Flower fantasy makeup & IMP Box Photography

Hey guys! Cheers for uploading a bit of what i’ve been up to recently! I got to work on hair and makeup with my awesome buddy Jez @ IMP BOX Photography and one of my besties- Chiizu 🙂 

The look was suggested by Jez after reviewing some of Yoshitaka Amano’s artwork. One of my favs!!! His art style had heavily influenced my style of art back in the day when I was drawing~ There’s a film he drew called the Angel’s Egg. A beautiful and really enchanting piece of art.The photo below is what we used as a base image to work off the shoot from. (Not from Angel’s Egg)

Image

Below is one of the many fantastic photos by Jez:

And following is one of my shots before the shoot.

Had a lot of fun doing the look. Its quite simple and oriental. Hope you enjoyed the little snippits!~

Take care!!

Style blog/ keeping you updated!- totally random blog post

I sincerely apologize for having not uploaded for the past couple of days. I actually wanted to post up quite a few looks and things but have been held back from doing so because I can’t post it until the after the photographer’s post it~ But stay tuned for exciting photographs!

So what i’ve been doing lately… makeup looks on other people…cleaning and making room for my studio in the making, meeting up with friends and work and editing photos for people hahaha. 

The other day I bought some socks from topshop… While wondering what I could wear with it, i dug through my wardrobe and found an old fluffy skirt thing. It’s not really my style but the look turned out kinda cute. Really Japanese school girl style…. kinda…let me know what you think?

Shortly after I went to spice up the look with some glasses and looking totally style class asian…

Finally, I bought myself the most awesome snow lion shirt from Dangerfield by Pulp Kitchen. ❤ I love it so much! I apologize for the awkward posing… I really do have an awkward stance… hahahah

Let me know what you think about the shirt and how you would wear it? I’ve worn it with some blue smoke print leggings also by Pulp Kitchen and heels but if you’ve got any other creative ideas let me know! xx

The Modern Day Holocaust: Human Trafficking

It’s not my first time posting about human trafficking. And it definitely won’t be the last. Human trafficking is the modern day Holocaust. The modern day form of slavery. The us who are reading this here would most  likely already realise that it’s horrific- though perhaps not horrific enough to make us realise that we take everything we have at arms reach for granted. We might even have slight thoughts that run along the lines of “well some people choose to be this way” without considering the reality of how they are trapped to choose to live like so.

Just the other day, a friend and I went to view the film, “Trade of Innocents”, a thriller independent film aimed to raise awareness on the issue of human trafficking. I won’t go into too much detail because it is not my primary focus of the day, but it is definitely worth checking out. There is however a line that caught the majority of the viewer’s attention. That is “Changing the fear equation.” It went something along the lines of this: The people who should fear is not the victims, but the pimps and the sellers- these criminals. They’re the ones who should fear because people are watching. The only thing that is not stopping them is because there is fear in the victims, and there is fear in the passerby-s. 

If you haven’t heard of what human trafficking is, human trafficking is the fastest growing multi billion dollar criminal act on the face of this planet. It umbrellas an entire network of criminal acts based upon the demand for money and sex and other sexual pleasures. Pornography and a string of other things that have these sexual connotations even non-legit dvds come from this network. It may shock to you and maybe some of your friends that perhaps even you have somewhat contributed to growth to this criminal act.

The following explanation of human trafficking is extracted from the Trade of Innocents: 10 Things You Should Know Pamphlet:

Current U.S. Anti-Human Trafficking Law, the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (“TVPA”) defines “Severe forms of trafficking in persons”involves (A) sex trafficking in which a commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to per- form such act has not attained 18 years of age; or (B) the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of force, fraud, or coer- cion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery. See Trafficking Victims Protection Act, 22 U.S.C. 7102(8)

 

What’s so scary about it is that it is not only women as victims, a percentage of men and a huge percentage of children also make up this equation. Here are some astonishing facts:

  • 2 Children are sold into sex slavery every minute.
  • Average age of entry into this industry is around 11-14 years.
  • In the next 48 hours, 1 in 3 children will be lured into being in the sex industry
  • “Every 30 seconds someone is forced into modern-day slavery.” -A21 campaign

For more info you can view my previous blog here: https://thephotojaneic-diary.com/2013/03/09/human-traffickingsex-slavery-whats-with-that-girl/

In this blogpost I would also like to give a shoutout to the A21 campaign. They are an organisation that provides shelters and much work including prevention and providing presecutors in order to rescue girls from the pimps and their hidden locations. To them as well as every other organisation that is in this field, I give them my full support for their hard work. The harsh reality is that 99% of victims are not rescued. Regardless, that does not mean we should give up on increasing the 1% that are rescued and increasing that. The fear equation needs to be changed. “No-one can do everything, But everyone can do something.” I’m not encouraging hate on pimps and criminals because these people are also in need of a change in heart. Let’s face it, no-one is perfect and sometimes even for us we do some ridiculous things that hurt other people. No-one is better than anyone but we can all make the world a better place to live in if we truly started caring for one another.

