Japanese magazines are my bible now (fav are Pinky, Popteen and Alice). And one thing ALL the models have in common is this impeccable, dolly face. I know they prolly spend like 25 hours putting on make up but their skin look so porcelain-like and natural! Jealous!
Autumn is coming and today i will attempt to achieve that natural flawless finish, dolly look with tinge of black and purple.
Now foundation is the most important part in achieving this divine, perfect look because you don’t wanna look like a tart with too much cream on top. This season’s look is all about natural but flawless complexion so i will need something that gives me the look of perfect luminous skin without a lot of coverage.
And i’m using Anna Sui’s Moisture Rich Base Makeup series from their latest Fall/Winter 2009 collection!
Beautiful box and the iconic rose bottle!
The best thing about the foundation is that it contains botanical extracts with the goodness of anti-oxidant, made from the finest ingredients in Japan.
It has a cocktail of 5 botanical ingredients—Rose extract (which is so classically Anna Sui), rapsberry fruit extract, apricot oil, grape seed oil, olive oil and all of them sounds so organic and yummy!
As my skin is dry, I opted for the fluid foundation. The new bottle design comes with a pump!
Dab onto face. It’s very moist and to glide smoothly and fit closely to the skin.
One thing i notice about the foundation is that it looks very light on skin when you first apply it. And you might think the shade is wrong for you. But after awhile when the liquid sets in you will get the right tone. Let all the goodness absorb!!!
(Ok, quick facts: Raspberries have up to 50% higher antioxidant activity than strawberries and ten times more than tomatoes, and grape seed oil is a highly effective ingredient that boosts skin moisturization.)
Flawless skin in just one minute!
Now just need to complete the make up.
Purple eyeshadow and brown brow dye to match my light brown hair.
Falsies for a dramatic dolly look.
Also available from the base foundation collection are Moisture Rich Foundation Primer, Moisture Rich Powder Foundation, Loose Powder and Moisturizing Treatment Mist.
For a more glam and mature look you can also try their Lipstick B. In a sexy glossy red!! The rose scent is totally amazing!
You can get them from your nearest Anna Sui counter! ^^
U look like one of those covergirl… *envy* U look beautiful in purple…Love ur blogs to max…. Gambathe ^_^
Thank you!!! I used to hate purple the most but just awhile ago i was going through this purple phase, which is about to fade away hehe
Guess we r goin to see different colour phrase very soon 😛
i like Anna Sui products also.. but will surely broke if i continue to buy every of their products.. ❓
haha just get one or two nice ones lo. ^^
Cheesie! As pretty as always 😀
ur skin is already to start with mah! 🙂
hmm, i like the packaging, but how heavy is the coverage?
hi! It’s enough to cover most imperfections without using concelaer but light enough not to cover my mole. and it is very very moisturizing!! No more cakey foundation or “cracks”. 😈
i was about to ask the same question. is the coverage feel heavy on skin? and how long does the foundation last?
i went out after that and came back at night, still look great! but i have problem finding eyeliner/mascara that really stay. malaysia too humid T_t
looks like BB cream to me; hah.
beaut. make-up! 😈
where did you get those jap magazine? ):
i cant seem to find them anywhere in singapore.
i so want to flip thru them for hairstyles~
Got from Japan. i went crazy i bought like 6 at one go. lol
*stares solemnly at wallet…* 🙁
lolol why u so funny one.

Cheesie, may I know the brand of your brown brow dye?? Very nice!!
that one hor, buy from Japan’s Donquixote one. But do try to find in Sasa or the Nu Ren Wo Zhui Da shop in MV, i think i rememeber seeing it!
KATE is selling them, both brown and blonde colour for only RM25 or so. Can’t remember the price.
why guys don’t have!
because u grow moustache.
pretty. cheesie, you used to be dark. how come you are fairer now?
and do you mind if i ask if this is a piad adv? i just wonder if those are honest comments before i buy the product!!! i dont mean anyting bad, really.
hmmm..you seem to like asking a lot of questions…
it shows that i am interested in her post and i see nothing wrong with it.
any problem with you?
Chill Jay…just wondering ❗ . No need to jump on lakeblue either.
u noe rite..if u dun go in sun ur skin will b fairer? a bit of comon sens lah!
you need a bit of knowledge too on top of your common sense.
you know something called melanin? it has its genetic component.
do your research before you open your mouth.
Apparently because it’s clearly categorized under Commercial Break.

