Pre-Valentines Party

Yeah, yeah. I know I'm super late with posting this but I've been busy...the semester is ending soon (SUMMER SOON YES) so everything is just piling up... haha. Sigh.

Anyway, how was your Valentines'/Chinese New Year? I didn't really celebrate myself since I'm single..haha. But I did have dinner with my family (immediate and cousins etc) because it was my cousin's birthday--and of course, to celebrate Chinese New Year.

I did go to a party last Friday though, at my friend's house. We decided we would have a 'Wild Lovin' theme--basically just an animal theme. I didn't have anything animal-ey to wear so I thought I could paint my nails but then that wouldn't be very noticeable. So I went out to see if I could get anything cheap to wear (since I'm not likely to wear anything animal print on a normal day). I managed to find leggings for only P70 (less than $2), so I just figured I could go to the party kinda casual. Good thing a lot of other people did the same, I mean people didn't even follow the theme! Lol.

I just did my makeup to match my outfit so I wouldn't be too out of place. Forgive the crappy image quality. I slept over at my friend's house (the house where the party was held) so I couldn't bring a lot of stuff.

The makeup:

Since I had school that day it was too much of a hassle to bring a lot of stuff..so I only brought my Coastal Scents 88 matte palette and my Shawill 12 palette. Despite this, 3 of my friends still wanted me to do their makeup..haha.

FACE Maybelline Clearsmooth face powder
CHEEKS Ever Bilena blush in Raisin
EYES ELF studio eye primer and eyeliner sealer, Coastal Scents 88 palette, Maybelline eyeliner, Maybelline Volum' Express Cat Eyes mascara
LIPS Shawill gloss
CHEEK CHEETAH PRINT ELF studio eye primer, Coastal Scents 88 palette

The cheetah print on my cheek was a lot more clear and defined in real life..my camera phone is sucky :( It wasn't that blurry, the lines were sharp I promise! Hehe

I forgot undereye concealer..so I couldn't conceal my dark secrets. Sigh

The outfit:
Leggings (they are supposed to be grey).
The casual outfit...haha

Anyway. I'm working on something right now--my baby thesis! It's going to be about makeup so I'll be posting here what I work on for it. (:

Happy Wednesday, have a good day today!

FOTD/FOTN & Happy Birthday, Mom!

It's my mom's birthday today (well, Feb 8)--yay! So today, I went to class, then when I got home we all got ready to go out. I wore the following look to school.

FACE Celeteque moisturizer, Neutrogena Spectrum + advanced sunblock lotion SPF 70, Maybelline Clearsmooth Powder
CHEEKS ELF bronzer (I forgot what shade) applied on apples of cheeks
LIPS Shawill lipgloss over Nivea Pinkish Boost lip care 3-in-1
EYES art deco eyeshadow base, 120 palette, Maybelline Volum' Express Cat Eyes Mascara

I'm aware that my eyeliner is uneven--this is because I woke up with one eye puffier than the other and had to compensate :/

Coincidentally, my 15 year old brother had his prom tonight (and he needed a ride home) so my parents and I decided that we would eat out so my mom wouldn't have to cook on her own birthday. I changed up a few things so my FOTD would look more appropriate for a night time setting. It was just a casual dinner (we ended up eating at TGI Friday's and for a while I completely forgot all about my diet..sigh).

For my FOTN I just added more black to my crease and thickened my eyeliner. My eyes were still uneven, sigh. Also, I used Saizen blush and Revlon Colorstay lipstick instead.

After dinner, we all went to the hotel where my brother was having his prom to wait for the whole it to finish (we sat at the lobby). A lot of the students were walking out to the photo booth nearby so I was having fun looking at their outfits and reminiscing about my own prom...almost five years ago. Gosh, I feel so old. Hehe. This was me and my mom on the day of my prom.

Don't I look so uncomfortable? LOL. It was because I wasn't happy with the way my makeup looked...that was the last time I ever had someone else do my makeup. From then on, I always did my own.

Anyway, I'm really glad to have my mom. She's such a sweet, caring woman and honestly I know that I take her for granted. I really am lucky that I have her, I wouldn't know what to do with myself otherwise. She's one of my best friends and my guide, the only person I can really turn to when I find myself in trouble.

I know that sometimes my mom and I have issues (as is normal), and most of the time it's my fault. x.x I can't exactly say I've been a perfect daughter...

I think I was...10 in this. HAHA

But I know she loves me anyway. I love you mom, happy birthday!

Anyway, that's it for today.
Be grateful for the family that you have, everyone! (:

This was today's FOTD. Something really simple cause I was in a hurry and only really had like 30 minutes to do everything.

Products used:
FACE Neutrogena moisturizer with SPF 15 (I was in hurry and didn't want to bother with moisturizer + sun block), Maybelline Clear Smooth powder
CHEEKS Ellana mineral blush in Lust (not very visible in the photo, huh), Physician's Formula pearls of perfection for contouring
EYES Art Deco eyeshadow base, PAC palette, Dollface 28 neutral palette, Maybelline eye studio pencil eyeliner in black, Maybelline Volum Express Cat Eyes Mascara
LIPS Revlon Colorstay in Unlimited Mulberry

I did my eyes simply because anything more attention grabbing and I would look kinda weird (since I was just wearing a t-shirt + jeans to class today).

And here's my NOTW:

As you can see (or maybe not) it was already chipping. It's not that shiny anymore, either..my fault because I got too lazy to put a top coat on after I put the glitter layer on. I'm changing it soon, anyway, because Valentine's (or, to some of us, Single's Awareness Day) is near...so is Chinese New Year's. Hmm... no I have to decide which theme to follow when I paint my nails this weekend.

The base polish I used for my NOTW this week is really nice though. It's this pearlescent white that turns orange-y/pinkish when light hits it.

Anyway, I have more posts coming up soon! My dad just got back from the US and he brought some stuff home from me, so you'll hear about that sometime. Also, I think by the end of February I can finally do a before/after shot (of my weight loss journey). I started on Dec. 11 and so far I've lost almost 15 lbs. Just 5-10lbs to go (I'm not sure where I'm stopping because I want to see how I look like at that weight before I decide. LOL)!
