[Get The Look] Easy Steps To Adding Colour To Your Daily Makeup Look With New Products From Maybelline

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

Hi Huneybees,

Wana know how to achieve this look of mine? It's totally effortless and affordable. A clean almost nude look with a splash of pink eyeliner is just what I needed for a day out and here's the basic steps using Maybelline products!

Step 1: Primer - Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser

Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser is a translucent gel primer that promises soft, smooth, pore-free skin after use. It’s a basic primer to blur the appearance of pores and get your skin feeling “baby smooth” with a mattifiying finish and preps skin for foundation and BB Creams, creating a smooth canvas so that your makeup is able to glide on seamlessly. You can use the product as a finishing gel as well, the effects are more obvious too!

Step 2: Foundation - Maybelline Super Mineral 24 Healthy Long Lasting Foundation with Perlite 

This darling bottle of foundation had Mai Miyagi doing a spread in ViVi magazine June 2013 issue when it was released in Japan. Every girl was raving about it and I was glad to try it. I have been using this foundation everyday since. 

It's light, it lasts throughout the day by holding on to my powder and it's shade suits us Asian's perfectly. With its exclusive Micro-Mineral Perlite technology, it instantly traps excessive oil and sweat, leaving behind a velvety feel.

Step 3: Powder - Maybelline SUPER MINERAL 24 Two Way Cake Foundation

Nothing is as fun as bringing the Girl Power out in you. With the new Super Mineral 24 2 way Cake foundation, comes the limited edition covers that has a choice of either Catwoman or Batgirl on the cover. I was given the Catwoman one, which is just nice the character I prefer more.

This powder also contains Perlite and it sticks to my skin all day. For this instance though, I just lightly brushed on the powder o my face, to set the foundation and so that I won't perspire streaks of beige sweat in the middle of the day due to our warm weather...

Step 4: Eyebrow - Maybelline Fashion Brow Mascara 

These brow mascaras are currently my fav, as it makes my brow last throughout the day (don't you hate it when you rub and the brow that you drew is gone?). They come in 2 colors, Rusty Brown and Dark Brown. I'm using the Rusty Brown as I have recently lighten my hair colour.
One thing to love is the mascara wand. Not only is it easy to apply, the rounded tip also helps to build volume to the brow, best for those with thin brows. 

One tip when using brow mascara is to back swipe the brow, so that colours get in between the hairs and then brush lightly from inner corner outwards. Not only will this make your brows look fuller, you can also ensure that every strand is coated.

Step 5: Eyeliner - Maybelline Hyper Glossy Runway Pop Liquid Liner 

So once you have your nude skin colour eyeshadow on your whole lid, apply this metallic glossy eyeliner. It dries within seconds and totally smudge proof. I have the pink one one and in fact this season, blue is in and less flashy, you can give it a try too!

Step 6: Eyeliner - Maybelline Lasting Drama Pen Gel Liner

After the pink eyeliner, I still had a thin black line along my lashes. This trick is to make your lashes look fuller and also make the pink pop even more whilst, widening your eyes. So here, I'm using the new Maybelline Lasting Drama Pen Gel Liner.

What's special is that normal gel liners come in a pot with a brush, which is troublesome. So for this, you simply have to twist the knob at the back of the pen for some gel liner and you can either apply it directly or on the back of your hand before drawing your eyeline.

The black is intensive and what's amazing is before it really dries and set in, you can still smudge it. After which, the eyeline will stay intact. And what's best is that you can control the thick and thin of the line with the soft silicone pen tip.

So, there you have it! These are the simple steps to add a little colour to your daily makeup look. Simply finish it with some blushers and lip gloss, you are set to go! And at the end of the day, you have to try this new product to remove your makeup.

It removes makeup and cleanse your face in one easy step. Introducing the Maybelline Clean Express Miracle Oil-GelThis unique 2-in-1 oil-gel remover & cleanser instantly dissolves stubborn & water-proof makeup while cleansing your skin at the same time with its Moringa seed extract - a super powerful purifier.

All I have to do is squeeze a 50c coin amount of the gel and rub it all over my face, the gel will slowly melt my makeup away and when you wash off, not only is the makeup removed, there is oily residue left behind! Totally time saving and especially useful for those who gets so tired at the end of the day, all you want is to sleep soon right? 

Hope this tutorial helps and looking forward to seeing more "colours"on the streets.
Thank you Maybelline for sending me the products!

Labels: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hi Huneybees,

SKI-II paid homage to its heritage of crystal clear skin steeped in its miracle ingredient - Pitera, with the launch of its first-ever Pitera House at Tangs Orchard.

For over 35 years, SK-II's signature Pitera discovery continues to remain at the heart of the prestige skincare brand. At the launch event, we got to see the craftsmanship of Pitera, how every drop of it is produced of the same optimal quality.

MediaCorp artiste Rebecca Lim together with the established Sake Sommelier - Hiroomi Nagamatsu at rediscovering the SK-II story, tracing the story of this gift from nature. 

The other highlight of the event would have to be the unveiling of SK-II MEN's latest discoveries . MediaCorp artiste - Qi Yuwu drew attention with his flawless looking skin and he shared his perspective on his skin milestones and shared a little on his career and life too.

SK-II Beauty trainer - Cindy Cheong also analyzed Qi Yuwu's skin on the spot, teaching him and the men on the spot how to maximize the benefits of the SK-II MEN regimen with Pitera. Men tend to forgo the lengthy regimen that women follow, thus neglecting the skin's texture, firmness and even moisture level.

However, with just 3 steps of the SK-II MEN regimen - Moisturizing Cleanser, Facial Treatment Essence & Moisturizer, the Pitera within can help to refine the pores, add radiance to the skin, giving it more firmness as well as spots and wrinkle control.

With the new SK-II MEN Facial Treatment Essence, men can expect to get clear vibrant skin in just 14 days. Containing over 90% Pitera, it will help improve the skin across 5 critical dimensions. So now, men can enjoy that flawless looking skin like all SK-II women consumers too!

So, head on over to SK-II's Pitera House at Tangs Orchard today to "revamp"your skin.

And cheers to SK-II for the wonderful discovery of Pitera and giving us flawless looking skin!

[What's New] Introducing The CLINIQUE Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+

Labels: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hi Huneybees,

I received a little gift recently from CLINIQUE. Promising to be Dramatically Different Again, I knew I was in for some goodie to improve my skin's conditions!

The all new CLINIQUE Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion + is the revamped moisturizer under their line. Being so successful, why change it?

Well, the world has changed, (you know all the pollution and global warming), so our skin care products have to change to suit what we need as well. With Phytofix, Hyaluronic Acid, Glycerin and Urea, not only will it help strengthen the skin's barrier to block out the harmful environmental stress, it will also deeply moisturize your skin. Simply apply it all over your face and throat after cleansing and toning your face.

The cream is a pale shade of yellow and fragrance free. I've been using the moisturiser for 3 weeks already and I can feel my skin getting smoother and it works perfectly for my sensitive skin. There are days when my skin will feel dry, especially during that time of the month, but once I got started on the moisturiser, I see a reduce in the dryness. The skin is also so much easier to have makeup on, in fact, I simply need a thin layer of foundation as my skin is glowing smooth. Why hide it?

The CLINIQUE Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion + is available in 2 sizes:
50ml for $28
125ml for $60

It's definitely an affordable moisturiser to keep your skin looking youthful and glowing.
You should give it  a try!
