Anna Sui S/S 2016 Launching Party

Hello everybody i am back again with a bunch of new photos and story! last wednesday i attended Anna Sui Spring Summer 2016 make up launching at Seibu Grand Indonesia, West Mall. Just like before Anna Sui always invite a bunch of fashion and beauty bloggers and also some people who work in magazines. i've met some new friends and also some of my blogger fellas. Since blogger community in my city Jakarta isn't really big. i usually see some familiar faces in every fashion and beauty event. i feel so lucky to get invited by Anna Sui team because it's one of my favorite make up brands from Japan. so i came right on time at 2 pm and there was my friend Laura already sit beautifully on a couch. i wore a casual outfit inspired by a beach and Anna Sui signature color which is wonderful purple. To make my look NOT TOO CASUAL i wore pink shirt as inner top. dusty purple sweater and purple statement necklace since my sweater is quite plain.
i was in the mood to wore something easy, comfy but still look chic at the same time. To bring up summer vibe just like the collection i wore a denim short (since i know this sweater is too short if i wear it as a dress hahaha) i also wore a light brown straw hat and my new nude color wedges, and soft pink handbag to match my pink shirt. as you can see my look is all about pastel colors and summer. Tell me what is your favorite summer item? i personally really like denim short A LOT, A LOT, A LOT (>u<)/

on this event they served us some sweets such as strawberry panna cotta (italian dessert), green tea cake, guava & lemon juice, and so many more. i like all of them hahaha and also all Anna Sui team were so warm and friendly what a lovely afternoon with fellow girls.

these is me and my friend Olivia at testing corner where they put a lot product sample that we all can try and also pretty roses at every corner, ughhh i wish i could stay here all day long hahaha

from left to right @OliviaFabrianne, me, and @OllyviaLaura. GIRLLLL take a look at Laura's lipstick

Anna Sui Gel Foundation Primer (28 gram, spf 24. Rp 340.000)

oh yeah because i want to show you guys their brand new product more clear, i recapture these pictures again not in launching event. because i want clearer photos with bright lighting hahaha i am quite perfectionis when it comes about photos. These collection unlike other season collection, unlike other brand collection. i HIGHLY recommend you to try this Anna Sui Gel Faundation Primer. Anna Sui just launched these product THIS MARCH 2016.
its available in 1 color suitable for all skin tone. yes yes it looks like regular cream on this photo but IT ISNT the texture kinda like pudding. this water based gel spreads effortlessly and is formulated to release water upon contact replenishing the skin with instant hydration. it has a soft focus effect and delivers clear, poreless skin. Pudding like texture of the gel base gently lifts the skin for a plump and youthful look. so it tightening your skin! Now i always use this before i put my foundation, and i use Anna Sui loose powder after foundation. read Anna Sui Loose Powder review right here in bahasa Indonesia.

it is also so easy to use, just use the attached spatula and spread over face evenly before applying foundation. and just clean the spatula as needed.

i always curious what the beauty ingredients inside all of my make up,
because i have a sensitive skin, it cause acne break up when a product doesnt suit my skin.
i honestly just started to use these Anna Sui S/S 2016 this march obviously because it just launched. but Anna Sui cosmetics has a good reputation on my skin so i dont worry much about it.

Anna Sui Matte Powder Foundation (10 gram, spf 25. Rp 340.000)

this high tech formula features a unique raspberry-shaped powder instead of the regular spherical powder used in most foundations so that light is beautifully diffused at multiple angles to deliver really soft focus effect! this faundation deliver a light, smooth finish but still blocks out harmful UV rays.
in addition, 2 kinds of complexes for surface treatment have been combined to ensure the product spreads without the stickiness. Sebum absorbing powder works to prevent make up from smudging, so the smooth, dry finish last a long time. this matter powder foundation is available in 7 shades. mine is 101 light beige. the brightest one is 100 white beige but i prefer a foundation tone that suit my skin perfectly. not something too bright cos i dont want my face and my neck shades look different.

