Orange Crush

By Joanna Koh

With summer around the corner (and already here in Singapore), I’ve been having abit of an orange obsession. It began when I was staying at the gorgeous Niraamaya Retreats in Kerala, India, where I saw a fellow hotel guest with bronzed skin, in a fiery coral bikini.
Upon returning to Singapore, I launched into a massive hunt for an orange bikini, which led to a splurge on summer clothing at GAP, before finally finding the bikini at Billabong.

The next trip I had planned was for a beach holiday in Thailand with the girls, and it was a perfect time to break out all the new, bright, if not fluoro, clothing, and to try out my new YSL Summer Look BLEUS LUMIERE eyeshadow palette. 


The look that I created with the YSL palette. Hell yeah this is #nofilter and #nophotoshop

“Inspired by YVES Saint Laurent’s fascination with the various hues of blues of the sea. Summer Look 2014 captures the alluring contrast between the fresh Mediterranean sea, with the glowing warmth of summer beaches to achieve the signature YSL radiance”  - YSL Beaute

Another beauty inspiration has been Sun Fei Fei at Prada with a flaming orange-red lippie, she is just SO beautiful.
