I Got My Eye on You
01 September 2014
Today I'll be reviewing my new set of colour eyeliners from Mizzu! They're kind enough to send me 4 new colours that haven't been launched to try :) And I personally loooove the color pigment and consistency! The creamy texture makes it easy to apply as eyeliner, eyeshadow, or even lip liner, and they're also waterproof. Maybe the first thing that come up to your mind is artsy eye-do you usually wear for parties, but actually it's applicable for daily make-up too. The key is to tone down the lipstick, blush on and rest of your make-up, and let your bold eyeliner pops out. Here are some ways I tried in each eyeliner colours for different occasions! :)
Fresh and Innocent Under Eyes
This pink under-eye look reminds me of the girls I saw on the street when I was in Tokyo; they were wearing pink eyeshadow and continuing to their apple cheeks, impersonating a cute manga-ish look (some of them use red eyeshadow / eyeliner for more gothic look), and I swear they look uber kawai! Wearing pink eyeliner for your under eye actually brighten up and make your face look fresher, no more boring daily make-up!
White / Silver / Gold: The Illusionists
I usually wear white eyeliner on my waterline for an illusion of bigger and brighter eyes, but take a note from the runway! Thank God for Mizzu's eyeliner gel creamy texture, you can also wear it on your eyelid (without poking your eyes with hard pencil liner). So wether you want to make it bold and edgy or you want to blend it to look natural, white and silver eyeliner is a must-have. How about gold? Gold is a magic color especially for night make-up! It's an instant kick to look glamorous and exotic at the same time.
Another runway trend adopted look is geometric shaped eyeliner, I'm taking a rectangular outer sides of my eyes with blue color. You can also draw a thin, bold line if you're feeling minimalistic.
The last but not least is my all-time favourite mod eye look which you may have seen almost every time in my blogpost, inspired by the sixties girls such as Twiggy and Edie Sedgwick. You just need to draw another line on your eyelid, it will make your eyes look bigger, and also draw a fake eyelashes under eyes for dolly effect. :)
So there are all simple looks with color eyeliners I do for daily look, dare to try it when you're feeling experimental! :)

wide legged pants by Nadia Leona, Zara shoes
Channeling my inner seventies boho slash rocker chick combo, I'm inspired to do a music festival inspired outfit for today. The wide leg pants is a chic and definitely not boring substitute to an ordinary maxi skirt. It allows me to dance and move freely yet it gives the flowing effect and adds the seventies groove, which matches my boho headband! :) This monochrome pants is made by a friend of mine, Nadia Leona. One of the festivals I've been to was a super-packed punk rock show, and I'm excited because We The Fest is coming real soon and I get to feel another music scene experience! Are you coming too?
vintage charm bracelet is a gift from Rio's grandma. :)
And check out this genuine leather jacket from Boda Skins! I always love leather jacket because it gives you instant rocker chick look in anything you wear. My favourite design is this quilted classic biker jacket! I'm surprised to see so many different styles and colours to pick from neutral colours to vibrant and pastels :) the super fine quality definitely worth the price, and the other awesome thing: you can customise it based on your size!
A simple touch such as headband or head wrap could easily be the highlight of your look. Here is some 3 minutes (or less) tutorial on how to do do headband and head wrap using your favourite scarf:
For headband: fold your square headband into triangle and fold it again into a long scarf. Place it under or on the top of your hair --both ways are cool-, twist it on the front of your head once or twice, and tie the rest of the scarf on the back. Done!
Wearing your scarf as a turban:
Only works for square scarf. Fold it into triangle, place it on the top of your head with tip facing forward. It looks silly, but don't worry this is only the first step.
Grab the ends of your scarf and cross it in the front.
Tie it on the back of your head.
...Tuck the remainders inside. Done! :)
Tips on what to wear to concert / music festivals:
- Be comfortable. This is the top priority of choosing outfit to anywhere, especially a concert.
- Be prepared. consider all the possibilities. Is it going to be indoor or outdoor? is it going to be raining or sunny? Is it going to be crowded? If you're planning to hang around the festival for hours, you'd better choose a pair of sneakers over those cute heels.
- Keep your fantasy in balance with reality. Wear what you want to wear, but don't let what you wear distracts you or the people around you from actually enjoying the show.
- Stand out, don't blend in. It's a festival after all, time to express yourself. Step outside the ordinary, and have fun!
