So… So… Vain

October 4th, 2008 · 4 Surrendered

There! It’s been a while not posting any photo of myself. These were taken last Thursday before going to the wedding banquet. I think this post might scare some people off from visiting my blog.

Ah well… It’s been a while not doing all these dressing up thing because I’m very lazy.

All the above are heavily editted at the eye area because of my eye bags, dark circles and the slightly swallon right eye. All these were so obvious because of the lighting in my room that gave heavy shadow below my eyes.


The only photo that isn’t editted is the second one.

Notice that my eyes were bigger than usual? *LOL* Just some makeup tricks, the right eyeshadow and double eyelid tapes.

As for my hair, it took me about 1 hour to sort of straightened them.

This whole dress up thing took me about 1 and half hour ;p Girl… What to do? Here’s the products that I had used:

I didn’t use much products, just basic ones. Guys, don’t be surprised, this is just very little. There are people that are using so much more products than these, these are just the basics. Normally I only use foundation and blusher. Mascara is only when I’m in the mood.

Face: Maybelline Angelfit foundation in light ochre, Boots No7 High Lights Illuminating Powder(my sis got this from UK), and in2it blusher.

Eye: Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow-Liner Birthday Suit and the brown colour of Shiseido Eyeshadow BR754, Everyday Mineral Multitasking Concealer, Maybelline Volum’ Express Hypercurl, and Guardian Double Eyelid Tape.

Lips: I just realised I forgot to take photos of the lips products that I used! So absent minded. Basically they are Lip Ice Fruity as the base, then Sheer Color and topped with Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Pink Crystal.

Hair: Heat protector, straightening iron, and mousse. Lazy to list out the products’ brand ;p also forgot to take photo of them.

Oh ya… First time camwhore with my new camera after dressing up.

    Ooh… where did you get Boots No. 7 and Benefit eyeshadow? I’m guessing your sis bought for you from the UK. Am I right? 🙂

    Boots, from UK, my sis got it for free as she bought some other things and they gave her this as sample. Since she already got a highlighter already, so she gave this to me when she’s back.

    Benefit, I won it from Advertlets+Faces contest ;p My sis tried to look for it in UK and it’s so much more expensive than US.

    Ah… I got one right then. 😀 I know Boots is not available here… but Benefit is. Come to think of it, we don’t have a lot of brands here. MAC, Stila, Paul & Joe, Urban Decay… just to name a few.
