Lost in Translation

Today I had to go to school, on a day I wasn't supposed to. Spent my day taking my AP Psych midyear. So to match my mood I dressed in all black. Probably my go - to look whenever I don't know what to wear. Some say it's boring, but if you mix and match with different patterns and textures you can make it more interesting. 

 H&M blazer, H&M lace tank, Aldo Bag, Target Leggings
 Here's a closer look : I actually found the gold brass button in the household button drawer. I love the vintage feel, and definitely makes the blazer look a bit more lavish
 F21 reindeer necklace, H&M owl ring, OPI Malaysian Mist with some juvenile bows on the ring finger ;), Aldo Pearl Bracelet
 Rialto Boots

Valentine's Day Inspired Makeup

So I finally managed to film another makeup tutorial. This time it was a Valentine's Day Inspired Look with pink and brown shadows.

I used my Coastal Scents 88 Matte Palette, my Lancome Cils Booster XL Mascara Base, Stila Lip Glaze in Candy, Loreal Telscopic Explosion Mascara, Benefit Eye Bright and the Loreal HIP Color Chrome Eyeliner.

Here's how it turned out -
I like this look because though there's pink in it, it's still quite wearable and appropriate for the day time. Since there was a lot of pink going on up in the eyes, I put a very minimal amount of pink on my face and lips, by just sticking to bronzer and a natural gloss color.
What makeup look do you want to see in my next video?

Best friend / Boyfriend Tag

So if you haven't watched the Best friend / Boyfriend Tag video Julie and I posted a few weeks ago, here it is

It was so much fun to film! I think the original footage was around thirty minutes, but we cut it down to fourteen. 

Our Friendship
I feel like there's a big misconception between me and julie's friendship. Not only on Youtube but in real life. Me and her do not hug, compliment each other, those typical "best friend" actions. Instead, we find it super awkward whenever we compliment each other and joke that this is not how we are normally. But that's just how we are. I feel like we're sisters. I typically tend to show affection to my friends, not my best friends. It's just like how I don't hug my sister and get all lovey dovey with her. I feel like Julie & I have gone past the "OMG FRIENDS FOREVER STAGE ILYSFM *HUG , *KISS ON THE CHEEK" stage and moved on to the "I've known you forever now, and I don't need to show affection in public for others to know that we're best friends" stage.
- am i making this sound like a love story?-
But anyways, there's no doubt that whether you personally know us or not, in public it's obvious that me and jules are best friends. No questions asked. That's what I love about our friendship.  
So that's my two cents on julie and i's friendship.

On a lighter note, I've received a lot of questions on my hair and makeup in this video so here it is! 

 Makeup - It's actually quite easy. I think it was the lashes that gave the illusion of being "pretty." HAHA. 
Face - Mac Studio Finish Concealer in NW20
Eyes- no eyeshadows, WetnWild Mega Liner (i don't really like it), eyelashes from Taiwan
Lips - Revlon Matte Lipstick in Pink Pout under Revlon Super Lustrous Lip gloss in Pink Pop

As for the hair, it was really simple. I just slept with my hair in braids, applied Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Mousse, parted my hair in the middle, and took the front sections of my hair and twisted it and pinned it back. 
haha, I probably made it sound harder than it was. But it was SO incredibly simple. Perhaps I might do a tutorial on it ? 
So that's it for now!

So I haven't updated my blog in quite some time, so I've decided to post just a few random pictures of my week

 Last night, I went to eat some korean BBQ and this was my outfit. I scored that floraly ruffled tank for less than 8 bucks! I wore a knit H&M sweater, white H&M tee, floral Express tank and simple brown leggings. For these past few months, I've been having this obsession with ruffles peeking under t-shirts. I just think its an easy way to incorporate your spring/summer clothing into your fall/winter wardrobe.
While I was eating Korean BBQ last night, I saw SUAHHH (= You've all met her in one of my OOTD videos, and she is probably the funnest girl to hang out with. She's so fun to hang out with. I've been hanging out with her too much these past few months.
  I've been loving this lipstick I'm wearing here. It's the Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Mauve. I've also been wearing my hair like this a lot these days - just simple loose waves. 

So, that's it for now. Hopefully I'll start consistently posting on my blog, but midterms and SATs are coming up so I must study study study ! sikeee.
