Eyeshadow Simplified: Here’s How To Get Complex-looking Eye Makeup With Only 3 Colors!

Hello lovelies! I think that being makeup aficionados, all of us have days when we lack inspiration. We go to Youtube and dozens of galleries filled with makeup looks like Beautylish and Makeupgeek’s idea gallery, to find most of those looks too complex and difficult.

Never fear, because I have found the lazy girl’s way of looking fabulous without using the entire rainbow, unless you really want to. It is the result of months and months of experimentation and now I bring to you a rather simple way to apply eyeshadow if you want to have all the elements of a killer eyeshadow look with less hassle!

Does It Really Last All Night? Quick Review: Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

When you live in the tropics, you’re forever surrounded by humidity and heat. Those two things are not too good if you want your makeup to stay through the day, particularly if you’re out and about. If you have oily skin and live in an area with such climate, you’ll need all the help you can get.

UD All Nighter Setting Spray

Let us welcome the Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray, made in collaboration with Skindinavia. Like all things Urban Decay, it was heavily out of my poor Uni kid budget under usual circumstances, but thanks to Sephora, I came across a little travel sized bottle of the stuff selling at RM 49, just like its cousin, the Urban Decay Naked BB cream.

It’s supposed to make makeup applications last for up to 16 hours, and the moment I saw that claim on the packaging, I swiped it immediately, because I’m the kind of girl who cannot be bothered to touch up at all.

Photo Update: When September Ended

Hello everyone! I do apologize for my 3 week absence, but trust me, you lovelies were always on my mind! I was quite a busy bee during this interim period of radio silence, but if you follow me on social media (particularly Instagram), you’ll know what I’ve been up to! However, if you don’t, well, here’s a pictorial recap for you.

Eyebrows, Baby, Eyebrows!

There was a time when I hardly cared about my eyebrows, not because I could not be bothered, because I was too darned scared to do anything to them. You see, my brows are sparse, but they are thick, and the worst is that I have eyebrow hairs growing on the eyelids. Not a pretty thing at all.

I used to get them shaped at Shu Uemura every few months, but when the price increased to RM 30 per session, my dear wallet was screaming for me to spare it. I then moved from place to place to get my eyebrows shaped, usually for RM 10 per session at beauty parlors in my neighborhood.

I was threading my brows up for about 1.5 years, and I realized that it worked best for me because the hair regrowth was very slow. I decided to give it a slight rest because I like how my brows look, slightly thick but somewhat still shapely, so I will only pluck off the stray hairs from time to time. I will have them threaded when I feel like I can no longer handle them.

On a daily basis, I will not leave the door in naked brows, because they frame the face and make me look seemingly polished without the need for any more makeup. So, do check out this brow tutorial I’ve done for easy, breezy brows!
