She washes her face with water every morning
At the beginning of the day, Kiko only uses water when washing her face and forgoes using a cleanser. This way, it is gentler on the skin. In fact, we’re also fond of the “water cleansing” hack!
She alternates between hot and cold water as she feels that it really makes her skin look better that way.
She applies skincare slowly
When it comes to skincare application, Kiko takes her time with it and never rushes the process. For example, she leaves her toner to completely absorb before moving on to the next step.
She says this habit was started by her mum, who advised her that applying skincare too fast will cause it to not work as well.
She uses a radiofrequency facial device
She loves using the Panasonic EH-XR10 Advanced RF Facial Device (S$592) which combines radiofrequency and ultrasound technology to target signs of ageing.
To use the device, you apply a water-based gel, serum, or milky lotion to let the device glide smoothly across your skin for visibly lifted, softer, and smoother skin after the first use alone.
She is a fan of Dior products
While Kiko is always implementing different products into her routine, she does seem to be fond of certain brands.
One brand she always seems to go back to is Dior, which is not surprising considering she was made the first Asian Dior Beauty Ambassador back in 2018.
She can do her makeup in five minutes
Her makeup routine is so easy that she finds herself doing it on the go in taxis. Kiko first curls her lashes and applies mascara before filling in her eyebrows.
She then applies a colour correcting base to her face and layers it with concealer for a more natural look. Lipstick is the very last step in her makeup routine.
She lines her eyes fully, filling in all gaps
Kiko loves a beautiful cat eye, so what she does is use an eyeliner to fill in the space between her eyelashes. This way, there are gaps along her lash line.
She also starts with the tail ends first when she is lining her eyes, and always makes sure that both cat eyes are as uniform as can be.
She loves a classic, ’50s-inspired makeup look
Even though Kiko could probably go as wild as she wants with makeup thanks to her beautiful complexion and features, she always has difficulty applying different styles.
Her go-to makeup look is the classic 1950s-inspired makeup such as those worn by the iconic Audrey Hepburn.
She often goes to saunas
Saunas are something that this model frequents as she says her face feels lifted and her skin looks brighter after a good steam session.
She enters a dry sauna and goes into the cold water a maximum of four times. She says that you have got to go into the cold water as it really does make a big difference.
She has a relaxing nighttime beauty routine
Kiko relaxes after a long day of working by soaking in a hot bath filled with hydrogen or bath salt, which really helps to rest her body.
To replenish her hydration levels, she also makes sure to drink a lot of water throughout the day.
