The real hype about this mascara is its the World’s first dual jelly brush. With special jelly material to design this bristle for the Asian eyes. The key to this dual jelly brush are its clean finish, through application with no mess.
The ultra fine 0.2mm bristles ensure each lash receive a perfect coating, the special arch that you can see within the brush will pick up the right amount of formula for each stroke.

I then finish the eye look with Lashperm Curlfix Mascara in brown.

Shu Uemura | Light Sculptor

Advertorial
Hey lovely, 
Shu Uemura new collection is all about the “contour-makeup” concept of slimming down the face without surgery which is very popular in Asia hence leading expert in Asian beauty SHUATELIER develop Light Sculptor that enables easy sculpting and instant contouring through a fusion of light using 3 main products.
These 3 main products have a specific application method to enhance the beauty of the bone structure, giving a natural dimensional effect without looking artificial. This means your makeup will look less like you have been piling on a ton of bronzer.
Stage Performer Glow Creator | 30ml S$62
Prime & Finish 
24 Hours Moisturizing – Dazzling Glow (limited Shade)
This deep moisturizing base and top coat will give you an instantly boosted inner glow look. Comes in 3 shades Dazzling Glow (limited Shade), Pure Gold and Warm Gold. 
When translucent glow meets moisturized glow, it immediately smooth skin and gives a natural glow. Talk about having dewy looking skin! 
Ingredients like Royal Jelly Extract will give your skin a nourish feel, Sodium Hyaluronate support water retention while adenosine has anti-aging effect. Not to forget it has anti-oxidation element.
Lightbulb Fluid Foundation and Sponge – 564 Medium Light Sand | 27ml S$72
This lightbulb foundation comes with a sponge where you can learn the technique of using this duo HERE. Loving the high coverage which allows me to apply less concealer around my dark eyes circle, at the same time it has a very dewy/glowing finish that’s moisturising too. Comes in 10 different shades so do head down to Shu Uemura counter to find your perfect shade.
Lightbulb Glowing Face Powder + Puff | 15g S$60
Since this is in the shade colourless, it adds a soft and warm-lit glow to your skin. The secret lies in the formula where it is an oil-coated powder which create a translucent glow minus off the powdery feeling. The puff on the other hand works to pick-up thin and even layer before applying on face. The mesh helps to give fine powder with each pick-up which you can see below.
Multi-Concealer Palette – 7YR light & 7YR dark
The light concealer I use it on my under eyes as for the dark one, I use it as a contouring shade applying on the side of my face as well as the chin area. Since it is cream in texture it blends very well with the lightbulb foundation.
Now that I’ve shown you the products, it’s time to show you the application process. Do note that Step 3 I didn’t follow the exact method. 
Step 1 | Prime
You can see the slight glow where the sunlight hits.
Step 2 | Create
Using the lighbulb fluid foundation, my skin looks extra dewy and moisturised. Even my dark circle are mostly covered up.
Added step | Conceal and Contour
Skin I receive the concealer I wanted to put it to good use before moving on to Step 3, so here is me using the light shade to conceal my under eyes area and the darker shade to contour as mention before. after blending it out it looks very natural and not harsh. This allow me to skip the bronzing powder.
Step 3 | Control
As mention on top I didn’t follow exactly by applying the powder on the T-zone as show in the techniques as well as the glow creator on the selected area. I would definitely do it the next time round. Overall I enjoy how it turns out, the lightbulb glowing face powder is really light hence even after applying all over my face, it does not feel cakey at all! 
After finishing off the makeup here’s how you can look photo ready below, or in this case selfie ready at all time!!! *smile*

Etude Zero Sebum & Moistfull White Mela Perfect Serum

Sponsored Post
Having oily skin is a pretty common problem to my fellow Singaporeans as we are constantly being blast with scorching heat by Mr Sunshine so what can we do?
Well, Etude House recently launch a new range of skincare products call Zero Sebum which is dedicated to the oily skin type. This range mainly tackle the sebum on our skin so these are the products.
Zero Sebum Drying Powder
What it does: A mineral powder that provide clear skin without dryness or flakiness
How to use: You can use it as a makeup loose powder by lightly dabbing onto sebum concentrated areas
I personally use it as a loose powder after BB cushion, if you found that it’s too light for your skin tone, you might want to lightly dab on concentrated areas after applying your usual compact powder.
Zero Sebum White Sebum Clear 
What it does: Help to melt white sebum on nose and chin
How to use: Apply on nose and chin, leave it for 3 minutes and remove with a tissue
It in a cream to gel like texture, easy to use and clean as only require 3 minutes and wipe off with tissue. It’s gentle hence can use a few times a week
Zero Sebum Day Matte Gel
What it does: With natural grain powder, it removes first signs of sebum oil with its gentle silicon-free formula, delivering powdery and oil-free skin all day
How to use: It’s a moisturise for your face so you can use it day and night
I found this pretty good to be used in the day as it keeps your face from getting too oily and shiny.
The light texture blends into skin easily and your skin will feels smooth and look matte.
Moistfull White Mela Perfect Serum
What it does: Purifying your skin off any dead skin cells in order to optimise your skin’s ability to absorb the serum. The intense moisture will give your skin a healthy glow, hence brightening a dull and darken skin.
How to use: Moisturiser to be use day and night before usual skincare routin
Since I use the Day Matte Gel in the morning, I prefer to use this at night for brightening and moisture as it can be a little heavy on my skin in the day. The texture is a liquidity gel that smell great too.
The Zero Sebum Line & Moistfull White Mela Perfect Serum are currently available at all ETUDE HOUSE outlets so you can head to the store and try it out yourself.
Smooth skin all day long ~

