Day to Night in ZALORA

These days, I've been drawn to clothes that you can take from day to night so when I put together this look from ZALORA, I knew I had a winner. It starts with this sheer turtleneck black top with tiny polka dot detailing, which made me swoon at first sight. It was the first thing in my cart. Then I took this velvet baby pink slip on dress and wore it over the to. Talk about combining a feminine piece with an edgy top, right? For accessories, I wore my new black cross body purse from VERSACE JEANS and my new black boots with pearl and gold buckles, which I scored from ZALORA as well. Both are my current favorites so you'll be seeing a lot more of them in my future posts!

My Microblading Experience at Skin House Laser Clinic

Today on the blog, I'll be sharing with you guys my microblading experience at SKINHOUSE LASER CLINIC

Ever since I was a teen, one of my biggest insecurities has always been my barely-there eyebrows. In fact, drawing on my eyebrows was the very first makeup skill I learned and even after doing them for hundreds of times, drawing them can take so much time and effort.

So, when I heard of this thing called "microblading" I was definitely curious about it especially since it promises full, real-looking brows! Luckily, I was finally able to try this semi-permanent makeup thanks to SKIN HOUSE LASER CLINIC.


The entire process can take up to two to four hours and after your first session, you'll be required to comeback four to eight weeks after for a retouch session. First, the artist determines your brow shape solely based on your face shape and brow bone structure to create brows that perfectly suit you. The artist then creates a template by marking your brow area. By using a manual technique with ultra fine or nano blades to implant pigment under the skin, the artist recreates hyper realistic eyebrows.

I must admit, my first go at it was quite painful after the first round of strokes made with the blade. But after their anesthesia cream is applied, I could barely feel a thing anymore! I actually even took a short nap during my retouch session! (Hehe) I must say, a bit of "tiis-ganda" and lying on a bed for two to four hours was definitely WORTH IT!

I love how my brows are full, pigmented and go really well with my face shape. It has also literally cut my makeup routine in half too! For casual days and errands, all I need is just some powder, mascara, and lipstick and I'm good to go!



The great thing about getting your brows done at SKIN HOUSE LASER CLINIC, is that you're guaranteed that the treatment will be performed by an Internationally Certified Artist with training in Beauty Recipe Singapore and under Phibrows Academy London. They offer the microblading service at an affordable rate of PHP15,000 which already includes the touch-up session.

If you're looking for a solution to thin or patchy eyebrows, you definitely should try MICROBLADING by SKIN HOUSE LASER CLINIC!
