As a beauty blogger, I must say that I didn’t start playing with makeup at a very young age. In fact, my venture into these cosmetic products started when I was around 20-21 years old. When I first started, like any other beginners, I wasn’t very good at it, especially perfecting that flawless winged eyeliner.
After getting the perfect wing, I went into the playful world of eyeshadows. Perhaps it’s because I have that artistic flair, I was pretty good at eyeshadow application for a beginner. I began to get a lot of requests for eyeshadow tutorials and hence, I decided to include a pictorial for a neutral everyday eye makeup at the end of this post!
Well, let’s look into the makeup products you need (in my opinion) if you are just starting out dolling yourself up!
Hello beauties! I know that it’s already a few days past Christmas (Merry belated Christmas!) and it’s probably waaaaaaay too dated for a November 2014 Favourites post but I totally just remembered a few days ago so… here is the post for it!
Well, the month of November for me was pretty much hectic due to the fact that I needed to prepare for my exams, so, much of my favourites in the month were leaning towards essentials and neutrals – makeup items that I wear for me to get out of my house.
I’ve always been a lover of eyeshadows ever since I made contact with them, especially rich hues like the violets, greens and burgundies. I love playing around with the colour spectrum, you may put it, and more often than not when it comes to picking eyeshadow palettes, the brighter and more vibrant shades usually catch my attention faster than the neutrals. However, having exposed to the various collections MAC Cosmetics launched this year, I picked up some things from the MAC x Brooke Shields collection that weren’t what I normally would. It was nice to have a change from the usual – some mature, everyday neutrals to add into my collection. I picked up a lipstick in Gospel and the Mortal Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette.

Honestly, I have never watched nor read anything from The Simpsons series, but I thought this packaging from MAC is really adorable, hence I had to lay my hands on them! 😀 Heard that the collection was selling out fast at all MAC stores in Singapore so I was really happy to be able to purchase these from the US web itself, all thanks to my dear IG friend Sylvia (@syloft
)! Without further ado, let’s look into the items I got!
Just look at the lovely packaging! The palette actually feels heavy, and I mistook it for being metal! Also, I like that the design is printed on, not like a cheap sticker, such quality! I think this may be one of the few collections that I do keep the packaging boxes intact too! 😀
