[Requested] Tutorial: Park Bom's makeup in "Lollipop"

November 17, 2012
Hello!~
One of my followers have requested for this tutorial for Park Bom's look from one of the first MV that they debuted - "Lollipop"! Haha this song sure brings back memory~

I tried looking for reference pictures, but they were so hard to find. I only found these so this tutorial will be based on these pictures and their MV. Surprisingly, the gif and the pictures of her with this hair style was only a couple of seconds in the MV. I thought she looked really cute! She should wear her bangs back more frequently like this ^^. Anyway!





Let's get started!
  1. Start out with eye primer and a teal or blue green color eyeshadow.
  2. Then, highlight the brow bone with a light colored eyeshadow like white, and line your eyes normally without winging it with a black liquid liner.
  3. Now this is the tricky part. My eyes are rounder than Park Bom's and she usually have pretty rectangular eyeliner on so that's what I'm trying to do. I winged out my eyeliner by following the natural shape of my eyes. After that, fill it in like so. It should look like a triangle on my top lid.
  4. Take a black pencil liner and line your bottom lash line and connect the outer corners of the eyes. Now you can tightline or just blink really hard to make the bottom liner get to the top which is what I did.
  5. Then, take a black eyeshadow and line the lashline about a third in. I squint my eyes a bit because it's easier for me that way. Then, curl the lashes.
  6. [Optional] Add false lashes
  7. Now I'm just doing touch ups. To make my eyes more rectangular instead of round, I drew a parallelogram  The key thing is to extend the eyeliner so the bottom part of your eye appears straight. Then, I highlighted the inner part of my eyes with a glittery, white eye liner, and I added more of the teal colored eyeshadow to my lids so it can show up more and be more vibrant.

Here's the final look!




Hope you like this tutorial ^-^.
I am open for suggestions for other tutorials or how-to's.

Next tutorial will be on Park Sora's hair style from my previous makeup tutorial.

[Sponsored] Angelcontacts Circle Lens Review: GEO Angel Blue

November 11, 2012
Hi guys!

Brenda from AngelContacts has contacted me to review circle lenses for her. She has kindly let me choose two pairs of circle lenses, and today I'll be review one pair (⌒_⌒;).

Let me first mention that Brenda's circle lens store is located in Canada so shipping was really quick! If you live in Canada, she also does Face Trade so you can meet up in person to get your order. Her site carries all the "first generation" of circle lenses. Most come in prescription and all of them are very natural lenses if you don't like the crazy, huge ones.

I receive her package pretty quickly, and I LOVE the packaging. It's simple and matches her site perfectly!


 This is everything in the little container. All of her circle lenses come with a free contact case! I love sites that gives you the contact case with your order of lenses. It saves the trouble of having to go out and buy one.


As you guys can see from the title of this post and pictures, I'll be reviewing the GEO Angel Blue circle lenses :).

Diameter: 14.2mm
Base curve: 8.6mm
Water content: 38%
Duration: up to 1 year after opening

DESIGN: ★★★☆☆
I'm usually not fond of circle lenses with a black limbal ring, but I don't mind these. I think it works for the size of these circle lenses so it doesn't give me a bug-eyed feel. The design is pretty normal, but I like it. Simple designs are the best and it appears really natural in person.

COLOR: ★★★★☆
I REALLY like the color. It's like a dark navy or dark sapphire blue in my eyes. I like how subtle it is and how well it blends in with my brown eyes in natural lighting. I've always thought that deep blue eyes were beautiful. The color is not vibrant, if that's what you're looking for. It's really subtle and might make people have a double take to realize that your eyes are a different color.

ENLARGEMENT: ★★★☆☆
These give me a very natural enlargement for my eyes. If you have bigger eyes than me then, these probably just look like normal contacts to you. These are the same size as my GEO Fresh Browns. I personally think 14.2mm are the perfect size for my eyes.

COMFORT: ★★★★★
These are really comfortable. I can wear these all day! I just accidentally nap with these lenses on and my eyes feel fine. I don't recommend doing that too often because it can cause problems for your eyes.





OVERALL: ★★★★★
I actually REALLY like these lenses! I give perfect score because it does not make me look bug-eyed, I can wear it all day without it irritating my eyes, and I love the color. These are the main 3 criterion that I look for in circle lenses, and these lenses have them all! I'm glad I tried this series again. Honestly, I didn't like the grey ones I had too much because it looked too dark on my eyes and my brother called me an alien -.-, but I think I might try it later on to see if I still feel the same way. Another plus is that I can wear very natural makeup and it will still look fine.
