Blazer from MAJE F/W 2019

Blazer from MAJE F/W 2019 collection, price unavailable


“Living in the tropics has made me averse to outerwear of all kinds. The weather just doesn't get as cold as to warrant a blazer or coat! But there's no denying the chicness of a blazer even when every other piece in your ensemble is quite plain. It amps your style's beauty a notch higher. So I've decided to finally consider biting the bullet with the MAJE VILIA Noir blazer that's a mix of '60s hip and military chic.”

Our style and beauty picks for september include Fitbit Versa 2™

Fitbit Versa 2™, SGD318


“Exercise is a great way to stimulate our bodies into being healthier and I believe that beauty, at its core, should also include how fit we are from within. With this in mind, my eye immediately caught the new Fitbit Versa 2™, which delivers more advanced health, fitness, and smart features than its predecessors.  It ensures a holistic and more efficient wellness routine. It's also swim-proof, packed with features like Sleep Score and smart wake to make sure I get the most out of my beauty sleep. As the first-ever Fitbit to have an Alexa and Spotify smartwatch experience, it will keep me grounded with all my tasks even when I'm out exercising.”

PAZZION Light Blue Open Toe Block Heels

PAZZION Light Blue Open Toe Block Heels, price unavailable


“When it comes to footwear, I value quality over quantity. I don't mind paying for more as long as the item is worth it. While shoes are often an after-thought, to me, that shouldn't be the case. It's important to pick a good design that can bring out the beauty of what you're wearing. A great pair of shoes will also improve your stance and even the way you carry yourself in social situations. To update my mini shoe collection, I'm thinking of getting PAZZION's open-toed sandals with block heels in light blue. It's so versatile and looks like it's built to last many years!”

LEOWE Mini Lazo bag

LEOWE Mini Lazo bag, price unavailable


“No outfit is ever complete without a bag! Bags are my favourite accessory, and I can never go someplace without them. Aside from keeping my essentials safe, they add a whole other dimension to my look. Still, because I’m a no-fuss type of girl, I hate having to constantly move my stuff when I switch bags. That’s why I’m looking to invest in one with a classic style like LEOWE’s Mini Lazo bag. Despite being small, this one has enough compartments to fit all my essentials comfortably. It’s simple but chic because of its ribbon-like details, making it a completely versatile bag to fit any outfit. “

L’Occitane Immortelle Precious Dynamic Youthcare Cream

L’Occitane Immortelle Precious Dynamic Youthcare Cream, SGD100


“I have dry-combination skin so I need a hyper-moisturising cream that will hydrate my skin and help smoothen textured areas. My skin is also prone to looking dull and tired if not properly moisturised but I’m not a fan of greasy, oily creams. This is why I’m highly looking forward to testing out L’Occitane’s new Immortelle Precious Dynamic Youthcare Cream as it contains Hyaluronic Acid, dry skin’s best friend.”

Pandora Pink Murano Glass Leaf Hoop Earrings

Pandora Pink Murano Glass Leaf Hoop Earrings, SGD99


“Earrings are every woman's best friend. With the Autumn/Winter 2019 season creeping up, I can't help but opt for warm and flattering tones when it comes to my accessories. Pandora is launching its Autumn 2019 Collection, which features a collection of hand-finished designs in shades of pink. The Pink Murano Glass Leaf Hoop Earrings in rose gold is the perfect match to my everyday make up look — au naturel with a hint of rosy pink on the cheeks. A simple yet chic accessory that stands out without even trying.“

Milani Gilded Rouge Eyeshadow Palette

Milani Gilded Rouge Eyeshadow Palette, price unavailable


“This time I’m eyeing Milani’s new Gilded Rouge Eyeshadow Palette. I love it for its variety of colours and how versatile it is; it's great for day or night looks. I heard the pigmentation of the eyeshadow is really good, too, but still very easy to blend. I have very oily eyelids and this eyeshadow palette is said to be one that really stays on. It is definitely an eyeshadow palette that I’d use on a regular basis.”

Pantene Micellar Water Pure & Natul Shampoo

Pantene Micellar Water Pure & Natul Shampoo, SGD14.50 (guardian.com.sg)


“As a person who styles her hair with products and relies heavily on dry shampoo, it's not easy finding a shampoo that can help cleanse my scalp well. That's until I found Pantene Micellar Water Pure & Natul Shampoo. Its charcoal component helps detox my scalp from product build-up without drying my hair. Plus, it makes the scalp and hair feel fresh.”

There are a lot of benefits to getting eyelash extensions. Not having to worry about putting on mascara and having it run during hot days, looking wide awake even with just concealer and lip tint, and having enviably long full lashes that last for weeks. The downside to getting extensions is having them fall off, lash by lash, as the days go by. But there are ways to make sure you keep them on for as long as your next salon visit. Here are tried and true ways to make your eyelash extensions last longer, leaving you looking brighter and fresher than ever.

Avoid getting any liquids in your general eye area for a minimum of 48 hours after application. The lash glue is still drying and any liquid or steam will lead to them falling off faster.

The heavier the lash, the faster they’ll fall. While we know how lovely it would be to have full and luscious lashes, gravity just won’t be your best friend. Ask the specialist for individual lashes around the .07 mm and .05 mm range, which will stay on longer than heavier lashes.


Ditch the Cream



If you use heavy creams, from moisturisers to eye creams, it’s better to avoid your eye area while applying them. The oils in such products cause the glue in your lashes to break up, leading to premature fall out. Generally speaking, if you have lash extensions, it’s better to avoid oil-based products.

Any rubbing or friction to your eye area can cause your extensions to fall, especially as you sleep. Lying on your back allows your lashes to stay in place longer.


Avoid Using Waterproof Makeup



Waterproof products are generally harder to remove, especially waterproof mascara. Even with lash extensions, the added dramatic effect can sometimes be hard to resist. However, this leads to tugging or using oil-based removers that affect the longevity of your lash extensions. So it’s best to use non-waterproof makeup or opt for gentler non-oil-based makeup removers as much as possible.
