I initially wanted this post up something important but when I realized that it was my 100th post, I wanted it to be a happy one. So I'll have to postpone the announcement I had wanted to make.
Introduced E to Left 4 Dead and by the looks of it, E's loving it! I'm glad, she wasn't very interested when I told her about Quake 4 but this zombie shooting game really got her attention. Been playing it for the past 2 days now and it's really fun playing with your best friend. We take care of each other's asses and we cooperate well even online. I also realized how important teamwork is in the game because as usual, E's little bro, Dani and Alex are both Rambo-wannabes. Meaning, they walk too fast and forget to wait for people behind. Especially poor little me. I'm usually the last cause I need to take care of their backs so I'm usually left behind, only E comes back for me after seeing me get lost somewhere in the tunnels.
So anyway, had an interview this Saturday and I had a major breakout. My skin was still dehydrated and pimples popped out like literally no tomorrow. I'm suspecting that it's the Clarin's HydroQuench that made me break out but we'll see. So I had to find a way to cover up my pimples and still not look like I painted my face with WeatherShield or Dulux.
E gave some tips and I had to figure out the rest myself. Nerve-wrecking. So many products and just one face. No mistakes allowed.
Thankfully, I seem to have figured out a way to cover uneven, patchy, pore-y, pimpled skin to make it almost flawless. Well, to me anyway. Gonna post this up so that I don't forget this secret recipe. All my 24 years of life, it's only now that my skin has gotten oily, dehydrated and pimple-ly. Usually it's just oily and pimple-ly. XD
But when your skin is dehydrated, the skin becomes tight looking and even line of your face can be seen even clearer. Like d'oh, everyone knows that, so anyway for those out there that might have the same problem as me, here is a little tip, don't take it word for word but experiment on your own just as well.
First, prep your face the night before with hydrating mask, serums and anything hydrating. The following morning, clean your face, apply toner, moisturizer and then what I did was, apply MAC prep and prime (which covered my pores) worked nicely, then on with my MUFE colour corrector in green, wait a while then, pile on the MUFE Camoflauge Cream concealer, apply MAC Mineralized Satinfinish as it gives off a beautiful dewy look and not matte and boring. Anna Sui's face powder on top and slap on my MAC MSF duo in medium/ natural and shimmer's shimmer part as hightlight.
It sounds really simple, but these items are really great because they really cover up everything without making your face look like you got a pancake face. Wish there was a picture but I was in a rush so I didn't take any.
Oh, someone requested for the pictures below. Not such a great job so I might come up with a better one later on.
This is in the mind of a certain someone. The captain (the one wearing a Navy Captain's hat) is working desperately to save his sinking ship while the rest of the crew members sits back doing nothing. Yes, his 'ship' is the pea shaped thingie. The light blue represents the water seeping into his sinking ship.
