    Dermalogica is one of my favorite skincare brands so whenever I get the chance to try something new from the line, elation becomes second nature. Today I'm sharing how to remove makeup efficaciously. I know it sounds petty but like common sense, it is not as common as one would surmise.

    BB (beauty balm or blemish balm) Cream is probably the most hyped beauty product in recent years. A hybrid between skincare and makeup, it hydrates, primes, and rejuvenates skin while offering sun protection altogether. However, what makes it quite frustrating to the general public is the limited color range offered by every brand, every company. Too light, too dark, too yellow, too pink, tell me if you can relate. Quick solution? DIY!

    Hello there zillas! Today I'm sharing my fitness routine as requested by friends (and some subscribers). Take note, I'm no fitness expert or coach but I do enjoy working out at the comfort of my patio, at least 3 times a week, 1-2 hours each. I'm a work in progress; while I love my strong athletic legs, I still need to tone my flabby arms and lazy abs. To tell you the truth, there are moments I'd rather be a couch potato especially on weekends but you know what, my body craves sweat like Dracula yearns blood! So whenever I'm starting to feel sluggish, I grab my Solo 2 Beats by Dre and tune in to Pandora. On top of my playlist? Pitbull no less!

    I'm a staunch advocate of "prevention is better than cure". As a vegetarian, non-alcoholic, non-smoker, and fitness enthusiast, I am happy to say that I'm starting to reap what I planted earlier on. Barring unforeseen medical conditions, I feel that at 40, I am at my healthiest stage with unprecedented stamina I can only describe in hashtag #powI practice the same philosophy when it comes to skincare. While I don't profess to possess flawless skin, what with acne marks and obvious pores (the awkward memories of my teenage years), I have been wearing sunscreen and using moisturizer for eons. For the most part, I think it is the primary reason why wrinkles haven't settled in yet.

    I'm all about light coverage these days, foundation-wise. Throw in some skincare, you bet I'm tryin' and buyin'. Case in point, the newly-released Dior Nude Air Serum De Teint ($53, 1 oz), a serum-slash- foundation with broad spectrum SPF 25.

    Another day, another enabling. Previously, I shared my top high-end neutral (read here) and red lipsticks (read here) which most of you found helpful. Today I'm sharing a rather unusual shade, at least for everyday wear. Violet can be intimidating, probably more than fuchsia and coral but believe me, it's a stunning shade you need to own right now. My tip to wearing vibrant shades outside your comfort zone? keep the rest of your makeup simple and let your puckers be the center of attention.

    I am a very busy woman and I know you are too. While our definition of "being busy" is relative, multi-tasking is obviously a way of life for us. So much so that I get bored or finicky when I don't do anything productive. My mantra: constant mind and body stimulation or wither to obscurity.

    Given this frame of thought, I tend to gravitate towards products that also multi-task. Time is a factor; if it can perform several things simultaneously, you bet I'm in! I was recently introduced to Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield ($65, 1.0 fl oz/ 30 ml) a primer, sunscreen and anti-aging treatment in a pump bottle.

    If I were to pick my absolute favorite in the whole makeup category, lipstick wins by million miles. Sheer, sheen, matte, I've tried 'em all. But you know what ruins a perfect lippy? dry and cracked lips!
     

    If you had acne in your teens, your chance of experiencing the same agony in your adult years is most likely high. It's like a ghost from the past that keeps hunting you. I talk from experience and while I don't break out as much now, it's a PITA to be dealing with zits when you have other important matters to attend to. A comedic spinoff to this? you can't face a problem if the problem is your face!

    Give it to Tom Ford when it comes to breaking the norm. While Spring is easily associated with subtle and pastel shades, this year's collection is bursting with deep plum, jade, indigo, and all sorts  of smokin' hot sexiness (The Beauty Professor has swatches of the entire collection if you're curious to see). I skipped the eye duos but purchased the Limited Edition Creme Color For Eyes, a bewitching khaki-mud cream eyeshadow you can use alone or as base for intense smokey eyes.
