It was definitely an honor to be a part of one of the most trusted make-up brand's 17th anniversary celebration. 

Last May 12, 2017, MARY KAY hosted an intimate gathering in Sea Green Cafe in Davao City together with selected local bloggers to celebrate its 17th anniversary in the Philippines. This date also coincided with the birthday of the brand's found, Ms. Mary Kay Ash (born in May 12, 1918). She would have turned 99 years old that day.

The cafe was humbly filled with mild pink and very chic floral decors. The table was also filled with small bowls of chocolates which was Ms. Mary Kay Ash's favorite.

Selected members of the media and blogging community in Davao City got the chance to learn more about the brand's skin care products, the importance of each skin care product and also took part in a very brief but informative make-up workshop with the manager for Products and Consultant Marketing Services, Mr. Gian Ruiz.

Ms. Sobee Duenas, General Manager of Mary Kay Philippines, shared that Davao City has been a significant part of their Living Beautifully journey and growth in the country and that is why they chose to celebrate such milestone in the city.

One of the great reasons why there are millions of very loyal Mary Kay customers here in the country and in abroad is because the brand consistently delivers the benefits and needs of women at a price that is affordable. The products are carefully studied and made sure by a global team of scientists to produce the best skin care and make up line for women of all ages.

Mary Kay also gives women the opportunity to be their own bosses and skip the 9-5 work routine by honing their knowledge on skin care and make up. They share what they know about skin care and make up to other women and at the same time, earn from doing something that they love without the need to feel trapped in the four corners of an office.

Fellow blogger Arianne Buenviaje of who is a former Mary Kay Philippines Beauty Consultant shared her experiences with Mary Kay to the invited guests.

Mary Kay has grown to become one of the biggest cosmetics companies in the world, with already millions of independent beauty consultants in more than 50 countries on the globe, including the Philippines.

Special thanks to Mary Kay for the gift of beauty through this golden shimmer eyeshadow and also their lovely bronzer. Can't wait to use these on my next date night with Mr. A.