Travel Stamp Cream Cheek Color (Rp 320.000)

Inspired by the look of travel stamps, Anna Sui's new cream cheek color come with sponge applicator on top of it! asdfghjkl I LOVE THIS ONE SO MUCH! applying blush has never been more easy and fun at the same time. at first time i honestly thought this blush gonna feel thick on my cheek but it turn out feels refreshingly light! This new cream cheek color from Anna Sui features a generous amount of baloon powder, a hollow, spherical silica powder, with a gel base that softlens when subject to light pressure. basicly it create a soft focus effect that covers pores and delier a lightweight finish! and not to mention the packaging design make this A MUST HAVE ITEM. i usually use brush to apply blush so i hesitate that this sponge could create a natural finish, i mean we all wont look like a clown with spotted red cheek. all you have to do is take a desired amount onto the sponge or fingertips and apply to cheeks and clean sponge with tissue after each use. how easy is that??? you dont have to bring a big brush for blush into your small make up purse anymore! this travel stamp cream cheek color by Anna Sui available in 5 shades. mine is 302 Poppy it not orange but its not pink as well, it like a combination between orange and pink, ugh i'm in love!

i love olivia's efforless chic look, black and white skirt with plain white top and nude color outer! that one on my left is Kak Brigida. i just knew her at this launching party she's a designer and she made that blue dress by her self, lovely sweet look, me smiling widely, and Laura with abstract pattern dress and plaid blazer as outer.

hold on everyone, check out my awesome eyelashes hahahahaha so lately i bought 12 pairs of false eyelashes, and i still feel the need to buy more!!! i am officially addicted to FALSE EYELASHES! even i make a tutorial about how to apply false eyelashes for beginners, 2 easy ways in 4 minutes!
watch me here :

from left to right Anna Sui Matte Foundation, Gel primer (come with spatula stick), 3D nailpolish (with cute bird on top of it) i ADORE this nailpolish. it looks gold and green at the same time, and it smells SWEET, i swear! the next one Travel Stamp Cream Cheeks, and on the right is Anna Sui foundation case.

Make up session with me

At the end of February i've got invited to fashion and music festival called Japan Wave Expo (JWE) at Central Park Mall. i came as a fashion blogger / model guest, there were some beauty talkshow and also performance by indonesian and japanese mucisian as well such as Tulus, Teenabelle, Elle & Jess Yamada, Faint Star,  and so many more. si did collaboration with Kay Collction and Mimi Kwok Make Up artist. Mimi did japanese make up demonstration on me and my friend Rachel, we are from the same agency called Japanese Station based in Jakarta, Bandung. we thought Mimi gonna do make up demonstration on me and Rachel but because we only had limited time on stage the team decided to finished Rachel make up first before we went up on stage. So Mimi did my make up while Bou (MC) did interview with Rachel. i already did all base make up such as faundation, concealer, and powder before i went to the stage so it saved much more time and Mimi did the rest of my make up on stage, SO I WENT ON STAGE ONLY WITH BASED MAKEUP i look like a pale monkey lol 
but Mimi finished it beautifully on stage hahahaha 

There was a rude crew who supposed to took care of me and Rachel called Rezki but he was gone all the time on that day, no one took care of our bags when we got up on stage, he said racist joke as well that i better not telling you right here, he didnt pick up our phone calls, i've got confused when i asked my lunch but he suddenly dissapear but before he was gone he pointed at some food merchant and said "THOSE PLACE SELLING FOOD, GO THERE AND BUY IT BY YOURSELF" but he end up transfered my lunch budget. 2 FREAKIN DAYS AFTER EVENT, when me and rachel asked him to record video with my phone he was so rude he said "NO, RECORDING YOUR VIDEO ISNT MY BUSINESS" and he's gone again (=___=) when Rachel about to go to Travel agent cos she had to went back to Bandung around 8 pm, Rachel asked that person if he could accompany her he just said "NO, i'm lazy", my friend Rachel was confused so she asked another JWE crew and another JWE crew confirmed that Rezki's job description is just taking care of Rachel and me.  and i heard that Rezki want to join Japanese Station where me and Rachel works as a talent, hahahahahaHAHAHAHA all i wanna say is please learn some manner first. beside that rude guy actually another JWE crews were nice i wonder why me and Rachel had such a bad luck lol
i prepared my self that i cant get any photos documentation to update my blog but it turn out one of Japanese Station photographer came, and captured me and Rachel pictures and even make a video documentation CLICK HERE to watch it in bahasa indonesia. 

beside that unpleasant exprience i am glad that Mimi as MUA of the day is so skillful and i love false eyelashes that she put on me, its a Candy Doll eyelashes. i love it so much, and Kay Collection team were so friendly as well. i am also always in a good mood when i am around another team from my agency because they are such a wonderful people that make my job feel so fun all the time! i hope i get another chance again to work with Rachel, JS Staff, Mimi Kwok and Kay Collection.

