Julia Montes for Freshlook + My Eye Story


Usapang mata.

First kong nafeel na cool-kid ka pag nakaglasses ka nung Grade 3 or 4 ako. Yung mga pop kids ng batch, ilan dun biglang naka salamin. Naisip ko, pano ba ako bibilhan ni mom ng ganyan? Pano ba lumalabo ang mata? Hahaha.

Grade 5 ko naman nafeel na shemay malabo na nga ang mata ko! Nauna mag glasses sa akin yung ate ko, so ang dali sakin sabihin kay mommy, "Mooom mukang malabo nadin mata ko."


Grade 2, and ang awkward ko na sa height ko na nun. One of the tall girls sa class, and parati akong pinapasuot ni mom ng little sunflower headband. Haha!

True enough, grade5 din nung una akong nagka prescription glasses. 2.25 both eyes. Near sighted. Ibig sabihin hanggang one big step lang na layo ang kaya kong makita ng malinaw. Lumayo ka pa ng konti, blurry na.

Third year high school ako unang sumubok ng contact lenses. Opposite ng grade school, sa high school di na mashado batayan ng coolness kung naka glasses ka (or naka braces, hehe). Napasubok ako mag contacts in preparation for our prom. Still, 2.25 naman grado ko, both eyes.

High school, RETRO ang theme ng class isang araw. Pero totoong glasses ko yan noon. Feeling hippie kasi ako, hehehe.

Fourth year high school. Eto yung di na kelangan ng glasses para sabihing cool, haha.


Fourth year college na ako nag try mag colored contact lenses. Bilang wala namang rules sa aming university book na nagbabawal sa green eyes, may mga kaklase akong purple ang mata, may nag red (pero one day lang, di naulit, haha), at ako naman--favorite ko yung gray at brown (salitan). 2.25 parin. Nakakalaki sha ng eyes!

Dahil sa grade school concept of cool (hehe), hanggang ngayon tuloy ang labo ng mata ko. Pagkagising na pagkagising, suot kagad ng glasses. Eto ang favorite "house glasses" ko kasi malaki sha so di nakakahilo (2.25 parin ang grade). Minsan nagagamit ko din sha pamporma for Koreana looks hehe, pero sa totoo lang nirerest ko lang eyes ko sa contacts.

I also use optical shop-bought colored lenses. Favorite ko yung brown talaga, palagi sinasabi ni Catch parang natural lang. 

I attended the Freshlook Contact Lens event last week and learned  the diff of using yung colored contacts nila vs colored contacts na madalas natin nabibili sa online stores. Mas makakahinga pala ang eyes with optical shop-bought lenses. Mas prescribed by eye doctors kasi even yung color niya hindi lang basta daw prinint. So safe and non-drying sha.

Another thing is, I always opt for the pang 3 months na contacts para madaliang pag palit parin. Learned kasi before na mas hygienic daw to, pero through this event, mas recommended parin daw yung dailies, as in after using for one day, tapon kagad. Mas convenient nga yun, wala nang linis linis, hehe.

Attentive attendees!

Cute segment! One eye lang ang naka eye-makeup! Hehe! To see the difference ng walang contacts and makeup sa meron na.

And then finally, they introduced to us the new ambassador of Freshlook Dailies Illuminate!

Rising star Julia Montes is the first local endorser of Freshlook! Super bagay, her eyes are super beautiful and expressive in person.



Love the dress!!!


Love the shoes too! Hehe.

All eyes on the star:

Julia Montes shared that she has been using Freshlook for a long time already. She considers the color of the lenses bago niya gamitin to. With the Freshlook Dailies Illuminate, you can choose from Jet Black or Rich Brown. Julia prefers the Rich Brown for a more natural effect sa eyes niya.



I think the best thing about Freshlook Dailies Illuminate is that they are guaranteed safe to use, convenient, and also beautifying sha in a way na mas nakakaemphasize sha ng eyes, blending with your eye color naturally--and minus the risks of using other brands.


Freshlook Illuminate is available at P650.00 for a box of 5 pairs in all leading optical clinics. For more info and updates, follow the Freshlook Girl on Twitter!

  2. OMG, Ana, anong batch ka sa St. Scholastica's College, Manila? Nag-SSC din ako from Prep to Grade 3 eh! Yung sa first photo mo, may familiar faces, pero I couldn't make their names out. If it helps, batchmates ko sina Chyrs Anne "C.A." Rosalejos and Ma. Beatriz Victoria "Iyay" Mandanas. :o
