Here we are in the twenty-first century and nowadays men are more conscious of their looks. They pay more attention to their skin, specially their faces. Surprisingly not only gays but a growing number of straight men also use loose powder to cover up oiliness, prevent pimples or simply look neat.
To enlighten the uninitiated and save them from make-up myths such as “make-up is for girls.” Here are tips to achieve that “fresh-and-clean” look without risking your masculinity:
STEP 1 PREP-UP!
Just remember the three basic principles of a beauty regimen: Cleanse, Tone Moisturize
STEP 2 APPLY MAKE-UP!
If you know how to apply make-up by yourself, then snaps for you! But if you don’t, try to ask for assistance from the friendly sales personnel of the store before purchasing the products. It doesn’t matter if your make-up is a woman’s brand. As long as it doesn’t irritate your skin, then it’s all good.
STEP 2.1 “HIDE THE AGENDA”
The first step in applying make-up is to conceal all the blemishes by evening out the skin. Choose a concealer that matches the shade of your foundation. Blend the two together , then presto! A smooth look!
STEP 2.2 “ESTABLISH THE FOUNDATION”
Apply a sheer coverage of foundation. Liquid Foundation is best for all skin types. Cake foundation is not a good idea for dry skin. (personally I use BB Cream instead of liquid foundation).
STEP 2.3 “POWER-UP WITH POWDER”
Use loose or pressed powder over the foundation or BB Cream for an ultra sheer finish. Do not drown your face with powder so you can still see the glow that foundation or BB Cream gives. If you have oily skin, powder the T-zone only.
STEP 3 USE A MAKE-UP REMOVER AND REPEAT STEP 1
Of course, once you get back home, you’d want to clean up lest you grow too tired and sleep with your make-up on. Use facial foams instead of scrubs for removing make-up. Facial scrubs are usually applied once or twice a week depending on the accumulation of dead skin and on the type of scrub you use.
For some who still think that wearing make-up is a silly and sissy thing to do, well honey, think again, If you’re busy working-out your buff body, then you might as well take extra care for your face.

God couldn’t be everywhere so he created Mothers.
When the good Lord was creating mothers, He was into His sixth day of
“overtime” when the angel appeared and said, “You’re doing a lot of fiddling around on
And the Lord said, “Have you read the specs on this order?
She has to be completely washable, but not plastic; Have 180 moveable parts…all replaceable; Run on black coffee and leftovers;
Have a lap that disappears when she stands up;
A kiss that can cure anything from a broken leg to a disappointed love
affair; And six pairs of hands.”
The angel shook her head slowly and said, “Six pairs of hands…no way.”
“It’s not the hands that are causing me problems,” said the Lord.
“It’s the three pairs of eyes that mothers have to have.”
“That’s on the standard model?” asked the angel.
The Lord nodded. “One pair that sees through closed doors when she asks,
`What are you kids doing in there?’ when she already knows. Another here in the back
of head that sees what she shouldn’t but what she has to know, and of course the ones here in front that can look at a child when he goofs up and say, `I understand and I love you’ without so much as uttering a word.”
“Lord,” said the angel, touching His sleeve gently, “Come to bed.
Tomorrow…” “I can’t,” said the Lord, “I’m so close to creating something so close
to myself. Already I have one who heals herself when she is sick…can feed a family of six on one pound of hamburger…and can get a nine-year-old to stand under a shower.”
The angel circled the model of a mother very slowly. “It’s too soft,” she sighed.
“But tough!” said the Lord excitedly. “You cannot imagine what this mother can do or
endure.” “Can it think?”
“Not only think, but it can reason and compromise,” said the Creator.
Finally, the angel bent over and ran her finger across the cheek.
“There’s a leak,” she pronounced. “I told You, You were trying to put too much into this
model.” “It’s not a leak,” said the Lord, “It’s a tear.”
“What’s it for?”
“It’s for joy, sadness, disappointment, pain, loneliness and pride.”
“You are a genius,” said the angel. The Lord looked somber. “I didn’t put it there.”
Happy mothers day to all the mothers.
10. Everyone appreciates a phone call or a card. I learned this
when I was sick in hospital.
9. Don’t be so intimidated by the cheerleaders and jocks.
8. It’s okay to keep secrets between friends because
everyone needs his or her own privacy, but deception is
definitely not allowed.
7. Have the courage to tell some friends that their paradigm
which says to be evil is wrong.
6. Always remember your values and principles.
5. Provide support and encouragement to your friends.
4. Everyone is unique so there is no point not being yourself.
You are you, and no one should change that.
3. Friendships are not gotten in one or two days.
2. Sometimes arguing with friends is normal and necessary.
1. Association brings on assimilation. If you think your friends are
stupid and crude, get new friends unless you want to be
stupid and crude.
