Do You Need To Make Up for Workout at the Gym?

If I was asked this question 10 years ago, my answer would just be a “NO.”

Then we grow up, we take care more of how we look everyday, every moment, even when we are at the supermarket.

One day you’re thinking, maybe you want to wear some make up to the gym. Why not? You will feel good about yourself, and who knows you will meet your prince charming on the way to the gym, or at the gym.

But since we gonna sweat, here are some do’s and don’ts for the make up during your workout session.

1. Sun screen

Sun screen is a “must” in the gym, especially nowadays some gyms have all the French windows. If you don’t want your skin to age too fast, the sun screen would be a basic to have.

Don’t forget to choose the water resistant type.

2. Tinted Moisturizer

I suggest not to use any foundation for your workout.

The tinted moisturizer is a better choice with its lighter texture. Your skin will look brighter, and not too obvious to tell you are using any product on your face.

Nars

3. Lipsticks

Instead of a creamy and striking color lipstick, you can choose the sheer lipstick for work out.

This would help your lips looks healthier  without the sticky feeling.

4. Liquid eyeliner

Eyeliner is not a must. You can choose weather it is necessary to use it.

If you are planning to use, remember when in the gym the liquid eyeliner is better than those smoky eyeliner pen.

Stila-Stay-All-Day-Waterproof-Liquid-Eyeliner

 

Since you don’t want people to notice that you are using eyeliner, do not draw any dramatic shape.

The inner eyeliner gives you a natural and softer look.

Start out with a very thin line in the inner corners, and then build the thickness out once you reach the outer third of your eye.

全智贤

Other cosmetic to avoid when you are going to work out:

1.Blushes

During work out, your cheeks will be blushing naturally, you would’t want to have the double effect.

MAC

2. Fake eyelashes

Unless you are going to the gym for taking selfies, please say bye bye to the fake eyelashes.

This is not applicable for a natural and health look. BE2087-9-False-Lashes-Diva

Wish all of us have healthy body and mind, and of course look better everyday!

KENZO X H&M Coming this November 2016

Everyone has H&M in their wardrobe, from those basic styles to the designer collaboration.

This November, we are expecting H&M’s new collaboration with Kenzo.

Kenzo HM

Can you feel the wildness?

Another line I really like is the H&M Conscious Exclusive Collection.

This line has totally changed my concept about H&M. It definitely brings H&M to the new level, not the “fast fashion” anymore.

It is said the H&M design team found inspiration at the recently launched ‘Fashion Forward – 300 Years of Fashion’ exhibit held at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs.

Are you wondering what’s hot for the season? As usual, I like sharing with you.

I believe with these items, you will be the IT girl among the crowd.

1. Pom Pom Style

Pom Pom flat sandals are the best to fit your holiday mood.

2. Anklets

The last time the anklets were popular when I was still a teenager. Yeah it’s back!

If you want a very feminine look, it’s the best choice.

Ashley Olsen wears her anklets everywhere.

Personally I would prefer this kind of golden simple design.

The anklets from Chole with little pendant is quite nice as well.

Or maybe these from Valentino.

3. Vetements Jeans

You don’t want to wear any jeans except Vetements Jeans for this season.

Vetements reworked vintage jeans are nearly sold out on Net-a-Porter.

You can find the similar style from other brands, like Zara, always.

And I don’t think it would be difficult to create your own “Vetements Jeans.” Find one pair of jeans that you are tired with or those ones you don’t want to wear any more…

Gucci set the new rainbow rule.

This Multicolor Rainbow-Stripe Tweed Jacket from Sonia Rykiel is good for the office.

I heard university students love to wear Valentino rockstud heels for graduation ceremony, they say the studs are shining especially with the dark color bachelor gown. What a great idea!

3 Simple Tips For Your Everyday Lingeries

Do you always have the question “is this the right bra for my outfit today?” If so, take sometime to read this.

1. Nude Color Lingeries

victorias-secret-nude-wireless-bra-product-1-13925603-987125271
Nude color is magical.

When you have the nude color dresses as below, you should wear nude color lingeries.

elie-saab-lace-wedding-reception-dress-beading

blake lively

kate

I believe we all have more than one pair of the nude color bra. They are so great with any color.

Only one thing we need to pay attention is: never show the strips.

And who said nude color lingeries are boring? Try the lace type. It is sexy and safe.

2. Black Color Lingeries

victorias-secret-black-lace-unlined-demi-bra-product-1-14490231-362281895

The black color is another magical type in our mind.

Earlier we talked about not to show nude color bra strips, so which color can we show then? Definitely the black one.

Lily Colins is showing us in a right way. When you are wearing off-shoulder tops or see through type of clothes, a black bra could be the best choice.

Cara Delevingne

The black lingeries are also the best friend with the deep V.

Nicole Richie’s black bra is not bad, would it be better if change this to the lace type?

Unless you are as brave as Beyonce, otherwise I still suggest the black color for us.

Black lingeries also make a good combination with singlets.

3. Other Color Lingeries

Sexy-Lingerie#

For other beautiful color lingeries, I would suggest to wear them in a monochorome way to match with your outfits.

Or wear them with clothes which are not the see through type.
