Sultry Bronze & Copper Make-up Look by Debbie

Hey guys this is my make-up tutorial for a sultry bronze & copper look. Since I did a voice-over in my first video, I decided not to do a voice-over for this video instead and see how it goes. As a result, there are quite a few mistakes in the video LOL sorry....

This look is actually Gyaru inspired. From my understanding, there are many styles of Gyaru. The style I'm inspired to do here is called "Kara" which means spicy or hot in Japanese.  You'll often see this style in Japanese Fashion magazines like Happie Nuts.

With this style/look, there is an emphasis on the eyes...lots of use of copper and bronze shades and lots of false eyelashes. The lips are also much bolder in color. Since this is a Gyaru inspired look, I've chosen to use 3 pairs of eyelashes for my top lashes. You don't have to use that many false lashes if you don't want to. You can just use one pair of thicker and more dramatic false lashes will do. You can also skip the bottom lashes if you want (it's optional). I just chose to do it because I wanted to balance the top lashes out since they're so dramatic.

I've actually never worn this look before. Creating this look for this video is actually the first time I've worn this look ^_^

Also, I forgot to mention in the video that for this look you want a more tanned & bronzed look so use a foundation that is one shade darker or slightly darker than what you would normally wear and use more bronzer to create that tanned bronzed look. I usually use use NC35 but for this, I've used NC40.

• Concealer: MAC Studio Finish - NC 30

Simple Eye-liner for Monolids

I've decided to do my first youtube make-up tutorial on how I apply my eye-liner because this is basically the make-up I wear everyday =P

As you guys will see in the video, I have monolids and when I first started out playing around with make-up, I had so much difficulties trying to apply make-up that would compliment my eye shape. So I really hope that this video will be somewhat helpful especially to all the monolid girls out there ^_~ 

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE eye-liners, it's so amazing how it can totally transform the shape of your eyes. I LOVE IT!!! <3

Here is the tutorial video :)

Product & Brush Used:
  • Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink
  • MAC 209 Eyeliner Brush
Handy Items:
  • Cotton Bud (To fix up any mess or the line if it's not smooth and straight)
  • A piece of toilet paper or tissue (To wipe off the product on the brush when it starts to harden a little. Trust me you do not want to be grabbing for more product onto your brush when it's all stiff because you won't be able to apply a nice smooth and straight line plus it's kinda painful on the eye lids o_O

Simple Edgy & Dramatic Black Make-up Look (My First Make-up Tutorial)

Hey Guys

This is my very first make-up tutorial! I hope that you guys like it. Hopefully I'll get better with each video that I do :)

I'll be showing you how to create this simple edgy & dramatic black make-up look

The Story Behind this Look:
I created this look for one of my photoshoots that I did awhile back. When I was living in Japan, I had the opportunity to work with Jyllian. She's an amazing photographer. I absolutely adore her work and she's such an inspiration to me. I hope that one day our paths will cross again and that I'll have the opportunity to work with her again. 

Check out Jyllian's work

The concept of the shoot was "Good Ballerina Gone Bad". It was an all day shoot and involved two different sessions. One during the day and one shot at night. The good ballerina is dreamy, organic and whimsical while the bad ballerina is edgy, dark and mysterious.

I did my own hair and make-up for the shoot and this look is the look that I created for the bad ballerina. We wanted something dark, edgy and mysterious...

Here are a few shots from the Good Ballerina session:

My Secret Love Affair Update: New Products and Promotions

Hey guys :)

Here's a quick update of our store. We've got lots of new products that we'll be bringing in and we're really excited and looking forward to sharing them with you. We will be updating our store with new products on a weekly basis so please make sure you stay tuned :)

The Naomi Dress is finally here and is also available in Black (pictures will be uploaded soon on the site)!! Thank you for all those who have enquired regarding the dress. The wait is over! :) We love this dress because it is versatile and can be converted into a top.

Here is a video we made showcasing the Naomi Dress so you'll be able to get a clearer picture of what it actually looks like.

We've also added another dress to our store - Katy Navy Polka-Dot Dress 

Navy in colour with red polka-dots make this dress a head turner. It is sweet and girly yet the backless adds a hint of sexiness. The red bows in the front are detachable giving you the freedom to be creative with them.

The Katy Navy Polka-Dot Dress is featured in our Outfit of the Night 18 Jan 2011 video.

Another new product this week is the Zipper Tee

An over-sized casual tee that's perfect for throwing on over tights or jeans for a casual laid-back day out. We love this top for those days where you just don't know what to wear. It's simple yet the mono-print and zipper detail adds a bit of edge to an otherwise simple tee.

We have Great News!!!

We are now offering FREE SHIPPING for all local Australian orders over AUD$50

Hope you guys all had a great weekend!
