(Edited) You're Invited to Costume Party, Dresscode? Humiliation a.k.a NORAK

One of my beloved organization is throwing away costume party in order to celebrating the anniversary, and the theme is "Back to Nature". At first i was like, what to wear hadaaaah..... Back to nature means, er.. WEAR NOTHING rite? LOL
Since there would be a lot of performance from every classes, my classes and several classes decided to join up and make a video as a wish and "ice-breaker" during the party. Yesterday, the shooting began. We decided to dress up for the video with 80's. VIVA 80's reminds me of colourful outfit and lots of layering. Remember Docmart, latex legging, Jane Fonda, ah... memories :D
And to make it more "worse" my colleagues told me that it has to be super duper "NORAK".

Sadly i love myself that much not to publish the whole look of me that day, don't have enough nerve to post it here *nail biting*. So i'm just gonna post the FOTD.

Still budgeted, still doing it fast and really long lasting :)

Really Beauty on Budget

For the money savers out there.

I got the question a lot, how to do make up with less budget. And i really need to practice again after 3 month didn't do any make up at all on me either on someone else. I decided to do this post, anyway my friends already remind me about my absence on blogging so here you go...

The tips that i got from my own experience that i hope can help you guys figure it out.
  1. Know your skin type and choose the right skin care, make up is easier to applied on healthy skin
  2. Choose carefully for the foundation and match the shade with your skin tone
  3. Choose the decorative products on neutral color, and add some bright color to your collection. ex : you can get a nice neutral brown eyeshadow quad and can get some pink, blue or black eyeshadow to add in your collection. You can experiment on the color, but neutral always is the best choice
  4. Get yourself a good primer for face and primer for eyes.
  5. And remember less is more, you don't have to put on everything on your face while doing make up, if you go bold on eyes make sure you make everything else is light. 
I got 2 models, meet Melinda and Melan. Melinda asked for make up that Korean and Japanese looks like and Melan asked for more lady rocker look but not too gothic. Both asked for easy 15 minutes make up (of course budgeted). 

Sari ayu 25th year Eyeshadow Palette
Marcks loose powder in creme
Revlon shine control
Inez liquid foundies
Pixy liquid eyeliner (black)
Red A lipstick (nude)
Evanysenses waterproof mascara
ELF eyelash curler
Some random brushes (Majelier and Masami Shouko)

Didn't read any blush on and eyebrow pencil? Yes, i didn't use any. I used the lipstick and applied it like i applied cream blush, with finger and blend it. For the eye brow i use dark chocolate eye shadow and brush to applied them.



Only false lashes that missing in both of this look i think. If use false lashes the eyes will pop out.

Sweet Lips and Brushes (Haul)

I'm crazy about lips, as you guys all know that i'm a big fan of lip conditioner, lip balm whatsoever more than lipstick. I got mysefl 4 brand new of lip balm lately.

Top : Labello Pearly Shine ; Carmex Lip Balm
Bottom : Labello Light Kiss

And the other one that forgot to take the picture is Banana Boat with Spf Lip Balm ( This one is my favourite, and already used, gonna do the review soon)

Last but not least, i got myself Essence of Beauty travel set brushes.

Left : Face edition
Right : Eyes edition

I forgot how much they cost me, sorry but i got the balm around somewhere in Stephenplatz and the brushes is from my fellow FD member.

Personal Life Post

I've been away for like 3 month :(

I missed blogging, but been away for so long until i don't know what to post anymore. I've been behind from everybody.

Dear ladies, do you know and aware that nowadays there's a lot of disease that attack most of woman age around their 20-30 something? I didn't!!! Until my love's sister was very sick and got to be hospitalized for like 3 month. I didn't know it was that serious because i was still on my Euro trip last July, and we didn't stay in touch as much as we want to because of the lack of source i had there and my love's didn't want to bother me while i was concentrating on my competition back then.

Apparently, while i was gone, on early July she was hospitalized for few week because she had prolonged fever (up to 40-42 degrees). The doctor made lots and lots of test, and lots of diagnose also. She was claimed of Leukimia, and TB, and even some doctor said could be HIV. I was like, WHAT?

She went to 2 different hospital in Indonesia, and her husband decided to take her to Malacca for better treatment, but that didn't work out also. And one of the doctor reccommended a hospital in Jakarta (my friends suggest i better not say the name, afraid of Prita's case :D ) she was there for one whole month, and the doctor keep running test without a result and can you guys believe, they once misplace her medicine with other patient's medicine, i can sue them for that actually! There was a result - i really wanna kick the doctors there-, she was diagnose to had TB disease which make her had to drink the medicine for one year. As we all probably guess, she was getting worse than ever, she had fever everyday, until her skin is chappy all around her body, and her hair was totally red and grey because of the fever she had. To make it worse, she got a swollen heart and liver because of the medicine she took.

My love and i decided to discuss with the whole family and took her to Penang Island in Malaysia for many people has been well after they went there. And my father did has his treatment and several surgery there. I was running on and off from Jakarta, to Medan, to Penang accompany her and my love during this 3 months. I barely have no time to finish my thesis, but that the sacrifice i'm willing to make.

Miracle happened, after we went to Penang, in just 3 days she was able to walk and take a bath on her own. Her fever lowly gone and the doctor did run some test, apparently she got auto immune disease, and on her case it was nearly LUPUS.

I apologized for many bad situation that may caused for i been away, such as some fellow FD friend, i think i still owe them some money because i've been away for so long and my package must be arrived long time ago. And to my dearest friends that been so worried about me and my love's family.

Long story short, she has to check up in few month to make sure her immune system is stronger. And now she is fine and happy with her 3 kids, but can't be in a stressful condition and has to do some diets.

There's no beauty without health, so stay healthy my fantabulous ladies.
