Le bag and le make up

I hate bringing around tons of stuff and my shoulders tend to hurt easily so I don't like bringing around a huge bag. I have a couple of designer bags which I use from time to time but I'm going to show you guys my EVERYDAY bag. Its just a simple sling bag that fits all the basic stuff I need. 

Forever 21 leather sling bag

Ralph Lauren Polo 1 for Women, Ray-ban Sunglasses, MAC Cosmetics Powder
YSL Patent Wallet, Clinique Chubby Stick in Watermelon, Salinase and keys

I have to wear make up all the time for taping, trust me I have a little suitcase worth of make up but in "real life" I'm not really a big make up fan. I mean I love it and all but I just choose not to wear a lot or sometimes close to none make up. Wala akong paki if may eye bags ako or kita pimples ko ok lang yun I'd rather everyone see my imperfections than me looking like I ate crayons and its all seeping through my skin. Hihihihi.

Its always good to have your basics, you need concealer to cover up unwanted blemishes and powder to go on top of your concealer, the trick to buying powder is that when you apply it you make sure its the same color as your neck cause you don't want to look like a geisha. By applying blush to just the apple of your cheeks you get this fresh look and then top it all off with translucent powder so your make up sets. Also, when buying eye shadow palettes make sure you get one with colors that you are sure you will use or else sayang lang.

I'm not really a fan of lipstick because I always lick and bite my lips so it usually wears off or goes on to my teeth (gross) and I hate it when it fades, meron lang sa corners of my lips but the inner part has no lipstick on it. My lips also tend to dry really easily so I've found a couple of lipsticks that go perfect for all my first world problems! When I buy lipstick nowadays I always test them to see if it suits my skin color and I make sure that they are always the type of lipsticks that have moisturizers. Look good and feel good!

MAC Studio Fix Lash, MAC Brow Set in GirlBoy, NARS eyeliner in nude, Prestige brow pen

If you're the type of girl who hates wearing falsies, like me, then this is the perfect mascara for you. I swear when I wear this my eyelashes look so fake but so real (anoraw), most people think its a downer when mascara isn't waterproof but I'm quite the opposite, I HATE waterproof mascara, its so hard to take off so I like this one. Mehehehe. I have really dark and thick eyebrows so I don't really need to fill them in anymore with a pencil so I just run this GirlBoy gel through 'em and POWWWW artista eyebrows ka teh. Yan ang sikreto. White eyeliner is so out and nude eyeliner is the new thing. Simple pimple.

Blush brush from Forever21, MAC Cosmetics fluff brush, pambunot hahaha, eyelash curler, Laura Mercier sponge (?)

If you're a clean freak then by all means use your hands to apply your make up but if not then use a brush but PLEASE make sure you wash your brushes on a regular basis because bacteria builds up there and if it touches your skin then nako teh, you're gonna be a pizza face and you don't want that. Pambunot to keep your eyebrows clean, eyelash curler to give you that VAVAVOOM look and a random sponge. Cause.... Wala lang.

Make-up is a fun and wonderful thing but remember iba pa rin kapag freshhhh!

One afternoon I got bored and I ended up at my friend Saab's apartment. We suddenly had this bright idea to make a video! It started off as #firstworldproblems but then it ended up this way and we don't know how exactly! Hahaha anyways enjoy!

I would honestly like to think that I am not a bad actress, this is just me being a total gago hahaha but after this post I'm actually going to my first set of acting workshops with GMA. I love workshops, most artists find them nakakatamad but I'm always eager to learn something new and add new techniques to my acting ~skillllzz~!

And I got some really awesome news!!!!!

Last year I did an Indie film called "Catnip" with Maxene Magalona, it was directed by Kevin Dayrit and it's going to be shown in the New York Asian Film Festival along with another short film that I did called Vesuvius with was directed by Erik Matti! This is one of the most amazing things that has ever happened to me, in my showbiz career.

Catnip follows the story of two friends with coffee and cream personalities: Liv (as in live) and Cieca (means blind).

Liv lives with her two apathetic siblings, an emotionally devoid mother, and an obsessive compulsive, bipolar, and practically psychotic father. She is an introvert at home, constraining her true personality because everything she does is wrong due to overblown parental ego. Whenever shes not at home, she has this live-fast-die-young attitude, enjoying life while she can. She enjoys the company of her friend Cieca since she can be herself in front of her and be loved for who she is despite her rough attitude. She practically abuses Cieca as her daily dose of pain reliever.

