About the Blogger

One of the first bloggers I followed and read thanks to was Ms. Char's blog, YellowYum. She stays consistent in giving honest reviews of products and services. Her blogging voice and blogging style delivers authenticity that readers can relate to. I am also happy to be part of her journey to motherhood as a silent reader of YellowYum. When I started this humble Featured Blogger of the Week series I knew I have to invite Ms. Char. I feel so honored that she didn't hesitate to be featured in this blog. 

I had the privilege of meeting Ms. Char in person during the StyleHaul Dinner and she was so sweet and down to earth. And so without further ado please meet Ms. Char of YellowYum and get to know her more through her makeup bag. 

Inside Char of YellowYum's Makeup Bag

1. NLighten CC Cream: I just recently made a first impression video on this which I will be posting soon. I like using this when I don't have a concealer on hand because it covers quite well. (Purchase from

2. Heroine Make Smooth Cover Powder: I love this sooo much! It's indeed very smooth, matte and it just brightens my face a lot. I use #1 to set my concealer and also highlight. It works really great and was part of my favorites a couple months back. (

3. Revlon Nearly Naked: One of my most favorite photo-friendly liquid foundations! Consistency is wonderful and coverage is perfect for me. (

4. Maybelline White Super Fresh: My favorite powder because it keeps oiliness away and it helps me stay matte for a long time! Great for our Philippine weather. (

5. Celeteque Blush and Face Contour Kit: I like having an all-in-one product and this kit has everything you need for facer color. You get blush, highlight and contour! (

6. NYX Mosaic Powder in Paradise: Got this fairly recently and I really like mosaic powders because you can use only one color or swirl it all to get a new color!

7. Benefit Hoola Bronzer: Another oldie but goody! It gives just the right amount of bronzing and contour for my skin tone.

8. L'Oreal Brow Artist Genius Kit: My current favorite powder eyebrow product. Color is perfect, wax is useful, and it's very easy to use too! (

9. Majolica Majorca Lash King: I just started using this and I like how it lengthens my lashes and keeps the curl all day!

10. NYX HD Concealer in Beige: A great dupe for high end concealers, this gives really great coverage yet looks so natural on the skin. Can't believe I just learned about this recently. It's amazing! (

11. Burt's Bees Lip Balm: Since matte lipstick's a thing now, I always make sure to apply lip balm before putting any lipstick! And I love Burt's Bees lipbalms. They've got a lot of different variants specifically to target your needs. (

12. KPalette Real Lasting Eyeliner: My HG liquid eyeliner! I think that says a lot! This stays on even without any primer, really good color payoff too! (

13. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil: I love how this glides so smoothly and I really really like that I don't need an eye primer when I wear this. Also, the color payoff is out of this world! (

14. L'Oreal La Palette Nude in Rose: My current favorite eyeshadow palette. I rarely use pink eyeshadows because for some reason, I feel like my eyes look swollen, however, this palette is the best rose/pink/romantic palette I've tried! All the shades are very wearable and can be used from day to night. ( and

15. LIPSTICKS: I usually have 2-3 lipsticks in my purse everytime I go out. I would bring 2-3 different lip colors so I can change it up within the day depending on my mood.

A Quick Interview With Ms. Char

If there's one makeup product that should always have in your bag what is it and why?
- Setting/Finishing powder. I have combination skin so my tzone tends to get shiny within the day. I use a light setting or pressed powder just to touch up and remove excess oil.

Favorite makeup brand? Local?
-This is tough because I haven't really used a lot of local brands. So I don't think I have a favorite local makeup brand. I do like products from different brands though. To name a few, Pink Sugar, Happy Skin and FS. As for imported ones, I like MAC, Benefit, L'Oreal, Maybelline, Estee Lauder, KPalette and Revlon.

If you will be reincarnated as a makeup item what will you be and why?
-I'd be a lipstick. I have always thought that lipstick is the most versatile makeup. Change the color and instantly, you get a different look! I would love to be able to fit anybody's mood and persona.

The song that describes your life right now is?
-Could Not Ask For More by Edwin McCain and Make You Feel My Love by Adele. 

What is your morning ritual/routine?

-In the morning, I tone my face, apply facial water, eye cream and sunscreen. And for night time, I cleanse, tone, apply serum, moisturizer, eye cream and lip balm. There are days when I exfoliate too and some days I wear a facial mask just to give my skin more love.

If you were have the face of someone whose face would it be? How about body?

-This is probably the hardest question. Haha! I think local, I'd love to have Liza Soberano or Solenn Heussaff's face. Girl crush! And for body, either Solenn Heussaff or Anne Curtis.

Lastly, are you in love right now? 

-Yes. Married for 7 years this year and been with my husband for 14 years.
