The 2008 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show took place at the Fontainebleau in Miami beach over the weekend. The theme for this year is Return To Glamour and the show featured a total of 68 outfits which included glittery bras, panties, coats and dresses with a $5 million, 1500-carat bra worn by my favorite VS model Adriana Lima. The show will air on CBS on December 3rd at 10PM ET/PT but below is a sneak peak of the models’ look for you ladies.

Here is a simple EOTD of me wearing my new Geo Tri-Color lenses – god I heart these babies!

Wearing NARS Wicked and MAC Hepcat eyeshadows


What I Used
* Geo Tri-Color Lenses in Gray
* Jane Magical Mushroom Eyeshadow to fill in eyebrows
* Lumene Eye Makeup Base as a primer
* NARS Wicked Duo Eyeshadow on entire eyelid
* MAC Hepcat Eyeshadow on lower eye
* Benefit Bad Gal Liquid Liner along upper lash line
* Fantasy Makers Witches’ Charm Eyelashes in Sorceress on top
* L’oreal Bare Naturale Mascara in Black on lower lashes

Moisturizing is one of the most important steps in the Asian skincare regimen. Asian women believe that a “watery”, radiant complexion makes a crucial base for good makeup and their secret to achieving that? Applying lotion religiously.

Unlike the regular moisturizers that we call lotion here in the US, “lotion” (化妝水) is a hydrating toner that should be applied after cleansing and before moisturizer. While some people argue that toners are redundant and just another marketing gimmick, I personally can’t live without them. My rationale? If your skin is dehydrated and you slap on layers and layers of moisturizers, they will just sit on top of your skin and not get absorbed. But if you use a hydrating toner to soften the top layer of your skin first, it will help any moisturizer or treatment that follows to penetrate better into your skin.
