Bright Rainbow Makeup

Who loves bright colors?  And rainbows?  And other happy things?  I did a rainbow shironuri look on my Bigo live broadcast recently and decided to adapt it for a daily-wear style makeup!  This type of look would probably go well with fairy-kei, simple black and white Mode looks, or super colorful 6% Doki Doki/galaxxxy styles~

I have many ideas for rainbow makeup, but decided to start with the easiest.  Putting only three colors on each lid makes it easier to see the colors clearly and to blend them better.  I really want to try a rainbow cut crease as well!

Products used are linked in the YouTube descriptions of each video if you are curious!

Red x Gold Smokey Eye

Yesterday I went out with a friend to an art movie screening so I decided to film the makeup I wore!  I've been playing with different eyeshadow patterns and this one has a more open inner eye and eyelid area.

Sailor Moon Pop-up Exhibit and Shop

After our Wa Lolita meetup, Doro, Laina, and I passed by a poster advertising a Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon pop-up exhibit and shop!  Since it was right by the MRT station we needed to go to, we decided to visit!

Smokey Spotlight Eye Makeup Tutorial

I'm back with a quick eye makeup video!  This time it is for a smokey spotlight eye look ^u^
The center color (Arachne by Apocalyptic Cosmetics) did not stick well to the base, so if you have this color (from the Spider Queen Look of the Month subscription) I'd suggest a concealer base added before patting the color on top.

The YouTube descriptions have all the products listed if you want to know more details!


I'd like to try more eyeshadow and makeup looks in general :3  If you have any ideas or suggestions, please let me know! I'm not sure where to look for inspiration since I haven't been using Pinterest any more (should I just get back on there??)

Thank you for reading!

Wa Lolita Meetup

November's meetup theme was Wa Lolita!

Me, Laina, Doro
We went to Steam E;den again (previously) because they had their one-year anniversary special and the food is yummy!
Blouse: Little Dipper
JSK: Meta
Petti: Fantasy Land
Socks: BABY, THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT
Shoes: Vivienne Westwood Algonquins X melissa
 I split meals and desserts with Doro!  It came out to NT$390 for each of us, so it was a pretty good deal to get to try two meals and two desserts (half each)
Mintaiko Wasabi Pasta with Fried Fish

Shrimp Cream Cheese Omelette

Pumpkin Mousse Cake (seasonal), Heart Lock, Chocolate Clock Cake
I wanted the book crepe cake but they forgot my order and then it was sold out T^T  So I had to change to a different order...  I got the seasonal pumpkin dessert, but it really wasn't very good.
Upstairs


On Doro: yukata, SK from Little Dipper
On Laina: Jacket from Qutie Frash, KC and JSK from Alice and the Pirates

On our way to an old Japanese-style building (now restored and running several different businesses inside like an ice shop, a hair salon, a nail salon, and a small eatery) we passed by this totally cute Unicone shop!  They put shaped cookies on ice cream!
Also the decoration outside is just so cute
 I forgot to take photos inside the old building, but it was pretty dark and cramped as this is an original building I believe!

We just had some tea and chats!  The best type of meetup!

Then we were headed to the MRT station when I spotted a Sailor Moon pop-up exhibition/shop poster... but that is for another post ^_~

Cyndaquil//Pokemon Makeup

I am back with another Youtube video!  I did this look for this month's Pokemon GO Community Day ^u^v

ECONECO in Taipei again!

On Nov. 11 Tokyo pastel colors artist ECONECO came to Taipei again!  Of course I went to see her with my good friend Doro ^u^v
Me, ECONECO, Doro
 This time the shop was a part of a larger Japan display event (mostly food) at 新光三越 close to Taipei 101.  I wore my BABY, THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT yellow kumakumyachan JSK and headbow set!  And brought Taiwan Teddy in her Pikachu outfit.
Doro got a tote and ECONECO drew a squirrel (Lulu) on the back!  She asked what Doro wanted Lulu to be eating and I suggested the star-shaped crackers hairpin she was wearing so Lulu is eating a star cracker!
 I bought a couple folding mirrors because they are really handy to carry in a handbag!  There was no Lulu design available, so I bought the hedgehog and Unita the unicorn instead.
The pouch was a gift with purchase that Doro got and gave to me!
 ECONECO gave me a postcard as well because she remembered that I was there at both the other times she came to Taipei *u*

If you like detailed pastel artworks, be sure to follow ECONECO on instagram!  I think there is also an ECONECO cafe now :o  I want to go there in the future!

Thank you for reading, and if you have any favorite artists to share, please share them in the comments below!  My other favorite artist is Yoh of Yoh's Monochrome World.  It's a completely different style, but you should look him up if you like Gothic artwork and very detailed linework!

Personal Update

Recently returned from a three-week vacation to Minnesota.  I may not be posting for a while while I try to get my life back in order ^u^;;

Instead, have a photo of our October Lolita meetup where we played the Alice in Wonderland card game Parade and ate hotpot and pizza!
Laina, DORO, Violet (Taiwan Teddy), and me
I had a lot of fun in MN, saw many friends, did many things, but also realized that I really have no purpose in life and want to sort that out, hopefully.

Thanks to everybody who has been following and reading my blog! Maybe I'll be back

STEAM E;DEN Lolita Meetup

On Sunday I went to a newly-opened steampunk-themed cafe called Steam E;den with Doro for our September Lolita meetup!  It's been a popular location with lolitas, and you can see photos on their facebook page!

The inside is very well-decorated!
