FOTD + NOTD + SOTD? : A Pop of RED!

Hi lovelies!
How's everything going?
Hope you have a magnificent day :D

Just a quick post because I've been playing with RED lately!

I don't know what to call my look, but a pop of RED just reminds me of a 
"Modern Pin Up Look Girl"

Ha! Please don't hurt me! 
I am NONE look like the beautiful model above and not gonna recreate the look on the picture either! :)

But I've been noticing girls who dare to wear a pop of RED! It's gorgeous in every single girl, I believe :)

For the palette that I'm gonna use is all from Sariayu Palette in "Etnika Nusa Tenggara" that I got from Sariayu Martha Tilaar Eastern Inspiration Event.
To check my full post about the event and full swatches of the palette --> click here!

And this is what I come up with..

 FOTD ( Face of The Day ) 

1. Eyes

From this palette, you're getting 2 sets of trio eyeshadow. The color that caught my eyes is actually the fresh lime green that I put in inner corner on my eyes. As the crease color I choose the dark bronzy brown. And to give some dimension to my eyes, I put the shimmery orange into the center on my lid that will also make a beautiful gradient from lime green into a dark brown color. As for filling my lower lash line, I freshen up a bit with the gorgeous teal color.

2. Cheeks

For the cheeks, I simply straight using what I got in the palette. The color is beautiful too! The blush is a shimmery peachy nude, and the bronzer is a soft shimmery brown that will make you glow! :D

3. Lips

For the lips, it's from Clinique in 97 Party Red. Geez, I had this for so long that I couldn't remember! But from some of the red shade lipstick that I tried and own, I think this is works the best on me :P

NOTD ( Nail of The Day )

For the nail, it is my long time favorite red blood color that I often use from The Face Shop. Too bad.. it doesn't have a name for the shade, but I believe the nail color is RD302. Gorgeous. Color. Ever.

SOTD ( Shoes of The Day )

Haha.. I don't mean to brag or anything, but I guess it's worth to mention. I got this from Gaudi. It is a gorgeous red blood color and a 3.5/4 inch heels, I believe.

And you know what? I've been eye-ing this baby for quite sometimes. And I know it's meant to be when.. it was on SALE!!

*jaw dropping*

Such a STEAL! :D
Although it's a size bigger on me, but that's why other genius women invent heels liner, right?
Yea, must be the inventor is a WOMAN! :P


Thanks for reading this post!
Do you have any favorite RED shade beauty items?

 Good day all!

Review & Swatches : NYX 10 Color Eyeshadow Palette in Super Model

Hi lovelies!
How's your day?
I hope it's great! :D

Today I'll be reviewing eyeshadow palette from one of my favorite makeup brand, NYX! :D
I just think that they really had a good quality product, and most of all.. affordable!
Great thing about their eyeshadow are pigmented, buttery and glide on so smoothly.

Actually, this particular product is the first ever 10 color eyeshadow palette when I begin to learn about makeup! Woops, yeah I had it for quite long!
The other day, when I'm cleaning up my dresser, I rediscovered it again and use it again and FALL IN LOVE again! haha.. Have you ever been that? 

And holy molly, Why I never made a post dedicated to this palette?! >,<"

oh well.. better late than never, right? 
Here we go! :D

 NYX 10 Color Eyeshadow Palette
The Runway Collection
ESP10C05 Super Model

 As you can see, inside the palette there is huge mirror and eyeshadow applicator.
But who cares about that, right? All I need is the actual eyeshadow!

Well, yup. I think it's a beauty in a pan :D

 Swatches Time!

.from top to bottom.
.no primer. no base. indoor / artificial light. 
>> NOTE -> (*) : finishes

1 satin* - 2 matte with silver specked* - 3 matte with silver specked* - 4 matte with silver specked* - 5 matte*

6 satin* - 7 shimmer* - 8 shimmer* - 9 satin* - 10 satin*


For the eyeshadow :
  • The swatches above need 2-3 swipe to get to the heavy opaque color 3cm long each stroke
  •  All the color payoff is true from what you see in the pan
  • Buttery texture
  • Easy to blend
  • Awesome pigmentation
  • And one downside thing about the color 2,3,4 >> the silver or glittery specked more like a fall out to me. Even the swatches above couldn't capture them, because they already falling off and gone with the wind -_-" ( Well, with primer or base underneath can solve the problem! )

My thoughts
Well, I'm quite pleased with what I got in this palette. They offer such a different finishes with a smoky and deep blue variant of color. The hot pink not forget to mention, is the "diva" of them all.

. zoom in to see detail on texture and finishes .

I personally bought this product at Indonesian multiply market, and for the price, I'm sorry I couldn't remember it. But the price will be IDR. 100000-135000rupiahs ( around $ 10-13.50 US Dollar ). For NYX official site go to , for this particular eyeshadow palette -> click here!


So, do you own any NYX Eyeshadow Palette?
How you like it?

Let me know what you think!
Good day all!
Smile :) 

NOTE: all of the product were purchased by my own money and reviewed by honest thought. It's just my way to give you an opinion in buying product that you considered to purchase. Be a smart buyer! Hope you like my reviews.

DIY : Leopard Accesories Holder

Hi girls!
How's your day?
Hope it's magical! :D

DIY Project, anyone?
This time I'm thinking of making a jewellery or accessories holder.
I've been meaning of making this through a toilet tissue roller. Well, I bet it's not new and you can find lots of tutorials on Youtube :D

And adding a twist, I'll make mine with some "left over" fabric and recycled things at my house. And this is what I came up with..


Yey! I'm quite happy with the result, that's why I want to share it.

Unto the tutorial..
Here we go!

Here's how I did :
1. First, the tools that you'll gonna need are :
  • Toilet Tissue Roller ( 9 rolls ).
  •  Left Over Fabric or Other Unused Clothes ( we'll gonna need black fabric and pattern of choice as an accent ).
  • Old Newspaper or Magazine.
  • Wood Block ( as a base for it stand ).
  • Glue ( I'm using UHU ).
  • Scissor.
  • Ruler.
  • Cutting Mat. 
  • Pencil or Pen.
  • And you're good to go! :D

Yes, I've been collecting these :D

As for the "left over" fabric, I'm using from my other DIY Project 
>> From Old Pants into Highwaisted Short <<
( not posted on the blog )

Unread or Old Magazines.

Wood Block or other hard / sturdy material as a base of structure.

And other familiar tools that you personally need :)

2. Second, to make the horizontal arm of the holder, we need to attach 3 tissue rollers. 

I just glue them with UHU.

And fill them in with squeeze old magazine sheets.

As for the vertical support of the holder, 2 rollers that glued together ( taller support ) and one roller as a short support >> SAME TECHNIQUE.

3. Then cut a black fabric to cover all the arms.

As for the support and the base, I'm using leopard print fabric as a cover.

 covering all the supports ( vertical arms ) with leopard print fabric.

 For the base, 2 wood blocks I tape together. Each function as a base for each of the support.

Cover them with leopard print fabric.

4. Time to put them all together...
 >> sorry, I have to cut the pictures step detail until the finish result, because I lost some pictures in my memory card >,<" I hope you get the detail clearly when you see the end result :)

And there you have it!

Fill them with your favorite accessories :)

It's perfect for displaying my recent go to accessories. Like my current watches, bracelets or bangles and necklaces.


Being inspired what makes you creative!
Thanks for reading this post!
I hope you inspired! :)
Good day all!
Smile :)
