Review: Kate Designing Eyebrow Powder

I used to believe that having thin eyebrows will make me look pretty. But, it’s not. For years, I am stuck with my thin eyebrows, thanks to my adventurous side of shaping it myself. Now, I am trying very hard to get its original shape, but, they refused to grow back after being denied existence for years. LOL. I tried putting coconut oil on them, but seems like I have to wait ages before I can finally see the result so at last, I decided to give an eyebrow powder a shot.

Now, I cannot live without it. I feel totally incomplete when I am not using my Kate Designing Eyebrow powder. It’s my first eyebrow powder ever, so, I cannot really compare it with other brands. But, I do believe that they give out similar result, aren’t they? :)


My before and after eyebrow powder

I love how easy it is to apply this thing; I just fill my eyebrow with this powder, no pencil, no mascara. It has 3 different shades to choose from, with free brush. Very convenient especially for someone who are always in a rush, like me. :p

Trust me; I am still an amateur when it comes to makeup. But, for someone who is still learning, I think I did quite a great job on my eyebrow, aren’t I? HAHA…

Reception Highlights (Traditional Wedding)

So, here’s the summary of my cousin’s wedding reception in Ranau last month. Pictures will never be enough to narrate the whole story, eh?

This video summarizes pretty much everything that happened on that day; it's beautiful! :) That's why I always love watching wedding videos, it never goes wrong. Oh, by the way, this is another production of the Kastumized crews; so, feel free to contact them if you too want something like this on your big day! :)

Panau Ceremony (Traditional Dusun-Bundu Tuhan Wedding)

I always love a wedding…It’s the only time my family and I can gather as a whole, other than Christmas. But the works we have to do to organize it, is beyond tedious. I even became sick a day after the event. No, I’m not complaining. Not that I did much though, because my family is so big we don’t even have to lose any sleep. My point is, I get sick so easily these days, I too don’t understand why.

Anyway, my favourite part of a wedding is of course the traditional food, serunding tuhau is a must!– arghh, who can resist?? and the traditional wedding. The Panau Ceremony as we call it. I did post about it before, but I was so emotional a few months ago that I deleted most of my posts. LOL.

Gong is played to tell that the ceremony has started...

The elders will recite the 'tondiandi' (wedding poetic poem) first...

After that, the groom will choose his lovely bride amongst these covered women. Heheheh... we'll never make it easy.. If the groom choose the wrong woman, he'll be given penalty. Usually, he'll have to drink the tapai or lihing (Rice wine).

And finally, the bride and groom will eat traditional delicacies together. And people can go merry! :D

Well, being me, I only know about the fun part. Don’t ask me to explain about this Panau ceremony academically because I really can’t do that hahaha. But yeah, being me, I am so good at finding resources (the only way you can survive college life…pffttt); you can read my cousin’s post about this Panau ceremony HERE..

….and I made a video about this ceremony a year ago for fun (I recorded it during my other cousin's wedding), I think it’s good enough to give you idea what Panau ceremony really is.. :) Enjoy!
