The beauty of the Filipina shone like no other as Ever Bilena, the country’s No. 1 local cosmetics brand, welcomed the candidates of 2019 Binibining Pilipinas beauty pageant at the company’s headquarters in Caloocan City recently.

The official makeup sponsor of the country’s most prestigious beauty tilt, Ever Bilena treated the candidates to a glam session with celebrity makeup artist Muriel Vega Perez. Apart from makeup techniques, the makeup guru gave the candidates some skincare tips.

Ultimate vibrance

Women today are so into changing their hair color to express themselves and more. But chemical treatments that come along with this leave their locks dry and dull.

That’s why Cream Silk introduced its Triple Keratin Rescue Ultimate Color Revive with three keratin products in a sulfate-free conditioner, allowing hair color to stay longer. It also replenishes nutrients lost from coloring, leaving hair soft and vibrant.

The brand recently staged Vibrance Studio, a content hub featuring four immersive rooms themed after the most well-loved hair colors of Filipinas — The Blonde Room, The Red Room, The Brown Room, which also served as a chill lounge where guests got special treats; and The Multitone Room, where drinks were served.

Senior brand manager Carlos Corrales said, “Today’s modern Filipina is all about self-expression and believes hair color is a platform to do just that. Cream Silk developed its latest innovation suited for color-loving Filipinas. We are determined to empower them by making sure in any hair color and on any stage, they can stay at their ultimate vibrance.”
