I seem to never get enough sleep nowadays (not because I’m playing Hearthstone late into the night *ahem*) and my skin loves letting me know by giving me a dull complexion in the morning and the random outbreak of pimples on my forehead. So tell me a product with the word “luminous” and you got my attention, such as the Lise Watier Teint Lumière Luminous Foundation.
I have been on a short haitus for the past two weeks, if you haven’t noticed on my Instagram, I was enjoying the beach in the Bahamas! Since I’m waiting for my transportation to the airport in the next few hours, I figure it’s a good time to get back in touch with my blog and all of you guys. You all know I love myself a good cup of coffee (I’ve been gulping cups daily from the cafe…), and I also love a good exfoliating scrub. Merge those two together, and you can find Lyfe Tea JOE Coffee Scrub. I’m usually a sticker to scrubs that are salt based, so it’s my first time using coffee grinds as an exfoliator. I had a good scrub before coming to the Bahamas for some smooth skin while chilling on the beach.
I mentioned in a previous post about how much I rely on my Tweezerman tweezer. Their tools have never failed me in removing hair from my skin, and Tweezerman have recently launched some new tools where you use hair to put stuff on your skin….ie makeup brushes! When I usually think of high end make up brushes my thoughts go to Sephora, but the Tweezerman Brush IQ line is definitely setting a standard.
It’s almost Autumn, but there’s still beautiful sunshine and clouds outside so why not throw on a simple, paradise look to reflect the weather? I won’t physically be anywhere warm in the winter (actually, I’m going to Bahamas in January 2o15!!) but for now, I am enjoying blue on the eyes and pink on the lips from essence cosmetics.
“OMG I’m not readdyy!!” says me at least 3-4 times a week, and my mom walks while I’m applying makeup clumsily. It’s always good to have some products that are fail proof to your knowledge and you can walk out feeling like a Gossip Girl Upper East Sider. This Essence Cosmetics eye makeup look is currently my I-spent-no-time-doing-this-face-but-looks-like-I-did look. [Read more…]
