How to enhance your naturally fair skin (plus get a chance to win a shopping spree from Palmolive!)

Fair-skinned girls are lucky in the sense that they can pull off a wider range of colors. Anything from pastels to jewel tones look good on fair skin! But, the basics first! If you have fair skin, here are a few tips on how to enhance it with makeup.  

1. Wear pink! Pink is a bright and cheery color that anyone can pull off. If you wear coordinating blush, lips, and nails, the pink will bring out your skin’s cooler (lighter) tones. If you have warm/yellow undertones, go for warm shades like hot pink and fuchsia. If you have cool undertones, go for blue-based and/or pastel pinks.

Anyways, I would just like to present Majolica Majorca's latest collection: Psychedelicious! It's like a vivid candy fantasy brough to life in the form of makeup goodies. There are new products like a shimmery, fragrant body powder and a brow mascara. Check 'em out!

The BAYO What's Your Mix ad campaign

The new BAYO campaign is getting some buzz on Facebook and Twitter. There's a photo going around that explains the new campaign. Read!

Bigger photo here

Okay okay, save yourself the eye strain and just read the pertinent paragraph, the first one:

What's your mix? This is just all about MIXING and MATCHING. Nationalities, moods, personalities, and of course your fashion pieces. Call it biased, but the mixing and matching of different nationalities with Filipino blood is almost a sure formula for someone beautiful and world class. We always have that fighting chance to make it in the world arena of almost all aspects. Be it Fashion. Music. Science and Sports. Having Filipino lineage is definitely something to be proud of.

Let's not overreact and call the people behind the campaign racist etc. I think that they just communicated their message poorly with rambling and inane copy (if the above is indeed the official press release).
