The Body Shop Gives Back To Nature

Posted by Dior Co on Saturday, December 1, 2018, In : Announcements 
I cannot believe it's already December! Last Christmas felt just like months ago. It's gift-giving season once again and the stress of ticking off check marks on my very long list has been bothering me for quite some time now. The Body Shop is one of my favorite go-to brands for gift sets that are easily appreciated by friends and family. Every year, they have a wide selection of gift sets to choose from -- so wide that it makes it harder to choose which is for whom. 

This year is no different...

Custom Brows By Browhaus

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, August 15, 2018, In : Announcements 
I've never really trusted anyone to do my brows until last week. Can you believe I've never had my brows threaded or waxed before? The fear of having it over-plucked, or infected by unsanitary tools made me trust no one by myself and stay away from brow salons. But upon attending Browhaus' event and hearing how professional, well-trained and sanitary they are, I immediately felt confident to finally let someone touch my brows. 

Browhaus is your one-stop brow and lash grooming salon, built for ...

Cathy Doll Mini's

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, May 10, 2018, In : Announcements 
What's does summer mean to you you? To me, it's adventures right and left whether planned or spontaneous! The one thing that's kind of a drag to me though is needing to pack so many stuff for my getaways. That's why I'm a sucker for anything travel-sized. And that goes the same for my makeup. The smaller it is, the bigger chance I'll bring it with me.

Cathy Doll just read our minds ladies as they've come up with mini editions of their best-selling makeup! 

First off are their oil-controlling po...

Harnessing the Power of Seeds

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, September 27, 2017, In : Announcements 
How well we take care of our bodies and our skin definitely shows. Our bodies, including our skin, deserve a boost. That's why I'm committed to always check the ingredients list of anything I put on my skin.

Avon True developed the all-new Avon True Nutra Effects with active ingredients that were derived from the goodness of nature. With Chia Seed's omega-3 and antioxidant properties, two skincare lines were created -- MATTIFYING and HYDRA-BOOST.

Cathy Doll At 7/11

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, November 2, 2016, In : Announcements 
I've blogged about Cathy Doll twice this year. The first one was all about their grand launch and the second time was when I discovered their effective slimming products. I rarely do that with a brand and when I do, it just means I'm seriously in love with their products! 

Here's a brief description of three of whitening products I've come to try this month from Cathy Doll:

Kanebo. Everyone seems to know this brand but little do we know that it's actually a global cosmetics umbrella that brought us favorite brands such as Lunasol, Impress and Kate. They have recently launched Kanebo as a brand itself just this year January in Japan and just last week in Manila at Shangri La Fort.

Watsons Hair Treats

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, October 28, 2016, In : Announcements 
When my readers ask for my recommendation on any beauty buy, I always give them two options. First is a splurge-worthy product and second is a similar product at a much lower price. Even on a budget, there's no excuse to forego our instincts to prettify ourselves. And when our beauty is on a budget, my favorite place to look is Watsons.

Recently, Watsons has created a line for us to cop the look of luscious locks all day, everyday. Hair Treats is a line of Watsons exclusive hair care products ...

Whenever I hold private one-on-one or group makeup classes, the one thing my students are eager to learn is how to do the eye makeup. And yes, it's the most challenging tedious part of any makeover that most of us just leave it out when we do our faces.

Beyond Beauty

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, August 11, 2016, In : Announcements 
I’ve created a sister blog that will serve as a space where I can write whatever outside my profession as a makeup artist. Though beauty IS still my first love, there’s so much more about life outside of it that I want to share with the world.

I’ll still write, review and blog about beauty and anything related to it at this site but it feels so liberating to have another blog where I can share my thoughts on other stuff I’m truly passionate about such as fitness, fashion, cooking, and...

Guerlain And I

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, May 25, 2016, In : Announcements 
As you grow more mature, you go for things that are of quality even if it entails spending a few more bucks for that upgrade. When I turned 30, I honestly felt my skin and body change and promise, it's not all in my head! Pigments and color payoff aren't the only factors I consider when buying makeup. Now, the comfort feel and even scent makes it to my top priority when choosing what cosmetics to purchase. Now, my visits to department stores and boutiques are more frequent than supermarkets. ...

