Lina: Everyday Easy Makeup Tutorial

Hello my darlings!
My internet has been acting up the past few days and I had a hard time trying to upload a video on Youtube. Finally, I managed to do it just now! YAY! So here's what I promised you, a makeup tutorial on my everyday look. I put this on almost everyday when I want to hang out with my friends at the mall, casual dinner or lunch,etc. It's very simple and basic. May be beneficial for those who are beginners in makeup. All of the products are still available in drugstores and the brand's stores. No discontinued products used. Bear in mind that this is my first tutorial video. I don't have a good camera, I have very little knowledge in video editing, but this is what I managed to do. Hope it's fine! Enjoy :)

Don't forget to follow my Youtube channel and to follow this blog! :)
Thank you!

Haneesa: The Michelle Phan Experience..

Hey guys J

So this is gonna be a really short post on a small, but sweet experience of mine. It's not going to be on something crafty or DIY - it's actually a beauty related post, which is actually Lina's specialty.. Check her out at this link ;)

Anyway, I’m actually a big Michelle Phan fan, and a few nights ago she had an impromptu live chat session with her fans for a whole hour.
Lucky for me, I had been leaving her website lingering on my browser so when I refreshed it again at about 1 am she had just posted this:

And it was only an hour away - No way was I gonna miss this!

So I stayed on, and when I finally got to the chat, it was mayhem! There was this non-stop clicking noise indicating a new message and I immediately started posting my question. I think I asked three times before, to my absolute surprise and delight….

she answered me.

My question...

...and her answer!

I’m happy beyond words, seriously! If I may never be able to see her in life, this opportunity was just awesome enough for me! >.< I think there were like 20 questions going at her at once, so she could only answer a one or two in one go..
And yes, I  know it's a pretty simple answer, but like I said before it's a small but special experience ;P

Imagine how crazy I would be if I actually met her o__o

So, besides that, I thought I should share some other tips that I found helpful too like

Nevertheless, there were all those doubters who were all like "Is this the real Michelle?" or "I think this is just her representative".. well to you guys I say: PFFFT! She sure sounded like Michelle! Plus there were many personal questions about her too like which games or food she liked. So there you go. Seriously, you guys should’ve gotten answered by her. You would’ve gone nuts. J

And that's it, my short and sweet experience. If you had the same conversation that night or have some other beauty tips you've learnt from her, just leave a comment below~ 
Take care guys!

Lina: My Everyday Products

Hello my darlings! Finally, a proper blog post from me! Here I would like to share with you the products that I use everyday and which are also my favourites, of course! These products give me the natural look and flawless baby!

Prep + Foundation + Concealer

 *Top left to bottom*

1)This is definitely A MUST for me after I put on my moisturizer. I realise that moisturizer only helps me to soften and hydrates my skin, but does not help my makeup to stay on for long hours,especially since I have oily skin. So my makeup fades easily if I do not use a primer. My favourite primer is Sephora's Smoothing & Mattifying Primer. This primer prevents my face from becoming oily or greasy!! So my makeup stays on for a whole day! AWESOME!

2) I like to use liquid foundation mainly at night. But if I have really awful acne during the day (you know when), then I will dab on some liquid foundation to have full coverage. I've tried many types of liquid foundation throughout the years and most of them are too thick or heavy (my face would start to sweat) but oh my gosh, I feel like MaxFactor is a gift from up above! Max Factor introduced its awesome-est liquid foundation ever (I think about few months back), MaxFactor's Experience Weightless Foundation! It's TOTALLY weightless, and it feels as though Im not wearing any liquid foundation at all! I really don't feel it, but it's there, making my face looking flawless!! If Im not mistaken, we don't have MaxFactor stores in Malaysia, but we do have their counters in Metrojaya. If you're looking for a liquid foundation right now, just get this one. No questions asked! :)
-Im using Dark Gypsum 80.

3) I've been using this concealer for so many years. It's been my friend for a really long time: Maybelline's Angelfit Perfect Concealer. It covers up any of my blemishes, dark spots, and dark under-eye circles really well! I like to use a concealer brush instead of my fingers because I tend to be so harsh with my face if I use my fingers. I don't want any form of fine lines or wrinkles to appear due to my 'aggresiveness', so I need to use brushes.
-Im using Natural Beige 02.

4) I can't leave my house without wearing this: Bare Minerals Foundation. It is by far the best powder foundation to me. It gives me that smooth and flawless coverage, without any clumping or caking my face later on. I know some powder foundation cakes your face but this one doesn't, regardless of your skin type. It's weightless and feels like you're not wearing any makeup at all, yet giving you the best coverage! And the best thing is that you only need to use just a little bit to have that full coverage. Saves your money and time too! After that, sometimes I put on Bare Minerals Mineral Veil to set my make up, especially if I have any liquid foundation on, to have that matte look.
-Im using Medium Beige.


1) My favourite blusher is Elianto Touch On Blusher. Some blushers that I used last time did not stay on after a few hours and I don't know why I tend to forget to bring my blusher in my makeup pouch. This one stays on a for long hours! hooray! Sadly I always have problems with the sponge, mine just won't come out properly so when I put it on my face, I cannot see the blusher! So what I have to do is to take off the sponge, and use a blush brush, VOILA! :)
-Im using Tea Rose 02.

