-ONE- #PRAYFORNEPAL There's nothing more saddening this past week than the news of the deadly earthquake in Nepal, so called the Himalayan earthquake+ that has caused more than 6,600 lives and injured more than twice as many so far. If you'd like to help financially, Pratigya Tamang, or Promise Tamang Phan, who is from Nepal, has set up a Homes for Earthquake Victims fundraiser at gofundme.com/Re-buildNepal where you can help by donating as little or as much as you want to help re-build homes for the victims. She and her husband will personally donate $10,000 once the $100,000 donation goal has been met. She's truly a beauty inside and out and I encourage all of us to help donate to those who are less fortunate. Every dollar counts! :)
-TWO- I tried a new makeup trick this week and I'm loving the result! Since the move, my face has been bombarded with big, red, painful, hormonal acne that it has become such a hassle trying to conceal them. I've heard of this trick for some time now but have only had a chance to try it this week, and that is applying concealer before foundation! I spot conceal my acne first, then follow with my foundation routine. This helps blend away concealer edges as well as prevent it from drying up and caking. The foundation will move the concealer a little bit so depending on the coverage needed, I'll sometimes follow with more concealer on the spots that need more coverage.
-THREE- I'm starting to look into online makeup shopping from places that offer free international shipping. So far I have found Beauty Bay, Cosme-De, Vivadream, Strawberrynet, and Feelunique, among many others. Have you shopped from any of these sites before? How has your experience been with them? Do you have any other places that you regularly shop and recommend? I do have a good friend in the US who is willing to ship my US orders to me but it would be better if I didn't have to bother her all the time! In Thailand, my Facebook followers recommended Central, Luxola, Konvy, and more (see my Facebook post here). If you know of any trustworthy places, please share!
-FOUR- This week I've been obsessed with my new Laura Mercier Caviar Stick (see review) in Moonlight (US$28; Sephora)! As always, the pigmentation is absolutely amazing! The formula is also crazy creamy and mega long-lasting. Moonlight is a super sparkly metallic pewter shade that I like to use in the inner corners of the eyes to highlight and boy, does it look stunning! It makes a great base for powder eyeshadows, too!
-FIVE- Of course, my week wouldn't have been complete with out buying more stationery! This week I present you a set of 0.38 mm M&G ballpoint pens that has this phrase stamped on it: This Dalatwo is Vintage. Absolutely NO idea what it means. LOL! But hey, they are cute and write well and that's all that matters! ;) I'm still missing the green one so I make it my mission to hunt it down next week!
