Simple eye look with a pop of color

Today I was feeling to do simple eye look.
Simple eye look for today with pop of color :
I primed my eye lids first. I just used one eye shadow from The Balm Nude Tude on the lids, black eye liner using Maybelline eye studio gel liner in black, PAC liquid eye liner in teal over the black eye liner.
And voila! 

PS: I didn't believe that I didn't write a post about The Balm Nude Tude palette. Okay, it will come :)

- Creme Puff, buy 1 get 1 free at IDR 70,000
They had another promo: Buy 3 lip glosses at IDR 99,000!

Maybelline Color Tattoo and Nude Lipstick

Been awhile since I went to department store. When I was at Grand Metropolitan Mall Bekasi a week ago, I saw Maybelline Color Tattoos were displayed at Maybelline counter.
I said, whaaat?? Finally they are here.

I thought Color Tattoo will never be here, not at that price. I know many online cosmetic shops have been selling them for a couple of months now at price range IDR 100,000 to 200,000.

Reviving MAC Paint Pots

Out of no where, last night I searched on Google on how to revive dried MAC pain pots. I found several blog posts and Youtube videos.

Purple eyes for Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Yaaay, today is my nephew 5th birthday. I took my family for birthday lunch at Roppan at Living World, Alam Sutera.

Look of the day: College small reunion

I had a college small reunion on October 5, 2013. We had it at Hanamasa Restaurant at FX Senayan.
This is how I dressed up for that day :)
The blouse was new, I bought it a couple of weeks ago at Thamrin City wholesaler.
The bottom was not shirt but some kind of harem pants.
The hijab style was easy. I only knot two ends of the pashmina around my neck.

30 Days Fit Challenge

It's September already!
As I flipped back and forth my dream book of 2013, I saw many things I haven't done or executed yet. One of them is the health aspect, where I wanted to reduce my weight but also be fit. I want all my blood tests come in normal level.
I've decided to give commitment to this specific resolution.
I was on and off to go to the gym and exercise. In June 2013 I signed up for program with personal training but I wasn't consistent and didn't have regular time.

I was inspired by a fitness youtubers, Keaira Lashae, who posted a video about 30 Day Fit Challenge.
I thought, it worth doing it. Thirty days is a sufficient time, short enough for me and for everyone to do daily and get results.
Here's her video on the program. She has prepared 30 Days program complete with exercise video for each day.

Star Crushed Minerals review

After using the products (foundation, blush on, eye primer, and eye shadow), here's my thought and review about Star Crushed Minerals.

A. Customer Service
Very good!
Prompt response on my inquiries

B. Shipment
Order made on July 16, 2013.
Package arrived at home on August 24, 2013. 
Usually I receive overseas package within 14 days, but this took longer time. When I messaged Edie on August 18, 2013 to let her know that I haven't received it and asked about racking number, she told me that tracking number is not available due to high cost. She actually covered USD 7.50 out of total shiping cost USD 14 while I only paid the cost USD 6.50.
This was so "generous" of her! Awesome! I was surprised because with the discounted price she gave me, I don't know whether she made profit or not.

Star Crushed Minerals haul

On July 7, 2013 I received a message from Edie, the owner of Star Crushed Minerals, at Etsy.Com. She said that she'd like to invite me to her grand opening sale. She gave me 25% discount beyond her sale price! Wowww, that was a very good deal!

I didn't know how she found my Etsy profile, but I was glad.... I replied to make confirmation about the discount and also asked about her foundation shades. 
I also contacted her on her Facebook page because I wasn't hearing anything from her. She then answered one week after that, and we had close communication ever since.
I make use the discount by buying many eye shadow samples, lol.

Sari Ayu Rice and Beans Face Mask Series

When Sari Ayu Rice and Beans Face Mask Series were launched a couple of months ago, I was eager to try every variant. The problem was, all were in big jars. It would be too expensive to buy all four types of Sari Ayu Rice and Beans Face Mask.
Then, recently Sari Ayu released new packaging: 10 gram sachets. I'm thrilled!
I bought all variants. Each was IDR 7,500. I bought them at Carrefour supermarket.

They consists of:
1. Black Sticky Rice Anti Aging Mask
2. White Rice Whitening Mask
3. Green Bean Firming Mask
4. Red Rice Moisturizing Mask

FOTD Yellow eye shadow, natural look

For today's look I went bold by using yellow eye shadow in Go Palette-Sydney no. 10 and 6 and combine with The Body Shop Shimmer Cube Palette no. 2 and 3.

I'm satisfied with the result because it turned out to be not that bold. I'm still learning how to pull out bright colors. It's so much fun experimenting.

Outfit Of The Day (OOTD) - Bandung Trip

June 1, 2013, I had a trip to Bandung for our training. I know it will be great to wear my Brazil jersey :)
I don't have yellow hijab, but that turmeric color is still okay... It was plain, so I added a brooch onto my hijab, left side of my head....

