Doll Eyes.

This one is going to be a quick makeup blog post. I had a shoot today and I just wanted to share my smokey eyes-hot pink lips look. I loved my hair and makeup today and I think I look quite doe-eyed.... (Yes I just noticed that now!) but anyway, people always ask me how I do my makeup...and while that is quite extensive and hard to explain (it took me years and years of observing my mom, the ultimate makeup goddess)... let me help you out with which products work best for me, especially for nights out...

Pink contacts are LOVE!

Remember to always remove makeup before going to bed to avoid those nasty breakouts. I use Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil in the pink bottle/ Fresh (for oily skin types) to remove my makeup.

I've been getting some emails on makeup tips/ products I can recommend and these so far are top notch for me. I am sure I have so much more I can add up to the list but I shall save that for next post. I have A LOT of allergies which is why "testing" or "sampling" new brands is quite a challenge especially when I am unsure of the ingredients. So I stick to the tried and tested ones which never failed me. Hope it helped!

  9. @Anonymous:

    I have combination skin. Sometimes I get oily and some times I get extremely dry skin. The products I used balanced them out somehow though :)

    My contacts are PINK NUDY CONTACT LENSES from Japanese Candy :)


I would love to hear what you have to say.
So, send in your love.
