Dear Morena,

Welcome to The Morena Next Door, a lifestyle website curated by your friendly neighborhood morena.

She is the best friend you confide in, the girl friend who knows exactly which lipstick shade or eye palette to wear on your first date with your crush, a doting daughter who’ll go out of her way to get you the medicines and give you the hugs you need when you’re feeling unwell, or the perfect stranger you meet on a fine day.

Here, we can talk more about makeup, passion projects, new hobbies that excite you, food, and practically anything that makes you and me beautiful inside and out. As I begin, please join me on this seemingly endless pursuit of discovering what puts the modern Filipino face forward. Morena, or not.

Let’s save the day, one lipstick at a time, shall we?

With Love,
