2011 Beauty Resolutions

Wednesday, January 05, 2011

As someone who is always out-and-about, on the go for every "smokin" jeep rides and "blockbuster" train adventures, The Fashionista Commuter still tries to look her best when she reaches her Anagon Buyer Meet Ups, Barx-n-Bullies Gimmicks, and all the fab Blogger Events! Here are my Beauty Resolutions for the year, as I sometimes forget that beautiful clothes shine most when matched with beautiful skin& hair, and appropriate make up. :)

Beauty Resolution #1: Experiment with a new haircut AND hair color! I wouldn't want to chop my hair short again ala Beatles Cut years ago...So I'll try lots of layers and a nice shade for my crowning glory. Any suggestions please! :D

Beauty Resolution #2: Commit to a skincare regimen! I have to regularly exfoliate and moisturize with Kustie Scrub Jam products!

Hidden Treasure: Kustie Products in Festival Mall Watsons!

Check out their Facebook Page for a list of products and where to find them! I personally would love to try their Cucumber or Coconut products! :)

Cucumber ScrubJam contains natural fibers that reduces extra skin oil and helps remove dirt and impurities. Cucumber also has a cooling and refreshing effect on our skin.

Beauty Resolution #3: Take care of myself more! I'd like to go on a spa or have a body massage at least once every 2 months, for wellness sake. And of course, let's see if mapaninidigan ko to: SLEEP EARLY!

Beauty Resolution #4: Learn the basics on putting my own make up!

I had the chance to recently try my skillz on make up when I tried my new loot from L'Oreal Paris Philippines!

First to apply is the primer, wherein I tried out the new L'Oreal Base Magique which retails at p945. I tell you, I am no make up expert but I enjoyed applying this make up base as it transforms my not-so-kagandahan skin into "velvety touch, flawless finish"! (tagline of the product, hehe)

Seriously, after applying Base Magique evenly on my face, my skin is already a perfect canvass for my concealer, blush, eye shadow, etcetera. L'Oreal Base Magique can also be worn alone, as the product made my skin smooth and even--my first reaction was "parang nag powder lang!". Took photos after, but I'll share that later. ;)

The second challenge: Applying my own EYE make up!

As Tamems (my make up enthusiast friend) would constantly tell me whenever she preps me for blogger events: Eye make up is always the hardest to create. I think L'Oreal Open Eyes Pro helps a make up-newbie like me on step-by-step application of the eye shadow.

My Palette: I chose "Grey Harmony" para medyo basic black and white lang. See how "conservative" I am with make ups! Also available in Blue Harmony, Beige Harmony and Plum Harmony (P875)

The product comes with two applier tips, and a little mirror. :) Compact make up, indeed!

But what I love most about the L'Oreal Open Eyes Pro is the instructions at the back of the palette!
Noob-friendly make up, I was able to follow the easy-steps! Again, will share photos in a bit. :)

And lastly.......

Beauty Resolution #5: Wear LIPSTICK! I can be duwag when it comes to wearing lip colors especially on ordinary days. But my new L'Oreal Shiny Grapefruit just suits my taste--not too bold for everyday use! At least that's a start! :)

What are YOUR own Beauty Resolutions? :) I am really interested to know!
And so, as promised, here are my "made up" photos! Hah! Again, I am no make up expert (yet! haha!), but through these new fun make ups from L'Oreal Paris Philippines, how can I not try them out? :D Because with L'Oreal, we ladies are definitely worth it. *wink* ;)

Pa-sweet lang, haha:

Dumadrama, hehehe:

Nag enjoy naman ako sa kaka-vain pics, hahaha! Leaving you with this crazy collage! :D

  3. Amazing, Ana! Make sure you have a hardcopy of this list kasi baka makalimutan mo. :) You look darling!

    Re: hair cut. I feel that THIS or THIS might suit your face shape (minus the bangs on the 2nd pic; mas bagay sayo yung sideswept fringe). I just don't know if you are game for it. Gusto ko makita sa hair mo, may bulk sa likod. Feel ko bagay sayo :D
