Big Dolly Eyes Makeup Tutorial

Hello! Sorry for not posting so much lately. I’ve been kind of… I dunno. But anyway. I figured I haven’t posted any tutorials for a while, so I thought it was time to make one ^^ This time a make up tutorial, with focus on big, doll-like eyes ~

The Tutorial:


You can click on the picture for a better view ~

I got the lower lashes from this seller on eBay. I like them!

Also wearing my blonde wig ^_^

Since I was trying to imitate Tsubasa’s makeup, I figured I might as well use her style as an inspiration for my look ^_^

My dress isn’t as pretty as hers, but I think it’s a bit similar ^^ I got mine from eBay some time ago.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the tutorial! ~

Tsubasa Masuwaka

Hello. Been a while again since I posted. I have been feeling a bit down lately… it just feels like there has been so many tragic events lately.. too much death. But oh, I don’t want to write about that here. Maybe someday, but not today. Today I’m going to write about a portrait I painted of one of my biggest inspirations: Tsubasa Masuwaka.

(bigger picture on my DeviantArt)

I don’t usually draw portraits, but when I saw a couple of my friends doing it, I got inspired. Made with Photoshop, about 6-8 hours of work. I know I didn’t get everything right (I really struggled with the hair etc…), but it was fun ^^

Here is the original picture:

Short Curly Wig – Sugar Honey – Review

Hello! So I bought yet another wig from eBay ^^;; But this one was also fairly cheap, $15.20 and free shipping! Here is the link to the wig! I bought the “Sugar Honey” color. If the link isn’t working I bought it from an ebay store called Cosplay Kingdom2012, and it’s a “Short Fashion Curly Wig”. but hopefully the link works ^^

How it looks with different lighting:

I haven’t styled this wig, because I really like it the way it is. I like the volume of the curls, and it has a nice color. Although I have to say that the color is a little bit bit darker than the one in the original picture. And it looks a bit weird with a strong flash, but I think that’s almost inevitable for synthetic wigs. Also, this wig has a much better fit than my other short style wig. My other wig is way too big, but this one fits perfectly.

This was the first time I bought anything from this seller, but I’m happy with the wig, and even though the shipping was free and they were shipping from China, it didn’t take that long for it to arrive. Took about 2-3 weeks.

Feedback!

Positive:
+ Nice color and lots of volume.
+ Great fit.
+ Free shipping!

Negative:
– The color is a bit darker than the original picture (but for me that’s not a big deal~)
– No hair net included ;_;

But over all a very nice wig for its price ^_^

Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream

Hello! I was in desperate need of a new foundation, so I decided to try this one: Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream - All Day Strong #1 Sheer Silky Skin. (wow that was a long name…) I bought in from this seller on eBay. Only $15.30 and free shipping! That’s way less than I pay for foundation in store here in Sweden. Since I have really bright skin I searched the web for the brightest foundation I could find (for an affordable price), and I came across this one from Korea.


(Photo by me, using a Sony DSLR A100)


First of all I love the packaging! Really cute. But it’s not very convenient for travel.. it’s rather big at 15 cm. But anyway, cute!


I also read that the white tube is more suitable for those who have oily skin (like me), so the #1 Sheer silky skin would help the skin to look more matte. And I think it matches my skin tone quite well! Although I do have a liiittle bit darker skin on my arms since they actually got a bit tanned (OMG HOW??) this summer (//∇//) But this foundation actually has SPF 30/PA++, so it works as a sunblock too. Which is good, since I read that you get more wrinkles more quickly when you expose yourself to the sun a lot O_O


Anyway, here is a picture of me with the bb cream foundation (left), and with no makeup at all (right). I have to say that it really covers up a lot! Although, since I have kind of bad skin (with some seasonal acne traces etc), I’m also using a concealer (from Viva La Diva) underneath. But I really love how the foundation brightens my dull skin, without having some weird looking undertone to it.


With full makeup ^_^ also, I’m wearing a new wig that I bought from eBay as well. gonna write a review on that too soon!

Positive:
+ It covers spots and brightens up my skin
+ It feels good, and I haven’t had any breakouts yet
+ UV Protection (SPF 30/PA++)

Negative:
– My skin feels a bit oily after wearing it for too long
– The tube is a bit too big for my makeup bag. but then again, you get more of the product, so it doesn’t really matter ^^

Summer 2012 Lookbook Video

Hello! errhh okay I know this is a bit silly, but I made a video Lookbook (//∇//) Since I’ve already been posting lots of photos of my outfits, I decided I would try filming them as well (or well, not me but my sweet boyfriend helped me ♥) Sadly I didn’t have the time to finish this before the summer, and now it’s already over ;_; but I decided to post it anyway ^_^

We’re not in any way professional film makers (which you probably notice if you watch the video haha), but we thought that since we’re already taking photos, might as well try filming ^^ we used a Canon EOS Rebel T3, and later I tried to edit the video a bit in After Effects (which I’m still trying to figure out how to use properly ^^;;)
