My 1st Photo shoot experience

DSC_5662

Hi everybody, CASS here! I haven’t updated for a very long time already, ’cause I’m sooo busy with my school projects and assignments, and it’s insane, I’m half dead already haha!

Actually, I originally wanted to write this post about my first photo shoot experience, right after I finish my photo shoot, but unfortunately I wasn’t able to squeeze out time for my blog TT But now I have a little time to catch up the posts that I’ve postponed, so enjoy!

IMG_2919

So firstly, this was my makeup for the photo shoot, collab with a local street wear clothing brand called Kiz Urban

For me, the makeup was considered heavy, I think it’s because of the lipstick, actually I borrowed the lipstick from a friend of mine, because I don’t really use dark coloured lipsticks. In order to match with the concept, I put on the suitable makeup.

The photo shoot took place in the Bukit Bintang district, the weather was humid and we’re all wearing thick long hoodies. Plus, for convenient purposes, I was told to wear a tube top beneath, so you can imagine how I feel under the sun. I literally looked like someone who just came out from the shower.

These are some behind the scenes of the shoot, I was sitting in a fake vehicle which probably hadn’t been clean for who knows how many years, I’m trying my best to look professional while fighting the urge to let out a disgusted face haha, this was so funny!

IMG_2877

My face changed back to ‘normal mode’ right away, after the photographers stop, I was thinking ‘how the hell someone can stand this weather under all these clothes’, while saying  ‘it’s so hot here right?’, but they just looked at me awkwardly, and I was like ^~^

DSC_5329DSC_5341DSC_1264DSC_5320

Luckily, the photos came out quite nice, thanks to the brilliant photographers and this ‘not so professional’ model haha! But this doesn’t look like me at all, I think my friends will also find the photos strange because I’m usually not related with the street vibe, but I’m trying hard nowadays.

And again, some more behind the scene photos. You know, as I’m not a professional model, and this is my first time trying out a photo shoot. I was so awkward at the beginning, ’cause I didn’t know a lot of poses, and I need to put a straight face on, and I mean it, no laughing and no smiling, just need to act cool and look as fierce as you could, , but as someone like me, I was laughing mad inside, but I manage to hold on my craziness.

Personally, I think I look better in black? What do you think? By the way, changing the fishnet while you’re all sticky and sweaty, it’s the worst thing ever…

My friend who accompany me to the photo shoot, and help me carry all my stuff, thanks hehe, Kenwin (Left)

My photo shoot partner, who looks mature but younger than me (what….), nice to meet you, Joe (Right)

As a first timer, solo shoots were already very difficult, and for someone whose a bit shy with strangers, couple shoots were a bigger challenge for me. But I manage to get more comfortable around my partner, after some self introduction and chit-chat.

DSC_5529DSC_5533

I really like the photo’s that we’ve took beside the road, because the garment that I was wearing matched the background well, black & yellow stripes. The spade logo at the front was simple but cool!

Out of all the looks, I personally like the black hoodie the most, if you guys are interested, you can find it here.

Photos took by my phone:

I think they still look decent, even though the effects and quality of the professional cameras are obviously better.

SMALL TALK:

IMG_2944The real meeee~~~~ (Someone photo bomb-ing ^^)

So, in my opinion, it was a very fun and interesting experience, that I encourage people to participate if they have a chance. Although it’s kinda tired, but I’ve learned some new poses and manage to meet some new people. So as a one-time experience ‘model’ this is what I’d like to say:

  • Remember to bring your makeup products for some touch up.
  • Better to wear something inside (that can be shown in public), because you may need to change in public.
  • Bring a friend with you, if you don’t have an assistant. It’s more convenient, and it could be less awkward.
  • You’ll need to be comfortable under the eyes of others, because most of the people will just stare at you when you’re doing photo shoots in public (I remember there’s one time which I sat down beside the road, and a lof of people in their cars turned around and stared at me, creepyyy)
  • Lastly, enjoy and have fun !!!

Twinning Time ❤

IMG_2161

Hi guys, CASS here! As you all know, in college I like to dress up for class, & have fun with my closet. So now I have a bunch of classmates who has the same interest, and we’ve started doing some twinning , we had fun doing these & it came out quite good! And recently trying out the street style kinda look, I don’t know if it suits me or not haha.

