Look of the day at a cousin's wedding

Yes, another cousin's wedding, Fahrino, on December 24, 2011. He married a girl from South Sumatera. The bright color is not much different from my mom's hometown in West Sumatera.


Morning before Nikah Ceremony

After Nikah, held a traditional ceremony from South Sumatera

Wedding Reception

Here's how I looked. I have started to learn not to follow the color of my outfit when doing my make up.
I still use PAC foundation for my make up. Sorry I forgot other stuffs I used. Yes, I wore my glasses! My eyes weren't fit for wearing contacts that day. I sent this picture to my husband, he said he loves it.

Package ordered from tkoskin.com

Hello, it's been awhile since my last post. I miss blogging so much!
Work has been making me sooo busy, my Winalite business has been too! Oh well, I enjoy making money, LOL.

This post is about my order from TkoSkin (http://www.tkoskin.com/). I've been subscribing to the mailing list for awhile. Had a thought of back and forth to buy the products. I know Tonya makes amazing unique products there.
I decided to buy when she had limited number of coconut complexion polish on July 25, 2011.
Here's my order:
- Bombshell Pack w/Free Bonuses ($99.99)
- Coconut Complexion Polish ($32.95)
Shipping was free at that time. I sent them to my husband's address. So when he came here for our wedding, he brought them with him.

What are they in Bombshell Pack?

- 10 Oz of Body butter beautiful (BBB) + Vit E 
- 12 Oz of Shea Shoufle + Vit E

- 20 ml Vit E
Large Egyptian loofah to scrub away blemishes and stretch marks - Two bars of the best quality Raw African Black Soap (oooh, I have been dying to try this kind of soap!)
- Free Soap Dish & Travel BBB


I also received sample jar of Coconut Complexion Polish.... I've tried this in small jar.
"The Complexion Polish is an organic scrub which polishes your complexion... after you use it once, you fall in LOVE with yourself all over again. The clarifying cane complex uses enzymes within the sugar to reveal a fresh new face which is tight and full of life" (from the website)

I've been using BBB for 1 month now. It's creamy texture, but absorb easily to my skin and doesn't stain my cloth. My skin feel smooth after application after shower.
I've taken the pictures of products but haven't downloaded them to my laptop, so pictures coming soon!

If you remember, I bought African beauty products long time ago from Afro*scent*ric.
I've just checked her Etsy page, seems she is not there anymore :(

Wedding Day

Here I am.... The wedding, on September 17, 2011.
It took more than three hours to finish everything. One and half hour for make up and the rest for doing the head cover with many many many pins.... From 2 PM to 5.30 PM
Mrs. Dewi, my bridal make up artist, was ill so Ms. Vera, her daughter did the make up. She also did the decoration of my wedding throne.
Vera put heavier coverage but I still love it. Many people said I looked different, glowing....
I was soooo stressful when saw my uncle's text. He said he'd be late to pick up Hakim from airport. I couldn't think anymore. I just prayed and prayed. I know Hakim will manage to contact us.
Voila! Our first meeting, he was at my door, smiling. We chat for awhile then he got ready with his suite.

Bridal make up test

As I'm moving toward to my wedding date, I decided to get bridal make up test with the make up artist. She's the mother of my friend's. Her name is Mrs. Dewi.
When I was at her place, we discussed about the color of the my wedding dress, how I'd like to have my head cover, and many more. I also discussed about the decoration of wedding "throne", which will be done by my friend's older sister. Yes, the family has a business related to wedding :)
So Mrs. Dewi prep my face by cleaning, toning, and apply ice cubes to my face.
She picked up neutral colors, which what I have in mind.
Here's the result (taken after few hours, when I got home, I forgot to bring my camera with me):

 When I flew back to Jakarta and transited in Changi, I bought Kiehl's Rare Earth Pore Refining Toner. I bought this at Shanghai Pudong International Airport, alas.... I cannot bring it through Jakarta, I was allowed to bring this only until Singapore! So I canceled this in Shanghai and bought at Changi Singapore.

