Simple Everyday Makeup

How is everyone’s Monday going? The Holiday is approaching real soon, eh?! I wanted to share with you guys this super easy and simple everyday makeup tutorial which can be worn by everyone, especially those who don’t usually wear much makeup. I did 2 version – one with a simple peachy lips, and another with red lips.

I think this look is great for those who prefer a simple no-fuss makeup. Nothing too dark, nothing too bright, but with a bit of colors. This is also a look for those who prefer earthy brown tones over black. I probably would wear this for a brunch (with peachy lips), or even a dinner party (with red lips).

Eyeshadows used in this tutorial are from the Smashbox Full Exposure Palette.

*You can find other tutorials using this palette right HERE!*

Engagement Party Makeup

Last night, I have the pleasure of attending one of my closest friends’ engagement party. For the party, since I was planning to wear my Fuschia print dress, I decided to go for an earthy-coloured eye makeup to complement the dress. I think this look will work well for brides-to-be who like a more natural looking makeup.

So, here’s the tutorial! 🙂


1. I applied NARS Pro Primer all over my face to prep my skin. Then, using a damped Beauty Blender Sponge, I applied Giorgio Armani Silk Foundation all over my face.

2. I applied L’oreal Touche Magique concealer under my eyes (I had to! I didn’t get a good sleep the night before due to my strained neck!).

3. I applied Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin to ensure that my eyeshadows won’t crease and will last all night long.

4. Next, using MAC Powersurge pencil eyeliner, I applied a thick line on my eyelid. Using MAC 239 brush, I blended the liner upwards towards my crease.

5. After checking that the liner is completely blended, I applied the gold-beige colour from Chanel Kaska Beige quad to my eyelid using the flat end of the Urban Decay shadow/crease brush duo (this brush comes with the NAKED 2 palette).

6. Using the same brush and I applied  the plum-brown shadow from Chanel Kaska beige on the outer corner of my eyes. I used the crease brush end to blend the shadow to the crease.

7. Using a clean MAC 239 brush, I applied the darkest purple shadow from Chanel Kaska Beige quad along my upper lash line, blending it upwards.

8. Using a MAC 208 brush, I applied the darkest purple shadow along my lower lashline. I used a pencil brush and run the gold-beige colour on my lower lid to blend out the purple.

9. I used a flat eyeshadow brush to apply the vanilla shadow from the Kaska Beige quad to the inner corner of my lid and under my brows.

10. I lined my waterline and tightline using Urban Decay 24-7 glide-on eyeliner in Perversion.

11. I curled my lashes and applied 2 coats of Revlon Voluminous mascara in Carbon Black on my upper lashes and 1 coat on the lower lashes.

13. I powder my face lightly using CoverFX transparent loose powder.

14. I applied MAC Dainty blush on my cheeks and Benefit Hoola as a contour.

15. Lastly I applied Tarte Lipsurgence in Exposed to complete the look.
