We’re taking matters into our own hands
Things haven’t quite looked up but that doesn’t mean our skin and beauty routines have to suffer. Taking care of ourselves and expressing our individual styles, be it in beauty or fashion, are especially important during such times. While we encourage everyone to keep their masks on (because you want to protect yourself and others, and you want businesses, big and small, to stay open and thrive), it shouldn’t stifle your beauty beat. Go ahead and wear color on your eyes, brush those lashes with a coat or two (or three) of mascara and tint those lips with something bold or bright. Doesn’t matter that no one else can see, you’re doing it for you.
Skinthusiast? We have a list of recommendations, from mists that enhance and celebrate natural skin to serums that leave it looking dewy and fresh:
Maybelline The Falsies Lash Lift Mascara
For that salon-grade length and volume
Keep your eyes open and looking bright with long and lifted lashes. No falsies or an impossible trip to the salon needed; Maybelline’s new mascara promises a lash lift look that delivers dramatic length and volume. With fiber-infused formula and a curved brush for better application, lashes are lifted, thickened and lengthened from root to tip. For best results, make sure to sweep until you get your desired look and don’t let the product dry between coats.

Fresh Formula Fix & Finish Face Mists
Enhance, refresh and hydrate
Whether you’re outside for errands or indoors ’til further notice, there’s one beauty staple that deserves a spot in your list of beauty failsafes. Proving that mists are essential, Fresh Formula’s witch hazel-infused Fix & Finish Face Mists are multi-targeted skin-saving elixirs. Alcohol, paraben and cruelty-free, the trio of mists boost the effects of your skincare routine while refreshing the skin. Each of the Fix & Finish Face Mists targets a different skin concern common in Filipino skin: Hello Hydration refreshes dehydrated skin with Sea Water and Rose Water; Glow Boost, formulated with Mandarin Extract and Niacinamide, invigorates dull skin; and Daily Defense keeps excess oil at bay with Tea Tree Oil and Niacinamide.
