There’s a reason why I don’t vlog. I’m horribly awkward in front of the camera (did you watch Project Alpha? Cos I didn’t wtf) and I lose my train of thought a lot and stutter wtf dunno how people like Xiaxue and Bongqiuqiu do their Click Network shows man.
So when Maybelline approached me to do a makeup tutorial for them, I was like
But then they said they’d prepare everything and all I had to do was show up!
So I thought it would be fun…. I mean I don’t think I have to talk and since its not a TV show, I can retake as many times as I want.
So a few weekends ago I went and did it.
Here’s the starting of it – totally no makeup besides eyebrows.
Turned out quite fun! Because we needed to focus on the makeup, the stylist pulled my hair back and used water to slick it down wtf
The tutorial is all the way from how to apply foundation to putting lipstick as a finishing touch.
But the star product was Maybelline’s new mascara, Falsies!
Me trying out Falsies!
Entire crew who worked on the video! Thanks everyone!
Maybelline Falsies Volume Express mascara.
Called Falsies cos duh you can use it to replace false lashes. For more info, go to their Facebook page.
Actually most of the time I don’t use mascara in my makeup routine.
While my lashes are long, they’re also really fine (as is the hair on my head fml) and it’s tough to find a mascara that gives as much oomph and volume as a pair of fake lashes.
So I usually just slap on fake lashes, and if I use mascara at all, it’s for my bottom lashes.
But sometimes I do need mascara! Like when I have to look nice for an important meeting but I can’t wear fake lashes cos it’s a bit overkill and I don’t want clients to think I’m going clubbing after this wtf. Or that I’m too obsessed with how I look and will have no time to do work for them.
Please. Don’t bluff there are loads of stereotypes out there about girls who wear makeup. For example, one of my readers actually thinks there’s a possibility that because I take care of my face and hair I will abandon my kids’ hygiene next time. -________-
So. Need mascara sometimes. But haven’t found effective mascara that can give the volume and length that fake lashes can.
I told a Maybelline rep about it that’s why she asked me to try Falsies.
So try lo!
What I like about it is that I find the mascara comes off darker than other ones I’ve tried. It creates a bigger contrast around my eyes and makes it look like I actually took effort with my makeup
(cos other mascaras I tried are so shit that sometimes it looks like I didn’t even wear mascara)
The more coats you apply the darker and er bushier it becomes too.
Most people prefer subtle makeup (as opposed to me I guess wtf) so this mascara is quite perfect for making your eyes pop yet not being too over the top J
Another view. Contrasted the picture so you can see clearer.
All ready to go!
Oh ya here’s the finished product. I look extremely awkward but I’m old and past caring.
