Oh since Fifi did ask, my actual name is Lane. I usually prefer to go by blovetbeauty for convenience sake. I’ve also made the assumption that only close friends of mine read this blog hence there’s been very little need for me to share my personal background.. So, for those of you who don’t know me and are interested, here goes:

5 Basic Facts about ME

1) I have a makeup artistry diploma from Cosmoprof. Nobody could really understand my obsession for makeup… Hehehe I don’t blame them.

2) I am 24, going 25 this year. My field of study was in business administration. A very general degree that I truly regret , because it didn’t turn me into anything amazing. I have a study loan that I am paying back and I hate it cause I was hardly in school. I love marketing and promotions and those were the only subjects I excelled in. ( wow, I so exceeded one fact here )

3) I work in a family rennovation business and have since discovered an insatiable love for aesthetics.

4) I am married to an IT nerd. A very good one at that. I married at 22 and shocked everyone. Even my mommy. Hahaha

5) I’ve been told I have a very stuck up look. Get to know me before you judge me. First impressions are bull shit & there’s time to hate me later on :P

Taking a short trip up to KL in a coach was a really fun (good company) , yet painful experience (6-7 hour ride gave me a backache).

We stayed in Swiss Garden Hotel ( pretty clean & new):IMG_5599

We scoured the malls – Sungei Wang, New Times Square and Lot 10 in KL and I just had to visit their Guardian & Watson for a peek. Guess what, these lucky buggers have KATE selling in most of their pharmacies. That’s completely easy access to such wonderful makeup. 0de1_1

After walking around in Malls, we took a trip to Chinatown. It was a nice change from the concrete jungle. Here’s what I picked up on a small budget:

Seductive Eyes with

MAD Mineral

Pigments

"mineral makeup" – products made of all natural, finely ground minerals from the earth, without any of the chemicals, dyes, and preservatives found in traditional makeup

Mineral pigments are not only free from all the fragrances and preservatives found in most beauty products but are extremely versatile and can create intense and vibrant eye looks.

Mineral Makeup Tips: 

 

* Since they come in a powder form and can be get messy when in a rush, I like to “make them stick” them with Coastal Scents EZ Prez

* Always use an Eyeshadow or Makeup Base prior to using minerals, as they are very finely milled and adhere better to a sticky surface

* Give MAD Minerals , Coastal Scents or Everyday Minerals a try. They are very efficient when it comes to shipping and have a large assortment of colors.

* For sensitive skin types, do not fret. Mineral Cosmetics can be used with minimal irritation for the eyes, cheeks, skin, nails and they are so so easy to use.

 

Steps by Step Seductive Eye with

Mineral Pigments:

First step before putting on any color is to prime the lids. Here, I used Sephora’s Colorful Duo Creamy eyeshadow. The beige-y color lends a hint of shine to the eye area. Also, it adds as a holding base to enhance the vibrancy of the mineral pigments.

1st

 

Secondly, armed with my trusty coastal scents blending brush, softly blend in a sooty green pigment on the double  eyelid area, keeping close to the eyelids and not exceeding the crease.

 2

 

With the same brush, blend a light blue color to the bottom lid

 3

 

Using MAC Pigment ( i forgot the name of this cause it was a sample ), apply and blend very close to bottom lash line. It shouldn’t cover the blue pigments completely.

4

 

Using my fingertip, I blend a gold-ish pigment on my brow bone. Gold  complements my skin tone better than a shiny blue-ish white .

  5

Blend the darker pigment well into the crease in a back and forth motion or tiny circular motion

6

 

Blend a lighter color near the tear duct area, to open up the eyes

7

Subsequent Steps:

-Line water line with a dark pencil

-Curl & Mascara

-Fill Brows

Lips are kept sheer & moist

    Hi Lane!

    I liked reading your basic facts! It’s always so interesting to learn more about the people behind the blog ^^

    Dang, you came to KL! Can I ask you out the next time I go to Singapore? =D Aren’t the Kate counters located in Watsons, Guardian or Sasa in Singapore?

    Thank you for liking my FOTD & hair! I felt that my cheeks were very fat – I was going to pixelate my face out until I remembered that the main purpose of my blog entry was FOTDs and not random pictures of my hair hahaha

      Hey Blair, Yup I visited KL! It was very relaxing and fun because we visited New Times Square in KL which was gigantanormous!! The New Times Square mall is like 10 over floors high !!! My dear friend thought I was out of my mind for being super scared and not daring to look down at all.

      My phobia of heights is so bad that I would squirm and feel light headed each and everytime I could see ground floor… *queasy*

      Kate isn’t avaliable in guardian and watsons and its only avaliable in selected departmental stores.

      Call me out next time u pop by Singapore and I’ll make some time to go cosmetic shopping over here….Oh yah, I’ve never done a swap before, so I was wondering if u would be?? ;))

      I’m sure ur readers wouldn’t want to see pictures of ur hair only , hehe !

    Lane is such a pretty name<3 haha, I totally agree with fact #5. A lot of people think either think I'm stuck up or they think I'm super mean. I don't get how I look like that, lmao.

    I love how your eyes came out dear. My soft and sultry looking. I adore that outfit you wore in front of that mirror!

      Aww, thanks Dee. Its cool with me that people think I’m stuck up. These ppl step on my toes less and don’t dare to mess with me.
      I can be very protective and straight foward and I can offend ppl.
      That’s just who I am and frankly, I’m not going to be MISS NiCE NICE just cause you’re intimated by me.

      Its good to be stuck up sometimes!

      PEace to the Stuck up FACE!
