Ageing, a process that comes hand in hand with time. Most of us are afraid of ageing for it takes away the youth from our faces. Even in our twenties, we are constantly urged to prevent and take care of our skin. Take into consideration the amount of effort most people put in just to prevent the signs of ageing; be it sunblock, anti-ageing skincare or even aesthetic procedures.
However, did you know that our hair itself is prone to ageing too? Neither did I, until I discovered its importance at TrichoKare, a leading trichological centre that provides expert solutions on hair and scalp problems.
Our hair betrays our age. No matter how supple your skin looks, if your hair is thinning, brittle or lacklustre, it will instantly be a giveaway sign. Personally, working in a high stress environment, I constantly battle with random white hairs sprucing out of nowhere. It was exceptionally obvious when I had jet black hair. Thank goodness, with my blonde locks now, I can mask the fact of my premature greying hairs. Masking it is simply a temporary solution until I discovered TrichoKare's Advanced Age Defying Hair Treatment, a scalp treatment that is specially developed to combat hair ageing and age-related changes in the density & diameter of your hair.
Ciao, my beautiful internet friends! The long awaited reveal on what I did at Kowayo Aesthetics in early May this year is finally here! 2017 felt like a year for fillers. Almost everyone is getting fillers because it is a quick fix to get instant taller, more defined features without going under the knife. It is so accessible and the procedure can be done in under 30 minutes. Why would anyone want to get an operation done anymore?
Taller Nose Bridge Without An Operation? Yes!
Approximately 1.5 years ago, I had my first nose fillers experience. I love the definition of my nose but I wanted something slightly taller so that it would still look defined without spamming half a pan of highlighter. During my consultation with Dr Wong, I briefly mentioned about my concerns and he recommended a slight top of of fillers with an added touch of Botox. Yes, BOTOX! It is possible for the nose so if you are interested in minimising the size of your nose without going under the knife, this treatment will be your saving grace!
Woohoo, three cheers to my favourite festive season that is coming right up! Who else is looking forward to sipping a cup of hot cocoa and binge watching Netflix? Alright, I am sure we do this everyday and it does not have to be Christmas but this is THE SEASON where brands would throw out exciting limited edition drops with the prettiest packagings. Of course, L'Oreal Paris never fail to surprise us and I promise, you are in for a treat! Nuff' said, let's get into the nitty gritty as I will be sharing with you must-haves this season!
Just a few weeks ago, we were shook by the launch of Fenty Beauty in Sephora and I still can't get over the 40 foundation shade range feat pulled by badgalriri herself! Alas, she definitely did stir up some awareness on diversity cuz' following to her launch, even big players were striving extra hard to market their own foundation shade range that was previously less talked about. Kudos to you, RiRi!
However, despite all the hype, even I myself was disappointed that there were no eyeshadows or lipsticks in her first drop. Well, I guess Fenty Beauty already had some out of the world plans in mind because for their Holiday 2017 Collection, we are graced with an array of interstellar glittery eyeshadows as well as futuristic metallic lippies. Received The Galaxy Collection just two days ago and I HAD TO quickly put together this post cuz' I know you darlings are waiting.
Clinique has always stood out to me as a highly professional & clinical (haha, pardon the pun) brand that may be slightly daunting to first timers in skincare. Rest assured, Clinique is definitely one of the most skin-friendly brand with a team of experts that are so nice, you may mistake them as your friends! Been there, done that! Don't be afraid to approach any of the friendly Clinique counter experts to access the condition of your skin, products can only work for you if it is meant for your skin type. ;)
Awhile back, I had the opportunity to undergo a full skin "checkup" at the Clinique counter and got my skincare regime customised by the experts. My main issue is acne. It is literally the bane of my existence and it NEVER stops coming back. One moment, I will have crystal clear skin and the next, it is like an epic volcano eruption all over. That being said, after clearing up the mess, there is always the aftermath of scarring. So here is when Clinique's Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector & Optimizer comes into play. Phew, it is a pretty long name for a bottle of skincare, no? Jokes aside, if you are in the market for a product to reduce discolouration on the skin without further aggravating its condition, you may want to stick around to find out more about this futuristic dual chamber serum!
REVIEW: Glam Up In Seconds With L'Oreal Le Stylo Smoky, True Match Crayon Concealer & Superstar Duo Liner
My biggest trick when it comes to eyeshadow application is blending! It is the most underrated skill taught in makeup schools but is SO IMPORTANT when it comes to perfecting your makeup. On top of using the right tools, it actually takes quite a bit of skill and patience to get that perfect smoky look. Even for a frequent makeup wearer like myself, I sometimes do find it a chore especially when I am working with products that are really chalky and difficult to blend, or simply, have terrible pigmentation to begin with.
With my recent discovery of L'Oreal Le Stylo Smoky, my daily eyeshadow routine is now a piece of cake. This super cool 2-in-1 product has a retractable ultra-gliding eyeshadow stick on one end and a handy kabuki brush on the other. Oh, and did I mention that the shadow stick is extremely pigmented as well? Yup, tell me about it, the Le Stylo Smoky is my new best friend and is gonna be yours too! ;)
