Bright and Sunny, Makeup and Shopping!

Jane Cosmetics All Be Pure® Minerals Quad Bronzer.
Now that my skill has improved a little, I tried to use this ALL in ONE again! Very light and neutral, doesn't really show on Photos, but still I think it is a OK neutral everyday look. This IS how I do it ...
Today is REALLY REALLY very hot, ooohhhh Burning HOT ...
But STILL any kind of day is a good day for SHOPPING! Today we visited the Allen Premium Outlet and the drove over to the new Allen Village opposite the Outlet.
My buy of the days, NOT MUCH but still I HAVE to get something back.
Bad habit of shopping!
A birthday Gift for hubby's mom. Don't know she like it or not. But I luff it too wor! NOOOOOOO, I just bought a Gucci, REMEMBER? This is for the hubby's Mom!
Nice hor?

Waxahachie: Scarborough Faire Renaissance Festival

Today I did the 3 Tone - white, yellow, brown that I have done last week. Usually if I need to REALLY go out that day, I won't dare to try a new combinations! Hahahaha, no time to RE-DO, if there is any mistakes!

Not much mistakes today. So smoothly I finished my makeup in a total of 30minutes which include cleansing, moisturising as well. Need to practise to SPEED things UP! We took a one hour drive to arrive a Waxahachie, Scarborough Faire Renaissance Festival .
Below is my favourite picture of the day from almost 300 pictures ...

Clay Mask; French Green, Sea and Glacial

I finally find a chance to use the Clay I bought sometime ago.
I added; 1tsp of Glacial, French Green Clay and Sea Clay each, and 1 Drop of tea tree oil. And 2 tsp of distilled water. After applying I discover that there are still SOME MORE for another face and my hubby have to try it with me hur hur hur ... He was resisting but I tell him if he don't do it I will have to try it away and he don't want to waste it!!

I applied using my finger and while waiting for the clay to dry up, it feels like the clay begin TIGHTENING up the WHOLE face. It felt like the CLAY SUCKING out all the toxins and dirts of the skin surface!!

After about 20minutes the clay is all DRY UP and after removing there is some reddish reaction on my nose and cheek. I guess this mixture is too drying for my face. But there is No itch or any other sensation. Overall, the face felt smooth, clean and powdery. I applied my moisturiser immediately after.
This MUD will be extremely useful for people who has OILIER skin. I really SUCKED out all the oil on your face! Hubby commented it did make his face felt less oily. I don't think it helps with the black heads, but I guess the sucking feeling felt like it is closing up your pores! I will try individual clay the next time round. The 3 combinations are too fierce for my Dry skin but perfect for my hubby face ...

During application, my THOUGHT, OMG it is PURE *atas* MUD on me.
Not diluted in anyway, PURE MUD!!
Hahahaha, felt so *atas*
Should add my aloe vera gel, and jojoba oil, forgotten about them.

More reviews of this to come ...

3 Tone - white, yellow, brown ...

I am so glad I start doing such 'Drama' eye cosmetics at my age now. If I have done this kinda of makeup 10years ago, it would make me look so mature. And now doing this kind of makeup suit my age so much more ...
No one can say the makeup look so old, because I am at 'that' age NOW.

Today's theme is Smokey Yellow?
A little light, A little bright and alittle smokey by the side ...

Base :
NYX Jumbo Pencil Cottage Cheese
Coastal scents 24K Gel liner

Highlight:
Signature Mineral Soft Sun

Eye Shadow :
Everyday Mineral Aussie Perk Me Up (EDM APMU)
TKB Trading Lemon Drop
Everyday Mineral In The Garden
Canmake Metallic White

Eye Liner:
Coastalscents Brown
Oddly I think YELLOW suits me too ... My step-by-step card!
Put so much blush on my cheek, but still the colour doesn't really show. Does it means good or bad when you cannot 'see' the COLOURS you put on the face, hahahaha~
Verdict : PASS!
But could have done better to make the colour more flawless. Example, better brush? Better Primer? Or more Patience? Hmmmm, don't know neh! Two side of my eye are of different shape, it is so difficult to equalised them! That stupid FATTY lid!

Anyway I am so glad by my progress, from initial one colour to 2 colour and now 3 COLOURS! Progress ... ...

Messy Greys on a gray gray rainy day ...

