Paddle Pop.

Hello pretty earthlings!! Last night, my family and I threw a surprise birthday dinner for my great-aunt as it was her 80th birthday. According to Chinese tradition, when someone turns 80 years old, it calls for a grand celebration. Same goes when a baby turns exactly one month old.

So for the dinner, I decided to bust out my BH Cosmetics' Eyes On The 80's palette (since great-aunt turned 80..geddit geddit?) and use it for the very first time. I had no idea which shades to use because there are just so many to choose from, but I did end up with some pink and purple, and a speck of gold.

Without further ado, here are the products I used!


  • Essence All About Matt! primer/base
  • Makeup Forever HD foundation
  • Tarte Maracuja Creaseless concealer
  • Catrice Cosmetics Prime And Fine "mattifying" powder

  • Take shade '3' first and apply on the outer V of eyelid. Slowly add and build intensity to map out the shape of the entire eye-look prior to applying other eyeshadows on entire eyelid. As opposed to applying the darkest shade last, applying it first can save you the hassle of applying everything again from the beginning if you mess up (like getting a weird "tail" of the look). I find this helpful!
  • Upon achieving the desired shape, proceed to add shade '2' to the centre of eyelid. Blend it to shade '3' to ensure that there are no obvious, harsh lines.
  • Dab with your ring finger on shade '1' and slightly apply it on the inner most corner of eyelid. This particular shade is very pigmented so applying with fingers will make it appear to be more vibrant. Also, this shade acts as a highlighting shade as the previous two shades lean towards the darker side.
  • Apply '1', '2' and '3' on lower lash line to balance out the entire eye-look, so it won't look too top-heavy.

  • Anastasia BH Dipbrow pomade in Ebony
  • Anastasia BH tinted brow gel in Chocolate
  • Catrice Cosmetics liquid liner in Dating Joe Black (thank you Nikkie!)
  • Yves Saint Laurent Babydoll mascara
  • NYX soft matte lip cream in Addis Ababa

(which looks more flattering as Chrome, my default filter, really does bring out the colors!)
((which goes to show that this look is awesome because selfies using a phone is the way to go))

I guess that's it! If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to drop me a message below. I hope everyone has had a great weekend, because I certainly did! I've finally graduated from UBD on Saturday *throws confetti*. But wait, here comes Masters *picks up confetti, one by one*.

Have a great week ahead of you and as always, thank you for reading!
