I’ve realized that there’re a lot of people who land in my blog looking for an UD Naked 3 tutorial. So, here’s my Party Makeup look using UD Naked 3. This look is not too smoky, but if you’re looking for a smoky using this palette, you can check out my UD Naked 3 smoky eyesvideo tutorial, and otherUD Naked 3 tutorials. I’ve also done an UD Naked 3 review, so if you’re thinking of buying this palette for yourself or as a gift, do read the review first.
I’m using a new camera for this tutorial, and I’m not sure how this pictorial looks on your screen, I hope you can see the colors as I see it on my screen. It’s a very nice mauve shade, and it looks very feminine and soft.
Anyways, for my face, I used a new foundation I recently bought. I think I’m really liking this foundation, it’s the Chanel Perfection Velvet Lumiere. Anyways, will have a line up of reviews coming up soon. I’m trying to push all the makeup tutorials first since it’s almost Christmas and New Year, so reviews will be up in January probably.
One thing regarding this tutorial is that I only used 1 brush, which is the brush that came with the palette. All I did to keep the brush clean between application is to run it through a black stippling sponge (similar to the Vera Mona Color Switch).

We are almost in mid-December, already?! Anyways, most of you must have a lot of parties and events to attend to, so today’s post is a Day to Night Party Makeup Tutorial! This is one way of changing your day makeup to night makeup quickly, and all you need is a lipstick. You can also add a black eyeliner if you prefer, just like what I did for this post, but if you don’t it’s not a big deal.
For this look, I applied falsies just because my real lashes are not that full. You can skip the falsies altogether, I just do it because it looks better in pictures since my real lashes are not full in volume and not curly.
This Day to Night party makeup tutorial is all about creating a strobed-looking skin, nothing too contoured. The eyes are very muted and simple. For the Day look, the eyes are very open and brightened. For the Night look, the focus in on the lips, not too dark but not too bright either.
For the eyes and cheeks, I used my new Tarte Light of the Party palette, and can I just say that I’m loving it?! One of the best neutral palette, in my opinion. The colors are very muted and soft, a lot of matte colors too! Absolutely gorgeous. I’ll do the review for this palette soon!
Also, how you liking my luminous/strobed skin? I just bought Becca Backlight Filter primer, and tested it today. Such a gorgeous primer for strobing. I feel like my skin just glow all over! I applied this primer under my eyes, on top of my cheekbones, on the bridge of my nose, & cupid’s bow. I also applied this primer under my NARS foundation so it doesn’t look too dewy.

Today, I’m creating a light daytime look using UD Naked Smoky, and I’m pairing it with my new KVD Lolita liquid lipstick. The eyes are very light and simple, and obviously you can skip the false lashes altogether if you’re going to wear it as a daytime makeup.
The lips are quite different than what I’m usually used to. I usually like to pair a peachy or corally lips with this kind of eye look. However, I stepped out of my comfort zone, and decided to pair this with KVD Lolita liquid lipstick, which is a mauve color. I have had mauve lipstick before, but this KVD Lolita is slightly darker than what I’m used to. I didn’t mind it, I think it’s still a very pretty color. Just a word of warning, this liquid lipstick will dry to a darker shade than what you see on the tube.
Again, I’m featuring Tweezerman Brush IQ brushes that were sent to me by Preen.me as part of their PreenMeVIP program. The brushes used in this tutorial are: “Blender“, “Shader“, “Line Glider“, and “Brow” brushes. Not in picture: Tweezerman ProMaster lash curler, used to curl the false lashes and my lashes.
Today’s Big Dolly Eye Makeup tutorial is for those who’d like to make their eyes look enlarged and more doll-like! I think this type of makeup look is very popular in Asia, and I know personally in my home country, Indonesia, girls love this kind of look since it makes their eyes look bigger. For me, this look is already pretty heavy, and I would not wear this out for a day makeup. I’ll probably wear it if I go to party, but again, it’s up to your preference.
The key to this look is heavy eyeliner and lots of lashes. I could have done something a bit more extreme, and made it look even bigger, but I also wanted to make the look more wearable. If you want to make your eyes even bigger and more doll-like, feel free to substitute the black eyeliner on the waterline with a beige or white eyeliner. If you have monolids, you can use eyelid tape/glue/fiber to create a fold, it’ll help to open up the eyes more and make it look bigger.
Also, add more lashes, you can stack 2 lashes on the upper lashes and a bottom falsies. I don’t have bottom falsies, so I didn’t put any. The falsies I’m using is already thick and long, so I didn’t stack my falsies.
I used my Dior Eye Reviver palette for this tutorial. I’ve used this palette on my other tutorial, so if you’d like to see the shades that correspond with the number I listed below, please check out my Summer Wedding Guest Makeup Tutorial post.I have a picture of the palette there with the shades’ numbers.
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.

