Panasonic Beauty Cafe @ Glasshouse Seputeh

My daily life has changed beautifully ever since Panasonic came into my life. Aiming to create beauty in every aspects of women life, Panasonic has been continuously helping women to make beautiful happen a lot easier with their beauty tools and equipments. This round, 3 new Panasonic products were being introduced through hands-on demonstration (which I will further explain in the later article). 


The first product was Micro Foaming Cleansing DeviseEH-SC50. We were asked to remove make up using the warn make up removal head together with Bio-essence makeup remover, but of course if you have you own makeup remover at home it is applicable as well. 

Still using the same micro foaming cleansing devise, its extremely fine and high density micro-foam and soft brush functions effectively to remove dirt and oil. First, add a bean-sized of facial cleanser of any types (gel, cream or liquid) into the pump followed by a cap-sized of water as shown in the picture below. After that, select the "wash" button and the devise will generate micro-sized creamy foam to clean gently but deeply inside the pores.   
As EH-SC50 is waterproof, you can easily clean the devise with water by removing the brush head. 

The second facial product that being introduced was Ionic Cleansing and Toning Devise, EH-ST50. This devise uses ionic power to allow moisturizing ingredients to deeply penetrate into the skin. As demonstrated, we used cotton pad filled with toner and attached it together with the device. While using this, 'cleanse' mode was selected. Next, select 'moisturize' mode and apply moisturizer separately onto your face followed by its warm rhythmic massage. The ionic flow from '+' to '-' pole causes ions to move and creates water flow which infuses the hydrating ingredients deep into the epidermis. 

Lastly, the Styling Brush Ion, EH-HT40. This brush is so easy to use and Yoshi san already tested it on my hair before the launch. And finally I got to try it during the launch and it really helps to create natural curls. However, the tips not to get your hair stuck is to do it with one direction. Let's say you are curl your hair inwards, keep it the same direction. With 2 temperature settings, this brush can be adjusted accordingly to the desired type and style. Besides that, it is also safe to hold the brush while styling your hair as its temperature is designed to a lower level.

15 mins Makeup Look Using 3CE

A lot of people asked me what type of blogger I am? I always told them I'm a lifestyle blogger who focus on fashion, beauty, food and travel. But I gotta admit I haven't been contributing a lot of beauty tips lately. Therefore, today I'm sharing my 15-minutes everyday make up look using all 3CE products. 

3CE is one of most trendsetting Korean beauty brands. I have always been their fan (especially on their lipsticks and tints) way before Sephora carry the brand. Now with its accessibility, I actually get to try and find out the rest of the products are equally great as well.

The first step of course is to apply a base/foundation either using Glossing Waterful Foundation or Back to Baby BB Cream. I personally love Glossing Waterful Foundation because of its hydrating formula. The high water content formula is so easy to apply that it does not require any blending. Both Glossing Waterful Foundation and Back to Baby offers sheer coverage which it is meant to be. They are formulated to even out your skin complexion and cover small imperfections. I personally prefer the minimum bare-face dewy look, therefore these two products are now my match made in heaven. 

Apply a fine eye liner and blend the eye crayon over your eye lids (using 3CE products as well, unfortunately I missed out featuring them in my flatlay picture). It then follows by applying 3CE 'I'm Good' Mascara. This is one of the most long-lasting waterproof mascara I have ever used. I guarantee you this one doesn't give you a smudge even you are out the whole day. 

Lastly, give your cheek a radiant touch with either Creamy Cheek Stick or Duo Colour Face Blush. I personally love the Duo Colour Face Blush because of its matte finishing. It is also highly pigmented, which means easy application as the colour turns out is the same like what you see. Hence, you will not get the bold streak while applying on your cheeks. I also like the two colours combination that you can achieve 3 different shades in just one blush. For the Creamy Cheek Stick, I would recommend to the girls who are always on-the-go as this product is so convenient you can just dap on your cheeks to create a long-lasting flush.

15 mins and you are done. Of course, you can add on with lipstick but to me that's optional. If you love 3CE products like I do, you can purchase them at any Sephora stores as well as their online platform.

MUFFEST 2016 @ JAKARTA

I was so thrilled when I received the invitation to attend the fashion shows brought by STYLO together with MATRADE in conjunction with Muslim Fashion Festival (MUFFEST) 2016 in Jakarta last week. Followed by the opening of International Modest Fashion Week in Istanbul, MUFFEST is another global event hosted by Indonesia Fashion Chamber (IFC, one of the biggest designers association in Indonesia) to encourage modest designers all around the world to gather and showcase their collection within the same community. In a move to promote Malaysian Modest fashion designers on the world map, particularly the ASEAN markets, MATRADE together with STYLO International has sent six Malaysian fashion brands including Ainibakker (Nor Aini Bakker), Yan's Creations (Yani Bakhtiar), Illuvwirdah (Virdah Adnan), Azura Couture (Azura Mazaruddin), Durrah Jewellery (Durrah Khalil) and Sara J (Sara Jamaludin). Throughout the 5-day MUFFEST exhibition, these brands were given a chance to promote their brand to international visitors or buyers. 

The beauty of modest fashion is not only that it resembles rich cultural elements, it is also about individuality and uniqueness. Muslim females who want to create their own form of expression through fashion, which signaled their own state of mind and worldwide. I personally think this makes them no different than the Hip-hop, Grunge, Punk and Goth movements that can be found all over the world. 

Modest fashion has taken the global fashion world by storm these past few years. So much so, international designers like Dolce & Gabanna, Oscar de la Renta, Tommy Hilfiger, and even clothing labels or retailers like Mango, Uniqlo and H&M has followed the footstep to embrace Muslimah-oriented fashion designs into their collections.

Thank you Malaysia Fashion Week (MFW) team for giving me a chance to witness the beauty of another. Modest fashion represents a growing market in the world, and the worldwide spending on Muslim clothing is projected to grow to $327bn by 2020, according to the latest Global Islamic Economy report. Therefore I believe it will definitely be an exciting journey for MFW to explore and create an intentional platform for modest fashion to trade and buy. 

While some may ask why me? Even I asked MFW this question and they simply said because they would like to portray modest fashion in a different angel where all races are able to appreciate the beauty of modest fashion.

It was a pleasure. Looking forward to more interesting events by MFW.
