You know that summer is in full swing when you have an eyeshadow and face palette inspired by the thirst-quenching fruit. 

Too Faced Cosmetics launched its new Watermelon Slice Face and Eye Palette recently. The watermelon packaging breaks into two slices, featuring eight highly pigmented eyeshadows on one slice, and a highlighter, blush, and bronzer on the other. While having fun with the colours, you can also indulge in the summer vibes with the palette's watermelon scent.

The last we checked, the Too Faced Watermelon Slice Face and Eye Palette aren't in our Singapore stores yet. I guess we have to wait a little, or alternatively, get your travelling friends to bring one back for you!

Taeyeon has very good skin and she usually sticks to a very natural look. She has been spotted with monochrome makeup quite frequently, especially in shades of corals and pinks. Her eyelashes are always long and well-defined, resulting in a doll-like appearance. If you are copying Taeyeon's makeup look, make sure to pick an eyebrow pencil that is slightly lighter in colour for a softer look. No Kardashian arch Instagram brows, please.

Taeyeon seems to love parting her bangs in the centre and curling them a little to create the hippie perm bangs.

 

Hairpins

Hairpins have been trending since late last year and Taeyeon also jumped on the bandwagon with diamante hairpins.

 

Pastel pink hair

Pastel pink hair is a top choice amongst K-pop stars and it freshens up their look immediately. Super Junior's Yesung has done it recently and his new look made him looked like he was aging backwards. Taeyeon also covered a pink shade over her blonde locks and she was totally rocking that look.

 And let your half-up pony be high up, near the top of your head.

If you have long, luscious hair like Taeyeon, sharpen your braiding skills and take your braids to the next level. Braids are simple ways to add bonus points to your otherwise boring hairstyle.

The Results of My Coolsculpting Treatment with Elissa Medical Clinic (Part 2)

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Tuesday, 13 August 2019 11:12

Earlier in March, I shared about My CoolSculpting Experience with Elissa Medical Clinic [Part 1]. In this post, I would be sharing the process and the results of the treatment.

 

Dr. Winston Lin prescribed four CoolAdvantage sessions to treat the bulging stubborn fat at my tummy. The CoolAdvantage range of applicators under the CoolSculpting family reduces treatment time by nearly half as compared to legacy CoolSculpting applicators. 
 
For instance, treatment time with traditional CoolSculpting applicators takes 60 mins but this is reduced to 35 mins with the CoolAdvantage applicator. This means that my treatment was completed in 2 hrs 20 mins instead of the 4 hrs it would have taken with legacy CoolSculpting applicators. 
 
Another benefit of the CoolAdvantage applicator is the enhanced cup design for improved patient comfort as well as a larger cooling area to treat a bigger area. 
  
Before treatment, Dr. Winston Lin first used the CoolAdvantage templates to mark out the areas that required treatment. To be honest, I was really embarrassed about showing my bulging fats, Dr. Winston could easily pinch a huge pocket of it.
 
 
Before putting on the applicator, the clinic assistant then applied gel pads onto the treatment area to protect the skin during treatment. 
 

 
 
 
 
 
There was no discomfort in the whole process, and I had some moments to catch a wink for a quick recharge and got to 'work' on my phone in total peace while freezing my fat cells.
 
 
After the removal of the applicator, the treated area looked like a 'cake'. 
 
 
The clinic assistant would massage the treated area, to help break down the crystallised dead fat cells, which will be passed out by the body naturally. 
 

Finally! I am now able to show you the results of the CoolSculpting treatment. The front view of my tummy before the treatment looked 'pregnant' but three months after CoolSculpting, my tummy from the front was less round, and I felt that there was some excess space when I am wearing my t-shirts. The treatment managed to reduce fats by 25-30%. I shall let the pictures do the talking!

The side profile showed a more significant difference. Even the fats on the love handles were reduced.

It took me slightly more than 1.5 months for the numbness on the treated area to be gone. There was also no down-time, and I was able to function as per normal. I hope this post is useful in helping you decide if you would like to try CoolSculpting but do also keep in mind to eat healthily too. I have lost 1.5 kg after three months after cutting down late-night snacking and carbs for dinner. My current weight is now 51kg and I'll reach my ideal weight with another 1 kg off. 

 

Should you be keen to book a consultation for CoolSculpting, do make an appointment with Dr. Winston Lin. He is one of the very patient and reassuring doctors I have met:
