Hello bunnies! Guess what? It's a blog entry about fashion again yay! I think I am probably going to blog more about fashion styling tips from now on so that people will eventually recognise me as a qualified fashion blogger? Hahaha, guess I should take it slow! I'm blogging more about fashion recently because I receive more comments on my blog entry concerning the latest fashion trends and mix-and-match tips than other posts of different categories such as food.
Well, honestly I really do not consider myself as a trendsetter nor a fashionista. But I certainly love discovering and trying out new styles! But of course, I will never force myself to dress up in something which I don't feel comfortable with.
Anyway, I'm inspired to dress up like a Japanese-school-girl today! Speaking of Japanese school girls, my instincts reminds me of the collared-top and skater skirt combo right away! Isn't their school uniform attractive?
The protagonist of this outfit.
Collared-sweaters are always a perfect piece if you are intending to create a student look.
These photos were taken reluctantly by my brother. I had to please him by offering a cup of Starbucks before he agreed to help me with the shooting haha!! Nonetheless, I am quite happy with the outcome!
It was drizzling that time when we wanted to carry out the shoot. The thought of holding an umbrella struck me out of the blue and it seemed like a pretty good idea!!
Anyway, the bowler hat isn't something which I will wear usually but this time, I decided to accessorize my outfit with it. Additionally, I am wearing my new socks which effectively brought about a twist to the entire outfit.
What do you think of this outfit? Is it "Japanese" enough?
Hello there! Let me start off this post with a question for all of you: "When was your first time putting on makeup?"
Many people started applying makeup when they are still studying in high school. As for me, the interest of wearing makeup got to me when I was...sixteen or seventeen, I guess? I only started wearing coloured contact lenses when I was seventeen haha! Well, maybe for some other girls, they already started to dress up nicely and wear makeup since they were younger!
The person who inspired me to apply makeup is undoubtedly my mum. She is the one who started teaching me what are the functions of each cosmetic and she always guided me when I first started wearing makeup. Back then, I always asked her: "Mum, why do girls need makeup? I think makeup is the vain girls' thing." LOL! Then my mum would explain to me how the magic of makeup can make a person look presentable and confident, and some reasons girls have to wear makeup in certain occasions. Thanks mum, now your efforts created a vainest girl in the world ahahahaha!
Anyway, my everyday makeup routine is very simple! So today I'm gonna share my favourite makeup products and my basic makeup routine with all of you. (This is not a makeup tutorial ah, just a simple sharing of my experience) ^_^
Of course I don't put on any makeup at home!! Anyway, before you start applying any makeup base/foundation, remember to apply moisturizer because it is the key to keep your skin hydrated and fresh!! :D
These are the products I used for my daily makeup routine. Yeah, only 5 items lolol.
1) Apply foundation
I'm using Stylenanda 3CE Glossing Waterful Foundation (Natural Ivory) Honestly, I don't usually like applying foundation because some of the foundations I own are slightly thick in texture. And people say foundation will actually (as a side effect) make us appear older!!
However, I LOVE THIS FOUNDATION FROM 3CE!!!! As you can see from the picture, it has a high water content and is really moist! Usage of this foundation will, in days to come, help you to get a healthy and glowing skin effortlessly. Nonetheless, due to its less-concentrated contents, it couldn't cover up pores, blemishes and your flaws to the perfectly definite extent.
The bottle of foundation comes with a dropper, making it super easy and convenient to use!
2) Apply concealer
Here, I am using Benefit's Fake Up Concealer to conceal my dark circles and redness on my face. It is a very hydrating concealer and it doesn't add creases below your eyes. If you are searching for a dilute-inclining and hydrating concealer, this is a good pick. However, this concealer has its limits: if your dark circles are really, really heavy, perhaps nothing would help other than sleeping earlier :p
Here's my appearance after applying foundation and concealer!! Next, I would need to add some "colours" on my face!
3) Apply Lip Tint and Blusher
Haven't seen this product eh? It is actually a new product from Yadah which will be launched during December. But thank you Yadah for giving me the privilege to try them first hand before the product launch!!
The Sweet Milky Tint comes with two different colours, which are Sweet Cherry and Sweet Pinky.
