Shu Uemura Calligraphy: Ink Liquid Eyeliner

Ink Eyeliner.  This little thing is a beast of its own.  Personally, I had to graduate from a pencil eyeliner before being comfortable enough to use a liquid eyeliner.  One thing I love about liquid eyeliner is the flexibility of drawing a fantastic clean line, whether it be thick or thin.  Today, I’m doing a review and a look using Shu Uemura Calligraphy: ink liquid eyeliner.  Not going to lie, I bought this liquid eyeliner so I could enter the competition.

Jamie Chung Oscars 2015 Hair & Makeup

Oscars was a couple of weeks ago now.  I know, I know.. I’m slowww!!  Everyone’s got their favourite looks up now!  Better late than never!  Well, here’s my favourite look that I thought I would “copy” – Jamie Chung.  Some of you might not know her but she’s acted in a couple of tv series (Once Upon a Time), movies (Sucker Punch) and cartoons (Big Hero).  She also has her own fashion blog.  Gosh!  She does everything, doesn’t she?

Shanghai Tang Spring/Summer 2015 Fashion Show

New York Fashion Week has started!  How exciting!  To celeberate the start of New York Fashion week, I thought I would blog about something less talked about – Hong Kong Fashion Week which happened a few weeks ago.  Being Asian, I’ve got a little bit of Asian Pride and thought I should give a shout-out to one of the famous designers, Shanghai Tang.

Saying Goodbye to 2014 Trends : Contouring

A couple of weeks ago, I did an eyebrow post of the trends of 2014.  I was meant to do another 2014 trend post the week after but came down with massive allergies which made the skin on my face swell and peel like there’s no tomorrow.  It went on for a few cycles, so I apologize for the late post! Today’s post will be a 2014 Contouring trend.   Contouring seemed to be all the craze in 2014, so I thought I would do a crazy contouring post to “celebrate” crazy contouring!

Antipodean Beauties – Femme Fatale

Antipodean Beauties Banner

This week’s challenge is kind of exciting.. Femme Fatale.

 

When I think femme fatale, I think Angelina Jolie (in all her action movies) or Mila Jovovich in Resident Evil.  (Girl power ftw?) To me, Femme Fatale makeup is very clean and minimal, sexy, mysterious and powerful.  Here is the look I came up with…
