I love playing with colours! But I’m also quite lazy at times. So how do I achieve a fun look without all the hassle of blending colours? A coloured double eyeliner! This whole look made use of a coloured eyeliner in a Mint shade and also starring a juicy pout with a Watermelon red shade.
It’s EASY, FAST and I love it so much! Of course, you don’t have to follow this look to a T and use only Mint. Change up the colours, use red, pink, purple, blue, whatever floats your boat.
Makeup is FUN!
Picture on the left shows how I look like when I wake up in the morning. No makeup and messy bed hair. And on the right is just about 30 minutes later.
A). PREP SKIN
If skin is dirty with pores clogged and oil deposits on it, it’s quite certain that any makeup application or techniques would be difficult and results not the prettiest. So always prep the skin by cleansing and moisturizing before any makeup application. If you have a facial steamer, then that’s the best!
Here I used Panasonic’s Facial Ionic Steamer that is part of their Nanocare line. A beautiful art piece that resembles a vase and would definitely look pretty as a decoration piece in your room.
Ultra-fine nano-sized particles (which is 4000 times smaller!) from the steam can help to moisturize and cleanse your skin at the same time. After using it, your skin will be prepped and will thank you later on. It also serves as a wake-me-up routine and feels very comfortable having a warm facial, especially during cold mornings!
B). EYE MAKEUP
I prefer to start off with the eyes, just in case there are any mistakes or fall outs, I can still ‘erase‘ them and not ruining the other parts of my makeup. This section is also the star of this look, featuring a double eyeliner with the usual black and a unique mint!
1. Apply a shimmery cream eyeshadow all over the eyelids.
I chose Makeup Forever’s cream eyeshadow that I have been using daily.
2. Line upper lash line with a liquid black eyeliner.
My liquid liner of choice here is Dolly Wink’s, which gives a crisp thin line and has great pigmentation!
3. Apply a Mint eyeliner over the black eyeliner for a double eyeliner look!
I used Clio’s Gelpresso Pastel collection in Mintade. It’s creamy, pigmentation and easy to apply.
No matter how big your eyes are, if you lashes are not curled, you’ll still look sleepy and tired. Just like a window. No matter how big a window is, if the curtains are drawn, the window is always hidden.
I used Panasonic’s Heated Eyelash Curler and it actually works! I’m really impressed with the results. It has a rotating comb and heats up really quickly. Just look at how well it managed to get all my lashes to be curled and the difference it made to my eyes!
Yes, my double eyelids will be more obvious when my eyelashes are curled and applied with mascara.
1. No Eye Makeup
2. Eyes Open with Eye Makeup
3. Eyes Closed with Eye Makeup
D). REST OF THE FACE
4. Apply your favourite foundation.
I have been obsessed with Laneige’s BB Cushion for a while now and have been loving the flawless finish that it gives.
5. Fill in brows according to your natural brow shape.
My pick is Tarte’s Amazonian Clay Waterproof Brow Mousse that includes a double-ended brow brush.
6. Create a natural flush with a neutral blush with to give some dimension to the face.
I opted for a mauve neutral blush as I wanted the eyes and the lips to be the star of this look.
7. Tint lips with a bright watermelon red stain or lipstick for a juicy pout.
I fell in love with Clio’s Gelpresso Glow Tint in Enamel Pink and love its consistency and colour!
I’m a big fan of straighteners because it’s much more versatile than curlers. Just because I’m able to either straighten or curl just by using 1 tool! I had a go at Panasonic’s Nanocare Hair Straightener and am really impressed with it! Not only is it easy to use, I love how it’s pink as well. Additionally, results achieved were out of this world!
Sleek, straight hair is now achievable.
The power button is at the side, along with the temperature controls that goes all way up to 200 degrees Celsius. There’s even a lock at the side so it’s more compact.
Here’s half of my hair done. Notice how sleek, shiny and straight it looks? The straightener lives up to its claims by protecting and not damaging my locks while making it look amazing. Not much effort needed as well, I only had to go through it once or twice! My whole head was done within 15 minutes and it lasted the whole day!
And there we go! A look within 30 minutes that could last you the whole day. Simple, fast yet looks like you’ve spent a lot of time putting it together. Bored of it? Just use another colour for the upper lashline or use another colour lipstick, there are endless possibilities.
