As I was scrolling through all the different social platforms, I realised that there are countless outfit ideas, makeup looks and hair tutorials to pick up/learn from. I then thought, why not recreate outfits from whatever pieces of clothing that is already in my closet, and that is how I came up with this month's blog post... getting inspirations from the social media and recreate into an OOTD.
Looks easy but it took me an hour to get the makeup done ( probably due to my lack of 'experience' in this segment ).
Starting with the hair, I combed it ( tame my mane ) and started braiding it. Recently, my hair feels like Barbie dolls' hair and I don't even know how to describe it, kinda plastic-y... :/ and I am not sure if it's because of the shampoo that I am using or my screwed up sleeping routine or my daily routine.
On the same topic of 'hair', I cut my fringe, or rather my sister cut my fringe, and I quite like it because it made me look YOUNGER. Do you know how annoying it is to be stopped by credit card promoters because I look ' older than my age ' . I swear nobody stop me after I cut my hair!!!! :D unless I am wearing my working outfit ._.
Okay guys... It is just me or do my arms always feel SUPER tired and achy after tying my hair? Because my arms are always tired even if I did not spend much time doing an updo.
( tying one braid got me like... )
And of course there is an interruption ( there are always interuptions ), the phone was ringing and I have to stop what I was doing and pick up the phone.
After the phone call, I finally went back to braid the other side.
'Hello from the other side... I must have called a thousand times... '♫
After one song, I started doing the makeup...
Applied CC Cream on my entire face with a damp sponge ( I learnt it from Youtube, it supposedly should make your foundation/base look super natural, well... I not too sure about that because I don't see any difference with damp sponge or fingers ).
With an eyeshadow brush, I used a pink with grey undertone color to apply on my entire lid...
And used a taupe color on my outer V and did some blending work. Don't forget to drag some eyeshadow down to your lower lashlines!
Then using a white eye pencil, I colored my lower half lashline, brow bone, inner corners and upper half eyelid and used my finger to blend it.
Gotta fill in the brows and comb through it.
As I said earlier, I do not own any fake eyelashes so I substitude it by lining my eyes with a liquid eyeliner. Honestly, I don't like using eyeliners because I always screw up the entire makeup look by accidentally drawing uneven lines or drawing out of place.
Let down my fringe and I am done!
For the outfit, I am wearing grey stripes instead of black because mine is a crop top and I don't have the courage to show people my huge tummy. I really respect people who show their stomach like how much did you exercise to get this result? and I appreciate your courage.
In conclusion me + stomach = NO NO!
Then I am just posing randomly because this is the only time I wear full makeup and dress up, so why not make full use of it and take as many photos as possible -because I look like I got ran by a car 99% of the time ( randomly adding numbers again ).
I feel that this entire look is very suitable for school or a casual day out. But if you find the makeup look too much, then just simplify it with mascara and eyeliner. Alrighty, that's all I've got for this blog post. Ciao!
