K-Palette Beauty Workshop :: Creation of Style ::

-ღ Advertorial ღ-

 #1 - Last Thursday, I attended a K-Palette event held at Sasa in Bangsar Shopping Complex with the bloggers. I learned a few simple and flawless makeup tips and techniques that flatter every face shape from the professional makeup artist. Teeheh!

(If you are clueless, here's a little something about K-Palette.)
"K-Palette has been consistently rated as one of the top three selling eyeliners in Japan with 1 billion pieces sold since its inception in the market there 3 years ago."

#2 - Introduce you the professional Japanese makeup artist, Ms. Imura. She is 42 years old yet she looked pretty and so much younger then. Un-fucking-believable right? :P

#3 - Pictures of myself at the venue during the event. Instagram.

#4 - As I mentioned above, she's a Japanese makeup artist so she needed a translator to translate for us that day. While in the process of applying makeup, she shared her best beauty techniques. Her way of showing was really interesting and it was indeed pleasant to listen to her especially with a broad smile tagged on her face throughout the workshop. :D

#5 - It can be quite tricky knowing what is the proper foundation/concealer to apply. Need not to worry as K-Palette introduces you the K-Palette Zero Kuma Concealer. It comes in three shades, natural beige, yellow beige and orange beige.

I got myself one in natural beige, and I find it does actually gives a great coverage and moisturizing all in one. It formulated with moisturizing beauty essence ingredients such as hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid, soluble collagen and rose water. With all the beauty essence mix together, it moisturize your skin while covering the dark circles and imperfections.

As for Zero Kuma Concealer in yellow beige, it works best for users who have uneven skin tone. It tends to brighter up your under eye area and avoid cakey look around the eyes. For those who always stay in the office tend to have a poor circulation, Zero Kuma concealer in orange beige works best to conceal and hide swollen capillaries underneath the eyes.

 #6 - All yah need to do is squeeze a small amount and blend with fingertips using a light, patting motion under your eyes area. The process is actually pretty easy~! (:

#7 - Zero Kuma Concealer applied on her left eyes and right not. Can you see the difference? It really does instantly cover dark circles with a great coverage and only using a small amount. After concealer applied, take the powder foundation or loose powder with a large blush brush and gently brush the powder across the flesh.

#8 - One simply way to really stay natural and fresh is to give attention to your eyebrows. By now, you already know that your eyes are the most identifying feature that makes you look like you. And, your eyebrows frame your eyes. That clearly makes your eyebrows are so important. Am I correct? :D

#9 - K-Palette 24H Real Lasting Eyebrow Liner, which gives you a natural tattoo-like eyebrow lasting a whole day. Not to forget that it is a best seller in just a year! It is water-resistant that gives you a natural finish. I got this product from K-Palette and I tried it on myself the next day. It gave me a natural tattoo-like eyebrow as what it claimed to be. Easy to use~!

The lasting 2way eyebrow liner comes in two shades, which is chocolate brown and honey brown. Chocolate brown is best recommended for those who have dark colored hair. As for honey brown is best recommended for those who have lighter colored hair. 

#10 - The lasting 2way eyebrow liner well-designed with a special micro-fiber bush tip that gives you the ability to dot and apply your eyebrows in a most comfortable. Also, it comes with a multi-feature micro-brush with waterproof translucent ink that deep enough to conceal the areas of your eyebrows in order to achieve a natural eyebrows finish with a lasting power.

About this product, I find it quite convenient and saves my time to tone my eyebrows. So now, do I make your heart skips a beat? If yes, you can find this products in any SASA outlets for RM59.90. Okay, it might seem pricey, but you get two products in one. That's actually reasonable and make its worth to purchase. 

#11 - Can you see how it works from the picture above? First, use the powder side to tone and deepen the first half of your eyebrows then the liquid pen to draw a beautiful line along to the edge of eyebrows. Quick and easy peasy yea! :D

 #12 - Before -

 #13 - After -

Can you see the difference? What do you think? Does the lasting 2way eyebrow gives you the words of what it claims to be, natural tattoo-like eyebrows? :D

#14 - K-Palette Real Lasting Eyebrow Pencil 24h (RM49.90), it does the effect to lighten up the color of your eyebrows to well match your hair color especially for those who have ombre hair color or highlighted hair at the bottom. It available in three shades, grayish brown, camel brown and natural brown. It's easy to draw, waterproof and long-lasting 24h.

#15 - Now for the eyeshadow part, Ms. Imura showed us the lasting 2way eyebrow liner's powder pen can actually worked as a brown eyeshadow on our eyelids too. Oh, did I mention that its glittering powder coats tightly on our flesh, which create a natural look? *wink*

#16 - Eyeliner can make your eyes pop!! I'm not joking, it's definitely one essential cosmetic used to define our eyes. K-Palette introduces you the deep, jet black color that creates a powerful and an irresistible pair of eyes without much time or effort, Real Lasting Eyeliner 24h (RM59.90).

Its magic lies within its patented ultra-fine and special brush tip application which ensures that the liquid eyeliner does not drip messily or draw heavily on your eyelids while respecting your delicate eyes area.

