5 Makeup Looks To Make Your Eyes Pop

“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.

Seoul searching in fabulous Seoul, South Korea: Beauty, Food & Fashion

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!~

I just came back from Seoul, Korea, recently and I’m still wishing I was back in the cold, with occasional snow while walking down the shopping streets of Garosu-gil, Hongdae and Myeongdong.

It’s 25 years into my life and it was my virgin visit to the popular travel destination, South Korea, to attend a K-Beauty conference – Made in Korea (MIK) 2017 – courtesy of MyFatPocket. It was my first time travelling with MFP’s Editor, Xinyi (@xinyicyndisoh) too. This short trip was a rather fruitful one as I got acquainted with many K-Beauty brands that are looking to expand to our tiny little red dot, ate many local dishes and bought even more makeup!
