Annyeong (Good Bye) 2013 :-)

One year is actually a LOT of time. But in the end, a year slipped by just like a wind. I felt like it's only yesterday that I have a big mission for the year of 2013. But now, 2013 is almost gone and today is the last day of December.

I feel lucky, because I've changed so much for the past 2+ years since I go to college, especially in 2013 (mostly in a good way). I'm a mega introvert person before, but this year, I pushed myself to be a little bit more open. It Is Hard, I admit it. And without the help of friends and family, it wouldn't be possible. But it's all good and it's all exciting, so I really grateful for the times passed.

Steering Committe of UKM PP Organization 2013-2014

I normally wouldn't join a student-based organization because I'm very shy and also very lazy. But since I go to college, I push myself to join some. And I'm grateful that I push myself like that. Right now, I imagine what I've been like without my organization buddy. Pretty sure I'll be a very monotone person with a very  boring life.

In UKM PP, I meet up with so many wonderful friends and best friends. And also being in a organization make me realize that in this world, there must be at least one person who need you. For example, one of the most exciting moment that I have, personally, is the rare experience to be a makeup artist for them when we were going to take our last photos in a studio. It's really fun for me, since I'm a massive beauty addict. The moment I apply makeup: the foundation, powder, and so on for them, I'll never forget that :-) It's always going to be a sweet lifetime memory for me.

About my study, this year I got a challenge for myself to make a Raspberry Py proposal which the very lucky person will go to Singapore for a student exchange program for approximately a month. Again, I feel like I'm the luckiest person in the world because I passed the test for the program and I can manage to actually go. The name of the student exchange program is TF-SCALE and we'll be going 3 months from now, at March 17th 2014.

Also very recently in december, I made a decision to rejoin SEO Academy aka Search Engine Optimization Academy. It's an online course founded by Bramantya Farid, and he is the coolest person ever that teach us how to made a SEO friendly website. I found SEO is an interesting thing to learn and I've so much fun studying in this Academy. I got some time vacuum from the Academy before, because I felt that I can't manage to handle my study, organization, as well as the Academy at the same time! But now, I think it's the perfect time to rejoin since my periode in organization is almost over.

So, that's all the best thing that's happen to me in 2013. Eventhough I love 2013, life must go on.
And for me, it's the perfect time to say

Thank You and Good Bye 2013 :-)

Prom Makeup Tips from Pro

My favourite prom makeup tips from Michelle Phan

Who doesn't know Michelle Phan? She's probably one of the biggest beauty guru ever in YouTube and she's definitely a professional in makeup. Some may call her: The Accidental Millionaire, but for me she's worth it because she plays hard to get it.

Anyway, in this post I try to gather all her makeup and beauty tips for prom, even from a week before that magical night. The first video below covers all you have to do few days before the D day that you may not yet think of: tame your acne, brighten your skin, lighten up your moustache, whiten your teeth, and more! It's so useful as a reminder for us.


The next tips is obviousy makeup. For prom, Michelle gives you the ideas of soft smokey eyes with perfect nude lips.




If you're inspired by this look, follow the tutorial in her video below. But, if this look isn't your style then go ahead to look for other inspiration. You can try to find your inspiration from magazine, beauty blogs, or beauty channel in YouTube.


The next tips on the following video is probably my most favourite. It's all the tips to look perfect on picture. So, say good bye to white cast on your face, redness, zombie eyes, and say  hello to perfectly even skin tone and beautiful bigger eyes.


The last video is a little 'out there' but I found that it could be useful sometime when you need to take a really good picture. This is the tips on posing for photos from a professional photographer that Michelle knows.


So that's all the prom makeup tips  with some little extra tips from my favourite beauty guru, Michelle Phan. I hope you enjoy those videos as much as I do and found them helpful. For more videos of her doing makeup, you can subscribe here.

One Day Experience as UKM PP Makeup Artist

Becoming a makeup artist? Never really think about it. I just enjoy makeup.

Yesterday was a very special day for Streering Committee of UKM PP. If you don't know what UKM PP is, it's a student based organization in my campus. There are 24 members of Streering Committee in the organization, and yesterday we did the last and the most memorable photo shoot of all time, the photo session in a real studio.

Very early in the morning, I already come to the secretariat office as told. There is a deal beforehand that I will do all the member's makeup. So, at that time, I brought some weapon with me :-)


I actually didn't invest on the makeup palette yet. The lancome palette in the picture is belong to my friend's mom. But the other products are from my own collection. So, without further chit chat, here is the snap shoot of all my masterpiece..

