MAKEUP: Maskcara’s Monday Makeover

Remember that horrid make up picture of Kim Kardasian with all shades of skin tones on her face?  Don’t remember? Here let me show you.

kim-k-make-up-2_1Yeah! That picture!

Ok.  This method is called contouring.  Honestly when I saw this, I felt there was NO WAY flawless make up could be achieved with THAT amount of make up.  It was frankly too time consuming and frankly all the primer in the world wouldn’t hold that quantity of make up in a place like Hong Kong or .  It is just not realistic.

Well, I have found some one on the tinterweb who is literally a genius!

This is Cara, from MaskCara and she is my favorite cosmetics blogger primarily because she doesn’t use a lot of make up and her technique is simple to understand and follow.

PLUS she has her own line of cosmetics that are simple and easy to take anywhere if you’re on holiday or have to attend a wedding… or its your OWN wedding!  Check her makeover Monday looks!  The ladies are just dazzling.

INTERIORS: coco + kelley

If anyone has been following my blog, you will know I don’t normally put up stuff on interiors but this is one I have to do.

Cassandra Lavalle of coco + kelley, has to be one of my favourites that I follow religiously when it pops up in my inbox and I always love what she does.  And what she does, makes me wish I owned a loft brick space in Hong Kong.  I really do. (Tragic!)

But for your lovelies out there who have the time to do beautify your space… enjoy this read.

Saturday Style

Although its April here in Hong Kong, it hasn’t quite become warm enough to be called HOT. Its just really humid.

This is a cute style from A Pretty Penny, to look forward too for the weekend!

Enjoy!

It’s the first Saturday of spring! The weather is a sunny 70 degrees and orange blossoms are in the air. It’s a perfectly lovely sixth day of the week, and I’m so happy to see it.

The Dress

I am absolutely loving this fashionista’s style – especially with her choice of vintage items! This green bag is fun…!

When I saw this dress on Topshop, I knew I had to have it. And when it arrived in the mail a month or so ago, I fell so much more in love with it! The construction is with this thick and heavyweight satin material that gives the dress it’s shape and form.

All in all, I think this will be a staple in my closet. I know it will be easy to dress up, so I opted to feature it here with a casual look. My trusty (and ancient) monk loafers are always a go-to when I want to look polished and slightly preppy. The green handbag was a vintage find.

What do you guys think of this look?

XO!

Floral Decor Inspiration

I absolutely love this decor idea and am possibly contemplating (seriously contemplating) using a wall to create this look. I love it!

Add a splash of your favorite aroma oil would seal the look with sight & smell of flowers…

How refreshing!

If you’re allergic to huge prints and bold patterns, add flowers in small doses; a rose on your pillow, a sunflower on your mug.
