Photo Post of DC's Cherry Blossom festival and various places

April 23, 2013
Hey guys!
I know I haven't posted in over a week, but I was SUPER busy with school work, student orgs, getting my things ready for this contest I'm doing, and just a whole bunch of others things haha.

Bf and I and his sisters went to the DC Cherry Blossom Festival April 14th. It was the last day for it so we just had to go! Bf's sisters and I never went to it before so we were pretty excited.

I bought this button as a souvenir even though it was a bit pricey for a button. I could have made it if I had the button machine haha.

Here are some of the cherry blossom trees.


 I love this from overhead shot the best :).
So prettttyy~

 We asked one of bf's sisters to take a picture of us and this is what she took a picture of...
At least you guys can kind of see the outfit I wore to it? ^-^
 Bf and I. The sun was in his eyes LOL.


 This was the only girl we saw in a Japanese kimono so bf made me go take a picture with her.
I look so awkward...

 Another awkward photo


 "It's a whuh? A duck. Does it quack? Of course it quacks."
Do you guys know that game? ^ haha
 We wanted to go paddle boating, but the line for it was so long and we were bored so we just left and browsed around the tents.

We bought funnel cake and it was SO overpriced.



We decided to just go out to eat since we were all hungry.

Onward to the next destination!
Random picture of my nails. 
Comment below if you guys have any ideas for a nail tutorial for me to do since a few voted for it on my poll.

We didn't go here to eat, but I took a picture of the sign because I thought the name was funny.

 We went to Honey Pig to eat! We always go here whenever we are up in NOVA.



Hi, I'm a ghost we eats Korean BBQ.




Next stop was this cute bakery!



OMG! They have macaroons! I was spazzing out when I saw them!
I just had to buy a few to try since they are pretty hyped.

I got pistachio, green tea, and raspberry. The girl recommend me raspberry and blue berry because she thinks the sour ones taste the best.


I also got some buns and stuff because whenever I'm up here, my mom always ask me to buy some. She didn't asked this time, but I remembered :).
I got the "sponge cake," custard cream, mocha cream, and white cream.

Taking selfies as we wait for our green tea bingsoo :).


The four of us pretty much devoured it LOL.

After that we went home. We were stuffed and tired. I feel asleep on the car ride home, and bf's sisters started taking pictures of me sleeping haha.


It was a pretty eventful day filled with site-seeing, picture taking, and eating good food.

Hope you liked this post!

[Requested] Tutorial: Marina's look in "Lies" MV

April 13, 2013
Hi! I'm finally posting a long awaited makeup tutorial! This tutorial was requested by my friend Megan. She mentioned that I seem to only do tutorials on Asians and thought that it would be neat to see me do a tutorial on a non-Asian person. So I was like why not? It'll be fun!

This look actually reminds me of the gyaru-look because of the long bottom lashes. So if you guys would like a natural gyaru-look this tutorial can help, too! I also really loved Marina's hair in the MV. It was very classic Hollywood-like and reminded me of the 1950s.


Anyway, let's get started on this!

As you can see from the blog title, I'll be doing a tutorial of Marina's look from her MV "Lies". 
(I know the angle is off, but this was the closes I could get...I look so bad in this angle but oh well aha)

  1. First, I filled in my eyebrows with a light brown eyeshadow. I used "Buck" from the Naked palette. I wasn't confident enough in using a dark color because I don't think I can pull it off. I also arched my brows more to be like Marina's.
  2. Next, I highlighted my brow bone so it can emphasize on the arch.
    - Then, I added eye primer like usual so the eyeshadow will lash longer and be more vibrant.
    - After that, I used a light off-white eyeshadow on my eyelids. You can use any whiteish colored eyeshadow.
  3. Then, take a brown eyeshadow, I am using "Buck" again, and swipe it on the outer V to create a smokey look.
    - Then, I took more of the "Buck" eyeshadow to darken my crease. Gently find your eyesocket and apply the eyeshadow there.
    - When I was done with that, I brought the color down to my lower lash line and applied on the outer 2/3 of my eye.
  4. Next, line your eyes and wing it out. If you have trouble winging out your eyeliner all in one step then just line your eyes normally without winging it and then follow your lower lash line to wing it out.
  5. Then, tight-line the upper waterline. This makes your lashes look thicker and intensify the eyes.
    - Then, take a white eyeliner and line your waterline so it can make it seem larger and brighter.
    - Curl your lashes.
  6. Apply mascara and give generous coats if you are not going to use falsies.
    - For your bottom lashes to help figure out were the place them use an eyeliner and dot 4 dots.
  7. Apply your bottom lashes. I did not have any so I improvised and used individual lashes that are meant for the the top lashes. I just cut them so they can be shorter. You can leave them as is, but I felt like they were way too long for my eyes.
Next add,  bronzer for a warm, bronze-y glow.

Draw a heart using a liquid or any other liners you have.

When you are done with the bronzer, apply a nude lip color, and you are done!

Here's the final look on the eyes:

Here is how it looks without flash:


Here's the final look!
 This was the only decent not blurry picture I took...

 The black this is the cami I'm wearing underneath - not a bra.



Hope you guys liked this tutorial!
I liked it haha. 
When I was done with my makeup and hair for this look, I felt like a barbie. This is the first time I curled my hair since the second bleaching I did, too. It's a bit messy, but I am still getting used to the new curler.

If you have an other makeup tutorial requests or requests for anything please leave a comment below or in my chatbox or email :).

Thanks again for reading!
