Limitless Possibilities: Be Beautiful and Earn

0 Responses
Every time I receive a package, I get so electrified. It never changed ever since I open myself for something like this. Anyway, last week, I received an email from a blogger sister, Mary, if I was open for beauty products. Said yes. And after two or three days, the package is here.













I love cosmetics and makeup just as much as I love clothes and dressup. As a business student and a once-in-a-while beauty blogger, I have this dream of having a cosmetic brand in my name just like Em of Michelle Phan. It may seem impossible, but hey, this post is about Limitless Possibilities.

Let me introduce you to Limitless Possibilities.

What is it?

Limitless Possibilities is a company that will make you both beautiful and self-employed. Members can earn while also using their products by selling it for retail online. You see, you need not be on the go to sell, you just need to be online. Isn't that tad sweet?

Like them on Facebook at #iamlimitless, and follow them on instagram and twitter at @iamlimitlessph.



There were a total of six products that LP (wow, same as my blog, LP for LilPink) sent me. They were body and night lotions, facial wash, toner, moisturizer and soap. All of which were placed inside a bubble wrap which secured everything.









REVIEW



This is the first product I tried. After taking decent photos, I washed my face immediately using this. What I liked about this product is that after you use it, you feel fresh and clean. Though it is not foamy, you will feel the dead cells coming out after using this, which is of course what I really needed. 



I am not a fan of toners or anything that people use to clean their faces even more after washing it. But, I gave this a try pa rin. Well, it does clean a lot. If you have a super clean face, how would pimple even say hi? ;) Unless of course, you are allergic. I still will use this.




The lotions were probably my favorite of all products they sent me. The night lotion was indeed calming. It does not have a striking odor which some of the lotions have. The color of the lotion is actually the same as the bottle, only subtle and pastel-y. 




The day lotion is more like keeping your skin hydrated without being greasy. Oh, I have a bad relationship with lotions that will make me feel sticky and oily. I literally hate them. This one's for keeps.



I may not be a fan of toners, but I am a hella fan of moisturizers/facial creams which I always use as foundation under the loose powder. ;) Mary used to commend how *flawless* daw my face. Lol, it isn't. I have big pores. Luckily, moisturizers/facial creams always do the trick. I will teach you how.

Put a generous amount of your moisturizer/facial cream. Then layer it with loose powder using a kabuki brush. Then you're set. ^^ Don't make it too cakey to avoid looking cakey. lol


Of all the products, the scent of the soap is a thumbs up. It is smells so good, you don't wanna leave the bathroom. :D The color is a plus too. Ohhh pink! :)



The photo above is me a day after I used the products. I am using the facial cream + loose powder as well. ;) I am telling you, it works like magic by hiding all my big pores. haha This is what I call knowing your tools and how they work on you. ;) No blurring or whatsoever photoshop tricks were used on the photo, just adjusted lighting.



Nice try for a wink. haha. Sorry.



PS: Limitless Possibilities is currently holding a contest. It is a 30-day Selfie Challenge which is open to all members. Read the mechanics below to know how to join.

How I Edit My Photos

10 Responses
Most of the bloggers I know have their Photoshop actions already saved which they will use in the future for their photos. I used to use Adobe Photoshop in all my photos. However about two to three years back, I bid farewell to overusing PS and switched to another PS - Photoscape. I still use Photoshop though for some really technical aspects like lasso tool and so on.

I am, for a million reasons, very much in love with the simplicity and user-friendliness of Photoscape. With just one click, your photo is good to go.

The many uses of Photoscape
Photoscape has many functions that is very helpful for every blogger. As you can see in the photo above, here are some of the functions with a self-made description.

  • Editor - If you are editing one photo and want to give it the best edit it can have, this is for you.
  • Batch Editor - As the title implies, this is for bulk images that needs to be edited. One thing to remember when using this is that if your photos have different lighting, etc, the output can be discouraging. However, if you are only using this for watermarking, then this is indeed for you.
  • Page - This is for collaging photos. Simply said.
  • Combine - This is like putting your photos in filmstrip, horizontally or vertically.
  • Animated GIF - Yes, photoscape helps you create your very own gif files. :) #muchlove
  • Print - To further help you with printing settings for the best output for your photos.
  • Splitter - Yes, you got it right. Split your photos into several pieces.
  • Screen Capture - Need I say more?
  • Color Picker - Have you ever had a colour you wish to use but don't know its hexcode? Poof! Here's your help.
  • Raw Converter - Professional cameras and photographers usually use raw photos. To convert this into another file type, you have your partner.
  • Rename - If you don't know SEO, then probably this will be your introduction. Everytime you upload images for your blog, change the filename. (ie, image101 to Travel To Tawi-Tawi)
  • Paper Print - Do you want to print calendars, notebook images, and so on? Here is a real deal for you.
  • Viewer - Lastly, the simplest use of Photoscape - to view photos. 

See Photoscape in action!


Let us apply magic!


Here is the result:


Just clicked a few buttons to add further magic.

How about we add filters available in photoscape?









To differentiate the photos, I put it in one page with the use of Photoscape, of course.


Btw, I only used LOW filters for each of the photos above to keep it subtle. PS has it in low, medium and high.

Here is another fave from PS, the photo splitter.

I hope this helped. Thank you for dropping by my blog.
