Wardrobe Inspiration: Finding Your Sense of Style

This has something that has been an idea for the longest time, and the reason why I have been putting this idea off is because to put it simply, I'm not that much of a writer. Nor am I someone who claims to be an expert of any kind. I'm just a random girl who loves to dress up, dress down, and is still figuring things out. Trust me. I don't know what I'm doing half of the time.

Also because I'm not someone who particularly good with words and that's why I love to focus on imagery, visuals and all that. I like looking at pictures and having it speak for itself.


But here we go, I decided to finally do it because I thought it would be fun to do and also because I think if I had known about this before, I wouldn't have donned many outfits I cringe over the years. But, then again, if it weren't for that, I wouldn't be making my choices now! So, it depends!

I don't claim to be an expert, but after years of trials and error, I think I narrowed down my sense of style and from the tips I will suggest, I think you can find the confidence to know what's best for you and how you want to dress.

Beauty Inspiration: Artista Beauties feat. Kathryn Bernardo, Nadine Lustre & Liza Soberano

Time and time again, I will say that Instagram has been such source of inspiration for me. Style, beauty, places, etc. I have done many posts before talking about some of my favourite Instagrams and all that.

So why not add another one. 

One thing I will say that is new (maybe, I can't really recall) is that I do have a thing with following make up artists or make up gurus in general! I like how they can display their work and also share what products they use. It helps me narrow things down too, it beats me from getting overwhelmed on what to choose for myself. 

Some of the ones that I really get inspiration the most is from the works of Philippine showbiz because yes, I'm on the artista bandwagon, and yes again, I'm a fan of a lot of them and how effortlessly beautiful and stylish they all are.

I have featured some artistas that I am a fan of on here before if you haven't seen yet. I did one of Kathryn and Kim Chiu's style, another one about being inspired by a particular MEGA Magazine shoot, and the most recent one is why I adore Nadine and how her Instagram feed gives me feels.

Here, I'm bringing you a board of my favourite looks that these gorgeous ladies have worn thanks to their make up artists.

Why I find such help from them in particular, is because I really can get a feel of what certain lips shades or how these products might look on me because, being a Filipino myself, I find I have the same skin tones and share similar features with them. So it's easier to compare a little bit because overall, every one will wear a particular shade in a different way based on your skin tone and the natural pigmentation of your lips. So again, it narrows it down in a way.

 Either way, it doesn't matter because it's what you can get inspired by is what matters. With the particular make up styles and how they wear it. Sometimes I'll see pictures seeing any one wear a particular shade of lipstick or an eye shadow I wouldn't dream of wearing myself, but seeing it on them makes me think otherwise! It's great and a great way to look for inspiration.

That's the beauty of make up that I love. The fact that is indeed so universal that literally, everyone can rock it in their own way, their own style.

I also really just wanted a space to collect all of my favourite looks too because every dose of inspiration is all I crave, especially in the beauty department.

Down below I curated a bunch (I'm not even lying, it took a long time!) of photos from each of the make up artists Instagram accounts. So, stop, hold your breath and soak in all the beauty because I cry sometimes on how beautiful these ladies really are. All of the individual photos I credited underneath in case you want to check out their feeds as well!

Wish List: Beauty Bits for Your Galentine

I'm a very much a single person, but that doesn't mean I hate Valentine's Day! I do love it due to the fact of all the decor and having to find the most cutest set of things in store displays ever.

So when one of my fave gals, Diana, from My Name is Not Diane (please follow her and take her blog a read because it is adorably amazing, charming and such as sweetheart!) decided to come up with a Galentine's Day guide with food, I mean cute right? I decided to go for the beauty route, because what's better than treating your gal pal (or even yourself) with a little pampering and looking fabulous?
