Pen Pineapple Apple Pen (PPAP) Nail Art

I have a pen, I have an apple! Ugh! Apple Pen! ♪ 

PPAP or Pen Pineapple Apple Pen song is such a hit! I hear it almost everywhere! Some may love it, some may find it funny while to others, it may be annoying. But you have to admit that the beat of the song is really catchy! I bet you can even hear it playing on your head as we're talking about it! PPAP! ♪ 

Since I haven't done a nail art tutorial for a long time, I decided to create something out of this song. 
TADA! PPAP Nails! I hope you enjoy watching!

I'm sorry, I couldn't use the original song in my video. Since I am a law-abiding YouTube Content Creator, I know I can't just use famous songs for my videos unless, of course, I want a dispute or a copyright claim from the recording company. Hehe I hope you were able to enjoy the tutorial despite hearing a different upbeat song. :)

My nail art video tutorials don't get a lot of views and hits compared to my other YouTube videos, but ART is something I am passionate about and enjoy doing so I will still continue doing such videos. If you haven't seen my YouTube channel yet, please do check it out! I have other amazing nail art videos such as Salt Nail Art, Sugar Nail Art, Newspaper Nail Art, and MORE! Check out my YouTube Channel HERE and don't forget to SUBSCRIBE! It would mean a lot to me.

Thanks for being here!

YouTube Lounge Meet and Greet on October 15, 2016

2 years ago, I had my very first Meet and Greet. It could probably hold the record for the Smallest Meet and Greet ever! At that time, I had 1 person to meet and then me. It was a meet-up with a my Filipina viewer, Krishna, working in Thailand that went back home here in the Philippines for vacation. She messaged me saying she adores my videos so much and would want to meet me and hand me a few items she personally bought in Thailand. That was it. 

(1st ever Meet and Greet with Krishna. Read more HERE.)

After that, I had a few Meet and Greet's with few of my most-loyal viewers, readers and followers. Here are some of them:

MOR 101.9 Awards + MUA for a day!

Isn't it ironic that I love makeup but I admit that I am not yet good at it? I mean, makeup keeps on evolving and I get welcomed by a new trend while I'm still in the process of learning something that came out a few months back. Thankfully, there are people that trust me and see potential in me. 

A while back, I was invited to be a MUA or Makeup Artist for a day at the MOR (My Only Radio) 101.9 Awards Night. Before this, I was also invited to be a Makeup Artist for GMA 7's Blogger Style Camp. I am amazed how these people have so much trust in me when sometimes, I doubt my own skills. 

Anyway, let's talk about what happened at the MOR awards night... and how Daniel Padilla made me weep!

The awards night was held at the Kia Theater in Cubao, Araneta Center last August 2016. I went with my supportive BF and loads of self-doubt and nervousness! (hehe) 
Can I really apply makeup? Am I really good? Questions I kept asking my BF.

But as they say, one just has to believe in his/herself and anything is possible! 

Here's all the makeup I brought to the event.

My BF bought me this pretty pink makeup train case as a gift so I could use it on this day. Isn't he really sweet, thoughtful and supportive?  
I think I haven't told you guys yet that on my Mother's birthday, he initiatively bought her bouquet of beautiful flowers, birthday cake and sweet chocolate bar, I haven't, right? Like what I told my friend, I see so much good in him. But, let's talk more about him in another post.


By the way, if you guys want to know what camera I use for my vlogs, it's my favorite Casio Exilim TR60. For proper tutorials and videos shot in my room, I use my old Canon 650 DSLR. But for outdoor videos, travel and event vlogs and cute selfies for Instagram, I use this pretty purple camera called Casio TR60. It used to be unavailable here in the Philippines! But it is here now and it is available at all Camerahaus branches!

Here is the vlog video! I hope you guys enjoy!

Okay, so at first I thought I was going to do makeup on celebrities. That's why I was so worried. I ended up doing makeup on MOR's jolly Disc Jocks! The nervousness in me was toned down because the DJs were friendly and nice. 

