Lorde Tennis Court Makeup

I have been wanting to do this makeup for so long now so I finally have. This is not a step by step tutorial since the look is so simple but just sharing with you guys πŸ™‚

The milkmaid braids are very easy to do. You just create a braid on each side of your head as far down as you can you don’t want too much remaining hair at the end so that you can easily hide it. You could part your hair right down the center but in the video she had it parted to the side so that’s what I’ve done. Then you just wrap each braid around the top and pin in place. When you’re braiding make sure to braid out from your head not straight down as it will make it easier to wrap it.

For my foundation I used L’Oreal true match lumi in w1-2 and set it with L’Oreal hydra perfect loose powder in translucent 916. I don’t care for the foundation much but am in love with the powder it has a very nice scent almost like perfume but is not too much. For my lips I used Revlon super lustrous lipstick in the shade black cherry. Her lipstick was much darker but this is the darkest I could get my hands on so I dabbed a bit of a matte black eyeshadow over it and blended. For my eyes I used my Mac paint pot in painterly and put a warm coral color and blended it out with a bit of a matte brown. I then took the matte brown under my lashes and applied some white eyeliner on my lower water line and some mascara but not too much.

Balancing A Geeky Life

Image

The diagram above is interesting and kind of cute, but I have a question for everyone. Is anyone else 2 or more of these geeks at the same time? — Thought so.Β  πŸ˜‰

I hope I’m not the only geek that feels as if I’m being tugged in several different directions when it comes to hobbies, interests, and life in general. I think as geeks we feel strongly about multiple things in life. Sure, some of us have one thing we are intensely passionate about, but geeks are most certainly multifaceted. This makes something as simple as choosing what to do on our day off a tad frustrating.

I.E.: “Should I read my new book or play that video game? Paint or go outside for a walk? Go shopping, or sketch?” – Britney’s Inner Dialogue

Why am I thinking about how to balance my life? Well, my boyfriend made a statement a couple of days ago that has my wheels turning.

He said, “It’s hard — I have to keep up with your geeky side and your girly side.”

I laughed when he said that. It’s most definitely true. The unfortunate thing for him is that those are only two sides of my multifaceted geek personality. It would be insane to try to stereotype me into any one category. In fact, it’d look something like this:

City born, country raised, video game playing, book reading, nature loving, pet addicted, painting, drawing, dancing, social drinking, culture fascinated, card game playing, make up and dress wearing, shopping fanatic, sports watching.. And ok, I give up.

Question is, how in the world does one balance the facets of their geeky personality?

To this day I am trying to figure this one out. Most of the time I end up looking like one of those people that can never stick with one hobby or see one thing through. That’s not the case at all. So far, my interests have been on a constantly revolving wheel. I spin it, pick something, go with it for a while, then spin the wheel again. It’s not as though I will never come back to it or that I’ve lost interest.

Theory #1 – The Revolving Wheel

Like I’ve said, spin the wheel to an interest, take it up, engage it, put it back, and spin again.

This is all I’ve got, folks. I’ve toyed with some other ideas.. like scheduling set times to do certain things on certain days during the week. I suppose if one was more structured that may work out.

I really want to know what everyone has to say about this. This is less of a stated piece and more or a, “Tell me what you think!” Please? Lol.

——-

On a girlier note, I dyed my hair. Due to Autumn rolling around, I went redder which tends to suit my paler skin and green eyes. Can anyone say Scottish? It does run in my blood, peoples. Hope y’all like it!

K-POP

For this who, what and why Wednesday I am going to discuss one of my very favorite forms of entertainment and that would be music, but not just any genre of music today we’re talking kpop. I had heard it before but never really payed attention much it wasn’t until i discovered the ulzzang makeup style that I became absolutely obsessed. First I liked the japanese gyaru style then I saw the ulzzang makeup style and I liked it better so I would watch youtube videos on how to achieve the look and playing in the background was Ma boy 2 by Electroboyz feat. Hyorin of Sistar.

I was immediately hooked. I had to find the video to watch which I put above and from the super cute boys, pretty girls and just really fun happy styling of the song that’s where I fell in love with kpop. I know I know I’m a little late it’s been around for so long now but that doesn’t make me love it any less. I used to work all by myself in this big building on the weekends and when I got there I would go in turn everything on put my phone on Pandora and put it on my kpop station and blare it as I worked. Pandora is what really helped me find other bands that I like as well as just browsing around on youtube. Everyone has their favorite groups and so help you if bash their bias lol but my favorite of all time is Big Bang.

big bang

G-dragon is and will always be my bias he’s so cute and incredibly talented I could go on and on. This group as a whole though is what makes me like it. I have yet to find a song that I don’t like and all of the members personalities are so great. I also have a favorite girl group and that would be 2ne1.

2ne1 2

I know keeping it in the yg family. I love this group so much just like big bang they have the cutest personalities and seeing them interact with each other is very entertaining. They are all so talented but my favorite from this group is Park Bom. She has a power house voice and is so beautiful. She’s my inspiration when it comes to my hair and makeup πŸ™‚

What makes me love kpop so much is just the amount of work they really put in and all of the dances to the songs are amazing. The songs range from high energy getting pumped up to really soft and sweet emotional songs. It has a bit of everything I love all rolled into one phenomenal genre. Below I’ll list my top 10 Favorite songs for the guy groups then the girl groups. They are in no particular order except for the number 1’s. If you have a favorite song or group just leave me a comment I love discussing all that is kpop πŸ™‚ -Kelly

Anime Music

Everytime you watch an anime at the beginning there is an opening theme and a closing theme at the end and there’s the instrumentals usually recurring ones that occur throughout the series during battle scenes or during dramatic moments. I’ve come across some pretty great ones and this one is my favorite. It’s so emotional and fills you with such pride and makes you want to bawl at the same time. Enjoy and if you have any favorite songs please share with us we would love to hear them πŸ™‚ -Kelly

Final Fantasy IX Soundtrack (Full)

What a great soundtrack. Β In the immortal words of Villiscaband1, one of the top YouTube comments on this video is as follows:

β€œThe music is so awesome and perfect to have in the background while either sleeping eating playing league of legends playing ff9 taking a crap cooking cleaning spanking the monkey walking the dog changing diapers taking another crap watering the grass and living basically.”

Amen, brother.
