I've been hiding my bangs, I still couldn't get used to them... it's so hard to style it... I realized, this whole fringe style is just not for me.... but I'm not worried coz my hair does grow out hella fast.... =)

anyhoo, have you tried plum colored lipsticks??? do you go out with this color on your lips???


  1. I like the whole look especially the eyes, looks great on you. Plum color is nice but sadly it doesn't suit me...

  2. @ MINAKICHU - thanks hun!! I thought plum was a hard color to wear as well, but u should try it, u never knew it might look good on u...

    @ charlene-ann & sheriseandsineadxox - thanks ladies! =)

  3. So pretty!! The smokey eyes and red lips actually look good together on you. I like it. :))

  4. beautiful work we've been learning about different eye shapes at school and your eyes are the most complicating to me, but you do an outstanding job.... love it

  5. love this! everything is gorgeous. i love the pop of colour on your eyes and the colour of the lips.
