All you need to know about lash extensions

What are eyelash extensions? Eyelash extensions are eyelashes that are attached to your own natural eyelashes using a semi-permanent adhesive to make your lash fringe look longer, fuller, and darker. Types of lashes Eyelash extensions come in different lengths, volumes, and curls. Due to different eye shapes and length, the lash artist usually customises the length, volume and curl of the lashes for each individual. For example, to achieve a wide-eyed effect, the lash artist will use longer lashes towards the outer corners of the eyes and shorter lashes in the inner corners. Here is an eyelash extension guide showing the different lengths, volumes (thickness) and curls of the eyelashes.   How to take care of eyelash extensions? Due to the nature of the lash adhesive, customers are advised not to apply any oil-based makeup or use any oil-based makeup remover around the eyes.

Everything you need to know about ampoules

Everything you need to know about ampoules What are ampoules? Ampoules are highly concentrated active serums that come in glass vials, which are specifically designed for one-time use.    Difference between ampoules and serums An ampoule is much more potent than a serum as it has a higher amount of active ingredient. The molecule size in ampoules is smaller than that of a serum, hence can be absorbed better into the skin.   What is the purpose of using an ampoule? Ampoules are used for a short duration to help treat or correct skincare concerns. They should not be used to replace any toners, serums or essences. Ampoules are mostly sold in a package of 5 or 7, where 1 vial is to be used for a single day for a consecutive of 5 or 7 days.   Benefits of ampoules Just like facial serums, ampoules come in different formulas to target a variety of skin concerns such as repairing, hydrating, brightening, anti-aging etc. Hence, if you do not have Continue Reading

Want to Maskfish?

Maskfishing, the new catfishing. This term, which was coined following the rise in usage of face masks, describes people who look better with a mask. Personally, I don’t think there should be a negative connotation to this word. If anything, it is just a new realisation that these people have pretty facial features, which have not been appreciated by others. Now that people recognise that they have pretty features, they should be proud of that! This has given me an idea on how to look more attractive with a mask on! Eyebrows You can disagree with me, but I think the only person who can make having no brows work is Jeffree Star. As for the rest of us, we need brows. In fact, I think having neat eyebrows are the most critical factor in helping us appear done up and ready for the day. You’re lucky if you have naturally thick brows because all you need to do is to ensure it stays in the right shape. As for Continue Reading
