Maximize your lip and cheek tint for a healthy and natural look

If there’s one makeup product that can easily give you that instant glow, it’s the popular lip and cheek tint. Even better, Ever Bilena has made the product much easier to apply with the new EB Lip and Cheek Roller (P125).

The country’s leading makeup brand offers tips on how to maximize the EB Lip and Cheek Roller like a professional:

Bring and use it everywhere. EB Lip and Cheek Roller is convenient to use anytime, anywhere as it comes in roller form to avoid messy application. It can also be your ‘make-up-on-the-go’ because it can fit in your small bags and pouches.

Use it for your lips. Achieve healthy-looking lips by prepping with a lip exfoliation product to remove dry skin. You can also swipe gloss over lips or blend with moisturizer to ensure that your lips are soft and smooth the whole day. Make sure your lips are clean and dry before applying the tint. For a more fun and playful look, try the gradient lip. Dab the EB Lip and Cheek Roller at the center of your lips then smack them together to blend the color towards the edges. Top with your concealer or foundation and add more tint to the center if the color is too light. With clean fingers or a brush, blend the edges to soften the look.

Blush for your cheeks. EB Lip and Cheek Roller is a water-based product than can easily dry upon application. To avoid patchy or uneven application, roll the product first on the back of your clean hand. Using your index, middle and ring fingers together (Note: Wash your hands before doing this  and wipe roller clean after every use), dab tint from your hand to your cheeks then blend upwards from apples of cheeks towards hairline for a more natural flushed look. You can also pat some over the bridge of the nose for the “drunk blush” look.

Tint for your eyes. EB Lip and Cheek Roller works as an eyeshadow too! For a monochromatic look, dab your clean ring finger on your preferred tint shade and then lightly pat and blend it on your eyelids. Be sure to work fast as it dries easily. For more depth, play around with the different shades. Use the lightest pink shade all over the eyelids as a transitional color and then apply the darker pink shade from the outer corner of the lids, blending inwards for a more seamless makeup look.

Care for your tint. EB Lip and Cheek Roller is FDA-approved. It is also Paraben-free, fragrance- and flavor-free. To maintain its quality, store your roller tints in a cool, clean and dry place. Also, it is best to avoid sharing roller tints for hygienic reasons.

The EB Lip and Cheek Roller is available in Uptown Red, Night Berry and Red to Go. New shades have also been developed for other skin tones – Mandarin Muse, Toast of New York, Whipped Blush, Coral Crush and Red Bomb.

The EB Lip and Cheek Roller is available at any Ever Bilena counter in leading supermarkets, drugstores, convenience stores and department stores nationwide.

5 travel fails to avoid

Make travel insurance a part of your travel checklist. Get protection from Smart Traveller of Charter Ping An, a subsidiary of AXA, a leading global insurer.

Traveling is such a wonderful thing! It helps you appreciate different cultures and teaches you so many lessons that aren’t taught in the classroom. But to make each trip truly meaningful, you have to prepare very well for it.

But even seasoned travelers may run into unforeseen setbacks. Here is a list of common travel fails and what to do in case you find yourself in one.

  1. Missed flight or other modes of transportation

Missing your flight or other transfers can be very stressful and costly as it can change your itinerary. But don’t panic! Find out your options, such as travel alternatives to your destination.

Be flexible, too! Know your schedule to give yourself ample time to prepare. While it’s good to have an itinerary, it’s also helpful to have a flexible schedule so you can immediately adjust to unforeseen circumstances.

  1. Lost luggage

Make your luggage easily identifiable by adding some personal touches, like a luggage cover protector or bag tags with your name and address. If the airline loses your luggage, report it immediately. Have the basic necessities and at least one set of clothes in your carry-on bag to tide you over as you wait for your luggage. If the airline is unable to recover your bag, your travel insurance can help.

Make travel insurance a part of your travel checklist. Get protection from Smart Traveller of Charter Ping An. Not only will it provide protection for your personal belongings, it also comes with a wide range of benefits, including 24-hour medical assistance, personal accident coverage, liability and personal safety coverage, and even refunds for unexpected expenses. Application is easy! Visit the AXA website (www.axa.com.ph/charterpingan/smart-traveller) and choose the ideal coverage for your trip. Eligible applicants must hold Philippine identification documents like birth certificate, long-term visa pass, dependent or student pass, and employment certificate for adults 18 to 70 years old.

  1. Luggage overload

Lugging  heavy suitcases as you chase after a bus or train or try to catch your flight makes travel more difficult, stressful, and even costly because it could mean paying extra for excess baggage. Pack light by choosing clothes that are suitable for any situation and occasion. Bring only the most essential. Have your toiletries in miniature containers and carry your jacket instead of putting it in your bag.

  1. Lost/missing travel documents

Travelers who are rushing may misplace things like passports or other important documents. When that happens, remember to keep calm and immediately ask for assistance from the nearest embassy or consulate. Keep electronic and paper copies of your passport and other necessary documents with you, and constantly check your valuables wherever you go.

  1. Cash shortage

Having cash is the easiest way to pay for things when traveling, but if you’re not careful, you can run low on cash before the end of your trip. To make your cash last long, bring a refillable water container so you don‘t have to buy bottled water, or shop at local stores for affordable and authentic local cuisines. Create a daily budget for your trip and stick to it. Have a credit card for emergencies.

Traveling is a good investment. Enjoy a hassle-free vacation and always be protected by availing of Smart Traveller now. For more information, visit http://www.axa.com.ph.

This prestigious Awards system is exclusive to the Haute Grandeur brand, and considered without equal because of its method.

The Haute Grandeur Global Hotel Awards promise to raise service delivery levels by means of awarding only the very best in the industry.

Myths and facts about weight-loss supplements

HBOFGC

Losing weight requires a lot of dedication and hard work and may involve physical and emotional costs. It is hardly surprising that many prefer the easy route by taking weight-loss supplements. While almost all weight-loss supplements are marketed as beneficial for the body, some may actually be harmful to one’s health.

Nutrition experts debunk certain claims about weight-loss supplements and reveal possible health risks.

Myth #1: Weight-loss supplements are approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Truth: The US FDA does not have the authority to review dietary supplement products for safety and effectiveness before they are marketed. It only steps in when a “dietary supplement” is found to contain harmful substances.

Myth #2: Weight-loss supplements alone are enough to lose pounds.

Truth: Weight-loss supplements cannot substitute for healthy eating and regular exercise. Many weight-loss supplements’ labels include a disclaimer that they do not guarantee a specific weight-loss benefit, that individual results may vary and, to get the most benefit, they must be combined with proper diet and exercise.

Myth #3: Supplements like Hoodia, green tea and bitter orange aid in weight loss.

Truth: Green tea, bitter orange and the African herb hoodia have not been scientifically proven to burn fat. In fact, hoodia has not been studied in humans. It is also unclear if it curbs appetite. Green tea contains a fair amount of caffeine, which may result in some weight loss initially, but it will not burn fat. Too much caffeine can affect the heart rhythm and disturb sleep. Bitter orange has synephrine, an alkaloid found in plants, that can be dangerous to health as it increases heart rate and blood pressure.

Myth #4: “Natural” is safe.

While some supplements may result in weight loss in the short term, they may have long-term adverse effects on the body, which may not be able to handle the stress of dramatic weight loss or process artificial food and supplements. They may be unsafe for those with existing medical conditions or those who need to lose a lot of weight.

If you feed your body the right kinds of food, avoid unhealthy snacks and adopt other healthy habits, you should be able to rebalance and reboot your metabolism naturally. Nothing beats fresh and good food to improve health and promote healthy weight loss.
