Winter Outfits 2014

^Out fit post for Winter of 2014!
Not a lot... mostly because I am running late and when I get home I am too tired to take pictures of what I wore hahahahah
I will try to do better for Spring. /crosses fingers

Winter is VERY VERY COLD, someone who lived more than 2 decades of her life in a tropical country was very unaccustomed to all the thick layers but it was fun.
Scarves, mufflers, hats, gloves, jumpers, thick coats and all <3

Been dressing in a more otona-ish way lately.





Missed being all girly, a bit of kawaii gyaru style.

Since, it is Japan, I decided to play around for a bit, too. KUMA! ⊂(ο・㉨・ο)⊃

KONATA IZUMI Cosplay

^I love Lucky Star!
hahhahahaha
Izumi Konata has been known as the leader and goddess of all otakus.
I loved that about her and wanted to portray that side of her.
One lazy day, z3LL came to visit me and we just had the shoot at my place, we were bored.


An hour of make up and clothes pulled from my closet, some rummaging through my stuff and rearranging of the furniture and we were all set!

The shoot ended quickly as we both got tired trying to make my house shoot worthy, it was late and frankly the lighting was bad..

With all my otaku and cosplay stuff, I thought it would be easy to pull off my vision but we kinda failed. LOL
So many ideas and very little planning. XD

My Facial Regimen

^Cheap, chemical-free, tried and tested all natural beauty regimen!

I never cared much about my face and skin until a few months back. Me and my friends went out to do some shopping. We went to this cosmetics store and found this nifty machine that can assess one's skin, we tried it out and I was horrified to learn that although I am only 24 years old, my skin is already 27 years old and very dry!

I want to age with grace so since then, I have been taking care of myself better.

I thought, the first step was to go get some moisturizer, toner and other blah blah.
I honestly don't know much about this stuff as my normal beauty routine before was just take a bath and wash my face.

I went to the the nearest mall and went home empty handed.
There were so many types that I got overwhelmed. I don't know about you but walking into places like this scare me because I literally have no idea about what essence, emulsions, serums and stuff like that are for.
Went back home and did more research.
So many to choose from! Gaaaaaa! What did I need again?!
And what's worst was it was hard to choose since they were in Japanese orz

Bimyou 2013 out, Hello 2014!

^Happy New Year, everyone!
Late as usual, I know...
I was super swamped during the holidays... I wasn't even able to post anything for December of 2013...

I was halfway through a very emotion packed entry for the closing of the 2013 but I don't feel like continuing or posting it either...

The gist of that entry was mainly what went down and how I felt about 2013.
I wrote about the awesome and not so awesome things about living in Japan and missing friends, family and loved ones.



My regrets... oh wow! Were they plenty! hahahaha

Lip Coloring Tutorial

^Colored lipsticks that aren't the usual red, pink or natural tones are very hard to find, not to mention expensive.

Here's a tutorial to get colored lips with out doling massive cash out!
Quick and easy!
Perfect for cosplays or just costuming or playing around or what have you!



What you will need:
non tinted lip balm


lip brush


eye shadow in the color of your choice


lip gloss

What you need to do:
Gather everything you will need, do your make up and have a mirror ready.

1. Conceal your lips first or go over with foundation.

2. Apply lip balm on your lips. Do not be shy, liberal amounts are fine, chapped lips are never appealing, in photos most especially. Unless that is the look you are going for then... 

Use only plain, no color lip balms as we do not want the lip balm's color to over power the color you want to attain.

3. Grab your lip brush and load on the lip balm

4. Pick the color you want and dip in the lip balm loaded lip brush.


5. Apply to lips.
Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you are happy with the color on your lips. More coats make for more vivid colors.

Tip: Best to choose 3 shades of the same color: a lighter color, the actual color and a bit of darker color with some shine, to get a more 3D and appealing effect. 
Lighter color on first, the actual color then the dark.

6. Once you are happy with the shade on you lips, go over with lip gloss to eliminate any chunks of powder and to add a more pleasing effect.
Blue lips perfect for a Blue Rose cosplay!


There you have it!
Easy, quick and cheap, lip coloring tutorial!

Sorry about my crappy photos, I had to shoot everything by myself orz

I do hope that helped.
