One of our cult beauty girlies celebrated her 18th birthday recently, and we’re talking about none other than Careline. Since 2005, the local beauty brand has been one of our go-tos for make-up that have us looking #BetterThanBasic!

The silver was glistening, the gold was shimmering, and the eyeliner was giving as Careline turned House Manila into one of the hottest disco parties in town. Curious to know what went down at Careline’s 18th birthday party? Well, we’ve got you covered with our rundown of a party that had guests embracing their best eras yet.


Careline’s b-day party was all about embracing our main character moment with the theme “Your Era.” So, the night’s ‘fits had guests serving looks in a disco and beat-driven style in snatched shades of white, gold, and, black. Guests, which consisted of the who’s-who of your fave Gen Z influencers, embraced the retro revel energy. Even before they got into the main space, attendees passed through the disco tunnel, which was awash in silver that made for the best photo spot.

As guests mingled amongst themselves and enjoyed snacks and drinks courtesy of House Manila, they had the chance to try out the four (yes, four) photobooths around the venue. Booth one was a Projector booth where partygoers struck a pose in holographic elements on a backdrop.

Booth two was the Doodle and Pose booth, which, as the name suggests, had guests snapping pics and writing birthday messages for Careline that looked like the coolest graph(ink) novel come to life.

Attendees lived their Met Gala fantasy in Booth Three with the Vogue booth that was adorned with lights. And because there’s no such thing as being too extra on your 18th birthday party, Careline’s fourth booth was an IG-worthy mirror vignette decorated with disco balls and stickers.  


Soon, the night’s program began as NYLON Manila’s Editor-in-Chief Ayn Bernos delivered the opening remarks and welcomed guests to the hottest 18th birthday party in town. Aside from commemorating Careline’s 18th, the night also teased the beauty brand’s latest product drops, literally the first public unveiling of their newest expansion innovations to the well-hyped Graph-Ink Liners, which are sure to bring your eyeliner game to the next level!

Given that the official launch of the Graph-Ink Liners won’t be until July, it was a def treat that the attendees got first dibs in trying them out.

After that, it was time to party as DJ Jimmy Nocon got on the turntable with a set that brought the beats and grooves as guests got down on the dance floor. Studio 54? No, it was Studio Careline. Even with everything that was going down, the looks were still slaying, and the eyeliner was legit popping. Speaking of, while everyone served lewks that night, two guests stood out for their head-turning ‘fits and were awarded for it. The Most Extreme of the Night award went to Janio Ezekiel while Best Inked of the Night was given to Angia Laurel.

As the final (winged) tip to the revelry, guests when home with a cool loot bag that contained the never-before-seen Graph-Ink Liners, and Careline merch – a bucket hat, and a mini-shoulder bag. Careline giving away gifts on their birthday? We love a generous queen!

Here’s to more birthdays with the beauty brand. Now, if you’ll excuse us, we’ll practice with those Graph-Ink Liners.
