Boracay Trip 2019

It took my sister and her family 5 years to go back here in the Philippines. That's why when she asked if we wanted to go to Boracay with them, we didn't hesitate since we wanted to see the "New Boracay" after it was rehabilitated. Check out the video of our entire Boracay trip here:

We went there 2 days ahead of our companions since we wanted to spend our weekend at the beach already. The first hotel that we booked was Boracay Holiday Beach Resort. It's just beside Azalea Hotel in Station 2 and it will take around 3-5 minutes walk to the beach. We chose it because it as a big pool and one of the most affordable hotels in Boracay. You will really get the value of your money.

The weekend was windy but sunny. We had a great time at the beach. In Station 2, there's really no drastic change there except for the New Boracay rules. A number of police are roaming around to ensure that all the people and tourists are abiding

After 2 nights, we transferred to Jony's Beach Resort in Station 1 because that's the hotel my sister booked for us. It's a nicer hotel but more expensive. 

In Station 1, we noticed that most establishments that were there during our last visit in Boracay were gone and most became smaller. A lot of constructions are still on-going too.

It also started to rain hard so the roads became muddy. We also were not able to go out much so we did a lot of food trips for 2 days. 

If there are still on-going constuctions in Station 1, I'd prefer to stay in Station 2 or 3 on my next visit.

Check out my video for all the food trips we did.....ahhh we had a lot! And that's what I'm missing right now. I want to go back to Boracay just for the food.

Fashion 21 Two-Way Cake Foundations

Ladies, it's a must that we use skin care daily especially when you're out all day. But sometimes putting layers of skin care and makeup can be a bit tedious when you're always in a rush. That's why having skin care ingredients on the makeup we are using is always a good idea for me.

Let me share with you some of the foundations I've been trying this month from Fashion 21. They're all two-way cake, meaning you may opt to apply it wet or dry depending on the finish you want to achieve. 

To achieve a full long-lasting coverage, use the wet application. Do this by dabbing some product on the sponge then spray a bit of water on it then apply on the face. But if you want a more natural, skin-like finish with a bit of coverage, dry application it is! For more coverage, use the sponge. But if you want it more subtle, use your face brush to apply the foundation.

I have their four variants of two-way cake foundations:

Fashion 21 Two-way Cake Foundation SPF35+ with  Tea Tree Oil. Use this if you have sensitive skin as it protects your face from the sun and the tea tree oil has healing properties so it's best in times when you're breaking out.

Fashion 21 Two-way Cake Foundation SPF35+. If you want your makeup to have sun protection only.

Fashion 21 Two-way Cake Foundation SPF35+ with Papaya Extract. Makeup with sun protection and whitening properties yeah!

Fashion 21 Two-way Cake Foundation SPF35+ with Milk Moisturizer. For those who have dry skin, this one is for you. It keeps your face moisturized without making your face oily.

I've been using the Fashion 21 Two-way Cake Foundation SPF35+ with Milk Moisturizer for two weeks now and it has been good so far. Use it alone, it gives me instant freshness and flawless skin. I also sometimes use it as a setting powder on my liquid foundation if I want to cover all my freckles and marks. All I can say for now is that it's a very good and affordable foundation!

Sharing you some of my photos with Fashion21 foundation on :)

My New Makeup Bag

Being a makeup artist is not an easy profession. Well at least for me :) It's not glamorous or anything extravagant. I sometimes have to take long drives, work for long hours and carry heavy loads of makeup to a location. 

That's why I keep on thinking of ways to make it less complicated for me. I recently purchased this shock proof 2 layer makeup bag and I find it so perfect if I'm only doing 1 head or two and if there's no elevator on the location or the work involves a lot of walking and lifting haha. Love this!

This makeup bag has 2 layers. 

When you open the first one, It has a place for brushes and large zipper pocket where I place my cleaning tools like alcohol, tissue and some of my palettes.

It comes with 2 straps which you can place to make it a shoulder bag or a backpack. For me, it's easier to carry as a backpack as I don't feel the weight of all my makeups this way.

This is the second layer. It has brush holders with cover and several interchangeable compartments. Love this because it's easier to locate the makeup that I need this way.

It also has a medium sized zipper pocket at the side where I put my favorite palettes also.

And that's it! I hope I gave detailed information about this very useful makeup bag. I bought this for P1400 from someone on our Makeup Artist Group on Facebook but you may purchase this at Suesh.