Sternberg’s Love Theory
Ilang araw na sya’ng tumatawag sa akin para lang makausap ako!
(Ndi ko na lang sasabihin yung name nya kasi iniisip ko din yung privacy nya. At maraming makakabasa dito ng article na ito).
Balik tayo sa kwento ko, ndi ko alam kung totoo yung mga sinasabi nya sa akin over the phone, kung seryoso ba sya o ndi, baka joke lang yun at assuming lang ako hehehe… pero minsan tinatamaan ako sa mga sinasabi nya eh, as in kinikilig… pero kung ndi naman totoo yung mga sinasabi nya, ok lang sa akin atleast napapasaya nya ako at kinikilig talaga ako, matagal ko din na hindi naramdaman yung ganitong feelings, college pa ata ako nung huli ko’ng maramdaman ito, yung binibigyan ka ng importansya at talagang nag e-effort para lang talaga makausap ako sa phone at marinig lang ang boses ko, yung bigla syang magtetext para mag remind na kumain na ako at wag papalipas ng gutom. Sya nga ngayon ang laman halos ng inbox ko eh.
Nakakatuwa na maski ndi ako masyadong madaldal sa phone kasi may makakarinig dito sa amin, sya talaga ang dumadaldal sa akin, ang sarap ng feeling na may nagbibigay importansya sau maski kaunti lang.
Isa siguro sa mga dahilan kung bakit ako natutuwa sa kanya kasi nga nbsb ako?!? Kaya konting sweet words or sweet nothings ay ok na sa akin, nagugustuhan ko na yung character nya, ilang gabi na syang consistent sa pagtawag sa akin, sabi nya nga sa akin easy to get daw ako. Ano magagawa ko? Kung ndi ko alam kung panu ba mag pa hard to get?!? Nbsb nga!?!
Ikaw, na bumabasa nito sana totoo yung sinasabi mo sa akin natutuwa din ako sau kapag tinatawag mo’ng “mama” si mama ko, pero kung ndi naman po totoo ummm… wala akong magagawa pero kung ganun mas gusto ko pa mabuhay sa kasinungalingan, if you love me let me know; if not please gently let me go. I am grateful that you came into my life.
I feel hurt that you do not care or even texted me.
I am afraid of sharing my feelings with you.
I am afraid you will reject me.
I am afraid that I am boring to you.
I am afraid that you don’t like me.
I understand that sometimes you are busy and tired in your work.
And I don’t want to be a hindrance in your life.
Thank you for making me feel that I’m important & special.
Thank you for your time and effort.
And I think I’m starting to like you. ♥

Pag-ibig ng isang Ina ( A Short-Inspiring Story)
Sembreak. Tumakbo ang bata sa kanyang ina na naghahanda para sa kanilang hapunan sabay abot ng isang pirasong papel sa ina na kanina pa niya sinulat pagkatapos gawin ang mga inutos ng ina sa kanya. Pinahid ng Ina ang basang kamay sa apron at binasa ang sinulat ng Anak:
Sa Pagbubunot ng Damo: P5.00
Sa Paglilinis ng Kwarto: P10.00
Sa Pag-utos sa pagbili ng Asin sa Tindahan: P5.00
Pagbabantay kay bunso habang namalengke ka: P5.00
Sa Walang Bagsak kung Report Card: P10.00
Sa Paggising ko ng Maaga at Pagiging masunurin: P15.00
Total lahat: P50.00
Napatingin ang Ina sa anak na naghihintay sa ibabayad niya. Napaisip, sabay sulat sa likorang papel. Pagkatapos magsulat, ibinalik niya sa Anak ang papel:
Sa 9 na buwan kong pagtitiis na dalhin ka sa aking sinapupunan
habang lumalaki ka: WALANG BAYAD
Sa mga gabing tiniis ko ang puyat para lamang bantayan ka pag may sakit at nagdarasal na gumaling ka: WALANG BAYAD
Sa mga luhang pumatak kapag matigas ang iyong ulo at pawis sa trabaho para lamang may maibaon ka sa eskuwelahan: WALANG BAYAD
Sa lahat ng laruan, damit, pagkain at pagpupunas sa sipon mo.: WALANG BAYAD
Sa aking pagmamahal sayo mula noon, hanggang sa mga oras na ito at hanggang sa huling hininga ko: WALANG BAYAD
Anak, pag tinotal mo to lahat, Ang aking pagmamahal sa’yo, WALANG BAYAD.
Binasa ng musmos na bata ang sinulat ng Ina. Napaluha ang bata at napahagulhol. Ngayon NAIINTINDIHAN NA NIYA. Tumingin sa Ina, “Ma, salamat sa lahat!”
Niyakap niya ito at hinalikan. Kinuha ang panulat at sinulat sa harapang papel na kanyang nilista kanina: FULLY-PAID. :’)
