Tutorial: Katy Perry Inspired Look (California Gurls Music Video)

Hey guys,

Today I am bringing you a fun, candy coloured look inspired by an outfit that Katy Perry wears in her video for California Gurls. This look was requested so I how that you like it, let me know below! If you guys have another other requests please leave them in the comments below because this was really fun to do and I want to do things that you guys would like to see!

Here is the picture I based my look on:

Onto the look:


Colours you will need to recreate this look:
-  Matte White
- Matte Neon Pink
- Deep Metallic Fuchsia
- Matte Grape
- Metallic Cobalt Blue

- White Shadow Base
- White Eyeliner
- Black Eyeliner
- Black Liquid Liner
- Mascara
- Clear Mascara

Blend a matte white shadow base (NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk) all over lid up to brow.

With a flat shader brush, pick up a matte white shadow, (Sleek Ultra Mattes V2 - Pillow Talk), apply to inner corner of the lid and blend towards the center of the lid.

On another shader brush, pick up a matte neon pink (Sleek Acid Palette, Bottow Row, 3rd Shade in), and blend onto remaining portion of lid and into the crease (to help transition next shade).

On a rounded pencil brush take a deep metallic fuchsia shade (Sleek Acid Palette, First Row, First Shade), and place it in the crease and blend upwards, also blend it into the matte neon pink shade. Bring it about 3/4 of the way towards your nose.

On a small fluffy brush, pick up a matte grape shade (Sleek Acid Palette, Bottom Row, First Shade), and apply it onto where the fuchsia shade ends. Start at the outer edge and blend towards the nose, following the shape of the shadow.

On an accent brush, take a metallic cobalt blue shade (Sleek Acid Palette, Top Row, Fifth Shadow), and smudge it along bottom lash line from the centre all the way up and extend the line to create an eyeliner look.

Apply  a thin line of black liquid liner (NYX Collection Noir Liquid Black Liner) and wing it out slightly to meet the blue shade.

Apply a black pencil liner to tightline (Avon SuperShock Gel Eyeliner Pencil) and a white eyeliner (LA Girl) to the waterline.

Curl lashes and generously apply mascara (essence 2-in-1 Mascara).

Apply clear mascara to bottom lashes.


Swatches of Sleek Acid Palette and Sleek Ultra Mattes V2 Palette as mentioned.

Treat Yourself This Valentines Day ~ Etude House Etoinette Special Kit

It's Valentines Day, you sit down, snuggle up in bed. Pick up the remote and push play. Your favourite Disney Princess movie is on. You watch the story unfold and dream and hope that one day your Prince Charming will come and sweep you off your feet, that one day YOU will be the Princess.

It may not happen tomorrow or the next day, or even the next year but you can transform into a Princess this Valentines Day with one very Special Kit.

The Special Kit contains 4 products:
  • Etoinette Heart Blusher in PK001 Pink Petal Kiss (12g / 0.42 oz)
  • Etoinette Crystal Shine Lips in PPK02 Dewy Petal Kiss (3.4g / 0.11 oz)
  • Etoinette Rose Brush
  • Etoinette Princess Mirror

Etoinette Heart Blusher in Pink Petal Kiss

The blusher contains 10 baked heart-shaped blusher pearls that when swirled together create a soft pink flush that gives your cheeks a healthy, radiant glow.

You get 3 light champagne pink hearts, 3 light baby pink hearts and 4 deep rose pink hearts.  All three shades are nicely pigmented, the latter of the 3 is the most pigmented and the true colour of the blush when it is on the cheeks, the other two shades just add highlight.

 All three shades are shimmery with fine glitter particles and create a nice flush of colour on the cheeks. They leave a frosty finish. Also they smell delicately of rose. The powder puff included is soft and although I wouldn't use this to put on the blush, it is a good idea to keep it in the pot with the hearts so that they don't move around too much since they are slightly crumbly.

The packaging is made of thick plastic and the lid just screws off. Don't you think this would look so beautiful on a vanity?!

Etoinette Crystal Shine Lips in Dewy Petal Kiss

Wouldn't this be so adorable in your clutch bag?

Dewy Petal Kiss is a raspberry shade with silver glitter particles and a jelly finish. It also contains a delicate rose scent. Although the product does contain glitter, once on the lips it doesn't feel gritty, it has the feel of a lip balm and is very comfortable and easy to wear. (I love when lip products have something etched into the product, this has an E for Etoinette!)

It wore nicely, it didn't dry down and become uncomfortable like thicker lipstick formula's sometimes do. It just absorbed into the lips, leaving them feeling moisturised and almost staining the lips in the process.

