Bedazz Stippling Brush
Posted on: 6th of February 2010 | Under: Fashion & Beauty

One perk of having a sister who has her own line of makeup brushes, is being able to get freebies. Well actually, nothing comes free for her (booo! =P), so I only got the free brushes in exchange for the multiply layout design of Bedazz. =P

My favorite from her line of brushes is the Stippling Brush:

Made of goat hair (the black part) and synthetic hair (white part), its bristles are quite dense, without compromising its softness (it’s amazingly soft!). It’s great for achieving an “airbrushed” look when applying liquid or cream foundation. In addition, I also use it to apply mineral foundation and blush, both of which generate promising results too!

I’m not too familiar with the MAC 187 Duo Fibre Stippling Brush (since I don’t own one), but I reckon this is pretty much a great alternative. At only Php700 (around USD14),  it’s so much more affordable! If we were talking about special deals, I’d say that this definitely tops all deals out there! Plus, unlike some of the other affordable brushes in the market, this brush does not bleed black dye when washing AT ALL! I no longer have to worry about staining my towels when laying them out to dry after washing. I just love it! :)

So, if any of you makeup junkies are looking for a good, yet affordable alternative to other expensive stippling brushes out there, I highly suggest that you guys try the Bedazz Stippling Brush. It won’t disappoint! :)

With my baby! <3

Web Design: Bedazz!
Posted on: 26th of January 2010 | Under: Artsy Fartsy, Geek Talk

It has been over ten years since my first love affair with web design. The first few years of that decade was spent enthusiastically designing different layouts for personal websites and blogs I maintained all over the internet. However, the last half saw very little creative juices output on my my part, not necessarily due to the lack of spark plug juices (although, I did seem to run out of ideas for a while), but more of the fact that I had become more active in my offline life.

I enjoy spending more time in “the real world” but every once in a while, I do miss sitting in front of the monitor wracking my brain for hours until I came up with layouts to suit my liking.

Since my sister was planning to launch a Multiply site for her very own set of makeup brushes, Bedazz, I took the opportunity and volunteered to help her design the whole site from start to finish.

I quickly staged a late-night photo shoot, with my sister as the model. Our very own living room was turned into a makeshift studio, with one of our table lamps used as soft lighting.

We then had a quick product shoot the following afternoon in our garage, using the sun’s natural light.

And with all the graphics and images ready, I spent several hours designing and fiddling with template codes.

The outcome?

A simple Black and White layout with just a few embellishments here and there.

I took more time tweaking with codes than in designing the actual layout. My knowledge and skill in HTML and CSS has decided to fail me. Well I’m not really surprised, considering that it has in fact been years since I last fiddled around with code. =P

Anyway, do check out the multiply site. :)

Bedazz currently has three makeup brushes in its line, with several others in the testing stage. I’m not being biased, but the brushes are really nice! Mix good quality with affordable prices (only Php700 or around USD14 for a full-sized stippling brush!), it sure is a great deal!
