Planning + Studying + Working on a video

7 Mar

Oh… a post so late at night… I should be studying for my Japanese midterm tomorrow but I got so off-track!

Anyways… I finally got an Youtube idea going on through my head and since your first video that you put up on Youtube is very important I decided to start putting together a foundation video. Now there are lots of how to put on your foundation on Youtube already so I really shouldn’t be doing that sort of thing but thing is those people only show one way of many. So I decided to put together a makeup basic foundation routine based on what sort of sources an average person has and which technique is fast or requires some sort  of skills. Not going to go much in depth but I’m going to try to make it as professional as possible so it’s going to take some time…. if I calculate right then it should take about a month to put up that video. Yeah… a month and I’m not going to start filming just yet mainly because I just don’t have time… I now have respects for those people on Youtube who put up a video like everyday… crazy!!

Anyways… the photo of the day…

 
The question of the day is…  Am I winking or am I blinking?

Nightime Foxy look

28 Feb

It’s been a while since I’ve posted up a beauty makeup thing. So this is a neutral brown nighttime look… I should do a daytime look sometime soon. ^_^ Anyways, so here is the look:

 I look so white… O.O

So the products that I used are as following:

Face:

Maybelline Pure Makeup in Classic Ivory

Covergirl Fresh Complexion Concealer in no idea what shade

Physician’s Formula Organic Wear Loose Powder

Eyes:

Maybelline Quad in Chai Latte (all colors were used)

NYX Slim Eyeliner in Black

Joe Fresh Eyeshadow in Black (to set the eyeliner which has a tendency to smudge)

Covergirl Professional Super Thick Lash Mascara in very Black (as if I can get black enough)

Cheeks:

Joe Fresh Blush in Pink

N.Y.C. Bronzer in Sunny (discontinued by the way)

Lips:

Shiseido Perfect Rouge in Tender Sheer (sample size)

Hmmm… in the picture you can’t really tell that I have on bronzer and blush…. maybe I gotta pick up more product but I guess it was due to flash that the colors got washed out. That’s what happens when you go on a nightime look that isn’t really nightime…

Anyways, I am quite pleased with myself… I have gotten a lot better at putting on makeup and such so because of that I pat myself on the back. Hopefully I can get more colors and such so that I can try out different looks. The only colors that I actually have are white, black, browns, blues and one green color. Never done a smokey look…

Deals of the Week

22 Feb

Here are some of the deals of the week and these are the items that I picked up. I probably won’t have many of these posts as it does seem to be a bragging post that and the only things that I buy all the time is food. ^_^ So for those who live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada these deals are going to be held until this Friday which is Feb 26 and they are pretty good deals.

First up, I gotta mention the stores that I went to. The first place was Lemon Tree to get myself something you’ll see it later… then it was Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexall, and then Superstore.

The items:

The brushes are from Quo which is Shoppers Drug Mart makeup brushes… they even have their own line of makeup too! But anyways, those brushes were 40% off. So in total they were… let’s see… about $33CDN. If I bought it full priced it would have been $46CDN. Yeah… saved a lot of money.

From Rexall which is a chain of drugstores owned by Darrel Katz, also known as pharmaprix in some other Canadian places but what I actually got from there is the pressed powder which is N.Y.C. Translucent powder and the Maybelline Quad in Chai Latte. They were both 20% off and the total came to under $10. It wasn’t that much so compared to Shoppers I only saved about $3.

The last place that I went to is Superstore and they had a deal on Covergirl mascaras… not all of their mascaras but the professional and the exact collection. That and some crackers… hooray triscuits! They were 2 for $9.00 so I saved a lot there. Yippee! I’m excited to try them out. Both are in Blackest Black as my eyelashes are really… well being asian black.

So the special item that I got was this:

 This doll is a Momiji Doll. A pretty doll. Just for me. Her name is Rainbow she likes shopping, fashion, and long division. Just like me! There is only one place in Edmonton that sells these doll, I would very much like to get some more. Of course, ones that speak my personality. ^_^

Well, that will be it for today…. sorry for double posting.
