TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF, WHERE YOU LIVE AND HOW YOUR MAKEUP LOOK DEFINES YOU…
My name is Shannon. I was raised in the Philippines and I’m currently living in California. Make Up makes me appreciate my femininity. It gives a little boost to my self-confidence. It is no secret that every girl wants to get dolled up at least once in a while; some more often than others (e.g. me). My sister and I have always been sharing our own little beauty tricks and discoveries with each other; and we’re more than happy to share them with you as well. We’re here for you!
FOUNDATION SHADESMAC NC35 Studio Sculpt Foundation
MAC NC35 Lightful Face Powder
NYX SMF 09 Tan
Loreal BB Cream Medium
MOST IMPORTANT TOOL
My MAC 182 Brush. I do not leave the house without at least a layer of powder on my face, which I apply with my MAC 182. So basically I use this brush on a daily basis.
FAVOURITE MAC PRODUCT
I would have to say my MAC Select Moisturecover Concealer. This product is simply irreplaceable. Concealer has been very essential to me, now that I’m swamped with a lot work. And this particular one does its job right. I can literally sleep at the crack of dawn and still look presentable the next day, thanks to this baby and the miracle it does to my eyebags.
THE FIRST MAKEUP PRODUCT YOU FELL IN LOVE WITH
My sister and I have actually grown up with makeup because of all the dance recitals we’ve had. Eyeshadow was my favorite part of the whole routine. We were in MAC store in Hong Kong when I saw my first makeup love, MAC Amberlights eyeshadow. I was so attracted to the shimmery bronze color. This ended up being the first MAC product (and make up product in general) I owned, thanks to my mom and sister.
FAVOURITE FACIAL FEATURE
My cheekbones. I think it gives a lot more definition to my face.
IF YOU WERE RUSHING TO YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE IN THE WORLD WITH FIVE MINUTES TO PACK, WHICH THREE TOOLS OR PRODUCTS WOULD YOU GRAB? ALSO, WHERE ARE YOU GOING?
Concealer, Foundation, and Lip Stain. These are the three products I use on a daily basis. And I would probably go to beautiful Italy.
PRODUCT EVERY BOY OR GIRL SHOULD CARRY IN HIS OR HER BAG
I think everyone should have a bottle of water and a bottle of lotion in their bag. Hydration is important people! Water hydrates your body and lotion hydrates your skin.
FIRST MAKEUP MEMORY
I’m pretty sure I’ve been made up before this, but my first memory would have to be when I played young Cosette in an adaptation of Les Miserables. I remember my mom putting make up on me, my aunt curling my hair with a curling iron, and me getting annoyed at how long it took for the both of them! (Well, it seemed like a long time when I was a kid)
TOP SKINCARE TIP AND WHAT PRODUCTS YOU USE
My top skincare tip would be to keep good hygiene. I wash my face twice a day (once in the morning and once at night) with Neutrogena Deep Clean long last shine control cleanser/mask.
