Baby Color- Candy Rainbow Brown lens review!

Can finally post after grudging through college assignments. ANYWAY- the long awaited review on these BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL LENS!!! ARHKJLEHKGH I LOVE THEM SO MUCH!!! ❤ I got mine from Fashion Eye :)! 

This is the description: 

Diameter: 14.50mm
Enlargement: 19.8mm
Water content: 40%
Disposal: 1 year
Prescription: 0.00 to -8.00

The Candy Rainbow Brown lens by Baby Color is really gorgeous. Strikingly golden brown with splints of black design and a small black ring really make it unique. They accentuate really well on pretty much anyone- legit. Though the brown-gold tones will most definitely vary depending on what eye colour you are.

This is what they look like in the lens case:

Image

top: no flash / bottom: with flash

Pros:

I love the colour and how it turns out! Its pretty much exactly how I wanted them to be. I expected that they’d be a lot darker as per say to what would usually happen when you get other lenses- but these ones are pretty close to the Ad picture. The small black rim around the lens is also a nice touch. It’s unique design allows the lens to be appropriate for both natural and heavy makeups. A lot of lenses have the thick one and they may come on too artificial for daily makeup looks- but will look great with heavier makeup looks with lashes and all. They really make the eye interesting and are really thin to wear so its not uncomfortable. The colour really pops out but not to too intense a degree so its suitable for day-to-night looks~~

Cons:

-I really don’t have any negativities on these ones. Perhaps – maybe its just me, I find these lens a bit irritating after about 6 hours. And vision gets a little blurry after that…….. but that usually happens when the lens starts feeling uncomfortable for any lens anyway…*yeah that’s all! LOL!

So overall rating I would rate them 4/5!!! I would love to try the other colours- Candy Rainbow Blue, pink and gray as well!!! ~_~v

Below are some shots on how they look like. (Top: with flash. Bottom: without flash)

I used these lenses for my Akane from Psycho-pass cosplay tooo! Turned out so well!

Dolly Wink 03 Country Retro Eyeshadow Palette by Tsubasa Masukawa Review!!!

Hi everyone!!! It’s been a little while for an update but hopefully you’ll checkout my FB page for more regular daily updates on looks and videos!!! ❤

Today i’m going to do the long awaited review on Tsubasa Masukawa’s Country Retro palette. I got this palette from My FashionEye <3!!! This one isn’t as popular as the other Dolly Wink palettes out on the market- probably because of the colour and because it seems a little hard to wear? But I think its cute, fun and funky!

Image

WELL NOPE. I’m going to show you 3 other alternative ways to wear these colours! (There’s a lot more but you can use these examples as guidelines for your creativity ^^!) First thing you need to note is that the colours on this palette involves orange and blue as the theme which means that you’re going for an awesome colour crash. Reason 1: they’re on opposite sides of the colour wheel. Reason 2: the colours are both warm and cool. This means anyone can wear it you’ll just have to adjust the colour matching and placement to what suits you. Tsubasa shows off her combo of the colours on the package and this look atypically matches someone with a more neutral skin tone- but I don’t think that would stop anyone wearing any colour >: P So the below two images are the packaging and steps to get Tsubasa’s look.

ImageImage

And this is me… with the look 🙂 

Image

 

Ok so now i’m going to show you the other looks I came up with. (+tips on how to apply it properly) :D! OH and i do really aplogize with the inconsistency of the photo colours >< I was in a massive rush ><

Look 1: Day look

Especially suited for: Hooded eyes, monolids, Deep set eyes, Wide set eyes (Just don’t highlight the corner of your eyes)

Image

1. Apply primer all over the lid and up to the brow-bone.

2. Apply a wash of orange all over the mobile lid and into the crease. (If you have a hooded eye or thick lids you want to bring this colour up past your double eyelid into the crease so that you can actually see the colour when you open the eye. Defeats the purpose if you can’t right ^~^?)

3. From the brow-bone, bring down the highlighting colour to the orange and blend nicely. Also pop this in the inner corners of the eyes.

4. Line the top lashline with the dark blue and bring it up a little higher than where you would put your eyeliner. Line the outer 1/3 of your bottom lashline with the light blue.

5. Line your eyes.

6. Curl and mascara~

Look 2: Clashing Blue Crease

Especially suited for: Hooded eyes, Protruding eyes, Close set eyes, No visible eye socket

Image

1. Prime your eyes

2. Apply an all over wash of orange over the lid working from the outside to the inside.

3. Follow the imaginary diagonal line from your eyebrow to the side of your nose. Apply the dark blue from the outer 1/3 of the lashline and work it into your eye socket (working from the outside towards the inside) creating a soft off shaped “c”.

4. Pop a little bit of the light blue between the orange and dark blue to help the colours blend. Re-apply some orange to the centre for a pop of colour.

5. Bring some of the dark blue down the outer 1/2 of the bottom lashline. Then apply the highlighting colour to the brow bone.

