The modern, working woman has better things to do than just sit around and look beautiful.
Although she is definitely prettier than ever in this day and age, her beauty digs deeper and surpassesÂ face value. Being empowered, headstrong, decisive, adaptable, intelligent and independent are now all part and parcel of the complete package of the 21st century lady.
As women of this caliber, Rissa Mananquil-Trillo and Jacqe Yuengtian-Gutierrez, founders of homegrown cosmetics brand Happy Skin, understand what ladies like them look for when it comes to beauty.
Rissa and JacqeÂ know that that classic pair of power pumps and new midi skirt are absolutely lovely on their own, but trust the founders of Happy Skin to offerÂ the finishing touch to any outfit with their newest offerings out this month.

Welcome their newest Work it, girl! collection into your kikay kits, a collection thatâ€™s dedicated to this kind of woman.
â€œWhether theyâ€™re executives, entrepreneurs, or full-time homemakers, we know how much work women put into their days. So while they fulfill their chosen paths and passions, we want to make it easier for them to look effortlessly polished, with the help of must-have makeup tools,” points outÂ Reena Rosario, merchandise general manager of Beauty Bar, Stores Specialists, Inc (SSI).
The Bullseye Perfect Brow Trio is the first of its kind in our market. Itâ€™s one of the first in the market to â€œoffer a brow pencil, brow powder, and a spoolie brush in a single pen,â€ says Jacqe. It even contains Argan oil to keep eyebrow strands healthy and nourished.
When it comes to their signature Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippies, â€œwe wanted to offer women trendier nude colors, like a rich brown and a terracotta nude,â€ added Rissa. Thereâ€™s one called Wonder Woman, a powerful espresso shade, and another called Slaying It! which is a commanding terracotta brown.

The collection is a ode to long-time partner Beauty Bar of Store Specialists Inc. Itâ€™s also a first for Beauty Bar, making this collection its first ever collaboration with a cosmetics brand.
â€œAs the countryâ€™s first beauty hub, Beauty Bar has established itself as a womanâ€™s go-to store when sheâ€™s about to make her first serious makeup purchase,â€ explains Rissa. â€œItâ€™s an honor that they singled out our homegrown brand for their first collaboration.â€
