MOTD : Updated Daily Look | Bon Parisien


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hello, folks! It has been a while!

Things have been busy from my end over here. I have been busy catching up with old friends, hanging out with relatives, going to the beach and frolicking and shit, and busy with completing requirements for Canada. I have been so busy that I couldn’t find the energy to film an MOTD! But here’s one, at last.

Today’s Makeup Of The Day is an updated daily makeup look that I do most days. I am lazy to deal with any eyeshadows so this has been my go-to look. It is easy, quick, and the end result is a very nice enhanced version of how I look like without makeup. Ha!

Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy this. I am glad to be getting back to filming, so expect a lot more MOTDs coming your way.

Thanks for watching and sharing!


MOTD : Daytime Glam ft. My Fave Lip Combo | Bon Parisien


, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hello, friends! How are you?

Here is my version of Daytime Glam featuring my most favourite lip combo at the moment. I have been rocking this lip combo every day for the past two weeks now and I have been getting nothing but praises! I thought I’d share it with you, of course.

I do not normally wear false lashes but because I’m going glam, I had to wear them in this video. I am also currently searching for good lashes here in the Philippines. Any suggestions?

I have also been gravitating towards the Naked 1 palette by Urban Decay a whole lot lately. Even my mum has been loving it! :D I seem to favor it more than the Lorac Pro 1, for now at least.

See you in my next video! Thanks for watching and sharing.


MOTD : Feelin’ Blue | Bon Parisien

Hi, everyone! How is it going?

Here’s my new MOTD, where I employ a similar technique that I used when I did my New Year’s Eve tutorial: I apply a pop of colour along the lower lash line and I let that be the focus of the entire look. It is quite easy to achieve. The tricky part is to make sure that all the rest of the colours applied on the face won’t compete with whatever colour is on the lash line. Also, I was debating whether to apply Naked Lunch on the lids but I went for it anyway, and I’m glad that it complements the pop of blue!

Anyhooha, I am still lounging around and relaxing in the Philippines. While I am glad to be here and hang out with friends and family, I am starting to get a little bit bored because I don’t do a whole lot and maybe because I do not have easy access to makeup stuff? Priorities… Ha!

I hope you guys like my MOTD and I look forward to bringing you guys another video next time. Thank you for watching and sharing!



MOTD : Purple Smoky | Bon Parisien


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hey, world! How do you do?

Purple is something that I do not normally wear on the eyes and elsewhere, so I thought I’d think out of the box for a bit and go for a smoky purple look. What do you think?

I like how the makeup has turned out, to be honest. I should dare to go bold a lot more than usual, eh? I also love the lips. That MUFE lipstick is a nude one (I’m a lover of nudes and neutrals!) and I should also wear it more often. Love the combo with the Urban Decay lipgloss.

Anyway, for a bit of an update here in the Philippines, summer is coming up and it is gonna be smoldering hot! Suffice to say, I am not looking forward to it. I am already having trouble with the current weather and it’s only going to get warmer from hereon out. Yuck.



MOTD : Let’s do Matt(e)! | Bon Parisien


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hey guys! How are you doing?

For my makeup today, I thought I’d go matte on the eyes. It’s something that I don’t normally go for but when I do, I’m always amazed at how simple, elegant, and beautiful it looks.

For this video, I use the Meet Matte Nude palette from The Balm. It’s a makeup brand that I do not have easy access to and with what very few products I have from said brand, I am very impressed at everything that I have from them.

I cannot wait to get my hands on more The Balm items! Any suggestions?


MOTD : Pop of Green | Bon Parisien


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hello, world!

For today’s makeup tutorial, I go for a pop of green on the eyes. Green is not something I use all the time. In fact, this is probably only the 2nd time that I have put a green eyeshadow on the eyes. It’s not a colour I gravitate towards, makeup-wise (even though it is my fave colour, along with red and black).

I use the Urban Decay Electric palette, one of those surprisingly wearable palettes but can totally be taken to extremes for a bolder look. I also rely (of course) on my MAC palette. I picked out the colours myself and I am looking forward to creating another palette of MAC shadows. Any recommendations?

Anyway, just for a wee update on my stay in the Philippines:
It is going just fine. I am glad to be here, I am glad to see my family and friends. But truth be told, I am starting to get bored (this is probably why I just thought of wearing a green eyeshadow because I have nothing better to do, haha). When I was in Europe, I was doing something every single day. Here, it’s a bit of a step backwards. Needless to say, I cannot wait to move to Canada!

How’s February been to you? Let me know down below!



Valentines Makeup : Soft Brown Smoky | Bon Parisien


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I am sad this Valentine’s Day. :-(

Well, it’s great to be in the Philippines and all but my boo is back in Europe and me no likey because we won’t be able to spend V Day together. It’s alright though. It gives us more reason to make sure we’re together next year. :-D

Anyway, here is my take on Valentine’s Day makeup. For this one, I went for a very soft brown smoky look. If you haven’t noticed, this video and the most previous one have both involved me skipping the black gel liner that I used to do. I have been into just sweeping a dark eyeshadow along the upper lash line and smoking it out by blending. I like the much softer effect that it creates.

Anyway, I hope you like this MOTD. If you have any questions, suggestions, recommendations, or what-have-you, feel free to let me know in the comment section down below.

Thanks for watching!


MOTD : Neutral Glowy | Bon Parisien


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

So recently, I have been into this technique where the eyes are defined by running a dark shade along the upper lash line only. The trick here is to blend, blend, blend and smoke the eyeshadow out. Not only is it such a beautiful neutral, daily look, it is also very easy to achieve!

I hope you guys enjoy this vid as much as I had fun filming it. This is my go-to daily look at the moment and I am loving it!

PS. The Philippines is still super hot but I am rediscovering my birth country again and it is a good feeling. That said, I can’t wait to leave for Canada. Ha!


Haul / Review + Welcome to the Philippines | Bon Parisien


, , , , , , , , , ,

I am in the Philippines! Holy crap, it’s too surreal! The original plan was to fly / move to Vancouver straight from Paris but since I had a few months off, my mum thought it would be better for me to return to the Philippines and visit my relatives and friends. Needless to say, I am very glad to be here! That said, it is SUPER FREAKIN’ HOT! It was -3C when I was in Germany last week and now it is around 30C where I am. Insane!

Anyway, I thought it would good to start off my time in the Philippines with a haul video. Here are the products I picked up last in Europe before I left. Also, watch out for some of the haul videos I will be doing WHILE in the Philippines because:
1. There are products that are locally produced here and according to my mum, they are phenomenal!;
2. And there are foreign brands that are available here but not as accessible in Europe, so I will definitely be trying them out!

Makeup tutorial inspired by Marsala | Bon Parisien


, , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


Okay folks, for 2015, Pantone’s Color of the Year is Marsala! Beautiful color, methinks. This is my take on that using primarily a wine red color on the eyes but is less brown-based than Marsala itself. That said, this look is still an altogether beautiful eye makeup that is totes wearable all-year long.

Anyway, how are you guys? I just wanna let you know that this video right here is going to be my last video here in Germany. (Whuuuuuuut?!?!)

Where’s my next destination, you ask? Well, stay tuned and find out in a few days because it is gonna be very exciting!!! I myself cannot wait!
