Leave This Blank:Leave This Blank Too:Do Not Change This:Your email:  Just last week I had the chance to meet Carmen Pretorius, the gorgeous lady who plays the role of Maria Augusta von Trapp in The Sound of Music London West End production.

Day To Night Makeup Look Tutorial

When I watched Wicked, as I previously shared HERE, I was thinking of what makeup look should I go for. I had to go to MAC’s Greening event early in the afternoon, then go straight to an early dinner before watching Wicked. It was a whole day affair. Should I go for a light makeup first then retouch before the show? Or just go all out? I’m quite sure a lot of ladies out there have encountered the same dilemma at one point. For those who go to the office, what’s a safe makeup look that can go for day to night? Since I knew I didn’t have the time to retouch, I just went for a day to night makeup. Here’s the look: For my eyes, I went for semi-smoky eyes. I used darker shades of red and brown, which I also used in my lower lash line for my eyes to pop. I concentrated the deep black brown shadow on the lower half of my lids and blended it upwards. I made it very subtle to avoid looking so made up during the day. This eye shadow trick can be worn in the office too. I made everything else simpler. I skipped the contour and went for highlighter instead. I used brown lipstick, which can be used for day and night. If you wish to glam up...

Pink Makeup Look Tutorial

Don’t be afraid to wear pink makeup – I remember posting about this a couple of months ago. So after trying out pink blushes, are you ready to take a step further? Let’s go all out! I created a makeup look using pink eye shadows and pink lipstick. Wait, before you react, let me show you how it looks… What do you think? The problem with pink eye shadow is that it has the tendency to make your eyes look tired. To avoid this, the shades of pink I used on my eyes are not so light and bright (Barbie pink). It’s a bit on the darker side with a mix of rose and brown shades. I also tapped a small amount of pink shimmer eye shadow at the center of my lids. And for the look to stand out, I went for a matte bright pink lippie! If you’re not yet ready to go all out, you can try a subtle version of pink lipstick or go for nude. Of course, when I say “all out pink”, it still has to be a wearable makeup look. I went for subtle shades of pink for my blush and highlighter. Here are all the products I used: Foundation: MAKE UP FOR EVER HD foundation Concealer: Guerlain concealer Loose Powder: Etude House Zero Sebum Powder Blush and Highlighter: Bobbi Brown Cheek...
