My Nightly Dreams

My Dream on 1/29/15 wednesday night. I went to sleep after watching marathon of the tv show my sunshine. Didn't study for naplex yet again. My naplex is the coming thurs in a week.

I currently don't have a job, so my sleeping habits have been going out of control. I've been waking up at two in the afternoon and going to sleep at 5 in the morning. Sometimes I sleep 12 hours and sometimes only get 5 hours.

I have realized that I have been getting lots of peculiar vivid dreams that feels almost life like. I wanted to see if my daily life has an effect on what I dream so decided to be posting my dream on my blog from now on.

I read somewhere that people only dream when they have a lack of sleep and the dreams happen when you are almost waking up.

They say that most people don't remember their dreams and if they do, they are lacking lots of sleep. Also most people's dream are in black in white. Only a select few people dream in color. I want to say that I dream in color but when I think hard, I believe my dreams are in black and white.

I have been deciding what blog to post my dreams in but since I feel vanilladreamcream is my personal blog, I have decided to post my dream here instead of in my entertainment/drama review blog @

So now off to my first dream post.

Get it Beauty ep 9 Boy Group Idol Makeup

Korean Boy Group Idol Makeup

We have seen a trend in makeup where boy group are wearing lots of dramatic makeup.

In episode 9 of Get It Beauty, it shows tips on getting makeup that male idols wear.

The most noticeable makeup the guys usually have on is eyeliner. Once you say eyeliner, G-dragon's name comes up.

However there are also lots of other male idols that are known to put on eyeliner such as

Exo's Baek Hyun          Infinite's Sung Gyu           Shinee's Key                 Block B's Zico
In this episode, SPEED were special guest and they demonstrated the eyeliner look on one of the boys. I forgot his name but he looks so cute.

After the makeup, he instantly became cool.

The makeup artist took a chubbier black eyeliner and lined the eyes in the front and end of the eyes, keeping the center unlined. Then blended. Repeated the same underneath the eye.

The second type of makeup they demonstrated was Exo's Xiumin's shading makeup
It was just blending beige eyeshadow and giving her strong eyebrows

Then they demostrated Exo's Baek hyun's burgundy eye makeup

first use a burgundy color under the eye, darker near the ends and gradually getting thinner near the middle.
then use a darker burgundy color to line the eyes and give more contour.
the most important part is gray colored contact lens.

Lastly the most dramatic makeup seen sported by male idols were the vampire makeup seen on Vixx.

The tip here was to tightline the top and bottom eyes entirely with a black liner. Then using a normal flat paintbrush, cut some bristles away so it becomes jagged. Moisten the brush then dip it in black eyeshadow and draw it across the top part of the eye and out. Instant drama.

I don't know about anybody else but I was expecting them to do a blind testing. I basically watch Get It Beauty to see which item they find is the best in their category but for the past two episode, the show didn't reveal any Blind Test. Wish they would bring it back. :)

What boy makeup trend do you think you would try?

For me, I think the burgundy makeup would look pretty nice on me.

Get It Beauty Ep 8 Brides Special

Recap of Tips from Get It Beauty Season 2 Episode 8: Brides Special

The new trend on weddings have changed from large princess like weddings to small close knit weddings.
bridal makeup tips from get it beauty

This episode Lee Hyori's wedding which I though was one of a kind. Another famous person who also held a small scaled wedding was Mark Zuckerberg

Hyori only invited a close group friends. She took all her wedding photos herself and held her wedding at her home. Her honeymoon was a roadtrip around Europe.

To keep up with the trend of small weddings, its fitting to do your own makeup

Wedding Makeup- the makeup artist calls it the fairy makeup

1. use white mascara underneath brown colored mascara- the lighter color makes eye pop
2. use gold eyeshadow. use one shade for the entire makeup.
place one dot in the center of eye
one underneath at end of eye
another on the center of cheeks and then blend out-the  on cheeks looks more brown

Tips for natural wavy hair

1. Pull up your hair into a high ponytail.
2.Then curl your hair.
Putting your hair in a ponytail instead of letting your hair down makes it a lot easier to curl your ahir yourself.

Getting a messy hair bun

1.pull you hair in a high ponytail.
2.Rake your hair up and backwards. 

3.Then pull the top layers a tiny bit out for some volume. 

4.Then braid the hair and hold it at the bottom with an elastic.

5.Then main point. Hold a couple pieces of hair at the bottom and push the rest up until it squishes all up and then wrap the rest into a bun and bobby pin in place.

6.After lightly rub your crown so that its a bit messy.

7. rake your hair up and back and with your hand in place spray hairspray and hold for 2 second. Repeat through the rest of your hair line and this will hold all the tiny hairs in place.

Did you know they sell pure vitamin C powder? I had no idea until this episode. The dermatologist said to mix the vitamin C powder with your normal moisturizer.

Pyramid makeup-

1.Another surprise, the makeup artist dipped her pointed foundation brush into moisturizer , rubbed it in well and then swirled it into her guerlain powder. What!! that's a total no no in my book. Mixing moisture with powder. She said to make sure not to put too much powder on the brush and since she is only highlighting the face lightly, it shouldn't clump that much. By moisturizing your brush first, it makes the powder less powdery and more of a shimmery and glowing feel. She then dabbed the highlighter on her forehead, nose bridge and side of nose. Make sure the highlight on the side of nose does not extend beyond the eye area.

2. using a small brush, place brown shadow near the top lash line. 

3. dust shimmery eyeshadow on the top inner half

4. blend a coral shadow on the entire top lid

5. add highlight to the center, right underneath the brow.

How to prevent tears from ruining your makeup

If your makeup is not waterproof the makeup artist said to cry with your face down so the the tears doesn't drip down your face and will drip directly down to the ground.

I think for this episode it is best to watch the actual video since the pictures does not do justice for how pretty the makeup looks. It is the best natural makeup look.
