Tip: Blemish Free Face Post Travel

I remember complaining that I always had a zit here and there after travelling. I always wondered why and I thought it might be due to the fact that my face was extra dirty from all the sight seeing and exploring. I went to Melbourne for 2 weeks and came back with a few big zits on my chin and nose. I went to Singapore and came back with more blackheads than ever. So I decided to experiment with my cleansing routine. I recently came back from Hong Kong, and my face DID NOT break out!

 

I was armed with 3 main things.

1. Simplicity - I only had a cleanser, toner and moisturiser (and of course sunscreen for the day)

2. EXFOLIATE!

3. MASK

Dior Bonne Etoile: Look 2 (with Step by Step guide) Using Brown and Mint

As with all my other looks, this can be done using any of your own eye shadows. Here, I am using only 2 colours from the Dior Bonne Etoile eye palette, and that is the centre shade (brown) and the bottom right shade (seafoam green / mint). The seafoam green can be easily replaced with the bottom left shade which is the darker teal. I have tried both, and they are just as gorgeous! Below is the step by step guide, super easy to follow!

Dior Bonne Etoile: Look 1 (with Step by Step tutorial)

There were some requests for a tutorial on how to use the Dior Bonne Etoile eye palette. I decided to do maybe 2 or 3 ways to wear this palette, because of the interesting colour combinations of this palette. Today, I will feature a very simple look for day time. If you don’t have this palette, you can use any silver/taupe, blue and brown.

For this look, I will be using 3 colours that cut diagonally from top right (silvery taupe) to centre (brown) to bottom left (dark bluish teal).

A 15-minute Quickie: A Fresher Face For A Night Out Right After Work

You have a wedding dinner to attend right after work. All you have time to do is to get a quick shower and probably touch up your face. Then you realize the eye shadows were a mess, the blush has faded and your face is in serious need of fresh foundation. I hate having to rush after a tiring day at work. However, I had no choice but to do the best I could.
