One of the reason why I love
gossiping chatting with my biras is because we share the same interest : makeup! Yeah, if you haven't know, I'm a makeup freak. At times when I'm in the mood, I would test all sorts of eye makeup at home. Imagine me cooking sambal tumis with smoke-eyes look on, lawak tak? Hahaha!
Last weekend when I met her at the in-laws, Papakeechee was all excited to show off her latest makeup purchases. Oh, we love bragging about our purchases to each other, because we can tolerate the bragging like nobody else could. Haha!
I was attracted to one of her purchases, that is the gel eyeliner from Cosway
because it is cheap and I can only afford cheap stuff! Since I've never tried a gel eyeliner before, I got all psyched to try this one out. And on the way back home, I made the big guy stop at Cosway and purchased it once and for all. Once we arrived home, I was hoping to try it immediately, but duty called. Had to prepare cucur for tea, and then whipped up dinner while taking care of that little fellow's needs.
So after they were both well-fed, I started the mission to paint my face and this time, my main aim was to learn how to apply the gel eyeliner properly without smudging it. I think for a first timer, I did quite a good job, as there wasn't any mess at all on my eyelids! Hoorah! And I invented a new eye makeup 'style' that my mum called 'Jerangkung'. But I love them because they make my eyes look, well, ermmm...different than they normally does. Hehehe.

On a different note, I find it really hard to create smoky eyes that does not look jerangkung-like. Can any of you give tips on how to create gorgeous smoky eyes that won't make you look like some ghastly creature? Please share!