Cieca is a silent, bored girl who views life as repetitive and fleeting. She has a loud mind, often talks to herself while scrutinizing her surroundings, predicting things before they happen since everything in her eyes is a cliché. Her mother died when she was young and lived alone ever since. Her father sends her excessive money for living expenses to cover up for not being there for her. Cieca found the perfect company with Liv. She is amused by Livs avant garde-esque unpredictability and sees her as something new, something to look forward to, and values her as a friend.

Vesuvius by Erik Matti

I really hope one day I could be one of those artists that have contributed something wonderful and worthwhile to this industry. Yes, sometimes it is flawed but we have so many talented writers, directors and actors out there. Help uplift this industry and support Philippine Cinema!

I'm back biiiiizzzzitttchez

Hello! Hi. Heeeey.. Ciao. Musta brad?

I don't know how to start this blog post, so I'll just word vomit.
First things first. Anyareh sakin? Anyareh sa blog ko? I started this blog promising myself that I would NOT abandon it, and thats exactly what I did, but in my defense it was because I forgot my password, how stupid of me right? Anyways I have absolutely nothing to do today so I have decided to get some things done. 1. I'm updating my iPhone so I have to rely on my laptop right now which leads to number 2. I have yet again stumbled on my ~forgotten~ blog. So hello there dear readers (if I have any) here I am again, but this time I will give you an update on my beautiful, crazy life.

For the past few months that I have been gone, I have done nothing but worked and can I just say I am simply HAPPY. I love my job, I love everything about it, even all the bad press and hate that I sometimes get, I have learned to love it, maybe now I have realised that it is part of the job (even though it shouldn't be) I have simply learned to accept it. Maybe because I have finally realised that I am NOT the only artist in the world who gets hate comments, I guess I was being a bit too sensitive about it all. I'm not saying I'm insensitive now, but I'm just better than I was 2-3 years ago. Now, I have learned to keep my mouth shut about certain things, I have learned to just be civil and honestly make the whole situation fun. Before when someone would call me names, I would cry, now when they call me names it makes me a tad bit stronger. When people would call me fat/ugly I would eat and stay up all night sulking, now I eat healthier and workout instead. Instead of sulking and making myself feel bad, what I do is, I turn all the negativity into something positive. I use it to my advantage, I turn it all around. #WORDVOMIT1

The only thing I don't like about my job is that its quite hard to go to school. Oh baka isipin niyo ang arte-arte mo naman, kung gusto may paraan kung ayaw magdadahilan. Thats seriously not the case, I was supposed to go to school this term, I'm an incoming sophomore pa naman, bye FROSHIE me. But ang pangit talaga ng schedule this term!!! I can only get Tuesday and Thursday schedule since I work MWF. Pero anyareh 2 subjects lang ang available? Huhuhu so nanghinayang ako, cause hello aminin naman natin Benilde is so expensive. So I talked to Megan and my mom about it and they were all just like "k, just go to work first, and go to school next term" casual lang diba? Hahahahaha! But no, I miss school. I was so excited pa naman because I was finally going to be able to take up my majors! As most of you know I love to cook and sakto my course is BS-HRIM majoring in Culinary and this was finally my chance to experience that! Oh well papel, next term nalang.

Right now I'm doing a project on GMA-7, called Mundo Mo'y Akin I play Darlene Carbonel, isang mayaman na girlaloo who is actually very very very very nice but the only reason why she is driven to be the psycho, mean girl that she is now is simply because all she wants is the love and attention that she feels like she hasn't been getting from her family and now ex- Jerome. I enjoy playing this character so much, especially since its my first time to be a "kontrabida" in a teleserye. There are so many things that I could do with her, so many endless possibilities and so many angles that I could explore! I'm also really loving the fact that the audience does understand her, I've been getting tweets like "Darlene is so annoying but you can't help but feel "awa" towards her"! Because thats exactly the point! Infairness you guys get it ha. *clap clap*

So thats my #WORDVOMIT segment guys. I really missed blogging, well its more like an open diary what I just did. I'm not as interesting as you all think I am, I'm just a girl who loves her family and friends, likes movies and going out, pandas and music, I want to travel the world. I'm like any other person, the only difference is you see me on TV. #feelingsikat

I like to joke around too.
