Seven days in Japan

My sis took this shot in Universal Studios Japan, righhht after lunch and just before my tragic adrenaline crash. No one is surprised that Jamie got tired after taking a few roller coaster rides, really. The Hollywood Dream did NOT mesh well with my fear of heights, let me tell you that.  I didn't even know screaming would become impossible when I'm falling from a 40m drop.

Also, I made my dad puke again with another space themed ride. (Yay, I should get a trophy for that.) Space? Oh yeah it's gonna be such a chill kiddy ride, no worries bro~ What a bunch of gullible fools we are. But hey, nothing adds a layer of unwanted suspense and fear like being stuck in a ride, blind with worry for someone else's well-being. Especially that part where you just enter the ride and you get a glimpse of what's to come and you think "AW SHIT".

 Long story short, I really enjoyed myself there. Could you tell?  But fuck, no more high drops. My palms are getting clammy just thinking about it. Ewwwwww. Ew ew ew.

ELF BLUSH BRUSH | THEBALM MARY-LOU MANIZER | NYX TAUPE BLUSH | EXCEL EYEBROW PENCIL 
REVLON COLORBURST BALM STAIN IN HONEY | RIMMEL SCANDELEYES WATERPROOF KOHL KAJAL IN NUDE

I love make-up. I just can't help being drawn to all the pretty colours that I can use to reinvent myself according to my daily mood ( that and also making my self-esteem a lot better, duh.) But amid all the blushers and lipsticks, these are the staples I use almost every time I slap some make-up on. So instead of waxing lyrical about all this shizz ( believe me, I can go on for ages) , I shall try to keep it short and simple.

The Elf blush brush is cheap as chips, soft, and is my go-to brush for powder and contouring. The Balm Mary-lou manizer can make you feel like a glowy goddess (although you gotta be careful with how you put on since it's so intense) and with Nyx taupe? Instant cheekbones that will cut through all the bullshit you might have to go through in your daily life. For de-zombifying, Revlon balm stain in honey is my default MLBB lippy (my lips but better, WAY better) & Rimmel Scandaleyes in nude for brightening my waterline and taking me one step closer to shouju manga eyes territory.

Oh and disclaimer alert: Do keep it in mind that I'm a pale-ass chinese girl with dry skin soooooo what works for me might not work for you. No offense. ;_;
