A no-makeup makeup look is perhaps every Filipina's go-to. You could even call it our signature, it being our secret weapon to looking fresh despite our humid weather. That said, it only makes sense that our homegrown makeup brands should know this aesthetic by heart. And they do! As proof, we present all the local products we love for an easy, everyday face:
