REVIEW
1. BB Cream
*Check my review about ETUDE HOUSE Precious Mineral Bright Fit BB Cream SPF 30 PA++ bbcream (shade W13) and also Beauty Tips about bbcream here http://stellamerylpeachlover.blogspot.com/2013/01/pygmalionland-give-away-2013-publish-in_31.html

2. Compact Powder
* I use compact powder from Revlon. Mine is actually 2 IN 1 compact powder, its already contain foundation, but i still use bbcream before to get the best make up result. 
I just apply this compact powder in very thin layer using powder brush, and only in certain area. Certain are that i mean are top part of my forehead( i don't aply at the bottom part because it will be the place for highlighter), and cheek ( exclude blush on n highlighter area). 
I apply it that way because what i want from using compact powder is just to make sure dirt cannot stick at my face after i apply my bbcream, i don't need any coverage because my bbcream already do that work very well ^^
 
* TIPS:
- Use your compact powder in thin layer like what i always do.
Compact powder function is not to give you coverage. Although if you use it at certain amount, you will find some area will be cover by your compact powder, but believe me it will look weird at your face. 
If you want coverage, use foundation or bbcream (i more recommend to use bbcream) before using your compact powder. 
- Compact powder is include in the fragile make up group, it easy to break out if it by accident it fall. So, make sure you have good make up box. I prefer high quality n thick pouch - with average size (mine is 18x9 cm), because it will be easier to bring it along inside your bag, but it still give good protection to your make up products.

3. Mask
* TIPS :
- The best time to use your mask is while you have free time to relax
I found out that even with the same mask, the one you use while you are relax will give better result compare to the one you use while you are doing other job.
- If you use a sachet - one time used mask, after you take the paper mask out, there will still some proper amount of liquid inside right? don't put it in your trash can, but save it at the refrigerator while you are wearing your paper mask. After you finish use your paper mask, put that liquid on your face and neck and use it to massage. You will get better result that way : D

REVIEW :

1. BB Cream
I don't have any experience with SKIN 79 BB Cream. Up until now, i only use bbcream from ETUDE and SKINFOOD, CARING. 
For you that never have bbcream before, bbcream is a cream that you use as substitue of foundation. It more light compare to foundation, and it usually called as "All in 1 cream". BB cream already contain moisturizer, base, and sometime even special function like whitening, anti wrinkle, etc. Not like foundation that usually too heavy for face - especially for people with sensitive skin- bbcream is more light n suitable for many skin type. There is also special type of bbcream, like for sensitive skin, for oily skin, for anti aging, etc. The coverage of bbcream is variable, from light-medium-full coverage, depend on what bbcream you choose to purchase.You can choose one that suitable for your skin type.
 
I will share information about bbcream based on my experience with my favourite bbcream. 
ETUDE HOUSE Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit SPF 30 PA++ ^^
This is my second bbcream i used ( my first bbcream is from Caring Colour Brand), and end up to be my favourite bbcream.
Texture : the texture is not thick but more to liquid, so thats why it's very easy to spread out. You just need a little amount to fully cover your face and neck area. I usually apply this without using any primer or base before because its already moisturize my face much enough.
Coverage : Medium- Full coverage. You can really see the different of your face before and after apply. You will see your smooth glowing skin after you finished apply it.
 What i like
* Very Good Coverage
* Smooth n glowing finished as what the Etude House promise about this product
* Come in tube - no need to worry about higienity
* Big size - compare to the prize, it still worthed to buy, because a little goes long way and you get big size that enough for more than a year.
What i don't like :
* Its not really light make up.
* Its not suitable for sensitive skin based on my experience. My skin already a little bit sensitive, but it still ok to use this bbcream for daily use. But if i was in menstruation period where my skin is more sensitive than usual, i will not use this bbcream, i prefer light one to avoid the possibility of pimple to appear (especialy at my nose)
Ratings : 9/10
Repurchase : Absolutely Yes.

TIPS about bbcream :
* Like any other cream, always remember to choose one that suitable for your skin type.I don't recommend use bbcream that actually not suitable for your skin type, but you still want to purchase it just because it gives very good result. If you really want that kind of bbcream, at least just purchase in small amount and don't use it daily. Just use occasionally at special event, so that there will be no trouble at your skin.
* Always remember to clean your face well after using bbcream. Bbcream- especially one that has full coverage- is also like any other cream, if you leave bbcream at your face when you sleep, you will end up having pimple. The result maybe not so dramatic like if you use foundation when you sleep (afterall, bbcream is more light make up than foundation), but i believe no one like to have "something" wrong at their face, even if its just small pimple.


