Uni Soon: Make up that’ll last those long days

Been busy these past few days trying to finish up some artworks before uni begins (which will be on Sunday 😦 )

Here are some lil tips to keep your not-too-over-the-top make up, for uni, fresh without worrying about it needing to reapply!

Make-Up

Before apply your foundation, apply a foundation primer. The makeup will last longer with this, and your skin will look evenly colored and smooth. Also, it gives you a matte effect.

Forehead:

So that the makeup on wide areas hold better, make sure you cleansed your skin properly first off. Apply your foundation/powder or whatever; then apply a bit of powder blush onto your temples, so that it’ll give you a nice , natural, look for the entire day.

Eyes

No more Panda Eyes! Apply Eye Gel and an eye shadow base/primer foundation for the mascara, eye shadow, and eye liner, to keep it from smearing. The Eye Gel will stop the eye makeup from “crawling” into your eyes, and the eye shadow base/primer will hold the color of the eye shadow you decide to apply, way better. For bright eyes, apply a bit of light eye shadow on the inner corner of your eyes.

Cheeks

Blush will give you a “Good-Mood-Booster-Freshness”. Apply a cream-blush on the highest of your cheeks and then blend it, I can’t stress this enough, blend it. After that, dust on some of your powder blush ! Don’t overdo!

Lips

To keep your kissable lips-look as long as possible, firstly apply a bit of foundation over your lips, then powder up your lips off slightly, then finally apply your lipstick. Finish off by powdering your lips a bit once more, then applying lip gloss to make them shine!

Chin

Firstly, hide any blemishes with a concealer, then also apply the foundation steps here, but make sure to go down to your neck and then make the make-up fade away, so that it doesn’t give you a foundation “ring”

 

For on the go:

  • If you have a shiny face while on the go, pat it with an “Oil Control Paper” which’ll mattify your complexion!

Be Kiss-proof:

  • With a Make-Up Fixing Spray, your make-up will hold longer and will be wipe-proof as well!

And for those, like myself, who don’t really care that much about their make-up looking perfect – Enjoy university! And wish you a great semester!

Low Fat is yummy!

Low fat fudgey yummy brownies, and low-fat (and no cholesterol) store bought marshmallow fluff!

(I made my brownies thinner, in order to layer them up, so if you plan on adding something between them, you should keep the brownies thin)

One of my (many) pet peeves, is those who say “I can’t lose weight, I’ve tried and I can’t”, then I see them eating chips, burgers, sweets upon sweets – NON STOP. Well, GEE, I wonder why you possibly can’t be losing weight?!?! It pisses me off. I mean, if you don’t want to lose weight, that’s not a problem, but complaining about it and not working for it?? Just shut your idiotic mouth up with another greasy burger.

I mean, I’d understand if someone has a medical problem and therefore is struggling to lose weight, but the people I know so far have no damn medical issue.

I had this one friend, she’s.. horrible. Anyway, before I start listing all the things she’s done and caused, I’ll just stick to the thing that I want to tell you about her that’s relevant to this.

When I started to work on myself to lose weight, she said that she wants to lose weight. Now that’s all fine and dandy. Except, here I am, actually sticking to my calorie count, and eating proper food – and there she is, whining, and bitching about her weight, and then goes and asks me for money to buy Cheetos.. 3 bags to eat at once (more junk would follow as usual – Oh, and she owes me so much money, one of many reasons why I cut her out of my life) Anyway, one day she comes saying that she is going to start going to a gym. That’s great, right? Wait for it.

So let’s flash forward to a typical day for her, eating non-stop for entire day, only junk food, goes to gym for 2 hour (I highly doubt she even pushed herself at the gym) and then continues with her junk food. She keeps saying she lost weight, but then complains about the fact that she gained weight again while working out…

Other 2 pet peeves of mine – Stupidity and lack of common sense.

Look, I love food, I seriously love food, I used to eat so much junk food back in the day, but then I decided to lose weight and I stuck to it. If I can do it, anyone could do it.

