MY EVERYDAY MAKEUP ROUTINE 2014


I apologise if you were looking forward for an outfit post but I figure I'll share some makeup that I love with you instead even though I'm no expert in this aspect. Anyways, it's be fun for us to exchange some tips and tricks,right?


1. Maybelline Pure BB Mineral BB Watergel: To be honest, I am currently scouting for a new BB cream but don't get me wrong, this one works just fine. Being a waterbase bb cream, it still gives me a bit of coverage and obviously, moisturizes my skin without making it feel oily. Moreover, I like applying bb cream with a damp sponge as it gives a smoother finish. I indeed have nothing to complain but I do want to try something new as this tube has lasted forever. Any bb cream recommendations are appreciated.

2. Za perfect fit concealer: I read about this product in a Japanese magazine when my Revlon one was running low so I decided to give it a try. I have to say, this is by far the best drugstore concealer I have ever tried. Covering the redness and dark circles on my face, my skin looks quite glowing and flawless after using it. Surprisingly, after doing some research online, I found that Za is a subsidiary of Sheiseido and is mostly sold in Asian countries like Singapore, Japan and Hong Kong. Unlike other drugstore concealers that sold in Hong Kong, this Za one actually provides three shades to choose from (others often have two shades only) which never hurt anyone.

3. Rimmel Stay Matte Powder: I guess there's no need to talk much about this powder as every girl with oily skin knows it and uses it. It is quite longlasting as it says on the packaging but still, it cannot eliminate the shine around my nose for long which is fine as I have super-duper oily skin in that particular area. (sigh) It controls the oil on my forehead nicely though.


4. Blush by Daiso Japan in orange: Let's conclude my feeling for this one in a sentence - absolutely loving this bronzy-orange shimmery blush, especially for its price.

5. High Beam by Benefit: To be honest, I use it only when I have more time or I want some extra glow on my face, i.e. weekends that I actually leave the house. I put it on the high points on my cheekbones, cubid bow and my cheeks but not on the bridge of my nose as it doesn't look good there with unknown reason. Wondering if it just bothers me or others find it weird on the nose too.

I use some random eyeliner and brow pencil to tightline and fill in my brows and both of the products are not buzz-worthy so I guess I'll just end my little "review" here. I am sorry for the lack of posts recently as I kind of  lose the motivation to blog due to the craziness of school. I will try to get my life together and strike a balance between studying and blogging so please bear with me. Hope you enjoy and I'll see you all soon. xx

DENIM FOR FALL








Is it just me or the temperature has really cooled down a little bit in the past few days? I guess it's because of the rain but I just cannot stop thinking about fall.

"Tans fade, highlights go dark and we all get sick of sand in our shoes. But the end of summer is the beginning of a new season."

The approaching of the new school year somehow reminds me of this quote from Gossip Girl. Maybe summer is only beautiful because it slips through our fingers so easily and so quietly. We want to catch it and hold it but we can't. All we can do is to savour the moment and perhaps, enjoy it a little bit longer. Sadly, I have loads of summer assignments to deal with but I'll try to make the best of the last week of summer. (at least for me)  How about you? How's your summer going? xx

SUMMER SPECIAL #3 : STUDIO GHIBLI LAYOUT DESIGNS





(My long-lost friends, Lavinia and Stacey, and I.)



(Cute stickers that visiters draw.)


(Me on the tummy of Totoro. hehe)


(I thought this poster was really funny and cute.)


(Chihiro and no-face from Spirited Away.)

I visited the Ghibli Studio layout designs exhibition in the Hong Kong Heritage Museum with my friends about two weeks ago and here are some photos we took. Too bad that photos are not allowed in the exhibition but there were plenty of photo-spots for us fans. It was amazing to see the original drafts of some of  my childhood favorites like Totoro, Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle. Totally fascinated by the productions of Studio Ghibli, I also saw the effort they put into each animation. From sketching, coloring to actual filming, it's a very long process and they had been providing us with fabulous entertainment since their first film, Castle in the Sky, in 1986. It's a pity that Studio Ghibli has announced that it was temporarily halting production following the retirement of  Hayao Miyazaki.

The exhibition will last until 31st August. Don't miss the chance and definitely go check it out if you love their films!

STAR FERRY





(I know it's so random and weird but I somehow like this photo a lot.)



(My wing eyeliner kinda failed that day.)




(Me being out of focus again. lol)



Hey lovelies! Today, I am bringing you the second part of my last post (kinda) as I travelled to Tsim Sha Tsui for cupcakes again by star ferry after the exhibition. It was such a fun experience for me as I seldom take the ferry.  Too bad that summer break is kind of over for me as there are tons of supplementary classes in August  or I will go out more often for delicious food and nice spots for shooting. Sorry for rambling about school everytime I write a blog post but as we all know, that can be very annoying and overwhelming sometimes.

Back to the casual outfit that I wore, I spiced it up with some white chunky heels that I adore and recently got from Topshop. I love how the t-shirt has a pop of blue as it somehow matched the weather that day and made the outfit more summer-appropriate with a little bit of color. I hope you enjoy this post as much as I do. xx

SUMMER SPECIAL #2 : ACGHK



As the most popular summer carnival in Hong Kong, ACGHK is packed with the best selection of animation, comics, games, toys, limited edition collectibles and a variety of hit-hot performance and  activities to keep spirit high.



(The lighting of the photo is too bad so I turned it into b&w.)




(Sakura Momoko a.k.a my childhood memories.)


(Doraemon!!)




(Actually Iron Patriot is my favorite because of the color combo. lol)




(Some cosplayers I captured that day.)

I guess this post is quite unexpected for you guys because I am not particularly into animation and games but I recently accompanied my brother to the ACGHK, an animation and comics expo held every summer in the HKCEC. My brother and I didn't find this year's fair very interesting as the portion of  animation had been reduced. However, we did have some fun in the event. Above are some photos that I took and I hope you enjoy. :)   xx
