Alternate Rock Make Up Tutorial *UPDATED*


The finale for Converse #GetLoud competition has been changed to 6 Oct instead of 5 October!!


After doing so many "costume party make up",
I think it's time to do tutorials for something that we can use more often. 

I was thinking what look to go for for awhile now, and then this came along. 

 Converse is organizing GET LOUD Gig Tour,
and *lightbulb* 
I'm going to do an alternate "rocker" make up.

Alternate rock as in another version of rock make up,
not the genre. =X

Alternate because rather than the usual full black eyeshadow and think black eye liner "Avril Lavigne" look,
I'm rocking other colours.

Starting with a clean face.

Using a blue eyeshadow, 
draw it on your lid as if it's your eyeliner.
Flick it up slightly at the end.

 After the line is set, slowly make the flick a lot longer. 
The trick is to extend the liner a little bit pass your original eye length, then change the angle and draw it upwards, little by little. 
Draw the line towards your temples.

Draw a thin line of black eyeliner with a small flick
As you can see, the blue has gotten below the eyes too,
but it's ok. 

Here's how it looks with eyes closed.
Not messy.

I used a liquid liner with a fine tip
to draw a thin line on the frame of my eyes.
From end to end.
Make sure the line towards the inner corners are thinnest.

I smudged a little black shadow (with the blue shadow used for the eyelid) under my eyes,
blurring the black line that was just drawn.

It turns out to be smokey-ish,
but still softer than the usual rock look. 
Brush on some blush and a light lipstick.

The final step- adding false lashes.

The final look with eyes closed

 The lashes completes the overall look. 

Serious face with alternate rock make up. 

The eye make up is almost smokey,
but when eyes are closed,
everything looks clean.

Since the eyes look bold enough,
I don't want to go with a dark lipstick.
Just keep the focus on the eyes.


If you're interested with the poster on top,
The first show will be on this Saturday at Penang Hill.
Imagine chilling (literally) and enjoying the performance of local bands.

No entrance fee needed.
Save the night for a cool jamming session. 
Starts at 7pm. 

The time again, in case you're too lazy to scroll back up.

Paranoia- 2013 (Movie afterthoughts)

My dude says the movie is not named appropriately. I agree.
I'm more paranoid than the main character and I'm not even a spy. 
If I were a spy, I would probably blow my own mind with conspiracy theories before anyone gets to me. 


Paranoia is about this young (and hot) tech guy who made one wrong decision and that became leverage for his ex-boss (because he was fired) to use him.

He was recruited and trained to become a corporate spy, well, 
to get details of a new products from, wait for it,
the competing company
of which the boss was an old mentor/ friend
now turned enemy of (the recently turned ex) boss.

It's a typical movie with no twists, 
or at least no significant-what-just-happened, you-sneaky-screenwriter-twist.

Why I said I would blow my own mind before anyone gets to me (if I were a spy) is because by the middle of the movie,
I've come up with an ending at the back of my head (multitasking baby).

I took the characters, the way they acted, and with the circumstances in the movie,
and I put myself in the character's shoes,


instant paranoia.

I would totally be watching my back if I were him.
If your boss trains you to become a spy,
wouldn't you expect that they themselves will be spying on you and see if you're actually doing your spy job?

The flaws of the movie is that the screenwriter is lazy.
A leading tech company wouldn't be so easy to hack in.
Come on, a vault with a digital coded lock that can be hacked with a normal code hacker?

If Apple HQ is so easy to hack, people wouldn't need to stay awake tonight 
just to get the announcement of the new phones. 

[I think both hardcore Android and ios supporters will be up.]
(One waiting to cheer no matter what is announced, the other ready to pounce at the lack of improvement.)

here's my   version of the story.

Adam, the hot lead is the smart, capable, next-big-thing tech guy who seeks for a chance to shine.
The boss says that his idea is shit and throws him out.
He makes the smart move of not making "that wrong decision"
and voila. 

No more movie.

*how it should have ended* Lol?

This movie is a bet by the boss on "would Adam the smart guy make the wrong decision?"
If yes, movie time!!
If no,
Oh well. 

Ok another   version of my version of the story.

Adam, the hot lead, is the smart, charismatic, capable, next-big-thing tech guy who seeks for a chance to shine.
The boss says that his idea is shit and throws him out.
He makes the dumb "wrong decision",
his boss catches him in the act, use it as leverage, and now he's the spy.

He befriends the people in the other company,
earns their trust,
gets whatever the boss wants him to get,
it turns out,

it's actually a plot to bury upcoming, smart, new tech guys that pose as a threat to both companies,
and both the bosses being enemies were just a facade.

