From left : An empty container, a plastic spatula (or anything you have that you can mix things with) , a glass bowl (optional. you can even use a plastic card),
your choice of sunblock (I'm using sunblock by Methode Swiss SPF 30) your choice of foundation (I'm using Aery Jo Fitting sun foundation SPF28)
左边开始: 一个小空瓶, 一个小舀子,一个玻璃碗(不一定需要.你也可以用一个塑胶卡), 你自己的防晒膏(我用的是menthode swiss, 防晒指数30), 你自己的粉底液 (我用的是AERY JO FITTING SUN FOUNDATION,防晒指数28)
I'm not really a fan the foundation, (well if you have read my blog a few times you might notice that I've mentioned before that I rarely use full on foundation on my skin)
because I get this effect when I apply it on my skin. (picture above) I'm not sure why but it's like the goddess of foundation HATES me. I've tried tons of ways to apply foundation from using fingers to brushes, moisturizers/sprays/makeup bases/ essence/ below foundation or even above foundation. It still looks like that. no matter what brand = ="
It looks wrinkly and chalky on my skin and it enlarges the whiteheads (eww yes i have whiteheads on my fist )
Plus, it's a bit more darker than my normal skin tone *that's the lightest shade already -_-*, so it makes the skin on my face look dull.
Why I haven't got rid of it yet? Because it costs me a whopping RM180 (If I don't remember wrongly)
And I've only used it like.. 5 times MAX.
So, for the foundation on this tutorial, you don't need to rush out and BUY another foundation.
instead, you can use a foundation that you've bought before but maybe it's a shade darker than your skin tone,
or maybe the consistency of your foundation is a bit too thick to your liking.
At least give this a try before letting it sit and expire in your makeup box aye =)
K so First up, pump out a pump of foundation and a squeeze of sunblock into your glass bowl. You can use a plastic card too or ANYTHING you can think of to mix these two together as long as it's sanitary for you!
Use your plastic spatula and mix the foundation and sunblock together! *mix mix mix...*
And this is the end result! :D The shade of the color is a tad bit lighter because of the white colored sunblock I've used to mix the foundation with. the consistency still remains thick! :D But I think I've used a bit too much of both of the products, as I only need 50% of what you see in the picture for my whole face.
The amount on my finger is the amount of what I've used to apply on my left cheek. 我在手指上沾的分量是我用来涂在我左边脸的.
How it looks like on the back of my hand. It looks just like my skin instead of something over it!
If you'd like to use the ratio of products that I've used, it's 50% foundation and 50% sun screen. to my skin it looks like a tint of color+ minimal coverage
If you'd like more coverage, use 70% foundation and 30% sunscreen.
**If you would like just a tint of color on your face with a moisturizing purpose, don't do this, scroll down instead! :D **
Of course the coverage won't be as good as a foundation because we've mixed it together with a sunblock.
Btw, this is a fact, when you mix ANYTHING with sunblock/sunscreen, you're likely changing the protective factor of the sunscreen, so it might be lowering the SPF. But I don't really care that much because my sunblock is a SPF 30, and the foundation has a SPF 28, plus I'm not gonna play in the sun for hours, just for a protection against UV rays and stuffs, but still got some coverage and color on my face whenever I'm out for shopping/ having tea with my friends
You can choose whether you would want to make a bit more of the tinted sunscreen and fill it in an empty container. But I don't recommend you to make like a month's supply of it. Instead, make only a supply of 5 days - a week. Because you want to keep your product "fresh" what!
Using a foundation of your choice, and a moisturizer of your choice. I'm using Akin's unscented 24 hour pure moisture. Which looks like this.
用你自己的粉底液,还有你自己的润肤液. 我用的是Akin's 牌子的unscented 24 hour pure moisture. 看起来就像酱!
The consistency is a bit more fluid-like.
I've placed both the foundation and the moisturizer into an empty container, the ratio is also 50% moisturizer, 50% foundation.
然后我把粉底液,还有润肤液倒进一个小空瓶里面, 份量也是50%粉底, 50%润肤液.
