still look natural.

    This is a must in Manila weather. It seals the deal without interfering with your makeup, and makes touching up a thing of the past.

    I always used to think primers weren't absolutely necessary but that has changed after discovering this! It makes my pores appear smaller instantly, and makes foundation application a lot smoother.

    I'm chinita so I wear eyeliner basically on a 24/7 basis. This one goes on really black, and stays on forever—even on the most humid days.

  75. A Beauty Editor's Product Guide For Your Skin Type[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Only a few people remember that the skin is our body's largest organ and needs a bit of tender loving care to reach its maximum potential. And while we'd all love to have just one holy grail product to work its magic, it's important to note that no two skin care products work the same on our skin, and your skin type should be the most crucial consideration.


    Here are some skin products that we carry on Calyxta that would be beneficial for your skin's needs.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"] Oily Skin [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Oily-skin.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/product-category/skin/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.77" align="center" max_width="74%" module_alignment="center" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Those with oily skin have a tendency to worry about shine and acne, and less about early signs of aging. Oily skin responds best to a foaming cleanser, a toner to help balance PH levels, and a lightweight moisturizer. It can also benefit from anti-bacterial properties of acne treatments.


    We like: PORERINA FACE WASH (P935.00) Washes away old skin cells, sebum, impurities and blackheads. Formulated with Moroccan ghassoul to absorb sebum and French sea salt to moisturize, this wash acts as a pore treatment.


    COSRX AHA/BHA CLARIFYING TREATMENT TONER (P657.00) A toner that's great for your daily exfoliation needs while prepping your skin post-cleanse to best absorb skin treatments.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    SIMPLE HYDRATING LIGHT MOISTURIZER (P500.00) A facial moisturizer that provides care with a light feel on skin, keeping your skin moisturized and pampered while being quickly absorbed.


    COSRX ACNE PIMPLE MASTER PATCH (P200.00) Little pimple patches that are an overnight fixer to make whiteheads, blackheads and picked zits disappear by morning. These get sold out on super quickly!

    When skin is dry, results may include creasing and developing fine lines prematurely---if not prevented early on. It's important to retain as much moisture as possible by keeping your body hydrated and locking serums in with an effective moisturizer.


    We like HUMAN NATURE NOURISHING FACIAL WASH (P200.00) A natural, nourishing facial wash that is ideal for normal, dry, or sensitive skin.


    PIXI VITAMIN WAKEUP MIST (P900.00) A boosting treatment toner mist that gives a revitalized awakened effect to your complexion. It's one of the best revitalizing treats to tired skin! At any time of the day, the Pixi Vitamin Wakeup Mist cools, refreshes, and energizes the skin.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    VICHY AQUALIA THERMAL DYNAMIC HYDRATION POWER SERUM (P1,795.00) A lightweight water-based serum for 48-hour hydration without stickiness or oiliness.


    WELEDA SKIN FOOD 75ML (P900.00) This cream contains nourishing plant oils that restore and protect the skin. It deeply moisturizes for that supple, healthy glow. Ideal for dry and rough skin. It's often used for dry spots such as hands, feet, and elbows but can also be used as a moisturizer for the face!

    People with combination skin may experience both dry and oily---for instance, oily T-zones and dry cheeks. Here are some products to help restore balance and not strip skin off its moisture when needed.


    We like: ACURE FACIAL CLEANSING CREME (P600.00): A foaming, creamy facial cleanser that has moisturizing benefits of organic Moroccan argan oil, olive oil, and cocoa butter and the soothing deep cleanse of mint.


    PIXI SKINTREATS GLOW TONIC (P1,690.00) It's an oxygenating, exfoliating facial glow tonic that helps tone, firm, and tighten the skin. It removes dead skin cells for healthier looking skin, and ideal for all skin types.

    IT'S SKIN POWER 10 FORMULA SYNAKE EFFECTOR 30ML (P679.00) It's Skin Power 10 Formula Syn-ake is a highly effective serum containing Syn-ake peptides which mimic the action of snake venom. Wrinkles are "frozen," preventing the formation of new creases and lines to give an evenly-toned complexion.


    ACURE BRIGHTENING FACE MASK (P600.00) A French green clay face mask, which sheds weekly dirt, and grime buildup.

Real Bride: Paula Monzon-Ladiao[et_pb_section fb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Paula-Monzon-Ladiao.x40925.jpg" _builder_version="3.0.77"][/et_pb_image][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77" inline_fonts="Dancing Script"]

    What lip color did you choose for the wedding day?


    I chose a pinkish nude shade with a matte finish for my lips to stay true to the “no makeup” makeup look I was going for.


    What was in your wedding day makeup kit/pouch?


    I didn’t want to worry about holding anything but my bouquet during my wedding day so I didn’t have a purse/bag with me. I had my HMUA on standby for the entire day to do some touch-ups during the photoshoot and before the reception. And since she used airbrush, the makeup stayed put until I had to take if off for bed!


    What were the preparations you did for your skin prior to the wedding day? Did you go to a skincare center regularly? What kind of services did you have done? Is this something you would recommend to other brides-to-be?


