Makeup Tricks!

You don’t have to spend hours in front of a mirror to get your makeup perfect. There are all kinds of little tricks you can use that will make applying cosmetics much easier and ensure that you always have the look you are going for. These tips will change your life!

1. Make Eye Shadow Stand Out With White Eyeliner

If you really want your eye shadow color to pop, use this trick. Apply white eyeliner all over your eyelid. Then apply your favorite shadow. The white will help to intensify the color.


2. Easy Smoky Eye Makeup

With your eyeliner, draw a slanted hashtag at the outer corner of each eye. Blend it in with the rest of your eye makeup. You get that smoky look without a lot of work.


3. Create Natural Contouring

It can be difficult to figure out where to put blush or bronzer for contouring. The easy way is to use your eyeliner pencil, or even a makeup brush handle. Place the straight edge directly below your cheekbone to get the right angle.


4. Create a Perfect Cupid’s Bow

Use your lip liner (same shade as your lipstick) to draw an “X” on your upper lip. Apply your lipstick, using the “X” as a guide. You will have the perfect pout.p1030568_fotor_collage_fotor1

5. Cover Up Puffy Eyes and Dark Circles

Forget about dotting your concealer. Instead, apply it in a triangle shape, with the base at your lash line and the tip at the bottom of your cheek. This will hide redness beneath the eyes, and brighten up your whole face.b1365e40-aa9a-4205-9d17-267ad3106e60

6. Plump Up Your Lashes

Don’t bother with expensive lash-pumping mascaras. Instead, dust some translucent powder on your lashes between coats. This will make your lashes look much fuller.1400325628732

7. Use Gel Eyebrow Pencils for Contouring

Mark the areas to contour with a dark-colored gel eyebrow pencil. You can easily smudge and blend this makeup for perfect contouring. Finish the look with an all-over cream highlighter on your cheekbones, the center of your forehead, and the Cupid’s bow.53a06b6f457ea_-_cos-01-contour-de

8. Get the perfect lash curl with this technique

9. Easy Eyelash Glue Application

Applying eyelash glue can be so tricky. Make it easier by putting the glue on a bobby pin. Apply the glue with the tip of the bobby pin for a more even and quicker application.sev20-bobby-pin-flipbook-de-26708119

10. No More Mascara on Upper Eyelids

Use your spoon for this trick. Hold the rounded part against your upper eyelids while applying mascara. The excess mascara will go onto the spoon and not your eyelids. 070dda45-d85c-4ebc-b3fd-088a7024b5c4

Mirabella Skincare set’s packaging is really impressive with the design of its attractive cover! There are cleanser, UV Cream and Beauty Cream inside the box which is 600ml,5gm and 5gm respectively. I personally l would like to use the Mirabella Cleanser compared to the others! Mirabella Cleanser is not only about cleansing your face and getting rid of pore clogged, it serves the purpose to remove your excess make-up .Therefore it would be quite convenient to use after the day especially I am always putting less effort at make-up removal.



Mirabella UV cream is in orange color, well, don’t be cheated by the light orange color! When you apply the orange-cream on your hand and rub it gently, your skin will become what have shown in the picture as above. It can be used as make-up base as well.12

Mirabella beauty cream is another product to feel your skin well hydrated, it leaves your skin feeling young and fresh. I would recommend to use this beauty cream before bedtime instead of using it in the evening. 1

Seborrhea  Liquid (Shampoo Type) gives your hair scalp a relief. This would be suitable for people with sensitive hair-scalp as it is formulated with zinc pyrithione, climbazole,hydrolyzed yeast protein complex, salicyclic Acid, and  Ammonium Glycyrrhizate.

1Its milky texture used to soothe skin irritations and cool down the sensitive scalps. It gently cleanses the hair, provide the hair another fresh-look as well as regulate the PH levels! Besides, the size of product which is in 120ml easy to carry everywhere as I am always travelling.

2After the bath, my hair is no longer oily! I would definitely recommend this kind of hair shampoo as I do not need to repeat to wash my hair twice a day. In fact, Seborrhea Liquid keep me away from the oily hair for whole day, at least. For those who have greasy hair, Seborrhea Liquid will be your ideal choice for hair shampoo!

October 13th: No Bra Day!

