Turning 30 | Skin, Makeup, Hair and Health

Posted on

Hey guys, it’s Andrea. I make things as ‘the codex club’ on here, but I’ve never posted a personal YouTube video where I even talk, so I thought it was about time. I turned 30 yesterday. And for some that’s not a big deal. But for me, it was always something I talked about when discussing goals. Like ‘when I turn 30…’ ‘this is what I want to do before 30’ and I realize I’ve done some of it, and I’m happy with where I am- but there’s a lot I still want to do. Here are some of the things I’ve worked hard to gather and share here.

Skin, Makeup, Hair Loves:
I had to pick up things when I was acting on shoots (and something a makeup artist did worked well), or a friend told me ‘do this’. My little sister actually gives me the most tips. My mom never really wore makeup, and stressed just taking care of our skin. Which is great! And she looks great for her age. But there are some things I do, and I hope it helps. 

  1. Elf 83408 Blemish Control Primer Clear .47 Oz
  2. Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Marine Boosting Mist travel size 0.24 oz
  3. iS CLINICAL Hydra-Cool Serum, 0.5 fl. oz.
  1. Anastasia Beverly Hills - Brow Wiz - Granite
  2. Benefit Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Fiber Gel Gimme Brow+ 5 Deep
  3. Buxom Full-On Lip Cream Mai Tai (coral) .14 oz
  4. Neutrogena Moisturesmooth Color Lipstick, 80 Rich Raisin, .011 Oz.
  5. NARS Blush Orgasm
  1. UNITE Hair 7 Seconds Detangler Leave In, 8 Fl oz

I saw a few Chinese-American makeup tips on youtube, but this is what I do. It’s not really who I am to just talk about products, so I’d like to also talk about general health, and what’s below the surface.

NutriBullet smoothies. A huge tablespoon of peanut butter plus as many fruits can fit, some spinach, and either milk or almond milk.

Which I also wrote about in a prior blog post: http://thecodexclub.blogspot.com/2018/05/blog-post.html

Yoga videos on here (yoga at your desk! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAUf7aajBWE)

And just some reflections on Bourdain passing, and life in general. We live in an age that’s increasingly connecting through social media, and I’m inspired to try and make those connections more and listen to you guys so I hope we can keep in touch.

For a list of my goals (for the next thirty years) please see the updated 'About' page here.