Summer is the season for Wedding, and this Summer Wedding Guest Makeup look would be perfect for those beautiful outdoor wedding parties! It’s flirty and summery! I love coral lips for summer, it’s very youthful and less intimidating than red or orange lips. A fun look to wear! If you want to wear this as a daily makeup, just skip the falsies. This makeup is wearable and will look great on everyone.
The lip color for this look is the YSL Rouge Pur Couture 52, also known as Rosy Coral. This lipstick is popular in Asia, it was sold out everywhere in Indonesia! Apparently it was made popular by a Korean actress. Anyways, I can see why Asian women are obsessing over this lip color. You can wear it as a stain, or full on like me. The one thing with this lipstick I disliked is the fact that it’s quite drying on the lips. I have very dry lips, so I have to apply lip balm before and after I apply the lipstick.
Also, I just grabbed the Dior Eye Reviver palette, and this is the first time I’m using it. I really like this palette, it has soft wearable shades. It’s so easy to blend and buttery. Not as heavily pigmented as some other brands, but gorgeous shades. It is too pretty to be passed on.

I was thrilled to see L’oreal La Palette Nude 1 in Wal-Mart near my home. I had known L’oreal released this palette from their Instagram account, but didn’t have the chance to get one earlier since I was busy. Last week, I was just browsing through the makeup department in Wal-Mart while I was running errand, and I was excited to see it on the shelf. There were only 3 palettes left, so I had to grab it before it was gone.
If you have followed me on Instagram, you’d have seen half of my nude palette collection I posted last week. My obsession with nude palettes begun when I was in makeup school, where I realized on almost every single makeup jobs I had to do or assist for, most clients asked for a neutral-based makeup look whether it’s simple clean makeup or smoky eyes.
The L’oreal La Palette Nude 1 is a pretty good palette, if you’re looking for an affordable nude palette. It has a great range of shades from your highlight, medium to contour shade. The only 1 thing that’s missing from this palette is a black eyeshadow. This palette reminds me a lot of the Urban Decay Naked 1 palette.
Since there’s no name of each individual shade, I’ve numbered them according to the way L’oreal numbered them. Please refer to the picture above as reference for the shades used in my pictorial below.
Primer – Urban Decay Primer Potion “Original”
Base – L’oreal La Palette Nude 1 “#1”
Transition – L’oreal La Palette Nude 1 “#3”
Eyelid – L’oreal La Palette Nude 1 “#4”
Crease/lower lid – L’oreal La Palette Nude 1 “#6”
Inner corner – L’oreal La Palette Nude 1 “#10”
Winged liner – Kat Von D Tattoo Ink Liner “Trooper”
Lower lash line – Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette “Shax”
For this Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye contour tutorial, I’ve decided to follow the instruction that came with the palette – the natural look from the Neutral Quad. As you all know, I’m a big fan of Kat Von D’s products, especially her tattoo eyeliner and eyeshadow palette. Her products are amazingly pigmented, very smooth, and buttery. For this tutorial, I’m using mostly Kat Von D products.
I cannot sing enough praises on how great Kat Von D’s products are, you have to try it out for yourself! This palette is no different, I really recommend this Shade + Light eye contour tutorial for those of you who are interested in learning how to contour/highlight your eyes.
I’ll try to do swatches and perhaps a quick review next time.Here’s my review for this palette! I think I’ll do more tutorials using this palette, I want to use this palette to its fullest extent!
Primer – Urban Decay Primer Potion “Original”
Base – Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour “Laetus”
Inner Lid – Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour “Lucius”

Upper & lower lash line – Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour “Solas”
One of my favorite way to change my makeup wardrobe is to create a neutral eye with pop of color. This is the easiest way to add colorful eyeshadow, if you are not comfortable wearing lots of colors on your eyes. There are several ways to add this pop of color – on the waterline, along the lower lash line, or as winged liner.This time, I decided to add a pop just on the inner corner of my eyes. It’s very subtle, and has a brightening effect. This is a great way for those with monolids or hooded eyes to add color to their eyes.
The eyeshadows that I used for this tutorial is from the MAC Amber times 9 palette (except for the purple). You can purchased the eyeshadow individually if you prefer. The eyeshadows on this palette is smaller than the individual ones, but I think it’s not that bad especially if you’re a beginner makeup artist who is trying to build their kit, or if you are someone who don’t wear much makeup daily but would like a versatile palette. I like this palette, it might be my go-to bridal palette, such pretty earthy tones with a good mix of matte, shimmer, frost, satin, velvet and lustre
Primer – Urban Decay Primer Potion original
Base – MAC eyeshadow “Georgia Peach”
Transition – MAC eyeshadow “Cork”
Outer V/lower lash line – MAC eyeshadow “Aromatic”
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.