Hi Ringo, normally just a silent reader but I was wondering, the foundation, is it just one shade or there is different shades available?
there are 8 shades altogether! 😀
I’m one of your blog silent reader for many many years. I’m a Malaysian Chinese live in Richmond VA, married and have 2 daugthers, Annabel and Emma.
I like your blue contacts. Can you tell me what is the brand and can I get them online? If not, would you do me a favor – please help me to get a couple pairs and mail them to me? I will pay the cost + shipping + *a thank-you $* thru Maybank transfer to your account. No obligation and I won’t be mad. Thanks Rin.
hey omg your kids are so cute. anyway i got it from Taiwan, and i’m quite sure you can’t get it here. But there are many similar ones. So are you just looking for any blue contact or a specific one?
Thanks for the compliments. My girls can be very handful sometime.
I do wear color contacts too – blue but I just like the blue that you’re wearing.
that one from Taiwan lo. i’m quite sure you can purchase them online. Look around a bit? Will help you have a look too. 🙂
how much does it cost? look great!

Dry skin eh? My half assed research suggests that most Aries have dry skin. 😛

Ya, I was there. How else would I know my skin composition otherwise? I even use soap for my hair k? 😉

you have to do urself to achieve lala effect. mine’s too perfect doesnt work.
After you put on the foundation, what do you use to spread them equally on your face, a brush or with your fingers?
i use fingers wor. never use brush. the warmth on finger works well i reckon.
May I know what brand do you use for the brow dye?
it’s really cheap Japanese brand.
They sell it so ridiculously expensive here.
Oh, I know this brand. I have their silver eyeliner. Thanks babe!

Frankly speaking, you were one of the best technical blogger I ever encounter for a Make Up Artist.
Not even some IT guys or programmer who can have your style and skills.
You have heart and a lot of dedication in it. Perhaps I can say, you are sensitive and paid attention to details as how you wanted it to be.
From Banners to Photos to details … posts, style, NuffNang ads … etc … just so technically advance. You are a good example for me to learn. … guess not only to me but to others as well. Did anyone assist or teach you along the process? If no, you were pure genius~!(a super fast LEARNER)
harh. first time someone call me a technical blogger lol. anyway, thanks for dropping by! 🙂
look at my flag! 😀
GRRRRRRRRRRR YOU ARE MAKING ME GERAM I HETCHU!
wow u are amazingly more beautiful than i am . 😯
hahah yes babe!!! jeles anot!
make up girls have always been a mystery on me. what u did was relatively simple, yet the effect is nice, and not like chinese opera or old fashion mak andam for weddings. you kinda remind me of my sister when she puts on her make up (concealer, blusher, eye liner, eye brush, lip gloss), just a bit here and there voila.. fresh face..
to bad some girls don’t know how to put on make up (they put too much on) or have nothing at all…
anyways, i just saw you in Smart Wheels by Honda, so you are freelance writer? no wonder all that travels and stuff 🙂
where got omg! why i dunno one!
oh saw it. bloody paul. posted the worst pic of me wtf.
Hi Cheesie, between the PINKY & ALICE magazine which 1 is better? Cos i am considering to buy 1 of of it. Thanks!
go for pinky if you like trendy fashion. alice is a bit fantasy/dreamy/ victorian/ lolita.
omg i’m a HUGE anna sui fan~~ love this blog post
and u look really pretty lol~~
u sud check out their new powder foundation case (the autumn collection 09)~
it’s sooooo beautiful……
