GRWM : to go absolutely nowhere . . .

     Hello Cuties~  I filmed a "Get ready with me" video Monday to go . . . nowhere in particular.  (。≖ˇ∀ˇ≖。)  However that's usually the case with me, isn't it?  It's almost commonplace for me to just doll up for pictures and not even leave my home.  Only these past two years have I been regularly going out.  BUT anyway.  I actually intended to go out, but plans were cancelled.  But hey, at least I got a decent video out of it!
     I haven't got around to editing it just yet but I will very soon.  I want to get into the habit of posting and uploading regularly.  First step being this blogpost, then the video.  Or maybe simultaneously since I tend to take eons to finish writing a blog post lol.  (Does that happen to you guys?)
     In nearly every video I've done, I haven't had a "plan" for my makeup; I just wing it.  No exception here lol I just picked up two palettes I felt like playing in and created this look.
     For this look I reached for palettes that I knew would be easy to just play around in.  Basically I look for a palette that almost lays out complementary shades.  Usually for me, palettes that follow a pink, rose, and purple layout are the easiest to work with.  I used W7 Colour me Nude and Huda Beauty's the New Nude palette.

   I made a point to use my newer cosmetic items again.  This time I got a chance to incorporate the Ashanti lashes from Lena Lashes!  I really do love these falsies.  They're really fluffy and fluttery~   Not only did I use my new makeup, I also coordinated some of my new clothing.  I paired my white Liz Lisa camisole with my pink shorts. (that I still don't know the brand of lol) I'm just going to assume they're a liz lisa replica.

     Also, what do you think of my new hairstyle?  I wanted to have braids for the summer since it's so easy to maintain.  I also have to thank fellow gaijin Ebony because she made the point to show how hairstyles like this can easily fit into kawaii styles.  I'm so happy to see representation like that.  It definitely gave me that self loving boost that I needed!
I think I look like an elvin princess ₍՞◌′ᵕ‵ू◌₎♡
     Apart from the GRWM video, I was also filming a contact lens review for the QuoRe Ice Brown lenses.  I changed my normal set up to be downstairs and took advantage of the window lighting.  While I haven't checked all of the footage, I'm hoping it looks really good.  I got to break out one of my new backgrounds too!  I love the shade of pink and I think it'll go really well with a lot of my future looks.
      This was my first time wearing the lenses, but I think I can safely say that I really like them.  I was hesitant to buy them at first but I really need to switch it up next time.  I'm pretty comfortable with browns, grays, and greens.  Maybe I should try blue?  (`・/д\・)
     I'll share the video on my blog once I've uploaded it.  I wanted to publish this post as motivation to quickly edit the actual video. (^^ ; )  So the pressure is on now!

~ Love you x Amiman ~
