I did some digging and saw people tagging them with their goodies and on top of that they got receipts girlfriends! Like real receipts when they bought their stuff.

Nygmarose top 5 makeup stash

Makeup lover like myself have massive makeup collections. I am running out of space in my beauty box and sometimes I come across new palette that I’d forgotten I had all this while. All this makeup and I will still buy more. I mean… There’s no such thing as too much makeup. If you’re a makeup artist like me, you definitely have to stock up your makeup. I was looking around my beauty box and I realise I have a few products that I will instantly gravitate to. I want to share my top favourite makeup products with you.

1.) Eyeshadow

IG: @nygmarose

When I’m in a hurry or I have to pack just one palette for traveling, my go to is Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette. I can create a simple neutral look and I can switch it up to a more dramatic look too. On my lazy days I will use the shade coco on my lid and take a blending brush to blend it upwards to my crease. On my not so lazy day, I like to use the shade maneater on my crease add coco to the outer corner and blessed on my lid. I’m not a big fan of the textured eyeshadow but I do use them on my lid when I do a black smokey eye so the colour would pop. Unfortunately Huda discontinued this palette when she came up with desert dusk palette.

2.) Primer

source: sephora.com

I see this product everywhere on Instagram. My first thought was that ahhh just another hype online and probably isn’t that good. I was sceptical. It was pricey too! Sephora Singapore recently bring in the Farsali Rose Gold elixir and Unicorn essence. I went to the store to try it out and end up getting the unicorn essence. I have an oily skin….and also the fact I just want to be fancy having unicorn stuff on my face. OMG girlfriends….. This product is legit. I love the smell, I love how it feels on my skin and I love how my makeup look after using this primer. Best thing is that this is water-based so it helps with my oily skin and it is also free from parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. YAY! Get it here.

3.) Foundation

Fenty Beauty. Where do I even begin. Rihanna slay at everything. She’s the ultimate boss babe. Ever since I tried Fenty foundation, I never want any other foundation. It is so light and it stays matte on my oily skin. I don’t need much because the coverage is amazing. You have 40 shades to choose from and I am in the shade 310.  I am looking forward to more Fenty products because girl.. I need to get the whole collection! To be honest I love all of Fenty Beauty base products. It’s my go to for a flawless snatched base! Get it here.

4.) Concealer

I love a good concealer because I have acne scars and hyperpigmentation to cover. My all time favourite concealer is by Roxxmetics. Roxxmetics is a Singapore brand and I come across this brand when I participated in an instagram contest. They sent me the full cover concealer as one of the prize. This product is so amazing. Just a little bit of concealer was able to cover the hyperpigmentation around my mouth area. I use the shade medium. Get it here.

5.) Lashes

IG: @nygmarose

My go to dramatic vavavoom lashes would be Carmen by Huda Beauty. I love my lashes long and thick. 😉 Of course some days I like a pair of nice wispies but if you know me, I go big. Carmen just frame my eyes nicely. I put Carmen on whenever I do a dramatic bold eye look. Be it a cut crease or nice smokey eye. Sadly you can’t get huda lashes in Singapore so you have to buy it from their website which can cost a lot with shipping. Get it here.

There you go girlfriends! That’s my top 5 makeup products. Share with me your top 5. Follow me on instagram or twitter for more beauty updates and my secret project 😉 Until next time!

Urban Decay Heat Palette

Hey Makeup Junkies! It has been awhile and I’m so sorry for the lack of update. It has been a hectic few months. There’s a lot of new releases that I didn’t get to update. :( Anyway let’s move on to the good part. URBAN DECAY HEAT PALETTE.

Have you guys gotten the new palette? The moment I saw the teaser I got excited. It is packed with a bunch of beautiful warm tones. I can already imagine the number of looks I can create with this palette. Sultry sexy warm tones. You can go without the strong liner and just rock the eyeshadow by itself with a nice wispies lashes.

I haven’t gotten the palette yet as I wanna give away a bunch of my eyeshadow palettes. If you’re from Singapore it is retailing for $83 and you can get it from Sephora. If you’re from the states, it is retailing for $54 in Sephora.

Share with me your looks on instagram with the hashtag (#nygmarosebeauty) and I might just feature some of my favourite.

