When I first heard of cleansing oil – I thought it was the most ridiculous thing ever. I get oily fast and blotting sheets are like my best friends, so the idea of putting even more oil on my face was way out of the question. I always thought it would clog my pores even more and lead to a crazy amount of breakouts. Lately though, actually make that a few months now, I’ve been using a cleansing oil to take off my make-up before cleansing again with my normal cleanser and I have found it to be one of the best inventions ever. It is definitely something not to be intimidated —–> Read More

There are a few ways that I make sure that I keep on top of makeup trends! Other than watching what people are doing on the street, I also make sure I observe what make-up is being put on the runways and done for celebrities at big award ceremonies like the Golden Globes 2014 that recently happened. Here are my top favourite looks from the Golden Globes and what I think is trending.

1. Pop of Color Lips

Thankfully, this is probably my favourite trend of all. A pop of color on the lips whether it be pink or orange or even a burst of red is what I like best. I mean, it’s the Golden —–> Read More

I can’t say I don’t have a massive perfume collection, I do. Almost every semester brought me to this one perfume store in Melbourne Central during every exam season and buying a perfume because a stress releaser for me. I guess you could say it wasn’t too healthy for the wallet but I just love smelling good. I think every woman should and the beauty of it is that smell is so personal – not only in scent but also the memories that each perfume carries. Out of my entire collection – you could say three stand out the most. Whenever I open any of these perfumes I’ve chosen today, it brings back a wave of memories. It’s like opening this huge time capsule. I thought it would be fun to show you some of —–> Read More

Ever so often, I like to update you on life, what goes on behind the scenes. – you know that stuff. June has been a pretty crazy month and so has the past few months ever since I came back from London. I launched the online store, I’ve been working on the blog part time and I’ve been a full time, professional and certified make-up artist. I juggle this between filming for Mediacorp ToggleTV (I have my own series called Beauty Basics now), voice-overs and speaking and hosting events too. I guess that’s what I do, although sometimes I feel like a third culture kid trying to explain it. Despite —–> Read More

This is the only time I get to wear bad make-up and get away with it. I have to admit it and I’m sorry if I sound mean but there are times when I just wanna help a gal out. Either in the MRT, mall or even on the street, sometimes I just wonder what’s going on in their heads when they put on their make-up this morning. Being a make-up artist, it’s really hard not to look. Here are my top 5 make-up pet peeves (peeves are things that really annoy you) and how to fix them! They’re common make-up mistakes that everyone makes! Not like you gotta fix them for me, but let’s just say you gotta help yourself.

I’m sure we all know how to conceal, but what about colour correcting? No, I’m no talking about slapping on another foundation or concealer to “colour correct” our skin, but using actual cream colours to do the job. Using green and purple concealers might only make sense if you’re helping do Barney the Dinosaur’s make-up, but it can really actually help you achieve an even flawless base under your make-up. This is colour correcting.

Today I’m using my favourite which is the Make Up For Ever Camo Cream Palette. I always use this palette when I need to colour correct my —–> Read More

I know it doesn’t look like it but I’ve actually been battling acne for a long time. My skin has attitude and breaks out in different periods of time for what seems like no absolute reason. It can have periods of peace and then have periods of war and you can see the war coming with small tiny bumps spread across my face. Thankfully, it has prepared me for battle so here I am sharing some tips to help keep your skin clearer including what works for me and what doesn’t.

1. Spot Treatment – Proactiv Repairing Lotion

Hey Everyone,

I can’t believe it’s over in two weeks. I still remember packing my bags (albeit very last minute), hopping on a plane and getting on the tube to my very first day of school. And now, it’s already week 7! Finally attending make-up school was a big dream of mine. Even though to be honest most of my friends and family questioned what more I could learn there, I learned an immense amount. It wasn’t so much about theory, but the experience of applying make-up on people day in day out and being professional about it is what helped! In fact, applying make-up on someone else is totally —–> Read More

I don’t know about you but in the fast and busy pace of today, I’m always on the look-out for multi-taskers and as a make-up artist, it’s really important to find products that are multi-use so that we can save space in our kits, and save time. Here’s three products that you can use for multiple uses and are ever so handy on the go, travelling or if you’re just plain lazy. Tsk Tsk. Jokes.

1. Superhero Stick Foundations

Any foundation that you use can be “doubled up” to act as a concealer. What a concealer really is, is just product that has concentrated pigment, more concentrated than your foundation so —–> Read More

Hey Everyone,

Everyone knows that one of the costs to being is make-up artist is how ridiculously expensive make-up can be. I find myself buying make-up shades that aren’t for myself, cool blushes and lipsticks and crazy colours – plus the odd accessory like sponges, disposable mascara wands, Q-Tips and skincare for toning, cleansing and extra moisturising. In fact, building your make-up kit can be tough. But, here are a few tips from make-up school that may make it easier on your wallet!

1. Mix and Match

They say that if a foundation is in the same line and is composed of the same texture, you can mix shades to get —–> Read More

Hey Everyone,

We’ve all been there. We’ve just finished an amazing smokey eye but the eye-shadow has gotten all over our cheeks and underneath. If we touch to remove it, it smears making it even worse. Here’s an really simple solution to clearing up the mess in no time:

Really all you have to do is get a Q-tip or fold a cotton pad into a tip and apply some foundation on the back of your hand. Using your Q-tip, grab some of the foundation, smear it until just a bit is on the Q-tip and wipe and swipe away the eye-shadow. Not only does it remove the eye-shadow, it also —–> Read More

The first time I spotted Caviar nails, it instantly reminded me of yummy vanilla cupcakes and sprinkles. Of course, I thought it was a bit odd and then it grew on me. It’s an adorable nail trend and after seeing Fleur De Force’s blog post on the MUA (Make Up Academy) Nail Constellations, I had to go out and get myself some from Superdrug, the local health/beauty pharmacy in London. It’s much like Watsons in Singapore or Priceline in Australia. I obviously couldn’t wait to sprinkle magic on my fingernails so here’s my first try at it! I think the MUA Nail Constellations are great, they’re the cheaper version of the known Ciate nails and only cost me about £3!
