    I really like terriers. They are so smart! In my neighborhood there’s a Jack Russel who chases me on occasion. I don’t know his real name but I call him Shifty McIntyre.

    Hi Lisa,

    That’s great non-makeup related advice. I will have to really try to do that this week.

  27. Karen says:

    Hi Victoria,

    My friend, Mark, introduced me to the “Will this matter in 10 years” concept a few years ago. It really puts things in perspective. Thanks for reminding me of that one… it’s a good one to have in your arsenal when you’re tempted to freak out (I use it often, LOL).

  28. Karen says:


    We are lipgloss twins today. 🙂

  29. Karen says:

    Hi Tania,

  33. Karen says:

    Hi Meimei,

    I’m going to have to borrow one of your goals — I’m going to try and smile more often this week, too!

  34. Karen says:

    Hi Mimi,

    I love Audrey Hepburn and her classic style. Did you use a gel liner or a pencil liner to get the look?

  35. Karen says:

    Hi Lehea!

    When do you leave for the islands?

    I am with you on the moisturizer before foundation trick. I also use a good moisturizer before I apply eye makeup. It seems to make a difference in payoff.

    Well, my friend came for a weekend sleepover on Friday and left today so that’s pretty much all I’ve been up to of late 😀 I must say I’m glad to have my own space again. Apparently I’m not quite capable of sharing my room and my life with someone 24/7. Oh well 😀 This week is going to be hectic. I’ll be meeting some friends and I should clean my room etc. Oh, and last week I ordered MAC’s Fresh Green Mix and Warming Trend (I know, I’m a bit late but that’s life when you live in a country with only ONE MAC counter LOL) and I should get those any day now! 😀

    Have you got any major plans for this week? Enjoy your evening! Take care!

    Alekss last blog post..What’s In Your Bag?

  44. Karen says:

    Hi Aleks!

    It’s hard to share space when you’re used to having your own. When El Hub and I first moved in together a few years ago it was rrrrrrough!

    You will love Fresh Green Mix! It’s so pretty. I’m also lovin’ on Love Connection. I’ve worn it for the past few days.

    This week is going to be blissfully mellow. I have a lot of catch up e-mails to work on and a bunch of stuff for work that I need to get off my plate. I ditched dance class and most forms of exercise last week in order to work on stuff so I’m looking forward to getting back into the exercise groove.

    What friends will you be meeting? Homies from school?

    Two cents of advice (makeup related): If you have super deep-set eyes, like I do, use shu uemura’s baby curler, and do the inner, middle, and outer sections one at a time. Beats getting bruises on the side of your nose from a full-size curler.

    Eyes: Natural because I’m not going anywhere, yet

    Lips: Burts Bee’s lip balm

    Eye Shadow Lemming: Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow in Fishnet, and
    MAC eyeshadow – rice paper

    Outfit: boyfriends gray shirt and black shorts

    Two cents of advice (makeup related): For a more pouter lip, use a pearl white/beige colored lip liner/crayon and apply at the bow of the lip and smudge, then apply gloss. Try avoiding the outer lip lines.

    Two cents of advice (non-makeup related): I agree, drink plenty of water. I never really understood the meaning of “the glass is half full”, someone please explain?

    Goals for the week: See my parents at my hometown. I haven’t seen them in awhile. Maybe see my friends… I haven’t seen them May. Shop for a good cleanser and finding my perfect toner. I’m thinking about the basis cleaner clean face wash after reading your blog about it. I have a crazy oily face. Any suggestions? I also plan to visit this Japanese store called Daiso and stocking up on some oil for my oil diffuser and maybe buy my chihuahua a cute t-shirt. They have a few Daiso stores in the East bay and Daly City, I believe. They sell a whole bunch of $1.50 and up Asian stuff. The only thing that sucks is no refund/exchange, so be cautious about what you buy.

  70. ines says:

    longtime lurker here! i love, love this blog!
    today i finally decided to post…

    Mood: tired, but not unhappy

    Eyes: simple neutral lined look – stila eyeshadow [kitten], MAC liquidlast [inky] (a color i cannot live without, makes my brown asian eyes pop like nothing else), bottom lid lined in laneige multishaping eyeliner over/inner liner for inner rims [navy] (an awesome eyeliner that i found in korea this summer, does not run or smudge in 80% humidity that is the korean summer)

    Fragrance: issey miyake l’eau d’issey [EDP concentration]

    Breakfast: 2 green kiwifruit + lowfat yogurt, tall starbucks coffee – black, a small bowl of cheerios

    Lips: benefit thegloss [chaperone]

    Eye Shadow Lemming: already have too many. cannot lemm (?) any more, although i am dying to look for a orchid purple eyeshadow… any suggestions?