My first doll-up client was DJ Maki. 
To be honest, the reason why I was so anxious was because I know it takes me forever to finish doing makeup. I usually take 2 hours before I finish hair and makeup. That is tried, tested and proven! haha Be it on me or on someone else's face. I remember I also did my BF's sister's makeup for her debut party and it also took us 2 hours to finish! I'm crazy!

At first, DJ Maki was excited for her makeover. I was determined to finish her makeup in less than my usual "makeup time". But after an hour, she became distressed... At one point, I saw her made face because she was getting exasperated. My BF saw the face, too... But, I couldn't be shaken. I felt apologetic and shy at the same time that it's already taking us too long. I couldn't tell her that's my usual makeup time. Hehe

After a few moment, I was able to finish her hair and makeup! Horaaaaaay! 

This is her final look. What do you guys think? Would you also sit in my chair so I could do your hair and makeup for hours and hours?? Hehehe 
On that note, I saw her Instagram post and she mentioned jokingly that it took her 2 hours to get this look. I was a bit disgruntled but I couldn't complain because she speaks of the truth. Hehehehe ^_^

I have to improve on that part, I know. Gotta be able to finish a celebrity's makeup in 15 minutes next time...

My next client was DJ ChinaPaps. He was warm and friendly and conversed with me while I did his simple foundation, contour and powder look. 

DJ Chacha was there but I didn't do her makeup.  I just asked to take a photo with her and asked her few questions about her recent joining at Pinoy Big Brother. 

I also met DJ Bea! Such a lovely and beautiful lady! She told me she watches my YouTube videos. I really couldn't believe someone like her would watch my videos. I mean, who am I? I was so flattered! You guys can also check out her YouTube channel. From what I know, she does makeup tutorials and maybe a few vlog videos. Go and subscribe!

Here you see me with Hoya of Infinite! Hehehe Don't you find it funny how people of the same ethnicity look alike for people with different ethnicity. But for them, they totally do not look alike! Just like how Westerners think Asians look alike, I think most Westerners look alike... And some Koreans look alike, too. 

Okay, now let's get to the Daniel Padilla story. Daniel Padilla is my favorite male out of all the couples and love teams on ABS-CBN. I have been wanting to see him in person and maybe take a photo with him so I could brag-post it on my Facebook and Instagram. (hehe) I heard from my friend that Daniel Padilla was coming to the event but he was going to be at the latter part of the show. My friend gave me a tip to go to the side of the stage and wait for him because he was about to come. But I have been holding on my pee since lunch time. I figured I could make it back before he arrives. So, off I went to the bathroom and told my BF to stay put so he could capture the moment when Daniell arrives. But, damn pee. It took me so long to get to the restroom plus some happenings backstage. But I was positive I would see Daniel. When I went out of the comfort room, my BF was looking for me. He said "Where have you been? I have been looking for you. Daniel just left. Here, I took a photo for you."

Damn, Daniel. Why are you so hard to catch? In Tagalog, bakit ka mailap? Hehe!

Though I didn't get to see Daniel and his handsome face, I was still happy and satisfied because there's a man beside me, ever so loving and supportive, willing to carry my pink makeup train case just to be with me. 

I wish everyone a happy and blessed day! Thank you so much for reading! Please stay tuned for more blog posts and don't forget to follow @RealAsianBeauty on Facebook and Instagram!

Launch of YouTube Lounge in the Philippines! (+ Meet and Greet!)

Hi, guys! I have great news for fans of YouTube and Youtube Creators! They have just launched the first-ever YouTube Lounge and it is happening here in the Philippines!

First, what is YouTube Lounge? It is a physical space where YouTube comes alive! Here, you can WATCH, SAVE and MEET!

WATCH - Watch top YT videos in the Philippines with less buffering care of Accelerator technology.
SAVE - Save videos onto your device fast with Accelerator and YouTube offline.
MEET - Meet your favorite YouTube creators during the YouTube Creator Roadshow. 

