VSCO Filters That Fashion Bloggers Use On Instagram

Photography

Have you been thinking about what filter that your favorite fashion bloggers use for their pictures on Instagram? This time, I am going to reveal three classified VSCO filters that these fashion bloggers (whom I like) always use on instagram.

So I’ve been keeping up with VSCOCAM by drowning my skill into its nitty gritty. Isn’t it so boring to see the same old filter such as F2, SE3, HB1, HB2, etc without any retouch and that’s it. Then I’ve finally found a few awesome patterns which I think these patterns are quite but surely similar with the filters that these fashion bloggers always use on Instagram, okay so let’s get started!

1. Andy Torres (@stylescrapbook)

Her posts on instagram are always adorable which always make people say “her pictures are goddess!”.

HB1 doesn’t look good for dark pictures but looks good for selfies. As you can see on Andy’s pictures, the original pictures of its filter is bright already, so if you want to restart your instagram feed with this filter, I suggest you to take more bright pictures.

2. Nicole Ciotti (@nicholeciotti)

Nicole’s pictures on instagram look reddish and bright. It’s also because of her reddish hair and the effect of the filter she uses, I assume she uses SE2 or C1 preset on vscocam.

C1 looks good for selfies if you add a little bit of exposure around +1 or +2 and lowering the sharpness of C1 preset from +12 to +6 or +7.

3. Gizele Oliveira (@giizeleoliveira)

Looks fade and reddish without a touch of contrast. I assume she uses F2 for her pictures.

F2 might give different result for particular skin color since its high contrast with a little touch of fade could make your skin darker or probably brighter. This filter pattern looks perfect for summer pictures.

What do you think about these filters? I hope you find them useful! Take some great pictures, try to use one of these filters and take a chance to be like these fashion bloggers too.


Color Show by Maybelline

beauty, Latest Posts

This time, I’ll be reviewing this popular nail polish by Maybelline, Color Show. Honestly, I never had my nails polished on before so I wanted to give it a try.

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

I bought the Moon Beam 103 Color Show. I also have White Tip Pencil by Oriflame and a Nail Buffer by The Body Shop. You can easily get them in any make up stores nearby.

The first thing I had to do was to get my nails buffed, so it would help the nail polish work properly on the shining and smooth nails. I really like the Nail Buffer I have from The Body Shop, because I’ve tried any brands for the nail buffer and they made my nails uglier instead. It has 4 sides :

1. File Nail Edge / Limer
This side helps you to file your nails as you wanted. It could be rounded, square or oval shape.
2. Remove Ridges / Lisser
Before you start smoothing your nails, it’s best for you to remove the ridges first. Begin to buff your nails with a gentle, side-to-side motion.
3. Smooth Nail / Adoucir
Your nails now look healthier and the result will be much healthier than ever indeed. Buff your nails with a gentle, side-to-side motion again. Don’t lose your faith girls.
4. Shine Nail / Faire Briller
This one is my favorite. Keep buffing your nails and your nails will be shining bright like a diamond.

Then second, I colored the inside of my nails with White Tip Pencil by Oriflame. It’s actually not really important and the result by using this one won’t be really significant too. I used this to make the inside of my nails look cleaner.
The last thing I had to do was polish my nails with Color Show. It was really hard for the first time, you need to be patient and need extra attention on it or your nails will be messed up. And this is how my nails look like,

I started loving to get my nails polished. When the moment I had just done with my nails, my nails felt cold somehow but if it happens to you, it’s fine and there’s nothing to worry about because it’s an absorption process temporarily.

Are you interested to get your nails polished now? Great! You can follow those super easy steps and good luck! 🙂

Get On Diet With Vanilla Ice Cream

lifestyle

This diet method lets you eat Vanilla Ice Cream. Isn’t that bizarre? This diet is totally different than the others, it only needs 3 days to lose around 10 pounds. Because of that, I wanted to give it a try.

Day 1
I started day one on Tuesday. I bought some foods I needed for the next 3 days because I was actually running out of food in the fridge, ouch how sad. You need a total preparation before you do this diet.

