If you are same with me who sometimes buy makeup from a grocery or drugstore, I am guessing you already heard or seen this new product of Myra called the VitaGlow BB Cream. Sure, I do have a few expensive creams and lipsticks in my stash, but I know how to patronize a cheaper item after I tested it and liked what it does to my skin. So came this new Myra VitaGlow BB Cream that comes in a 20 ml for only P99. It is available in two shades, the first shade is ivory, and below is beige.
I am not a makeup expert so for the step by step guide on how to properly apply Myra VitaGlow BB Cream on your face, here is a little help from Ana Victorino, a popular YouTube makeup and beauty blogger.
I have to honestly say that I didn't exactly follow this tutorial, though. No using of the ivory variant by mixing it with the beige one, I also didn't use a brush in applying the cream to my face. Okay shhh.. I did the contrary 'cos I was lazy and in a hurry. Hahaha.
Dyarann!! How do I look? This is my version of a 5 minute 'barely there' makeup.
Look at my bare face, BB cream face, and my full makeup face in these photos and see the difference that the VitaGlow BB Cream created. I got a lot of good comments in Facebook regarding this makeup. A friend said I'm looking great. Another friend commented that I'm fresh and blooming. Hmmm.. I think I'll have to make this a routine because it really made my face look glowing.
For a mom like me who is always in hurry, the use of a BB cream is really a must, skipping the application of moisturizer, foundation, and concealer. It is also economical because it saves me from spending money on those extra products I mentioned. If I can always do my makeup in 5 minutes or less, I am sure husband will be happy and won't complain about me taking too much time in preparing to go somewhere, too!