2. Lip gloss
TIPS:
 * For good glowing lips, just put the lipgloss at the middle of your lips.
 * I reccomend use lipbalm first before put your ligloss, because usually lipgloss cannot really moisturize your lips.
* If you meet urgent situation where you need blush on, you can use your pinkish or orange lipbalm as a substitute for your blush on. Just put a little amount at your cheek, and blend it well using your finger.

3. Boy lotion
TIPS:
* put body lotion at least once every day at your body, especially if you live at a hot tropical country like me, to prevent your skin from dehydration, and not glowing anymore. I don't like put body lotion at morning because i will have busy schedule that full of sweat usually. But i always remember to put it at the evening to give nutrition to my skin. I will put it 1 hour before go to sleep. Don't put it exactly when you're ready to sleep, some part maybe will end up stick at your bed cover and become waste.

4. Nail Polish
TIPS:
* Use base coat and top coat. Base coat is to protect yor nail, and top coat is to protect your nail polih- make it more long lasting and not easily become cracking and doesn't look good anymore.
* If you use nail remover, always follow by put a hand lotion to moisturize your nail. Based on my experience, even good nail polish n remover from famous brand, still give a little dry feeling, so hand lotion will prevent to maintain your cute nail ^^

These are the give away.
Note: I will write my review n tips below each picture that have the product/ similar product that i want to talk about it : D

First, for Grand Prize Winner!!


 Such a Super Big Present right?.What is that?? Check it out kyaa >.<)

- A pack of Taiwan False Eyelesashes
- Koji Eyelashes curler
-  Baby Doll False Eyelashes 
- BH Cosmetics Gel Eyeliner in Gold *super recommend
- Blush on & Highlighters Compact Duo

- Sample of Skin food Royal Honey Mask
- Sample of Tony Moly Sleeping Pack
- Sample of Innisfree Vitamin C Booster
- Gold Flowery Head Band


REVIEW n TIPS :  
1. BH Cosmetics Gel Eyeliner in Gold *super recommend
I will try to make review based on my experience with similar product(gel eyeliner). 
Mine is ETUDE HOUSE Drawing Show Gel Eyeliner #BR401 ( note : will give complete review about it at other post - photo,etc )

What i think :
Pros:
a. Gel eyeliner is  completely my favourite type of eyeliner ! >.< why? because its very easy to apply n also give good result like if you use liquid eyeliner.
 I start using this type of eyeliner after my liquid eyeliner from oriflame run out ( its a bolpoin model -- i don't remember the exact name code). At that time, i want to try using other type of eyeliner, but found it still difficult for me to make clear line with other model of liquid eyeliner. And then i tried tester of Drawing Show Gel Eyeliner  at Etude House  and completly falling in love with this type of eyeliner ! >,<
Its so easy to make clear line using this type of eyeliner compare to the liquid one. I really recommend this type of eyeliner especially for beginner. If you don't have much experience with eyeliner, usually you will find it difficult to make clear bold line right? but i never experience that kind of difficulties with this gel eyeliner.
: D

b. A little goes long way
I already use my gel eyeliner for month, almost everyday, but there is still so many inside the tube. Just about 1/3 that is already used, 2/3 still inside the tube. 
TIP from me that you must  remember everytime you want to put gel eyeliner at your eyes, is just always take a very small amount (especially if you are beginner) for best result. And then continue to add more with small amount too ( about 3-4 times until you finish - each eye). Why? because its really a little goes long way. If you pick to much amount of gel, you will end up with messy eyeliner, the line will not come out clear but some part is bold, and the other more thin, or just every part to bold and look weird.

Negative :
a. Even my gel eyeliner is waterproof n smudge proof, but i find it still smudge a little bit if i use it from morning until night ( more than 11 hours), especially at the corner side. 
TIPS
- So i recommed to use base first - like what you use for eyeshadow- if you know will be outside until late hour. But if you just go out for short time, its okay if you don't use any base. 
-  I recommend to choose one that waterproof and smudge proof, so you dont need to always touch up, because if its not waterproof and smudge proof maybe it will be gone because of your sweat, etc.
- Don't put your liquid eyeliner at trash bag after you buy your gel eyeliner. Even if you don't like your liquid eyeliner, you can safe it for urgent time.
Case: you will go outside until late, but don't have any base make up (maybe run out) and don't have time to buy one. What to do? after you finish make clear line with your gel eyeliner, give 1 thin layer of liquid eyeliner. Remember just very thin layer, you don't want to look weird. The function of this liquid layer is just to give finish cover for more long lasting. Don't need to put too much liquid because you already make perfect one with the gel liner.


