Femme Boulevard: Vamp

It’s still end of July, and in some places, it’s still summer, and in others, it’s winter. We decided to do something different, and by that, we’re feeling vampy. The first thing I thought of was to pull out my darker lipsticks. How exciting :-) Then, I was debating whether to keep my eyes minimal, or to go all out dark. I haven’t been playing much with eye shadows for a few months now, and I took this opportunity to actually use some of my eye shadows! Dark eyes it is. I was going to use black only but….. it kinda got out of hand. Heh!

For the base, I wanted something flawless, so I used my newly purchased Lancome Blanc Miracle SPF50 liquid foundation, set with my well loved Lancome Maqui Blanc Miracle powder foundation. To avoid looking like a goth, I added some pink using Dior Rosy Glow blush.

Sunday Stash Shopping #26: 4 Dior Rouge Samples

So who here doesn’t know Dior Rouge and Dior Addicts are my favourite formula in lipsticks? I’ve had this sample for months, and I didn’t use it. I honestly didn’t know what I was thinking, but I’m glad I opened it for this post. The shades have been out for a while already, so you probably have seen them. The shades are 999, Grege 1947 (169), Darling (567) and Trafalgar (539). I decided to wear them with cooler metallic eyes so I took out my neglected Urban Decay Naked2 palette. For foundation, I used my MUFE HD foundation which still has about half a bottle left.

Femme Boulevard Goes On Vacation

This month, we decided to show you vacation looks. What makeup would I wear during a vacation? I just came back from Hong Kong recently and it was really hot there. So, I shall share with you REALISTICALLY what I did. For realz. I was out and about the whole time, mostly in the sun, hence there was bound to be sweat and grime. I was hardly in air conditioned places, and it is IMPOSSIBLE for makeup NOT to melt in 33 Celcius hot and humid weather. Even at night, we’d be walking so much, it’s hard not to sweat. So, for that type of vacation, my staples are a hat, sunscreen, sunnies and wet wipes.

Sunday Stash Shopping #25: Liquid Liner

The return of the liquid liner. If you read my previous posts, you’d know I’ve been skipping liners, but hey! Not only have I been using eye liners, I’ve been using liquid liners! That only means one thing: I’m not gagging and vomiting anymore. Yay! Well, I’d still feel nauseated sometimes, but not as bad as having to run to the washroom. Now, say it with me: WOOHOO!!!

I’m still keeping everything simple, and it’s a look without any eye colour. Just an eye liner and a mascara. Of course, this look can be done using a pencil liner, but the line won’t be as crisp. Gel liners are a great substitute if you find it easier working with a brush, but I’ve wanted to use up my one and only liquid liner – the Diorshow Art Pen which I reviewed before. Sad thing it isn’t waterproof because it’d be perfect otherwise. I think I’ll be searching for a more affordable liquid liner after this, so any recs appreciated.

Favourite Look: Pregnancy First Trimester Edition

Well, I’ll be into my second trimester soon so I thought I’d tell you what I’ve been doing most of the time for the last 3 months. You know what they say about pregnancy glow? If you get bad morning sickness, forget about the glow. Let’s get real here. Do you know what bad morning sickness does to you? If you haven’t experienced it before, let me scare you a little. Bear in mind I’m already in my mid 30s and people did say that morning sickness gets worse with age. That I might agree because this is the worst ever.
