Event: The Introduction of eTwo at The Skin Clinic

If you are looking for an effective way to diminish your skin problems and get a safe facial rejuvenation service, The Skin Clinic is ready to provide the newest eTwo treatment.

What is eTwo?

eTwo combines the unique Sublime and Sublative applications for comprehensive facial rejuvenation in as little as a single treatment:

Sublime™ uses the elōs combination of safe and effective levels of infrared light and bi-polar radio frequency energies to remodel the deep dermal layer of the skin by stimulating new collagen growth.

Sublative™ fractionated bi-polar radio frequency technology places the heat energy effectively into the upper dermis where it can produce a significant increase in both collagen and elastin with minimal epidermal disruption.

Sublative has been shown to be an effective and safe way to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, acne scars and other skin irregularities in all skin types with minimal side effects, discomfort or downtime. It is also proven to improve mild to moderate wrinkles, red and brown spots, thus offering a complete face and body rejuvenation solution

OOTD: Blues and Pearls + FOTD

My father turned 65 last November 21 which also marked his retirement from government service. My brothers and I, along with our respective love partners, planned a surprise party for him. It was just an intimate event that includes the whole family, our relatives and some close friends of my dad. Although a simple get-together, it was such a great accomplishment for us because it was our first time to plan something like this.

Here are some of our event photos. 😀

After eating, we already proceeded with the program. Ms. Liz Lanuzo introduced Pixy as the newest makeup brand to hit the Philippines. This brand came from Indonesia and the products consist of Japanese ingredients which are really suited for Asian skin.

Event: Shu Uemura Drawing Pencil Workshop

Last month, BDJ Box announced in their Facebook page that Shu Uemura will be having a Drawing Pencil Workshop in which they will be featuring different eye makeup styles using the Shu Uemura Drawing Pencils.

I was able to attend the schedule that was held at the Shu Uemura counter in Rustan’s Makati. Ms. Cats Del Rosario was the Junior Make-Up Associate who did the makeup demo that afternoon.

Ms. Cats did the whole skincare routine first before applying makeup for the model. Then, she taught us how to do a perfect face makeup using different Shu Uemura products. This is actually the first time that I heard from a makeup artist that you can use two shades of foundation. The first one (the shade that is suited for the skin tone) is used for covering up the skin imperfections. The second one (a darker shade compared to the first one) is used to contour the face instead of using a powder.

After the face makeup, Ms. Cats did the eye makeup. She introduced to us the Shu Uemura Drawing Pencils. Shu Uemura aims to include fun in putting on your eye makeup so they came up with various colorful shades for you to choose from. Some of the pencils have shimmers and some have a matte finish. But all of them can effortlessly glide on your eyes so you can put on your desired look easily. Also, they are waterproof and smudge-proof. You can be sure that throughout the day, your eye makeup will stay put.

Here are some of the shades available for the Shu Uemura Drawing Pencils. 😀

Event: Bobbi Brown Makeup Workshop (Wearable Runway Trends)

Two weeks ago, I received an email invite from Bobbi Brown regarding their makeup workshops. I immediately signed up for one which is their workshop having the Wearable Runway Trends theme. 😀

It was held in front of the Bobbi Brown boutique at Rustan’s Makati Grandmall.

Remember Tamara during the Bobbi Brown x Make-Up Workshop? She was the makeup model at that time. For this workshop, she was the one who did the demo for two lovely ladies. 😀

Event: Style Origin 2014 (High Street Fashion Show – Luxury Brands)

Last Friday, I was able to watch one of the fashion show segments of Style Origin 2014 at Greenbelt 5. There were actually three schedules that day. According to, the 4PM schedule featured kids wear while the 5:30PM schedule was for casual wear. For 7PM, which I was able to see, they featured luxury brands.

I didn’t know that they will be featuring luxury brands at that time that I was able to make it for the show. I was lucky because if given the chance to choose which of the schedules I will prefer and if I know beforehand what will they feature per schedule, I will really choose this one. But of course, if I can make it for all of the shows, I would love to see all of them. 😀

The fashion show’s host that night was Ms. Bianca Valerio, a famous model, makeup artist and image consultant.