    I have been doing regular monthly facial sessions even before I got engaged because I have acne-prone skin, so I just continued to do that as a prep for my wedding. In addition to the regular facial sessions, I also invested on a good skin care set from a Korean beauty store. I would definitely recommend this to brides-to-be, especially because stress in planning can cause break-outs. Good skin makes a good canvas for your makeup artist.



    "Good skin makes a good canvas


    for your makeup artist."

    What’s the inspiration behind your wedding look? Did you have any hair and makeup pegs?


    Simple and fresh would best describe the look I wanted for my wedding which is why I went for the “no makeup” makeup look. For my hair, I remember specifically wanting to have it in an up-do during the church ceremony but had my HMUA do a style that can easily be transformed to loose curls for a more relaxed feel during the reception.


    Who designed your wedding gown, and how did you come up with the style? How long did it take to create or find the perfect wedding dress?


    I had this one and only peg for the wedding gown I wanted and sought the help of my good friend, Ana Vitangcol, to tweak the design and create the gown as she sees best suits my personality. The silhouette of my gown is a mermaid cut so I really wanted the fit to be perfect. Good thing Ana is an expert in making dresses look like your second skin! Like my hairstyle, my wedding gown was made to have a second look for the reception. It converts to a tube dress by simply removing the sheer body suit with laced sleeves that is worn under the dress. It took five months to get the gown ready for the big day – long wait but worth it!


    How did you choose your hair and makeup artist?


    My HMUA was one of the suppliers we booked during a bridal fair. Luckily, we saw Jeanne Lu’s booth giving away a free trial that day so I decided to go for it. I loved how I looked so we booked her right away.

    Did you have your nails done? If so, where? Would you recommend this nail salon to others?


    I got my nails done in Dashing Diva. I went for a nude color for my nail polish and light blue for my toes to serve as my “something blue” for that day. Gel polish was used for both my hands and feet to avoid chipping. I do recommend Dashing Diva because they really know how to take care of nails, they have hygienic tools – everything is sterilized and the foot scrub is disposable. The salon itself is very clean and chic too!


    What was your biggest takeaway from your wedding day? Do you have any beauty-related tips you’d like to share to upcoming brides?


    Learn when to let go because you can’t control everything and not everything will go as planned. Just relax and enjoy every bit of your special day because more hard work would be needed moving forward!


    As early as possible during the planning, it would help to be specific and know exactly what you want and how you want to look like during your wedding day. This way you’d have ample time to prepare for your skin, fitness, and in booking the right suppliers that will help you achieve the look that you’re going for.

    What was the best beauty advice you received that helped you prepare for your wedding?


    Best advice that I got would be to live a healthy lifestyle – get enough sleep, eat right, exercise, and always stay optimistic. It will help you have a clear mind and a good disposition, which you would need a lot of while planning a wedding.


    How about in terms of fitness? What did you do months before the wedding to stay in shape and make sure your wedding dress fit perfectly? Did you enroll in a gym or fitness center? What was your diet like?


    I focused mainly on eating healthy, avoiding sweets and salty food. I also enrolled for a gym membership in Anytime Fitness. I liked that they’re open 24/7 so I can go there super early in the morning or late at night. I also enjoyed the experience because I got trained by my then fiancé – now husband – Miko. It was a good bonding and a distressing activity for us during the wedding planning.

  77. Five Halloween Costumes Using Eyeliner[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    October is definitely an exciting month, because it means Halloween is just around the corner! And while it's extra fun spending time picking out the perfect costume (complete with props), work, school, or life in general can get in the way of our hunt for the ensemble we want. So if you find yourself on the eve of Halloween unprepared and costume-less, fret not because there are a ton of options we have for you that require one single essential tool that you probably already have in your kikay kit: EYELINER! Time to bring out your inner Picasso and read on for the top five Halloween looks that require only your eyeliner:

    Britney, Lindsey, Nicole Richie, and every Hollywood Bad Girl went through a rough phase in the past when all they did was drink, party, and drink some more. Though these girls have thankfully bounced back from those rough patches of their lives, unfortunately, all these antics and the walk of shames with smudged eyeliner were immortalized in tabloid photos taken by
    the paparazzi. Sad as it may be, the train wreck look has become sort of iconic, and if you're absolutely pressed for time, just smudge some eyeliner on your lower lids and walk into a party channeling 2007 Britney.

    Okay, so coming as the Queen of the Nile might require a bit more than just eyeliner (and maybe throw in a wig with bangs if you can). But eyeliner is definitely the most memorable feature on Cleopatra's face, as immortalized onscreen by no other than Dame Elizabeth Taylor.

  78. Maureen Wroblewitz: Rouged Rockabilly[et_pb_section fb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Since winning Asia's Next Top Model earlier this year, Maureen Wroblewitz has become a household name with an invaluable face that has graced the covers of some of the country's most renowned magazines. It's also a well-known fact that she's half-Filipina and half-German---a subdued depiction of this week's theme, focusing on the earliest styles of rock and roll music that rose in the 1950s-blending the sound of country with rhythm and blues.


