So, here’s my NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint review. You can either watch me rambling about this foundation on my Youtube channel, or you can read all about this foundation in this review. I pretty much say the same thing on the video and this post, but probably I have a better train of thoughts on this post.
Are you guys still looking for inspiration for Valentine’s day makeup? I created this smoldering plum smoky look using Tarte Light of the Party palette. The eyeshadows in this palette are very soft and sheer, and it’s probably not everyone’s cup of tea but I love it. I would say this look would be a pretty look for Valentine’s day, if you’re looking to do smoky eyes.
The Sun is out this week, and I’m feeling all bright and cheerful so I decided to create a teal eye makeup look. This Urban Decay Urban Spectrum makeup tutorial is going to be refreshing and bright! I love how it turned out! The teal eyeshadow I used is called Deep End (from the UD Spectrum palette), and it’s such a vibrant color. I’d definitely rock this color in the Spring/Summer time. So pretty!
Last Tuesday, I finally grabbed the latest Chanel foundation and so I’ve decided to post this Chanel Healthy Glow Foundation review. I used this foundation on my latest Lunar New Year tutorial if you want to see how it looks in action. Anyways, just so you know, I returned this foundation this weekend back to the Chanel counter. Want to know why? Read more below!
Since the Lunar New Year is just around the corner, I’ve decided to create this Chinese New Year makeup inspired by the year of the Red Monkey! This look is filled with gold and red which represent wealth and luck! I know that there’s a lot of different cultures who celebrate the Lunar New Year, so I’ll be referring it as Lunar New Year instead of Chinese New Year. I wrote Chinese New Year on the title for SEO purposes. I hope that’s ok with everyone!
As promised, here’s a how to reverse contour tutorial. I’ve come to a realization that there has been a few beauty vloggers and bloggers who attempted the Reverse Contour technique using very dark and very light foundations. Let me stop you right there! Using shades that are way too dark and too light for your skin do not work! The Eve Pearl Reverse Contouring technique does NOT use foundations/concealers that are TOO light and too dark. Instead, this technique actually uses 2 foundation colors that are very similar in shade to each other.
Today’s Glamorous Evening Makeup video tutorial is going to be slightly different. Instead of doing the makeup on myself, I’m doing it on my bff, Liz. She was going out for a party last Saturday night, and I wanted to make her look glam for the event. Liz is about a shade or two darker than me (1 shade darker in the Winter, and 2 in the Summer), and she has these amazing big gorgeous eyes and high cheekbones. You’ll see it when you watch the video!
I received a request by Dila who wanted me to do a video to show her how to create a smoky winged liner. She saw me back in 2014 when I was in Jakarta, and when we met I was wearing the day version of this smoky winged liner. Check out my Smokey Winged Liner post if you prefer a pictorial, or one which you can wear for a day look. This smoky winged liner tutorial is a darker, smokier version.
I’ve been wanting to write this ChopSaver Review for a while, but since I wanted to push my youtube tutorials first, I decided to postpone this post until today. Anyways, just a quick background story, I received a sample of the Chopsaver a few days after New Year, and since the weather has been getting colder, my lips have been pretty dry and chappy lately. I’m quite picky with lip products since I have quite sensitive lips. I’ve tried several lip balms but I just didn’t like how some of them feel too goey/sticky on my lips, while some are just simply not moisturizing enough.
