one fine night, while waiting for hubby at the office (this was wayyy beyond working hours – just so you know teeheee), i decided to play with my naked 2 palette. i remember watching a tutorial on smokey eyes on youtube and decided to give it a go.

just a background – i rarely wear smokey eyes, i feel that with my dark circles and eye bags, it doesnt really look nice on me. so i try to steer clear from smokey eyes (especially black color).

anyway, here’s the end result:

please ignore the red spots on face. was extremely PMS-ing and my foundation has worn off. didn’t retouch my foundation. just powdered my face and that’s it πŸ™‚

closeup on the eyes:

so what do you think? πŸ™‚ hubby seems to like it sooo might be doing more smokey eye looks. but of course cant wear this at work! haha it’s just too much. πŸ˜‰

xo, kendz

ive been wanting Β my hair styled and colored for a while, i have been feeling restless lately and i just wanted a change – i was just too lazy to get my sorry ass to the salon. but yesterday i finally dragged myself to give oliver, of vivere salon megamall, a visit. sadly, he wasn’t around 😦

walked around megamall while waiting for hubby and i happened to chance upon tony&guy and decided to give it a try! i’ve heard of tony&guy before and i know it was going to be more expensive than vivere salon, nevertheless, Β i still nearly fainted when i saw the quotation! =p since i really wanted a haircut and color done – i took the plunge! πŸ˜€

this was me, before the haircut

this is me today! :p

sorry a bit blurry…

trying on different lipcolor. see what difference a lipstick can make??? πŸ™‚ which one do you prefer on me?

oh! and i wanted to show this very cute earrings i got from ALDO last Sunday. it’s a huge tear drop shaped earrings with lots of bling πŸ™‚

do you like my new hairstyle? i am a bit torn… honestly, i wanted to cry yesterday because of the length and i felt like it uber emphasized my super round face. :p but i do like the color!

however, my hubby seems to love it. so i guess, i should be happy πŸ™‚

i am sooo in love with adele. i just absolutely ADORE her – i love her music, her voice, her accent, i just love everything about her! πŸ™‚

and she looked amazing during the Grammy’s (2012)! she was so elegant and glamorous in her black Giorgio Armani dress. and her makeup is just fab!!! πŸ™‚

so today, i did an adele inspired look πŸ˜€ it’s more toned down than her makeup in the pic, after all, i am a working girl. :p (might look weird wearing false lashes and a heavily contoured face to work! haha)
