Cream Silk: Transformations.

Last Jan. 23, 2016, I was invited to Cream Silk’s newest campaign launch, The Cream Silk Transformations: Spotlight on the #ModernFilipina.  It was a whole day event that celebrated women, who constantly challenged themselves from good to great. From awesome to awesomer!

Cream Silk, the Philippines’ No. 1 hair care brand, champions Modern Filipinas to strive to become the best versions of themselves while aiding them in their journey of transformation.

Media partners and the Philippines’ top magazines were all in it to witness these transformations. 

Are you guys ready to go beyond beautiful?

Inside the World Trade Center Tent, guests enjoyed a glamorous, empowering and inspiring activity filled affair. Cream Silk collaborated with the country’s top magazines – Cosmopolitan, Meg, MEGA, Metro, Preview and Yes! – to empower the event attendees and equip them with everything they need as they kick off their own transformation.

Gone are the days of the Maria Clara, as women are slowly climbing up the ranks and embracing bigger and better roles for themselves. Today, the modern Filipina has become both a spotlight and a beacon,” shared Gina Lorenzana, Unilever’s Vice President for Personal Care. 

She has evolved into a fearless and trailblazing individual determined to realize her dreams and make a positive mark in the world.”

In celebrating the year of the Modern Filipina, each top glossy hosted workshops and talks, inviting some of the Philippines top industry experts in the fields of fashion, entertainment, and beauty. 

Each activity featured different kinds of transformation, from beauty and fashion makeovers to unleashing one’s inner potential. 

Cosmopolitan’s speaker taught us the worth of makeup. Which ones to splurge on and which ones to save. I highly remembered that she uses liquid soap to remove her waterproof makeup!

Mega booth taught us how to accessorize. Then threw in some tips and tricks on how to not overdo it :) Like put your ring separate from your bracelet arm. Those kinds of stuff.

Meg giving a talk on how to unlock the girl boss in you. Also pro tip: never leave your house without a lippie. This could instantly make you look polish and it doubles as a cheek tint.

At the Cream Silk lounge, guests completed the experience through hair transformations. To demonstrate that only Cream Silk can transform any hair problem to beyond beautiful hair, experts assessed hair needs, as well as recommended the best styles to highlight assets. 

Then, guests had their hair done in their style of choice to experience their very own Cream Silk transformation.

A transformation wouldn’t be complete without makeup, yes that’s coming from a beauty blogger ;)

The booth I was most excited about but wasn’t given a chance to try huuu </3 They said they have tickets so not everybody experienced being coached by photographer Sara Black.

So we took our sad selves and went on to these ring light selfie GIF booths.

This is how beauty bloggers roll. Make do. Make do.

Going back to the Meg booth. Honestly this is where I had most fun in. Kekeke drawing and makeup in one.

Fellow beauty bloggers showing off their skillz.

10 African Illustrators You Should Know

Illustrators have the monumental ability to change the attitudes, viewpoints, and mindsets of those touched by their work. Below are 10 such artists representing the African perspective, both on the continent and outside. You never know, one of them just might be the source of some much needed illumination.

Monica Obaga

Kenya-born, Los Angeles-based Monica Obaga uses her illustrations to tell whimsical stories. Her generous use of color emphasizes the vibrancy of her personality even more, and the beautiful women she draws almost always make you think Obaga could be among your crew of stylish BFF. With generous splashes of primary colors as well as the oranges, browns, and of course black hues favored in the continent; she will make your eyes sparkle and your heart sing with each post. Follow her on Instagram: @monicaobaga.


Nicholle Kobi

This Congolese-French illustrator based in Paris knows a thing or two about glitz and glamour, specifically when it comes to her drawings of groovy cosmopolitan black women. They know how to dress, and they certainly know how to impress what with their fabulous hair, thrilling weekend jaunts in the city with girlfriends, and lazy weekday moments spent sipping lattes in chic cafes, away from the exciting hassles that come with being accomplished career women. With Nicholle’s work, not only do you feel enchanted staring at her drawings, but you also feel excited to explore more of what’s out there on the path to becoming the most beautiful, successful, and well-rounded woman you can be. Follow her on Instagram: @nikisgroove

Diana Ejaita

Born in Cremona of Jamaican-African origins, this now Berlin-based artist plays with black-and-white minimalist tones as well as contrasting textures to come up with beautiful and insightful pieces on the essence of duality and femininity. She also creates clothing based on the same aesthetic that would undoubtedly fit in at any fashion week in whatever part of the world. Follow her work here.
