Electric Feel

She got the power in her hand 
To shock you like you won't believe.

A combo of blue and pink? Why not. Absolutely not for the faint-hearted, this look exudes confidence, but please, do me a favor and don't go to Sunday Mass wearing it.



Start with a light purple color on the inner corner of your eyes, working your way outwards and stopping halfway. Now apply a light shade of blue to the outer(or, distal, if you prefer medical terms) second half of your lid, then a dark blue on the outermost corner. As you can see, I chose to go beyond my lids for that winging effect. How I did just that, easy peasey: Scotch tape. Just put the tape onto your skin, just below the area where you want your eyeshadow to be. Swipe away, remove the tape, and there you have it, the perfect wing!

Finish the look by swiping black eyeshadow along your creases. :)

Eyes: Dreamgirl 4U2 Eyeshadow Quattro, Beauty Angel Palette(free from the Suesh workshop)
Lips: NYX soft matte lip creme in Addis Ababa

We made this not too long ago. And he made me post this. You filthy little shmuck. This is why I love you. Hihi.

The Lady Gaga Born This Way Ball Manila 2012

I first heard Lady Gaga while watching Gossip Girl, back in 2008/2009. It was during the White Party, when Serena kissed Nate(OMG Nate. Making my googly eyes again) to make Nate's girlfriend jealous. Watch it here. Being the music lover that I am, I instantly fell for the song and looked for the title like a madwoman. It was the song Paparazzi sang by some artist called Lady Gaga. I never knew she would make it big. Now people are going nuts for her and paying a gazillion bucks for her concert tickets.

Lady Gaga's truly an artist. Yes she's weird and wears otherworldy clothes, YES she may be worshipping some other god and some of her music may suggest that, and her unorthodoxy may seem off to other people, but hell(no pun intended), why focus on that when her music actually encourages confidence and a sense of self-worth?

This was the highlight of summer vacation. I went with my mom, sister and cousin for the second night of The Born This Way Ball last May 22nd, and I'm telling you, Lady Gaga's brilliance is beyond crazy. Let the photos do the talking. Sadly though, they're not of great quality.
Le outfit.

Le sister's outfit. Loving the unique necklace!

The crowd was this huge.

Whilst singing "Hair", after stating her love for individualism. Holla, gay bestfriends!

Paws up! Certified Little Monsters!

This was weird, in a good way.

Owned Lower Box like yeaaaah.

That night we felt as free as our hair

Sorry, but the photos are random in order. They were taken from different cameras.

What's frigging lucky is that, we originally paid for the Gen Ad tickets but, drumrolls if you please, we got transferred to Lower Box, right beside the stage, practically the best seats in the house! My cousin almost cried with delight. My favorite part was when she performed Judas and You and I. Lady Gaga singing Judas made the crowd go, well, gaga. Singing it felt so liberating! The You and I part was just as entertaining. Remember what I told you about learning the You and I choreography? HAH! I danced and sang like no one's there to watch and listen. This is by far the best show I've ever been to.

I'll always be a fan, Mother Monster!

Live long and prosper,

Seems expensive, yet expressive

Unleashing the color junkie in me, once again.

Here are some photos of Scarlett Johansson at the Mango Fashion Awards 2010.


Now for a closer look at her makeup:
As you can see gold + charcoal colored eyeshadow and the black eyeliner bring out the color of her eyes. I have brown eyes and from what I've researched, the colors blue and purple can really accentuate them.

Okay. My turn.





Was I able to achieve Scarlett J's makeup? Err, not quite, but okay enough. My gold's less pigmented, eyeliner less out there, and the lipstick I wore was paler. But considering my photos' quality, I have done a good job.

Eyes: e.l.f 100 palette, Majolica Majorca Lash Gorgeous Wing Neo mascara, Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel liner in black

Lips: NYX round lippie in Louisiana(If you're wondering why the lippie looked pale, it's cos I only swiped a bit using a lipstick brush. Louisiana's actually a warm fuschia in color)

The ever trusty photo collage (an excuse of vain people who cannot be content with one photo to put their photos together so they won't look too vain. Or so they think.)


Live long and prosper.

P.S. After 4 years of being blonde and shizz, I've finally dyed my hair black. My hair's originally dark brown but heck, Morticia Addams all the way, baby. All the way.

Garage Glamorous

Took inspiration from Lady Gaga's song, Paparazzi. I'm so excited for her concert next week I can barely sit still! 
Without eyeliner
Err, not sure why my hand's placed on my face like that



Eyes: e.l.f. eyeshadow palette - I used the colors pink, purple, and eggplant(yes, you heard it right). I swiped pink on the lids, purple on the outer v's, and eggplant on the bottom of the lids, right above the lash lines. Blend really well! It doesn't matter how long it takes, cos blending's the key to pretty eye makeup! Don't forget to put a light colored eyeshadow on top and on the inner corners of your eyes. 

Lips: But of course, MAC Viva Glam Gaga lippie

I suggest not putting too much eyeliner on cos it might conceal the eggplant colored eyeshadow. :)


Live long and prosper.

Suesh Makeup Workshop 2012

So last Saturday(May 12th) my good friend Tricia and I headed to ATC(Alabang Town Center) for Suesh's makeup sesh. We originally planned to reserve slots for the workshop at their branch in Greenhills(which has a bigger and prettier studio) but we were too late, the slots were already full, so we had no choice but to go for the Alabang branch. It was a good thing though, since it's been years since we last set foot in ATC, thus we were pretty much excited to explore the place once again.

We chose the Basic Workshop, which turned out to be, well, basic. Nevertheless, I learned some new techniques. It was not at all useless, given that I've already practiced makeup long before attending the workshop(thanks to YouTube videos!). It was well worth it, and it was so much fun playing with my new brushes! I settled on the all-black 16-piece toolkit which came with different-sized eyeshadow brushes, the dome brush, a flat top angled brush, and blush and powder brushes, among others. It doesn't have a foundation brush, but oh well, I won't be using it anytime soon. Our teacher, Suzzane Tan, had been awesome. Here's her profile posted on Suesh's Multiply site(http://suesh.multiply.com/):

Suzzane holds Certificates on Chief Trainer’s Training in Skin Care and Cosmetology from 2007-2009 in Tokyo, Japan, as well as a certificate of Cosmetology in the Center of Aesthetics Studies (CAS) in 2006.  She is the current Chief Makeup Artist and Marketing Manager for one of the top 3 Japan makeup brands.  She regularly holds training for Corporate Image enhancements and you can see her work on print magazines like Cosmopolitan, Metro, Mega, Lifestyle Asia, etc.

She may seem intimidating but she's actually really nice and approachable in person. And she's very pretty, too. :)

Here are the pictures I took from the workshop! Enjoy browsing!

Oh I just love our printed bottoms!

Me and the beautiful Tricia sans makeup

The package comes with a free palette! How neat is that!

Miss Suzzane Tan, who happens to be the cousin of Tric's loving boyfie, was the one who taught us the how to's.

Before and after pics!

Went to eat at a Jap resto called John and Yoko(HOMG, this resto's named after two of my favorite people in the whole entire universe!)

Behold, animal skin printed chairs! Just fab.

I love the combination of Aztec and Leopard prints! Unlikely, but, it looks real good!

 That's a rap! We shall be opting for the Advanced Workshop next year! Ipon muna! Hehe.




Live long and prosper.
