Going to Perth College of Beauty Therapy!

I am so excited right now that I've enrolled to the Diploma of Specialists Make Up Services at the Perth College of Beauty Therapy! I have said before that I was thinking of taking some time off university because make up is really what I want to do and after talking to my mom and my sister about it, I've decided to do it! :D I did look at other make up course available in Perth but there are none that is as in depth as the course that I've enrolled in.

Some of the modules that I'll be learning will include:
Basic Skin Care
Make-Up Application
Bridal Make-Up
Special Occasion Make-Up
Fashion and Runway Make-Up
Photographic & Glamour Make-Up
Remedial Camouflage Make-Up
TV & Film
Fantasy / Face Painting
Theatre Make-Up
3 Dimensional Make-Up
Make-Up through the Ages
Body Painting
Body Art and Henna
Facial Hair Application
Hairstyling for Make-Up
Casualty Simulation
Burns & Wounds
Casting & Prosthetic Engineering
Ageing Process
Character Make-Up
Special Effects

Wow that is such a long list! lol and at the end, I'll end up with 3 qualifications: National Diploma of Specialist Make up, Perth College Diploma of Fashion, Theatre and Special Effects and lastly, ITEC Diploma in Fashion, Theatre and Media Make up which is optional but it basically gives you recognition internationally rather than just nationally.

I seriously haven't been this excited in such a long time, I'm really looking forward to starting my course on January 18th :D

Unfortunately, that is all from me today, but I will be doing more and more looks and whatnot, even if it is just for practice for school. I will keep you all updated!

Skincare Routine!

So I don't claim to have the most perfect skin ever BUT... one thing has contributed to clearing up my skin! And that would be the St. Ives Apricot Scrub :D I tried this out when I was younger but I hated it so when I tried it out again a few months ago I kind of hesitated but I ended up loving it!

It got rid of all my blackheads, I rarely get any blemishes anymore and my skincare routine has never been easier :)

Morning routine:
- St. Ives Apricot Scrub
- Nivea Q10 Eye Cream
- Biore Nourish Moisture Lotion SPF 15

Night routine:
- Shu Uemura High Performance Balancing Cleansing Oil Advanced Formula - To get rid of my make up
- Estee Lauder Eye Make up Remover
- St. Ives Apricot Scrub
- Nivea Q10 Eye Cream
- L'Oreal Derma Genesis Night Cream

Treatments (1-2 a week):
- Aspirin Mask
- Laneige Strawberry Peel Mask

Most of my skincare stuff is from the drugstore because I like to swap my stuff around all the time but the St. Ives is definitely staying in my routine because it has controlled my skin so much! :D

P.S: I did order the 88 palette... yes, I AM ALWAYS LATE OKAY :P but it should arrive within the next week! I'm so excited! :D

Going to to attend make up school?

So I've been thinking of taking a break from university and start going to make up school because that is essentially what I want t
o do in the long run. I just want to see if I'm wasting my time and my money with university... I am technically still thinking about it and researching about what courses are available in Perth. If anyone is a make up artist now or is currently doing a make up course, could you tell me what it's like and if you've enjoyed it? :)

And I totally know this is totally a long shot but if anyone can give me a recommendation of any make up courses/schools in Perth, could you please let me know? :D

I have finally make a decision about the Mavala Double Cils, and ye
s, it does work! I will post up photos of my current eyelashes, but I unfortunately don't have any photos of my eyelashes beforehand :( I did buy it in Indo and I couldn't take a photo of my eyelashes there because I was so busy :(

And guess what?? I found these super old photos of me and MY HAIR WAS SO LIGHT! I couldn't believe it! :P

Anyway, I went to Godskitchen on Friday night and oh my gosh it was AMAZING! Blank and Jones are <3>
