『Tutorial』UrMadeUpFace: Gin - Get Ready With Me!

Hello hello! 
First off, let me apologize on my complete lack of posting. 

And continuous complete lack of posting. HAHA
I'm also extremely sorry I haven't been leaving comments on any posts lately. Though I usually try to comment, I've only had the time to read them. I am keeping up with everyone though! ;v; I love you all. <3
I haven't been quite emotionally stable either. With tons of family problems and the whole ordeal with straight A's, I've been stressed. Not to mention heartache has been hitting me quite hard as well.
I really miss Carl.
A lot.

Around this time of the year is also when I start becoming super packed because of musicals. Sometimes it makes me think why I even audition for them because they're so stressful. :c
Like seriously. Rehearsal till 5:30 on a half day? That's like, 5 hours of rehearsal! ;A;

On another note, My birthday just passed! I turned 15 on the 6th of March, quite exciting! <3

Anyways, onto the entry I wrote for UrHappyBunny's blog feature! 8D It is on her blog, but I thought I'd post it as well just so I could have a place to announce a few things.

PS: Katsucon post will be coming as soon as I get all my photos back. I can't wait to share with you guys all the pretty pictures I got. //// 
Many of them are on my Facebook already! 8D


Hello there!
First off, before I introduce myself, let me thank Joanne graciously for allowing to do a blog feature. Her "UrMadeUpFace" is an ingenious idea, super happy I got the chance to do one!

So, my name is Gin.
Well, at least my online alias is.
My real name isn't too much of a mystery either, but I preferred to be called Gin on the internet. *^*

I'm 14 years old and currently in 9th grade. I actually started getting into make up around 7th grade, but now I've decided I want to pursue it. What better way than to start a beauty blog? Now, here I am, owner of gindoesbeauty.

In addition to make up, I also sing, draw, act, dance, and cosplay; you can read all about my cosplay adventures and youtube channel on my blog. ;>

Here's a small preview to a photoshoot post I'll be doing soon. B)

I usually listen to guitar or piano arrangements of songs when I do my make up.
AHHH SUNGHA JUNG. <3 His guitar playing is too amazing.
If I don't have music available, I hum~ The song I hum usually ends up deciding what colors and styles I use on my face, quite interesting!

Okiedoke. Let's get started! This is a quick and easy look I've been doing almost every morning!

"Quick, only 10 minutes left until departure!"
Fantanbulous, this shouldn't take more than 5 minutes.


Here we have the glorious bareface.

Ok, actually though, start off with washing and moisturizing. No one wants all that dirt stuck in their pores for an entire day.

Apply your favorite foundation, bb cream, or cc cream. I'm using a sample of the Etude House CC Cream I got from a recent buy. I didn't even apply powder because this product was so light. Make sure to do so if you use heavier products!

Fill in your brows and stain your inner lip with a pretty red. 
Here, I used Tony Moly's Cat Chu Wink for my lips (Which I reviewed here.) and an eyebrow pencil I purchased from BornPretty.

Take a long lasting, brown eyeliner and line that eyelid with drama! I used Maybelline's Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner.
Connect an angled line to your waterline; this completes the thick line. It has to end somewhere.
When you use a brown eyeliner, it allows much more room for movement and mistake because of it's subtlety. This makes it a perfect color choice when you're rushing.

If you have time, highlight the inner corners of your eyes. You'll seems more awake; that's always a good thing! I applied an eyeshadow stick I got from, yet again, BornPretty.

And you're done!

This look is super simple and enhances your looks in a very natural way. I don't like to stand out in school if I don't have to, so this make up look is perfect for me. I'd rather get 20 more minutes of sleep than spend 20 minutes on make up. HAHA

And of course, before I walk out, I have to grab my handy dandy EOS lip moisturizer.
That little egg is magical, I swear. Seriously don't know how I would survive without it. *A* <3


Thank you so much for reading and thank you Joanne for this guest post! <3

  1. Your made-up face looks really nice and simple! I also highlight the inner corners of my eyes too usually as most of the time, I have zombie eyes :P

    Also, I wish you luck with everything that you're going through right now. I can relate to most of the things you've been going through (except the boyfriend bit. forever alone lol). So I sincerely hope that it all works out for you! Looking forward to your Katsucon post and happy belated birthday! :D

  2. Pretty! I usually just tightline, because it doesn't look as prominent, and thick eyeliner just makes my upper eyelid completely disappear orz.

    By the way, what hair dye do you use? It looks like the perfect brown~

  3. You are so beautiful and your make up is really lovely and natural!
    Hehe, my ''school make up'' is also very simple. Sleep is better ^_^''
    I can't wait for your new photoshoot! Looks sweet~