    Outfit: black racerback tank + black wide-leg suit pants + hot pink structured 3/4 jacket + black peep-toe patent leather pumps + skinny black patent leather belt + large onyx chandelier earrings set in silver + 2 thin silver bangles + oversize sunglasses – the way i dress for work.

    Two cents of advice (makeup related): TAKING OFF your makeup properly is more important than piling on a ton. i recommend MAC cleanse off oil to take off the heavy duty stuff (warm a pump or two in your hands, and massage in for 2-3 minutes. the warmth from your hands also clears blackheads, i swear!), then follow with a fresh, nonirritating foaming cleanser. i like avene cleanance foaming gel cleanser for sensitive blemished skins (i often get angry, congested skin).

    Two cents of advice (non-makeup related): POSTURE, POSTURE. i find too many people these days slouch. this makes them look like they’re not confident about who they are… when every girl should feel like she’s the queen of the world! as a ballroom dancer i’ve always been taught long lines will add so much to your appearance. try this:
    starting from the base of your spine, at the waist, imagine your spine getting longer and adjust your vertebrae so they feel like they’re neatly stacked on top of each other.
    now, slightly tighten your ab muscles (tighten, not suck in your stomach) – this will help you keep your core balanced. over time, it will also help with the tone of your tummy 😉
    lengthen your neck. imagine you have the miss universe tiara on the top of your head and that it can NEVER fall off while you are standing, sitting or walking. your head should be held proud, and slightly arrogantly.
    lower your shoulders and push back slightly, imagining that your scapula (shoulder bones) are converging, or touching in the back where your spine is.

    this is called the “pulled up” position in dance. if you repeat it enough, you will find your posture becomes straighter, and that you have better tone in your abdominal muscles, as well as less back/shoulder and neck tension/pain.

    Goals for the week:
    1. reduce caffeine intake to two coffees a day, and drink more H20 :). also, try and sleep before midnight on work nights.
    2. do not go lemming after products i don’t need. this includes perfume, shoes, makeup… anything that may lower the balance of your bank account.

  71. ines says:

    ps – sorry for the superlong response!

  72. Jekka says:

    Mood: Tired. Over tired. As in, it’s 2 AM and I still can’t sleep tired. Bleh!

    Eyes: Easy tonight. Bare Canvas all over my lid as a primer, with a sheer wash of MAC Naked Lunch over it. Voila, instantly looking more awake.

    Fragrance: Kenzo Amour. I can’t bring myself to wear any of my other fragrances. This is my absolute favorite!

    Breakfast: Two boiled egg whites and two slices of wheat toast (sans butter!) and coffee. And yes, was still hungry. So I had an apple for snack an hour later. LOL!

    Lips: Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey (applied very lightly) with C.O. Bigelow’s Mentha Shine lipgloss in Clear applied over. My husband loves this stuff. It’s the only gloss I have that he doesn’t complain about!

    Eye Shadow Lemming: MAC Fresh Green Mix (Electroflash) *sigh* BEAUTIFUL!

    Outfit: Pretty boring; work uniform. :/ Wish it were comfortable jammies!

    Two cents of advice (makeup related): To reduce the risk of getting oily lids, try dusting a sheer finishing powder (such as BE Mineral Veil or MAC Blot) on your eyebrows after you’ve finished your makeup routine. That’s where most of your oil comes from anyway, so keeping your brows in check will ultimately save your eyeshadows.

    Two cents of advice (non-makeup related): Meat tenderizer mixed with water to make a paste is great for sucking the sting/itch out of unpleasant insect bites; especially fire ant bites. My three year old got into an ant bed this afternoon and had to walk around all night smelling like a steak. But it worked! 😉

    Goals for the week: Go to the gym at least three times this week. Make prints from my digital camera’s memory card. (I haven’t done this in…oh, a year.) It’s time! 🙂
