Make up and alcohol



Hey there,

So on the theme of rocker chick, here's a candid of me doing make up at a party, candy cane in mouth, Sleek sunset palette in hand and running high on J├Ągermeister.

Anyways, i wont be posting my video of rocker chick up so soon. Reason being, is that the video i filmed turn out nothing rocker-ish. (i was playing around with another visual i had seen just before i filmed it)
Here's photos of the rockstar look i'll be doing instead. (I wore this to a metalhead themed party)
Video to follow next week.
i dont rmb what that was but it tasted worse than soap.. i kid you not

In true rockstar fashion, i also have a hair dying video coming up and hopefully a nail tutorial soon.

Sleep-deprived-graphic-designer peace out!

The Rocker Chick in You

Hello gorgeous!

This week we're back with Rocker Chick themed looks. We're really getting into the same weekly theme with 2 different looks. :P Seems more convenient and interesting that way!

When I think rocker I think of dark eyes and defined liners with clumpy mascara. With inspiration from my Rae Morris Express Makeup Book and thinking of the late Amy Winehouse's (in)famous liner, I created a wearable look (I hope so, cos I did go out with this makeup before).

 A quick cheap trick using tape to create this look in 10mins. Let me know if you try this look and here are my pictures and video!




Details of products used in the description box!
With that, I hope you rock this easy look and have an awesome day!


Rock on & Peace Out.
Love, .M

Shopping Obsessions We Can't Stop!

HELLO PEOPLE!

My Internet is finally up and running after 3 days! I just did a mad rush of uploading videos and decided to do a quick post here.




First up is our mini joint haul video!
Here's where we shop!

Sleek Me Myself and Eye Palette
Z Palette- Large
NYX Lip Creams (Antwerp) & shopping-district also gave us a free NYX lip pencil ( Nepal)


From Sephora
Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow Pencil Stash and De-slick Powder 
Bare Minerals Travel Buffing Brush from Sephora 



[Note from Andrea: This powder is Evil Shades Matte Silk, The Shine Killer. 
It's an amazing product, so super fine and silky on your skin. But because it's so fine its has a tendency to fly everywhere when you open in the jar even though there is a sifter (the holes of the sifter is a bit too large i think). So this is an excellent way to use this product and totally minimize wastage. I totally recommend this!]




From BHG Bugis
Maybelline The Hyper Curl Volume Express Waterproof Cat Eyes Mascara

From Bugis Street 
Feathery Lashes (Random Cosmetic shops on Level 1,2 & 3)




Currently my Niki Manaj inspired look video is taking FOREVER to upload (third time uploading it), it keeps saying Processing, grrrrrrrr, so I'll post that tomorrow or something! 

Love,
.M

First post!


Hey everyone,

Our blog is up so check here for more frequent updates.. Something like twice a week maybe?

I wanted to come up with something fancier but apparently my web design skills/coding are still as bad as they were when I barely scaped through that module in design school..

Marie's internet is down so hopefully her posts will be up by next week.

"I originally recorded a video at Marie's house but my memory card was full and so a lot the video got cut out and didnt record. *insert cursing and swearing*

So thats why this look is marginally different from the one I had on in her video.

I also recorded this at 1am last night because i've been so busy shifting house and valentines day is almost here and Marie said she'd be on strike and not record anymore videos if i didnt hurry up the hell up and post one this week.

Lastly, my fingers feel extremely naked because i broke a nail while shifting and had to chop then all off and strip the colour.

So thank you for watching my very FIRST video tutorial.

I'm rambling and nitpicking."

The 1second flash of words at the beginning. If you were wondering.