This is great news, considering the sluggish internet speed that we have here in the Philippines. There are hundreds of thousands of amazing videos on Youtube and we'd love to watch them all! However, the slow internet is preventing us from enjoying the fruit of labor of our favorite YouTube Creators. That is why YouTube did this because they want to give their viewers, especially Filipinos, a better YouTube experience. This is exciting because we are the first country in the world to receive Accelerated YouTube videos. 

YouTube Lounges can be found inside Ayala Malls. As we speak, there are currently 6 YouTube Lounges in the Philippines: UP Town Center, Glorietta, Trinoma, Greenbelt, Market Market and ATC. Eventually, Ayala Malls will be putting up lounges in ALL of their malls nationwide.   

The first YouTube Lounge was held at Greenbelt 5, Gallery area. Let me tell you what happened at the event. First, there was me in a sparkly Little Black Dress.

Oh, in case you haven't followed me on Instagram yet, my username is @RealAsianBeauty. Please follow, follow, follow! :)

Here are some of my fellow YouTube Creators!

The launch was welcomed with some keynotes from Gabby Roxas, Google Philippines' Head of Marketing.

After some talks, it was time for our YouTube Creator Panel. I have never panelled for anything before until I became a YouTube Creator. This is my 4th ever Panel, and 3rd YouTube Panel Session.

Up to this day, I still find it amusing how I get to sit beside and rub elbows with celebrities and famous people now. Just look at that, me comfortably sitting beside Erwann Heussaff.

The amazing press people and some VIP's. Hello, Ma'am Sir! (hehe)

After our quick talk, we then headed to THE area. The lounge was covered with huge red cloth to keep the momentum. But everyone was excited, including me! I have so much love and respect for this passion I am currently calling as my "job". I enjoy my YouTube life so much; I couldn't be more excited for this yet another YouTube Philippines milestone.

TADA!!!! Here you witness the birth of the first-ever YouTube Lounge in the world! A place where YouTube Creators and YouTube Fans could meet, watch videos and just chill and enjoy!

The YouTube Lounge, however, was a bit far from what I have imagined. From the original concept submitted to us, I have imagined glass walls and ceilings to keep the area closed and intimate. However, the one I have witnessed in Greenbelt 5 is open to anyone, literally. I am sure YouTube and Google know better than I do but I would have appreciated glass walls more, just to block off the noise from the mall and make the experience of YouTube viewers much more intimate and alive!

I am not sure if this will be the final setup for all of the YouTube Lounges, though. In my opinion, since it is YouTube we are talking about, I would have appreciated a "DIRECTORY" or a screen where viewers could explore and get to know other YouTube Creators, aside from the ones they already watch and are already subscribed to. 

But, there is a big screen, which is nice. They play different videos of local YouTube Creators. I have chanced upon one my my videos, the How To Color Your Hair Using Crepe Paper. (Want to watch the actual YouTube Tutorial? Please CLICK HERE.)

Beauty Vloggers!!!

Erwann Heusaff. 

Side story. If you are not from the Philippines, let me tell you a little something about this guy. Erwann is a model, chef and celebrity here in the Philippines. He is brother to celebrity Solenn Heusaff and boyfriend to celebrity Anne Curtis. He belongs in the "IT" group and is considered one of the hottest males to date. A friend of mine asked me how it felt to sit beside Erwann. I felt really flattered and grateful, I mean, that is Erwann. And you don't always get to sit beside Erwann. But I was not "kilig", if that's what my friend wanted me to blurt. Hehehe To be honest, the only 2 male that could make me go crazy while sitting beside them, aside from my ever-loving BF, are Ryan Higa and Kim Sunggyu!!! Hahaha

Also rubbing elbows with Globe Executive now, I can't believe the things happening in my life because of YouTube. 

After all the picture taking, it was finally time to chill and relax at the lounge. This is probably how you'd look like when you visit one of our YouTube Lounges inside your favorite Ayala Mall!

Chill-chill kapag may time. YouTube-YouTube kapag may time.

