My Favourite Japan Beauty Product [Saborino Morning Mask]

6 Mar


Good morning!

This morning I am sharing about a unique product I have found:



What is Saborino morning mask?

It is a product specially designed to be used in the morning. This product has 3 major functions:




Provide a perfect base for makeup

Sounds too good? Hehe… initially I really doubt anyone will use facial mask in the morning, SERIOUSLY, WHO GOT TIME? However, when I started using it for a week, I realized that it actually saves me some time!



  1. Open up the flip cap and take out one sheet.
  2. Stretch the mask gently to fit to the face. If I didn’t stretch a bit, the holes for the eyes are a little bit too close to each other. So with a little stretching, it can fit the face perfectly.
  3. Smooth it out.
  4. Then I will start getting dress and style my hair, which takes about 10 minutes.
  5. Time to remove the mask.
  6. Gently wipe it around the face and neck to “cleanse” it.
  7. Start applying make up.

By doing like this, I have cut down the time for cleansing and skipped my skin care routine 🙂


The key ingredients in the mask includes, apple fruit acid, peppermint extract, cucumber extract, tea tree leaf oil, grapefruit leaf oil, collagen, orange oil, avocado extract and honey. Therefore it is really minty, cooling and refreshing when I use it first thing in the morning.


Things I like about it?

  1. It certainly does SAVE time.
  2. It “plumps” up the skin and tightening.
  3. The makeup stays better throughout the day.


I really enjoy this innovative product and hope you will find it useful too.

STROBING With Your Phone

6 Jul

Hi Everyone!

How’s your Monday? Today I would like to share about what’s seems to be very “IN” lately – Strobing.

If you don’t know what’s it, you can go google it and there are tons of step by step video teaching you how to do it. I would describe it as a simple technique that involves quick and easy steps to give final touch to your makeup. *Great stuff*

So today, I am going to show you how to do it with your phone! Hehe~

Step 1 Download MeituPic

One of the best photo editing apps that I am using.

Step 2 Use the “Dark Circle” Function

Here I am using an old picture as example.

Step 3 Choose manual and adjust the size of the brush.


Step 4 Highlight

– Above your eyebrows
– Nose
– Apple of your cheeks
– Above your lips
– Chin

I normally don’t use this function for dark circles (unless it’s really really bad), cos’ it tends to make your face looks ‘flat’ and ‘fake’.



Can’t tell the difference? Hehe… Cos’ it’s supposed to be very subtle and almost not noticeable.

However, if you put 2 pictures together, you can see how this technique improve the overall face feature.


Okay… Babies are calling~ I need to go sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star…

Thank you so much for reading and have fun Strobing!


10 Things I Want My Daughter To Know

8 Sep


I always wonder, will it be a day, when Isabelle will switch on the computer and read what I have written in this blog. (Will my blog still exist when she can read?) If there will be such day, I really hope that she will read this, about what I have planned to let her know. I am going to tag Isabelle so that when she types her name in the search bar, she’ll be seeing this 🙂

1. Kind is beautiful.
How beautiful you are depends on how kind hearted you are. It’s about the way you treat others, feel compassion, the encouraging words you say. It’s never about sharp nose, big eyes, fair skin and long legs.

2. Keep Fighting
A fighting spirit is an enduring drive that will get you through the hard times despite all the setbacks. Health, happiness and success depend upon the fighting spirit of each person. The big thing is not what happens to us in life, but what we do about what happens to us.


3. Never Boast
I know how much you want to project yourself positively. But keep in mind that everything that you have, even yourself, belongs to God. Bragging will only make you look insecure.

4. Respect Your Father
Believe me, no man on earth loves you like your father does. Cherish the moment you spend with him and try not to make him angry. He is a good man, so make sure he gets all the respect he deserves.

5. Magic Is Real
You have to believe in all the wonderful and amazing things in life. There are too much negativities in the world, do not be defeated by them. Be hopeful and believe in miracles.


