Everyone was soooo excited to be doing the makeup buffet! The best thing about FitMe! is that they decided to bring in a very very healthy selection of shades so that more or less every Filipina can find her shade. They have 30 shades over 4 product formats, so I’m sooo sure there is something!!!
If you look, you’ll see Sara Black’s equipment! That day we all had the privilege of having our photos taken by Sara herself! I’ll be sharing photos once available!!!
This is why they are super proud to unveil their 10 Filipina makers. Maybelline chose 10 admirable Filipinas in different fields to be ambassadresses for the brand slogan.
Gosh she is soooo pretty in person!!! It’s no wonder why all her competitors were sooo insecure about her because she’s so pretty that it’s really hard to get a bad shot. She and Liza Soberano share the same talent of looking good no matter what the shot. Even when she’s talking or even if it’s a stolen shot, she never takes a bad photo. Now that’s a model.
And here are the 10 ambassadresses. They come from various industries and fields, all fueled by self determination to make it happen.
I know it’s not so apparent in this photo, and also because the powders apply a bit more sheerly compared to the other powders than Maybelline. But I like that there is a real progression from light to deep so that those who are buying the darkest shades of the foundation releases also will have a powder to go with it. Under the current Maybelline collections, the lightest 2 and darkest 2 shades of this powder collection is not represented. This is why by having this collection, marginalized people (aka ghosts like me and those with deep skintones) can have a genuinely fitting powder.
And this is a photo of the battlefield. This was the tester table, and as such, people were swatching like crazy. I had to patiently wait for most people to go home before I could swatch in peace.
And of course, part of the event is trying the products ourselves. They had makeup artists come over so we can find our fit.
I immediately asked for the lightest shades to be used on me wahaha. 120 is the lightest shade they brought in for liquid foundation, but I use 112 at home. 112 is a bit too light, but I think my perfect shade is 115. I’m not worried because when I’m at home I’ll mix 112 and 120 to get the perfect shade for me.
And thankfully, they brought in 110 for the stick foundation so I don’t think I need to adjust for that!
Makeup artist and I having a blast. I guess she got tired of how much stories I had to share hahaha. And yes that’s Kaycee photobombing us hahaha. I already came to the event with full makeup, so it was more of a replacement of face makeup. FitMe! is known for being lightweight and for having medium coverage, so it’s meant to be natural and not overwhelming for most makeup beginners. This is why it looks like I don’t have much makeup on.
And here’s a proper photo with her after the session. I requested for her to mix Powder Mattes Barely There and Creamy Mattes Touch of Spice and I like the results. We no longer did contouring because I feel that I’m just too pale for the contour products on hand that day. I use V-Face duo powder at home and just dust it on very very lightly nowadays because I feel like we’re moving on from contouring to strobing nowadays.
And wee, here’s a photo of me with Sara Black! I’m sooo excited to see my portraits!!!
