My usual makeup ritual has been changed by the intense Manila heat. I reach for makeup that acts as sun forcefields, including industrial-strength blush, glossy lips, and fruity scents. I'm also into glittery digits (foolproof nail art!). I just wish there was a beauty product out there that acted like airconditioning wherever I go.
My skincare regimen hasn't changed though; my favorite look is still dewy and bright. I hoard everything that says moisturizing and brightening on the bottle, and I also believe that dewy skin is synonymous to a youthful glow, hence the obsession. Another thing: You have to try using cleansing oils to wash your face. Lately, washing my face has been a delight (yes you read that right—I'm a beauty girl, shoot me!). I love when I massage cleansing oil and my skin is free from dirt and makeup AT THE SAME TIME when I rinse. I wish I'd done it this way years before.
