Hi there lovelies! I hope you're having a fantastic weekend because I am all full of bubble tea and pork buns from one of the asian clubs' general body meeting. This is the makeup look that went with yesterday's outfit post, something inspired by all the bright crazy colours in floral patterns. I don't usually wear falsies because I feel like they obstruct my view and make my lids heavy or crazy bright colours because I am all about the big picture in outfit pics. However, I have soooo much makeup and a little extra time, so I got to playing with fun exotic shades.
For the eyes, I wanted something smokey and lots of liner to make my eyes bigger with the falsies. I tried out my new ELF Shimmer eyeliners and was very impressed. For $1 USD, they are really soft and pigmented and actually stay on. I don't feel like I'm scratching my eyeball or getting Crayola-happy, so I was able to use a bright turquoise colour on the bottom lashline without looking too much like a freak show haha. For the lips, I was inspired by something I saw on the runway earlier: a bright fuchsia on the lower lip and a bright orange on the upper lip. I used a vibrant berry shade all over my lips, then applied a lilac lipgloss on the top lips. It's very subtle in room lighting but under bright luminescence the difference is very visible. Please excuse the bathroom pics ... I really need to find a place that allows me to take pictures with flash and gives me colour accuracy.
My new favourite blush is ELF Studio in Pink Passion! It's such a pretty matte bright pink that when dabbed on looks super natural but when layered gives a gyaru kawaii dolly look. Can we get a Rock&Republic dupe woot woot? I think it can qualify as a R&R Kinky dupe but I can't attest because I wasn't willing to fork over the goods for such a HUGE blush even when on major sale :D I'm a $3 blush kind of gal haha.

For now I should probably really crank out that personal statement and physics homework. In some hours it will be time to sleep, wake up, drag self to class, lab, come back and stay up all night to complete a crazy lab write-up and another exhausting week. I have a huge line-up of outfit posts to do as well so I should get cracking like the Kraken xD Enjoy a hardworking Monday, loves!
