The Essentials

Unruly eyebrows. Dead straight hair. Teeny tiny lashes. Welcome to my world! Whether it be at my local chemist, or the glossy pages of a beauty magazine – the pretty models with Caucasian skin stare back at me.

I’m different. My dad is Hokkien Chinese and my mum’s ancestry is from Chaozhou – in short, my genetic heritage is as Chinese as they come. Besides being immensely proud of this fact, I wondered whether anyone else of an Asian or ‘different’ cultural background faced a similar problem I did.

Enter Google. A quick search and I discovered that I wasn’t alone. Hallelujah! Turns out, if you investigate hard enough, the answers to some of the most puzzling ethnic makeup problems were a click away.

First, I knew I wasn’t alone. But secondly, I didn’t want to go through 15 different articles, eight pages into the word search to find the answers!

By using my years of working on Breakfast television as a reporter and writer, I’m going to sieve through ALL the information out there and provide you with the need to know basics.

Like how to tame unruly eyebrows, how to correctly apply a winged eyeliner and how to keep your straight hair wavier for longer.

With a team of makeup professionals, I’ll help give you these straight forward answers. My ultimate goal is to make your life easier so you can kick arse, and fulfil your potential at work, at home or wherever your heart is content.