The Girls

There are 4 girls who does her makeup them self or by other friend, but mostly, I did it :-)

The guys

For the guys, easy, I just apply a little bit of powder with powder brush, and voila. Their makeup is done! If you're interested, here is also the snap of ech division. There are 4 divisions and I'm in the 2nd one.

 Daily Development Department: coming soon

1st division: Operational Intern

2nd division: Public Relation

3rd division: Discussion and Reasoning

4th division: Technology and Language

So, I hope you enjoy seeing me and my organization buddy.
PS: I'm in pink by the way, if you didn't find out yet.
At last, love ya. Bye ^_^

This or That Makeup Tag

This or That Makeup Tag for #MakeupTagEdition

It is officially December, which mean November has gone. So, Happy New Month! =D I've been blog walking recently and I found this site called Straight Up Glam and I read This or That Makeup Tag in there. I found that it's really fun to read this type of tag and I think it's a useful makeup tag, because you're not only talking about things that you like but also why you like stuff and why you don't like the opposite. So it's quite inspiring the readers as well. Without further chit chat, here is my answers :-)

~ MAKEUP ~

 

Blush or Bronzer?
Bronzer all the way, because it's more natural and I think you can never go wrong with a good bronzer.
Foundation or Concealer?
Now, I'll choose foundation but when I got a clear skin day with lesser blemishes, I'm going to pick concealer.
Lipgloss or Lipstick?
Lipgloss, because I don't really like my lipstick collection. And for younger girls, it's always nice to have a glossy lips rather than matte bold lips. It gives a hint of healthy lips. And, I'm a young girl, haha.
Eyeliner or Mascara?
Since mascara doesn't really change my straight lashes, I pick eyeliner.
Neutral or Coloured Eyeshadow?
 Neutral, because it has a point to make you more acceptable.
Pressed or Loose Eyeshadow?
Never tried loose eyeshadow before, so I don't have any right to say anything about it :-P but I do like my pressed eyeshadow.
Brushes or Sponges?
Brushes, because it's easier to control.

~ NAILS ~

 Long or Short?
Long, because I like it when I apply nail polishes to long nails, it just looks a lot more sophisticated.
Acrylic or Natural?
Natural, whatever it is.
Brights or Darks?
Darks because I think you can never go wrong with dark colour on your nails, when if it's bright colours, you know that it may doesn't really suits your skin tone.
Flower or no Flower?
No flower please =) I'm a student, hello. I need to keep my makeup as simple as possible.

~ BODY ~


Perfume or Body Splash? 
Perfume because it's easier to use.
Lotion or Body Butter?
Body butter, it sinks in quicker than body lotion.
Body Wash or Soap? 
Body wash, end of discussion >_<

~ FASHION ~

Jeans or Sweat Pants?
Sweat pants, I don't really fancy jeans.
Long Sleeve or Short?
Long please, I wear hijab =)
Dresses or Skirts? 
Dresses because it's easier to style.Stripes or Plaid?
Plaid, cuz it's kinda cute, especially when it has pastel color on it.
Flip Flops or Sandals?
I think sandals since it's more comfortable for me.
Scarves or Hats?
I dislike both, it's so hot here in Indonesia. But hat is more useful to stay away from the sun.
Studs or Dangly Earrings?
Earrings doesn't really matter for me. I war hijab so you can't really see whether I use a pair of them or not.
Cowboy Boots or Riding Boots?
None of them, boots again are too hot to wear in Indonesia.
Jacket or Hoodie?
Hoodie all the way. I like it because it looks cute to wear.

~ HAIR ~

 

Curly or Straight?
Depends on my mood, hahas.
Bun or Ponytail?
Ponytail, because it's simple and cute.
Bobby Pins or Butterfly Clips? 
Butterfly clips, since it's more useful.
Hair Spray or Gel?
Hair spray all the way.
Long or Short?
How about medium, hahas. I like long hair.
Light or Dark?
Dark. I never try to dye my hair into light colors anyway.
Side-swept Bangs or Full Bangs?
Side-swept. I have a wide forehead so I like to hide that fact with bangs.
Up or Down?
Down because I'm too lazy for up do =P

~ RANDOM ~


Rain or Shine?
Rain when I'm inside the house, and shine when I was out.
Summer or Winter?
I still never be able to see the real snow because Indonesia doesn't have winter season. We got plenty sun shine here, so winter it is.
Fall or Spring?
Fall because love the leaves color at the moment.
Chocolate or Vanilla?
Chocolate =D
