Project Rainbow Cameo

Hello ladies! How ya'll doin'? Just updating you of the Rainbow Cameo Project! This is the final week of the Project and I've seen some amazing things these girls have come up with! I'm sure you've seen a few looks and now, let's see what the other beautiful ladies have come up with!

Let's begin with Yellow shall we......

Syafiqah of With Love Kisses is the adventurous lady who took up the challenge to come up with a Yellow-themed look. Inspired by a Cheetah, her eye makeup look is definitely sexy! The end result was simply amazing especially when she used colored contact lenses to make the look 'pop'!

Next up is the ever so daring Mieza of Mieza Everdeen, who volunteered a tribute to green. I love this look and I can definitely see myself wearing it cuz I'm an eyeliner kinda girl. This look is gona make any girl green with envy seeing your gorgeous eyes!

And then we have BLUE by Josephine of Skin Frostings who also hails from Kuching (yay Kuching!). She came up with a really lovely, dainty and delicate look. It just makes awe. Kinda like looking at a princess or something. Or a fairy...a flower child...whatever you call it. But I do agree with Cindy that it does need a lil bit more blue. 

Violet or should I say, Violac is next on the list as Cindy of Cindy's Planet takes on the challenge! Why Violac? She has come up with a Violet and Lilac look of which she mashed up the names, which I thought was so cute of her! She's also very thoughtful in putting up a description of every blogger of this project in her blog post! The makeup looks really sweet and is something that I think a person can replicate. I also think you can take this look from day to night by putting on a darker lipstick shade like a Plum color or something.

Last but not least, Syaza of Bloobs. Blurbs. II (who is also the Project Manager) concluded the project by coming up with a Rainbow themed look which will make you puke rainbow. 

In case you don't know, puking rainbow is an internet term for seeing something so awesome in the internet, ok? Cool.

Syaza's become a makeup freak and she's come a long way. *reminiscing her pre-makeup days (sorry Syaz!) :P  One thing about her remains the same though - her desire to be different. And she has always been different which is why we're friends! And because she dares to be different, expect something a little adventurous from her and her eye makeup look for this project lives up to it! 

And there you have it, Project Rainbow Cameo in a nutshell! I hope you enjoyed and got inspired by the looks that all these talented ladies came up with! Do drop by their blogs as their contents are pretty amazing especially if you're looking for reviews of a particular product you wana try - they're you're go-to beauty gurus. Tune in next time for any more collaborations or if you would like to collaborate with me, I'm up for it too!

The Rainbow Cameo Collaboration Chronicles

My my....I've got back from my vacation and classes have already begun and since then, it was non-stop. It is only tonight that I got the time to sit down and blog. It's September and it's Rainbow Cameo month! As promised, I'm to give some insight on what the other bloggers have come up with! For Orange, Izzah has volunteered to take on the challenge!

Have you ever been on Pinterest or Tumblr or Instagram and admire the manicures that some girls come up with? Do you adore color gradient manicures that seem impossible to do? Well my girl Izzah came up with a tutorial on Orange gradient nails!

Isn't it just beautiful? I've always wanted to do gradient manicures and found some tutorial online but Izzah came up with step-by-step explanation along with pictures that everyone can follow to achieve this look. So head on over to her blog to check this tutorial out!

Remember earlier on I said that the posts will be in the order of the rainbow colors to this collab? Well, the colors will be set on random from now on so what color is up next would be unexpected.

We also have Indigo looks up already! And dearest  Mya of Sweettedy is taking up this unique color. Mya has come up with something special as she did both an outfit and makeup post. Since Indigo is not a common color and buying a dress that you only wear once is a waste, she came up with an outfit comprising of something you already have in your closet! Plus, it is a great look for Muslim ladies out there or those who prefer a more modest way of dressing. I really like her choice of fabric - songket. It is one of my favorite fabrics that I hope to own someday. Of course, she came up with an Indigo themed makeup to complement the outfit.

So there you have it - my take on the Rainbow Cameo collaboration! But wait, this is not all as there are more exciting looks and features to come!

Stay tuned.

Let's Paint This Town Red!

As part of my contribution to Project Rainbow Cameo, I will be attempting red. It's bold but it's pretty easy. Red is a color every woman should embrace. It is daunting for many but I guarantee you once you go red, you will not go back! Here's a few looks I've come up with.

I always love a dress that has something interesting to it. When I first laid eyes on it, I just know I had to have it. It is not easy to find a dress that is blinged yet playful. It is usually glam but not this one. It's perfect for a cocktail party (not that I have any to go to). Bottom line is, it looks good. Also, I matched my lipstick to my dress color. Never be afraid to do so. After all, it's not a crime. A tip on how to wear a dress with this cut is to wear a structured school girl skirt underneath to give it some 'volume' and give it some shape so that it does not look 'flat'.

Dress: Elle Girl
Necklace: gift
Wedged booties: Vincci

Again, another interesting neckline. I've had this for years now and it still looks amazing. I love this dress as it is very classy and very corporate looking. If you are working, you could try this out if your occupation allows it. If not, as a dress for other occasions is perfectly fine. Most important of all, WEAR THE CORRECT UNDERGARMENTS. These fitting fits calls for seamless panties. All too often I see girls wearing a gorgeous, fitting dress and then the outline of their underwear betrayed it. 

Dress: Mango Suits
Belt: Hand-me-down from my mom
Heels: Nose

Lastly, a more casual look. I like a little boho chic style. The shoes aren't exactly red. They have a little orange undertone to it. But let's pass it as red. It is always a good idea to have one outstanding colored shoes to give a 'pop' of color to your outfit. No tips for this look.

Necklace: H&M
Top: Hand-me-down
Pants: Nichii
Wedges: Island Shop

And there you have it, my take on Red. Do check out the others for project Rainbow Cameo which I will update on after this. Stay tuned!

A bunch of bloggers (including myself) will be interpreting the colors of the rainbow through makeup or personal style and such.
