    5 ways to get the most out of your facial

    A few months ago, my skin went through a bad phase. I had tiny bumps all over my forehead, and I kept getting acne. Everyone I met asked, “What happened to your skin?” – which made me even more upset and self-conscious because I was already trying very hard to not think about it.   […]

    Love it or hate it? Male ambassadors for beauty brands

      Who can resist the attraction of a gorgeous male celebrity, bathed in sensual light, staring into your soul from the pages of a magazine?   However, today, we’re not talking about male celebrities as the ambassadors of men’s skincare/fragrances, but more of men fronting campaigns for brands meant for women.   Korean brand The […]

    Is the ‘cushion makeup’ trend getting a bit out of hand?

    When Laneige launched its then-novelty item, the BB Cushion, back in 2012, nobody could have guessed how big the trend would get.

    The ‘NO MAKEUP’ movement: let go, be free!

    I used to worry a lot about being seen in public without makeup on. That meant getting out of bed an extra hour earlier just to put on my game face, which consisted of eyeliner (a lot), black eyeshadow (a lot) and mascara (a lot, but only on top lashes because I have sensitive eyes). […]

    My current beauty favourites (2016 edition)

    This year, my beauty routine has seen its fair share of ups and downs. I guess that’s life. Haha. But I’ve also been lucky enough to come across a few products that look like they’re real keepers, and hopefully I’ll have enough discipline to stick to the ones that I know will work for me, […]

    Weird (but totally legit) ingredients in skincare

    Back in the day, skincare was all about floral extracts, scientific mumbo-jumbo and a whole lot of hyaluronic acid. Times sure have changed – as women become more well-informed of what they put on their faces, the market has also become way more competitive. K-beauty has also contributed a great deal to this; with the […]

    Lessons I learned from colouring/bleaching my hair

    I wasn’t allowed to colour my hair in high school – the school rules were incredibly strict in general. For example, we weren’t allowed to use hairclips or hairpins. Your fringe had to be shorter than your eyebrows. Your hair at the back had to be shorter than the line where your shirt collar folded […]
