What do you love about Southern Fashion (Mindanao)?
It's a fashionable-laid-back but classy sort of thing. I noticed people from the South aren't behind from the people dressing up in the north, the major cities in the country i.e. Manila and Cebu. We're not that afraid to dress up differently according to our different characters whether it be world music, tribal, indie, punk, metal, hard core etc. kind of style! And I love that we usually associate the way we dress with the kind of music that we love and are passionate about; we are united despite the differences in artistic preferences, we respect each other and we even hang together. It's, like, an artistic salad of fashion and music.
What was the last thing you bought?
Some Forever 21 blouses--I'm such a girl.
What would you never be caught wearing?
Shirts with imitated logos from big establishments, only with different titles. Really. Come on. STARBUKO?!--KMN.
What is the most prominent color in your wardrobe?
BLACK. Haha!
Which website do you visit daily?
If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you go?
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
What’s your motto?
Live a life worth remembering.
Any Fashion and Beauty Tips?
1. To look good, you have to feel good--and I mean feeling good about your health. The healthier you are, the more it shows! And that means eat right--less oily and processed food and more fresh fruits and vegetables and a good source of protein and, of course, exercise 30-45 minutes a day at least 4 times a week.
2. With dressing up... The key is BALANCE. Showing off all of your skin through skimpy dresses will make you look like a slut. If your wearing a short skirt or a short shorts (pekpek shorts), wear something with sleeves as a top. If you're wearing a tube/spaghetti strap/sleeveless top, wear knee length/long skirts or a pair of pants. Dress appropriately for certain occassions!
The same goes for the accessories: BALANCE. If you're wearing big bangles/earrings, there is no need for big necklaces--that sort of thing.
4. For the make-up, still, BALANCE. If you have thick/dark eyeshadows, go easy on the lips and vice versa. And don't be afraid to experiment with colors as long as it's for the appropriate occasion. Don't forget to blend your eyeshadows the right way, either.
In using falsies, human hair looks more realistic, therefore more pleasing to the eye and more comfortable. smile
5. Don't forget to feed and exercise your brain with good information such as science, art, music, current events and at least a little bit of politics.
6. Love yourself. Stop being insecure 'cause that is the most unattractive personality, ever.
7. The best beauty tip: Keep your feet on the ground. Treat everyone equally, regardless of their job titles or their social status and love them as you would yourself. Always remember that we are all made equal.
