What I’ll paint on my canvas is up to me.

Make-up! Or my face as others like to call it.

When I think about it, its strange that this has become my “face”, my identity. Through my life I have met a handful of people who hasn’t recognised me without make-up. And I am not the kind of person who can’t go outside without make-up. I do it all the time. I just love dolling up, meeting the day with bright lipstick and long lashes. A way for me to just make my day better. Because it’s kind of a hobby for me, a routine I do in the morning in order to wake up, just like the first cup of coffee.

So maybe this is my “face” after all, the natural me is more like a starting point. A canvas. All the tools (make-up, brushes, lashes ect) are available, why not use them? Why is it such a bad thing to do in someones eyes? Just because I like it, doesn’t mean I judge you badly if you don’t. It’s like my view on vegetarism vs. normal diet. If you accept that I don’t eat meat, I’ll accept that you do. So if you just accept that I wear this kind of make up almost every day, I’ll accept that you don’t.

Simple isn't it?

Why do we always have to have opinions about what others should and should not do? Just let it be. Life gets easier if you do.

This is not what I originally intended to write about.

Just wanted to make a simple update about my favorite type of make-up, and then all these thoughts appeared. Well, this IS my favorite kind of make up. 2-3 different shades of brown eyeshadow, winged eyeliner, a bit dramatic looking lashes, orange/pink blushes and bright lips. Really bright-colored lips is becoming my favorite this season. But light shades is a good number second.

Gonna hit the gym soon, but I’m really tired so I’m afraid this workout is going to be slow and hard. My brain is telling me that I would just love to skip it, but I know I’ll feel much more energized and awake afterwards. Such a lovely effect of working out~

Its when you take your time it all becomes perfect.

I have noooo idea whats going on with my hand in that first picture. Just, no idea. And strange how when you put on make-up for nothing and it ends up becoming perfect. Why can’t I achieve this everyday? Might have something to do with the fact that this time I had all the time in the world to do it. Usually I just have 30 min, and I’m stressing around with making coffee and ect. Time is everything.

Something New: Bold with wine red colored lips~

[[BaseballJacket-BikBok//Top-Galstar//Shorts-H&M//overknees-BikBok//tights-LocalShop]]

Today my eyes where red and irritated and it led me to try a new style; Dark and bold lipstick and almost zero eye make-up. I used just skin colored eyeshadow, a bit of eyeliner and mascara. It’s usually the totally opposite with me. I like bold eye make-up and neutral/light lipsticks. Nice to try something different for once~

I also got to wear one of my favorites tops form Galstar, been ages since last time! Oh, and those lovely overknees with a little ribbon at the sides. So cute and elegant ~

Tiny joys in life: When someone surprise you with a gift!

This was totally unexpected, I am really grateful for it~ Somebody I know had recently been in London and came back with a gift even tho I didn’t ask for it. She asked me before she went it there was anything she could get me, but I just couldn’t come up with anything. Neither could I afford anything. Then when she came back she got two unique and beautiful sets of lashes~

The PaperSelf lashes is simply stunning! Just look at the butterflies and the deer at the end. Wonder when I’m going to use these, must be a special occasion!  I am so going to try the long ones next time I’m going out~

Which One Will I Use Today?

I can’t be the only girl with this issue in the morning. Which eyeshadow to pick this time? Or are you one that sticks to the same color, or minimalistic/natural look everyday? I’m certainly not, and I’ve started do grow tired of using grey/brown shades every day.

The problem is: it’s so easy to choose brown because it goes with everything, in contrary to purple, coral, green yellow ect. Sometimes I just want to go color block style, but that just too much – even too me.

Switching Out the Old and Used

Yes, today my order from E.L.F finally arrived.

I was close to using up my daily powder and primer. I was basically using a cuticle shaper to scrape up some primer from the bottle. We all know how dramatic it can be to run empty of something, if you don’t have anything to replace it with.

I also got a brow pencil, just like the eyebrow kit without the powder part, and another type of foundation as I find the previous type a bit to sticky.

p.s. I love how E.L.F has a double meaning for me, make-up and fan base.

Should the Eyeliner Go Up, Down or Straight?

Just a batch of make-up inspiration~!

Pictures not mine, found on Tumblr, Galstar and LJ~

I’m getting very confused by all the styles of make-up I want to do.

Some days I’m more inspired by gyaru, but others my littke k-pop/Ulzzang fan kick in. And other days I just get lazy because I can’t choose. Well, inspiration always help, and I think T-ara and their song Lovey Dovey spiked my interest in doing more heavy makeup again~

I love wearing heavy eyemakup wether is monday, friday og saturday. Just love it. And I am a really big fan of draging the size of the eye outwards with the eyeliner wether its gyaru-ish or more kpop inspired.

Think I’ll purchase some new lashes to get me going again.

Because I have this issue with my upper lashes being short and my bottom lashes too long. Hence why I never use false bottom lashes.

Cute, Scary or Dark?

There’s going to be a halloween party this weekend, and I’m going to attend to it. If there isn’t anything that would stop me from it. I love dressing up, and this year I’m going to be a doll. A porcelain doll.

 The question is; Cute, scary or dark?

I have been hunting for some good tutorials on YouTube, and I found these;

Cute:

Scary:

Dark:

So what do you think? I really really like the eyes on the last one~

Fill-up Order!

I can hear certain ppl saying "oh no, she didn't!"

But I totally did. Why aren’t we gals ever getting tired of spending money on make-up? Most of this is for filling up empty bottles and replacing old mascara that should be thrown away. The good thing about E.L.F is that when you go empty of something it doesn’t become a financial crisis because it blows your budget. You can easily afford fill-up orders.

What isn't fill-up is the two new shades of lipstick~

I love the nude color of the shade Natural Nymph, I’ve had it before, but it kinda got ruined about a year ago. It’s actually a wonder that I haven’t ordered a new one earlier, because I was quite down when it happened. I can finally have nicely nude lips again~

The red color, Royal Red, isn’t bright red but deep red with a hint of pink. I love it! I already have a deep red shaded lipstick and it can look quite brutal and hard sometimes. This shade will still give the dark look, but with a softer finish.

I also got me my standard foundation in a lighter shade~

Because I’m just not that tanned any more as I was during summer. Not that I actually was tanned, just a little sun kissed, but I’m not even that anymore! I have finally a shade that actually match my face. Now I don’t have to go being all worried if I have a visible difference from my face to my neck. I hate it. Can’t wait to try it out tomorrow!

I just love this song so much, Kim Hyun Joong is an amazing artist~
