Picture this – You put on a full face of makeup in the morning before you head out the door for work, and right after that comes your weekly yoga sesh in the evening. You hop into the bathroom, look into the mirror and what do you see? Your face beaming from within, with your makeup worn in yet looking radiant and healthy, with just enough showing through. That exactly depicts yoga skin, the latest makeup technique blowing up on Instagram.

Sara Hill, a UK-based makeup artist explains how you can fake it till you make it sans the actual exercise with a step-by-step tutorial. She says of the technique that has been catching on with global makeup artists and beauty enthusiasts, “Healthy, glowing, hydrated, radiant, sheer, and natural. Skin that looks like skin at its very best.” Here’s how you can achieve the look at home..

Instagram Photo

Start by cleansing and prepping the skin as per usual, but allow the skincare to fully sink in before layering a primer on top. Then, Hill makes a cocktail by fusing three to four pumps of liquid foundation, one drop of face oil and one drop of liquid highlighter together. She then applies the mixture on the skin with her hands, saying, “It gets the circulation flowing, relaxes you, de-puffs, and makes the base sit better too.”

Instagram Photo

“Build up in layers on top until you are happy with the coverage created. I would recommend allowing time between layers,” she continues. Following that, she suggests adding a small amount of concealer, but only where you need extra coverage, such as on blemishes and under the eyes. She then uses a cream blush or bronzer before setting the look with a light dusting of powder.

Instagram Photo

To retain that dewy finish on the skin without mattifying it, Hill avoids baking and using any setting sprays that contain alcohol. This versatile look doesn’t just look good with minimal eye and lip makeup, but works wonderfully with bolder, more intense colours too. Now, good luck and get glowing as if you’ve clocked in actual hours at the studio!

If you’re anything like us, you probably have countless tabs of webpages open on your browser right now. Aside from Facebook and your email, there is literally everything in between – from that article you were meant to read the day before, a new recipe you want to try, to that list of apps you have been meaning to download.

It’s an eyesore Marie Kondo would definitely disapprove of and yet we just can’t seem to click on the “X” button to get rid of the tabs once and for all, let alone bookmark them into folders. So, why does this happen? It’s similar to multi-tasking and has essentially been called “task switching”.

Photo: TNW

It’s almost as if you’re protecting yourself against boredom and are attempting to satiate your various needs and urges, which is why you most likely have tabs for work, shopping and also mindless fun. The biggest drawback of task switching though is that not everyone is good at multi-tasking.

Instead, having a thousand tabs open can become overwhelming, leading to a potential information overload, thus resulting in short attention span and a lack of focus on ongoing tasks at hand. It increases the risk of distraction and if anything, it quells efficiency and productivity. That’s the danger of tabs.

On that note, it’s like internet FOMO. While our brain does have unlimited capacity, often times it cannot be overloaded and has its limitations. Hence, take a deep breath and click on that “X” button. There’s a 99.99 percent chance you’ll be doing yourself a huge favour.

Whether you were unfortunately a victim of snatch theft or you somehow misplaced it while having inevitable travel high, losing your passport while overseas can be a major inconvenience.

Not only do you not have the proper documentation to be doing much, getting a temporary passport from your home country’s embassy is another hassle on its own.. that is IF the embassy is even close by.

Well, with this new decree under the Fees Passports and Visas) (Amendment) Order 2019 of the Federal Government Gazette, you may want to take extra precautions to protect your passport at all costs should you be a Malaysian.

With effect from January 2nd, Malaysian citizens who lose or damage their passports will be fined between RM300 and RM1,200 for a replacement.

Photo: Traveloka

First-time offenders will be fined RM400, whereas children aged 12 and below as well as students aged 21 and below studying abroad will be fined RM300.

For a second replacement, the fine goes up to RM700 for Malaysians, and RM600 for children aged 12 and below, and students aged 21 and below studying abroad.

Those who lose or damage their passports for the third time will now be fined RM1,200, and RM1,100 for children aged 12 and below, and students aged 21 and below studying abroad.

Just make sure you don’t lose that damn passport if you don’t want to be penalised!

3. Gemma Chan – This navy blue Maison Valentino gown doesn’t just flatter the Crazy Rich Asians’ fair skin. It also extends the perfect amount of volume while allowing her to show some leg.

Photo: Getty Images

4. Emily Blunt – Designed by Sarah Burton, the Mary Poppins Returns star stunned in a sweet yet sexy intricate gray lace, high-neck gown by Alexander McQueen with a skin-coloured lining.

Photo: Getty Images

5. Saoirse Ronan – Looking wise beyond her years in a 1920s-inspired gown custom Gucci tulle gown decked out with crystals and a plunging neckline, this Mary Queen of Scots actress looked like an absolute goddess.

It’s been a tumultuous time for the UK-based body and lifestyle brand Crabtree & Evelyn as the company has made a conscious decision to shut down all of its physical stores worldwide following a filing for bankruptcy protection in December last year, citing “significant losses” from the rise of e-commerce and evolving consumer demand.

The only physical store that will be left behind is its concept store in Islington, London, and as for the rest of the world, Crabtree & Evelyn is moving its entire business online. There are already e-commerce sites set up in Australia, Singapore and Malaysia, so you can, in fact, still get your hands on your favourite products.

Trying to get pregnant isn’t always as straightforward for everyone. While some conceive without even trying, others have to subject themselves to a plethora of strategies, even if some may just be old wives’ tales. You’ve probably heard of recommended positions for sex and taking prenatal vitamins to boost the chances of pregnancy, but one unconventional method is using a menstrual cup. Yep, you read that right.

The menstrual cup is an eco-friendly and reusable alternative to pads and tampons, but as of late, women have been buzzing about the good ol’ silicone cup in efforts to conceive. How, you ask? One method is by depositing semen in the menstrual cup before inserting it into the body, whereas another involves inserting a menstrual cup into the body to keep the semen in place near the entrance of the uterus.

Photo: Allure

Does it work though? Technically, only one sperm is needed to fertilise the egg and in a cup full of semen, there are millions, so yes, it may just raise the chances for conception. In addition to that, the cervical mucus inside the body may also aid the sperm in swimming up towards the egg. Healthy sperm lives up to three days, and the longer the sperm swims around the uterus, the higher the chances of getting pregnant may be.

There is no harm in trying out the menstrual cup method and many women have touted it as a highly effective yet tiny investment to make as compared to spending fortunes on fertility treatments that, then again, don’t promise a 100% efficacy. Just remember that menstrual cups shouldn’t be kept in the body for longer than 12 hours, so be sure to remove them when necessary as leaving it inside beyond the 12-hour mark may put you at risk of infections.
