Second part of my 2017 beauty favourites, in this case I'm showing you my most loved skincare and haircare products.
You can see the first part, the makeup faves here ;)

Favourite lip balm
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment. They totally live up to their hype. The product is hydrating and keep my lips moisturised and soft for hours. Plus all the colour range is so beautiful. I got these three shades so far: Rose, a sheer rosy tint; Petal, a pinky nude colour; and Bloom, a beautiful warm pink.

Favourite masks
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask. This is actually another lip treatment that you apply at night and you'll wake up with a super moisturised lips, it's amazing! If you have lips that are frequently dry give this mask a try!

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask. This is one of those must-have korean skincare products and I totally understand why. I apply this at night time and always wake up with the softest, hydrated and glowing skin. It's super hydrating but I have combination skin and this works great for me. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who needs a hydration boost or who has dull looking skin.

Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Skin Clay Mask. I was skeptical about how good this mask was at first, but I have to say it's absolutely amazing. This mask hydrates, tightens pores, brightens your skin, it does it all! After you wash it off you really do have baby soft skin like it says!


2017 beauty favorites

Favourite Face Serum
Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum. Another K-beauty best selling product I discovered this year and I'm obsessed with. It's very hydrating but it absorbs quickly into the skin, it feels so refreshing. It keeps my skin moisturized, it has a firming effect on my skin and smells very good. Skin doesn't feel oily or dry after application. I seriously adore this product!

Favourite haircare product
Ouai Hair Oil. I This oil smooths without weighing it down and gives such a nice soft touch to the hair. It keeps it looking healthy and tamed, perfect for the Singapore humidity! Plus smells incredible! 

Favourite Skincare Oil
Argan Oil. It was the best discovery of the year! And now I can't live without it! It's packed with so many good things and vitamins for your skin. It's hydrating, anti-aging and works as a eye serum too. It also helps with blemishes and acne scars, this won't clog your pores so it's perfect for all skin types.This will transform your skin!

Favourite Makeup Remover
Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm. This is so effective at breaking down even waterproof eye makeup and rinses away completely.  It does not irritate, cause breakouts, or leave skin feeling dry. It's a fantastic product, I'm already on my second jar !

Favourite Skin Mist
Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist. This is so pricey but so good! I like to use this as finishing spray to set up my makeup and it works wonderfully. I feel like it gives me an extra glow and makes my make-up last for hours.

Rounding up the best of makeup for 2017. These are my most loved makeup products of the year, some of them are new discoveries and some have been around for quite some time, but I love all of them! 
I love doing these posts every year, here we go!


base
Old time favourites and a new discovery...

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisuriser Illuminating is an all-time fave, I'm on my second botte already. I love the soft sheen glow it gives the skin, makes you look awake and healthy. I've tried so many tinted moisturisers but I always come back to this one.

Armani Luminous Silk was the foundation I chose for my wedding so I had to add it to this list. It's lightweight, long lasting, lasts all day and it gives a radiant, natural finish.

Becca Under Eye Corrector has been my favourite product for covering my really dark circles. It goes on so creamy, effortlessly covers dark circles, lifts and brightens the eye area. 

MAC Pro Longwear concealer is my favourite for concealing blemishes or scars. It's so high coverage, waterproof and lasts all day. Perfect for the humid climate of Singapore!

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose PowderIt feels nice on the skin, lightweight and brightens the skin. Great setting powder for the whole face and perfect for baking those under eyes, it really does brighten up my tired eyes.

cheeks 
I needed to include two blushes and two highlighters...

Becca Sunlit Bronzer in the shade Bali Sands is the perfect shade for fair skin and so natural looking too. It's not completely matte but it gives a lovely warmth and glow to the skin without looking too glittery, leaves a super healthy light glow.

Nars Orgasm blusher, a classic! But actually is the blush I reached for the most this year. Beautiful flush of pink with a little bit of shimmer.