This is the NG photos, so awkward to take pics on the table LOL.

We finished one of our presentations last week. This marketing presentation is to talk about a haute couture fashion brand, and we’re told by the lecturer to dress up similar to the brands style & vibe. So this is what it turned out to be.

It’s quite interesting to dress up for presentations, besides the formal wear. We’re actually from different groups,  but I guess we blend well haha.

I’ll update more about my college life soon, stay tune & see ya ——– LOVE, CASS.

 

My College Daily Outfit ♥

Hey guys ♥ CASS here ! I’m in college now & currently majoring in a Fashion Design course, which makes me feel a little frustrated day by day because I have a lots of assignments to do & need to think of what to wear to school every single day TT

But it is fun to mix & match my clothes, and sometimes I would even find and create new styles. So I’m here to share my closet and choices for daily outfits, Enjoy !

SMALL TALK:

As you can see, I love to wear chokers with off shoulder tops, it’s a simple combination. As for oversize tops, you can simply wear any shorts beneath. Other than the outfit itself, It is better to add some accessories that is suitable for the look (ex: earrings, watches, bracelets… ) You can style up your hair too (ex: ponytails, hair buns, braids…) to show diverse styles.

By the way, have fun with your daily outfits, and find the style that suits you the best. Besides having good fashion sense, having confidence within yourself is more important. Confidence shines out the most ♥ See ya soon —– LOVE, CASS.

My New Haircolor ♥

IMG_0655

Hi, CASS here ♥ This is my original black hair. Recently I’ve dyed my hair into brown, but I was not happy with the results, so I’ve bleached my hair into grey instead.

At first, I was so scared that bleaching would hurt my hair, and I’ll gradually become bold, but after thinking, I’ve thought that since I’m still young, it’s fine to give new things a try, new experiences wouldn’t hurt, right?  So I just got my hair bleached as soon as I got time ^^

 

IMG_0802

So at first, the brown hair turned out to be like this, actually it’s not ugly, or hideous at all, but I just don’t get the vibe of it.

Maybe photos of people with beautifully-bleached hair had an effect on me since some time ago (On Facebook,Twitter, Instagram…) I’ve had an urge to try it on my own, so it turned out that brown hair couldn’t satisfy my curiosity ☺

 

Before bleaching my hair, I’ve done tons of research for the suitable style for myself. I’ve went everywhere (I mean on the Internet) for samples & continuously imagining that their hair was on mine. It was then I decided to dye it grey.

 

IMG_0860

 

And on the day that I went to the salon for a ‘re-dye’, the stylist told me about the circumstances that I would face after bleaching my hair:

  • My hair would get very dry, I mean super-duper dryyy.
  • I need to use hair care products.
  • Need to use hair mask and serum as frequently as possible.
  • Zero perming.
  • ……

After grasping the idea of it, I’ve undergo the 6 hour process of bleaching & hair dye, waohhhh I was bored as hell…. Other than sliding through websites on my phone, I’ve got nothing else to do TT

 

IMG_0869IMG_0863

Tadaaaaa, the hair came out perfectly (I mean at first), but I have a lot of hair care procedures to undergo everyday, soo tired! But at least I tried ☺ Maybe I’ll share my hair care products with you guys if I have time ^^

I’ll have to dye my hair again after 2 to 3 weeks time, because bleached hair seems to lose color more rapid than normal hair.

 

IMG_0916

I kinda like my grey hair now, but it’s somewhat troublesome. It takes 3 to 4 years for me to cut off all the bleached-parts of my hair, probably I’ll dye my hair back to black or other dark colors when I’m older, to look more mature. But thoughts might change, I wouldn’t know!

Just remember that youth is the best time for us to try, & to get hurt, it’ll lead us to a better & stronger adulthood. When we’re young, we have time to heal, as we get older, it’s better for us to keep things in the safe way.

