IFB Project #16: Morning Makeup Routine

Hey everyone, I know I haven't really updated my blog in quite sometime. Just finally got free : ( Its been hectic.. Anyways I decided to go for the IFB Project #16 which is my daily make up routine! I'd love to share it :)
So for foundation I used to use MAC - Studio fix but these days I use L'Oreal True Match foundation! which is amazing and has great coverage! Most of my friend's use it as well! After working on my foundation I dab on some Mac powder :) so the foundation stays on place! Plus the foundation isn't that heavy so its fine : )
After working on my foundation, I have this gorgeous coffee colored eyeshadow from Revlon : ) They are amazing for an everyday look and last long so its fine.  Sometimes I get in a mood for light pink tint and this gorgeous eyeshadow I bought from L'Oreal I think they've discontinued it here but it WOW. Its a bit sparkly but I love it! As long as you apply the right amount and don't over do it , it'll be just fine. Make sure to use a blending brush! Remember LESS IS MORE! 

 After I'm done with the shadow I work my way through a nice winged liner on my top eye lid. Dont really like adding much on the bottom. I'd suggest to use an angled brush if you're a starter and don't really know how to work your way through with a gel liner. After working on this I got my FAVORITE MASCARA! ITS PRACTICALLY THE BEST ONE I'VE USED SO FAR! Its been awarded as the best mascara through Vogue Beauty awards. Its called Voluminous Million Lashes by L'Oreal.
After working your way through the eyelashes I apply this all mineral blush by body shop.
And top it off by a nude lipstick by Maybelline, this vibrant red shade from L'Oreal called Sensual Grenade. Or sometimes I just got for a this lipgloss from Body Shop called Cherry Glimmer. Do check it out! Anyways I hope you all enjoy this post! 
(PS . yes I know I used way too many L'Oreal products but I love em')

Trend: Knotted up!

So I passed by this new trend on Knotted Button Down shirts which had been sported by celebrities like Shenae Grimes, Annalyne McCord and Minka Kelly. They seemed to have pulled it of really well! I think it looks so comfy and yet so chic!

I love this look by Annalyne McCord. She's sporting the perfect NewYork look while Minka Kelly is wearing a great bohemian skirt for a classically California look. Also I love Annalyne McCord's nailpaint color! Neon's the way to go!

Red Carpet love - MTV Movie awards 2011!

There were so many disasters at the MTV Movie awards this year like Jessica Szohr and Amanda Bynes. BUT I would cover the best of this year and what I've loved through the night! Also this time we've got such chic style with a little bit of edge!
Blake Lively in Michael Kors. Love the stacks of bangles and the color blocking however I don't think the purple suede Louboutins work for me.

Trend: Go wild this summer!

A new summer 2011 trend is tribal prints. It's very in this season and I'm seeing it everywhere, however we must never ever wear tribal head to toe as it could become well ... a fashion disaster. 
We could always pair it off with a classic peice like a little black dress with these bangles or a metallic handbang. You can always just add a basic color and then compliment it with tribal print accessory.

Trend: Pure White!

This year Spring/Summer the themes seem to be all about purity! White is just Clear-Cut, Vivid, Fresh and Divine. Even though most of us are already prepared for the neutral beige colors but we must admit white is the new beige! :) As for when wearing white you should acessorize it with metallic jewellery or add some bright or pastel colors.

MFV loves ... Oxford shoes!

So me and my friend Shaima met a few days back and we fell in love with these Oxford shoes from Forever 21. They aren't very feminine or girly BUT these look so well heeled! They'll go perfectly when your just hanging out with your girlies at the mall or the beach and top it off with denim shorts and a casual shirt.

Get the look: Michelle Trachtenberg

Here's a new segment I decided to do showing how to get styling looks celebrities have showed off but at a more affordable level.
I start off with this edgy look by Michelle Trachtenberg.
 Now the colors to this outfit aren't very in this season . BUT tribal prints are definately in... So I came up with a look which would show a similar style but in different colors.

Style of the week: Blake Lively

I absolutely love this dress which Blake Lively wore to the Chanel dinner :) and she acessorised it really well :). The Emerald earings are all what we needed to make her look perfect .

Trend: Hello Two-tone Pants!

We were just getting used to the new summer trend on bright colored trousers and the return of flare jeans (See Marc Jacobs , Derek Lam , Fendi) and now the new Fall trend is the 2 tone pants. Its supposed to make our legs look slimmer.. According to the designer - Prabal Gurung. The main trick is the curve seam. (Picture from

Trend: The 60's dress

So summer's on and we got a whole lot of different new trends popping up.
This year, one of the trends that I loved was the whole 60's dress look. Its very feminine and chic. 
Something very lady-like.
The various dress styles to the 60's look would be the fullskirts which is very 60's housewife and then the granny skirt [its sort of like the younger generations take on it]. When one accessorises the 60's look they should go for something like the kitten heels and the bold red lipstick which is very much hyped these days. You could also go for Cats-eye glasses from Chanel or the wide waist clinching belts and gloves.