Mix em both together with your spatula. *mix mix mix mix mix* (Looks gross right? I KNOW. heh)
把2种产品混合在一起........... (看起来是有一点恶心啦. XD)
End result! The consistency is more creamier than the tinted sunblock, It kind of reminds me of RMK liquid foundation actually! XD Now I'm not saying that you'll get the same consistency that I've got when you mix it with your own products, but here's a tip; the more liquid your moisturizer is, the closer you get to this consistency. and it just feels super lightweight to the skin!
(How the tinted moisturizer looks like on my face)
(How it looks like on the back of my hand. moisture surge!! :D)
If you work in an air-conditioned environment, and is getting fed up with foundation because it feels drying to your skin, I recommend that you try this. :)
And again,you can choose whether you would want to make a bit more of the tinted moisturizer and fill it in an empty container. But I don't recommend you to make like a month's supply of it. Instead, make only a supply of 5 days - a week. Because you want to keep your product "fresh" what!
***Note there is a Mandarin and English version of this story; I'm not sure which came out first and I do not know who is the author, it's all over the internet.***
When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand and said, I've got something to tell you. She sat down and ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in her eyes.
Suddenly I didn't know how to open my mouth. But I had to let her know what I was thinking. I want a divorce. I raised the topic calmly.
She didn't seem to be annoyed by my words, instead she asked me softly, why?
I avoided her question. This made her angry. She threw away the chopsticks and shouted at me, you are not a man! That night, we didn't talk to each other. She was weeping. I knew she wanted to find out what had happened to our marriage. But I could hardly give her a satisfactory answer; she had lost my heart to Jane. I didn't love her anymore. I just pitied her!
With a deep sense of guilt, I drafted a divorce agreement which stated that she could own our house, our car, and 30% stake of my company.
She glanced at it and then tore it into pieces. The woman who had spent ten years of her life with me had become a stranger. I felt sorry for her wasted time, resources and energy but I could not take back what I had said for I loved Jane so dearly. Finally she cried loudly in front of me, which was what I had expected to see. To me her cry was actually a kind of release. The idea of divorce which had obsessed me for several weeks seemed to be firmer and clearer now.
The next day, I came back home very late and found her writing something at the table. I didn't have supper but went straight to sleep and fell asleep very fast because I was tired after an eventful day with Jane.
When I woke up, she was still there at the table writing. I just did not care so I turned over and was asleep again.
In the morning she presented her divorce conditions: she didn't want anything from me, but needed a month's notice before the divorce. She requested that in that one month we both struggle to live as normal a life as possible. Her reasons were simple: our son had his exams in a month's time and she didn't want to disrupt him with our broken marriage.
This was agreeable to me. But she had something more, she asked me to recall how I had carried her into out bridal room on our wedding day.
She requested that every day for the month's duration I carry her out of our bedroom to the front door ever morning. I thought she was going crazy. Just to make our last days together bearable I accepted her odd request.
I told Jane about my wife's divorce conditions. . She laughed loudly and thought it was absurd. No matter what tricks she applies, she has to face the divorce, she said scornfully.
My wife and I hadn't had any body contact since my divorce intention was explicitly expressed. So when I carried her out on the first day, we both appeared clumsy. Our son clapped behind us, daddy is holding mommy in his arms. His words brought me a sense of pain. From the bedroom to the sitting room, then to the door, I walked over ten meters with her in my arms. She closed her eyes and said softly; don't tell our son about the divorce. I nodded, feeling somewhat upset. I put her down outsidethe door. She went to wait for the bus to work. I drove alone to the office.
On the second day, both of us acted much more easily. She leaned on my chest. I could smell the fragrance of her blouse. I realized that I hadn't looked at this woman carefully for a long time. I realized she was not young any more. There were fine wrinkles on her face, her hair was graying! Our marriage had taken its toll on her. For a minute I wondered what I had done to her.
On the fourth day, when I lifted her up, I felt a sense of intimacy returning. This was the woman who had given ten years of her life to me.
On the fifth and sixth day, I realized that our sense of intimacy was growing again. I didn't tell Jane about this. It became easier to carry her as the month slipped by. Perhaps the everyday workout made me stronger.
