Last day of being 15

Time sure flies fast... I'm going to be 16 real soon...

My 15 years old life has been pretty okay. Looking back, I think I've learned a lot of stuff and have grown more mature. Mostly mentally growth though. Hehe (^^;)

Actually I really miss being 15. I don't think I'm ready to be 16 yet but still I have to cope with the age right? Hopefully I'll have a good 16 years old life ahead. (^^) I can't see what will happen in the future but let's take the past as a lesson and move forward.

Somehow, I'm not very excited for my birthday like I used to be. It just seems that it's a figure of measuring age to me.

I know most people cherish their birthdays and would act as if the whole world has to bow to them on that day. (^^;) But for me, I would like to thank God for letting me live well for the past 15 years. It sure has been meaningful.

Seeing how much I've changed this year does motivate me to be better. Not just in terms of make up and blogging, but I want to have better qualities like better time management, obey to my parents, learn to be not so self-centered and to love others more.

Hopefully by the time I read this post next year, I have changed for a better person then.

Dear 16 years old me, have you been a good girl? I hope you did. I hope you did better than when you're 15. Always remember to be grateful for everything that happened as things happen for a reason. Be thankful to God and people around you. Always look at the positive side of things and be happy. (^^) And as you have told yourself when you were 15, your dream is to make everyone happy and help others to achieve their hopes. Never to feel jealous about others, as jealousy is a sin that you told yourself that it must not be in your thoughts. Understand others before you judge them, stand in their shoes and feel what they feel, and help them if you can. I hope you still remember these thoughts when you were 15. (^^) And again, Happy Birthday.

Halloween Look: Kyary Pamyu Pamyu


Here's the last look for this Halloween! I didn't create this one but I copied instead. Hehehe...

But still, it's this very special look of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu's single, Moshi Moshi Harajuku. The key point of this look is that drawn on mouth. At first I thought it was photoshopped on until the other day during the Foruchizu meet up I heard someone saying it was drawn on. So I thought maybe I can draw it on too. Haha!

Before starting the tutorial, I must say that this look looks pretty freaky and ridiculous for everyday look. But that's why Halloween's about, isn't it?

For the eyemake, it's pretty simple since the colours are very light. First you want to highlight your brow bone and the inner corners. I used Vanilla by M.A.C.

Next, apply Cork by M.A.C or any other light brown eyeshadow onto your eyelids and half of your bottom eye area.

Next line your eyes with a liquid eyeliner and extend a little bit at the ends.

Lastly, apply false eyelashes. As Kyary Pamyu Pamyu has point eyelashes in the look, I try to use one that is similar to it and customised the bottom lashes to resemble the one she has.

For top false eyelashes, I used the one I got from NHK Tokyo Kawaii TV but you can use any point type lashes. As for the bottom lashes, I combined Canmake No.13 and Dolly Wink No.6. I used three Dolly Wink lashes at the outer corners.

At this point, you can either stop or continue with that freaky mouth. Either way, remember to blush on orange blush on the apples of your cheeks. If you stop here, you can apply a nude pink lipstick and lipgloss.

But, if you are in for something fun, read on as I'll show you how I did the Kyary Pamyu Pamyu drawn on mouth. (^^)

First, you want to conceal your original lip colour. You can either use a lip concealer, normal concealer or a nude lipstick.

Next, start drawing the inner shape of the 'lip'. Use dotted lines if you are not confident to be able to draw it perfectly at one go. Also, have a picture of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu as reference while you draw.

It's ok if you accidentally drew out of line. Just remove it using a Q-tip and a make up remover or conceal it.

Then, draw the outer 'lip'.

Next, you want to add in the 'teeth'. Just draw it following the reference picture.

To fill in the white colour of the teeth, you can use a white pencil eyeliner or if you don't have it like me, you can fill it in with white eyeshadow. Using a lip brush, dampen the brush to pick up more colour. This will intensify the effect when applied too. Just go over for a few layers until you achieve the opacity you want.

Fill in the 'lip' with a magenta lipstick. I didn't have that colour do I used a dark pink colour. Looks fine, don't you think so? And there, the comparison between my take and the original look.

And that's it! Have fun with it! And of course make funny faces since that's one of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu's signature look. (^^)v

Do leave me comments on this look. I'm really looking forward to it. Hehe

See you soon!

Halloween Look: Sweet Angel


Finally posting up the second look for Halloween. There'll be one last one soon. (^^)

So after the previous look on Sexy Devil here's the opposite of that look, Sweet Angel.

For this look, I want to create a clean, innocent, gentle and kind look just like an angel. (^^)

For eyebrows, try to draw them as straight as possible for that innocent puppy eye look.

Using Sugarwhite by M.A.C, apply it all around your eye area. Both top and bottom. Then blend it out so that there isn't any harsh edges.

Next, apply Antique by M.A.C on the outer corners of your eye. Both top and bottom too. Blending it into the white and also blending it outwards to soften the look.

For highlighting, take Phloof! by M.A.C and apply onto your brow bone, center of your eye and the inner corners. This helps brightening your eyes while creating a 3D illusion.

Using a brown eyeliner, line your eyes and wing it slightly at the ends. Then line 1/4 of your bottom eye area.

Curl lashes and apply false lashes. I used a straight type eyelash for both top and bottom. Try to keep it as natural as possible. If you have brown false eyelashes, use them as they'll look even more natural. (^^)

For the rest of the look,

Apply pink blusher onto your cheeks. I used Rose Quartz (as usual (- -)) by M.A.C. Then, highlight your cheek bones using some glittery eyeshadow or highlighter. For me, I used Sugarwhite by M.A.C. You can try using a purple blusher or eyeshadow to brighten up your complexion. I used Digit by M.A.C.

As for the lips, choose a nude pink colour as it'll create a sweet look. (^^)

And you're done!

I rarely take photos from the lower angle but since my hair is poofy in this look, I could do that without my face looking big. Haha!

Do you like this look? (^^;)

I'm still rushing to clear off delayed posts. It's clearing off quite fast so hopefully I have time to post other interesting stuff too. Hehe.

However, do request for any tutorials as I might be able to do them during the year end holidays. (^^)

Well then,

Good Night!
