Hey Everyone!

I can’t believe the summer is already over and now we’re approaching fall and autumn. Here in Singapore, we might not be able to pack on our chilly weather clothes, but we sure can have fun changing our make-up. I’ve had a lot of requests lately on doing “one-brand” make-up tutorials. I can’t think of a brand that exudes fall and autumn more than Anna Sui. I love how all their products smell like rose and the packaging is always a plus!

For the make-up tutorial, I’ve decided to do a purple x orange mix. It’s a weird mix but it reminds me of the many colours Autumn leaves have. It’s not too over the top at all and great for a dinner out or a special event.

Here’s the scene. It’s 6 am in the morning and you have a hot date tonight after work. You’re not sure if the smokey eye you wanna wear for tonight is “work-appropriate” so you’re scrambling to gather your make-up in a bag so you can somehow transform your day look into more sultry make-up sure to impress your date. Do you take everything off after work and start over? Well Girls, I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to. Here’s how you can transform your day make-up into night look. Truth be told,  I love make-up that has many uses and that’s probably why I love using eye-shadow palettes so much more than single shadows. Even better, one that has shadows for day and night so you can carry it around.

Happy Saturday! I woke up this morning and decided to do a tutorial and since I hauled the Shu Uemura Eye-Conic Collection a few posts ago, I thought why not give them a whirl. I picked the Yellow Trio and Pink Blush Duo to play with and also incorporated it with my Shu Uemura Lasting Soft Gel Pencil that is in need of an urgent review soon. I love it so much. I’ve heard a lot about Shu Uemura eye-shadows – they’re pigmented, soft and can create that duo tone look and to be honest, it fulfilled every expectation.  I created a soft smokey eye that’s great for the weekend or lunch out with your gal pals and paired it with soft pink cheeks and lips.

So here I am stuck in bed, feeling a bit unwell. I decided to finally check off my first attempt at any kind of nail art and hey, I’m actually pretty proud of myself! I decided to do soft pastel roses. Well, it turned out that way anyway. Truth be told, I kinda wanted to do something geometric until I put a giant blob on my thumb nail and decided that it was more round than square. I guess magic things happen when you make mistakes.

I’m not good at using toothpicks, so instead I rummaged for an “in-package” brush. I took this one out of my bobbi brown palette since I end up losing or throwing them away anyway. It was a good find since it’s a synthetic and a seriously flat paddle brush which was perfect. I used three colors – a pastel pink or China Glaze “Something Sweet”, a pastel purple like Kit Cosmetics “Free Fall” and a mint green like Essie “Turquoise & Caicos”.

I’m sure us ladies are always on the hunt for that perfect lip gloss. One that isn’t sticky, doesn’t clump at the end of the day one that can make our lips that much juicer. Well ladies, I have your answer – it’s the Shu Uemura Gloss Unlimited Lip glosses. I have been trying these out for a while and I have fallen in love with them. They aren’t sticky, are really hydrating in fact and come in so many colors, you can probably have one for every outfit! In this post, I’ll be doing a review, tutorial on trendy lip gloss looks as seen on Spring runways, showing you some of my personal favourites and ending with a giveaway of one of them!

Laura Mercier’s Spring Collection is inspired interestingly enough not by candy in a jar or flowers, but by ballet and yoga. In fact, the Spring 2013 collection is called Arabesque and only a few strokes can create a gentle spring look. Laura Mercier invited me down to their counter at TANGS Orchard to preview their collection and get a make-over with Global Make-Up Artist, Benjamin Ruiz. I couldn’t resist.

Laura Mercier is a somewhat new addition to Singapore. Previously, they were only available at a shop called True Colors in Takashimaya although I’ve long since heard of the brand when beauty gurus raved about it their oil free tinted moisturiser and primer online. It was also available in Melbourne at Myer. It was a pleasure having Benjamin Ruiz do my make-up and give me a few tips here and there. He’s been in the make-up industry for 17 years and worked with Laura herself to create Laura Mercier.
