How Much Make Up Appropriate to Wear at Work?

It cannot be denied that every time we wake up in the morning, we look pale and tired. Women often find make up one of the quickest way to turn it all around. For the ladies who wake up to go to work every morning, make up is a must to look fabulous and refreshing at the office. However, some women may not know how much make up is okay to wear at work. Below are three simple rules of make up appropriate for the career ladies.

1. Go easy on the eyes
As eyes are seen to be the first thing anyone sees when making a conversation with you, it is important to make your eyes look fresh. Women should always make sure they only apply a slight tint of eyeliner and a few coats of mascara on their lashes. If you someone who always smudge your eye makeup, use a waterproof eyeliner and mascara to be safe. If you are thinking of applying eye shadows, it is advisable to only choose soft natural colours instead. 

2. Tone down the dramatic effect
Yes, it is true that dramatic touches to your makeup such as bright red lipstick or smokey eyes are sexy to pull off. However, remain more sophisticated at work by toning down the dramatic make up effect with colours that do not distract others at the workplace. 


3. Go neutral
Going neutral is always the best approach to choose including makeup. Try colours such as light pink, coral or nude for your lips and be confident with your natural beauty. Do not apply too much foundation and powder on face as it will probably turn cakey. Appear fresh looking at work with only a simple touch of makeup and it will definitely reveal your professionalism.

Psychological wolf fights.

A story to share.

One evening an old man told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside every person.

He said, "My grandson, the battle is between two wolves inside us all.
It's a terrible fight and it's between two wolves.

One is evil - guilt, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, resentment, lies, low self esteem, false pride, ego - he has all of them." 

He continued, "The other is good - he has kindness, joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith."

"The same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too." said the old man wisely.

The grandson thought about it for a while and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"

The old man simply replied,
"The one you feed".

Hello 2015

Hi guys!!

Firstly, i'm not that active on this blogspot blogging.

So, you guys can follow up my life updates on Instagram @engkusulwani okey! Facebook also can lah.

By the way, i'm looking forward to create another blog. Maybe Tumblr or Wordpress. Someday somehow la. If got enough time. Excited!

Oh ya, one more thing. Search my LinkedIn profile "Engku Sulwani" for modelling profession updates. Somewhere between 2012-2014 portfolio. CLICK HERE.
Feel free to email me; For any occasions, inquiries, comments or questions.


Okey, now let's start the story.

This year, i have a new vision and mission. Another stage of life changing pyramid la kate koo...

For 2015, i started to slow down my hijab modelling profession, so most of the time i can focus more on my study. Yes. A full-time student.

However, Alhamdulillah! I am grateful enough to achieve my life goals on Hijab Modelling industry, more than i can expect. =) =) To be honest, i do always seek for interesting life experience, so that one day i can cerita2 zaman dahulu-kala to my cucu cicit. Nenek dulu pernah itu.. nenek dulu pernah ini.. haaa gituu. Betul ke idok?

The life experience to be on magazines, newspapers, billboards.. and involved in international photoshooting Hijab Fashion to overseas, this industry really amazed me. I couldn't ask for more! Malaysia's Hijab Fashion is now evolving around the world!! Mu tengok la sekarang ramai artis dah berhijab kann.. hehe. Good news to hear.

Further story, to cut short; On 2013, i collaborated with Serindit Photo Studio for my first international project called "Summer In Korea", involving top local muslimah fashion boutiques. So we went to South Korea. Yoo la, masa tu kan K-POP tengah top kau! Ahhaa.
What an amazing place!

Next. On 2014, i further my 2nd international project, called #HijabInStyleEurope. It was a huge project by Nabil Nadir Photography and other 35 hijab boutiques around Malaysia. We had fashion photoshoots in 4 europe countries in just a week, traveling to London - Amsterdam - Brussel - Paris. It was a very challenging, but full of amazing and fun experiences!

So now, for 2015..? Just wait and see. ;-)

Being part of it, i feel proud. It's not about the money, or $$$. But it's about how the happy & satisfactory feeling doing what you like so much.
Yeah, i did it passionately. Actually, it's one of my dreams & passions. Hehe. One of. I could be a very different person when i do modelling. Yup! That's the truth.

However, life is full of wonders!! Being a student and do part time modelling at the same time is not that easy. Pursuing in study is much more important for now. Plus, life itself is a big endless TEST. True, isn't it?

Anddd.. Medical study is interesting. It's all about helping people to heal. Your life is now dramatically changed; the patient must be always your top priority!

Lastly, just to mention. "Health is not just a mere absent of disease, but health is a complete mental, physical, and social wellbeing." You got it?
Then, digest it.

Ok, that's all for now guys. No matter what happen, just don't forget to smile. Smile secretes more serotonin, a type of Happy hormone.

Have a good day ahead! =)