    Our second cover story delves more into our cover girl's childhood and what it was like growing up in Saudi Arabia before moving to Germany, and then to the Philippines. It was a pretty eye-opening moment, given that Mau's soft-spoken ways tend to make her appear more mysterious. And it's precisely this meekness that makes you want to know more about the model, how close she really is to her relatives here in the Philippines, what her favorite Filipino food is, and her other passion besides modelling.

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    What was your childhood like? Was it always your dream to become a model? Or did you sort of have another profession in mind?


    I had a really fun childhood. It was different because I grew up in Saudi Arabia, and I lived in a compound. It was like, this community kind of thing---we knew the people there. All the kids in the compound were friends. It was so much fun. I was never really the girly type. So when I was younger, I'd never really thought of modelling because I thought it was so girly. For a while, I wanted to be a vet. But then I realized I can't see blood. Like, really, when I see blood, I could faint. It's that bad. So, I was like, I can't do this. And then, there was a phase that I wanted to be an actress. It's still there but then, after that, when we moved to Germany, I watched Germany's Next Top Model. That's when I started to want to be a model. Because there were also a few people saying, "Oh, you can be a model," and this, and that. So, I was just thinking about it, and that's where it started. I think I was around 12 years old

    What did your dad and siblings say when you decided to enter Asia's Next Top Model?

    When I told my dad that I was going to join, that I was going to the casting, my dad was like, "What? Asia's Next Top Model? Really? You want to go there?" And I was like, "Yeah, I want to try it out." Even though I didn't really want to join, I thought it would still be a good opportunity to do a casting experience. So I said I'm just going to try it out because I didn't think they would take me. And then, when I told my dad that they wanted me, he was so happy for me. But he was like, "You know, you have to know if you really want this." And my dad has always been very supportive of my modelling career, and my sisters are very proud of me. I have 3 sisters and they're very proud of me. They've known since I was 12---no, not 12. Maybe 13, because I didn't tell everyone yet. But they knew that I wanted to be a model and so, they were very proud of me. They still are.


    How has it been living in the Philippines?


    Even if we lived abroad, we were still in the Philippines every year, or sometimes even twice a year. So I was used to the culture. I know the culture, I know the people here. And I have a big family as well. I love being here because I'm family-oriented, and I love being with my family. So, yes, I love being here, especially because my family is here. And I just love that the people are very friendly and welcoming. And the food is better than in Germany. (laughs)

    Can you speak Filipino?


    I can understand Tagalog. And I can speak a little but not really. Like not fluent.


    What's the difference growing up in Saudi Arabia, then in Germany, versus the culture and the lifestyle here?


    Saudi Arabia was so different. It was more strict and conservative. And then Germany, on the other hand, was more free. Especially where we lived, it was in the middle of nowhere and it was on the countryside. So most people are just drinking, and Germans are known for drinking a lot. You'd start when you're maybe a teen. And you're legally allowed to buy beer and wine at 16. It was very different from Saudi. And I feel like people in Germany are, very, very open. It depends where you are there. It's different if you compare the Philippines to the Western culture. Philippines is very traditional and most people are conservative. So that's the difference from Germany. People here are more conservative, and don't show that much skin. In Germany, there are beaches where you can be naked! But I love it in Germany and the Philippines.


    What's your favorite thing about the Philippines?


    I love the people here. They're very welcoming, very friendly. And then I also love the food. My mom used to cook Filipino food all the time. That's how we got to know Filipino culture and food.


    What's your favorite Filipino food?

    I love palabok, and I love adobo. Arroz caldo, too. I love a lot of things. (laughs)

    Have you been to all the tourist spots in the Philippines?


    Not yet. But I've been to Palawan, Bohol, Cebu, and Boracay. Then a few beaches nearby like Baler and Batangas.


    Which area did you like most?


    Bohol. I think Palawan would've been nice if we were somewhere else because we went to Puerto Princesa---it was just a few weeks ago. Two of my friends were here, but we didn't catch good weather. So I feel like Palawan would be a lot nicer if we went and the weather was nice. Oh, I was in Legazpi as well! Legazpi is nice.


    Where do you want to go next if ever? Or go back to?


    I think it was called...Siargao?

    Do you have any other hobbies or interests outside of modelling? Were you into sports?

    I was so bad at sports, no. (laughs)

    How about music?

    Also not good. I was more of into cooking. I started when I was 11. That's also when I started to like baking as well. So, sometimes if I've got time, I like cooking, and then baking. Then it depends on my mood. I like to do sketches, drawings, and paintings.


    Oh, you're more on the artistic side!


    Yeah, I think so.


    What kind of stuff do you cook? What's your specialty?


    I like cooking pasta. Different kinds of pasta. We've read that height is an insecurity of yours. What makes you feel tall or confident? Or how do you overcome that insecurity? I just feel like your attitude and your personality just has to be a lot taller than your height. And also---be inspiring to other people. Being a kind and approachable person is a lot better than just being tall and super model-like. But, yeah. All I'm saying is that your personality has to bigger than your height, or taller than your height.

