MAC makeup | Lightroom | Photoshoot Teaser

My family just came home from a trip to America, and they bought me some stuff yay! (some per request lol)

Embarrassingly this is actually my ever first MAC makeup! (I'm so way behind) So I'm pretty excited! A lot of my friends are mac fans and users so I've been considering getting some for a long time. But I'm glad I finally got some!

 Blush: Solar Ray
Lipstick: Please Me & Russian Red

And I asked my sister to get me this Maybelline master precise eyeliner as well. I've always been using either liquid, gel or coal liner, but after trying this (and seeing a lot of the gals using it hehe) I tried it and fell in love with the easiness of applying this product! It dries fast and stays on really nicely!

Here I'm wearing the Maybelline eyeliner, Solar Ray blush (mac) and Please Me lipstick (mac)
(and my new hair in process)
Closeup: I really love this color already!! It's a matte natural pink color and stays on all day without staining and needing to be reapplied too often (I only reapplied once and after drinking and eating it was still nice and vivid). It doesn't dry out your lips either. 5 stars from here haha!! Totally love this!

Adobe Lightroom 4
It's no secret I've been using Photoshop for editing my pictures XD However all my photographer friends are using Lightroom and recommended my trying it instead since everything is easier.. So.. I finally tried!! And I'm already in love!! It's SO much easier and you can edit your photos WAY faster! What did I waster my time with in photoshop all these.. years!? Wow I feel like I just discovered the evolution in editing haha! (so slow)
SO I tried editing a photo from the Queen of Hearts makeup set I did. I really like the result hehe and it was really much easier to do than in photoshop!

And I mentioned last time I was going to do a small photoshoot right?? Well..  
Here's a small teaser!!

And that was all from this time!
Thanks for looking!

「Queen of Hearts」 MAKEUP SHOOT

Inspired by QUEEN OF HEARTS I decided to make a small makeup shoot.

The outcome wasn't as good as I had hoped since I suddenly couldn't find some of my makeup brushes and other tools.. So it's a bit toned down and 'casual' interpretation.

And here's the photospam of me... (*´_ゝ`) Enjoy!

I was actually planning to have red eyes for the look. My red contacts were out of date though so I just used my blue and edited them. But somehow I kinda liked the blue better in the end, so I decided to keep them blue. Only kept the red eyes for the second last photo since I liked the red theme in that photo.

I added a tint of gold to the lips but I guess it's only kinda visible in the last picture!

And I made the lashes out of 3 other lashes that I just stacked together “ヽ(´▽`)ノ” (black, gold and red though the red disappeared in the makeup...)

Hope you liked! And thanks for looking!

I'm going to a real photoshoot this Sunday with a friend who's a super talented photographer! He's awesome so I'm looking much forward to it! 
Taking pictures of yourself is just kinda awkward and bothersome haha!

Graduation Ceremony | Summer Holiday | Going back to Japan

I realized a haven't updated for almost a month now.. ( ̄ω ̄;)

I'm gonna do a brief update haha

This is from the graduation ceremony or more exactly the reception after. Yes we all look so serious and mature へ(゜∇、°)へ 
 Not studying Japanese for nothing!
 Only the suits give away we actually went to a business school lol
My very small and awesome Japanese class!! Gonna miss you guys (ノД`)・゜・。
And as I already told you earlier I got a new camera as a graduation present from my parents!! I'm really happy O(≧▽≦)O
And surprising when I went to work the next day my friend had bought me flowers!! Waah soo nice!! (can you guess where I work? lol)
And my cousin was so sweet to buy me a present as well!! Harajuku Lovers Super G perfume! It's so awesome and really big compared to my other small Harajuku Lovers!! I didn't expect any presents at all so I was quite surprised ヽ(;▽;)ノ
My friend just came home from Korea and she always buys small presents. I got this pretty sparkling makeup purse and a cute My Little Pony strap (☆^ー^☆)

Well and since I have 'Summer Holiday' now I have actually just been super geeking it.. More specifically been the ultimate otaku haha... ha... My current addictions have been thiiiis~

Well it's also an excuse to keep my Japanese up to date. Listening to Japanese is better than nothing I guess!! But I'll be going back to Japan in September!!  Wooh already bought the ticket and everything I'm really excited! 
But before that I still have a lot of stuff I wanna do before I leave which I'm really excited about as well (≧∇≦)/

And that was all for the small update~!
