A Quick FOTD and HOTD

Hi all! :") so today, I had a concerto competition (yes yes, I play cello, if you haven't been able to figure that one out just yet...)! I played very well, but since I wasn't able to hear anyone else except the girl who went before me, I guess I'll never know what I was up against! :/ Winners are going to be announced on Tues! I'm so excited/nervous...! I really hope I win! >_<

Anywho! So today, I did have to dress up a bit, since it's an audition. I have to tie up my hair and pin back my bangs (which is NOT attractive whatsoever + the sweat from playing for 15 min straight -.-"). But because I have naturally straight hair, my hair always falls flat when I tie it up--which makes it even more horrendous. So to pizazz up my hair-do today, I just added a bit of texture by using a 1 1/4 inch (32 mm) curling iron without using the clamp. I'll have a detailed post next time about that! It creates waves instead of curls :)

As for make-up... people in the music industry most often tend to be on the older side, and not to mention traditional; so having a caked face and intense eyeliner is going to create the worst possible image of you for them (party animal?). But recently, my acne has been working up again!!!!! T^T so I HAD to wear a full coverage foundation today, and JUST enough eyemakeup to look polished :")
here's the results!

Quite natural lookin` for a caked-face, eh?

My bangs are getting so long!

Like the wavy hair? :3 I'm new to it... it's a completely diff feeling from curly!

Sadly, this is about the only picture I have of a close-up on my face! You can see the eye make-up decently :p

Here's what I have on:
-Lancome Teint Idole Oil-free Foundation
-Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Powder
-MAC Powder Blush in Peaches
-Too Faced Natural Eye Palette
-"Silk Teddy" in crease/inner tear-ducts, "Push-up" on lid, "Erotica" smudged on the lashlines, "Heaven" used as a highlight on browbone
-Lancome Le Crayon Khol in Chataine
-L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Black
-Shiseido Lash Curler
-MAC Blankety (my fav lippy!)

I know this is COMPLETELY random... but I really wanted to share with everyone--If you're not familiar with him, Joshua Bell is an amazing (not to mention good looking!) world-class violinist. I have heard countless people play the same pieces as he does, but none resonates in my heart DAYS after listening to it but Bell's. This particular CD is my favorite one of his; they're the typical stereo-type classical songs, but this is... different. You have to give this a listen. I can have this CD looping ALL day without getting tired of it. Do you guys know what I mean?

And to close this post...

{*fingers crossed} Hope you won your cello competition! I'm sure you sounded amazing.

I don't know what you're talking about.. acne? I don't see anything in your pictures.

I can't wait to read your tutorial. I LOVE how your hair looks. I can never get my hair too look that way. Usually it's too curly or not wavy enough.

Congrats on your first award!! =]

<3 Serena.

Thank you Jinna!!
Your comment on Clinique items totally help.
I was actually debating between the Moisture surge (in pink tin) and the moisturizer I got (Super Defense). I think I will definitely try Moisture Surge once my day moisturizer finishes or something. It sounds great.

<3 Serena.

onni~ I like your make up, I was think that maybe you could teach me how to make up? I have an unequal size of eyes. That's a problem for me.
