Makeup enthusiasts and working women alike love products that multitask and save space in their kikay kits. That's where items like lip and cheek stains come in.
Among the country's top contenders in the lip and cheek category is the Ever Bilena Advance Lip and Cheek Stain.
This product is considered by its fans as an all-in-one tube.
It gives the lips the tint it needs, and makes the cheeks look rosy, too.
Makeup lovers also sometimes use this as a base for their eye shadow to make it last longer.
TIPS AND TRICKS. Aside from its versatility, EB Advance Lip and Cheek Stain is also very easy to use, and won't intimidate those who do not know how to apply makeup.
At the brand's #EverBReady for Everyday event held yesterday, May 23, at the Grace Park in Rockwell, Makati City, resident makeup artist Elma Oraye told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), "Perfect siya sa mga hindi gaanong ma-makeup at sa mga gustong mag-makeup pero walang time."
The crucial thing to master is the "blending techniques."
Elma enumerated, "After washing your face, puwede mo na ilagay sa kamay mo muna [back of hand], at huwag masyadong madami.
"Small amount lang then i-blend mo.
"'Tapos, using your fingers [middle and ring fingers], i-apply mo pa-side. Sundan mo lang yung cheekbones mo.
"May rosy cheeks ka na parang si Ellen Adarna."
If your face is a bit oily, Elma suggests using liquid foundation on your face first.
She also put emphasis on the order of the products that you will use: Liquid foundation, lip and cheek stain, then face powder.
She said, "Mas maganda pag liquid to be sure na hindi mamumuo. 'Tapos blend mo lang ulit."
The lip and cheek stain is available in two colors: Very Red and Perfect Plum.
The latter, according to Elma, is "para sa mga morena."
Best of all, it only costs PHP175.
Elma added, "This tube, may kasamang moisturizer para sa lips."
