Hey Everyone!

So tomorrow will be my fourth day of work and I must say I’m having a blast being an intern for an advertising firm! Dressing well is pretty important when meeting clients so here is a work-appropriate look that I’ve been doing every day.

When finding a work-appropriate look, you want to look for a look that not only suits you but isn’t too dark and dramatic. A neutral look that matches most outfits is perfect. In this post, you’ll also get a few product reviews of current products that I’m using in my everyday routine. Enjoy!

 

Step #1: After priming, use a light silver pink eye-shadow all over the lid. Use a blending brush to sweep the colour.

Hey Everyone!

It’s time again to say goodbye to another year. I must say that 2010 was utterly fantastic – it was such a pleasure to meet some of you, get to know more companies, and even try a few more drugstore products. It’s always important to have memorable moments because it’s safe to say that 2010 will never pass us by again.

But with goodbyes come new hellos and the tradition of setting up new year resolutions. What are mine? Well besides the standard eat well and lose a few pounds, I want to be more fashionable. Thus, it’s always great to have friends who know what they’re talking about when it comes to dressing well and Tammy Tew (http://distortedframes.onsugar.com), one of my good friends, for shizzle knows what she’s talking about. So, we’ve made this new years video extra special by taking you down a special lane – it may not be memory lane but it’s very stylish and well just my style.

Hey Everyone!

First off, I hope you are having a splendid Christmas Eve. If you still believe in Santa, disregard what others have to say, he’s coming. He also likes chocolate chip cookies but keep the milk low fat because he’s watching his weight.

Anyway, today I’ll be doing a review of one of my favourite products and probably one that is most misunderstood – it’s the M.A.C Prep + Prime Eye. It’s a lid concealer and one that I use daily. I might skip on the UDPP that day, but I’ll never skip on this. It’s the key to create a bare canvas upon your lids so that your eye-shadows show more true to colour and at times more vivid. Let’s explore what this baby does shall we?

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.

Check out my video if you’re too lazy to read :p

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.
