Ace that selfie!

The Philippines is known for a lot of things like the admirable hospitality of the Filipinos, the undying support we have for each other, and of course, for being the selfie capital of the world. To make sure that your selfie game is always always on point, we're listing down the different makeup rules you need to know and follow to ace that selfie with ease!

Don't forget to prime. If you're just heading to school, or to the mall, it's pretty tempting to just skip the primer and go straight for the BB Cream or the foundation. But if you're planning on taking a selfie at any time of the day, primer is a definite must to make sure that your makeup lasts throughout the day.

Dont line your entire lid. After you've mastered the cat eye flick, lining your lids is pretty fun to do! But to achieve a picture perfect selfie, lining your entire lid can make your eyes look smaller than it really is! Instead, line only from the center of your lid to the outer corners of your eye, or for a trendier and much easier to do liner trick, just create a winged effect on the edge of your lids.

Do add more. If IRL less is more, when it comes to selfies and photographs you need to add more color to your eyes, lips, and cheeks to avoid looking washed out, or too pale in the photos. A bold red lip and strong eye game combo usually does the trick!

Do contour and highlight, but blend, blend, blend. As Juan Sarte shared with us before, you need to contour to make the face come alive in the photos. So play with shadows and highlights to create a picture perfect beauty look, but don't forget to blend well, or the camera might capture your unblended contour, too! Yikes!

Do have fun! Very much like fashion, selfies are a great way to show off your personality and to just have fun while showing off your best angles!

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.

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?
