This happy life will be ended soon, and a lot of struggles in life are welcoming us to come to them soon. However I have to face it. No matter how difficult it is, the hurdle in front of us must be passed with the help of big courage and effort. So, let me say Hello again to my dearest school, the place where I can feel the atmosphere of both heaven and hell. It's not nice to see you again, School!

(behind) THE PHOTOSHOOT

BONJOUR! Comment allez-vous les gars?

Hello there! Did you guys remember what I said about "cuddling with some girl's stuffs" ?? This is the prove of my very first post. I really am do the things that I've said before. I am starting to learn about this kind of things, so called cosmetics. The word 'cosmetic' is actually really new for me. Eventhough I am a 18-years-old-girl, to be very honest, I never have any good relationship with any kind of cosmetic. Like I said before, I am a very simple girl. I only need baby powder to go out with my fellas. I never let the things like foundation, concealer, lipcolor, blush on, and their other friends to touch my face skin. haha. That's why I become so strange with cosmetics. We can say that I am a new born baby in this kind of cosmetic world. That's why I really am need to learn, A LOT.

So, some weeks ago I had a photo session. It's not because I am a model, lol sounds impossible to be a model. This  photo session things is for the sake of the annual year-book. Along the photo session, not only learn how to make a good pose in front of the camera, but also learn about how to apply makeup. Firstly, I've been introduced to the various kinds of makeup tools. At that time, there was a box, with leopard-print on it. I am so curious with the things inside it. When I open it, booomm!! I found this fabulous thing. Take a look at the photo below.

Mascara, blush on, lipgloss, lipliner, lipcolor, powder, foundation, eyeliner, eye glitter, false eyelashes, eye glue, bruhes, eyelash curlers, moisturizer, cleansers, that's all the things that I heard from a super quick explanation. There are a lot of them! OMG! I thought there is only one way to apply makeup. But when I've got the detail, There were many ways to apply makeup. For example if we gonna use lipgloss, lipcolor, or lipliner, there are different ways depend on the time we are applying it on our lips. It has different treatment in the morning, at the bedtime, or when we have a contact with the sun. lol, kinda complicated, right? haha. For the eyes, there's different treatment for every kind of eyes. The treatment for wide eyes will be different with the treatment for the glasses wearers and the Asian eyes. Skin has some different treatments too. As we know, there are many kind of skin, such as dry skin, oily skin, normal skin, sensitive skin, and so on. Knowing the kind of our skin will make us easier to decide what kind of foundation or powder that will fit on our sk in. Fuhhh! There are too-much-ways to appy makeup. I got some makeup tips. Here are the tips:


1Use a plastic spoon to easily apply mascara on your bottom lashes without getting any on the skin under your eyes. 2In order to apply blush where it will be most flattering on you, first determine your face shape. Blush not only adds color, but also contours and defines your cheek bones. The way you apply your blush can accentuate your best features and also soften those that are perhaps too prominent. 3Most of us tend to just sweep a layer of concealer to the entire under eye area, but to really conceal bags, it’s best to highlight the crease and then apply a darker shade to the actual puffy area. 4Use a baby toothbrush to exfoliate your lips. To really get the job done, you can make a homemade lip exfoliate with sugar and coconut oil, or easier but not as effective, cover your lips in lip balm or petroleum jelly before scrubbing. 5As important as your color choices are, the placement of your shadows and liners is just as critical; you can create just about any illusion that you want. With careful placement, you can make your eyes appear wider, closer set, more prominent, deeper set, etc. Determine what shape of eyes you have, and then accentuate them accordingly. 6After your lipstick is applied, hold a tissue over your lips and apply powder over the tissue. This creates a matte look that lasts much longer. 7False eye lashes can bring your look from drab to fab in just a few patient minutes, and is definitely worth the time for special occasions. The key is knowing how to apply them from the get-go, otherwise your frustration will prevail. (cr:listotic)

The photo below is the makeup that we use in our photo session. How was it? Ofc it's not me who made this masterpiece hahaha. Thanks for the one who help us in applying makeup.


Thats's all the story about behind the photoshoot with all the cosmetics stuffs in it. At least, I've learnt how to apply makeup. Thanks for those who has given me all the explanation. Bunch of thanks! :)

MERRY (very late) CHRISTMAS and HAPPY (late) NEW YEAR!

