Timeless Style: Audrey Hepburn




I love Audrey. She is so elegant and classy, her sense of style is timeless. Audrey was born Audrey van Heemstra Ruston in Belgium in 1929....*she's not American? or British? I'm so ignorant* thats basically all i know about her hahahaahah~ the rest i supposed you could google her, no point of repeating those..

Anyway her style is always elegant and simple with just the right amount of sexiness. She'd opt for capri pants, ballet flats, her famous trademark the little black dress, full skirt, short string pearls or something less feminine but made it look sexy like button-down men's shirts, huge hats and sunglasses. She made it her style and trademark and it remain in fashion until now.

the best thing about her style is that anyone can have it, no matter what budget you have its do-able then all you need is class. Keep it slick and simple, you can't go wrong (well at least won't stray far)

the key to her look is:
  1. know your body and work it to your advantage. Experiment and see what works best for you.
  2. Dress comfortably. there is no point of being all high fashion but you are suffering from it. The the que from Audrey, when everyone else is wearing heels she opt for ballet shoes/flats.
  3. Good Posture. Do not slouch at any circumstances. Audrey was a ballerina before she was an actress so she have that perfect posture.
  4. Simple Make up. Keep it simple and light. less is actually more!
  5. Be confident! You are just as beautiful when you are confident with yourself.

True Spa


Last week my sister and i went to True Spa for a relaxing aromatherapy massage. With that package we got a FOC foot spa. well we got to choose either a jacuzzi bath or the foot spa we chose the later.

The treatment was great, the used excellent massage techniques, we fell asleep through out the treatment. only that the product used was aromatically weak, which defeat the 'aromatherapy' purpose, you get what i mean?

They have great facility from swimming pool to manis and paddys, spas...i'm not sure if they had facial treatment.

True Spa is located at the 4th floor of Jaya 33. I did some searching (online) and i notice a lot of negative sentiment mostly due to difficulties on getting a spot / appointment but we find that it is not the case. we never....well at least for now had any problem on setting on our appointment dates so i guess its just a lousy luck then?

btw this is not a paid endorsement just a mere show and tell (hence the lack of info of the establishment)
The waiting area



This was where we got our complimentary foot spa....arghhhh its been a long time that our feet got some pampering.


mind the ugly leg =p...my feet,foot, legs was so happy with the spa treatment. i mean so doesn't...the relaxing massage and all ^_^
heeheheh can you see the smile on my feet? =p

The spa room where we had our aromatherapy massage. We didn't get to use the shower nor the jacuzzi coz its was not apart of our package, booohooo~ but we enjoyed the relaxing massage

Product Review: b.liv Off With Those Heads

I may be selling i Nuovi's products but it doesn't mean that I do not have any other favorite. I do have other makeup favorite like...i do love MAC, Giorgio Armani, Bobbi Brown hmmm just to name a few but I don't like 'all' their range just few selected products that is actually suitable for me.

And today I thought of doing a product review on b.liv by Cellnique. I'm writing because I simply LOVE this product. While I surf around the net i get mix review on this product but for me I only have 1 opinion that is it is a great black head remover product...ok ok before you skeptics question me, just hear me out...
First of all when i use this product it didn't magically remove my blackheads, which when i first use this product i thought that its a disappointment but then... when i examine closely my pores (after an over night application) it seems that my pores are slightly enlarged and I noticed that my blackheads are almost on the tip of my pores so i gently pushes it and wallah...it came right off!!!

Its amazing, it came right off with out the 'extra' effort (we all know that black heads are stubborn and painful to rid off) and painless too so thats why I LOVE it!! After removing it cleanse it and apply toner and whatver skincare you have. Then you pores will be 'back to normal'...no worries your pores did not get any larger that it already is. ;)

Yes it does need a little work (no magic in puffing out the blackheads) but it is non the less effective blackhead remover. You can simply save a couple of hundreds of facial treatment with just this product and do you own facial at home....

My verdict in the nut shell:-

Would i buy again?:    YES definitely. 
Do i like it?  :   Isn't it obvious? I love it!
Does it work? : Hell yeah....though it does need some work but it still works
Whats the price? : its USD$49 Malaysian RM I'm not too sure but its not all cheap so that a bit of a downer
                            the bright side is that you only use just a tiny amount on the affected area... : -/
I think its available in selected Watson or Guardian ...

Pixie Cut is IN



hi, i know that its been a while and I'm sorry. I was busy with my son's birthday and in between being sick and tired...but anyway i was sitting and resting while watching TV and E! did some kind of coverage about fashion and hairstyles and they spotted the latest look/makeover. The Pixie cut.

To be honest I'm not a big fan of the Pixie cut but as i briefly scan thru some of my Mag and it seem to be true Pixie is IN....every well it seem that lately many celebs are sporting the cut. We know famous pixies that totally rocking the look Charlize T and Halle Barry (these to superstars can rock any look if you ask me) but then slowly the style is picking up and stars like Katie Holmes and bff Victoria Beckham is sporting the look (well Holmes did a slightly longer and more edgy pixie look) and they pull it off then I'm not sure the time line is but Alissa Milano did the pixie cut and she look slick and stunning. Then we see Natalie Portmen rocking the look well she kindda have to coz she did shave her locks but regardless she looked STUNNING and more out going if you ask me. Then we also have Salma Blair, Mena Suvari, Sharon Stone and even Jamie Lee Curtis...and i think theres a long list of celeb pixies that seem to be blocked in my mind.

