Night Time Skin Care Routine

This is my 'glycolic acid' night time skin care routine. The products used are from the brand Pixi by Petra. The active ingredient is 5% glycolic acid.

Glycolic acid is an AHA which is a chemical exfoliant. This helps in removing impurities as well as sloughing off the dead skin cells.
This video demonstrates how I use the products and also my feedback on each item.
Hope you enjoy watching =) Thank you!

Pet Friendly Hotel in Tagaytay

This is a room and hotel tour of Eco Hotel Tagaytay. We spent our wedding anniversary in Tagaytay and we chose this hotel because of the price and location. It is also an eco-friendly and pet-friendly hotel. Guests are welcome to bring along their pets. They also have a resident dog named Blue . We enjoyed our stay here. And did I mention guests get to have a complimentary glass of wine each night? =) This is NOT a sponsored video.

Mother's Day Makeup Tutorial

  It's been a year since I last posted here.  I've been quite busy plus got some pretty rough months last year that I never got the chance to blog or at least got inspired to do something wonderful.

  Anyway, I'm trying to get my regular self back and found it quite timely as it is Mother's Day this weekend.  My Mom loves getting her makeup done especially by me =)  And we filmed a makeup tutorial in celebration of this special occasion.  Please give my video a thumbs up, subscribe to my YouTube channel and share the love and/or my video  =)  

  Read on to see the list of products used in this video.

  P.S. I am a freelance hair and makeup artist based in Metro Manila, Philippines.  For inquiries, please send me an email at

Simple Makeup for a Beauty Portrait

  Had a fun beauty portrait session with my youngest sister.  I did a simple makeup on her and just had her hair on a low ponytail.  This was a one-light setup using a large continuous LED light octagonal softbox and a reflector.  We chose a blank wall in our living room for the background.  Good thing it is white although the paint is not matte.  But it's okay, it adds a bit of texture and interest to the image.

  Read on to see how the images turned out. =)

Beauty Stash Show and Tell: Brush Cleaners

  Hi there =)  For today's post, I decided to do a quick video on the different brush cleaners that I use.  I got a couple that I take with me during gigs to allow for quick cleaning in between clients.  And the other two are more for deep cleaning my brushes at home.  The first two brush cleaners are very effective in cleaning and disinfecting my brushes.  However, I prefer to deep clean with castile soaps to restore the softness of my brushes.  

For more information on the products featured please read on.
