Two things I love: writing and makeup. This blog is a perfect marriage of both- I get to write about any beauty product I want. I’m a late bloomer to both skin care and cosmetics. I only ever got interested in them after I gave birth (and gained weight and skin problems), but once I got a taste, I was hooked. I love the way a shimmery little blush can make me feel and look instantly happier. I love how makeup gives me a boost of confidence and lets me experiment with different looks. I think I’ll always be interested in learning new techniques, tips, and trying out new products…especially those in cute, pretty packaging. I love drugstore prices, but I try not to discrimate based on the price tag. I used to be really into all-natural beauty products, and do still prefer those, but I’m open now to trying pretty much anything.

I live in Manila, Philippines. I’m proud to be Filipino. Besides being a beauty blogger, I’m also a mom and a wife. When I’m not writing about or playing with makeup, I’m changing diapers or preparing snacks. :)

I hope for the Filipina Makeup and Beauty Blog to be a warm, friendly community where fellow beauty lovers can engage in healthy discussion and share opinions and recommendations with one another.

If you have any questions or requests, our email is filipinamakeupandbeauty {at} gmail {dot} com.

    Hi Ida,

    I don’t find any link to subscribe to FMBB.

      Hi Nimi, there’s a small orange icon on the top right corner of the page, to subscribe to the rss feed. And then later on today or tomorrow there should also be an email subscription box added to the sidebar. :)

    hoe come when i use the search feature, it leads me to an indian make up blog?

    • Ida says:

      Hi Alyssa, the Indian Makeup and Beauty Blog is our sister blog, so our sites are interconnected. The search function yields results from both blogs.

    I am part of a group working on a project for L’Oreal for university in the UK and we’re looking at haircare in the Southeast Asian market. I’ve found your blog and we have really enjoyed reading it, we’d really love some insight into what you for in haircare products as a consumer and what you’re interested in. Would it be ok if we emailed you some questions so we can get your opinions and knowledge on the subject, as they would be very helpful and valuable?

    Thank you and look forward to hearing from you,
