I love Erika Jjang's tutorial of this eye makeup :) Check it out and don't forget to comment on her blog just so she knows you appreciate it too ;)


Annyong haseyo!!! It’s time for another make-up play! :D Consider this as my early Christmas gift to fellow BlackJacks! ;) And today it’ll be a tutorial on the look of the baddest female Seoul City ever had! Awesome rapper and 2ne1 leader CL! <3

She rocked the stage with 2 performances last MAMA 2011 held in Singapore! She also performed side by side with and Filipino pride (kekeke like I’m announcing a boxer)!

Photo taken from:

She looked stunningly gorgeous with her signature black and heavy eyemake!

Her skin looks glowing! Looks like Dara uhnee gave her some Nymph Aura Volumer! :D

Let’s get started!

Products used: 1. Tony Moly Simply Style Slim Mascara Curling; 2. Etude House Proof 10 Liquid Liner; 3. Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer No. 1; 4. Nature Republic By Flower BB Cream No. 2; 5. Etude House Miss Tangerine Palette No. 7; 6. Everbilena Black Eyeliner; 7. Maybelline Eye Studio Black Gel Liner.

Step 1. To achieve CL’s glowing look mix 3 parts Nature Republic By Flower BB Cream with 1 part Nymph Aura Volumer.

Step 2. Spread all over face and gently pat to finish~

Step 3. Using Maybelline’s gel liner, line the your upper eye line.

Step 4. Using Everbilena’s Black pencil eyeliner, line your double eye lid crease.

Step 5. Using Maybelline’s Gel Liner, fill in up to the double eye lid crease and flick the end of your upper eye line.

Step 6. Connect the double eye lid line to the flick! And apply black eye shadow to achieve a semi matte look! It will also help to avoid creasing~

Step 7. Using the gel liner, line your bottom eye line, remember to apply a thin line :)

Step 8. To define the look use Etude House’s Liquid Liner and trace the outer lines of the eye make

Step 9. To finish the eye look apply a thin coating of Tony Moly’s Simply Style Slim Mascara~

Definitely reblogging this event for everyone! One of the brands I’ve been using a lot these days is Luview. I even posted about the products of Luview on my blog. I first read about Luview from Shimmerjjang Andhie, someone I met through Tumblr. :) She’s one of the friendly people I met through blogging, aside from dear Karen. Check out her blog for posts about various makeup and skin care products, especially Korean brands like Luview! She happens to be the Power Angel here in the Philippines. Luview calls their fans as their angels (how cute and so sweet!) and to be a power angel means that they’re spreading more information to others about the brand.

In any case, check out her blog for details of Luview’s Mega Giveaway which is happening right now until December 25. Perfect for the holidays, isn’t it? For each country where Luview has Power Angels, there will be 5 different winners of their giveaway. ^_^

For details, click the link above or head to Shimmerjjang Andhie's blog. Good luck~!

Thanks to Erikajjang for the detailed reviews and this short summary! (Detailed entries are shown as links.) This post is epic. Seriously. Anyway, I have to get a new set of nose strips so the timing is perfect. But I don’t see the Watson’s one that I use here. Hmmm. I wonder which one to try based on this post.

Today, I just got an email from LUVIEW Cosmetics Korea and I am just so dead excited to share you guys what’s up for the next event~LUVIEW never gets tired of making its Angels…

Time to think of a great way to show LUVIEW that I am a fan! ♥ Prizes include their cosmetics and shirts which they just shared recently. Almost all the fans who responded to the FaceBook update on the LUVIEW page said they like design C the most. But I love design B and it would be cute on a bag too. Anyway, another thing for the raffle is that you shouldn’t forget to answer the question: What does 2030 mean?

Well, it’s so so soooo okay!!! Don’t worry, because my ever generous sponsor, LUVIEW COSMETICS KOREA is having another…
