Hyuna's Troublemaker Inspired Makeup Tutorial

No Comments »




As you can see from the title this makeup look was inspired by the lovely Kim Hyuna of the korean girl group, 4Minute. More specially this look was from the music video "Troublemaker" with her and Hyunseung of Beast, a korean boy group.

I would say the song troublemaker gives off a very powerful and sexy vibe. Every time the song plays I always have an urge to walk more confidently. Is that strange? (All I know is I am going to be singing this song at noraebang during winter break! ;D)

I thought Hyuna looked extremely sexy and gorgeous in the video! She is definitely one of my favorite current korean idols. It is not just her looks, but her adorable personality that makes her so likable.

In this makeup tutorial I am using the Urban Decay Naked Palette. I just recently bought it and so far I really am loving it (this is quite shocking I think coming from me since I don't normally wear eyeshadows). I think it will be great for those night outs and future tutorials. I will be doing a blog post about it soon.


Makeup Tutorial

Troublemaker Music Video:


Products Used:
Urban Decay Naked Palette
Milani Liquidfye Eyeliner in Black
Physicians Formula 2n1 Boost Liquid Eyeliner
Dolly Wink Volume Mascara
Mac Lipstick in Angel
Sephora Light Pink Lipgloss (Got it in those b-day sets they give you)

I do hope that many of you will find this tutorial helpful and interesting. I would like to apologize that I didn't do a voice over. If I did do a voice over, this video wouldn't have been uploaded until the weekend.

Please have a great weekend loves! <3

Fall Makeup Tutorial

No Comments »




Fall is my most favorite season of the year. The temperature is just right, the cloudiness is happiness for me, and the overall atmosphere warms my heart. I know I may seem quite weird, since a number of people prefer the spring/summer season more than any other season(s). However, spring for me is just an allergy fest and summer gets too hot to even step outside. Fall is just the right season, especially one major fact is that I love fall fashion. However, this post is about makeup (I should do a video about fall fashion, but I will save that for another day).


I created a simple, neutral, everyday makeup look inspired by fall. The colors of the eyeshadows, blush, and even the lip gloss represent the falling leaves of the fall season. It is very easy to do and it fits in well this season (or any season!).

FFX-2 Yuna Cosplay: Makeup and Hair Tutorial

No Comments »






So judging from the title of this post, you may notice I did a tutorial on how to be Yuna from Final Fantasy X-2. I used to play Final Fantasy, but wasn't very good at the game (from what I remember). I always preferred the game play in Kingdom Hearts over Final Fantasy. However, I do know that there are a lot of memories from playing this game and it brings a sense of nostalgia for many.

The reason I decided to do a tutorial on her look was because one I had this costume for around 2 years and second she is overall a great person to cosplay as! I know this tutorial is late for Halloween, but I think this tutorial can help you get ready for Anime Conversions.

I know Yuna has blue and green eyes. However, I do not have blue or green lenses and I decided to substitute the lenses for my grey ones instead.

I think this look is quite suitable for everyday minus the lashes of course! It isn't too dramatic and it really gives off that innocent appearance.



I do hope you find the tutorial useful and interesting! I tried my best to film and edit this video as fast as I could with my busy school schedule. I hope you find my efforts in this video worth it.


Products:
Skinfood Red Orange Jelly BB Cream
ZA Two-Way Foundation
Etude House Proof 10 Eyelid Primer
1 Day Tattoo Black Eyeliner
88 Eyeshadow Palette (Brown)
NYX Eye Pencil in White
NYX Jumbo Pencil in Cottage Cheese
Daiso False Eyelashes in 02
Dolly Wink Eyelash Glue
Dolly Wink Volume Mascara
Rimmel Lipstick in Airy Fairy
Milani Mineral Blush in Luminous

Costume from Ebay: I forgot the seller's name since this costume was from around 2 years back.
Boots: Target (I wear them all a daily basis!)

Birthday Present from Lynn (Pewpewpichu)

No Comments »

My birthday was last Thursday (October 20th!). I wonder if you guys can guess how old I am now? Anyways, I didn't do much for it because I wanted to save money. As well as I am not a big celebration type of person. I do not expect much for my birthday because I honestly don't have many people to celebrate it with.

I received a surprise from Lynn (Pewpewpichu on youtube) a few days before my birthday and it was presents from her! She absolutely did not tell me that she was sending me presents. She really did surprise me. I kind of teared up, since we have only known each other for a short amount of time. However, she treats me so well. I am honestly very appreciative to have a friend like her.

As you can tell, Luna was excited too!


OH MY GOSH! She knows me well. I always complained to her that I should go out and buy more eyeshadows for tutorials. However, it might be a waste since I don't wear eyeshadows! Now, I have more to use for future tutorials :]

She calls me her twin since we have quite similar taste! Her card made me tear up...yes I am a softy.


Look! Hello Kitty + Real Kitty!





I honestly can't wait to try out all the products (I already tried the Mac Blush in Pink Swoon and I absolutely love it!). I can't believe she sent me these products. Thank you Lynn, seriously. You do not know how much this present means to me. <3

Lynn's youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/pewpewpichu
Please do visit her channel, she has great reviews and tutorials!

Swap from Lisa (mimiheartsme)

No Comments »

Today I received a package from the lovely Lisa (mimiheartsme on youtube!) She is such a sweet girl and always so fun to talk to. Please if you are not subscribed to her please check her youtube channel out! She has amazing tutorials and hauls
http://www.youtube.com/user/mimiheartme




So, I ripped open the package because I was so excited! I am so happy with everything she got me. Seriously, I don't think she realizes it. I even squealed when I saw the letter (didn't I tell you guys I love receiving letters?)