No matter who you are, or what you are capable of, what little thing you can give up in your time can start a revolution. Whether you are a Christian or not these are things you CAN do:

  • Pray for victims- for strength, salvation, for protection and freedom and justice, for hope and healing.
  • Pray for Traffickers- for conviction, repentance, salvation, for networks to dismantle, for oppressors to be arrested and prosecuted.
  • Pray for Governments- for corruption to cease, or implementation of just legislation, for discernment in forming allies.

 

  • Write letters and write for victims rights.
  • Get social
  • Donate (if you can afford to)
  • Volunteer to help
  • Send gifts and encouragement
  • Educate yourself in the matter
  • Make videos or blog
  • Share with your friends the issue
  • Don’t take your life for granted because you have so much freedom. Make the most of what you have and give to others. There is nothing better than the gift of giving without expecting anything in return. ❤

 

Here’s the link to learn more about the A21 campaign:

and here’s that to the film:

That’s it for today and I pray that you’ll all think twice about every decision you make and be thankful for what you have at arms reach ❤ Take care.

Chanel 2013 Summer Haute Couture Inspired Makeup! [Photo Heavy]

Finally, a change of face! A friend of mine suggested me to do a look similar to that of the Chanel’s latest summer haute couture. Challenge accepted. Although I think I should’ve spent more time to model this look to be more finite but I leapt straight to doing the look when I was over at a close friend’s house. It’s been one of the more challenging looks that I’ve done but I had a lot of fun and quite a headache!!! Here’s what I came up with ^^:

Image

What I used:

Image

 

Image

 Face: Lioele Secret HD Powder, Lace, Felt (create a natural organic design to go on the undereye area!), Etude House Shading Corset in #5, MAC blusher in Supernova, Smashbox photo finish primer, Tony Moly Shimmer cube in brown, Gorgeous base perfect liquid foundation in 1Y-BP, You also need your fav pair of lashes~

 Image

Eye shadows: Gorgeous essential shades palette, Jill Stuart palette in 09 Mandarin citrine.

Image

Other: TooFaced shadow insurance, Lancome mascara in Hypnose, HUB Makeup mascara in Superlash black, DUO eyelash adhesive, Stila waterproof eyeliner in Stingray, MAC lash curler.

STEPS!!! 

Image

 1. Start off with a clean face. Apply your face primer and conceal any blemishes with a concealer brush.

2. Using a foundation brush, apply a matte foundation to the skin. We’re not going for a dewy look today because the look is very organic with a touch of dark and venetian element. [You may also decide to only apply the foundation on the eye area first and then apply foundation to the rest of the face after applying the eye makeup because it may get messy if you’re not used to the product you’re using ^~^]

3. Apply the eye primer all over the lids and the undereye area to secure the black shadows later.

 Image

4. [Now i’ve actually finished one side of the eyes before doing the other so you can see how I get the final result.] Using a cream liner, fill out the entire lid as shown.

5. Use a matte black, pat it over the cream base and repeat using a shimmery black. Blend out any harsh edges with a precision blending brush so it doesn’t get too messy.

6. Take the cream liner again and line your eyes. Bring the liner down to your bottom lashline thickly like so. Don’t worry if it’s messy, we’re going to blend it out right after!

 Image

 

7. So take a short flat shading brush and run the matte black shadow over the cream bottom line you just made and blend it out with the top shadow.

8. Next, use a clean bullet brush and apply it to the inner corner of your eyes.

9. Use the precision shadow again, with the TINIEST amount of shimmery black, blend out the white slightly.

 Image

 

10. Using a medium sized shader, apply a shimmery dark brown shadow to the eye sockets so that it softens the black.

11. Now for the fun/ trickier part. Take the lace design that you had prepared. Place the lace on the outer areas of the eye and take the matte shadow and apply it carefully over the lace to create the delicate design. Continue this step until you are satisfied with the amount of lace pattern on the face.

 Image

 

12. Afterwards, take the lovely design cutout that was prepared earlier and apply lashglue and paste it over the lace design. Make sure the lace design still peeps through!

