Today I will be sharing with you a comprehensive step-by-step for my ‘everyday look’ which involves minimal make-up as well as styling my hair using the Panasonic Multi-Styling Straightener EH-HW58-K.
Don’t we all look like this when we wake up first thing in the morning?
Dull oily skin with messy hair?
Let me show you how to achieve a presentable look, with nothing too much or little and yet still look gorgeous in a short period of time! 🙂
These are the make-up stuffs which I used.
This includes of the following :-
1. Chanel Foundation Compact Powder Vitalumiere Eclat
2. Silkygirl Shimmer Duo Blusher
3. Etude House Face Highlight
4. Canmake Highlighter
5. Missha Under-eye Concealer
6. Makeon Brown Shimmer Eyeliner
5. Shimmer White Eyeliner
6. Bourjois Ultra Black Liquid Eyeliner
7. Bourjois Brown Eyebrown Pencil
8. theBalm Bronzer
9. 2 Brushes – 1 for contouring and 1 for applying blusher
First after bathing and cleansing your face thoroughly after a night’s sleep, ensure your hands are clean before wearing your contacts.
I opt for a more natural looking design with enlarging the pupil effect.
Starting out with my bare face with just my contact lens on.
Applying sunblock before makeup is a MUST and I’m currently using Biore UV Bright Face Milk [Pink] Sunblock with an SPF of 50++.
Then I start applying the Chanel Compact Powder. Remember to apply it downwards as you do not want to clog your pores. Only apply upwards for substances that contains nutrients such as moisturiser and essence.
Next, line your eye thinly.
Then draw your eyebrows.
Hehe, I know my eyebrows need some trimming…and recently I have hopped onto the ulzzang look for eyebrows!
And then conceal your dark circles and blemishes.
Use a brown eyeliner to line your below your eyes and join them to the upper eyeliner on the sides.
And then stick on fake eyelashes.
Now this is optional, you may opt for a more simple look without putting on fake eyelashes or may prefer applying mascara for a more natural look, which I have blogged about in my previous blog post.
Contour your nose if you prefer.
Blend it well and apply highlighter on your forehead, nose bridge, undereyes, chin as well as on your laugh lines.
Draw the inner eye corners with the shimmery white eyeliner for the innocent doe-eyed look as well as ‘open’ up your eyes, resulting in livelier eyes!
You may apply outwards and upwards for a slimmer looking face or apply it at the bottom of your cheekbones.
For the hair, I straightened my hair using the Panasonic Multi-Styling Straightener EH-HW58-K which generously offers a 6-in-1 styling hair designs.
Using the same method in my video tutorial and steps mentioned in my previous blog post using the Nano Straightener, slide it down straight instead of curling. This should be much easier than curling.

You are now ready to head out and face the world!

What does it mean to be a beauty blogger?
Anyone can be a blogger these days but being a ‘power blogger? That is a totally different issue. Being a beauty blogger is one who shares beauty tips and reviews with the readers, who are substantially females. However, that is not to say that men aren’t welcomed either since there is now a growing trend and demand by men on beauty and aesthetic services. This is understandable because everyone wants to look their best! 🙂
To be honest, I was on the verge of giving up on this ‘Best Beauty Blog’ contest because I had ZERO knowledge and experience in creating videos and editing them, as well as ZERO hands-on experience using the hair stylers. I was actually one of the few who was struggling using the styler, even during the Beauty Workshop with Panasonic Singapore. Also, you could see that I still struggled my way through in my video tutorial on using the Panasonic EH-HS95-K Nanocare Straightener. However, I did not edit those ‘NG’ (‘Not Good’) parts because I believe in putting an honest front and moreover, I am not a professional make-up or hair stylist and started off knowing zilch to creating the full works!
I pressed on not only because I love challenges but also because of the encouragements given by my family and friends. For that, I deeply appreciate it. 🙂
Because of this contest, I have learnt so much within such a short period of time.
This includes creating videos which I have been wanting to do for the longest time and now, I can start creating more vlogs! Vlogs are more useful for beauty bloggers in a way because processes of using beauty tools can be more accurately and clearly portrayed compared to using only pictures, which can be a hassle to snap at every stage. My ‘Everyday Makeup Look’ had only pictures instead of videos because I am down with a sore throat and cough. Even during the video tutorial on ‘How to put on fake eyelashes fast’, I was sick and had to suppress my cough which occurs every 10 mins or so. It was tough, I must admit. Till now, I am still suffering from a bad sore throat and cough 😦
Apart from these skills, I had also learnt and understood better issues such as the importance of networking, those who would conscientiously root and vote for you and those who aren’t that willing to do so, and also how to use the hair beauty tools which I made the effort to watch countless of videos.
I am thankful for this opportunity for being one of the finalists for ‘Best Beauty Blog’ and special thanks go out to Panasonic Singapore and OMY.sg in organising this Singapore Blog Awards. Of course, not forgetting to my voters and Facebook fans as well. ❤ 😀