But now the more recent Pixie is Ema Wotson. Yeah she chopped off her signature long wavy locks for a Pixie look...I was surprised to see her new look, but i think she look fabulous although I kindda prefer her long locks (call me bias but i love long locks esp if its wavy lol) She chopped of her locks right after finish filming the last Harry Potter.

She says in her FB
"Dear all. Cut my hair off a few days ago... Feels incredible. I love it. I've wanted to do this for years and years; it's the most liberating thing ever. Hope you like. Big love from Emma x"

I guess its true when ever i cut my hair shot that is how i feel too. I cut my hair alot...its rare of me to have LONG hair. Its mainly because i have fine hair and its too much of a hassle for me to deal with it especially when you are a hijab wearer so a short boyish hair or pixie is the way to go although i never went Pixie before coz i have chubby cheeks hahahahaha but anyway its a great look for thick or fine hair and if you have great facial bone structure it'll be even fantastic as it'll show character and people will notice you in an instant!


What is Pixie cut?

A pixie cut refers to a short woman's hairstyle generally short on the back and sides of the head and slightly longer on the top. Women began exploring shorter hairstyles in the 1920s[citation needed] and was widely popular by rebelling women known as flappers. The pixie cut has occasionally been brought into the spotlight, being worn by world famous stars and models such as Alyssa Milano, Natalie Portman, Keira Knightley, Rihanna, Katie Holmes, Agyness Deyn, Mandy Moore, Elisha Cuthbert, Victoria Beckham, Ashley Greene, Lauren Holly, Nena, and, recently, Emma Watson.

Depending on the style, pixies range from as short as a half inch in some places to two or three inches long in others. Pixies are very easy to care for and can be worn casually, or dressed up for special occasions. - source: Wikipedia.














And here is Emma with her new look...i think she look stunning don't you think? but i don't think that i can rock this look though ;-)

Applying False Eyelases a tutorial by Kandee Johnson

I love Kandee Johnson, she's a Celebrity Makeup artist and she makes the best makeup tutorial ever! i love her, although Michelle Phan and Panache81 does great tutorials too but i love kandee's most. Then i just discover Audfaced, she's fantastic too especially in special effects makeup, look them up in You tube. I'm sure you'll love them too.

Anyway here is Kandee's tutorial on how to apply mascara, listen and watch carefully coz she gives out tips too.

In case you missed her tips:
  1. Bend the fake lashes so that its in shape.
  2. make sure you get the glues on the ends of the lashes (because this part usually is hard to stick)
  3. once applied touch up the lash line with eyeliner, so that it'll look more natural
  4. * you can gently curl up your lashes after applying the false eyelash.
  5. apply mascara gently after applying false lashes so that your lash and the fake lash mashed together (it'll look more natural)
Fake eyelash usually doesn't need any cutting but it depends. Try and see your fake lash, if it fit your eye shape nicely. watch this tutorial below...


I hope that this entry will help you in applying your falsies. This may take you some practice but its worth it coz it'll make your eyes VavaVoom~

Spring Inspired Makeup: Like Flowers we play with colors

Morning Beauties....
I'm having the worst flu ever, i keep sneezing and tearing (watery eyes) its horrible! But lucky for me, i've done the spring inspired makeup last Friday night just before i had this horrible flu. So right now i'm blogging with a sore nasal and watery eyes, therefore i'm gonna be quick.

Since its Spring inspired makeup, i'm using colorful eyeshadow for this look. Its fun to make and fun to wear too.


 For this look i use:-

FACE:
Inuovi Skin Tint foundation in 3Y
Undercover Concealer for dark circles
Loose Powder 4Y
Cheek Blush in Dolly
Blush D36 in Fairy

Eyes:
D27 Fairytale
D27 moss
Trucolor D30 in Rich Gold
Fixit eye primer
Liquid Pencil in Ebony
ProLash 01

Lips:
Megelips Velvet Shine in Barely French

*Additional Tip*
Outline upper lip cupid bow with highlights or pencil concealer in lighter tone. this like make the lips look more well defined and highlighted. For a more 3D look, before applying gloss dab a highlight eyeshadow to the middle of your lips (upper and lower, in the middle only) and blend a little.

When i applied the eye makeup i use an eye primer Inuovi Fix it on one side and non on the other. You can see the difference. The eye with Fix it application have a more vibrant eye color.
Fixit is a professional makeup fixative. No mess, no fuss, the perfect solution for anchoring eye and face makeup. FixIt is a professional makeup fixative in a clear, lightweight and quick-drying formula. Composed of Chamomile water, this quick dry formula is non-sticky and oil free. Use with Colours D27, Dust or Glitteratti

Makeup look using iNuovi Professional makeup - Tutorial

I'm sorry because of the poor lighting the photos. It has been a really moody and rainy day, I took these pictures in the morning when it was going to rain so i was loosing day light (natural light) very fast, that is much needed for a photo shoot. So i had to turn on the lights later, but non the less i think it turned out great despite the yellow-ish picture (my house has only yellow lights ...)




