MakeUp Tutorial - My Qipao Inspired Look

Tuesday, 4 August 2009

Hey everyone!
I felt like i needed to do a makeup tutorial because it's been ages since i did one.

I got inspiration from my Qipao, a traditional Chinese dress (Pronounced Chee-Pow).

What serves as a worthy testament to the beauty of the Qipao is, it does not require the wearer to pep up the look with accessories like scarves and belts. It's designed to show off the natural softness of the female form.

I love learning about different cultures and traditions.
With a world so big, there is always something to discover!

Hopefully you will enjoy the tutorial and possibly try out this look too!

Odd Pic...
The stick was really poking at my scalp, lol

What I used:-

All colours are from the 120 pro palette.
L'Oreal Super Liner
Benefit Mascara

MAC Mineralise Skin Finish foundation
Victoria Jackson Pink Blush

Home made Lip colour
