2 Hush, neutral! Purple, anyone?

Latest trend to try? There's long list to do but i am just very slow in catching up. Besides the ombre trends on hair and nail art there are also many electric bright colors that is back in the rack as to embrace spring and summer in 4 seasons countries. So does Asian, keeping up too this latest trends of this art of beauty. Bright colors like pink, green, blue and purple  are worn from the brightest shades to darkest shades the cosmetics store has and they were all over the place! Nails, eyes and the lips! Colors are in!

Dramatic wear purple eyeshadow 

My newest muse, is purple eyeshadow (before was the pink). I had been using neutral like all my ages, to play safe. So,i was like, why not stepping out to try other color? Purple eye shadow is great to enhance green eyes but, also compliment very well with almost every types of eye color like brown and blue too.

 From the runway to the red carpet, i come up with my version that is wearable for everyday look to replace the color safe of neutral. At least while purple is still in.

Some interesting fact: Purple used to be famous during the 80's. So does the saying, what can be trendy yesterday can be trendy again tomorrow.
I like this Taylor Swift look with purple eyeshadow. She brings down the diva-ness of the purple shades still with smokey eye effect but wearable.
I am using the Za Dramatic Eyeshadow in Violet. It does not creased or fade up until 7 hours of wearing though maybe the shimmers fades as hours passed. However, this cake is mediumly pigmented but if you just pat the dark shades on your lid instead of brushing it, it is okay.

I prefer using my own brush to apply this eyeshadow since the spongy  things here, does not work in bringing out the color on the skin. Except for highlighting by the way, i will use the thinner tips.

I think purple eye shadow is great for day and even night time wears  depending on which shades of purple one is using. Purple also have few tones of shades like violet, lilac,lavender, plum, and greyish. Lilac and  lavender (softer shades) may looked more suitable for daytime however one needs to limit the amount of shimmers.  Meanwhile the darker shades like dark violet and plum are more suitable for nightime and can looked very sophisticated and diva for party.

Despite purple shades is said great for teens, you can avoid teensy looking by opting to wear the deep purple tones, violet or plum. Me, on the other hand whom a big fan of smokey eyes, prefers to wear combinations of purple tones to create gradations to bring out the smokey effect.

So i come out with my version, which for me is wearable to work and even for just chilling in the weekend. 

Looks quite thick when i close my eyes, but when open, it looks like only a  wash of purple colors  on the lid.  This due to my eye shapes. I haven't figure what's the name yet, by the way.

As you can see, there are gradation of shades of purple. One has to really blend the colors well into each other. You can start by brushing lilac shades to the crease of your eyes. Then use the soft pink on the lid, followed by the darkest shades of purple you have on the outer corner of the eyes by creating, v-shape. Put highlighter on the inner corner of the eyes and near the tear duct. If you have doubt that it does not goes obvious enough, put some more.

So, how do you think of purple shades wear daily for work? It does not hurt to try experimenting colors.

2 Renewed Look, Polished and Neat Blog

Been 'menyepi'(silent) for about a week. I am on an entry of purple eyeshadow looks but still cannot get it done due to busy schedules. But, since this week on, i am going head over heel experimenting on it.  Oh, how many people could say that recording for blogging is an easy task to do? 

But instead of getting it done, i worked on my blog new look. Which is the one i had now. Before it got that really big red bow at the centre (sorry didn't get the screen shot for the old one). So, i changed it with a simpler layout, but still with the jumpbreak posts. I also divided this look to three columns (before got only two but, it looks messy); entries at the center, from the left, it's all about me and my great followers people while on the right column i put it's all about my blog itself. 

To custom your blog design is very easy though it does took some time of the day. Okay, take less than 1 and half hour or so. I liked to browse my layout from the web, Cutest Blog on the Block (which makes my blog looked so damn cute). They have wide ranges of backgrounds to choose from ,all from the very girlish to fabulous, and grunge categories. They also have blogamation, it is a kind of animation that will rain or moving here and there along your blog, badges, template both for blogger and wordpress. You could even custom your web design with them. But of course it is not FOC. If you are interested, go to It is worth a visit....

If you find one design that you like, you can just click them and they will gives you instructions on how to apply it to your blog. It 's all free!

On the jumpbreak posts,what's good about this jumpbreak post, it is like a menu with a summary,enable the readers to choose which entry that they are interested in and can actually increased the blog traffic too since they feature few entries all at once in categories. However,  I didn't learnt to design this  by myself too. Read it from other blog which had become my favorite reading list too, Spice Up Your Blog. You can click this link to go here,  They provided step by step tutorials on doing this. To do this jumpbreak, click here.And there were whole tonnes of tips and tricks provided for your own blogging knowledges and pleasures. 

To adjust the columns , one can go to design, then layout. On top of it, there is a link provided to go to template designer. Click layout there, then choose! After that , you may need to adjust the width of the those columns. You stay in the template designer, choose width. Then , you just drag the cursor while previewing your column's widths from the preview below the drag menu. Adjust until you get the desired width, fits with your background and template. 

My new blog look, the one you are viewing right now. He he he.. 

Okay, i am going to continue what i should be doing since last night, planning a lesson. Or to be more precise, reporting. Because the lesson had been done, the plans was just planned on my big head. Now, it is time to write 'em on the thickest  book i ever had.

There goes my hideous handwriting. I am currently teaching Circle to the Form Two. 

Thanks for stopping by.  If you are a blogger like me, happy blogging keep up the good work.
