FASHION FOCUS: LACED UP CANVAS WEDGES

Wedge shoes are probably the most amazing invention ever made when it comes to women's footwear. Its not only comfortable but also gives you height, for all of us vertically challenged people. I love how you can walk long distances with these shoes and not feel like you just ran a marathon.

The design of these shoes are also very casual but made with a bit of sophistication. I love how the materials that were used screams your regular casual sneakers, but when you look at it more closely, you can see that it's peep toe & who would forget the 4" inch wedge?

Wedges are a huge hit no matter what season it is. They are practical, convenient, comfortable & most of all, styles can vary to fit any occasion.

FASHION HIGHLIGHT: "LIKE A G6" SUNGLASSES


When I saw these sunglasses, I immediately thought of Far East Movement. I love the retro-modern look to it. Plus, I always wanted the sunglasses that the FEM boys wore. Also, this comes in a variety of other colors, including the blue ones that Kevnish always wore. However, I wanted to stick to neutral colors, preferably, black.

Anyways, these sunglasses are only $10 at 80's purple. I love that site! They have so many cute things <3

Oh lookie, me and Jo Kwon from a famous Korean boy band, 2AM are rocking the same pair of sunglasses <3 How awesome is that?


Happy Easter, everyone!

A Story Of Fashion

Designer, Natalie Sconce with her beautiful models.
(Colleen, Jessica, Ashley, Kayla, Jasmine, Katelyn & Polly)

Natalie's collection was a Bohemian Rock and Roll inspired with tons of glam. Which then inspired me to do a very goddess like makeup with a twist of rock & roll in the mix. I used a lot of gold eye shadow and tons of heavy eyeliner. I also incorporated the "drag" lashes to finish up the look. On the face I put a mixture of matte and shimmer bronzers to bring more light and glow to the face. The lips are then muted so it doesn't clash with the heavy eye makeup.

THE AFTERMATH PHOTO
I did makeup for all of Natalie's models.
5.5 hrs of standing up and doing makeup non stop haha! It was exhausting, but it was such a great experience. Everyone was so appreciative of my hard work, which made everything easier for me. <3

Fashion Students from the Event Production class with our amazing Fashion Director, Leslie Asfour. I love them! They worked soooo hard for this event <3


Overall, the experience was exhausting but it was definitely worth it. I loved every single minute of it :) & like what most people say, if you love what you do, no matter how tiring it is, you'll always end it with a smile. And, it's sooo true because even though I was sore from working non stop, I was absolutely happy doing it.

Overkill pt.1


 MY SICK OBSESSION. 
Here are my favorite pairs <3
So lately, I've been less into makeup and more into fashion. Hence, the excessive impulse shopping sprees on sunglasses, clothes and SHOES! 

I mean, I love to shop, but recently I found myself purchasing more clothing and shoes + sunglasses way more than makeup which is so crazy! But, I find it more practical, in a sense, I guess?


Here's what's going in my traincase for tomorrow's fashion show. 
WISH ME LUCK, GUYS <3

I'll be working from 1-6pm, so lets pray that I hang in there. lmao!



So, what's your sick obsession aside from splurging on cosmetic items?

MY PROM STORY
So, prom season is once again in full swing. It's crazy to think that went to prom about 5 years ago. WOW! How time flies by so dang quick. Anyways, prom was definitely a night to remember for me as I had the worse possible thing happen -_-" It was unfortunate that I had to leave my own prom 30 mins before it ended just because of a stupid hive.

Me and my friends along with my date went out to eat at Red Lobster (I didn't want to be rude & tell them no since everyone wanted to eat there) And as most of you probably know, I am deathly allergic to anything shellfish. So, I chose to eat scallops instead, but low and behold, I was also allergic to that as well. Actually, it turns out that I am allergic to anything seafood except for fish and mussels, for God know what reason, right?

Anyways, with that said and done, I had to go home 30 mins before prom ended and I missed out on the last dance as well as the senior picture with my senior class -_-" Sucks for me right? But, through it all, I thought it as a great experience and for all you highschoolers out there, definitely go to your prom.

Have fun & live your senior life to the fullest because before you know it, you'll be in college stuck with tons of projects and crazy ass professors. LMAO!

This was a practice makeup/ shoot. My sister's friend was so nice to lend me her face to do a practice run for the fashion event that I'll be doing makeup for on the 21st as well as my school's annual spring fashion show on the 6th.

Anyways, I know I haven't been doing a lot of FOTD posts because I haven't really changed my everyday look. For some odd reason, I'm still stuck in my neutral phase, which is not a huge problem for me as I have been loving my neutrals lately.

But yeah, I'm kinda nervous and excited at the same time that I'll be doing makeup for actual fashion shows. WAAAH! It's kinda nerve wrecking >_< But, hopefully I kick some ass!

I'll be sure to take as much pictures & videos as/ if I can to make sure I take all of you along in this  amazing journey. <3
