Where have I been?

This post is long overdue and as some of you may have noticed, I have been a bit MIA lately.  I sincerely apologise and no I have not stopped blogging or abandoned this blog.  I've simply been really hectic with juggling work and trying to do a portfolio and prepare for exams and what not with Makeup school all going on.  I'm in my final weeks and things are seriously heating up for me.  I'm a bit behind schedule so I've been busting my ass really hard to get a move on.

I shall probably not be posting any more update until at least after 10th December (When my course is finished), so please be patient and I've got stuff lined up waiting to be edited and shared with you guys.  After the 10th December I will also start building a blog that revolves around my professional makeup journey and what not so keep an eye out for that.

Thanks to all my followers who had been so nice and supporting and thanks to the all the new followers for coming and reading my blog too.  I can't believe I'm nearly at the 100 mark!  It is so exciting since I never ever even thought I would ever get this much when i first started this blog.

Thanks to those who wrote me emails asking if I was well.  Very much appreciated for your concerns about my health :D

For now I shall take my leave and get back to my short hellish moment, see you guys all soon after the 10th December! 

So until then please all take care :)

Fun Doll Makeup for a Kid’s Party

Hey guys haven’t posted in a bit and I’ve missed blogging but I guess my portfolio is really dragging me in deep with lots of stuff to do. Recently classes have been getting a bit more stressful as we begin doing full face makeup without any guidance from the teacher. Pressure really gets to you, but I learnt I work with it as last week I did my first full face makeup by myself and to think the class got the time mixed up that my group lost 20 minutes of our time!!! I was completely stressed and I was running around like crazy grabbing makeup and putting it all onto my classmate’s face. The true feeling of having to work under pressure was actually a scary experience but I think I’ll be able to do it again in the future. I’ve learnt a lot and I’m glad I did well despite losing that much of my time.

Anyway in the future I’ll be launching a new blog which would be strictly for my professional work so I hope in the future you would all support still :)

Now down to the recent fun look I did for a friend’s daughter’s birthday party. Costume no doubt for the little princess and the theme was Dolls and Soldiers. I thought I was going to turn up undressed but changed my mind and just wore a cute dress with funny exaggerated makeup. I laughed as I was doing it and I’m pretty sure my parents thought I was a bit on the crazy side that evening.

Foundation is one shade lighter than my skin tone

Stupid me forgot to take photos with the whole outfit and wig, so all photos shown are taken after I got home. That would explain the red eyes and the terribly messy hair. I was ready to get rid of the makeup and clean up before heading to bed.

I can’t remember what makeup I used exactly but all eyeshadow is from the 120 palette so I’m sure you guys can probably find and match it to the ones on my eyes. It’s just 2 shades of blue and a black and a little bit of the white shimmer one.

Eyelashes are from some cheap brand that a friend bought from eBay and shared with me when she gave up wearing falsies.  My lips are just a Lipgloss sample that Mschic sent me with my back order of the face canvas.  Blush used is a NYX one, a bright pink with major shimmer action going on in it!

Not so pretty :p

playing with the angle of the lights :p

With flash aka oily skin!

Anyway to finish off the post I took a photo of my Sunday cleaning and only realised then how much brushes I now own since I got a set from my makeup school I’m currently doing.

Green FOTD and Natural FOTD + Mini Self Photo shoot

Hi Guys!

I’m back to share some photos, because due to my busy schedule and tardiness I forgotten what exactly did I use for these two looks. I’m pretty sure you guys can substitute with similar colours.

Last Saturday I went out to dinner with some high school friends and did this green look. It’s nothing special but I thought it turned out pretty nice and definitely something wearable whether it is day or night.

Close up shot
It is just a combination of dark and light green and then a bit of gold in the inner corners.

Full Face shot

Half closed eyes

Close much?

Close up of both eyes

If you followed me I’m pretty sure many of you would know that I am now a makeup artist student and that I enrolled into Makeup School in late October.  Well I’ve been learning heaps and as practise I did a very natural/neutral makeup look and then kind of held my own photo shoot. 

It was pretty hard since I was the model and the camera man so some of the photos didn’t turn out all that nice. However since it was a practise to put what I’ve learnt in school to work, it was still a bit fun.

This is how the look turned out…

Now just some cam whoring to make it a bit more interesting :)

Second favourite shot
Thanks to all my followers be it you’re old or new, you guys make my day knowing that you guys are supporting me as I finally take off on my dream.  I can't believe i'm only 11 followers away from 100!  I never thought my blog would even ever get this much followers so I'm grateful each day.  I will try to update more often and share some small tips with everyone that I learn in school.

Have a great week everyone :)

October's Favourites

I know I haven’t been blogging as frequent as I use to and I apologise for that. I never thought makeup school would take up that much of my time and I can’t believe that my first ever portfolio is due in a matter of like 2 weeks. I’m freaking out and I’ve been sitting at my vanity doing face charts that just don’t turn out all that great.

Anyway I know this is kind of late but I thought I would still share my October’s Favourites with you guys.