6. Cat line, curl and mascara.

Look 3:  Retro Blue Smokey.

Especially suited for: Hooded eyes, Protruding eyes, close set eyes.

 Image

1. Prime and apply a wash of the light blue up past the crease area.

2. Apply the dark blue to the outer V and enhance the depth of the eye socket by bringing some of the darkness towards the centre.

3. Highlight the brow bone.

4. Apply the orange all the way across the bottom lashline.

5. Line the eyes.

6. Curl and mascara.

 

Lipstick: I’d suggest keeping it along the lines of coral, oranges and nudes. Unless ur really out there, go for a blue LOL!!! So…  Here’s what I ended up doing for a bit of fun….

Image

So as you can see, this palette is really fun!!! My only peeve about it is that it’s not pigmented enough. Hence, I always always ALWAYS recommend using a really good primer over the lid and you’ll have to apply a couple of good pats to really get the colour vibrant enough for your looks. Other than that, great colour combo, looks cute and extremely convenient to take around!!! So overall I’ll give it about a 7/10. ❤

Well, that’s all from me today!!! Hope you enjoyed the looks and let me know if you try it out!!! 😀

Take care and keep creative!!!

Mint Green and jewel accent nail attempt~

Hi guys!! Its the long awaited nail post!!! I tried… i tried… D: It didn’t look so great from the fact that I did them myself afterall. The jewel art that I’m showing on my thumb is bought from Etude house~ I really love it so I’m going to use them sparingly >___<

So I used a mint green as a base, used a white for dots and covered the top with a sparkling clear coat that had love hearts in them :3 I then finally applied the jewel art on my thumb. 

Image

 

Image

I know… this time around the nails look dodgey >_< but it’s a good idea! I’m sure if you have steady hands it would be done perfectly!!! It’s winter for me now, but I think it’s an awesome look for the summer!!!

Studio Update/ Psycho-Pass, Asuna, Blue Rose Shoot!!!

Hi everyone! I’m a little behind in blogging this week because there’s been so much going on. I’ve got exciting news that I’ve got plans to be starting a youtube channel soon!!! There I’ll review some of the newest fashion cosmetic lenses and i’ll also be doing some makeup tutorials and my collaboration work with my friends!

So this week i started setting up my studio and did some cosplay shooting with friends as characters from the animes Psycho-Pass, Asuna from Sword Art Online and Blue Rose from Tiger and Bunny. It’s been a hectic couple of days trying to get things together but it all worked out smoothly. I’ve felt so blessed to know and getting to work with this awesome bunch. I had taken my leave from the cosplay community for a few years while I was back in uni but then it seems as though I’ve forgotten something that I’ve really loved. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to get around to editing the Blue Rose shoot yet but for now, Psycho-Pass and Asuna. Although I’ve posted these photos on my FB page already, I thought I might as well explain in detail what’s actually been happening. I would really appreciate it if you’re interested in getting your cosplay photos taken, edited or videoed or even if you have general questions about cosplay you can check out the advanced team of cosplayers and designers team and their pages as mentioned below!!!

So below is a quick phone snap from my friend/ filmographer SFVproductions.

E-Heart Lashes Review!!! <3

This brand of lashes were designed by a lot of popular beauty bloggers such as Nancy Chen and Yui and produced by E-Hsin Liu. As most of us would be pouring out our wallets on a box of Dolly Wink lashes that only come with two pairs, this is a high quality box of 5 lashes for the price of roughly $18.00 aud!!!

If you’ve read some of my previous posts, I have paired some of these lashes with the lenses/ makeup that I wore while I was overseas~

There’s different boxes you can get with these awesome pretty fluffs- you can get your hands on the limited type that comes with a mixture of the lashes OR you can get the box set of the specific type of lashes. :]

At first I was a bit afraid of using some of the lashes because they looked heaps huge. I’ve had bad past experiences where I purchased some big lashes from Priceline (Aus popular drugstore) and well- I looked like a clown. Ever since then I never reached for big lashes and have been afraid of them. But with these I decided to give it another go! And to my surprise it went really good!!!

The pair that i’m going to show in today’s review is Angel Eye from the limited type 01 collection. Usually I reach for something that looks more spread out and natural so I thought this would look kinda weird on me. But it didn’t. In fact it gave me a really nice boost to making my eyes look extremely big and dolly without looking scary!

This is the Limited Type 01 box set:

Image

These are the lashes by themselves.

Image
Sooooo as you can see they’re kinda huge!!! Would’nt of expected that my eyes were able to carry it! The thing about these lashes is that they’re quite durable so you’ll be able to get more wears off these lashes than the Dolly Wink ones. The lashbands are thicker so when you’re cleaning them, they won’t break as easily or let the lashes slide around the band as easily either. :D!!! The only downside to them for me is that they’re not as soft as the Dolly wink lashes. They’re definitely more dramatic and seem a little bit less natural- but for durability and cost price wise I think it’s definitely worth it. Especially if you’re going for an event or to a cosplay shoot, these lashes will definitely last throughout the day of wear’n’tear and give you a massive lash boost.

