  1. Hey Venetia(:

    Well' i have eczema and therefore I am really protective of my skin but at the same time really lazy but one beauty secreat I live by is to cleanse my face twice each day, morning and night.

    It's really simple and pretty much common sense but it works wonders.


  2. NAME: Sabeeta
    In winters, my heels become cracked and nothing works on them. My mother makes me a moisturiser with equal quantities of lemon juice, glycerin and rose water and it works like wonder!

  3. This is something I found out quite recently but apple cider vinegar is really good at clearing up blemishes and has a whole host of other benefits to ( it tastes pretty foul on its own so I like to make a salad dressing with it or mix it into my soup noodles, also if I have spots I just dab a little bit of it on them at night and it really clears them up, even better than tea tree!

    Also I couldn't live without my Clarisonic ( the reason my skin is so clear now is because of that little miracle machine!


  4. HI Venetia!
    The one beauty tip/secret i can't live without is simply getting enough sleep!
    When you don't get enough sleep your immune system will drop and your skin condition will worsen.
    You can really see the difference when you do get enough sleep compare to when you don't.
    Dry skin, panda eyes (dark circles), breakouts, wrinkles and lines. All your worst nightmares come to life!

  5. I've always had terrible skin; bad acne and huge pores. But my secret for clear skin is oatmeal! I wash my face with oatmeal every night, it works as a cleanser and an exfoliant :} I also mix it with water/yogurt and use it as a mask once weekly and it makes a world of difference for my face :D

  6. hi what a great great giveaway! I have never tried NARS - and i also do hope that the giveaway is open internationally.
    It may sound simple, but genious lies in simplicity - i drink a lot of water. Then i feel better, and when i feel better, i also look better.
    I hope you too have a mystery beauty weapon and will share it with us,
    Thanks for the chance, Radmila, (from Ukraine)

    sunscreen! i never leave home without applying my favourite biore sunscreen because sg's weather is unforgivable! it's always better to be safe! :)

  10. Keep a positive attitude and a happy outlook on life. A happy outlook triggers the release of endorphins which increase natural production of collagen. Best of all, it's free!

  11. Hello venetia,

    fun fact: Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
    According to the bible, the chicken came first: "And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. And God said, 'Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.'" Genesis 1:10-20.

    beauty tip: I can't do without my twice in a week routine- egg white mask!! It works really well and your skin feels tight like a baby after application. Egg protein has the perfect mix of essential amino acids needed by humans to build you own tissues. However, if you have really sensitive skin, you might want to avoid that just in case..

  12. I can never leave the house without my Burberry Fresh Glow. Is the best product that I have tried and it works well with my skin. I usually top it up with a bit of powder to blot the oil away but even on it's own, Fresh Glow does wonders! Gives you that natural look without feeling too naked. Try it!

    Name: Ast

  13. keep your beautiful imagination and exquisite humor. xx

  14. Coffee scrub! ;) The real ones.

  15. hi venetia!

    i love love love nars ever since i got my hands on their blushers when i first went to nyc! however, recently i've been exploring different ways to maintain my skin care regime. been trying out a few various products to maintain my skin.

    my beauty tip i've discovered has to be having the right eye cream! once we've got the right eye cream to protect our eyes, everything else will naturally fall into place no matter what other skin care products we use. after all, beauty always lies in the eyes of the beholder! (yes, pun intended!) ;)


  16. Hi Venetia!

    Sleep with 2 pillows (or more) on your back so that you reduce water retention on your face and eye bags!


  17. hi Venetia!

    one beauty tip i cant live without: putting vaseline on my lips before i sleep daily :)


  18. hi venetia!
    my beauty tip is the basic - moisturise. make it a routine, never miss a day or night. also, water! always carry a bottle wherever you go, keep you and your skin hydrated.
    i dont own any nars product so it'll be awesome to win this giveaway! *fingers crossed*

  19. I have no idea if this is international or not but if it's not international i am gonna cry my eyes out. My beauty secret for perfect skin is washing out my skin with oatmeal, it works for every skin type, i have a secret routine i follow every single day. I take some common oatmeal, put some water on it and press it between my hands then gently rub it on my face (and neck/ don't forget your neck). I rub it in a circular motion and leave it up for 1 minute, then i wash it out with water, dry my face with a clean towel and apply a strawberry milk lotion.
    The strawberry milk lotion i am talking about isn't an expensive one, you don't even buy it. All you need is milk and strawberries (blueberries work as well), you squeeze the strawberries with the milk inside a little cup or plate whatever works for you, then you simply take a clean cloth, put it inside the cup/plate and apply it on your face (you can do this with your fingers as well).
    Strawberries really smooth out your skin and they are perfect for sensitive skin types. As for milk? We all know that Cleopatra used to bath with milk, so yeah it does wonders: if your skin is porcelain white it makes it even more dreamy/porcelain and if it's a darker shade it gives a nice summer-ish glow.
    Oatmeal exfoliator and milk/strawberry lotion: and tadahhhh fab skin.

  20. um i forgot my name :( silly me...

  21. My beauty tip is fresh parsley and Greek yogurt facial masks. They lighten age spots and clear up my skin, yogurt acts like a toner and essential oils in parsley like a moisturizer. It is the best home-made mask I've ever made and works for all skin types.

    Beauty tip:
    Aloe vera gel! I can't live without this as my skin is both acne prone and sensitive. The WORST combination ever! PLUS, I have itchy fingers (hence I tend to squeeze my pimples a lot) and I travel often due to work. The aloe vera gel helps to clam my skin after my DIY "facial" sessions, and moisteurize it when I am onboard the plane where the air is horribly dry. Best facial product EVER~~~ *cue music*


  23. Hi!

    My one beauty tip/secret (which I personally swear by) that I can't live without is using extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) as a make up remover! It is AMAZING!!
    After hearing about how EVOO can be used as a make up remover, I tried it out and was so amazed by the outcome! Most of the store bought make up remover contains alcohol and I didn't really like the idea of using 'alcohol' on my skin. Using EVOO, I don't have to worry about the alcohol content and it is also able to remove all traces of my make up, even the stubborn waterproof ones, and my fav thing abt it is that if I were to leave a thin excess layer of EVOO on my skin for a couple of hours after removing my make up, it helps to moisturise my skin, leaving it really soft after I cleanse my face during my shower.

    What I do is I get an empty bottle, fill it up with 3/4 of filtered water and 1/4 of EVOO. The EVOO will float on top of the water so shake it well before using and just use it with cotton pads!
    Super inexpensive and super effective! I've been using it for more than a year and it has worked so well for me!!

  24. My beauty secret would be use as much organic skincare as possible. Why slap brutal chemicals on your face/hair/body every single day knowing it can harm the skin and hair, accelerating aging or even worst knowing the products do contain carcinogenic properties? Just imagine, finishing a bottle of toner and moisturizer every 6 months or so, how much ml of chemicals are lingering on the skin and diffusing into the bloodstream? I would recommend Moogoo for alternative non-chemical infused skincare that really works. I am closing an eye for makeups and the related. Organic makeup doesnt have the same effect as the real deal. I also mix my nars foundation with a tiny bit of tumeric, its a great trick for those who find that foundations can be too ashy or too pink for their skins. They are anti-inflammatory too, its my secret weapon and now its yours!

    ps: just in case you think I am a hallucinating nuthead, I am trying to win this for some I dearly love whom has been dreaming about purchasing her first nars product.
