It’s both reasonable when they say that the new normal requires zero to no makeup and calls for new makeup products, too. Here’s why: Going out with almost your whole face covered and protected allows you to wear little to no makeup at all unlike how you used to. But if you feel the need to still apply a pop of color or hide some unwanted spots on your forehead, you definitely may do so. While there’s no stopping our local makeup favorites, they’ve got the best makeup releases that feel good even underneath our face masks.

Not only are these products and releases most covetable, they are also proudly bearing the DNA and bloodline of the Filipino spirit, as they champion the beauty of local excellence. Easily being at par or even better than some brands saturating the very dynamic market, these standouts are worthy every peso, making it very proud to stand by.

Happy Skin

Happy Skin has the products that gently yet perfectly enhances the skin, accentuating what is naturally and beautifully Filipina. From the name itself, the pH-activated blush—cooling color adapt stick reacts with your body chemistry to give a one-of-a-kind color and is also buildable, blendable, and long-lasting.
