五年の高校人生終わりました… Here Ends Five Years Of My High School Life...


Five years worth of memories have ended. Deep inside my heart I'm am shedding tears as I recall the times where we laughed and cried together. Fate has been kind to have brought us together in stepping up the stairs to another stage of life.





My dear friends whom I cherish the most, thank you so much for being so dear to me. The places where we always meet up in the mornings, the tables that we sat together during mealtimes, the classes that we had together over these years and all the special events and things we have done together would always remain in a special spot in my heart. Thank you to all of you. :)







My classmates of 5K, thank you so much for the wonderful memories you all have given to me. Although we were not close until the last few months of our high school life, these last few months have meant much much more to me than the previous years spent in school. Thank you for making me realise how fun high school life can be, thank you for teaching me how to socialize with people, thank you for teaching me to trust people, thank you for all the class outings that we had together and thank you for being such a united class. My heart will always belong to 5K. I love you all, thank you so much for painting colours in my life. We found love in 5K!



Negative emotions and perspective used to make me hate my school. Everyday I came to school because I had to, I studied the subjects because I had to and I did not trust most people after what had happened back in Form 1. It is very sad when I think about how much time I had wasted in lingering within those feelings when I could've had all the fun I wanted. No one restricted me from having a fun high school life, the problem was in me. But then everything took a change in August, thanks to the school concert where I realised that people can be good deep down and some change over time. I had only 3 months left then, but I was really happy that within these 3 months, my dearest classmates had let me experienced so much joy that I can't possibly comprehend.



Of course, thank you to the teachers that have taught me over these five years. You all have been such good educators. There are of course, a few teachers whom I slightly dislike however, I know that you all have gave in your best efforts in educating us to be better people aside from helping us to score in exams. Thank you for your guidance and patience over these years.



Thank you to my school principal too. Thank you that you have spent lots of efforts in letting us have a memorable high school life. Thank you for shaping us up in these 5 years. Thank you for helping us to proceed to our next stage in life. Thank you for your kind message to us before we left school.



Goodbye, Sekolah Menengah Stella Maris, where most of my high school memories were created. Time flies, and it has been five years since I first stepped into the school as a tiny and shy little girl. Memories of the first day of school is still fresh in my mind yet I am here expressing my gratitude for the five years in my high school life has finally ended today. I have graduated today.



As we open the doors to our new lives, I understand that many will part ways. Life is long walk down a path by a single individual, and people we met along the ways are people whose path had crossed with ours. But soon, we will part our ways and walk on our own again. There is no going back, so we must stay strong to continue on our journey. I am happy that we have reached the the point where our paths separates, but I will always miss those whom I have met along my path of life. Thank you for meeting you all. :) May we meet again if fate tells us so.

Just a short update here. :)




Graduation is coming soon. Soon will be SPM (major exam for high school students). I'm getting busier and busier each day. As soon as the exam is over, I have two trips planned and one event to attend. To Singapore with my friends and to Cameron Highlands with my family, then the annual Comic Fiesta which I will never miss, haha XD



I really do hope that I still have time to update my blog during that time as everything is planned one after another that I'm worried about my health from not getting enough rest between all these stuff planned... Also, I want to have my hair dyed before my Singapore trip which is 4 days after SPM ends... I hope I can really make it. :/



And I just remembered that I have to get my blog layout up soon... I think I might have to delay it (again) till after Christmas? I really want to change it soon but I can't because I have no time to arrange for a photoshoot for my header... Yes, this time I really want to make it real good so I'm hoping to get my photos taken nicely instead of the usual selca pictures...

Meanwhile, I'm starting to change the way I edit my pictures and such to suit the new layout better. :)




With so much going on, I still have lots of things which I want to do. I'm happy that I have lots of plan after my major exam but at the same time I'm worried that I might not be able to do all the things I want. Going on Singapore on the 10th clashes with my school prom so I'm skipping prom. It's not a big deal but seeing everyone going to prom makes me feel sad because I can't join it. :( Yet I hope they will have a good time there.




Have I mentioned this? My cat Tora is pregnant :D The pregnancy should be due end of November so I'm really looking forward to meet my new family members :D I love her so much and I will love her kittens too (^^)



I guess that's all for now. Will be blogging about graduation soon :) It's this Monday. :') I still can't believe how fast time has passed that I'm graduating soon...

Halloween look - Snow White

Halloween is coming soon! It's been so long since I've done a tutorial and I hope you'll like it! :D



Today's look is Snow White! She has beautiful skin, blue eyes, rosy cheeks and red lips. I'm going to show you an asian version for Snow White since my facial features are so.




As usual, I've applied my foundation, concealer and powder. Also, some highlights and countouring has been done here. You want your face to look flawless yet you don't want it to look too matte as you don't want to achieve a porcelain doll look but a glowing skin look.

Fill in your brows with a grey eyeshadow. Start filling them in from the middle then blend it to the inner edge and outer edge so that it looks more natural. :)




Next, the eye make up.

1. Apply Vanilla by M.A.C up until your eyebrows. Blend it well and this will be your eyeshadow base. Next, apply Cork by M.A.C up until your crease and blend well. This will create a gradient to your eyes.

2. Using Cork by M.A.C again, this time apply it to your eyelid crease to deepen the crease. I will recommend using a flat brush for better control.

3. Using the same colour again, apply it to half of the bottom of your eyes. Be careful not to apply too much on the outer corners or it'll turn into droopy eyes.

4. For Snow White, I want to go for a softer look so I'm using eyeshadow as eyeliner. Using a thin brush, apply a black or grey eyeshadow like how you would draw on an eyeliner. Thicker eyelining in the middle creates rounder eyes. Wing it out a little bit on the outer ends only like most disney princesses.

