This year has been a year of opportunities for me, I’m really blessed to be able to work for something I love, meet new people, learn new things and experience life in such great ways!

If you have been catching up with me on Instagram, you would know that I was in Seoul just a couple weeks back. Most of you probably don’t know exactly why I was there; it was a rather short trip to begin with!

Innisfree and I have been working together for a campaign on their new Jeju Sparkling Mineral Line products and I was given the opportunity to travel to Seoul to attend their annual PLAYGREEN FESTIVAL.

For those who are not familiar with the brand, Innisfree is a skincare & beauty brand inspired by the natural ingredients from Jeju Island, Korea. They believe in all things natural and pursue eco-friendly practices from their product packaging to empty bottle recycling program.

During the trip, I get to join in the fun and experience life with the consciousness of being eco-friendly! It was a back-to-back, non-stop activity throughout the whole journey! 

The festival took place at Yongsan Family Park where eco-friendly activities await their fellow brand lovers! It’s a pretty huge park and I remember clearly how awesome the weather was. It was sunny yet cooling, best combination in my opinion.

Throughout the day there were two very lovely interpreters, constantly making sure that everything was smooth sailing. The crowd that turned up was massive! Honestly, I was overwhelmed!!! They were all very enthusiastic with the activities even the males!

Lee Min Ho, the ambassador of Innisfree was there as well! It was my first time seeing a celebrity in real life and witnessing how crazy the fans were! He sure does look fine and I can’t help but adore the pale grey suit that he was wearing.

Above is a visual compilation of my trip to Seoul with Innisfree! Thank you for such a wonderful experience!

HOLA PEOPLE!!! It's the Luxola Influencer Takeover Season 2!
I didn't think that I'll be making more videos after the first video of my life in the previous season of Luxola Influencer Takeover Season 1. Honestly it is still very intimidating and awkward for me to speak in front of the camera.
I've been wearing glasses since I was 5 and it has definitely played a huge part in my life, in terms of learning how to style, match those glasses with the right make up, right accessories and clothing.
I would say glasses are pretty tricky as they can either be of great help (as an accessory) or a disaster that causes you to look a little, if you'd pardon me, pretentious/nerd. 

Choosing the right frame to suit your face is very important. There are many online guides available, just key in "glasses for different face shapes", or something along that line. You will be able to find sufficient articles to give you a better understanding of your face shape and the types of glasses that will compliment you!

Click play to see the make up that I've put on when I'm wearing my glasses!

Before I conclude this post, I'd like to thank Luxola for the opportunity and also fellow friends/viewers that have watched the video, gave me the thumbs up and also the honest/constructive comments. I would like to take this time to address 
some comments regarding contouring in this video.

I am fully aware now that I've seen the make up on the video and that the contouring section ain't great, especially on the nose area. It is my first time trying out the conturing kit from Alcina and I wasn't expecting it to be so pigmented/intense as compared to the usual 3CE or gel Sculpt from Illamasqua that I use. 

On set, I had really strong light beaming onto my face and so that led to my decision on stronger conturing. Trust me, the team and I were pretty shocked when I was contouring my nose. I think I dabbed on a little too much and used too much force contouring. The team pointed it out and we tried our best to lighten and blend it out as much as we can without disrupting the flow of the video. I'm extremely bummed this had to happen!

I hate to say it, but in conclusion, after looking at the end result of the video, I didn't manage to salvage it :/

 FORGIVE ME AITE!!!! Let's just focus on the eye make up! < 3

product placement

Monday, October 5, 2015

Did some product shoot for @triwaworld recently, product placement seems easy but it takes much more effort than you think. I kind of enjoy the trial and error process, hit me up if you would like to collaborate in creative product visuals! ;)
I'll be updating more over at my Instagram account @valerie_wang

Just a little update for the lovely peeps who have been supporting this space, I'm currently transforming myself into an octopus! There is so much things going on for me, all happening at the same time and it's a little overwhelming. 
But do wait a little more, a lot of great things are happening and I am definitely excited to share it with you guys! Catch up again soon!

< 3

friend indeed

A friend in need is a friend indeed. Heartfelt thanks to this girl for helping me out every single time I call! She don't question even when I'm doing ridiculous things, she joins in the ridicule.

It was about 3 years ago that I became aware, more sensitive about skin health and the importance to protection it against the sun. Daily skin care products play an important role in keeping our skin healthy  and aid in improving skin troubles. 

I  understand that there are some skin problems (pigmentation, wrinkles etc) that we will not be able to fully avoid with age to come. However, we can definitely slow down the process with proper care and products. I am not a skin expert nor beauty guru but what I can advise is NEVER EVER LEAVE home without sunscreen on!

Apart from that,  consuming Vitamin C is also a great way to keep your skin healthy and give it an extra glow! 

Here's a list of what I use/consume on a daily basis to keep my skin healthy!

T1 toner (IDS clinic)
C+ Serum (IDS clinic)
Parsley Seed Hydrator (Aesop)
UM ultra moisturizer (IDS clinic)
S2+ S1 Sunscreen (IDS clinic)
Sleeping Mask(Laneige)
Lyco-white (IDS clinic)
Vitamin C (GNC)
