Week 5: E for Elegance, Entertainment & Eating

Been busy this week. We started Elegant makeup which meant we were working with bold lipstick colours. Now some might say "holy moly, you spent a week learning to put lipstick on?!" to which I say: don't diss me until you try it. Putting on your own lipstick is incomparable to applying it to someone else. Achieving symmetry is incredibly difficult while still trying to keep the lines clean & crisp. Thank goodness I passed the test or else I would have gone insane repeating the look. So here's a picture after I was made-up.

We also started hand makeup! I enjoyed that! We has to cleanse, massage and moisturize our partners hands, push the cuticles back and file their nails. For polish we were to put a base coat on then at least two coats of colour followed by a top coat. My nails were painted a bright green and, when I got home I painted some nail art on so they look pretty cool. Again, the whole process is easier said then done. In a few weeks we will be tested on it.

On Friday my friend and I decided to have Ice cream Friday. This means every Friday we go to the Korean supermarket and buy an ice cream. Since we can't read Korean we choose the ice cream based on how they look. This is what I chose:

Oh my gosh! it was amazing! Vanilla ice cream balls wrapped in this thin, sweet skin which was a bit like uncooked pastry. So good. I want more!

Yum. Yum. Yum!

Any way, it's Saturday so I treated myself to a coffee this morning at The Little Espresso Room in Parnell. Their coffee and muffin were very good!

Don't they look nice? The coffee was a Flat White and the muffin was apple and cinnamon sprinkled with shaved almonds.

Also for lunch my friend and I went to a Japanese restaurant. I had Sweet & Sour Chicken Donburi. It was so so so gooooood! And so much for $10.00. I'm stuffed right now I don't think I'll have dinner tonight.

Above is the Teriyaki Chicken platter she had and below is what I ate.

We also went to the St. Patricks Day parade down Queen Street. But I'm going to blog about that later because I am so pooped and I took loads of photos which = loads of work to blog about.

Until then...

Your lips look huge! You don't need collagen injections, you just need the person who did your make-up!
