[Inspiration] - BoA Hurricane Venus Make-Up Inspiration

Like some of you may already know that I'm a BoA fan. She released new album in South Korea and I thought the new make-up was intense and so cool, but never felt trying them myself...

And one day when I looked through some Korean website and I found these photos taken by fans. (*I don't remember which site it was......)

Anyway, I thought the make-up was cool, wearable and pretty. The make-up can be really intense and beautiful using makeup-jewelleries but I didn't go that far since I didn't have enough time. ^_^

So here is the make-up I used...

My bare eye (no flesh) with 'Expressions' colour contact lenses in 'Grey'

Prep your eyes - Benefit 'boi-ing' concealer, Too Faced eye primer, MAC Paint Pot 'Rubunesque'

All over the lid - MAC 'Arena' e/s

Outer corner/Outer V - MAC 'Espresso' e/s

MAC Penultimate 'Rapidblack'
MAC Powerpoint 'Engraved'
MAC Fluidline 'Blacktrack'
MAC 'Copper' e/s

White, pearl, glitter... use as you like. It would be nice if you can add some makeup-jewelleries on the white lines.

Inner corner & Highlight - MAC 'Nylon' e/s

Mascara (or False Eyelashes if you want.)

Eyes are done!

For cheeks...
I used MAC 'Peaches' blush

For lip...
I used MAC 'florabundance' lipglass & RIMMEL '700 Nude Delight'



1. Eye line should be rather thin at the inner corner, and thicker at the outer corner.
2. Lower eye line should be slightly more thicker than upper eye line.
3. 'edgy' n 'thin' eyebrow for sharper look.
4. Nudy lips

* I'm wearing...
short black wig I bought in S.Korea -

Nail Growth Project - Week 5

Somehow I don't feel like biting my nails lately. This is a miracle! I guess this is possible since I don't have anything that makes me anxious or nervous at the moment.

Here are the current progress. ^_^

week 5

Still feel amazing by the growth of thumb nail bed! I've heard that the nail beds do not grow on some people due to their types of nail biting habit. But it seems my nail biting habit isn't one of those... ^_^

Unfortunately rest of my nails' nail beds are not growing as much as thumb nails... tho they seem growing tho bit by bit. ^_^

week 1

week 5

I heard that I should file them so it can grow stronger but when? and how much?... hmmm...

[Review] - Vivienne Westwood Melissa Lady Dragon 'Blue' Heart

After a year, I treated myself with this Vivieene Westwood Anglomania Melissa 'Lady Dragon' in 'Blue' Heart in Grey. (... this is long name...)

The reason I chose this colour is because it's NOT total 'white'. It's slightly grey-ish and looks beautiful with blue. It's definitely wearable colour for me. (I can't do bright colour shoes...)

I would wear with 'cold-colour-tone-looks'. E.g.) blue/white/grey jeans, darker-tone leggings, black tights?, grey/blue-tone tops, etc etc etc.


I took a star off because it's not as comfortable as I thought.
(I may have overestimated the power of rubber... lol)
But it's strong and well-built so I added a star. The quality is very good n worth £88.

A must have shoes for Shoesholics.

[Review] - Vivienne Westwood Anglomania for Melissa Ultragirl Bow in 'Black/Gold'

Finally I got myself the pair of VW Melissa Bow shoes!! The colour I chose was 'Black/Gold'. These pics were taken from my phone so the quality isn't so good... hmm...

with flesh
- this is more true colour... rest of pics are too orangeyyy -

without flesh
- my room is dark ... -

Unexpectedly it smelled like a bubblegum!! lol.

It's very comfortable! The insole is decent with strong cushion.

with leggings

with black jeans

I bought this shoes for everyday wear for long hour walk. I think 'pearl' colour will be really pretty and cute but not for my style... ^_^


I took a star off because I personally wished the black was little bit transparent.
(or available in 'Brown' colour... ^_^ lol.)

But it's comfy and goes well with my clothes.

[Review] - Freshlook colourblends 'Gemstone Green'

My natural eye

without flesh

with flesh


Fairly comfortable
Unique & Vivid (but not intense)
Colour stands out naturally on Dark Eyes

Is it natural on dark eyes? interestingly natural... since it's rare colour, it's difficult to say 'natural' but it blends well with my skin tone. ^_^
Any make-up with them? maybe with 'warm colors' e.g. brown, green, yellow, gold?? But I can also wear them without make-up too.
Is it good for Asians? depends I guess... but I LOVE IT...
Will I purchase them again? Yes.

[Review] - Expressions Color 'Gray'

without flesh
- my room is quite dark -

with flesh


Fairly Comfortable
Vivid & Edgy (fashionable rather than natural)
Color stands out well even on Dark Eyes

Any eye-makeup I would wear with them?
definitely 'Smoky' or 'Emo' or anything strong. ...tho I can still imagine myself wearing them with no-makeup...
Are they good for Asians?
hmm... personally it's too intense for me...
Will I purchase them again?
maybe... 'Not' for now....

[Wishlist] - August 2010

Mulberry - Alexa

This is my ultimate favourite bag of 2010!!! It's been some times since the last time I fell this obsessed!!
I know there are 'Mulberry Alexa vs Proenza Schouler PS1' blog and I also love PS1 but it's too expensive for me... Mulberry Alexa is right above of my limit from my savings for decent bag. I might visit Bicester Village soon and see if it's available.

Louis Vuitton Key Pouch

I don't like purse/wallet since I don't carry big cash. This pouch is more spacious than normal key pouch form higher end brands, which I thought it's perfect coz I carry coins, keys and lots of cards... It retails about £170. Maybe this will be my birthday present??? (or not...)

Vivienne Westwood Melissa Heart - white/blue

I've mentioned Melissa Heart in orange/red before in my blog... Then the orange color was too bright for my skin tone, I didn't buy them.
But when my friend bought this color and wore them with jeans, they looked stunning. :-)

Canon Powershot SX210

Again, I've mentioned Canon Powershot SX200 before... but then there was slight annoying problem with flesh popping up and stays, and no zooming while videoing, etc... This new SX210 covered all the problems I had with SX200!!!!!! Yeahhhheeeee!!!

Since I've been searching for decent compact camera for about 5 years, I guess it's time to own one!!!
