How We Do Our Everyday Makeup (2018)

If you were as excited as we were last year for this one makeup launch, here's a review about the products! We're super lucky to be one of the people who got to have the first glimpse of the Gigi x Maybelline collection. Last October 2017, the number one global makeup brand, Maybelline New York, dropped one of its biggest collections to date in collaboration with none other than its very own global IT girl, Gigi Hadid. Since then, it has disrupted the global and local makeup industry with millions of girls obsessed over every product in the collection.

The three-part makeup line captured Gigi's deeply personal and exciting life, drawing inspiration from the experiences and places dear to the Maybelline spokesmodel's heart. The West Coast Collection revealed golden hues and shades of raving reds representing Gigi's sunny California hometown, while the East Collection unveiled crave-worthy nude lippies and eye makeup to bring out fiercely-winged cat eyes for day-to-night looks inspired by Gigi's second home, New York City. And then there was the Jetsetter Palette which was in a league of its own with its all-in-one palette which Gigi herself shares to have all the makeup essentials every girl would need as they travel from coast to coast. Within barely a month of hitting our local shores, the collection has been sold out as the collaboration had Filipinas stirred up, swarming select Maybelline counters nationwide offering the limited-edition makeup collection — and it shows no signs of slowing down.

Today, we show you an updated everyday makeup for the on-the-go girl. Here are the products we used.

Our everyday makeup usually consists of a concealer, a cheek stain, a mascara, a brow product, and a lip balm when we're in such a hurry. Those are our makeup must-haves and then we're good to go! For us, the eye area, cheeks, and lips are the most important because they frame your face. 

On Candis:

BB Cushion in Fair
Jetsetter Palette (for eyes, contour, blush, and highlight)
Brow Pencil in Dark Brown
Matte Lipstick & Lip Liner in Erin

I don't usually use highlighter or contour because it doesn't usually last the whole day and it's too bothersome to reapply since I'm always on the go. But the Jetsetter Palette's highlighter made me change my mind. As you can see in the photo above, my face is glowing. Also the blush on the palette is really good it lasted for the whole day which is quite impressive. I had never found a blush powder that can last a day without having the need to retouch or reapply. 

On Daphne:

West Coast Eyeshadow Palette in Warm
Liquid Eyeliner in Black
Fiber Mascara in Black
Matte Lipstick & Lip Liner in Taura

I'm not really a fan of eyeliner, and I seldom use one. But this is a first, I super love how easy the brush glides on my eyelid, how the product doesn't smudge, and how it made my face seem brighter. Now I really see the difference when you use eyeliner, even for an everyday look. For sure, this is going in my everyday makeup bag! 

Visit Maybelline counters in SM Department stores and Watson's branches nearest you and cop the lip kits from the East Coast collection in gorgeous nudes for everyday wear BEFORE THEY GET SOLD OUT AND BE GONE FOREVER — McKall, Taura, and Erin — and the bright red bolds from the West Collection — Lani, Khair, and Austyn.

Much love,
Candis & Daphne
