Simple Springy Everyday Green, Gold and Red Makeup and Late St. Patrick's Day Makeup :D



Hello my beauties!!~~~~ :) Chuonie here.
Posting a very late blog post about my recent makeup tutorial on my Youtube.com/Chuonie
It was originally, a St. Patrick's Day Makeup video, I did in 3 days.
It was a quick Oooh, I'm gonna do this quick tutorial on March 14 and post it on March 16 moment. Yeah, that didn't happen as planned. 
But my job kept me busy from posting this on time so it was posted a day late. And And And, YouTube decided to stop letting me use their free audio on my videos without muting my original video voice over audio on their Video Editor. >_<  That didn't happen on my first video, it was so smooth and no problems!!! So yeah, being new, I just tried searching for answers and just quit searching and used another music for my video through my video editing app, hence that is why the music is super tiny in this video, but hey, at least you can hear me loud and clear right!?!? 
This look is also a springy and has green and gold touch to it! =D
I'm still learning all this, but helpful hints and comments are definitely welcomed!!! ^^

1st Beauty Product Review: Tony Moly Wonder Water and Skin79 BB Cream in Orange

Hi Everyone!!! Yet again, I've let you guys down. :(
I couldn't keep up the 1 post a month thing going.
My job took to much energy for me to do anything else.
So this time, no more promises!!
So keep an eye out for my new post! I CHALLENGE YOU!!! :P

I DARE YOU!!! :P
Every time I wake up in the morning it felt like as if someone beat me up and left me there.
Ever day is a tiring day, I hoping to break out of my "staying up late" habit as well.
Why do I stay up so late???
Sometimes I don't get home until 10:00PM from work and there's not much time left to do much.
Plus, I don't have internet at my house, so I use my work internet. T_T
Well, to think of it in a positive way, It's not all bad because I'm actually earning a little bit more extra money. :D For now, I"m done with the rambling.

The main point of this post is to review some beauty products! Let's GO!!!!
=======================================================================

First Beauty Product to Review: 
TONYMOLY Wonder Water Moisture Cream 300ml




Product Info: I just copied and paste. :P
# Features
Big size for all family members.
: Contains 70% of Alaska glacier water instead of purified water.
: Bamboo water offers moisture, witch hazel water controls sebum, and peppermint water offers cooling feeling.
: Moisture cream, moisture pack, body care, water balm, hair care, hand and foot care

# How to Use
: After cleansing, at the last stage of skin care, apply a moderate amount.
: After working out or going out, apply to heated skin by UV rays and heat to offer lost moisture instantly

RATING: 5 STARS

WHY?
It is an awesome moisturizer that gives you immediate moisture and doesn't leave you greasy or oily.
The creme evaporates after a minute or so and leaves your skin moisturized enough but not overly moisturize with an oily layer like some other products do (ICK). It makes my face so soft and supple after my skin absorbs it. Uwaahhh.(≧∇≦) In the winter, my skin is so dry and very flaky. -_- But yeah, this was the fix for my extremely dry skin. By the end of the day though, my T-zone does get a little oily, just a little. No biggie. Better that red, dry, and irritated skin due to the lack of moisture. The good thing about it is that when I apply this creme it doesn't burn like other moisturizer that I've tried before. It's awesome!!! I've been using this for almost 2 years now. Don't remember the exact date but yeah, it's awesome and didn't give me any break out or acne, knock on wood, yet. A BIG THUMBS UP!!!

My Thoughts: I LIKE IT!!! <3 <3 <3

Texture: Watery with a bluish tint, just a little can go a long way. But if you are extremely dry like me one finger dip in the creme is good too! Use the left over for the neck area as well!
Scent: A nice clean scent. It's not too overwhelming. It is not a subtle fruity or sweet scent that I prefer but I'm actually fine with it. :)
Size:  A big plus for it's size. A big tub that take months to use up and you have to share it or else it'll take forever to use it up! ^^ A def bang for my bucks! Oh yeah~~~
Price: $18.98 regular price on JOLSE.COM. That's where I bought mine. ^^

Without Flash: So dry right? Sorry for my gosh hands, I use a ton of hand sanitizers for work. A TON! I work with the public And I'm usually dry in the winter so the sanitizers didn't help. >_< Well, now you know if this works or not.

