Taeyeon Inspired Makeup Tutorial | Make Me Love You

Hey, it's May! 
Almost half of the year gone and I thought of updating my Youtube Channel with something different. I have done quite a number of make up tutorials which are something simple and most of the make up are rather wearable, especially for daily use.
With my sister's influence, I have come across some K-pop songs recently, got to know few Korean songs and knowing some of the K-Celebrities.

Taeyeon is one of my favorite singers among all, which is my sister's favorite as well. You know how crazy she goes into Taeyeon, setting her picture as wallpaper, even subscribing to her MV's channel using my Youtube account. LOL

Randomly, Taeyeon's new song popped on my Subscription lists and I started to listen to her very first song - Make Me Love You. I love how she sings so sweetly, with her voice and definitely she's really good in singing.

Here goes my addiction to her song and make up! Yeah! In the music video of Make Me Love You. A scene where she is seated in middle, surrounded by 'a sea of flowers' and in her white flare dress! Her make up is just another boom for me! Love at first sight.
Here goes my inspiration for this Faux Flower Freckles Makeup, inspired by Taeyeon. Making used of the dried flowers given by Braun Buffel LOL
The main focus will be fully on the cheek, with heavy orange-ish blusher, with some pop of tiny flowers as freckles.

Cherry Blossom Makeup | Shizens Visage Collection

Cherry Blossom Makeup
Since Spring is around and cherry flowers are blooming, I am so excited to welcome such a pleasant season, celebrating a new beginning of life. This special season is just the right time for me to share a Cherry Blossom Makeup tutorial with you guys, with Shizens' cosmetics products.
Right in March, Shizens Visage Collection was introduced, with its strong belief behind the brand of bringing out the natural beauty within us from inner to outer, effortlessly, while enhancing one's confidence level, as well as uniqueness.

After a brief introduction of the Shizens Visage Collection, lets jump into the tutorial!
Shizens Natural Pore Nutrient Foundation PRO
On the very first, lets get our skin primed with the Shizens Natural Pore Nutrient Foundation PRO, it helps moisture the face with the essential Vitamin E components while fighting against the pore imperfection. 
On my very first impression, I thought that the Shizens stick foundation will create a completely thick and extreme coverage make up base, just like how the other stick foundation does. Yet, it gives a total different view.

The texture of the Shizens foundation is so lightweight, that it creates a sheer silky finish on my skin, with a touch of moist.
Here's a picture with half face completed with the Shizens foundation and another half without, pure naked face. I was so surprised that the foundation give an amazing natural finish on my skin, moist and natural healthy glow. It even up my skin tone, giving it a radiance complexion.

It does a great job on natural coverage as it slightly covers up my dark circle, pores and some other skin imperfections. My pores are less obvious and my skin is so much smoother. You may apply another layer of foundation under the eyes, in order to fully cover the dark circle, by gently dabbing them into the skin. 

Before moving on to the eyes makeup, I am going to share a bit on the products that will definitely helps in completing our eyes makeup.
Shizens Hue-Duo Eyeshadow
Here goes my very first purely pink shades from Shizens Hue-Duo Eye Shadow (Sepia Pink) . I have never own any only-pink shades eye shadow and this is my very first from Shizens. I am so amazed by its formulation, as the colors pay off so well and vibrant. Surprisingly, the powders are so fine and without much fall out. *thumbs up*
Shizens Aqua Eyeliner
I was totally being cheated by the Shizens Aqua Eyeliner, as I thought it must be the traditional tub of gel eyeliner like what we have been using out there. Instead, it is a cushion type liquid eyeliner! The color is so pigmented and quick drying, it claims to be smudge-proof and long wearing up to 12 hours as well. It glides on the skin smoothly, yet the stroke is not as precise and accurate as the liquid eyeliner in pen shape, as it equipped with a brush, in a much blunt tip instead a sharp tip.
Shizens Smack Lips
Here's the another highlight, which is one of my favorite in this collection - Shizens Smack Lips. It is a liquid lipstick which instantly turn into stunning matte finish. The shade #Orange Tango is just perfect for a cherry blossom look. I really love the matte finish and vibrant color of this Smack Lips collection.
It doesn't fully dry the lips as it still contains coconut oil and sunflower butter that helps to lock in lip's moisture, preventing the lips peeling.
Step 1: After applying the Shizens Natural Pore Nutrient Foundation PRO as makeup base, apply some loose powder under the eyes, that helps prevent the eye makeup from smearing. Yet, do not powder the whole face, as we still need to keep our skin in natural glowy finish. 

