“A flower cannot blossom without the sun; a man cannot live without love…” and I say, our health and beauty cannot blossom without supplements.
I used to be sceptical about health supplements when I was younger as I never thought they were effective. However, fast forward many years now past my mid-twenties, I finally understood the importance of healthy living.
While I try to eat healthy whenever I can, there are days when I just don’t have energy to care about what I take in. Either I’m too stressed out at work, or I’m out drinking at the bar till late. On days like these, I can visibly feel a difference in my body, especially the look on my skin. Hence, I rely on Swisse health supplements to replenish the minerals/vitamins I need. I usually shop my supplements from iHerb because it carries a wide range of brands and products.
Your hairstyle can make or break your overall look, don’t you agree?
Occasionally, I like to switch up my hair style to refresh my look. Thanks to the invitation from The Comb Singapore, I got to change my hair colour and treat my dry/unruly tresses.
About The Comb
The Comb came about when Creative Director Rina Kil and her partners decided to start a hair salon with a “straight-to-the-point” problem-solving concept. The name was inspired by Rina’s family heirloom – a Mother-of-pearl comb by a late relative who brought her through childhood in Seoul and told her to “Galida (Comb) your hair and show the world what you’ve got.”
Cleansing is a vital step to anyone’s skincare routine. It is particularly important for a daily makeup user like me. After a full day at work, I’m always excited to go home and indulge in some pampering. This includes spending some time on my skincare routine. Now in my mid-twenties (omg how time flies!!!), I pay extra attention on the products I use on my skin.
I wear waterproof mascara daily – the Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof. Being a waterproof formula, it’s not easy to find a cleanser that effectively removes all traces of this. I’m so glad that the Drunk Elephant Slaai™ Makeup-melting Butter Cleanser can!
If there is only one beauty brand I can use for the rest of my life, it would be Tom Ford Beauty. I first fell in love with the brand for its lipsticks. One of the first few luxury lipsticks I bought was the Tom Ford Lip Color Shine in Willful. I didn’t know much about TF’s lipsticks, but I really wanted to own one because of the luxe packaging. Then I remember being disappointed at how the lipstick didn’t have the iconic “TF” engraving, haha! Fast forward many years now, I’m finding myself falling deeper in love with the brand.
Whenever Tom Ford Beauty launches something, I get all excited! You can be assured of the packaging, quality and texture of the products. Recently, a new line of liquid lipsticks has been populating my vanity table and it’s the Tom Ford Lip Lacquer Luxe, both Matte and Vinyl.
TOM FORD eye quads have been one of my most prized possessions in my makeup collection. I don’t have many – just two – because it’s not easy to captivate my heart especially since I work with so many colours and textures daily. I’ve had <Cocoa Mirage> for a couple of years now and was thinking of adding another quad to my TOM FORD beauty collection but wasn’t very compelled until I met <African Violet>.
<African Violet> consists of four opulent complementing shades for anyone to achieve multiple looks, from a bold, smokey eye, to a sexy slash of colour. The reason why I couldn’t shake this palette off my mind was because of the gorgeous orchid purple shade that stood out! I knew I had to get it after weeks of contemplating.
