A beauty blog where I express my passion towards makeup and fashion. Though the reason I like makeup is how it can drastically change one's look, I believe that beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.
It's been a really long while seen I last wrote a post here. A lot has happened in the past year and I would like to update you all through Youtube, but as for now, making videos is not an option for me because I recently lost my camera and there are too many things that I have to deal with in my life now. But overall, I am doing well. I really do appreciate the emails that I have been receiving; they have really encouraged me.
Anyways, I am here today to tell you all about Zinio, a amazing company that delivers thousands of top magazine from around the world. If you enjoy reading magazines, especially fashion magazines, I am sure you would have at least heard of ALLURE, GLAMOUR and COSMOPOLITAN, if you have not read them before.

Hey girls! It's been a while since I last updated my blog. I feel so bad about abandoning my blog. I have an exciting news to let you all, but I think I am going to film a video for that. Today I am going to show you guys what I dressed up as for Halloween. A kitty! I had so much fun dressing up. I hope you guys had an awesome time dressing up too!
Filled my upper lip with black eye liner. Extended the corner and curved the line upward.
Had a heart-shaped nose and whiskers on each side of my cheek.
Make myself a pair of ears using index cards, velvet fabric and pipe cleaners.
A sequined black dress. Put on a black belt to support my cat tail.
It was really last minute that I decided to dress up for Halloween, I didn't have any costume so I made my own cat ears and cat tail. The tail is made of papers and masking tape. It doesn't look really nice, but oh well, I had no choice.
I think this look would be perfect if I paired it with a pair of black heels but I wore a pair of white heels instead, because I am not at home and I don't have any black heels with my right now.
I hope you guys had a great Halloween. November is finally here and I can't wait to see what God has in store for me. I hope you guys are doing well and I hope I will have time to put up a video soon. Take care!
The essence of the mask is very concentrated. My skin feels soft and bouncy, especially after using Collagen Infusion Essential Mask. I love the cellulose mask sheet as it adheres to my face really well. The price of this mask is quite reasonable.
What I dislike about this product:
The essence of the mask makes my skin feels sticky after I remove the mask. I have to wipe of the excess with a piece of tissue paper and pat it to dry (which takes quite a while).
Price: RM10.90 for a mask from the Special Care Line, RM8.90 for a mask from the Intensive Care Line

Maybelline New York is having a Fashion Week in Mid Valley. I went there yesterday after work to grab some discounted products and to watch the 'From Catwalk to Sidewalk' fashion show.
The staff there are very enthusiastic and helpful. They know their products very well. So if there is something you want to get from Maybelline but do not know what colour is suitable for your skin tone, this is a chance for you to go there and talk to one of their beauty advisors. I am sure they will help you to get the product that is a perfect match to your skin.
I have always liked fashion shows and to imagine myself being in one (but I know I will never be, I don't think I have the confidence). Using my almost dead camera, I managed to snap a few pictures of the fashion show. At the end of the show, makeup tips are given especially to those who are new to makeup.
Things I bought:
Pure BB Mineral Mousse for RM47.88
A recently-launched product. Super light-weight. Suitable for everyday use. I am happy that I bought it.
Clear Smooth Shine Free Pressed Powder for RM12.88
I use this everyday especially on my eyelids before I put on eyeliner to prevent my eyeliner to smudge due to my oily eyelids. If you have oily lids and you eyeliner smudges even before the end of the day, you should give this a try.
HyperSharp Liner for RM16.73
I am a fan of gel liner and I have not owned a liquid liner for a really long time. I have heard good reviews about this eye liner, so I decided to give it a try.
Babylips Lip Balm for RM9.88
I do not like to use lip balm. I bought this just so that my bill would exceed RM80 and I could get a eyelash curler for free.
I used to paint my nails a lot and have different nail design every week. As college work became more hectic, I removed my nail polish less often and now I don't even have a habit of painting my nails. Sometimes when my girl friends come over to my house for sleepovers, we paint our nails and draw on some pretty designs. Here is a design I did on my friend's nails, it is also the one that I am most proud of. :P
My nail polishes are barely used now. I think it's time for me to start painting my nails again. Anyway, below is a video of my nail polish collection, hope you girls like it!
