Four Everyday Autumn Inspired Look – Peach & Cranberry

October is my favourite month of the year, why? Because its when the cold, crispy autumn seasons starts to roll in and also because i am born a libra. When i was in Switzerland, i bought MAC Cosmetic’s eyeshadow in Paradisco and Cranberry, some typical autumnal shades but never really used it. To commemorate them, i decided to take them out to further experiment them. Below are the four simple looks that i have created with the list of products. Three looks will be based on Paradisco, a shimmery peach, while the last look was based the shade “Cranberry”, a burgundy.

Looking into beauty trends in Asian/ Korean vs. Western/ American look for Autumnal vibes, it seems that the Asian/ Korean trends take in more peachy looks while the Western/ Americans usually go with burgundy shades normally due to eye shape. Though in 2017, It seemed to have flipped over just by the palettes and shades famous brands of each side brought out. Western brands like Two Faced has came out with a “Peach” Matte line, where as Asian brands like Etude house has brought out “Wine” based palettes.

Also, i had my eyebrows tattooed two weeks ago in Indonesia. A blogpost will follow after having it retouched, which will be around next month.

I wore significantly less Paradisco and more brown in this look as compared to the one before, which i really liked. Also, this was the first time i tired out Etude House’s peel off lip colour (Dear Darling Water Gel Tint Pack) which caused the inner part of my lips to be extremely dry.

Look Three

I would say the look that i was most satisfied with, because I had more time and incorporated different crease shades to achieve this look. Because of The Balm’s greyish shade, it looked more sophisticated then the first look. The lip colour was darker and consistency was lighter in the lipstick i used here. IMG_6523

[Updated] Travel essentials – Make up, Skin Care, and Hair care

Travel essentials

Hi everyone! I thought I should share some of what I bring with me when I travel since I am travelling very often these days. From face, hair to make up. This will change ALOT and constantly since i am constantly buying cosmetics and im forever traveling to different places.

Face

For face care, i bring practically everything other then the change in my toner and i would leave out the Wonder Pore cleansing foam since i changed from my previous toner to the Wonder Pore line by Etude.
I recently also started to use the Wonder Pores Toner by Etude house, so I bought the really small bottle that is in Etude to contain it. Cotton pads can always be bought later.
Sunblocks I would also use samples. Don’t be afraid to ask for samples when you go out as it is helpful when you travel for a short time like a week. Although i ask for samples at times, i would usually bring along my The Face Shop – Natural Sun AQ super white sun cream. I have been using this for awhile and gone through 2 bottles of this. Currently using the 3rd bottle.

All of them (other then the toothbrush) i will put on a yellow striped pouch from Cotton On when it was on sale and leave it with the check in counter.
