Perfect Natural Looking Skin with UNT BB/ CC Cream

Anti-aging Skincare Routine


      It is harder to eliminate wrinkles than to prevent fine lines. The best way to stay young is to start an anti-aging beauty regime before you really need it.

Summer Lip Balm Recommendation

Summer Lip Balm
      Summer is officially here, the days are getting hotter and hotter in Taiwan. My favorite thing to do, right now, is to find a coffee shop and steal the air conditioning for the afternoon. It's very important to get hydrated in the Summer. If we are not drinking enough water, our lips can be too dry. And, if we stay in an air conditioning room for too long, our lips can also become dry. In this post, I'm introducing some light weight but hydrating lip balm for the hot weather.

Beauty Ingredient: Deodorant

Beauty Ingredient Deodorant
      It is a little awkward to talk about body order and armpits. But, I think everybody can relate to this topic since its summer. Perfume can only add good smell but it cannot cancel bad smell. What we really need is a deodorant.  It is very important to use a deodorant when you go out, especially during summer when you will definitely sweat. We don't want to smell bad, and it could be very impolite to others as well. In this post, I am going to tell you what ingredient deodorant uses and how to choose a good one.

Watercolor Nails

      I just did this beautiful nails inspired by the nail look I saw from Michelle Phan's video. It is very beautiful and easy. I don't usually post about my nails, but I am very happy with this design. I would like to share with you how this is done. 

      This nail design is quite simple. There is no detail drawings involved, as you can see it is a little messy. 
  1. Apply base coat.
  2. Apply a coat of white nail polish. This color acts like a white canvas for the painting. 
  3. After the white color is dried. Randomly dot on other colors.
  4. Before the dots are dried, smudge them a bit with a Q-tip.
  5. Lastly, apply two layers to top coat to make it look brighter.

      The look is really artistic and colorful. It looks a bit like floral design from afar. And, you can play with different color combination to create a complete different look. It's really fun for a summer day, it adds a playfulness to your style. I seldom wear colorful nails like this, but I think I'm in love with this look. 

Would you try this watercolor nails?
