Keeping Up With My Own MUA

Do you ever think that your friend could be more than just a friend?
Not to be your lover but more than that.
a Make Up Artist.

I met this girl on the first day of college whom I thought this girl was a fatty but actually thinner than Kylie. You never get to choose who you’ll meet, it happens just like that and we never meet someone by accident but it must be for a reason.

I had an event that asked me to look different than usual. And the second probability, I was the one who wanted to look different because I thought it was a special event. Honestly, I’m a kind of person who doesn’t like to wear much make up on my face, I can do make up but only the natural ones.

The girl next to me is my bestie, partner in doing silly things and absolutely my favorite MUA. Her name is Zahra, usually called Ara not Zara because if her name was Zara, I must have had one million dollar vouchers from her. She’s still the same person with the girl I met at seven-eleven, always act sarcastically funny but sadly not pretty.

That was just a joke. She’s pretty.
Really.

Back to the special event, Zahra offered herself to do my makeup. I once checked on how she does her make up on her phone and I admit it, she’s pretty good at it for an amateur. And this is the result on me,

And for the main makeup I used these all, the rest are still secret and will be revealed soon because I have something big to tell in the end of this blog post.

Honestly, we couldn’t stop laughing while she was doing my makeup. Glad the makeup was fine and none of us ruined it. And here are some selfies we took while waiting for the event to start,

Although she’s still learning to do makeup but I truly admire her work and I believe she will be an expert in time, that’s why I featured her on this week’s blogpost because I thought she deserved it. Keep up the good work, mate!

How To Make Scrapbook With Recycled Paper

As I’ve promised on 3 Fun Things I Do When I’m Bored ‘s post that I would post how I did my scrapbook with recycled paper where you don’t need to buy new papers and stuff, you only need old newspapers which are left out in your garage.

At first I didn’t mean to make a scrapbook at all, I even had no idea and didn’t know why that I actually made it eventually. I got a task from my Art teacher at school to make a recycled paper. I was really not into it at first because it wasn’t my thing at all (and still not, I guess because I’m a consumptive person eh?). But however I had to finish this work with my group.

I’m not gonna explain how to make recycled paper, because the needed stuff seems complicated and I’m pretty sure, 75% of people would rather buy recycled papers at Scrapbook Store instead of making it themselves. And here are things you need to make your own fancy scrapbook :

needed stuff

  • Notebook
  • Recycled Paper
  • Glue (I used glue for wood because it sticks better than paper glue)
  • Scissor
  • Random Buttons
  • Any other stuff you may think it’s cute for your scrapbook

HOW TO :

  1. Take the hard cover off of the book. It’s either the front or the back page.

  2. Glue the hard cover with recycled paper neatly.

  3. Pierce the covered hard cover holes with scissor/knife or anything you think it’s sharp to use.

  4. And your current scrapbook looks like mine so far

  5. Now, it’s time to spice up your masterpiece. I made “Okay? Okay” sign for my scrapbook’s back page. And I used ice cream sticks for short quotes, letters from magazine, buttons and lace that I got from my button’s case as bonus. Use your creativity to make the most fancy scrapbook evah!

  6. The scrapbook is done, BUT it still doesn’t look like a scrapbook to me. Let’s make a cover for it. Use duplex carton for its cover, adjust the size with your own scrapbook.

  7. After that, cover the duplex carton with another carton or paper. It’s for the inside of scrapbook cover, so it won’t look messy. If you’ve finished covering the duplex carton, reverse the other side of duplex carton and cover it with recycled paper. If you’re running out of recycled paper, you can use carton/paper/fabric/etc.

  8. Back to your notebook, twine the notebook ring from the top to the bottom of notebook with scrapbook rope (I don’t know what it is called exactly but I found this rope in Scrapbook Store).

    Do not tie the rope, take the scrapbook cover you’ve pierced, put the rope in the hole and twine the scrapbook cover like you did to your notebook.

  9. Voila! It’s done! You can do anything you want with your scrapbook cover. And this is how my scrapbook looks like,

     So, that was how I made my scrapbook and I hope you’re inspired to do the same. It’s really fun to do. Take some pictures, print ’em out and stick ’em on your scrapbook. Have a great weekend! 🙂
