So Pretty: IN2IT Pearl Powder Bricks in BEB 03 Radiance

Fighting last month’s birthday planning woes with a dose of pretty!

Has it really been a month since I was officially kicked off the calendar? :D Adding (yet) another year is usually not a big deal to me but let’s face it — as we age, we also have to be wiser and in our terms, more accomplished. I was toying on my Timehop and I can’t believe how many places I’ve been to the last 365 days! I’ve met so many new souls, nommed on so many good food, and blessed in countless ways! :)

Still in lieu of aging (gracefully, I hope!), I’ve finally come to terms with my closet and makeup boudoir. The last 3 weeks has been challenging because I committed to myself that this is the year when I have to zero into a style I’ll truly stick with for both my OOTDs and makeup. Brows are hopefully all fleeked up, trousers tailored, and lips doused in caramel, berry, or wine hues. I’ve never really been into blush as much as lippies but the whole strobing trend is really up my ante. I have managed to hoard on a LOT of highlighters the last 3 months and this is one of my fave finds:

I can’t get over this super pretty pan! It’s super fun to look at and used with a light hand is just as flattering as most of my high-end luminizers. At less than Php 500 (I forgot how much this cost me), I’m a happy camper!

Here's the preppy chic “look” I’m trying to stick with. The IN2IT Pearl Powder Bricks in BEB 03 Radiance was quite a workhorse in this photo as I used it both on my lids and cheeks.

Are you into the strobing trend too? What’s your favourite luminizer and why?
