Chinese New Year Look

Hi everybody..
I am so stressed out.. hope yall can help me with this..
You all know I have been selling the pigment palletes all these while, in the beginning everything was fine and dandy. I wrapped them up with newspaper and put them in an envelope.. go for pos laju and its done!
Everybody is happy.. no complaints.
EDIT : I HAVE NOW UPGRADED TO BUBBLE WRAP PACKAGING. NO COMPLAINTS SO FAR!
Up until now.. I have been packaging my palletes the SAME way.. but recently (the past few weeks) I have been receiving some complaints from my buyer saying that the pallete are damaged.

Then I was paranoid. I started putting like 4 stacks of newspaper in the envelopes.. it was heavier, more expensive.. but the results are still the same.
damn poslaju.

I don't know what I can do to solve this problem..
Should I use bubble wrap? cuz its also thin and then same thing may happen
or change postal service? citylink.. skynet??

Help!!!

Any help is appreciated girls!!

Moving on.. I dared yall to post skimpy pics just like my Sexed Up Look last week.. and in return I will give the blogger a pigment pallete.
Esther posted hers in her blog and got a free pigment pallete!
Photobucket
Well, thats the end of it.. hehe no more freebies in exchange for skimpy photos.

And now I give all of you the Chinese New Year Look!!


Brows.. I like to use light colours but shading my brows thicker these days due to the trend.

and the usual highlights on the brow bone using Shade 1 and 2 from the pigment pallete. You can use any light colour of course.


I then use Shade 64 on my lids as a base. When using pink or reds, please do not blend too near to the brow bone or your eye will look like a punchbag!!
You can also use any pale red colour for this.


After that I used Majorca Majolica's pink shimmer. The picture of the eyeshadow is down below. I used the pinkie on the inner corner of the eye. This lightens up the red base.
The one I use is the one on the left.

After that I used Shade 73 on the outer corner of the eye. Blend well, don't worry if your eye looks really punched up right now, This is just the base you see. You can also use a dark pinkish red for this.

There, all corrected. hehe.. Use Shade 18 and 29 and brush over all the colours on your eye. This will give your lid a double tone with red underneath and pink on top.
The result will be lighter, sweeter but more intense due to the red underneath.
You can also use any pale pink eyeshadow for this!


Line your eyes up with eyeliner. Remember, its Chinese New Year!! Give your lines a drag at the outer corner so that it slants up like a cat!

Apply mascara!! I used the Feather lashes from Blushberry Lashes Collection.


Use shade 7 to 51 for the blusher. For the lips, prepare them with nude liner or concealer before putting on a pale pink lipgloss!
Hair bun tutorial next week! Remember how Zhang Ziyi fixed up her bun with only a chopstick in Rush Hour? If you own a stick, bun stick, pencils, pens or chopsticks you can follow the tutorial next week!

Get lots of angpow and drive safe during this festive season alright!! Remember, the saman for speeding is RM 300 if you are caught red handed!!! Buckle up behind too.


Its been so long since I last shot using this background. Hehe.. my photographer's skill has improved.

One more thing, if you are bored during Chinese New Year check back at BlushBerry, we will have articles up next week (and an explicit shoot too!)

Keep your angpows safe!! Don't leave your bag anywhere!! Remember to head to the bank once your back! No more shopping.. control! (Seems like I am trying to warn myself instead of yall.. haha)

and lastly.. Gong Xi Fa Cai!! Save an angpow for me alright!!
Muax.. Love you all.
