As the saying goes, the eyes are the window to your soul--so it's better to keep them looking beautiful. Accentuating your eyes brightens up your face and adds character to your daily #FOTD. You can do this by either putting on eyeliner or by keeping your lashes luscious and lengthy. We personally prefer the latter. 

With Lancôme Gandiose Wide-Angle Fan Effect Mascara, it's totally possible! The swan-neck wand allows you to reach every lash from corner to corner. The eye elastomer molded brush in monoi flower shape also allows for maximum and even deposit of the formula for the smallest lashes to be coated. The formula is ultra black, glossy, quick drying, and is the only formula with rose-cell extract so lashes remain soft and supple.

"I have always been a big fan of mascara and I take extra time and effort every time I apply them. I like to see my eyes appear to be more attractive and bigger with mascara on. Recently I tried on Lancome Grandiose Smudgeproof Mascara and I fell in love with the packaging of the mascara and the swan neck wand. It has the 3D black rose on the top of the applicator and it’s so nice! 

"The mascara needed 2-3 times application to achieve that extra long and full lash effect. It was also quite easy to handle the swan neck wand. I applied it in a zig-zag motion to achieve the effect. The best thing about it-- it lasted the whole day with no smudges! Plus it’s really easy to remove at night--you'll feel the rubbery-like fibre coming out from the lashes easily then it comes off totally clean."

"Overall, I would recommend this mascara to my friends and the packaging itself it’s worth to keep! "

There are days and activities that you need not put makeup on such as going to the beach or taking a short trip to the market to buy groceries. If it bothers you to go out of the house and be seen with just your skin--no BB creams, concealers, and lipsticks, then you might not be as skin confident as you think. And it might be time to change that mindset!

Do you have a daily skincare routine?

We don't blame them, who wouldn't be bothered with a big zit or few post-acne scars showing on their face? Therefore, channelling a new found confidence in you and your skin will help you go further in life.

Long hair can be pretty high maintenance, especially this summer. If you want a refreshing and younger look--go to the short cut route and try chopping of your hair. There's the blunt cut, the lob, and the pixie. Just take your pick! 


Add Some Bangs

You can either cut your own bangs or go the easy and fun route by using clip on bangs. It's an effortless way to change your look throughout the day and easily go back to your normal look at night. It's also a way to make statement because only a few girls can pull-off bangs.
