Short Hair Is In, If You Don’t Already Know.

Yes. I had my goldilocks chopped 2 months ago and I did not regret! lol

Before

After

Having short hair has so many advantages.

1. Lesser weight on the head and shoulders

2. Lesser shampoo usage and faster drying time

3. Shorter hair styling time and varieties of styling to play with

and most importantly, cheaper to have my hair dyed!! Say goodbye to hair getting caught by the handles of my bags and chairs and clothes and blah blah blah :p

P/S: disclaimer: try it only if you are ready, for I might not take responsibility for your sudden hair loss 🙂 LOL just a joke to perk your day!

Makeup …It Can Be As Universal As Love

I will like to share with you about my makeup experience. Not the skills nor the techniques today but what it could actually represent. Just like love, it could bring joy and happiness to people around the world. When things that we could get easily, they might need a few more steps in order to get it. When your passion, interest and skill could actually bless others.

It was an impromptu makeup lesson that I had to conduct in my mission trip in June. I was informed that the ladies have parties and weddings to attend every year and they would love to put on makeup. Tell me, which girl will not want to look pretty? Hardly right?? lol So there is a ‘market’ for beauty everywhere.

I brought my basic makeup and they were not enough to do a full makeup look. So we had to head to the market to get the supplies. The makeup sold at the market was very cheap and of average quality. But we would like to work with what they have available in the district.

After school, the students cycled to the base where we were staying at for the lesson. I was actually surprised to see so many who came as it was a last minute planned programme. I was nervous but excited to see how it would go.

Look at the bicycles parked downstairs. So cool!

Let the lesson begin!

It was a hot day and I was hoping that the makeup would not melt.

Now it was their turn to role-play 🙂

The lady who was doing the makeup, she has a talent! She could blend and visualize well with the look she wanted to do.

Look at her work 🙂

Oh ya, they have hair styling skills on their own too! I got to learn from them instead 🙂

The time of fellowship and teaching was priceless. The joy was unspeakable. I am actually smiling now as I am typing :))

So the next time you are going for a mission trip, do not think that your skills and passion cannot be shared. Bless others with your talents and do not be surprised that you might be blessed with even more 🙂

MAKEUP STILL GOES ON

Well, my close friends would have discovered that I love Bali a lot. It is almost a yearly affair for me and for once in a year, getting a little tan does not kill me 🙂 However, sun protection is still vital because I want to look tan but not roasted!

I will always be the makeup artist of the group (unless I am going with Sab lol) and extra effort is made to doll up to ensure pretty memorable photos are taken:)

So here is one of the looks I will like to share with you.

After seeing all my makeup posts, maybe you would have realised that I love to play with colours and most of the time, I will emphasize on the eyes.  I would prefer that my eye makeup can be seen on the photos regardless of different shooting conditions.

So take the extra mile and keep the memorable photos as a precious collection 🙂

IN THE BLACK FRAME

B.L.A.C.K, a feeling of  inconspicious, a restful emptiness and mysteriously evokes a sense of potential and possibility.

“Without black, no color has any depth. But if you mix black with everything, suddenly there’s shadow – no, not just shadow, but fullness. You’ve got to be willing to mix black into your palette if you want to create something that’s real.”–Amy Grant

“Black is real sensation, even if it is produced by entire absence of light. The sensation of black is distinctly different from the lack of all sensations.”–Hermann Von Helmhoz

“Black is not a color.” “Color is a matter of taste and of sensitivity.”

–Edouard Manet

This post is done to commemorate the 10th anniversary of 9/11, our heart goes out  to the loss.

STILL THE ONE I L.O.V.E

Yeah, we have disappeared for some time indeed. But our love and passion for makeup will never disappear! 🙂

We still check out this blog regularly and I personally felt touched that the visitor-ship is over my expectation. I believe the chase for more beauty knowledge is always present and since both of us are still in the beauty line, the more we should share our experiences and knowledge right? 🙂

So we will try out best to update this blog often. Welcome back!

Love,
