So I was waiting to blog about this since I’ve been tagged by the wonderful Sherly Stephanie @ http://blamethestore.wordpress.com. :D! I was a bit confused as to what this is but it’s an award that gets passed around by bloggers recommending other bloggers! I think it’s pretty neat how we can support each other in this!!! YAyYy!

Question Response to Blame The Store:

 

  • Do you love Korean artists? If yes, name your favourite one. If no, name your favourite artist and where he/she/they come(s) from.

– Yep! SURE DO!!!! CN BLUEEEEE CAN’T WAITTT TO GO SEE THEM SOON!!! Brian Joo, Shinhwa, SJ, Block B, SNSD, SS501… List goes on.. 

  • Do you have a collection of something(s)? If yes, name your collection(s).

– Snoopy plushies from Maccaas… LOL >_<, does makeup count?

  • If you have to go to a high end mall in the weekend with your boyfriend, what will your outfit look like?

– Oh wow umm since i’m single… eating pants and a loose tee. LOL JOKES. I think i’ve some obsession over mixing something fancy/ street wear together there’s something about it that just looks so great, approachable but not overdone at the same time. So maybe an awesome kickass cap or beanie with a classy dress, cardi and sporty heels.

  • What do you think about beauty boxes? Name your favourite one.

-I’ve never signed up to a beauty box before but now that you ask I really should!!! I really like Ipsy and Glossy Box. Ipsy is pretty affordable and curated by lots of our youtube celebs that we all love. They recommend affordable stuff for the general public. I really like Glossy Box because of the variety and range of products they’re associated with. Apparently they give away some asian branded products as well which is a nice change. Its a bit pricier but the packaging is fantastic!!!

  • What’s your favourite snack?

-Hmm I don’t really snack but I like Mocchi and hot food xD

  • Which one do you prefer, online shopping or offline shopping? Why?

-Online shopping because i’m a bit of an introvert… lolol!!!! Nah, it’s just there’s not that many awesome+ affordable shops around sydney… And if you’re shopping in Hong Kong, the clerks try and recommend you almost everything that you feel a bit intimidated. That’s something I don’t like the feeling of -having someone glaring at me while i’m just looking around. I like shopping in peace! Though it’s not always awesome when you can’t try the fitting or see the material of the clothes you’re buying : <!

  • Tell me 3 of your favourite music.

– I like Christian songs, Pop and melodic Vkei.~ 😀

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!

Enjoy and take care~ xx

Kpop- 2NE1 Park Bom Inspi. Eye Makeup tutorial!

Hello everyone! How’s it going? Today I bought a sweater which reminded me of korean pop culture… and naturally I was wondering what sort of look would look super awesome- wearable but also out there! So I quickly browsed through my stash of makeup photos and found 2Ne1’s eye makeup… and really liked Bom’s super liner.

Image

I’ve tweaked the colour a bit for my look and went ahead with a Neon yellow to match my sweater :3 Below is the final look and in case you were wondering about my eyes later on and why they’re different colours, I edited the sauce out of the browns with a teal hahah~

Image

 

So let’s get started~

Image

1. As usual, start off with a nice’n’lovely clean face. Apply your moisturiser, primer, concealer and bb cream/ cc cream/ foundation. Make sure its slightly lighter than your skin colour…coz korean k-popstars have really pale skin! Today I used cc cream :] I’m still seeing if it will have any effect on my skin over the next few days so stay tuned for the review!

2. Prime the entire eyelids and under eye area!

3. Apply with a light hand, a matte white eye shadow over your entire lid.

4. Take a taupe and buff it into the hollows of your eye sockets and outer v. For people with a flat face shape like me or zero eye hollows this will really make a huge difference! It’ll define your eyes and give it more dimension! 

Image

5. Moving on to the eyes, use a bit of scotch tape and tape it diagonally to how angled you want your super flick to be.

6. Start lining! First extend a gel liner with an angled brush to however long you want the liner to be.

7. From the tip of the liner, connect it with a straight line all the way down to your tearducts. Also~ Make a tip at your tearducts~ Remove the tape.

8. And line your whole water line~ then patch up the areas where you need to re-apply foundation etc.

Image

9. Because I actually didn’t think my gel liner was dark enough I went over with a crayon liner and then sharpened the edges with a liquid liner. What to do from now, take a coloured liquid liner (and if you don’t have one, a coloured eye liner or any really pigmented eyeshadow will do) dab a fine line right below the liner!

10. So.. you’ll end up with a little something like this after completing both sides. Clean up any messy bits with a Q-tip and liquid liner.

11. Bom has really big double eyelids so for this look I had to make mine bigger as well using eye glue. You can use tape if you wish but… I prefer glue 🙂 works better for my eyes~ Create a ‘pod’ like shape with the glue and let it dry.

12. And create your double eyelids!

Image

13. See the massive difference after the eyelid glue!??!?! KSJHDKH HUAHUAHAHAHAH. >: D

14. Almost done! Now, fill in your brows, curl lashes and mascara!

15. Contour and apply blush/ highlighting. *this is probably more important than the eyelids hahah. Contouring and highlighting make such a huge difference in doing your makeup. I’ve learnt to really make my flat nose look like a non-flat nose and to make my baby fat cheeks look a lot slimmer with this step :] Perhaps I should do a tutorial on that as well? Let me know!!! xD

16. Apply falsies and finish off with a baby pink lip! ❤
