I think it's the best time to have some face talk with my current favorite beauty/ skin care products.


Perhaps, I am a few weeks late of absorbing that I've grown another year older. Surely by now beginning the month of December, it finally struck through. Traveled to Bangkok a few days before my birthday, spending almost a week in a diverse culture of city was truly an awesome experience. I have yet a load of content to write about, but hopefully my Instagram feed could make-up for it now. Festive of activities had been happening, birthday celebrations of my favorite grandma and lolo slash instant family reunion, seeing my cousins in which they're much taller in height.

So back to the self-induced photos and please excuse my sleepy eyes. Recently, I took time on updating my lip color collection. It had always been shades of pink and red consuming my everyday look. After some contemplating, wine-stained lip color won the battle in my head. Though it may be daunting for me considering it exudes a darker aura, nevertheless it's worth it. A few youtube tutorials seen (a Michelle Phan tutorial) and articles read on magazine were of help in choosing the right shade of wine-stained color for my skin complexion. I may not be as courageous to go on a vampy shade of color, and took the lighter berry wine-stained shade with a little bit of plum involved. Above are the results of my experiment, with a directed concept of my good friend Rudstin, involving white sheet and soft hued light.

If there's anything on top of my dresser, these are the things that you would spot on. With an Asian genetics, definitely I lack the volume of eyelashes instead of being wistful about it, I'm trying to comprehend through mascaras. Balala Dance Power Doll Make-up Mascara was definitely a good buy when I was travelling in Thailand. It comes in two, a bottle of mascara and a bottle of fibre. As I would always apply the mascara from root to tip first, and for the fibre wand, quickly sweep at the thinner end, to create the voluminous look of the lashes.

When it comes to accessories, I tend to be minimal. Often I would use a pair of earrings and watch or necklace and watch. Next it would always be my habit to put on red lipstick during those lazy days when I don't wanna go through the process of applying numerous stuff on my face. Forever 21 love and beauty red lipstick is no diggity one of the red lipstick I often use. Pretty much handy to apply to have that glam look during those last minute decisions of having a night out with friends.
