Ancestors Celebration (GTHV) 2012

 This weekend the Vietnamese cultural event Giỗ Tổ Hùng Vương (Ancestors celebration) was held. My friends and I have been planning this for months, and suddenly the big day approached. We went to the location the night before to get some things ready. I think Friday night to Saturday night felt like one long day for us all! I haven't been so stressed in such a long timespan. I felt like I had been turning somersaults the whole day ヾ(。 ̄□ ̄)ツ

Anyway, as mentioned earlier, my primary responsibility was the Fashion show. Planning when all the girls should meet for rehearsal, makeup and hair was a big stress for me. Even though I did half of the girls' makeup around noon and the latter in the evening, it was super stressful and my back hurt like crazy since I have to stand up and do the makeup. I love doing makeup. But doing it on 10 girls+ is something whole different!! 
 This is all the models! I designed all the dresses, made the hair accessories and makeup. We have a seamstress who is specialized in sewing aó dài (Vietnamese tradiotional dress), who has helped us every year. The fabric for the dresses is bought in Vietnam.

Sadly I have none real close-up of the girls' makeup, as I was too busy actually doing the makeup!
 I took some portraits of all the girls though. You can see them all on my facebook
Other pictures from the event and the actual fashion show can be seen on our facebook page: DTTN Lac Hong.

 I stole this pic from one of the girls~

Anyway, the evening went by pretty well. I was stuck in makeup and hair most of the evening though lol, but that's just how it is.

Hope you liked! 。◕‿◕。

Spring Zebra [makeup look]

Woo haven't updated in a long time!

I updated my layout a bit as you might notice. I'm not so cool with making layouts, so I try to keep it a bit simple ヽ(ー_ー )ノ

I haven't been doing nothing! So to prove that; here is a little makeup look I made some time ago + some simple nails I made as well! (ノ*゜▽゜*)

Colorful Zebra theme 

Not really sure what to call it. But hope you like (∩_∩)

I made a small tutorial for this as well, I might post it another time if anyone would like it.


Aside from that, I've been busy with the usual + planning an annual Vietnamese cultural event I've been hosting with some friends (the third time now!). I designed the Vietnamese dresses ao dai for the fashion show that's going to take place at the evening. I'm trying to come up with ideas for makeup, hair and accessories all while preparing for exams as well phew. Well the event will take place in two weeks time, so I'll hopefully get to post about that afterwards (◕‿◕✿)

I hope I'll get time to make more creative stuffz... I've been drawing as well, my latest portrait is Koda Kumi~♥

That's it for now. I don't wanna fill you in on all the boring stuff  ヘ(。□°)ヘ

I noticed I recently got over 200 followers! ヾ(@^∇^@)ノ I'm very grateful! Thanks a lot for all the support! I'll try my best to keep this blog alive and hopefully a bit colorful and interesting  ヾ(´▽`;)ゝ

And to end this post: Here's a lovely remix of Sen to Chihiro/Spririted Away I've been listening to..♫
