My Make Up Mistake (So Far)

Happy New Year of 2015! Welcome 2015! Welcome yet another adventure ahead! 

First post of 2015 is Mistake I've Made So Far With Makeup. 

Every girl made a mistake in make up and up until now I think I made mistakes here and there too. Since I am not using make up daily nor work in the industry, I admit doing make up does take skills. 

Salute to all makeup artist! 

Here are my beauty mistakes all in one pic... 

1. Messy eyebrow/ Too thin brows 
Naturally my brows isn't thick, it is short and shapeless. So after discovering a good eyebrow gel (Tarte Eyebrow mousse), I have a an eyebrow I can be proud of! 

2. Eyeshadow not blend enough. 

It look rather unpolished and silly on me. 

3. Eyeshadow blends too much. 

There is a case of too much blending, my eye make up looks muddy or messy. 

4. Mismatch foundation. 

Need to get match foundation with neck. enough said. It takes time to buy a foundation, make that time. It's worth it. 

That's all for now. Perhaps I will add more if I found another makeup mishap! 
Keep learning!

Hair - Ouidad's Just Save My Curls

Curly hair can be romantic, cute and wild and for natural curls like me, it is quite a bitch to tame it down or keep it not frizzy

My curls are somewhat loose curl with tight curls combo. My texture is soft and easily straighten though keep it straight is a challenge too. 

So what does Ouidad Leave - in - Conditioner, Humidity Gel and Botanical Boost can do to curls? 

Let me show you.. here are my curls after 2 days conditioning and braids and put it on a tight ponytail. It has become a loose curls somewhat wavy and tons of frizzy! 

After shampooing, deep treatment mask and after all that hassle and while your hair is damp, add Leave-In conditioner, Humidity gel to hair and put my hair on pineapple method and sleep on it. 

After I woke up, the hair will not be totally dry and I spritz it with Botanical Boost spray and let it air dry. 

How it turn out?  Taa- da! Frizz free hair and tons of curls which it made me love me curls much more than already is!  

Try it! Ouidad Curls range are definitely a must try for curly hairs!

Review- Goodal Deep Clean Pore Glacial Clay

I am excited to try Goodal WashUp Deep Clean Pore Glacial Clay since I do not feel good about my skin recently.

I found this product at Watson, Pavilion and retail at 8,90MYR each. I was drawn to this product because of its packaging and the fact that I need a mask at that time. It supposed to use it once since it is in small size, I could say a sample but I really appreciate that they produce these small size for us to try it out first. 

It has grainy texture which it is normal for Deep Cleanse wash but it also has mint/ heaty feeling to it when I put it on skin (?). Gosh, I am bad at explaining things. The feeling of heaty or minty is not too much, subtle you can put it that way. 

The result? A nice clean and fresh feeling skin. I've used twice a week now and the downside of it perhaps it might or may not made my skin welcome a zit .. a single zit. Or perhaps my skin was acting up lately so I can't confirm on that yet. I will use it this whole month and update to it if it really break my skin out. 

Overall, it is a nice mask and frankly, I am happy with the result. 

Before I forget, for those who really into Korean brands, this is a Korean brands. 

Not fancy this? Maybe other clay mask you can try at ClioClub.

Natural Look

Natural Look, I supposed.. 

I did this look based on the fact that I will try Natural Look.. I am bad at it. How hard, you ask? For me who personally love playing with a bit of color, find unappealing natural look on me.. lol.. but alas, in the name of enhancing makeup skills, I tried to do Natural look. It is not a "No makeup" makeup look because I did highlighting and contouring. 

I did take advice since I am in a relationship with makeup that blending is the key and I spend 80% of this look on blending, Eyeshadows & face.

I don't have a tutorial on this but I can walk through which color in those eyelids of mine. 

I am using Naked 3 from Urban Decay. 

1. As base, used sample size Urban Decay primer potion in Anti-Aging. 

2. Cork by MAC as transition color. 

3. Nooner on crease and blend outward. 

4. Factory on inner eye and outer
eye only. 

5. Buzz in middle of the lid. 

6. Take nooner again and blend the outer edge again til satisfactory feeling achieved. 

7. Mascara by Benefit's They're Real Mascara. 

8. Brow by Maybelline Masterbrow.  

9. Concealer on under the eye using MAC prolongwear in NW32. 

10. Face by MAC in mineralized foundation in NW42. It doesn't look like tan, is it? Lighting, folks. 

11. Highlight and contouring nose in Urban Decay Flushed and MAC. 

12. Lips by Bourjois Rouge Velvet in Nude-ist. 

The key is keep blending. Blend! Blend! Blend! 


Braid Hair Do Kinda Day

I love braid and to think I rarely do hair post is absurd! I shall do more hair tutorial because believe me if I can do it, anyone can do it. Minus some of the hair do need tons of practice and broken arms. hheheheheh... 

This is simple.. Do french braid and put hairband like I am wearing now by lovely duo Sereni and Shentel hairband.. and there you have it, a nice braid.

I am practically obsessed with Betty Hairband by Sereni & Shentel. It is one of the cheapest hairband for that brand and I love it.

Empties November

I am proud that I finally get to do this post. I am not usually finish the product efficiently but I will use the products diligently and if I found something better, I ditch others like magic.. opps.. I am not the only one.. and it is not very economical and proves that I am slightly a hoarder. 

Here are the empties:

1. Syoss professional performance treatment for  dry and coarse hair 

Soften hair and makes it manageable. Like most of the masks, I tend to change my hair mask so probably if I dont have any other choice, I'll choose this. 

2. Bioglo Deep Cleansing Mud Mask

A product under Cosway and it was great since it does not break me out and makes my skin a bit even out. 

3. Bioessence Miracle  Water

 I am not sure if it is really "Miracle" but it does keep my skin refresh after a hot day or intense workout. One of the benefit include setting the make up and make it last longer though I disagree with it since it does makes my face appear more oilier. So for now I just keep it for when I don't wear too much of make up or after workout. 

I gave a bottle to my dad and he said it keeps his skin fresh and lessen itch around his eyes. So I guess it is a good product.

Repurchasing, definitely. 

4. Ouidad Botanical Boost

A refreshing spray, they said. It will make my hair fresh, they said. I wish it was. 

I've learned not to use it everytime I want to "refresh" my curls but on a damp hair only and not to many spray as well. 

5. Thayer Cucumber Witch Hazel toner 

My all time fav. It keeps my skin fresh and less oily. It doesn't break me out. This was my 2nd bottle. Obviously will repurchase it again. 

6. Neutrogena Scrubs

I was not fond of the scrub that much since it makes my skin a bit tighter after using it. I wont be repurchasing it. I finish it by using under pit. 

Til next time!
