Aloha my lovely readers and friends! I'm happy to be back with another video for y'all! Thank you for your encouraging feedback last week when I initially "launched" my first style and makeup video.    This week, I thought of showing you how I incorporate some fall trends to my daily outfits vis-a-vis makeup looks. You may have already noticed my predilection towards comfortable yet chic style coupled with fondness for dark or bright lips. I hope you like this week's offering, for one, we're getting better at editing, yay!

Athleisure: just a fancy name for sporty chic outfit. 
Harlowe and Graham gray keyhole mock neck top
Black capri

Studs
Choose one studded item to rock and keep the rest of the look minimal. In the video, I was wearing a studded top (here's a cute style I found at Macy's, it's on sale!)

Statement Leggings
Think snake print, herringbone or mixed material (just like what I wore in the video, it has faux leather detail on the side. I found it on sale at Hautelook, last few sizes left!)

Ballet flats
Comfortable yet chic enough to wear for work or when running errands. You've seen me wear these Born flats many times!

White sneakers
They are so versatile, needless to say! My favorite is from Tory Burch.

Pullover
Layered or on its own, it's a fall must-wear (lots of style on sale at Gap)!

Lattice top
Harlow and Graham (similar style)

Layering
I work in a very cold office so while my "definition" of fall isn't the same as you guys in the mainland, I always, always, always layer! One of my favorites is this cardigan shawl from ecoskin which I snagged from Hautelook!

Makeup/Hair
Purple lips: Nars Audacious Dominique
Vampy lips: Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick Vamp
Oxblood lips: Burberry Lip Velvet Oxblood
Lazy bun: Use claw instead of hair tie to create a messy-lazy bun. Accessorize with nice earrings so you don''t look like you just woke up, haha!

what's your favorite fall trend?

If you are a frequent visitor or reader of this humble blog, you are probably aware that Strivectin is one of my favorite skincare brands because (1) their products are backed up by scientific research for all of 35 years (and counting) (2) they carry a plethora of products targeting the aging market or simply put, those who will work against odds to delay the dreaded wrinkles.

Hello my beautiful and stylish readers! I hope you are enjoying this new segment I have incorporated on the blog. Mahalo for your encouraging feedback because it has inspired me to improve the way I present to you these outfit and makeup ideas. So yes, we stepped up because instead of the usual selfie/ outfits by the mirror, moi decided to create a video! That way, you can see the total look in action and appreciate the clothes vis-a-vis makeups better. These are my daily work outfits, filmed inside my home office/ makeup room, minutes before I leave for work. Occasionally you will see my baby girl (furry baby) hanging out or sleeping as I turn and twerk (just kidding) and yes, ignore the small TV on the side because I always turn on the news whenever I do my makeup in the morning. One scene happened to capture the recap of presidential debate, oh well things we do in real life, haha! Sit back and enjoy, promise it's a short one!

Skincare is one topic I am most passionate about because skin per se is the biggest organ of the body. When I was still working for a dermatology pharmaceutical company, I'd often start my marketing presentation with humorous quotes to get the energy going. One of my favorites then was "you can't face a problem if the problem is your face". But pun aside, you and I know how flawed skin can wreck one's confidence. I talk from experience (acne-ridden teenager here) and back then, there's not much variety when it comes to skincare. Nowadays, the choice is as vast as the ocean. Organic,  green, natural, stem cell, cruelty-free, science-based, you name it, every marketer has something "revolutionary" to offer. Basically, it all boils down to personal preference and if you drill down to basics, minimal and naturally-sourced ingredients sometimes offers more advantage. Just like in life, the simpler the better.

If you stalk Sephora online looking for new releases, then you already know that It Cosmetics is the latest brand added to our cosmetic haven. I've read rave reviews of its CC+ Color Correcting Full Coverage Cream so my impulse radar went haywire, I have to try it once and for all! But is it really that good? scroll further for details and swatch comparison with my holy grail By Terry Cellulose Moisturizing CC Cream and second pick Giorgio Armani Luminescence CC Color Control Bright Moisturizer.

Can you believe we're half way done in October? everything is moving swiftly and long before you realize, Christmas is around the corner. And guess what, I'm pretty much done with holiday shopping for my loved ones. Yes, I am that advance! And like in the past, I mail out all the gifts one week before Thanksgiving to save me from headaches and long lines at the post office. Anyways, let's revisit the past week's outfits and makeups a.k.a diary of sorts...

Viseart fans have one more reason to splurge on another palette that's worth all the hype. I'm not a blush junkie but the Blusher Palette 01 Plum Bronze easily earned a prime spot in my makeup must-haves for fall/ winter. Are the shades really inviting? come, scroll down and see for yourself.

In collaboration with celebrity MUA Mario Dedivanovic, this 12-pan makeup palette by Anastasia is a neutral lovers' delight; the predominantly warm hues render quintessential fall vibe, something I gravitate to this time of the year. Scroll down for more photos, swatches and details.

Officially October! It's Halloween month, it also marks the return of The Walking Dead (in 3 weeks!) which means I am alive again! The past week was a whirlwind, extremely busy to say the least, work-wise. 

So I started this Style and Makeup Weekly Roundup to feature makeups I enjoy and adore  (links to previous reviews are provided for further reference) and to start a diary of outfits. As a side note, I take photos of my makeup and outfits in the morning just before I head out for work (with sneak peeks on my Instagram). I hope you find some of these helpful in your next makeup or outfit purchase.