Benefit Rockateur has been the blush of my wedding day. It gives a natural warm pink flush and a lovely warm and healthy glow.

Nars Hot Sand (the powder version) might be the perfect highlighter! It was my wedding day highlighter. It really is THE glow-from-within highlighter. It gives such a beautiful glow but looks natural and effortless.

Cover FX Blossom Enhancer Drops. This is so metallic and absolutely gorgeous! Leaves your face SO glowy! A little goes a long way and it's super mixable and versatile.

brows
Benefit's whole range actually.

I genuinely love all the brow range, there's a product for all your needs. Everything I tried I liked. I particularly love the Goof Proof pencil and Gimme Brow gel.

eyes
two single eyeshadows and two palettes...

Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerise in Jean and Mac Soba have been my favourite single eyeshadows. Jean is the perfect champagne creamy shadow for everyday use. It's so pigmented and gives a beautiful effect and glow to the eyes. Mac Soba is the perfect natural shade, a kind of my lids but better colour. It's a warm golden brown with tiny gold shimmer particles.

Too Faced Sweet Peach. This palette is quickly becoming one of my favourite palettes. I really like the selection of colours, love all the peachy shades. And it's so versatile as well, it's perfect for natural day looks and for night time.

Urban Decay Naked Heat. I'm sure you all are tired of seeing this palette everywhere but the truth is this is absolutely amazing! Twelve beautiful warm toned eyeshadows, matte and shimmery mixture, perfect for everyday and night looks.

Benefit They're Real Primer. I love, love, love this stuff. It's a brown tinted primer that can be worn alone or under a mascara. It makes my lashes more defined and super long. It makes a huge difference under your mascara.

lips 
too many favourite lippies this year...

Guerlain Long-Lasting Lip liner in the shade Bois des Santal, is the perfect match for my lips, it's not too brown and not too pink. It works perfectly with all my lipsticks.

Nars Sex Machine Velvet Matte Lip Pencil. The colour is a beautiful mauve pink which is quite subtle for daily use but definitely more interesting than a regular neutral colour.

L'Oreal Erotique lipstick and Burberry Lip Velvet in Nude Rose are very similar actually. They both are warm soft pink colours with a satin finish. L'Oreal Erotique was the lipstick I used on my first wedding and the Burberry was the lipstick I used on my second wedding!

Tom Ford Ford Pink Dusk. Tom Ford's lipsticks are simply amazing and this colour is the most perfect natural, neutral pink shade.

Here are my favourite makeup products at the moment. They're also my typical go-to products for my everyday makeup at the moment. In the morning I reach for those products that will give me a light and glowing face and that will make me look awake. These are a some of my makeup essentials that I use most days for a fresh-faced, minimal and  natural look. 

A lightweight and natural-looking foundation is everything I'm using at the moment. The Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder foundation is an absolutely favourite right now. It's sheer coverage but has enough coverage to even out the skin. It also has such a beautiful finish, so glowy!

Another Charlotte Tilbury amazing product is the creamy shadow Eyes to Mesmerise in Jean. Perfect champagne cream shadow. It's so pigmented and gives a beautiful effect and glow to the eyes.

Becca Under Eye Corrector has been my favourite product for covering my really dark circles. It goes on so creamy,  effortlessly covers dark circles, lifts and brightens the eye area. It's quite thick, so you need just a small amount, or can look cakey. Definitely recommended if you have extremely dark circles. Nars Radiant Creamy concealer is the other concealer I'm using at the moment. I like it especially on days where I have little time to do my makeup. It's a good all rounder concealer, it has a pretty good coverage and works perfectly for dark circles and blemishes.

I'm so in love with the Becca Sunlit Bronzer in the shade Bali Sands, because it's the perfect shade for fair skin and so natural looking too. It's not completely matte but it gives a lovely warmth and glow to the skin without looking too glittery, leaves a super healthy looking light glow. I follow this by applying the Nars Riviera Multiple. It gives a beautiful flush of pink to my cheeks. 