The price is not much different from the one in Shanghai, around USD30

What it says in the website (http://www.kiehls.com/Rare-Earth-Pore-Refining-Tonic/793,default,pd.html):

Benefit of Anion, negative ions

Last week, I had a chance to listen to a testimonial of a lady, who has a 17 year-old boy, who's been sick for four months. They come from Maos, Cilacap.
A week before, I heard about his case for the first time, from a friend of mine who met this lady's husband.
So, the boy had a disease called Pemphigus Vulgaris (owkaaay.... the name scared me)... It happened to one in a 100,000 people!
 (Check out what Pemphigus Vulgaris is here and here)
It started from a sprue on his mouth inner wall, then spread to the whole area. All over his body, from head to toe covered by absces... He lost his weight, couldn't move.
My friend suggested the father to put one Anion chip on his forehead to test out. After one night, the result was that the absces skin below the area of the Anion chip has dried and recovered.
My friend was inspired by Baby Rupert from Philippines, who's had skin disease too.Baby Rupert had Skin Scalded Syndrome (Scalded skin syndrome is a skin infection in which the skin becomes damaged and sheds, http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/001352.htm)



I searched whether there's information in Youtube about that baby.... And yes! I found several clips.

Here you are..... Amazing.....

Organic Vanilla Beans benefit for beauty

One of my online shops provides Organic Vanilla Beans.
My partner wrote this interesting articles in Bahasa, and I decided to translate it and post it here.

Get beautiful by using Vanilla? Is it possible? The answer is why not! Just imagine if perfume products we often use is tasteless, odorless or just plain, certainly would be very boring, isn't it? Vanilla is one of the many types of herbs that can be used as fragnance natural materials for beauty products. It's found that around 300 natural ingredients contained in the vanilla bean can provide many benefits to women's beauty treatments, ranging from skin care types (natural skin care), hair care (natural hair care) and oral care (natural oral care).

Trend of natural herbs for beauty products application started in France and Germany. The awareness of the dangers of synthetic fragnance which has been the dominant use in beauty products arose. An interesting data obtained from a consumer research organization based in Germany the Gesellschaft für Konsumforschung (GfK) in 2009, the market potential for sales of beauty products made from natural herbs with no artificial or synthetic chemicals in the German Panzers were to grow significantly by 7% each year , recorded in 2009 when the associated value of sales of beauty products made from natural herbs in this country which is around 717 million Euros.
Likewise, a study conducted by an international research institute that is Kline Group, predicted up to year 2014 when there will be a significant market growth of demand for beauty products made from natural herbs good for the Asian market (13%), Europe (9%) and USA (8%). So what exactly is to be excellence in beauty products that use these raw natural herbs? As written by De Anna Nelson in his article 5 Different Natural Cosmetic Trend:
a. Going Organic, Environmentally Friendly & Equipment Caring for Nature.
b. Natural Colors, No Artificial Dyes presence in the creation of a Creative Product
c. Natural Ingredients, Natural Herbs Materials that do not cause side effects
d. Eliminating toxins, Reduces Risk of Chemicals as Toxic Body
e. Reduce allergens, Reduce Allergies normally generated Effects Cosmetic Products


Ever heard of Vanilla Bean Facial Scrub? Vanilla Bean Lip Scrub? Or Vanilla Brown Sugar Body Scrub? Massage Oil with Vanilla Beans? Homemade Vanilla Bean Bath Syrup? The use of vanilla bean as a raw material for natural beauty treatments in practice is already common for people in Europe where even become a kind of home-based or Homemade recipe Recipes, including has become a business opportunity as well as commercial products traded with attractive packaging. Just be cautious in buying beauty products made from raw natural vanilla on the market, the label is not yet pure vanilla can be a guarantee that such products using 100% natural vanilla bean, because the manufacturer could have used a synthetic vanilla in order to make profits.

A Natural Cosmetics Conference event held in the city of Nuremberg Germany about 2 years ago emphasized the importance of supervision and standardization for all products made from raw natural beauty on the market so that the beauty products are made from synthetic materials can not be expressed naturally. None other than this considering its market potential and opportunities that will continue to grow about 1 billion U.S. dollars per year. The standardization is also expected to create a better distribution channels and orderly for beauty products made from natural herbs that have the potential to increase its sales from year to year.

My Niece's look for Kartini Day

To honor a heroine who fought for women equality, R.A. Kartini, we observe Kartini Day every April 21.
On that, children at school would wear traditional outfit.
My niece chose to wear Balinese outfit and my sister asked me to do her make up.
Oh la la, what do I know about Balinese make up??? I tried to recall and made it as similar as possible.
I used mineral make up foundation and powder on her from Aromaleigh.
Even though I have applied moisturizer on her face, somehow it wasn't blending to her skin.
Foundation not blending in :(

Nice smile, baby

Eye look


I used eye pigments from Providence & Grace: Arabia & Enchanted Forrest.
Revlon Mascara
Black eye liner
NYX eye pencil in white (906) for the white dots

Gold and green combo, look at that eye lash!
