I celebrated my 29th birthday at Clinique Rustan’s Makati last Saturday (my real birthday is the 27th). As you may already know, I am a huge fan of Clinique products. My skin regimen consists mostly of Clinique products. That is why, I was so touched and honored that Clinique offered to throw me a birthday party at the Makati counter.
This is going to be a 2-part post as there are tons of photos!
Let’s check out my birthday cupcakes first:
These are from Captain’s Mix and Magic. You can email them at email@example.com or phone them at 0926 7450638. Look for Lyn.
Green is my favorite color and it also happens to be Clinique’s color so this cupcake is perrrrfect!
Before the guests arrived, I had my makeup done by Prin, the makeup artist hired by Ms. Budit especially for the event. (Thank you Ms. Budit!!)
Of course, you all know that my skin was prepped with Clinique’s 3-Step System, right?
Choosing the right foundation shade:
My guest and best friend Ahne, was the chosen sacrificial lamb, I mean model of the day! = )
Here, Ms. Malou is prepping her skin:
Choosing the right foundation:
This is me thanking everybody for coming and telling them what’s in store for the day.
Turning you over to Ms. Budit:
She’s great. She’s the one in-charge of training all the Clinique Beauty Specialists. Yep, she’s right on top of the food chain. What’s special about Ms. Budit is that, her talks are never boring. They’re very educational, she uses simple language and gives relevant examples.
After the talk, each of my guests had a personal consultation and makeover from the beauty specialists.
This party ain’t complete without my blogger best friend, Kitten. She also blogged about this so check out her post as well.

…and fixing her brows. Ms. Malou is the expert when it comes to brow shaping and grooming!
Here’s my friend J, having her skin profiled by Ms. Budit:
This is a test that shows how your skin reacts after the 3-Step System. One side absorbs the moisturizer while the other side that has not been prepped doesn’t.
See the difference? You can easily tell that the skin on the right is smoother.
