“I WOKE UP LIKE THIS” with LA VIDA™ Deluxe Creative Brows Embroidery Service: Review

Your brows are the most prominent features of your face apart from your eyes. We already know that a good pair of brows can frame the face but having the right brow shape also opens the eye area and helps to create a more youthful look.

Achieving that #browsonfleek look can be quite a daunting task, especially if you are rushing for time in the morning before school/work. What better way to save your time and effort to get those perfect brows on 24/7 than with semi-permanent makeup? Semi-permanent makeup procedures have taken over the beauty industry by storm recently, and it’s almost as if every girl I see has jumped on the brow-wagon! Well, to no surprise, I HAVE TOO with the LA VIDA™ Deluxe Creative Brows Embroidery Service. I can finally spend more time with my pillows and bed in the mornings!

Microblading, also known as eyebrow embroidery, is a new and popular technique that gives you semi-permanent, natural-looking brows. It’s a procedure that utilises a micro-blade (essentially a very small blade) to create tiny incisions with loaded coloured pigments that mimic eyebrow hairs. This means that once you have gone through microblading, you will also experience the convenience and beauty of having your #makeuponpoint. Looking perfectly polished before you head out can never be as easy as this, and well, you can finally boast and say, “I woke up like this!”

Seoul searching in fabulous Seoul, South Korea: Beauty, Food & Fashion

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!~

I just came back from Seoul, Korea, recently and I’m still wishing I was back in the cold, with occasional snow while walking down the shopping streets of Garosu-gil, Hongdae and Myeongdong.

It’s 25 years into my life and it was my virgin visit to the popular travel destination, South Korea, to attend a K-Beauty conference – Made in Korea (MIK) 2017 – courtesy of MyFatPocket. It was my first time travelling with MFP’s Editor, Xinyi (@xinyicyndisoh) too. This short trip was a rather fruitful one as I got acquainted with many K-Beauty brands that are looking to expand to our tiny little red dot, ate many local dishes and bought even more makeup!
