Throwback Thursday

This image shows a collage of eye makeup looks for throwback thursday.

Throwback Thursdays are still a thing, right? Just in case you were wondering, yes. Those eye photos were created and snapped by yours truly. Funny isn't it when you look back at a makeup look you've done before and you're just amused like, "what? I thought that was good? ha ha". But seriously though, my brows needed a little TLC(they still do now), and my eyeshadow wasn't blended in properly at all. But props for effort, ay? Although I must say I've started to master the art of creating winged liners. Ever since I've discovered winged liners when I was 13, I purchased my first eyeliner and the rest was history. Sure there were tons of ups and downs (ridiculously overdrawn, thick, tasteless winged liners) but there's always a first (few tries) time to everything! I've been getting questions on how to do my liner and fret now, I'll be doing a post on it soon! 

What is makeup throwback thursday? Good or bad?

2 Drugstore Eye Pencils That You Should Invest In.

This image shows 2 NYX jumbo eye pencils in milk and black bean.

Eye pencils are my favourites when it comes to lazy eye makeup. They can be used in so many ways - a base for your eyeshadow, act as a cream eyeshadow and fill in your waterline. You'll be surprised how much you can get from just a SGD 9 eye pencil from NYX. I'm here to introduce you 2 shades that you should invest in. Trust me, if you see the other colour range from this particular product, it will make you swoon.

This image shows 2 blue eyeshadows that complements brown eyes.

Can't you tell I'm obsessed with different shades of blue? I was browsing through old photos and chanced upon various makeup looks which I've experimented on my own face. Needless to say, most of them aren't stamped approval. But, throwback to this look which I've posted on Instagram eight months ago, there's something flattering about blue eyeshadow to brown eyes.

3 products to make your colour eyeshadow pop! + Mini review on Maybelline Tattoo Eyeshadow - Tenacious Teal

This image shows an asian girl wearing Maybelline Tattoo Eyeshadow in Tenacious Teal.

Besides eating, I consider playing with makeup as more then just a hobby, but an absolute passion. Did I just compare my love of beauty with food? Yes, I just did. I was feeling slightly adventurous so I decided to play with a bit of colour. And by colour, I really mean bright neons, pinks, and yellows. Imagine Urban Decay's Electric Pressed Pigment palette or Sleek's i-Divine Ultra Matte V1 palette.  What better way to use my unopened pot of Tenacious Teal from Maybelline. I opted for this turquoise/sea blue-esque sorta shade and paired it with orange lips. Now, because I'm a neutral kinda girl, a pop of colour under the eyes will leave me pretty chuffed. So, how do you apply a pop of colour and make it even more outstanding than it already is? Here we go....

BUDGET BUY | Maybelline - The Rocket Volume Express

This image shows a review of the maybelline the rocket volume express mascara.

Few months ago, I was watching Claire's September Favorites video. Now, if you know me, you know I adore that chick. Whatever she's in, I'm in so I've decided to jump in the rocket volume express bandwagon. And boy was that a good choice because not only did I enjoyed it, it was also featured in Claire's 2014 Beauty Favorites! I've seen so many beauty addicts talk about it, so why the hell not? I've always been a sucker for high street mascaras and they usually don't disappoint. Since it's called the rocket, I assume they purposely designed the shape into a "mini rocket". Or is it just me?

This image shows a tips on a valentines day makeup look.

When it comes to Valentines Day makeup, the word PINK comes to mind. It's probably embossed at the back of our heads because whenever I ask someone what kind of makeup would look great for the holiday and they would immediately say, "anything pink!". No, seriously, this was a look I did last year - it has pink written all over it. Now, I know some of y'all are not a fan of pinks at all (how many times have I mentioned the word pink in this post?), let alone wearing a bright neon pink lip. With that aside, I have 3 ways to amp up your look this loveable season...ready?
