I remember reading about Japan’s leading beauty expert, Chizu Saeki launching her book The Japanese Skincare Revolution, which includes a collection of unconventional skincare tips such as wearing a shower cap over your face and thinking about sexy men. I had made a mental note to check out her book when I have time but till now, I haven’t got down to that.
Okay, I’m back with Viva Challenge again and this time, I’ll like to introduce to you the idea of doing your own facial massage once a week. I’ve actually been wanting to write about DIY facial massage that I’ve been doing sometimes but found it difficult to write out the instructions. So I was happy to find this video on anti-aging facial massage which I chanced upon on Skindeco.
One of the tricks I picked up from the hairstylist who did my hair during my wedding is that I can use a crimper to give my straight and fine hair a different texture and more volume. It’s actually very easy and I can achieve the effect very quickly within 10 minutes. The only tool I really need is the crimper but I can use some hairspray if I want a more lasting effect.
First, I need to heat up the crimper for about five minutes. After which, I start with the insides of my hair, take sections of it and put the crimper on for around one minute on each section. The longer I leave the crimper on, the harder the look of the crimps, which may not be natural looking. It’s also important that I do not redo the sections I’ve already crimped otherwise my hair would look too brittle.

Makeup for me is not so much to look prettier, but rather, to look younger. Hence, part of the process involves concealing. To tell you the truth, I didn’t pay much attention to concealing my under-eye dark circles until recent years. But as soon as I did, I realized the amazing effect it had. It helped me to look more awake and much fresher! At least I no longer have the problem of people remarking that I constantly look tired.
I’m hopeless with eyeliner application. Lucky thing I have quite a big pair of eyes so I can do without it most of the time. But I could certainly do with a proper lesson and the basic eyeliner tutorial with pencil, cream/gel or liquid made recently by blogger Michelle Phan is just excellent.
The girl emphasizes the importance of using smaller strokes for a better line quality whatever the type of eyeliner used. This allows better control in terms of the thickness of the application and minimizes possibilities of making mistakes.