#17 - I tried few attempts to rub the eyeliner ink on my hand, but its high-water resistant and its long lasting polymer forms a smudge-resistant effects. (Y)

#18 - Can you see how easy-to-draw ultra thin line along the edge of her eyes? All you have to do is draw a line across the upper lid on your lash line. This can helps to creates a softer look and a desired illusion of having thicker lashes. A classic line always works great. (:

#19 - Mascara helps to thicken, lengthen and darken your eyelashes. This great Long Curl Mascara new launched from K-Palette gives you an instant lash coating as well as provides you an intense volume. *batting eyelashes*

#20 - The curvaceous over-sized brush designed to gives a full lash contact for thicker and fuller looking eyelashes. The only bad news for us is that the mascara will only launch this October in Malaysia, so we have to wait for it another 2 months more.

#21 - The final look on the model.

#22 - Natural, casual makeup for daily. Dolly look too! :D

#23 - Sheena Liam and I .. 

#24 - Picture and smile are the first thing first when we found a big mirror enough to fit us all with great lightning at the backdrop. Me, Samantha, Lisa and Kar Mun~!

#25 - Here's a picture of all the beautiful bloggers during the event. *winking*

#26 - I was thrilled that we were each given a freebie bag from K-Palette included one of their best selling 1 day tattoo real lasting eyeliner, 2way eyebrow and zero kuma concealer. Though I was about to purchase their 2way eyebrow. *yay* :D

Everyday's a summer day, and as everyone knows :: Redang ::

29th of June, 2O12 ~ Friday ~

#1 - Aloha to all~ Looking back on this trip, I can truly say what a truly awesome trip it was with a circle of crazy friends. An enjoyable trip in my mind is one that where I can fly away (referring my mind & soul-like feelings) in the clear blue sky to clear my head and explore what's out there with the person or people I like and enjoy. Yes, just that simple. ♥‿♥

#2 - Me and Yin Xin, she's such a lovely girl. I am glad I came out and joined at the last minute. *wink*

#3 - Yah all know what? It was a 6 hours journey to Terengganu from Kuala Lumpur. You can imagine how exhausted it was, yet excited we all were especially the passenger at the back (me lol).
Thanks to J and GJ for the ride back and forth! (:

#4 - The first day in such a beautiful and remote island.

When life placed you in a tough situation, do not say why me! I am happy, indeed delighted to be in the position choosing which images to post as ton of pictures were taken 3 days in Redang Island surrounded with great people. *big grin* :D

#5 - We stayed in the Redang Bay resort for 3 days 2 night. The rooms in the Resort is so simple as in no television, no hair dryer or other desirable or useful features and the bathroom is small and quite filthy, but at least it has provided a nice warm shower. The inclusive deal such as two snorkeling trip a day and three meals a day were basic buffet.

#6 - Looking back at the pictures, I already started to miss Redang Island. Badly.

 #7 - OOTD -
It felt so good chillin' on the seashore and watching the others having a great time.

#8 - As I mentioned earlier, the others had a fun time doing their own arrangement of 'lego' in the sea. *big grin*

#9 - And, this! :D

#10 - At night, we were out from our rooms and enjoyed a great night of live music accompanied by delicious cocktails. After all, cocktail is perfect for any summer party.


 #12 - The popular drink, Margarita with a twist of lime, served with salt on the glass rim. Fav!

#13 - The gentlemen with their proper clothes on. *raised eyebrows*

#15 - We had our second round at a different location and the good thing was that all the bars/pubs were all linked in a row. (Y)

#16 - The second day started off greatly with the hot sun lighted up the white-sand beach. I love the warmth feeling of the morning sun on my face with my hair blowing in the breeze. Ow, I already started missing the rolling of the waves splashing on the beach.
#17 - It was really comfy napping on it under the trees while enjoying the rolling of the waves splashing on the beach and the sea breeze~~!

#18 - Spotted a squirrel cried out for food. Ain't it cute?

Now the most exciting part about the trip was the snorkeling. However, the worst thing was that I did not bring along my camera. *bang my head against the wall* How can I not right?

Sigh. So, I went for the last snorkeling trip in the afternoon session with few guys. A boat took us to a selected spot and we had about an hour to snorkel. It was superb, swam with the fishes and corals everywhere. Oh, on that note, my baby toe was hurt so incredibly badly by coral rock during the snorkel trip. I shouldn't have climbed it along with the guys. If only if I realized.. Anyway, the snorkel trip was terrific! :D

#19 - Us again. Yes, yeah, one narcissist. :p

#20 - Volleyball session in the late afternoon.

#21 - Sorry guys, but I must say that it is my favorite shot of all. *big grin* They should be grateful to have me as their cameraman. Right? :D


#23 - An adorable squirrel or a rather creepy one? :p

#24 - Snorkeling session in the late afternoon.

#25 - During the daylight.

#26 - During the night time. Tee-heh, a group shot! :D

#27 - On the third and the last day, a group shot before everyone separated their journey back home. It was truly a great getaway from the hectic life in KL with a bunch of amazing people. Seriously, 3 days ain't enough in Redang Island. :P
