These Are the Beauty Products to Stock Up on This May
The summer season isn't just the best time to take a break from school, it's the best time to go out on a crazy adventure not just for your trips and vacations with your barkada, but also when it comes to your beauty looks. Now that you've summer-proofed your beauty kits with the basic summer beauty essentials, it's time to add a whole lot of fun to your beauty looks from bright eyeshadows to a bold lip!
Bright, vibrant eyeshadows
Try: Eyeshadow X9: Tropic Cool Times Nine P2750, MAC Cosmetics
Blue, green, and yellow eyeshadows are a huge no-no in school, but now that school's out, there's absolutely nothing that's holding you back from trying out bolder eye trends. Ditch your safe browns and forever flattering mauves for an electric canary yellow shadow for a fearless summer look.
Try: Japanese Cherry Blossom Fragrance Mist P995, The Body Shop
Instead of relying on a heavy fragrance this summer season, opt for a light body mist instead! It'll get the job of keeping you fresh all day long while still maintaining the summer hint.
Try: Volum' Express The Hypercurl Mascara P199, Maybelline
We've heard it said before that you don't need to put on makeup when you're headed to the beach, but we all know that every girl could use a quick swipe of mascara before going anywhere. Make sure to swap your regular mascaras for a waterproof one before taking a dip, Candy Girls!
Try: Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation P700, L'Oreal
Whether you're heading for a summer adventure with your friends or just headed to the mall, it's no secret that the summer heat is already unbearable. Melt-proof your makeup with the help of a mattifying foundation and beat the sun at its own game without breaking a sweat.
Try: Dr. Belmeur Daily Repair Moisturizer P1050, The Face Shop
Regardless of whether it's the summer season or not, a beauty girl knows that a moisturizer is a huge must to achieve great skin. Now that the weather is extra hot, make sure that you have a heavy-duty moisturizer that will keep your skin moisturized and hydrated all summer long.
Try: Creamy Matte Lipstick by Color Sensational in Vibrant Violet P299, Maybelline
While it's no secret that a fresh, nude lip looks amazing against a natural tan, there's no better season than summer to go out on a limb and rock a bold, bright lip! We know you love your deep plums, but this May, opt for a bright purple for an edgy, but still perfect for the summer beauty look!

Hi! It's been so long since I planned to post my story in another platform aside from wattpad and now here I am, hoping that my story can be featured here.
My story is entitle "Who Are You," it's a tagalog-english teen fiction story so I hope, those filipinos who visit here can read my story!
WHO ARE YOU: PRELUDE
Sinungaling na ba ako kung sasabihin ko sa inyo ang pangalan ko? Hindi ako sure kung anong sasabihin kong pangalan ko pero may nagsasabi sa aking wag nalang magpakilala sa inyo.
May gusto lang naman akong itanong... Paano kung may makilala ka sa kasalukuyan na nagpapaalala sayo sa nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang nakilala mo sa kasalukuyan ay may tinatago pa lang sikreto na kahit siya mismo ay walang alam pero may kinalaman sa iyong nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang dalawang ito ay may koneksyon? Anong pipiliin mo? Ang nakilala mo sa nakaraan? O ang nagpakilala bilang ibang tao sa kasalukuyan? Past? Or Present?
There was this guy I dated for a while but things didn't turn out well. I was so into him that one night I can't stop thinking about him, I've decided to send his MOM a message on facebook confessing how much I like her son. I wish it ended there but no. I had to make it so emotional, lengthy and detailed like the drama queen I am. Luckily, it went to message request so I'm hoping she hasn't really read it yet. Up until this day it makes me cringe whenever I think about it but hey, whenever it pops in my mind I make myself laugh too so thank you self for being unbelievably shameless and brave when it comes to love. I may age faster because I have made a lot of cringe-worthy moments that I constantly make faces out of embarrassment just reflecting on my antics but I know I've made more hilarious memories than what ifs and somehow that makes the disappointments feel more like assurances that I have gave it my all and I have lived as honest (maybe a little to honest) as I could. #ItsOnlyNatural #CanBnatural
I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
