a beauty post: summer beauty 101

summer is all about fresh and simple colors. no need too much make up or else you'll look cakey, ew!
Here I'll show you some of my beauty tips for your summer vacation, so that you won't look like a clown in the middle of the beach :)
1. Cleanse, Moisturize & Protect 
To start off, ALWAYS cleanse your face! Cleansing your face will avoid irritation, break outs and also redness. So, grab your fave cleanser and wipe out all those yuckie germs out of your face!
For sensitive skin, I suggest you to use uber gentle cleanser that wont irritate your skin such as:

When you're done cleansing your face, don't forget to moisturize it and also protect your skin using your fave moisturizer and sunscreen. This part is really crucial and you don't want to skip it! unless....you want your skin to dry out and expirience the hyper pigmentation. ughh no way! :x

2. The Base

 For the base you have tons of choices, like using today's beauty bomb the BB cream, tinted moisturizer, liquid foundation, powder foundation,primer  or even to simply skip this step. now you might have a lot of choice here but you don't want to
 pick the wrong one or somehow your make up will melt right away under the sun! I personally suggest you to use the lightest product to avoid smudgy face at the end of the day. And dont forget to lock your base using high quality loose powder!

3. The eyes

Now let me tell you that the eyes are the key to successful or fail make up!
eye shadow:  keep it simple by using earthy, natural color. You don't want people to notice your eye shadow too much    
 as if you're going to a party.
*ps: don't forget to highlight your inner corners, it will instantly brighten up your eyes!
eye liner: don't over do it! remember, a little goes a loooong way :)
mascara: make sure it's waterproof and yes, you can use it as much or as less as you desire. anyway, don't forget to curl your lashes before you coat it with your mascara. this little step here is really gonna help you achieve that oh-so-flirty lashes!
brows: don't use extra dark dramatic brows. that look wont suit the beach day,dear. I suggest you to use angled brow brush and fill in your brows using brow powder. Sleek make up have this super cool brow kit that you can bring everywhere!
4. the cheeks&lips
okay so this part is really going to help you get that fresh sun kissed look. for the blush, a creamy blush will do. simply add a little amount of cream blush to your finger and apply it to your cheeks using circular motion. and my tip is don't use pink dolly cheek/lip color for this occasion. you want to keep it fresh and natural. orange,salmon color is the perfect choice :)  for sexy bronze look, obviously swipe some bronzer using a bronzer brush to your face. this will give you that healthy glowing summer skin! 

5. The hair

hi, I'm back:)

(there's something wrong with my blogger time&date, it's already 29/12 guys)
courtesy of google.com

 it's a picture of me and my best friends at Prambanan Temple, 2011. 
we're no longer in one school now since it's senior highschool and yes 3 of us moved to another school.
 I miss them so much :( 


wear them with :

Givenchy handbagThe Cambridge Satchel Company handbag
Michael Kors shoulder bagLongchamp tote bag

And yes there's a lot of Maybelline up there but I am NOT endorsing,promoting or anything:)

if you guys have been wondering why I didn't post anything for one year it's probably because these factors:
  1. TONS of school assignments & tests
  2. I'm currently figuring out what's my passion and yes the answer is . . . 60% cooking and 40% fashion. well, I love both but I guess I prefer Culinary future like,chef? (Amen!)
  3. I'm still confused about what should I post in this blog. So, just so you know that I am DIGGING for inspiration everyday. like .."what should I post" "what outfit should I wear" "what's the best way to make the photo interesting" and etc.
  4. too lazy to blog! :P
and btw. .

been baking, a lot.

lets say my three magic words : Fashion, Culinary and Beauty.
     1.Fashion: I LOVE fashion. first of all, its our daily needs and second it tells people about how artistic you are. or even hmm how creative you are?. well for me, fashion is a combination of 50% art, 20% passion and 30% of love. my fashion style is more like modern,simple but still sweet&edgy. i don't really like things that are too glamorous like sparkles, or things that are too gothic, hmm i just don't like something that's too much. for me, soft colors and the right kind of textile will be your fashion savior. it will never be wrong. you'll look flawlessly beautiful.

     2. Culinary: well, maybe some of my friends starts to know that i'm a CRAZY baker. i love to cook! but mostly i love to bake treats like sweets, desserts & snacks. I think cooking is a way to express your inner soul. and i think cooking is so useful, cause hmm lets just be realistic, you won't be able to survive without any food right? and would you rather spend the rest of your life just eating all the same boring food? i bet the answer is "No". yes that's right, cooking will make you be a more creative, innovative and also talented person! and here's some of my cooking result :

a red velvet cupcake is a  beautiful, moist and lovely cupcake + super yummy cream cheese frosting &topped with a flower shaped fondant.

my simply powerful granola bars with oatmeal,raisin,sesame seed ,chocolate chips and honey . healthy, chewy, crispy and yummy!

Chicken teriyaki + sesame and rice. a nice menu for lunch dinner or even .. breakfast:)
my mom's tuna spaghetti recipe. this one is spicy but still, Tasty!
my totally totally totally chocolate cupcake. Yumm! this is my favourite one! simply gorgeous !

my decorative cupcakes are colorful but still edible. it contains buttercream, chocolate and love .:)
      I also bake some American Style Chocolate Chip Cookies, brownies and meringue pie ! they're my favorite one! but unfortunately i didn't have any picture of my cookies,meringue pie or even my brownies :(
      Anyway, I guess i'm starting to take this "baking" thing seriously. I decided to spend my after-national exam holiday by joining a culinary course in some place around Jakarta. Any suggestion? :-)
