6 Beauty Items We Love for the Month of January
2017 is finally upon us and you know what that means, Candy Girls! It's time to bring out the bigger, better, and bolder version of yourself starting by taking your beauty game to the next level! And what better way is there to up the ante of your beauty looks than by making sure that your kikay kit is trusty and full of beauty goodies you can always rely on. So scroll down and check out these amazing beauty finds that made our hearts skip a beat this January!
Pore minimizing makeup
A lot of girls love to go out of their houses minus the foundation, but doesn't do so because they are conscious about their pores. But you don't have to be anymore, Candy Girls! Choose a lightweight product that is still long-wear, boasts of intense coverage, and minimizes the appearance of pores at the same time!
We get it, every girl wants to score bold brows like Cara Delevingne. But instead of splurging your month's worth of allowance on a brow palette, opt for an eyebrow serum! That way, you'll be able to achieve the full, thick brows that you want—for good.
Versatile eye shadow palettes
Instead of buying different shadow pots or splurging on a palette with slightly different shades, choose an eye shadow palette that has all the colors that you need to create different beauty looks!
This year, opt for a fresh citrus fragrance for a feminine scent that screams fun, but always chic.
There's no doubt that swiping on a different shade of lipstick never fails to give a girl just the right amount of extra confidence. But some lippies are drying and can cause harm to your lips, too! Choose a lippie that has Castor seed oil and vitamin E to make sure that your lip game is strong and equally healthy.
To blot off excess oils, some girls use a tissue paper or powder their noses frequently. But using tissues to wipe off excess oil can move your makeup and powdering your nose too much can cause your makeup to look cakey, too! Instead, use an oil-blotting stick and lightly apply it on your shiny zones to control unnecessary shine.

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song
By: CJ Reyno
Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?
Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.
You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.
As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”
I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
Here's a fan art that I made for Lee Joo Young of Itaewon class! I've been making digital illustration since last year and I'm happy that I was able to see my improvements. I'm also happy to see people's reactions and support for my craft even though all of it are made through my phone (adobe illustrator) only ????. You don't actually have to use expensive or complicated medium as long as you know how to be creative and like what you're doing, then you can do it. ????