GREY! The colour I SOOOOOOO wanted to try again!
And since, I have a original plan that I have cancelled and I have no particular place to go to.
GREY IT IS!
Base :
NYX Jumbo Pencil Pots and Pans

Eye Shadow :
TKB Trading Antique Silver Grey
Lumiere Charcoal
Lumiere Glass Slipper (Sparkle)

Highlight :
Lumiere Whisper Gray

Step by step card!
Nice?
I quite like, but erm not suitable for a DAY look. In reality this look rather smokey and 'messy' for a day look!! Hahaha, people must think that I am MAD! Oh, and you have to USE really GOOD PRIMER for such look, if not the colour might just smudge into one GREY MESS! If there is any Too Face Insurance Eye Primer, I guess I be getting it!! It is time for a upgrade. My skill has a very obvious improvement!!

White base, strawberry Pink!

Today I actually has DONE the makeup twice, and the first Version was BEING washed away and RE-DO another time to reach this current version. AND, this version of PINK, I likey!
Base :
Coastalscents White Gel Liner

Eye shadow :
Lurebeauty Flesh
Everyday Minerals Cherry Flesh
Everyday Minerals Deep Tan (ignore)
TKB Trading Strawberry Pop
The process of doing up is getting easier and easier for me, the problem now is matching the colours and how the colour will look ON my skin. And how the colour would change when mixed and blended. Some colour might look dull but actually be rather dark. Some DARK colour might be rather light. And sometime when 2 colour mix, they changes. So I guess it is all down to trial and error.
How, is it nice?
Nevermind, I likey ...
But still people might laugh at me because the colour would remind them of a 花旦.Anyway MY Verdict:
成功!

The colour of the turqoise sandals are more bluish to turqoish. Overall goodbuy, pictures shown are very true to what you are getting!

Sandals size are true to size too!
I am 6.5 and 6.5 they are! My only complain is the slow shipping, it took over 7days, my ae.com order was so much later but came on the same day as amiclubwear.com. Nevertheless a trustworthy site to buy from.

No complains, fast shipping.
And sizing is all good!
Happy buys ...
YQ very satisfied with his boardshorts and tee and is preparing to go surfing already!

2 Colour : TKB Trading Smokey XXX and Lure Beauty Flesh

I thought TKB Trading Smokey was a sort of reddish brownish smokey, but it turns out to BE PURPLISH!
So weird ... And I keep wanting to create a smokey purple, and here LIES the smokey purple.
This look is more like the look of 伍咏薇 eye make-up in '緣來自有機' that I want to re-create.
I think I got it finally.
This should be the proper method of pressing the colour on the lid and blending it out lightly. And the colour are more evenly blended out.
Hmmmmm, finally ...
Right or wrong, as long as try and try, one of these day I am bound to GET IT!

Verdict:
Although I don't know what I am doing but this I LIKE!成功!

FAIL attempt - Ashy Smokey purple ...


I really really like 伍咏薇 eye make-up in 緣來自有機.
Very light smokey grey, looks mature and very alluring and light enough for everyday use hor. But I still like PURPLE laarrrr hahaha...
Eyeshadow colour : TKB Pure Purple, TKB Silver Antique and TKB Ivory Lace
Eyeshadow Base : NYX Pots and Pans
Eye Liner : Jane Be Pure Gel Liner
Heee tutorial card.
Cannot say is tutorial, rather what is my step-by-step ...
FAIL FAIL FAIL, hahahaha ...
The colours are all eaten by the camera, the whole colour really look so much brighter in real life. I think I am TOO FAIR and the light did not BOUNCE off my face, it is ABSORB by my face!

Alright try another setting ...
Hahahaha my make up always look so UNFINISHED! Please be reminded, I only doing a trial and error, not going out with the makeup, this look so UNFINISHED, hahaha~ Pardon me alright!

Lazy me!

VERDICT:
TOTALLY fail, doesn't look so much difference with the previous purple hahahaha!.
Never mind try again tomorrow, with just the grays! Or maybe I shouldn't add POTS and PANS, should use a black colour for the base to achieve the 'Smokey' Effect ...

It is NOT THE END, I really 不甘心. AND added MORE black to outcrease and MORE Pure Purple above crease AND blend blend blend ...In the end become DARK smokey purple, So Rocker Chick right!?