Nars Hot Sand (the powder version) might be the perfect highlighter! It was my wedding day highlighter. It really is THE glow-from-within highlighter. It gives such a beautiful glow but looks natural and effortless. So highly recommended. 

Lastly, another product I'm obsessed with and that I used the day of my wedding. The Guerlain Long-Lasting Lip liner in the shade Bois des Santal, is the perfect match for my lips, it's not too brown and not too pink. It works perfectly with all my lipsticks. I'm so in love with it! I combine the lip liner with the Nars Sex Machine Velvet Matte Lip Pencil. I use this combination almost every day! The colour is a beautiful mauve pink which is quite subtle for daily use but definitely more interesting than a regular neutral colour.

Things I love about Singapore | OOTD at the Chinese Gardens

After almost 8 months living here I can tell you some of the things I adore about this amazing city...

All the variety and diversity. It's an incredible international, multicultural and multilingual city. It is such an international community and culturally vibrant, I feel like they live as one big family and I love that so much.

Public transport. It's one of the best in the world. It's efficient, super clean and reasonably priced. I find the MRT (Metro system) easy to use, well priced and so clean and tidy.

Water. Clean drinking water from the tap.

Shopping. Lots of shopping mall everywhere! I love Orchard Road so much, it's my favourite place for retail therapy. Plus, most shops don't close until late, even till 11pm.

Extremely efficient. Everything seems to work perfectly. Singapore is very well organized and focused on convenience.

Super clean and green. Without a doubt, the cleanest and greenest city in the world, well at least that I have ever seen.

Singapore definitely lives up to its name as a Garden city with lots of parks over the island. I love this fact about Singapore, how green it is, it's amazing! The Chinese Garden might be one of favourite places in the city. I love this place so much, it may not be one of the top attractions in Singapore but is absolutely beautiful. There's something magical about it. I love the calmness and how peaceful is. Perfect for a picnic, for some 'me time' or to get away from the busy city and relax. The garden is so big, with different parts, the pagodas, the bridge, Japanese garden, bonsai garden...A true hidden gem in Singapore. It worth the MRT ride.


I'm definitely overdressed here for Singapore weather but the thing is, inside shopping centers is freezing cold! I always need an indoor jacket for my shopping trips or just for drinking coffee at Starbucks. Plus I wanted to update my autumn wardrobe and checked blazers are the number one trend this Fall. I've been eyeing this Zara blazer for weeks and finally got it recently because it's the perfect checked blazer. I could't resist! It's actually quite lightweight so it'a perfect to carry in my bag and use it as my "indoor jacket" in Singapore.

Trying Fenty Beauty | Favourite lip gloss and highlighter atm

I've been obsessed with these two Fenty Beauty things since I got them a few weeks ago.  Fenty Beauty might be the hottest new makeup range right now, so I definitely needed to check it out at Sephora. I have to say I wasn't so impressed at first, like I thought I would be. But in the end I ended up getting and loving these two items from the range, and here's why...

The Lip gloss lip luminizer I really like! It looks like nothing exciting in the tube but it's actually so good. I like the texture it's super creamy and moisturising. It gives you the right amount of shine leaving such beautiful neutral glow to the lips. It also has a lovely sweet scent that makes it just irresistible. I honestly was a little skeptical at first because the colour in the tube looked a little darker than I normally would like on my lips, but it actually matches perfectly, it gives a great finishing look and it pairs with any makeup look. That's the amazing thing about this lip gloss, looks great on every complexion. Such a great idea.

I also got the Match Stix Shimmer Stick in Starstruck and love the colour of the it. It's a very pretty champagne shade highlighter. The stick isn't very creamy, it does go pretty dry on the skin, it's more like cream to powder formula. It's also quite glittery but as you can see I'm wearing it in daylight and I absolutely love it, the glow this gives is unreal, so glowy! Well, most of the time I want to make sure my cheekbones glow so much they can be seen in space.  Shine bright like a diamond.
