Or why Filipino Beauty Bloggers are rare.
Do you Beautiful Blossoms adjust your makeup to the change in season? This is a concept I’ve never understood, as I view makeup as a form of self-expression regardless of the weather. Lately I’ve been seeing berry lip colors in accordance with Fall.
I kinda figured I’d see more of the orange spectrum. But having lived in a country where the only seasons were fry-and-bake-in-the-sun or get-soaked-to-the-bone rain for a good chunk of my life, I doubt I will ever understand the need to adjust one’s makeup to the season. And that’s okay.
As for the other half of the title, it’s true. There aren’t any mainstream Filipino beauty bloggers out there (at least, as mainstream as the ones on YouTube). PatrickStarrrrr can be counted, but his style is more suited for drag performance. What about the everyday girl or woman?
ItsJudysLife can be counted as well – she is Filipino too and she’s fairly mainstream. But holy cow, the criticisms on her…
That and in the Philippines, makeup is a luxury only celebrities and high-income people who live in the higher altitudes can afford. You go anywhere below Baguio or the mountain areas, your makeup won’t last past 12. It’s that hot there. It’d be kinda nice to have a rep in the beauty community though.
