Anne Curtis has been known to come out on tv with very minimal makeup – groomed brows and striking red lips. It’s no surprise that she launches her own makeup line with the same principle: simple and uncomplicated.
Partnering with businesswoman Jacqe Yuengtian Gutierrez, Anne Curtis’ most recent venture is blk cosmetics. Held at Manila House, blk had an intimate launch for media and blogger guests.
blk stands for the color black- something timeless, elegant and uncomplicated. Unlike a lot of brands in the market that offer trendy items, blk aims to stand out by going back to the basics.
Here are some of the most noteworthy products:
