Weekend Recap...

Monday, September 21, 2009

So last weekend I had a chance to help a friend with her fashion show at Brooklyn Fashion Festival. The designer Jade Chiu is a talented accessory designer and her pieces are inspired by Chinese 12 animal signs with western funkiness.

I was one of the makeup artist(there are 2 of us) and we came up with the look of dark brown/black smokey eyes for the dramatic effect. We had to do the makeup at the dim light environment and since we arrived late we had to rush back to back to finish all the models. It was a bit intense but I had great time doing it :) Here are a few dolls I'd worked on...

It was so rush I didn't get a chance to take close pictures for each model... next time I will have to snap some good shots no matter what ;)


Last weekend was all about Brooklyn. The next day, Me, hubby and Jacob went to Dim Sun for lunch in a famous restaurant in Brooklyn Chinatown (I was busy eating and forgot to take pics, haha...) After lunch we walked around the area and I found this tiny beauty shop inside of a small shopping center, here is what I found...

My Beauty Diary Black Pearl Mask
Got it for $15. I've heard good things about it, will let y'all know how I like it ;)


And a completely random pic. I took it at a small aquarium in Brooklyn that we walked by... the big fish just won't let go of the small one, he was swimming everywhere like this like forever... poor little fish :(


Have a great week everyone!

That is so cool that you got to do makeup for your friend's fashion show! Love how you did the smokey eyes.

Can't wait to hear what you think about the MBD mask.

Thanks for sharing your pics, it must be so fun and rewarding to help a friend with her fashion show.

I've tried a few MBD masks and the Sake/apple is my favorite, hope the black pearl works for you.

and I've just tried the black pearl mask, and I must say, it's pretty good. But to be honest, I can't really compare, because it was my first face mask anyway... :S
