Goodbye to 2010

Here are the things I will do to say goodbye to 2010, and to greet 2011. So first, I will do this tag that Rinny has given me and as well as an award

Here are 7 things about me
1) The final interview of the flight attendant post I have applied is coming in less than a week's time now, I'm soooo nervous!
2) Sorry, I shouldn't mention this one but this is a crucial fact that I think people should know if they get to the level that they know my name is that I'm a very easy-going person that won't mind it all, but it doesn't mean that I'm always comfortable with almost everything... I'm very forgiving and willing to give people another chance because we are all human beings who make mistakes BUT I will take back all the privileges I once offered if I was taken for granted

3) I used to work in the airline in Hong Kong... hehe, let me show u all this cute photo of me with my paw cushions, I used to wished that I could take the cushions to work, lol

5) My boyfriend and I dated for 7 years now, the day that we started together was 25th Dec 2003.
6) I'm totally obsessed with Kuromi stuff! My most wanted things of Kuromi at the moment are Kuromi ear-muffs and passport folder.
7) My bf is enjoying PS3, and both of us are playing Call Of Duty together lately.... lol

Then here's the questions being tagged by a2nl0v4u to answer....

Make up & Fashion Tribute for Holiday Glam

I will explain the make up & fashion tribute for holiday glam as simple as I can since the full demonstration is expected to be done in the youtube video uploaded.... I have done 2 make up looks and settled 2 groups of outfits ready for the subtle make up look & a more dramatic make up look to match along... So far, this is the way I interpreted the 1st make up look: shimmery in subtleness, the key colors needed for the eyes are "dark brown, hazel and gold" which is inspired by the latest copy of Choc, my favourite magazine, although the magazine has described the look as a seductive night look, I personally would like to take it as something subtle and use this look to suggest that smart-casual, OL party outfits or those who are expecting to something to wear for Christmas gatherings...
(the look I used for the subtleness and smart-casual/small Xmas gathering outfits)

(what I look like with the that make up on)
Here are the outfits I have suggested to go along with this make up look

Start with this leopard bodysuit and high-waist skirt, they are actually separate items but I was just doing the mix & match, pretty much something that I believe OLs would wear attending to Xmas gatherings or even for the sake of going to work in Winter in general... it's worth going for cuz u can always wear it anytime, anywhere and of course most importantly u can wear it more than once that u wont waste money

This is a cute smart casual jumpsuit, u will definitely see that I'm NOT always too girly to be truly, in fact, going for the dandy/boyfriend style is what I've been working on as well!  I would recommend it to girls of younger age, especially girls whom prefer less girly clothes... it's one of the best outfit I would list as the best to the holiday glams

hmm... depends on how simple u want urself to be! if ur the wild bt casual chic that wears a stylish top with , go for a top that has some special designs, this one im wearing is a gold metal halter neck one, believe me, I'm not wearing it juz because I found nothing interesting in the shop, I will explain the it in the video...

Wanna stay in the low profile or just expecting family gatherings? No problem- this top is actually a 2 in 1 top... in the video u will see tht I made it an off shoulder top in someways that the style won't be that boring, and it's a top u can do whatever u like with it... if ur expecting a little more effort with wearing this top, a thin belt around the waist would be suggested ;)

The dramatic glam look I've done was based on matching these lashes:

The main eyeshadow color combinations were Charcoal Grey/Gold/Purple

As for the outfits ready for the evenings, Christmas balls or a glittery celebration, here are the outfits I suggested here to go with more dramatic make up!
If u decide to have the dramatic make up more concentrated, look for a top that's impressive for the holiday glam with skinny jeans, this is a black based with some glitter/shimmery type of top! the rhinestone on the neck and the dramatic make up will save ur stress from looking for accessories.  I'm the type of person who's always too lazy for the accessories, if ur the same kind of person as me, then this top is definitely something u can go for

This dress is so so... didn't know why I picked up at the first place... lol...
My favourite dress! I love the ruffles & the design overall... not much to say, bt I hope it goes down to a dirty cheap price when Xmas sales approaches so I can buy it, muhahahaha
Wow, it would be great if I can wear that to a Chinese New Year party... more like 0__o

Don't forget to stay warm as much as staying glamourous!

I know I didn't have these make up looks to match along with the outfits to get you all to imagine the combination of outfit & make up looks will go well, even if it's not perfect, I believe it wouldnt go wrong badly in some extent, anywayz, hope u will all enjoy the video! Merry Xmas & Happy New Year!

Amanda Seyfried make up looks

It was some time ago again that I have received a request from Tiffany and her friends that they would like to see a make up look inspired by Amanda Seyfried, since I have the typical Asian facial features, another research is made for some time as well as due to moving house, I would like to apologize sincerely for the times she has waited, hopefully the outcomes and the makes of this video won't disappoint her at all... Again, I have made this Amanda Seyfried make up look video into 2 versions- Hollywood look on Dear John Premiere and Oscars look by Chanel.

As Amanda Seyfried does not go on to the heavy make up looks, I hope this is the video that will bring out the message that "Less Is More for the most expensive, glamorous-classy look"

Look 1:

  • Begin by waterlining the upper and lower rims of your lids with waterproof black eyeliner.
  • Then, apply a pure silver eye shadow from your lash line to your lid's crease.
  • Use a nude (or, for a more dramatic take, shimmering white eyeliner) to line under your eyes and in the inner vs.
  • Apply coats of black lengthening mascara to both upper and lower lashes.
Lips and Cheeks:
  • Apply a liquid luminizer to the apples of your cheeks and all along the tops of your cheekbones to create more definition, then sweep a peachy-pink powder blush across the apples of your cheeks.
  • For your lips, begin by filling them in with a nude lip pencil, then go over with a semisheer peach lipstick and apply dots of clear lip gloss to your cupid's bow and the center of your bottom lip.
2nd look (
Line your lids with a black eye pencil and then dust a pink-toned copper all the way around. Next, dust a shimmery beige on your upper lids from the crease up to the browbone. Then smudge a bit of dark gray shadow on the outer corner on the bottom and top, blending into the crease on the upper lid for shading.

However, I personally would recommend matte/lighter bronzers for that glowing looking skin just like Amanda Seyfried on this 2nd look and for the lips, she would tend to stick around the peachy tones to suit her glamourous blue eyes

This is another link I would recommend viewers for more information on Amanda Seyfried's make up looks or make up routine in general!
And since I am not very talented with hair-dos, this is the hair tutorial that I've found that I hope some of u will like it:

Anyway, these are my 2 versions of Look 1 and Look 2
Enjoy both videos of Amanda Seyfried's make up looks and also the one that I uploaded at the same time which is my outfit of the day out in the snow on 18th Dec 2010.  Don't forget to leave me a comment if you come by...
