Beauty Kit for Every Budget: Under P1000
Building your own beauty kit is definitely no easy feat. Aside from choosing the products that you want, choosing the products that your skin actually needs is just as important, too!

And get this, Candy Girls, you don't have to spend over a thousand pesos for this loot!
A lot of girls tend to skip the primer because they think that it's a makeup step you can simply do without. But if you want your makeup to last you the whole day, a primer is a huge must! Plus, a lot of primers help create a poreless finish just like this Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Smoother.

Need light coverage without breaking the bank? Opt for a classic tinted moisturizer! When choosing a tinted cream, pick one that''s lightweight, but still boasts of heavy coverage. Make sure to choose one that's hydrating enough so as not to suffocate your skin, too!

One common misconception about the brows is that you need a ton of products to score great kilay. While made-up brows are pretty to look at, nothing beats well-groomed arches! Instead of splurging on brow pencils, mascaras, and palettes, opt for a brush instead!

When the budget is tight, it's important to look for multipurpose products that don't scrimp on quality. Choose a creamy lip color that will easily finish your look and can create a natural, healthy flush on your cheeks, too just like this Suesh Choose Your Own Palette Lip Color Pots.

Outdoors Danielle Flestado @artdkf | May 1, 2020 "I miss the outside world. The last time I went outside of our house was on my birthday. We just bought coffee across our village and went back home immediately. This painting made me feel that I'm in a field, just appreciating the beauty of God's creation. Can you imagine the green grass and pink flowers?"
When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.
You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.
You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
I always thought of life, like a bead where each piece makes it worth sewing together with other piece of beads to make a stronger bond and to create a beautiful result. Today, how do we bond well with different people especially this difficult time? As this day challenges us to a new normal, may we continue to bead along positively with our life.
