Hairdo: Nothing is more important than having a hairstyle that is both comfortable and matches my current lifestyle. The great smell of shampoo and conditioner sometimes is even more attractive than any perfume. C.O. Bigelow Mentha Hair Invigorating Shampoo seems a good choice for me lately. It leaves my hair and scalp super-clean while adding necessary volume and shine. CHI flat-iron straightens my front hair which is curly in born.
Skincare: On my 39th year old birthday, I received a box of L’occitane soap from Alexa and started using it for face cleaning. It gives me surprisingly good results with the combination of sea salt crystal. As an acne fighter for over 20 years, I know it is a miracle. For the moisturizer part, I was a good supporter of Kose products for many years before I switched to other brands such as DHC and Olay. Finally I settled down on CeraVe, which was originally recommended by my son’s dermatologist. Cheap and effective.
Makeup: If someday I live in an island and can only bring two beauty items, then the first one would be Dior Nude Natural Glow Foundation, 022 Cameo. It is light, sheer, with enough coverage I need. I usually stock some at home when it is on sale at Sephora. NARS orgasm blush is definitely the second item I would take with me. It offers a subtle pink shade and a healthy glow. For eye makeup, Bobbi Brown eye gel makes a great contribution. Since it is in a gel format, it won’t fall off into eyes easily. For people who are allergy to eye makeup products, you may try it.
Like many other working moms, I am asked to finish makeup and dress up in a flash in the morning. Simplicity is a must and a habit. My final fix up before leaving the house is, don’t forget to wear SMILE, the more the better.