2nd Beauty Product Review: Skin79 BB Cream in Orange
  
http://www.beautysecond.com/store/pic/beautysecond/item/SKin79-Vital-BB-Cream-Visual.jpg

Rating: 3.5 STARS

WHY?:
I really like this BB cream because of the SPF 50++ and it's a bit less gray than the Pink one. I was expecting more of a pink white tone in the cream but it called orange for a reason. Actually much whiter than the Pink one!! I've been using this bbcream for a long while, it was an on and off relationship, lol. When you first apply, it it is a but harder to blend, especially if your face is dry. Please do use a moisturizer before applying this cream or else you'll look like your peeling and patchy. Use the Tony Moly Wonder Water with it!! ^O^ I wish it would give more of natural pink tone to my skin not make me look pale and ghostly/sickly. Have to use more makeup to give my face more color that the bb cream took away, like eyeshadow, blush, and lipstick. I've used the orange BB for a while but I don't tend to do much to my face. The lazy/daily me wants to cover the flaws with the bb cream and then go. ^^ Skin79 is my first ever BB cream brand. I am quite surprise that through out the day, I didn't need any retouch or was sweating it off or anything. So surprised that my face was not even super oily or anything at the end of the day. WOW~!! And it's quite hot over here too!!! Amazed at the oil control in this product! :) And it makes you look very good on camera! Covers blemish pretty well. My face feels soft after everything settles at the end.

My Thoughts: It's a good product! I like the oil control!!

Texture: Thick, good coverage, covers blemish well. Orange tint.
Scent: A pleasant floral like scent.
Size: 40g - months of usage, just a little can cover a lot!
Price: $11.99 on Amazon plus shipping. Sometimes ebay is cheaper. Your preference!

Swatches and My Pictures of the Product

My pic of the product.

Product info: Ingredients, Directions and such.

First swatch of the product. I kinda pumped out to much. T_T

See! There is an orange tint to it! ^^ Still had too much, didn't know what to do but keep spreading the product up my arms. >_<

I can see my veins! >O<, those are veins of a 7 days a week employee! :P

But it seriously did good. The next picture makes a bigger difference!

See how it made my skin tone whiter and more flawless looking on camera! Yay!

Waterproof too?!?! I tried washing it off and noticed it's quite water proof too! Still looking good!

================================================================

I'm still sorry for not updating as often as I should be! Sorry, sorry!!! Please forgive me!!!

See my puppy eyes? :3
I've made you guys Pancake Toast!!! 
*Oh please, except my apology~~~* sang in a Ho Ngoc Ha voice.

Yummy right?

Would you like some pancake toast?? :)

Well, here you go! ^_^
By the way, pancake toast is like the 4th thing I can actually cook by myself besides rice, eggs, and ramen noodles. Yup, you'll starve to death, make that two including me, we'll both starve to death if you have to live with me. Or we both can get fat from eating out too much! 
I've gained 9 lbs from just fast food and pancakes for two weeks! 
That's why I guess I've made "knows how to cook good like a chef" as a criteria for my future husband. ^O^ I mean, seriously, I can't cook. T_T I've made choco cake in a cup 3 times, thinking it was the easiest thing to make, like come on how can I possibly get it wrong? Not unless...my super bad luck comes in. Well. the first one, I ended up burning it, the 2nd one tasted to bitter because I added to much cocoa and odd amounts of ingredients?, and the 3rd one looked green somehow. A_A I don't know how I made the choco cake in a cup turn partially green.
Like I did not put anything green in there, so it's a mystery how I can just screw up practically anything. I gave up trying after that. Hahaha, I need help. -__- 
I make things impossible, possible with my hands, and not in a good way either. (-___-)
I'm not to proud of myself for not being able to cook anything good, or anything edible actually. 
I'm a bad wife. :(


I feel so sleepy during work everyday! I need a long hibernation! Life is soooo stressful!!! ;(

By the way, I have a facebook now!! Check it Out if you have time! :) Facebook.com/HiChuonie
See you guys next time!!! Once again, I'm truly sorry! Watch out for me on the next post! :D

