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!

On the other hand~ I did my first splurge today! Here we are!

 

Image

 

A bunch of stuff i’m not really going to go through name by name LOL but I can surely tell you it’s a lot cheaper than what you can get from your local store if you’re from where I am ^~^

Image

Originally I was after both the red and green 500mm Bioderma makeup removers until I saw this limited packaging… and well.. yeap.. the cute pakaging won me over. LOL!!!

Image

Welll THIS!!! YAYYYY!!!! Jill Stuart haul!!! After spending a certain amount, they gave me this super super cute makeup bag, air freshener and primer sample. ~ I love the whole range but to be honest, I’d only spend it on this luxury brand once in a while~

Thas all for now!!! Can’t wait to post high res photos up once I return!!!

Take Care!!!

Spring Look~ [Photo Heavy!]

How are we all today!? For today’s look I used the same palette as the previous cheesecake look. But this is a lot lighter in terms of liner and everything else. Although it’s autumn in Aussie land, I’m going away to spring and many of you who read this is probably in the middle of spring too! So I thought this would be appropriate.~

Products:

Image

 

Pic 1: Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly BB Cream, Jaminkyung Crema Caracol (snail cream..LOL), Stila perfecting concealer in shade 27(i think… it’s really used ><), MAC blush in Supernova, Palgantong Makeup powder in original beige, Makeup Forever 5 Camouflage Cream Palette, Maybelline lipstick in 303, Tony Moly Shimmer Cube in Brown.

Pic 2: Ben Nye Grande Colour Palette (I used the gold yellow and pink), Lioele all in one gel liner in Choco Brown, Jill Stuart Palette in 09 mandarin citrine, MAC lash curler, Lancome mascara in Hypnose.

Steps!

Image

 

1. Apply cream and a base over clean skin.

2. Beacuase I have some breakouts and red patch on my cheek, I used my makeup forever palette and took the green to lightly correct my skin colour. (Green cancels out redness)

3. Using a damp sponge, pat on minimal concealer and BB cream. I’m using bb cream for this look to keep a fresh and non cakey look~ I also used concealer as an eyeprimer.

4. Lightly powder the face for a poreless face!

 Image

 

5. Taking a white eyeshadow, apply this all over the lid and bringing it up to the brow bone.

6. Taking a cream yellow, apply this to the inner thirds of your eyelid.

Image

 7. Taking a stronger gold-ish yellow, I apply this on the centre right over the yellow shadow from before and blend it out for a nice gradient of colour.

8. Now take a fluffy buff brush and smother that into the outer V and using a sweeping window motion blend it into your crease.

9. [sorry I didn’t get a photo for this step><] Use a bullet brush and take the hot pink and line it over the top lashline and outer third of the bottom lash line.

10. Line your eyes with a brown shadow followed with a brown gel liner. For the liner I simply followed the line of my eye and extended it out without winging it. I then joined the end tip in a straight line with my lower lashline. It’s a popular korean way of doing eyeliner. Use the remaining brown shadow to fill in your brows!

 Image

 

11. Contour and blush~

Image

12. Highlight on the nose bridge, c-zones, t-zone, forehead, cupids bow and chin. I applied a bit more this time because I wanted to look more dewy and shiny…LOL

13. Curl them lashes and apply mascara~

14. Finish off with a cute pink lipstick!

Image

Enjoy and take care~ xx

Chanel 2013 Summer Haute Couture Inspired Makeup! [Photo Heavy]

Finally, a change of face! A friend of mine suggested me to do a look similar to that of the Chanel’s latest summer haute couture. Challenge accepted. Although I think I should’ve spent more time to model this look to be more finite but I leapt straight to doing the look when I was over at a close friend’s house. It’s been one of the more challenging looks that I’ve done but I had a lot of fun and quite a headache!!! Here’s what I came up with ^^:

Image

What I used:

Image

 

Image

 Face: Lioele Secret HD Powder, Lace, Felt (create a natural organic design to go on the undereye area!), Etude House Shading Corset in #5, MAC blusher in Supernova, Smashbox photo finish primer, Tony Moly Shimmer cube in brown, Gorgeous base perfect liquid foundation in 1Y-BP, You also need your fav pair of lashes~

 Image

Eye shadows: Gorgeous essential shades palette, Jill Stuart palette in 09 Mandarin citrine.

Image

Other: TooFaced shadow insurance, Lancome mascara in Hypnose, HUB Makeup mascara in Superlash black, DUO eyelash adhesive, Stila waterproof eyeliner in Stingray, MAC lash curler.

STEPS!!! 

