My Graduation (+makeup)

Goodbye college life!

Thank God I finally graduated last September. Majority of my friends have graduated in 2010 (yes, I'm a late bloomer :p). There were 3 processions held on three different days; Yudisium (faculty graduation), university graduation rehearsal (which includes a photo session with the rector), and university graduation itself. The poor me did my own makeup and hair merely because of 1 reason: too lazy to wake up early to go to salon lol. And imagine how much money I'd have spent if I went to salon, 3 days in a week. OGAH, unless I was a celebrity lol.
Nothing's new on makeup, only my favorite earthy colors for eyeshadow because earthy colors seem to be the most suitable for my warm tone.

Only added burgundy on lower line (and a little on the crease) to match my kebaya
My standard expression for selcas. Sorry keke
Dhani, Kadek, me, Olan

Haven't applied lipstick yet. I like my eyeliner here :p
With Dica

University Graduation
Orange on half of upper lids, yellowish-gold on inner corner
Hair updo done by Sari and I. It's called messy style not because I wanted it to be messy,
but because it was so messy so I had to call it messy style teehee

With Olan and Rifki. Glad we got outside seats. It was so freakin' hot inside!

With Tania and tante Yunda

My cousin Sheila was being a sweetie bringing me cupcakes with sweet notes attached :') ('sweet' word overused ^^;)
"Jangan lupa cari PACAR!" lol,  I won't :p

So-called Tiger Trio: me, Sheila, Kikit. Cam-whoring on the way home
Surprisingly I don't have pictures of my parents stored in this computer. So much for a filial daughter haha.. Gotta update as soon as I get my hands on my dad's mac. So, later!

My Favorite Eyeliner Technique (great for small eyes)

Posted by bukishine at 7/28/2012 09:24:00 PM 0 comments Links to this post
I think I'm the laziest blogger ever... lol.

For a long period of time I had been assuming that I had monolid-type of eyes. Turns out I do have small lids, but they are hidden/hooded and they cover the eye line. Tutorials for monolids especially eyeliner techniques don't work well for me. They usually suggest to widen the eyeline than usual so that the line would be shown. In my case, I need to put quite amount of eyeliner in order for the line to show when I open my eyes. But it looks like I put black eyeshadow instead of eyeliner because I have to put 'extra' amount to cover my hooded lids. Horrible!
So I usually use eye tapes to lift up the lids so the eye line can be shown. And because I originally have small eyes, I like to elongate the eyeliner in order to make my eyes look longer. There are many variations of technique, e.g. cat eyes, puppy eyes, ulzzang eyes, japanese dolly eyes (exaggerated puppy eye look), etc. As for me, to achieve natural everyday look, I often elongate the upper line as horizontal as possible. For the lower line, I like to draw only outer half of my lash line and then connect it to the upper line. How long or how bold the eyeliner application is depends on the occasion (and my mood :p). And don't forget to tightline the upper line :)

Here is my favorite natural everyday ready-to-go eyeliner look:
