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.~

Steps!

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!

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.

 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!

11. Contour and blush~

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

(An optional step is to enlarge your eyelids by using eyelid glue or tape. It makes a dramatic difference to your eyes and makes the look more wearable~)

Polka dot nails and bear squishing!

Like any other day in the life of a shop-a-holic I had a quest to go out and not shop… and obviously, I failed. : <

Image

I came across these dazzling bottles at a local asian cosmetics store and couldn’t resist. If there was something you needed to know about me is that I have really shaky hands which means that when it comes down to nail art- i’d get an epic fail. BUTTTTT hallelujah! This cute set of three came with a dotting tool for $18! You could probably get it for cheaper online or overseas but from where I live- by the time you sit around waiting and paying for shipping costs for 1 item just isn’t worth it.

So here we go, my first attempt at using a dotting tool. not too bad for a beginner aye?

Image

I’d love to get some advice from you masters out there!
