[ Beauty Tips ]

  • Haircare

    1.) Oily Hair :

    - Shampoo like how you normally do

    - Use conditioner

    - After using the conditioner, put a drops of fresh lemon juice all over your hair


    - Shampoo & Conditioner

    - Mix Green Tea Powder with Egg whites (1:1)

    - Put it all over your roots

    - Leave it for 5minutes

    - Rinse it with warm water

    2.) Dandruff Issue :

    - Of course, use any kind of shampoo that is for dandruff

    - Instead of using the regular conditioner, use milk

    - Use about 2 ~3 tablespoons of milk and put it all over the roots

    - Rinse with warm water

    3.) Damaged Hair (From perm or hair color) :

    - Shampoo & Treatment like how you normally do. And rinse it.

    - Mix egg yolk and milk (1:1)

    - Put it all over your hair

    - Wait about 10 minutes

    - Rinse

    * If you're planning on getting your hair permed or dyed sometime soon, you should try this everyday for about 10days before you get your hair done. It will definitely help your hair.

Ladies, hair is very important just as your skin ! It's important that we take a good care of our hair during this cold season!

Another important thing that we all need to take care of right now is our CHAPPED LIPS. Don't you hate it when our lips are extremely dry and get cuts ? well, I am definitely experiencing that right now.

*Tips for your lips*

- Before you sleep, make yourself a steamed towel to put it on your lips (about 5 ~ 10mins)

- Using a Q-tips, rub it all around your lips. It will exfoliate your lips

- Put your chapstick or lip moisturizer (I use the FACE repair balm from Sephora. RECOMMEND IT)

- Put a saran wrap on ur lips (MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE ABLE TO BREATHE..LOL)

- Wait about 5 ~ 10minutes

- Wipe off your lips with a cotton or whatever is convenient for you

* When your lips are EXTREMELY dry to the point when your lips are bleeding, try using Vaseline and honey. ITS THE BEST COMBINATION!


- Warm up a little bit of honey

- Put it all over your lips (it might stink if you have cuts on your lips)

- Use saran wrap to cover your lips

- Leave it on for about 20 minutes

- Wipe it off with a steamed towel

- Put ENOUGH Vaseline on your lips

Until next time, take care ladies !

[ shOrt uPdate ]

First, I'd like to thank all the beautiful ladies for the lovely messages and helping me to learn this whole blogging thing!
Seeing all the interesting and helpful blogs, it makes me wanna update and share my stuff with you all. Even though I'm not a professional make-up artist or knows enough about make-up, I believe that everyone finds a new, interesting and helpful tips from each other. Yea? =)

Anyways, So I have been wanting to update for the longest time. HOWEVER, I totally forgot that my digital camera is broken and I am looking for a new one! So Pleaseeee, if there's a digital camera that you have or you would like to recommend me, let me know =)

OH, So i was supposed to talk about my Sephora packages that I got about 2weeks ago. The package itself was very disappointing to me. I didnt get my 6 free samples that I've asked. Instead, I got a lot of colognes. WTF rite? I'm a girl and I was expecting a girl product AT LEAST but they're sending me a guy stuff? How aweful is that. *RAWR*

So in my package, I got my Guerlain Parure Aqua Radient Feel-Good Liquid Foundation & DIOR Concealer Palette (Thanks to xppinkx)

For my foundations/powders, it's always hard for me to find a right color if i order it online. and of course, I got the WRONG COLOR. ugh... I opened it and tried a little bit on my hand and it was literally like a chocolate color on my skin. LOL...I guess I DO suck at picking out colors BIG TIME. But I've learned my lesson (sort of..heheheheeh). But except the color, I do like the feel of it. It's very hydrating and goes on very smoothly. It's a bit pricey but to me, price shouldn't matter SO MUCH for all of my make-up and ESP. Skin Care products.

I went back to Sephora to return my foundation and got my money back. I was lazy to go back online and order and wait another week to get it. So instead, I'm using my Givenchy Fluid Foundation with SPF 20. But I'll write about that next time.

My other and last product that came with the foundation, Dior Concealer Palette was worth it. Since it's always been hard to find the right color for my skin, using the Dior concealer palette, i can mix the colors to find the perfect color. I do have to say that it's a bit dry for my skin but I only use it on my blemishes right after I apply my foundation (when your skin is moisturized).

So overall, my sephora package was OK because of my samples, came REALLLLLY late (it should've taken about 2~3 days) and because i picked the wrong color which was my fault. hehe..

SO Ladies! when you order a foundation/powder, please be careful and spend enough time to choose the right color for you ! =)


OH, I went to chicago for a night right before thanksgiving day. I got to chicago extremely late and didn't have time to shop because everywhere was closing BUT SEPHORA (it's meant to be hehehehe). So I ran into buy my goodies and I picked out 4 things within 5minutes ($151). *sigh*

But it was something that I've been wanting to buy even though I should've thought more before I bought them. I will WRITE with MORE DETAILS about them next time.

I'm hoping to buy camera as soon as I figure out which one to buy. When I get it, I'll update update and UPDATE =)

Thanks for stoppin by <3>
