Colorful Eye Makeup Tutorial: Asians Can Rock Multi-Color Eye Makeup Looks Too!

It’s a good thing I always write down, somewhere, the products used for makeup looks. I knew I would be less shy to put up more makeup looks one day. Yup, I have trouble with putting pictures of myself up on my own blog. I’m shy.It’s just so weird seeing photos of myself on my blog, even though I have thousands of them on facebook. Maybe it’s because in those photos, I’m not smiling by myself into the camera, or taking close-up shots of my eye/brow/cheek/lip.Besides, it’s so much harder to take photos of oneself! There’s always something wrong – stray strands of hair falling over the eyebrow, some fleck of dust sitting on the cheek, a tiny crumble of biscuit on the lip. For every photo selected, I have just about 20 variations of that, maybe tilting one degree to the left, or twelve degrees to the right. Gah!I think I just have to get used to it.So let’s start with a colorful look I did some time ago, when I still had my curly hair (gawd, looking at these photos make me miss them so much!).

You will need the following:

Face:Face Primer – Monistat Chafing Relief Powder-GelFoundation – Stage Cosmetics Photo Pro Foundation (02 Take 1 and 03 Take 2)Concealer – Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer (Light Golden)Cheeks:Contouring Powder – MAC Gold-Go-Lightly Studio Careblend Pressed Powder Blush – NARS Orgasm BlushHighlighter – MAC Beauty Powder Too Chic(more…)

Stage Cosmetics Photo Pro Foundation Review | Foundation For Glowing Skin

The Stage Cosmetics Picture Perfect Foundation had “Cleo Award Winner” stickers on them, while the Photo Pro Foundation had none. I asked the very unapproachable SA for help but she kept going back to playing Angry Birds on her iPhone behind the cashier counter every time after I asked her a question. I have higher tolerance for sales assistants at crazy sales, like the Stage Cosmetics Moving Out Sale.The difference between the 2 liquid foundations is actually the amount of coverage. The Picture Perfect Foundation gives less coverage while the Photo Pro Foundation provides more. I’m not one who goes for anything less than medium coverage – I don’t get the point of tinted moisturizers – so the option was clear.They were selling at 2 for S$19. Gotta grab some! But I didn’t understand their weird numbering system.02 Take 103 Take 2… and so on.(more…)