Manila Welcomes Cathy Doll

Lately, I've been getting more and more requests from my clients to do a Korean beauty look on them. It used to surprise me before but seeing how many Korean brands have been coming in our country, our people is surely on the prowl for the latest K-Beauty trends.

The Healing Power of Vaseline

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, May 2, 2016, In : Announcements 
Did you know that tropical weather can actually dehydrate your skin? Unbeknownst to many, living in an environment with a hot and humid climate does not mean that one’s skin will not turn dry. Every day, skin is exposed to factors that can damage and dry it out. From hot showers, air-conditioned rooms, to the heat and pollution during one’s daily commute, skin is stripped off of its natural hydration and moisture. Thanks to Vaseline, it's now easier for us to replenish our skin’s moistu...

Summer Trunkshow by Row 101

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, April 7, 2016, In : Announcements 
Lately, I've found myself in no mood to go to malls. I mean, yes, shopping is one of the most delightful things women can ever do; but it seems to be a boring task nowadays because everything's too "commercial". It's rare to find something one-of-a-kind anymore. I've heard a lot of horror stories from my friends where they attended a party or an event only to have two more women wear the same dress, shoes, and even jewellery! 

Last week, I was able to attend the exclusive Row 101 media preview...

Double Up On Beauty with Cream Silk

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, January 5, 2016, In : Announcements 
More and more, I see that Filipinas are becoming more fashion-forward, daring to stand out and look different. And this is true not only on fashion but also on beauty, especially on hairstyles. No longer are we intimidated by bright hair colors and bold hairstyles, as it has now become one of the most important forms of expressing ourselves. The problem, however, is that along with styling is the threat of dealing with dry hair.

Cream Silk, the country’s No.1 conditioner, enables the Fili...

Primadonna x Kathryn Bernardo

Posted by Dior Co on Saturday, August 29, 2015, In : Announcements 
I've faintly remember passing by the Primadonna store in SM Megamall when I was in my early 20's. I never really went in the store as I felt the selection of shoes they have are a tad bit 'old' for my taste. However, last year, the brand was revamped to cater to the new modern style of Filipinas. It's now one of the lifestyle footwear brands known for carrying the latest trends for women’s shoes. No wonder it has now grown into a retail force of over 50 vibrant and dynamic stores nationwide...

Japan's Kracie Arrives Manila

I don't know about you beauty addicts, but the first aisle I head to when at a grocery store is the toiletries aisle. We've gotten a lot of good brands over the years but somehow, they never seemed enough still. So when I heard that Kracie, a toiletry and cosmetic brand that came from Japan, is finally available in Manila, I was psyched!

Wow Brows!

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, October 1, 2013, In : Announcements 
If there's one makeup step you can't leave the house without doing, what would it be? Let me guess. Your brows. Almost all of my readers and clients say the same thing. Whenever I do makeup workshops, most of our time is spent on brow grooming. My students even tell me that if they learn how to perfect the art of shaping their brows, they can skip all the other makeup steps and leave the room happy. The correct shape of brows dramatically changes one's look.

Good news for us, Majolica Majorca ...

With the endless varieties of beauty and lifestyle products in the market, it's just so hard to make informed decisions on which ones are worth your buck.

Unlike most women, I highly crave meat and protein-rich food than carbs. I'd gladly pass up on dessert to devour a lean piece of steak. I cannot give up eating meat, though I've tried doing so a couple of times in 2006 after seeing a video on animal rights by PETA. It has saddened me to realize I can never be a vegetarian. But even so, I still advocate animal rights, being a pet owner myself. So here's something to help support an advocacy on animal rights:

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, March 17, 2011, In : Announcements

Given that most foundation ads are airbrushed to perfection, we usually take claims of flawless skin with a pinch of salt. So the beauty brand's decision to publish the world's first unretouched make-up campaign is ...

But now that I'm growing my hair, it's such a hassle to maintain the color and the highlights. I was thinking it'd be wise to dye it all in my natural hair color brown but I don't want my hair to und...
