Celebrating Beauty and Friendship | BDJ Beauty Confidential

WIth Earth of earthlingorgeous.com PS: Thank you for the passes! <3

It's been a while since I attended a beauty conference. Back when I started this blog, around 3 years ago, I met wonderful people when I got in the world of beauty and Belle De Jour's power planners paved way to developing the beauty junkie that you now see before you. Hehehe

This year's BDJ Convention is in collaboration with Project Vanity and as usual, there are a lot of treats, samples... And keeping in line with the year's theme of Beauty Confidential, a whole lot of beauty hacks with varied topics, be it skincare, self-care, pro makeup tips we average MUJunkies can try to improve ourselves and even topics about caring with what's "down there".

Another fun thing to note when attending beauty conventions like BDJ Beauty Confidential is you get to see and experience new brands of makeup. This one is Chihuahua cosmetics which features travel friendly versions of or beloved makeup, from lipsticks to eyeliners. Cause come on, not everyone can finish a big tube of lipstick in less than a year. This way, we're being economical, getting only what we "need" :D. Plus IT'S SO CUTE!

Ms. Liz of Project Vanity explaining that what we do with our selves, the time and relaxation we get while we do our skincare is what really matters. #SelfCare

Seriously though, after all the flack I got from my parents and a couple of relatives before for even being a bit interested with makeup when I was a teen, to finally being able to develop myself physically, emotionally and socially, Belle De Jour's beauty conventions have always been a big part of that. It really is not just about the makeup but the friendships, bridges and opportunities that I have made in part of opening up with one convention with my sister, as we traversed QC just to have some bonding.

Wow. Three years of makeup and acquaintances that started with this Belle De Jour convention and me wanting to try out modeling has now evolved into a full time online diary and friendships that has so far stood the tests of time.


And this year's beauty confidential is really not just about celebrating beauty or having fun, but also for celebrating friendship, that while you may not be together most of the time, when you make a comeback, when you see each other again it's like no time has passed and you're sure that when you need them or they need you you have each other's backs no matter what.
