Inspiration 11

Posted on

Porcelain complexion with raspberry / wine lips, sans blusher / eyeshadow.

FYI, I am not a huge fan of Twilight but this vampish style is really stunning.

What’s your favourite wine lipstick? I got myself NARS strawberry field lipgloss after coming across this cover.


LPB August 2010 Favourites

Posted on

I am currently enjoy using Spiezia Organics facial cleanser, a handmade cleansing cream that contains a unique blend of herbs and oils that have decongesting and soothing properties.

To protect my skin from the harsh sun rays, I armed myself with Invisible Zinc tinted daywear. Laura Mercier mineral foundation primer is a must in summer, it keeps skin matte and smooth despite the humidity & heat.

Kiehl’s midnight recovery concentrate is a botanical version ( or a poor man choice ) of Guerlain’s midnight secret, in my opinion.

Nude smoothing body refiner should be the body product of the year, I had bulk purchased this after trying it. It’s a cellulite fighting product that works! I swear by its effectiveness, so far, I had only used it about once a day, for less than 2 weeks, but I had managed to slip into my skinny jeans again.

For a wash of colour, I am using Chanel pink teaser lipgloss, NARS daphne, rajasthan & tzarine eyeshadow, NARS douceur blush. Pink Teaser is a candy pink that instantly brightens up my lips while Douceur adds an incredibly healthy flush to my cheeks. Rajasthan & Tzarine, well, these fabulous hues define & add sparkles to my eyes.

NARS bronzer brush is probably the best powder brush ever made, it’s so versatile & I am so dependent on it to give me the best blending / finishing. Chanel’s inimitable intense mascara never fails to add a lovely sheen to my lashes.

I am hooked on Moroccanoil range, its glimmer shine spray is a life saver when humidity & frizziness strike. Despite the rather overpowering fragrance, glimmer shine spray tames & illuminates my maine like magic.

Guerlain’s Shalimar & Chanel’s No. 5 are my current favourites. I like to wear classy perfumes on a hot breezy summer day. I am notorious for my eccentricity when it comes to scent. I even used  Chanel No. 5 eau premiere to freshen my room & laundry! I am also busy experimenting with Chanel’s Bleu.

Perfect Day

Reading my bible, I mean Vogue while sipping Henricks G&T, on a breezy afternoon.

It’s good to be watching the world goes by, on a weekday. Monday blues? Not  today.

I shall update my blog soon, after the splurge over the bank holiday weekend. The postman will always have to ring more than twice.

Blending Chanel ombres contraste duo in Gris Subtil over lids. Blotting NARS pure matte lipstick  Vesuvio over lips. Coating Lancome definicils precious cell high definition amplifying mascara over lashes.

Salutation & class may be hereditary; Glamour & elegance are all about the right products & attitude.

Shanghai Red

Wear a simple little black dress with dashes of red & gold, simply exotic and mesmerising; like a trip on the E&O train, Shanghai in its 30s……

Keep your complexion flawless with a sheer wash of luminous foundation; Groom your perfectly arched brows in dark ( not harsh ) colour; Wear an ultra black mascara; Sculpt your lips in meticulously matte red.

Bank Holiday Weekend

Yes, it’s time of the year ( again ) where online beauty stores generally offer a 10 – 20 % discount on their products.  I will be busy shopping online for some fantastic offers.
