Welcome to my blog!

If you are in for an adventure paired with lengthy, quirky, brutal honest thoughts then you are in the right place.

My name is Arisa and was a cosplayer for 12 years in Malaysia before settling down in Kyoto, Japan. Exploring Japan full time has been a long time dream of mine, so let's explore it together!

BCL date with Tanabe-san!

Being invited to meet and have a workshop with one of the most renowned make up artist in Japan, is definitely a dream come true for every Japanese culture loving girl like me and i won't deny that i love their country more than my own (shameless haha!) *slaps self*

Tanabe-san in action during the hands-on workshop.

Tanabe-san is a well known for his exquisite make up techniques in Japan's beauty industry and has been featured countless of times in TV shows and magazines.
And thank you so much BCL Malaysia for inviting him over to share with us the latest look trends in Japan *shiawase*

Not only that. we get to experiment with every one of BCL's products which is my first time, it's definitely love at first sight. I can never get enough of Japanese cosmetics! Every time i get an opportunity to try out a new brand, it's like falling in love all over again and i end up feeling unfaithful to my current favourite brands lol! HAHA!
Guys feel guilty for cheating on girls but for girls case it's make up instead. Lol.

BCL is a short for Beauty Creative Lab that is specially catered for fashionable young, working adults who simply just want to look awesome on a daily basis (which girl wouldn't lol?). BCL is also a cosmetic line with a few brand range under them such as Makemania Data, BrowLash Ex, Tsururi and many more to come!

Tanabe-san introduced to us 4 of the most famous looks carried off by the trendy Japanese girls in different districts of  Japan such as :
  • Shibuya Girl (Cool & Confident)
  • Akihabara Girl (Dolly & Natural)
  • Harajuku Girl (Pop & Sweet)
  • Yokohama Girl (Fairy & Elegant)
During the life demo by Tanabe-san, he was teaching us how to achieve an Akihabara girl look with just a few simple steps using only BCL cosmetics.
One thing i love about BCL is because their packaging comes in such convenient sizes, it makes emergency make up kit easy to carry around in our handbags.

6 simple steps in 10 minutes (or less) and you are ready to make heads turn girls *winks*'

Step 1: Make sure to apply a layer of  make up base before starting using Clearlast Face Powder by Peach John, which smells totally like peach!

Step 2: Next gently trace in your eyebrows using Browlash Ex W Eyebrow Pencil & Liquid. A brow pencil that has 2 heads (pencil and liqiud), to achieve 2 different effects :-D

Step 3: Apply the eye-shadow along your eyelid crease MakeMania Data Gradation Tip Shadow

Step 4: Lined the upper lid using MakeMania Data Pencil Gel Eye-liner for a more natural and softer look or Liquid Eyeliner & Browlash Ex Water Strong Liner which comes with 2 different brush tips for different kind of eye liner thickness.

Step 5: Moving on the the lashes, without the aid of an eyelash curler you can achieve voluminous long lashes with just a few strokes of Browlash Ex Curler Express/Lash Sclupture/Volume Lash Fiber

Amazing results achieved using Browlash Ex Curler Express/Lash Sclupture/Volume Lash Fiber.We experimented using all 3 mascaras at the same time and as you can see there isn't a single sign of clumping! That is my sis by the way, she was my partner for the workshop.

Step 6: Finish this look with  by topping your lips with MakeMania Data Essence Rouge Gloss that is available in 3 yummy colours: Strawberry Red, Peach Orange & Cherry Pink. For this Akihabara Girl look we used "Peach Orange".

A lip gloss that smells and taste so gooooooood!

How do you like my finished Akihabara Girl look? 

My favourite product throughout the workshop is Browlash Lash Sculpture (red) which so happens to be one of their hottest selling mascaras in the market and another reason is because I'm a mascara lover ♥ ohoho~ no mascara can hide from me :-D If only i could bring home all 3 of these *kyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa*

Using cotton and oil based make up removers are inventions of yesterday because BCL introduces to us with TSURURI GHASSOUL PASTE which is a natural scrub make up remover. All you have to do is later it gently in circular motion all over your face and rinse it off with water. It leaves your skin feeling "TULU TULU" as translated by our pretty translator it means soft and smooth like the surface of a hard-boiled egg (without the shell la lol).

Group photo with all the lovely bloggers together with the BCL team. Special thanks goes to Manoah Consulting and Mandom for organizing this wonderful workshop :-)

A lil gift that came all the way from Japan! Isn't these chocolates just so adorable (*w*) I don't even have the heart to eat it LOL.

BCL is available in Sasa outlets all over Malaysia, so don't be afraid to try them out girls ;-) It's definitely worth every single penny paid. Follow them on Facebook for the latest ongoing promotions or who knows they might organize another workshop like this again.