How does the YouTube Accelerator work, you ask?
1.) Connect to Globe GoWifi in Ayala Malls.
2.) Open your updated YouTube App.
3.) Find YT videos with the TEAL badge.
4.) Watch top videos in the Philippines with LESS buffering. 


We are also going on a 3-MONTH long series of Meet and Greet featuring Philippine's Top YouTube Creators. The Meet and Greet will be set in the YouTube Lounges scattered around Metro Manila! However, you will not get to see everyone at the same time. We will have different schedules. At least 3 YouTube Creators will be present at a YouTube Lounge per schedule.

FINALLY!!! MEET AND GREET with me! You guys have been telling me you want to see me, you want to meet me and you want to take pictures with me. The time has come for our Meet and Greet! 


It's going to be on October 15, 2016 at Glorietta! It's a Saturday so I am hoping you guys could come! It's just a chill Meet and Greet! Let's Vlog together, take selfies, hugs and kisses and of course, you get to witness the YouTube Lounge in Glorietta! I really, really hope you guys could make it there! I also want to meet you! For updates regarding this MandG, please follow me on Instagram @RealAsianBeauty. (I'm afraid no one would want to meet me. So, I hope my 3 loyal blog readers could come! Hehe) See you there!!!

Easy Travel Makeup (Using Sephora Products)

I love traveling! I love the feeling of exploring new places, trying new food and of course, meeting new people! You know what I don't like? I don't like being stressed-out when I'm on a trip! For us women, nothing is more stressful than getting our eyebrows on fleek or trying to perfect that winged eyeliner when we only have about 10 minutes to get ready before that tour bus leaves! We want to be able to make the most out of that precious trip, don't we? So, I'm sharing my easy and stress-free makeup routine.

The products that I'll be using are from Sephora! "Wait, what? Sephora is now in the Philippines? Was I living under a rock??" Yes, you read that right, babe! Sephora products are now available in the Philippines through their website! I ordered all these Too Faced goodies from their store and they got to me in just a few days! No need to order from the U.S. nor wait for weeks and weeks and pay excruciating amount of Customs Duties and Tax! The products will be delivered straight to your home, in just a matter of days! How amazing! I am really happy with the Philippine Sephora store service. 

Enjoy the quick makeup tutorial below:

Quick and easy! The best part about this makeup routine is that it is sweat proof! Because you don't have eyeshadow nor thick foundation or contour, chances of having cakey makeup will be lessened. I once had the mistake of applying full-face makeup when I went to an amusement park thinking it would last the whole day. I ended up with patchy face powder, creased eyeshadow and smeared eyeliner! From then on, I bid farewell to thick, full-face makeup whenever I'm on a trip. It's also nice to have fresh-looking face in pictures, don't you agree? When you keep your makeup minimal and don't follow makeup fads, chances of having something to cringe about 5-10 years from now is also nominal.

I hope you guys enjoyed the video! Please subscribe to my YouTube channel for more quick, easy and fun tutorials and vlogs!

Flawless Rejuvelite Mask Facial + Skin Update

A lot of people ask me about my current skin care routine. To be honest, not a lot has changed since the last time I gave an update. However, I did try a new facial treatment at Flawless - the Flawless Rejuvelite Mask Facial!

Here is my skin BEFORE the facial. My skin has been cooperating with me lately, not a lot of acne breakout and it has seemed to control the production of oil, therefore reducing the risk of acne breakout. The only concern I have with my skin these days are still the ice-pick scars and open and visible pores.

Flawless introduces a technologically advanced aesthetic treatment that sheds light to all skin concerns! The Rejuvelite Mask Facial is powered by LED technology that activates collagen production and boosts skin rejuvenation for total beauty. This treatment works by allowing the skin to absorb light energy to produce cellular fuel and increase activity of the body's natural healing and regeneration processes. Rejuvelight Mask Facial offers 7 different colors of visible light and infrared light to produce various benefits to the skin, such as firming lines, soothing skin, repairing damages, clearing acne and blemishes, reducing redness and balancing complexion.

