Daily Crazy Rich Asian Look? By Choi Cosmetics


The most-buzzed movie for the year (in my opinion) is Crazy Rich Asians.  Would you believe I haven't gotten the chance to watch it?  But trust me, I  kind of know what Crazy Rich Asians do because I am surrounded by a lot of them in my line of work.  

You know why I'm talking about the movie all of a sudden?  Because I was lucky enough to receive a makeup line called Christina Choi Cosmetics straight from San Francisco (speaking, I missed San Francisco!)


Christina Choi is an Asian American makeup guru who developed a line of cosmetics to address the challenges Asian women often face with mainstream makeup.

One item that I think was able to answer OUR major concern is their Deluxe Stamp Brush.  I'll talk about it more later, as for now, let me show you my "Daily version" of a Crazy Rich Asian look!

Okay, I did say I tried my very best.  Now let's talk about the Choi Cosmetics makeup items I used to create this simple yet colorful look!

These eyeshadows are pressed eyeshadows with silky smooth texture.  Thankfully, these are cruelty-free and are not tested on animals!  I know some of you wanted to go for that route so I make sure to let you know!

These are non-drying shadows that can actually work even without primer underneath.  I am normal-lidded so it's okay not to use eyeshadow primer!  But, if you are oily-lidded, I still highly recommend primers.

Before I show you how I apply the eyeshadows.  I'm most happy about this brush!  Christina Choi Cosmetics have a total of 6 brushes for now and I'm glad I was able to try their Deluxe Stamp Brush ($28.00).  This is actually a tightly packed flat bristled brush that is designed for small lids.

A closer look

I like to use Chandelier as a base.  I apply it thinly all over my lid not going beyond the crease as shown on photo below.

I also applied a small amount of the same shadow shade on the lower lashline.

Using my favorite Starlet shade, I "stamp" the product building intensity depending on your preference.

Now you all know how much I love to multi-task a single product.  Since Starlet has the right amount of color and a slight lilac base (you all know how much I love that shade for my cheeks!)  I apply a small amount of it on my cheeks with a stippling brush!

$26.00

Shade: Sweet Confection
Sweet Confection is a vivid peach with slight sheen lip color.  It is very creamy and glides easily even on my dry lips and has a demi-matte finish.

Actually, this lip crayon can also double up as a blush if you are opting for cream blush!

DONE!
I haven't done any colorful looks lately but this was a nice change and I wore this look over the weekend!

I personally think at times, we need to up our game with makeup and do a bit of change and go beyond our comfort zone.  I actually got compliments with this look and I only use a couple of products.

Thank you so much http://www.christinachoicosmetics.com for trusting my blog to feature your products.  I really enjoyed using them and will keep on using them!

How do you like my FOTD?
