Roommates and camera enthusiasts alike were treated to a Saturday filled with make-up and fashion makeovers and a whole lot of photo snaps at the Fujifilm Lifestyle Photofest on September 24 at the TriNoma Activity Center. This event celebrated the launch of Fujifilm’s latest products: the Fujifilm X-A3 and the Instax Share SP-2.

Sample Room partnered with Fujifilm for this event to offer free makeovers to our roommates (and future roommates) who dropped by our booth. After registering to Sample Room or verifying their membership, they were given loot bags and respective numbers for their makeover. They were also given a chance to win at our online photo contest with premier prizes ranging from an Instax Share SP-2 and goodies from Elizabeth Arden and Laneige when they post their creative shots with the X-A3 on their Instagram and other social media accounts.

Performances from Reese Lansangan and a mini fashion show featuring some of the country’s top online influencers and Bea Alonzo, the brand ambassadress of Fujifilm Philippines, also entertained the roommates in the snap-worthy event.

Doors opened at 10 am with roommies and guests slowly weaseling their way to our booth for their free makeover sesh. They were greeted with four talented make-up artists who graced our booth to sprinkle their fairy dust and share their artistry with our roommates.

The queue became long an hour after the doors opened but it was the perfect time to get to know the people within our community. They shared how Sample Room led their way to their Holy Grail products and how it helped them to really think about their purchases and maximize their buying power. LJ, a roommate who attended the event and was one of our winners for the Elizabeth Arden contest, was so in love with the sample sized Ceramide capsules that she got from Sample Room that she immediately bought herself the full size! Other roommates also shared with us what they got from their latest haul in our site.

Last call for the makeover was at 4 pm and the 80+ roommates who got their slice of our free beautifying rendezvous left our booth with happy faces. Roommates who opted out of the makeover were also given loot bags and a chance to win at our online photo contest.

It was, indeed, a fun-filled event and a segue from being just an online exclusive community to having sweet and short conversations from the lovely people who helped us in our quest for empowering YOUR purchasing power as a consumer.

If we’ve learned anything in our pursuit of sharing free beauty samples with our roommates, it’s that Sample Room is a goldmine of wonderful beauty junkies and enthusiasts with the same interest in mind: to find what’s best for us without breaking the bank.

See you in our next round of events, roommates!

8 Eyebrow Hacks Every Person Should Know
Saturday, 17 September 2016

eyebrow hacks

If a person’s eyes are the windows to their soul, then their eyebrows are the curtains that adorn them. Our eyebrows are one of the most important parts of our face because aside from protecting our eyes from debris, it also helps us communicate our expressions as well as assist others in recognizing who we are as individuals.

That said, keeping them kempt is almost a requirement. Paid and free beauty samples alike can help you achieve the look that you want, but of course, knowing how to take advantage of them is the best way to ensure that your eyebrows will look as good as they possibly can.
Check out the following tips to help you do so:

Know the shape of your face

First and foremost is to figure out the shape of your face. The most common shapes range from oval, heart, diamond, round, to square.
It takes the right use of angling to know which eyebrow shape suits your face best. A useful tip in order to figure out the natural contour of your eyebrow is to get a pencil, line it up on your nose upwards, tilt it at around 45 degrees to find out where the arch or point is, and then at 60 degrees to know where the end or tail is.

Match your eyebrows with your hair

Nowadays, colored hair has become a popular trend. Hues of all kinds are used all over, and while that’s all well and good, it’s also important to remember that your eyebrows still have to resemble your hair, or at least fall on a similar level in order to avoid dissonance within your features.

People with bright, light, or a striking shade on their heads should opt for similarly lighter eyebrows whilst those on the opposite side of the spectrum have the option to go for medium or darker shades.

Buy quality eyebrow kits

Just like how it is important to have the right tools for every job, then it’s equally important that you have the proper materials for your brows. Kits come in different shapes, sizes, colors, and kinds, so find the one that suits you and your personal needs and go with it. Not only will they help with some much needed maintenance, but they’ll also ensure that your brows look good every day!

Get the right accessories

The pencil, powder, wax, and spool – the most common eyebrow accessories out there. Know what they’re for, what they do, and how they’re used. As a quick rundown: the pencil is best used to outline the eyebrow shape; the powder for blending the inner eyebrow; the wax keeps the pencil and powder from eroding longer; and the spool is used to mix them all together to ensure a natural look.

Proper maintenance is key

Eyebrow maintenance isn’t all about filling them in and outlining them, after all. Shape your eyebrows neatly with the use of tweezers for plucking; blades for shaving; thread for, well, threading; and a small pair of scissors for trimming.

Use some castor oil

Castor oil has been proven to spur hair growth on the eyebrows. Apply them where needed and then it’s all a matter of waiting for them to grow back.

Bigger mirrors afford a bigger picture

Bigger mirrors offer a better view of your face as a whole as opposed to small, compact mirrors. This will allow you to better see yourself; possible mistakes and asymmetries will also be easier to detect.

“Eyebrows are sisters, not twins!”

The last tip is to remember that your eyebrows don’t have to perfectly mimic one another. There is beauty in the subtle inequality of every face – it’s all a matter of making sure that it isn’t too pronounced.
