Having Fun With Avon Make-Up

asian beauty blogger

First of all, I just want to say a BIG thank you to everyone for showering me with baby love in the last couple of posts.  The Husband and I really cannot wait to meet her!!!  Anyway, for more personal updates, you can follow my other blog, Lingspiration, and it’s back to business with beauty talk today 🙂

A couple of months ago, Avon kindly sent me a generous care package filled with beauty products galore.  I had lots of fun playing with them and here is a make-up look featuring Avon products.  Let me break it down…


Look At Me! Easy 4-Step Smoky Copper Eyes with The Body Shop

Look At Me!??!!  Geez, what a narcissistic title!  Actually, please don’t look at my face – I was testing a new BB cream which did NOT photograph well.  BUT, check out my eye make-up!  For once, my eye make-up skills are not shockingly bad because I basically, followed the instructions at the back of The Body Shop 4-Step Smoky Eyes Palette in Smoky Copper…defined my brows with yesterday’s FOA HD Brow Kit and added false eyelashes (gotta fake it!)

I was glamming up for a Date Night with the Husband when I decided to try and recreate a seductive smoky eye – but I looked like I had bruised eyes with my first freestyle attempt.  So I decided to rummage through my make-up stash and then I came across The Body Shop 4-Step Smoky Eyes Palette in Smoky Copper – which was part of a gift bag from a blog event.  I knew it was time to crack it open and put it to the test.


FOTD : Sweet Tart Beauty Breakdown


FOTD, beauty blogger, Asian girl, make-up

Without disclosing personal stuff*, I have been feeling a bit down lately… One of the reasons was the fact that my neck decided to give up on me and not function for 3-4 days.  I was on a lot of painkillers!  (I despise being so dependent on pills!!!)  Anyway, my neck is still not 100% and I am still undergoing treatment for it but on Monday, I could finally move it again and that’s when I managed to put on a real smile, apply some make-up and do a fun video.

Seeing as I got over 50 likes on Instagram (thanks peeps!) and I got inundated with requests (okay, there were only 2!) about my lippie shade on the make-up look I wore for my Big Hair Styler 1000 video, I thought it would be cool to name my look Sweet Tart and do a beauty breakdown of the products I used.


Moody Cow Make-Up Look

Once a month, my Husband knows not to mess wit’ me because I become a Moody Cow!!!  I will give off Evil Eyes, Chiselled Cheekbones and a Bitchy Pout; but I try not to frown because I don’t want frown lines!!  LOL

My Husband will try and defuse my moodiness by trying to make me laugh with his dorkiness.

“You look SO HOT when you’re moody!  Keep pouting!!  Oh yes, it’s turning me on!!!  I love Moody Cowwwwws!  Mooooooo!!!”

Yes, he is a dork!!  LOL

For the Moody Cow Make-Up Look, I used :-

L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique BB Cream | Bobbi Brown Wild Rose Shimmer Brick | Brows Up Eyebrow Pencil | Urban Decay Naked2 | Youngblood Gel Eyeliner in Black Orchid | Revlon Lip Butter in Cotton Candy

Do you have a monthly Moody Cow moment?  It was actually hard work looking moody and intense for the photos!!  I wonder how Victoria Beckham does it all the time?!!

A Make-Up Look With Only 3 Products!

It has been sweltering in Melbourne recently with the crazy heat.  It’s been so hot that I have not bothered with full-on make-up and just kept products to a minimum.  Here’s a Face Of The Day I wore last week where I only used 3 make-up products.

The 3 products used to create this look are :-

1.  Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes Mascara :  I can go without eyeliner, but not mascara!  (Click here for review)
2.  FACE OF AUSTRALIA Lip Quench SPF 30+ Forbidden Fruit :  This is a highly pigmented red lippy, but I applied it lightly using fingertips as a stain on my lips and cheeks and it gave a lovely rosy glow.  (Click here for true swatch)
3.  Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss Colin :  When it’s hot outside, I like to keep my lips moist with lip gloss and this sheer orange-red is one of my favourites.  (Click here for true swatch)

For my face, I could have used BB cream but I chose to go bare-faced but piled on my zinc oxide sunscreen (look, no white cast FTW!).  And I’ve been getting some nice compliments about my skin and it’s mostly due to the Rationale Skincare evening routine and my new beauty gadget – Hitachi Hadacrie which I shall be reviewing very soon.

And yes, before you say anything, I really need to do something to my hair!!  I’ve been having a lot of bad hair days recently!  LOL.

Can you do a make-up look with only 3 products?  What are 3 make-up items you cannot live without?  And what did you think of my FOTD?
