Apply a little of Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Grind right the centre of the eyelid for an extra pop of glitter. Use your fingers to blend it out.

While we usually apply one shade of blusher over our cheeks, the professionals sometimes mix two or more shades to get the right look. Makeup artist Maeng shared that Seo Ye Ji's Cheek colour in "It's Okay Not to Be Okay" was created by blending these two blushers together.

Seo Ye Ji's lip colour was created with MAC Satin Lipstick in Peach Stock and Pupa I'm Matt Lipstick in Mystery Rose. We love that pinkish nude tone that looked so natural, yet gave her some colour on her lips. The cool tone created added to her cold vibes, fitting for her character in the show. I'm not sure about you, but I thought that the colours looked pretty even if they are worn on their own.

The skin on our lips is about five times thinner than that of the skin on other parts of our body, making it more susceptible to dryness and chapping. 


Bad habits like licking your lips, not drinking enough water, and even staying for long hours in an air-conditioned room can exacerbate chapped lips, and a lip balm will be your best bet to improve its condition. There are a plethora of lip balms in the market that we can choose from, but if you want something that can soothe and relieve dry lips with a hint of colour, Dr. Belmeur Advanced Cica Touch Lip Balm that comes in three pretty shades may be the one for you.

Dr. Belmeur Advanced Cica Touch Lip Balm is formulated with 5 different types of Cica (Asiaticoside, Asiatic Acid, Madecassoside, Madecassic Acid and Centella Asiatica leaf extract, dermatologically-tested, and does not contain the additional nasties like additives, parabens and ethanol, making it safe and suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.

The lip balm comes with a glow and serum formula, allowing it to glide on effortlessly on the lips, leaving behind a natural healthy glow on the lips and a hint of fresh herb citrus fragrance. It smells like a visit to the spa, if you get what I mean, a very relaxing, aromatherapy-like scent.

Retailing at $20, the Dr. Belmeur Advanced Cica Touch Lip Balm comes in three MLBB (My Lips But Better) shades — Pink Rose, Coral Corail, and Red Rouge. Because it is a lip balm and not a lipstick, it gives your lips a hint of colour without the intensity and heaviness, which is perfect for a fuss-free, everyday look. My favourite has got to be the Coral Corail that matches my go-to coral makeup look,
Dr. Belmeur Advanced Cica Touch Lip Balms are now available at THEFACESHOP official online store at

We have reached the point where aesthetics procedures are no longer taboo subjects and we talk about them with our BFFs over chit-chat. One of the most talked-about and most commonly performed procedures in Singapore is dermal fillers, because it is low-risk and has got zero downtime.

Dermal fillers help to shape and add volume on your face where needed. However, it is always important to look for a doctor with an eye for beauty so that you know that you will still look natural and beautiful after the treatment.

While many may have heard of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers that can instantly contour and rejuvenate your face, there is also a type of filler that acts as a collagen stimulator. That means these collagen-stimulating fillers, such as Sculptra, Radiesse, and Ellanse, encourage the natural growth of collagen and gradually restore volume in the treatment areas. With so many different types of dermal fillers in the market, consult an aesthetics doctor to determine which one is the most suited for your concerns for optimal results.

Seven ladies with different facial concerns tried fillers treatment with Dr. Terence Tan at Halley Medical Aesthetics in an attempt to contour and rejuvenate their faces. Read on to see their results.


Estella Goh

As age catches up with Estella, she felt that her collagen production has definitely declined and signs of ageing have appeared on her face. Estella also felt her chin did not have much definition. She consulted Dr. Terence Tan on her concerns, and Dr. Terence Tan suggested using the Juvederm range of HA fillers to add volume to her undereye areas, cheek areas, and marionette lines to look more refreshed. By adding fillers to her chin, and Dr. Terence Tan also shaped her chin for a sharper, v-shaped silhouette.

Jacelyn Phang

Jacelyn had been battling her dark eye circles and sunken eyes but she did not want to go under the knife. Dr. Terence Tan suggested filling up the indentation at her tear trough area for brighter eyes and a less tired look with Restylane HA fillers.

Carrie Sim

Carrie always looked tired because of her dark eye circles and eye bags. In an attempt to tackle her concerns, Dr. Terence Tan recommended her a combination of treatments for the best results. She did Ultherapy and threadlift at her eye area, and also filled up her tear trough with Belotero, a brand of HA filler for more volume instantly to achieve a more youthful and less tired look.

Dawn Sim

Dawn advocates a healthy lifestyle to slow down the aging process, but yet there's only so much it can do. When she got to know about Juvederm dermal fillers and how they can help to restore her skin's volume and youthfulness, she decided to give it a shot since they are minimally invasive and contain HA, which is a natural compound found in our bodies.

Ageing is a constant issue we have to deal with. And two years on, Dawn realised that the loss of volume on her face is beginning to be a problem again. This is when Dr. Terence Tan recommended Sculptra for her concerns.

