    • Life-saving eyeliner hacks every smart career woman must know

      “Eye” know you love eyeliner, so I’m betting you’ll dig these genius eyeliner tips and tricks that should become indispensable to your morning makeup regime

      1. Don’t use eyeliner.

      Searching for a smudge-proof solution to streaky gel liner? Drumroll, please: Just don’t use eyeliner. Make for mascara to line your lids instead.

       

       

       

      Wait, what? But how? Easy-peasy. Grab an angled eyeliner brush and dip it in your mascara of choice, then brandish the brush as you would any conventional eyeline. Most mascaras have a weightier proportion of waxes and oils in their formulas, making them highly “hydrophobic” (chem-speak for water-repellant) and therefore better suited for our budge-proof purposes. Takeaway: Moisture-resistant mascaras make for an excellent eyeliner alternative.

      2. Upside down, you turn me inside out.

      Storage is of the essence when it comes to extending the longevity of your liquid liners. Stash ‘em standing upside down in a clean container and let gravity do the work in ferrying the fluid downwards to bathe the bristle tips in fresh formula.

      3. Lube up!

      By the same token, simply dispense a drop or two of your favourite face oil directly into dehydrated gel pots for instant invigoration. Stir it around the surface of the erstwhile bone-dry eyeliner and it’ll be good to go!

      ALSO READ: This ‘silicone breast implant’ may change the way you apply makeup forever

      4. Mind the gap.

      For a natty negative-space spin on the conventional cat-eye, try this futuristic feline flick trick courtesy of Shu Uemura’s assistant education manager Sophia Chia: “Leave a tiny gap in the middle of the tail for a really cool graphic look.” Product recommendation-wise, try Shu Uemura’s spectacularly smudge-proof Calligraph:Ink liquid liner ($58 for cartridge and applicator), which boasts carefully chosen bristles of varying firmness for a gorgeous glide.

      5. Lock lips with your liner.

      A creamy cinnamon or chocolate coloured eye pencil is perfect for pampering your puckers, particularly if nailing moist-matte #KylieJennerLips is your #InstaBeauty goal. If you’re concerned about creases, remember to layer a moisturising salve on your smackers under your colour.

      6. DI your eyes with eyeliner.

      Most of us with a glancing knowledge of makeup will know that white liner on your waterline, which is the pinkish rim around your eyes, will give the illusion of bigger peepers. Selecting a liner with good glide is absolutely essential for waterlining – you don't want painful tugging around the delicate orbital region. In any case, once you’ve got your white liner on hand, simply start from the inner corners and deftly trace around the contours of your lower waterline. Blink rapidly to transfer some of the white pigment to your upper waterline for a diffused, more natural appearance. So easy!

      Image: 123rf.com

      7. Engage in some shadow play.

      “Eye” adore using single shadow pots – try Cle de Peau Beaute’s beautifully blendable suite of seasonal colours – as a quick-and-dirty stained liner look. All you need to do is to grab an angled sponge to pick up the pigments from the pot. Use fluid, feathery strokes to rim the upper and lower lids, then smudge ever so slightly for a provocative morning-after vibe.

      8. Finally, shake it all off.

      Well okay, more like swipe it off. Made a makeup boo-boo? Try this quick-and-dirty (or is that quick-and-clean) hack on for size. All you need is a bunch of cotton buds and some micellar cleansing water on standby. Dip the cottony end of your bud in the cleanser, press the wet tip onto the superfluous smudge on your lid, then sweep out and up towards the temples in one deft, decisive move. You can then pat in some concealer to cover up the newly smudge-free swatch of skin.

      Right, then. You know the drill: Sharing is caring, so if you’ve got a good DIY hack of your own to recommend, go right ahead and spill it. Here’s to keeping your flick “on fleek”!

    • 'Baseless accusations' against Govt must be dealt with openly: PM Lee on Oxley Road dispute

      SINGAPORE: Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has apologised to Singaporeans over the dispute between him and his siblings over the house of their late father, Mr Lee Kuan Yew, at 38 Oxley Road.

      "I deeply regret that this dispute has affected Singapore’s reputation and Singaporeans’ confidence in the Government. As your Prime Minister, I apologise to you for this," PM Lee said in a statement on Monday (Jun 19).

      "As the eldest of the siblings, it grieves me to think of the anguish that this would have caused our parents if they were still alive."

