Let's talk about the artistic world

Choosing a cool makeup style can be difficult!

Makeup can truly be your best friend as it has the ability to completely transform your look by emphasizing your best features and concealing your flaws. It is very important to select and apply the makeup properly as not all makeup types, shades and styles suit all face shapes.

Here's are a few Inspiring Makeup ideas that I will want to do in a photoshoot (either myself or someone else) in the near future.

This one doesn't look as hard! I just need to find nice bold colors! I'm thinking "makup forvever" should work?!?!?!

I absolutly LOVE this one! Of course it'll take lots of time & products to get this look.

This one seem hard! I don't even know if I can get close to doing something this But, ey I'm thinking, as long as I'm on the right track and get something close to it than I should be good. :)

For those of you, who are a friend of mine--I'm sure you have already seen these pictures of me but for those who haven't, these are old pictures of me taken 3 years ago by a friend/great photographer name Houa Yang. She's super creative and good with makeups! These are some of my FAVORITE photos taken with great colors eyes makeup.

aren't these gorgeous or what! I hate people who can be so creative!!! I'm working my way there.hahaha! Of course I'm NOOO where near it yet. I'm really thinking of going into a beauty school once I'm done with my BA at Alverno.

Which one is your favorite?

10 Ways to Wake Up Beautiful (FYI: i found this on yahoo)
1. Get an Early Start
Make a habit of washing your face a few hours before bed. If you wait until you're tired, you're more likely to blow it off.

2. Sleep on Your Back
Note to Audrey Hepburn fans: Lying on your stomach is bad for "beauty sleep." The average head weighs 7 to 8 pounds -- a lot of pressure to be putting on your face every night. In fact, many dermatologists say they can tell what side of the face people sleep on by the number of wrinkles there.

3. Get a Lift
Sleep with your head elevated on two pillows, or put the headrest area of your bed on 2- to 4-inch pieces of wood. Gravity helps lymph and blood flow so fluid won't accumulate, Polis says.

4. Save Money, Not Wrinkles
At night you don't need to worry about eye treatments smearing your makeup, so slather on the richest formula you can. Polis swears by Aquaphor:

5. Sneak a Glow
Mix a drop of self-tanner into your night cream or use a cream that contains a bit of tan-producing DHA.

6. Avoid Carb Face
To wake with defined cheekbones, eat a high-protein, low-sugar dinner (try salmon and asparagus, a natural diuretic). Skip the rice, pasta and potatoes.

 7. Wrap It Up
To minimize A.M. frizz, sleep on a satin pillowcase or put your hair in a silk scarf. "Those fabrics are much softer than cotton, so there's less friction," says Harry Josh, a John Frieda stylist.

8. Find Your Inner Ballerina
Pile hair into a twist on the top of your head. "In the morning you'll have major volume and beautiful waves," Josh says.

9. Turn on the Hair Conditioning
Sleep with a moisturizing treatment in damp hair overnight. We like Philip B. Katira Hair Masque, but any rich conditioner will do. Rinse in the morning.

10. Pop a Rooster Pill
Trust us, we were skeptical. But after swallowing two Wake Up on Time pills at 11 P.M., we found it much easier to get out of bed seven hours later. Created by a sleep-deprived single mother, the pills contain an energizing blend of thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamins B6 and B12 and guarana-seed extract. It's formulated with a coating that releases ingredients into your bloodstream toward the end of your last sleep cycle, so you wake up feeling clear-headed, not fuzzy

***Did you find it helpful at all??? Which one?
I thought #8 was such a great tip! I'm gona start doing that from now on to see if it actually works! With such thin hair that I have, I need all the volume in the world. I was surprise by #2. I usually sleep on my back or side :/ and barely on my back!
