NEW LOOK Dress / H&M Rings / RIVER ISLAND Watch / BARRY M ‘Coral’ Polish How lovely it would be to have someone to photograph the many outfits I’ve been sporting recently, outside in the open! *Sigh* My siblings are so busy these days, and I haven’t had the time to take to the streets, my tripod and remote control in hand to do it myself! But one of these days I will. For the time being, I’ll film, and update the blog with indoor shots. Hope you don’t mind too much! I’ve been listening to this song by K.… Read More »

Balance Me Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm

BEAUTY
March 28 2013

I wanted to share with you a product that I’ve recently incorporated into my skin care regime. It’s the Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm by Balance me*. Now I’ve had a fair share of face balms in the past, none too worthy to mention here on the blog, but this, this is amazing. I’ll talk you through the process… I warm a small amount of the balm in my clean hands, then I gently apply it on my face and neck, massaging the balm with my finger tips in circular motions for about 30 seconds. A sweet zesty scent hits me… Read More »

BEAUTY BASICS | Eyebrows

BEAUTY
December 21 2011

Eyebrows. They totally frame the face. I happen to be very particular about my eyebrows, and if they aren’t in a good state, I get in a strop! I get mine professionally threaded at a local Brow Bar, and these can be found everywhere, from malls to beauty salons! I’d definitely recommend this method of grooming, because it leaves the brows looking clean and perfect. If you like doing your eyebrows yourself, I’d advice you to first allow a professional to thread them, so you can have a guide of how your eyebrows should look, then if you want, you can just pluck the… Read More »

BEAUTY
December 19 2011

A look I often sport. It’s simple, and I’m sure everyone can have a go! All that is required is the right blending technique, a little smudged smoky layer, and you’re good. If you want, you can amp it up by increasing the black on the outer corner or even add more liner to the lower lash line to make it even more smokier…it’s up to you! This is just how I achieve mine! Products Used ~ Eyes ~ Primer : UDPP Base : Jumbo Pencil, Black Bean (NYX) Lid : Tempting (MAC) Crease : Cork, Texture (MAC) Outer Corner : Carbon… Read More »
