by Erica B. San Diego, FEBRUARY 2021

In 2019, Oxford dictionary made space for ‘Philippine English’ words like ‘kikay kit,’ a bag for holding toiletries and cosmetics. As part of taking care of oneself, a typical Filipina usually keeps a kikay kit.

Curious to know what’s inside a typical MPT South employee’s kikay kit and must-have? Let’s find out.

SOUTHLINK: What makeup will you use to finish your date look for Valentines that is inside your kikay kit?

LESLIE: Valentine’s Day is special because I will spend it with my family. For my look, I always want my face fresh and radiant, the one that still shows my real skin. So, I’ll be doing the same go-to makeup look. I will apply a subtle amount of watery essence to keep my face fresh and hydrated. The look with my brows styled the way I want it. I will also put tint to my cheeks to give enough blush.  Of course, lip tint so I won’t look pale if I remove my facemask.