6. Work Hard
Nothing good and enjoyable comes easy. No matter how many opportunists you met in your life, you have to remember the golden rule: THERE’S NO SHORTCUT TO SUCCESS. Be productive and fruitful. Do something that will refresh others and be of lasting significance. Be filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes from God.

7. Dream
Man with no dream is like bird without wings. Do not dream at night, dream all day, dream for a living… And remember this, no dream comes true until you act and turn them into realities.


8. Make Your Choice
In the world’s system, all things are being measured in the world’s standard. As a result, we get caught up in a system, which eventually causes us to fall down and hurt ourselves. When you start thinking and acting like the world, you begin trying to accumulate all the things the world accumulates. Then you start measuring whether you are a success by the world’s standards instead of God’s standard. God’s standard is never based on success in this world, whether you are pretty, have three cars, live in a castle,  have a university degree, or see your name printed often in the Forbes magazine. With God, none of these things equals success.

When you get wrapped up in the world’s system and the world’s covetousness, then instead of acting upon God’s promises to you, you begin to think the world’s way. What happens when you do that? You start putting pressure on yourself to obtain the things of this world. And in the end, you get nothing, but emptiness.

So make sure you walk the right path and make the right choice.


9. Be Thankful
Baby, you are not going to believe how lucky and blessed we both are. So, be grateful to all that in your life. Even though there’ll be rains and pain, but God said He will never forsake you. Good news is, the more thankful you are, you are gonna harvest this power within you to do and get something greater.

10. Love is the principal
Love is the key to open up every door in life. So you should do everything out of love. Love your family, love your friends, love people around you, love the animals, love the planet. When you put love in everything you do, you will live a good and happy life.


These are the sort of things mummy wants to tell you. I hope it will empower and inspire you to be a kind lovely lady who will touch many hearts and bear fruits of righteousness. Mummy loves you!! XOXO

Thank you so much for reading. I hope it inspires you a little too.

XOXO Eryn ❤


10 Things I’ve Learned From My Dog

Isabelle’s First Photoshoot Experience [D’ Enfant Galerie]

Baby Beauty Survival Guide [Lancôme Complete Make-Up Palette]

15 Aug

I finally know why are quick and easy make up so important. Cos’ once you have a baby, you won’t even have time to shower, not to mention putting on makeup!!

foto_no_exif (3)

And here’s when a all-in-one make up kit comes in handy. This Lancôme make up set was a gift from my dad when he did his duty free shopping in Narita airport while he visited Tokyo in June. It’s always sweet to receive gift from dad, no matter how old you are 🙂

foto_no_exif (4)

Today is Isabelle’s full moon party, and I’m going to do my makeup using this Absolu Voyage makeup pallet.  And nothing else!

foto_no_exif (5)


foto_no_exif (6)

First of all, clean your face with biore makeup remover to remove oil and dirt on your face. Make sure that your face is clean before applying your moisturizer.

foto_no_exif (7)

This will prepare your face for the makeup 🙂


foto_no_exif (8)

I always like to use concealer before the foundation.

foto_no_exif (9)

Dab some under your eyes to cover the dark eye circles and some around the nose to cover redness and some on your chin to brighten up dark spot. Blend it well with your fingers. Do it in a dabbing motion, that way it would blend in better.

Powder Foundation

foto_no_exif (10)

This make up kit comes with a foundation powder with a cute little sponge!

foto_no_exif (11)

Start with your nose and under eyes and apply the foundation on your face evenly.

Eye Brow

Well defined eye brows are vital. Even when you decided not to wear any makeup that day, make sure you never forget about your eyebrows!

foto_no_exif (12)

I am using the eye liner pencil to fill in my brows.

foto_no_exif (13)

Start with the arch of your brow and fill in according the shape of your brows.

foto_no_exif (14)

(You don’t always have to use your makeup product according to the label. You can always try using your mascara as eyeliner or lip colour as blusher!)

