Brunette Transformation!
When I look at my shots and see my black eyebrows under other natural-colored wigs (brown, blond, ginger), I get really annoyed. I know the cosplay-friendly method of coloring brows, but it ends up looking too fake on me. :( it doesn’t bother most people, I guess, but it bothered me.
I’ve been looking for eyebrow mascaras that would show up against black hair and provide good coverage. I’ve used eyelash mascaras on my eyebrows before, but none of the browns I’ve tried would work on me.
Mentioned in a previous post that transformation is my hobby, and I like doing new things, whether big or small, that work towards improving how I look for my cosplays or fashion shoots. I used the Dolly Wink eyebrow mascara for this look, but it came out lighter than I expected, so I layered it with regular brown to achieve a chocolate-y brown to go with my wig. I’ll do a review on it soonish, I guess. I just had to try this look to make sure it would work for this weekend’s shoot. :D
A simple transformation that does make a big difference.

I already cropped out most of my fiveheads, but my eyebags are a different story. HAHAHAHA this is how I’ve been doing my eyes for the last few days. A little eyeliner on the bottom with a pair of @dolluxe falsies on top. Had to use some mascara because my real eyelashes are nearly the same length as most regular falsies. XD

Transformation is my hobby.

The make-up, the wigs, the clothes, and the faces I make are all part of it. I like looking really different every now and then. Something I’ve learned along the way? DON’T LIMIT YOURSELF. Be creative, be resourceful. Get feedback from people, ask questions if you must (but be respectful about it!). 

The photo set is somewhat related. Around this time last year, I was completely convinced that I look absolutely cruddy with burgundy/wine red hair. Decided to give it another shot, because the style of this wig is absolutely gorgeous. I’m also not the biggest fan of fake lower lashes, but here they are! These were limits I’d set previously, and they may sound like mundane things, but these little steps mean the world to me! It opens up a whole bunch of styling possibilities, which means more room for creativity. I’m definitely not turning that down.

Also, that slightly hipster-Ariel vibe I’m giving off in the top left photo. XD

Got my new hair and lashes from @gothiclolitawigs and @dolluxe, plus my new palettes from @coastalscents! O u O I’m not the biggest fan of lower lashes, but I’m liking how I look with these. :D burgundy isn’t the most flattering color for my skin tone, but I think this works. :D
I look a bit different with these falsies, but that’s okay. I think I like it.

Girly eyemake~
I reaaaaally wanted to get good photos of this, but my camera’s currently out of commission. :( 
Pink is one of my absolute favorite colors to work with, and I thought it would suit this look. There are pink flowers on my top, but I forgot that the Rhapsody pretty much covers everything. XD
Also finally got to try the Dolluxe lashes! I adore falsies like whoa, and I’ve been itching to get my hands on these. I’m getting the rest of the designs before I do a review, but I’m liking them so far. They definitely suited my eyeshadow better than my regular falsies.

This is what I’ve done with my weekend so far…

I’ve tried on my new wig haul, and I’m super excited to try these Dolluxe falsies! :D I actually did sorta nice eye makeup, but lighting’s horrible in my room, and Philippine weather is absolutely schizo, becoming completely gray in the middle of the day, so I can’t depend on natural light. :(

I also went a bit crazy and hoarded a good bit of stuff from Coastal Scents. I couldn’t resist! I want to do more makeup looks because I have a bunch of wigs and falsies and stuff that I also want to get more mileage from. Stocked up on eye shadow (the 252 and original 88 palettes), trying out their 66 lip palette and their concealer. I’ve got plenty of plans for these babies! :D

I really hope that tomorrow’s weather is a little less crazy, because the rain is pouring in sheets and I have no hope of getting anything shot in natural light if this keeps up. :(

Love and kisses,
Vanessa

"Just Be Friends" Megurine Luka makeup tutorial

This is how I did my makeup for this photoshoot. First makeup tutorial I’ve ever shot, I’ll probably shoot some other tutorials/vlogs soon. My schedule just freed up a bit, so I’ll likely have extra time on my hands. :P

Also joining in on something really fun, looking forward to sharing that here, too! :D

Makeup saves the day!
Quick makeup look for a sick day. I went from sickly pale to normal-looking in a little under 20 minutes. I can imagine some people saying, “Why would you wear makeup when you’re sick?” I personally don’t enjoy looking like a walking corpse, it’s not my thing. I like to feel pretty when I feel horrible. XD
Spent the whole day curled up in my favorite blanket, sniffling and sneezing at everything. ; A ; I missed work today, because my sore throat prevented me from making sounds at all. I was mute for the day, I can’t teach without my voice. :(
Looks like I might shoot a tutorial of some sort later today, since I can record the voice over for that when my voice comes back. For now, I must return to editing essays.
