my first ALDO bag...

...and probably my last :) since i am not really into bags or shoes. i don't buy bags that would cost more than 500 bucks! yeah...i am that cheap. lol. of course, when it comes to makeup, it's a different story. :)

but when i saw this Aldo bag from Phoebe (the dark violet one), i can't help but drool over it. and good thing the angels above might have heard my plea...so now...


now, i am again thinking bout that pink Guess bag i saw weeks ago...maybe, if i start praying tonight, i shall have it too?


Happy Friday!

this look should have been posted last weekend, but i forgot. LOL!
you ladies know by now that i have a new job, it's a day job and aside from being mandated to wear formal clothes, it also means no dark eye makeup. boo-hoo! but good thing is, when it's Friday, we can wear casual...so i guess i'd be looking forward to Fridays from now on. =)

so last Friday, i took advantage of the chance and i again wore a smokey eye look. i also missed wearing just my jeans and a comfortable shirt.
here's my look:


PAC Brow kit in Dark topped with MAC Girl Boy
Kleancolor palette
MAC Loud Lash Mascara
MAC Technakohl eyeliner on the waterlines


Smashbox Photofinish light
Cinema Secrets concealer on the undereyes (topped with OM Saffron concealer), sides of the nose and blemishes
Artdeco Mineral Foundation in #4
MAC Sculpt and Shape for contouring, MAC SF powder in NC25 to highlight
MAC mineralized blush in Dainty
MUFE HD loose powder as finishing powder


MAC l/s in Peachstock topped with Artdeco lipgloss in #28

what else can i say?

gotta get used to wearing neutrals...

i know i haven't been able to post EOTDs/FOTDs lately...and i am not sure if i'd be able to give you the looks i used to wear for a long time now since i am back to having a day job and i surely can't wear those dark eye makeup anymore. hmmm, maybe when it's a friday when i can wear casual? LOL

anyways, here's my (boring) looks for today..


PAC Brow kit in Dark topped with MAC Girl Boy
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Coastalscents Neutral palette
Covergirl mascara in Brown Black
PAC eyeliner in Brown Black on the waterlines


Smashbox Photofinish light
Cinema Secrets concealer on the undereyes (topped with OM Saffron concealer), sides of the nose and blemishes
Artdeco Mineral Foundation in #4
MAC Sculpt and Shape for contouring, MAC SF powder in NC25 to highlight
MAC mineralized blush in Dainty
MUFE HD loose powder as finishing powder


Artdeco lipgloss in #43

I tried my Artdeco Mineral foundation and guess what, no itching! i find the shade a tad lighter when first applied but it darkens after a while. hmm...i am too acidic! grrr..but i love the feel and the fact that i didn't itch. i'll use this again and will post my review soon..but so far, i am liking it. but will probably get another shade that is lighter than what i already got.

...and yeah, i'm wearing formal clothes. i only get to wear casual during Fridays, and it suck since i got used to just jeans and shirt for more than two years. oh well...but of course, i am more than thankful that i have a job again! i officially start next week...i just attended a project meeting since the client came over.

and i know my eyebags really look terrible. i don't get to sleep that much at night. i need to re-program my body clock to get used to sleeping at night...i only get to sleep for like 3hrs, so there.

sniff...i need eyebag removal soon!

weeeee..thanks for those who prayed for me that i get a new job soon...and for the endless support and encouragement. i'd still be doing freelance (makeup) from time to time. besides, my job is only from Mondays to Fridays (regular working hours).

also, i want to take this opportunity to thank those who registered for our Makeup Workshop next week. Hope to meet and see you soon ladies!

i've been lemming to get some items from Artdeco, most especially their mineral foundation. and finally, i was able to get one...and also their silk powder which claims to really help in keeping your foundation stay put. hmmm, i'm gonna try that one soon and of course, post my review.

here's my artdeco loot:

fixing powder...will try this one out soon and watch out for my review :)

mineral foundation, i got really interested in this. they have another one like that of L'oreal (with a brush) but i wasn't able to find a shade there so i got this one instead. besides, i have lots of brushes for mineral foundation use.

lipgloss in #43...got this one because of Phoebe's reco :)

my freebie...love the color. it's grayish-green...

i also decided to get this:

my hair is getting longer...and i just hate when i get fly-aways. and i can also use this to my clients, right? :)

and here's a gift from Shen:

thanks shen!

and now, i'm lemming to get some pigments from TKB Trading and press them!


(no buy! no buy!)

busy, busy...

i know i haven't been blogging that much (reviews, eotds/fotds...) but i will be, soon! i just need to learn how to manage my time nowadays since i am back to work and this time, i'm working on a dayshift...and because i've been working for more than 2 yrs on a night shift before, i am really trying so hard to get used to waking up early to come to work...despite me being able to sleep at around 4am. sniff.

but thanks my lovelies for always visiting my site. you encourage me to go on and pursue my dreams...i am so glad i've started blogging, i've met new friends (online and in person) and you make my life so much happier.
