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.

    New Accessories from LeVonne!

    Hi hi!

    In the month of November, I received several new pieces from LeVonne, and I am absolutely loving the pair of spikey stretchy bracelets that came along in the package!  They are dramatic and pretty wicked, and on the times that I wore them out, I never fail to get questions about these bracelets.  They aren't too tight, and are pretty versatile - I think they go with most outfits, you can wear them with a dress or if you are wearing something casual, plain and these bracelets add a certain kick to the overall outfit. 

    But there are other goodies which I would like to share with you too: 

    Here we have the Skull Bangle - USD9  

    which I have matched with the hamsa bracelet also available from LeVonne. 

    I personally recommend the Skull Bangle if your wrist runs smaller.. it took me a bit of a struggle to put on, so I got my younger sis to model it for me.  I really love the tiny skulls on the bangle.. and I wish it comes with a proper clasp which I could open and fasten easily.  It also comes in silver. 

    And here, we have the Bow Crystal necklace USD9.90 (currently sold out at the store) 

    This is a delicate piece, very feminine, and has adjustable clasp.  I love that the bow is fixed on the chain, so you don't end up with the bow shifting sideways throughout the course of wearing it.   It is super cute, and adds a nice touch to your outfit. 

    here's another look at the bow necklace and the skull bangle 

    The skull cuff with the spike bracelets (shown in silver, and black tin) USD7.00

    and here we have Heart to Heart Crystal Bracelet (silver) USD13 

    A pair of interlinking hearts, not personally my type (too girly!) , but I think it is very feminine just like the bow necklace.  Here, I match it with a charm bracelet. 

    and lastly, we have this trio of crystal silver rings USD8.00 each,  I like to wear them stacked.   They come in two sizes, in 6 and 7. 

    LeVonne is a Singapore based fashion accessories store, and they are always expanding their range of products.  Right now, you can also enjoy free registrered international shipping.  Christmas is right round the corner, and if you are looking into buying presents for your friends, I think you should check out what LeVonne has to offer.   I am also working out a possible giveaway for everyone, looking forward to hosting that as soon as details are finalised!  Stay tuned!

    Hope this entry has been helpful, and thank you for looking!
