My First Look

28 July 2011
Finally had the courage to post a look on lookbook.nu. This one's from years ago, though. Just happened to spot it in my old files and thought to give it a go. :) Hopefully, I'd be posting a look from the present soon!

My Top Make Up/Hair Gurus on YouTube

11 July 2011
Ever since YouTube was launched, different tutorials were seen pertaining to various topics such as arts, design and music. But what really interests most girls is make up and hairstyle tutorials. Today I will share with you the list of my favorite gurus on YouTube. (in no particular order)


I first discovered Bubz when I was looking for a Song Hye Kyo make up tutorial. Lindy Tsang, her real name, is a Chinese but grew up in UK. She started using YouTube on August 6, 2007 and has become a sensation since then. With over 740,000 subscribers and 155 million total upload views, Bubz has conquered the world with her talent. She also has a vlog channel and comedy channel which also received ardent following from fans. When she launched her t-shirt line, all products were immediately sold out and was restocked to accommodate more purchases.

Michelle Phan

Michelle has the most subscribers on YouTube at more than 1.4 million. I can say that her videos are the most professional looking. 

Her most popular YouTube video is her Lady Gaga Poker Face Tutorial which received more than 29.2 million views. She is also a spokesperson for Lancome.

Michelle is an alumna of Ringling College of Art and Design and Massachusetts College of Art and Design

Lilith of lilithedarkmoon

Lilithmoon is a YouTuber from France but she speaks English in her tutorials. If you want to learn the basics of hairstyling to the most complicated ones, Lilith will be the best buddy for you. It's amazing how she makes tough hair do's look easy.

Jung Saemmool

Jung Saemmool is a talented make up artist from Seoul, Korea. She is known as makeup to the stars such as Song Hye Kyo, Kim Tae Hee and Lee Hyo Ri. She studied Fine Arts at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, California.

Years ago, I kept seeing pictures of my favorite Korean actress Song Hye Kyo with an unknown make up artist. I kept saying that whoever does Hye Kyo's makeup is very talented since I can see that the make up she has is very light and radiates her beauty. It was only just recently that I found out who this person is. It was such a big surprise when I saw Jung Saemmool's videos on YouTube.

I admire her most because her style is really a work of art. No wonder, she does magnificent paintings too.

Jen of frmheadtotoe

For me, Jen is one of the most beautiful faces on YouTube without makeup. Jen is 100% Korean but she is born in USA. She is a designer and a freelance makeup artist and has been happily married since 2008.

Promise Tamang Phan

Promise is a self-taught but very talented makeup artist. Does Phan ring a bell? She is Michelle Phan's sister-in-law. What caught my attention is Promise's ability to impersonate through make up. For example, look at this Angelina Jolie transformation.

LSS over Kaori Kobayashi

10 July 2011

A few days ago, I've been searching for piano covers of "Nothing's Gonna Change My Love For You" which was sung by Glenn Medeiros. I clicked on one YouTube video and as usual with YouTube, related searches appear on a column at the right hand corner. That is where I saw a video of Kaori Kobayashi's version on saxophone. It was an excerpt from what looked like a concert.

I searched Kaori on Wikipedia and I found out that she is a sensation in the world of saxophone. Here, see for yourself.
