What’s in My Gym Beauty Bag

So started about a year ago, I go to gym quite frequently, like 5 times a week. It became very clear to me quite fast that I need a fully functional beauty bag in my gym bag. When I say functional, I mean I need makeup remover, facial cleanser, toner, eye cream, moisturizer, sunscreen (if I go to gym at day time), perfume, lip balm and perhaps a blush, and a lipgloss if I go somewhere after gym. Is this considered high maintenance? Hopefully I’m…

My Favorite Online Beauty Shopping Destinations

Living in Singapore means it’s often a pain to get my hands on the beauty products (especially the ones have been raved and raved on YouTube, how great is that!) that I’m dying to try, the kind of pain that girls in the U.S. will never understand.
