Monochromatic Rose Nude Makeup

 

Hey guys! This is the makeup that I’ve been pretty much wearing all day, every day – whether it’s to go to work, grocery shopping, etc. You name it, and this has been my go-to makeup look. And so, subsequently I felt inspired to make a quick tutorial about it.

Em Cosmetic’s “Rose Nude” liquid lipstick has been killing me! Their lipstick just glides on and sits on the lips perfectly. Plus it smells like chocolate (yum).

Hope you enjoy watching!

Replenish Yourself.

instagriffith001

I noticed that I’m usually doing one of two things: I either stay home or go to work. Both are indoors and it’s so easy to feel stifled. Adding on the fact that I live in a big urban city like Los Angeles, and it’s even easier to forget that plants & trees can exist and thrive freely somewhere on this planet.

So I’ve been trying to get back in touch with nature; every weekend I’m encouraging myself to hike, go to the park, etc. Sometimes it’s the last thing that I want to do after a long week… my poor man has to drag me out, haha.

I might feel grumpy in the beginning, but it works like a charm every single time. I feel so nourished, replenished, and whole again as as person.

How do you replenish yourself as a human being? ❤

20 Random Facts About Me

Hello world! I’ve been trying to branch out from just makeup tutorials into other subjects. So to start off easy, I thought I would tackle twenty facts about myself in a video.

 

Here are my facts:

  1. I am a Scorpio.
  2. I am Korean American, born and raised in Los Angeles.
  3. I am a huge fan of Beyoncé and Christina Aguilera.
  4. I want to get a dog, but because I have killed off all my goldfish in the past, I don’t trust myself to be a good pet owner.
  5. I come from a Ballet dance background. I’ve been dancing Ballet since I was eight years old.
  6. I love food. Especially nigiri sushi. I could eat uni all day, every day.
  7. I love my rice. I can have it three times a day, all day, every day.
  8. I am not a fan of olives and celery.
  9. After taking public transportation for many years, I am thankful every day for my car. My car has a name: Baby Mazda.

  18. I am all or nothing. I can either be extremely productive and a crazy workaholic; or I can be the biggest couch potato in the entire world.
  19. Sometimes I get into my work so hard that I forget to take care of myself: like drinking water, using the restroom when nature calls, eating meals, etc. And then I crash and burn. But I’m trying to get better at it.
  20. I love me some UFC mma fighting. Respect to all the professional fighters out there with your hardcore training and then going into the cage to shred up the octagon.

What are your quirky facts when it comes to you? Tell me some of yours!!
