My Current Works ♥

Hey everyone!  Hope all of you guys had a great 3 day weekend!  I spent the whole Memorial Day with my parents~ what did you guys do?  So this past weekend, I did makeup for another client's photoshoot.  I did two different looks on her and wanted to share my work with you guys!  The photos were taken by Aiden (for those who don't know, my hubby is a freelance photographer!). 

The first look is a special occasion smokey eyes makeup.  She wanted to look "sexy", so I used dark eyeshadows on her and a bronzer instead of a pink blush. 

This second look was a Boa inspired cat eye look from her music video "Copy & Paste".  I changed the makeup around alittle bit to suit her face... so it doesn't look exactly like Boa's makeup from the video.  I tried applying the long false lashes on her bottom lashline, but it looked really weird on her!  This makeup looked really great on her~ she really did look like a cat~~ MeOwwww hehe

Current Korean Fashion Trends ♥

These are just some pictures that I found while surfing on the web!  I saw a lot of Korean girls dress like this in Korean dramas these days (like Sung Yuri).  I will start filming my fashion videos again as soon after I give birth! ^__^ Until then I will keep you guys updated on current fashion trends by posting pictures on my blog!


Baby Haul ♥

Hey everyone!  I decided to film a "Baby Haul" video of all the things Aiden and I bought this week for the baby!  We bought most of the items shown in this video at Babies R Us.  It took us weeks and weeks looking through websites and visiting baby stores to find a theme that we liked!  I'm glad we finally found one that we both liked!  I'm not a huge fan of "blue" color, so we decided to go for a neutral theme : white/cream/beige (Mamas & Papas).  Of course we will have other colorful things around his crib like wall decorations and different colored teddy bears.  The white crib and dresser set that we ordered will arrive around May 30th, so as soon as the crib arrives I will tour you around our new place and our crib setup!  I'm sooo glad I have a HUGE family so that I can get hand-me-downs~!  Like I've mentioned in the video, the shoes and stack of clothes were clothes that my nephews wore longgg time ago!  It still looks like brand new.. with no stains at all!  I think it's nice to get hand-me-downs from family members since babies grow SOOOO fast!  Anyways.... I can't believe it's already Friday tomorrow!!!! Talk to you guys later!! Bye!

Loreal Extra Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner Review ♥

Hey everyone!  In my "April Favorites" video yesterday, I showed my recent HG eyeliner that I'm currently in love with : the Loreal Carbon Black Extra Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner.  I decided to do a seperate review just on this eyeliner to show you guys how awesome this eyeliner is.  I bought this eyeliner at Target for $8.  At first I was thinking, "That is pretty expensive for a pencil eyeliner!", but now I see why it's alittle pricey after using it.  You should be able to find this eyeliner at almost any drugstores where they sell Loreal products.  I've always been using my MAC BLACKTRACK FLUIDLINE gel eyeliner to line my eyes, because the pencils don't show up as dark and bold (and smudges).  I usually use pencil eyeliners just to line my waterline/tightline.  Using my MAC gel eyeliner takes extra time to apply since I have to use a brush, and I have to always make sure to keep my eyeliner brush clean.  This Loreal pencil is a great product to use on a daily basis, and it takes so much less time to put on!  I just have to draw one line, and it's super dark and bold.  Whenever I use my other pencil eyeliners, I have to draw 2-3 coats so that it shows up dark. 

Here is how the pencil looks like.  It has a sponge tip on the other side so that you can blend out the line to make a softer look.

It has a fine tip when you first buy it.  I tried sharpening it, but it tends to break off easily and not as pointy as when I first bought it.  Anyone that is currently using this pencil have any tips on how to sharpen this so it doesn't break off?

Here is how it looks using the Loreal Extra Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner ♥ Looks like I used my favorite MAC Fluidline Gel eyeliner!

The first picture on the left is a swatch of the Loreal Eyeliner and my Estee Lauder Smoftsmudge Black eyeliner.  The Loreal one is the thicker line.  As you can see, it's highly pigmented and dark.  The picture on the right is after I washed my hands with water, and rubbed it with my fingers for over 30 seconds.  The Loreal eyeliner did not smudge as much or come off, where as the Estee lauder pencil came right off!  This pencil is highly waterproof!

There are lots of advantages of this eyeliner!  It glides on very smoothly, doesn't peel, doesn't smudge, very black, bold, precise, and waterproof!  I highly recommend this product for those that are looking for a great drugstore eyeliner!

Baby Aiden's first clothes~! hehehe ♥

It's a Boy~! ♥

I had an ultrasound this afternoon.. and my doctor told us, "Congratulations~ it's a boy!". Aiden Yunwoo 연우 it is~!  I was already expecting a boy from all the baby boy dreams that I had, so I wasn't THAT surprised when the doctor told me!  On the way to the hospital I kept telling Aiden, "It's a boy.. I'm telling you it's a boy~!".  My parents and Aiden's parents also dreamed about a baby boy (태몽). 태몽 - dreams about having a boy. In the Korean culture, elders always say that the older kid should be a son (큰아들)... so both our parents were really happy!  The elders were also saying that since this is the year of the Black Dragon, it's good luck to have a boy this year~!  Aiden kind of wanted a daughter so we are hoping that our 2nd child will be a girl~!  He is still very happy and excited to see his little "mini-me" hehe.  During the ultrasound, baby Aiden was moving around and kicking sooo much!  He was having a party inside my belly!  He was also sucking his thumb.  I read somewhere that from week 17, the baby will start to suck his thumb. It was sooo cute to see him actually doing that!  I can't wait until I see baby Aiden.... 21 weeks left until I get to hold him in my arms ♥.   Thank you ALL for the congrats messages on my facebook & twitter~!  I will show baby Aiden all the comments from you guys when he gets older! Anyways, I decided to post one pic of baby Aiden taken today! He is a healthy BIG baby at 19 weeks and 2 days!

Look at his long arms and fingers! hehehe  ♥