Huda Beauty. Yes she did it again.

Step aside Kimoji because the beauty community have an even better emoji app. Introducing… HUDAMOJI. Don’t you just love Huda Beauty? I’m literally obsessed. Ever since I got my hand on her liquid lipsticks and eyeshadow palette, I was just in love. She will be launching the emoji app soon so follow her on instagram (@hudabeauty) so you won’t miss out.

What else did Huda come up with? Highlighter palette. Yup. When I saw her post on instagram I started squealing. That’s it just take my money already! I don’t care what people say but I love to glow. Cover me in highlighter please. She always deliver and I am excited to get this highlighter palette. No idea if this is another limited edition but I hope not. I do not have the exact date on when she will be launching the highlighter palette but I will definitely update you.

Harley Quinn inspired

IG: @nygmarose

 

Recently I uploaded this Harley Quinn inspired look on my facebook page and instagram. I got a lot of love and I’m so excited to create more looks like this. I focus more on beauty makeup but once in a while I wanna switch things up a little bit. The challenge with creating that look was all the little detailing. You really need a very good eyeliner. I use a little bit of Kat Von D tattoo liner and also LA girl gel liner.

Now that eyebrow. I do not have any liquid/pomade type of consistency to use it for my brow. Thank goodness I have the inglot duraline. That stuff is magic. I mix the inglot duraline to H&M eyeshadow Kobai Azalea. So that’s what I use to do my brow. You should totally invest on the inglot Duraline. If you have a dried up gel liner/eyebrow pomade or even to get pigmentation on an eyeshadow you can use this stuff.

I use Hudabeauty palette for the shadow on my eyes. Using shades Maneater + Henna &  Black Truffle. Finish off the look with eyeliner and get the lipstick in red & black.

I’m looking forward to creating more looks. Do you have any suggestion to what other look you would like to see? Leave a comment. Till next time.

Countdown to 2017: Top 5 Makeup Trends in 2016

1.) Glitter everywhere!

Seems like in 2016, we are obsessed with everything sparkling. Glitter is everywhere. Me on the other hand, I have a love/hate relationship with glitter. I mean I love the sparkling shiny effect but…. getting it everywhere is a whole other story. Have you ever had glitter get in your eye? Yes. Nightmare. Some of the glitter trends are glitter brows, glitter lips, glitter eyelid & glitter tears.

2.) Metallic Lipstick

I remember in the early 2000, metallic lipstick was huge. I used to have a pink metallic hello kitty lipstick. Ahh the memories.. Now it’s making a come back. Out with matte in with metallic. Makeup brands like Kylie Cosmetics, Jeffree Star Cosmetics, Milani and others are coming up with a lot of metallic shades and it’s amazing. What are some of your favorite Metallic shades?

3.) Contouring to the extreme (Body Parts)

Oh how wonderful life is with contouring.. Or else my face will be so flat…. and round. The only contouring I do is on my face. However there has been trend of extreme contouring where people actually contour their body parts! The most common one is contouring the chest to make it appear like you have bigger… uhm.. bosoms. I have also come across videos where people contour their tummy for illusion of abs, contouring their neck and leg to make it appear slimmer. What do you think of these extreme contouring?

4.) Gold flake eyeshadow

Maybe this is not a super big trend but I saw this when Emma Watson rock it on the red carpet. I also starting to see beauty gurus doing makeup look inspired by it. It’s bold and I think it’s more suitable for the runway, red carpet or perhaps night out in town? I feel like you could always get away with bold look in the night-time.

 

5.) Baking

Oh no we’re not talking about muffin or cupcakes honey. We are baking that face. What????? No don’t start getting idea of putting your face in the oven. Baking here basically mean putting setting powder and leave it to “bake” for 5 minutes(or more) and then dust it off. In the beginning I was kind of skeptical about it but as I tried it…. OMG. This baking stuff works. I realise it sets my concealer better and hide my eyebag like a magic! However be very careful to choose a setting powder that works or else you’re gonna have white undereye which shows up in photos. I’m of the deeper skin tone and finding the right setting powder is important so I won’t appear ashy. I’m currently using Sacha Buttercup setting powder. For people with deeper skin tone like mine I think this works best.