She was choosing what to wear one morning. She tried on quite a few dresses but could not find a suitable one. Then she sighed, all my dresses have grown bigger. I suddenly realized that she had grown so thin, that was the reason why I could carry her more easily.
Suddenly it hit me... she had buried so much pain and bitterness in her heart. Subconsciously I reached out and touched her head.
Our son came in at the moment and said, Dad, it's time to carry mom out. To him, seeing his father carrying his mother out had become an essential part of his life. My wife gestured to our son to come closer and hugged him tightly. I turned my face away because I was afraid I might change my mind at this last minute. I then held her in my arms, walking from the bedroom, through the sitting room, to the hallway. Her hand surrounded my neck softly and naturally. I held her body tightly; it was just like our wedding day.
But her much lighter weight made me sad. On the last day, when I held her in my arms I could hardly move a step. Our son had gone to school. I held her tightly and said, I hadn't noticed that our life lacked intimacy.
I drove to office.... jumped out of the car swiftly without locking the door. I was afraid any delay would make me change my mind...I walked upstairs. Jane opened the door and I said to her, Sorry, Jane, I do not want the divorce anymore.
She looked at me, astonished, and then touched my forehead. Do you have a fever? She said. I moved her hand off my head. Sorry, Jane, I said, I won't divorce. My marriage life was boring probably because she and I didn't value the details of our lives, not because we didn't love each other anymore. Now I realize that since I carried her into my home on our wedding day I am supposed to hold her until death do us apart.
Jane seemed to suddenly wake up. She gave me a loud slap and then slammed the door and burst into tears. I walked downstairs and drove away.
At the floral shop on the way, I ordered a bouquet of flowers for my wife. The salesgirl asked me what to write on the card. I smiled and wrote, I'll carry you out every morning until death do us apart.
That evening I arrived home, flowers in my hands, a smile on my face, I run up stairs, only to find my wife in the bed - dead.
My wife had been fighting CANCER for months and I was so busy with Jane to even notice. She knew that she would die soon and she wanted to save me from the whatever negative reaction from our son, in case we push thru with the divorce.-- At least, in the eyes of our son--- I'm a loving husband....
The small details of your lives are what really matter in a relationship. It is not the mansion, the car, property, the money in the bank. These create an environment conducive for happiness but cannot give happiness in themselves. So find time to be your spouse's friend and do those little things for each other that build intimacy. Do have a real happy marriage!
If you don't share this, nothing will happen to you.
If you do, you just might save a marriage.
Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.
Hey girls, I'm soooo sorry for not uploading any tutorials lately;
I've been darn busy with work; working 2 jobs lately so I'm like almost half dead.
To make it up to you, I'm gonna be a bit more hardworking on this tutorial and do not only the inspired eye makeup tutorial, but also a tutorial on the face.
Hope you like it :)
As always, I start off with a clean eye + enlargement contact lenses.
跟平常一样, 带好放大隐形眼镜+ 干净的眼皮.
Next, I've usedM.A.C cream colored base in Pearl.
Using my ring finger, I dabbed a bit of the color base; and swiped it all over my eyelid till the brow bone.
**now you don't have to use the same things as I've used, you can use any color base you want as long as it's close to your skin color, or even your eye primer to apply on your eyes. i'm using Pearl because it is the closest shade to my skin color, and it has an icy shimmer to it. Plus, because I've only applied a light amount of it to my skin to make my eyes look more"awakened", and using a primer/ eyeshadow base can let your eyeshadow lasts longer throughout the day. **
Then, take an eyeshadow color that is almost as the same shade as your skintone, or a shade lighter,
brush it all over the eyelid till the brow bone. Try to use something that has only a bit of shimmer in it.
You can also use a matte eyeshadow if you like.
(I'm using my chanel quad err.. forgot the name of this particular color.)
then, taking a black eyeliner pencil, try to DRAW YOUR EYELINER AS CLOSE AND THIN AS POSSIBLE TO THE LASH LINE. Try GENTLY pulling your eyelid sideways abit to get to the empty parts.