      PM Lee has been locked in a dispute with his siblings over their childhood home, and the matter spilled into the public sphere last week when Mr Lee Hsien Yang and Dr Lee Wei Ling issued a joint statement accusing their brother of abusing his powers in Government, saying they have "lost confidence" in him.

      PM LEE TO REFUTE ALLEGATIONS IN PARLIAMENT

      The Prime Minister said much as he would like to move on, the "baseless accusations" against the Government cannot be left unanswered, and must be dealt with openly.

      He said he will refute the charges in a ministerial statement when Parliament sits on Jul 3, and that all Members of Parliament will have the opportunity to raise questions for themselves and their constituents.

      "I have instructed that the PAP party whip be lifted. I urge all MPs, including the non-PAP MPs, to examine the issues thoroughly and question me and my Cabinet colleagues vigorously.

      "I hope that this full, public airing in Parliament will dispel any doubts that have been planted and strengthen confidence in our institutions and our system of government," said PM Lee in his statement.

      He also assured Singaporeans that the dispute will not distract him and his Cabinet from dealing with more important national issues such as the economic and security challenges facing Singapore.

      "As public servants, my Ministers and I will always protect the integrity of our institutions, and uphold the strict standards separating private affairs from our public duties," said PM Lee.

      "We are determined to repair the damage that has been done to Singapore. We will continue to lead our nation and serve you to the best of our ability."

    • New Zika cluster at Kensington Park Drive

      SINGAPORE: Two new cases of locally transmitted Zika have been confirmed at Kensington Park Drive at Serangoon Gardens, the National Environment Agency (NEA) said on Wednesday (Jun 21). Both cases involve residents in the vicinity.

      This new cluster was notified on Wednesday, and NEA has commenced vector control operations at the cluster area.

      "Residents and stakeholders are urged to maintain vigilance and continue to eliminate mosquito breeding habitats, as there could be asymptomatic or mild, undiagnosed cases which might result in further transmission of the virus if there are mosquitoes in the vicinity," NEA said.

      Yeah. I know right?

      According to Channel 8 news, the current Jurong East bus interchange will cease operations in the third quarter of next year. (http://www.channel8news.sg/)

      1. A new temporary bus interchange will be built, by the middle of next year.

      2. The new temporary bus interchange will be located opposite the current temporary bus interchange, between JCube and JTC Summit. Gateway Link will be closed, to combine the two parcels of land into one. Jurong East Street 12 will be expanded from 2-lane to 3-lane.

      3. The new temporary bus interchange will have the usual bus interchange facilities, like canteen and staff lounge. All 18 bus routes will relocate there.

      4. A 230m bridge will be built, to connect Jurong East MRT Station to the new temporary bus interchange. 

      5. The current site will be redeveloped into a mixed-used development, comprising of an integrated transport hub, and the headquarters of LTA and Ministry of Transport.

       

      Anyway, thank you lemon1974 for sharing this information. It was shocking indeed, to learn about it. If only the government had done better, when planning for the new developments around Jurong East MRT Station, back then in 2008 when the Jurong Lake District was announced.

      Nonetheless, the damage is done.

      Although this may be a mistake, at least now we got two very good malls - JEM and West Gate - and the scenery at level one, which would otherwise not be possible if they had built a bus interchange at level one.

      And also, a new road, a condominium and a shopping mall called West Gate. All these would not have been possible if the original Jurong East Bus Interchange had remain in the way, obstructing the developments from taking place.

      So, there's a good and bad to it.

      For sure there are change of plans, considering how much ambiguity there was back then. But at least now there is a better plan, in developing the area around Jurong East MRT Station.

      Besides, the new temporary bus interchange would be in use for around seven years (2018-2025), before the new permanent bus interchange is ready. The current temporary bus interchange has already been in used for six years (2011-2017), that by now it should have already "recovered the costs".

      By the time the permanent bus interchange is ready, the new temporary bus interchange would also have recovered the costs.

      Therefore, I think it should be okay to build a new temporary bus interchange to replace the current temporary bus interchange, to make way for a new permanent bus interchange.

      18 services... That is if you consider 97 and 97e as one, 98 and 98M as one and 143 and 143M as one. 

      Anyways, this is quite telling that the PCS service and CW3/4 which is currently at the int will be moved out. I am predicting that the former would be moved to a bus stop elsewhere in the JE MRT vincity, while the cross borders may face the same fate, or may be relocated to the new Tuas ter. Got a feeling that any changes to that will have to wait till the opening of the new ter...
