Photoshoot with Stacey Nicole Artistry

Model: Alyssa
MUA: Stacey Nicole Artistry
Photography: Monica Ai 

Dusting off my Canon was probably the best accomplishment I've done this year so far.  When my MUA friend asked me to do a teaser photoshoot for her upcoming makeup business, I jumped for that opportunity.  

I've worked with Stacey before when I was a beauty consultant at my former job.  She would always give me tips and tricks for makeup as well as updating me on the current makeup trends.  Bottom line, she knows exactly what she's doing and I love it!

We worked with two models that day as well as myself.  They were straight-up naturals (not me).  Every prepared and candid shot was perfect and I had to scan through the 200+ photos we took to pick the best ones.  I have to say that my favorite pictures were the candid ones. There's something about it that really depicts natural beauty in a person.  

Stacey really does amazing makeup art as you can see in these photos.  Very flawless and precise yet so natural.  Along with natural makeup, she can also do costume as well as headshot makeup for those special occasions.  She's currently going on the final stages of her pregnancy and I can't wait for the welcoming of her baby boy.  As soon as she pops she plans to get back into her business and I hope to be a part of her projects in the future.

TUTORIAL VIDEO: Bob Hair with Flat Iron

Recently was gifted an Amika flattening iron from a good friend.  I haven't had one for years since my Chia broke.  I was devastated and wasn't ready to make another big purchase especially since I didn't need it at the time with my boy hair cut.  Now with my hair at mid-length and awkward, I decided to take this Amika and spice things up a little.  Watch the video below for the tutorial! Sorry for my shitty narration, it's my first time.

Sponsored Review: Esqido Mink Lashes

When I was working in cosmetics, most of my co-workers wore falsies.  I was never too into falsies because they were time-consuming, extra expense, and I just sucked at putting it on.  After working a few months with these girls, I've grown towards lashes.  I guess in a way you do save time and expense because there's no need for layering on mascara.  Falsies are also a lifesaver for those extra long days you have to keep your makeup on.  If all else fails and your foundation has melted off, your lips are dry, at least your eyes are still beautiful, right? 

When ESQIDO contacted me, I was ecstatic.  This is the company that produces fake eyelashes that Victoria Secret models wear.  Christina Milian also wears their lashes too!

I can't believe that it's been a month since my last post. How time goes by so quickly!  Let me start off with a belated Happy New Year but very glad to be on time for Chinese New Years.  

The new year has been showing great hope.  I'm loving my new job, my boyfriend just got a great job offer and our vacation is in a few weeks.  Things are really looking up and I have never felt so blessed.  

My two best girl friends showered me with love this month for my birthday.  Juvy took me to get my nails done, Haein treated me to an eyelash perm and both of them took me out to dinner at my favorite Indian restaurant.  I love these two soooo much.  We all share our secrets with each other and it's a basically a I-got-your-back-you-got-mine kind of relationship.  

Decided to try out these neko nails. Meow.  

Juvy and I fooled around with random objects in the room and modeled our newly done nails. :3 

For me, I have the shortest and sparsest eyelashes ever.  So I was a bit hesitant on getting them permed because I was afraid it would make it even shorter.  But it came out really nice!  So far they've been keep their curl and I feel a little more girly when I wake up. :)  It's so convenient now to have them curled because all I have to do is put mascara on my bottom lashes :D  I'm contemplating on getting extensions next! Anyone have any opinions about it?  I heard they're hard to maintain and may pull off your real lashes ><  I guess it's worth a try.
