My CNY Makeup Kit

Chinese New Year's hot weather and traveling to few places makes packing my luggage difficult. Have to consider every factor in order to decide which type of apparels to bring kinda annoys me. I like to travel light usually, but when it comes to special occasions like festive season I often over-packed. Can't help but thinking I need to match every clothes with different shoes and accessories. lol. I'm an overthinking and dilemma Gemini in the end. 

So when it comes to makeup, I try to keep it minimal to "One Makeup Look for All" so I don't have to over stuff my makeup bag. So here's my Chinese New Year makeup kit:

Everything so pinkish this year
I guess I still got the femininity in me lololol.

Lately my skin condition has turn bad, breakouts here and there I kinda feel like I just wanna stay at home, refuse to go anywhere see anyone if my skin conditions doesn't get any better but the world doesn't revolve around me nonetheless I have to prep my skin to a "greetable" condition. Luckily I have these as my foundation. Kinda like my saviour of bad skin day.

Laneige BB Cushion
So much love for this BB cushion compact, easy to apply and retouch after.
My face stayed fresh even after long hours covered by makeup.

KATE Cream Concealer
natural and light, perfect for any dark circles and pimples spots or scars without over doing it.

Drawing eyebrows in the early mornings of Chinese New Year, you're sleep insufficient, you can't see clearly probably because of hangover and most of all - rushing because there are so many people wanna use the only big mirror in the house/ it's almost time for breakfast/ all sorts of rushing incident you can think of in CNY season. So the perfect solution for my eyebrow is this:

Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Eyebrow Mascara
Just brush it on eyebrows and save time to save the world lololol!
Plus no more imbalance eyebrows too.

I use this Maybelline Big Eyes palette in pink brown to create all the day and night makeup looks I need. Pink and lighter shades on the day time, just add more brown during night time to change my makeup look instantly. One eyeshadow palettes for all!

Love this palette to bits!

Maybelline Hyper Curl Volume Express Waterproof Mascara
But it is easy to remove, perfect for travel

Silky Girl blusher that gave me glows on my cheek
I use this colour very often as it really compliments my skin tone

Burt's Bees Lip Crayon - Sedona Sands

Hot weather, insufficient amount of sleep and low water intake can make your lips dry, hence Burt's Bees lip crayon is my choice of travel lip colour as the colour is subtle but yet noticeable, it moisturizes my lips all the time, and I love that it is naturally made with organic ingredients.

You're going to see this makeup very often this week in my Instagram or Facebook lol

The Year of Monkey

Today marks the start of Fire Monkey year 丙申年, how's your Chinese New Year holiday so far? Ipoh weather is hot like on fire as usual! Where's the so called cooling weather that everybody was saying before Chinese New Year? Lol 

But good weather means it is great for an outdoor #OOTD shots. Took some shots at the rooftop and am loving the blue sky as background.

Wore this new dress on this day which I purchased 2 years back when I first visited Bangkok with Peiyue. Lol! I'm a keeper eh?! Lol. A tad bit too short to my height so I guess this will be the first and last time I'm wearing this dress, am gonna help it find a more suitable owner. 

It has bee a great start of the year so far that I'm on newspaper and local TV program in one week. Feeling grateful to all the opportunities and support I get from everyone. Hope to have more chances to be in shows, magazines and sorts this year of Fire Monkey! 

Last but not least, a wonderful and prosperous Chinese New Year to all of you who celebrating and happy holidays to everyone!

My Chinese New Year 2016 Nails

My-fresh-from-the-oven-Chinese-New-Year-nails! (I kinda think the UV light thing to dry of nail gel is like an oven to bake and harden gel nails lololol). Once again, thanks to Re Birth Nail Paradise who did my nails superbly nice to welcome the year of Fire Monkey!

Love every details of my nails to bits

These nail designs kinda resembling all the prosperous wishes in 5 nails -

  • Maneki Neko(招财猫) on thumb means I'm going to rule and welcoming all the money into my hands
  • Tons of bananas on my index finger indicates I have more than enough to eat
  • Monkey holding a gold ingot on my middle finger nails, which means in this monkey year there will be tons of gold coming for me (yays more money please!)
  • Top part of pink heart shape on my ring finger means I'll meet my true love lolololol better be (Plus it's gonna be Valentine's Day soon, some love are needed this festive season).

Maneki Neko is definitely my FAVOURITE!

Banana x Monkey

The manicurist - Fey of Re Birth Nail Paradise did such a great job designing my nails, paint all the nail arts with patience, and carefully discuss with me which nails to draw what design. I dozed off for a few times during the 2 and half hour process because it is so relax and they are professional in this I can just leave my nails to them and relax. 

Some of my friends saw my nails, some like the bananas, some like the Maneki Neko, can't feel more proud to have these beautiful nails design on my fingers, showing them off like some rich tai-tais already hahahahahaha.
