Wow... huge hiatus much? - WARNING: Very VERY picture heavy!

Oh my gosh, I haven't been on my blog for SOOOO long, I'm so surprised to see it still up! I feel really bad for just disappearing but I was just so busy trying to start up my career and now that it's getting a bit better, I actually have more spare time, thankfully!

I don't even really know whether there is anyone still reading my blog but I decided to update it anyway because I feel like my life is in such a good place right now :) When I look back and read my first few posts, I can not believe how far I've come from then, in my career, my love life, just my life! It's amazing and I feel so blessed at the moment :) I don't feel very articulate at the moment, probably because I'm not on very many hours sleep but I will put up some photos of some work I've done lately.

As I said before, I am in such a good place at the moment! Although I am leaving my current office job, I have been offered a place to work at a cosmetic counter (and I won't say which because I'm not sure whether I'm allowed to or not but it is one of the high end brands that I do love and use) and my freelancing has been keeping me busy as well. I'm working with another make-up artist who has her own company and assists her with bridal parties which has been such a blessing to me because I have learnt so much from every wedding I've done with her and she is just the sweetest and most generous person! (If you are reading this, which I doubt you would, CONGRATULATIONS once again! I really can not wait to see the little bubba :)) I've also been offered a position in modelling agency that is still relatively new as a make-up artist for their team. I am so excited as I've only been to the meeting this morning but I know that this is the direction that I want to take for my career.

I'll post up some recent photos of me, in case you guys are missing me that much ;) and after that, there are some of the photoshoots that I've done recently :)

I hope all over you girls are doing well and taking care of yourselves! xx

FOTD (I FLIPPIN' HATE MY CAMERA! :@) + Few Photoshoots Photos

Look at how freaking faded the colours look :( I used Glamour Check! and it doesn't even look like it in the photos! Thank God I am getting a new camera soon! :D
  • Dior Forever Foundation - #010
  • Revlon Colourstay Foundation - Buff
  • Chanel Pressed Powder
  • NARS Blush - Orgasm
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Jest - all over the lid
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Wedge - blended crease colour
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Glamour Check! - outer v and on lower lash line
  • L'Oreal Lineur Intense

  • Dior Mascara - Diorshow Extase
  • Korres Lip Butter - Quince

On a much more happier note, I've done a few photoshoots and these are some of my favourite photos :) I'm trying to look for some retail work but it is soooo hard right because there is nothing advertised for it :( I'm contemplating just working casually for the company my sister works for as a receptionist since I don't think the Clinique lady is going to call back (she told me she'd call back today and it is now 9pm... not likely I got the job). All the photoshoots were SOOOOO much fun though, I think I like doing photoshoots the best :) I just feel so proud when I see the girls up there modelling after I'm done with them :D

Swatches of Fyrinnae Samples!

So I purchased a few samples from Fyrinnae and I seriously love them! They are SO pigmented and for $2 they're great for value! They come in a little jar and contain 1/3 tsp of eyeshadow. I'll put in a little excerpt of what the company is about.

"Fyrinnae is not a "mineral" makeup company. We create unique cosmetics, all of which are vegan (this means no silk, carmine, pearl, beeswax, etc)..."

And the shipping is amazinggggg! It's FREE on orders over USD$20 and for smaller orders it costs #3.00 within US and $3.50 internationally!

I seriously HATE the fact that shipping is seriously ridiculous on some sites and I think that by making shipping so affordable they can extend their market internationally.

Eye Shadow Ingredients: Mica. May contain: Iron Oxides, Titanium Dioxide, Manganese Violet, Ultramarines, Chromium Oxide, Copper Powder, Bronze Powder, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, FD&C Blue #1, FD&C Red #40, FD&C Yellow #5, Ferric Ferrocyanide, Silica, Styrene/PVP Copolymer, Myristyl Myristate. All ingredients are FDA-approved for eye-area use, and there is never any glitter used.

(From L-R: Monlalivel, Tamarin, Sumatran Tiger, Cookie Dough, Druid Werewolf, Choco-Cake Mix, Knickers In A Twist, Japan, Bali Mynah, We're All Mad Here, Treacle-Well)
Quality: 10/10
Pigmentation: 10/10
Blendability: 9/10 - Easy peasy on shimmery colours, a bit harder on matte, which is usually always the case anyway.
Packaging: 8/10 (only cause I hate little jars :P I'm a sucker for nice packaging)
Overall: 9/10 - Fyrinnae is seriously an amazing company and the guys are super sweet and funny. NO, they did not pay me to say this or review this, I purchased all these colours myself and fell in love all on my own! :)
