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!
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? 😉
Christmas is coming, it’s near and I can feel it in my bones! The weather’s getting chilly even though Singapore is Summer all year round. The annual monsoon season (instead of Winter) is here for us in this sunny island and it signifies the coming of the end of the year!
Well, here’s a Christmas Look I did using one of the Holiday collection palettes, the Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette! I know I haven’t done a review on it yet but I am going to jump ahead and go straight into my Christmas Red and Green eye makeup!
This was a collaboration done with my dear friend, Fifi from (@fifiliciousify), and you can check out her look on my Instagram as well as hers!
We all have a boxful or rather, a room-ful of makeup items, don’t we? All the new purchases from the Summer, Fall and the upcoming Christmas/Winter collections are making us spoilt for choices! With so many choices, what if, you could only pick 5 to live for the rest of your life from your makeup collection, what would you pick?
For me, I’m a sucker for eyeshadow palettes, especially from Urban Decay, so I cannot live without my eyeshadows! Hehe, so let’s dig into my 5 choices that I narrowed down! I honestly stared at my stuff, flipped open the drawers and all for so long before I decided on these.
Yes you have it, my holy grail foundation with defined brows, lots of colours to play with, naturally-flushed cheeks and moisturised lips with a healthy pink tint! These are my picks for a perfect face of makeup – no matter whether I’m stranded on the island with nothing else but these 5 items or not! 😀 Vain Roanna is vain!
Hello hello Monday! 🙂
It’s such a lazy Monday for me at home today hence I decided to pick up some of my favourite nude lipsticks to review.
