Hey Everyone!

Here’s a great mask that I used tons when I had exams last semester and one that I’ve recently re-discovered again. As you know, LUSH has a variety of masks available that treat various ailments like acne and dry skin but I tend to look for masks that do a bit of detox work after full week with makeup on. During that time I was in the middle of studying for exams. Think lots of junk food and late nights with my regular make-up routines on and in full swing. The Lush sales assistant suggested I use the Brazened Honey face mask to detoxify and exfoliate the damage I was causing from the late nights and possibly clogged pores so I bought this and it has to be one of my favourites from the LUSH mask range. Here’s my review of the LUSH Braznened Honey Face Mask.

Hey Everyone!

If you take two lipsticks and two different people, you’ll have four different looks, not two. Why? Because makeup looks different on different people.

Today, I’ve grabbed one of my best friends, Danielle, to show you what I mean. We decided well not really decided, it was sort of on a whim, like all the things we do, and we thought it would be cool to reach out of our comfort zones to try on different lipsticks. Although we are pretty similiar people except I think she’s more of a social butterfly than I am, you’ll notice that she’s a cooler tone and her lips are totally different from mine. We’ll take the same lipstick and switch it up to compare nude versus bold lips.

Hey Everyone!

I just wanted to tell everyone that Illamasqua is now available in Melbourne, Australia! Illamasqua is known for their beautiful blushes, and pigmented shadows. The whole brand carries a dark, theatircal and mystical aura, even down to its slogan “Make-up for your alter ego”. From the website, Illamasqua states that it’s roots are from a dark 1920s club scene with a heavy emphasis on make-up for film and theater. Dramatic, emotional, dark, bold, Illamssqua emobodies all of these traits to create a very seductive and mysterious brand.

You can now find Illamasqua at Myer! Myer is the department store equivalent in Australia to Takashimaya or TANGS in Singapore or Nordstrom in the U.S. After lunch with a friend and checking out the MAC Wonderwoman collection, we stumbled upon Illamasqua. I snapped these pictures quickly with my Blackberry because I was scared that they might see me.

Hey Everyone,

We’re all looking for that look we can wear everyday – to school, to a party or to work. It has to emphasize all the right curves, can’t look too over the top but still take a really short time to do up in the morning. So, here’s a look to solve your problemos. Little do we know that smudging your eye-liner creates a nice, sexy but sophisticated smokey eye that suits your everyday requirements. All you really need is a lighter shadow, a darker shadow, a great smudgeable liner and something to smudge it out like a q-tip or in this case a pencil brush. Hopefully this quick tutorial will help you save some time in the morning!

Hey Everyone!

I was in The Straits Times on Tuesday! If you aren’t familiar, The Straits Times is Singapore’s National Newspaper! Wow. I really never even dreamnt of something like this. I just wanted to thank everyone thus far for all the support that you’ve given me, enough to be even featured in the paper. “Are Blogs Now Brands?” by Jonathan Holburt identifies that blogs are increasingly becoming a big player in media and advertising, even superceeding established print outlets. It’s a very interesting read.
