Here’s a breakdown of Elva Hsiao (蕭亞軒)‘s signature look, ala dark smoky eyes, from her latest album. I read from somewhere that she used gold eyeshadow along with a pair of discontinued falsies made exclusively in Japan.
After DHC’s Olive Virgin Oil comes the oh-so-famous Bio-oil (~$16 for 60ml)! Being voted one of the best skincare products in various countries, the product is now available officially in the US. Since I figured some of you would be interested in trying it, I went and bought a bottle at Boots today. I will be using this twice every day as instructed and I will update regularly so I can share my experience with you guys.
I am so digging Ciara’s new look in the latest Like A Boy video I actually dug up my bandana and did a “hood” face *lol*
I have gotten quite a number of people asking about the Lily Cole ad for Accessorize I posted so here is me trying to dupe the look (minus the crazy big hair of course *lol*)
Unlike the gold eyeshadow we see last year, the color this year is more metallic with a bit of cool undertones. Below are two different ways to wear it as requested by Shellie.
Look #1: Gold + Silver = Cool Look
As spotted on the Chanel Spring 2007 runway, gold + silver eyes are oh-so-hot right now! To recreate the look, apply the silver color of Chanel Lumiere Dartifices ($75) on your entire upper eyelid and the gold color from the same palette on your lower eye. Alternatively, you try MAC Perverted Pearl eyeshadow and Jane Goldilocks.
As for the rest of your face, keep it as bare as possible. Use a tinted moisturizer and concealer to cover up all flaws and even out skin tone. Brush an eyebrow gel on your eyebrows. Draw a thin line along your upper lash line and apply several coats of black mascara. Finish the look with a slick of peachy pink lip color.
My latest obssession is the oh-so-cute French line Bourjois which is famous for its cute little pot packaging. The line has been around since 1863 (that’s over 100 years, now how impressive is that?!!) and is manufactured by the same company that makes Chanel’s cosmetics.
Below are some of my favorites from the line. If you guys need help getting anything, definitely let me know! Bourjois is a little cheaper here in London and they always do promotions on new and existing products.
||Little Round Pot Blush ($13.50)
This is the product that got Bourjois its fame. I have Rose d’or 34, which is a shimmery rose petal pink color that is too too gorgeous to resist. It goes on super pigmented with a sweet rosy smell and when I apply this on my apples, it makes me look like a doll. I’m definitely going to start collecting these.
