Got my nails done at JC Beauty recently and here they are!
The roses and all the other nail art designs were hand-painted by Joyce herself. I had no specific design I had in mind so I let Joyce just do up something for me. She does mostly classy designs as evident in the ones she did for me.
Leekaja Hair Salon was established by Madame Leekaja back in 1972 in South Korea and was the first franchised hair dressing brand. Since then, LKJ Hair Salon has been the most stylish and prestigious hair salon brand in Korea and have branched out overseas with 130 shops in Korea, 15 in USA, 33 in China and most recently launched the first LKJ hair salon in Australia.
Located conveniently in the heart of Orchard at Mandarin Gallery, #03-13, one would not be able to miss Leekaja because of its posh and eye-catching decor. A one-stop beauty salon specialising in Korean trends, you can find hair, nail, eyelash, semi-permanent makeup such as eyebrow embroidery and eyeliner embroidery and even barber services.
Did you know that the eyebrows are the most important feature in defining your face? Well, I thought it would be the eyes or the lips. But believe it or not, science says that it is our eyebrows in this study conducted by researchers at The University of Lethbridge in Canada. The researchers showed participants 25 images of celebrities without eyebrows, followed by 25 images of celebrities without eyes. And here’s the interesting findings, the participants were able to correctly identify 56 percent of the celebrities shown without eyes, but only 46 percent of the celebrities without eyebrows.
We may not have won the gene lottery when it comes to having gorgeous brows like Cara Delevingne but there’s always 6HD eyebrow embroidery to save the day.
So this week marked the 2 months since I’ve started working, it feels like it has been so much longer than just mere 2 months only. I’m still trying my best to adjust back to the working lifestyle. Some days I’m not so loving it and feel robbed of my time, gone are the days where I could eat in bed or settle for a nap between 2 to 3pm. And yet as the weeks progressed, I feel like I have my “adulthood” back. I get to do adult things such as catch up friends over lunch. This was a rarity during my days as a Stay Home mother. I might even graduate to chilling out one fine day.
Allure Beauty is a one stop beauty place that caters to all your beauty needs from facials to eyebrow grooming. You can check out my previous facial experience with Allure using Atache products HERE. So as we all know, eyebrows frame the face and messy, untidy or spare eyebrows do not flatter at all. However, this will no longer be an issue once you’ve tried eyebrow embroidery. And with the Allure Signature Eyebrow Embroidery, you may now throw away your eyebrow pencils.
The Allure Signature Eyebrow Embroidery was designed by Ms Angela Tnee; the founder of Allure Beauty. This is a semi-permanent process where color is added onto your natural brow with precise strokes to mimic your actual brow hairs. It is customized according to your features and facial structure. No 2 customers at Allure would have the same eyebrows because everyone is different.
I was real excited about this session as I really suck at shaping my brows and I hardly have time to go to the professionals for grooming. My eyebrows are more towards the thick side but then they’re kinda uneven.
Old photo with eyebrows that has been filled in with eyebrow pencil:
So my eyebrows were not making much of a bold statement as you can see from the above photo And interestingly, thick eyebrows are the focus this season with most runway shows having models in nude makeup and strong brows. So it was interesting to try out the Allure Signature Eyebrow at Allure Beauty, Clementi Branch.
