Hey guys, Luvvy here. Today's post will be about...



I was inspired to make this post... by myself... forever alone. No jk but seriously. I pierced my second piercings on my ears today.... by myself. Woohoo!!!

I pierced it with a needle and this was taken directly after I pierced it, so its very hard to see.... but look closely!!!
After this experience, I DO NOT recommend piercing your ears at home...just terrible... it hurts sooo much. There's three popping noises as you insert the needle through your ear... and before it comes out the back is the worst part. It hurts so bad.
You can pierce it by yourself by taking a needle, a soft, piercable object like a wine cork or something, a silver or gold earring, an ice pack or a numbing gel, and alcohol. 
You take the alcohol and set the needle in it for minimum 10 seconds, and while that's going on you can wash your hands~
Then take the alcohol and a cotton swab and clean your ear.
Take a pen and draw a dot where you want your ear hole to be...
Then take the needle and slowly stick it through your ear. Don't freak out if there are popping noises....... then take it out from the cork at the back of your ear and slide it through. Take your earring and slide it through, then take earring solution or salt water to clean it everyday. Make sure to twist them.
I might just get it re-done at a professional... its swelling up like crazy.

Going out to meet a friend~

Hey guys!!! So today my friend from Holland who I haven't seen for a year came to America for a short while... I missed her so freaking much, you don't understand I was like crying the whole day. So this was my outfit when I went to see her:

Yes, I camwhored alot....
We ate at Winberie's with a couple other of our friends and we went to Red Mango for a healthy dessert afterwards. At Winberie's I had a Chicken Marsala with Mushrooms, cucumbers, lemons, and mashed potatoes. Yummy! I didn't camwhore there... I didn't turn on my phone because my friends and I were so busy laughing at jokes, but we did take pictures on the way home, I'll upload one at the end. I started doing switch leaps across the road and I felt like I was out of my body and watching myself do these was like a deja vu as well. That was weird. Anyway, we arrived at my friend's house and we used iPads, iPhones, androids, etc for fun and we recreated each other on Hair Salon 2. I swear you should try it it actually kills time. Anyway, here's an after the fact picture (Guntor!!!)

Yessss I look totally beat. I was like on a sugar rush today, that's why. Anyway, here's some photos with her. She's really short...and her feet are like a size 2. BTW her face is so small I think I might photo shop my shapeless ugly face to vaguely match hers wth. Why are Netherlands people faces so petite.

I have no idea why its upside down... I can't change it its normal on my computer though lol

Warm and Cool Skin Tones

Do you have a warm skin tone? A cool skin tone? Neutral? How can you tell? You can tell by seeing if you have a pinkish undertone or a yellowish. Pinkish is a cool, and yellowish is warm. Still can't tell? Well, here are some clues to seeing if you're either- if you have majority of warm toned but some cool, that doesn't make you half! It's what you have the majority of ;D

On cool toned people:                                 Neutral:                     On warm toned people:
You burn instead of tan           You look good in everything...        You tan very easily
You're very pale                                                                            Darker skin color
You can see your veins as blue                                                      Veins are greenish
Pink or rosy undertone                                                                  Golden or apricot undertone
Silver makes you glow                                                                   Gold makes look alive

If you're Asian like me- most likely you'll be a warm toned person. If you are a ginger, most likely you'll be a cool. Here's some tips for the cool people- silver will make you light up the room. In contrast to gold- it'll look like you just put something normal on. Silver- ba-bam! You light up the whole room, and you look like a beauty queen. Try to stick to blue, or even green. A dark emerald, royal or icy blue, rosy pink, silver plums, and just plain white will make you light up the whole room. If you wear a dark emerald dress to prom, you can try putting on a plum eyeshadow and silver accessories. You'll be the Prom Queen of the night! The wrong colors can make the fittest and healthiest people look sickly.

Now for my warm toned friends, here's some straight on facts- you'll look super healthy and alive with gold on. Vibrant, and beautiful. My friends, many times, who are both warm and cool colors, paired their clothes COMPLETELY wrong. I took my friend, who had everything in cool toned colors although she was warm toned, and completely flipped her style around- and the next day people asked her what face products she used XD (not sure how that works though...) anyway, that was a side story. You look best in earthy colors- toss those royal blues, pinks, silvers, and plums into your others bin, and put the following colors in your favorite outfits closet! Wear many oranges, mocha browns, golds, bronzes, peaches, cremes, ivory, earthy green, brick red, etc. Mostly, as you can see, yellow based colors. If you read the cool section and didn't jump down here, if you wear an article of clothing in a mocha brown, do bronze makeup with silver accessories and you can be a Homecoming queen!!!! Take my advice- my friend looked like she had some sort of disease for years until she found her right colors- she looked like the prettiest girl alive after that.

