Hair Makeover 2013
I seriously needed a hair makeover. Last time I visited the Hairshaft Salon at The Podium was just before Big Bang’s concert last October. That was like half a year ago. WTF. My hair was up until the small of my back already, rather damaged, faded and is overall not very healthy. I particulary waited until my Cebu-Bohol trip was done before I scheduled a hair makeover session with my awesome stylist (since April 2010), Miguel! [click to enlarge photos]
This was what I looked like prior to the session. Faded hair was faded.
I didn’t really know what I wanted except that I wanted a lighter, browner color and that I wanted to look like Lee Hyori (I showed him her photos). LOL. The team (yes, team because many people will work on your hair) first colored my roots and after rinsing it off, he proceeded to cut my hair. And boy, did he chop off a lot! Sorry, I didn’t get to take photos of that. After the haircut, Migs asked his assistants to get some foil for my highlights.
Top: Five people were literally working on my hair. ; Bottom: Closer look at the foil. Because why not, right??
You see, when I ask Miguel for a certain color, he doesn’t just get a bottle of dye and put it on my hair. He uses as much as three different shades to achieve the over-all look so there will be “movement” and the colors will come alive. Though it takes about 4-5 hours, the results are always… first class.
Hey guys! I know I normally fail in all things girly and shit but I was gonna do my own makeup for the Park Shin Hye press conference and I thought I’d share with you guys how I did it. Simple and Easy Asian Makeup!!! This isn’t really a “tutorial” but if you learned something, then hurrah! I think, more than anything, what this just proves is that I look like crap without the help of makeup (but I don’t hate my self for that or anything).
Abracadabraaaa! DAFUZ IS WRONG WITH MY “BEFORE” FACE?!?!
Wanna know how I did it? Watch the video after the jump!
I am very stingy and I’m in love with all things budget – airlines and hotels, clothes, gadgets and yes, makeup. I love cheap makeup! When I bought my first set of makeup when I was a segment host for this show on channel 5, I thought I had to buy Max Factor because well, it’s the “makeup of the makeup artists”. LOL whattastupid kid. I ended up spending a chunk of my talent fee and that shit didn’t even blend well on my face with my complexion.
Anyway, I know many of my readers are teens who have limited allowance so let me share with you the products that I legitly use, which are not only cheap but are very good as well.
1. LIPSTICK – BYS Lipstick Php 229
Cheap makeup =/= horrible or below avarage quality.
I just recently learned about BYS, an Australian brand through my friend, Ria Jose and my gazzz, I’m in love with this brand already! I bought my first shade just over a week ago (Sassy Salmon ‘coz I’m a Sassy Girl like that) and I’ve been wearing it daily ever since! BYS lipsticks are kinda like MAC or NARS except they’re about 80% cheaper! I looove and am not afraid of colors and their shades are uguhuguhuguh! Surprisingly, their lipstick lasts longer than I had expected so high five for that, BYS chemists! I have yet to try other BYS products though…
2. LIQUID EYELINER – Wet n Wild Mega Liner Php 299
Smudge-proof, unless of course, you cry (or host an event with no ventilation *coughDKFCFiestacough*)…
Been using this product since 2009. That’s right! Since I began wearing liquid liner. I never changed products because this one works sooo well on me! I mean, I’ve tried other Asian and Western brands, especially when I have my makeup done by other makeup artists by naaaah, this thing’s a gem *cuddles Mega Liner*!
