1.Have you got any beauty, makeup and hair tips and stylish secrets?
Drink enough water and moisturize your skin. Don't wash or dye your hair too much ( I don’t dye my hair and I go to a hairdresser twice a year). Always wear ligloss to hydrate your lips. Always clean your face before sleeping and when getting up. I never stay in the sun and use daily sunscreen, and if I want a tan I use some self tanner. My hair and my skin are my everything :) Well, I can go on like this, but I think most of it you already know.
