Here are the Candy eds basic beauty essentials:

mimi.jpg It’s a three-way tie between SPF, eyelash curler, and lip balm/gloss, then I’m all set to face the world! —Mimi, Managing Editor
angel.jpg Lip and Cheek Tint from The Body Shop. I hardly wear makeup and I remember back in college, whenever I would put some of that on, someone would always tell me, 'Blooming ka!' It never fails. Haha! Angel, Assistant Features Editor
marla.jpg A hot oil treatment once a month, especially since I subject my poor tresses to so much torture (i.e., chemicals, coloring, blow-drying). Allow-Me-to-Gloat-Trivia: I won Best Hair in college (Yes, we actually had that award, haha!). Marla, Editorial Assistant
macy.jpg I never used to put anything on my face but I've realized that, ahem, I am getting older. :P Everyday, I use Neutrogena Moisturizer on my face. And on some days, I put Pretty When Pinched from Bench on my cheeks. I get that flushed look without looking too made up! I love it! —Macy, Web and Mobile Producer
roch.jpg I always use Skin Focus Face Illuminator from The Body Shop. It's like a tinted moisturizer that makes my face glow instantly. I also love putting on L'oreal Colour Juice Lip Gloss in Capucine coz it makes my lips look yummy hehe! :D —Roch, Web and Mobile Producer
