FOTD w/ Tutorial: Smokey Peach, My First!

I've been wanting to do a smoky look for such a long time! And this look comes with a tutorial. Also something I have not done before. A soft smoky look perfect for summer ^_^

Products used for this look:

Use the light pink colour from Majolica Majorca palette as base over entire lid. Also use the same colour on the inner half of lower lashline. Next, use the peach color from Elianto over base near to upper lashline and outer half of lower lashline. Blend both colours well.

Use Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner to line the entire eye. I lined it thicker as it will not be visible due to my single eyelid. Top up the peach shadow again after applying eyeliner to make the colour brighter and blend them together to smoked it out.

Curl your lashes and apply mascara to upper and lower lashes with Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus. After this, line your waterline to fill up the sparce areas between your lashes that are not yet filled with eyeliner.

The overall look. I'm using Maybelline Clear Smooth Shine Free Face Powder over my entire face. Next I applied MAC Trace Gold blush on along apple of cheek.

Finally, MAC Creme D' Nude on my lips topped with Boy Bait.

That's me posing with my makeup goodies again XD

FOTD: Hot Maroon Pink

Hah, I sucked at giving names to my FOTD rite...

Later you'll know why I posed with a lipstick heehee...

I tried a look here using my Daiso palette, this palette is dirt cheap but the colours show up so well and pigmented, totally worth the buy!

And I'm being super poser with this makeover, you'll see why... :)

I did a few poses which imitates what the other bloggers did, I find them so cute! Let's see if you can identify them from the below pics :P

Me posing with my palette, admiring it :D

Later on, with my lipstick. It's my Way to Love. Muakzzz...

Let me show you the difference between having eyeliner on your eye and without them. The one with eyeliner looks bigger and more energized (is this the word to use?). Definitely makes my single eyelid eyes larger.

My Expanding Makeup and Accessories Storage

Lately my makeup items are facing lack of storage. Don't get me wrong, I don't think I'm really buying very much but I just feel like they deserve some nice breathing space so that I can find them easily :P This will definitely make me to use them more and not forgetting their existence.

Ignore the messy area and some pic collage behind my drawers @.@

Not any special storage drawer (in cute pink!), but a spacious one though.

I love how they feel so comfortable in their new home! :D

Let me show you also what's inside my other drawers. They have more space now and I can see my stuffs more clearly compared to last time :P Presenting my very humble collections of makeup (still a bit messy though) :P

I hauled again last weekend. MNG is having 50% sales now! Again, I was frustrated I was too late to find good stuffs from this sale :( Known about the sales a bit too late (two days late), also considered late coz all the girls here are crazy about MNG sales.

Anyhow, I still managed to buy a clutch and a cute mini sweater.

In straight jacket style...:P

Lastly, I would like to post my special thanks to my ji muis (sisters) for their wonderful birthday gift. Guess what they gave to me? Number one on my wishlist hehe...see, wishlists are not there for no purpose :P

I heart this mascara so much. Definitely my HG mascara right now, makes my tiny lashes looks gorgeous and more defined :P
