In a country that experiences an almost eternal summer, it’s difficult to reference seasonal changes. But our four day annual reason to get out of the car-invaded city of Manila (aka Holy Week) is a reminder that “summer" has arrived. As has our favourite mammoth beauty retailer, Sephora. You heard it, Sephora has it’s very own 'dot PH' and is now live online for your very own maquillage bliss. Because what is better than booking a flight to our neighbouring countries and finally walking into a Sephora store, list in hand? Well, using your fingers to do the walking and shopping from the comfort of your own home instead, that’s what. Inspired by our summer I, being the mad beauty junkie/hoarder/obsessee that I am, wanted to showcase three looks from the shores of pretty much one of the greatest islands in the world, Palawan. And here you have it.
