FAQ & DISCLAIMER

About Me

My name is Sophia, and I am in my early 30s. I am from Singapore and I am the sole writer of this blog.

About this Blog

I started this blog in 2006, I like to use a wide range of brands though I seem to have a growing preference for higher-end brands in recent years. I also like to share interesting things I have come across about makeup and beauty.

Currently The Makeup Blogette receives 39,000 unique views monthly or 2,238,932 views and counting.

My Makeup Style

I like classic looks (neutral tones on eyes, anything goes for lips & cheeks), though occasionally I try out dramatic/ statement looks.  I believe that a flawless base is the key to achieving great makeup looks.  I also believe that if you don't have great skin to start with, fake it with a good foundation routine, and even greater skincare.  I am currently loving Clarins & Lancome skincare products, and Vichy NormaDerm for tackling with breakouts.

What Cameras do I use?

Most of the pictures you see in post 2010 entries are taken with my Canon G-11.  Previously I was using Canon Ixus 80.  I do post some pictures which are taken with my iphone4 which I will state in that particular entry.  I have stopped watermarking my pictures as of 2011, because I think watermarks are ugly in general, and does not prevent people from stealing my pictures if they wish to.  I just take it as a compliment that my pictures are even worth stealing in the first place. I might look into getting a Canon EOS next year, not just for blogging purposes, but I also like photography in general.

My Favourite Makeup Brand(s)

It is hard to name just one, but I like NARS, Chanel, Illamasqua and the ocasional Guerlain, Dior & Urban Decay item.  I own quite a stash of MAC items, but recently I have stopped catching up with their collections, and I much prefer to splurge on a few really outstanding items.

Where to find me

Twitter (link button above!)  Email (stated above!)  Instagram (makeup_blogette)

I have no official Facebook fan page, and currently have no intention to start one at all.  The Makeup Blogette remains my personal hobby and property, so as such, I don't believe in having a Facebook fanpage for it.

Final Disclaimer

I bought/ paid for all of the products mentioned in this blog. I am not affliated to any company. If certain products are sent to me for review purposes, I will say so and express my honest opinions about them. In any case, I will only review and showcase the products which I have personally tried and tested, and enjoy using. I do not get paid to review anything.

No ads, no paid links etc please.  I am in charge of all content and pictures here.

I am not a makeup artist, nor do I have any professional training in makeup.

    LOTD: New Shu Uemura Palette & Tom Ford Lipstick

    I used all the colors in my new Shu Uemura palette for a soft coppery eyelook, it looks a little pinkish too.  I really LOVE the white/ ivory highlight color!  It is so smooth, and is not too shimmery but yet it is... if you know what I mean.  :o  The soft copper color is a little glittery, but I used an eyeshadow base, so the color still went on smoothly and it was also easy to blend out.

    I didn't swatch the blush in my haul entry, because it is so pale and matte but you can see how it still turns up as a pop of color on my cheeks.  And I can be 'generous' in the application of the blush and not have to worry about looking like a clown.  The powder is also super finely milled, and it sits nicely on my cheeks.

    Close up of the eyelook

    I applied the highlight color all over my lids from the browbone to the crease.  Then I applied the coppery color from crease to my lids.

    I used TOM FORD lipstick in Blush Nude today.

    The color in this next picture appears very true, not the yellowish tinge it looked like in my haul entry.

    The texture of the lipstick is like MAC Amplified lipsticks, or YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks, slightly thick, creamy and very smooth.  It lasted a good 3 hours on me with minor sweet chewing and drinking action.  Love re-applying it though.  :)

    And then with Dior Aurora bronzer, which I applied under my 'cheekbones' [I am using the word to signify the position, not that I have any defined cheekbones hahaha] and also a bit on the temples of my forehead.

    A silly closed-eye pic of me to show off the eye shadow color, and hopefully the overall cheek color.

    All products used:

    base - Clarins Beauty Flash Balm, EA Ceramide Foundation, Lancome Dual Finish Powder

    concealer - Shu Uemura Pro Gel Cealer

    cheeks - Shu Uemura M Soft Pink 327

    eyes - UDPP, P White 910, ME Soft Copper, MUFE Aqua Liner #12

    lower lids - MAC Orpheus liner, Clinique Lower Lash Mascara

    lips - TOM FORD Lipstick Blush Nude

    Also played around this this feathery clip in my hair today.

    That's all, and thanks for looking!

    That lipstick is such a gorgeous shade, though it vaguely reminds me of Viva Glam Gaga II but I'm sure it's not the same. Can't ever have too many nudes! And copper is a lovely shade against your skintone.
