I can't remember my first encounter with this unibrow Mexican painter, but Frida Kahlo was part of one of my favorite college subjects (Art Appreciation class, yup may subject kaming ganun sa journ! :D). The class watched the movie of her life story starring Salma Hayek, and naalala ko the boys were aligaga at mashado atang maraming wild scenes si Frida, hahaha lurky!

I loved Frida as an artist. I love her style din, parang palagi shang colorful and flamboyant. Her works are mostly self-portraits na madadaig pa ang Instagram page ng pinaka adik mag selfie mong friend. Although mesa-vain, Frida actually blossomed as an artist not just after dropping her whole medicine-career-dreams (lupet!), but nung na-immobile sha for several months because of an accident. Epitome nga naman ng isang tortured artist! To quote her: "I paint myself because I am so often alone and because I am the subject I know best." (hashtag selfie hehe joke)
Anyhooo... Wore this nagpapaka-artist look last Friday when I attended the Stila event in Shangrila Mall. I LOVE the new mukap, but I especially adore (as in napapanaginipan levels, hehe) their lipchook...Lalo the VIOLET! :) Will post more on their new palettes for the season in a separate entry! :)
Tried the Stila eyebrow pencil, and almost created a unibrow look pero baka di bagay nyuk nyuk. ;p
After playing with the makeup, Sarah and I left Rustans for a coffee break and catch up. First time to try DOME--a cafe and restaurant in Shang. Had iced coffee kahit umuulan (ang init parin kasi! :p)
Dahil recommended ni Sarah, I tried Dome's killmenow Chocolate Cake. ANG SARAP! AT ANG TAMIS at caramelly (lol)! Kikiligin pati si my fellow sweet-tooth Christine Liwag! ;P Hahaha!

And Sarah, busy mag IG, hehehe:

I also accompanied Sarah back in Rustans for her blog collab with her favorite Laura Mercier. Ako ang kanwaring photog niya, hehehe, documenting every step during her makeup session. We also tried the Instagram video for the eyeshadow blending part, lalang ang hightetch!
Meanwhile, I also browsed the Laura Mercier's counter for a violet lipstick! ;p Hindi halata sa photo but this one is a nice dark shade called Laura Mercier Merlot:
Wearing the Laura Mercier Merlot lipchook:
Sarah looks great with the Laura Mercier makeover (gypsy vibe!) but ang galing ko coz wala akong photos sa cam ko (used her SLR hehe). We headed to her Cheap Monday ganap naman afterwards...where she picked pairs of jeans for participating as one of their canvass bag artist bloggers. :)
Cute din nitong belt, also available in Bauhaus:
