Beauty Blogging in Cebu and Makeup Tutorials

I’ve written before how fashion blogging in Cebu has propagated into a community that is beyond overwhelming. Everything everyone publishes is always an instant hit and the bestsellers are the ones that transcend the norm, the “we-don’t-need-to-look-like-everyone-else” pose and the head-to-toe fashion photography. But have you met the girls (if you know men, please please email me) who blog about cosmetics, skin care and health? The girls who take photos of their wrists swarthed with makeup or the back of their hand smeared with all kinds of creams and lacquer?

Ayayay. Beauty blogging is indeed another niche, my friends. It is almost as tasking as taking head to toe shots because not only we want to show off how the cosmetic appears on our skin but also how the cosmetic appears on our skin when taken with flash!

A few months back I met the girls behind the swatches and the awesome photography and we couldn’t believe how much we all have in common! Raine brought with her the coveted Naked Palette from Urban Decay and we ogled over it like she was brandishing an engagement ring (Raine is married, so don’t get excited). Noe and Janah shared how they post their videos on YouTube and everyone was agog at their beauty and wit. I tell you, this is going to have a huge following! Do visit their blogs when you have the time! Only Holly and I didn’t have a solo photo! Ooops!

If you write a blog about makeup and skin care, we would love to link up! Or if you write a blog at all – I really, really encourage everyone to blog! If you’re looking to purchase make up, try looking with coupons for Macys!
