I was so looking forward to going to SM Aura for the very 1st BDJ Box Beauty Social for 2014. Dubbed as Tres Chic, this event gathers some of the best beauty brands all in one place, add the best beauty gurus to conduct talks and have on the spot make-up and you have a place any woman would call heaven. Samasung Hall at SM Aura seems a bit smaller than SM The Block were the last Beauty Social was held, also I wondered why the place was dimly lit, but maybe it`s just me.
We came to the event with bare faces and wearing our #OFODD I opted to wear a dress I bought from Bayo, which is very unlike my usual style. Raffy likes to keep things casual.
Our first stop is Yves Rocher France booth We had a hard time trying to access our networks (globe/smart) because of the poor signal inside the Samsung Hall. Almost all the booths were giving freebies and sample of their products.
We get to cosplay as Spy Girl at the Benefit Cosmetics Booth I love the little suitcase and I wanted to take it home with me. lol
After our brief cosplay foray, we went on to get our separate make-overs.
Raffy having her nails done by Revlon, the nail polish are long lasting and scented.
Canmake Tokyo from Japan Is the brand I was most curious about. The packaging is just so cute and of course fashion icon and photographer Tricia Gosingtian is a fan of this brand is endorsement enough for me.
I got a free make-over, I was really aiming for a Japanese gyaru look which is something I feel I should try at least once. It took around 20 minutes or so for my face to be finished. I do love the products which surprisingly compliments my morena skin tone, they feel light on my face, almost as if I wasn’t wearing any make-up.
My Canmake Tokyo haul. The Marshmallow Finish Powder Foundation and the Glow Fleur Cheeks in Strawberry Fleur part of their summer collection.

Too Cool For School Make-over for Raffy
We wandered over to almost all the booths there was so much to see and to experience.
We were so distracted with all there is to see, we almost missed our talks!
We got to attend three, Picture Perfect with Canon Crusader Sara Black, Primed and Ready with Benefit Cosmetics`s Miakka Lim and Colors of Summer with Shiseido Maquillage Jessica Villapando
I also get to see the hard working BDJ Team, The BDJBox Beauty Ministry, and my
favorite Beauty Bloggers!
This is me with Event Host, Make-up Artist, Motivational Speaker and Blogger extraordinaire Jasmine Mendiola, the Beauty Ministry Kate, Nicole and Tara, the BDJ Team and Beauty Blogger Liz Lanuzo (Project Vanity)
We also got the chance to swap our old mascara for the new CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion Water Resistant Mascara, I also got to see The Makeup Maven, Sab Hernandez in person!
The BDJ Events will always be a special for me and Raffy, a time for us to bond, as mom and daughter, sometimes as just best friends. I am grateful to Viviamo Inc. for organizing these fun events for us to meet new friends, catch up with new ones learning new ways on how we should love appreciate ourselves and just be happy that we are born female, This event is not just a Beauty Social but it is also a place where no matter who we are, what we look like, will are made to feel loved and beautiful.
Until my next post!