Now, if you can't tell- you either can find out at any makeup counter at Macy's, Neiman Marcus, etc. They will tell you if you're warm or cool- and if they tell you you're neutral- you're a lucky person, because guess what? You've been dressing right all along! You look good in any color- I'm soooo jealous right now. You can wear a rosy pink and look just as gorgeous as if you wear a bronze! You look beautiful in both silver AND gold- don't put any clothes in the don't wear pile! You don't look sickly in any clothing color (unless you are sick that day) and if you are sickly- any color with help brighten you up! You can wear bright pink lipstick to red- beautiful all around. Pair everything and anything- and you'll look beautiful- you're bound to be the next Miss USA.

Good luck everyone! Here's a goodbye from your warm toned friend!

Pore strips~

I made a brief video around 2 months ago about... PORE STRIPS!!! More specifically, BIORE PORE STRIPS!!!! Here is me rocking one last night....
BTW my hair is NOT greasy here. It's just the lighting. Don't be like 'your hair is greasy ching chong' ok? One I'm Korean two I'm not Chinese...haha lol little rant but if any of you were wondering how I did my bunny ear thing with my froggy bandanna (lol froggies) I just lay is and cross it into a triangle...roll it up... then holding it in place, put it under my hair to my forehead and tie it tightly into the bunny style, then push it up to my hair. Anyway, I was wearing glasses here because this was right before I was going to sleep...meaning all my makeups off here... and so you can see my blemishes.... jk I photoshopped them out. Anyway, I took off my glasses, but I was wearing this Biore strip (not sponsored, this is what I really feel) after a Dead sea mud mask. (I'll post how those work later) Anyway, I pasted it on my nose....Waited 10 minutes... and taking both edges, slowly worked it off. (for the full effect, watch the strip from either side and watch dem blackheads come off.... as Michelle Phan and Xiaxue would say, it's...oddly satisfying to see all dem blackheads on that strip- makes you think of three weeks worth of buildup coming all off in 10 minutes. These strips may be a little pricey, so as a upcoming makeup youtuber, I obviously don't have my own solution.... But thank you Michelle Phan for being the best person ever and coming up with how to make your own strips out of regular household items! Go watch~
That's all for today... Two posts! Anyway, this post was uploaded because I felt like I only gave a brief review of them, when they deserve SO MUCH MORE!!!! (I was on a rush... you know how it is when you are in a show.)

NYC Eyeshadow Trio= Equivalent to Revlon Coffee Quad

Today's makeup issssss

I love this eyeshadow! I don't know why- I thought my tastes were a little more expensive. I always loved Sephora eyeshadows, but this time this eyeshadow is- no, not from Revlon, not Maybelline, not Covergirl, not even Rimmel!
New York Color!
I know what you're thinking.... say what? This girl says NYC? This color, central park plums, is amazing. My sister recently desperately tried to find a replacement color for the Coffee Eyeshadow quad that Revlon had discontinued. I, out of my own interests, wanted to help for some strange reason to find an equivalent. She'd tried almost every eyeshadow in drugstore brand and many in the more expensive department. Even if it was her color, it'd be too shimmery, not the right texture, or even not the right color.
This is the closest I could find. As you guys might've noticed, I used this trio in the $20 makeup challenge video I'd posted. Here's a picture of the trio itself

As you can probably tell, I did not follow the palette's initial use. The palette called for The brown as an all over  the lid, the maroon as a crease color, and the pink as a highlighter. I used the maroon for all over my eyes and the brown for my waterline. And I used the pink for a light highlighting over tone, like expected. For those of you who don't know which quad I'm talking about from Revlon, here it is:

It's the 3rd one of the quad. The copperish one. Although my eyeshadow LOOKS 10x darker, since it's NYC it comes up lighter and it isn't as pigmented... I myself have never tried the eyeshadow my sister looks for, but she said my eyeshadow was 'not quite' but that was the first one, and she didn't say, 'not at all.' And it was the first one she grabbed from my room and tried. When she puts it on its a real pretty color though...Anyway, that was today's makeup....Maybe I'll start doing OOTD's. Today I wore a black lace shirt over a white cami and high waisted beige shorts with a dark belt over it... as well as leaving my hair loose, the usual makeup, and 2 inch camel brown wedges from Franco Sarto. (don't buy them...) anyway, try the NYC quad called Central Park Plums, if you're looking for a Coffee Bean replacement from Revlon!