  • Breakfast 
    1/2 grapefruit
    1 slice of toast
    2 tbspn of peanut butter
    1 cup of coffee (with caffeine) or teaProcessed with VSCOcam with f2 presetHow I did it :
    I didn’t have grapefruit, so I substituted grapefruit by putting 1/2 tsp of baking soda in a glass of water
    What I felt :
    2 tbspn of peanut butter but I only had 1 slice of toast. I started feeling nauseated before I had tasted it but actually it felt okay at first but then I felt queasy in the last bite. After I had spent the peanut butter and toast, I drank a glass of baking soda and I felt more queasy than ever. I like peanut butter but not that much.
  • Lunch
    1/2 cup of tuna
    1 slice of bread or toast
    1 cup of coffee (with caffeine) or teaProcessed with VSCOcam with f2 presetHow I did it :
    I substituted tuna with chicken. I added a little bit of spices like pepper and salt in it. Very little. I couldn’t eat plain chicken for God’s sake.
    What I felt :
    I started enjoying this diet. Though two hours after meal I had felt hungry, I couldn’t get some snacks and eat and smile. I had to wait for dinner.
  • Dinner
    3 ounces of any meat (same size as deck of cards)
    1 cup of green beans
    1 small apple
    1/2 banana
    1 cup of vanilla ice creamProcessed with VSCOcam with f2 preset How I did it :
    Meat that I ate was chicken, I didn’t eat 3 ounces of chicken, that was quite too much for me. And I only ate 3 green beans, I don’t know if that was the same as 1 cup of green beans but I only ate 3. I also substituted small apple with pears. I had a quite big pear and I only ate half of it.
    What I felt :
    Dinner is my favorite in military diet because I could eat ice cream. I felt hungry at 9 above, I used to eat whatever I wanted whenever I felt hungry but this time, I had to control my lust on foods.

Day 2
I woke up at 7 and went to the kitchen immediately. I know that we technically have to wait at least two hours before breakfast, but I didn’t mind, I cooked for my lovely belly. But you know what? I successfully lost 2 pounds from Day 1! Let’s see what would happen in Day 2.

  • Breakfast
    1 slice of bread or toast
    1 egg cooked (however you like)
    1/2 bananaProcessed with VSCOcam with f2 presetHow I did it :
    I made omelette because I hate sunny side up egg. I accidentally added too much butter, so the omelette looks oily in the pic above. But I left it for a couple of minutes and wrapped the omelette with tissues to get the oil absorbed.
    What I felt :
    That was enough for breakfast.
  • Lunch
    1 cup of cottage cheese
    1 hard boiled egg
    5 saltine crackersProcessed with VSCOcam with f2 presetHow I did it :
    I went out that day, so I put the meal into a food container. I substituted cottage cheese with 1 slice of cheddar cheese. I didn’t find saltine crackers but I found a cracker which has 9 calories. All you need to know is, each saltine cracker has 13 calories.
    What I felt :
    It was good but I’m not satisfied. People who are on diet will never be satisfied, will they?
  • Dinner
    2 hot dogs (with no bun)
    1 cup of brocolli
    1/2 cup of carrots
    1/2 banana
    1/2 cup of vanilla ice creamProcessed with VSCOcam with f2 presetHow I did it :
    I kinda cheated in the afternoon. My mother brought me meatballs and I ate 3 because I was tempted. And I also had no hot dog that time, I completely forgot about hot dog. So, I think it was fine and I became a vegen by substituting hot dogs with a cup of green beans.
    What I felt :
    It tasted so vegetable.

Day 3
I lost 2 pounds from day 2. It was the same as I had lost from day 1. I had known this from the start, I wouldn’t lose weight up to 10 pounds, maybe 6 pounds or less. But however, I had been doing it for 2 days and I only needed one more day to finish.

  • Breakfast
    1 slice of cheddar
    5 saltine crackers
    1 small appleProcessed with VSCOcam with f2 presetHow I did it :
    I substituted small apple with grapes though I substituted it with pear on day 1. Color up your life, guys. Don’t get stuck on the same menu.
    What I felt :
    It was okay.
  • Lunch
    1 slice of bread or toast
    1 egg (cooked or however you like)Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetHow I did it :
    I made scrambled egg because I had made omelette and hard boiled egg in the past 2 days. I also added a little bit of spices too like pepper and salt. I can’t live without seasoning.
    What I felt :
    It was delicious.
  • Dinner
    1 cup of tuna
    1/2 banana
    1 cup of vanilla ice creamProcessed with VSCOcam with f2 presetHow I did it :
    I substituted tuna with chicken like I did on day 1. I also ran out of vanilla ice cream, so I added strawberry ice cream in it.
    What I felt :
    It was delicious because I met vanilla ice cream.

This diet method is well-known as military diet and that’s how I did my military diet. It was kinda bad in the first day, especially in the breakfast menu. But day by day, especially on day 2, I started getting used to it. In day 4, I’ve successfully lost 5 pounds. But however, I have to do this continuity to lose more weight. You can do this every week with 4 days off each week. It’s all about habit, I liked having snacks and eating sweet foods but as you can see in the military diet menu, they have less sweet and salty foods. And I think that’s why they let you eat vanilla ice cream at night because human’s body needs sugar. And brain can’t work entirely without sugar, people who don’t consume sugar, they tend to feel tired when they think.

If you need any questions, feel free to comment below. Good luck with your diet, have a great day 🙂

Additional Make-Up by MAKE OVER

beauty, Latest Posts

Hello Beauties!

So, I just got some additional make-up from MAKE OVER. I heard it is Indonesian brand. So this is basically the first time I use Indonesian brand for cosmetics. I bought liquid color lip, liquid eye liner and eye shadow. So let’s check it out one by one.

