Let's Talk Beauty: All About Eyes

Hi ladies! Am back with another 'Let's Talk Beauty' entry, and was hoping to share some thoughts on eye health this time. :) For those who've been following my beauty posts, you'd have figured that my eyes are my least favourite feature. They're small, beady, and I also have uneven single eyelids- probably not what most would term as beautiful. 

However, having the privilege to be ACUVUE® DefineTM brand advocate for the last 18months has given me an opportunity to change this perspective. I've began to realise that with the use of good products and with proper care, our eyes can be our most beautiful asset! With the proliferation of false lashes, double eyelid tapes, and not forgetting beauty enhancement contact lenses, I've been able to work around my 'flaws' to beautify my eyes in a more natural & healthy way.

I am a huge fan of beauty enhancement contact lenses as they really help to brighten and enlarge my eyes. I am wearing 1 • Day ACUVUE® DEFINE™ Vivid Style variant in the picture above; I really love how it makes my eyes more lively while still looking very natural on me! I’ve also recently found out that ACUVUE® DefineTM is specially designed to accentuate Asian eyes, like mine!   

Because I've had bad experiences with other brands of beauty enhancement contact lenses, I've chosen to wear only 1 • Day ACUVUE® DEFINE™ for the last 2 years, and have never once thought of switching brands. As a daily disposable lens, 1 • Day ACUVUE® DEFINE™ is also hygienic, convenient and helps me maintain optimum eye health as I put on a fresh pair of lenses every day.

Being at regular photoshoots has also made me take extra care in choosing the brand of lenses I wear. Photoshoots can sometimes drag for long hours, and some shots require a constant wind blowing into my face (and eyes), so the type of contact lenses I choose to wear is really important to me! 1 • Day ACUVUE® DEFINE™  has definitely helped to keep my eyes moist during the to last my entire shoot duration, and I never have to worry about my eyes feeling dry and tired or turning red halfway during these shoots.

Some of you would also know I love to travel during the winter season, and I realise how big a part maintaining healthy eyes is when I travel, especially in extremely dry and cold climates. I don't like to risk having dry or sore eyes when I'm overseas, so I always make sure I pack along ample supply of 1 • Day ACUVUE® DEFINE™. While the way I look is important, how my eyes feel through the day is even more important! 

It comes with Triple Care, which provides high levels of moisture, oxygen and UV protection for healthy and comfortable eyes. Its unique Beauty-Wrapped-In-Comfort™ technology also seals the lens’ colorants between two thin, transparent layers of lens material, thus protecting my eyes from direct contact with the colour pigments. Also, 1 • Day ACUVUE® DEFINE™ brand of beauty enhancement contact lenses offer internationally recognized levels of ultraviolet (UV) protection. This means your cornea is protected from UV rays and coupled with your sunglasses; your eyes are better protected because UV rays can still seep in from the sides of your shades!

As Shakespeare would say, "The eyes are the window to your soul." I would urge you ladies to start taking good care of your eyes and work towards transforming them into your most beautiful asset, and you will definitely not regret it! ;) I believe that healthy eyes are beautiful eyes!

Till the next beauty entry, keep those eyes moist and healthy! Xx

The Audi Red Carpet Night

Hello fashion friends! The Audi Fashion Festival (AFF) 2014 has come to an end, and I thought I should share a little about what happened the past week. I was privileged to be invited as one of the festival's 'Insiders', and had a ton of fun at all the AFF events. Every year, AFF kicks off with a private gala dinner and Fred and I were very honoured to be invited by Audi Singapore to attend this year's Audi Red Carpet Night! It was a musical night of fashion, and here's a pictorial update for you all ;)

Us at the photowall!

Our menu that evening. We indulged in fine food and wine; it was definitely a treat!

The night started beautifully with The 7 Sopranos delivering an amazing performance. They actually surprised the crowd by starting the performance from their seats! 

The crowd was then treated to the key looks from the Audi Star Creation winners. In case you didn't know, Star Creation is a fashion design competition organised by the Textile & Fashion Federation (Singapore) also known as TaFf. An event of the Asia Fashion Exchange (AFX), Star Creation aims to uncover Asian talents, present them with the opportunity to launch their fashion careers and groom them into tomorrow’s top fashion designers.

Out of three, one was presented with the Audi Young Designer Award 2014. A huge congratulations to Rebecca Corine Lam from Hong Kong, her 'ZHI' collection was breathtaking! Can totally see myself purchasing her designs already!

Grabbed a quick picture with the 'Star' of the night. Never know one day this photo might become priceless teehee ;)

And the other stellar performance and highlight of the evening was of course the debut couture designer, Rubin Singer's collection! In Singapore for the first time, he presented highlights from his S/S 2014, F/W 2014 and Bridal collections, winning us guests over with his red carpet-worthy gowns. He's created pieces for BeyoncĂ©, Alicia Keys, Heidi Klum, so you can just imagine the amazing designs he had in store!

Got a quick sneak peek backstage and got to see the pieces up close and personal! Also saw the designer himself in action. What an insight!

Sneaked a quick selfie with the charming and talented Rubin Singer too! ;D

Here's a sneak preview (got them off HerWorldPlus), you can view the whole collection there ;) The liquid metal dress was absolutely breathtaking! Saw and touched it backstage, and WOW.


The Audi Red Carpet Night also unveiled one of Audi's own visionary creations - the exciting new Audi A8!

Amongst the guests were Prabal Gurung, Daniel Boey and Ashey Isham! *starstrucked*

And here's one with the festival's director, Tjin. 

More photos from AFF soon, till the next. Xx
