Tutorial: Watered Down Jasmine

As inspired by xsparkage, this is a "watered down" version of the original Princess Jasmine inspired look.
xsparkage aka Leesha is one of my favorite YouTubers. I've learned so much about blending eyeshadow and she certainly inspires me to wear colorful looks. I love her bubbly attitude on camera and she's just plain adorable. And she loves cats!

Anyway, I hope y'all will enjoy this tutorial. I really suck at doing video tutorials so please pardon the horrible lighting and the awkward presentation.

My cold sore hurts so bad. Got any foolproof remedies?

Read on for pictures and description of items used.

Most cold sore cream that contains aciclovir (eg. Zovirax) needs to be applied at the first sign of cold sore (when you're just starting to get that tingling sensation?).

If the cold sore is already there, Betadine Cold Sore Paint (not sure if this available in Msia) is an antiseptic and pain relieving formula. Also, lysine tablets might help to shorten the duration of cold sore.

Hope that helps. :)

If you frequently get cold sores,u might wanna consult a doc as he can give u topical creams to reduce the pain and all. And also if they dun heal within a week or 2. and rmb don't kiss anyone!

Kia: Thanks! The liner in the corner was quite a b***h to do.

Missmall: Thanks for the advice! I need to check if my current cold sore med contains aciclovir

Agnes: Thanks! Can't wait to see your rendition. The colors quite easy to blend la.

Plue: Thankies :)

Digie: You're welcome! Haha, nothing refrains me from smooching! I don't care if the cold sore's contagious :p Rest! yes. that's wht I REALLY need. Thanks dear. :)

Cheeeezie: *waves* long time no see! Yes! get out of neutrals! Lol.
I like watching video tutorials because I can actually see the strokes of the brushes which is so much easier to capture than reading about. Sadly, I suck in videos. Lol. I have this extreme stage (rather, video) jitters.
