LOL..
This is just to store some fun memories!

I'm such a dork.  I love Ryan Seacrest and look what happened today!
I was listening to his morning radio show and on my way to the office i mentioned how much he loved PSY's Gangnam Style - and not only did he reply, but retweeted me. :p



Here's his simplistic reply.. XD





Nobody at work was excited about this.. :/

But, nonetheless - Yay!!! I'm still pretty starstruck about this! ^___^*
Have you guys had any small interactions with celebrities?

Hello everyone,

long time no post!

This video has taken me about a month to finish up on the editing. I don't know why, but there are videos that zoom by in the editing stage, and some - like this one - that take FOREVER to edit.  But nonetheless, I've finally finished editing with this one.  This is actually a requested look from one of my subscribers named Lea.  She asked if I could do the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2012 fashion week makeup.




these are the reference pictures she sent me.



Here are some common traits I noticed right away.

- Fresh and glossy looking porcelain skin.  (( I'm sure not every model has perfect skin, so that could be easily manipulated with makeup! I give a lot of credit to concealer!! ))
- Super thick false eyelashes. (( check! that's something easily done with falsies ))
- Neutral / baby nude-ish glossy lips. 
- Massive highlighting (( tip is to make it look AS NATURAL AS POSSIBLE. ))
- No bronzer or contouring. (( Just stick with highlighting to keep that baby-face, fresh look. ))
- Minimal eye makeup. 
- Defined brows. (( But nothing like thick K-POP brows, you want them defined.. not super thick. ))




Okay, so with all that in mind, I decided to embark on a seemingly difficult journey.  The reason why it was kind of difficult for me was the crease part.  I don't have defined creases like most of the models, which is a huge disadvantage for this look.  Instead of a soft brown color to accentuate the crease, I decided to take on a stronger brown with a lot of red undertones to fake a crease.  I think red undertones make the surrounding skin color look a bit pale and fresh (contrast to yellow undertones), which will keep the look in the realm of the "fresh look" we are trying to go for. However, be aware that too much redness could make your eyes look irritated! Moderation is always something good to stick to. ;)

Other than that, I don't really like pulling my hair back.. so, I've skipped that step, but please do if you have a cute forehead! :)

Hope you guys enjoyed the video!!

Hi everyone,
I just wanted to share something non-beauty related with you guys today.

I received a package in the mail from one of my viewers (her name is Joanne :), and I thought it was really cute!

It's the Three Wise Penguins!! See no evil, speak no evil, hear no evil!! (I know..the order is kind of messed up in my picture).
It's originally three wise apes, but I love how Joanne gave a twist to it :)


Aren't they so cute? I was really impressed and awed at the talent Joanne has! Thank you so much!
I was searching the web for a good monkey version, and ran into so many versions of this saying!
(All of the below images are from various websites via Google image search)
