I’m sure you must have heard of Shupette by now, especially if you’re a beauty addict like me! While I don’t really see how a white, fluffy feline is associated with eyeshadow palettes, I definitely like the Shupette Has-It-All Eye & Lip Palette! If you’re tired of all the neutral palettes circulating around and are looking for something more interesting to bring with you on travels, I think the Shupette one could inject some fun into your life!
This was a gift from Mr. Ratatouille (he knows me well) during Christmas, and the moment I got it, I knew I had to make a tutorial on how you can use it! There are 8 eyeshadow shades arranged in 2 sets of quads, 6 lip colours, 2 applicators and a big mirror that spans the underside of the entire lid. And here’s how you can use it to create a purple and gold eye makeup look:
Highlight the brow bone and add some base colour to the eyes (Steps 1-3).
Before you do anything to your eyes, always have foundation and concealor on first. Then, follow the steps below.
1. Highlight the brow bone with the light gold shimmer shade.
2. Dust the grey-purple shade on your entire upper lid under the brow bone. This creates a slight depth and shows off the hollows of your eye socket.
3. Next, apply the brinjal shade on your entire upper lid until around the crease. You can go a little further higher than that, but no more than the grey-purple shade in the previous step.
There’s something quite exotic about Guerlain, and I’m not sure if it’s got something to do with it’s very French name. Nevertheless, I’m very excited to show you all the Guerlain 2014 Holiday Collection!
This year’s beauty collection is inspired by l’Opéra à Paris, the place where spectacular shows steal the limelight, and where audiences remain in awe of talented actors, long after the plays have ended.
Hello mid-November! The more each day passes by, the more it’s time to sparkle. The year-end season is always my favourite time of the year because things start mellowing and everything just becomes more relaxed. This is how the entire year should be like!
I got my hands on this collection a day after my company’s disco themed dinner and dance (what a waste, I know) and immediately fell in love. It’s seriously got everything you need in it to sparkle and yet it’s not over the top. Before I dive into the review and let you in on how best to use this, might I just add this little message: Get it while you can!
The Laneige Sparkling Party 2014 Holiday Collection is a cute little box of 2 Water Drop lip tints, 2 glitter nail lacquers and a glitter eyeshadow duo.
The Laneige Sparkling Party box. It closes gently with a magnetic clasp.
When opened, it reveals the goodies inside, plus a tutorial on how you can achieve a day and night look. I love the rose gold foil!
The Glam Sparkling Look, which is what I call the night look. Get the collection to discover the other look you can create.
A closer look at the nail lacquers and eyeshadow duo. So festive!
What does one do when one’s sick of staying bedridden due to a back injury? One leaves said bed and gets some air!
I hurt my back quite suddenly – and unexpectedly – and the doctor gave me some painkillers for it. But this was Day 3 of being on meds and staying at home all day, so I went out for a quick brunch with the sister at a Chinese restaurant in town. Because my back wasn’t all healed, I totted a clutch and kept things light.
I did my second-ever video, this time on a dramatic cat eye look for Asians. The front part of the video where I applied foundation and drew in the lines for the liner aren’t included, as they weren’t filmed. My SD card had filled up pretty quickly with photos and pictures from my recent trip to Malaysia!
A little bit about creating this look:
Start with the end in mind. As an Asian, I have the typical hooded lids many Asians have. So, I begin by drawing the outline of the cat eye first and then filling it up with black – lots of it! The black colour should be visible when the eyes are fully opened, and give that extra pop of feline seduction when eyes are closed. Liquid liner on top of the gel liner helps to add an extra depth to the black shade, while eyeshadow on top of this helps to seal everything in and prevent creasing or smudging.
Hey guys! I finally got down to filming my very first FOTD video! It’s taken me 2 years to finally do this and I really don’t know why it took so long. If you’ve been following the blog, you’ll know I recently got the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette and I just can’t seem to put it down whenever I need a good neutral look.
Here’s the video, but I must warn you that not everything I did was filmed. It’s after all my first time doing this and it was quite spontaneous, actually. Hope you like it, and please subscribe to my new channel!

I’ve been a bit on the baking and cooking streak lately, making pasta which everyone seems to love. Hint: It’s all about the sauce! Baking last weekend proved to be a semi-success as well, when the boyfriend and I made some fondant moelleux for the family. The chocolate lava cakes tasted the way they should, but were a bit flat in the middle. Like this already half-eaten one:
But if going near an oven isn’t your kind of thing, maybe you’d want to give no-bake recipes a try. I started with cheesecakes, after all. This month, you’ll learn how easy it is to make something that tastes so good (and involve your child at the same time)!
Oh my, where do I get started? 20 brand new shades, glittery, shimmery and matte – all in a brand new, one-of-a-kind palette. The Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette is the latest eyeshadow bomb from the brand, launched in time for the holidays this year. Not only is it limited edition, each and every one of the palette is unique in the sense that the pattern on the purple-hued box is different for every palette. So if you’re one of those shoppers – like me – who tend to pick and choose the “perfect” product to take home with you every time you visit a store, this would certainly justify that.
