more Useful Make Up tips - by Faith @ LBC :)

1. To avoid looking greasy and shiny after applying foundation, apply a face powder ( loose or pressed ) with a powder brush all over the face, it prevents your foundation from slipping too!

2. If you find liquid eyeliner hard to apply, dot three dots around your eyelid and join them up step by step, practise makes perfect!

3. To make your eyeliner last on your waterline, gently dry it with a cotton bud, apply eyeliner and use a angled brush to brush on eyeshadow the same shade.

4. To avoid lipstick on your teeth, put your ring finger in your mouth ( like a lollipop ) and pull it out, the lipstick that COULD be on your teeth is now on your finger, now, smile! :)

5. If you have thick hair, section ( halve ) your hair into pieces and straighten, it will make it last longer and should be easier!

6. To make straightened hair / backcombing hair last longer, spray hairspray on a paddle brush prior to using and brush through hair, then style away!

7. Make sure you treat your hair to nice hair masks, don't damage too much! I use Aussie 3 Minute Miracle works a treat!

8. But, don't use hair masks too much, they are usually for once / twice a week, they can be too heavy for your hair and make your hair look lifeless!

9. To save your pennies, Use your old powder puff for greasy hair! dab it on your roots, the powder will asorb the oil.

AND 10!: Blowdry your hair upside down, this will increase volume!

Outdoors Heaven - Hello Kitty Jacket with Hoody!

That was really cold weekend, and sleeping outdoors in May is still little too early in a year, the nights are so freezing! Still, we survived, and had really nice early breakfast of bacon sandwich, yummers ;) I always have little problem when choosing right Jacket Hoody when staying outdoors. I know that wearing few layers is the best bet (and having few blankets and sleeping bag can do no harm too)! I found my new Darkside 'Hello Kitty' Black Hoodie Jacket is the best when it comes to keeping warm. Thick fleece lining, long fitted sleeves, high neck and deliciously longer length is just ideal for any cooler days. I picked size bigger, so this Jacket and Hoodie can be worn over few underlayers, like jumper and cardigan - lush! You'll find these Hello Kitty Black and White Tops to be made from top quality thick material, with deep hoods and comfy pockets, and I'm always big fan of high neck, their so much for flattering on white jacket than standard low neck!

How To Pass as Scene Girl if You're Dark Skinned?

Are you Black Girl and love Screamo, Rock and/or any alternative music but you don't really got the looks? Do you like to go to concerts where there's always bunch of insanely pale Scene Girls that look absolutely stunning? You can find your way around it and look super cute as Scene Girl with few of these handful tips:

  • Hair: If you want your hair to be as manageable as possible, you should invest in a 'kiddie' perm. The perm will straighten your hair.
  • Afterwards, take a rattail comb, (try not to use a brush unless you're most comfortable with that), and comb the front of your hair (from your crown) so it falls into your face or to the side, so it looks like a side bang (if you dont have one). Make sure you've got a good amount of hair (not too much so you don't have any hair in the back and not to little so when you go outside it flows everywhere in the wind). Now, put a clip in it to hold it (and make you look super kawaii [a.k.a cute]).
  • Another cute scene style that is acceptable around your friends/family is putting your hair into a low ponytail, and letting your bang [of course] and random chunks of hair fall down where your sideburns should be.
  • If you want front bangs do the same thing but instead of moving your hair to the side, just brush it down your face and find a length that you like and snip snip. Also add a hairclip or headband of your liking. Make sure your hair is dry when you cut it, or your bangs may end up really short!
  • Makeup: Simple. Just wear some eyeliner (preferably black), mascara (optional), and some foundation. You should do brighter and bolder eyeshadows - the best ones would be grey or neon colored. A sheer white, and things of that nature, would just look odd. Remember it all depends on your skin tone.
  • Clothes/Accessories: Skinny Jeans are a must. Also if you have any graphic tees [tee shirts with words or pictures on them] wear them!. Some major scene characters to wear on your shirt are Hello Kitty, Gloomy Bear, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and basically any wacky looking things. If you don't feel like wearing skinny jeans and you want to wear leggings, do not wear tutus. If you want to wear pantyhose, they must be designed and you have to wear an oversized tee. For shoes, wear converse, vans, or flats. Nike dunks are also becoming popular. Boots are becoming popular in scene style also. A long pearl necklace wrapped around two or three times if you feel for it. Bracelets and rings are also cute.
  • Start slowly with clothes and makeup. First off, you will be called a poser. Don't start too quickly because (especially) if you have parents from another country, they'll be all "WTF?" and start complaining about your new look. Remember: Start slow.