These bottles of amazing milky tints serve TWO functions: To act as a lip tint & a blusher!!
They are 100% FREE from artificial colouring, preservatives, mineral oil, sulphate and animal extract. In simpler words, less scary chemicals hohoho!
Apply a suitable amount on your cheeks. For a cuter look, apply it right on the apple of your cheeks. For a more V-shaped face, apply it over the skin of the cheekbones region.
HAHAHAH DO I LOOK CUTE?! Btw, I am using the Sweet Milky Tint in Sweet Cherry as my blusher here! :D
Gently spread it throughout the cheeks~~
For lips, I used the lighter shade of pink which is the Sweet Milky Tint in Sweet Pink! Of course, if you would like to have a more obvious color on your lips, apply Sweet Cherry!
To give my eyes an instant "boost", I have all my faith on the Bloom Mascara from Yadah!! :D
This Bloom Mascara gives a superior volume to your eyelashes! The best part of it is that it is water-resistant! So, you can even wear them to the beach!! :P
TIP:Pull out the wand in one motion, as pumping introduces air to the tube and this can lead to drying out.
I applied thin coats of mascara on both my upper and lower eye lashes. How's it? :D
4) Apply highlighter (sometimes I might skip this step if I am in a hurry HAHA)
Ever wondered why do Korean celebrities always have a "glowing" face? That's because the features of their face are enchanted by wizardly highlighters!!
Glam up your face with the 3CE Shimmer Stick to add a soft glow on your face! :D
Apply the shimmer stick on your T-zone and C-zone to highlight your face features! :)
Can you now see the glow on my cheeks? :P
OK, DONE!!!! Told you my makeup routine is super easy and fast hahahah!!
Where can you get the products I am using? All the products above will be available starting from December 2013 at selected Sasa outlets in conjunction with Christmas! On the other hand, you may purchase them online at websites such as www.zalora.com.my, www.hermo.my and www.mivva.com
All the 3CE products I own are from CHERRYBUNNYY! It is an online shop which sells 100% authentic 3CE products all the away from Korea!!
Well, I guess that's the end of this blog entry! Thank you for reading and don't forget to leave me a comment to tell me that you like my makeup lolol. JUST KIDDING, feel free to tell me about your opinions!!! :D
As much as I love monotone fashion, sometimes I do enjoy wearing vibrant and chic colours like NEON colours. I'm not sure whether you notice it, but YELLOW colour seemed to be the HIT colour this year.
Some examples of how people pull off the neon yellow trend:

Amazing shoes in neon yellow!
My all-time favourite fashion blogger - Kristina Bazan. SHE IS PERFECT.
Alright, now it's my turn :D
Quite disappointed with the lighting here! :(
When I still had my colourful dipdye, I would MAKE SURE that I curled my hair before going out for shopping or photoshoot. Dipdye doesn't look really nice on straight hair. However, ever since I cut my hair, I became lazier to style it. There are days when I wake up with its naturally wavy style and I like it! Surprisingly my hair looks thicker and voluminous after I cut my hair! (But sometimes, I do have bad hair days T_T )
Anyway, back to the outfit I've featured today!
I matched my neon yellow knitwear with a pair of electric blue disco pants. I always wanted to get a pair of disco pants which fits me the best but too bad, I couldn't find my size anywhere. It's saddening that sometimes I couldn't even wear petite pieces from Topshop! But this pair of high-waisted disco pants (which I will be selling on Bunnykisses) suits me perfectly!!
The Neon Yellow Knitwear is also from Bunnykisses and there is only ONE piece left!! I am really satisfied with the material and it is such a comfortable piece to wear. Additionally, it is actually a cropped knitwear which definitely suits petite girls like me! :P
So it's December already. They say December is always the best month of the year. Probably because December is also known as the "holiday month" where people get to enjoy their holidays to the fullest. Oh, and not forgetting to mention, getting presents during Christmas.
Honestly, I am not prepared for 2014. It seemed like just yesterday I have celebrated CNY for 2013. Time flies. I hate it.
Because people change when time passes by.
But also because of the test of time, we get to know who are the ones who will stay in our life no matter what.
