Make-up Transformation

Natural is beautiful and makeup is gorgeous and glamorous. I think that makeup is just a tool to enhance the beautiful features that we already have, not a mask to cover and to change our face completely. When doing makeup, aim for a natural look and use the right products to achieve that. I did the make-up and hair-do of my beautiful friend for her photo shoot wearing SARI, their traditional gown. She is so beautiful that i just need to enhance it with a touch of makeup, baaaamm! She is all glammed up.

I love doing makeover to other people because of the feeling of satisfaction it gives me.  The best part is that after the makeover, the model keep looking at herself in the mirror with the expression ‘ahhh… oohh… uhhh…’ and to see the smile of confidence they have after the makeover means the world to me. My favourite picture is the one with sunset below, she is like a goddess, perfect combination the sari and and the sunset.

I chose MAC lipstick in ‘House Wine’ because it compliments the colour of the Sari, it is a darker red brick colour that has orange and brown undertone that really brightens up her face. On the inner half of the eye i used Half baked a beautiful gold shimmery shade in Naked2 palette that really opens up the eye and also compliment the colour combination of her Sari. Bold and winged eye liner is just a must in every ‘Indian Makeup Look’. Because she has beautiful thick eyebrows, i just used brown eyeshadow to make it more defined but still natural. To complete the look a pair of falsies added more drama to the eyes and to the whole look. Hope you enjoy my post.

Neon oh Neon….

NEON??? yes neon!!! this time of year it seems that neon is not really the appropriate color but hey i’m living in a country where the weather is hot and humid all throughout the year. This forever 21 top is actually from their summer collection last year where neon was sporadically everywhere from outfit, accessories, shoes, bags, underwear, you name it. It’s just a truly and eternally summer color . For my liking, an outfit with this type of color and a big cut out at the back (i forgot to take picture of the cutout at the back) is a night out appropriate outfit only. I paired this top with black shoes, short and bag making it brighter but at the same time tone it down a bit as compared with pairing it with another color. I think that neon and black outfit with a touch of red bold lip and nail adds sophistication to the overall look. This pairing is just really a date night appropriate because if worn during day time its like you are shouting ‘Look at me people!!!’ LOL. _DSC9517 _DSC9487 _DSC9499 _DSC9492 _DSC9489

Juxtaposition of Stripes

I just have to admit that black and white pairing outfit are always attractive . It is such a staple in every wardrobe because of its simplicity and boldness. Black and white stripe outfit was everywhere last spring/summer 2013 and it’s still going strong until now because this combo is just so timeless and that everyone can really pull this off. So in love with this pairing because, first of all it, is a budget friendly outfit but still makes me feel like a ‘million dollars’ and it’s made of stretchy material that really fits like a glove that, with a boost of a pair of nice pumps, really accentuate the shape making it sexy and chic. This outfit is perfect for brunch or a meet up with some friends.

Red Lip Vs Polkadot

A Red lip (using Mac Ruby Woo) always looks gorgeous with black and white outfit. I’m wearing ZARA low back figure-fitting pencil dress, which creates a taller and slimmer looking body. The cut, with polka dot design, is so feminine and classy. I got the matching bracelet from Forever21 and it so versatile you can wear it as a bracelet or as a headband or for your pony tail. The orange bag adds a pop of color that ties the outfit together making it stylish. This outfit is good for casual business meeting, going out with friends or it can also be used as an office outfit for a more stylish business environment.

Leopard print ‘Crop Top’

So I tried this leopard print crop top as I was really attracted to the print. It looks cute when I tried it on and when paired with a high-waisted black pencil skirt, it highlights the shape and gives a slimmer looking body. This outfit is good for a social gathering where you want to look chic and put together.

Black and White

i’ve been really into black and white clothing lately. Last week when i was in the store looking for an outfit (as in one piece) to match my shoes that i got on sale at ZARA, I just can’t stop grabbing and putting the ‘black and white’ pieces into my shopping bag and ended up buying, impulsively, 3 pairs of ‘black and white’ clothes. I shook my head (as if i was being hypnotised) and realised that i just paid for more unnecessary things.In my defense ‘they look cute on me **sigh**

So this is it and i hope you like it and will find my upcoming my posts helpful. lets go through this journey together in sharing all our beauty secrets, skills to prettify ourselves *wink*
