I just realized that liquid concealers aren’t working for me lately. I’m not sure if it’s due to the weather or my eye cream but I have been having problems with the rice concealer from Skin Food I’m trying out as well as those that I’ve been using for awhile. After a few hours of application, my undereye area looked horribly unsightly with obvious lines showing up or worst, my makeup looking altogether blotchy! So for the time being, I’m sticking to my powder concealer to avoid another makeup disaster.
I was actually quite hesistant in getting the Organic Surge Pure Extracts Refreshing Toner. But because I’ve already ran out of my usual toner and couldn’t find an alternative quickly, so I got it eventually even though I was uncomfortable with the long list of ingredients, many of which don’t look familiar to me. But thank goodness this toner has not given me problems so far.
My mum returned me the mineral powder foundation I got her a couple of months ago, saying that it’s not suitable for her. My best friend, who tried some of the samples I gave her also had few good things to say about them. It looks like, despite the raves, mineral makeup is not for everyone. While I’ve been using mineral makeup for about a year now, and I do like it, but I do have some gripes as well. Since I’ve been experimenting with compact and loose powder again these couple of weeks, I thought I’ll put together a quick comparison of these three from an amateur’s standpoint.
I used to love flipping through Japanese fashion magazine to get inspirations when I was younger. They’re always so refreshing! When they’re not the loudest, they’re the the most creative and the most coordinated. I mean, you can always spot a Japanese woman on the street by her most impeccable dress sense and perfect style.
Anyway, I found some lovely designer classy smart casual wear on the website of Onward Kashiyama and thought I’ll feature them here. I love these outfits for their simple cuttings and intricate details. Check out those pretty hemlines! So contemporary and feminine!
