No matter how many variations of the red-lip trend there have been, the “fresh face” may just be the only beauty look that won’t ever get old.
Some think the look is easy to pull off. But it is not, really. It is the product of a long trial-and-error process. One has to test and retest skincare and makeup products in order to perfect a certain look. And one has to make key, even radical, lifestyle changes.
It’s a good thing that technology is on our side. The laborious steps that were once necessary to look great, let alone decent, have continuously been reduced and simplified, making looking effortlessly radiant less of a hassle.
One process that has been simplified is coming up with the perfect eyeliner.
I recently found out about Browhaus’ Eye Define procedure, a life- (and eye-) changing technique that might turn into a good personal habit.
It’s a semipermanent treatment that lines and defines the peepers, making them appear brighter and fuller sans the tiresome application.
While it seems overboard for a brow bigwig to extend its services to another type of eye-related tattoo, having precisely lined eyes really does complement a polished pair of brows.
No wonder the process is also as meticulous; Browhaus specialists are trained to evaluate your eyes, illustrate the eyeliner that fits on your lids, and make the necessary adjustments before jumping in.
Amazingly enough, this hour-long treatment costs P28,000 (upper lashline) or P24,000 (lower lashline), both of which can last three to five years.
Who knew a small thing could do big wonders?
Simple is best
Speaking of little big miracles—which can help us achieve a fresh face faster with less steps, specifically—I take cues from Oliver & Maude CEO Kat Gonzales de los Angeles’ simple but trusty beauty philosophy.
“Keep it simple,” she has said, when asked what makeup advice she’ll pass on to her daughter.
“Make-up glides best on clear, smooth skin. There’s no need to use so much makeup, a little goes a long way. The simpler and more natural, the better.”
Kat has been an inspiring example of how grace and style can really amplify one’s character. Her character and personality can be seen in her monogrammed lifestyle accessories, a sleek array of refined knickknacks and thoughtful designs.
Being a businessman, model, wife and mother, Kat has been able to balance her roles while staying beautiful despite the pressures of a busy lifestyle. And it shows.
Looking effortlessly good is as much an inward process as it is an outward one. Try it for yourself.
