Recent Hauls + Award

Over the past two weeks, I've been buying stuff that I need for makeup school. And since I'm just studying and not really a makeup artist, I'm just buying some affordable stuff and I'm not buying high end products just yet. I bought Celeteque because we need an alcohol-free toner, Pond's Cold Cream, Petroleum Jelly, Maybelline Cat Eyes Mascara (both Ms. Gina and Ms. Nina love this mascara) and some Maybelline Vivid and Smooth liners. For you Maybelline fans out there, Maybelline is 20% off for all the weekends of August in Robinson's Galleria!

From HBC, I bought a cover cape so that I won't spill or stain my model/client's clothes. I also bought a San San pencil brush. Ms. Nina is so fond of using this brush to smudge the eyeliner in the lower lashline so I bought one for myself for only P65! I also bought a cherry chapstick for doing men's makeup. And from The Face Shop, I bought a taupe eyebrow pencil, which Ms. Gina recommends.

I also bought a couple of pieces from Graftobian, a brown cake eyeliner, and a concealer wheel. In my classes, I've learned the importance of having an orange concealer (and yes, I do mean bright orange) especially when doing makeup for people with darker skin tones. I mix it with regular concealer and it makes concealing dark spots so much easier. I prefer a brighter orange as compared to the orange corrective color of MUFE because I find that too light to use on darker people.

Anyway, I am BROKE!

Moving on, I was given an award by Elsa! Thank you dearie!

To accept this award do the following:

1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.
5. Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers.
6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they have been nominated.

7 things about me that MIGHT (i said might) be interesting...

1. Apart from makeup, the three things I love most are music (of course), broadway musicals and Star Trek!
2. I'm not a shoe person! I rarely buy shoes because I'm too lazy, and I love wearing flip flops more.
3. I'm also not a bag person. Unlike most gals who love collecting bags and shoes, I'm happy with just one or two bags that I know will serve me well. I'm too lazy to transfer my stuff from one bag to another.
4. I'm hoping to take my graduate studies in the US in the next two years.
5. I'm really short and I wish I were taller, but I'm not fond of wearing heels since I do a lot of walking and standing.
6. I hate liver!
7. I get migraines easily. I just need to walk under the sun for 1 minute and here comes the headache!

I pass this award to
