100Magazine (The Distinct Style Issue)

Genius. That's the word I use to describe 100 Magazine which will never run out of subjects, living or non-living, tangible or intangible, to feature. I'm a sucker for lists, and I know many others who are too whether they admit it or not. I kinda like the idea of pulling this magazine out of a pile of back issues in case I need a run-down or quick sum-up of the noteworthy for when I play host to people visiting the Philippines. Keeping true to it's tradition, 100Mag releases double-covers, usually male and female counterparts. For the DISTINCT STYLE issue, Tim Yap goes head to head (sporting a new mohawk, no pun intended) with Daphne Osena-Paez.

behind-the-scenes pics I took

  1. Start with Shu Uemura's UV underbase to brighten & perk up the complexion.
  2. Multi-task with Cinema Secrets cream concealer/foundation to even out the skin tone and hide undesirables such as under eye discoloration and blemishes.
  3. Set with a wet/dry powder foundation either from MAC or Shu Uemura, spritz on water via a fine mist spray. This lessens the too-made-up look and softens the expression.
  4. Layer on a nude/beige lipstick, set with lip liner and gloss of the same shade for depth. To try: Shu Uemura 907+Sally Hansen lip plumping gloss.
  5. Tarte cheek stain in Flush for I-just-drank-a-glass-of-red-wine effect.
  6. Rim the eyes (up and down) with a navy blue matte eyeliner from Revlon, a less severe, less expected alternative to boring black.
  7. Set eye liner with a metallic brown powder eye shadow for a soft smoky effect.
  8. Coat lashes with Cover Girl exact eye lights waterproof mascara in black pearl.
  9. Brush brows in place with Shu Uemura's eyebrow manicure in palm beige and fill in bald spots, extend the brow line with Shu Uemura's eyebrow pencil in acorn.
  10. Create the illusion of thicker brows by finishing with MAC's beguile tinted eyebrow gel.
