New Hair Do!

.

I have some VERY observant readers who asked me if I did something new to my hair from my last fotd, and I did! I got- chunky cut BANGS! Damn you gals have a KEEN eye! :)

I never used to like bangs, I had them before when I was younger, and kept growing them out, but now I like them because they really change the shape of a face. I have the chubbiest cheeks ever (mind you I am only 115-120 lbs and 5'6") and I hate em, so bangs takes a little focus off my entire face so my cheeks don't look that fat, haha. But I like how it gives a more edgier, sophisticated, fashionista look.

As you can see, I kept my makeup pretty simple (what i've been sporting nowadays), I used Joppa Mineral Foundation in Medium Light #2 and a dash of Medium #3 both in full coverage. For the eyes I used "Femme Fi" e/s as the highlight, "Warming Trend" e/s from the Cool Heat collection all over the lid, and a mix of "Mulch" and "Shale" e/s on the outer-V and contour. Finished it up with a thin line of MAC Fluidline in "Nightfish" and a couple coats of L'Oreal's Telescopic Mascara. For the cheeks (although it's hard to see here) but I used MAC's "Flirt & Tease" with a touch of Silk Naturals "Jamie" blush. Then used Flirt! Bronzer in "Golden Minx" on the apples of my cheeks, nose, (pretty much in spots where the sun naturally hits me) to give me a subtle glow. For the lips, (it was probably washed out by the camera), but it was a nude lippie that I LOVE from Silk Naturals, their Kiss Bliss Demi Lipgloss in "Divine" (I thought of YOU Christiana when I bought it! LOL), it's a gorgeous nude color with a touch of pink which makes it a perfect nude lippie for any skintone because it actually doesn't make you look washed out! (I will do a post introducing these lippies (I bought several), as well as the Flirt! Bronzer in "Golden Minx" tonight!)



I know my hair looks lighter too, but I didn't change the color from my last "new do" post, I think after how many washings it sorta faded into a nice chestnut brown and my natural highlights are now showing through. Because of my skintone, (I think) I have to keep my color around the various shades of brown (my natural hair color is a dark brown, not black like most people think), black hair makes me look a bit pale, and I usually switch to a darker hue during the fall and winter time, but for the summer I like a medium or dark brown with some highlights. I never went too light because that washes me out and I personally think most Asian gals look better with darker hair as it brings out their features more. Of course if you are rocking colored contacts all the time you can pretty much do with any hair color, but I like being au natural sometimes just because I am lazy and can't keep up with maintenance, LOL.

My itty bitty nose doesn't hold my huge sunglasses up, lol. But I love big shades, big enough to hide my head! HAHA :(

The new-do looks good! I'm due for a change in hair too. And aren't big sunglasses the best? My cheeks do the holding up, not my nose. lol

love the new hair love. i was actually thinking of cutting my bangs again too! :) seeing how lately i've been wearing my hair up... i find it's only a flattering wearing my hair up if i have bangs. LOL. :P i've been LEMMING those new SN demi lipglosses! LOL. it's ironic that the divine one reminded you of me because that's one of the shades that i was lemming. LOLOL. can't wait to see your swatches and what not. :)

oh, and my nose doesn't hold up my sunglasses either. it's my chubby cheeks that do the job. LOLOLOL.

You look SO gorgeous! Blunt bangs look WAY better on you than it does on me! Poo!

COCOVJAYJAY said...

Very nice bangs. I so feel you with the sunnies...my nose is FLAT!

Tammy said...

Your hair looks great! I have been thinking about getting bangs too... right now I just have long layers around my face. My hair grows so fast that it would not take too long to grow them out if I don't like them though..

Tracy said...

cute hair! i was thinking about getting bangs again. did you get your hair cut to hide your brows? :P haha j/k. the sunglasses pic is too cute. i love plastic framed sunglasses, but my nose can never hold them up. my aunt was telling me how she wants to get a nose job b/c she wants a pointer nose!

Nanzy said...

cute bangs, Nessa :) it accentuates your cheekbones ^_^

mayaari said...

the new bangs suit you :) I gave in and got some fringe-y bangs from my last haircut, but now I'm thinking I could handle more! I'm with you on having a love-hate relationship with bangs - blame it on moms giving everyone the same bob hairstyle with blunt cut bangs in elementary school :P

Cute hair cut. I too am thinking about bangs. But with summer coming do I really want to fight with them now and then regret it all summer long. SO I decided to go layers around my face, starting with long chucky bangs and straight in the back. I can do many hair styles with long bangs. and still put it up when out in the sun... Again great hair. and keep up the good work.

Hooray for chunky bangs! I got mine cut a couple weeks ago and they're so fun. My inspiration was Tyra Banks. Haha.

Askmewhats said...

I love the bangs on yoU!!!!! I had that kind of bangs the whole gradeschool til college! so now I'm sporting a side sweep bangs! LOL you look cute!

spankedelic said...

i love your bangs. i love how they have texture to them and aren't cut straight across. i noticed bangs in your last update but didn't say anything. lol. i didn't want to be toooooooo observant. but they look good. i always want to cut bangs but am scared they're gonna be jacked up! i like side bangs =) oh, i was gonna ask you, what's a good eyeliner that won't smudge. i like to tightline and do my waterline but it doesn't stay! i think cause my eyeliner is kinda waxy and smudges. do you know of a good one that will stay all day or for the most part?

Lily said...

cuuuuuuuute bangs! the last time i got bangs, i sporadically cut them myself cuz i was watching the devil wears prada and anne hathaway's bangs looked so darn good in that movie! lol

Nicole said...

Cute! I have had bangs and they grew out... I decided my face is too oily for bangs and they look a hot mess on me. Yours are very flattering though :)

petitebelle said...
