SHOP/REVIEW Brighten up the Face with lovely shades from Make Up Store

One of my favourite makeup brands is Make Up Store. The most colours have a longwearing finish, which is a must for my oily lids and dry cheeks. In the past months, I’ve been having fun with a few products from their last launch. Here are three products that I find easy to use and practical and enhance my features:

Make Up Store Eyepencil Duo in BLUE PIGMENT, $27
An all-new long-lasting Eye Pencil Duo with 2 shades, Blue Pigment is a pencil with two shades, both light and dark blue. Depending on the angle you hold the pencil, you can have two different shades of matt blue on your eye in just one stroke–by applying the tip of the eye pencil almost vertically. Extremely easy for inner and outer line application with just one glide. Alternatively, tilt the eye pencil to apply on the side of the tip for your preferred shade. Blend for a softer look using an Eyeliner Blending Brush for best effect.
I love this eye pencil for the sexy soft look it gives my eyes. What more, tilting the pencil at various angles will give me different intensity of blue. The pencil is easy to use and great only on upper eye lid. Smudge the blue penciled in line a little with your ring finger to achieve a soft finish. For oily eye lids, avoid using under the eye as the colour slides off easily. Bring a cotton bud to clean under-eye smudges, if needed.

Make Up Store Duo Lipstick in GRAPHIC, $29

Nourish your dry lips with shea butter and avocado oil while giving them a touch of longlasting colour. This new DUO lipstick in Graphic is a soft pink duo lipstick with a nude colour in the core. These two shades give an instant 3D finish to the lips.
At last a lipstick that offers longlasting lip colour without leaving lips tight and dry. I took a sip of water while wearing this lip colour and found that the lip stain on the cup is less than my regular lipstick.

Make Up Store Marble Blush in ROSSO VERONA & RITSONA RED, $32 each

Featuring a sensational combination of bright pink, red and purple tones to create multi-toned blush that offers a beautiful blend of intense cheek colour.
My other favourite from Make Up Store is this blush that gives my cheeks a three dimensional finish. The blusher lasts through the day, leaving me with healthy pink cheeks even when I am feeling low. A little goes a long way, so dust off excess powder onto a tissue before accentuating cheeks with it.

Available at Make Up Store.

REVIEW Brow Embroidery experience at Allure Beauty

Allure Brow Embroidery
Our brows frame our face. And the perfectly shaped one will enhance the whole face. Although brow pencils and regular brow grooming is still the norm, some women prefer having their brows etched semi-permanently into our skin. Brow embroidery, as explained to be does not go as deep into the skin as brow tattoo. Mostly importantly, I left the session without any redness or swelling on my sensitive skin.  

The therapist put in more than an hour to design a pair of perfect brows for me, from pencilling in the brows to shaving off non-flattering bits to creating a semi-permanent brows definition for me. I am amazed that I didn’t get any reaction from the session which includes working the colour pigment into the top layer of my sensitive skin.

After the session, I was told to take care not to wet my new set of brows for a week. When washing my face, I was to paste a special surgery plaster over the brow area to protect them from getting wet, so that the skin could recover faster and prevent any infection. A special cooling antiseptic gel was given to me to apply a few times a day to keep the skin around the wound moist and free of infection. I didn’t manage to get the plasters in time. So I used a “non-rinse” makeup remover/cleanser to cleanse my skin. Fortunately the healing went well without any incident.

My verdict? Shaping my brows before getting out of the home used to take quite a bit of my time. This new set of Allure Signature brows has shortened the time I need to apply my makeup. I am so glad that this new brow embroidery has solved my issue with the thinning brows close to my nose. However, now that I know better, I would have opted for my brows to be filled more naturally. So what happens when my natural  brow grows back in a month’s time? I was told to simply get brows groomed and shaped regularly, and for me it’s at my regular Indian brow threading therapist’s.

My mum, a seasoned brow embroidery customer, loves my newly arched brows. She loves the new shape that replaced my natural down turn brows.  

So what do you think?

The concept behind Allure one stop eye brow service
Allure uses the golden ratio that most brow experts use—just like the one makeup artists use to shape your brows during a makeover. This Golden Ratio is a concept that even Leonardo Da Vinci uses in his art pieces to achieve perfection. Using The Golden Ratio to design a pair of brows brings balance and proportion to your face, while also bringing you a step closer to perfection.

How long will the brow embroidery last? Up to two years on normal skin and if you do not use whitening or AHA over the brows.
Senior Staff $1,380
Principle Trainer $1,680
Price is inclusive of touch ups within a year (1st touch up to be done within one month of the eye embroidery session.)

REVIEW/MAKEOVER Anna Sui Beach Collection Eye Makeover

REVIEW/MAKEOVER Anna Sui Cosmetics Beach Collection
Models (left) wearing bright eye colours Vivid Yellow and Turquiose Blue and (right) Metallic Black eye colour
A few of the main colours from this collection may be bright and cheerful with shades of yellow or cyan, or dual purpose with the black cream eye shadow. If these aren’t your cup of tea, check out how more sophisticated silver and gold hues which Anna Sui Cosmetics makeup artist Bernice chose brightened my face and day.
Knowing my preference for more sophisticated and wearable makeup, Bernice chose the more ‘muted’ but no less sparkly eye shades from the current launch.

This enhanced close up was taken after I got home. Bernice dabbed some Moist Powder Base Eye Shadow No 802
 over inner corner of my lids to show that it can be subtle too if I do not pick up too much with my ring finger
1.      Silver creamy eye shadow was used as an eye makeup base as well as to create a sophisticated glossy base colour to brighten the eyes.
2.      A subtle gold powder eye shadow was then layered over from the inner corner of the eyes and used to rim both the top and inner corner of bottom lid to brighten eyes and prevent smudging.
3.      A dark brown matt eye colour, generally known as taupe was used over the socket line to create depth.
4.      The eyes were then lined with a black eye liner pencil and lashes further enhanced with Anna Sui lash voluminising and lengthening mascara.

Eye colours from right (in order of application): Cream Eye Shadow No 051 Metallic Silver, and Moist Powder Base No 602 Shiny Orange, from the Beach Collection and Anna Sui Eye Shadow No 503 from the classic range


Lashings of Anna Sui Perfect Mascara was applied over my mascaraed lashes to further enhance my lashes. 


Enhanced with Anna Sui Eyebrow Color Compact No3 


1.      The cheeks were subtly enhanced with Rose Cheek Color N No 303 for a natural finish

1.      The lips were filled and lined with orange coloured Anna Sui Lip Crayon No 600

2.      Anna Sui Protective Lip Gloss No 300 was brushed over with a lip brush to smooth out lip lines and give a more natural glossy finish.
Like this? You can request for a makeover session with Bernice too by making an appointment at Anna Sui Cosmetics at BHG Bugis. Her availability is based on her schedule. I am suggesting Bugis here as this counter is offering a 15% discount on all Anna Sui Cosmetics items that are in stock. 

As my eye makeup usually smudges at the end of the day, here's how the range fares on my skin.

Eye makeup hardly smudged 4 hours after the makeover

This is my haul from the Anna Sui Beach Collection Makeover. How will you fare?
Spending the day at the beach with this handy Anna Sui Beach Bag that is given away with purchase up to a certain budget. It comes with an Inner Satiny bag containing my Anna Sui Beach Collection haul.