  79. Pin-up Pretty[et_pb_section fb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    Maureen Wroblewitz has definitely made a mark, not just for herself, but for the whole country as she recently became the first Filipina to win the fifth cycle of Asia's Next Top Model. This year has surely been golden for Mau, making her pin-up worthy!


    Look as chic as our #CalyxtaGirl by following these steps:


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_3" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/Mehron-Skin-Prep-Pro.x40925.jpg?x16651" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/mehron-skin-prep-pro-120ml/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.77" align="center"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77" custom_margin="30px|||"]

    1) Start by priming your face before applying anything else. Depending on your skin type, choose the finish that best suits you. Try the MEHRON SKIN PREP PRO, P600, for a primer that is suited for all skin types. Allow a few minutes for it to set before moving on to the next step.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77" custom_margin="40px|||"]

    2) For a flawless yet lightweight foundation, try the MAYBELLINE FIT ME MATTE + PORELESS FOUNDATION, P399, for a natural, matte finish.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_3" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/Maybelline-Fit-Me-Matte-Poreless-Foundation-125-Nude-Beige.x40925.jpg?x16651" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/maybelline-fit-matte-poreless-foundation/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.77" align="center"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_3" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/Milani-Retouch-Erase-Light-Lifting-Concealer-02-Light.x40925.jpg?x16651" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/milani-retouch-erase-light-lifting-concealer/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.77" align="center"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77" custom_margin="30px|||"]

    3) Conceal those dark under eye circles and other blemishes with the MILANI RETOUCH + ERASE LIGHT-LIFTING CONCEALER, P700. It adds a brightening effect to your face that makes you look more awake and fresh.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77" custom_margin="40px|||"]

    4) Try the COTY AIRSPUN LOOSE FACE POWDER, P630, to set your makeup in. This will prevent your makeup from melting or creasing, especially your undereye area.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_3" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/Coty-Airspun-Loose-Face-Powder-Translucent.x40925.jpg?x16651" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/coty-airspun-loose-face-powder-65g-translucent/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.77" align="center"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_3" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Charlotte-Tilbury-Filmstar-Bronze-and-Glow-Light-to-Medium.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/charlotte-tilbury-filmstar-bronze-glow/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.77"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77" custom_margin="47px|||"]

    5) Achieve cheekbones ala Maureen's by giving it extra definition with some contour and highlight. The CHARLOTTE TILBURY FILMSTAR BRONZE & GLOW in Light to Medium, P4,500, is the perfect palette to work with to create that gorgeous definiton and glow.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77" custom_margin="40px|||"]

    6) For the eye look, Janina Dizon, Maureen's makeup artist, shares how she created this look: "I used minimal eyeshadow for this. Just champagne eyeshadow and light taupe for a little eye contour, and focused on that dramatic cat eye!" Play with the stunning colors of the PINK SUGAR EYE CANDY EYESHADOW QUAD in CAFÉ LATTE, P399, to get the look!


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_3" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Pink-Sugar-Eye-Candy-Eyeshadow-Quad-Caf%C3%A9-Latte.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/eyes/pink-sugar-eye-candy-eyeshadow-quad/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.77" align="center"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_3" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/hypersharp-power-black-1080x1080px.x40925.png?x16651" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/eyes/maybelline-hypersharp-liner-power-black/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.77" align="center"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77" custom_margin="15px|||"]

    7) For an easy glide eye liner, use the MAYBELLINE HYPERSHARP LINER POWER BLACK, P349, for a blacker than black intensity in just one swipe to instantly get a dramatic cat eye look.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77" custom_margin="25px|||"]

    8) After curling your lashes, apply a layer of the KISSME HEROINE MAKE LONG & CURL MASCARA SUPER WP, P750, for a super waterpoof mascara that lengthens and curls your lashes for more than 24 hours.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_3" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/KissMe-Heroine-Make-Long-Curl-Mascara-Super-WP.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/eyes/kissme-heroine-make-long-curl-mascara-super-wp/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.77" align="center"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="1_3" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Malissa-Kiss-Velvet-Matte-Lip-Color-Burgundy-Dip.x40925.jpg" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/lips/malissa-kiss-velvet-matte-lip-color/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.77"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77" custom_margin="25px|||"]

    9) Janina suggests to, "Use a bright red lipstick with a bluish undertone (just like the MALISSA KISS VELVET MATTE LIP COLOR in BURGUNDY DIP, P299), to finish the look!"


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.77" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

  80. Janina Dizon[et_pb_section fb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    One third of Maureen's staple glam team, Janina Dizon was a breath of fresh air on set as she quietly and effortlessly worked on recreating four of the most iconic beauty looks from the '50s. Upon seeing the raw, unedited versions of the photos from the shoot, Mau looked flawless and stunning with her impeccable makeup looks that were insta-ready for posting.


    If you follow her on Instagram, you've probably figured out by now that she's a big foodie. She loves to cook and experiment with food as much as she loves beauty and makeup! And if you've happened to pass by a Nescafé ad in the grocery, it's possible that this might have been this gorgeous lady's work. She's also collaborated with other international names such as Mossimo for their Fall campaign and UNICEF for women's month. Keep reading to know more about this lovely artist!

