Video uploading problem

Actually I've taken a make-up tutorial video the other day and been trying to upload it here but in the end got error. Maybe the video is too long? But I've compressed the size already. Maybe I need to edit the video? Make it shorter? Tapi terpotong la celoteh aku dalam video tu nanti...

Natural Make-up Tutorial

Hi guys! At last the other day I managed to take a video for make-up tutorial while Dacchi was sleeping. But I was having a difficult time to upload it since that day. Adoi nasib baiklah hari ni dapat upload, but that's after I reduced the filesize again! So, today's tutorial is Natural Make-up. But this tutorial is the usual way on how I put on make-up before I learn new make-up technique with Heri my make-up artist (my cikgu).

Photo: These are the minimum essential tools you must have in your make-up bag!


This video tutorial is quite long. But after all, I just need 30 mins to put on full make-up before going out! So just fast forward kat mana-mana part yang macam lama sangat. Hehhee..
Anyway, this is my first ever video tutorial, suara pun tak dengar sangat kot..so just ignore whatever entah hapa-hapa yang aku celoteh tu. Nervous tuh! Hahaha~

Photo: The result~ Please ignore my eyebrow, macam tak seragam je kiri kanan. Hahaha.. I still need to work more on eyebrow part. That's my weakness actually.


Ok that's it! I hope you guys can try this style of make-up at home before going out with your hubby or kengkawan or boyfriend ke etc. Make-up ni juga sesuai untuk pegi ke office. Selamat mencuba!

Walk and run

It's been a month since Dacchi started to walk. Now he's learning how to run. My baby, why are you growing so fast? And still, he loves papa more than mama. Maybe mama suka marah, ini tak boleh itu tak boleh, tak suka dukung dan sebagainya. If with papa, he can get anything.

It's been a month too since his first tooth came out. Tapi yang peliknya until now masih sikit je nampak. Nak cakap sebatang pun, belum tumbuh sepenuhnya lagi. This is what happen if babies learn more than 1 thing at 1 time. Belajar satu, tak habis lagi dah belajar satu lagi. But people said the later the teeth grow, the later they rotten out. Entahlah, that's what people said.

10 new things about Dacchi:
  1. Sometimes his hands and feet goyang-goyang when watching Barney.
  2. Smiles and says "Hehhhh!!" when a girl named Linda started to sing in Barney's Sing Along Episode. He likes her I guess?
  3. Likes to walk around the house.
  4. Lately he likes to go to our room because there are a lot of our stuff that he wants to kacau.
  5. Likes to bang the door.
  6. Started to learn how to climb the sofas to get mama's lappie and handphone (tapi kaki selalu kene tarik mama sebab mama tak mau Dacchi belajar panjat cepat sangat! Susah nanti!)
  7. Whenever he falls down while walking, he will stand up again and walk. (Kalau dulu terus je crawl sebab malas nak bangun)
  8. When papa purposely shout "Ehhhh!", he will growl. Shout "Ehh" again, he growls again sampai terbatok-batok.
  9. Still doesn't know how to say "mama" or "papa". Just "mamamamamam" but it doesn't mean he wants to eat or anything.
  10. His milk intakes always fluctuate between 5oz and 4oz.

A.V.A.T.A.R

Rasa nak tulis post dalam Bahasa Melayu lah pulak hari ni sebab rasa tak tau macamana nak express feeling dalam English. Aku dah tengok movie Avatar dua kali dengan Wandy. Sekali ambik yang 3D, sekali lagi biasa. Memang BEST. Gempak. Aku suka sangat cerita macamni. Jalan cerita pun berlainan sikit, biasanya manusia adalah orang yang baik nak hapuskan alien ke hape. Tapi AVATAR pulak pasal manusia yang nak menjajah tempat kaum Na'vi dari planet Pandora. Pastu pulak macam cerita The Last Samurai (kalau pernah tengok lah) yang mana orang bukan dari bangsa Jepun (mat salleh) akhirnya ingin menjadi orang Jepun, ingin menjadi Samurai. Samalah dengan AVATAR ni di mana orang bukan makhluk itu ingin menjadi sebahagian daripada kaum itu. Memang zaman sekarang, macam-macam sahaja idea jalan cerita fantasi dapat dibuat dan dipersembahkan dalam bentuk grafik.



