Firstly, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Styl-Lish readers! Hope everyone is in good spirits and enjoying time with loved ones and friends that bring them joy! 


For the second installation of the West Vs. East make up analysis is the subject of blush, or blusher! Its application can make the cheeks look quite rosy and adds in a little colour as well. In the west, we tend to apply blush to the apples of cheeks,  or hollow of cheek for a throwback 80s style . Its generally done softer to be able to blend and not be so stark. There are also some instances where the blush is a darker bronze colour than a red, orange or pink depending on our skin tone.

In the East, I have noticed that their blush tends to be sweeped almost directly under the eyes than on the apples of the cheek. It also is applied a little on the heavy side, showing off the rosy cheeked look.

Make up fanatics and aficionados tend to apply blush to look sultry and sexy, whereas in the East its done to make the wearer appear more youthful.

Get Your Hustle On!


Photo cred Chicago Now


On my birthday, I got hired at a new part-time job downtown (an old birthday wish)! Though I won't be able to dilly dally as much during the weekends, I can at least get out the house more... even though its to be inside mostly. Its definitely a change of pace for me and I enjoy it so far.

I've met some talented and knowledgeable people and I am surrounded by gorgeousness. Also, I get to see all the Holiday decorations and festive lights after work!
Oh... have you seen the spectacular tree I posted on my ig from the Walnut Room the other day? Check it out! 

The downside.... Being in the Loop makes me want to shop! I'm already eyeing the makeup counters, and clothes shops! Oh no!!

If you can grab a table from the Walnut Room at Macy's, tell me what you enjoyed there! I heard it gets full with reservations!!  
Until next time loves!

Night Fall Gallery Exhibit

Night Fall

The Night Is a Wonderful Place 

Night Fall Gallery


After a long week's work, I found myself at Rotofugi for a macabre-esque gallery opening. I felt at home surrounded by handcrafted moths atop skull halves, stylish soft felt bird skulls adorned with delicate glittering beads housed under glass jars and dark yet humorous sketches and sculptures of plump black crows.

This was the combined worlds of Andrew Bell (New York) and Lana Crook (Chicago), and I was engulfed inside it.



They chatted with me about their work process, enlightening me on how they arrived at their final creations.

I also met Dj. Sean Doe and Mini Marshmellow Man, Marshal too!

Pewdiepie Deleting his Channel?!


Currently trending on Facebook  at around 16thousand people chatting about it, is Famous Youtuber Pewdiepie. Felix, or Pewdiepie, wants to delete his channel...once he hits 50million subscribers due to Youtube and its current habit of deleting a Content Creator's subscribers. He is one of the top earners in Youtube land, and this is certainly shocking to his fans. 

Read more here

He also isn't the only other Youtuber who has noticed the change in subscribers as well, as Unrested has made a video as well about it.


With Youtube changing so much, is it even worth it using it? Or will it just end up being a platform to just upload videos to link and redirect to other places? Or will Youtube step up and fix their glitch?

My Fall Items

Though November is gone, December is here, and Christmas decorations have been up since mid November, I wanted to share some of my favorite Fall items with you!

OUTER 
Lisha gyaru's fall wardrobe items

Other than my vegan leather jacket, this sturdy, military style jacket gave me the edge I love with my (rokku gyaru) style. Usually paired with jeans and short ankle booties, this went perfectly with my aesthetic.

ACCESSORY

Big shades that cover half my face has been a staple in my wardrobe. This pair is from Akira and are different than the other pairs I've worn. The gold nose piece adds a focal point to the shades and give them some glam.

BAG

My crocheted houndstooth bag was one of my go-tos for this past fall. I chose a bold monotone pattern that definately stands out even with the most basic of outfits!

What were some of your fall favorites? I'd love to see and showcase what they are!
