Far: Everyday Makeup tutorial / Benefit Make up review??

hello! because I have been feeling uber lazy to think up of hijab styles and also I dressing up because I am a whale, I am going to make it up to you by sharing this simple benefit makeup tutorial and review!

We shall start of with my lovely (not) bare face!

Next, I applied Benefit's Hello Flawless Oxygen WOW. This is a sample I got, but am loving it! it really covers naturally, doesnt cake and is hydrating and already has SPF! SCORES! will buy this when the sample runs out. I am using Champagne color.

before Hello Flawless

after Hello Flawless, and looking better already!

Next, I am using Benefit's Fake Up concealer. It doesnt really cover like their Boing, but its super moisturizing and doesn't settle in the creases under my eyes. Yes I have major lines now and my baby isn't even out yet.

 This is how it looks like, see the white opaque ring? thats the moisturizing ring:) cool isn't it? it also glides easily so it doesn't pull on delicate skin.

Just glide under eyes

and dot on your various blemishes and pat in and blend!

 Like I said natural but not industrial concealing, hehe

I got this Benefit Kit from my brother and sis in law for my birthday called Do The Bright Thing, and for this simple everyday look I will be using the Dandelion all over face powder, the eye liner and mascara.

how it looks on the inside.. I love benefit things because they are so pretty! and fun to use:)

This is dandelion face powder, it looks a little dull, but it goes on really sweet and light. You can apply this to the whole face or just the apple of your cheeks. Like I did:

Apply a few time on the cheeks as it can be quite faint, any excess you can sweep on your forhead, nose, and chin for extra subtle glow. See how my cheeks are flushed but not overly pink? i like it like that, you can always sweep on more :)

This is the mini BadGal waterproof eyeliner. It packs a mean punch and doesn't drag on your skin! win!

Apply on bottom lashes all the way in if possible and on top! I usually thicken my lines on the outer corner of my eyes.

Next I apply Benefit's creme eye shadow in 'no pressure!' over my lids while smudging a little of the eyeliner in, I prefer to do it this way that eyeshadow first then eyeliner because I feel it gives me a better smudge. You can skip this if you feel that the eyeliner is just enough.

Last but not least, my number one favourite Benefit item ever!!!! "They're Real' mascara in black.

So here's the trick, there are tiny brush spikes on the top of the wand, which you are suppose to push your eyelashes up like so.. 

Then apply mascara like normal, I do about two coats.

Just look at how crazy thick my eye lashes are!! and this is taken by my crappy camera phone!

so tadah! thats my everyday look! well, when I feel like it, hehe. 

ps: look at my lashes!! please go and buy the mascara, trust me you will never regret paying Rm 90 for it!

also i just put lip balm on my lips:)

love, far!

pss: my baby is due this week! please pray for us!

Happy Mother's day!

I am almost near home run! at 37 weeks pregnant, my baby is full term and ready to pop anytime :) These 37 weeks of pregnancy has taught me a whole lot more than any class, book or any other experience and this is only the beginning!! Being pregnant has taught me to be healthy for reals, no fad diets, no toxic chemicals but good wholesome nutrition. It has taught me patience and perseverance for the sake of someone else's well being. (Imagine pain from the top of your head until down to your toes and beyond and not giving in to the temptation of panadol), pregnancy is only the tip of the iceberg maybe not even the tip just a scratch of impending motherhood that will last till the day I die. Pregnancy has made me more aware and conscious of what my mother has gone through to raise me and my siblings, and its an eyeopening experience I treasure. With the coming of my beautiful baby, I will understand even more and more the sacrifices my mother has made for me and our family. And I will be proud to be a mother soon.

MOTHERS ARE AWESOME!!! So give a hug to your mother today and treat her to something fun and let her know how much you love her.
