Fuz and Mel's YT Contest Entry - Channeling Jackie O

Hello everyone! Glad to inform you that I entered Fuz and Mel's youtube contest... it took me hours (haha more like days) to finish everything! But I'm happy at the outcome.
I finally made a video.... wow I couldn't even make a picture tutorial before but look at me now! Haha! But I can't bring myself to talk or do makeup in front of the camera so you'll have to watch a picture slideshow :D

Haha the FOTD look that I did for the video... Oh and I entirely forgot to mention that I got my ears pierced after like what, 6 years of wanting them? But I did get lazy after I passed the age that I was allowed to get pierced ears.. hehe.

The look was done using the L/E eyeshadow palette from Maquillage featuring Alexander Wang. It's quite nice for a neutral palette, I really liked the purple cream liner but wasn't too crazy about the neutral shades--kind of overdone perhaps? But it is a nice palette! Will do swatches and maybe a review later.

My entry was an inspired fashion slideshow and makeup tutorial on Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Her fashion is truly classic and celebs today are wearing her looks!

very nicely made video, so detailed. enjoyed it~ see you have quite a number of vintage buys, i love vintage too!

just that I might need to disappoint you for the Anna Sui swatch, i took the picture last month actually and have already let go off the lipstick, (didn't suit me) but what i can tell you is that it's really very sheer, almost like balms, but moisturizing though, and smells wonderful (the usual anna sui fragrant)and the color for 601 is particularly pinkish (lil bit of purplish hue to it)

hope it helps! ^^