Here’s the look that I paired these lashes with today 🙂

Image

Image

I hope you guys liked the review : ) These lashes are great for price and quality. ^~^v! A good buy if you don’t wanna spend a fortune on lashes but still wanting to get that same dolly eye look! I got mine from FashionEye.

Take care and keep smiling!!!

The Dolly Eye: Icy Melon (Honey Brown) Lens review!!!

I’ve been really loving these lenses. At first when I looked at the design it kind of freaked me out because it didn’t seem so natural in photographs- and the colour… well the colour seemed a bit odd. But after some thinking and then mustering up the courage to get them it was all well worth it. I really love these lenses! They’re comfy and makes you look like a dreamy doll~ LOL.

This is what they look like in the case.

Image

The lenses are from The Dolly Eye’s Icy Melon series. They come in pink, violet, green, blue, honey brown and grey. 14.8mm in diameter and 38% water content.

Pros: It’s simple, It’s odd because its so different from other lenses but makes your eyes look dreamy. If you have brown eyes, the honey brown makes your eyes look like its gradating in colour which looks quite pretty~ It draws more attention to your real iris rather than the lens itself. Perfect for a wintry princess sort of look. The colour opacity is quite strong so there’s no need to be afraid of it not showing. (For those who are worried if the colour doesn’t show up for cosplay or other purposes). The regular diameter of the lenses and its simple design make them really comfortable to wear. I tend to find lenses with a lot more design a lot thicker and irritating to wear >W<!

Cons: If you pick a colour that contrasts with your eye colour then i’m afraid it’ll look quite unnatural and probably even pretty bad. I think this lens look best if you try and match it with your real eye colour or if not- you’ll really have to match it with a makeup look or else it’ll look weird. Another thing you want to keep in mind is whether or not how big your real pupil is. Because the design is only on the outer edges of the lens and fades in, if you have really small pupils then some eyewhite might show before the design reaches your pupils :L!!!

Other than that there’s not much that i didn’t like about these lens!!! The right colour can really bring out the original colour of your eyes and looked more natural than I thought they’d be~ :D!

This is what they look like without eye makeup:

Image

And this is with eyemakeup:

Overall rating: 4/5

Hope you liked the review~~!

Sweet Pink themed nails~

Hiiii. The other day my friends came over and after doing some home cooking we painted our nails. LOL! My friend kindly helped me out and did some of the designs on my fingers because i’m so clumsy >W<.
We found some cupcake and candy nails and thought they were awesome and tried to do it ourselves with limited items…- toothpick as a dotting tool and just the brush from the bottle. My nails were getting pretty long so I had to cut them >< 

Image

I think i’ll do more cupcakes next time… they look so yummy *_*!!!

Everyday Brown Eyes Makeup!~

It’s been a while that i’ve made a tutorial >< But today I’ve finally finished what I wanted to post up last week but didn’t get the chance to~ This is a look i’ve been doing quite a lot and I think it still gives you a pretty nice large eye effect 🙂 Im quite excited about my new set of travel brushes~ They’re by Rebecca Bonbon and the set came in a cute case too!! They were doing a promotion while I was in HK so I bought this lovely set for roughly $30AUD. They’re not as soft as my Picasso/ Sigma brushes but soft enough and don’t scratch or malt. PLUS THEY’RE PINK! Okay anyways… >: D

Steps!!!

Image

 

 

1. Start off with a clean face. Tone and moisturise~

2. Prime the face with Porefessional and conceal blemishes with Boiing~

3. Then apply the BB cream and set with pressed powder. (I used the Jill Stuart one instead of the benefit one)

Image

 

4. Prime the eyes with Bobbi Brown’s cream shadow.

5. Then use a small eyeshadow brush and take some of the third shadow colour from the left~

6. Sweep this gently across the top lashline and outer half of the bottom half. Repeat this step with the darkest colour but go even closer towards your lashline to create a gradient effect with the browns~

Image

 

7. Line your eyes with a black shadow and then (optional) use the thinnest liner brush you have and apply the gel liner as thinly as you can on your lashline.

8. Apply the topaz eyeliner to the bottom waterline to brighten up the eyes~

9. Curl and apply mascara~

Image

 

 10. Contour the face/nose with some of the brown contouring/ eyebrow colours from the Kate palette.

11. Apply blush in a diagonal direction, parallel to the hollows of your cheek bones~

12.Using the small fluffy end of the brush provided in the Kate palette, apply the darkest colour and blend it into your eye sockets. This makes your eye folds appear bigger and more defined~

13. Also with the same palette, fix your brows if needed.

14. Apply a lip tint and a little bit of clear gloss if needed~

 

*quickly runs off to fix bed hair

Finished :D!

Hope you all enjoyed this tutorial ^~^ The lenses I’m wearing are Icy Melon and supported by FashionEye.

Take care!!!
