Gothic makeup Looks

Festive Look Book: Gothic Inspired Makeup Looks, and some shedding of Fears…

Hi lovely readers,

Hope you’re still reeling in the festive fever. I think I’m too, because just as much I have nothing to do with Halloween, I just had to snatch the opportunity to do this post. I prefer going easy on makeup most times, but in today’s post I have looks that we all should try, at least once in a while! It took me quite some courage to step out of my comfort zone, and create some dark looks with a dose of Gothic. But again, a few of them are subtler versions that you can categorize under fall makeup as well. For a look or two, I put my creative hat on and let Pinterest inspire me. 🙂

I won’t be elaborating a lot on the base, as there’s a lot to talk about the color cosmetics. The base makeup has the Colorbar Perfect Match Primer, L’Oreal True Match Concealer, Maybelline Fit Me foundation and The Body Shop Fresh Nude Cushion foundation. Also for all the looks I kept my brows really stark and used the darkest shade from the MUA Brow Kit. It is a dark brown that works pretty well for me.

Office festive look

Festive Look Book : Lighting up a Day at Office …

Hi everyone! I had promised a series of posts pertaining to the ongoing festive season. So many of us have a day job these days (so do I), so we do not exactly have the luxury to experiment with our looks and style most of the times. I get that feeling when I want to use the wonderful products stashed away in my vanity, yet have to wait for a suitable occasion to wear them.

However with the jubilant festivities all around, why not pick up a subtle something from your dresser and light up a mundane day at work? Use a product that you would not use on any common day, and make yourself feel special for all the hard work you do? Well of course, it is not always possible when we are running short of time. But hey, give yourself a break and with only a few minutes more, you can transform your look and feel so good about it! After all, when do you use the amazing beauty products you bought for yourself, if not during festivals?

So I have three very easy looks for you that you can wear for office. And an easy from-day-to-night look as well, for those times when you have to catch up on events straight from office. 🙂 Read more

Purple Lips & Contoured Cheeks

Purple Lips With Contoured Cheeks – Look Breakdown

Hi everyone! I have been daring myself to wear purple lips for quite some time now. 😀 When MAC released the Makeup Art Cosmetics Collection, I grabbed the Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor in Flamingo Road from Kabuki’s creations. I have been wanting to wear it ever since. Given the bold dash of color that Flamingo Road is, I decided to go little subtle for the rest of the face.

The Body Shop Fresh Nude Cushion Foundation

The Body Shop Fresh Nude Cushion Foundation – Review

Hi everyone! Today I have a product that I have been using for quite some time now. I bought it from my last visit at the TBS store. The Body Shop Fresh Nude Cushion Foundation is my first try at cushion foundations. This is mainly because the cushion foundation trend is made famous by Korean brands, and most of them are available online. So I hadn’t the heart to buy from them without swatching.

This is when TBS launched its new makeup collection with #SealedWithAKiss, under the umbrella of Jacqueline’s signature range. I have a lot of faith in TBS, so I decided to pick one cushion foundation from them. Not that they gave me a lot of shade options, but I was happy to note that one of the two (seriously? just two?) shades did blend in seamlessly on my NC 40 complexion. 🙂 So I picked up 03 Malawi Beach almost immediately. The other shade option is 04 Wanaka Honey.
