How to work pink shades

As mentioned in previous entry, pink is the new black. But how can we work out the shade, without looking awkward and Barbie-ish? Here are some tips that I dug out from Harper’s Bazaar and some are my own personal opinion.

  1. Most pink eye shadows can make the eyes look tired, so go for a soft pink with a golden undertone. I have used it on my friend and it does bring people to look at her windows of soul.
  2. Sugary-sweet pink does not suit everyone. Try to make a statement with hot fuchsia lips instead. Remember Sophie Ellis Bextor? She rocks the colour. Urm, just try it at your own risk.
  3. A cool-toned pink lipsticks works wonders to whiten teeth. Look for ones with hints of blue. For lip gloss, I would suggest T.LeClerc Lip Gloss in Violet Givrée (RM75).
  4. For perfect rosy cheek, put your biggest smile and brush from the centre of the cheeks, making gradually larger circle that swirls outwards–so that the blush application fade out nicely and makes you look natural. The secret is the brush stroke.
    I just found great product that would saves your time doing this is Benefit’s Posie Tint (RM 139)–you just dab it onto your skin and blend it nicely. Seriously, it will make people say “Hey, you’re blushing!” instead of “Urm, are you wearing blusher?”. Unless you put on a lot of it. Uh oh, it can also be applied on your lips.

Nuffnang gift ideas

They (Nuffnang kompeni laa) promote Nuffnang gift idea and urges me to give a gift to another Nuffnanger. I browse the items, beauty and health shelf of course, and found this (GINTELL eye massager).
eye massager
It reminds me of a Nuffnanger who had eye problem. Once upon a day, she had severe problem with her left eye and was required to take MC due to it’s severity.

I know she needs this since she’s a workaholic mom and she wears contact lenses. Being a contact lens wearer myself, I know that one needs to take extra care for the eyes. Can’t wear the lenses more than 8 hours, can’t wear lenses when there’s insufficient liquid or moisture in one’s eyes. Can’t wear lenses when one is sick, and the list goes on. (I know, I know, beauty is pain)
kakred eyes

So this product would be an ideal gift too Kak Red because it:
– Promotes stronger blood circulation
– Prevents the onset of near sightedness
– helps to reduce tension and fatigue
– helps to Prevent eye bags and wrinkles around the eyes

Wah. Prevent eye bags and wrinkles around the eyes? Can I have it as well? It would be extra bonus if this eye massager has the function like Cyclops’ (the X-men, not the Greek’s myth) eyes, will make a good weapon for people who ogles me, innit?