2.False Eyelashes
TIPS :
For georgeous but still natural look : Ask the store the natural one. Even if its look like too plain, believe me  it will still end up look great in your eyes. You don't want to look over make up like will go to party right?
For elegant sweet party look : choose one that a little bit thick . I prefer one that will still look a little natural even its thick . Why? for me. i want to look amazing, not old.
Based on my experience, i bought wrong fake eyelashes 2 times. The first time is to thick --- i end up look 10 year older -_____-". The second time is  one that not to thick, but have blue colour at the corner. The sales recommend it to me, told me i will look great, but i end up look weird.  
Lesson : don't always believe the store sales, if they recommend something that you are not familiar with. Always know what look you want before buy fake eyelashes at store,because make up also based on personality. Maybe for you that like chic style, you will like that blue fake eyelashes that i bought that time. But for you that want to look sweet elegant like me, you will more prefer black colour one.

3. Eyelashes curler.
TIPS :
-Imagine divide your eyelashes into 3 parts : bottom - middle - top.
Push- Curl your bottom part eyelashes, and then continue with the middle part, and finish with top part.
It will curl perfect if you divide your eyelashes into 3 parts. If you just curl it all together, it will not curl well.
- After you succes curl your eyelashes, quickly put your mascara before your eyelashes come straight again like before. This tip especially for you that have thin short lashes like me.

4. Blush on and highlighter.
BLUSH ON
-For natural look, choose pinkish one. You can choose one that pure pink, or peach (pinkish orange).
-For cheerful look, choose orange one. It will give you more fresh n cheerful look compare to the pinkish one.
-If you have chubby cheek like me, brush your blush on from apple cheek to near your top part of ear ( oblique line). It will make your cheeck look more slim.
-Don't forget to apply blush on at your chin too ( more thin layer than at the cheek).

HIGHLIGHTER
- For natural look choose one that similar to your skin colour. If you have yellow based skin colour like me, i recommend use cream-gold colour. But if you have more white-pale skin, choose white one.
I use It's Skin BabyFace Face Beam #Gold beam (will give more review about this product at other post)
- For cute look, choose pink one. But if you choose these colour of highlighter, remember to not put too much blush on, because sometime it will end up your cheek area look to pink. Must carefully apply it ( blush on n highlight combination.
- Area to put highlighter : bottom part of forehead, middle part of nose, eyebug.
I put a video link from youtube that i find it very usefull to help me explain how to put highlighter n blush on correctly ^^

To be honest, i actually don't have many experience with western beauty product (maybeline,etc), because not so many brands sell their product in my country (Indonesia) even my city . There is only just ordinary brand like maybeline n revlon. So sometime if i need special beauty products i must go to other city or even buy it from other country online -_-".

Moreover, i usually prefer korean make up such as Etude, Skinfood,Faceshop,Missha,etc for natural daily use because i like light make up to provide more casual look ( for going to campus, or just nearby place). But currently, i do become interested in western beauty products, since i have watched some make up tutorial at youtube. I start to check western tutorial make up, especially for eyes, because my friend had a wedding and i suddenly feel excited to try my own glamourous make up . So i end up looking for good but easy glamour tutorial make up, try that tutorial (i forget which one, cause its already months ago sorry >.<), and finished with more glamourous look !! : D.. I felt kinda excited that time because usually i just have light casual make up, and found it amazing that i can do my own glamourous make up without need to go to salon. yeyyy!

So as the result of that experiment, i end up falling in love too with western make up. I realize these 3 points from that experiment:
1. For hang out, and especially go to party, the looked i get from that time is absolutely more amazing n glamour compare to my daily look.
2. Western beauty product's  key point for amazing look is its usually have more bold n attractive colours .
3. And more over, if i can do my "special make up" by my self, of course it will save some amount of money. I can use that money to purchase another hot beauty item ! v^^v

 But for daily use, i still prefer korean makeup at all, why?
a. because its more light ( i believe to have weight daily make up is not good for our skin :) )
b. fast to finished. ( Realize it or not, but for a heavy make up, even you end up have very amazing look, it needs much of time to finish. I don't want to spend many time everyday, n prefer something that fast n then ready to go!  )

So, join the give away n hope for luck. Choose me kristy^^

Last, thank you for reading my blog, n will see you again with my review of ETUDE Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit SPF 30 PA++. See you again, annyeonghaseyo : D