    1. How did it all start for you? When did it all start?


    It actually started at an awkward stage in my life (quarter life crisis! Haha!) when I was unsure of what I wanted to do or be. I wasn't really into makeup growing up, but it all started when a friend of mine studied makeup and I got curious---from there, the rest is history.


    2. What do you love most about your job?


    It's the best feeling when you make someone feel more confident---you can see it in their eyes! I love it when clients take extra effort to let you know how happy they are with your work and how it made them feel great that day! That inspires me to do better and work more!


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.77"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    4. Is this the career you've always wanted to pursue?


    When I was younger, my dream was to become a journalist. To travel and work at the same time. But being a makeup artist lets you travel and meet a lot of interesting people, too. I love my job!


    5. Name three projects you're really proud of.


    Hmmm...I think I'm proud of all my projects. But if I had to choose three, it would be: Mossimo 2013 Fall Campaign because that's one of my first billboards. I feel giddy seeing my work anywhere. Second, a Nescafé ad that I did a couple of years ago that I always see in the grocery (I love going to the grocery! It's a big plus to see my work there). Last is a project that I did for women's month a few years back where I got to meet UNICEF ambassadors. It's always nice to meet and work with such strong and intelligent women!

    6. What is the best advice that you've received about makeup?


    Less is more!


    7. Other than makeup, what are your other interests/hobbies?


    I love to cook! It's another passion of mine. I'm happy when I'm cooking just like how I am when I'm doing makeup.


    8. What do you do in your spare time?


    I cook! I experiment on random recipes that I have. I also make time to have fun, enjoy, and travel when I have free days from work.

  81. Line It Up: The 5 Best Liquid Eyeliners for Oily Lids[et_pb_section fb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.75"]

    Perfectly defined eyes. They make your eyes bigger, create the illusion of longer lashes, and add drama to almost any look. Defined eyes are also an elusive dream for most women with oily eyelids! Finding a liquid eyeliner that will stay on all day can be a frustrating search so Calyxta did all the trying and testing for you. These are the ones that didn't budge at all!


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.75"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.75"]

    1. Maybelline HyperSharp Liner Power Black, P349

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.75"][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/hypersharp-power-black-1080x1080px.x40925.png?x16651" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/eyes/maybelline-hypersharp-liner-power-black/" url_new_window="on" _builder_version="3.0.75" max_width="68%" module_alignment="center"][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.75" custom_margin="20px|||"]

    The product description says this liner is oil-resistant. That's an important detail because waterproof doesn't necessarily mean oil-proof. In fact, how do we remove waterproof makeup? With cleansing oil! So oily lids may just break down any liner that says waterproof. But this baby stayed on and on.


    Our Managing Editor, Gretchen Gatan, says, "I used this while playing frisbee and it didn't budge!"

    Our Graphic and Media Artist, Ming Bagaforo, highly recommends this affordable liner on our list. She drew her cat's eye liner at 10am and it lasted until she removed it 12 hours later. Ming says it even "withstood my sweaty boxing session at the gym which says a lot in terms of its longevity." Read her full review here.

    Makeup artist, Amanda Padilla, says she has "fallen in love with the dense color of its Kill Black edition." She goes on to praise the perfect brush tip and how even after several washes, the line stays on your lids. Read her full review here.

    If you have eyes that react to allergens like crazy, then it's best to use an eyeliner that is suited for sensitive eyes. I especially like that this has castor oil, which helps eyelash growth. The felt tip applicator is stiff but not scratchy and dispenses just enough pigment. Best of all, my eyeliner stayed on my super oily lids all day!

    As a tattoo artist, Kat Von D sure knows her inks and when she applied her know-how to her makeup line, we paid attention. This eyeliner is loved by makeup professionals (and Reddit users) for its ability to create the finest lines with the deepest, most budge-proof pigment. A lot pricey but worth it for perfectionist winged liner fans!

    It's that time of the year when nail-polish lovers take out bottles filled with black, orange, red, white, and purple liquid, and have fun creating scary scenes on their nails! Here are simple Halloween-inspired nail art we found on Instagram that look easy enough to do:

  84. Bridal Beginnings at Crimson Hotel[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.75"]

    Every wedding is the beginning of a grand story, and Crimson Hotel Filinvest City, in partnership with Wedding Essentials Magazine and fashion designer, Francis Libiran, invited couples to write the first chapter of the rest of their lives at the Beginnings Bridal Showcase. The one-day affair exhibited breathtaking displays of themed weddings held at Alabang's premier hotel, and was highlighted by a fashion show featuring Francis Libiran's latest bridal collection, Affair de Coeur.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Francis-Libiran-Bridal-Gown-Display2.x40925.jpg" _builder_version="3.0.75" align="center" /][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.75"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.75"]

    Throughout the day, guests were taken on a tour of the different bridal showcases. For couples enchanted by a romantic wedding setting, the Dainty theme, with its classic and feminine touches of peach and blush combined with the regal color of gold or champagne, was the ideal reception setup. The Crimson Posh theme, on the other hand, displayed a wedding reception set amidst a backdrop of deep red roses, and sparkling lights romantically adorning the whole area. Table centerpieces were bursting with crimson roses, crystal décor, and silver accents. For those looking for a theme that's more intimate and idyllic without losing its luxe feel, the Country theme is perfect, combining wood accents and bountiful floral arrangements with the charm of earth-toned décor.