5. Using a white eyeliner pencil, apply it below your eyebrows, inner corners and on your bottom waterline. These helps to brighten up your eyes and creating larger eyes.

6. Curl your lashes and apply mascara. For false eyelashes, I chose a natural cross type which are longer in the middle as they bring out a rounder eyes look. If you want to lenghten your eyes, choose lashes which are longer on the outer ends.




As for her rosy cheeks, I used Rose Quartz by M.A.C. Smile and apply blush on the apples of your cheeks in a circular motion. I have also highlighted my cheekbones with a pink shimmery highlighter.




Lastly, you want to achieve her beautiful red lips.

1. Using a red lip pencil, draw a round cupid bow on the top lips. She doesn't have very thick lips or very thin lips. As for the bottom lips, you want it to be roundish so that they look as if you're smiling.

2. Next, fill it in with red lipstick. I used Viva glam by M.A.C. Using a lipbrush gives more precision.

3. Lastly, apply red lipgloss for that beautiful shine on your lips. Here I used Relay Race by M.A.C




By the way, remember to wear blue contact lenses as Snow White has blue eyes.
I tied my hair into a fake bob because I don't have a suitable wig for her... (^^;) But I would recommend you to get one if you're planning to dress up as her for Halloween. :)

My hair looks so weird here... OTL




Anyways, this look is suitable for daily wear too! Here I braided my fringe and let down my hair to show you how it's like for daily looks. (^^)



I've posted this photo on Instagram and got comments that I look scary and I look like a doll. Do I really look that scary???

I really like the red lips here but wearing red lips out is rather eye catching. I'll try to wear it out when I have the courage, hehe...



Anyways, I hope you liked this tutorial :) I will be posting another one up soon. :) I'm sorry that I'm not doing any gory looks because I currently don't have the materials for that and it wouldn't be wise for me to get that since we don't celebrate Halloween here in Malaysia... (^^;)

EOS Crystal Series in Brown

Last week, Mukuchu has sent me EOS's new design, crystal series in brown for review. As I saw them, I was amazed by the intricate design it has! I tried them on immediately, hahaha!





Here's how they look like. Beautiful, aren't they? :D I love how they have this gradient pattern which does not look too harsh when worn.




Indoor
When worn they have an almond tone to them which I think is attractive and natural from afar. The design blends well with my dark brown eyes and they do not disturb my vision at all. I was trying out a darker and more mature eyemake and I think these really fits the eyemake. (^^)




With flash
Looks so much better with flash!!! I didn't know until I took the photo! I'm loving them even more, hahaha! I didn't edit the colours of the photo a lot, just slight tweaking so that it doesn't look overexposed.


Natural lightning
The colour easily shows with natural lightning and I think that's great too! Brown eyes always look attractive yet not too strong like other colours. I haven't had any brown lens for some time and I'm really glad to receive these in this colour. In my opinion, brown lens are a must to have haha!



Colour/design: ★★★★★
I seriously love the design and colour of these lens so I'm giving them a 5. (^^) They look good in indoors, outdoors and with flash which I think is really good. (^^)
Also, I think they are really beautiful for brown lens!

Comfort: ★★★★
I have tried these while I went shopping and for movie and I think they are pretty comfortable. It's just that sometimes they might get dry but overall it's alright since it doesn't block my vision at all. Normally when I go for movies, I tend to take out my lens as it's rather uncomfortable after a while but these were alright. (^^) I have perfect vision so taking off lenses does not make me 'blind'. XD

Enlargement: ★★★
At 15mm, these give a slight enlargement. I don't think they give off a very dolly look but if you're going for slight enlargement which brings attractiveness to your eyes, then these should suit you. (^^)



Mukuchu is currently having a Halloween deal where you buy 2 pairs and get 1 pair free! Halloween is coming so why not wear some lens to spice up your Halloween dress up? More details here.



Graduation is on 29 October so I'm pretty busy lately... But I'll try my best to juggle around studies, school and blogging. After all, I've prepared two Halloween looks for this year! I hope you will look forward to them! :D See you soon~!

Moving on to the next chapter soon...

Hello!

Realised that I haven't blogged for weeks so I thought I should freshen up things a little!



I've been really busy juggling in between studies and lots of on goings daily so I've pretty much forgotten how long I've not updated my blog. My apologies... (^^;)

I am going to graduate from high school soon... To be precise, 20 days from now... I am sure that I will miss high school very much so I try to go to school everyday since I would like to have as much memories as possible before all these ends. :(

I don't really know what path lays in front of me yet, I only have a rough idea of what it's like so far... I hope things turn out to be the best for me :D



Anyways, since I'm going to graduate soon an moving on to the next chapter in life soon, I thought that a new layout for my blog would be nice as well! Move on to the next layout lololol~





Here's the colour theme for my new blog layout. :D

As you can see it's going to be a little more mature now, hehe (^^)

But I'm still trying to preserve some cuteness in it! :D All I'm left now is the header picture and I guess I can say I'm done :D I'm planning to change my layout soonest as soon as I graduate but if things get too busy around then I might have to delay it :/



I've been really into Kpop recently! Much influence came from my classmates. (^^;) My favourite groups are Big Bang and 2ne1, been playing their songs everyday! T-ara's songs are not bad too, but I prefer 2ne1's style hehe~

I've been doing exercises regularly lately and their songs are always on my playlist :D It makes me feel happier while doing exercises lol~



I guess that's about it for now, sorry for the lack of pictures, haven't been taking much pictures since I haven't been going out or have time to do tutorials. :( They should be coming soon. Since I can't stand wordy updates like these anymore too... OTL...
