Hola, Brolas!

Heya, sorry for no updates this week. I was a bit anti-computer during my Thanksgiving break
(happy belated thanksgiving!).

I'm about to watch that Britney Spears documentary, she seems lonely. How sad.. You would think she was Jesus with all the hype around it? Either way, I heard she's doing a concert next year and I'm definitely going. Her latest album
Circus is kinda wee-zeak. I love "If U Seek Amy" aka the "F.U.C. K. me" song from the album but Black Out was really her best. ANYWHO....

This is a rushed FOTD because it wasn't neat and I experimented a bit with the colors as well, hope you all enjoy either way :].

Not my favorite but wearable.
Lately, I've been doing a lot of nude/beige colors with shimmer in the inner corner eyes. Then just a good winged black liner, lots of mascara and a really nice pink-flushed out blush for a glam-natural look. It's been my go-to look. I might take a photo of it one day but my camera doesn't pick up nude shades accurately... so I've been putting it off.

Oh, and I was practicing makeup looks on my friends. One of them (the bday girl) is really picky about what she wants to wear. She wants a dark look (think pink and black smokey) and on her skin-tone (very white, LOL), it's way too heavy and she doesn't like my more flattering/natural (think peach and brown) look I did for her. I'mma have to keep convincing her. Haha. So that's it for now.

Later,

Experimental Bright Blues FOTD!

Oh my loves, sorry no update this week. I was seriously on stress mode with exams and essays due for school this week. Unfortunately, I didn't do so well in my exam for nutrition =[ I suck at memorizing stuff now - I use to be really good at sinking in information. Guess that's what happens when you stop reading for pleasure and get another hobby - makeup! Ha.

Anyways, so I wanted to play with my makeup so badly and now that my essay is done and over with - I decided to try out a look. It's a recreation from a photo I saw. I would post the photo but it in no way did turned out the same color/look as the chicks... so to less embarrass myself, I won't post it. Haha.

Oh yeah. So I got my Make Up For Ever HD Foundation sample and lemme say.... meh!
I don't think it's the best thing ever but it does do well in hiding those imperfections. Too bad the SA at Sephora sucked at matching my skin with the right shade. I initially was eyeing the #173 and was bit weirded off when she was picking out lighter shades and ended up sampling me #155. I know I go very white in winter but damn, not ivory! Thank Jebus I asked for the #173 because that totally matched me perfectly. Only thing I didn't like is that it sorta made me feel on the dryer side. I think I'll stick to my L'Oreal True Match foundation and Sally Hansen mix... don't fix what ain't broken.
