Dare to Go Nude this 2017

Actress and cool girl Liza Soberano is MAYBELLINE'S latest spokesperson. This is one of the reasons why we couldn't be more excited about the ongoing sale in their cosmetics line!
Mabelline went as far as 25% off for their latest foundation, the DREAM VELVET. It's Maybelline's first ever hydrating matte foundation.  The original price for this puppy is 499 pesos. But thanks to the Holiday seasons, they are offering it only for 374 pesos!
Maybelline's first ever soft-matte hydrating foundation: no drying, no roughness. Feels fresh as it covers.  

This foundation hydrates skin for 12 hours and delivers a soft matte finish for velvet-smooth perfection.  No drying or roughness.  Ideal for normal to combination skin.

Apply smoothly and evenly to your face and blend with your fingertips.
When we were girls, we used to play with crayons for our artwork. Now the artwork becomes make-up and our new crayons are cosmetics. What better way to star the day than putting the perfect face to give you that extra bounce when you face the world!

After that 'supportive' blend of foundation to hide our imperfections or for some,  enhance our flawlessness, we should also beautify our eyes with MAYBELLINE'S latest "Dare to go Nude" eye shadow line. Check out their video tutorial for this lovely, and yet ever so practical palette.

Beauty is mostly all about trends. As the old adage says, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."
In Korea, they go for the  dewy look, which personally speaking for me has a luminous, youthful feel. Just to think, this look was an original of the iconic sex kitten, Ms. Manilyn Monroe! 
She and her renowned make-up artist opted for DEWY, when the dewy-look was something unheard of, even in Hollywood. It was something Marilyn came up with, with her renowned make-up artist  Allan Synder a.k.a. Whitney, to bring out the all the best assets of Ms. Monroe's facial features.

In those days of transition between black and white films to colored pictures, everything was Matte.  En route Hollywood filming, because of the blinding lights during a shoot, a make-up artist does his best to play with the actor's facial features. Ms. Monroe knew everything and did her best to use make-up to her best advantage.

In defence of the Matte look, where it is void of any shine or excess oils, it calls for less maintenance. It's no less beautiful compared to the dewy look specially when done right. It'll leave a powdery soft finish and a fresh look throughout the day.  That's why I always go for the Matte look whenever I am working and doing marathon calls as an ESL teacher.
If one is going to start off with a matte look, even without blotting or much fussing in the duration of the day, you will still end up looking polished and perfected, even with the oiliness brought about by the day. The dewy look, unfortunately requires a lot of maintenance since without giving much thought of it, one's face can really look sloppy by the end of the day. 

As for the lips, I have discovered some nudes to die for! My own MOM was looking at me funny one time, so I asked why. She said she was wondering whether or not I was wearing lipstick. 
She did not ask about the blush that I had on so I guess it also looked so natural, it was barely there. I recommend these three matte lipsticks from Maybelline; Nude Embrace, Daringly Nude and Clay Crush.
So as a verdict for a practical gal like me, I always opt for the matte look when I know that I won't have a lot of time to fuss about my make-up. 

If I want to look gorgeously immaculate and have all the time in the world to fuss around my make-up and looks, I'd go for the dewy look. Go for this practical look when you know you're going somewhere you can at least relax and put your hair down, like in a date, a family get together or some fun time with friends. The dewy look is the  perfect look to pull.
On the other hand,  maybe you'll be busy with work, a project or an event, and your hides will be tied, go for the matte effect. This way, you'll confident to maintain your looks even with some additional oils brought about by sweat and effort. 

So girls, thank you for reading! Check out Maybelline's website, Facebook page and their cosmetic counters and who knows! You'd just might uncover a treasure of your own. See you there!
