Helloooo muh lovelies! I’m back in action! Hopefully, with more constant posts. *tee hee*. Yes, I got a new hairstyle and color. I basically just cut it short for easier maintenance. My hair has been dropping so much since pregnancy and hence my decision in chopping off my long locks. Alright.. let’s move on to the tutorial below!
Step 1: EYES
MUA Pro-Base Eye Primer – Apply from lid to brow
SuperStay 24H Concealer, “Light/ Beige Clair” – Apply under the eyes
YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch – Apply under the eye to brighten up under the eye area
Colors used for the eyes
Sleek Cosmetics Oh So Special Palette, “Gateau” – Apply all over lid
Sleek Cosmetics Oh So Special Palette, “The Mail” – Blend crease out
Sleek Cosmetics Oh So Special Palette, “Box” – Blend inner crease
Sleek Cosmetics Oh So Special Palette, “Bow” – Highlight below the brow
Sleek Cosmetics Oh So Special Palette, “Celebrate” – Apply onto lower lash line and smudge out

MAC LE Eyeshadow (lost the label!) – Apply onto inner tear duct. Any frosty white eyeshadow that you have will do
Maybelline Hyper Glossy Liquid Liner, “Black” – Draw your eyeliner as usual. I decided on a natural line instead of a winged liner
UD 24/7 Glide-On Pencil, “Perversion” – Tightline. This makes your eyelashes fuller.
MUA Mega Volume Mascara – Apply 2 to 3 coats of mascara
Step 2: FACE
NYX Pore Filler – Apply all over face as a base
UD 24/7 Concealer Pencil, “NSA” – Apply onto any red spots/ blemishes and blend it out
Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation, “Nude” – Apply all over face either with your fingers (that’s if you’re comfy using your fingers) or a brush. I use the Sigma’s F80 flat top kabuki brush.
MAC Mineralized Skinfinish, “Natural” – Dust all over face to set the foundation
Step 3: CHEEKS
MAC Limited Edition Prolong Wear, “Sun Dipped” – Contour cheeks, temples and below the jaw
Barry M Blush, “BL2” – Apply onto the apples of the cheeks
Step 4: LIPS
Maybelline Color Sensational, “910 Shocking Coral” – Apply lip color to your lips accordingly. The lip color is actually really bright but somehow under natural lighting, the color didn’t turn out as bright/ vibrant.
**Optional: You may add-on any lipliner and lipgloss of your choice.
Step 5: OPTIONAL
Falsies – Apply falsies of your choice. I don’t usually wear falsies unless it is a dramatic look or for dinners/events.
Step 6: HAIR
Applied a heat protectant oil and straightened hair with a hair straightener.

What do you think of my new look? Short or long, light brown/ ombre pink or dark brown hair? I was so sad to see my locks being chopped off. It took me about 2 years to grow to that length. And yes, my hair grows really slow. I almost wanted to pick up my locks and frame it up or something but didn’t want to look like a crazy woman trying to keep spoilt hair for memories. What posts would you like to see from me? Feel free to let me know in the comments below. Till then, Toodles!
