Girl's Generation 소녀시대 Yuri PARTY Makeup Inspired Look Tutorial

Hello everyone! Since Summer is coming, many K-pop groups released new song with Summer theme. The good news is, Girl's Generation a.k.a SNSD 소녀시대 also have come back this season ^___^
I love their new song titled PARTY 파티. Their Music Video feels so energetic and so youthful :D I also love their concept MV, outfits, makeup, and hairstyles. Though I don't think some of them still look good with new hair color, like Sunny and Yoona (tbh they look prettier with brown or black hair color).

Oh anyway, for this comeback, I picked Kwon Yuri's makeup because I never recreated Yuri's makeup before ;)
(another reason is because her hair color is pretty natural and not as bizarre as other members' hair. LOL)

As usual, their makeup always been very simple and easy to do. I hardly see Yuri's eye shadow here, and from what I've observed; her subtle brown winged eyeliner and fuchsia lip color are the main points of her makeup ;)

So let's get started!

DON'T DO #DontJudgeChallenge Without Knowing The Cause

Klik di sini untuk membaca artikel ini dalam Bahasa Indonesia


Recently, I often see people on social media spreading a trend named Don't Judge Challenge or as known as #dontjudgechallenge. I bet all of you at least ever see the video once. At first I know the trend when I was scrolling my Instagram feeds and cringed. People with silly faces and strange drawing, becoming prettier in next seconds (with makeup on). My first thought was: "WTH what is this?"

I didn't really understand the meaning of this challenge, but the more I see the #dontjudgechallenge videos.. It seemed so fun.. From messy face to great face, from unappealing to attractive appearance.
BUT, after I knew the cause, I become discourage and took my decision to follow this trend.

Nah, how about you guys? Have you understand the meaning behind #dontjudgechallenge yet?
It's totally a mistake if you assume this challenge is something about transformation, from zero to hero, or from kiddy to grown-up.

#Dontjudgechallenge references, based on most videos on social media:
1. Thick unibrow
2. Face with tons of freckles and pimples
3. Fat and gross lips
4. Imperfect teeth

Jangan Ikut-ikutan #dontjudgechallenge Kalau Tidak Paham Artinya!

Click this link to read the article in English


Sebulan terakhir, aku lumayan sering melihat orang-orang di sosial media melakukan yang namanya Don't Judge Challenge atau aksi upload video dengan hashtag #dontjudgechallenge. Aku berani taruhan kalian pasti pernah lihat di sosial media manapun (paling ngga lihat sekilas). Pertama aku tau tentang hashtag tersebut pas lagi asik scroll-scroll Instagram. Aku langsung mengernyitkan dahi karena lihat video muka dicoret-coret tidak lazim, meskipun setelah kameranya ditutupin langsung berubah jadi cantik. Yang langsung muncul di pikiran: "Ih apaan sih. Kurang kerjaan banget."

Pada awalnya sih aku ngga terlalu paham, tapi semakin aku lihat video-video #dontjudgechallenge.. Kok kayaknya seru gitu ya, dari yang jelek; makeup acak-acakan kayak badut terus beberapa detik kemudian langsung jadi cakep. Aku sempat tergoda juga pengen ikutan, tapi setelah tau maksud di balik semua itu, aku jadi mengurungkan niatku.

Nah kalian sendiri bagaimana? Apa sudah paham #dontjudgechallenge itu apa?

Suatu hal yang konyol kalau challenge itu diartikan sebagai masa perubahan / transisi / transformasi dari jelek ke cakep, atau dari kecil ke besar. Sebelum kita buru-buru ikutan, ada baiknya kalian mengetahui terlebih dahulu asal muasal challenge itu berasal.

Biasanya orang-orang yang ikutan upload video ini, mencoret-coret wajah mereka dengan beberapa ciri-ciri:
1. Alis nyambung (unibrow)
2. Muka penuh bintik-bintik (seperti jerawat)
3. Bibir dower / tebal
4. Gigi jelek, tidak sempurna

Guergi Cover Foundation [review]

Hey guys! I'm currently in holiday, back to my hometown :D What do you do spend this holiday?
Old readers must have known that I barely wear foundation, even for special occasions. I hate thick and heavy layer that covers my face like a mask; thus I prefer BB Cream or CC cream over foundation. Since I heard many good reviews about this product, I became tempted to try this foundation. Well, this was my latest foundation after quite a while :p