Since you guys also know that I DO NOT belong in the "Forever Alone" zone anymore, I decided to go to Flawless with my boyfriend. (Why I do not want to show his face will be answered in another blog post.) My BF doesn't have acne like I do, but I am concerned about his skin because of the field of his work. He often gets exposed to heat, dust and sunlight and I noticed that his skin is dark, oily and has some spots. I thought the Flawless Rejuvelite Mask Facial could help improve his skin condition, too.

Apparently, it was his first time to ever have "pricking" facial. He has some spots that needed to be pricked. He suddenly gasped, "Love, is this Fractional Needling Therapy I'm having??!" LOL! 

At first, my BF thought it was awkward for him to be inside a room that is filled with so much PINK. But while we were inside the clinic, he told me he was shocked when he saw some other men having facial treatments as well.

He got to try the Rejuvelite first before I did. He was so excited and I was excited for him as well! In my mind, I was excited because this is one of the newest treatments at Flawless. However, I am sure my BF was excited because the mask looks like Iron Man or something. 

Ahhh, it looks so cool! I can't wait to try it!

While Bf was enjoying his Rejuvelite a.k.a. IRON MAN mask, I had my usual facial and pimple pricking. Before the Rejuvelite mask, Anti-septic mask was first applied on my skin to close the pores from the pricking and to prevent irritation. That is why my face looks glossy in the picture.

After years and years of going to Flawless alone, there HE is, a man beside me, laying on a pink bed, having facial treatment to support me and the things I enjoy. Aww. 

The last time I went to Flawless for a facial was 2 months ago. Every attendant in Flawless is knowledgeable and has gone through proper training. However, I have a few known attendants that handle me and have been handling my skin since my first few sessions at Flawless. Most of them have delicate hands, especially when it comes to the "pricking" part. My attendants, Lance(Flawless SM North) and Andy(Flawless Cubao), have unbelievable light hands even when pricking! Whenever these 2 girls would prick my pimples, it won't hurt and I could even sleep while they prick my acne culprits. 

But since a new attendant pricked my pimples, it felt different and painful that I cried and almost asked her to stop. I have high pain tolerance so when I say it hurts, it really hurts!

Anyway. Flawless offers Rejuvelite Mask Facials in 4 Full variants : Rejuvelite Oil Control Mask Facial, Rejuvelite Acne Control Mask Facial, Rejuvelite Age Defy Mask Facial and Rejuvelite Whitening Mask Facial. All variants cost Php 1,100 per session.

These gorgeous effects depend on the wavelengths of light used, which is determined by color. Red and Purple lights promote youthful beauty, red combats wrinkles and increases collagen production for a smoother, younger-looking skin, while purple increases cell regeneration and renewal. For damaged and irritated skin, cyan and yellow lights are useful for healing as cyan calms and soothes irritated skin and reduces swollen capillaries, and yellow alleviates redness and heals skin from inflammation, sunburn, windburn and other environmental damages.

#RelationshipGoals. If you have a significant other and you want to treat him, why don't you take him to Flawless? I am sure he would appreciate some pricking and an "Iron Mask" facial, too!

Here is my skin BEFORE and AFTER the Rejuvelite Mask Facial. Both with no powder nor foundation. Normally, my face would be swollen and pimples spots would be red right after a facial treatment. But because of the new Rejuvelite Mask, my face looks fresh and smooth, as if I never had pimple pricking! After the facial, we watched a movie and had dinner. It was my first time to ever go around the mall without powder or foundation on yet I was able to walk around confidently. 


*No pain
*Reduces swelling of face after facial
*Minimizes the redness of pricked pimple
*Makes skin glow and supple

*Light is a bit blinding
*Has no direct effect on pores and ice-pick scars

Here's my Mystery Man checking his skin after his Flawless Rejuvelite Mask a.k.a. "Iron Mask" mask. He was delighted to see his renewed, better-looking skin!