And the thing is, this girl, she isn’t in a well financial state (again, she owes me SO much, like no kidding, around maybe over 400 kd) and here she is wasting money for the gym, money she could’ve used to pay me back for everything. Ah well, in the end it doesn’t matter as long as she’s out of my life xD

Another thing, I get it’s a bit more difficult for us girls to lose weight in Kuwait, since there’s literally restaurants, diners, burger joints and bakeries around every corner (I mean it, literally around every corner, I’m not exaggerating) and there’s barely anything to do here except eat and shop and go to the movies where we.. eat. Not to mention, Kuwait’s culture is food oriented as well, with all the family gatherings and what not, there’s always food – fat loaded food and desserts, and huge amounts of it at that – but if you really put your mind to it, you will find that it’s not that hard to do, you don’t even need to gym. You can read my post on the way I shed my weight, here.

It’s possibly ok! You can enjoy yummy food, in lesser calories and amounts! Eventually, you’ll even lose the need to want something like salt and vinegar chips and Cheetos (I used to eat salt and vinegar food like it was water, and drink cola like it was air, now though I have to urge to want it).

Guys, and especially girls, stop fucking whining, if there’s nothing medically wrong with you then shut the fuck up and go lose the weight that you oh-so hate. I’m allergic to sweat and break out terribly when I sweat alot, but did that stop me?? No. It was worth it, now with less weight, I sweat less. Just shut the fuck up with your pathetic excuses – Anything is possible.

Odd one out

You know, usually in my graphic design classes, pretty much all the students I have in my class all seem to find some cheesy ‘artistic’ thing to say. For example, they see like geometric shapes with some warm colors on a cool background, and they somehow manage to come up with like, “I feel that it’s so relaxing, and inviting, I think of clouds falling into a sunset” bla bla bla, and the thing is, the professors eat it up, and the issue here is we end up all having to say something about some graphic design work, and all I can come up with is, “I see shapes”.

I don’t know how they find something so artistic and find such feeling in what I feel is just a straightforward piece of graphic work. I would understand if it was something like:

Trust me, I’d have lots of things to say about such strong art works. Or art works in general.

But I don’t know how they find something to say about something like this:

I don’t know if they are just overdoing it and trying to seem artistic and smart, or if I’m just the odd one out in the graphic design classes?

I feel more comfortable in art classes, and get confused at how the girls in my classes show off with finding something so heartfelt to say about such a rigid straightforward label work.

Is it just the girls here? I don’t know.. I’ve only experienced it in AUK gdes classes, but the girls have less to say in regular art classes, which confuzzles me.

It’s frustrating trying to find something meaningful to say for such works, and I always feel silly for … well, being honest and straightforward in what I see and get from the work.

Hit & Run

So my friend got into a car accident yesterday, the driver of the car that hit her (a girl driver) simply drove off without even a scratch without stopping, whereas my friend’s car got fucked…
Girl, whoever you are, I hope you get into a car accident, get hurt, car gets fucked, and that the other driver manages to drive off unscathed and problem-free.

On that note, I’ve noticed that female drivers here won’t even have the decency to look at you when they make small and/or big fuck-ups while driving…. Seriously??? Wtf is up with that??? If you can’t drive properly or have a proper driving etiquette then stay off the fucking roads – same goes for guys, of course, but ironically I feel that the women drivers here are worse than anything else. Learn to drive and pass without a fucking wasta. I swear, if they had to get their license in like Germany, they’d never, ever, ever pass! No way in heaven or hell would they pass there.

Have some respect on the roads and act like a fucking woman/man and own up to your wrong-doings, don’t act like a fucking little baby and run away – I pray Karma gets you fast, you cowards.

Update: So was just driving, and this kid – seriously, he was a kid, almost crashes into me, and then continues on driving and laughing and zig zaging left and right, without signaling of course. Ah, gotta love this country that gives licenses out for free. And/or parents who aren’t responsible enough to know whether their kids are driving without licenses or in a risky manner.

Retards, retards everywhere.

Guys who just look better older D:
