What’s your Skincare Regimen?

Sasha Manuel, short hairstyle, ombre hair colour, dip-dye hair trend | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Style, Lifestyle

Dry skin. Blemishes. Age spots. Wrinkles. Growing old. Stuff that nibbles at the edge of my consciousness. Is it vanity? Perhaps. “It’s something that I can’t stop,” I uttered with a sigh. Wheels of time will continue turning and it truly is something that’s not within my power to control. Yea, I will age, shrivel [...]

OLAY Total Effects Advanced Daily Moisturiser with Cooling Essence

Olay Total Effects 7 Advanced Daily Moisturizer with Cooling Essense and Anti-Ageing Serum | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Style, Lifestyle

When I wrote about the skincare regimen I’m currently on early this year, I mentioned having chosen to go for OLAY Total Effects. With only my experience with their Regenerist line to back up this choice, I’m satisfied enough to say now that this skincare line has proven itself to me. PLUS it doesn’t hurt [...]

Tog du jour: Visual Contrasts and Earth Tones

Sasha Manuel, Outfits, Tog du jour, Australia, Fall Looks | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Style

Fall is my favourite season. Leaves changing hues create a pretty fetching picture. Having lived in a country that only has 2 definitive seasons (wet and dry), I’ve only read about it and seen photos and films. That’s the reason why I was actually keen on taking the trip to Australia last March. Fall in [...]

Eye Makeup Love and Pub Friday

Beauty Editorial, Makeup, Cover Girl, The Body Shop, Bobbi Brown | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Style

One of the questions about makeup I often get revolves around eye shadow application. I do try to break it down for them if the situation allows it but, of course, as most of you who know how to put on eye makeup, it’s not that simple. Well, I never went to a formal school [...]

Current Skincare Regimen: Olay Total Effects

OLAY Total Effects 7-in-1 Anti-Ageing Cream | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Style

It’s been a good whole week since I started using a new set of skincare products for my daily beauty ritual (morning and night). Reason for the change is mainly due to a growing frustration with the dull skin tone and somewhat mildly irritated state that I had noticed my skin is in. With an [...]

Style Manila on its 3rd Year

2010 is starting out to be one heck of a busy year. I meant to do this last December but I had no time to organise it, not to mention, no time to see it through. What am I talking about? Well, I wanted to give away some stuff to celebrate Christmas, my birthday and [...]

MAC Mineralize SkinFinish Natural in Medium

MAC Mineralize SkinFinish Natural in Medium | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Fashion

This was actually my first stop during that fated Tuesday shopping spree (see Shoe binge post). I’ve been putting my trip to a MAC counter for so long that when I did find myself in Glorietta, I just knew I’m not going to deny my need any longer. I was in the market for a [...]

Work Wear: In T-Shirt and Jeans

Sasha Manuel, Work Wear - Outfits | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Fashion

A few posts ago, when I mentioned that the office dress code (where I work) is quite accommodating, what I actually meant was that I can actually come in a simple t-shirt and jeans combo. For the sake of argument, this particular outfit is not your typical t-shirt and jeans look — note that I [...]

Olay Total Effects Swap Event 2009

Fantastic opportunity to switch! I only found out about this OLAY Total Effects beauty event yesterday and I reckon it’d be great to share with you folks, just in case you missed it as well. The first round of swap is already over but good news is there are two more swap dates. One is [...]

The One-Two Skincare Combo

OLAY Regenerist Cream Cleanser and Regenerating Serum | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Fashion

If we talk about skincare, I’d often turn and put importance to the essentials. Cleansing is a vital part of taking care of one’s skin. Then I’d move on to moisture balance and exfoliation. The latter is important since in order to maintain the skin’s smoothness and elasticity, we have to regularly hydrate. As for [...]
