I know, not my usual intro, but I felt like this today, lol. How are you? I'm very sorry for not being able to stay up to date with your blogs lately, belive me it's not on purpose. I will try and find time to comment more, but since I don't seem to have the time to blog as I'd like to, when I find 5 minutes like now, I try and at least give you a post!
So, today was my father's birthday, and as usual the whole family, basically guided by me, makes secret plans for surprising things to do together, presents to give him ect.
This year we had lunch at the local Corean restaurant we love and wanted to show my brother and his gf, headed to an art exhibition later we all were interested in and that was amazing beyond expectations and came back home where an orange cake and tea were waiting for us for a snack with candles and presents, among which was an art exhibitions themed movie we just saw tonight: "The Maiden Heist", with Morgan Freeman, William H. Macy and Christopher Walken.
My hair is greasy but I didn't feel like washing it, so I had previously decided I'd wear an updo and I wanted to look like a fun and girly little daddy's girl..haha! I am in a phase where I want to re-start doing my daily basis makeup maybe my edgy, visible way, but using neutral/natural colors and thecniques. So, after randomly seing a video on YT, I've decied I wanted to look like this:
So I took inspiration for both makeup and hairstyle and did it my own way. I've used my The Balm Nude Tude palette (one of my all time favourite go-tos) along with my Bottega Verde Trio Intense Shadow Wet & Dry in the shade Natural Nouances, because I wanted the look to be shimmery, to make it more sparkling and fun, my trusty Colourpop lippie stix in Lumière, did a very light an natural base my usual way (tinted moisturizer, cream contour kit + shimmery bronzer & setting powder, which I'm starting to love), used an eyeshadow to highlight my cheekbones ever so slightly, and I ended up looking like so:
Also, this look is dedicated to one of the last and most sad losses of 2016: Carrie Fisher. While Princess Leya will always live in the world of fairytales, my father and I were very shocked that the protagonist of a saga he made me love in the first place (it's thanks to him that I love science fiction) has passed away so soon.
My father's birthday was also the day the villain of another movie we love: Biff Tannen from Back To The Future part II, the alternative bad present, took place as the President, and it made me so emotional that the paladin of the Rebellion, helped women rise up and stand up for our rights today.
