JANE MAKEUP - Thailand

(Beauty Bound Asia Winner)




You won Beauty Bound Asia! Congrats! How has this changed your life so far? What are you most looking forward to? 

Before this competition, I was a small beauty creator in Thailand. I do my videos in Thai and sometimes in English as well, because I want to share and inspire a people not only in Thailand but also throughout the world. After winning Beauty Bound Asia, and becoming “Asia’s Next Top Beauty Creator,” I feel like my community has expanded, and that it is not just only in Thailand anymore, but also now the rest of Asia. I am hoping and [believing] it will spread around the world!

What’s your top tip for budding creators out there who are hesitant to start their YouTube channel? 

I just did a video about "ten tips in order to become beauty creator." You should go and check it out! I will just pick one tip from the ten that I shared in my video. One of the most important things I think is to be yourself. Be real to your viewers. They will know whether you lie to them or not. The one thing that I feel makes a beauty creator special and different from a celebrity is that celebrities are part of marketing campaigns and receive payment to represent a brand; but we as influencers will share our own feelings and have to be real to our audience. I think we are more relatable in that sense.

CHARIS OW - Malaysia




What was the Beauty Bound Asia experience like? Was it everything you expected it would be? 

It was a great experience and to be honest, it was way more than what I expected it to be. I never expected to make such amazing friends along the way and meet so many people who are so passionate about their work.

What’s your favourite Beauty Bound Asia memory that you’ll always cherish as you continue in your journey as a Beauty Creator? 

My favourite Beauty Bound Asia memory would have to be the time when I was talking to Michelle Phan during the after-party and I had the privilege of learning so much from the conversation that we had. She complimented me on my videos and I have been holding on to that until today! She is definitely an inspiration and I am so beyond blessed to have met her during the trip!

SUPERPRINCESSJO - Singapore




What was the Beauty Bound Asia experience like? Was it everything you expected it would be? 

The experience was like a roller coaster ride! Throughout the competition, every round had [a] challenge video [we had] to submit. I always hoped [I could clear] the round so that I [could reach to the top] and globally represent Singapore & myself. It had a lot of learning experiences that helped me to feed my creative soul. 

What’s your top tip for budding creators out there who are hesitant to start their YouTube channel?

Be yourself don't be afraid to show and talk about your style and culture to the world. People want to know you and your life. Don't be afraid to share it and you will make life long new friends through this YouTube journey.

XANA PEA - Philippines




What was the Beauty Bound Asia experience like? Was it everything you expected it would be? 

It's everything I expected and so much more. It was surreal and may I say, every beauty creator's fantasy. The Beauty Bound Asia experience taught me a lot about myself, the world and the endless opportunities and possibilities, as long as you dream and give your best towards achieving that dream.

What’s your top tip for budding creators out there who are hesitant to start their YouTube channel?

Stop hesitating and start your channel now. Make videos that you are genuinely passionate about, continue doing so while keeping in mind that success doesn't always happen overnight. Keep on creating content that truly express your creativity, and soon, people will recognize the dedication that you put in every single video.

MAYJUNE TAN - Malaysia




What was the Beauty Bound Asia experience like? Was it everything you expected it would be? 

The competition made me recall the days back when I joined a star search reality show, the Star Idol Malaysia 2007 (Star Idol is an acting based competition organised by ntv7 which MayJune won). Everything was so new to me and the progress was full of experiments. I did vlogging style at the earlier stage for the online challenge and then I thought I should focus more on makeup skills at the finals, but also regretted that I should [have done more] acting for creativity marks. The trip to Tokyo was [also] amazing for me. [It was] full of excitements and surprises, though the schedule was very packed. However, I am really glad to know all the finalists from different countries and also the bright people who worked for Beauty Bound Asia. They are all awesome and passionate dreamers who work hard for the goals!

What’s your favorite Beauty Bound Asia memory that you’ll always cherish as you continue in your journey as a Beauty Creator?

The visit to the Meiji Shrine [and the] Harajuku Shopping experience were the best times. I found that those were the times we really talked to each other and [got to know] everybody, especially when we had lunch together. Some stories behind the finalists being YouTubers are quite encouraging. I've learnt that I am not alone at all. At times, I felt that I am only alone because my friends back in Malaysia are still in the traditional media (TV & Radio). It's time to make a change.

Invite our community to check out your channel! If you could describe your channel in 3 words, what would it be? 

I share knowledge from my experience in broadcasting, including makeup, hairstyles, beauty tips, nail art, and sometimes maybe some singing as well! I basically share everything I love! New videos are up every Thursday! Three words to describe my channel? That would be: Natural, lovingly-fun, and practical.

JAZZY TAN - Singapore




What was the Beauty Bound Asia experience like? Was it everything you expected it would be? 

It is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of experience which at the subscriber count I have, is a big thing! We don't usually have such YouTube events in Singapore so I was so ecstatic to be involved in Beauty Bound Asia! Pretty much, it is a competition and I expect all the finalists to want to win so there is a slight tinge of competitiveness; but I had such an eye-opening trip to Tokyo, having learnt some new things about Japanese culture - makeup style, fashion sense and behavioural patterns. Even though I did not win, I still came back with a ton of inspiration, video ideas, and clearer painting of how the industry is like.

What’s your favorite Beauty Bound Asia memory that you’ll always cherish as you continue in your journey as a Beauty Creator?

I will cherish the fact that my audience has been all-so-supportive and how they have risen to spare me 'thumbs ups' and encouraging comments in my videos when they saw I entered Beauty Bound Asia! The connection and interaction I have with my audience is so priceless and I feel like this 'performance stage' of mine would not be present if not for them. I am so grateful and will strive to make even more captivating videos my audience like...and apparently they really love my story time videos!

