Editor’s Note: We sent our ClozetteINSIDER Contributor, Resa Peralta, to the recent #CreamSilkTransformations event held at the World Trade Center Tent in The Philippines. Here’s her Insider experience at Creamsilk’s latest campaign launch, aimed at empowering the modern Filipina!

--------------------------


It was such a privilege to attend the recent #CreamSilkTransformations event as they showcased the Modern Filipina beauty that goes beyond limitless opportunities. There were hundreds of guests from fashion and beauty professionals, bloggers, and media—all gathered for one goal to empower, inspire, and influence every woman to be their very best and experience a transformation from within.



The event had a lot of fun-filled activities focusing on beauty, fashion, and of course hair care tips. These were showcased in every workshop done by the industry leaders. There were also free hair make overs, free photoshoots from professional photographers, awesome food, cocktails, and freebies from Cream Silk.
One of the most memorable things that happened to me during the event was being asked to be a model at the Metro Magazine Workshop with the professional photographer, Sara Black.



I will never forget this amazing time in my life. This may seem like nothing, but for me it was a transformative moment as I’ve always been struggling when it comes to confidence. Years ago, I could never imagine myself standing in front of so many people because I was afraid that everyone would judge me because of how I look or how weak they perceive me to be. But there I was, courageously and fearlessly standing in front of many people, a living testimony for every woman who struggles with their self confidence! You can be confidently beautiful by believing in yourself and knowing that you are a woman of worth.

The main highlight of the event was the unveiling of the new Cream Silk #ModernFilipinas ambassadors. I witnessed a live cover photo shoot done by the top industry leaders with these beautiful Modern Filipinas: Julie Anne San Jose for Meg Magazine, Coleen Garcia for Preview, Nadine Lustre for Metro Magazine, Heart Evangelista for Mega Magazine, Rachelle Anne Go for Yes! Magazine, and Yassi Pressman for Cosmopolitan.

Miss Universe Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach also made her first public appearance in the Philippines since winning the crown. Pia is such an inspiration and a wonderful example for all women out there who may feel weak or hopeless on their dreams or on themselves. Truly she is the epitome of the Modern Filipina beauty as she encouraged everyone to not give up on their dreams, with the hopes that her experience in the world stage can truly become an inspirational message to every Modern Filipina that aspires to be the best and to be beyond beautiful.

It used to be that our skincare routines only consisted of washing our faces with water and layering on some sort of lightweight moisturiser. But thanks to advancements in technology and a lot of skincare brands, we now know better for our skin. We know that our pores can get clogged, that we don’t have the same skin types, and more. So a typical routine of cleansing and moisturising isn’t enough anymore.

If you’re a person who loves beauty, then you know the benefits of exfoliating and deep cleansing your face after a day of wearing a full face of makeup— it removes every bit of all the products you used to prevent them from giving you new blemishes.

So to give your skin that glow after a long day of wearing heavy makeup, here are the 4 easy steps you need to do to treat and deeply cleanse your skin!

--------------------------


Remove Your Makeup

It’s a crime to sleep with your makeup on — but you already knew that! So end the day by using the NIVEA 3-in-1 Deep Cleansing Exfoliating Wipes which has a soft and textured side for that added strength in removing your makeup. The soft side gently removes all the products you used, even the waterproof ones. And the textured side exfoliates and refines your skin to leave it completely clean and soft!

Double Cleanse




But removing your makeup doesn’t completely put you in the clear for blemish-free skin. You will need to cleanse one more time to get there. We suggest using a cleanser with mud or charcoal in its ingredients, like the NIVEA Extra White Mud Foam, which should be left on the face for a few seconds to really draw out all the impurities that were left behind in your pores! 


Use A Toner

Does your skin feel ‘too’ squeaky clean? That’s often a bad sign because it means your skin has been completely stripped. So to restore the balance and moisture in your face, while getting rid of pesky blemishes, apply Witch Hazel to your face! It's a natural based toner that cleans and tightens your pores, while also reducing inflammation and redness.


Finish Off With Moisturiser

No skincare routine is complete without moisturiser. To complete your deep cleansing and pampering session, you need to top off your routine with your favourite night cream or serum, so it can really hydrate and plump up your skin skin for that beautiful, clean, and glowing look!

Softly defined eyes are gorgeous, but winged eyes are even better. The satisfaction of having two identical feline flicks is breath-taking because drawing them on is hard work. You need precision, calmness, and the best eyeliner out there!

Do you want to get perfectly smooth and clean feline flicks? Besides constant practice (which is fun, too!), you will need the perfect eyeliner. So to find out which liners we love, and you surely will too, keep reading below for our six favourites ranging from drugstore to mid range to high end!

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

While felt tip eyeliners are more common, the clean precision of a brush tip is growing in popularity because it is just as amazing. Kat Von D’s liquid brush-tipped eyeliner will give you control, precision, and pigmentation with just one swipe! Whether you want jet black lines or soft brown ones, this liner won’t budge and smudge on the hottest of days, so you can surely have flicks on fleek all day and night!

Maybelline Eye Studio HyperSharp Liquid Liner

For those who are still starting out with their makeup collection, you will love Maybelline’s liquid liner! Not only is it extremely affordable, but its tip is so thin (0.1 mm, to be precise) that you won’t have any problems drawing on layers upon layers of wings! Through thick and thin liner looks, this product will take you there!


MAC Fluidline

If we could only pick one gel eyeliner, it would be MAC’s Fluidline. Not only do they have an amazing range of colours to suit all your liner needs, but their formula is incredibly smooth and pigmented! Just take your trusty angled liner brush or pointed liner brush and draw whatever your heart desires, and what the magic happen.


Benefit They’re Real Push-Up Liner

If you have a hard time with pens and brushes, then you are going to adore this innovative eyeliner from Benefit — the They’re Real Push-Up Liner! It’s a gel eyeliner that looks like a pen, but can deliver clean-cut wings with its angled applicator! And once it dries and sets, it’s not going anywhere! Just be mindful of how much product you twist up because you don’t want to waste a drop of this product!


K-Palette Real Lasting Waterproof Eyeliner

Brush-tipped liners are really having a moment right now because they don’t fray, and they deliver pigment much more than their felt counterparts! If you really want an eyeliner that won’t go anywhere and give you raccoon eyes by the end of the day, K-Palette’s liquid liner will be your new best friend! Its quick drying formula will ensure that it resists everything from sweat to oil!


Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil

The best tool to draw on winged eyeliner when you’re not always sure is a pencil. There are so many versions of pencil liners now, but our favourites are still Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On eyeliners because of its buttery smooth formula that gives excellent pigmentation, and of course, sets and doesn’t budge all day! If you want to do a little tracing with your feline flicks before going in with a gel or liquid liner, these pencils will be great for that.
