Makeup, shopping, food and friends ...

Today I almost wanted to do a Black/Grey look but in the end, I still chicken out and went out with the usual Brown Smokey. But today my hand is not as heavy handed and my brother commented that the makeup SUXS! WTF!! He say the staffs in The Face Shop does a BETTER job than me! WTF, how can compare me with the PROS! Not forgetting all the BIG European brands; Miumiu, LV, Prada, Armani, Burberrys etc etc ...Today itinerary, ION Orchard! OMG, it is so huge, I almost got lost in it. And of course I have to VISIT, Asia Largest Sephora?? Alot of the popular USA branded items are there; Burts & Bee, Too Faced Insurance, Bare Essentuals, POP beauty etc ...So me the HDB tai-tai, got to leave the place empty handed. :(
Whatever happen, my friends won't let me go STOMACH-empty!! 3 girls but we ordered like there are 6 of us!! ION's food places are JAM PACKED with people, so we went over to Wheellock to have Sakae Sushi!KL's grand-dad pass away 2 days ago, we met up with Ser n Sis for the funeral at Lavendar and of course, no matter how tired, DIE DIE we need to have a conclusion 'la kopi' session to catch up for the WEEK's gossip!! EVEN NO GOSSIP, we sit and stare at each other for the next 2hrs also happy!!
Hahahahaha!

But then in her blog it noted that Gel Liner can be used, and I brought back MOST of my gel liner! So maybe I can try a normal usual look. Not as polished or creative BUT then, it is my hardwork mah. At least try hor kekeke ~
Had a hard time controlling the brush with the gel liner.

Moisturiser and Emulsion - Watson and The Face Shop


Haiyo, my stupid habit come back again!
Keep buying face moisturiser to use back here in SG. At currently, the 2 NEW moisturiser I am using; Watson's Birdnest Essence Moisturiser and The Face Shop Eco Vert Daily Moisturiser.

I bought this in Bangkok, cannot remember how much but it should be about SGD10.00. I tried the Watson's Bird Nest Essence Mask, and LIKED it ALOT! OMG, the mask is very hydrating. It is LIFE SAVING for me when I am in Bangkok because the ROOM is very DRY and my face wake up with VERY DEEP wrinkle EVERYDAY till I used the MASK. That is why I decide to buy the moisturiser for daily use ...

The moisturiser are more like Emulsion then the usual creamy lotion. So it is MY kinda of moisturiser and furthermore this is in the PUMP type, more hygienic, I LIKE! Itchy backside and went and gotten myself another brand of daily moisturiser to use to complement the other bottle. I usually like a variety of moisturiser to use. Hahaha, CROSS using will 'confuse' my skin so that it won't be immune to any particular brand, hahahaha ~

I went in and just ask whether THE FACE SHOP has any moisturiser in PUMP bottles, and there is ONLY one type of moisturiser in the PUMP bottle! Bleah ~ Ya, I am that anal, but usually moisturiser in PUMP bottles last longer with me.

I was told that this emulsion is Organic and best for people with sensitive skin or eczema and cost me SGD47.90 after a 20% discount. Alot of Bombastic words here, and damn alot of different extract!! Hopefully I am not allergic to any of these extracts, keke ...Will update on my bad habit of hogging moisturiser in my Sg home soon ...

Baby, babies AND more babies in July!!!

Purple comes easy to me, it seems like purple is a rather easy colour to match without 'crashing' with what i am wearing... Today is Baby 1st Month Baby shower for Xtine and TY 2nd Girl Alyssa. But we don't care, it is more like our own mini gathering hur hur hur ...
And there are alot of Monster crawling and toddling about. I Love my brother Nikon N60, I took some amazing photos with my amatuer skills. Babies are such good 'model' for photo taking. They really give some incredible 'REAL' expression! But by the 2nd hour, all my eye makeup are stuck to the CAMERA! Hahahaha ~~~
The 2 new main character of the day, left is Alyssa one month old. And on the right is Bing Bing, we be visiting at the later part of the day ...
A group photo at TJ home, she is still doing her One Month Recovery ...
The group of us left to the airport to fetch another friend home ...

A long and tiring day for me!!

2009 Bangkok Day 4

Heeee finally is Pratunam Market and Platinum Mall!!
So today I very HAPPY, wahahahaha ~

We start with the Old non-aircon Pratunam Market first as always ...
And HY attack Lesportsac lookalike first. The quality of the lookalike does not lose out to the Original!! Sometimes their design looks better too hahahaha, and at that PRICE. WHY NOT!? (250 Baht/USD7)

Wooooo Little Miss Sunshine (60Baht/USD1.80 for Wholesale). Boss say if we show him the picture next year, we get DISCOUNT!!!
YEAH! We spent about 4hrs here before we left for lunch opposite the street at Pantip Plaza (IT area).

A&W of course!! Singaporeans go crazy for A&W, erm I don't know why! But I love their Waffles!! Cheap and Crispy ~

Not much photos at Platinum Mall, but we had a small break at a cafe, and continue afterwards till 7pm before we proceed to Siam area for Dinner at a local restaurant!
All VERY LOCAL dishes!!
My buys today. Not much too as compared to previous years that I have been to Bangkok!
Hmmmm, really regretted! I should have gotten more tops!

Hopefully I can go again, NEXT year! Hmmmm, it would be better my hubby can bring me for a second round shopping before I go back to USA!

Got to rest early tonight, EARLY flight tomorrow.
Got to leave hotel 6.30am!

