IBB MUC January 2015 "Exotic Japan" Underneath Your Skin #Smartlook

Hello, folks! :D

Here I am back again with another makeup challenge by Indonesian Beauty Blogger x CamJoe
So,who's CamJoe? She's a singer and her real name is Camellia Jonathan and yes, Underneath Your Skin is her latest song, which featuring Hatsune Miku! Cool right. The song has lots of electronic effects and really screams out technology in my ear. LOL.

Anyhow, IBB already held the MUC in November and December with different theme. This time the theme is Exotic Japan.

So the look is supposed to inspired from the song. So kinda like, technology x exotic..... Kinda contrast, eh? But Japan indeed is a country combining nature (how beautiful the view there) and tech (not to mention the virtual singer, Miku...).I saw CJ in the banner the first thing that came to my mind is a festival. Those in mangas where the girls dressed in yukata and hang out around the shrine (lol! read too much manga). But the word Exotic and Japan is definitely geisha. So I kinda combining a natural x geisha look and here it is.

*cough*that chubby round face argh!
No if you think I choose a wrong shade of my face makeup. I just add a layer of white shimmering powder on my face after using foundie. I didn't use it till the neck though...  (probably the biggest mistake) I still want to keep that geisha look by long and upward eyeliner.

I used kinda-burgundy-shade eyeliner and extended downwards under the eye for more traditional look. I also used blush but its under the 'apple of the cheeks' (or whatever) where we supposed to put our bronzer for shading.

I don't want to go over fabulous by using thick eyelashes so I only wear accent one and mascara

Red lips is definitely on the list. I actually made it kinda gradient but well the camera didn't caught it! And about the hair, flowers are great on the head! Muahahaha! Japanese girls always use flower hair pins on their head when then wear yukata, no? I only make like a half-done-bun. Because of my haircut is not possible to have a proper bun,,,
And my current hair is ombre, because I bleached my tail, and it's been 5 months since I'd done full head dyeing so the roots are growinggg~

I always try to spare some time for this one aside that the choir activity has gone super mad. Thankfully I finally finished this post. LOL! Anyhow I'll be going to Bandung for 11 days, yes, eleven, for the choir competition so I'll be absent till I get home by 5 February.

Wish me luck and see you guys in the next post! :D

Review - Beyond Apple Mint Fresh Cleansing Water

Hello, folks! :D

Meet me again by new year.
Let's start this year with a review.

Lately I really consider the 'cleanliness' of my face because I use makeup almost everyday, and it's like more than 12 hours (if it's not holiday) and I know how sometimes the makeup was not cleaned completely. It rarely happens to me though, that the foundation was 'left' on the cotton when I use toner. I guess my facial wash cleans well? Lol.

Actually, in my house we've got 2 cleansing cream and 1 face wash that supposedly cleans super well (all of them are branded products) but the fact is that they don't remove the makeup completely. Aside from that, what I know, cleansing water is more suitable for those with oily/combination skin.

I got this from my sister, she bought it in Korea. I really love their blush and it's not that very mainstream brand and I'm totally sold to the line. This Apple Mint line from Beyond is meant for pore so it's meant to clean deep to the pores.

The design is cute, but I guess the dove and transparent covering makes is hard to read the info at the back. But I don't mindddd~
Information at the back. Good thing is that they put some info in English. Plus point!

So supposedly you don't need to wash with other cleansing products but yeah I'm one stone-headed person so I still use my face wash after using this.

I first find how clean this product cleans is when I took out my used-up IOPE Cushion and squish it by my palm. (Le me trying to do something stupid or was in stupid mode I really don't remember why I did that :| )
Then actually a little of it got into the lines in my palm.
I tried to clean it with my face wash, not working. With the branded fash wash, not working either. With the branded cleansing cream, still not working! :v then I remembered  that I just got this so I tried and yes! It cleans it! Totally! That is when I'm super amazed with this product.

It comes by the pump exactly like EH's Wonder Pore Freshener. I really like this kind of pump that I don't need to make a fuss with pouring and putting the products back to my makeup rack. LOL! (Lazy me)

It doesn't make my skin dry, no stinging feeling, and really feels good on my skin. It smells so good too! Smells super fresh that I really like it!

Design. 5 stars. Cute! but not over-girly cute.
Scent. 5 stars. Fresh, not so sweet, kinda fruity.
Result. 5 stars! My HG cleanser already! <3
Availability. 1 star... Yeah the problem with this product is that I can hardly get it.

I guess that's all!
See you guys in the next post! :D

With Love,
