While the holidays spell good cheer and good fun, there is one thing that many want to avoid, but just can't during this season – awkward questions from nosy relatives.

The questions can range from "Bakit wala ka pang boyfriend?", "Kailan ka mag-aasawa?" or "Kailan ka magkaka-baby?" to "Parang tumataba ka?"

While you would likely want to reply with a harsh "None of your business," the art of diversion and grace under fire might work best.

Here are some tips on how to best respond to awkward questions and give yourself a boost of confidence to gracefully face any awkward situation. 

1. SMILE WITH CONFIDENCE. Never show them that you are irked. Instead of giving them a harsh tongue-lashing, flash your pearly whites and show them that you can find happiness on your own. 

To make your smile even brighter, put on a swipe of alluring red such as EB Advance LTD Liquid Lipstick (P185), which comes in 12 mesmerizing, high impact shades. 

2. EYE TACTICS. We don't want drama – except when it's on our lashes. Capture everyone's full attention and steer the conversation towards more positivity with the help of EB Advance Lash Define Waterproof Mascara (P250). With its dual brushes for your top and bottom lashes, this mascara gives you smudge-proof, waterproof volume. 

3. SHAPE AND SCULPT. If they utter the dreaded "Uy, tumataba ka," get ready with your contour and highlighting powder. Feel more confident to face everyone with beautiful cheekbones and a soft, radiant glow care of EB Advance Contour Shade and Light Palette (P415). 

Featuring three shades for contouring and three shades for highlighting, this palette helps you to effortlessly sculpt and slenderize your features like a pro. It easily blends into skin and sets with a soft, matte finish, so you look fresh for hours.


This palette is also so versatile as it flatters every skin tone, so you can easily share this with your sisters. 

When confronted with prying questions, display grace and confidence, which are key to overcoming any awkward situation. 

Remember, the greatest gift you can give others is your joyful presence, so look and feel beautiful.