James Cameron pengarah movie ni yang membuat movie Titanic yang hit suatu masa dahulu. Agaknya sampai sekarang memang masih ada orang yang suka tengok Titanic banyak kali. Hero dan heroin nya pula tak adalah terkenal sangat pun. Tapi aku respect dengan mat salleh, walaupun diorang adalah orang baru ke tetapi lakonan tetap kelassss gitu. Takdelah macam pelakon-pelakon baru Malaysia. Macam tak reti berlakon pun ada. Tak natural lah kata orang.
Heronya Sam Worthington, pernah berlakon dalam Terminator Salvation. Heroin pulak Zoe Saldana, muka macam pernah tengok tapi aku taktau dia pernah berlakon dalam filem apa entah. Boleh Google sendiri. Computer graphic movie ni pun memang best.

Kisah cinta Jake Sully dan Neytiri memang seronok dihayati. Duduk di planet Pandora tu pun macam best. Patutlah ramai yang kata movie ni macam ala-ala Pocahontas sebab lebih kepada alam semulajadi. Terasa macam nak tinggal kat situ je. Tenang dan aman damai. Pastu boleh menunggang Ikran. Ataupun kalau terrer macam Jake Sully bolehlah menunggang Toruk dan digelar Toruk Macto (penunggang Toruk). Lepas tu rambut panjang tocang boleh disambungkan dengan semua haiwan sebab haiwan pun ada satu rambut panjang, kira jadi macam connector lah, macam USB port je. Bila dah sambung, boleh berhubung dengan haiwan secara psikik. Bestlah macamtu. Kalau yang dah menonton movie ni barulah faham apa yang aku ceritakan. Apapun dua ibu jari diangkat (Two thumbs up) untuk movie ni. Wajib tonton 10 kali di wayang. Puas hati. Sekian. Oh lupa nak cakap, Jake Sully sangat cool (aku taktau nak translate dalam Bahasa Melayu pulak) apabila dalam bentuk badan kaum Na'vi.

Makeup-aholics!


Apart from entertained Dacchi, I spent most of my time today taking photos of my make-up collections and edited them in Photoshop. Here you go~


These are my first ever eye-shadow collections. I started using proper make-up when I was working with AirAsia as a cabin crew. In my days at UTM, I've put on make-up but really taktahu macamana nak pakai make-up, lantak sajalah letak eyeshadow and lipstick je. So, on the first day of my cabin crew training, I was so ashamed of myself sebab tatau pakai make-up. Memang malu sungguh coz all of my other batch mates memang cantik belaka, they really knows how to put on make-up, macam model, siap rambut pun begitu cantik sekali, curls and stuff. Aku pulak dengan rambut sempoi dan mekap entah hapa-hapa. Then I started to learn bit by bit on how to put on proper make-up with other cabin crew while working. My first MAC product I bought were a compact powder and a lipstick.


These are my latest lipstick, gloss, blusher and foundation collections. Most of my stuff are from MAC. I really love MAC brand, especially their lipsticks and eye shadows. Memang best dan tahan lama. I still need to add up my blusher collections. Macam tak cukup je. Gloss pun banyak dah nak habis.. kene tunggu MAS Golden Boutique punye sale! Pastu beli banyak gloss..


Ni plak aku punye eye shadow and lipstick collections. I collected them since dulu kala. Hahaha.. okay, since I started working in Air Asia. Lots of different brand but most of my color shades are natural. Tak cukup terang for bridal make-up. Need more vibrant and bright colors. Lately I like to use MAC pigment for eye-shadow. Pigment color stands out more than powder eye shadow, but don't forget to apply eye shadow base cream first before putting on pigments because it will emphasize the richness of the pigment's color and stays.


At first, I collected single MAC eye shadow and I had 7 colors. Then my friend who is a MAC make-up artist and also an ex-Air Asia cabin crew, suggested me to buy 15 colors empty eye shadow pallete and put all single eye-shadow inside it. So I added another 3 pieces to make a total of 10 eye-shadows. Hmm..still need to add 5 pieces more to complete the pallete.. 5 pieces will cost me almost RM300~ adeiiii...




