Burgundy Makeup ☾ 버건디 메이크업

Saturday, June 10, 2017

Hello, dreamers! I'm back with yet another makeup video. I dyed my hair a burgundy color the other day (best hair dye I've used so far, by the way. I'll talk about that in another post). So I wanted to create a look to go with my hair. I actually got a beautiful Burgundy eyeshadow from Etude House quite some time ago but I never used it until now. I'm so glad I got a opportunity to use it and I'll definitely start using it more. Don't know why I didn't before! Take a look at my video below~



Anyway, this look is more of a party look because it's quite dramatic, sultry and a bit vampy. I really like it! I definitely wanna wear this the next time I go out and slay with my girlfriends. By the way, I was gonna do a voiceover for this video because it has been requested, but I suddenly ran out of time and ended up not doing it. I upload to my channel pretty randomly but I'm trying to upload a video once or twice a week. On top of that I also go to school and recently started dancing. It's a bit overwhelming for my lazy self, haha. Anyway, Let me know what you would like to see next! And would you like to hear me doing a voiceover on me next video?

Thank you so much for reading and watching. Your support means a lot to me! See you next time~

[Review] Etude House Cashmere Fit Eyeshadow [리뷰] 에뛰드 캐시미어 핏 아이즈

Friday, June 9, 2017

Hello, dreamers! I'm back with another review of one of Etude House NEW eyeshadow collections, Cashmere Fit Eyes! They also launched a collection called Satin Fit Eyes, but for now I'll show you my favourite colors from the Cashmere Fit collection. Let's take a look!



In the pictures above are all of the eyeshadows in the new Cashmere Fit Eyes Collection. The ones I got are the following:

From left to right: BK801 Long Black / 롱 블랙, BR408 Lungo Grande / 룽고 그란데, BR407 Espresso Con Panna / 에스프레소 콘파냐, BR406 Mocha Port / 모카 포트, PP501 Purple Kakao Latte / 퍼플 카카오 라떼, BE101 Flat White / 플랫 화이트


First of all I want to say that I'm actually a big fan of the sleek and simple design. Their original heart-engraved design is really cute, but it's nice to see a clean design like this too.

Swatches on the back of my hand:

The texture of the eyeshadows is really fine and smooth and they are also really pigmented. I really have to say that I've been looking for a good and pigmented black eyeshadow in my price-range for a really long time and I absolutely lost my shit when I saw that Etude House finally has a solid black eyeshadow which came with this new collection.

Overall, I think these eyeshadows are great to create natural and nude looks. The colors that come in both warm and cool tones are really pretty and suit a lot of skin tones. My favourites are the BK801 and the BR407. I really recommend them if you're looking for some amazing nude eyeshadows.

The thing I like the most about all of Etude House's eyeshadow is that their quality just as amazing as any expensive brand eyeshadow out there, but at a much lower price. These ones in particular are only 5,500KRW each!

On my Youtube Channel, I also posted a video where I created a soft and smokey eye makeup look using all of the eyeshadows that I got from this collection. Check it out!


Thank you so so much for reading and watching! Your support means a lot to me! Bye for now, dreamers!

[Review] eZn Real Milk Hair Colour Pastel Purple [리뷰] 리얼 밀크 헤어컬러 파스텔 퍼플

Thursday, May 25, 2017

Hi, dreamers! I'm back with a review of another purple hair dye. I previously tried and loved the eZn Shaking Pudding Hair Color in Smoky Lavender which gave me a really pretty result but it unfortunately only lasted a couple of washes before it faded. This time, I'm trying the eZn Real Milk Hair Colour in Pastel Purple. Like the Shaking pudding hair dye, this dye comes in a lot of natural colors as well as a decent selection of vivid and pastel colors. The packaging is super cute too! Even the bottle and tube look really cute and fit the milk theme really well.

     

Based on the color chart at the side of the box, this hair dye will supposedly dye both virgin hair and bleached hair to a quite strong purple color. Most hair dyes that I've tried usually only stick to either my bleached hair or my roots - it never gets dyed equally. So I'm pretty excited that this hair color seems to dye both bleached/dyed hair and un-dyed hair.


This dye includes 1 tube of color cream, 1 bottle of dyeing agent, 1 plastic 'gown' to cover yourself and your clothes, 1 pair of gloves, a bonding hair pack, and of course, instructions. The instructions are really easy to follow even if you can't read korean, because of the clear and simple illustrations for each step. In any case, I'll explain the dyeing process briefly anyway.

First of all, be careful not to get any of the hair dye on your floor or furniture, because it will most likely stain. Prepare by covering your clothes with the plastic gown and put on your gloves. Make sure your hair is dry before starting the application.

Tip! The best time to dye your hair is when it's dirty/oily. If you wash your hair right before dyeing it, you're removing the natural oils from you hair which protects it, and by removing all the natural oils your hair will also become squeaky clean and 'slippery' which means that the hair dye won't stick to your hair as well as on dirty hair. However, be sure that you don't have any hair products in your hair, such as serum, leave-in conditioner, hair spray etc. If you do, just wash your hair and wait a few days before dyeing. But, if you really can't wait to dye your hair, just brush your hair thoroughly to remove any excess hair product.  

When I was all set, I started applying the hair dye at the back of my head and worked my way up as the instructions suggested. After covering my roots I started applying it to the rest of my hair and then combed it through carefully. I let it sit for a little more than 30 minutes. I then rinsed it thoroughly with lukewarm water and applied the conditioner which I let sit for about 5 minutes before I rinsed everything out. Here is the result!

     

Here's the video of me dyeing my hair with this hair dye, where you can see the before and after more clearly.



Unfortunately, yet again it didn't dye the ends of my hair into a purple color, but rather a (really pretty) grey color. I guess the ends of my hair are just totally messed up, haha. However, the result is really gorgeous! I basically now have deep purple roots and grey ends. The result it gave me is actually quite similar to the eZn Shaking Pudding Hair Color in Smoky Lavender, except that this dye gives a more strong and deep purple color. I will definitely keep using this color. The only reason I choose this one over the Pudding Hair Dye is that it gives a stronger color which means that it'll probably last a bit longer.

In any case, I actually really like the ombre look I ended up with, but I might try to touch up my ends with my Directions Hair dye in Violet which usually only sticks to my bleached hair and not my roots. We will see! In any case I will make an update about the result on here.

Thank you so much for reading. Let me know what you think! Bye for now, dreamers~



Caramel Macchiato ♡ Eye Makeup

Sunday, May 21, 2017

Hello, dreamers! I'm back with yet another video on my Youtube Channel! Crazy, right? I can't believe that I've actually been uploading videos kind of regularly. My goal is to upload 1-2 videos every single week! Let's see if I can keep it up, hah. Check out the video below and let me know what you think! (I kind of messed up the eyeliner at the end, whoops! Everyone makes mistakes~)


Anyway, I'm sorry for not posting any actual blog posts here on my blog. I'm actually working on a bunch of blog posts, but as you can see, I've been focusing on my Youtube Channel these days. I hope you understand! I'm still kind of new to making videos, so it really takes up a lot of my time and energy. In any case, I'll try to start managing both my blog and my Youtube Channel at the same time, as soon possible!

Thank you so much for reading/watching. Bye for now, dreamers ♡
