Spring’s Beauty

February 26, 2008





This picture from Burberry Prorsum sums up THIS season’s beauty model. It’s extremely rare that the faces of models this season is left almost unscathed by bronzer, isn’t it? Don’t you remember a couple of years ago when self-tanner and a deep bronze tan reigned supreme? I think it was featured so strongly in Versace and other major labels.


I think this look  in the picture is super easy to achieve. Super smooth and flawless skin is obviously the main focus, so EXFOLIATE AND MOISTURIZE! I like Dermalogica’s Gentle Cream Exfoliant. Moisturizer is vital. Try Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer (comes with SPF15, if you like). This leaves your skin surface moisturized and well primed. To give an extra radiance boost to your skin, don’t hesitate to use a primer. Try Laura Mercier Oil-Free Primer SPF20. It leaves the skin with a great glow and just enough radiance to seem like you’re glowing from within. 



Now that you’ve gotten the base right, lightly highlight your face with the very fabulous and my number 1 must-have product YSL Touche Eclat in Number 2 Ivory. Apply it to the planes of the face – your cheekbones, down the nose, the inside of your eye and the brow bone. Now, what you’ve got to do is to contour your cheekbones very lightly – none of that whole harsh lines thing going on. Lightly brush a little of bronzer – I love M.A.C’s Bronzing Powder in Bronze – under your cheekbones to give it a little of definition. Don’t go overboard. Very-much-less is more.



As you can tell, the eyes were kept very natural – I reckon a touch of the YSL Touche Eclat can counter any darkness caused by late nights. As for the lips, a light pink gloss was used – those Stila lip glosses are superb at giving that shine!Tune in for more of my little tricks and tips!

My sister just gave me a great trio pack of MAC products today as an early Birthday present as she’s heading back to Perth end of Feb. I got the Blot powder, blotting paper and strobe cream. As you might already tell, I’ve got pretty oily skin! And the great thing is that the MAC lady told her to get the blot powder as it’s just as effective or even more effective than any oil control lotion.I can’t wait to try these products out and review them for you guys!


MAC Cleansing Wipes

September 9, 2007


Stuck in the car or office or gym and have a full face of grease you can’t wait to wash off, and you don’t have any cleanser around? This is definitely for you. It’s huge (so it’s value for money!), very refreshing, and is super saturated! This has got some vitamin E infused in it, so that prevents your skin from drying out too much. A lot of those lousier, crappier cleansing wipes have got too much toner in it, and that dries your skin out. This is great. Make up slides right off, dirt and grease get zapped away, and your skin is left glowy and smooth! Also, the fact that it’s resealable means that it won’t dry out so easily. Yes, a lot of those wipes dry out even though the seal is on – very annoying. This doesn’t dry out, and is my staple for the gym and flights.


Travel essentials

March 26, 2007

I’ve been doing a bit of travelling..but what I hate most is travelling on a 14-hour plane ride back and forth from London to Singapore and vice versa. My essential’s for a super long plane tripe would be:

Sleeping pills – definitely a must. Would just pick them up from Boots in the terminal.
Laptop – music music music.
MAC Cleansing wipes – to remove whatever dirt and grime
Shu Uemura Deep Sea Water Spray in Lavender – for instant moisture
Laura Mercier Hydro-soothing Gel Masque – for slathering all over the face!
YSL Touche Eclat – to cover up those hideous dark circles
YSL Complexion Enhancer – lovely radiance giver
Dior Skinflash – highlights in a flash
Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream – fantastic moisturizer for the lips
Kiehl’s sculpting hair pomade – to get my trademark sleek hair

Gosh, I really am a sight to be seen on planes. I’ll be flying back to sunny, humid Singapore in 3 days. Really looking forward to it!!
