Flawless Skin > Foundation Tutorial

So, we all know LOOKS CAN BE DECEIVING, and the magazine industry is guilty of this 99% of the time. So while browsing through one of my Popteen magazines I decided to expose this.  First off, NO ONE is perfect, so all these perfect girls with flawless skin?  Its like finding big foot.  So then it is safe to say these girls are like....people dressed in a big foot costume! I found a DVD of a Japanese gyaru girl putting on her makeup.  My first thought was...wow....her skin doesn't look too good.  But the biggest concern was....without the lighting, the makeup she had on looked VERY much caked on.  So here is the video, and then I shall show you some methods to AVOID that cake look. (unless you are trying to apply for Clown College, then hey, I have nothing to say.)

Maybelline BB Cream- Review

So it seems a lot of American drug stores are starting to carry BB Creams, so I jumped on it and nabbed myself a tube of Maybelline BB Cream. Quite frankly, it doesn't cover as well as Missha does, but I didn't get it because I wanted coverage, I wanted it so I could use it as a tinted moisturizer...with the extra additive of it have SPF 30 in it.  It was very sheer and was not sticky which was a plus! If you're looking for something sheer or covers small blemishs, with SPF 30 then this is the BB Cream for you.  It doesn't look cakey nor does it feel sticky so you can use it during the day.  If you're looking for coverage try, Make Up Forever HD Foundation. 


I wore it as a base here, before applying my face powder (Sephora Mineral Powder) and makeup. I give this product an 4/5 Stars for versatility, coverage, and weight.

HELLO SPECS - Sponsored by UberKawaiii.com

So if you don't already know UberKawaiii.com used to be my blogshop.  But since I have been so busy working on my career as a graphic designer I have no time to work there, so instead of quitting I let my good old friends Tessa Chen and Wendy Hijikata run the operations. Anyways, on a less boring note, I dropped by the office for a quick visit this week and scored a pair of Hello Kitty frames or as they like to call it, "Hello Specs".   I camera whored with them on. hahaha.

Korean Drama > City Hunter

Have you seen Boys Before Flowers? If you have an utter fondness for the main character of that drama (Lee Min Ho) you will like City Hunter (because he is the main character) I myself, don't care much for the guy but, eh thats just me. Anyways after finishing this drama, all I have to say was.....wtf! It was a complete rip off of "A Man Called God" except for the lack of good looking people in that drama, it is almost identical.  The ending, however, was a bust. I mean my brother was hyping it up so much I just had to see what it was all about.
I mean it wasn't all bad, it had its ups and downs. It just bothered me that, the whole time I was watching this drama, I kept comparing it to "A Man Called God"


So here is the synopsis on the drama in a nutshell, back in 1983 there was a bomb in Burma that killed a bunch of high ranking caviar eating right folks, orchestrated by the North Koreans. To strike back, the South Korean sent in 2 of the Presidential Security (who were present during the bombing) and 12 of their top men into North Korea in a covert operation.  This caused problems back in South Korea, therefore some high ranking officials in South Korean decided to abort the plan fearing that the United States would withdraw its nuclear protection.  In order to keep the operation a hush their own country sends in snipers to take them out, killing all but one.  He bears a grudge and kidnaps a child of one of his deceased colleague to plot the ultimate revenge.

RATING 3/5 STARS OKAY, not anything spectacular