Mimi explaining Japanese make up trend, lately in japan it is such A THING to wear blush on under eyes just like how Mimi created on Rachel (left) i love how Rachel blue lens looks contrast with her pink blush.
sadly i am not a contact lens person. Take a look at my make up on this picture, so dewy my skin looks healthy, and i love my lip color. i usually doesnt like when MUA put heavy make up on me, i like how Mimi put "less is more look" on me. 

short interview with Bou as MC he asked me about my outfit, this is before make up session begin, i've told you i look like a pale monkey hahahaha

the walk after make up session finished

Mimi Kwok's team also did this ultra cute twin buns at backstage.
y'all know i like to play it save with my hairstyle i was kinda worry
when the team told me about the concept of my look, but it turn out I ADORE THIS HAIRSTYLE.
so unique and i've got some compliments from my friends as well! 

after me and Rachel finished our work we were still chillin around inside Central Park Mall
with another JS staff.

i wore black peplum top and also peplum skirt, playing with volume and a lil hint of pink
on necklace and bag. its my favorite color of course. at the end of the day even though there were
some unpleasant experience i always put this thought in my mind

"Surround your self with lovely people to get rid of any negativity"

Thanks for visiting my blog what do you think about our look?
oh yeah i havent tell my blog readers that I HAVE A NEW YOUTUBE ACCOUNT in english,
basicly its about me doing fun challenge by my self or with my friends, all this time i share my story by pictures to all of you. i thought it would be interesting to share my day with video as well, so i learn video editing and still trying to improve my english as well. i upload new video every monday, please do check it out.

March 1, 2016


if this is the first time you read my article you're gonna see a lot wrong grammar lol but imma keep writing my opinion about this LGBT issue anyway. first i'm Diras a fashion beauty blogger from Indonesia. The largest moslems country in the world.

here's the thing, 1 of indonesian ex-minister Tifatul Sembirang tweet this
"Muhammad SAW said to you who cought any gay action, kill them"

some public think its a hate speech, but he denied it he said
"what we supposed to do if some people think that sharing knowledge about Quran and hadist is a hate speech?"

first of all i am straight, you all know that so many gay guys works in fashion and beauty industry, but backthen before i jumped in this fashion beauty community, i am not used to be around them as well. but living in one of the most religious country i saw how people treat gay people, transgender people. specially in junior school or high school most bully are boys.
so you guys disgust by the fact that another boys with a dick like another dick? laughing, staring, or physicaly abuse them so YOU FEEL MANLY about your self? thats what cowards do.
looking for weaker people to make them feel superior. because i did excape from a bully, hate speech in my own way. i am at this point where i dont give A FUCK anymore about what haters say about me and i am completely happy about my self.

but seeing people try to make other fell less worth it MAKES ME SICK. dear Tifatul Sembirang you should see your self in a mirror? because i dont think you are THAT ATTRACTIVE to get flirt from girls, women, OR EVEN A GAY GUYS and this is objective opinion not an insult. from a scale 1 to 10. you are 1, but the way you're thinking MAKES YOU -10. 
so Tifatul think he's sharing KNOWLEDGE? i agree all people or religion can have their own opinion, but as i grow up I LEARN TO SHUT MY MOUTH WHEN I DONT HAVE ANY GOOD OPINION TO SAY. 

some people confused about their sexual orientation, most of my friends who are gay wont come out to their family. I KNOW HOW IT FELT LIKE TRIED TO MAKE SOCIETY HAPPY. i went through dissaproval opinion, hate speech, people tried to bring me down PHISICALLY MENTALY in my own case not in sexual orientation. you realize when i make this post i put my self to be a HATEABLE PERSON probably this whole country could hate me, BE IT. i dont care getting hate from a whole country to make 1 people happy about being him/her self. BE YOUR SELF is the most mainstream quote that tumblr kids and instagram kids put on their caption. but it is the hardest thing to do when you have huge barriers.

dont get me wrong i still  think that boys should be with girls. but there's 1 thing that I ALWAYS REMEMBER. i cant stand in between someone else HAPPINESS. so if you are going through confusing time about sexual sexual orientation if it makes you sad, angry, depressed, worthless. DONT EVER FEEL THAT WAY. Never feel wothless about your self. because i know how it felt like. everytime you feel down you can come back to this article and read this. i am constantly remembering EVERYBODY including Tifatul Sembirang to be happy. all gay people have every right to come out to your friends to your family. happy people build people up. if any of you trying to bring people down, while they did NOTHING to you, you guys seriously has something to fix in your mind, in your heart.

if you are gay or transgender thats ok, if you are gay and if you want to change it the only reason supposed to be for you self. dont do it for anyone else in this world because sexual orientation is INDIVIDUAL RIGHT. dont change for your parents or friends if that will make you feel sad inside. because the real family is those people who stand by your side when no one else want to.

spread love not war!
xoxo, Diras.
