Remember when you were a little 5-year-old and you played dress up with your mother’s lipsticks and jewelry prancing around the house with adult-sized stilettos and sunglasses? We do. Imagine entering a big studio where you’re free to play with a huge pile of makeup and lots of pretty props and cameras. It was heaven!
Together with BYS–the Australian cosmetics brand that has been making waves in Manila courtesy of its CEO Tony Chua–we launched a party where beauty and fashion influencers are given free reign on BYS products to transform their looks and win prizes!
The coveted prize, a huge BYS kit worth 15,000 pesos.
The girls had the freedom to choose one of three looks: FLORAL, STREET, and RETRO. Each “look” had its own studio and set of props.
L-R: Floral, Street, Retro
Before the games began, renowned makeup artist Jake Galvez showed how to do the three specific looks. After that, it was gorge-face on!

It was a beautiful chaotic mess as the girls primped and got their fabulous photos taken in their respective stations, all vying to be one the three winners of the BYS complete cosmetics kit prize!
