K-Palette Thanksgiving Afternoon

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, October 5, 2015, In : Events 
When you're starting a new phase in your life, in my case marriage, things just tend to change. I no longer have the time and energy to attend all the beauty events I'm invited to. It's a good thing actually, I get to realize what brands I truly believe in. 

Cheryl Tan, owner of Beautybox Corp that brought us the many Japanese brands that we now have in Manila, thanked me last week for always supporting their events. And honestly, I felt the other way around. I'm truly grateful that these bran...

Review: Ultimate Brow Define

Posted by Dior Co on Saturday, December 13, 2014, In : Reviews 
I've recently written a blog post on Eye of Horus Metallic Icons and included in the article a sneak peek about their upcoming brow product. Well, it has made its way to us just in time for Christmas!



The slimline pointed tip is perfect for eyebrow definition while the mechanical twist up lead never needs sharpening. The Castor Oil in the formula also enhances brow condition and growth in the long run.

Available in three shades: Husk (Blonde), Dynasty (Medium Brown) and Nile (Medium/Dark)

Benefit Blings It On

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, November 10, 2014, In : Events 
Seems like body ornaments are the "in" thing to have right now. We've been seeing a lot of jewellery tattoos since last month here in Manila. It's the perfect way for fashion to fuse with beauty.

And with this trend, Benefit Cosmetics opted to join the bandwagon by introducing their newest limited edition Bling Brow, a set of brow crystal accessories made of Swarovski Crystal elements that come in eight shades. This new service adds an irresistible sparkle that’s perfect for ladies who want ...

Goodbye to Tired Eyes

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, September 29, 2014, In : Reviews 
For someone who has been an insomniac for about 10 years now, my eyes are seriously exhausted. I'm no skincare junkie but when it comes to the latest eye creams or products, I'm always first to queue for them! Just this week, I excitedly opened a package from The Body Shop that are all eye products aimed to restore tired eyes — from brightening the eye area to blurring fine eye lines to making them more awake.

Here's what I've got to say about them:

Drops of Youth Eye Concentrate

The Inglot Freedom System Is Here!

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, December 3, 2013, In : Events 
As a makeup artist, you just need color options. There are a lot of cosmetic brands out there where one can shop for what one needs, but rarely does one find all that she needs in just one store. Apparently, we don't need to store hop anymore, Inglot has finally arrived Manila!

Inglot was established over 25 years ago by a young chemist Wojtek Inglot who visualized to produce high quality products at fair and reasonable prices, using only the best possible ingredients and raw materials from th...

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 ...

All About Eyes

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, September 16, 2013, In : Reviews 
Since the K-Palette brand arrived in Manila two years ago, I lost count on how many times I've featured it here in my blog. My makeup kits aren't complete without their line of eyeliners. So it's always with excitement to receive an invitation for another K-Palette product launch. 

Last weekend, fashion and beauty bloggers alike attended K-Palette's D.Eye.Y Event at Geisha BHS Fort.


The Furoshiki wrapping technique is a very smart and eco way to wrap gifts using garments instead of paper.

One of Beauty Bar Philippine's top brands, Bloom, had a photo contest on Instagram last month where contestants can post a photo of her and her best friend at their most blooming, and the prize was an exclusive makeup class from me! 


 
 
 
Despite the heavy outpour of the rain and traffic, the winners managed to arrive and had an hour and a half session of pure makeup talk with me. Here are some photos from the makeup class:









The focus was teaching the participants on how to look naturally "bloomin...

The Right Brow Color

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, July 30, 2012, In : Tips 
I notice that almost everybody has an issue with their own natural brows. Either they’re too thick or too sparse or too thin. My pair of brows has always been thick, so my challenge was on shaping it the right way but still keeping them natural-looking.

The best brow line is one that is unobtrusive to the overall make-up and that complements the face. There have been lots of blog posts already on how to achieve the perfect shape, so I’d just skip that and discuss another consideration th...

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, October 27, 2011, In : Trend Reports 
Crackle nail polish; orange eyeshadow; hair feathers. The beauty trends of spring and summer were audacious, bohemian, and sometimes, downright insane.

Models on runways were rocking modern takes on classic looks with bold brows, skin-flattering lip colors, and barely there foundation. Here are 10 makeup looks from Fall 2011 Fashion Week that will help you tiptoe into the new season.

Majolica Majorca!

The more affordable subsidiary brand of Shiseido Japan is now in Manila! Majolica Majorca opened last March 13 in SM Makati where it joined most of the coveted make-up brands we have in the country today. It was real excitement when I first heard from a colleague, who now is handling the make-up brand, that Luxasia finally decided to bring in one of the cutest make-up brands I adored since I was a teenager! 

So I went over to SM Makati cosmetics department as usual to window shop; This time ar...

No More Trial & Error

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, October 5, 2010, In : Tips 
When I was still in gradeschool dealing with Mathematics, trial and error has always been part of the learning process to solve a certain equation. When I stepped into college, certain philosophical studies say that experience is the best way for us human beings to learn. And even after finishing school, I've had a few mishaps that could've turned to regret if I didn't convince myself that I should just "charge it to experience". 

Lucky for us ladies, when it comes to beauty choices, there a...

Perfect Arch Eyebrow Kit

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, August 18, 2010, In : Reviews 

Most people I know rely on pencils when defining their brows as it's the easiest way to "draw". However, it gives out that "drawn on" look with those, making brows look harsh and unnatural. As for powders, I feel that the loose pigments make the brows look bland and inexact. Personally, I prefer shading my arches with cake or wax product as the moist texture makes brows look more groomed afterwards, and it leaves a nice tint that makes your brows look more distinct. The pigments are not as vi...

V for Victoria

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, April 26, 2010, In : Make-up Looks 
Word is spreading around the blogosphere about Victoria Beckham’s new cover spread for the May issue of Vogue Germany. The conversation mostly surrounds a rather racy image of VB straddling a duck-shaped playground figurine. I, of course, am more concerned with a few particularly noteworthy beauty tricks, courtesy of face painter Fulvia Farolfi and manicurist-to-the-stars Tom Bachik. To properly give Posh the dark, seductive quality appropriate for women who scandalize children’s toys, Fa...

Neon Brows at Balenciaga

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, March 9, 2010,

browledepic_main.jpgTrend forecasts have been saying over and over that for fall 2010, there's a major focus on brows: They're a little darker, a bit elongated—all in all, more prominent. But at Balenciaga, makeup artist Pat McGrath took the strong-brows idea and really rolled with it, turning several of the models' eyebrows one of seven sorbet colors. If the idea of baby pink, mint green, robin's-egg blue, or pale orange brows sounds more disgusting than delicious, you have to check out the photos from the sh...

Brooke Shields' Brows at Alexander Wang

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, September 15, 2009, In : Trend Reports 

Nothing says “American sportswear” quite like the image of the girl-next-door models that dominated the 1970's and early eighties —Brooke Shields, more specifically whose long locks and big bushy brows defined the era. To properly simulate the Blue Lagoon star backstage at Alexander Wang 2 days ago, Redken’s Guido Palau added long extensions to models’ hair for drama, prepping them with a thickening lotion to provide a texturized, matte effect. Then he crafted thick, low-slung braid...
