Well, not bride but bridesmaid.
I’ll be playing bridesmaid over a couple of weekends and I have been wondering how to do my makeup so I look good but not better than the bride. After all, its her big day and I don’t want to steal her thunder though I seriously doubt I’d be able to produce that happy bridal glow even with my beloved Guerlain Meteorites highlighter!
That said, I may be leaning towards a neutral look with more dramatic eyes for the night. My makeup skills are such that I cannot produce the smokey eye look effectively bar a look that approximates the smokey eye look. That might be good. I can’t be looking smokier than her 😉
I’d most likely use the Guerlain Illuminating Perfecting Primer which works as a good base for me and then use some powder foundation over it. I know liquid foundation works better so I’m still toying with the idea of using a liquid foundation if I can find one in my collection worth using without botching up. I’d definitely set it all with my Make Up For Ever Loose Powder which I swear by for oil control and for budge-proof makeup.

Yes yes I know its only mid-November, but already I’m feeling the Christmas spirit in the air. *jingle jingle*
I have something HUGE planned for Christmas this year so do stay tuned to this site (subscribing to my feed will bring bonus extras! 😉 ).
I wish I could tell you what its all about, but I promised myself I wouldn’t leak it out early and spoil the surprise. But to keep you in suspense, here’s a sneak peek at what is in store.
And the sponsors are still coming in!
Mark off 1 December on your calendar folks, because that’s when I’ll unveil all.
Excited yet? I am! 😀
In my last post on the Coffret D’or Party Palettes for Christmas, reader Cynthia asked in a comment:-
rm98 each is really a good price,
still deciding wanna buy this or the RMK holiday palette
what do u think?
Well, I withheld comment until I’d actually seen the RMK Christmas palette in person instead of online and yesterday evening, while I was at Isetan The Gardens, I popped by the RMK counter to check out the palette. The testers are hidden away so you have to ask. They don’t expect it to go on sale until next week when stocks come in.
Now, I’m a stranger to RMK products I’d freely admit. Not many things have attracted my attention much even if I know that the foundation gets raves all over the world and I should really be thankful that we have a counter here when other people elsewhere are dying to see the products in person before buying. Unfortunately however, nothing much grabs me and says “BUY ME!!”
Unfortunately, the RMK Christmas Palette falls into the same category.

All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players
~ Shakespeare, As You Like it
You might have walked past a new makeup store in town that looks something like this:-
… and you might have wondered “What is Stage?”
Stage is a new local cosmetics brand that is presently available in a number of cities around Malaysia and in Singapore and soon Brunei. In Kuala Lumpur, you will find Stage at MidValley Megamall and Pavilion Kuala Lumpur (look for the Padini Concept Store).
I was recently introduced to this new brand together with fellow bloggers Beetrice of Beetrice’s Reviews, Kahani and Syen of Soloverly and Kimberly of Narcississm is Necessary (most apt!) where we had a good time playing with the products Stage has to offer, all thanks to Beetrice and a lovely friend MK. Never let beauty/female bloggers loose in a makeup store! LOL…
It is easy to dismiss the brand as just another MAC Cosmetics or Makeup Store or Make Up For Ever wannabe. But, I always believe that every brand has its own strengths and in that sense, so does Stage. In fact, Stage is a homegrown brand – conceptualized right here in Malaysia with products sourced from all over the world – Italy and Germany included.
Having played around with some of the products Stage has to offer, there are 4 products that stand out most at Stage cosmetics from my point of view:-
