No Makeup Makeup for Natural Brown Eyes

Hey everyone!
I haven't been without my coloured contact lenses for so long! And finally, I've decided to create a look with  only my NATURAL eyes =) No coloured contacts, no eye enhancements whatesoever =)(except for false lashes) And this look is SUPER easy too! I've only used one eye shadow colour for my eyes

Nails of The Day: Crystal Gradient Nails

I have done (tried and attempted) to do 3 different kind of nail designs before this one, and unfortunately, it kind of turned out really ugly because of my unsteady hands and ofcourse my nails being really short lately. So finally, after getting a few inspirations from ViVi magazine, I came up with this simple design.

Step 1:

With any sparkly white nail varnish, apply 1-3 coats of it, depending on how transparent your nail varnish is. Apply until opaque and let dry. I used the Sephora kind (I forgot the name)

Step 2.

With any pink Polish (I used a no name from that I got from Anime North lol), first apply a thin coat 1/2 way down the nail, then 1/3 of the way, and etc. until you get to the tip. This way, you are gradually building colour towards the tip of the nail.

Step 3.

Finally With a brush on nail glue, I used Nailene brand. You can use a clear nail polish instead, but I find using this dries faster and the crystals will stick on better. Use 2 crystals and stick them on the middle of the nail on the bottom as shown. Finish with a top coat if you desire.

You're done =)

Nails of the Day: Royal White

Usually, I wouldn't do my nails if they are short, but since its just the starting of the term and I figured I might as well be creative with nails before the term progresses and I get busy and won't have any time to make any blog posts, I figured, why not?

Step 1:
Use a pink nude sheer colour and add 1-2 coats of polish. Let dry, I used Sally Hansen Salon Manicure - Camella

Step 2: Using the nail guard sticker, place it near the cuticles of your nail

Step 3. Use white nail polish to paint the "tips" I used OPI

Step 4. Use the crown nail decals and place where the white polish meets the pink nude one

Step 4. Add a silver gem to the middle of the brown. Add a top coat, I used OPI - Original Nail Envy which results in an amazing shine

And repeat this for all nails and you're done =)

Skin 79 White Reviving Skin Radiance Solution

Skin79 is one of my favourite BBcream brands so far, and 1 month and a half ago, I was browsing online for Korean cosmetics, I came across this bottle of whitening serum on sale:

Sorry for the dark picture, but the whitening serum came in a box(to which I threw out) and in this attractive bottle like this.

So this is what it claims on the back of the bottle:
"Highly concentrated whitening solution containing Flora-WH, Niacinamide, which prevents pigment deposits, brings brightness to the skin from the inside.

Directions: After using softener, evenly spread a moderate amount on entire face and allow to absorb"

I have been using this serum for over a month now, and I absolutely love it! I can already see the whitening difference (even though on the camera, it shows up as my face more whiter than the rest of my body, LOL).

After rubbing it into the skin, the serum leaves a freshly scent like you just took a shower. Moreover, there is a slight cooling sensation that lasts for a few minutes. I have added this serum into my daily morning routine. Sometimes, I also use this instead of a moisture and it really does the job =D

Janice Man Inspired Makeup Tutorial

Cheers to the New Years everyone! Today is my first day of class =_= (back to schoo, back to the same routine). Before heading back to school for another term, I decided to create another makeup look inspired by the celebrity Janice Man( 文咏珊), much like Angelababy, she, too had surgery, but nevertheless, she's still gorgeous. This look  is perfect for clubbing as well or for any special events
