You and I and almost everyone else know I am not exactly the girlie girl. Given the choice, I would come to work bare-faced. I remember my ex boss commented that he was ‘cheated’ because when I came for the interview, I was all dressed up but after few months in the agency, I came to work with jeans and sneakers minus the efforts.

Unfortunately, my current line of work requires me to meet guests so I am ‘required’ to look presentable. In my dictionary, presentable means as long as the guest do not get a heart attack looking at my face. So I wore minimum make-up. Minimum means face powder, eye brow liner, a little mascara, blush and nude lip gloss. Unfortunately, by the standards of some people, this is not even the minimum.

Once, the Dragoon, stared at me for the longest time, and asked me why didn’t I have some lipstick on. Honestly, I tend to forget about the lips bit especially after a meal and what not. Once I went to a function, full make-up minus the lipstick. Didn’t even realize it if my colleague didn’t offered me her weird pinkish-orange-y lipstick. *hee* I quickly bit my lips hoping it would turn at least a little pinkish because the color she offered does not go well with my lime green baju kurung.

And I am one of those who do not even bother to ‘touch up’.

Yes, I am just that plain lazy.

Of course, there are times when I am just so into hair and make-up. Rare occasions, but it happens. I wasn’t any good, but during those crazy days, experimenting was the key.

Now with the millions of online tutorials and what not, everyone can go crazy with their make-ups, hairstyles. And I am hooked. I’ve watched tutorials after tutorials on hair, make-up, nails. The only problem is, I only have the very basic tools. Like the make-up brushes. I only have two, which I rarely use because it does not apply the make-up well. I just use my fingers to blend the colors. Colors I have plenty but it is basically the same shades. Why I hear you ask? Well, I like the color so I bought it without realizing I have the same exact color at home.

Anyway, I experimented with some of the techniques I learned online.

For the Hollywood Night event where I was the emcee, I tried the Amy Winehouse hair and makeup. The response was superb. Since I am like 10 times bigger, my outfit wasn’t exactly AW, but who cares.

Then I remembered Chegu Carol and her nail Marble experiment. I tried it as well, but it didn’t turn out that well but I still love them! I wore them for a function and people loved it too and that made me so bloody happy.

I have another idea I want to try, but I am just waiting for the right occasion to wear it. I know I could just experiment without having to wait for an occasion, but it’s no fun if people don’t get to see your ‘artwork’.*hee*

Life is shitty these few days. I chose not to sweat about them. I got better things to do. With 1.5 more months to a new year, I rather not waste it by whining about things and people who are beyond my control. Kan?

How do you distract yourself these days?
