Illutorial: Natural Bottom Falsies

When you have practically non-existent bottom lashes, it can be hard to get a balanced eye look. I decided to try out some falsies for my bottom lash line, for whatever special occasion. I purchased these cheapo false bottom lashes from Ebay a while back:

I got this pack of 10 for only a couple of dollars (MUCH cheaper than normal – but they aren’t as feathery as the more expensive brands). They looked good on the model, but when they arrived I found that they looked way too unnatural for my tastes.

For a nearly a year I’ve just had them lying around in my draw, going to waste but recently I discovered a way to turn them into wearable, more natural looking lashes!

So instead of the usual step by step worded tutorials/reviews I’m trying out something a little different: introducing Illutorials! Basically, they’re my own little spin on those picture tutorial things you often see in Asian beauty magazines, but I decided to shorten the name to ~Illutorial~ (Illustrated Tutorial). Hope you guys like it (sorry I’m so vain HAHAHa)

Disclaimer: even though it probably looks really photoshopped, it’s mostly my camera settings & good lighting. LOL. Credits to joannastar for the Bokeh stock!

27 Degrees?

AHHHHhhmg what is WRONG with my site at the moment?! For the past hour and a half I have been trying to upload pictures, to no prevail. ;-;

(Later…)

So. I didn’t mention in the last post that I had some kind of allergy, causing my right eyelid to sort of swell up.
This has caused me great frustration because people either think I’m like, red from drunkenness or looking at them weirdly.
Luckily for me, my fringe sweeps to the right so I can cover it up a bit hehe

ANYWAY. Needless to say there have been few photo’s taken this week. LOL today my outfit was pretty weird anyway. I’ve been trying to pull off knit-on-knit. Don’t ask me why. I don’t even know. One morning I just woke up and realised I had bought so many knit items that to NOT wear knit-on-knit would leave me with few options.

BUT I decided to finally upload the photos taken at Jasmine’s house, so I don’t feel quite so bad about dropping my photo blog promise quite yet.

However, I forgot the weather for the day (how unprofessional of me) so. Yeah By borrowing a few of Jasmine’s clothes, I came up with a Summery-style outfit, below. The aim of our get-together was to stud some denim, which she’ll probably feature on her blog. Anyway, various picture time

26°C: Little details & trying new things

Posted on 02-04-2012 | Tags:

So I finally took my camera to Uni today, and also decided to post all my photo’s and fashion posts on Daydreamt!  Apologies to any readers who AREN’T interested in fashion but hey, I rant about it all the time anyway so it’s nothing that new.  My camera is kind of shitty, not a lot I can do about that right now though.  Let’s just pretend that I meant all the photographs to be a little grainy. :P  Thanks to the guys and Anjie for taking some of these pictures for me! (and in the future LOLolol)

Firstly, I guess I’ll explain how I’m gonna do this.  All the fashion posts will be in the category fashion.  Photo/fashion posts will have the day’s weather in the title.  Why?  Because I like to dress according to the weather, and I like to experiment to see whether the outfit suits the weather- whether it was too thin, or warm, etc.  Here’s the thing about me:

I like practicality.

So maybe by posting about this, other people can get some ideas of how to dress to the weather without looking like you just stepped out of bed.

But first a quick recap.


Anjies Outfit:  Red Jeans from Temt.

I handed in my court report today. Then, after my first lecture and PASS session I hung out with Anjie, Brandon, Pua and Bryan on the balcony.  I love Anjie’s red jeans LOL.  I’ve been wanting a burgandy pair for ages.  Then I suddenly remembered I brought my camera and they helped me out with pictures.

ANYWAY.  Today’s outfit wasn’t amazing, tbh.  What I really wanted to focus on were the little details in what I wore today.


Bee Ring:  $5, on-campus stall / Mood Ring:  From young / Studs: Punk English77 Studs from Studsandspikes. / Silver Watch: $20, shopping centre stall /Beaded Bracelet with Silver Leaf Charm: (unpictured) $1, Cotton On / Hello Kitty Badges: (unpictured) Hello Kitty Melbourne showbag /  Nails:  Rimmel 239 Your Majesty (Silver), Revlon 680 Red, Estee Lauder clear top coat.

This is my favourite picture of the day, LOL.  Bryan took it after a few careful shots and another few spam shots.  I like quirky kinds of accessories, especially really unique ones.  I mainly purchased the bee ring because -coughcheesy– Bryan and my pet name for each other is Bee.  It’s a long story.  The mood ring is just plain cool, haha, I like how it changes colour and has these really unique egyptian looking patterns on the band.  I wanted to try out the studs Jas and I purchased so I put them on the jacket, nbd.

The nails.  I know they’re pretty loud- I actually really like them LOL.  I wanted to use the silver nail polish I bought (which was originally meant for those galaxy/space nails from Andreaschoice) and came up with this.   They’re weird, but so am I so whatever


Denim Jacket:  Cotton On / Print Shift Dress: Thrift / Belt:  Thrift / Shoes:  $70, Converse.
Again, really casual outfit.  26 degrees is pretty warm so this shift dress was pretty appropriate- very thin, breathable material.  Although I say it’s thrifted, it’s actually one of my aunty’s which she can no longer wear; it’s practically new and a lot of the clothes I get from relatives are.  Anyway, I love this dress so much because it’s SO comfortable and shift dresses are pretty classic pieces.

I haven’t worn my converses since Uni started.  Tbh I don’t really like the look of them anymore since they’re really common but at least they give me the freedom to run around LOLol. Also, sneakers tone down the dressiness of any outfit, which is particularly appropriate because it looks extremely ridiculous to be over-dressed at Uni.

And now I leave you with various silly pictures of me and my friends.

 

26 degrees celcius:  Lightweight dress + thin denim jacket = success.

P.S. Bryan was trying to show me how to pose. LOL.
P.P.S. Putting off doing my Microeconomics study ftw.
