of m.a.c and mags

hi hunnies

so sorry for the lack of post.. you know how it is..

had a catch up dinner with my girls and a couple of guy friends @ restorante pia y damaso which is heavenly! i loove it there!

it's funny how the supposed ladies night got invaded by two straight guys.

anyhow, my girls were ooh-ing and aah-ing at my new mac brushes which was a gift from my bestfriend kath who lives in the states. then, funnyman mike unson said "no big deal, that's just a pouch and several brushes"

abbie goes: " they're limited edition mac brushes and a mac pouch. that's kind of special" mike continued staring at us blankly then abbie says "imagine your bestfriend getting you new mags and customized headlights for your car" and mike goes "oh... your bestfriend must really love you then"

so there you have it ladies. if you want your man to understand and support your makeup addiction, you gotta learn the car talk and convert cosmetics into something guys could understand better.. car parts. :D

til next post.
ciao bbs

channeling KC

i know i'm a far cry from her, but i just find her beautiful! she's the cover of Metro's September issue and i was just drawn to the simplicity of the make up. mine's not perfect at all, but i'm just starting out and the no-make up look for formal events is not my forte at all. i prefer those loud looks cuz it's just a helluva lot easier to do.

i was doing some practice makeup for my cousin's sweet 16 party. in the end tho, i decided to ditch the falsies and had my hair braided. don't worry, i didn't go out at all with the falsies on. i peeled it off, washed the makeup off after and slept.
excuse the chaos in my room.
majority of the products i used for this look is gawang pinoy or philippine-made products

under-eye concealer: fanny serrano concealer stick in sand
spot concealer: fanny serrano concealer stick in walnut
setting powder: everbilena loose powder
foundation: fanny serrano cake foundation in mocha

shadow: 28 pc neutral palette
liner: everbilena eyeliner in black
falsies: something from divisoria
eyebrows: the face shop eyebrow duo powder

cheeks: fanny serrano cheek blush in silky coral

balm: Carmex
liner and lipstick: fashion21 perfect lips in flamingo
gloss: fashion21 fruit gloss (clear gloss)

i know it was a badly executed application of falsies, but i think i'm getting the hang of it! :D
