HAPPY NEW YEAR LOVELIES! It’s 2019, have you made your new year resolutions? Well, I’m not a believer of having concrete resolutions penned down because often, those are probably things you’ll try to achieve only in the first month of the year. For me, it’s about life-long resolutions. I strive to be kinder, to broaden my vision, to watch out for new opportunities that’ll come knocking on my door and of course, to love myself more!
Loving myself means taking good care of my own well-being and that includes pampering my tresses! Before 2018 ended, I took time to indulge in a Tokio Inkarami Hair Treatment at the MOST Instagrammable hair salon in Singapore – Chez Vous: HideAway.
You know how sometimes you need to pay a price for wanting to be beautiful? I love having gel manicure, much more than the regular manicure with nail varnishes because they last so much longer on the nails. However, the regular gel nail polish can be quite damaging to the nails, especially so with harmful chemicals.
Well, if you’re as vain as I am but care about the health of your nails too, you’ll be glad to know that you can now enjoy beautiful and healthy nails with Nail Parfait Gel at The Nail Symphony!
Ever since I embarked on the LA VIDA Eyebrow Embroidery service, I am beyond thrilled how much time I can save in the morning getting ready for work! For me, prior to the eyebrow embroidery, I had to dedicate a whopping 10 minutes to fill in my brows. With my brows already looking full and natural, I can now move on to focus on the other aspects of my day-to-day makeup, such as my eyeshadow look (you guys know how much I love colours on my eyelids)!
About a month after my first eyebrow embroidery with LA VIDA, I had to head back to LA VIDA again for the touch-up service. A touch-up service is important because it will help reinforce the brow colour and shape so that your brows will last for a longer time.
As a teenager, I never liked attending family gatherings. In fact, I DREADED my time there, especially during the Chinese New Year gatherings. Having suffered from acne since I was 14, I was often the talk of the town whenever I was in the same space with my relatives. There’s just something about them that wouldn’t stop commenting on my pock-marked face.
Why I Needed AGNES
Being a sensitive girl, every single comment I received about my acne-piqued skin would kill me inside and bruise my self-confidence. I became apprehensive about leaving the house and indulged in lots of thick foundation to try to cover all my blemishes, but to my horror, made them worse. The makeup on my skin then became another talking point for my relatives because I was then chided for wearing makeup and making my acne worse. Truth be told, those days were like living hell and I desperately needed a cure.
Trust me, I’ve tried many “solutions” in the market, including topical acne treatments, laying off heaty food like chocolate, chips and fried food, Oratane (a.k.a. Isotretinoin, a medication primarily used to treat severe acne), medi-facials (medical facials for acne) and more but none of them worked. Fast forward 10 years now, I’m still suffering from hormonal acne and ugly post-acne scars until I met Dr. Gerard Ee from The Clifford Clinic.
WARNING: REPULSIVE IMAGES AHEAD BUT WORTH LOOKING FOR IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE!
Your brows are the most prominent features of your face apart from your eyes. We already know that a good pair of brows can frame the face. Having the right brow shape also opens the eye area and helps to create a more youthful look.
Achieving that #browsonfleek look can be quite a daunting task, especially if you are rushing for time in the morning before school/work. What better way to save your time and effort to get those perfect brows on 24/7 than with semi-permanent makeup? Semi-permanent makeup procedures have taken over the beauty industry by storm recently, and it’s almost as if every girl I see has jumped on the brow-wagon! Well, to no surprise, I HAVE TOO with the LA VIDA™ Deluxe Creative Brows Embroidery Service. I can finally spend more time with my pillows and bed in the mornings!
Microblading, also known as eyebrow embroidery, is a new and popular technique that gives you semi-permanent, natural-looking brows. It’s a procedure that utilises a micro-blade (essentially a very small blade) to create tiny incisions with loaded coloured pigments that mimic eyebrow hairs. This means that once you have gone through microblading, you will also experience the convenience and beauty of having your #makeuponpoint. Looking perfectly polished before you head out can never be as easy as this, and well, you can finally boast and say, “I woke up like this!”
