Sharing some photos from our annual Boracay trip.  The group's bigger and crazier this time!  Hopefully next year, I'd get to visit earlier than June or July.  :)

I love this place!  It's close to my heart.

We met this cute Korean baby at Starbucks.  *gigil

Island hopping on our second day...

First time at Puka Beach... such an amazing view.

Of course, there's a time for Jonah's!

Choco-banana for me!

Another must-visit place in Boracay - Real Coffee!  I love their Iced Cafe Mocha.

Til next year! <3

Lip balm is definitely one of those makeup products that we tend to frequently take out from our kit or bag.  Sometimes, I place it on my laptop.  Sometimes, in my wallet.  Actually, any place within my reach and where I can grab it easily.  Why?  Well, the only reason I could think of is because our lips really get dry and chappy throughout the day and we need to moisturize it very often.  Some of our lipsticks can be a bit dehydrating that's why this baby is really a must-have.

So, do you have a pretty-looking lip balm case?  Intentionally or not, you are showing it to people so might as well buy one with a cute packaging, right?

This one from Etude is not just lovely.  It's also inspiring.  Whenever I re-apply, it's like there's someone (or something :P) telling me... "괜찮아, everything is okay".

What a nice way to cheer yourself up on a bad day!  Moisturized lips plus good vibes!

Before I start my review, I want you all to meet the cutest K-Pop group - Don't Worry band!

Their leader, who sang "I'm on Your Side" loves mango and he always wear yellow.  Next is You Did It who's known for his single "Almost There".  He loves blue and vanilla.  He always keeps a straight face, but don't misunderstand.  He's really a nice, quiet guy.  The one who loves green is called Good Luck.  His hit single is "You are the Best".  We rarely see him smile.  Good thing, the boys always try to cheer him up.  Last but not the least, It's Fine.  His latest song is All is Well.  He has this feminine and perky side.  Obviously, he likes to wear pink.

You have to watch out for their next album!  HAHA! #makingthingsup

This is available locally and can be bought at 278 php.

What I love about it:

  • very moisturizing
  • great scent - smells more like strawberries for me than peaches
  • leaves the lips feeling smooth and supple
  • secured lid
  • cute design (need i say more?)
  • gives a pretty tint which turns dull lips to lively and healthy lips

Look at that!  You can definitely wear this alone because it gives a #mylipsbutbetter color.

It looks very natural and it's not annoyingly greasy.  It doesn't taste weird too!  

I love it!  <3

Been wanting to try a sweet, youthful and romantic look?  I'd recommend lavender and pink combination.  Trust me, it's very easy to pull off because of the soft hues.  If you're tired of the usual Valentine look with pink and warm eye shadow, why not play with these 2 beautiful colors?

In this look, I used 2 shades of lavender for the eyes and a soft pink blush and lipstick for that blooming effect.  You can skip the eyeliner if you like to keep it really subtle or just tightline to give it extra definition.

I'm really sorry if I can't show you the step-by-step pictures.  #badblogger

For the brows, keep it as natural-looking as possible.  Avoid the arch.  When putting on the eye shadows, start with the darker shade and pat it on all over the lids.  To blend the edges, sweep on the lighter shade.  You can play with more than 2 colors if you want.  Don't forget the lower lash line because this will accentuate the eyes.

You don't need any special blending techniques to achieve the eye makeup.  Just make sure to diffuse the color and get rid of the harsh edges.

As I've said, using an eyeliner will add definition.  So it's up to you how you would line your eyes.  For extra flirty lashes, glue on those falsies!

Adding light pink blush will enhance the overall look, so sweep a little bit on the apples of your cheeks.  You can do your usual contouring as well.

To complement the pastel eye makeup, pair it with a soft pink lipstick.  Actually, I did 2 lip looks here.  First, I used my NYX Dolly Pink lip pencil and dab on a little bit of The Face Shop's Aqua Tint on the center of my lips for that slight gradient effect.

For the second one, I used the same lip liner and The Face Shop Lovely Pink lipstick.  The color changed when applied on top of a very pale pink base.

What do you think?
