and since I didn’t like how I looked last makeup test, I picked another one and this time I felt myself πŸ˜€

I like how I looked this time, I wish I can make it myself (although I doubt I have the patience to spend 1.5 hours to make it ;))

It’s my last night here in Shanghai, I’m flying back to the US tomorrow. I kind of miss my life there. I miss Star. I miss routines and I miss veggies (more about that later! )

See u in US! πŸ˜€

Next post will be about my 2011 resolutions in addition to those πŸ˜‰

  1. Happy belated new year!!! Your makeup is STUNNING.

  2. You miss veggies?! Can’t wait to hear more about that, because if I’m not mistaken I see a TON of veggies in all of your traditional dishes!

    Your makeup looks amazing. I agree, it does look better than last time (although I did like the way it looked last time). Happy new year! πŸ™‚
    Have a safe trip back to the US.

    would you believe i’ve never eaten a chestnut?!! this makeup is much more subtle though i though you looked stunning in both makeup trials! i think the last one looked more ‘celebrity’ or pop star and this one looks more glamorous. to be honest—you are so beautiful naturally coco that it is not difficult to create a pretty look!
