New Skincare + My Eyes + Lulu's Contest

Hi hi hi! *waves* ~ ~ How's the weekend been, peeps? :D My monthly dot is done, infection is gone, and now a new problem - my SKIN! Yipee! I just noticed a few days ago that it's flaky and dry to the touch, so I walked to Whole Foods to buy some new stuff. All in all, I don't really care whether or not a product is "natural," just as long as it works and convenient to buy.

First, is the Devita Daytime Nutritional Moisturizer with 1% Hyaluronic Acid. I LOVE this!! It's light, but the gel is thicker than most. No scent whatsoever. Makes me skin feel really smooth.

Next is the Desert Essence Jojoba Oil - this absorbs really quickly into my skin, and makes my skin less oily in the morning.

OK~ so I know last post I said I'd do a look with the RMK palette, but I think I overestimated my abilities with the camera haha! I think I took over 20 photos of my eye, but I only liked about 6 of them - that's not a very high yield!! Please bear with me, I'll do an EOTD soon. I picked out 4 of the photos to show you - I have no eye makeup on, except some concealer. Notice how different the 2 eyes look!! I could tell you they're from 2 different people and you'd believe me *sigh*. Hmm... which eye should I do EOTD's on?

My right eye - doesn't it look like a fish? =___= This photo is a little pink... =/

And this one is a little too yellow, bleh~ Ignore the long eyebrow hairs... they need a trim but my little brother stole my tools for his own evil experiments. xD

My left eye looks TOTALLY BLOATED today, sorry! Though it doesn't look as puffy in person.

My GOODNESS - totally spaced out and out of it! O.O~ Don't I look a little dumb? xD Oh I just realized you can see my camera in there if you look closely!! hahha~ ~

Well anyway! I guess I'll keep practicing until I can get consistent exposure/lighting. THEN I have to practice with actual eye makeup on, which I suspect will be another challenge, since I want the photos as true to color as possible.

And hooray to Lulu for hosting her first blog contest!!! She is giving away the cutest things haha~ Her Summer Celebration Contest ends on June 19th, 5PM PST! Go check it out!

Alright that's all folks! Please feel free to give me some tips about the eye photo thing!! Has anyone ever tried using their computer's built-in cam to take eye pics? I might steal my b/f's laptop and try it out! hu hu hu hu *exxxccceeellleenntt*

    thanks for entering and posting about my giveaway sweetie :) A juicer is a great idea! Esp since I'll be commuting back to work after I move, I can just pour me some nutritious smoothie/juice and take them on the go! Thanks for the suggestion :)
    I want to go check out skincare products at whole foods now. I've always been curious about jojoba oil, do you just pour some and then use it as moisturizer? I like the fact that it makes your skin less oily in the morning cuz it moisturizes so well!

    I think the close-up pictures of your eyes turned out quite good! My pics always seem to be a bit blurry. :[

    Looking forward to seeing some EOTDs of you then! ;)

    hmmm yeah I'm not great with positioning when taking close ups but my tip is NATURAL SUNLIGHT is the best way to go! lol