I drove and had several friends with me. We left Jakarta at 6.15 AM.

I incorporate the outfit with my look. I use Coastal Scents' Go Palette Sydney. I made it as light and fresh as possible as it will be a whole day trip.
I choose green and golden color for my eye shadow (no. 8 & 12).

Latest Cancer Information

I just need to re-post this article I found on
A very informative article and some of the points I also heard from experts in my place (Jakarta)! Original post is on Facebook.



1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.

3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

Indonesia Fashion Week 2013 and hijab competition

Indonesia Fashion Week 2013 is held at Jakarta Convention Center, from February 14 to 17, 2013.
As you know I'm participating in Sari Ayu Hijab Style Competition.
I downloaded several hijab tutorials from Youtube and planned to practise. But I didn't manage my time and only reviewed the videos the night before D-Day, lol....
The day before, I went to market to buy Sari Ayu's eyeliner and mascara. Because the rules says that all products used must be from Sari Ayu.
I didn't sleep early while I knew I needed good rest. Woke up at 5.30 AM, got ready, put on only moisturizer and my dress, then I drove to the venue (6.11.AM). It took only 25 minutes  from my place!
I had quick breakfast in the car and looked for Merak Room.

Skin break out

When I was organizing my skin care products, I saw The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Face Wash which contained only half bottle. I started using it again for 3 weeks now and alas! It caused my skin breaks out. Now I remember why I took away that face wash from my daily routine! It dries my skin and my skin feels tight. Oh my!
I read  the review here and some of the reviewer experienced the similar thing like mine.

I'm back to my facial cream that hubby gave me. Of course I must use it sparingly because the content is 2/3 left and I'm still waiting for him to send me new packages. I bought Wardah's facial wash (I will write about Wardah Cosmetics soon)... It's not pricey. It's gentle to the face. It doesn't have detergent or soap based. I love it.

To repair the skin condition, beside changing the facial wash, I also apply The Body Shop Aloe Vera night soothing cream and The Face Shop Sleeping mask.

Sari Ayu & Hijab Ayu Community are holding Hijab Style Competition.
It will be held on February 15, 2013 at Merak Room.

I saw the announcement in early January 2013 on Sari Ayu's Facebook page. Well, why not doing something new in my spare time, I said to myself. I love make up, I've been creating looks every day, but I'm not used with wearing styled hijab.
It was my first time participating in this kind of event.

We will use the latest Sari Ayu color trend called Pesisir SentraJava

Injured right foot, follow up X-ray

Today I visited my doctor and bring my new X-ray for his review.
He said the X-ray shows healing process, the bridging of the tissue is there. And I was fortunate to have the X-ray last week because today the machine was broken.
I need to keep taking the medicine, use the ankle support all the time, and walk in precautions.
He said actually I need to rest my foot for awhile, cannot work all the time... Well, probably I can do it next week :)
I'm grateful that the foot is healing....

Wardah trio eye shadow G palette swatch

Here is the swatch of Wardah trio eye shadow G palette.
Wardah has 14 shades of these trios.

The price is IDR 39,000
I bought this one because their Beauty Advisor advised me when I looked for contour kit. They don't have it but the darkest color can be used for contouring.

The texture is creamy. I usually used the lightest color for under brow, blended with the other colored eye shadow on crease so the look is cleaner, even though I can't say that it's for highlight.

Injured right foot, follow up

I have driven my car right after I felt my injured foot is getting better. The problem is that when I'm in bad traffic or stuck in traffic jam. My foot will start to hurt again as I step on the brake and gas over and over again.
My orthopedic asked me to come back for check a week after but I keep failing to meet the schedule due to some work. Finally I was able to see him on January 19, 2013. I told him that I felt pain during the last several days especially when I am in operating room with cold temperature.
He gave me new prescription. I will need to get X-ray again in two weeks. I still sit on the floor or sit on the chair or my bed when I do my pray. I still wear the ankle support.

I went to hospital for my follow up X-Ray today because I won't be able to come meet my doctor on Jan 26 or Feb 2 due to DNA Nite events.
I'm planning to visit him next Tuesday with my new X-Ray.

Injured right foot

I ended 2012 with injured right foot!
It happened on Sunday afternoon when I went to my friend's house, on December 16, 2012. It happened so quick. I was walking towards my car and all of sudden I sprained my foot. It was very very painful. But the pain didn't kick in until 3 hours after that. I was driving back to my house.

December 17, 2012
The next day, I called my traditional masseur and let her massage my injured foot. Man, I was in pain! I screamed and screamed. Even my 4 years old nephew rub my forehead to calm me down (awww he's so sweet, I  had to burst in laugh because of  that).
