Well today was International Manba Day and in honor of this momentous occasion I wanted to dress up in manba, unfortunately my manba wardrobe is sub par since this isn't my usual look. It is a look I like and admire though so what better time to try it out! I applied what I thought was a dark foundation but it shows up much lighter on camera (like most makeup). I might try this look again because I know it takes practice and I feel like I can do much better than this. My real hair wasn't behaving today so I had to slap on a wig, it makes me mad how shiny it is in the flash, but oh well.
I asked my sister if it would be okay if I gave her a manba makeover XD I wanted her look to be just a little downplayed compared to mine since this look is obviously out of the norm for her (as it is for most people) and I wanted her to be comfortable and have fun! It's so hard to take pictures with her though because she's so short and tiny >:O I always have to crouch down about 4 inches.
We aren't dark enough!
Gosh, this is my first attempt at this kind of makeup since...06' (not sure about the exact date of the following picture but it's REALLY old) and I sincerely hope my technique has improved since...oh God XD I was just messing around with Halloween makeup this time so I guess today was my first REAL attempt.
My hair was so short and dark. The thing is, I remember thinking this wasn't very good even at the time...but that didn't stop me taking a pictures of it lmao so go ahead and laugh at it, I know I did. Happy manba day everyone!
Oh yeah, and I made new nails since my last post.
