I've been receiving a lot of questions about my current hair dye lately. So, I thought 'hey, I might as well include it in my blog' y'know? I'll be talking about that on the latter part of my post, though. For now, I want to show you guys my Peachy Smokey Makeup Look! So, without further ado, here it is! (ﾉ^ヮ^)ﾉ*:・ﾟ✧
Here's a close up for eye makeup:
I prefer to wear a more natural makeup on the eyebrow. Not really a fan of the trendy overdrawn eyebrows. I don't hate it, it's just that I prefer to do mine this way. :)
And of course, here's some selfie of me enjoying the makeup look （。＞ω＜）。
I'm inlove with peach shades!

And here's a comparison of me before and after makeup :3 where the makeup shamers at?
So there's this Filipina celebrity that has gone viral recently because of makeup shaming on social media. Well here's my take on it and to those who are fond of makeup shaming.
Yes, I'm not naturally pretty. I just know how to use the power of makeup to look and feel beautiful. In fact, I'm a lot more "myself," not to mention that my confidence goes from a 2 to 10 when I wear it. Makeup is an art. It's one of my ways of expressing myself. So why the hate? We all know that not everyone is born pretty. If you are, then lucky you! But for us who are not; makeup could be one of our resorts in concealing our insecurities. I always look down when I'm barefaced because I honestly hate my flat nose, and how big my face is. In fact, I've experienced bullying about these imperfections. But with a touch of a brush, a noseline and contour is born, and I can confidently keep my head up while walking. I can even slay and conquer with it. Haha~
I know a lot of you have been bullied for not being pretty. And now that we're actually doing something about it, we're still being shamed for trying our best to be pretty enough! Isn't it ironic? Well, that's society for you. *sigh* I just hope that the majority of us would be more open about this issue. Stop makeup shaming! Whatever other people say, LOOKS DO MATTER. It may not to some of you, but the truth is, majority of us do. So if makeup helps us belong to the "pretty" category, don't you dare bring us down. If you don't want to put makeup on, then that's fine. By the way, I'm not mad or anything. I just feel like I gotta speak up about this issue. I need to defend myself and my fellow makeup junkies out there. I hope everything that I said made sense to all of you. I rarely post something like this so I'm really sorry :(
Anyhow, let's now talk about frequently asked questions about my current hair ﾍ(ﾟ∇ﾟﾍ)
*Where did you have your hair done? (Saan ka nagpakulay ng buhok?)
- Just here lang sa bahay with the help of my cousin, Nami.
*Where did you buy the hair dye? (Saan mo nabili yung pang kulay ng buhok?)
- Nabili ko po siya sa HairyTrends Colour by Maricris Garcia-Ganda. I highly recommend the products from her shop especially the Keratin! I can't imagine my life without it huhu the best hair product for me! It made my super extremely dry hair to slightly dry na lang. Haha~ Wala eh, ganun talaga when your hair is bleached. You have to accept that its gonna be dry forever~
*Do I need to bleach to achieve hair color like yours? (Kailangan ko ba mag bleach para ma-achieve yung color tulad ng sayo?)
- Definitely! My hair was from super pale yellow kaya ganyan kinalabasan kitang kita yung color gray.
*How many times do I have to bleach? (Ilan beses ko kailangan mag bleach?)
- Depends on your hair. If your hair is super black like mine then you might need to bleach 3 times. Mine usually takes 3-4 times to achieve the pale blonde. Pero if your hair is somewhere brown to light brown siguro it would take 1-2 bleach. Depends po talaga sa hair niyo.
*Do you do hair color services? (Natanggap ka ba ng pakulay ng hair?)
- Sorry but no. I only do hair and makeup services po :( but you can try Maricris Ganda-Garcia! She's good in that field! Super duper love her works ❤
PS. This is not sponsored by Maricris. I just love her products and I'm a fan of hers ❤
Just for your additional info here's how my hair looks before dying it with gray:
It's pale yellow already. So basically, the "base" color of my hair is already light that's why it's easier to dye my hair with any color. From really pale pastels to dark.
But if your hair is dark.. let's say you want to apply the same color as mine. It won't appear the same because the "base" of your hair is dark. I hope I made sense. Haha! It's pretty hard to explain as I'm not usually good at explaining things.
Here's how it looks right after we finished dying my hair:
Hahaha sorry for my isang kilong eyebags (⌯˃̶᷄ ﹏ ˂̶᷄⌯)ﾟ
My hair was initially dark greyish blue. Must be because I let the hair dye sit for 3 hours. But it became this with just one wash:
It started to fade. And it looked like this after 3 washes:
The perfect ombre grey!! Achieved (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧
That's it! I hope I somehow helped those who want to achieve the granny hair~
Goodluck ╭(๑ ॔ㅂ ਂ ॓)و ̑̑