They were working together all along. 
Adam gets:

a) killed in the process and covered up by a car accident (typical)
b) sent to jail and slammed with a huge lawsuit by the company he's spying on (for loses, yada yada)
because the bosses have evidence that he's stealing corporate information (since the first company was spying on him all along)
And he never gets his "bright future plea" because he doesn't live in this country.

The. End.

Did the movie end like I imagined it would?
Find out for yourself.

That's what J_Fish has to say~ Au Revoir~
p.s. After "The end" for Adam, the boss who sends him as a spy uses the information he gets, sells it as his company's newest product, and the second boss whose information is stolen actually planted a glitch which is so complicated it needs a "cure" that only his company has, and that product that was stolen wasn't even actually real product that they were going to market and they market the real "state-of-the-art" product and both bosses goes into a feud and they become the movie version of Bill Gates and Steve Jobs.

Spoiler: Steve Jobs dies.

Spoiler: We all die in the end.

I'm really bored at work.

One post to cover them all- August

The last picture I took with my long hair. I miss it already, but everyone seems to like me with short hair more. *sigh*

So this post is about August.
I realize that I took a lot of pictures, thinking "I'll blog about this later" but never get to use them. 
So, this is going to be a monthly thing,
as the title suggests,
a blogpost to cover all the events that I might or might not have blogged about.

First significantly interesting event that happened in August.

Stand-up comedy with Douglas Lim & Patrick Teoh, per se. 
I had a great laugh, and a little "bonding" session with the gang I went with after that.
Haven't hung out with friends in a big group for a long time.

So this was the look that I wanted when I decided I want a change with my hair. 
Curls. I love them, but they don't love me. 
The first time I curled my hair, it was disaster.
the curls were too shallow and close that I look a lot older, (at least I think so).
Not to mention it also ruined my hair. 
I had very dry hair for a very long time.

The second time was more disastrous, as I wrote in the full story of my hair makeover.
(For people who cut of 2 inches of hair and call it a makeover, please stand aside).


I went home during the Raya holidays.
And I think this is the first time I'm showing a photo of my entire family. 
Who do you think I look like more? 
*scratches chin*

First time I took Malindo Air, to fly from Subang Airport to Penang
and I took Berjaya Air from Penang back to Subang.
They're both affordable with free food and water
and 20kg (I think) of free luggage weight.

Moving on,
Good Vibes Music Fest.

My outfit for Good Vibes.

The pants were actually super short.
I got them in Bangkok, and didn't get to try them.
Cropped top from 6th floor of Sungai Wang. 
Necklace from H&M.

A rare picture of my dude and I
We rarely take picture together...
because we rarely take pictures at all.

The main act was Smashing Pumpkins,
we were there until the end,
but I think to everyone who waited till the end's dismay,
they didn't sing 1979.

 Then the day after Good Vibes, I went to this Tiger Street Football even that was held in 1Utama.

Met and greeted the gorgeous Fabio Cannavaro.
Melt die.
Because he's 40 and still hot.
His eyes are a mesmerizing shade of light blue.
*suddenly fangirl*

Since I know nothing about football,
that's the best I can tell about this event.
Did wiki him before he came in so I know just that little bit about him.

And guess who got to take a picture with him. 

 I won Clinique moisturiser from Charmaine + Nuffnang!!

Bought ringlight and tested it out. 
25 and acting cute with duck face and all.

 Checked out the Mission Q in SS15 Subang, right above Watson's facing the main road.

We took the room 2 challenge, which is "Escape from the Matrix".
It has nothing to do with the movie so don't worry,
just try it. 

We were the first team to finish and successfully escape yo!!!

But it was just their soft launch, someone probably beat our time by now. lol.
Basically the whole point of the game is to escape a "room" within the given time.
There are clues which you need to solve,
and sometimes, things are really not what they seem.

After that we went to a sushi joint, Sushi Flash a few shops next to Watsons.
It's new. The shop was the old Tutti Fruitti. 
All the sushi were really cheap,
and the food matches the price.

It's not bad though. 

On the same day,
we became adventurers with Heineken.
I ended up with a crate of Heineken. :3

I did a tutorial on this look.
Click for the tutorial.

August was ok to me. 
There were ups and downs.
But as a OL,
there's not much happening in my life,
I go to work, I go home.

Wish my life was a lot more interesting,
but wasn't born with a silver spoon in any part of my body,
and I don't get to do the "my daddy buys me everything but I still want more" rant.

But I guess it's good to be financially independent, 
and that my blog is not my only income.

So now, September,
I hope you're as beautiful as this sunrise.

That's what J_Fish wants to say~ Au Revoir~

p.s. Don't mind if I can sustain my spendings just by blogging though. =X
