I reviewed the cleanser and toner last week, so I’ll wrap it up with the moisturizer and eye cream today. We’ve established that Pai uses clean organic ingredients, suitable for those with sensitive skin. I always believe in a good moisturizer and a moisturizing eye cream, and these 2 are not too bad. Omegas are great for our skin and body, and the Pai range of organic moisturizers and eye cream are packed with these essential fatty acids. I like that they have different moisturizers for different skin types, and I chose the one for combination skin.
I have tried a few Antipodes skincare, from their multi tasking miracle balm to mask to serums. I like most of the stuff and the miracle balm is my family’s go to rescue – for almost everything. I kid you not! When I was sent its makeup a few months ago, I was a little curious. I love my makeup, and funny enough, I never thought of Antipodes as a makeup brand. Why not you ask? Well, my friend, my mind works in all kinds of weird ways
We are finally at the 2 final looks!! These 2 looks have lighter lid colours, and the accentuation is all on the crease and outer corners… and false lashes. The trick to these 2 looks is staying clean. Use smaller brushes than you think you need, and if possible, keep some clean blending brushes to soften any harsh edges. On my cheeks, I’m wearing Chanel Cream Blush Intonation and on my lips, Dior Addict Lip Glow in Coral. The false lashes are some generic ones I wore to my sister in law’s wedding, and I used these a couple more times before I threw them away. Let’s get to it, shall we?
It’s Chinese / Lunar New Year!! It’s a big thing for my family and me, the biggest festivity of the year, in fact. I want to take this opportunity to wish all of you celebrating a Happy and Prosperous New Year, with good health, wealth and schmealth (LOL!).
I actually wanted to post a few photos here, but my daughter Chloe was admitted to the hospital last night, so that kind of messed up my plan. She has gastroenteritis and I hope she’ll be better tomorrow. It totally sucks because I just don’t have the mood to celebrate! Chinese New Year is a family thing, and with one of my precious ones in the hospital, nothing feels the same. Either way, we’re going to celebrate once she gets out – and we’re going to make up for the lost few days! I will be missing in action for a few days, so don’t miss me too much
I leave you with a photo taken 2 years ago – I missed our annual lion dance this year (in the hospital with Chloe) so this one brings great memories!
Oh my, I think I love these 2 looks. So far, I’ve been feeling kinda ‘meh’ following all the instructions, but these 2 are quite flattering on my eyes. They’re relatively easy to do and the key is soft blending with CLEAN brushes. Having 2 blending brushes and pencil brushes helped tremendously I included falsies in these 2 looks to show you how dramatically different the looks are compared to the rest where I skimped on them. I guess falsies are a must for more beautiful smokey eyes, unless you’re lucky to have long thick lashes. If you do, I hate you. Now, let’s rock Vixen and Midnight.
