The long weekend has arrived! WOOHOO! Was just lying on my bed reflecting on what has happened the past 7 months and I'm truly grateful for the many opportunities that have come my way.
Then I realized that I haven't wrote about the fun we had at Nuffnang Birthday Bash 007 which was in FEBRUARY. Bahahaha!!
I always love dressing up for occasions, and better UN-pretty than pretty, because you know, it's hard to beat pretty. Lol.
Got the old school red plastic piggybank from a neighborhood shop, they're so rare these days!
How to turn yourself into a man
First, practise the smirk. HAHAHA! The middle one was the one I used the most for the night. I don't know why, but that's how I'd smirk if I were a guy~. Heh.
Sideburns, The More The Merrier
The sideburns were the hardest to get right! >.<
I set the base with black/grey eyeshadow first, but it looked one dimensional and too gentle, so I used crayon eyeliner. It was tough finding the right eyeliner coz if it's too creamy, it would smudge too well and look too soft. If it's too dry, it would be impossible to smudge at all, and the strokes would look too harsh.
I even resorted to using mascara to replicate hair in the last picture. But that idea was scraped coz it didn't work out quite as expected.
I super love my bushy caterpillar brows! Dark eyebrow pencil was used to create volume and liquid eyeliner was used to draw strokes above and below my real brow structure to add shadows and stray hairs.
These were the products I used, but the key points like bushy brows and sideburns were created with my all time favorite Heroine Make Smooth Liquid Eyeliner.
Introducing...... BUN BURGLAR!
Hiak hiak hiak! Dipped my fingers into black eyeshadow to emulate dirt on the skin, as if I just escaped from a prison and went to rob a bank again. 😀
Recommended blackest of blacks eyeshadows:
- Xtreme Black from Pat McGrath Labs Mothership III Subversive Palette
- Blackout from Urban Decay Cosmetics
- Noir from Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette
I cannot stop laughing when I see these pictures! My mum found an old-looking bag for me, which really completed the look. 🙂
Birthday Bash @ Fullhouse
I loved the reaction on people's faces when I said hi and they took a few seconds to realize it was ME!
How liberating it was to sit with my legs wide open!
BAHAHAHHA!!! SUPER DRAMA this Diya and I!
Love everybody's expressions! See the flying granite? This was taken in ONE SHOT. Heh heh!
Thank you Nuffnang for yet another great year! 😀 (Check out 2013 Nuffnang birthday bash!)