Sculptra is natural, gives long-lasting volumisation, and it is great for people who like the concept of having the body generate collagen naturally for volumisation. This is also a perfect fit with her lifestyle and philosophy as a fitness and health coach to achieve transformation and rejuvenation from within!

Hannah Chia

Hannah was concerned that she was starting to look a little haggard due to collagen loss, and Dr. Terence Tan pointed out to her that the culprits were her deep laugh lines and hollow areas under her eyes, and HA fillers by Belotero can easily correct these issues. To further enhance her looks for a more youthful appearance and better facial contours, Dr. Terence Tan also recommended fillers for her sunken cheek areas and her nose bridge to enhance her facial features.

Hazel Lam

Hazel wanted to add definition to her facial features to enhance her looks. Dr. Terence Tan suggested HA fillers by Juvederm at her nose bridge for a higher, more refined nose and sharper chin for a more defined and attractive chin. Dr. Terence Tan also recommended volumising her mid-face with some fillers to reduce the sunken skin that came with age.

Rejuvenating My Skin With Fillers and Botox

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Tuesday, 23 June 2020 09:54

Now that I’m in my late 30’s, I know that age is catching up on me. I notice things like crow's feet, fine lines, hollow under my eyes as well as a general feeling that collagen has left the house. It’s time for rejuvenation – I want to look like me, refreshed.

I smiled super hard as I took the photo to the right, so that you can see my lines and crow’s feet.


Picking my aesthetic doctor

I went to see Dr. Terence Tan at Halley Medical Aesthetics because while any certified doctor can perform the same treatments I need, it is very important to pick an aesthetic doctor with the taste that you like.

Fillers Botox Results Singapore Halley Medical Aesthetics

I have known Dr. Terence Tan of Halley Medical Aesthetics for a long time and, having seen very good results from CoolSculpting at Halley Body Slimming Clinic, and having seen him fix areas I clearly missed out on myself, I naturally have trust in his taste.


Treatment plan and understanding fillers

After listening to my concerns, requirements and examining my face, Dr. Terence Tan recommended Botox and the Juvéderm brand of Dermal Fillers, which are made from Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a natural compound found in the body that helps to hydrate and moisturise our skin. It also keeps our skin plump and glowing.

He explained that the difference between the different types of dermal fillers lies in how densely their molecular weights are cross-linked together:

  • The softest, most spreadable dermal filler is suitable to fill in under eyes without looking overdone
  • A slightly denser dermal filler can fill out hollows
  • A firm dermal filler can be used to balance out facial structure

At the end of my consultation, Dr. Terence Tan prescribed a combination of fillers and Botox to create a natural yet effective lift to my face:

  • Botox for treating my crow’s feet and for giving me a slight brow lift
  • Juvederm Volbella (softest, most spreadable filler) under my eyes
  • Juvederm Volift (medium density filler) at my cheek area to lift sagginess
  • Juvederm Volift at my marionette lines
  • Juvederm Volux, (firm filler) at my chin, to balance out my face shape because I have an underdeveloped chin

Halley’s price list is published on their website, in case you’re wondering.

Treatment process

I felt comfortable during the application of my fillers and Botox because Dr. Terence Tan was diligent in letting me know what he was doing at the moment. I was also often given a mirror to check and see if everything was going to my liking.

Dr. Terence Tan injected the fillers using the “Magic Needle” ( actually, a micro-cannula) because it distributes the filler more evenly and enables him to apply the filler with minimal pain and no bruising. I was apprehensive at first because it looked blunt and I imagined it to be painful but, I can now confirm that the discomfort level was very low.

Juvederm fillers contain lidocaine, an anesthesia, which probably helped a lot, but the discomfort level of my entire treatment was so manageable, I received the fillers without any numbing cream, relying only on the application of an ice pack to numb the injection area.

The treatment took only a short time because Dr. Tan was swift and decisive. In no time, I have the refreshed look I wanted and a more balanced face from the chin filler.


Before and after

Right after my treatment, Dr. Terence Tan and I sat down to look at the differences with my before and after photos excitedly.

These pictures were taken just before the treatment and right after the treatment, on the same day.

The dark circles are from sleeping only 4 hours the day before but the lift to my under eyes was immediately noticeable and extremely obvious. What pleased me a lot, which might not be very apparent in the photos, was how much more balanced my face looked.

I felt soreness in the first few days and my chin was bruised and swollen at the underside, such that it looked imbalanced. Dr. Terence Tan made time to see me for a short consultation, to assure me that the bruising and swelling will go away in around a week’s time, and that injectables such as fillers need time to settle. In his own words “I could perhaps have spoken to you over the phone, but I think you will feel better if I see you and gave you that assurance in person”. Yes, it really did put me at ease!

These pictures were taken in the days after my treatment, where you can see the effects of Botox setting in as well. The swelling also went away and the chin looked more balanced.

No more crows feet when I laugh heartily, the lines under my eyes are diminished but not so smoothed out that I look unreal. Overall, I look fresh and my face is better balanced. I’m super happy with the results of course!
