My Everyday Look

Hi all ! Here's a little tutorial of how I do my everyday/go-to makeup routine. 
In class while making this post. I'm so hungry..

So I already applied my moisturizer on. Concealed under my eye, around my nose and mouth area and forest of pimples on my forehead. Powered those areas to keep them in place. 
My eye. my nose is so huge and distorted...
Lined my brows with a drugstore pencil. I think it was a eyeliner pencil 
Using my NYX white shimmering pencil, I proceed to hilight the inner corner and bottom lash line.
Crazy eye bag right there.....
My right eye looks brighter and less tired right?
Now taking Maybelline Eyestudio gel and my angled brush....
I lined my bottom waterline and slightly wing it out (since it is waterproof gel)
ewww eye bags...
Now I lined my upper eye lid and connected it with the little wing I made
Right eye is lined while the other is not ! 
Take le blush and proceed to brush up cheeks to a healthier color
(I was sick for the whole week so I look sickly gahhh)
Curled lashes and applied Lancome Hypnose Doll Lashes on le lashes
(Got this for free when I went to see Michelle Phan at Fashion Night Out (: )
Finishing touch! Smeared on some nude lipstick ! 
Volia ! Finito ! 
Camwhore 1
Camwhore 2
Ugly camwhore. Yeeeeeeee

If you had been following me for the past let's see... -counts- UGH SO MANY MONTHS AGO, I am deeply sorry I haven't been posting much (at all) as I wanted to... I was going through a storm of emotions to summarize it up and I didn't own a camera (past posts I used my sister's).

So I decided to just use my crappy webcam camera since God knows when I'll ever get the chance to buy one (since I am a starving artist..) Be prepared for some posts !

Update: My hair is more ashy now after dying it 2 times with a brunette color :x

Trying to make my hair all poofy. Fail. (I have thin, non-voluminous hair -cries-)

MOTD- Eyepencils

Hey there beautiful ladies! As I promised, here's a post on my makeup of the day :) Simply made using only pencils and lip balm

I used Neutrogena 3-in-1 Concealer for eyes in Light 10. This actually lasted me a year so far but it's going to expire next month :( This contained 0.37 oz(10.4g) of liquid. When I first bought it, I thought it would last me a month but to my surprise, this wonderful product provided lasting concealment to this day. I concealed my dark circles (I have not been getting enough sleep lately so this is a must for me to have on whenever I go outside!)

I used a drugstore eyebrow pencil in natural taupe with a brush at the other end. I love the easy applying from this but I hate the fact you can't un-twist the pencil ( I sometimes twist up too much of the pencil and end up squishing it when I put the cap on ...) 

Using drugstore eyeliner pencils, I lined my top and bottom eye with the brown first then lined the upper waterline with black. This was to prevent smudging if I did it the other way around. Also I used the black to line the bottom from the end to the mid of the eye. Taking the white liner, I simply made small strokes under my eyebrow where the brow bone was.Then I smudged it to give it a subtle hint of shine. 

Alright I know this eye look can't be finished without the mascara BUT i had a reason to not put it on. My eyes were kinda dry today so I figured I was going to use eyedrops and mascara would just be ruined from the drops; making me look like I'm PMSing. 

Finish up with EOS lip balm! I love this balm since it hydrates my lips and it comes in a cute ball-like packaging. My lips stay nice and smooth for the whole day with this baby on ;D  

So there you have it, my very first makeup post. I'm planning the next one to be more of an intense eye makeup look. Reason why is that my homework for one of my art classes is to paint a self-portrait and my teacher suggested to get a look down if we wanted. I have something in mind and I hope it goes out well ><;;! 

....So I'm just gonna leave this here ... :)
