Valentine’s Day 2015 Date Night Makeup: Pictorial

Valentine's Day 2015 Date Night Makeup
Valentine’s Day is TOMORROW! I am so so excited for a lovely day to be spent with my love and friends! It’s going to be a double date, my first time ever on V-Day! Since tomorrow is going to be a celebration of love, what makeup are you going to sport for a sweet date?
Ladies, if you are going out with your boyfriend, I suggest to not go over the top with your eyeshadows. Guys don’t really like makeup on their girlfriends because they simply love the “au naturel” look. However, if you’re like me and wish to doll up and look pretty in pictures, here are my suggested makeup for that girly, romantic eyes! I have used these products to recreate 2 different looks with pictorials below.
The 2 looks might look similar because essentially, the colours used are rather soft and sweet. However, on closer look, you can spot the differences between the pinks and champagnes used.

January 2015 Beauty Favourites: Review

January 2015 Beauty Favourites
Wow. January passed by like a breeze! I was still reminiscing my Aussie trips from December last year and now we’re stepping into February already! For the whole of January, I was busy trying to recover and save my skin from the nasty outbreak after I came back from my vacations, hence my focus was primarily on skincare. I think this is also probably the first time I have no eyeshadow palettes in my favourites, with my New Year resolution of trying to rotate and use more of all my makeup.
Without further ado, let’s dig into my January 2015 Beauty Favourites!

2014 Beauty Favourites: A Highlight on My Favourite Products

2014 Beauty Favourites
The year 2014 has indeed been an eventful year for me. Through this year, I experienced several things that made me grow as a person, including falling back in love again (and cherishing what I failed to), graduating from school, travelling solo (kind of because I was exploring Sydney pretty much on my own for the most part) and learning how to travel with my family now that everyone has grown up. Not forgetting the fact that creating @paradeoflove made me explore my interests more and made me new friends too. I’m thankful for the opportunities that came by as well, allowing ParadeOfLove to grow further. To sum up, 2014 was nothing short of amazing 🙂
Anyway, here’s a round up of my 2014 Beauty Favourites – a highlight into the products that I have been using and loving for the year. The products may or may not be launched in 2014 because this is a round up of my personal beauty picks for the year.

We’ll start from the face products, going in order of a typical makeup routine, shall we? 😉
