Coral and Blue

I wanted to do another look with the MUFE Aqua Cream no. 9. I had to find a good reason to buy it right? Hahaha…I decided to incorporate some blue and yellow. I found inspiration from my trip to Bali couple months a go. The performers in Bali use a lot of blue, pink and gold. In my own twist, I decided to use coral, blue and yellow (and a tiny bit of bronze). When I used to perform(Balinese traditional dance) back when I was a kid, they used to put the 3 dots using a toothpaste (applied using toothpick). For this look, I added 3 tiny dots at the end of the eyeliner to replace the toothpaste.

I’ve found an issue with the MUFE Aqua cream no. 9. You have to work really2 fast to blend it. If you want a lot of colors on your lid, you have to apply it thinly first and then layer it as soon as you can. Speed is your friend when using this product.

Let me tell you my sad story. Ah, talking about it made me so angry! Anyways, so as you guys know I owned Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo in Edgy Emerald, Tenacious Teal and Inked in Pink. I always made sure that any of my cream products are closed tightly. However, for some reason, I guess may be when I was rushing since I have been traveling a lot these couple months, my Tenacious Teal wasn’t properly stored! The lid was loose and guess what! It’s drying out!!! *sigh* Oh the horror! The worse part is that I can only get them in Canada since it’s not sold in Asia yet! *cry*

Anyways…I have to go get alcohol soon so I can revive my Tenacious Teal to its original state. So, do forgive me if the Tenacious Teal isn’t looking so tenacious in this tutorial.

Let’s get down to business now, shall we? 🙂

mufe aqua cream no. 9


1. Using a synthetic brush, I applied 2-3 layers of MUFE Aqua Cream shadow in no. 9 on the lid, focusing most of the products on the center of my eyelid.

2. Using another synthetic brush I applied Maybelline Tenacious Teal 24hr Tattoo on the outer half of the lid. I blended the edge of the crease using a blending brush.

3. Using a flat eyeshadow brush, I applied Ben Nye Cosmic Blue on top of Maybelline Tenacious Teal. I blended the color on the crease using a fluffy blending brush.

4. I applied L’oreal Pepsy Coral infallible eyeshadow on the inner half of the lid.

5. Using a small fluffy brush, I applied Smashbox Blackout eyeshadow on the outer V and I blended the shadow using a clean blending brush.

6. I also blended the L‘oreal Pepsy Coral towards the blue using a clean blending brush.

7. I lined my waterline using NYX Jumbo pencil in Milk.

8. Using a small shader brush, I applied MUFE eyeshadow no. 71 on top of the white eyeliner.

9. I applied Smog eyeshadow from NAKED 1 palette along the lower lash line using an angled eyeliner brush.

Iris Inspired

I found a picture of an Iris flower on google image on a website by jaiart, and I fell completely in love with the colour combination of the Iris flower. I’m also lucky that the 3 MUFE eyeshadows that I happened to own are in the colors that are similar to the Iris – yellow (71), purple (92) and pink (75). These 3 shadows are matte. It’s extremely pigmented and easily blendable.

The key with this tutorial is that you’ll need 2 blending brushes – 1 to apply the pink on the crease, the other 1 to blend the pink out to nothingness so there’s no harsh edge. I recommend something similar to the MAC 217 blending brush.

You also need to be patient in packing the colors on so that it is still intense and yet blended out at the same time.


1. I dipped one side of a flat eyeshadow brush in MUFE 92 eyeshadow and applied it to the crease and outer corner. The side of the brush with the eyeshadow is facing up towards the eyebrow. Use little at first.

2. Using a blending brush (I used Urban Decay’s), I applied MUFE 75 eyeshadow just slightly above the crease in a small circular motion. Using a clean blending brush, I blended the pink shadow to make sure there’s no harsh edge.

3. At this point the purple started to fade out, so I added the purple eyeshadow again on the crease lightly. I still want the pink to show through just above the crease.

4. Using a small shader brush, like the MAC 228, I applied rMAC Noir Plum from the Mega Metal collection right on the crease.

5. Using the flat shadow brush that I used on step 1, I blended the dark plum shadow slightly so that the purple shows through.

6. Using a clean flat eyeshadow brush, I applied MUFE 71 on the crease.

7. I applied MUFE 71 on the inner lower lid using a pencil brush, as well as MUFE 92 on the outer half.

8. I lined my upper lashline using a small angled eyeliner brush and Bobbi Brown Caviar Ink gel liner, creating a winged liner. I also lined my waterline using whatever is left on the brush.

9. I filled my brows in using Anastasia Beauty Express Kit.

10. Using a fluffy blending brush, I applied the highlighter from the Anastasia Beauty Express Kit under the brow bones.

11. I curled my lashes, applied L’oreal Voluminous in Carbon Black and false eyelashes.


12. For the face, I want it to be flawless, clean and fresh. I applied Urban Decay Naked foundation using Shiseido foundation brush all over my face.

13. Under the eyes, I applied L’oreal Magic Touche concealer and blended it with my fingers.

14. I applied L’oreal Super Blendable Concealer Crayon in Medium Deep on the places I wanted to contour (side of nose and hollows of the cheeks). I blended the contour using a clean foundation brush.

15. I powdered my face lightly and applied NARS Matahari blush using MAC Stipling brush on the cheeks.

16. For the lips, I applied Revlon Kiss Me Coral very very very lightly for a little stain.
