I tried something new :D


This past weekend, I was in the mood to bake. Since my mama just bought me a set of piping tips ( from Wilton, if you are wondering ), I really wanted to make my good look like pro goods.. :D

So, here the two things I ended up making :) Some cupcakes that I made for a friend's birthday and a cake, for dessert at home !

This is one of the cupcakes, the cake mix itself is a box one.. ( lame I know ) but I had to go fast for those one! I had only a couple hours to make them and frost them! I think they still turned out cute :)

Then this is my next piece of art.. I'm so proud of it! :) I did the cake myself, then I did the roses myself, then I frosted it myself, etc etc :) I think it turned out quite good looking :)

I have a new passion going on!! You'll probably see some more bakery thing on here, but this blog will still be a makeup one! Don't worry :)

Thanks for reading !

Hello summer!

It's nearly there! Summer! Yay!

For the occasion, and since a lovely friend ask for it ( you know who you are :D ), I did a summery look, with bold, bright and joyfull colors :)

(Don't mind the awfull quality... when I'll have the money for it, I'll get a good camera!)

For this I used :

-Painterly Paintpot from MAC as a base
-MAC Going Banana eye shadow
-Inglot 60 eye shadow (yellow)
-MAC Orange eye shadow
-Inglot 51 eye shadow (orange)
-Inglot 450 eye shadow (burgundy red)
-MAC Freshwater eye shadow
-Inglot 351 eye shadow (highlight color)
-Annabelle Hype Liquid Liner in Electric Blue
-Annabelle Smudge Liner in Foxy Grey
-Maybelline One by One Volum' Express

-MAC Viva Glam Gaga 1

-Annabelle Skintrue Natural lightweight makeup in Natural Ivory
-MAC Powder Blush in Mighty Aphrodite
-NYC Sunny Bronzer
-MAC Iridescent Pressed Powder in Belightful

And that's all! I can't wait to wear that outside without looking like a crazy girl since it was all gloomy, rainy and grey today outside..!

Funny Face Beauty's Dare to Wear for Japan!

Oh god. 

It's almost been a month since I've post ANYTHING. And I actually don't have any excuses. I've just been lazy, bored, uninspired.. but mainly lazy, I'll admit that!

So, now I'm fully back. I have hauls to post, review to write and make up to put on. Let's start with this :

A couple weeks ago, as you all know, Japan got hit by an earthquake and a tsunami. As a teenager, it was hard to donate money to help, but Alicia (FunnyFace Beauty) had this really awesome idea of doing one of her Dare to Wear challenge for charity again! For each looks done by her followers on her blog, her family will donate 10$ to the Red Cross to help Japan.
Simply awesome, isn't it?

Here's what I came up with. I got inspired by a street fashion look called Yamamba, or Ganguro somtimes.. I'm not an expert, but there's a full historical aspect of one being the oldest trend that led to the other, more dramatic and all.. They're known for:
-Overwelming fake tan
-A lot of white around the eyes and on the cheek bones
-Using a lot of black eyeliner, some girls as also been seen using sharpies and paint pens
-Having over colored hair, with things stuck in it such as flowers, bow, stuffed animals, etc
-Having 'light clothes' on ...
and the list could go on...

So,  here's the look! :)

Look at the colour difference between my finger and my face on the last picture... OH man xD

Anyway. It was a really fun look to do! I really enjoyed it :) Plus, it was for a good cause... That makes it a good reason to draw some twiggies on! Right? :)

I hope you enjoyed it! Thanks for reading
