Did my nails yesterday...literally ALL DAY! lol they look good though :) Simple glitter acrylic and huge rhinestones :)) The new french tip :)

And also picked these up at Walgreens :)) SOOO PRETTY!!!!
The lime green glitter has no pigments whatsoever, and has gold and green glitters.  This one is called CALL YOU LATER 932
The dark green and blue glitter has little gold glitters, with some almost looking turqoise and blue halogen glitters.  It has a green tinted pigment and its really beautiful.  This one is in NAIL JUNKIE 927.
They are both by Sinful Colors professional and are 15ml/0.5 fl oz.  I bought them at $1.99 each

Beauty Army :: Beauty Sample Subscription $12/mo

OMG!! I just found out about this from another blogger.  I signed up immediately!!  Watch their intro video about their subscription service!!  They sold out for their January kit, so right now you can only get their February kit if you sign up.  I really love their concept because they offer high end beauty products, and they even have full size products.  Best of all, YOU CHOOSE 6 samples or full size items based off of their survey that you take.  It was fun taking the survey, and you can retake it over and over if you don't see the samples you want to choose before you become a member.  They give you 9 to choose from, and you decide 6 of them for your monthly kit.  I am loving this!!! Plus its free shipping!!!

You can also check them out on their Facebook!

Here are the samples that I choose for my February 2012 Box:

I CAN'T WAIT for my first kit!!!!!  I want to try out these products already!!! :))  

Valentine's Day Goodies At Target

So I went in Target today and they had Valentines stuff out already.  I was there for a good 20 minutes just standing there picking out $1 stuff lol.  Honestly I feel like these are even better than the dollar store.....sometimes lol

I found some wrapping paper, so I got all the designs they had.  The foil ones are 25 ft, and the paper ones are 40 ft.  They also had eye masks.  I'm a huge fan of eye masks.  The lace pink one is better quality than the other one, but I didn't know it at first.  The other one has a felt backing to it, so it feels weird on your face.  I have to say that the straps are a bit too tight on both of them...so I don't know how comfortable it would be when I wear them.  

I thought that the lotion was a steal.  They are huge and only $1!!  So I picked up two of them.  They have 3 out, but I didn't know if I would like them or not, or if they are any good.  So I just got 2.  

Lastly, I got some cards.  I thought they were so cute and there's glitter everywhere lol

Total items bought: 9
Total price: $9.70 with tax

ใส่ขนตาปลอมกระดาษ: PAPERSELF Peacock Eyelashes (in Thai)

So I did two voice over for this tutorial, Eng and Thai.

Below are the products that I used to create this look, however this was not a make up tutorial...it was about the eyelashes itself :)



แต่งหน้าแบบ: "WAii - รักฉันทำไม" MV Makeup Look

แต่งหน้าแบบ: "WAii - รักฉันทำไม" MV Makeup Look 

I actually think that this was a successful look lol....and by successful I mean that it came out nicer than I thought it would turn out.  I didn't replicate 100% of WAii's make up, because for one, I couldn't see clearly her make up in the MV, and two, because I can't look like her...she has blond hair and we're two different people lol :)  However, I did it to the best of my ability and this is what it came out to look like.  My video tutorial explains and goes into details about the shading and various aspects into recreating WAii's look.  You can view it below:

And this is the original video where I was inspired to make this look:

Thank you for taking the time to view my article!  I hope that it was somewhat helpful to you in addition to what you already know :)  I tried to make the tutorial as simple as I could.  I am not a professional make up artist, I am just a freelance make up artist :)  Please feel free to comment or make suggestions for future references.  And thank you again for giving me the opportunity to share with you today my make up look.  



I bought these lashes from Sephora a few weeks ago.  They are so exquisite.  I've never seen anything as delicate and so beautiful.  The original price were $19 plus tax, but since this is a rather luxury item and not so much as a splurge, it went on sale.  I bought this for $9 plus an addition of 20% off through the January Sale Sephora was having.  

These lashes are made from paper and are laser cut to exact precision.  They are very delicate and very expensive.  I wanted these so bad and so long and not that I have them I don't want to use them lol.  They are too expensive for me to use just for once.  If you're careful though, you could probably get 2 or even 3 uses out of them.  They are also made very long in lenght, and you may need to cut them to fit to your lids.  However...I did use this for a tutorial which I will upload after I finish it.  

1.  Very delicate
2.  They are single use lashes
3.  Made from paper
4.  Sold for around $19 and up (look for sales!)
5.  Many designs to choose from on paperself's site
