1st Blog Giveaway Winners

2 Jul

And the WINNER for my blog giveaway is (drum roll) SOFIA PEREZ. 🙂 Congratulations, Sofia. I will send you an email about the things I need to ship the items. 🙂 Since Sofia isn’t a blogger, Darleen Atienza is going to get the Shu Uemura falsies. You may wonder why she got the falsies even if she didn’t placed her Twitter, Bloglovin’, and Email details but she sent an email to me about them. 🙂

Last Day!

30 Jun

Okay, so today’s the last day for my blog giveaway. Only 6 joined as of now. 😦 Which means, the giveaway isn’t successful. 😦 Remember, I’m gonna do more giveaways if a lot of people would join. 🙂 It’s never too late, JOIN NOW! 🙂 Just browse through my old blog posts and you would see my post about the giveaway. 🙂

Oh My DIY: Lip Smoothie

21 Jun

Dry + cracked lips ruin how lipstick looks. And because of recycled air, flying, dehydration and just life, unfortunately all of us are victims! So I’m sharing exactly what I have my clients do before I apply their makeup. All you need is a disposable mascara wand (or toothbrush if you don’t have one), lip balm and a tissue.

1. Dip the wand into the balm to pick up a decent amount onto the bristles then apply it directly on your lips (Just like in the image, I started with my bottom lip).
2. Scrub back and forth, up and down and in small circular motions in the same fashion you would brush your teeth. Really work on the flaky areas until the loose skin gently breaks off.
3. Wrap a tissue around your finger and remove any flaky residue.

That’s it! If you want to stay on top of it and keep your lips polished and crack-free all year round, every time you brush your teeth, before you’re done, brush your lips with your toothbrush as well.

PLEASE DON’T FORGET TO JOIN MY GIVEAWAY, INTERNATIONAL READERS ARE WELCOME BUT YOU NEED TO SHOULDER THE SHIPPING FEE (IT’S STILL WORTH IT TO JOIN THOUGH). THANK YOU! https://ohthoseredstilettos.wordpress.com/2012/06/14/1st-blog-giveaway/

Very Berry!

1 Jun

For those of you concerned about what chemicals we’re putting in and on our bodies, you can’t get more natural than this homemade berry lip stain! I just totally love it because it adds the perfect “just-bitten” hint of color to fake that Snow White luscious lip!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 Blackberries (for their bright berry color)
  • 1 Raspberry (to get the feminine pink color)
  • 3 Pomegranate Seeds (to achieve the vibrant red color)
  • 1/2 teaspoon edible oil (Extra Virgin Olive Oil is good to use!)
  •  A small bowl + spoon (or mortar + pestle if you have)
  • Fork or sifter to drain
  • A small 5-gram Pot/Jar with screw top from any craft store

STEPS:

  1. Mash the blackberries and raspberry in the bowl thoroughly with the back of your spoon.
  2. Add the pomegranate juice into the mixture by individually squeezing them between your thumb and index fingers over the bowl.
  3. Pour the olive oil into the bowl and stir everything together with your spoon.
  4. Finish by draining the liquid from the mixture into your small portable jar.

HOW TO APPLY: Use your fingers, a lip brush or a Q-tip. It’ll only be good for a few days so refrigerate it for it to last longer. Have fun with it and also try different fruits! You can play with the ratios of each fruit to customize your desired shade but you’ll get the most color payoff from the blackberries.

What happened?

26 May

Okay. I’m sad right now. Really, really sad. I don’t know what happened. My blog is not in the Top 500 list anymore. Can you help me bring it back to the Top 500 list and make its rank go higher and higher? *pretty please* It would really mean a lot if you can. 🙂 Thanks! Oh, and just to remind you about my blog giveaway, the month’s about to end and my blog’s not in the Top 500 list nor in the Top 100 list. Remember, I WOULD ONLY GIVE OUT THE WET AND WILD MAKE-UP TRAINCASE IF MY BLOG IS GOING TO BE IN THE TOP 100 LIST. If my blog can’t reach it to the Top 100, then I’m just gonna give out a Naked 2 eyeshadow palette.

For my first blog giveaway!

20 May

Right now, I am arranging my first blog giveaway. I just want to give you a sneak peek on what to expect in this upcoming giveaway. I’m going to give out a Naked 2 palette from Urban Decay. So here’s the thing: If you could make my blog included in the TOP 100 list of topblogs.com.ph before the month of May ends, I’m also gonna give out a Wet and Wild makeup kit! Just make my blog in the Top 100 list, then you could join the giveaway, just make sure, you’re a resident in the Philippines so that I could ship the item/s to you! ARE YOU READY?

NOTE: If I’m going to give out the Wet and Wild makeup kit, there would be 2 winners.
