UD Vice 3 – Joker Inspired Look

I’ve been realizing that lately most of my tutorials used neutral, earthy colors. Today, I decided to use some colors, so I pulled out my UD Vice 3 palette, and here we are! For some reason, I thought of “Joker”, probably because I’ve been bombarded with Suicide Squad news on my fb feeds. So, I combined purple and green to make a wearable Joker inspired look.

Again, I’m featuring Tweezerman tools today. I just want to point out the Tweezerman ProMaster eyelash curler that I used for this look is pretty great for those who have almond/deep-set eyes, or those with monolids. For more info regarding this curler, please check out my Instagram, I posted a picture and some info over there. I also posted a video on Instagram on how I used ABH brow pomade and Tweezerman Brow brush to fill my brows.

The Balm Balmsai Makeup Tutorial

I bought this Balmsai palette back when I was in Jakarta, but I didn’t get a chance to play with it because I thought the palette was too pretty, and I don’t have the heart to touch it! However, all good things must come to an end, and I finally decided it’s time I used this palette. This The Balm Balmsai makeup tutorial is a really fun and summery look. I think a touch of color along the lash line really perk up this whole look. Feel free to omit the falsies, I used it just to make my eyelashes look longer, and open up my eyes a bit more.

Most of the products used for this tutorial are all by The Balm, mostly of the eyes and cheeks. Even though I know The Balm Indonesia’s brand manager, I am in not paid, nor sponsored to do this post.

I actually had a full face picture for this tutorial, but I realized the foundation I was using was too light for my face, and created a white cast, so I decided to remove the portrait. I didn’t realized I’ve gotten darker since I had to work on an outdoor shoot for the past couple days.

Mint Summer Makeup

What is summer without a bit of mint, eh? Today’s Mint Summer Makeup look is easy, wearable, and a lot of fun! I think I could have done it without the yellow on my waterline. You could replace the yellow with beige or white if you prefer.

I decided to use coral on the lips, just to tie the whole look together since I’ve very warm brown on the eyes. However, the coral lipstick looks very orange in my picture. It doesn’t look that orange in real life, it is slightly more peach. This coral lipstick I wore for this look is exactly the same one as the one Emma Stone wore for the 2015 Oscar Award.

MAC Beautiful Iris

I recently fell in love with MAC Beautiful Iris eyeshadow, and had used it in my previous tutorial. Anyways, I just think this eyeshadow is so pretty for Spring/Summer makeup, especially for those who are not afraid of colors. If you’re on the conservative side, please take a look at Neutral Eyes with a Pop of Color on how to add a bit of color to your makeup wardrobe.

Anyhow, I decided to pair this purple eyeshadow with very soft warm brown colors, this way the makeup stays pretty soft and not too much. I used my Kat Von D Shade + Light eye contour palette for the rest of the eyes. I will try to do a review on that palette soon update: Review is up! I have so much review to do, not enough time. I’m still busy with the move, so I haven’t settle down yet. It’s kind of hard for me to do tutorials and getting back into my posting routine with all the stuff lying everywhere. *sigh*

Colorful Summer Makeup

I love bright colorful makeup for summer, but I also love soft colorful shadows. I think this colorful summer makeup tutorial is not too bright, it almost has a watercolor feeling to it, don’t you think? It’s soft, but at the same time it’s colorful. Just a wash of green, orange and purple. Nothing bright, nothing out there, a soft colorful wash just the way I like it! Very wearable, but not outrageous.

Anyways, for the step-by-step tutorial I think I stood too far away from my ring light, and the purple on my lower lash line didn’t show up much. However, on the full face portrait, I stood closer to the light, so the color showed up better.

Summer Makeup – Mint Eyeliner

As the weather is getting warmer, I wanted a lighter, and more colorful Summer makeup. I think I still haven’t had enough of mint makeup. I know the reign of mint color is over, but I couldn’t stay away from it! There’s just something about this color that’s so refreshing. So I decided to create a mint eyeliner look.

You can change the mint liner to any color you want, I think turquoise and yellow would be a great alternative for something bright. I chose to use Stila Smudge stick liner since it gives me the color pay-off I was looking for. I did tried their mint liquid liner, but it wasn’t good at all. I also set the eyeliner using a light green eyeshadow to prevent smudging – this is not necessary unless you have oily lids, just to be safe. Setting the eyeliner with powder will make it smudge-proof especially in warmer weather.

I paired this mint eyeliner with a pink lips, but you don’t have to pair it with this lips. I would pair this with a peachy lips for an alternative. I just paired it with pink lips just because I wanted to use my new lipstick. I kept everything else very simple. No falsies with this look since I don’t want it to look too glam.

Urban Decay Vice 3 Tutorial for Spring Look

Have you guys find out the pro tips given by Ludovic Engrand (Shu Uemura MUA) on my Instagram yet? If not, don’t forget to check it out! Anyways, for today’s Urban Decay Vice 3 tutorial, I wanted to create a spring look using just this one palette. I realized that I haven’t used this palette much, and I don’t know why I don’t use it as much since the eyeshadows are so buttery and creamy! This look is for someone who isn’t afraid of colors!