1st Nail Art: Spring Summer Nails Inspiration

Hello EveryBody!!!
Back again, but this time I'm very late on the one post a month thing.
Well, here's my excuses, I've been busy working again and man were we busy the whole month of April and still is this May.
Even on my birthday, I didn't get to eat out or celebrate it. No cake, no nothing. :(
It's a good excuse no? *sigh* Too good of an excuse that it's sad. :((
My life: WORK WORK WORK. How boring. =(
Sorry Sorry Sorry Sorry. *plays Super Junior's song  Sorry Sorry* I'll even do the dance for you! :D
Currently, I'm trying to work on a mini project for my life here in the web. ^^
Yes, It will be another makeup post.
 I'm still experimenting with it and trying it on before I actually do the post. :)
 So please wait for me!!! Wait for this slow poke gal. Please!!! =)

Okay, alright, let's get on to the Spring Summer Nails tutorials!!
I've actually tried copying a nail art but decided to put my own ideas on it. ^_^
I kinda modify it a little. :D Original nail artist please don't kill me for doing it!!! :)
The colors are pastel colors and it reminds me of spring and summer when the flowers blooms.
Would love to see the Sakura's, peony, or lotus blossoms!!!! Someone, take me to see them!!! :D

WARNING: PICTURE HEAVY AS ALWAYS. SORRY !!!  
You know me, I like pictures. ^^
HOWEVER, less words and paragraphs this time!!! 
YAY~~~ LESS BLAHING =)

MY INSPIRATION


MY VERSION / RESULT



HERE ARE THE STEPS

WHAT I USED and WHAT YOU'LL NEED
Opps, forgot to include the fimo flowers in this pic. >_< Sorry. Yes, you'll need that too or if your gifted in art department and can draw your own flowers please go for it!!! PLEASE SHOW ME YOUR FINISHED PRODUCTS!!!! <3
If you don't understand some of the steps, please don't hesitate to ask me below or email me!! 
I would love to help you!!! <3

Notice: You'll need 5 colors of your choice, preferably lighter colors, and then you'll need 5 darker shades of the colors you've picked for the swirl of dots. 

STEP 1: Base coat your nails.


STEP 2: Do a french with the colors of your choice 





STEP 3: Use the brown polish to make two lines down the french.




STEP 4: Use the silver glitter of your choice to outline the sides of the brown stripes




STEP 5: Use a dotting tool to dot  the darker shade of blue or the color of your choice on the clear part of the nail .


STEP 5A: Dot the color in a line going up from the french and then do a second  line of dots but leaving a space in the middle of the blue lines of dots for the white dots.
A/N: SO MANY DOTS AND LINES!!! 
SORRY IF I CONFUSED YOU!!!!
 I"M CONFUSED JUST BY TRYING TO EXPLAIN. >_< 
I"M SO BAD AT EXPLAINING!! SORRY SORRY. :(
HOPEFULLY THE PICTURES HELP!!! I'm also a bad photographer. >_<


STEP 5B: Use the white polish color and  the dotting tool to fill in the middle of the 2 lines of dots created .



STEP 5C: Do the same thing to the other french.




CLOSE UP LOOK AT THE FINISHED DOTS AND DOTTING


STEP 6: Pick out the fimo flowers of your choice for each nail 
and then place them at the desire parts of each nail. 
To pick up the flowers, use the dotting tool dip in some top coat.
To make the flower stick to the nails you can use nail glue or a top coat polish.


DO use a dotting tool to place them on the desire spot of the nail to avoid any smudging. :)



STEP 7: Top coat all of your nails to seal in the polish and the fimo flowers.



THE FINISHED PRODUCT!!!! YAY~~~ =)





 IT WASN'T ALL BAD. :D 
 
Well, only the hershey's were edible, somewhat...
The other colorful candies at the bottom of the jar is blehhh. Gross tasting, so bland. 
It's just for decoration. >_< This jar is worth $30.00 USD.
Though I couldn't eat all of it. Lol, me being the foodie I am. ^o^
It was still nice that I got a cute little candy jar bouquet from my family! <3 <3 <3
