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: A Party Look with Lancome [and a mini giveaway]

    Hi hi!

    I did a quick look featuring the Lancome eyeshadows which I mentioned in the previous entry.  The eyelook is quite the usual, I always go for a defined smokey look most of the time, playing with the texture and color placement.  I also like to go for brighter lipcolors these days, to look more awake somewhat. 

    The Liner Plume is extremely easy to use, I love the long brush (to reach into the inner corners of the eyes perfectly) and while it didn't swatch the most jet-black, when applied on the eyes, it is super black and intense, and it dries quickly on the eyelids too.  

    Here's what I did on the eyes: 

    1. Applied P 102 Sable Enchante on the browbone.

    2. Applied P 204 Perle Ambree on the lids and crease.

    3. Intensify the look by adding S 207 Fil D'argent on the lids. 

    * the eyeshadows are very soft, and easy to work with.  They remind of the Burberry eyeshadows (which are a tad creamier), but in terms of the colors and payoff, very similar. 

    4. Line upper eyelids with Liner Plume 01 Noir. 

    5. Mascara on lower eyelids with Hypnose Dolleyes mascara. 

    * the overall color is darker in real life than these pictures show * 

    On the rest of the face - all Lancome, as you can see. 

    Face - Pro Base primer, Teint Miracle liquid foundation, Teint Miracle loose powder -- foundation review here

    Cheeks & bronzer - Blush Subtil palette in Nectar Lace --- feature entry here

    Lips - Absolu Mat Cashmere 300  --- feature entry here

    Eyes - NARS Primer, P 102, P204, S 207 and liner plume Noir (featured here) , Doll Eyes mascara (featured here)

    And now for a little giveaway, I had purchased this set of Lancome products at the JPO during my recent trip there.  It contains

    1. Full sized Lancome Hynose Doll eyes mascara 01 So Black

    2. Mini Crayon Kohl Noir 

    3. Mini Rouge in Love 322 Coral in Love

    To win this set, leave a comment below with your name/email, and answer a simple question, and I will contact the winner before I go off for my holiday.   It is open internationally. 
    Closing date: 08 Dec 2012

    What I like about this very Lancome LOTD : I like that you used a bright pink shade for your lip color. A lot of people esp in SIngapore are afraid of bright/dark colours and you showed how beautiful it can actually look! I'm a huge fan of bright pinks!

    What I like about this very Lancome LOTD:
    I like how the eyeshadow on your eyes lid blended. It blended nicely , no sharp edge in between two different tone of eyeshadow. Then you skillfully draw the eyeline that closed to the root of the eyelashes, make it looks like natural and yet able to add the fuller effect of the eyelashes. The lips colour stand out of the every things. Overall, i think this Lancome LOTD is subtle, simple, daily-wearable yet gorgeous enough when it comes to closed observation.

    What I like about this very Lancome LOTD: I really like how you've managed to draw attention to both your eyes and lips at the same time, while achieving a very balanced and pretty look (this isn't always easy!) The pink lips are fun, refreshing and sultry at the same time. This look is would be perfect for christmas and new year's eve parties later in the year, and would be sooo great with neutral-toned or all-black outfits.
