Hey Everyone!

With so many varieties of foundation, it’s hard not to scratch your head at the shelves when you’re looking for one that’s suitable for your skin. So here’s a guide to the different types of foundation – their consistencies, the best way to apply them, and also what skin type they’re most suited for. Hopefully, these tips will clear the air.

1. Liquid Foundation 

Description: Liquid foundation is probably the most common type of foundation out there. It usually comes in screw top or pump bottles and are usually in the consistency of sauce or syrup, not to say that they are suitable for consumption, ever. Most liquid foundations also can vary in consistency, whether thicker and lighter, which can give hints as to their coverage, how long they will last and how good it will feel on the skin. To be honest, liquid foundations for me have the most natural and flawless finish (obviously will depend on the type of foundation used). Just because a liquid foundation is more “liquidy” doesn’t mean that it has less coverage (from experience).

Little do we know, there’s a bunch of awesome tools online that can help us explore more about make-up besides catching up on your favorite blogs and youtube channels. Here’s a list of my favorite make-up related websites that not only can show you what make-up works best for you, but also how to get that shade you need even before walking into a store (and even in the comfort of your own home).

1. Makeupbee (http://www.makeupbee.com

Makeupbee is something a little new. It was first introduced to me by a good friend in it’s early stages but it has grown into a whole (and pretty awesome) makeup community. If you hate clicking multiple links just to look at really cool makeup looks created by people just like you and me, then you will love makeupbee. On makeupbee, you can create a profile, upload the looks that you’ve done yourself, put up the products you used in the look, and share it with the rest of the makeup bees in the community. You can comment and like other looks and if you like a certain look in particular you can see just what products they used.

Hey Everyone!

The world of beauty can be a little crazy. Sometimes, it goes beyond crazy rainbow lashes from Shu Uemura or sci-fi theater effects into current trends like these which I found quite interesting to share. I don’t suggest you wear these out because you’ll probably gain more than a few weird stares but if you’re like Lady Gaga, maybe you won’t mind at all.

1. Paperlife Eyelashes

This is taking fake lashes to the next level. I saw these babies at Sephora in Singapore and wondered when I could ever wear them. They might even be equivalent to those sneaky heels you bought this weekend that you know you can’t wear out because they’re too high, but because they looked hot on you at the store, you decided to buy them anyway. I’m not sure what to say about these lashes to be honest. All I can say is that it would be funny if it rained.

Hey Everyone!

Merry Christmas! While Santa is devising a way to stuff his way through your chimney tonight and scrummy christmas puddings and sugar plums are being made, I thought one way to add to the Christmas cheer would be to give you something you could do for an upcoming christmas party or dinner. Whether it’s a company occasion or a family affair, looking party ready all night can be difficult but here are my top 5 few tips to help your make-up stay longer and your Christmas a little sweeter this holiday season.

1. Stock up on Primers

Face and eye primers are equally important if you’d like your make-up to stay. Face primers help your foundation and make-up to go on easy and thus help your make-up to stay longer. If you’re going to a party and want to go heavy duty, try the Smashbox photofinish primer but if you think you’re going to be running around chasing your kids during a family affair, choose a lighter wearing primer like the RMK make-up base or the Rimmel primer. Plus, your eye-makeup will love you for wearing a good eye primer like the Urban Decay Primer Potion. It can do wonders for making the colors pop and to stay throughout the night. I use it every time I put on eye-shadow, wouldn’t know where I’d be without one. To find out all you need to know about primers, check this out here.

Hey Everyone,

There are many times when I’m walking down the street and I notice a beautiful girl. Eye-make-up down wonderfully, blush applied perfectly, foundation is flawless until I see her lips and they are either basically erased or filled up with an unflattering color. I think lipsticks should only be worn if they flatter you – the right lipstick shade will be able to give you almost a face lift, enhancing your skin tone and making your eyes look brighter. I have to be honest with you, I’m not a fan of nude lips at all. I just don’t see the point of erasing your beautiful lips. So here are my top 5 tips to finding the most flattering shade for you.

Hey Everyone!

We’ve all been there. At the end of a long day at uni, or work, we either have a bad case of the oilies or our blush or lipstick has now faded. Even better, a hot date is waiting for us tonight and there is just no way that we can beat the rush hour and head home first. Thus, there’s always a reason to bring along a few make-up items in a small pouch in case of any hot mess emergencies. I thought it would be fun to open up my little make-up emergency kit and show you my top tips and items to touching your make-up throughout the day!

It’s pretty packed in here, but seriously for good reason. The key is to find products that multi-task and don’t need additional tools.