 Image

 

13. Slim and bring out the cheek bones by contouring the hollows of your cheeks and jawline~

14. Apply a dusty rose blush.

15. Highlight the high points of your face. Nose, cheeks, chin, forehead.

16. Contour the nose!

Image

 17. Fill in the brows. Make sure they’re thick and defined.

18. Apply the falsies and a matte lip ❤

Here’s the final look:

Hope you guys enjoyed the look! A massive big shout out and thanks to my friend Chiizu for letting me photograph experiment on her face! xx

Dramatic liner makeup tutorial! <3 [Photo Heavy]

Hello hello!!! How are we all?! I put on my purple contacts today and I was a bit frustrated as to what makeup and what interesting look I can wear with it since purple doesn’t go with every colour… Something like that. This look turned out okay and it was a bit impromptu so I hope you guys will still enjoy and like it ^~^!

Let’s Go!

Brushes used:

Image

 

Image

Face Products: Tony Moly Shimmer Cubes in Brown and Pink Holic, Holika Holika Aqua Jelly BB cream, Palgantong Makeup powder in original beige, Mac blush in supernova, Etude House Shading Corset in #5, Maybelline lipstick in 303, TooFaced shadow insurance, Clio diamond rose HD base.

 Image

EyeShadows: Gorgeous Essential Shades Palette, Kate palette in PU-1, Maybelline hyper diamonds palette in BU-1.

Image

 

Other products: Mac lash curler, Lancome mascara in Hypnose, Majolica Majorca jewelling pencil in WT909, Dollywink liquid liner, Stila eyeliner in Stingray, <oops put the shadow insurance there again haha>, DUO eyelash adhesive.

STEPS!!!

Image

 

1. Apply base, BB cream and powder. You can add concealer to conceal any blemishes if need be 🙂

2. Apply the eye primer all over the lid and around the eyes as demonstrated by the guide lines.

3. Pick up the light purple with a flat shading brush.

 Image

 

4. Pop the light purple all over the lid.

5. Take the darker purple and pat this into the smaller area as shown in the guides.

5. Then get some dark purple with a fluffy blendy brush.

 Image

 

6. Pat this into your outer V and slowly blend outwards as shown above.

7. Use as smaller rounded tip shading brush and pick up the blue-ish colour.

8. Sweep it across the undereye.

9. Using the same brush, pick up the darker blue.

 Image

 10. Blend the colour into the outer 1/3 of the bottom lashline and bring the colour up to the upper outer 1/3 of the eye.

11. Pick up some more of the light purple and use it as a highlighter to your browbone 😀

 Image

 12. Use a bullet head brush and pick up the shimmery white to highlight the inner corners of your eyes.

13. Take a pushliner to pick up a matte black to line your upper waterline.

 Image

 

14. Using a creamy eyeliner, line your waterline. Don’t line out!

15. Now take a clean angled liner brush and drag out some of the cream liner to create a guide for your massive wing.

 Image

 16. Take a white pencil liner and mark out the bottom liner design : )

17. Line your lower waterline while you’ve got the pencil in your hand haha.

18. Finalise the eyeliner with a liquid liner. Line your top eyes and the lower lashline design. The lower part might be a bit tricky so have a Q-tip/ cotton bud ready at hand in case you make a mistake!

 Image

19. Take a brow brush or brow pencil or whatever you’ve got and fill in your brows!

20. Curl your lashes~

 Image

21. Apply mascara.

22. I took the bottom 3 shades of the Brown shimmer cube and used this to contour like shown.

Image 

23. Apply your favourite blush! [Tip: for asians, using a rose coloured blusher looks really good with our skintone. It may look dark at first but it really won’t come out like as so! I used to be scared to use such a deep colour but using even just a small amount really makes a big difference. Much more than a baby pink ~~]

24. I highlighted my T-zone, C-zone and nose with the lightest colours on the Pink Holic shimmer cube.

25. And contoured my nose as shown on the photograph.

 Image

 

26. Put on your fav falsies and wig (if you need to)

27. And finish off with a light pink lipstick! ❤

Image

Finito!

Heres the look in final res. I did play around with the colors slightly on photoshop so the purple.. doesn’t really look purple, but I suppose the look could go with other colours too 😀

 Image

Hope you had fun reading/ doing this look :D!

Yohio’s (Jrock) Makeup Tutorial! [Photo Heavy]

Hi everyone! I’m back with a makeup look similar to that of Yohio’s. He’s a young and beautiful swedish singer who’s music is heavily influenced by Japanese culture. ❤ I’m not even kidding about how beautiful he is! Here’s a pic:

Image

His style might not be very conventional but he’s really quite an interesting person. I really liked his makeup (not the one in the photo but another will be shown in below) so i decided to copy it ish.

Image

Looks fun? Let’s go!!