Step 2: Apply the light pink shade from Shizens Hue-Duo Eye Shadow on the eyelid. 

Step 3: Apply the darker pink shade (plum) from Shizens Hue-Duo Eye Shadow on the lower lash line. 

Step 4: Draw a thin eyeliner on the upper lash line, filling up the gap within the lashes. 

Step 5: Draw another eyeliner on the lower lash line, about 1/3, extending downward till the outer corner of the eyes, parallel to the upper liner.

Step 6: Complete the cherry blossom look with the Shizens Smack Lips in #OrangeTango.
Here's the finishing look and we are done! I hope you guys love this Cherry Blossom Makeup and enjoy watching my pictorial. 

Here's a good news to share where the Shizens Irresistable Introductory Set is now selling at RM199 instead of RM1503, limited time only, till 31st of May. 
This set including a Smack Lips (Plum Wine & Orange Tango), Aqua Liner (Black & Brown), Hue-Duo Eyeshadow (Mocha Glow) and Shizens Professional Brush Set (6 brushes).

Veet Sensitive Touch | How I trim my Brows

FYI, I am a supportive fans of Veet if you do read my previous post on how Veet has changed my life. I have been using Veet since Form 2 and now I am 24. Yeap, that's a few years haha! Recalled back what I have been through since young, being called hairy and I was really in-confidence in dressing up till I came across Veet.

I am glad that Veet has transformed me and bringing back all the confidence in me. I am not ashamed on how I look now, dressing up in the way I am fond of, just the way I am, just the way I like. 

Finally, Veet has surprised me again by launching its very first innovative device, the Veet Sensitive Touch. Again! Coming out with the best solution that meeting all the women's demand and make hair trimming a breeze. 
Veet Sensitive Touch
Since my hormone is extra strong compare to an usual human being, I am forced to at least trim my brows once or twice a week. I usually trim my brows using the eyebrows razor, being gentle and extra cautiously of not getting a cut.



Packaging

But now, I don't have to worry anymore because Veet Sensitive Touch got me covered!
I was so lucky to be gifted such amazing product which I really looking forward to try out since it was launched earlier. Here am I sharing my thoughts and experiences with you guys.
I really love how they package the styler, in full white with a touch of pink, which enhances the overall feminity of this product, well portraits its claim of sensitive soft touch. The size of the styler is about the size of a electronic toothbrush, convenient and handy with its cylinder tube shape.



Features

Unboxing the box, it contains a beauty styler, including a AA Batery, replaceable trimming head for brows (16mm & 6mm), replaceable bikini trimming head (20mm), a styler cap, two comb attachments, a cleaning brush and a beauty pouch.

How thoughtful that they even come with a pouch! Just good enough to pack everything in it when ever we are planning out for travel.
It's pretty easy to use where you just need to replace your preferred trim head and turn on the device by twisting it at the bottom of the handle.
'' sign indicate to twist open the handle in order to fill or withdraw the battery.
'I' sign indicate turning on.
'O' sign indicate turning off.
Electric Brow Trimmer
An AA battery is good enough to operate the device.




Direction to use
Directions to use:
- Always remember to use on dry skin.
- For brows shaping and trimming, go for the 2 sided trimming head. It can easily reach out both of the larger (chin & side burns) and smaller areas (upper lips) precisely.
- For bikini line shaping and trimming, go for the bikini trimming head. You may add on the comb for your desired length.

How to clean it?
- You may clean it using the cleaning brush by sweeping off the dust and remaining hair.
- You may wash the trimmer head with tap water (not the device) and dry it with a clean cloth.
- Adding 1 - 2 drops of lubricating oil to the blades help prolong its lifetime.




Review
I am so sorry if the below pictures frighten you because I have been suffering from flexural eczema, my eyelid got infected as well :( 
I am under medication recently hence I hope it could really helps in treating such infection.
Back to the review, it is rated at 4 out of 5. 
It is super convenient and I don't even have to worry as there is zero risk on getting a cut! Anyone can pull off a pair of bold brows effortlessly with Veet sensitive touch. With no skills needed, you can easily shape your brows precisely by creating different arches and angles as it is equipped with the two-sided trimmer head, 16mm and 6mm. Yet, you have to be extra aware of not getting your brows chopped LOL

I hold on with one star as the device doesn't fully trim the hair from the end, as it will leave some tiny black spots. Other than that, I don't really like that the device's vibrate volume is rather high.

