Many people go through periods in their lives of being dissatisfied with their physical appearances, and this can in turn be one of the major sources of a generalised sense of insecurity.

But the thing is, we’re not completely helpless when it comes to influencing the way we look, and if you feel unhappy with your appearance, there are various steps you can take.

Here are a few things to consider doing if you find yourself in this situation.


Research cosmetic surgery and discover what different procedures would entail and could realistically achieve.

Cosmetic surgery* should really be a last-resort option, not a first resort by any means, but it is worth keeping in mind that cosmetic surgery has been improving steadily for some time now, and there are many things that an experienced cosmetic surgeon might be able to do for you if needed.

The key thing is to research the options presented by cosmetic surgery before committing to them. Discover what different surgeries will entail. Seek out eyelid surgery video and descriptions before committing to eyelid surgery. Look up facial restructuring in detail before committing to it.

Develop realistic expectations about cosmetic surgery and be mindful of the risks involved, but be aware that there are potentially helpful options out there.



Work on improving your happiness and confidence in other domains of your life, and see how it alters your perspective on your looks.

Sometimes in life, we project our insecurities and dissatisfactions onto things like our looks, when in reality, the true root of the issue is deeper and less easy to spot.

It might be that if you improved your happiness and confidence in other domains of your life, you might find that you would feel significantly better about your looks, virtually overnight.

Work on improving your happiness and confidence in other domains of your life, whether that means learning new skills, starting a business, or working past old hang-ups, and see how it alters your perspective on your looks.



Commit to health and fitness

It’s amazing what committing in a serious way to your health and fitness can do for your looks. Healthier living, in general, can lead to better skin quality, better posture, and a more vital and attractive aura in general.

Getting fit can help to develop curves where you want them to be, and reduce them where you don’t want them to be.

And aside from the direct effect of health and fitness on your looks, making steady progress on an exercise plan will naturally develop your sense of pride.



Explore new fashion styles and see how they work for you

There’s an old saying that goes “clothes make the man”, and you could say something similar about women, too.

Of course, the stuff that really matters — your character, your morals, your personality — have nothing to do with what you wear. But the way you dress can have a very dramatic impact on how you look and feel on a daily basis.

If you want to feel better about how you look, spend some time experimenting with new styles and seeking out new outfits that make you feel your best.


I guess that's all from me and I'll see you guys on my next post. Take care!



Blogger's note: *addressed to non-Muslim readers. I haven't found a solid verse of Al-Quran that state aesthetic surgery is haram but I'd like to state my opinion as fellow Muslim that I'm not encouraging at all as I believe everyone's created in the most beautiful way as Allah is the Most Beautiful and He loves beautiful things. Objection towards aesthetic surgery is not absolute as it's rather an objection towards exaggeration and extremism. 


Blogger Mail | iUNIK Calendula Cleansing Oil

Saturday, 16 February 2019


It's Saturday and it's time for another Beauty Blogger Mail! You guys probably won't even believe me when I said that this package arrived after 7 months to my local post office!

So I received an email from iUNIK as I was selected as winner to review the cleansing oil back in August last year and finally I've received a call from a postman to come and collect the item from Pos Malaysia Kota Kinabalu so I went. I'm glad that the product arrived perfectly in its box, wrapped with bubble wrappers hence I don't see any dent on the box and no leakage whatsoever.

I'm going to include this oil-based cleanser later in my evening routine; most probably after I've finished my Shu Uemura cleansing oil being the closest one to be finished.

I guess that's all for now! I'd sure update you guys with a review once I've used it enough to remove my daily makeup.

I'll see you guys next time! Annyeong~




Blogger Mail | Althea Makeup Box

Saturday, 2 February 2019



Oh, my god! Just look at these bunch of makeup products from Althea and these are all under their in-house brand; Althea Exclusives including one skincare product that can help those who are stubborn enough to still applying makeup on acne like myself (thank God for the thinnest acne patch these days) and I'm going to do a makeup tutorial using most of the items I've got here.

I've been noticing brands releasing their own rosy lipstick line which comprises several lip products in the shade of reds and pinks which is not coincidence I'd say with the Valentine and Spring season rolling in few months. Although I'm not really into red lipsticks but I guess it's not wrong having one or two that suit my skin tone for special occasions so I'm glad I get to try all of those lip tints from Althea.

2019 is the year where brands are releasing/upgrading their concealers and Althea came out with their own 4 concealers! Looking at the shades, I think I can use 2 to conceal imperfections and the other 2 to use for my undereye area and highlight my brow bone. As I've tried some earlier, the consistency is quite thick/pigmented so I'm gonna experiment a bit to see how much product I need per usage.

There are 2 products that I can use to highlight my inner corner of my eyes; my god, it's one of those products that was so popular several years ago when lots of Korean makeup YouTubers use it in their makeup tutorials but these days I don't really see that anymore as most of them prefer using shimmery eyeshadows for that so let's see if I could actually pull off that look.

I'd say the highlight of this Althea makeup launch would be the eyeshadow palette and I love it! If you guys saw my Instagram Stories where I used 6 ZOEVA eyeshadow palettes to show the depth of my considerably new Christy Ng Bag so you'd notice that I hoard lots of eyeshadow palettes last year and this year, I'm planning to get one or two more palettes for Spring looks that I'm planning for more #myramakeupdiary that should be up next month on my Instagram feed. The Althea's palette has beautiful range of colours that can help you to create easy transitional day to night looks; natural to glam makeup looks so if you're beginner in makeup or just need a palette for traveling then do check out the palette!



All of the above products are already available to purchase on Althea; links are down below and if you're new to Althea and planning to purchase more than RM150, use my link (click here!) for 20% discount off your first purchase!


I guess that's all for now and I'll be seeing you guys on my next post. Annyeong~
