Sephora's In The Glow

For my Christmas gift... I got the Sephora's In the Glow box!!! It's a sampler of bronzers, highlighters and blushes from different cult brands! I love all of them!!! 

This was a super late post already...i will swatch them in my next post okay... 

VDL Foundation and CC cream

Hi! It's been soooo long since I last posted here... I'm hoping to post more stuff here in the future, a lot of backlogs actually... 😊

I have a new discovery! It's called VDL foundation and CC cream! I've tried them  on (of course on separate occassionπŸ˜„) and they're both great on my skin. 
The CC cream applies on smoothly, it has a lght scent (which I'm very particular since I have allergic rhinitis...) It looks like your skin but better...

The store gave me samples which was really great so that at least consumers can try the products on first before buying the whole bottle to make sure that it suits their skin. Okay I will post a separate one for the foundation and primer... I am just on the road now (but I'm not driving! My husband is.. 😜) 
See you later!!!

Spring Trend 2014


Orange Lips and Tips

Bright, almost neon shades of orange will be the go-to hue for spring. Backstage at DKNY, Maybelline New York's Color Sensational Vivids Lipcolor in Electric Orange was applied to models' lips, then blotted for a matte, almost stained finish. Brows were groomed and shaped using the brand's Master Shape Brow Pencil. The rest of the face was left bare. "A flawless complexion is the perfect canvas for standout lips and clothes that steal the show," said makeup artist Charlotte Willer.

At SUNO, it was all about an electric pop of citrus on the nails. Models wore Maybelline New York's Color Show Nail Lacquer in Orange Fix, a bright tangerine shade. Backstage at Mara Hoffman, the same vivid hue was used to create a spectrum design on models' nails.

White Eyes

Backstage at Tibi, white eyes stole the show. Makeup artist Alice Lane used an angled shadow brush to draw Color Tattoo Cream Gel Shadow in Too Cool in a smooth, straight line across the upper lashline and out toward the temples. The shimmery white shade was also applied to the inner corners of the eyes, for an ethereal, fairy-esque look.

Nudes Nails

A major departure from the over-the-top nail art looks that have dominated recent seasons, the new nude nail is about an easy-glamour feel that is both fresh and modern. Models at Rachel Zoe wore Maybelline New York's Color Show Nail Lacquer in limited edition Lust for Buff, a gorgeous neutral hue that was hand-chosen for the show by Zoe herself. The universally flattering shade will be available for a limited time, beginning inMarch 2014.      

Metallic Sheen

Metallic makeup is nothing new, but the look is refreshed with luminosity and lightened up for spring. These metallic touches are the "accessory" to an otherwise clean beauty look. At the Wes Gordon Show, makeup artist Alice Lane used Color Tattoo Pure Pigments in Breaking Bronze to add a sheer wash of copper to models' eyelids. At Mara Hoffman, Lane used her fingertip to apply Color Tattoo Pure Pigments in Pink Rebel,swiping it onto models just before they hit the runway, as a glamorous finishing touch.

No Fuss Makeup

Backstage at the SUNO and Wes Gordon shows, makeup artist Alice Lane played with texture and gloss. She used Baby Lips Lip Balm in Quenched on models' eyelids to add a luminous, light-catching glow. Lane used the term "fresh grunge" to describe the no fuss makeup look. "There's a nod to grunge in that everything is slightly undone and nothing's too perfect. But it's cleaner and more wearable, for a sophisticated woman," she said.

I can't wait to try the orange lips and tips!  πŸ˜„

Starting Over Again...

No this is not about Natalie Cole's song and it's not all about beauty either. Although my blog is about beauty and style. This is about me and a little but about my life. I just want to share this with you because you might learn a thing or two or you may want to drop me head first from on top of a high building....
Anyway I have the typical got married early story so nothing new there... I am an undergrad of Dentistry, my friends say I'm very talented because I sing, dance, act and I can perform all of it on stage. I am the typical "Jill of all trades."
I am an organized person who doesn't like routines ( 'cause it's boring!) but I realized how important routines are now that I'm a mom. 
I always have setbacks in my life, made the wrong turn, stumbled and all that but I never gave up no matter how much I wanted to. I wanted a lot of things but I never really appreciate what I have and some of those things, I then eventually acquire because of positive thinking I guess, or wanting it too badly! Also because of my husband! 😊
Whenever I have setbacks or difficulties, I always blame others. They maybe the reason, the one who triggered it or did something to make me feel disappointed.
For some reason I envy a lot of successful mothers... I know they have a lot going on in their lives and it's not perfect but they're syccessful both financially and in their family lfe. 
I don't have a career nor a formal business... I am not even that fit mom compared to others. But I guess that's the challenge?! I have a few setbacks and it stopped me from growing, unfortunately time doesn't stop... It won't wait for you to get back on your feet. 
I saw Brooke Burke's interview today and I was half inspired, half enviious and half disappointed of myself. Well simply because I am not even 1/4 of her... So I hope I will be able make all of my dreams come true this year! 😊

I haven't tried all the "Primers" in the makeup world but so far I have found some that are wonderful and great for my skin. They're a bit expensive for everyday use but they're worth it. First one is Shu Uemura UV Underbase Mousse in Pink.

It's really great for the skin alone! Makes your skin look fresh, dewey and bright. With foundation, of course makes your foundation (even the cheapest ones!) last longer. Even just plain powder on top if you're a bit oily. 
The second one and the one I usually use when the weather is really weird. When it's sunny then in a few hours it's going to rain! 

MAC Prep + Prime really does it's job. Although one thing I don't like about it is its consistency, it's a bit runny, the product and the liquid is separated but it's a great product.

Aerin Beauty

I came across this brand Aerin a couple if days ago and I even posted it on my instagram.. I got curious not just because of their wonderful colours, but it's my youngest daughter's second name.
I searched it on the internet and true enough it's Aerin Lauder's make up line! I am so excited to get some for myself! It would really be interesting!
