It's been a long time!

Hey guys! Sorry it took me a long time to post something. It's been over a year since I last blogged. This time I will try to be here as often as possible. I have a ton of fun stuff to tell you!

Let's start off by telling you guys that I am no longer in the Philippines. Yeah, that's right. Last year (Oct 2014), I flew to Dubai. Like a typical Filipino, I came here for work. As you all know, I am a Registered Nurse in the PI. I tried seeking jobs in hospitals and any health related fields. I had a lot of job offers and was already prepared to accept one as a customer service in a prestigious hospital. As per their hiring process, I had to extend my visa for a month in order to have enough time in preparing my requirements. I just don't know why, suddenly one day I decided to try and look for a job as a make up artist. Luckily, I got an interview and I passed.

To cut the story short, I am now working here in Dubai as a Make Up Artist. I am hired by an individual. Isn't it so perfect? All my life I've always been into beauty, glam and cosmetics. This is probably the start of a new career path for me and I am so enjoying it!

Watch out for my next posts all about my new discoveries in beauty!

Hello beautiful! I am Leia. I'm here to blog about beauty! We'll talk about anything related to taking care of yourself, being glamorous, fabulous and everything a girl wants! First, I will share my beauty basics. The things/products I use to take care of my face. Not necessarily about cosmetics but we'll get there. Here are some of my favorite products:

* The Classic/Vintage Nivea Creme-- This is a heavy cream moisturizer that I only use at night time. It really hydrates and moisturizes your face. I also use this to remove makeup excess if my facial wash can't do the trick. And also you can put some of this on a q tip or cotton bud to take out some eyeshadow fall out or excess. A very good product!

* The very famous Olay Total Effects Moisturizer-- This is probably the most expensive moisturizer I have ever purchased (around 700 php) but definitely a good buy! It's a tinted cream that u can use as your foundation base. You don't need a BB cream if you're going to use it but if you're a BB cream lover, then why not. I use this as my everyday moisturizer. It's light and not oily. If you apply a liberal amount this can actually hide some blemishes.

*Skinlite Nose Strip-- The most effective nose strip I have ever tried so far! It's easy to apply and easier to take off. You can really see the blackheads and whiteheads on the strip!

* Veet Facial Wax Strip-- I have a friend who noticed my upper lip hair and advised  me to use this Veet wax. I tried it and it does magic! It leaves my upper lip clean and when the hair starts to grow, it seems thinner.

*Chapstick Ultra-- I think every girl needs a Chapstick. It's a must-have in my makeup bag. I put it on before I do my makeup, before I go to bed and whenever I feel my lips go dry. It's super helpful whenever you're going to use a matte lipstick. The lipstick applies on smoothly and does not crease, especially for pink lipsticks.

Those are just some of my beauty basics. I will be posting more of the products I use and will recommend. Thanks for reading! Stay Beautiful!
