The first look of today post ever!
Here's the product I used today to create a look for my mom. If look of today is supposed to be about my look, sorry then. I'm staying today, so I didn't put on any makeup. Instead, I seized the chance when my mom was going out to run errands, I literally forced her to sit down and let me have some fun.

Wow, now that I list everything out, it looks a lot!
I always apply lip balm (10) before I do anything so that there's time for it to moisturize the lips when I do the face and eyes. I always leave the lips at the last step. When rushing, do the lips on-the-go.
I mix the (1) and (11) at a ratio of 1:3, so that the coverage is lighter, to have a more tinted moisturizer effect. I use (3) to mix them up and apply them onto the face. People often complains that foundation brushes are no good, there're streak marks when using them. And they prefer using a fluffy brush(eg. MAC 187, elf powder brush...) But for me, I like using the traditional brush simply because they are easier to clean and dry faster than fluffy brushes. And yes, there are streak marks. But I just use the kabuki brush (4) to smooth it all out and then dust loose powder.
Then I use (2) to apply blush(8) and bronzer(9). I use the shorter one for bronzer and longer one for blush because (9) is a matte bronzer and (8) is very shimmery. Best if I use separate brushes.
For brows, I use (13) to darken the eye brows and (15) to high light the brow bone. (13) is my best-buy ever, it's the best eye brow pencil I've ever used and cost only HKD5(less than USD1)!!! (15) is originally a concealer pencil I got it in August 2010. It does conceal my dark circles well, but the magic fades within 5 minutes. So I totally threw it somewhere deep inside my drawer and totally forgot about it until recently I clean my drawer and was surprised that I even have this useless thing. I almost threw it into the rubbish bin but then I thought maybe it could be a good highlighter for brow bones. Turned out, it does a great job for that! I'm glad I didn't throw it away. It blends easily btw.
For eyes, I used (5) for a all-over lid color. (5) is a very shimmery pink eye shadow, gorgeous color. I just use my finger to dab it onto the eye lids and blend it out a bit. Not that I want to use my finger, it was because I couldn't use a brush to pick up the color! Weird!. (5) to me is kinda like a loose eye shadow pressed together. It's kinda messy to use but for that gorgeous outcome, it totally worths my effort. Then I use (14) to apply some (7) for the outer-V. I think this H&M eye shadow palette is pretty decent. I got it for HKD79(USD 10), and there're 32 color. However the it's not very long lasting, but still, nothing beats that price!
By now, the lips should be moisturized enough for some lip color. I use (6) for a all-over lip color, then I put some (12) on the center of the lips for a glossy effect.
I watched The Bridge of the Madison County last night. Gosh I hate this movie!!!! It's literally pepper spray for my eyes!
The first time I watched it was a year and a half ago, I started crying at the scene when Clint Eastwood stood there in the rain and Meryl Streep was stunned in the car. It's the best movie I've ever watched, no one-of-, simply the best. I totally love it, but I can't watch it over and over again because it puts me in such a sad, gloomy mood.
So last night, a year and a half after I watched it for the first time, I decided to watch it again. I was naive to think that I had the courage. The truth was, I cried even worse than the last time. I cried a bit when Meryl was on the phone and Clint was in her dinning room for the second night. Then I stopped. Then I continued crying when they were having an argument on the morning after, and from there on, I cried continuously. Nothing I can do about it, I was literally trembling!
I'm glad that I didn't get the chance to watch it in the cinema( I wasn't even born at that time!), or else, I'd look like, "check that poor girl, her boyfriend dumped her halfway through the movie?" I cried that hard! It's totally insane!
(look at that muscle! so manly!)
And Clint Eastwood was soooooo hooooot! I could totally understand why Meryl fell for him. I mean, he was like what? sixty-something? Still, I think he's the hottest guy on earth, even hotter than Tom Cruise, Hugh Jackman... He's like this ultimate hottest man since human history. I love him, great director, great actor. Letters From Iwo Jima was awesome too.
watching this scene was like having 2 pepper spray spraying to my eyes.
I think Meryl looks gorgeous in this outfit!
I think I'm gonna be very sad for the next couple of days just because I watched this movie again(stupid Emma! STUPID!). My eyes hurts today and they were swollen when I waked up this morning.