    As for the wedding itself, there was no better backdrop than the blue skies. The Deck was converted into an al fresco ceremony, with refreshing and elegant floral arrangements that conveyed a cheerful daytime wedding ceremony or a dreamy evening celebration.

    The Beginnings Fashion Show was graced by soon-to-wed couples, friends from the media, online influencers, celebrities, and trendsetters. Crimson Hotel's General Manager, Gerhard Doll, presided the opening of the show, followed by the presentation of the Events Team.

    The first half of the fashion show unveiled Francis Libiran's bridal collection, with 10 stunning gowns that left the guests wanting to see more. The couture collection, also with 10 exquisite pieces and was headlined by Vickie Rushton, Kylie Verzosa and her escort Markki Stroem, was inspired by Parisian architecture and the foliage that lined its picturesque streets, as seen in the gowns' meticulously-crafted embroidery. The dresses, made of luxurious Chantilly lace, Duchess satin, and Mikado silk, flowed beautifully with each model's step. Each gown was constructed with Libiran's signature minimalism, with every line designed to bring out the best in a woman's personal shape, allowing her to look flawless in any setting.

"It is such an honor to have worked with one of the country's most talented fashion designers, Francis Libiran. He is such an inspiration to many, and the fashion show became a feast for everyone's eyes. In addition, partnering with Wedding Essentials made the first ever 'Beginnings' event a momentous one.

  85. Engagement Rings 101: Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.75"]

    Wedding bells might just be ringing in your horizon, so it's time to get a little bit more knowledgeable about the engagement ring of your dreams. Engagement rings are often judged on 4Cs: cut, color, clarity, and carat.


    Here's a quick guide to help you!


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.75"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.75"]

    CUT


    This is the shape of the diamond and is often seen as the most important aspect of choosing an engagement ring.


    The cut of the diamond is one important factor in determining its brilliance. When a diamond is well cut, light is able to reflect off of the diamond’s facets, which creates the sparkle that makes these gemstones so popular. Of the four C’s, the cut has the biggest impact upon the beauty of the stone, as a poorly cut diamond simply won’t have the oomph that a higher quality gemstone possesses.


    [/et_pb_text][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/diamond-cut.x40925.png" _builder_version="3.0.77" align="center" /][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.77"]

    When considering different cuts of diamonds, be sure to pay close attention to three attributes:




    • Brilliance – the amount of light return offered by the diamond

    • Fire – the flashes of color that are reflected off the diamond

    • Scintillation – the amount of sparkle


    If a diamond is cut properly, it will display all three qualities, as the facets will but cut at an angle that allows light to reflect from the top of the stone, rather than seep through the bottom or sides. We suggest to determine which shape you prefer, as this is not the same as the cut. For example, an “emerald” diamond is rectangular in shape, while a “princess” cut is square. Each shape will also have a different amount of facets, which has a direct impact upon the brilliance, scintillation, and fire of the stone.

    These are your classic, beautiful engagement ring shapes.

    Princess Cuts

    These come in square or rectangular shapes, yet still have the same sparkle of the round cut.

    Emerald Cuts

    Because of their flat and clear table, emerald cut diamonds are the first to show any flaws, so the diamond has to be impeccable.

    COLOR

    Color or lack of, is what makes a diamond look like a sparkling piece of light on your finger. The more yellow the diamond, the lower it falls on the color scale, while whiter diamonds are on the more expensive side.


    When choosing a diamond, you’ll actually want to look for a stone that lacks color, unless you prefer colored diamonds, such as a yellow canary diamond. Stones that are marked as D, E, or F on the color grading scale are considered to be colorless, while those that fall under G, H, or I are near-colorless on the diamond color scale.

    CLARITY

    This is the slight clouding, cracks, or imperfections noted on the diamond. Oftentimes, these cannot be seen with the naked eye.


    The clarity of the diamond is determined by the number and size of inclusions it has. These inclusions are natural flaws that affect the overall look of the stone. Typically, these inclusions can be viewed under 10-power magnification, which is used to determine the stone’s place on the diamond grading scale. If a stone has very few inclusions, it is typically more expensive, given that the light is able to reflect off the gemstone without being hindered by its flaws. If a diamond is free of inclusions, it is considered to be “flawless” and usually comes at a steep price given its rarity.

    CARAT

    We all know that carat refers to the size and weight of the diamond though honestly, this isn't something you should be concerned about. The carat size of a diamond is generally not as important as other aspects of the diamond grading scale, such as the cut, given that it does not have a direct bearing upon the brilliance or sparkle of the diamond itself. A partner who knows you and knows what's important to you will surely give you the ring of your dreams!

  86. Big in Beauty: Hot Beauty Trends to Watch Out For[et_pb_section fb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.75" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.75"]

    The hot trend in beauty: extremely long-wearing and beauty-enhancing products to simplify (and speed up) your daily routine.

