You don’t need a reason to wear makeup. As long as you want to wear it and it makes you feel good, you go put on that favorite lipstick.
It could just be running errands (tinted moisturizer with sunscreen is a godsend) or a busy day in the office, doing the dirty work (concealer hides the sleepless nights and stress eating), you go wear what you need. It could also be just a lunch out with the family, like what Gabs Gibbs did on her recent trip with her family.
With the cute interiors to match, I got mod vibes from Gabs with her thick eyebrows and popping lip color. If you’re like me who’s hoping to copy it soon, here are some products that can help you out.
MAC Next to Nothing Face Color
Think: a decent coverage foundation that feels like a BB cream and gives that dewy, no-makeup look. That’s what Allure says this foundation can do which is why I think this is best for that casual day out. Available at Glorietta 3.
Benefit Bo-ing Hydrating Concealer
To keep your skin healthy while hiding away those temporary imperfections, use this concealer with skincare benefits. This concealer has a moisturizing outer coat packed with Vitamin E and apple seed extract to keep skin hydrated for six hours. Available at SM Megamall.
BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Luminous Blush
Since you’re not going all out, skip the highlighter and go for a shimmery blush. Don’t be scared! With a light hand, you can blend it in such a way that you look like have a healthy glow rather than a glittery mess. Think of how you look after a short walk without the sweat. Available via SephoraPH.
Clinique Just Browsing Brush-On Styling Mousse
Personally, I’m a fan of brush-on formulas for brows. Given their spoolie tip, you get to do two things in one swoop. You brush your lashes in places, while thickening them through the tint.This one from Clinique feature a small tip so you can really finess those brows into the shape and thickness you want easily. It’s when you don’t want to spend too much time drawing on your brows so you can get to eating even early. Available at SM City North EDSA.
Make Up Forever Aqua Rouge Waterproof Liquid Lip
It’s not a gimmick. Without the gloss overlay of this liquid lipstick, I find this stays on my lips even if I headed straight to the buffet table. Still the gloss makes this also verstaile in case you want to change your matte lip quickly with a juicy effect. To get the color similar to what Gabs is wearing, your best bet is either Coral or Bright Orange, depending on your skin tone. Available at Glorietta 3.