Bonjour people! So sorry for a very late post. I wrote this post in the middle of my almost-ended-holiday, I hate that fact to be very honest! So, here I am, just wanna say:

M E R R Y (v e r y  l a t e)  C H R I S T M A S
Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful. - Norman Vincent Peale 

Did you get something from Santa? Perhaps a gift? Have you been good? Or maybe bad? Which one that you've done all along this year? As we know, Santa will only gives the gift to the one who have been good to everyone. Christmas is time to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, forgive the guilty, welcome the unwanted, care for the ill, love your enemies, and do unto others as you would have done unto you. Becoming good to someone else is a very amusing thing to do, and prepare yourself to receive bunch of gifts from Santa if you already do every single goodness to others. Merry Christmas! Have a good time :)

and the next one, I'd like to say:
H A P P Y  (l a t e)  N E W   Y E A R

 “Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right,” - Oprah Winfrey

Keep on going writing the first blank page of a 365-page book until the 365 page of a 365-page book. Write a good one! Full of a joyous and beautiful memories. Happy New Year everyone! :)

When Situation "Force" You to Make a Decision...



"I'm going to do what I want to do. I'm going to be who I really am. And I'm going to figure out what that is."  
Sam (The Perks of Being a Wallflower)

I read some quotes yesterday, some good quotes, and a very good one. I found this Sam's quote from the movie 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower'. Somehow I feel like I really am fit with this quote. The questions such as WHAT WILL YOU DO? and WHAT WILL YOU BE? are the most mainstream questions for a teenager like me. This is what I feel and this is what keep staying on my mind and this is the question that I can't find the answer till now. So I am going to figure out what that is. 

It was Sam, the girl who inspired me. She was the type of girl to be kind to anyone that she met, though wasn't afraid to stand up for herself, her friends, and what she believed in. When I watched the movie, I realized that Sam incredibly free spirited, and has an amazing wild side that shows her inner youthfulness and bliss. Despite many insecurities she had, due to past traumas, Sam had began breaking away from them, and allowed herself to learn and grow into a very wise and independent young woman. Always seen with a smile on her face out in the real world, Sam was willing to try anything new and exciting and was a wonderful example of a troubled teen growing and realizing how much they are worth. Don't you feel things like amazed, definitely in love, and dazzled towards Sam's personality? I do amazed with her. She just like a girl who anyone want to be with. I love the way she let and guide herself to be who she really is. That's what I wanna do to myself. I will let and guide myself to be real me, someone that I wanna be :)

So, here's the situation. I am a senior student in my senior high school. This year is my last chance to study and collect as many knowledge as possible in the place that is called school. It's about three or four months to go to face the exams, both exam from the government and from the 'real wild life'. This situation, perhaps I can say 'force' me to make a decision related to my future. People around me starting to ask Which university you will attend ? What faculty you will take? and so many other questions. Even the girl's conversation in my class suddenly changes its topic to be the things like university, faculty, planing to have a side job, etc. We usually talk about movies, books, the artists that we adore, the handsome creatures, and so on. But then all the topics change into our future plan. When I was a child, I used to think that someday I want to be a doctor. I keep it till I am in the first grade of senior high school. I still believe that to be a doctor is my one and only idea. When one of my teacher asks the students to write about yourself, your idea, and everything about you, I even write this words: 

"I wanna be a doctor. I am not joking or just say it at this time then I'll change my mind not to be a doctor anymore. This is not only a dream of a child who wanna be a doctor, just like what other child said when his/her parent ask her/him 'what is your idea?'. I only need a couple drops of luck in a jug full of effort to be a success person, a doctor. Yes, I wanna be a good doctor."

That's what I wrote in a piece of paper at that time (the words are not exactly the same, I can't clearly remember about it. But I am sure that the contents is 100% the same). A year later, when I am in my second grade, I am started to think about 'being a doctor'. It's not only me who wanna be a doctor. Bunch of my friends also wanna be a doctor. To be a doctor not as easy as flipping your hand. It needs not a short time and a lot of fee too. Since then I keep arguing with my mind and day by day, the idea to be a doctor disappear, it becomes a tiny willingness now. But it doesn't mean that I give up on my dream. I am just looking for my real passion. I am a person whose passion is in art and something related to science especially biology. I love to do art, a lot. I spend my spare time to draw, I always sing in everywhere, and I love to play music instruments. It seems like art is a part of my life. So I told my parent that I wanna be an architect. After dealing and arguing, I decided to choose three faculties. The first is architecture, the second is public health, and the third is nutrition. It's all about passion, and my passion is in that three faculties. Let's see what will I take in the end. The public health is the strongest candidate lols (people told me that public health is a semi-doctor). Let my daddy Jesus guide me to the right choice :)

I've got the answer for 'What will I do?' and 'What will I be?'. I proudly say that,
 I am incredibly free spirited. I'll do what I wanna do and I'll be who I really am
Not what other people want to see
The most important thing that we should remember is everything that we do and what we wanna be, must be in a positive way and can gives a positive influence to other and don't forget to think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best.