With Flash
Natural Daylight

Etoinette Rose Brush

This rose shaped kabuki brush is made up of soft natural hairs, that have been dyed pink at the tips and shaped to look like a flower.

The hairs are very soft and quite dense so you wouldn't have to worry about picking up too much powder. The only problem I have with it is that it shed a bit, but it may just need to be washed.

Etoinette Princess Mirror


The mirror is very compact, not to big for a clutch bag, not to small so you can't see your whole face. It is lightweight (since it is made of plastic) and you can fold the mirror so it stands up by itself! It is very cute and there are details on every side of the products so from every angle, it looks beautiful.

It's the small intricate details in this kit that make it so special and sweet. 


The Etoinette Special Kit by Etude House retails for S$76.90.  If you are interested in buying the products separately (or different colours) then the Heart Blusher retails for S$42.90, the Rose Brush for S$18.90 and the Crystal Shine Lips for S$16.90.

Bellabox Singapore: February 2013 ~ The Luuuuurve Month!

Firstly I want to wish everybody a prosperous New Year! I hope everybody is having a lovely time with their families.

Secondly, February brings with it Valentine's Day, making it the month of luuuurve (of for us single people a month of stuffing our faces with chocolate and watching Bridget Jones Diary on repeat!)

1. Adonis Herbal Peel Gel

"With seven botanical ingredients, the Adonis Herbal Peel Gel exfoliates the skin gently to remove dead skin cells, revealing a brighter and smoother skin tone after use."

80mL = S$58

First Impressions
Smells nice, like chamomile. Seemed to remove the dead skin on my hand well.

2. Lanvin Marry Me! 

"The Lanvin Marry me was created with the intention to suggest the strong bond that women have with their perfume. With fruity top notes of Bitter Orange, Freesia and Peach, the Lanvin Marry me is a playful marriage of feminine and flirty. Available at all major departmental stores."

30mL = S476
50mL = S$108
75mL = S$136
First Impressions
I love this fragrance! It smells like a Mary Kate and Ashley perfume I had when I was a kid, brings back such great memories :)          (too bad the price tag is reaaally high!)

3.  NUXE Rose Comforting Cleansing Milk

"The Nuxe Rose Comforting Cleansing Milk cleanses and removes makeup gently while protecting the skin from dryness with its unique formula containing Cotton Oil derivative, Coconut Oil, Macadamia Oil, Damascena Rose Petal Floral Water and Allantoin. Suitable for Normal to Dry-Sensitive skin."

200mL = S$38

First Impressions
Smells lightly of rose, I never used the other Nuxe products that I got in a previous box so I never tried them out but I'm excited to try this. I think it would be a good product to try with a Clarisonic.

4. MeMeMe Eye Line Pencil

"Whether you are going for the classic cat-eye or dramatic smokey eye, the MeMeMe Eye Line Pencil glides on perfectly with precision and definition. Its extra smooth formulation allows for smooth application without tugging the delicate eye area."


First Impressions
Very soft and creamy, seems to glide easily like it claims too. You always need black eyeliners right!?

5. Institut Du Karite Extra Gentle Body Milk

"Highly valued for its rich moisturising properties, the Shea butter in the IdK EGBM is able to protect and nourish skin against environmental damage. Delicately scented, the EGBM also provides essential vitamins for skin revitalisation and elasticity and is suitable for all skin types."

250mL for S$33

First Impressions
Thin consistency and smells like a baby! Non-greasy and quickly absorbed. You can always use lotion!

Thanks for stopping by!

Review, Swatches and a Look: Sleek i-Divine Palette in Ultra Matte V2

Finishes: All matte (duh!)

If you guys saw my previous post, I brought the Sleek Acid Palette, I also purchased the Sleek Ultra Mattes V2 at the same time. I've been searching for a pigmented neutral matte palette for a while now and this one looked interesting.

I purchased mine from for S$18.50 for 12, 1.1g eyeshadows.

You can also purchase Sleek products from:

ORBIT:  Blue/Green                                            INK: Inky Blue

HIGHNESS: Deep Violet                                         NOIR: Charcoal

DUNE: Sand                                                   PILLOW TALK: White

THUNDER: Slate Grey                                         MAPLE:  Rust

FLESH: Warm Beige                                         PAPER BAG: Chocolate Brown

VILLAN: Ox Blood                                   FERN: Bottle Green

I swatched these shadows over NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk (matte white). They are all very soft and creamy, easy to blend. I really enjoy using Dune as a transition colour from the crease to the browbone. I wouldn't say that there isn't a dud in the bunch!

Here is a look I created with the shadows, if you would like to see a tutorial, leave a comment and I will do it!

If you guys have any requests of blogposts or videos you would like me to do, then please comment below, I'm looking for some inspiration!