If you would like to be enlisted to the snazzy jazzy club, do know that my channel is all about me being "YOUR INTERNET GIRLFRIEND." I do story times (chit chats/girl talks), beauty-related makeup and hauls, and a little bit of vlogs too!

KRISSELL LUMAGUI - Philippines




What was the Beauty Bound Asia experience like? Was it everything you expected it would be? 

It has been an awesome platform for me to showcase my talent and skills in doing makeup. I love how Beauty Bound Asia is not restricting us when it comes to product placements and we are free to give our honest opinions.

What’s your top tip for budding creators out there who are hesitant to start their YouTube channel?

Listen to your inner voice! Don't mind what others will say or think about you. Remember that someone out there will benefit from your talent.

At the recent Cream Silk event we attended, we got to learn from four beauty experts how you can cut your beauty routine in half without sacrificing the quality of the finished look. Beauty editor Agoo Bengzon, MEGA magazine Editor-In-Chief Peewee Reyes-Isidro, Happy Skin co-founder Rissa Mananquil-Trillo, and celebrity hairstylist Raymond Santiago were all there to give us tips and tricks on how to turn our good looks, into great ones!

We all know how time is precious when getting ready. Most days, we usually just throw on our go-to looks and rush out the door! And since we’re always in a rush, we need clothes and beauty products that can be used in more than one way. So if you’re like us busy bees, or you just want to learn how to create an amazing look with little time, here are 4 ways you can do to double up your beauty!

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


Use a lip and cheek tint

Nothing says “healthy” than flushed cheeks and rosy lips! So instead of using 3 products — a blush, a lipstick, and a makeup brush to blend — take a lip and cheek tint like Happy Skin's Lip & Cheek Mousse, dab it over your cheeks and lips, and blend with your own fingers! The warmth of your fingers will seamlessly spread and even out the colour for a natural and long-lasting finish!

Treat and condition your hair

Does straightening or curling your hair in the morning take up a lot of your time? And worse, does it damage it? To save time on your hair styling, just go natural and let your natural tresses shine through! Get that healthy, voluminous, and shiny crown we all want by using a 2-in-1 conditioner such as Cream Silk’s Daily Treatment Conditioner, which will rescue dry and damaged hair, and bring life back into it — allowing you to cut your hair styling (and in effect, your beauty routine) in half!


Use a versatile accessory

Accessories can always accentuate any look when worn the right way. Simple ones are usually the best because they never overwhelm an outfit, but at the same time they make it pop more. So to bring your next OOTD to the next level, take a skinny scarf and use it as a necklace, or a belt, or as a scarf! It will softly add dimension and colour to your outfit without making it look heavy or "too much".


Invest in your brows

While our hair is the true “face-framer,” brows come in second. And what better way to get brows on fleek than to use a lasting pencil and powder duo! The K-Palette Lasting 2-Way Eyebrow has a skinny pencil on one side to gently fill in your brows, while the other has a powder to set them in place and make them fuller! Full, neatly groomed brows will always make us look polished and sophisticated with minimal effort!

Nothing spells out ‘Christmas’ more than red lipstick. Why? Maybe it’s because it’s one of the two theme colours of the holiday, or it reminds us of love, or it might just be part of a global culture since red is such a timeless lip colour!

And while we may look fabulous wearing it, it can get catastrophic real fast, as well — it can stain your clothes, move to your teeth, fade throughout the night, and more. So to prevent all those, keep reading below for the 5 red lipsticks you should wear this holiday season that won’t budge, smudge, and disappear!

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


NARS Audacious Lipstick "Annabella"

No lipstick collection would be complete without at least one from NARS’ Audacious line. Their smooth, pigmented, and hydrating formula keep lips from drying out, while it’s satin-bordering-on-matte finish is right on trend. ‘Annabella,’ a warm-toned poppy red, will brighten up any look you put together with its intense pigmentation! If you’re worried about staining or disappearing, don’t be, as Audacious lipsticks are renowned for lasting for hours on the lips!

MAC Lipstick "Russian Red"

Just as popular as MAC’s other red shade, “Ruby Woo,” this mid-toned neutral red (which we believe is a "truer red") comes in a matte finish for that chic, velvet look! Its creamy texture makes it a dream to apply and provides lips with a bit of hydration so it won't be as dry as the Sahara Desert at the end of the night, and won't accentuate lip lines! Yay!


Burberry Lip Velvet Lipstick “Honeysuckle”

For those who are still afraid of wearing reds, then the Burberry Lip Velvet Lipstick in "Honeysuckle" is for you! A soft peachy-red that is both lightweight and creamy, you can never go wrong with this shade. It may be a matte lipstick, but this one still gives a bit of a sheen on the lips for a healthy and natural look!


Estee Lauder Pure Envy Liquid Lip Potion “Lethal Red”

With just about every brand coming out with their own version of liquid lipsticks, it can be overwhelming to choose which to buy. But Estee Lauder’s version stands out from the rest with its fluffy, light-as-air texture that won’t dry out your lips (which many liquid lipsticks do). This vibrant warm lippie will wear for hours on end, and you can get the opacity and pigmentation you want with just one swipe!


Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar Lipstick “Red Blossom”

The gradation lip trend is taking over the beauty world by storm, so if you’re into that natural, soft, sheered out lip, then this Two Tone Lip Bar in “Red Blossom” by Lineage is your guy! Now you can get pillowy ombre lips just in time for Christmas with this lipstick — its hydrating and extremely pigmented texture clings to the lips, so you can say goodbye to transferring, and hello to long-lasting!
