I HAVE FOUND MY NEW MAKEUP!!!!!!!!!!! *SCREAMING IN JOY*

 

I am a person who’s veryyyyyy picky on the cosmetics I use and everytime I try a new brand/product, if it isn’t my liking I’ll just dump it aside and never buy it again.

 

But, KATE cosmetics(a sister brand of KANEBO) have everything I’m looking for!! (I’ll tell you my fav fav fav product later!) (・ω・)ノン

 

So I did this makeup(below) using the few products given by KATE. ☆☆

I’m very honoured to be invited to KATE’s private blogger event together with some beauty bloggers and it was held at Fuze@283. And what’s good was that there’s LIVE demonstration by Mr. Mikiya-san(he came all the way from Japan just for this event!!) on how to apply full make up to our face. Hehe and then I know………………….. ALL ALONG I WASN’T DOING IT THE RIGHT WAY!

 

 Here’s all the happenings at KATE Blogger’s Event.

 


Japanese makeup artist, Mr. Mikiya Hirai.

 


Live demonstration with Mr. Mikiya-san and the model. He helped showcase how to transform day make-up to night make-up, really exciting because sometimes my make-up tends to wear off after a long day!

 


Starting off with him blotting the model’s face, he follows up with Kate Lasting High Coverage Powder Foundation.




Then, Mr. Mikiya-san used Kate Designing Eyebrow on the model’s brows.

 


After which, he mixed both the colours using Eye Shadow DB. Look at how pretty the gradient is!
And he lined the model’s eyes using the Super Sharp Liner followed by applying the gel mascara.

 

Kate Rouge EX and Kate Liquid Rouge was used on the lips as well.

 


Following that, you know what’s best? KATE is so super duper considerate, they knew beauty bloggers would definitely love hands-on! And they lovingly provided us with KATE’s full range products to try on!

 


Here’s yours truly trying their awesome eyeshadow db I like it smokeyyyyyyyy hehe. They have the super light eyebrow mascara that’s suitable to blondies as well! And I totally dig that.

 


These are KATE’s widespread of eyeshadows, there’s more actually! Oh ya my sister has plenty of KATE’s eyeshadows and I can steal from her hence I didn’t try on much.

 

 


♥ The face powder, they are so smooth and fine.

 

Invitation… LIVE demo….. Hands on…… Phototaking………. Mini buffet…….. And now what? The bloggers were all given a goodie bag!!!! (I swear it feels like you’re in heaven.)
And hmmmmm what’s in this bag?

 

Tadah! It’s these!

KATE super sharp liner, KATE eye shadow DB, KATE mascara base, KATE long gel mascara.

 


Eye shadow DB. It’s a pallet with 2 shades that can be used individually or mixed, and can be easily blended for a fine gradation. Or you can even create a third color by mixing the two shades for beautiful gradation!

 

Worrying how to blend them on your eyes? Fret not! You can follow their guide closely to achieve a professional look!

 

 


This was on CLEO Nov 2010 issue.

 


THIS IS THE AWESOME-ST THING EVER. I doubt you can find it elsewhere. THE SUPERRRRRRRRRRR SHARP LINER. Trust me, it’s reaaaally good and I can draw nice and sharp ticks at the edge of my eye hehehe good stuff.

 


Black: The thick gel mascara makes your lashes look longer and curl them upward. A smudge resistant and long-lasting mascara!!
White: The mascara base with fiber to make your lashes look thicker and longer, and for maintaining curl.
Apply the white one first followed by the black, your eyelash will be incredibly long + volumized natural eyelashes! I don’t see the need of false lashes! THROW THEM AWAY!!

 

Here’s the photo taken for the contest! With KATE tattoo on my chest somemore, hahaha! Vote for me okay????

Updates/What about insomnia?

My blog is getting advertorial-ish and I bet it’s helluva boring to be reading adverts, adverts and more adverts. I noticed whenever it’s filled with adverts, my stats would decrease drastically. So I’ll blog inbetween adverts to keep it alive. Hehe.

 

But don’t forget to check back daily kay!

 

I’m gonna teach you people how to bake! (After I get all the ingredients and essentials ready first) OOOHYEAH. Or any suggestions on what you wanna bake and what to blog about, kindly drop me an email  wendy.c@live.com

 

And I’m looking for affordable yet good DSLR. Kindly mail me if you know where to get it! Tyvm.

 

 

 

 

Hehe I know my eyelid tape is a tad too hideous hahahhah.
I don’t know why I always couldn’t get those natural-looking eyelid tape and my eyes would always look awkward with it. Why do some people look good with it and not meeeee:(

 

I’m born with double lids but the thing I hate is that its only a thin line!!! And whenever I use the eyelid tape, my eyes would have triple lids. (you can see from the above picture, on my right eye.)

