During my recent trip back home, I finally got to stop by the Barbie Beauty counter to check out the Barbie All Doll’d Up makeup line and Plastic Smooth skincare line available exclusively in Hong Kong and Shanghai.
Besides being a bridesmaid for my best friend Vanessa (miss you girl!), one of the biggest highlights of my 2-week trip to Hong Kong was discovering ink, a line of premium makeup brushes created by renowned Hong Kong makeup artist, Zing.

When it comes to doing my makeup in the morning, I always try to keep it quick and easy so I can catch an extra 15 minutes of sleep – which is why I love Kanebo Sensai Triple Touch Compact, a luxe compact that comes with two concealers and a pressed powder so you can look polished in no time.
If you like that sweet babydoll cheeks spotted in Japanese magazines, try duping it with Lioele Blooming Cushion Touch Blusher in Cutie Peach.

Proper cleansing is the first step to clear skin, which is why I have been practising the Asian Double Cleansing routine for over 10 years now. The routine involves using two complimentary products, normally a cleansing oil to dissolve makeup and sebum followed by a creamy/foamy soap to remove residue and gently exfoliate. I have tried all kinds of products out there and my newly discovered Kanebo Sensai Silky Purifying Cleansing Oil and Silky Purifying Creamy Soap, are handsdown the best!