Eye Makeup

*Top to bottom

1) I have super oily/greasy eyelids, so an eyeshadow primer is important to me! Before putting any sorts of eye makeup, I put on Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion so my eyeshadow and eyeliner don't crease at all! Really, this eyeshadow primer helps my eye makeup to stay for a really really really long time! REALLY!! :)

2) I have no idea why I can't use pencil eyeliner for my upper eyelids. I need to work on it! Hands tend to shake. :( Im a fan of pen eyeliners, it works great for me and I apply it better! My hands don't shake if I use pen eyeliner! Weird, I know. Oh well, whatever works well for you, just go for it! I love this Maybelline HyperSharp Liner. It's so 'thin' and sharp, 0.05mm baby! It gives you the precision you want! Perfect for those who love face art too!

3) As for lower eyelids, it's definitely best to use pencil eyeliner. I like to use MaxFactor Kohl Pencil in Black. It's good for those who have watery eyes, like me, it won't fade away eventhough your eyes get watery later!

4) Another MaxFactor superb invention: MaxFactor's False Lash Effect Mascara. Oh.My.Gosh. It gives you double the size of your lashes!! It voluminizes, thickens, everything! It's waterproof too! So if you feel like you're tired of putting on falsies, give yourself a break, and try this incredible mascara!! I've recommended this to many of my friends and family, and none of them are disappointed with it! :)

5) Before mascara, don't forget to curl your lashes. My favourite pick is Shu Uemura's Eye Lach Curler. It's one of the best lash curlers in the world. It curls just so perfectly, and you only need to curl one time!

1) Im a huge fan of pink tones when it comes to lip items! Most of my lipstick collection are of pink shades. My fav lipliner is from Stage in Pretty Peony 03. It is soft pink with a hint of peach. 

2) Next up is my number one pink lipstick: NYX Lip Smacking Fun Colours in PARIS. It is super pink, like Barbie pink!! The best pink shade I have in my collection is this! 

3) Lastly, to have that glossy look and sexier looking lips, I like to dab on a little bit of gloss. I use NYX Lip Gloss in PEACH. You can see that it's almost empty already, shows that I really LOVE IT! The colour is just perfect and goes so well with any of my pink lipsticks!

So there you go, my favourite products that I use everyday! Next post will be a makeup tutorial video, using all of the products mentioned above :)

Emma: Something's up my sleeves

Hello awesome chicas! guess what? Emma's back!
i'm terribly sorry for the long hiatus. i've been very much occupied with assignments, debate, and final exam. Now that i'm done with ALL that, i have so many to share with all of you!

first, i'm in the midst of trying this particular aerobics routine. it's quite intense but definitely do-able. if you're up for it, you can definitely perform it too! instead of posting a dance routine, i thought of posting an exercise routine that can be done in a large group. the more, the merrier. and you'll have lots and lots of fun too!

but here's the catch, i'm not gonna post this particular video yet :). give me some time to try it out before finally deciding to upload it. we, the writers, might wanna give it a shot first. woohooo!!

also, as part of my segment, i will also be sharing my knowledge and information on various topics like self-esteem, relationships, parenting (not that i have any experience in it), and the list goes on. these are just some of the info i've obtained through research. since i have them in my tiny brain, why not share it with all of you. that way we can all learn together right?

so, stay tuned to our blog for more info! and keep checking it out for the video that you might anticipate :)

yours truly,

Far: Four different ways to wear the jumpsuit with hijab

Salam girls!

I have been wanting to do this post, but haven't gotten round to take artsy awesome pictures of my outfits, and I still havent!! but Im hoping you girls wont mind seeing my plain old pics, hehe, at least you can get some tips and ideas for inspiration so as to not shy away from this trend.

All of the pics below sported this jumpsuit from Valley Girl.
I bought one in black and one neutral khaki color as shown below:

As you can see, its really form fitting on top, and really sexy. Our job is to unsexify it without cutting out on style!

First look:

Here I wore a black jumpsuit, and gave it some kind of definition with two thin belts. The pink belt is actually a long beaded necklace! if you have a short waist like me, opt for thing delicate belts, if you have a long torso go ahead and rock a thick belt!

Wearing a belt underneath your jacket or cardi adds dimension without showing off too much of your curves.

My pink lacey "jacket" is from old blossom box. Check her wonderful things here.

Second look:

You can even wear a jumpsuit for work! if you wear it as pants!Here I wore a vintage printed shirt with a loose vest for some shape.

Third look:

Please excuse the horrible self cam whore picture. But this is my favorite look with the jumpsuit. With a long printed cardi, it covers most of your curves and is a fun enough piece to wear as a statement. Im also wearing a long pendant chain to draw the eye downwards for a slimmer look. It also subtly adds a little something to the bare middle.

My hijab style was fashioned out of two hijabs and a belt that came with the cardi.

Last look!

This I must admit lends all of its style factor to the gorgeous matador style bolero. This one is also a vintage piece from melbourne and was a great steal! most of the ALL of my outer layers in this post were bought at vintage stores, markets and bazaars. So please scout around your area for great one of a kind pieces!

Breaking it down:

1) break a simple jumpsuit with belts (thin belts for curvy girls, thick for skinny) and long pendant necklaces. You can wear beaded necklaces if you have a slim upper body.

2) play around with lots of jackets, cardis. Both plain solids and prints are great to keep and go with jumpsuits, maxi dresses and lots of other things!

3) Don't look at the jumpsuit as something that is only reserved for special events! you can always dress it up or down for a casual day. Be Brave and play lots of dress up!

hope to see you girls soon!
