BNT Girls Collaboration: SNSD Mr Mr Makeup (Seohyun)

Before my batch of BNT Girls (possibly) disbands, we thought we’d cook up a makeup collaboration featuring looks from SNSD/Girls Generation’s new video for the song, Mr Mr! You can watch the video here: We each picked a girl who wore a makeup look we wanted to recreate! I’m not sure what time the other girls are planning to post their looks, so I’ll just add the links as they come. 🙂 Anyway, I did this look back when I still had long hair! I was picking between Yuri and Seohyun, but Seohyun had the look I wanted to recreate the most: (It took me a while to remember their names, haha. I’m not a big fan of K-Pop, but that’s only because I don’t know where to start. But that’s another story.) I never would have thought to pair purple eye makeup with a red lip; that just seems to cross over to super bold territory for me. Still, I persevered.

Unboxing Preview: My first bntgirls Mission

I keep posting things that I don’t mean to post until later, but what can you do? Anyway… Hello, everyone! About two weeks ago, I received word that I was accepted into the second round of bntgirls, which is bntnews’ global beauty editors group! bntnews is a huge K-pop news portal based in the UK, with editors and writers spanning several countries, and now, including the Philippines. 🙂 Each month, we get missions and I’m so excited to get them done! The first bntgirls mission is to review the contents of this first beautybox. I was going to go right into it and not even do an unboxing, but then I changed my mind. Here’s a preview of some of the reviews to look forward to this month—and then some! 🙂 I first heard about the beautybox from Tellie of Beauty by Tellie. I posted an Instagram photo (follow me on @presidents) of me wearing the Stylenanda 3CE Lip Lacquer and it held up pretty well today. I was out from 11am to 10pm. I’m …

Mail Time: Too Cool for School Haul

Hello! Here’s another haul. I bought these items about three weeks ago and now they have come into my possession. Off the bat, I am very pleased with my purchases. I have some (color!) items that I have my eye on (again), but I’m holding off purchases right now. Anyway, I bought these products from Korea Depart, and they are a pleasure to do business with! As you may have read in my last post, I found out about Too Cool For School from Wiji of Dandelion Whiskers. I searched high and low for a retailer of this product and found Korea Depart! They carry a lot of Korean brands, too, and have reasonable shipping fees so go take a look. What I got for myself, L-R: Angel Hand Cream in Grapefruit, Dinoplatz Pearl Bay Invasion in Mother of Pearl (this is a luminizer), a Marshmallow Puff (a pretty good Beauty Blender dupe!), and Break Time Lip Tint Balm in Rose Dream. I especially like the Dinoplatz line because of the design and illustrations. Agh, …
