Mio's Make Up Tutorial~

As Mio is an update!  It was a long day today...Mio was dead tired from school x_x  but Mio want to be true to her word...*crawl out of her comfy princess bed*

Mio was in a silly silent protest today to Mikan! Mikan was a meanie! but ish okay...we kiss and make up already...Mio is chillinig in Mikan's room, listening to music and sharing a drink while blogging...

So this is Mio's 1st Make Up Tutorial...hopefully Mio is doing this right...Mio learned how to put makeup on herself through trials and errors >w<    Please correct Mio if she is wrong in some steps...

-Smoky Night Out Look *Inspired by Mikan's subtle earthy tone*  (Mio is a color person XDD)

First, Mio primed her face with a primer then put on Missha B.B.Cream Watery SPF 27++. Mio fell in love with B.B. Cream when she brought it last month after a long resistant of giving it a try. It is very light and blend in well with Mio's color. The coverage is average, so Mio adds a light concealer to needed area and spots for a better coverage. It smells kind of floral, feminie...hard to put a finger on it...but is not too strong that you feel nauseous.

This is the texture- watery like is stated it is. Very easy to spread out.

This is with out flash.

This is with flash.

After having B.B.Cream, Mio sometime just go to class with one-ply of B.B. Cream on...It keeps Mio's skin looking smooth and minized the pores. Mikan ordered Skin79 Gold Caviar B.B.Cream last week...We are waiting for it in the mail :)  

Next, curl your eyelashes before applying any eye makeup. Mio found this easier and this way you won't dirty or smear your makeup. Then, apply your favorite black eyeliner to the as close as you can to the upper top lashes.

Mio uses Estee Lauder's Artist Eye Pencil in 01 Softsmudge Black.

Mio got this cool natural eyeliner "setter"? as a gift when Mio got her eyeshadow primer. The "setter" is a clear liquid that is suppose to set the eyeliner into waterproof. After that Mio apply the eyeshadow primer to ensure eye shadows to stay the whole night. :)

Mio is using her eyeshadow palette from Sugar, Tokidoki for Smashbox in Celebrita, and Lancome in 4Romance.

Mio first apply the darkest black shadow to the base of her eye on top of the liner. Blend it softly with you eyeliner. Second, take a shimmer light black and apply to the ball of your eyes. Start from the center then smooth it out to the edges.

Third, apply a dark brown on top of the soft shimmer black to create a bigger eye look.

Finally, Mio like to add a goldish shimmer on the brow bone for that popping effect. (Hopefully this part is clear, and Ojou-sama is getting what Mio is trying to achieve.

For the final steps is the lower eyeliner and put on falsies. Draw close to yout wateline and boarden  the corner od your eyes like a smiling cat eyes XD...add a bit of white liner to the front corner of the eyes for that cutsy japanese anime look. Apply a thin layer of eyelash glue to your favorite falsies, blow on it for a couple seconds than apply it accordingly to the shape of your eye. **You can use falsies to push in a sort of way in creating a natural crease or the double fold*

Put on your favorite blush and lipgloss & you are good to go <3 Hope you have fun reading this tutorial and you actually learn something useful!

2 Weeks Updates :)

Ohiyo~ Goshujin-sama Ojou-sama!
Mio just came back from class today...Mikan & Mr. Gilbert both updated their blogs yesterday meaning Mio must catch up as well ^_^''
One of the reason Mio haven't been blogging was because Mio couldn't find her USB cord for her camera =-=" Gomen ne~ Mio couldn't upload pictures or charge her camera till now. Mio tend to lose things A LOT with the short-term memory of hers!!

Hopefully Mio will remember the events from the past 2 weeks from looking at the pictures and keep my Goshujin-sama & Ojou-sama happy :)

You ready?? Let's Go~  *用心する☆Pictures Heavy*

After church on Sunday, Mr. Gilbert picked Mio up to eat lunch with Kchan, Kyosuke, and John. Mio was very excited because is her first time trying "Boiling Crab"-famous for their Lousiana crawfishs & shrimps. Mio ordered mild flavor shrimps and it was really spicy 香辛料. Everyone need to wear a bib while eating in this restaurant to avoid getting sauce on our clothings...*Mio forgot to take a picture of that*

Afterward, Mio's friend Jacky came over to visit Mini Mio Chan <3 *Isn't Mini Mio Chan so cute ^^*

Mio is back at the apartment with Mikan <3 We were busy preparing our newest maid-Erri 's birthday present! Erri is the cutest, prettiest and she is the baby of the maid cafe!! and Yes! She's mine XD She is absolutely adorable...Mio give her a nickname *Baby Star* It fits her perfectly! お誕生日おめでとう
Erri believes in loving all animals includes her favorite- pandacorn! XDD (panda + unicorn). So Mio work really hard in making her a plushie phone strape. (Sorry for the blurry pictures)
Mikan also made a black =-= kitty for Erri's birthday! It is so cute...Mikan is always better then Mio when it comes to DIY or sewing >.<

Mio also made a new head dress for her maid outfit while she was at it!


After looking at these pictures...let's switch gear --> FOOD shall we?? XDD

**Notice that Mio really really really love chewy thingy like MOCHI!! <3 Mio will live off Mochi one day- mochi ice cream, japanese mochi, chinese mochi...etc any kind of mochi is welcome in Mio十's tummy XD

Cherry Blossom Festival is here!!  Mio was really happy to see her maid family again :) The Lolita Fashion Show was a success, all the girls are so pretty!! Mio feel like a doll when she was getting change by some maids for faster transition betweens models. @_@ Mio feel chubby when she saw her pictures...Nuu Nuu ; _ ;

Thank you again for those Goshujin-sama & Ojou-sama who came out and supported Animaid Cafe. Mio had a little fan who asked to take pictures with at the end of the show. This had made Mio's day ^^ !!  Mio just adore kids and want to take every single one home!

Mr. Gilbert called and told Mio & Mikan that the famous Kogi Truck is going to be in the Rowland Height at 10:30pm. Being Foodies, of course Mio & Mikan wouldn't miss out such opportunity. Kogi Truck is a Los Angeles food fusion with Korean flavor- known for tacos, burritos, & Quesadillas! Mr. Gilbert was nice enough to drove 40 mins to get Mio & Mikan from the apartment, and then drove another 30 mins to Kogi! ありがとう!   Mikan named this Food Trips! Mio & Mikan get to ride in Mr. Gilbert's bling bling car w/ Swarovski Crystal & Hello Kitty! XDD

Yummy Food~ After "dinner", Mikan want to eat dessert- Shaved Ice precisely XDD...
We drove by a pretty, modern cafe and decided to try called Apo Apo :)
Mikan ordered Strawberry shaved ice w/ condensed milk and Mio ordered....of course! MOCHI....hahaha

Mr. Gilbert also shown us his new business card with our maids pictures printed on one side. They are absolutely adorable <3
