My take on Eyeshadows and Material World’s Anna Sui Giveaway!
Did I mention I love participating in Giveaways? I think I did. Did I mention that Material World is awesome with lots of interesting Giveaways? I think I did. Gosh, participating in giveaways is like buying lottery except that you don’t have to spend a single cent! Yay! And winning giveaways make me happy! What’s not to like when you can enjoy tiny victories in the form of giveaways! Haha. Of course, I do not participate in every giveaway just to win something. I participate in something I can relate to and things I really like! Just that there are plenty all over. Haha.
Basically, I am boring when it comes to the colours of eyeshadows. I stick to natural, earth and brown tones most of the time. I declare that it looks best for Asian girls. At least for me!
Here are some colours I tried previously:-
- Pink: I tried and looked like I have swollen eyes. Freaking puffy goldfish.
- Blue: Please don’t ask me why I even bother. I look like someone from Mars. Blue and creepy.
- Green: Yes. I tried green. The makeup artist must have hated me. She applied green eyeshadow and blood red lipstick in my Varsity Pageant Finals. Yes, I participated in pageants before, that is a story for another day. But freaking green eyeshadow and blood red lipstick? She explained that she thinks I can carry it off. Did I mentioned my gown was pastel blue? Gosh. I almost burst out in tears.
- Black/Grey: I saw Steph doing her smokey eyes during our D&D one year, tried and ended up looking like a Panda with two black eyes.
Ever since these incidents, I’ve stick with my safest brown, earth and slightly shimmering gold hues. I believe there are nothing wrong with the colours, it is probably just me. I am contemplating if I should go for makeup workshops. HMPH.
Here’s my faithful eyeshadow from L’Oreal which I’ve used for a long time. This is my daily palette and also the palette I used during fancy dinners.
But when I read that Material World is giving away Anna Sui Limited Eye Shadow Palette 2013 in No. 2, the palette is perfect! Something for a change. I want it! This is definitely in time to replace my almost gone L’Oreal eyeshadow! Keeping my fingers crossed. Haha.