Owh I'm sooo in love with my brushes!! Can't live without them! Huhu~ Until now, I've collected 17 brushes! Phewww banyak la pulak rupanya...every single one has its own usage. My first brush collections were from Body Shop. Then I replaced all Body Shop brushes with MAC's. I sold some of my old Body Shop brushes to Kartina (die ni pun gila make-up!). I still have 1 Bobbi Brown Blusher brush and 2 Stage brushes (eyebrow and fan brush). Soon I will replace them with MAC's!


You must always keep your brushes clean. Tapi takdela selalu sangat aku cuci brushes. Dalam sebulan 2 kali je kot...hahahha...Using MAC Brush Cleanser aku cuci brushes pastu cuci pulak with warm water until the colors on the brushes are gone. Kalau everytime pakai Brush Cleanser tu taktahan beb, kejap je habis. Mahal pulak tu. So pepandailah jimat. =p
P/s Mesti korang tertanya2 brush ape yang kaler silver tu (the most right), it's the Lip Brush. Die ade penutupnya. Kalau buka baru nampak brushnye.


This is where I keep all my make-up stuff... dari beg kecik sampailah ke trolley bag aku beli.. I have lots and lots of make-up bag, big and small...sebab in the end mesti tak muat so had to buy a new bigger one.. The latest make-up bag is that trolley bag, I got it from Sg. Wang at RM200. So far muatla, tapi soon or later gerenti tak muat jugak nanti... Ada ke make-up bag yang lagiii besar??????


Taraaaa! This is what it looks like inside of my trolley bag:


Don't worry, you don't need all this just to make you know how to make-up. You just need to know basic things and have a basic stuff to get a perfect makeover. Will post tutorials in my future writings. =p

MAC, Kryolan?

Happy New Year 2010! This is my first post in the year of 2010. It's been quite busy lately. Macam-macam je aku buat... I spent my new year day at AzzaLynn Bridal shop, the place where I took my first bridal make-up class. The two make-up artists were Azza and Kak Lynn, they are sisters and doing the mak andam job as a part time since they are still working.

It was 2 days make-up class. First, Kak Lynn taught us what are the important products that make-up artists usually use for bridal make-up. And then, Azza showed us step by step how to put on make-up to the bride. There were 6 students and we got to choose partner among us and put on make-up on each other. The next day was the practical day, we need to bring our own model and Carol Ubong was my model. =P

I still need a lot of practice, yelaaa since aku hanya tau mekap diri sendiri je.. and also basic personal make-up, bukannya bridal make-up. I'm going to attend other classes too, boleh tengok make-up artist lain buat kerja and also get to practice to put on make-up on different people.

Basic make-up step by step (lain kali aku letak gambar pula)
1. Cleanse your face.
2. Put some moisturiser on your face.
3. Put concealer (liquid or stick) on your eye bag, eyelids and areas that have benda-benda yang nak ditutup =P, using brush or sponge (but I always use my finger on liquid concealer, lebih meresap..kot?)
4. Use sponge to put on foundation (liquid or stick) all over your face, just dab on the area that already have concealer.
5. Use powder puff to put on loose powder to your face. Sapukan dengan rata.
6. Draw your eyebrow using brown liner and blend it nicely using brow brush.
7. Curl your eyelashes.
8. If you have eyeshadow base, put it first on your eyelids until below eyebrow. If you don't have it, just put highlighter (use bright eyeshadow eg. white or cream color).
9. Using eyeshadow brush, put light color eyeshadow eg. pink, light green, gold, light blue on your eyelids (just atas kelopak biji mata tu, tak perlu sampai eyebrow)
10. Blend it nicely.
11. Put darker color eyeshadow eg. black or dark blue etc. kat hujung kelopak mata. blend it nicely.
12. Line your eyelids and below your eyes with black eye liner.
13. Put on mascara on your lashes.
14. Use blusher brush, put on pink color blush to your cheek. blend it nicely.
15. Use natural color lipstick and put on your lips, add some lipgloss.
16. Done! (Ade ape-ape aku lupe ke?)

Okla, lain kali aku letak gambar pula. So far I still don't have time nak buat lesson step by step siap ambik gambar satu-satu...biasalah dah ada anak memang tak ada masanye... hehehe~
