Bubblegum

Hey lovelies!!

It's the weekend again!!! Fortunate for me, mine started on Thursday as I was only working 3 days this week. However, it's not gonna be the same next week. I forsee a hectic week ahead, 4 days of work and an interview coming up. Fingers crossed for that, wish me luck people! Will try to have a couple of updates over the weekend. :D

So, let's have a trip down memory lane to last Thursday. I was invited to MokTheorem's fashion show at Audi Centre Sydney, which is located in Zetlands (read: in the middle of no where) I kinda brushed aside the fact that I am *quite* illiterate when it comes to reading maps and I thought I could get there by bus and another 5 minutes walk. To cut the long story short, I ended up getting lost in a quiet and DARK residential area and had to keep my friend,C on the phone on half an hour, with the fear of getting abducted and ended up having S to pick me up from no man's land and dropped me back in city as I was already an hour late. Thanks guys ♥. Such a shame though as I heard that their fashion show is one of the best in Australia. Oh well, next time.

I ended up going crazy on an accessories haul from EQUIP and Diva as they were having massive clearance. *coming up in next post :D* and also, an epic camwhore session when I got home LOL.

Instead of the usual opening with FOTD, I shall start with my outfit of the day, a full on one. :)

That was my outfit of the *fail* night. This gorgeous red coat is one of my BEST-est buys EVER! Got this during my summer vacation in Guilin, China last year *click* and guess how much was it? 99RMB and that's less than AUD20! Can you believe what a good steal that was? I love how red screams powerful and strong (not exactly the best description but you get my drift.), yet the design has a very feminine touch to it. An absolute ♥ of mine this winter.

Got this dress for AUD15 from Market City when they were having clearance. I am not sure about you guys but I get a really great sense of satisfaction when I spend minimum amount on a gorgeous piece. :D

This was the nude pumps I got for my 21st birthday last year *click* :D Looks good but a total bitch to walk with.

And this snake-scaled-clutch/handbag is from SportsGirl , which was on a 50% discount when I got them. $14.95 from $29.95 *win*

As you can probably tell, I am into statement rings, especially skulls one. :D

Loving this!! Never fail to get compliments every time I wear them.:)

All accessories are from Diva, my all time favourite accessories shop. Only when they are on discounts though. Yes, that's the Asian in me talking. Most of their stock will go on sale after some time, unless you're one who HAS to own the latest piece of accessories, you should definitely wait for a couple of months before getting your favourite piece and you can probably grab it at 1/3 of its original price.

Let's move on to the FOTD now. :D


I wasn't in the most adventurous mood that day, so I went with the same-old boring Smokey Look with falsies on the outer half of my lashes, which is almost fail proof.

On my EYES
MAC Bare Study Paint Pot
Maybelline Stylish Smokes Quad in Natural Smokes
Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Eyeliner in Black (Upper Lash Line)
Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner in Black (Lower Lash Line)
Random Asian Falsies
Cover Girl LashBlast Mascara in Black
ELF Eyebrow Kid in Medium

On my FACE
Revlon PhotoReady Foundation in Natural Beige
Maybelline Dream Matte powder in Ivory Light
ELF Blush in Peachy Keen
CHI CHI Mosaic Bronzer in Dark
CHI CHI Single White Female Eyeshadow (as highlight)

On my LIPS
Lucas Papaw Ointment
MAC Glaze Lipstick in BubbleGum


Using half a falsie instead of a full one makes the eyes look more natural, don't ya think?


-Without flash-

I am amazed by how awesome the look turned out to be with a simple Maybelline Quad. (I know I have used that quad 8048234823820348 times but this is my first time using it on its own to create a more dramatic smokey look.) I will definitely recommend any smokey-eyes-amateurs to get this quad as it is inexpensive and hence you don't have to feel bad if you spent half of the pan on trial and error to create the perfect smokey eye look.

I kinda enjoy doing the outfit post and I might considering doing it more often. Which one do you guys prefer? A mix of outfit and make up posts or would you guys prefer make up only? Drop a comment and let me know.

How is your weekend so far? I am looking forward to a goooood night with my usual crew tonight. :D Have a lovely weekend! ♥


XOXO,
A
