Estee Lauder Disappear Smoothing Concealer - Part 2

Take a good look of my dark circle under my eyes. I'm starting with the concealer on the inner corner of the eye because this is the darkest part. Apply several dots of concealer under the eyes, then use the pad of your ring finger to tap it in (always tap, never rub). I don’t need that much actually because this big fluffy brush is going to blend out a lot.  The left over I use to side of my nose and blemishes. It's very, very easy and movable with this product.
I love applying concealer with big fluffy brush - Lancome 5. As you can see the size is about my finger, it blends easier, and doesn't leave any streaks, and allows me to spread the product around more, so basically a more even coverage and blend more thoroughly than a traditional concealer brush, which is much smaller.

So as you can see the concealer hide my dark circle naturally, by working in sheer layer and build up gradually. It won’t cake, love it. 
If you were using a liquid foundation, you want to apply concealer right over the top of foundation 

A Review : Estee Lauder Disappear Smoothing Concealer

The back of the box reads, "For all skintypes. Disguises dark circles, lines and shadows. Soothes, moisturizes and protects. Fragrance-free. Ophthalmologist-tested."

I have using this product for months, and I found it so wonderful. It has a smooth texture and finish, and stays on perfectly. I don't need to put a lot because it's very pigmented and easy to blend. My under eye area is quite dry with some fine lines and this concealer feels smooth, does not settle into fine lines, blends beautifully, never looks heavy on me, and most importantly it makes me look so much more "awake”. It covers wonderfully but does not cake and does not look fake or mask-like as some concealers do. The tube of the is more sanitized,safer and more hygenic than usual concealer in store.

For the price however definitely not the best. Although at a retail price of RM85.00 it would have to be pretty amazing for me to invest. The tube contains 15ML of product, which isn't much but like I will show you on part 2 you only need a little bit. Actually, it's really not that expensive because the tube lasts a very, very long time.

How to Wear Nude Lips

This is a request from a friend of mine to do nude lips look. Well for me, its is great companion for heavy eye makeup or nude look, perfect for any skin tones any age, ideal for any occasions. By all means, its looks good for anyone, provided you have to choose what shades look best for your skin tone.
To get good pouty look, few step you have to consider. 
1. Exfoliate lips before to create a smooth surface. It is important to ensure the lips is fully hydrated and smoothHide the imperfection or flaw by apply a generous amount of lip balm and let it soak in for a few minutes. Then rub and blot off the excess.
2. Apply a concealer that is the same tone as your skin, just using your finger. Blend and cover the lips completely.
3. Set the lips by lightly dabbing with powder. This is will make your lipstick last long.
4. Define the lip with a lip pencil with same colour of your lips, and apply lipstick. I quite often  skipped lisptick by filling in my entire lips with lip pencil and add nude gloss. 
5. When choosing a gloss, go for either clear or neutral one. If you used a matte lipstick, it's oke to choose a gloss that has just a hint of shimmer to it. 
(me loves 27 pink kiss by Estee Lauder). Apply gloss to center of lips and you’re good to go.

I should add more pink blush. Aiseh!!
Add color somewhere on your face to avoid looking washed out. A natural makeup look with tones that mirror your skin tone is pretty, but add a bright blush or eye color to liven things up. And I agree with many that a glossy nude lip really compliments a smokey eye

How to Wear Red Lips

The inspirations
Few shades of red that I have : L-R, Spanish Red(Orangey Red), Scarlet (Deep Cool Red) and Bright Pink. All from Estee Lauder. I love Estee Lauder's lipstick as they are glide smoothly, the scent of fig and taste pleasantly. :)
For this tutorial, I opt for Scarlet.
a. Important, you have to make sure that your lips are ready to receive lipstick. To begin with, dab on a very small amount of lip balm or petroleum jelly to give your lips a little moisture. If you have lip primer, that’s better.

b. Next, draw a thin line along the edge of lips with a lip liner whose color is one shade darker than your lipstick (or almost same with your lipstick). Start at the center of the upper lip and work outward. For the inner corner part of lips, you need to open your mouth to line in the edged. If you skip this part, people will see a gap when you talk, so don’t skip this.
c. Fill in to entire lips to downplay excessively full lips.
** I skipped D sorry.**
e & f. Apply lipstick from the tube or by using a firm, small lipstick brush. Coat the lips evenly to fill in fine lines. Pay special attention to staying within the lips edges.
g & h. Take the brush and apply the concealer around outside of your lips to clean them up and take out any imperfection. This going to make lips pop, to get a defined lips and to avoid the lipstick from feathering
i. There you go.
If you love your red lips to be a matte and velvety finish, dab a red eye shadow to your lips using your finger. Or, to have a glossy finish, apply with red lip gloss. I just don’t have it so I put a small amount of clear gloss and dab it with lip brush that I used just now. Be precise don’t get it to bleed over.

Wear a rich and boldly colored lipstick to complement soft eye makeup.
I have a full and thick lips. If you have a small lips, give the illusion of a thicker top lip by lining its outermost edges and foregoing liner on the bottom lip.

FOTD : Miss Rose Brown

Another brown look for FOTD. This is super easy as everyone can do this. I didn't apply any eyeliner for this look and I think this is good for everyday wear, match every skin tones at any age, day or night make up. I did it few weeks ago  but unfortunately I haven't got around to posting it until now.  Sorry I messed up the lash! I should attach the falsies to my skin very next to the my lash line. Well, hope you like it anyway.
I used a Miss Rose Eye Shadow for this look, few shades available. Take a look :)

Mix Vege Soup

This is super easy and healthy mix vegetable soup. Either way, this is an affordable and easy soup to put together. I made this with 100% vege, if you're like for a something different you can add chicken sliced or some prawns or what ever you fancy. So basically you will need nothing exotic, everything can be find at local grocery store.
Garlic..Ginger..Straw Mushroom..Baby corn..Chinese Cabbage..Cauliflower..Carrot

1. Add 1-cup water to pot.  Add minced garlic and sliced ginger. Bring to a boil over high heat.
2. Once it is boiled, uncover and reduce heat to medium.Put all the vegetables except Chinese Cabbage.
3. Stir, and add Chinese Cabbage. Add salt or seasoning if you like. I don't. I feel that my amount of garlic and ginger are good enough to bring the taste into the broth.
