How to Save Money on Foundation

This is my go to technique when it comes to both applying and saving on foundations, BB creams and in CC creams as well.

This simple technique will help you double the life of your foundation product, it's going to give a beautiful sheer, dewy look, and also, it is going to last beautiful the whole day. 

It won't give you any troubles with oil and the continuous use of blotting paper, given that you are a person like me who has a dry to normal to dry to combination skin types.

Here are some of the products used here:

Flawless BB Cream

Age Defense Essential Emulsion

Morocco Argan Oil

nose and brow palette

Ultra Sheer

Dry Touch Sunscreen

Sports Barbers SM Mall of Asia: A Stylish Destination for the Male Grooming Generation

To put it in a nutshell, the Sports Barber is a modern take to an old classic. And to top that, none have been more accessible or as successful in providing the stylish sense that today’s grooming generations seek that Sports Barbers.

With 13 branches all over the country, Sports Barbers recreates the traditional concept of your go-to-neighbourhood barbershop and offers a destination that is modern an stylish yet stays true to what men have been used to.

 “The idea for the Sports Barber is to creat a go-to destination for men where they can expect the reliable, time honoured techniques of traditional barberin and yet know they are in the hand of people who will be able to tell the difference between a short side with brush top versus buzz crop or a pompadour versus a slick back,” ends Amaro.
It’s inherent masculine values as adventure, straightforwardness, humour and at the end of the day, natural good looks, as opposed to self-consciousness and preening, is evident in its ambience and service.

The entire concept of Sports Barbers is to deliver the best cuts fro clients, inspired by traditional hairstyles and the most stylish men. The brand’s crops of barber-stylists, a term derived from the fusion of Vidal Sassoon trained cutting and styling mixed with the efficient sensibilities of old-school barbers, mean clients can confidently step in any of their branches and emerge looking as dapper and effortlessly good looking as they can possibly be.

Their newest brand is in SM Mall of Asia. To know more, like their Facebook/sportsbarbersph, their and finally, Book your appointments today at 0915-506-7655

CAFE LUPE in Antipolo City, Philippines

Cafe Lupe is a famous hotspots for locals specially during weekend night outs. Also, it's a favourite stopover for those kababayans and other dayo's/visiting people who are offering their pilgrimage in our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage at the Antipolo Church.

The restaurant offers good, affordable food as well as a winning overlooking ambience. It's one of the best places to be specially at dusk, when the sun is setting on the horizon. You can seat in one of those sturdy stools and enjoy your drink as you savour the fresh air, peace and relaxation. 

At nighttime, things get more upbeat and stirring since the young crowds of Manila would gather here to partay or perhaps chill, depending on their offered entertainment at the time.

So, when you have the chance to go to Antipolo, try to stopover at Cafe Lupe and see the vista from the horizon. You'll surely bring happy memories with you in Cafe Lupe.

This is a MAKEUP FUNERAL or Empties Haul in other words!  I want to give a proper funeral...err...good bye I mean to my most trusted, favourite and staple products. 
Before I throw away anything, specially when I want to be reminded about a repurchase, I would take these "dying" products in my Intensive Care Unit or ICU basket. This way, I'll remember to get more of these ever reliable makeup!

Here are the products that will hopefully resurface in my collection:


Velvet Foundation
Sand Beige


Tea Tree Oil concealer

Nude Ochre



eyeliner and gel

4 in 1

pencil liner

Hypercurl Hyperlash

matte lipstick

mauve over

For the same reason that we are giving a MAKEUP FUNERAL, I made a FUNERAL APPROPRIATE MAKEUP LOOK. Maybe in the Philippines, we are more lenient about looking formal in a funeral. But in other countries, funerals are usually treated as formal occasions worthy of getting all dressed up for. For some men, this is perhaps their only time to take out their year old suits, to pay proper respects, not only for the one who died, but their families and friends as well.

So guys, I hope you like this post and give it a thumbs up.
