About Me / Skin Profile

About Me

I’m Allison, and I live in SingaporeI’m 19 and just starting university.

I started my beauty journey when I was 16, beginning with makeup – but I’m kinda more into skincare now.

Black Card holder at Sephora (that’s the Singapore VIB equivalent!); definitely spent waaaay too much there heh!

Currently prefer Asian beauty products – much easier to shop online, considering how I can lie in bed and stare longingly at all the things I want but already have……

Bonus: I really don’t like highly fragranced products, and I definitely have a love affair with airless pump bottles – I hate dipping my fingers into jars, as I tend to keep longer nails.

Skin Profile

N23 skin-tone – I’ve got neutral/olive undertones with fairly light skin.

Skin type is dry-combi; my cheeks are fairly dry, while I’ve got an oily T-zone.

My skin is mega-hardy, and my main concerns are acne, rough skin, brightening (especially with my dark eye circles!), and early anti-aging.

I am Singaporean Chinese, so I tend to look green-ish under flourescent light.

Since I live in Singapore, the weather is super hot (30ºC) and humid (80% humidity anyone?).
