  • How did you make your #selfie special?

This selfie is special because it is the first time I did a full beauty / makeup post here in my blog. I am not much of  a makeup junkie so I was a bit challenged on how to pull this one.

  • What’s your inspiration for your #selfie?

I’ve always adored African women’s style of hair-dressing. They just look so fashionably unique. And days before #SpookyokeNight I’ve been contemplating if I should let my Cleopatra look don the coveted head wrap. Unfortunately, I ended up not doing it because a.) I had no time to wrap my fuzzy hair and b.) it was a chilly night  that I needed to wrap my body rather than my head.

On my makeup inspiration? I only used what I have, trying to create a frosted and light tone that can be worn during daytime. However, the cat-eye is something that I failed to do during #SpookyokeNight so I just did it here.  You see from below I don’t own much products and honestly I only started buying and doing my own makeup 3 years ago. I am so used to visiting salons to get my hair and makeup done since it is more convenient. My turning point was when hubby and I moved to China, and I couldn’t find any English speaking saloon person.

Isn’t it amazing what make-up can do? From a totally weird looking face then to a “puma-pouty lips” safari chic kuno.

  • In general, what do you think of #selfies? Do you like it or not?

I think it is a new trendy way of expressing and voicing out whatever goes on inside our head. For me, #selfie is a healthy way of life as long as it won’t be used to promote destruction of one’s dignity, respect and self-image.

  • What, if any, is your favorite selfie by a celebrity on the Internet?

All #selfies by Beyonce, why? She just can’t do wrong for me.
