… is the one that they do on your face, you know one of ‘em ‘plump-up’ facials?

Because while my pregnancy has the unfortunate side effect of face-fattening, the postpartum period also introduces another… wrinkles.

And it seems to me they are coming on fast and furious and have no intention of leaving my face, like the residual pregnancy weight! How hard it is for those last 4 kilos to just disappear!

Anyway, as soon as I managed to get a babysitter for Keri, I booked myself an appointment at Spa Esprit at my choice location, Dempsey: because post-facial is often a terrifyingly hideous affair, it’s best that I can just duck into the car immediately after treatment so my uber red face (my skin is slightly on the sensitive skin, so any knick will leave very obvious marks and redness)  will not see the light of day and scare the wits out of passersby.

Besides with a nerve and eye-soothing view like this, it’s a no-brainer for me.

At the risk of getting lashed (no pun intended) out on left right and centre, let me tell you my struggle with eye creams: I didn’t believe that they work.

I used to write on health and beauty topics for a couple of local magazines back in the day and was inundated everyday by beauty products — from mascaras and hair serums to foundation and of course, eye creams. I enjoyed working on the makeup stories because I could see immediately whether that shade of concealer would melt like second skin or if the mascara really made my eyes pop. But when the stash of eye creams started bursting out of the office drawers it was hard to ignore them anymore.

guestcontributor1Today, I would like to introduce Adlena, our new contributor on MsGlitzy.com. Some of you may be familiar with her – after all, she had shown us her makeup pouch 2 Christmases ago.

Adlena recently became a Mum and she will be sharing with us some Mummy beauty and fashion tips on the blog. I’m very excited to read her posts! I hope you’ll enjoy them too.

Five months after I had my baby, Keri, I must say I’m missing my glowing pregnancy skin.

In my early stages of pregnancy I was warned of the perils of being pregnant; be prepared for crazy breakouts on your chest and neck like I had, recalled one fellow mummy friend. I had freckles popping up all over my face!, said the other.

Much to their chagrin, I was one of the few lucky ones: for the whole 40 weeks, my skin had never been better. My “kuali”(read: oily wok) face was non existent and I could get by entire days just with translucent powder, blusher and eyeliner. Yep, no concealer, no foundation whatsoever.Thank you Keri for making mummy pretty, I would say quietly to myself as I rubbed my belly.

Now that she’s out, I’m not saying my skin took to a sudden worse, but it’s just not as radiant and oil-free as before. No thanks to late night feedings and just general ennui and fatigue of having to manage a small business while juggling the needs of an infant and doing household chores on a daily basis.

So what can I do to hide at least some of those imperfections just so my clients and co-workers won’t think that I’m going to crumble in front of them from exhaustion just by looking at my face?

I have six skincare saving graces:

larryeo1aIn this final guest post for the “What’s in My Beauty Pouch” series, I am delighted to invite popular makeup artist, Larry Yeo, to reveal his daily favourites!

Recently crowned by Elle Singapore as the “Makeup Artist of the Year”, Larry’s works are often seen on top glossies in Singapore. He has been involved in several fashion shows, and has worked with several beauty brands for their makeup demonstrations and presentations.

Many of you might also remember him as the makeup artist who appears with Youtube Makeup Tutorial Sensation cum Extraordinaire Golden Tan in a series of Youtube videos by Maybelline.

Larry revealed he usually carries a massive makeup bag or trolley with various cosmetics and shades when he is out on the job. That sounds like a treasure trove to a makeup addict, I am pretty sure. But for the purpose of this series, he shall show us what goes into his personal vanity pouch and trust me, it’s not all about makeup!

The amazing thing about Singapore is how often I can actually get out of Singapore. My destination for the end of the month? Bali! What can be better than spending time with friends, seeing some sights and relaxing by the beach and our little private villa only 2 hours away?

As the high season arrives and your beach-bound travel plans start to take shape, remember that it’s never worth it for your outfits to cost more than your plane ticket.

Here are 3 Bali worthy outfits all under $150 USD thanks to budget-conscious stores Forever 21 (with plenty of retail outlets island-wide) and online favorite, ASOS.com. Complete with a Bali book to catch up on for the flight!

Every girl has a couple visions in life.

One is the perfect store with all their favorite designers. Mine is Shopbop.com. No other place in the world (literally) can I find every contemporary designer I know and love. And they ship internationally, yay!

Second is the dress they will walk down the aisle in. Mine happens to be sleek, simple, etherial and different… just anything other than the typical-princess-dress. Think… Carolyn Bessette weds JFK Jr. Hey, a girl can dream.

Joining the likes of BHLDN, Shopbop has just launched their bridal site and they have officially made both my visions come true!

Last week, New York Fashion Week proved that fashion doesn’t have to always be one era in time. This fall season, channel your inner vintage self by taking inspirations from yesteryear. Whether you’re feeling the 70′s, 20′s or even the 90′s, you can make it work no matter what the day or decade.
