My name is Chiang Lee Ming, I’m 29. People often told me I was born in the wrong era. I’m definitely belong in the 1940’s-1950’s, an old soul stuck in the modern city.

What Mantra That You Believe in?
Always stay humble and kind
Ok this is going to be a long one. Well it started when I participate Estee Lauder Model Search when I was 20, lucky me I got through as one of the 10 finalists, talent agencies started calling me, land myself a few jobs until I had my braces on.
I had to stop going for casting because no one wants to book a brace face. So instead of wasting my time waiting for my braces to come off. I brave myself to be a part of Malaysian Dreamgirls, a local online reality show. I really never thought I’d get through till Top 4. I think that’s where people start noticing me and started follow me on my social medias.
I’m a stylist and social influencer by day, baker and painter by night

Favourite new beauty product
I’m a big fan of Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair since I was 19 years old, but you know age is catching up so I thought of trying something new and surprisingly I LOVE IT! Dior Prestige Le Nectar is one of my favorite and this new brand in town from Kensapothecary called Grown Alchemist ANTIOXIDANT+ FACIAL OIL: BORAGO, ROSEHIP & BUCKTHORN BERRY is the bomb! Can you see I’m all about anti aging.
Building a time machine is impossible, but restore elasticity to your skin its totally possible. It’s never too early to start taking care of your skin. If you keep it healthy with a good routine from a young age you will be ageless.