I can't wait to try the ZA foundation because I heard so much about it from other bloggers (chaigyaru and xiaxue). I was scared that the shade wouldn't match me, but it looks like it would be a perfect match! I will def. report back to you guys on this product. :]

This jewelry! Does she know me that well? It is a style I would totally wear. I am so happy it is a bracelet because I wanted to go buy some simple but pretty bracelets and I didn't find anything I like. However, this bracelet I love it! It is simple and still gorgeous. I am glad it is hypoallergenic (I am actually allergic to a lot of metals), so I can wear often!

Thank you so much Lisa! For taking the time out of you busy schedule to get me these items. I honestly really appreciate it. I am glad to met you and I hope we will be able to meet up in real life soon! Glad to have a friend like you. ^___^

Narsha (나르샤) Inspired Makeup Tutorial

No Comments »




I was inspired by Narsha of the korean group, Brown Eyed Girls. Now this look isn't a specific look she wore, but more of a mixture of all the looks I have seen her in. I think she would sport this on stage.

This makeup look is quite dramatic, especially for me since I am a person that doesn't normally wear eyeshadow or false eyelashes. So, this look took awhile to get use to. I really like the way it emphasizes the eyes. I think this is a good look for those with hooded eyelids because the shadow above the crease helps to show color on your eyes (if you only apply eyeshadow to your lids when you open your eyes you barely can even see it!). Also the colors are quite neutral, but they really make a statement.

I do hope you will find the tutorial useful, even though I did make a few mistakes (which I noted in the video and also the description section of the video)


Products List:
Etude House Proof 10 Eyelid Primer
88 Eyeshadow Palette
Dolly Wink Eyeshadow Quad: Brown (01)
K-Palette 1 Day Black Liquid Liner
PA False Eyelashes
Milani Liquidfye Pencil Eyeliner
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cottage Cheese
Etude House Cookie Blush in Pink Cookie
Etude House Lipstick in You Say Pink

My Haircut/Style

No Comments »


Hello everyone! As promised, I uploaded photos of my current hair and also the reference photos I used. For those who are interested in getting a haircut like mines! :]

My hair is cut with layers framing my face. The first layer starts a bit below my chin and the rest follows below it. As for the back layers, they are just simply cut long. Nothing too short. As for my bang, I asked my hair dresser to cut them a bit thicker and of course shorter.

Here are photos after I got my haircut!

I do hope these photos will help! As well as the short video. If you have any questions feel free to leave them in the comment section below!

Edgy Ulzzang Makeup Tutorial 얼짱 메이크업

4 Comments »



As you can see by the title, this makeup look is quite different from what I am use to doing! I was inspired by the ulzzangs who sport more catlike, smokey, darker eyes. I think this look is great for those who do not like to go too crazy with their eye makeup, but they still want a look that would be dramatic enough. I think you can wear this look out for a night out on the town or an evening event.

I honestly thought I looked kind of weird with this makeup on. I like it, but I am obviously only use to seeing myself with more cutesy and simple type of makeup.

Hm...what do you guys think of it? Can I pull it off? :]




(If you notice, I tried not to smile in these photos, because I will end up looking too kid like if I did...and that ruins the purpose of the makeup!)




Product Used:
Etude House Proof 10 Eyelid Primer
Lorac Eyeshadow in Sand
88 Palette; Silver and Black
K-palette 1 Day Tattoo Eyeliner
Dolly Wink Black Pencil Eyeliner
Taiwanese White Shimmer Stick
Dolly Wink Volume Mascara

Products not shown in the video, but used:
Milani Mineral Blush in Luminous
Etude House V.I.P. Girl Lipstick in You Say Pink

Thank You! 1500+ Subscribers (GIVEAWAY?)

2 Comments »

I recently reached over 1500+ subscribers a few days ago. I am quite shocked and amazed. I wouldn't have thought I would be watched at all. I always felt and still feel that my videos are not of great substance yet. I am trying my best to make them the best I can make them (such as getting a new camera, filming differently, editing and much more!).

I am not a youtube guru, I am definitely not a professional make up artist, hairstylist, fashion stylist, and etc. However, fashion and beauty related topics are of my interest. It is funny to me though, if you were talking to me back when I was in middle school (beginning high school) you would hear me talk about how I would never wear make up and how I didn't like it. I really have changed.

I am not really a big make up person if you notice my make up tutorials are not very extravagant, I like to stick to more simple looks because I am able to wear them in real life. I might try some crazier things in the future, just to test it out and see if I will get any good feedback from it. However, I think I am def. going to stick more with fashion related videos (and hair!). Since I do want to pursue a career in fashion. I am unsure of exactly what I want to do, almost every job in the fashion industry is as interesting as another. But, I know I really just want to be in fashion and be quite successful at it as well.

Now moving onto the video below, I decided to hold a giveaway to show you how thankful I am to all to those who have been supporting me and following me! This giveaway is on my youtube channel, so you will have to enter the contest there.





Giveaway Open Internationally!!!

Rules:
1. Must Be A Subscriber to My Channel!
2. Like This Video!
3. Follow Me On Facebook! (Optional) www,facebook.com/wenjinxD

Target - Lace Up Combat Boots!

3 Comments »

Mossimo Supply Co. Kienan Heeled Hiker Boots - Black



I went shopping at Target to get some groceries and I finished getting everything on my shopping list. I had time to spare and I stated roaming around Target. I walked towards the shoe section and saw these lovely shoes! I always wanted a pair like this.

I do have combat boots (they are also from Target) but they do not have a heel and when I saw these I thought to myself, I got to try these on. They only have a size that was half bigger than my shoe size, but I really wanted to see if it would fit. It fitted really comfortably. It didn't make my toes feel cramped or anything like that. I will have room to wear socks!

I haven't worn the shoes out yet, but you will def. see it in an outfit of the day hopefully soon!
