Top 10 Big Day Beauty Products

Ah… wedding day…that special day you’ve been looking forward to since childhood. A simple reason to make it as perfect as possible.

Here are some of my top 10 big day beauty product must-haves.

1. Olay Total Effects- this light,non greasy moisturizer keeps your skin healthy and hydrated the whole day.

2. Make Up Forever All Matte Primer- takes away shine/oilyness in an instant but still keeping your skin soft.

3. MAC Studio Sculpt- one of the best foundation I’ve ever used. Gives full coverage but leaves the skin soft and supple.

4. Nars Orgasm Blush- you can’t fake the bride’s natural blush on her wedding day, but you can make her more glowing by applying this perfect blush.

5. Lipstick- It will all depend on the bride (or the wedding theme) whether she wants lips pale or funky, light or dark, matte or glossy. . There’s a whole lot of lipsticks to choose from. I love Lancome Absolu Rouge lipstick in #275, it has a soft mauve color that just look so natural

6. Make Up Forever Aqua Eyes EyeLiner in Brown or Black- that big day is filled with mixed emotions. Make sure that her liner won’t smudge and is waterproof.

7. Make Up Forever Eye Seal- seal the deal, the bride needs to look fresh and made up the whole day.

8. Essie in Ballet Slippers- paint those nails with natural color like this pale pink hue which makes the illusion of longer fingers.

9. Burt Bees Hand Salve- a lot of lenses will be staring on that new ring and also a lot of hand shakes here and there for all those well wishers. Make sure you lather your hand with moisturizer.

10. Clean and Clear Oil Control Film- blot those excess oil while waiting inside the bridal car for an instant freshening up.

It is  you on the spotlight for 1 whole day and you can’t miss even a small detail.

***The companies carrying these products did not pay me in any form. These beauty products gave me good results, which I’m glad to recommend to my readers.

August Guilty Pleasures

August reflected low sales on my business but very high on expenditures. Talking about shopping for things I don’t need, least for now. Here is the list of my guilty pleasures last month.

On Beauty:

Nars Blush in Orgasm and Matahari- I just have to have these blushes.

Benefit Dr. Feel Good Face Balm- been wanting to have this since last year but it’s not available here in the Phil.

Zebra Print Cosmetic Case-  my make up studio case had a trip to the repair shop for broken legs. I need to buy an alternative for a make up gig.

Maybelline Magnum Volum’ Express Mascara- saw this one at Duty Free Shop, just want to try it.

Aveeno 24 hour Mositurizing Lotion- just what my skin needs.

Duac Ointment  (not in the picture)- for my zits, prescribed by my dermatologist.

Neutrogena Light Night Cream- run out of night cream, I normally switch brand after finishing a container.

On Fashion: Tank Tops and Dangling Earrings from Forever 21, Zara Feather Belt, Flat heel urban thongs from Matthews, Aldo Zebra Print Flats, Forever 21 Antique Ethnic Cuff.

On Lifestyle: Antique Lamp Shade, Black Brocade Curtain that I had custom-made in Kamuning, Hard wood posts, Ostrich Feathers, Cotton fabrics to be used as table runners and covers in zebra print and fuchsia pink.

Nice eh? I really should stop going to malls, supermarkets, thrift shop, etc.