Etude House Dreaming Swan

On 21st May I was invited by the lovely TouchPR team to attend Etude House latest outlet opening located at Vivo City #B1-03. It was like stepping into a princess land from Nail Parlour, Makeup Corner to Sweet Catcher Machine and Interactive Social Media Wall. Together with the media opening was the launch of the limited edition Dreaming Swan Collection, a beautifully curated set of make-up and accessories specially designed by International fashion illustrator, Kerrie Hess. This collection is by far one of the prettiest design of Etude House makeup, so beautiful that I couldn’t help but went back to get another blush and the pink brush that came with the collection.
The colour of the blush are all so lovely and one particular colour got ladies going “okay, that’s interesting” was the lavender shades. I was told that the lavender shade happens to be the most popular one in Korea and when I swipe the colour, I realise it looks more cool tone pink rather than purple which I can see why Korean ladies love it. I personally found the colour more suitable towards fair skin tone as it’s really light. Hence, it will look a more natural on fair skin.
The great thing about the Dreaming Swan lipstick was getting the exact colour swatch from the lipstick that you see so the pigmentation is definitely on point.
The Sweet Catcher Crawl Machine is super cute! They have gift such as candy to voucher or Etude House product to win from!
The Nail Parlour consist of both manicure and pedicure so you can get yourself doll up from head to toe.

Lastly I would like to give love and hugs to the TouchPR Team for such a wonderful evening.

Glam-It! GlamPact

Recently I attended the Glam-it! event where I got to customise my own makeup palette from colour to placement. Glam-it! is a compact beauty kit that have been endorsed by beauty and fashion influencers and celebrity clientele. Founder of Glam-it! is a former actress turned successful serial entrepreneur who is passionate about luxury, beauty and fashion, Ms Jennifer Cheng who understand the needs of women have definitely felt the pressure to “look perfect” 24/7 and often experience it in a business world hence created GlamPact as she fully embrace the philosophy of “Me for Me’ knowing that each girl is her own best asset and advocate. By putting herself first, she had become more stronger and empowered hence feeling more beautiful of oneself. 
Her mission is to help girls to save time and and manage their purse space efficiently. At the event I got to meet up some ladies and get our hands on the shades. After hearing so much from Jennifer about Glam-it!, we can feel how passionate she is about this product. 
She have also won awards such as SuperAchiever Woman Award by CMO Asia & Most Promising Entrepreneur Award by Asia Pacific Entrepreneurship Awards APEA
What’s special about GlamPact is you get to customise your GlamPact and with a total of 11 modules. 3 of which are large ones such as your press powder/blush/bronzer/highlighter. The rest of the 8 small modules are lip/eye shadow/concealer. Even the brush kits are all packed in. Did I mention they even has a LED lighted mirror without the use of batteries?
The GlamPact is re-design to make it fit better. Jennifer actually place her GlamPact in her clutch to show us how portable it is.
Most importantly all GlamPact contains clinical and botanical skincare ingredients to make your skin look good from inside out with long term benefits. We can’t say no to that! 
Since now a days many of us ladies start to take note of the ingredients that is used in makeup, Glam-it! guarantees that all products in the GlamPact are made with vegan ingredients with no animal testing and completely paraben, sulfate, and gluten free.
Fun fact: Behind each makeup shade there is either a deeper meaning, inside joke or some kind of inspiration. 
Example 
I Want Candy – After winning an award for entrepreneurship, Jennifer was asked if she would like anything else when leaving the stage and she responded “I Want Candy”. Therefore this ultra-feminine pink lip colour is the epitome of the sweetness if success.
Rich Girl – This was inspired by Jenn’s friends who mentioned that her upscale carefree life as a girl who seemingly had everything was more complicated than it appeared on the shiny surface.
