Before you head out the door, be ready to be greeted by the sweltering hot welcome of the summer season. Yep, summer is here to stay with a forecast of 35 degrees and above for the rest of our days (or until June that is!). While the skies bless us with good weather, make sure to maximize it by showing off that glow-up you’ve been hiding and taking it further in your summer selfies.
Take cues from the girl on our radar this summer: Jules San Jose as she struts around Manila’s hot spots with no fear under the sun (Watch the video here!). Jot this down chicas! Here are 3 locations you should pin down for your next photo-op session during the heatwave.
1. Harbor Square
Create a double tap-worthy feed by posting snapshots behind iconic landmarks in Harbor Square. Jules travels no further than to the Pasay boardwalks to get the instaworthy photos we drool over. The multi-faceted artist shares that all she needs is good lighting, her go-to angle, and a background that complements the entire photo.
2. CCP Complex
One of the culturally rich areas in Metro Manila is Pasay City. Its artistic scenes are perfect for selfie backgrounds and you don’t have to travel far to get the perfect shot (TYG!). The Cultural Center of the Philippines isn’t just an architectural gem but it’s also a historical piece of land that is perfect for outdoor shoots. Jules braves harsh sunlight knowing she’s got the best base cover that provides all-day hydration. Her ultimate go-to this summer would be MAC’s reformulated Lightful C + Coral Grass SPF 30/PA+++ Foundation—an illuminating and hydrating foundation that doubles as a sunscreen and shield from environmental aggressors.
3. Manila Bay
When asked to choose between natural light or ring light, Jules didn’t hesitate to divulge that she’s a fan of good ‘ol fashioned natural sunlight. Like any girl who can appreciate the power of ‘golden hour’ on selfies, Jules worked the 5pm sunlight by the Manila Bay with a natural highlight brought out by the Coral Grass ingredient of the Lightful C collection. The powder foundation gives a brightening finish that gives the wearer a selfie-ready glow in seconds.
