    Default Guide to Makeup

    Hi guys,

    I'm coming up with a guide to makeup.
    Reasons being that I seem to be running low on time and can no longer help people with their makeup... and... well... cosers without makeup... you piss me off.

    This was initially on my blog: aSliceOfMagic.blogspot.sg

    and then, when ICDS came around, Jason got me to make a page for my booth.
    So now it's also on Facebook!! https://www.facebook.com/KouzukeRanArtistry

    So... as and when I have a new installment of what ever I'll update this thread, hopefully it will be helpful to you guys.
    I'm starting out with the more basic concepts, perhaps later on I'll branch into tutorials?

    ** Feel free to PM me about makeup questions. I will do my best to help out.

    So... let's get the ball rolling...

    Thanks very much! According to your Cosmetic hygiene article, my make up is beyond contaminated. I'll be following your suggestions for my new make up batch. =)

    lol
    so long it's not smelling funky, you can probably still use it though!!

    honestly, I really can't be bothered to be hygienic for mascara...
    lipgloss is alright... but mascara.... ><

    Funky and smelly make up goes straight to the bin! Like food, it will go bad after a while. My Mascara just dries up after a while since I don't use it much. So sad...

    mine lasts for ages... because... I don't use it... haha... I just junk them as and when i feel like it.
    it's a pain in the ass to apply mascara... cos my eyelash will somehow touch my eyelids and transfer mascara... OTL
    my lashes are chibi short and they still can touch... wth....

    so i basically leave my mascara to rot... and junk...

    Mmm...

    I can't say I have much experience with brands... but...
    this is my experience...

    I have combination to oily skin (you know... things change... sometimes)

    I've tried the Loreal HydraFresh Anti-shine All day hydrating & matifying ICY GEL
    It worked quite alright, but my skin got really tight and dry after using up most of the bottle.
    It has tht menthol cooling feeling.
    The drying effect wasn't good for my skin, so I stopped...

    And went back to the moisturizer my mom bought for me and my sis.
    ORIGINS Make a Difference (gel formulation)
    Note that origins has a cream and a gel formulation with the SAME name.
    It absorbs well, leaves a thin film on the skin, which takes about 30mins to 'go away'
    Quite alright, but it doesn't have much effect in matifying the skin.
    Price is also higher than the loreal one.

    Alternatively, you CAN go for those lines of skincare which use natural oils (eg: Rose oil)
    Renew or Sukin are carried in most watsons.
    These are CREAMS.
    BUT they do absorb well and help with healing the 'wounds'.
    I really liked using that one... but it's exp...

    Also for your acne and pimples, it might help to invest in a bottle of tea tree oil.
    it stinks but if you apply it to the spots or wounds (if you burst a pimple) after washing and moisturizing your face,
    it will help with the healing process.
    Try not to go for the products containing tea tree oil (e.g. face wash), but really get a bottle of the stuff.
    those don't really seem to work

    Completely ♥ Asahi's videos.

    This video is comprehensive of many good basics AND it's hilarious
    BUT ignore the parts regarding dry weather, because Sg has only 2 kinds of weather. Wet and wetter.

    Also, note that she's an ambassador of Relvon.

    De-rail a bit.
    I wasn't intending to do makeup service for AFA this year, too swamped with school work and... actually want to ENJOY AFA instead of rushing around because people were LATE.
    But... too many people have spammed me with SMS-es in the last 3 days regarding makeup... OTL

    sooo....
    Makeup slots for AFA 2012 is up.
    Bookings can be made via PM, FB or email.



    Currently booked slots

    #07 - Brushes vs Sponges Part 3 (Eyes) (NEW!! 8 Dec 2012!!!)

    Yep... another new one!
    Quite a larger gap in between the issues...
    I'll try to do them more regularly...

    Gotta get inspiration for the next issue first though...
    The brush vs sponge series... is pretty much done?? just left with lip stuff... which... isn't exactly... revolutionary...
    So I guess I'll give that a miss.