GLAM DIVA Liquid Color Lip

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

The first time I noticed this liquid lip color, I fell in love with the look of it. It looks glamour and fabulous.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

It smells like fondant you usually smell in cupcakes. When I apply it on my lips, it feels like the liquid sticks to my lips immediately and I could still smell fondant from my nose. It looks glossy and the color looks perfectly bright and very girly. It either suits for an event or day out.

Liquid Eye Liner

I finally moved on to liquid eye liner. I’ve been using pencil eye liner by NYX. This liquid eye liner is very easy to use and when the sharp brush touches the eyelid, it looks tidy and the color is sharply black.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

The picture above shows the inside of liquid eye liner by MAKE OVER. I like wearing eye liner because it makes my eyes look more alive and to camouflage my black eye bags though I still have to wear concealer.

Indian Summer Eye Shadow

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

I was actually looking for eye shadow which also suits for my prom make-up. So I decided to choose Indian Summer gradation which has girly gradation and also because I’ll be wearing red wine dress for prom.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

It has 3 gradation of red as you can see above. I’ve applied it on my eyelids once and it perfectly suits with my skin tone. I’m not sure if this eye shadow is water proof but after I had washed my face with water without using make-up remover, the eye shadow still appeared on my eyelids though it wasn’t as thick as the first time I applied it.

There’s still more make-up brands I’ll review on my blog. It doesn’t matter what make-up brand you’re using, it’s about how you apply it. Have a great day, beauties 🙂

Get That Christian Grey Look at Prom 2015 (for Guys)

fashion, Latest Posts

This handsome young billionaire from Fifty Shades of Grey (by E.L James) always successfully makes women fall for him with his neat look.

He never flirts.
He never sleeps with anyone.
He never tries to get someone’s attention.
And romance is not his thing,
Just a professional dominant.

Talk less but earn more. That’s Christian Grey. What I mean by ‘earn’ is earning attention by doing nothing. I got some tips for you guys to get that Christian Grey look at Prom. Here you go,

1. Wear Suit and Tie Neatly

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

Jamie Dornan has a great posture and all suits he wears always look good on him. How to get a great body posture? That’s easy, by standing straight up, you have improved your body posture. And for more, do a lot of exercises before prom and eat food with less salt or low calories.

2. Clean and Shining Shoes
Besides neat suit, you have to make sure that you’re wearing formal shoes. Not sneakers or any casual shoes. You’re going to a prom not a garden party. I have some shoes suggestions for your inspiration. And you also can purchase it through the link which is provided beside the shoe’s price.

3. Make That Impressive Gaze

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset
Good looking, smells good, neat haircut, perfectly shaved beard and you’re physically done! Exactly the same as Christian Grey in your own version. But there’s one more thing, steal some adorable acts from Christian Grey like making impressive gaze. Well, though he is not doing it on purpose but people will see it like it comes natural from you . For example,

     You’re in a crowded room at a prom and talking to your friends, then you see your Anastasia Steele laughing with their friends. Don’t come near her, just stay and relax. Stare at her and make sure that her eyes will glance over you. How to tell if she will do that? That’s easy, look at her body language. If any of her body part points at you, you win if not you lose. Remember, don’t stare at her with I’m-gonna-fuck-you look. Just stare at her calmly and YES! She glances over you! Mostly, girls will do it twice to make sure that the person she noticed is really staring at her. Then YEAP! You two stare each other, give her a polite smile. If you two still staring each other, don’t act like Indian couples on TV Show, come near her and say Hi!

4. Make an Accidental Touch

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

Accidental touch is dope if it happens with the person you like. If you’re lucky, it might lead you to another step which is greeting or more. I’ll give you one strategy to get your Anastasia Steele touch you,

     You’re going to take two cups of drink in the corner of the room because you notice her walking towards it. You have to get the drinks after her and make sure she’s exactly 1 meter behind you. Get the drinks, turn around, see her, walk towards her but DO NOT walk too straight to her, walk slightly to the side of her and “Ouch!” says her. “Oh, I’m sorry I didn’t mean to do that”. It’s perfectly working if the girl you are crashing into is an open minded person. After that, give her a drink but make sure you don’t drop the drinks on her dress or she will hate you forever.

5. All Checks, Do the Touch Thing

Processed with VSCOcam

You’re now safe! You’ve got the Christian Grey look and you’ve got your Anastasia Steele. But there’s one thing you haven’t done yet. The real touch thing! You’re dominant, don’t be afraid to touch her. But remember, you don’t touch anyone else except the one you have decided to keep. Girls like their hair get stroked and when guy touches her hand because they always think it fits perfectly. Though Christian Grey is not humorous, you can do your typical funny things to her.

In this article, I don’t mean you have to change yourself to be Christian Grey. However, you certainly have someone who loves as who you are, not as Christian Grey. Girls only like Christian Grey in their fantasy and only loves you in reality. Have a great prom! 🙂