For Face i use:
Face:
Litebase foundation in 4Y
Perfector concealers 3Y and 4Y
loose powder in 4Y

Blush:
Entice
Fairy

Lips:
Ivoluxe lipstick in Lush & Blossom
lip definity (lipliner) in bare





For the Eyes i use:
Suade
Moss
Cat's eye
Fairytale
crystalline
techno
(yeah i know whole lotta eye colors, buts its all about blending and layering ^_^)
Liquid pencil in ebony
browcake in taupe

Prolash 08


 the difference that it makes with and with out pro lash.
i was using pro lash 08.



_______________________________________ .............
ok i did this 'diagram' on how to get the look and mark numbers on areas to apply the eyeshadow. Its not perfect, but i hope you get the picture.

Before you start to apply any eye makeup, i suggest you use eyebase/primer first. This way you'll get the true color of the eyeshadow and helps to prevent creasing. Apply eye base after foundation.
  • Area 1: is the area that you would want to apply highlights. Apply Crystalline in area 1, this area is on and above brow bone. Its the bony area area of the eyes. Apply this right up to the inner corner of the eyes.
  • Area 2: is the area that i want to start to layer, i use fairytale or any pastel pink hue will do. Pink is a beautiful combo with green, its unusual but its beautiful! besides i want to soften the look other wise your eyes will look too engaging ^_^. Blend Fairytale on the crease just below the brow bone.
  • Area 5: I only mark it near the inner corner but its actually the whole eyelid. apply the lightest green shade - Suede on the entire eye lid, blend it towards the outer corner eyelid (according to your eye shape) blend it upwards. Also apply it at the rims of your eyes, below your water line.
  • Area 4: Center of eyelids. Apply a similar eye color but more intense, in this care is Moss. Apply to the center of eyelids, blend outwards to the outer corner of the yes. Then layer it also below your eyes below waterline.
  • Area 3: Its the outer corner of the eye and its where you want to start creating depth. Use the darkes shade of green, I'm using Cat's eye. This color is brilliant in creating smokey eyes effect as it has dark almost black under tone to it but you can still see the green, its A Mazing! anyway, just dap a little of it, dust it off a little once you dab (this will minimize mistake) then apply on the outer corner of the eyes, from the diagram, area 3 is actually overlapping on area 2, 3, 6., its like C shape, apply starting on 3 then blend it to 6 then 2, with the excess of the application. This will create the smokey effect.
  • Use clean blending brush to blend everything out. Then use a flat liner brush to line your eyes with Cat's eye as close to the lash as possible and around the rim of the eyes. then blend a little, up wards /out wards.
  • Area 1.1: Lastly inner corner of the eyes near the tear ducts. Apply a dab of Crystaline. this will give you a more open & bright eye look.
and we are done! I hope that you understand my explanation and walk through. Any question pleas ask or just comment, we LOVE comments!


p/s: I'll try and do a better instruction with step by step picture next time.

Color POP: 2011 Spring/Summer Makeup Trend

 Color Pop is seem to be the trend for this spring/summer makeup trend. Color pop is statement making colors that are bold and beautiful just like the butterflies in Spring time. Beautiful colorful shades and bold lips, glitters and electric eyeliner is what has been featured in Fashion Week and will surely live into the Spring/Summer 2011 season. Dior is sporting the colorful bold look...

For this Entry I've recreated a look sampled from Malaysian's Women Weekly January 2011 issue using iNuovi makeup line.





For this look I used:-

Face:
iNuovi Litebase: Light Diffusing Liquid Foundation in 4Y
iNuovi Concealer: Perfector in 3Y and 4Y
iNuovi loose Powder in 4Y

For Eyes:
iNUovi D27 Eyeshadow in Plasma
iNuovi D27 Eyeshadow in Mayonise (for highlights and outline rim of eyes and near tear duct )
iNuovi Liquid Pencil Eyeliner in Ebony
iNuovi Illusionist Mascara in Jet Black
iNuovi Browcake in Oak

Blush: (a combo of)
iNuovi Colours D36 in Entice and Fairy

Lips: (i did a mixture of to get that orangy red hue )
iNuovi Ivoluxe Lipstick in Apricot, Shock and Doll

I have to admit though the lighting is horrible, i did this look in the middle of the night when all of my kids are asleep (no interruptions) hence the bad lighting and low quality pictures.For better picture quality i need loads of natural lights.

anyway i think i did great on recreating the look, don't you think? please leave me a comment, your comment are very welcome here!

i did one with this shade (fairytale) i coupled it with techno (brown), as you can see in the picture i apply fairytale at the corner of my eyes near my tear duct for that open fresh eyed look. i love it...i love fairytale its so sweet and cute, you can just wear as it is and put eyeliner and mascara to finish and you'll look lovely just like that!
