Daytime Style in Singapore
Here in tropical Singapore one has the pleasure to wear whatever your heart desires. Its warm enough to wear summery shades and light fabrics due to its climate and if you are in AC then it can be cold enough to wear light jackets and even boots! It's quite amazing, one is not limited to what one can wear, just need to know where one can wear what.
In this blog I want to share with you my discovery of this fashionable and stylish brand called bYSI. They have all types of latest trends and comparable to Zara prices and sometimes less. It's in between H&M and Zara in pricing I would say. This store seems to take inspiration from top designers and tweaks them into their own versions, much like Zara and H&M so you are sure to find on trend outfits. bYSI® believes that every woman should have the luxury to wear the latest and own a chic, relevant wardrobe that fits her lifestyle.

This wrap top has the most delicious sleeves I could not stop staring at them. I took a client shopping in this store and I ended up buying one too. The color is a perfect shade of blue and white stripes which happened to be another version of the Gingham top in grey pictured above. The wrap belt is also fun as you can wrap it and tie it into a bow, as I have done, or wear it any way you please. I paired the top with navy jeans from ZARA. These jeans, technically jeggings have high elasticity that make your legs look slimmer ( Woohoo!!) and I love how they feel, very comfortable. They'll bend with you and stretch when your stretching and all that good stuff.
What I like is that it's very Similar to Sarah Jessica Parkers top which coincidentally showed up on my Facebook feed after buying this top, I love her style so I was happy to see great minds think alike :)
Check her top out below, yup I need my hands on that. Not sure about those jeans though!
Here's my makeup look for the top I'm wearing above. Like most of the time I keep my makeup pretty neutral and focus on the lips with a subtle hint of pink. I have actually mixed 3 shades together but you can always find a shade that's close to this.
I used Makeup Forever Water Blend foundation which I absolutely love! It's so light that I almost forget I have foundation on. The new formula is a little more hydrating than the older version so those with very oily skin may need to use a mattifying primer first such as Makeup Forever's Step 1 matt primer. Another primer for oily skin is Benefit cosmetics The Professional Matt Rescue. I really like this because its a gel type formula but its hydrating at the same time yet dried to a matt finish , Perfect !
After applying primer and foundation, use a concealer such as Too faced Born This Way concealer. I like this because it's not cakey yet still gives good coverage.
I then used the NYX Sculpt and Highlight cream duo to subtly contour and dusting with a translucent powder to finish.
For the eyes, I used Neutral tones to keep eyes defined yet soft. I like palettes such as Naked 1 by Urban Decay as they have a range of soft neutral tones that work really well with most skin tones.
For lips I chose a pinkish hue because I find pink works very well with light blue but bearing my skin tone I chose to put a warm neutral lipcolor first and then layered it with a pink lipstick to change the undertone resulting in a new warm pink tone. I finished it with a slightly shimmery wash to give the illusion of a hydrated and fuller lip.
See you again here soon!
