ive been wanting ย 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 ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

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, ย i still nearly fainted when i saw the quotation! =p since i really wanted a haircut and color done – i took the plunge! ๐Ÿ˜€

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??? ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

so today, i did an adele inspired look ๐Ÿ˜€ 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)

mwahs,

attended a good friend’s wedding last sunday and i decided to wear slightly smokey eyes and to focus on my eyes ๐Ÿ™‚

ugh i think i am getting really fat! look at my face- so round!! LOLย  *diet mode on*

it was really a BAD hair day. it was raining and it was humid – my hair just didn’t want to cooperate! hehe

and this time around, i think my eyeliner IS crooked bwahahahaha!

products used:

Face: Makeup Forever HD foundation, MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural (to set foundation), TheBalm TimeBalm in medium, MAC brow pencil in Brunette, NARS Laguna bronzer (contour), MAC peachykeen blush

Eyes: NARS dogon eyeshadow duo, Bobbi Brown Caviar ink gel eyeliner, Maybelline Falsies Mascara

Lips: wet ‘n wild lip liner (natural shade), laura mercier duchess rose, mac clear lipglass

How to:

1. Apply foundation all over face, concentrating on areas which need more coverage. (i used beauty blender to apply MUFE HD foundation)

2. Apply timebalm concealer to lighten dark circles and to cover blemishes.

3. Set with MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural.

4. Apply the lighter shade of the Dogon eyeshadow duo all over lid.

5. Apply the darker shade of Dogon on the crease and a little bit over the crease (to emphasize the color). Apply to the outer corners of the eyes. Tip: Draw an inverted V or > at the corner of the eyes then blend blend blend! :)

6. Apply eyeliner. And remember to fix your eyebrow.

7. Curl your lashes and apply mascara! :)

8. Contour your face by applying bronzer to the hollows of your cheeks. Tip: do the fish face and look for the part of your face that is sucked in. thatโ€™s the hollow of your cheeks!

9. Apply blush to the apples of your cheek. Since i am going for the smokey eye effect, i applied a very natural looking blush to balance out the look.

10. Optional: Lightly apply powder to blend the bronzer and blush and to set your makeup. If you want a dewy look, you can skip this step.

11. Apply lipstick of your choice. Again, I opted for a natural looking lip color, you want to highlight only one area of your face and not all ๐Ÿ™‚

12. Apply lipgloss in the middle of your bottom lips and smack your lips together. This will give you the illusion of fuller lips!

what do you think?

hope you guys liked this look!