2009 Bangkok Day 3

Today is Chatuchak.
Of course we need to have a HEAVY breakfast here, it is usually hard to find FOOD in Chatuchak especially with my lousy stomach! So the breakfast usually will last us till DINNER.Chatuchak always have something special that you cannot get in Pratunam. So it is a stop that my friends have to make because usually you do not have to buy wholesale here, BUT it will be cheaper if u get wholesale of course!!
Surprising not much people although we are here quite late, about 10+am! Usually at this timing, the whole stretch will be damn crowded, it be difficult even to walk to the entrance!!And the battle begin ...Stopping at a 'designer' cafe for Cha Yen (Thai Iced Tea)
Look scary right!
But only what is behind me is mine, the rest are my buddies!! Not much, because I don't really like to shop in Chatuchak, there are alot of theft to beware of and it is very warm and humid inside ctc. I don't like!!
But the the dinner CURE all aches, and headache. A very recommended restaurant in Bangkok near our Hotel, Lek's Restaurant.
The seafood is cheap and YUMMY! I don't mind eating here EVERYDAY!
My most highly recommended is the Pork Vermicilli and the Fresh Steam Garouper (360baht/USD10)!
YESH it is so cheap, I don't mind coming everyday just to have the fresh steam fish!!
Long day, ANOTHER battle tomorrow at Pratunam Market and Platinum Mall!
WATCH OUT!!

2009 Bangkok Day 1

Bangkok is really a heaven for SHOPPING, EATING and MASSAGE!

Lunch ...Dinner

Only the first day, SO I am still very well controlled. Each year, a group of us girlfriends would just FLY ourselves to Bangkok to get Wacoal Bra. It is so much cheaper in Bangkok. One Wacoal bra is average USD16 - USD20. And with my ODD size breast there is not much 'choice' I can find. And usually I just stock up the same old bra, hahaha @ about USD15.00! CHEAP CHEAP~~

Oh and their contact lens are also very cheap, usually I top up alot of boxes but these year I cut back alot because I am considering Lasik. One Box of 30pc Focus Daily for about SGD19.00 (USD12.50), CHEAP!

Oh how can we forget NARAYA, these are Japanese and HK favorite and selling DAMN cheap there. I usually get their small pouches for my cosmetics. These larger bags are for a friend and mom. :)

Watson Bird Nest Mask 89Baht for 2pc. WTH, I need the 'moisture' for the NEXT few days of battle!!

Darker than expected ~

Using the same Lumiere Dirty Blonde but using EDM Smokey in the OuterV and the whole look changes. It becomes a smokey grey rather than a 'brown'. Maybe I am too heavy handed today. Still prefer the previous Lumiere Dirty Blonde with Lumiere Charcoal.
Base:
Coastalscent White Gel Liner

Lid:
Lumiere Dirty Blonde (Upperlid/Outer V)
Lumiere Vanilla bean (Inner lid)
EDM Smokey (Outer V)

Highlight:
Signature Mineral Soft Sun

Eye Liner:
Coastalscent Black Gel Liner
Didn't expect it to turn out that 'Dark' and 'Smokey' ...
I am really TOO TOO TOO TOO stubborn! Lighten, lighten LIGHTEN! Don't challenge the 'weather' in Singapore!!

Raspberry Smoke!

Please ignore my face, just practising using a fluff blending brush on the OuterV on my eye!

I am so bored at home, and thought that I should continue to practise my skill. And this time round I tried the method Makeupgeek usually use to create the outerV with Coastalscent Chisel Fluff/Pointed Crease Duet. The OuterV really looks so much softer using that method.
Base :
Coastalscents Gel Liner white

Lid :
Everyday Mineral Lavender Concealer
TKB Trading Raspberry Pop
Everyday Mineral Smokey

Highlight :
Everyday Mineral Lavender Concealer

Liner :
Coastalscents Gel Liner Black
I always wonder how a reddish smokey look will present on me, so here it goes ...
One point missing, at 4.1) Line 2/3vlower lid with EDM Smokey.Yay, I finally learnt the 2method of creating the OuterV, and this second method really soften and fully blend the OuterV flawlessly! Heeee, need more practise ...

Surprising this look good with Spectacle! I always thought, people look silly in makeup when they are wearing glasses. But then, this sure look like the 'Teacher' has some other 'Naughty Part time' Job at night ...

x.o.x.o

Neutral smokey Dirty Blonde

I am going for Singapore National Day Parade Rehearsal, and was going to wear a RED Polo Tee. So I have chosen to do a more neutral colour, so I don't look so 'Wayang' ...

No tutorial today, need the battery power!
Base
Coastalscent White Gel Liner

Lid
Lumiere Dirty Blonde (Upperlid/Outer V)
Lumiere Vanilla bean (Inner lid>
Lumiere Charcoal (Outer V)

Highlight
Signature Mineral Soft Sun

Eye Liner
Coastalscent Black Gel Liner

As usual I don't really like the effect on me as in REALITY, but when I take picture with it, it actually look quite alright and neutral. Make me look so boney because of the 'browns' contouring my eye and face ...
Guess what, the makeup starts to melt even BEFORE I reach the stadium. And I already look like a WALKING PANDA in RED. WTF!! Lucky the organiser issued some wet tissue, and I try to swipe the smurkey lower lid smudge away, and dap some powder to cover up!If not I really has got to wear that sunglass for the WHOLE event which lasted till about 9pm!!
Stubborn ME, NO MORE MAKEUP for such 'HOT and sticky' event!!
