Improvement?

3 comments

Hello Cutie Pies!
I know I said this last time, but I'm terribly sorry that I haven't been posting much lately. Work has seriously been driving me nuts lately.

Post for Day 3 of my SF trip is all typed up and ready to go, but I wanted to post something a little different today!

I've really been keeping up with RuPaul's Drag Race lately (anyone else absolutely adore that show?!), and it always amazes me how gorgeous everyone's makeup turns out!
So inspired by those lovely girls, I decided to try and seriously get into contouring my face. I know it's a big deal in the gyaru world how your makeup looks, and many girls get comments/questions of "Work on contouring!", "Why don't you contour?", etc etc.

Now I'm not master of makeup, but I wanted to show how I've been doing mine lately.
I guess I've kinda turned it into a tutorial?
I also know that no people's face are exactly the same, so you may need to do differently with your face shape!

With just base foundation/eyes done

Contour mapping

I use Too Faced "Snow Bunny" palette~
The blue on the contour map is a mix of 2 & 3. ^^

Ta da!



Lashes used are from Daiso and lenses are Princess Mimi Almond Brown.
And of course, I was wearing my lovely new headband that I won in Ande's giveaway!

So what do you lovelies think? Improvement on my part or no?

SF Trip day 2: More shopping!

6 comments

Hello Sweetie Pies! Sorry that it's taken me so long to post this

This week has been really damn stressful, so my mind has seriously been racing. The thought of blogging kinda went out the window for a bit. @.@ Sorry!!

Meh, enough about my shitty week! You all wanna know about my SF trip!

So! Day 2! Woo hoo!

More shopping really~ not much of an eventful day

The weather was warm and sweet: I believe it was about 70 degrees again~ I wore a cute Springy outfit -- who doesn't wanna look cute while shopping?

My mom and I went to Kinokuniya and wow! I didn't know there were so many different little shops and restaurants. I seriously thought it was gonna be a giant bookstore; I was pleasantly surprised~!

One of the little shops had tons and tons of character goods. Crazy amounts of Rilakkuma/Korilakkuma goodies! Now I love Rilakkuma, but the prices were kinda steep... they really took advantage of the Rilakkuma-adoration. So no kkuma for me~; instead, I got a big pack of stationery and Kutusushita Nyanko pouchette!

Then it was off to the actual bookstore! They had an amazing amount of manga and even had a section just for yaoi and yuri. I found an odd book while in there... it appeared to be "how to draw yaoi sex scenes".

They had Moomin learning books, gyaru magazines, and GLBs too! I got Moomin comics (for my dad) and Strawberry Panic complete manga. It's an adorable yuri tale; love it~~

We pretty much spent the whole day in Kinokuniya, so we had to hurry off to DAISO once we were done. Luckily The DAISO shop was right near the hotel!

I was amazed at how large the store was, and all the prices amazed me as well! I got a whooole lot of goodies in there! Only some pictured here; the others are for a surprise later~

We were crazily tired after shopping around in DAISO, so we slinked back to the hotel to do some planning before bed. Wednesday was gonna be cray, baybay -- we were goin to the bay!

Also, I've heard around the grapevine that GFC could soon be no more!

I've added my Bloglovin' link to the sidebar, so please follow there. ^^