So let’s go YOUNG, WILD & FREE, live a dreamy life ♥ —- LOVE, CASS.

img_9385

Hi fellas, CASS here ! Here’s my first nail art tutorial, it’s very simple, besides, I haven’t bought the nail tools that I needed, but I’ll soon ☺ So please bare with the flaws, because I’m using bamboo sticks and hair pins to draw my nails for now. Let’s start anyway, enjoy ♥

 

Tools:

  • Nail painting brush (bamboo stick / toothpick )
  • Gel top coat
  • Gel base coat
  • Nail polish: silver , pink / nude
  • Masking tape
  • Scissors

 

 

Steps ♦:

  1. Cut your nails or shape them, if you want to. (I cut my nails shorter and squared them)

img_9338

 

2. Apply a coat of nail strengthener or nail protection gel. (I’m using O.P.I’s nail strengthener)img_9339img_9341

 

3. Apply a coat of pink/ nude color nail polish.

img_9392

 

 

4. Cut masking tapes into the shape as below ⇓

 

 

5. Paste the shaped-masking tape on your nails, leave a small space between the tip of your nail and the tape. (You can random your designs, don’t need to paste it on all nails)

 

 

6. Paint the upper tip of the your nails with silver nail polish, and the masking tape will prevent you from painting outlined.

*You need to peel off the masking tape as fast as possible, before the nail polish dries, it’s best to peel off right after applying the color.img_9360

 

 

7. Draw some small dotes with a nail brush/ bamboo stick at the sides of your nails to add some design.

What makeup beginner needs ?

this

Hi fellas, this is CASS~ I’m here today to introduce some of the makeup products that I’m using at the moment. Since I’m still a makeup beginner, I tend to like makeup products which gives a more natural feeling. As a student who still doesn’t earn a living, I prefer using korean beauty brands because it seems to be more economical compared to other brands.

Here, I’m going to give my personal opinion on the makeup products that I’ve used, and I hope this will give a big help for other makeup beginners out there ♥ Enjoy

THE FACE SHOP:

These are the most recent ones that I’ve bought on my trip in Taiwan.

cushion_acushion

Product:   CC Ultra Moist Cushion   (#V203 NATURAL BEIGE)

Usually you need to apply another coat of powder after having the foundation on, to make it stay, but this product has a SPF 50+ & PA+++ sunscreen, and you can just skip the powder step.

This CC moist cushion is easy to apply, and it gives off a glowing effect to your skin, if you only need a natural makeup and no contouring include, this is enough for you.

concealerconcealer_a

Product:   CC Concealing Cushion   (#V203)

This product is used to hide those blue-black areas on your face, ex: dark circles, corner of the lips. I have serious dark circle problems, and I think it’s quite useful, you can really see the results. I choose this concealing stick which has the same color tone with my CC Moist Cushion, to make the blending more natural.

eyebroweyebrow_a

Product:   Designing Eyebrow Pencil   (#04BLACK BROWN)

Actually, eyebrows are more important than eye makeup, so every girl needs to have an eyebrow pencil. I have black hair so I choose a color tone similar to my hair. This product has two tips, one is the pen itself, the other is an eyebrow brush.

eyeliner_eyeliner_a

Product:   Ink Graffi Brush Pen Liner   (#02 INK BROWN)

This eyeliner is suitable for makeup beginners like me, because the tip is small and easy to draw, I introduce this product if you’re still not familiar with makeup. This brownish color makes my makeup more natural compare to the black ones.

blush

blush_a

Products: Single Blush   (#PK03)

I haven’t used it before. There are other colors to choose from, this one tends to be a little bit pinkish.

lipsitck_2lipsitck_2a

Product:   Ink Gel Stick   (#PK02 ROSE PEONY)

I’ve been introduced to this lipstick by a staff, this is one of the popular products in THE FACE SHOP. My lips easily gets dry and cracked, but this gel stick isn’t to dry, it’s moisturizing and easy to create a gradient lips look.

lipsitck_1alipsitck_1

Product:   Tint In Oil   (#01 CHERRY KISS)

I really like this tint, it gives a beautiful result. This product isn’t to heavy to use on the lips, the color is a little transparent but according to the color that you choose, it makes your lips glow and look juicy (feel shy to say that ☺) One of my favorite lip tints ♥