It is October 13th! Time to set the tatas free girls! Ladies, free your breasts for 24 hours by removing those dreadful (but at times oh-so-helpful) bras. Our perkiness should not be hidden. It is time that the world see what we were blessed with. Your breasts might be colossal, adorable, miniature, full, jiggly, sensitive, glistening, bouncy, smooth, tender, plump, fun, silky, Jello-like, but the most used adjectives to describe your breasts today should be joyous, wild, and spectacular!

1This day was created for a reason and that is to raise awareness about a very important cause – Breast Cancer. Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in women. Despite the many advances in cancer treatment and great progress over the years, the cause of breast cancer is still unknown. Finding cancer early by regular self-exams and mammograms can save your life. Know the known risks and talk to your doctor about scheduling a mammogram.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month helps raise awareness and supports breast cancer research, and also honors those who have lost the fight. Whether or not you plan to participate in No Bra Day by going braless today, the fight against cancer continues.

Gentlemen, you can participate too! Your job will be to support the ladies by rocking something purple. It can be a purple tie, purple boxers, purple socks anything purple!

Beauty (HiShop Review Campaign): L’Egere and Purevivi

Happy hump day! Bummer to be back in school and work today huh? Here’s some goodies to share with you and make the day a little more bearable! Seriously love HiShop for sending me these awesome beauty products.

