over time i've collected 3 blue eyeshadow palettes.
it took me some time to figure out how to wear it for daytime purpose without scaring the crap out of people.
"did she just come from the circus?" i wouldn't wanna illicit this kind of response!

this is how i wear blue eyeshadow in the day,
i think the main point is to use the darker shades of blue only as an accent and not the main colour you'd apply all over your lid.
also, i did away with lining my lower lash line with the blue to keep the look light and summery (instead i lined it lightly with a matte brown colour just to fake the luscious lashes look).

got some help from my friend in giving this look a name, since i can't think of anything edible that is blue and metallic.

oh my gosh, i'm finally back into making videos!
my first makeup video this year!


this is just a simple variation one of the looks i've published earlier, M.U.D. #3,
except that i used a black liner instead of the brown liner.
also, i used an orange blush instead of the pink blush!
so i'm calling this M.U.D. #3V, V stands for variation :P

my first ever whitening product in my skincare routine!
i decided to buy this after reading good reviews on both and (japanese and taiwanese beauty review portals!).

finally got around to making a dedicated blogskin for this place.
i just can't stand the previous one, it didn't look bad but it's not personal at all!

hope anyone who drops by this place will like the new look too :)
i spent 3 days putting everything together!
:D for a coding noob i think i did good enough!
had to take a lot of work-arounds to make things turn out the way i wanted.

geo cm 903 world green
having worn the world grey previously, i laid my hands on something more adventurous this time..
it's the world green, also known as CM-903.

i first saw it on the angelcolor website, aya was sporting it and it looked so good on her,
the green doesn't seem over powering, from the photo i thought it looked quite natural (as in it blends well with the face, unlike the nudy lens).

it took me a while to figure out how to rock this pair of lens though,
the first time i wore it i felt so weird because i didn't pair it with the right make up look.
took some trail and error but i think i've found the perfect combination.

this is a slight variation from the peachy smoothie look,
it's along the same idea - using lip/face products for the eyes,
but this time round i did away with the lipstick+concealer blend on the eyes and went straight with just the blush alone.
what i got was a very soft look that i wore behind my spectacles.

it's such an easy look, i got it done in record time since i'm only working with 1 colour.

this look was originally named "safest brown" because it really is my go-to makeup whenever i need to play safe.
brown eyeshadow + brown eyeliner, the safest combo known to mankind.

peachy smoothie

i get a little uncreative with names, whatever that comes into my mind are all related to food.
HEHEHE that's because i'm a glutton. a major glutton.

below i'll share the look with both the black and brown liner. there's a different feel to it!

MakeUpDiary M.U.D. #1 DUSTY PINK

another series i'm starting so that i can keep track of the make up looks i'm doing!
i find myself looking back at my photos and wonder how i did that particular look. blame my bad memory!!!
so this is actually a good way for me to document it so i can easily recreate it if i feel like it.

this is slightly different from the GetTheLook series.
that series is done with a reference makeup look in mind.
M.U.D. is to purely document the looks and products used.

i named this look dusty pink because it's a mixture of pink and grey, the perfect colour combination in my opinon :P
this particular entry will focus more on the eyes and face only.

because of the way i winged my eyeliner, it gave me such a kitty cat look, i thought that the pink color softened the otherwise strong eyeliner look, making me look like a cute kitty instead of a cool (and unapproachable) kitty.

MEOW. hope you like the look.

geo hc 104 hurricane brown
FINALLY, i'm getting back to writing about contact lenses, circle lens in particular.
this time it's the GEO HC-104, better known as the hurricane brown (or hurricane hazel? i might have remembered wrongly)
mine came with prescription.

i decided i'm not going to do full length reviews on contact lenses anymore,
instead, i'm going to share with you how it looks like and the makeup looks that I wear with the lens.
moreover, these lenses are NOT meant to be worn for more than 8 hours a day, i kept to the advise and didn't have any problems.
the occasional dry eyes when i'm a dry environment is relieved by eye drops.

原宿病容妝 harajuku "sickly" make.

GTL stands for Get The Look, it'll help me remember what products i used to achieve a certain look!
(yes i'm forgetful like that..! sometimes i look back at my past photos and wonder how i got that look..)
i want to try a new type of "make up tutorial", the apostrophe is there because it's not really a tutorial.
it merely serves as a reference for you and i!

more details under the cut.

i'm slowly preparing my things so that i can get back into blogging once again.
i've always been blogging, just that it's for another purpose.
after a 2+ years hiatus, i'm happy to say i'm finally coming back to this world which i've missed so dearly.

i really want to share with you some of the new make up items and techniques i've explored while i was away!

in the mean time, i shall end this short post with a recent photo of me.
i must say i look quite different after 2 years!

i've been told i look more mature now, which isn't exactly the kind of look i'm going for, but i'm also glad to know that i'm able to pull off different looks. :)
