SWATCHES : Illamasqua Vampette, Rude and Fusion

I have not been to the Illamasqua counter at Heeren's Robinsons for a while. I decided to pop by and say hello to Selena. As always, browsing leads to buying :)

This lipstick caught my eye. It is a deep brown with burgundy red undertones. It looks brown on its own but when swatches, it looks like scabbed blood.

Very very vampy and true enough, its name is Vampette. Vampette is in the Glamore range of lipsticks from Illamasqua. This rage is semi-matte and smooth.
With its creamy matte texture, Vampette is stunning when swatches.





I also got the cream blusher in Rude. Rude is a wearable peachy coral colour which will work best on the apply of the cheeks. The cream blusher will give a dewy natural finish. 
You can use product under or over foundation, to your preferences. I usually apply using my fingertips. Dab a lil and swirl and pat on the cheeks. Cream blusher is longer lasting. 

Lastly, i have my first Illamasqua nail polish in Fusion. It is a bronze colour with sparkles. It looks quite unusual and i like it a lot.

Illamasqua have a couple of pretty items from the latest "Once" Collection too. Drop by to check them out especially the lipsticks.

WORK/ BTS : Safra Yishun Fright Night

Last weekend, i just completed yet another Halloween related event for Safra. This was for family recreational purposes over at Safra Yishun.
They were doing a haunted house thing which look pretty creepy on its own. The theme was a spooky hospital. All the staffs wore medical uniform. I had to get the makeup done and costumes dirtied


With the assistance from Francisco, Dian and Nisa, we managed to do the entire team of about 15 pax within three hours.


I personally focus on the main scare character. Client requested for a zipper face makeup for the main character.
I did it within half hour as i already premade the wound pieces at home. For events, i always believe in prep work to avoid wasting time. 


I have two other club clients for this weekend's Halloween. My team will take care of it. I am just chilling over at Halloween Horror Night 4. THAT, i will do another entry once it is overrrr. Last show is on 1st November, like finally!

WORK/BTS : Heineken Transporter theme Party

My favourite type of make up work definitely revolves around events!
This time, i had to source and coordinate a big team of 14 talented makeup artists/hairstylists plus materials according to client's mood board. The event was successful and here are some behind the scenes pictures.

Here we have the entrance logo. Hard to miss!
A trial of the make up for client's approval. Hair was done by Ryn.

The big team at work. Very independent and easy to work with! We have Charmaine, Venice, Dolly, Dyla, Nizam, Shirley, Genie, Nisa, Sally, Hidayah, Francisco, Mia and Ryn working on their models.

Two of the models all dressed up and ready.

The models doing their thing through the night.

We had also two aerialists who performed such an awesome set! There is no photos of the hair and makeup because it was darkkkk. 

Here is a short video of the aerialists, Adelene and her friend doing their satin routine.

Stila's Eyes Are The Window Shadow Palette

I have almost zero self control for neutral matte palettes! Stila does them great too!
Their "In the Know" palette becomes a staple in my makeup kit for clients. That is a smaller palette with 10 matte eyeshadows

This beauty comes in a pretty box and golden reflective plastic case. Very classy looking compared to their normal cardboard style packaging.


There are three types in this series. This is the only one with all matte shades. All the eyeshadows are velvety and pigmented.


I will add on swatches later tonight. So much loveeeeee for the versatile colour scheme in it. 

SWATCHES : Inglot Eyeshadows and Pigment

Finallyyyyy, i had time to pop by Inglot Singapore. It is located at B1 of Wisma Atria. It is a quaint shop packed with goodies. Please feel free to let your eyes dart everywhere when you are there!

I was being modest and took a quad palette only. If you don't already know it, Inglot is famous for its Freedom System. Pick whichever individual pan of whichever product and assemble your own palette. Here are the colours i took.


I have a loveeeee for copper/maroonish tone on my eyes. I kept buying similar shades too from Make Up Store. I find warm shades are easiest to pull off even on my laziest days.


The textures are fantastic! I took 3 different textures just to sample how they are like when worn. I did not have fall outs or patchyness. These swatches are done without any base. You can see how amazingly velvety they are. 


I also picked up this pigment eyeshadow. FREAKING SHIMMERY 😍
I can't wait to wear this beauty. It is a very flattering shimmer shade for all skin tones. I wanttttt so much more from this amazing range!


I am very impressed with the quality of these babies. Definitely, i will be dropping by for another fix super soon 💜








SWATCHES : Sephora Outrageous Rouge and Kiss Me Lipbalm

I just popped by Sephora two weeks ago and picked up two lip products. Sephora just released a new line of lipstick called Outrageous Rouge Extreme Liquid Lipstick. I was browsing through and picked shade 05. Gorgeousssss red. 


I cannot say i love the texture of the Outrageous Rouge though. The colour is awesome but the texture is just weird. It dries off glossy and do not budge when you rubbed against anything. 


HOWEVER, when your lips touched each other, either top or bottom lip colour will transfer over the other leaving an empty patch. VERY STRANGE. I had a hard time removing it off my lips too. I will give it another go when i have time. Currently, veryyy busy juggling multiple makeup assignments to even have time to selfie  -__-


I also had to get that cute newly released Kiss Me lipbalm in Soda Pop. It smells heavenly. I had been using it daily underneath all my matte lip colours. Love it.

Definitely will update when i get time to wear that Outrageous Rouge and make it workkkkkk. Too beautiful for me to abandon, yet!

SWATCHES : MAKE UP STORE Atomic Lipgloss

That feeling when you get what you were hunting for...... Make Up Store LED lipgloss in Atomic!!
It is from the Scream Collection. I have been dropping by two of their stores just for it. Today, i randomly popped by the Vivo branch.
I managed to get the LAST piece. Sooooo bloody happy!

Atomic is a shimmery green/blue/black lipgloss. It is packed with pigments until it looks almost opaque. Sooooooo beautiful. 

It is out of stocked at the Somerset 313 branch, Paragon branch and now, the Vivo branch.

Crazyyyyy amazing colour especially over opaque lipsticks! It beats my Illamasqua lipgloss in Violate hands down.