Of course, you can skip the orange-gold eyeshadow on my eyelid for something more neutral if you feel that this look is too colorful. I’ve done other tutorials using just a pop of color and neutrals in my other posts. So, check those out – Too Faced Chocolate Bar #3Kat Von D Monarch tutorial #2 and Cobalt Blue, Adding Color to eye makeup and a Hint of Mint.

I’ve also recently purchased a Stila brow pen (All Day Waterproof Brow Color), and I used it for the first time in this look. What do you guys think? I personally find this slightly harder to use at first. I’ve used it twice now, and I’m starting to really like the end result this product gives! I’ll try to do a review soon.

Yellow Eye Makeup Tutorial

Spring is almost here, may be? I was expecting a bright sunny week, but it’s Canada! What did I see outside couple days a go? SNOW! It was snowing, and cloudy. To cheer myself up, I decided to create this yellow eye makeup tutorial. I wanted something bright, but wearable at the same time. I also wanted to try a few new products and technique, so today’s tutorial is a bit more full on – cream + powder contour: checked, shimmer highlight: checked!

If you guys want to know more about this new technique I learnt, go over to youtube and look for Gossmakeupartist’s Buffing Technique video (if Wayne is looking at this HIIIIII!!!). Anyways, he had a video prior talking how he came about this technique, and since I’m curious, I decided to give it a try. What do you guys think? I think my skin looks pretty amazing, despite the fact that I put on quite a bit of contour and highlight products. I like how it still looks like my skin is showing through underneath, doesn’t look heavy and cakey at all.

Anyways, all products used listed below! Absolutely love how this tutorial turned out. Super simple, easy and very wearable.

1note: On my waterline, I used Matt Maloy eyeshadow because I left my white pencil liner in Jakarta. Anyways, since it’s a pressed eyeshadow, all I did was pressing it on my waterline with a small angled eyeliner brush. You can apply white eyeliner instead, if you’re not used to applying powder eyeshadow on the waterline.

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Tutorial #3

Spring is almost here, and I wanted to do something lighter and with a bit more color. So, for today’s Too Faced Chocolate Bar tutorial, I created a neutral eye makeup with a bit of purple on the bottom lash. This is how I usually wear my makeup if I want a splash of color on my eyes.

I’ve done similar looks on my other tutorials – Kat Von D Monarch tutorial #2 and Cobalt Blue. For other ways to incorporate just a bit of colors into your eye makeup, please check out this other tutorials – Adding Color to eye makeup and a Hint of Mint.

For this look, I specifically wanted to only utilize Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette. I will try to create more looks with this palette, so you can see how versatile this palette is. You can check out my other tutorials using this palette as well – Holiday Makeup #2, Holiday Makeup #3, and 4 bridal makeup looks.

I do apologize for the unruly eyebrows. I’m trying to grow them out, but I’ll clean them up before my next tutorial, promise! Anyways, I’d like to mention that the pictures do no justice on how the eyeshadows are in real life. My room was bright when I took the first couple photos, but it get cloudy real fast yesterday. I had to deal with the Sun going in and out, so the last few pictures don’t really show how shiny and awesome the eyeshadows are.

Holiday Party Makeup #4 – Glitter Liner Tutorial

Almost NEW YEAR! I wish everyone a great year ahead! 2014 was fun, it was a bit rocky for me, but nevertheless a good year. 2014 has passed, and here to a great 2015! Hopefully in 2015 everything will go even better! I cannot wait to start 2015, and I have a feeling it’ll be an awesome year! Anyways, since the New Year is almost here, this is my last post of 2014 – a glitter liner tutorial. Last year, for NYE, I did a silver smoky makeup, this time I opted for more glitter!

I wanted to do a slightly more silver glitter, but couldn’t find any, so I decided to do this neon green glitter. Keep in mind that some glitters are not meant for the eye area! The one that I used for this tutorial actually is NOT for the eye area. I decided to use it because I know it won’t irritate my eyes. If you are not sure whether to use glitter or not, please consult the makeup artist/sales person who’s selling you the glitter. Also please be careful if you’re wearing contacts and using glitter on your eyes!

As I said in my previous post, I will not be posting the step-by-step instruction, instead you’ll get the usual photos and product list only. This is a scheduled post, so for any questions, go to my Instagram if you need a quick response.

For the glitter, I applied it onto my eyes using a wet angled eyeliner brush. However, if you can find a mixing medium (e.g. MAC), that’d probably be better since I found that when the water evaporated from the glitter, it became apparent that the glitter started to fall all over my lashes and then to my face.

Another tip when using glitter and it falls on your face, use a tape to pick it up – just press it lightly to your face and it’ll pick up all the fallen glitters. If you have no tape around, use a CLEAN SPOOLY (aka mascara wand) to get rid of the glitter – just brush it in places where the glitter has fallen, use the tip of the wand if it is a stubborn one.
