“Be a unicorn in a field of horses.”
That’s right, why be an ordinary horse when you can colour up your life and be a fun-loving unicorn? I’m totally feeling Coachella vibes in this whimsical collection by Too Faced. Indeed, as what the name of the collection says, “Life’s A Festival”, so go on, be happy and celebrate! But first, MAKEUP!
The Too Faced Life’s A Festival Collection is a celebration of good vibes, good music and amazing makeup. Too Faced Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer, Jerrod Blandino wants you to live your best life, celebrate yourself, and be free with this beautiful collection of iridescent formulas and rainbow pigments! Artist and songwriter, RaeLynn, fronts the collection with her song, “Festival”. Talk about good music!
WARNING: LONG POST BUT GOOD VIBES AHEAD.
We were in 2017 where holographic = life. Just when you thought that maybe holograph is going out of trend, it’s going to be bigger and better this 2018. Expect a ton of holographic glitter and shimmer this year and for starters, I’m already digging the yet-to-be-released Urban Decay Distortion Eyeshadow Palette.
We saw how the Kat Von D Alchemist Palette gave you that holographic glow on your cheeks, working its magic on transforming your eyeshadows and lipsticks early last year. Just when I was happily playing with those shades, Urban Decay decided to drop an entire palette dedicated to shade morphing. They’ve made it bigger (literally) and (maybe?) better. The Urban Decay Distortion Eyeshadow Palette is here to inject more fun in the way you do your eye makeup.
I couldn’t wait for the launch here in Singapore so much so that I got mine from the States but at a hefty price tag (because of shipping) but no regrets there because once a #UDJunkie, always one!
“Somedays, you just have to create your own sunshine.”
How do you create your own sunshine? For me, I create my own sunshine and rainbows daily, in the form of my eye makeup! Eyeshadows are my LIFE and I can never live without colouring my eyelids. I’ve tried to head out without eyeshadows once and I was very disturbed at how plain my eyelids looked. Do you have this problem too? Tell me I’m not alone!
Well, even if I’m all alone in this, I’ll gladly be on my own because it brings me immense joy to play with makeup every morning before I head to work. Even if means waking up half an hour earlier, I’m not complaining because it’s the kind of sunshine I create for myself every day. The recent Christmas sales got me snagging a couple of new eyeshadow palettes and I just want to share with you some of the looks I’ve done for the past week! Here are 5 makeup looks to make your eyes pop.
The long-awaiting Gigi Hadid x Maybelline makeup collection has finally launched! Well, not fully, but some of it has reached our shores! The collection reveals the story of Hadid’s life as she sees it, one shade at a time from her home base in New York City to her hometown in Los Angeles. Go from City Chic to Cali Vibes with the cool-toned and warm shades!
I’m not going to follow the City Chic nor the Cali Vibes look, but instead, I’m mixing it up according to mood 😉 Oh, and read till the end for a giveaway!
Just when you thought there’s still a couple of weeks away from Christmas, it’s this weekend! This Christmas, all I want is to thank everyone of you who reads this little humble blog and also to all the brands who believe in @paradeoflove. I can never come this far without all of you and I’m always counting my blessings because you guys are so nice to me! J But before I embark on my long “Thank You” speech (just kidding), I want to let some colours do the talking.
If you’ve been following me on my Instagram page (@paradeoflove), you’d have seen some rainbow eyes on my IG Stories and the very palette that allowed me to create that look is the Urban Decay Heavy Metals Metallic Eyeshadow Palette!
