Hyper Japan 2012 !

I attended the Hyper Japan event in London on 
Sunday. It was so packed with loads of different
aspects of J-Culture. I think the venue is now too
 small for the huge following it has
gathered over the years. Hopefully it can be in 
a bigger place next time !
Im thinking the Olympia venue...
In the video I show most of the things 
I got to see :)
Enjoy !

MAC NC42, NARS Syracuse= Missha #31 BB Cream?

Hmm well not quite as you can see ! Unfortunately this shade is still too light
& it is the darkest BB cream there is from a Korean brand so far.
It almost matches but it is a bit too light and pinky toned. It makes me look
washed out/ashy ! Lol : ) Ah well ! A little pump of your normal
or maybe even a darker foundation will do the trick if you still want to try
this BB Cream ! It does perfect the skin especially for when filming - it makes you
look flawless ! It also minimizes pores & is very opaque. A little goes a long way !
I wish it was a bit darker and more yellow/warm toned. I think I am on the darker side
of the NC42 spectrum so it could work for some !

Oh hello awkward arm pose. See ya next time dahhlings !

Asos Beauty Insider Event !

I got invited to my first event ! Yayyy ! I've been going to a few these days
such as Paul & Joe, Smooch Cosmetics, Ciate and the one I blogged
about previously. But, those were all through my job.

It was at the HQ & was SO amazing. Im glad I had the opportunity recently to
go to other events because I had something to compare the Asos beauty insider
event to. OMG - it was frikkin amazing ! We got to go behind the scenes
to take a peek at the new beauty collections by many cool brands such as Benefit,
Nars, Illamasqua, Nails inc, Ciate etc ! I actually went to the Asos event
straight after the Ciate event in Oxford circus. It was a very busy night !

Stylesuzi, Britpopprincess etc ! (Blogger Event)

Omg you guys ! Yesterday I attended a blogger event called "Beauty and the Brain"
There was a panel discussion & britpopprincess, fashionrocksmysocks, stylesuzi
and wandesworld were up on stage answering questions. It was such a cool
experience & so amazing to see them in real life ! Not only that but we got to film all the
girls and interview them privately ! They were all so pretty & nice in real life.
They all spoke so well considering there were loads of people in the audience ! I would have
been soo scared ! There was a Q&A session with the audience as well and my coworker asked "What was the weirdest comment that you have received?" Their answers were quite funny !

There will be a video coming soon - ill post it later on :)

Who is your favourite UK youtuber  ?

My new fav youtube channel

I am loving the youtube channel Vice ! If you havent checked it out definitely
do so ! They go EVERYWHERE making documentaries about random,
obscure or dangerous topics. I love how they go off the beaten path and deliver
raw interviews with people that have even committed crimes. Its so interesting how
they go so deep into the culture and dont just report on topics we already know about.
They seem to have no fear. Ive learned tons ! They also open your eyes to some insane
social injustices and extremely disturbing things going on in the world. For example
about how there are actually slaves in Dubai building the amazing hotels and massive
buildings. Wtf ?!

Here is one freaky/interesting one I watched recently. Drugs are truly ruining the world.

These vids are a treat when you are bored and just wanna watch something interesting...

My Daily Makeup

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation - Tahoe 
 Great Coverage, Lovely Finish.Perfect Foundation for everyday use ! 

MAC Studio Finish Concealer NC42 
Full Coverage concealer amazing for covering dark scars on the face and sculpting the
 eyebrows. Has a drier finish than other concealers so dont use too much.
Might not be the best for under the eyes. 

MSF Powder in Medium/Dark 
This is the powder that I use to set my makeup. Honestly I dont get the hype. 
Next time ill opt for a drugstore powder. Its definitely decent
but nothing insanely good. I really did enjoy my true match powder just as much.
Im going to use it up - dont wanna waste it as it was quite expensive ! 

Loreal Super Liner - Perfect Slim 
Decent liner with a good brush. Intensely black. Does rub off a bit after a while. 
Will opt for  a trusty Japanese one soon. I like Japanese ones the best but for now
I do use this one everyday. I also love Blacktrack Fluidline.

Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil - Dark Brown
Really good pencil for a cheap drugstore price ! Its not too sheer or too pigmented !
 I dont have sparse brows so I use a light hand with this but if you are someone with 
sparse brows - you could  definitely get a dark enough colour.  Love it :)

Max Factor 2000 Calorie Mascara
I bounce between this one and the Max Factor False Lash Effect. Max Factor
do some good mascaras ! I really love both for voluminous, lengthened & seperated
lashes that dont look all clumpy and crazy. 

Miss Tangerine Follow Me Tint
Here is my trusty Etude House tint. I love my tints for day to day wear. 
I always put a tint under my lipsticks ! 

Here are the 3 brushes I use for my base makeup every day. I use the definer brush by Real Techniques to shape my brows - something I never used to do as
 I didnt know wtf I was doing. But, now Im getting the hang of it :D I was cursed with 
weird massive brows. I use the fluffy ELF Complexion brush for powder and blush
and the Real Techniques buffing Brush for my liquid foundations ! 