    7-Week Hair Color

    Unicorn or pastel hair has been all the rage lately but who has the time (and money!) to visit the salon to get the deed done? If you're craving for a new look but aren't keen on investing in anything permanent, try out these new temporary color treatments from April Skin, which deposit color pigments to your locks but fade away after a week or so. Make sure though that your hair is on the healthy side---damaged or extremely processed hair tends to absorb the pigments in a rather aggressive manner, so it would be best to test the product on a section first before committing to it entirely.

    K-Palette, Etude House, and Maybelline recently launched their respectiv brow tints which promise to leave a long-lasting stain on your arches so that they appear fuller and "done" all day---even after you've cleansed your face! To apply, make sure brows are clean and stripped of any oil, then paint on a thick coat over your brows, making sure to stay within the borders. Leave the tint to dry for two full hours, then peel it off.

    If you're non-committal about lashes and refuse to have lash extensions done, but also don't have the mad skills or time to attach false eyelashes, lo and behold, a woman named Katy Stoka of One Two Cosmetics has finally created the most amazing product: magnetic lashes!


    How it works: the secret is its patented micro-magnetic technology, which lets you have long and lush lashes in seconds. Just sandwich each magnetic lash strip between your own natural lashes-you'll feel them click into place, and they'll be secure the entire day.

    Removing them is just as easy: use your thumb and forefinger to slide the magnetic strips apart. Remember, the lashes should never be pulled off the eyes.

    Tinted lip balms and lip glosses have morphed into one fantastic product: the lip oil. Part skin care, and part makeup, these lip oils manage to care for dry lips while providing a veil of color. These oils are a remarkable improvement from lip glosses because they finally aren't sticky, and won't make your partner think twice about locking lips with you.

  87. Real Bride: Marika Anareta-Celdran[et_pb_section bb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="1_2"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.75" inline_fonts="Dancing Script,Crimson Text"]

    What’s the inspiration behind your wedding look? Did you have any hair and makeup pegs?


    I made sure my wedding look was as natural as possible, with a touch of bohemian and garden chic. My hair was just down, topped with a flower crown (which was a part of my dream wedding look). I gathered all of my pegs from Pinterest.


    Who designed your wedding gown, and how did you come up with the style? How long did it take to create or find the perfect wedding dress?


    I already had my dream wedding dress in mind even before I got engaged. (Haha!) I wanted it to be simple but elegant. It was by Daniel Cuneta, one of my family's trusted designers.


    How did you choose your hair and makeup artist?


    I met my hair and makeup artist, Geraldine Carlos, during a photoshoot for Metro Weddings magazine, which was perfect, actually! I fell in love with how she made me look, so, I booked her right then and there.

    What lip color did you choose for the wedding day?


    For my lips, I used NYX Lip Lingerie in Bedtime Flirt. It's a pretty nude-pink matte liquid lipstick.


    What was in your wedding day makeup kit/pouch?


    My wedding day makeup pouch included just my lipstick, powder, concealer, mascara, eyelash curler, and false eyelash glue (don't forget this one if you're using falsies!) for touch-ups and emergencies.


    What were the preparations you did for your skin prior to the wedding day? Did you go to a skincare center regularly? What kind of services did you have done? Is this something you would recommend to other brides-to-be?


    A few days before the wedding, I had a facial and had my eyebrows done. I think getting a facial is important so you'll have a smooth surface for makeup application. Plus, your skin will look clearer, brighter, and glowing.

    What was the best beauty advice you received that helped you prepare for your wedding?


    Best beauty advice I've received: Drink LOTS of water, exercise and get as much (beauty) rest as possible!


    How about in terms of fitness? What did you do months before the wedding to stay in shape and make sure your wedding dress fit perfectly? Did you enroll in a gym or fitness center? What was your diet like?


    3 months prior to the wedding, I got into a strict high fiber/carbohydrate diet and exercise routine. I did high intensity interval training 3 times a week and low intensity steady state cardio during the days in between. I also tried to stay away from junk food, although I rewarded myself with cheat meals during weekends. Drinking a lot of water helped me as well. I did all the training at home, by myself.

    Did you have your nails done? If so, where? Would you recommend this nail salon to others?


    I had my nails done in Dashing Diva two days before the wedding.


    What was your biggest takeaway from your wedding day? Do you have any beauty-related tips you’d like to share to upcoming brides?


    Don't go overboard with the make-up and hair-styling. I think natural is still the most beautiful.

  88. The Ultimate Cult-Fave Round-Up[et_pb_section bb_built="1" transparent_background_fb="default" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.72"]

    What exactly makes a product cult-favorite? Well, a lot of things. But mostly, these are beauty products that begin with a niche market and then rose to fame not because of heavy marketing gimmickry but instead, through honest-to-goodness, word-of-mouth raves from beauty mavens both locally and internationally. In other words, these are products that work so well, they gain a loyal following mainly based on their effectivity.