Image

 1. Start off with a clean face. Apply your face primer and conceal any blemishes with a concealer brush.

2. Using a foundation brush, apply a matte foundation to the skin. We’re not going for a dewy look today because the look is very organic with a touch of dark and venetian element. [You may also decide to only apply the foundation on the eye area first and then apply foundation to the rest of the face after applying the eye makeup because it may get messy if you’re not used to the product you’re using ^~^]

3. Apply the eye primer all over the lids and the undereye area to secure the black shadows later.

 Image

4. [Now i’ve actually finished one side of the eyes before doing the other so you can see how I get the final result.] Using a cream liner, fill out the entire lid as shown.

5. Use a matte black, pat it over the cream base and repeat using a shimmery black. Blend out any harsh edges with a precision blending brush so it doesn’t get too messy.

6. Take the cream liner again and line your eyes. Bring the liner down to your bottom lashline thickly like so. Don’t worry if it’s messy, we’re going to blend it out right after!

 Image

 

7. So take a short flat shading brush and run the matte black shadow over the cream bottom line you just made and blend it out with the top shadow.

8. Next, use a clean bullet brush and apply it to the inner corner of your eyes.

9. Use the precision shadow again, with the TINIEST amount of shimmery black, blend out the white slightly.

 Image

 

10. Using a medium sized shader, apply a shimmery dark brown shadow to the eye sockets so that it softens the black.

11. Now for the fun/ trickier part. Take the lace design that you had prepared. Place the lace on the outer areas of the eye and take the matte shadow and apply it carefully over the lace to create the delicate design. Continue this step until you are satisfied with the amount of lace pattern on the face.

 Image

 

12. Afterwards, take the lovely design cutout that was prepared earlier and apply lashglue and paste it over the lace design. Make sure the lace design still peeps through!

 Image

 

13. Slim and bring out the cheek bones by contouring the hollows of your cheeks and jawline~

14. Apply a dusty rose blush.

15. Highlight the high points of your face. Nose, cheeks, chin, forehead.

16. Contour the nose!

Image

 17. Fill in the brows. Make sure they’re thick and defined.

18. Apply the falsies and a matte lip ❤

Here’s the final look:

Hope you guys enjoyed the look! A massive big shout out and thanks to my friend Chiizu for letting me photograph experiment on her face! xx

Everyday Ulzzang Natural Makeup!

Image

Ok omg i’m so sorry for the low res pics but i’m in a hurry and i’ve only got 10 minutes LOL! This is a step by step tutorial on an Ulzzang makeup I got inspired by reading one of ulzzang Pony’s tutorials. I’m not sure if you can get the book in english coz my friend lent it to me and it’s in chinese. But anyway…

Each frame is 1 step and let me know if i’m not clear enough! I’ll upload the description for the products i’ve used later.

Image

1. Put on your fav lenses!

2. Use a base. Here i’m using a green cream base to even out my redness and dry skin.

3. Conceal your blemishes! for the eyebags, i like to fill out the hollows rather than cake-ing over the entire eyebags. It looks more natural this way and less cakey and it actually looks like you have less eyebags in the end! And blend it out with a concealer brush.

4. Continue on with your bb cream. Unfortunately i forgot to take a pic. But i blended it out with a beauty sponge for a better spread and it looks- once again more natural and less cakey. Less is more!

Image

5. Set the face with your fav powder with a big fluffy brush- patting it over gently. Don’t rub it over your face coz its gonna damage your skin and make all that effort of putting on bb cream pointless.

6. Pat over your eyelids gently with a primer.

7. Now take the creamy white…

Image

8. …and pat it all over your eyelids. It’ll make the pink stand out a little bit more.

9. Then take the pastel pink and pat that over the entire lid too! Bring this down to line your lower lash line!

10. Taking the dark choco colour with a fluffy brush, and buff that into your outer v and crease.

Image

11. Take the yellow caramel and line the inner half of your lower lash line.

12. Line your eyes with your fav eye pencil! (I’m using an eye pencil coz it makes the look a lot softer. You may choose to use liquid or cream gels if you wish!)

13. So the look should look like this… at this stage…

15. Now curl n prep those eyelashes and add that mascara!

Image

16. Fill in your brows.

17. And contour! cheek bones and don’t forget your nose! If you have a flat face like me, a little tip is to contour into the little socket right under the brows to give it more definition!

Image

18. Take your fav blush~ and smother it over the apples of your cheeks ~_~

19. Conceal your lips.

20. Put on your fav lip gloss and you’re done! Muahhhhh~

Anyway i really gotta jet but yeah description for products will be posted when i’m home! Hope you had fun and all the best!
