The festive season is all about parties and reunions. But it’s also the busiest time of the year – rushing for deadlines at work, making holiday plans, buying pressies for everyone, and finding the right outfit for every single party/get-together you are going to attend… Just thinking about these is giving you a headache? Don’t worry, ahead are 13 essentials for both high and low budgets that will get you through this holiday season and beyond.
As a beauty addict, I am constantly searching for the next bold, fun and innovative eyeshadow palette or lippie. However, when it comes to my face, I like to keep it to a bare minimum. A face makeup product that smoothes my skin out, evens my skin tone, and leaves me nothing but a naturally glowing face is like meeting Mr Right. Here are my three perfect matches in the non-foundation department that have truly upped my makeup game (as well as efficiency).
Some of my close friends may know I don’t do my nails very often. And when I do? I always turn to Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel range. The reasons are simple – it is super convenient, it lasts for days, and it is way cheaper than visiting a salon. That’s why I got really excited when I received the PR samples on the new Top Coat and limited-edition duo packs for trial.
With the holiday season around the corner, it’s time to plan out our party looks. A while ago, I was invited by Farfetch to enter a party look styling competition. Ahead are the two outfits I have built for this silly season with items selected from Farfetch.
I love wearing maxi dresses in warmer seasons. They are easy to throw-on-and-go, they are super comfortable, and they make you feel glam without looking like you have tried too hard. #IWokeUpLikeThis, anyone? And this navy number from H&M is the latest addition to my maxi line-up.
Sydneysiders would have noticed the purple bloom of Jacaranda is in full swing at the moment. The weather might have been rainy all week, but that didn’t stop the city from being awash by these bright purple patches. And the profusion of the flowers inspired me to build today’s outfit!
If you’ve been following the runway trend closely, you would have noticed quite a lot of designers are in favour of neutral tone or even naked (but buffed) nails in the last few seasons. As a girl who prefers a nude makeup look, I also tend to keep my nails completely naked for most of the time. Therefore, I couldn’t contain myself when I saw the Scholl Velvet Smooth Electronic Nail Care System in Priceline!
When it comes to mascara, Asian brands usually work better for me. My natural lashes lack a curl to begin with, and a lot of the Western brand mascaras weigh them down further. So when I heard about Rimmel London new 24HR Supercurler Volume & Curl Mascara comes with a built-in lash curler power, I knew I had to try it.
