Cosmetics were created to enhance a woman’s features, which has done since the era of Cleopatra. Some women however, mistakenly believe you have to slap it on with more layers than an oil painting. Ladies: if Rupaul is looking better than you, you know you have a problem.
1. The myth that red lipstick goes with everything is just that, a myth. If you go out with just pale skin , bare eyes and red lips, you end up looking like Morticia Adams if you are lucky or sadly more often than not, The Joker.
2. There can be too much of a good thing, smokier eyes than a raccoon and more lashes than a Kardashian. Halloween only comes once a year.
3. Then there are those who are perennially stuck in the 80s. Blue eye shadow, green eye liner. . . you get the picture. . .even Cyndy Lauper has ditched that look , suggest you do too.
4. In a country where people are obsessed with paler skin than a Geisha, women who go overboard with the bronzer stand out in a crowd. If we can only see the whites of your teeth in a club, you know you have too much on.
Hire a make up artist, take lessons, enhance your features be it your eyes or lips. . . although if you don’t have any suggest you stock up on paper bags. . .
LONDON IN FULL BLOOM: An Exclusive Look at the recent Chelsea Flower Show
The Chelsea Flower Show in London, one of the most prestigious horticultural events in the world, returned in full glory in May 2023, captivating visitors with its stunning displays and landscape designs. Held annually on the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea in London, this year’s show proved to be a true feast for the senses, showcasing an array of breathtaking gardens, vibrant floral arrangements, and innovative landscaping. The 3-day event showcased 36 outdoor gardens, including four balcony gardens for small spaces. Inside the giant pavilion, blooms compete with each other, exotic flowers, roses, and many more.
The 2023 Chelsea Flower Show embraced a Nature’s Harmony theme, with a strong focus on sustainability and mental health. The show’s organizers emphasized the importance of sustainable gardening practices and biodiversity conservation, inspiring attendees to create beautiful outdoor spaces while preserving and protecting the environment.
What’s Cebu got to do with the Chelsea Flower Show in London? One person. James Doran Webb (https://www.jamesdoranwebb.co.uk), an Englishman working with driftwood, has been displaying his artworks for several years. James collects cast-off driftwood and shapes them into beautiful animal shapes that find places in some of the most iconic gardens. Leaping horses, owls, reindeer, and the occasional dragon, James Webb’s creations are avidly collected by landscapers to add accent to gardens in all sizes, using cast-off wood, fitting perfectly with the sustainable element—something Mr. Webb has done quite well for the last decade.
The Philippine International Flower Festival will be held at the PICC in Manila from January 14 to 18, 2024. Watch out for more info from our website!
