IBB MUC January 2015 "Exotic Japan" Underneath Your Skin #Smartlook

Hello, folks! :D

Here I am back again with another makeup challenge by Indonesian Beauty Blogger x CamJoe
So,who's CamJoe? She's a singer and her real name is Camellia Jonathan and yes, Underneath Your Skin is her latest song, which featuring Hatsune Miku! Cool right. The song has lots of electronic effects and really screams out technology in my ear. LOL.

Anyhow, IBB already held the MUC in November and December with different theme. This time the theme is Exotic Japan.

So the look is supposed to inspired from the song. So kinda like, technology x exotic..... Kinda contrast, eh? But Japan indeed is a country combining nature (how beautiful the view there) and tech (not to mention the virtual singer, Miku...).I saw CJ in the banner the first thing that came to my mind is a festival. Those in mangas where the girls dressed in yukata and hang out around the shrine (lol! read too much manga). But the word Exotic and Japan is definitely geisha. So I kinda combining a natural x geisha look and here it is.

*cough*that chubby round face argh!
No if you think I choose a wrong shade of my face makeup. I just add a layer of white shimmering powder on my face after using foundie. I didn't use it till the neck though...  (probably the biggest mistake) I still want to keep that geisha look by long and upward eyeliner.

I used kinda-burgundy-shade eyeliner and extended downwards under the eye for more traditional look. I also used blush but its under the 'apple of the cheeks' (or whatever) where we supposed to put our bronzer for shading.

I don't want to go over fabulous by using thick eyelashes so I only wear accent one and mascara

Red lips is definitely on the list. I actually made it kinda gradient but well the camera didn't caught it! And about the hair, flowers are great on the head! Muahahaha! Japanese girls always use flower hair pins on their head when then wear yukata, no? I only make like a half-done-bun. Because of my haircut is not possible to have a proper bun,,,
And my current hair is ombre, because I bleached my tail, and it's been 5 months since I'd done full head dyeing so the roots are growinggg~

I always try to spare some time for this one aside that the choir activity has gone super mad. Thankfully I finally finished this post. LOL! Anyhow I'll be going to Bandung for 11 days, yes, eleven, for the choir competition so I'll be absent till I get home by 5 February.
