FOTD: We Don't Fight With No Brass Knuckles

Hi guys! This was my makeup and hairstyle for the military jacket outfit a couple of days ago. I think 5 people caught me taking pictures of my eye outside my apartment. One guy even offered to help .. so embarrassing! xD I used gold because I like how natural it looks and it complements all the gold military stripes on my jacket and the gold earrings I wore. I realize that I've been doing a lot of the same look recently. I should do something olive green next or a smokey eye. If you guys see Wet n Wild eyeshadow palettes (6 extremely pigmented colours for $5), GRAB ONE!

I did my hair in a high top bun that seems to be pretty popular nowadays. I flipped my hair over completely, basically bending my head down towards the floor and grabbed all of it and raised my head up. I smoothed out the loose strands with one hand and pulled out some side bangs and left my forehead bangs out and adjusted the ponytail so that it centered near the top of my head. While tying the ponytail with a hair tie, I looped it twice and on the last loop to make it tight (depends on how long your hair is), I twisted the ponytail into a bun and tucked in the loose end. This sounds really complicated but it's not. Basically just tie a ponytail-bun on the top of your head by flipping your hair over first. I could never be a teacher xD 

Trying out some products I don't usually use or haven't seen in a while.

Products Used:

ELF All Over Cover Stick in Fair (way too light for me right now; it's also really drying)
Covergirl Clean Foundation Oil Control in Soft Honey,
applied with ELF Concealer Brush and smoothed out with fingers
ELF Studio Complexion Perfection
(ELF Studio Concealer Pencil for minor spot touchups)
ELF Mineral Primer
Wet N Wild E/S Palette in Vanity: gold all over lid, matte milk brown on outer half of lid, matte peach for browbone highlight
ELF Studio Creme Liner in Black (melts if you blink a lot like I did - boo panda eyes!)
ELF Studio Brow Kit in Dark
ELF Studio Blush from Blushing and Bronzing Powder
 I really like how the sun makes you lashes' shadows look super long. This one's interesting because it bounced off my straight lashes D: and made this cool shadow curtain across my iris. I realize my eyelids look really weird. I didn't know they were capable of doing that weird semi-monolid thing lol
Really contemplating a dye back to black to get rid of this streaky nonsense or maybe I'll try Palty if I can find it at 99 Ranch. Do you guys have any suggestions for my hair? Dye it black, dark brown, same colour? Dye just the roots? I'm up for anything : )
Serious rootage. Who knew my hair could grow that much in 2 months?
 Should I attempt a celebrity-inspired look? I'm up for K-pop, Lady Gaga, anything you can throw at me. Photo links welcome for inspiration!

Nope, the clean 360 make my skin all flakey and dry. After I used it I swear I never use it again ^^. However, I still keep the pad since it's great for exfoliate ^^. Your eye makeup are amazing XD.

I Like the eyeshadow ;) and ur bun :D i think u should stick with the same hair color. it suits u. but trying another color could make a good change too ;)

thanks for your comment! yeah I've tried a few stretch mark creams and nothing really worked either! Still I'm tempted to buy them hoping someday a magical cream will work. lol yeah true I should just stop looking at my butt so much cuz everytime I look for a long time the more I notice them!!