Products used~

 Image

These are the brushes I’ve used. Now you don’t have to have the exact same ones, just anything similar in size or diameter will do : )! The tutorial below will show you when I use them. xx (I forgot to add the spoolie ><)

Image

Face Products: Gorgeous Base Perfect Liquid Foundation, Hera CC Cream in 01, Gorgeous Camouflage cover cream (concealer), Etude House Tight Shading Corset in #5, Tony Moly Shimmer Lover Cube in Brown and Pink Holic. Ahhh >< I forgot to add in my Smashbox face primer and Escada pink lipstick… sigh forgive me…

 Image

 Eye Shadows: Gorgeous Essential Shades Palette, Maybelline Eye Color Pallet in BU-1, Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadow in Black Magic

Image 

Other Eye Products: Glameyes advant-garde crystal face jewels, Lancome mascara in Hypnose, DUO eyelash adhesive, Brow Specialist eyebrow mascara, Dollywink liquid liner, Shu Uemura eyebrow pencil in Hard 09, Stila smudgestick waterproof eyeliner in Stingray, MAC lash curler. I also forget to put my TooFaced Shadow Insurance eye primer and gluestick in ><

 STEPS!

Image

1. Apply your moisturiser and what not.

2. Use a spoolie and groom your brows in shape, following the directional lines in the pic on the bottom left.

3. Get some glue onto your fingers and secure the brows in place. We want to create those pointy brows xD.

Image

 

4. After the brows dry, apply the concealer over it. Most people who do this look would already have shaved brows. However you can probably tell, I have really thick and dark brows and I don’t want to shave them off so there is still brow visibility. Hence, I fixed the rest up in photoshop. But concealing the brows will already lessen a lot of the dark brow colour.

5. Get your primer and prime your face.

6. I wanted more coverage than usual and a slightly radiant look so I mixed together my CC cream and foundation.

7. And I applied this on my face with a beauty sponge.

Image

8. Spread the foundation following the directional guide in the photo above.

9. Now take the eyeshadow primer and apply this all over the lids, including the undereye area.

10. Take the pearly silverish white cream shadow from the Revlon palette and with your ring finger, apply this all over the first 3/4 of the lid (marked out areas)

Image

11. Now take the Maybelline palette and a flat medium sized shader brush. Dip it into the shimmery white and apply this over the area where you have just applied the cream shadow.

12. Take the bullet head brush and apply the same colour to your tearducts and first half of the bottom lashline.

Image

13. Take the fluffy blending brush and buff the matte black in circular and patting motions into your outer corner until you are satisfied with the amount.

Image

 

14. Then taking a thin blending brush, use window sweeping motions to bring the black into your crease.

15. Using the same brush and matte black, bring the colour down and connect it with the white.

Image

 

16. Now repeat the blending steps with the matte black with the shimmery black.

17. Take the black liner and line your eyes.

Image

 

18. Alright, time to take out a flat shaped liner brush called a pushliner. Dip this into your black eyeshadow and push it into your upper lashline. This will make your lashes look heaps fuller and really makes a difference!!!

19. Now get the liquid liner and sharpen your lines.

Image

 

20. Looking good. Now take the brow pencil and line out how you want the brows.

21. Fill in the brows with brow powder. And if it isn’t dark or strong enough, you can always use brow mascara as I did.

Image

 

Whoot… Look at them weirdo brows!!! LOL. As I said mine are really hard to cover since they’re dark and thick and I don’t want to shave them off…

22. No worries. Go back to the Maybelline palette and grab the white again. Use this to highlight your browbone.

23. Take the bottom 3 colours in the Tony Moly Brown as a contour.

Image

 

24. Contour like so with the guides. Also, contour the jawline if need be.

25. Take the Tony Moly pink holic and use the bottom three as the blush and the top two colours as the highlight.

26. Highlight your T-zone, C-zone, chin and cupid’s bow.

Image

 

27. Take the shading corset and a small fluffy blending brush to use as nose contouring. If you’ve got an asian piggy nose like me, contour according to my guidelines above. What you want to do is not only contour the bridge of your nose but also bring that into the areas right under your brows and bring it half way under your brows. This will make you look like you’ve got slightly deeper set eyes and make your nose appear longer. Finally the sides of your nose. This you will have to experiment because every nose shape is different. However doing this will cast a shadow beside the nose “flaps”(?! LOL) and make it look thinner.

28. Phew.. curl those lashes…curl them >: [

Image

 

29. And coat them in mascara. 

30. Take out some scary(nah they beautiful LOL) lashes and apply them on.

31. And the key to the look! The face jewels! Apply these on with a tweezer.

Image

 

32. Almost done! Apply baby pink lipstick to the centre of your lips.

33. Gloss the lips up with a bit of pink lipgloss.

34. And put on a wig!!!

Thanks for staying with me for so long!

Hope you enjoyed it!
