How to take a chio selfie

Dear Dayre,

I put on makeup today cos I wanted to take a nice photo for Instagram! It's for Anna Sui's campaign hehe Anna Sui Caravan!! I'm gonna be at one of the events at Mandarin Gallery on 21st June, more deetz are on my Instagram 😁

Yes I only put on makeup when I really have to. Like events or if I need to do blogpost or Instagram post. If not I'm like just bb cushion and eyeliner full-stop!

So since I already have more makeup on than usual, I figured I'd zi lian abit with my phone!

ANYWAY.. My favourite app for zipai is called Camera360. This is like my secret for beauty zipai but now I'm sharing it with all my fellow Dayre-rians!!!

DON'T SAY I NEVER SHARE GOOD THINGS! This app is da bomb! πŸ™ˆ

I don't have that much eye makeup on: just eyeliner with a coat of mascara and light eyeshadow. But with this app all photos are like a chio.

With a different filter that makes the skin look super fair!

Tip one: Experiment with different hair partings and try to volumise your hair by just ruffling it up a little. That's always more interesting than just flat boring hair! You'll instantly look a lil sexier! πŸ‘

Here's another selfie taking tip: try tilting your head to find a deceptively good angle that makes your face look sharper! Or use your hair to cover your face partially 😁

Also, overexposing the photo will usually make you look better! πŸ˜‚πŸ‘

Tip number three: Use your hands and fingers to add some interest to a face selfie. It also helps to distract away from asymmetrical features and face shape!

It's about the strategic cropping too: my forehead is high so I sometimes crop it off to make my face look more balanced! πŸ™ˆ

Love my lip color: it's 3ce's lipstick layered with Dior addict Fluidstick! I'll tell you exactly which shades later hehe not at home already!

Last time I used to be quite fat BUT I had a not-that-fat face. πŸ˜‚ So I could get away with selfies! But ah….

Looking at my teenage photos and I'm quite horrified πŸ˜‚ THOSE EYEBROWS! Heng ah eyebrow embroidery saved the day.

3ce Creamy Lipstick in #11 Love Hate for the base and a bit of Dior Addict Fluidstick 551 Aventure for the shine and beestung look! πŸ’‹

What the two colors look like when blended together. I like layering lip products with different textures! For instance, a solid lipstick color with a liquid gloss or lip tint. ✨
