VIDEO GAME HEROINES Series: Nina Williams

Hey everyone! I finally recorded a tutorial for the next look in the Video Game Heroines series. This look is inspired by Nina Williams from the Tekken Games and Death by Degrees. This was a viewer request by rubygloom5678 =).

Link to tutorial:

Knowing that Nina is an assassin, I wanted to make this both a Nina and a femme fatale look. And this is why I was going for a dramatic smokey eye. I smudged out the eyeliner on my lower lashline more than I would normally do for a smokey eye just to add to the femme fatale effect.

Pictures of Nina:

What I used:


Urban Decay Primer Potion

Coastal Scents 78 Palette Version 1 (purple e/s)

Sephora Matte No. 9 "Midnight Black" e/s

MAC "Yogurt" e/s

MAC "Vanilla" pigment

LOTD: Hello Kitty Romping + updates

Hey all. As I'm waiting for a friend to pick me up for a party (and honestly I'm pretty tired), I thought I'd post an LOTD and some updates. Well here's my LOTD:

Main things used:
MAC HK Romping e/s
Sephora Midnight Black e/s
MAC Vanilla Pigment
MAC Wonderstuck Lustreglass
Jane Not So Innocent Pink lipstick

I don't wanna do a tutorial on this mainly because everyone's been posting their versions of Hello Kitty looks. So this is just to share what I came up with I guess. Anywhoz, more to important stuff.

For those who have subscribed to my youtube channel, you'll notice I haven't been posting any tutorials lately. I've been so swamped with school that I'm either too tired or I just don't have the time to record a video. I just took one of my midterms today (a Saturday!) and I still have one more, with a minimum 5 page short story on the side. Lots of stuff to do! I am hoping to get my next tutorial on by next week though! It will be a viewer request for the Video Game Heroines Series. The heroine will be Nina Williams from the Tekken games.

So that's all for now. I seriously need to get some sleep, I almost feel too tired to party hardy LOL. Heh that's college.

MAC, Sephora, and Coastal Scents Haul!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

Alright, so recently I've gotten some new things to add to my still growing collection. Most of the stuff I bought I based on necessity so I tried real hard not to get anything I won't use! Let's start with brushes: From L to R: Contour Angle brush, Synthetic e/s brush, Deluxe shadow brush (huge!), and Mini Chisel Detail brush. Those came from Coastal Scents and they're all great! The next brush is just a smudge brush from Sephora and then MAC's 217. I used all of them already and I'm seriously loving it. I'm so glad I finally got a 217! Works wonders!

I also went to Sephora and while my friend was getting her makeup done, I decided to get the concealer palette from Makeup For Ever (No. 4). I've been wanting and needing this for a while now so I decided to get it after saving some dough. Along with the smudge brush and a cologne for my boyfriend, I spent enough to get an insider card and a free gift. The free gift I chose was the Givenchy Foundation Primer. Yay! And now for the main reason I went to Mac yesterday:

So my Valentine's gift from my boyfriend was pretty great this year! He surprised me with the tiny Hello Kitty case from MAC and when I opened it, there was a gift card! This is the first time he ever got me makeup, so that's pretty cool too. I didn't know how much was in the gift card though. So when I went to MAC, I first got my 217 brush, and then one of the MA's helped me out with getting some stuff from the HK collection. I already had my mind set on Too Dolly, which I LOVE by the way! I did a smokey eye last night using Romping (the purple-ish pink e/s) and it turned out great (I wish I had pics). And I was debating on whether to get a blush or lipgloss, but went with the blush instead because I loved how it showed up on my skin. So at the register I found out the gift card had $70 in it! So generous! I couldn't thank him enough. Oh and of course, I got the free HK bag =)

So that's it! I'm glad I stuck to my plan with only 2 items from the collection, I'm nearly broke! Ah, now I will save up for the next best thing on my list.

A blog?!

I haven't blogged in years! All the in- and out-going trends of xanga, melodramatic, etc. got me into it back in the day but here I am again with a blog!? Well it's only going to be about makeup and will kind of be the backbone of my youtube channel. Plus I can add less stuff to my videos! LOL.

Stay tuned.
