MAC Opulash Optimum Black Mascara, MAC 212 Flat Definer Brush | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Style, Lifestyle

In the years leading up to this day, I’ve been through countless experimental makeup pursuits which solidify my resolve that with a certain amount of effort coupled with a significant showing of interest, someone who lacks skill will eventually learn enough of what makeup type she feels is comfortable for herself and suitable to her [...]

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 [...]

Colouring Past the Lines, An FOTD

Fashion and Lifestyle Blogger, Sasha Manuel - FOTD, Makeup | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Fashion

As children, our first venture into exploring creativity is holding onto that first box of crayons and a stack of papers our parents may have let us have. Moving onto the first day in primary, we’d always have an activity to experiment with colours then shifted to using different mediums as we move up each [...]

Shu Uemura Nobara Cream Cover Stick Foundation | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Fashion

Another interesting addition to my Shu Uemura shopping list. This list seems to grow longer each week. Heh. But I simply couldn’t resist the urge to check this baby out. The cult favourite foundation now comes in stick form. Shu Uemura introduces the Nobara Cream Cover Stick Foundation. Formulated to give the instant high coverage [...]

Webcam Fun (An FOTD)

Sasha Manuel - Webcam FOTD | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Fashion

It’s a sick day (been sick since Saturday afternoon) but it’s not going to stop me from having a bit of fun. While leaving Jerry Maguire on telly, I tinkered with Skype — taking snapshots via the webcam. Found it a bit disconcerting to be using a webcam to take a photo, a first for [...]

Something New: Shu Uemura Eyebrow Gel

Shu Uemura Eyebrow Gel | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Fashion

Do you do your eyebrows whenever you put on makeup? One of the things I learned late in this whole makeup thing is how one would benefit from including it. But once I discovered how it contributes in the over-all look, I do my best to remember to do my eyebrows every time. For some, [...]

A Semi-Working Weekend in Tagaytay

Mayi, Sasha & Penny - FOTDs Wedding | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Fashion

Over the weekend, I attended a wedding up in Tagaytay. Apart from being one of the groom’s guests, I played makeup artist-slash-hair stylist for two girls who are part of the entourage. A tricky thing, actually. It means I need more time in terms of prepping. All of us live in Manila and the wedding [...]

Sunday, Another Errand Day

Sasha Manuel - Outfits 06.28.09 | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Fashion

It’s all part of growing up. Responsibilities multiply and would either nag you into irritation or push you to be a better person. No matter how much stomping you do, they simply won’t go away. Best to accept and deal with them accordingly. Our portions are as it should be. It’s all a matter of [...]

Beauty Review: Shu Uemura Depsea Water Facial Mist, Sage

Shu Uemura Depsea Water Sage Mist | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Fashion

How far will you go in terms of caring for your skin? Interesting question, actually. It’s one of the more important beauty questions one should ask herself (or some cases, himself). Will using a facial wash and toner combo for cleansing enough to remove heavy makeup? Do you schedule facials and peelings as part of [...]

At the Shu Uemura Event, John Pagaduan

John Pagaduan, Shu Uemura Event | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Fashion

While taking a break from the Shu Uemura Event happening inside The Spa in Bonifacio High Street, Char and I were later joined by Stella’s EIC Geolette who had struck up a conversation with a stylish guy in black. The stranger mentioned that he was wearing Kate Torralba which explains why I quickly asked if [...]
