I’ve been asked a lot on why I always have short hair – well, why wouldn’t I? Every other girl in the world seems to have long hair! I’m kidding, it’s simply because short hair is so much easier to manage especially when you’re always travelling like me. With short hair, I don’t have to worry about it too much – none of those time consuming routines that I honestly would be too lazy to do! I like to think of myself as a very practical girl. The simpler the better, and that’s exactly how my approach for beauty and skincare is as well.
I keep it as basic as I could with my skincare regime. When I’m taking my makeup off after work or after a shoot, I first take it off with the Cleansing Facial Wipes by Simple. I love this product, it takes everything off so easily and gently. After everything is all off, I wash my face with the Purity One-Step Facial Cleanser by Philosophy. This facial cleanser does the job perfectly – it cleanses well and doesn’t sting my face or make it feel tegang which I don’t like.
There really isn’t much that I do in my skincare regime… I guess I can say I’ve been blessed with quite good skin; it is neither too oily nor too dry. Maybe it’s because I’m always making sure that I drink lots of water! Oh, speaking of which, I am a firm believer of moisture. I very much believe in using the right moisturizer and right now, I use Purity Made Simple by Philosophy. It works great on my skin and I wear it all over my face before bed time. It’s a must!
Every once in a while I would wear skin masks, but not regularly. I wear them for the fun of it or when I have extra time in my hands – and that doesn’t happen very often, mind you!

My daily makeup, again, is very simple and basic too. Personally, I feel like eyebrows are the most important part of the face. I used to be very loyal to Benefit Brow Zings but just recently, a friend of mine introduced me to Maybelline. I immediately converted to that because not only is it way cheaper, but it is also so much easier to find in stores! I love it – it’s very handy so it’s definitely my go-to eyebrow product for now.
I’m a fan of eyeliner and I alternate between two products; when I need something that’s more smudge-proof or waterproof, I use the Stay All Day eyeliner by Stila. It really does stay all day! Other than this one, I also find myself reaching out for the Maybelline Hypersharp Liner a lot. It works great too – and it’s very convenient for regular, every day wear.
When I want to add a little bit of color in my eye, I’d normally use the Chocolate Bar by Too Faced. It’s my current favourite because of the neutral, nude shades that the palette offers. I don’t really like going over the top with my eye makeup, or my lip color for that matter! I’m very into browns and light colors for my eyes, and for my lips, light pinks are always my color of choice.
Typically, I wouldn’t go for something as bold as a dark red, but as of late I have been getting into more mauve shades!
