Doing My Own Makeup For…

Hello! Am now in Labuan and will most probably be here until the end of February :) It’s going to be quite a busy year for me- with courses and flying back and forth, but in the meantime I’ll still try to update as much as I can!

As most of you might know, I am here not only for work, but also for the solemnisation, or the registration of my marriage to my dear other half, which was held on the 19th January 2013 :) It was a short, legal ceremony at the National Registration Department with the ring exchange and signing of the marriage certificate, followed by a beach pre-wedding photoshoot, and finally a simple buffet dinner reception later that night at the Palm Beach Resort & Spa beach pavilion for our employees, friends, clients and suppliers here.

And… I actually did my own makeup for the whole day! :P It’s quite a feat considering how I don’t exactly have confidence in my own makeup skills, and for such an important event as well :s I also did my own hair! It’s not that I wanted to skimp on a hairdresser or a makeup artist, but there were no reliable ones here so I had no choice really :(

I have to say- this is the most makeup I’ve ever brought along to Labuan, as I usually go with the bare minimum and  ones that are easier to travel with, but since this is a special occasion I guess allowances has to be made :P I’m also trying to go for a more natural, polished look, as it’s by the beach and not so formal so no need for anything special.

So what were the makeup I used for my big day?

Lemming List – January 2013

To start off the new year, here’s my Lemming List, the January 2013 edition!

Hopefully the Lemming List will be a more frequent thing on beaute fabuleuse– maybe not monthly, but more of a 3- to 6-months-once thing? I was looking through and pinning stuff on one of my Pinterest boards- Beauty Stuff I Want– when I thought, “Hey, why not?” :P I am also partly inspired by one of Joyce of Bronzer Bunny‘s post- Brands I Want More Of In 2013 :) However, not every single thing I want is on this list, though, just things I am really crushing on as I’m writing this post right now!

Happy New Year 2013!

I’d just like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy and wonderful new year ahead!

Also, to commemorate the new year- a new layout! What do you think? Let me know :D

2012 has been extremely great to me- it’s definitely been a year of massive changes and even with the so-called “bad” or “negative” changes, it’s definitely all for the better- laying down the foundation to a better future ahead, definitely, and improved as a person overall ;) Here’s to wishing that 2013 will be just as great if not better!

No new year’s resolutions- am not a fan of making and keeping them- just wishes that things will keep improving or at least maintain, and that even with obstacles, which are of course inevitable, things will turn out for the best and may we keep learning from them and keep becoming better people :D

Here’s some parting food for thought for the new year’s: a little paraphrased quote from Joey Yap, which I find very true and also live by: “Everyone is interested in the end result of something… but not many people are interested in doing the things… taking the action… going through the hard work to get to that end result“. So yes, to make when you want to happen happen, you’ll have to find out how and most importantly work for it! :)

Posts on beaute fabuleuse will resume as soon as and whenever I can, especially with 2013 planned out to be a busy one for me, what with my upcoming wedding, travels (Hopefully!) and courses! ;) Will try my best to update as much as possible!

P/S: Oh I nearly forgot- I’m on Pinterest now too!  Here are my pin-boards :D
