One of the most difficult, but no less beautiful, colours to work with when it comes to makeup is pink. Whether it’s an eyeshadow, mascara, or eyeliner, wearing pink can easily go from chic to ‘eeek’ because it often resembles a viral infection called "pinkeye". 

The fact is if pink is worn incorrectly, it emphasises the redness of your eyes, making it look like you have the dreaded pinkeye. And you wouldn’t want people to think you do, right?

So if you’re in the mood to give your peepers a soft, feminine pop of colour, we have the 3 tips that will allow you to wear pink eye makeup like a boss!


Put a barrier

The reason wearing pink might make you look like you have pinkeye is because there’s no barrier between the shadow and your eye – allowing the shadow to blend in and emphasise any redness you may already have. To remedy that, put an eyeliner on your lashline; not only will it help make the shadow pop, but it will make it look flattering too. You can go for the standard black, or spice things up a bit by opting for bronze or khaki shades!


Placement matters

If you want to create a pink smoky eye, avoid directly placing the hue on your lower lashline because this is where the eye usually swells up when suffering from pinkeye. Instead, after you apply the pink hue on your lower lashline, go in and smudge another shade on top of it, like a black or cool-toned brown, to act as a barrier. And voilà, you’ve got an edgy pink smoky eye!


Choose your pinks wisely

Just like blues, purples, greens, and browns, there are also a ton of different shades of pink, in different finishes, in the market today. So choose your shade of pink wisely! If you’re heading to work, we suggest going for a babydoll pink or a golden pink: it looks sophisticated and is easy to work with. But if you want to make a statement, a fuchsia will do just that for you! Once you have your perfect pink and follow our tips above, you’ll be slaying the pink trend in no time.

Who doesn’t like trying out the latest hair trends? They’re fun, creative, and often you find a new ‘do to rock! But it’s hard to experiment with different hair looks if you don’t have the perfect base i.e. frizzy hair.

Luckily, TRESemmé released their latest haircare range, Keratin Smooth, last 28th September at The Picasso Boutique to specifically make hair smoother, shinier, and softer and make it easier for you to create salon-gorgeous styles in the comfort of your own home.

Packed with keratin to lock hair into place and fight frizz and dryness, this new hair care collection will keep locks smoother and sleek for longer periods of time.

So while we were at The Picasso Boutique, we got to quickly chat with the brand’s newest salon expert and hair professional, Henri Calayag. And of course, we wanted to get his two cents on hair tips, all the way to his favourite hairstyles.

Throughout your 36-year career, what’s the most difficult "hair problem" you've encountered?

[I'm very thankful] that keratin was there before rebonding. Because rebonding was so [popular] that no hairdresser could pull off a good job… -- there would always be minor [damages done to the hair] since it’s really filled with hard chemicals and there’s no silhouette in it. It’s really dead flat.

What do you think people constantly do to their hair that damages it without them even knowing?

It’s constant ironing and subjecting it to blow drying, because sometimes when you do it yourself you don’t practise doing it at a certain distance.

What would you suggest they do instead to minimise damage to their hair?

Well, there’s keratin to take care of that. So from the [TRESemme] shampoo and conditioner, it already has keratin in it. But then to extend [the effects], my personal favourite is the hair mask. It’s concentrated…and if you want to style [your hair after] with a flat iron, it has thermal technology built in which will prevent you from using too much heat.

Do you have any hair tips for beginners who want to start styling their own hair?

First, use the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner to thoroughly cleanse your hair and scalp and lock it into place. For even better maintenance, treat it to a weekly mask with the Keratin Smooth Treatment Mask. It intensely replenishes each strand and makes sure you control your frizz! Seal it in using the Heat Activated Treatment, and if you’re styling it for a special day, spritz on the Flat Iron Spray to add another layer of protection.

Which hairstyle do you think is suitable for every one?

Medium length hair. This is the new length now because if you see anything longer than this, you’ll immediately think, “Oh that is so 5 years ago.” But then anything above it is so 2 years ago.


The TRESemmé Keratin Smooth collection is now available in all department stores, drugstores, and supermarkets in the Philippines.



Whether it’s a perfectly blended smoky eye or a so-sharp-it-can-cut-you feline flick, no beauty addict is a stranger to playing up her eyes. They say that the eyes are the windows to the soul, and we couldn’t agree more. They speak volumes about someone, and can even show one’s personality.