    Here we have compiled a list of cult-faves we have at Calyxta, and what our favorite bloggers and vloggers have to say about them:

    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.72"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.72"] 1. RCMA No Color Powder [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.72"][et_pb_column type="1_3"][et_pb_image src="https://www.calyxta.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/RCMAnocolor-powdef-LRG.x40925.png?x26722" url="https://www.calyxta.com/shop/make-up/rcma-no-color-powder-3-oz/" url_new_window="on" max_width="500px" _builder_version="3.0.72" /][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type="2_3"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.72" custom_margin="12px|||"]

    "The price is amazing. If you use a ton of powder for baking or are on a budget, I would definitely recommend this product." -Kate Winford


    What it is: A non-pigmented powder that will set your makeup with a flawless finish. Because of its translucent formula, this complements almost any skin tone!


    This powder is a certified Calyxta Crew Favorite---everyone in our HQ has a bottle in her makeup stash!

  89. The Golden Age of Maureen Wroblewitz[et_pb_section fb_built="1" _builder_version="3.0.47"][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.47" background_size="initial" background_position="top_left" background_repeat="repeat" _i="0" _address="0.0"][et_pb_column type="2_3" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.75"]

    Finding a date to do our cover girl shoot with Maureen Wroblewitz proved to be a little more challenging---the 19-year-old has been fully booked with shoots, appearances, promotions, and endorsements since winning Asia's Next Top Model Cycle 5. And while her journey during the reality TV show wasn't as smooth as one would hope for, despite her being one of the stronger yet more silent contenders all throughout (she talks about this later on in our next cover stories), she proved everyone wrong and quickly rose to the top---bagging the crown, bringing the glory back home, and being one of the youngest contestants and the first ever Filipina to win Asia's Next Top Model.


    Though her schedule has been packed these last few months, she arrived on the morning of our shoot earlier than expected---dressed down in boyfriend jeans and a simple, black top. Without any makeup, she was still breathtakingly beautiful---hair tied in a high ponytail to show off her well-chiseled bone structure, eyes looking slightly weary (perhaps coming from another arduous shoot the previous day and not getting enough sleep), a timid yet genuine smile on her face, and responding softly when asked what she wanted to have for breakfast.


    It was honestly so captivating to watch her transform from a shy and subdued, young girl to a fierce, high-fashion model as soon as the camera started clicking. And without even having to say much (just getting shot after shot perfect), Maureen validated further what we already know---that there's a reason why she's on top, and her golden age has just begun.

    Would you consider yourself a girly-girl? Or more of a tomboy?


    I'm definitely not a girly-girl. Especially when it comes to clothes, I'm usually very casual, simple, and more boyish. It depends. Sometimes I wear a cropped top, but usually plain. I don't like colorful things or printed stuff. When it's printed, it's band shirts. So, I'm not a girly-girl.


    What's your skin type?


    My skin type is mix---it's like oily-dry. Because my mom had oily skin and my dad---well, my dad has oily skin also. I don't know. Something in between but not too oily, and not too dry.


    Did you encounter struggles with your skin as you were growing up? Like did you go through the whole breaking out phase?


    I would have a few pimples, especially when I got my period. I would have pimples that would always occur in the same spot and it wouldn't be normal, like small pimples. It would be those huge pimples that's under the skin. I had a few of those when I was younger.


    Were there any changes to your beauty routine from when you lived in Germany and when you moved here? Did you have to change up certain products?


    I changed products but not because of the weather or anything. It's just because I can't find the same products here in the Philippines. But it's the same routine.


    [/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version="3.0.75"][et_pb_column type="4_4" _builder_version="3.0.47" parallax="off" parallax_method="on"][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.0.75"]

    What's your skin care routine like? Can you describe your daytime routine and your nighttime skin care routine?


    Okay, so in the morning, I just wash my face, and I use a toner. Toner then moisturizer, and then for under the eyes, another moisturizer. And then there's this hydration spritz spray---that's in the morning. For the evening, it's the same routine. Only whenever I wear makeup, I just use a makeup remover before I use a toner. And then, I finish it up with...I have this tea tree oil, so I put it on spots.


    How about for makeup? What's your everyday makeup look?


    Now, I don't wear as much makeup as I used to back in Germany. It's because I have a lot of shoots, and I'm tired of makeup---I want my skin to rest. So whenever I go out, it's just concealer and maybe a little bit of tint on my cheeks. But the--- before I started going out without makeup or just a little bit of makeup, I would use a BB cream, then a little bit of bronzer, and a little bit of blush. Then, I would do my brows, and I would use my bronzer as my eyeshadow (I still do it!). And then, I finish off with highlighter. I love highlighter.

    What about if you have more formal events? What's your go-to glam makeup look?


    I usually go for a neutral, smoky eye. Just brown tones or nude tones. And then, nude lips.


    What's the best beauty advice you've ever received? And from who?


    My mom. She would always tell us to drink a lot of water. But also, what I just realized is that you always have to clean your face. Even if you're tired or lazy. You can't forget to clean your face or wash your face before you sleep. I would do that---like I would forget or I would be super lazy, and I would have a lot more pimples the next day. So, I stopped. And now it's a thing---I would ALWAYS wash my f
