There are regular days when we sport our everyday makeup look, while there are special days (like graduation day or formal parties) wherein we want to look extra pretty. Remember, the cameras are clicking so it's always nice to put our Best Face Forward!
You may have noticed this sign on selected stores of The Body Shop around Metro Manila.
The Body Shop recently launched its new campaign: Best Face Forward Makeover, a paid makeover service worth P1,500.00 wherein P1,000.00 is consumable of makeup products.
The Body Shop has 3 signature beauty pegs, but you may customize or request your own look if preferred.
Fresh Faced Beauty
Get a fresh, nude look for weekends
Bloom in Pink
Look pretty in pink, with a soft, romantic look
Ready to party? Smolder with smoky eyes
Being an advocate of the natural makeup look, I went for the Fresh Faced Beauty look.
I like the fact that this product now comes in 4 shades! I found a better match in shade 00. This BB cream is unique since it has color changing pigments, which goes from white to flesh (or whatever your skintone is). The Body Shop could've sold this as a CC cream!
I'm currently into mineral makeup, and I've learned to embrace loose powder. With practice, I can now apply loose powder foundation such as this without causing mess. Hooray! :D This one from The Body Shop has a radiant finish (with teeny tiny light reflecting pigments) and feels so light on the skin.
A best-seller for a good reason: The pinkish red flush from this tint suits ALL skintones! Tip: This one's best applied using a synthetic foundation brush.
These two shades are so me - they're practically my go-to eye makeup shades since I'm not too into the loud colors. Oh Honey is a pretty champagne shade that brightens up the eye area even on its own, while Coconuts About You is a contouring shade that could also be used for the eyebrows (since it's matte).
The Body Shop Liquid Eyeliner
For my ultra-talented eyelids which manages to smudge all the eyeliners I've tried, I think this one is the answer. The makeup artist applied this on me after lunch, and come nighttime, it's still a beautiful, fine solid line. SOLD!
The Body Shop Big and Curvy Mascara
As a finishing touch, mascara was applied. I chose a water-resistant one since I'm lazy with removal, but you can also use the waterproof version of this.
Before & After:
For the love of my readers, here's the rare moment I'd let you see me without eyebrows (or any trace of makeup). The before photo was taken just after I had my Barre3 class, so that's no cheek stain you're seeing! ;)
My look was done by Vivian Mendoza, the makeup artist of The Body Shop Trinoma. She has magic hands! :D
The usual rate for makeup done professionally at a salon would go around P2,000.00 or higher, but with the Best Face Forward Makeover (worth P1,500.00), not only do you get all dolled up and learn new makeup tips along the way, you also get to take home the makeup products of your choice (worth P1,000.00). Oh, I'd choose this over getting my makeup done at a salon, any day.
The Body Shop Best Face Forward (BFF) Makeover is available at the following branches: MOA, Megamall, Trinoma, Rockwell, The Block, SM City, Glorietta 2, Podium, Festival, and Gateway. Like The Body Shop, Philippines on Facebook for more information.