I'm using black eyeliner today because in A.B's MV she looks like she's wearing black eyeliner instead of brown.
Next, take your black liquid eyeliner and just go over where you've lined the black eyeliner pencil.
remember; AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE TO THE LASH LINE.
when you get to the outer corner of your eyes, don't "flick or wing" your eyeliner,
instead, follow the shape of your eye and draw your liquid liner out just a bit longer at the ends, approximately 0.5 CM long. (erm I hope you get what I mean by looking at the pics)
(K this is for me LEFT eye. this is suitable for girls with longer eyelashes/ girls who don't wish to use falsies.)
After I've curled my lashes, I've used both wands of M.A.C's haute and naughty lash mascara,
You'll need to wiggle your mascara wand in a "Z" shape while you apply it onto your eyelashes.
tip, if you want your eyelashes to stay sky high curly longer, wiggle your wand from the middle of the eyelash to the tip, then only start to wiggle it from the bottom.
apply mascara on your lower lashes as well.
**try using 2 or 3 kinds of different lengthening/ volumizing mascara's instead of sticking to one mascara.
it really gives out a different effect!
夹了自己的睫毛后, 我用了 M.A.C haute and naughty lash睫毛膏的2 只睫毛膏. 再来是怎么刷上睫毛膏.
小建议, 如果你要你的睫毛的翘度持久一些, 从你的眼睫毛的中间刷睫毛的顶端几次后,
Then,I've applied on double eyelid tape on my eyelids. As the inner corners of A.B's eyes are quite wide, it's impossible to achieve that look without using any double eyelid tape. How to apply double eyelid tape tutorial
But today, I'm using a L sized double eyelid tape, I've cut off the yellow edges using method "B".
*Might be sharing some of the L sized double eyelid tape on blog for sale*
This is how I did my final eye makeup for my RIGHT eye.
**Suitable for girls with shorter/lesser lashes or girls who wish to use falsies**
(P.S the eyelashes on my right eye is like, 30% shorter than my left eye.)
I'm using Intense tinted sunscreen plus clinique all about eyes concealer on my face today,
if you don't have any tinted sunscreen.. you can DIY your own tinted sunscreen or tinted moisturizer!!
As A.B's face visually looks like she has nothing on, it's like- poreless+ none cakey+ natural glow!
K maybe it's because her skin is already awesome to begin with.
But if you have a bit of a skin problem, you can try using a colored makeup base to even out your skin tone,
then take a concealer and conceal only the problem areas, and lightly dust a bit of loose powder over your face after that.
I like that place because it's surrounded with loads of greens, and they teach tai chi/ light aerobics for free too!
if you're wondering why i'm not going to a gym, it's because 1stly i can't find a good gym that caters to my needs. 2ndly i exercise maybe only once a week, sometimes ONCE EVERY 6 MONTHS. lol. so if i sign up for a gym package i'll be only wasting my hard earned moo-lah :(
but i do enjoy a good workout in the gym though- but the hunt goes on!
i hope i can stay to my rountine of working out once a week, then slowly add my pace to twice a week.
ahhhhh but hoping is no use. I MUST DO IT WHEY! GAMBATEH!!
OMG I'm so "LUCKY", rich folks from all around the world are dead

Online scams nowadays. PFFFFT. (-_-)
What's your most LOL-able online scam email you've received?
**I have removed the emails + ref number+ first name of sender of the the scam mails**
I just cannot "tahan" these scam mails whether virtually or they just pass flyers around.
Once I've heard my friend told me she saw this really old man trying to put some torn up cash and coins into a cash deposit machine. She figured that he didn't know how to use it so she walked up to him and told him that the cash deposit machine doesn't accept coins, but she offered to help him change his coins. She also offered to teach him how to use the cash deposit machine. So he pulled out a flyer from his pocket and told her that it was to be deposited into that account. When she read what was on the flyer, she knew it instantly that it was a scam.(it was something like, bank in RM100 to us and you will definitely win at least RM500!)She explained to the old man that it was a scam and you know what did the old man reply?With teary eyes, he told her that;"it's my last bit of savings..if I don't try; how would I win? I will win.. I must win."
