Online Buy: URBAN DECAY BASICS

I was just so happy when I checked out “Stuff In Style” Instagram and Facebook accounts, chose the item I want, and settled payment because the package arrived the following day!  Honestly, I didn’t expect it to arrive that soon since my payment pushed through late in the afternoon and delivery usually takes 1-3 days.  And so you can just imagine my delight when I received the package.

What did I buy?  It’s URBAN DECAY’s BASICS eye shadow palette.  Why I bought it?  Hmmm, let’s say being a stay home mom got me a little bored 🙂  And I was just too weak to resist URBAN DECAY and the ease of buying online.

Without further ado, I opened the most awaited package…

Opening the package

Of course I wasn’t able to contain my excitement that I immediately used it and tried it out.  Having nude shades, I opted to go for a make-up look that is suitable for daytime or when you will go to office or a corporate meeting.  I used a very light coverage foundation, as my skin is not really used to foundations.  I also didn’t have concealer here as I’m not really a big fan of it 🙂  Forgive my eyes’ puffiness for I sleep really late.  I believe no concealer can do the trick here hahaha!  For finish, I put a very light pink shade lipstick from Maybelline.

Using URBAN DECAY BASICS Eye Palette

So, what’s my verdict of the eye shadow palette?  FABULOUS!!!  It blends really well, although on me, the shades became a bit darker when applied.  Happy that it gave my money’s worth 🙂

The One in a Million Times I’m Fashionable

THIS IS A LATE POSTING.

I just wanna share what I wore during my most recent make-up gig at a client’s wedding (Dada and Jay’s July wedding).  The story of this outfit is quite simple.  After our pre-nup shoot for the said client, my friend/partner Lucky and I went to Shangri-la Plaza Mall to supposedly meet up my husband.  We were to watch Pacific Rim with his brother, but when I got to the mall, I received a message from his saying the movie date is cancelled because he’s got a fever.

So my friend and I just texted another friend, who to our surprise, happened to be in the same mall with his other friends.  And so we met him and went for a short shopping, burning the fruit of our labor (we were luckily paid in advance by our client).

While inside “The Ramp” mall, I saw this black skirt and instantly fell in love with it.  I automatically asked the friend we met since he is a fashion stylist.  I was having second thought buying it because I was unsure if I could pull it off.  Dear stylist friend convinced me otherwise and suggested that I could wear it to the wedding date of our client.

On the day of the wedding gig, I wore it with a black top which I have.  It was a nice top with beads accent at the waist line.  I didn’t expect it to come out as a fashion hit!  Below is what I wore 🙂  What do you think about it?

Mega Fashion Crew Reloaded Go-see Outfit

20130709-081141.jpg

 

Here is what I wore and looked like when I went to the first go-see event to last June 29,2013.  It was the MEGA Magazine Fashion Crew Reloaded go-see for aspiring models, stylists, HMUA’s and photographers.  Details of this look on my Lookbook account: http://lookbook.nu/look/5095728-Redhead-Soft-Blazer-Abercrombie-Fitch-Fringed  HYPE IT and FOLLOW ME PLEASE! 🙂

That was the first ever go-see I attended and the first contest I ever joined.  The experience was indescribable!  I was tensed, excite, anxious, nervous all at the same time.  Though I didn’t expect to go pass through the 2nd screening, I was thankful all the same for knowing that other people find my work amazing.  Well, I was kinda expecting to get cut after the 2nd screening after realizing that I had an erroneous answer during the panel interview.  That I realized the day after the go-see.  Oh well, it’s not for me this time.  Good thing is that I had a taste of how competitions like that go.

The evaluation on me was that I am a raw talent with so much potential in terms of hairstyling and make-up.  So from now on, it’ll be gearing up for stuff like that.

Smile always!
