Hey Everyone!

I’m back from Penang and every now and then, I like to switch it up a bit here. That’s what “Ctrl+Alt” is for and in this edition, you get a yummy guide to Penang’s Street Food!

My parents are from Penang – which if you didn’t know – is in Malaysia. In fact, my whole ancestry basically. It’s a town that has a mix of a little modernity but more colonial history. With big black and white bungalows scattered everywhere, some of them abandoned, this was a hot spot for the British and a pit-stop for the wealthy overseas. Most parts of Georgetown, the main area, seem like time just stopped as old shop houses, signages and old town hawkers dominate the scene. It’s mostly the hokkien speaking chinese who live in Penang, sorta seems like home when everyone speaks the way you do. But just as much as it feels like home, nothing feels more like home than when I’m in Singapore.

Hey Everyone,

I remember when I Iearnt to contour, highlight and apply my blush, I knew that it would be a step I never wanted to miss. Contouring and applying that bronzer adds a certain warmth to your look while being able to slim down your features without the surgery, blush gives a healthy radiance while the highlight attracts a muted glow to the areas you want shining in the spotlight.

So, how do we go about doing this? It’s really simple actually. It’s all about the placement and finding out which areas work best for you. Remember always, to blend, blend and blend!

Hey Everyone!

Here’s a really simple look that I think is day appropriate but will add a little dimension to your eyes. I’m using the Stila Marrakesh quad quite often these days and this is one of the looks you can make from them, might do another pinkier look as well later on. I’ve also been experimenting with just using my blending brush as my only eye tool and I really like how smoothly blended the look becomes with less pigmentation that I usually wear. According to your preference, you might want to opt for a dark brown liner as well if the black seems to bold.

1. Prime your eyes - ultra important for pigmentation an d long lasting purposes.

Hey Everyone!

Wow, your discussion yesterday was amazing. I really appreciated your thoughts about the issue!

Today I’ll be doing a review of the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation. Bobbi Brown foundations are supposed to be gold so let’s see how this one holds up!

The foundation comes in a pump bottle which is convenient and doesn’t waste too much excess product. The product itself is surprisingly watery and thin, not like most foundations I’ve tried. At first pump, it seems like it wouldn’t provide any coverage, thinner than a tinted moisturiser but you’ll be surprised! The best way to use this would probably be a paddle brush if you need the coverage, if not a good clean stippling brush does a good job in blending everything together because it’s such a thin consistency.

Hey Everyone!

A while back I was sponsored by Dermalogica to do a review of their new Clean Start Line. This will be sort of a continuation post, if you need any more information about each product, then click here for my haul. A more indepth explanation of what each product is supposed to do will be listed there. Here, it’s more about what it did.

Overall, I’m one happy reviewer. I loved the line for it’s fresh and clean feel and the packaging while their fruity scents made my morning and night routine enjoyable. The effectiveness of each product was pretty good. I used this line during exams and with an average of about 4-5 hours of sleep, I should have had more blemishes. But nope, I only had one or two during that stressful period.

Hey Everyone!

It’s been a while since I made a look and with the new UD NYC Book of Shadows still at Sephora stores, I thought it would be fun to create a look with the palette for all of those people who don’t know what to do with it.

I’m probably queen of smoky eyes because that’s my favourite look so here’s one you can do for a fun girl’s night out! I suggest you view the video, it’s less than five minutes.

Smoky, with green gray and purple undertones

So if you’re really not up for videos, it doesn’t take too much

Your To-Do List:

1. Always prime if you want vivid eye-shadows. First, I put on a bit of MAC’s prep and prime eye just to create a bare canvas. Then I put the Urban Decay Primer Potion on my lids to make those shadows stay
