Beautiful You

This is a first for blush pearls..

I am not a beauty guru in any way, I just started to love the art of doing my own makeup hence the reason why this look is not as polished as it should be πŸ™‚ Part of my resolution for 2014 is to embrace optimism and with that I need to focus on “the self” because I strongly believe that if you look good you’ll feel good about yourself, and all the positive energy in the world will surely surge in, don’t you agree? πŸ™‚

The latter part of 2013, I started doing make-ups for the fun shoots that I’ve done for this blog. Β Learning how to do your own make-up and especially how to apply other’s make-up entails a lot of practice and patience. Β Applying make-up is not rocket science but being happy and satisfied with the outcome (especially if it looks professional & polished) could be daunting. Β So, my personal goal for this year is to be better in this not-so-cheap, new-found hobby πŸ™‚ Of course my go-to make-up tutorials are those from the top beauty gurus in Youtube namely: Jaclyn Hill, Nicole Guerriero, Lauren Curtis,Β Chloe Morello, Jen of From Head to toe and Michelle PhanΒ I seriously get a lot of make-up and beauty inspirations from them you might also want to check them out…