Veet Sensitive Touch
Benefit            : High precision electric trimmer, quick and gentle trimmer on eyebrows/bikini lines/underarm/upper  lips and chin/sideburns
A box               : Comes with a styler, one two-sided head trimmer for brow, one bikini trimming head, two comb attachments, one styler cap, one cleaning brush and one beauty brush
Retail Price     : RM119

Cushion Routine | Mamonde

Yoohoo! I am back with my cushion routine! 
I guess I have never shared about any blog post or review on cushion before, ever since I started to blog, but yeah, this will be the very first post.

FYI, I don't really put on make up everyday even though I am working (you know, designers always stay indoor), yet I do whenever I am going for a short meeting LOL, just to impress my clients with my pretty presentable face. Instead of waking up early in the morning just to prep myself with foundation and all the continuous steps, I decided to go for something real quick and easy. 
Right in this post, I am going to share about how Mamonde Cover Liquid Cushion and Mamonde Floral Hydro Mist become my life saver, in my cushion routine.





Mamonde Floral Hydro Mist
Mamonde Floral Hydro Mist
Always remember to get your canvas ready (which is your face) before any application of makeup. I used to start up my makeup routine with Mamonde Floral Hydro Mist, just to ensure my face is fully moisturized and it helps enhancing the overall skin texture, as well as skin elasticity.

The main ingredient of Mamonde Floral Hydro Mist is actually the narcissus bulbs extraction, which is renowned with its excellent moisture storage effect, where it helps restoring skin moisture and glow, while sooth the skin.
Unlike all the usual mists that I have used and reviewed, the Mamonde Floral Hydro Mist, in just one pump, it fully covers my face, the outputting mist is surprisingly soft and fine when it attaches to the skin, followed by a light refreshing floral scent.
I was totally amazed by the output mist, it was real delicate and pleasant, like the real mist that we should define, tiny water molecules instead of water droplets, as it can penetrates so much faster and deeper. It really helps sooth and lock-in the moistness in my skin layer, yet there's a con where it leaves my skin with slight stickiness.





Mamonde High Cover Liquid Cushion SPF 34/PA++
Mamonde Cover Liquid Cushion
After restoring skin moisture, Mamonde Cover Liquid Cushion will be the main highlight over my cushion routine.
In order to meet the consumers' concerns and demands, Mamonde has come out with the Cover Liquid Cushion which provides perfect coverage in just a thin layer.
What makes the Cover Liquid Cushion a winning cushion compact:
  • Perfect Coverage with Hyperfine High Cover Powder : Perfectly conceal blemishes, pores and wrinkles.
  • Smooth Fit Coverage with Pomegranate Flower Extracts : Providing 3D Lift Up Solution that helps restoring skin elasticity, combat against skin aging while enhancing the skin texture.
  • Thin Application with Mesh Filtering System : The airless pump design helps controlling the amount of foundation discharge. Just 1 to 2 pumps, is good enough to cover the full face with perfect coverage in just one thin layer, without clumps. (refer picture below)

Mesh Filtering System
Flower Fit Puff
Beside, the 'Flower Fit Puff' is meticulously crafted, in order to give our skin a light finish which perfectly fits into the skin, without leaving any trace of cakeyness behind.
Like what they claim, the texture of the foundation is so fine and velvet, in light glowy finish accompanied by a mild delicate floral scent. It does leave the skin with a little stickiness, yet still bearable. 
On the picture above, it is just a thin layer of the foundation, yet the coverage is significantly great.
Always remember, in just 1 - 2 pumps is god enough to apply the whole face. Else your face will be ended up with thick layering. 
Be gentle and light handed.
Personally I love how the cushion is formulated, as it works really well on the coverage where it fully covers all my skin red blemishes, fine lines, pores and dark circle. I save up some time for concealing those flaws. Since the cushion is formulated for coverage purposes, it doesn't work much on moisturizing, yet it does not dries up my skin till leaving cakey trace. 
I guess it works well in hot, humid weather, especially in Malaysia, as it doesn't turn greasy nor cakey even after long hours. 
Here's the full makeup using Mamonde High Cover Liquid Cover in Shade #21.
I feel that this shade (#21 Cover Peach) is too white for me, even though it falls in the intermediate shade. I hope that Mamonde can come out with more specify shades in the future.