L’Egere Magic Water Cool Aqua Powder
Koreans seriously have the most innovative ideas because this product really blew my mind as it’s the first time I’m seeing something like this. The L’Egere Magic Water Aqua Cool Powder is no ordinary powder despite the ordinary packaging.
This compact 9g powder comes in a typical finishing powder jar with two sponges given in case the first one gets lost or dirty. The jar is really lightweight so it’s convenient to bring it out with you!
Wondering what’s an AQUA COOL POWDER and what makes this powder so special?
1. Patented Water Soothing Technology
When applied on the skin, the powder instantly transforms into water soothing molecules for a cooling experience. This technology is similar to the Magic Aqua Essence-In CC Cream I talked about previously. This technology retains about 60% of moisture within the powder to double the moisturising effect and make sure your makeup doesn’t budge.
2. Pore Treatment
The super fine particles can effectively control oily skin and tighten pores and skin to give you perfect, crystal-clear makeup.
3. Highly Moisturising
The main ingredients, Vitamin B5 & lecithin can maintain the skin’s elasticity and gloss to provide highly effective moisturising performance.
4. Whitening & Anti-Aging
There is a well-known whitening ingredient AA2G that can effectively restrain the accumulation of dark pigments and give the skin a rosy-white outlook. The natural tea leaves extract used prevents oxidation and protects against environmental damage.
5. Brilliant Gloss
The ultra fine powders conceals small wrinkles, pores and imprefections while the brightening particles allow the skin to have a shiny healthy gloss from every angle.
Peel off the two plastic layers stuck there for hygiene purposes.
The powder is so so fine! It is advisable to use the puff or a brush as it helps control the usage better than fingers. There is only one shade available. Try and keep the cap closed when you’re not using it to avoid the powder from flying all over. For best result, store the powder in a cool, dark place and keep it away from children’s reach.
I was so pleasantly surprised when I applied the powder on my hand! It’s a sensation I’ve never experienced before. The super fine powder suddenly transforms into a watery-like texture and feels cooling on the back of my hand. It does require a bit more blending as you can see the powder does settle into the fine lines of my hand.
I thought it was a good idea to use the mirrored cover as a mirror to apply this powder on. Use the powder puff provided and pat it on. You can adjust the amount you need first on the back of your hand before gently applying it to the face for a perfect, long lasting make-up base.
Testing on the back of the hand first has another use which is to test for sensitivity. Do not use on sensitive or troubled skin. Cease use immediately and seek advice from a dermatologist should and complications occur.
Initially I thought the product was used as a finishing powder but then I realized that it’s a makeup base. This is something new to me cos most makeup bases are liquid right? The powder leaves a natural-looking matte finish which I really like.
Even though the finishing is matte, the powder does not dry out the skin AT ALL. I have dry skin around my nose and sides of my mouth but I really love using the L’Egere Magic Water Aqua Cool Powder! It’s magic alright – to feel the fine powder magically transform into a liquidy, blendable base upon contact with the skin.
The cooling sensation is really pleasant and the brightening effect and oil-control is amazing! I can’t say much for the tightening, coverage and staying power of it but the fun of using this product is enough to offset those glitches
The combination of the L’Egere Magic Aqua Essence-In CC Cream and this powder is the perfect match in my opinion, especially for people with dry skin. You can purchase the L’Egere Magic Water Aqua Cool PowderHERE at a discounted price of RM78 for 5g.
Alovivi Purevivi Cleansing Lotion
I actually ran out of makeup remover a few weeks ago and was contemplating which new one should I buy when HiShop somehow read my mind and sent me this huge bottle! You’re my fairy godmother.
Have you ever tried oil-based or soap-based makeup remover? For me, I don’t really fancy it as I dislike the sticky oily feeling that it leaves behind. I just feel so.. unclean, especially after using soap-based removers as I’ll be paranoid wondering if I’ve washed off all the soapy residue on my face. Double cleansing is mandatory but the most important step of removing your makeup is still the initial stages right?
PureVivi is a product from Japan and frankly, who doesn’t love anything from Japan? :p I was so excited to get my hands on this as I heard that they are selling like hot cakes now in Thailand and Taiwan now! Apparently it’s newly launched in Malaysia and thankfully, HiShop carries it. This makeup remover is no ordinary remover. It is a low stimulus cleansing lotion, with added moisturising functions. After thoroughly and gently remove ever trace of your makep & grime, your skin will be left soft, hydrated and refreshed.
Thank God for this sticker because after peeling off the plastic layer, there were only incoherent Japanese instructions lol. This cleansing lotion contains NO surfactant, flavouring and fragrance, colouring and is paraben, alcohol and oil-free. The ingredients used are mostly natural ingredients such as aloe vera, lime, apple, grapefruit, orange and barley extract. Plus, it looks exactly like water so you can imagine just how pure and gentle this will feel on your skin! It is suitable for all skin types and can remove every last trace of your makeup including lipstick, mascara, eyeliner and even the glue of your falsies! Not only does it remove dirt and makeup, it pacifies and moisturises the skin at the same time.
I actually took these photos after my photoshoot for La Vie En Rose. Make up done by my dear Audrey! It’s my first time using double eyelid tape and second time trying on falsies. I hardly ever have such thick makeup on so I thought this would be the perfect chance to try out this much-raved about cleansing lotion.
I applied some foundation and drew some lipstick, eyeliner and waterproof mascara on my hand before using the transparent remover to wipe it off.
In a single gentle motion, it has managed to remove a sufficient amount of the makeup off my hand. Whoa, will it work so well on my face?
To use, just pour an adequate amount onto a cotton pad.
Then swipe it over your face gently until all traces of makeup is removed. For heavier makeup such as removing mascara, it is recommended to leave the cotton pad on for a few more seconds for easy removal. No rinsing is required if it’s for touching up.
With one swipe, you can see that the makeup remover has effectively removed half of my eye makeup. It even removed my double eyelid tape and glue of my falsh eyelashes without leaving any residue. It doesn’t work as well as on my hand of course, but that is to be expected because you’ve got to be extra gentle when using it on sensitive eye area. Remember to use a new cotton pad for each part of your face or once the cotton pad is dirty. You wouldn’t want to transfer gunk from other parts to all over your face, would you?
Sorry for the scary contact lenses lol.
Clean, no-makeup selfie! Now you can see all my imperfections but heck, I’m so happy with the results! In total I used about 4 cotton pads to remove my eye makeup and foundation. Normally I struggle to remove my mascara but not with the Purevivi Cleansing Lotion. Yes, it even removed my waterproof mascara clean off! For something that requires only minimal effort and time, this cleansing lotion is definitely strong and effective in removing every bit of makeup. Best part is, it doesn’t leave the oily feeling that I dislike after using makeup remover. Oh yea, the scent reminds me of cake for some reason! HAHA.
My cousin used this too when she came to stayover and she was like, “I’m so gonna get a bottle for myself too!” The bottle is huge and not at all travel-friendly but ahem, makeup remover wipes hello? It’s a worthy investment as this half a litre bottle can last you quite awhile, plus it’s priced at RM48.90?It is so affordable! I know other water-based makeup removers will cost you loads more! You can find the single bottle HERE and for a better deal, get the twin pack for RM78 here!
