Hi, it’s the first day of Ramadhan so, I spent my morning on the bed, watching some makeup tutorial videos on Youtube. Plus, here in Johor, it’s a day off today, due to Awal Ramadhan. So, I kept on watching Alexandrea Garza makeup tutorials and she uses a lot of Benefit products. Being an impressionable girl that I sometimes am, I straight away clicked on Benefit Cosmetics and started to browse the price range for all the products offered on the website. They’re kinda pricey, coming from a very high quality cosmetic label, so that’s understood.

I started to browse local trading websites like Lazada and some others, but the Benefit products that I want are not available there. I know there’s one Benefit boutique in One Utama, MidValley and Paradigm and if I can’t find them anywhere online, maybe I’ll just go there. Sadly no Benefit in Johor. 😦

Well here, my Benefit wish list that I picked on from Garza’s makeup tutorial videos.

If someone gives me these right now, I don’t even have to eat to break my fast. These just give energy throughout the month. Haha hopefully I manage to get them all before Syawal. Those will be my Raya makeup tools and I will be a very happy girl.

People say if you want something, you write them down. Well, I’m blogging it down so the most powerful force up there, please make my dream come true!

 

To Look Good, Is To Feel Good

It’s the weekend now! The room is messy and I decided to tidy it. But well, with hubby sleeping in the bed, his T-shirts and jeans all over the room, not helping at all I may add, makes me reconsider that thought. Unlike the other night when he was doing the same thing (again), this time, I decided not to be mad. Anger equals to wasting energy. So, I just smiled and threw all of his clothes on the floor, on the stool, on the bed to the laundry basket, and after that, FOCUSED ON MY MAKE-UP TABLE. ONLY. I’ll get back to the tidying part later.

Dusting the table, forcing me to rearrange my precious little things on the table such as lipsticks, eyeliners, brooches, lotions and stuff. So, why not I take pictures of them before kemas balik kan? Just for fun.

My lipsticks+lipgloss collection. Actually, there's another one with darker colour, but I think I lost it.

My eye make-up! Yes, I don't use them all but this collection of mine, is my favourite!

Treatment and some make-up for my face. As you can see, I don't use much product for my face. Just a moisturizer, BB cream, and compact powder, and a blusher for finishing if I go out. My face is quite sensitive.

I have wasted so much money on this? Never mind, they're all worth it. Haha

My set of brushes.

Owh, my Cohort 3 friends! Any of you still have this?

My perfume. I only have a few. Unlike some people, I love to have my own signature scent. If this one is finished, I'll go and buy the same one. 🙂

Brooches and bangles.. :-D. Owh, do you notice that Australia stamp that I have in the box? It's been 5 years and still keep it until now.

Lotion and talcum powder, dedodorant and stuff..

After I rearranged them. There's an Adara White on the pink box, that's my supplement.

What's in the box??

I honestly, seriously don’t use them all. There is a lot of stuff that I bought and have never used it at all. It just makes me happy buying those and seeing my collection gets bigger, that’s all. And I love to add more to my brooches and bangles collection. So, feel free to give me those as presents. HAHAHAHAHA

Okay, bye.

It’s Sunday again! Don’t feel like writing too much today, just some updates.

Did some online shopping today and bought myself few stuff. MAC eyeshadow 15 palettes (I choose natural colour for smokey eyes). I also bought Bobbi Brown set of brushes (12 pcs). Both cost me around RM tuuuut. Haha. But it’s gonna take a looooong time (maybe 2-3 weeks) for the items to arrive since they’re ordered from outside Malaysia.

Having said that, I’m broke. Thank you very much.

Ahh… Feel like cutting my hair today. I always wanna keep my front or side hair longer than my back hair. Eh, I didn’t mean ‘back hair’ (the one that men usually have at the back of their body), NO, not that. Euww. I mean, my HAIR.AT.THE.BACK. What do you call that ha?? Back hair la kan? Haha. My English sucks. Bummer! Enough la explaining that. I know you guys get what I mean.

Its something like Victoria's hair..

Yeah well, it certainly would look like hers if my hair has more volume. Whatever!

Okay now, off to cut my ‘back hair’.

p/s- I am my own barber.

To Those Who Don’t Have INNER Beauty, Let’s Learn To Create OUTER Beauty!

I was soo bored the other day and started viewing random videos on Youtube before I stumbled upon this fab lady, Michelle Phan.

 

The superb Michelle Phan

In her videos, she teaches how to do the most gorgeous eye make-up from simple to glamorous look. I really love the way she applies her make-up coz she makes it look so easy, plus, she’s good at playing with colours.

She has uploaded sooo many videos and these are ones of my favourites.

This one is nice, day and night make-up. SUPER SIMPLE!

A Forest Fairy eye make-up. Not practical for everyday use of course, but I like the creativity here.

I can try this romantic look when I go dating with my hubby! Love the colour and I’m 100% sure hubby will love it too!

Step by step eye make-up tutorial. It’s very useful especially for amateur like moi. Haha

I think this is like, too much (maybe) but it’s not a crime to try it once in a while, right?

Same like the birthday eye make-up video, this is NOT for casual outings. It’s too WOW and too glittery. But of course, this is only a guideline you see. You can always use the same steps, but minimize the glittery. Ceh, mcm video aku la pulak. Haha

OMG!! I love this smokey eyes look!!!!!!!

Another one thing I like about her is the voice. It is soooo soft and sweet! With the background song, she makes the videos look very exclusive.

Last year, my make-up style (if that can be called make-up lah) when I went to work was so simple, I just used compact powder, an eyeliner and a lipbalm. Coz I used to think that, ‘kalau x mekap sgt pon, aku still yg paling cantik kat sekolah tu haha’. Now, I started to use some colours on my face to make me look ‘dewasa’ sikit lah kunun.

As for the eye make-up, this is how I did it. I usually applied my dark brown gel eyeliner first, then I used the eyeshadow. I know I did it the wrong way coz as soon as I applied the base eyeshadow, the colour of the eyeliner that I applied earlier was a bit distracted. I noticed it, but I guess I didn’t really care coz I liked it that way. Now, I wanna do it like Michelle. 😀 EXCITED!

But before that, I HAVE TO GET a bigger eye-shadow palette, more brushes (LONG ONES), a white eyeliner and a liquid eyeliner! Owh, and also a mascara since I’m running out of one. Maybe, some fake lashes too!

I’M SO BUYING THEM! It’s a MUST to buy the next time I hit any drug store.

 

My EA eyeshadow pallete, very small and compact. I need something bigger!

p/s – I seriously HATE my makeup on my wedding reception, the one at my place. The one in Muar was thousand times better and I LOVE it!
