❅❅ MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! ❅❅
It's that time of the year again! The festive season that's filled with joy, love, excitement and anticipation of annual holiday party, gift exchange, family gathering, and other merry celebration. While everyone is busy working on the dazzling, shimmery & sparkling eye makeup ideas, I'm trying my best to look a little dolly and cutesy this time.
Before sharing the makeup tutorial that'll literally transform you into a irresistibly adorable living doll, I've a real life story to share. A funny one indeed.
So I was enjoying dinner at a Vietnamese restaurant with Chean last Friday night after testing & documenting the "Cotton Candy" makeup which I'm about to show you, ya, with the full makeup on and a super casual & simple outfit--a Nike sweater & an old pair of jeans. As usual, we ordered our favorite pho, and were busy stuffing ourselves. Then here comes the most awkward moment, there's this ang moh suddenly approaching me saying:
"I thought you are very pretty, do you mind if I..." Then he pulled out his phone asking for my phone number. He talked so loud and I bet most of the customers unwillingly overheard it.
I was shocked (I thought he was asking for $$), with a mouthful of veggie, tofu and pho, and Chean was furious; he said "NO" & "SORRY" in a real pissed-off tone right before I manage to refuse the ang moh's random request. So the ang moh left, and I looked at Chean and said elatedly...
It must be the M.A.K.E.U.P that made me appear to be decisively young & attractive that day, I'm pretty convinced about that!!! That is why I'm so eager to share this with you ❤❤
Everyone well-deserved to look cute this holiday season!
Here are some of the products I used to create this easily-achieved dolly look:
#2 For the eye
From top to bottom:
-- Fasio Mascara Base (apply on lower eyelashes)
-- Dior Show Mascara
-- Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil (as eyeliner)
#3 Opt for a natural falsie instead of a dramatic one.
I bought this pair from Taiwan and am recycling them in this tutorial; I pathetically forgot the brand and lost its original casing, sigh, they are so good. I'm trying my luck to search for a similar one online T______T You could try Maybeline Natural Lashes at the moment, I love that too.
#4 e.l.f Blush (Pink Passion) and Wet n Wild Lipstick (520E).
As for the powder eye shadow, I'm using Coastal Scent 88 Warm Palette again.
#6 Beige powder shadow.
#8 Metallic gold powder shadow.
#10 Dark golden brown powder shadow.
Now, the very critical step of this look! Attention please~~
#13 Abandoned the traditional blush technique, bring it closer to your under eye area and work up & outward to create the adorable baby face effect...
#14 Look closer~~
Lastly, complete this look by applying a very light touch of red lipstick, think matte and forget about lip gloss.
Y.A.Y!!! We are officially done ❤❤
#17 Hi 5 if you find my ice cream chocolate nail art super mouthwatering :p
Hope you enjoy the tutorial, this has now become my #1 favorite daily makeup. Quick, easy, and super C.U.T.E! Most importantly, I've been getting a lot of compliments on it, despite the anonymous ang moh. I'm sure you will too.
Have fun experimenting!
