Make-up Today #1

今日のメイク ~ ♪


Today's make-up was inspired none other than my idol Ena Matsumoto ♥♥

松本恵那さんにインスパイアされたメイクですー
似合ってるかな?#^.^#


I fell for her make-up in this picture that she posted on her blog o(>~<)o
Of course it looks much better on her face though.. ^_^''

この人が松本恵那さんです ^w^


So I'm going to give you guys a brief explaination of how I did this look ^o^


1) Apply light brown eye shadow on the area around your eyelid crease.

2) Starting from the inner corner of your eyes, apply a dark brown eye shadow on the line where your eyelid crease is and make sure to fade it out half way.
1 & 2 is to make your eyelid crease more obvious and deeper ^o^

3) Lastly, used a black liquid eyeliner or a gel liner and line your eyes like a cat eye make up. But for this look do extend the wing a little longer ^_^ And make sure you continue to draw the eyeliner all the way out till it juts out of your tear ducks~

4) After that just apply your mascara or false lashes for those who like to use them like I do ^.^

Applying eyeliner in the perfect shape takes time and practice..
You don't want to know how long I usually take to do my make-up =.=
But that's just me coz I'm a perfectionist.. Haha


And just in case some of you guys ask,
I like to use these eyelashes from Ardell which can be found in Sephora or Watsons in Singapore ^w^
I like them because they are long but they can look quite natural~
And I usually prefer false lashes that are side heavy ^.^

Plus recently I loss some weight so I can afford to wear tube tops now~ Haha!!

最近少し痩せたのでチューブトップ着れるようになりました ^o^

I posted another make-up look of mine in a previous post so if you haven't check it out click here !!

Touch Me Collection SS 2012 Stage Report + Behind the Scenes


Hey there!!

Today I'll be sharing with you guys videos and pictures of this year's
Touch Me Collection Spring Summer


Just in case some of you don't know,
the Touch Me Collection is a fashion show put together by a group of Japanese clothing brands.
And this show is organise twice every year; a spring summer collection and an autumn winter collection ^w^

This show is Japanese mode kei based,
so it's definitely my favourite annual fashion event!! o(>~<)o
(Don't know what is mode kei? Click here )
So below are links that I found from youtube of the fashion show!! Enjoy~  






As usual I think Murua did a great job (^o^)b
(Click here to know more about this brand Murua)



Dazzlin's concept of "Cotton Candy Fantasy" this year was quite interesting..
Definitely worth watching!!


And here's a bonus guys!!

I manage to get all the pictures from behind the scenes of the show \(^o^)/

I only uploaded the nicer shots though ^.^










  



  

My idol Ena Matsumoto!! ↑↑ o(>~<)o




That's all my friends ^w^

Compared to a fashion show like Tokyo Girls Collection,
Touch Me is definitely a side of Japanese Fashion that is a bit more high-end ^.^

I hope you liked the fashion as much as I do~
Bye!!

Outfit Today #4



今日の私服は、
Emodaの
シーズンコンセプト
Mode Exotic
インスパイアされました ♥♥

Emodaのエキゾチックプリントを意識したコーデです~

This time my oufit was inspired by my favourite Japanese brand, Emoda and their season concept
"Mode Exotic"


Top / トップ: Cecil McBee (Japanese Brand)

Bottom / ボトム: Comme Ca Du Mode

Shoes / 靴: Rubi Shoes

Necklace & Bracelets / アクセサリー: Talisman's



Emoda's SS collection this is year is uber chic!!

Their season concept is "Mode Exotic"


They played around with exotic prints along with thier brand colours; black & white.



And this a cool accessory that Emoda is sporting in this year ^o^


It's kind of like a choker, and Emoda is selling these in silver or gold ^o^


Doesn't Ena Matsumoto look super gorgeous here??
She wore the gold necklace to the Touch Me Runway Show~





So basically my outfit today was inspired by these 2 ideas ^w^

But my necklace is not an original my Emoda,
I got mine from Talisman's at Far East!!
WAY cheaper than Emoda's one >.< Haha!!

今日のメイク。。


 So to go in hand with the "exotic" theme,
I wore a darker eye make-up and matched it with a pale nude lip ♥♥


 I smoked out my lids with a dark brown eye shadow and followed it with a long cat eyeliner~

My top lashes are from Ardell (Sephora),
and my bottom lashes are Dolly wink!! \(^o^)/ 

Hope you like my look!!
See you~

Introducing Momoko Ogihara & MURUA

Hello there (^o^)/
For this post I will be introducing to you a popular fashion icon and brand.

今日は人気ファッションプロデューサー荻原桃子
彼女のモード系アパレルブランドMURUAを皆さんに紹介したいと思います ^w^


 
So this is Momoko Ogihara ↑↑

She is a popular fashion producer/designer in Japan.
And as the face of her own brand Murua,
she has become a well-loved fashion icon locally and even overseas.


Since her brand debuted in 2006,
she has featured and covered on tons of Japanese Fashion Magazines.

 
So far she has released 2 photobooks of her and her brand..



Here's behind the scenes of her first Momoko premium book ^_^

                              

MURUA is a Mode Kei brand.
And I think you guys know that I am a HUGE FAN of Japanese Mode Fashion o(>~<)o

The thing that I love about this brand is that it is very versatile.
They are really not afraid to play around with fashion and still make it wearable for young girls to wear as casual clothing.

MURUA has come up with many different season concepts since their debut,
but I'll share with you pictures starting from last year's SS collection.

So here is their 2011 SS collection,
"Fairy Sensual"

こちらが去年SSコレクションの写真です~
テーマは「フェアリーセンシュアル」







They used world class fashion blogger Carolina Engman as their model for that season.
And this Fairy Sensual collection is one of my favourite actually ^.^

Below is the video catalogue of that season's collection.
Do watch!! It is really awesome and absolutely worth watching!!


This next one is their 2011 AW Collection.
"Retro Modern Art ~Coquettish Girl~"
 
2011年AWのシーズンコンセプトは
レトロモダンアートでした。







Pretty interesting right?
This collection was inspired by a Dutch art movement called De Stijl,
and they used the idea of contructive shapes and colour blocking.


So this year's SS collection is called
"Flower Girl"

And so far I'm loving the colour palatte and designs >.<
This collection is absolutely beautiful..



I have ALL the pictures of this collection's photoshoot
so do check our blog again when I give a full post about this year's Flower Girl collection!! \(^o^)/

Here's a sneak peak~ ^w^



Momoko Ogihara's taste for fashion is soooo interesting.

I love the way she coordinates her clothes and her take on mode fashion.



And she is super fashionable on a daily basis.

These are her coordinates from the Fairy Sensual collection..



And these are from the Retro Modern Art collection..

Isn't she awesome?
Haha ^o^

Anyway I hope you enjoyed this post~
I will be sharing with you more fashion brands and personalities so do stay tuned~
