How would you describe your style and who are your style icons?
My style really depends on my mood. I can go comfy casual with just a comfy sweater and a pair of leggings or wear something classic with a pretty top with a pair of pants and a blazer. I will add that I love blazers, scarves and statement pieces, whether it’s a bag, coat or jewelry. This is because I feel that the scarves and blazers make the outfit look complete and put together while the statement pieces makes the outfit stand out!
I love people watching and seeing the different styles and various ensembles. It lets me discover new fashion trends and may also inspire me to mix and match what I already have in my closet. I don’t have a specific style icon. I prefer to go by what I like and what suits my body type instead of seeing who is wearing what.
What's in your everyday make-up bag?
Is it weird that I don’t carry a makeup bag? A lot of girls do but I don’t. I only have a lip stain since I am very pale.
I usually do my nails at home so I do not have the habit of carrying them around in a makeup bag but for something nail related, a base, top coat and moisterizor.
What is your beauty routine like?
Since my posts are nail related, I will answer to that context. I start by filing them to the shape I want. Next I take some nail polish remover and a cotton ball to remove any remaining nail polish if there are any. Next, apply base coat, polish/stickers,rhinestones and top coat. I feel as if the base is always neglected but they do help to protect your nails while top coats help to seal in the design, cover up blemishes and gives your nails a shine.
If you could makeover a celebrity, who would it be and what look would you give them?
Hmm.. I do not have anyone in particular. I’ll work with what I am given with, who I’m given to.
Any tips for someone wanting to mix up their look?
I would say go for it. You might not be used to it at first but don’t be afraid to try something new. Who knows? You might even like the change after a while once you get used to it. It doesn’t have to be so drastic for a start. You can do something small like a different type of outfit of what you normally wear. It’s just an outfit, if you don’t fancy it, you can easily remove or change it. Just because its different doesn’t mean its ugly. You do not need something panesh or electic for a start but at least something new or out of your comfort zone. Try to find what suits you, your personality and body type. Other people might criticise it especially when they are not used to it or find it different. But that’s alright. We all have our own likes and dislikes. You don’t have to be upset when people reject or critisise you, your looks or style. Nice things are rejected by people who can’t afford them ;) But seriously, everything is beautiful when you stop looking for flaws.
Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?
Besides nails, I love fashion and DIYs. Fashion is a form of fine art. I like DIYs because I like how I can personalized and customized things to cater to my own needs. I also love cooking and eating, (well more of eating. Haha!) And cooking is art, that you can eat!
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Since this is related to fashion, I have a little poem, I made here. I hope you guys will like it! (:
Style is a form of fine art,
to share and impart.
Its used to express,
but not to impress.
Styles are all different,
but yet they are coherent.
Fashion can come from anywhere,
isnt that a pretty cool affair?
We have our likes and dislikes,
from all the various types.
Just because you dislike it, doesn’t mean its bad.
Find what suits you, rock it and you will look rad.
Fads will always change,
but we will learn how to manage
no matter how strange.
Trends may change through the years,
But keep your old clothing and it might reappear.
Style is never ugly, just unique,
Which makes it extremely chic!
This poem is my interpretation of style. Basically, what I am trying to say is wear what you suits like, what you like or what makes you feel good. Be you! Be happy! Remember, the privilege of this lifetime is being you!
