3 hates/ 3 loves


A month or two ago Youtube beauty guru Andrea from AndreasChoice made a tag called Perfect imperfections, what you have to do is name 3 things you hate, dislike and/or flaws about yourself and 3 loves, likes and/or perfection about yourself. I am sad that this tag only allows 3 dislike because I can name 100!! lol who in the world doesn’t complains about themselves, I think everyone does, everyone wants to be perfect but sadly no one is perfect unless you're a doll or you're in a photoshopped  photo lol. Anyways...

3 hates about myself…
1) I am currently MAD at my skin!!! I have been breaking out for 2.5 years continuously but recently it's been getting worse that I won't leave my house without makeup on (mainly foundation and concealer). I have dry skin but for so reason I still have tons of breakouts even if I moisturize well and use acne products. Someone help!!!

2) Second thing I hate about myself are my dark and puffy circles...

3) Third thing I dislike would be my uglyyyy feet haha.. I think they are gigantic and wide-ish but nothing too bad, I started accepting them last summer when I started wearing sandals and gladiators =]



Now for the fun partttt ^^ 3 loves…

1) I love my eyes, not super big but not super small =], long/full lashes, full/manageable eye brows, double eye lids, I have no complains except the dark/puffy circle I mentioned above haha

2) I love my skin colour, I am a pretty tan for a 100% Chinese girl but I'm not overly tan that I'm a sweet potato I hope?. Many people think I'm Vietnamese/Filipino/Thai and I was so surprised that I got my first comment 6 months ago that a classmate thought I was Korean!!!! I was like WAAAAAAA???? Korean?? how??? I was kinda sad because I don’t like being pale and I think Korean are usually pale but when I thought back I think what made her think I was Korean was my hairstyle!! I tied my hair into a huge bun lol but I love buns they are soo easy and great, specially for "dirty" hair haha

3) Last but not least, my hair have improved so much recently that it is no longer fried/dry/frizzy/curly/puffy instead it actually have SHINE to it plus it is much more straighter well more like wavy (not curly and not straight but with some volume, I don’t think I look good with pin straight hair). Btw this is when I don’t even use a flat iron, I used to blow dry AND straighten every day at least once a day max twice a day depending on how often I wash my hair. Nowadays, I TRY washing my hair only once every 3-4 days!! I know, yuk!! but very beneficial for your hair plus I don’t flat iron it anymore only on special occasion =]
A few months apart, right picture was air dried with some curling mousse, left picture was air dried then blow dried a bit to make sure its completely dried before I go to sleep =]... I tried my best to find a picture to show you guys the difference but I couldn't find a pic that I didn't use mousse =P


What are your 3 hates/3 loves about yourself?

I think you look great in both pictures! I wish I only have to have wash my hair every 3-4 days =( I cannot leave the house unless I wash it once a day =( I know it's bad for the scalp but if only my scalp would stop producing so much oil =(

What cleanser and toner do you use? I think when it comes to skin care (and makeup) less is more! Fragrance free (cleanser and moisturizer) is always good.

I dislike my dark circles and feet too! Having big eyes calls for eye circles! lol.

Well, I can see why they think you're Filipina because there are a lot of Chinese people in the Philippines. My two best friends are part Chinese. lol.

You do have nice hair! <3

Helen: aww thank for your compliment =] I used to be like you too I can never leave the house with out fresh clean hair that means I have no time to air dry it therefore I HAVE to blow dry AND straighten it with a cheap flat iron, it's soo damaging and it had no shine but I've learn through youtube (again) haha. I actually sometime wash my bangs only and tie half or all of the rest of my hair soo it kinda looks clean lol... maybe u can use dry shampoo soo u get the same result but not having to wash your hair everyday?...I use Clinique's yellow moisturizer (gel), and I used to use their toner from their acne solution line but now I use went back to the Shiseido white lucent softener... yea I try to use stuff without fragrance and alcohol but I'm sometimes careless with what I use ..ohh I use a wide range of cleanser depending on wether I use make up or not and whether if its morning or night.. I use purity from philosophy,shiseido white lucent, cetaphil, seaweed cleanser from bodyshop, tea tree oil cleanser from st. Ives...I was thinking maybe is the foundations I'm using><

Toni: Thank you also for your compliment =], I love how I can spend more time on my face and almost zero time on my hair =] I rmb u did this tag too!! and yesss I hate my feet and eye bags but I guess it's ok b/c we can cover it with fashion and makeup =]. Yea I kinda like it when people think I'm Filipina and I actually haven't met a Filipino friend that are part Chinese so I had no idea there are lots of Chinese at the Philippines =P
