Valentine Look - Black Smokey Eye & Brief product reviews

I'm back with another eye tutorial! This time I did not have enough time to take pictures of each step like I did in my last eye makeup tutorial but this one is so simple, I promise!

"Smokey eye" is a type of technique you use to apply eyeshadow. You can use any colours you like and still have a smokey eye effect. There are two smokey eye techniques, I demonstrated the first type in my Simple Soft Neutral Smokey Eye For Hooded/Asian Eyes post, where you smoke-out your outer corner of your eyes (outer V). Today I will show you the second way of creating a smokey eye. Keep reading if you like what you see =]

Luxe Box by Loose Button: January 2012 (Special edition? mmm)

I've been subscribed to Loose Button ever since they launched in 2011 and I must say it's been a roller-coaster ride with some amazing Luxe Boxes as well as some that weren't the best. If you tried searching my blog for old posts on all of the other Luxe Boxes I received then I have to apologize here because I was away from my blog near the end of 2011 that's why I wasn't able to update my blog as often as I would liked to. I believe the last box I blogged about still had the old packaging!! LOL. But I'm sure there are other bloggers and vloggers who kept you up to date =].

This month was quiet the surprise =]. The box it shipped in was gigantic compared to it's original!!
Keep reading to find out! =]

Outdoor classes ROCKS! literally; we were out looking at ROCKS and Fossils!

This past semester I took an Environmental Science course called Glacial Sediments and Stratigraphy which explores the repeated formation of large continental ice sheets over North America and Europe in the last 2.5 million years. The landscape of Ontario is a fossil landscape inherited from the last Laurentide Ice Sheet that disappeared only 10,000 years ago; much of southern Ontario is buried by glacial sediments and the Great Lakes are the direct result of glaciation. This course also reviews the cause of glaciations and their geological and geomorphological effects paying special regard to the long record of past glacial and interglacial climates preserved in the Toronto region. Part of the requirement of this course is to attend a FIELD TRIP!.... field trip? Yesssss pleasee! This 2-day field trip allowed us to explore the glacial history of Southern Ontario.

Simple Soft Neutral Smokey Eye For Hooded/Asian Eyes

Looking for a simple, easy, quick eye tutorial for hooded eyes? Well, hope this post helps =)

To get a more dramatic and intense look, simply use the same techniques and layer more colours on or use darker/more pigmented shadows. I only did one layer of each colour in the pictures below which makes this smokey eye very soft and wearable; even in the day time.

Keep reading for a detailed step by step tutorial =], ENJOY!

What I got for xmas 2011 =]

Hey everyone!, anyone going back to school yet? My classes starts next MONDAY(1/9/12) >< not that excited. I'm taking an extra course as a backup just so that I can make sure I have more than enough credits to graduate this term =D. So happpy to finally graduate SOON =O.. Only 4 more months of school =D but I have no idea what I wanna do after that aside from being a freelance makeup artist... mmmmmm?!?!??!

Anyways, on to the pretty stuff I got for xmas.  Just a heads up, I don't exchange presents with every single family member (like brother, brothers in law etc..) and don't exchange presents with every girlfriends (because we do secret santas within different groups of friends so that's much better =D) oh and lastly, because bf and I are trying to save up money for our future and since we don't want anything (materialistic) this year we decided to not spend money on presents and save it up for future needs. We stayed home on xmas day, made diiner and watched a couple of reallly good movies the CLICK, and a chinese movie called Yip Mann (chinese translation of the name). This is a Chinese Kung Fu movie based on a true story. Yip Mann is the Kung Fu Master/teacher of Bruce Lee. It was such a goooood movie!! I loveeeeee it!!...wowww I am so OFF topic.. opps

Ok here we go....
