Make-up for TV Tutorial

As I mentioned in one of my previous posts, I am now a TV Host! :) If you were not able to read it: Click here

I am still in cloud nine as of writing this 'coz it was just a dream of mine to see myself in TV and now it's fricking happening! :) Before I get too emotional, let me share to you the makeup routine I do every time we have shoot. :)

1. Prepare skin

Before I do my makeup routine, I make sure to prep my skin properly. I clean, tone and moisturize. :) Don't worry, I'll have my updated skin routine uploaded here on my blog. For now, here's my Morning Skincare Routine :)

2. Primer


This is the cheapest and yet most effective makeup primer available in the market. It does help control oil and keep the makeup products I used all day.

3. Foundation


After the base, I need to put Foundation. This will help cover some blemishes on face and even skin tone. I use Revlon Colorstay because it has a flawless finish and lightweight feel.

4. Blush


Yes. I am joining the bandwagon. HAHA. But this clay blush gives a pinkish natural glow on my cheeks. I highly recommend this for men too! :) No need for me to put powder blush, for its finish is already good on the camera. :)


CHEAPEST UKAY UKAY IN CAVITE! Versace For Only 10 Pesos!

I was an Ukay Ukay fan when I was in college. Aside from I save a lot of money, there's always thrill finding for branded and fashionable items. It was just this month when I saw this certain thrift shop selling, I believe the cheapest offer I've ever encountered when it comes to Ukay Ukay. I was pleased and decided to see if the post is true.

True to their words, ALL OF THE ITEMS HERE ARE FOR ONLY 10 PESOS!! WOW!! :) I didn't know where to start first, but one thing was for sure: I AM CHALLENGED! :)

I went there Saturday afternoon and the crowd is not that overwhelming. But prepare for drinks 'coz the place is really hot. Thankfully, I bought a liter of milk tea before coming to the shop. Hihi.

There are lot of choices to choose from but the items below got my attention. Since I also work as a University teacher, I always wear formal attire. So upon seeing these on the rack, I stayed there for almost hour and a half.


I am Now a TV Host! :)

It has always been a dream of mine to be be shown on National Television. I remembered the times I auditioned for different shows and commercials. I stopped trying after I was hired as a TV Director for ChinatownTV (IBC 13). I was contented and believed that I was meant to work off-cam. But as they say, you can never predict your future. Everyone I never expected it would come a time I would say this but I AM NOW A TV HOST! :) 

You can watch me as I host Music & Entertainment, Mondays to Fridays, 10 AM, 2 PM, 6 PM and 10 PM only on STV! :) 

What I like about our show is that we feature song and dance covers from artists. Somehow, just like myself that is starting in the industry, the program is also a venue for aspiring people to show and share their talents. :)  

For those of you who are asking what network I am into. Here it is:
STV is a mainstream digital channel which features social media contents or any worthwhile works or creations such as Do It Yourself videos, short films, vlogs, film and animation, tutorial, hobbies, entertainment, etc. It is available in ABS-CBN TV Plus and other digiboxes in the Philippines. :)

We are actually a subchannel of UNTV. Wish 107.5 is also under the same management. :) 

There you have it everyone! I do hope you support me in this endeavor. I know this is just the start. There are rooms for improvement and I will never get tired of growing. :) Let's never stop dreaming and achieving our goals. :)

If ever you catch the show, don't hesitate to take a photo or message me. I am open for critics. :)

EXTRA: Here's a video of mine hosting the show. :)
