Christmas Colors10:58:00 PM
I know Christmas' over *boo :(* but the atmosphere's still very Christmas-ish right so i think it's still appropriate for me to post Christmas related entry :)? Not very Christmassy either lah, it's just an outfit/make up post that's inspired by Christmas colors :p. And you know (if you read my previous post) that i don't even celebrate Christmas, i spent the actual Christmas day lazying around all day in my jammies at home hahaha. This whole Chirstmas-colored ensemble was the outfit and makeup that i wore last Sunday when we went out with #Undecided (and hubby) + Katherine.
And even though i don't celebrate Christmas, i always get dragged into the whole feeling and start to dress a bit like a Christmas tree around the special day hahaha. It all started when i painted my nails red in "preparation" for Christmas, then i remember last year my "Christmas outfit" was red (seriously, it felt like just a few months ago instead of a whole year ago WTH. Some blogger wrote that her mindset was still around April and i couldn't agree more! How come it's almost new year again i don't even...) and i hate repetition *LOL* so i decided to dress up in another very Christmassy color : Green! (Well, turquoise's more like it, still in the green family right???).
And here's the FOTD :
|Bangs' getting really long, it's getting super annoying and i hate looking at my pictures with this in-between bangs (i like it short or long, in-between's a total pain in the ass)|
The make up was somewhat inspired (or more like challenged) by some local online shop/community's statement about wearing bright green eyeshadow and red lipstick as a common mistake to look like an ondel-ondel *LOL*. I beg to differ! With the right application i actually believe that red's one of green's match made in heaven! So i was totally like "Challenge accepted!" LOL. Here's the simple step by step tutorial (after the usual foundi/BB cream+under eye concealer *i haven't had real blemishes in the longest time so my DHC concealer's been collecting dusts for months*+powder):
|Eye primer, the current fave shimmery peachy eyeshadow all over the lid, opaque crayon/bottle green on outer V-blend inwards|
|Same green eyeshadow under eyes, draw long-downwards winged thick liner, use pearly silver/white pigments in the middle between the peach and green eyeshadow to blend the two colors together as well as adding more sheen to the eyes|
|Use mascara generously|
|Peachy blusher, add black eyeliner halfway from the outer corner (connecting the line with the upper line) continued with pearly white eyeliner to the other half|
|Looking a bit like the green lantern here :p|
|Then add red lippies!|
|Ta-dahh! Sorry for the blank expressions, one of those days when i couldn't get a decent close up picture :(...|

Planned to do more Dolly Look challenge and wanted to incorporate it in this look (i was thinking of Christmas Doll, maybe? Hehe) but i was having a bad fringe day (yep, told you i don't have bad hair day, but my fringe can cause me a lot of distress when in-between length like this!), my eyes were leaking so when i came home chunks of my winged liners were cut off (seriously, Maybelline's Hyper Gloss Liquid Eyeliner's so unwaterproof it's ridiculous zzz), i was (still am #gloomy) having my period and feeling very very puffy and watery *double sigh* and i couldn't be bothered! Maybe i'll do more Dolly look (time limit's still quite far afterall) soon if i'm not too lazy!
That's it for today, folks! Toodles!
