Wild & Chic Eye Shadow Palette by Make Up For Ever

Lovin the shades of the limited edition Make Up For Ever eyeshadow palette and I have to blog about it.

Last week, I went to get makeup for my church evangelistic drama and I was introduced to this palette. With 6 intense shades of eyeshadow and a mini Aqua Eyes eyeliner in black (0L), indeed it lives up to its name.

Here presenting the look I have done with the Wild & Chic Eye Shadow Palette by Make Up For Ever.

Guess what?? The packaging is super nice! Rugged rock chic look. A very nice palette to bring around.

Look at the assemble inside.

A clearer view of the shades in it.

If you love smokey eyes,  try getting this palette soon before it is sold out.

VIVID FUCHSIA

Jera just came back from Japan last week and here are the looks that I will like to share with you.

For those who visit this blog regularly would know that I love to experience new looks whenever I am on a trip.

For the 1st day, I decided to go PINK on my lips! 🙂

The power of pink? Makes one look younger and livelier.  Try and you will see the results 🙂

To attain the desired colour, try Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Lip 8C. It promises to stay unless you are on your chicken wings frenzy lol Top it off with Glossy Full Couleur 4 – Fuchsia Pink for that glass effect whole day long.

MAKE UP FOR EVER AQUA EYELINER

Introducing my latest favorite waterproof eyeliner that promises to stay unless you strip it off!

Make Up For Ever Aqua Liner!

The range comes in 15 shades, rich in pigments that guarantees intense colour and waterproof results. Draw the attention once again to the windows to your soul!

My pick?  Diamond Turquoise Blue which caught my eye when I dropped by the store. 2 layers of the eye liner instantly brightens up my eyes. I just couldn’t stop looking into the mirror at the amazing effect 🙂

For best results, remember to shake Aqua Liner up and down before each use.

Pro tip: add a second line of eyeliner above the first. Either play up contrast by layering two bold colors or opt for a gentle touch by pairing two similar shades.

If you have a pair sensitive eyes which just couldn’t take eyeshadow, try this eye liner as it dries almost instantly without fall-outs. The essential amino acids of apple juice content in the formula is extremely gentle to your lids. Say goodbye to stings, swells and running lines!

Love,

JERA

I’M A BARBIE GIRL

My personal interpretation of the Barbie Doll Look:

Okay, I have to admit that this is just a heavier version of my pink & purple look, with the fake lashes & more of the pink eyeshadow… but at least I tried! I have to admit that because I was heading out with this look, I opted to go lighter on the blushers & lips 😛 Think JERA will do a better job with the inspired looks & I will just stick to dolling myself as pretty as possible 😀

If you were wondering, for eye makeup, I used a combination of Tony & Tina eyeshadows with Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Eyeliners. Eye makeup base was from Too Faced and highlighting powders around the eyes were from Biotherm and Majolica. As for face makeup, it was a combination of liquid foundation from L’Oreal + loose powder from Make Up For Ever + shine powder from Maybelline.

Not too complicated for you, I hope! 😀

THE CHOCOLATY ADDICT

Are you a chocolate lover like me? My favourite are the dark chocolates 😀 Which is why I can’t resist doing a CHOCOLATY look!

So how do you achieve a ‘healthy’ chocolaty look without looking like you got sun burnt? 😛

7 steps to The Chocolaty Addict look

1. Makeup Base

To bring out the intensity of chocolate in this look, you can use bronzer all over your face & neck, just like what I did.

Try! “Bronzing Powder” or “Brilliance Powder” from Body Shop, “Bronze Goddess Soft Shimmer” or “Soft Duo Bronzer (Matte)” from Estee Lauder, “Mat Bronze” from Make Up For Ever or “Shimmering Powder” from Laneige.

2. Eyeshadow

Find the right shade of dark brown eyeshadow that suits you. Test the shade on the back of your hands to check and  the swatches & avoid getting browns with red hues in it, because those tend to make your eyes look like you cried the whole night 😦

Try! Eyeshadow N98 or N139 from Make Up For Ever, #32 Chocolate from The Body Shop, or  “Twiced Baked” Eyeshadow from Urban Decay

Can you spot the colour gradients of the eyeshadows? From dark chocolate to light chocolate brown… watch the colour fade into the highlights! Such blending is termed as smoky eyes as the colour is ‘smoked out’ 🙂

3. Eyeliner

Any black eyeliner will do the job for this look! Just make sure you smudge the dark brown eyeshadow on top of the eyeliner drawn to soften the effect.

Try! “24/7 eyeliner in Zero” from Urban Decay

4. Fake Lashes or/and Mascara

Every girl has their own preferred taste of fake lashes. And my personal take is the fake lashes that gives the best results are those soft, straight strands (made from animal hair, I believe) because they usually give a sophisticated effect. Just in case you are unaware, mascara can actually be applied over such lashes more smoothly, as compared to the hard synthetic fake lashes.

For lash glue, I prefer them to be from Lash Grip. It hardly fails me even when I am tearing due to irritation. You can purchase this from SASA or Guardian.

One coat of mascara is NEVER enough! Apply 2 coats on the top lashes (yours & the fake lashes) to ‘join’ them together. If you have long lower lashes, you can also apply 2 coats of mascara  on them to create more intense-looking eyes.

Try! “Blackout” in WTP from Christian Dior or “Aqua Smoky Lash” from Make Up For Ever.

5. Eyebrows

As you can tell, I prefer my brows to have a thick & natural feel. To tame my brows, I always use a brown natural mascara over my brows to keep the disobedient strays in place.

6. Blusher

Opt for brown-based blusher or bronzer; peachy-orange blusher will look great with this look too!

Try! “Brush On Bronze” from The Body Shop, “Afterglow Blush” in Score from Urban Decay“Blush Rush in Bare” from Smashbox or “Sculpting Blush” in N10 from Make Up For Ever.

7. Lips

Keep them NUDE to compliment this look!

Try! “Tinted Lipglass” in Lust or “Cremesheen Glass” in Just Superb from M.A.C  🙂

And, presenting the final results after all that hard work…

Extra Bits & Pieces

Wanna smell like bars of chocolates? Then I’m sure you will love:

  • “Fantasy” perfume by Britney Spears, which contains the scent of white chocolate
  • “Covet” perfume by Sarah Jessica Parker, which emphasizes lavender and chocolate
  • “Sephora Spray” & “Wash and Scrub” in chocolate
  • Urban Decay Flavored Powder in Cocoa

Now, I’m really craving for dark chocolates! I think I’m going to make a trip to Vivo City for a box of Awfully Chocolate ice-cream soon 😉 Who wants to join me?
