Surprise, suprise! Careline (A.K.A the budget-friendly local brand for beauty newbies) is finally on BeautyMNL. Fresh from their aesthetic overhaul in 2017, Ever Bilena’s little sister is now completely millennial-ified. We’re talking minimalist packaging, a sleek new logo, and bright pops of yellow to round things out. Based on the brand’s tagline, “better than basic” is right.

Of course, the brand’s youthful glow-up extends to their new cosmetics catalogue. Between their melted metallic lippies and their surprisingly daring liquid lipsticks, Careline clearly isn’t sleeping on the latest trends. What’s more, their mission-vision has remained unchanged since 2005: they’re here to help penny-pinchers have fun with makeup.
Just how much fun, you ask? Well, we picked up their long-wearing Jelly Tint and Lip and Cheek Tint to create a full monochromatic rose makeup look—all for less than P250. Plus, it only took us five minutes tops. See the difference a few dabs of rosy pigment can make, below!

MONOCHROMATIC ROSE MAKEUP BY CARELINE


STEP 1: EYES
For quick application, squeeze a small amount of the Jelly Tint onto your ring finger and transfer the pigment onto your eyelids. Dab until the color is evenly distributed. Build up the color as desired.

STEP 2: CHEEKS
With the Lip and Cheek Tint applicator, dot your cheeks with the pigment. Using your fingers, spread the color. Add more for a brighter flush.

STEP 3: LIPS
Make sure your lips are exfoliated and moisturized to allow for seamless application. Then, using the Lip and Cheek Tint applicator, swipe the tint over your pout. For a more pigmented look, apply an extra layer of the Jelly Tint. To achieve the gradient effect, concentrate the pigment on the center of your lips.
So easy, you can rock it everyday!

The Careline Jelly Tint and Lip and Cheek Tint are available on BeautyMNL for P100 and P125, respectively. Shop them both right here!
