HALLOWEEN MAKEUP FUN

HALLOWEEN MAKEUP FUN

Oct 30th, 2018

Halloween is literally just around the corner! Believe it or not, even though I had dressed up in various characters throughout the year since I moved to US, I had never done a face paint. After my team learned that, they decided I have to do a Halloween makeup/paint this year.

After a brief debate on who is going to do it between myself and one of my teammates, I gave in. Here is the video of of me getting my Halloween makeup done. But before you proceed to watch this video, I have some EXCITING news to share! I am going to do a beauty product GIVEAWAY along with this video to add spice to this spooky holiday. For those of you who like, comment and share this video, you will have a chance to win: (more…)

I used to get facials once a week when I lived in China because it was an affordable way of maintaining my skin healthy. However, when I moved to the U.S I was sad to realize that, in comparison to China, facials were not only unreasonably expensive, but the quality was not as good. That is, until I met Sally-Ann from Into Eden. (more…)

July 31st, 2017

For those who follow my blog regularly, you may remember in a previous post — Ride or Die Makeup 2017 , I recommended my favorite eye liner — stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner. Interestingly enough, a product review research company contacted me couple weeks ago, telling me the Stila Eye Liner made it to top 6 eye liner products in their recent research. Oh Yeah!

BEST MAKEUP REMOVER PRODUCTS

BEST MAKEUP REMOVER PRODUCTS

July 31st, 2017

If there’s one rule we’re told never to break in the beauty world, it’s removing our makeup before bed.
Every day we put on a lot of skin care products plus makeup. In the end of day, our pores are filled with leftover makeup residue or mixture of sweat and dirt. A good cleaning product not only ensures you clean off all the residue, but also maximizes the absorbance of skin care products.

I have personally tried MANY different makeup remover products over the years. Brands include Dior, YSL, Laura Mercier, Lancome, Purity, La Prairie, Chanel, etc. Some of them remove makeup but are too pricey, some of them sting when applying to the eyes, some of them don’t clean makeup well at all, even after two or three times of application. I was never really satisfied with any of those products.

RIDE OR DIE MAKEUP 2017

May 23rd, 2017

I am super excited to share with you my first beauty product post!
I am going to show you what my “ride or die” makeup items are for 2017. What is “ride or die” you ask? If you could take to a desert island only ONE makeup item from each category (foundation, blush, mascara, lip products, etc.), which would you choose?

FOUNDATION:  Ever since I started this fashion blog, I have been paying extra attention on makeup products that are ideal for photos. You can imagine why : ) I have been happy with the Givenchy Photo’ Perfexion Fluid Foundation from Sephora. It is easy to apply, has light coverage with SFP 20, and your skin looks natural & luminous after application. More importantly, it works well with all lightings!
