It’s the last quarter of 2015, can you believe it? In less than three months (two months and 24 days, in fact), we’ll be celebrating Christmas! By now, not only are you supposed to be shopping for presents (makeup is always a great gift for the ladies!), you should also be stocking up on holiday makeup essentials for all the parties and gatherings I’m sure you will be attending starting this month. And don’t forget, this month ends with Halloween, another occasion that calls for LOADS of makeup! (UPDATED on Oct. 9, 2015: Read on to the bottom of the post for an Instagram promo!)
So from October 1 to 31, 2015, make sure to take advantage of the SM Beauty Sale and dig into the widest range of cosmetics from your favorite brands like L’Oreal, Maybelline, Max Factor, CoverGirl, Revlon, BYS, NYX, Elf, and more! Enjoy up to 50% discount on the latest eye makeup, free eye makeovers, and fabulous freebies.
By the way, it’s also National Eyebrow Day tomorrow, October 2, so check out select SM stores for free brow workshops and grooming sessions!
Yes, it’s all about eyes, which is what SM Beauty is highlighting for the whole month of October, with the campaign “All Eyes On You,” which was launched last September 29 at SM Makati, hosted by beauty expert, makeup artist, and author Bianca Valerio. The campaign highlights four key makeup trends that accentuate the eyes, all perfect for your upcoming holiday festivities.
Artist Valerie Chua (right) gives a workshop on complementing eye colors and what you can mix and match. For instance, pairing red and green will scream Christmas, but tweaking your red to become magenta will go well with green; tweaking your green to become turquoise will contrast nicely with red.
