We got to sit down for a quick chat with Anne Curtis at the launch of BLK Cosmetics' K-beauty line at the Dessert Museum, where we talked about a possible release of a skincare line, the perfect summer makeup of the day and so much more. Check out the full interview below:

Are you planning to release a skincare line for BLK Cosmetics?

Anne Curtis: *laughs* There are a lot of people asking already, actually! Maybe one day but for now, we're just focusing on cosmetics pero hindi malayong mangyari.

Do you follow the 10-step Korean skincare routine? What's your skincare routine?

Anne Curtis: No! Honestly now, I love their masks so during my last trip to Korea, I hoarded all their masks so now I have a lot of Korean masks! Uhhh, but that's it. I mean, of course, removing of makeup is a given thing but in terms of Korean skincare, I just use the mask.

Any embarrassing makeup mistakes in the past?

Anne Curtis: Ang dami! I started in the industry kasi 90s so ang dami. The worst I can say is concealer – super white concealer under the eye, nauso kasi siya e, tapos you seal it with powder of the same color so yun. Definitely no more na, I don't even use concealer anymore. 

What's the perfect summer MOTD (make up of the day) using BLK?

Anne Curtis: It would definitely be a toss between our lip & cheek water tint and the creamy cheek paint; but maybe for the beach, I would suggest the tints.

Describe your current style in 3 words.

Anne Curtis: Fun, crazy and cute!

Dream travel destination this summer?

Anne Curtis: London... which is where I'm going in two weeks because I'm running the London Marathon. So, that's it and then back to work the very next day! 

K-dramas you're currently watching?

Anne Curtis: I'm Not a Robot! It's so good! Oh my gosh, I actually look like her today minus the hair – the outfit lang but it's peach. Anyway, it's what I'm watching now and oh my gosh, it's so cute! Before watching it, I was watching a heavy Korean drama so I needed something light and I'm Not a Robot is perfect.
