You've been so busy lately that you've forgotten that it's Halloween and that you're attending a glamorous costume party with your best friends. You’ve got the outfit down, but you don’t know what to do with your makeup! Don’t panic, because we have compiled three different makeup ideas that will instantly get you ready for any Halloween party - what’s even better is that this takes minimal time, effort, and products!

All these looks only require 4 products, which are an eyeshadow palette with neutral and bright colors, foundation (of course), mascara, and lipstick. Read below to find out how you can instantly turn into either a cat, an Egyptian queen, or a 1920s flapper!


Look 1: 1920s Flapper

The 1920’s was all about partying hard, and no one knew it best than flappers. These were women who wore gothic makeup with brightly embellished dresses, smoked and drank until the Sun rose, and danced like there was no tomorrow. They knew how to have a good time and how to look beautiful while doing it.

To go back in time, heavily apply your foundation because these women loved full coverage. That’s not just all you’re going to apply heavily, though! Using a fluffy shadow brush, take a dark eyeshadow (or go full black, if you want) and apply it all over your lids down to your lower lash line - take a smokey eye look and elevate it 10 times more. Apply coats and coats of mascara to get that doll-eyed effect, and use a dark lipstick on your pout and the apples of your cheeks to finish everything! Do you already want to dance the Charleston? 

Look 2: Egyptian Queen

There are many versions on how to do Queen Cleopatra’s makeup, but the one that takes the cake is Elizabeth Taylor’s version where it perfectly balances sophistication, sultriness, and power.

If you think this makeup look is difficult to do, think again. All you will need is an HD foundation for a flawless base, a cool-toned eyeshadow to contour your cheekbones, black eyeshadow to overly draw your brows and eyeliner, coats of waterproof mascara, a nude lippie, and for the star of the show, lots and lots of teal eyeshadow. Basically, just emphasize everything and you will be ready to rule over any Halloween party you go to!

Look 3: Prowling Feline

Anyone who loves a good feline flick will love this look as it’s basically a cat eye, intensified. All you have to do to get this look under 15 minutes is to apply foundation where you only need it, use a rose lipstick as your blush, a black eye shadow to draw on the dramatic feline flicks, whiskers, and other cat details, fill in your brows with some neutral shadows, and top it off with some mascara! Quick, right? Don’t forget to blend things that need blending and you will be ready to meow in no time!

Women are known to be expressive---they smile, they laugh, they cry at every milestone in their lives. However, a recent global study conducted by Pond’s showed that 78% of women hold their facial expressions back due to fear of being stereotyped and fear of their lines and wrinkles being seen in plain sight.

After all, according to Pond's resident skin expert, Dr. Anna Palabyab, "just like the muscles in our bodies, the more often we use them, the bigger and stronger they get! As we get older, we lose elasticity in our skin and wrinkles will from in the areas of the face that we usually use the most. These wrinkles usually form around the eyes, in the forehead, in between the brows, and around the mouth.”

But there's good news! Because with the right kind of prevention, women no longer need to worry about their lines and be able to freely express themselves. The secret lies in using products that have Retinol that stimulates the production of collagen and and retains skin elasticity, making it less prone to lines and wrinkles.

And with this, women everywhere can finally forget the lines and take the time to the share their beautiful stories with each other, living life with their full expressions. 

So scroll down and be inspired by the stories of the Pond's Women as they share their favourite expressions and the stories behind them.

Iza Calzado For Fearless

“The most rewarding thing about being fearless is the transformation I go through when I take myself out of my comfort zone. Being fearless allows me to be anything I want to be and to achieve anything I set my mind to. When I finally achieve my goals, that's when I see the most beautiful version of myself emerge.”

Agoo Bengzon For Fabulous

"Being Fabulous knows no age and no boundaries. It's all about carrying yourself with confidence, knowing what looks good on you, experimenting with different styles, and knowing how to take care of yourself, especially your skin. Being fabulous is the foundation of beauty."

Cheska Kramer For Love

“When I became a wife, I realized even more how much I loved my husband. And when I had children, I discovered that I still had so much love to give, and there's still so much space in my heart. I'm never afraid to show my love for my family, because that is what defines me as a wife and as a mother.”

Apples Aberin For Passion

"I'm very passionate about my family and my work in public relations. I truly believe that I can make a difference in people's lives, that's why I give my all in every kind of endeavor that comes my way. I never do things half-baked. Passion is what drives me to do my best."

Rissa Trillo For Thrill

"Nothing thrills me more than challenging myself, going out of my comfort zone, trying something new, and getting what I want. I'm a perfectionist; failure is not an option. It's my best and worst trait, but this is what pushes me to do even more."

Vanessa Matsunaga For Confidence

"Confidence is the ability to believe in your most beautiful self. I'm able to do that because I know God has a plan for me. I may not be the best at everything, but he's given me everything I need to make a difference and become the most beautiful version of myself."