Eye Shadow
Look, the make up kit comes with a petit brush labelled “eye”.

foto_no_exif (15)

Here I use the pearly white colour as highlighter to highlight the brow bone and nose for more definition.

foto_no_exif (16)

foto_no_exif (17)

Then I use a glitter metallic bronze colour as eye shadow colour.

foto_no_exif (18)

foto_no_exif (19)

Next I use the pink shiny colour to highlight the inner corner of my eyes.

foto_no_exif (20)

It makes eyes appear bigger.

foto_no_exif (21)

Eye Liner

foto_no_exif (22)

I use the same crayon pencil to draw my eye line. I love to make a pointy end in order to draw mini cat eyes. It makes my eyes appear longer and thus my face smaller.

foto_no_exif (23)

Here I also line the lower eye line till the center of my eye to give it a rounder look.


foto_no_exif (24)

Using the eye shadow brush, I use the dark burgundy shadow to contour my nose.

foto_no_exif (25)

Draw them according to the wing of your nose and blend it well with your fingers. It will further define your nose and make it appear pointier.


foto_no_exif (26)

Smile and brush them on the apple of your cheeks!

foto_no_exif (27)

Lip Liner

foto_no_exif (28)

Having a lip line on not only define your lips, it also make your lip colour stays longer.

foto_no_exif (29)

Lip colour
This makeup palette also comes with a small lip brush.

foto_no_exif (30)

Using a lip brush to apply your lip colour will fill the colour more evenly on your lips, covering all the crease and thus make it appear smooth and longer lasting.

foto_no_exif (31)

There are 2 shades of lip colour available in the make up kit. I chose the light pink on the left.

foto_no_exif (32)

And then the lip gloss on the right.

foto_no_exif (33)

I apply the lipgloss in the middle of my upper lip and lower lip so that my lips look fuller.

foto_no_exif (34)

It really surprise me when I see this small tube of mascara in this all in one kit.

foto_no_exif (35)

Swipe it in an upward motion on each eyes lashes for about 20 times.

foto_no_exif (36)


foto_no_exif (37)

My beauty survival makeup using only a makeup kit! It’s so small and handy. I can replace my whole make up case with just one little case!

Tonight we are having a little party at home, so I better make sure that my hair are all in place 🙂

First, make small braids at both side of the ears. Pull them from both sides so that it becomes flat and wide.

foto_no_exif (38)

Tie them together at the back and pin a ribbon on to cover the ends.

foto_no_exif (39)

Take out the curler and start curling hairs inwards to create an elegant look.

foto_no_exif (40)

Sorry for the blur images, as I’ve said earlier, now I have very limited time to to my makeup and taking pictures at the same time can be really challenging for me *sweat*

Well, here’s the finished look!

foto_no_exif (41)

Okay, next thing is to dress up baby Isabelle:) Which one do you like?

foto_no_exif (42)

She looks like a doll isn’t she??

foto_no_exif (43)

Well now, if you pardon me, I have a party to host!!

Thank you so much for reading. Have a great Thursday everyone!

Celebrating Womanhood

10 Aug


I am so excited to finally get to share some very exciting news with you all!!!

What a tease right!?

For the past few weeks I’ve been working on my first series of fashion posts Magnificence surrounding a theme of celebrating womanhood!!!! (There aren’t enough exclamation points to wave my excitement!) While the project is still very much in progress, I have received unedited copies of pictures and I must say I can’t wait to share with you all~

I had the idea for this project when I was still in my pregnancy period back in June, but in the excitement of the planning, I never actually figured out what I was going to do. That didn’t come to me until after I had given birth to Isabelle and all of a sudden everything seemed to line up and running 🙂

I will definitely be sharing updates with you as soon as I can but wanted to give this small sneak peak of something really big that’s been happening in my life.

Thank you so much for reading. Have a great weekend everyone!

XOXO Eryn ❤