 

Ahhhhhh I need cosmetic surgery!!!! Mainly on my nose(rhino) and bigger lids! I’ve a few mails regarding my nose because they said my nose looks different in the VIDEO HERE. For your information, I haven’t go for the nose surgery. I’m still contemplating because my sis’s face was kinda scary for 1 week after she went for it. LOL.

 

But I wanna be like ANGELABABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

How can anyone be as perfect as her?? HOW CAN. She look so eurasian, so japanese, so hongkongish. LOL. She is the epitome of beautiful. For people whom don’t know who is she, she is a Hong Kong model and artiste. And she’s only 22! OMG JIZZ LOL.

 

I doubt she needs to photoshop any of her pictures! I.AM.SO.JEALOUS:(

 

Kay now, back to the ugly pictures. Hehe.

 

 

I feel really inferior with her picture beside me okay. *hides in a corner* LOL

 

 

 

 

I’m having sleepless nights for quite sometime so I guess that’s Chronic insomnia? Since I graduated I haven’t been sleeping well. It’ll usually takes at least 2 hours for me to fall asleep. Well, that’s really bad for health if one doesn’t sleep well and sleeps late. I wonder is there anyone out there same as me?

 

I’m trying out a few ways of beating insomnia. It helps for me! Perhaps people with the similar issues can try out as well.

·Try to go to sleep at the same time each night and get up at the same time each morning. Try not to take naps during the day because naps may make you less sleepy at night.

·Avoid caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol late in the day. Caffeine and nicotine are stimulants and can keep you from falling asleep. Alcohol can cause waking in the night and interferes with sleep quality.

·Get regular exercise. Try not to exercise close to bedtime because it may stimulate you and make it hard to fall asleep. Experts suggest not exercising for at least three to four hours before the time you go to sleep.

·Don’t eat a heavy meal late in the day. A light snack before bedtime, however, may help you sleep.

·Make your bedroom comfortable. Be sure that it is dark, quiet, and not too warm or too cold. If light is a problem, try a sleeping mask. If noise is a problem, try earplugs, a fan, or a “white noise” machine to cover up the sounds.

·Follow a routine to help you relax before sleep. Read a book, listen to music, or take a bath.

·If you can’t fall asleep and don’t feel drowsy, get up and read or do something that is not overly stimulating until you feel sleepy.

·If you find yourself lying awake worrying about things, try making a to-do list before you go to bed. This may help you to not focus on those worries overnight.

What is so special about Liese?

• First to introduce the latest hairstyling products based on the trends in Japan. They also work with top Japanese hairstylist Hiroki Miyamura, so they are always in the know of the upcoming trends.

• Especially made for Asian hair

• Only brand with the Bubble Foam fashion hair color for ladies in Singapore

• Hairstyling products are numbered according to holding strength. It makes it so easy to choose the right product for me.

• It is the Number 1 brand in Japan

• Packaging is always ultra appealing

• Smell is always divine

 

I am sure most of you heard and seen Liese’s products on the shelves of leading hypermarkets and pharmacies, but how many of you had actually laid your hands on their Color, Treatment and Styling products?

 

MEEEEEEEEEEE!

 

I’m a big fan of Liese’s products(from Color, to Treatment to Styling)!  And this is the reason how I maintain my hair without having to go to the salon so often!

 

Here’s a line-up of Liese’s products!

Hair Color

 

Treatment

 

Style

 

 

What I really like about Liese Clear Cube Wax is that they’re labelled from 01-06 to show the setting power. This made purchases easier unlike other brands when you’ll have to read in detail on which is more suitable for your hair.

 

This time, they have challenged me and a few other bloggers to re-create a hairstyle from their HairStyle Collection. I had to choose 1 hairstyle and try to re-create it. This is the look I am going for, the free-spirited looking bohemian braids

.

.

.

 

So if you’re going for a  first-date with your eye candy, and you wanna look sweet and demure, this hairstyle is your purrrrrrrrrfect choice.

My new diet!

Hi good morning everyone, and the first thing on my mind when I opened my eyes was……

HOLY I HAVEN’T BEEN BLOGGING FOR WEEKS.

So here I am updating a little before starting on KATE and Liese’s advert the next few days.

Now here’s my new diet!

Milk and smoked cheese every morning and night for my weight-gaining diet!
Hehe I doubt you’ve seen anyone so enthu about gaining weight.

I’ve tried the TonyMoly tomato mask recently, and the effect was… miraculous!

All you have to do is to leave on the mask for 3 minutes and wash it off! And the brightening effect is INSTANT.

Bye!