Sleek Au Naturel Palette 

Staple palette for loads of people ! It has light highlighting shades,  cool shimmery
 shades...a lovely matte brown which could also be used for brows
and an intense matte black which is useful in any palette. Its definitely
a HG product for me ! Ive dropped it loads of times and the shadows never cracked ! 
I use it almost everyday... seriously. I love it ! I love Sleek as a whole really.

Drugstore Foundations I bought recently

Dream Nude Airfoam - Sun Beige

 Very Light coverage...Dont like the finish on my face.
After smooshing the foam down theproduct is very liquidy and thin.
Sun Beige is a bit too light for me but the next one down was too dark. 
Nothing much to say about it really. The foam is fun but Im not going to be using
this anytime soon. Could be nice if you are looking for something with
very light coverage. 

Bourjouis Healthy Mix Serum - 58

Nice dewy/natural finish ... not enough coverage for my face though.
 Lovely smell. Would be perfect for people with rather good skin. 
This is #58 and its slightly too dark on my face. Doesnt last for more than a few hours
 on my slightly oily skin.  The #58 in the regular  foundation gets a 8/10 and its a great color
 match. The serum is darker than the foundation. I finished a bottle of the regular foundation
and will be repurchasing soon. Wont repurchase the serum or use it often.

Sleek New Skin Revive - Praline

I really like this foundation. Very natural finish - not dewy or matte. 
You do get  medium coverage up to an extent but your own skin does 
show thru a bit. Its very smooth because of the silicone base. However, silicone 
can break people out being that the skin cant breathe. I did
get 2 pimples a few days later after using it for the first time. Not 100% if
it was from the foundation or not.

Sexual Cheesy Potatoes

This is my favourite unhealthy snack ! Found at Borough Market in London ! 
Raclette cheese smothered on top of cute baby potatoes seasoned with salt
& pepper...with a side of pickles :D  Salivating just thinking about it ...
Heres what else I got up to after my potato adventure :

Why I cannot stand 50 Shades of Grey

...very attractive, i know. 

1. The characters talk like they are 20 something going on 90.
2. They are meant to be American but sound British.
3. The way the book is written is generally dry & crappy.
4. Mr. Grey is a controlling, psycho bastard and it pisses me off.
5. The fact that Ana can orgasm in 3.5 seconds from weird SHXT irritates me
6. I cant even progress past chapter 13 & I hate not finishing books
7. The sexual scenes are 
8. The hype surrounding the book makes me angry

I just hope the movie is good...the basic story is interesting...But I literally cannot sit 
and finish this book. Its too damn boring. Ive seen a lot of people say
they dislike the book but at the same time its addictive. I dont find it addictive at all.
Its just aggravating to me ! I wonder who they will cast for the movie.
Since Ana says 100,000 times in a few pages  that Mr. Grey is amazingly
 attractive...let me think for a moment who could be cast.

Im thinking a mixture of Jude Law, Robert Pattinson & Johnny Depp's intensity 
& acting skill...Does this person exist ?

I have no idea...who do you think should be Mr. Grey in the movie ?

Maybe a newbie...someone not already famous 

How to get started in Nail Art

To get started doing cute nail art there are some necessities in order to make
a variety of designs and looks.

The 10 top things you will need are: 

1. Base Coat
2. Polishes
3. Rhinestones
4. Glitter
5. Striper Brush
6. Short Tip Brush
7. Nail Art Pen
8. Nail Dotting Tool
9. Basecoat
10. Nail Polish Remover w/ q-tip (for mistakes)

However, not all of them are necessary...only if you want to have a full collection and
not use household items like matches in place of a dotting tool. Totally up to you !

You can get ALL of these things on ebay if not at your local beauty supply or even

My favorite nail polish brands that never dissapoint me are: OPI, Models Own, Barry M,
Etude House & Essie to name a few.

Models own do good nail art pens. My least favorite are the marker-tip ones from
Sally Hansen.

Here is a video with some extra tips on how to do dots, glitter, french, stripes & leopard.

If you would like me to cover any other basics let me know !

Lipstick Collection Part 1 !

I absolutely love lipsticks ! I spend more money on beauty products than
clothes or shoes hands down! In this video I show you some swatches on my lips
instead of on the back of my hand so you can see the colors better.
When choosing most of my NYX lipsticks I first watched videos which gave me
ideas of which ones I would like to purchase. Hope it helps in some way :)

Top 3 British Lip Products (Drugstore)

These are in no particular order :

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsticks by Kate
I LOVE these ! I love the smell... Love the colors, texture, finish ... everything !
They arent as long lasting as a mattelipstick but I totally love them.
My fav is 08 Asia : ) 

Collection 2000 Cream Puff Lip Cream

My favorite and the most popular I think is Fairy Cake. Its a gorgeous coral color
that brightens your whole face. These go on like a thick lipgloss & dry
matte like a lipstick. They come in a few different shades. Make
sure you moisturise your lips first and you will be fine !
 Sleek True Color Lipsticks

I think these are a fav of everyone ! I mainly purchase the matte ones as
they look the best in my opinion. My favorite of all the ones they have out
is "Bare All" Its a lovely matte peach. Very complimentary !
