Little happiness and the look!

I feel blessed and loved by God and people, and I am so thankful for every little happiness that happens in my life.

Just like a simple email from Cosmopolitan Indonesia magazine that send me a gorgeous invitation of *one of my favorite brand* launching! It does put a smile on my face.

"Maybe some of u are one famous blogger that might be raising ur eyebrow by reading this and said

"really..happy over this lil invitation? I got it all the time"

Well, Good on ya!
but yes to me it's the first time receiving launching invitation in a fashion world,
eventho I couldn't attend it, I still feel happy because my little humble blog gives me the opportunity to be recognized by Cosmopolitan Indonesia magazine.

Am I being over reacted? maybe!
But when your turn is come, you will know how it feel
and for the famous blogger..u do remember how u felt back then.

 So I feel love is in the air..
Thank u God.


 Now, here it goes..

The purplish Valentines day look!
Requested by Angel-fanie and Inge ^^

At first, I'm not so sure about the color on my eyes! 
Purple? hemmm...*not a real fans of purple*

So I just tried to do the look and I end up loving it, so please welcome my purplish
Valentines look.

I'm sorry for the tired looking eyes, I've been having trouble in sleeping for the last one week.
And I guess it's pretty obvious on this picture.

To start the look, I put my Kryolan orange stick around my eyes to cover my super serious dark circle and it's not covering really well..damn! I need 13 hours of sleep I gez. T_T

After the concealer, I put my Revlon Photoready in 003 shell and set it with Revlon photoready powder in light/fair.

Next, I take a very solid matte purple eyeshadow and apply it at the corner of my eyes with a flat brush, start blend the color towards half of your eyes and on your lower lid close to your lash line as well.

Then I'll go for the same purple shades with 3-4 tone lighter to blend it towards my inner corner.
I choose a shimmery light gold color for my inner corner, because I want to make my eyes look brighter and less tired.

Do highlight your brow bone and blend it downward a bit towards the purple color.
Frame your upper lashline with a black eyeliner in crayon form so it's easier for you to blend it.
We want it make it slightly smokey to avoid the purple candy color for your date night.
This look, was my 2nd attempt to do the purplish look..and I create a sharper shape at the end of the eyes. I'll show the rounder shape that I did on my first attempt at the end of this posting.

Choose your favorite fake eyelash and u're done with the eyes!

Choose a fresh blush color to compliment the look, 
don't go for something that is too pinkish or too peachy.
Keep the lips simple and natural.
I use only lipbalm on this look.

Man, I'm seriously look like I just wake up and apply make up.

Oh, do contour and highlight if you have a flat feature like mine..trust me..it helps ^^

And these pictures below, are the 1st attempt that I did.
The exact same color with a little different in blending and the eyeshadow shape.

Enjoy your purplish valentines look, do share with me your pictures if you creates any valentines look!

Happy valentines ladies!
Share the love and feel it.



  1. My Valentine Look: Kuyu pulang kantor..... hihihihih.... Valentine-nya jatuhnya hari Selasa siihhhhhhh hehehe. Kalo wiken, mgkn diusahain dinner deh :). Abisnya suami kantor di serpong, istri kantor di Sudirman, pulang pergi rutenya beda.

    Anyway, I really like this look. Really2 fresh!

  12. itu bagian gak enaknya jadi indonesian blogger yang tinggalnya gak di indo ya ric... kalo dapet undangan gak bisa dateng. padahal kan pengen. hahaha.

    tau gak sih, end of the year of 2011, kita dapet undangan untuk ke disneyland hk! dibayarin tiket pesawat, hotel, makan for 3d2n. dengan catatan gua harus review di blog (dan pasang status di twitter dan fb). udah ngomong panjang, udah sampe nentuin tanggal... eh ternyata orangnya kirain gua tinggal di indo! huhuhu....
    akhirnya katanya mau didiskusiin lagi soalnya harga tiketnya jadi mahal kan kalo dari LA. dan gak ada kabarnya lagi. hiks.

    padahal tadinya udah excited banget mau janjian ketemuan ama keluarga gua pula. nasib deh... hehehe.
