LOOK: Simple Back to School Look, New Hair, and Jewelry Storage/Display Option!

Hi everyone! This is my very simple 5-minute face. I wore it on the first day back to uni. Very simple, yet understated! People kept commenting on how nice my eyes looked, and I think its the subtle shimmer I put on my eyelids. Well, keep reading to see what I used!

I also thought of a new storage option for my necklaces! I used to have so many before, but I just selected a few special pieces and the rest I gave away. Keep reading for that at the end of the post too!

MAC MSF Natural in Medium Plus & Medium Dark
MAC Pearl cream colour base - highlight
MAC Select Moisturecover concealer in NW20 (undereyes) and NC30 (spots)

MAC Bare Study paint pot (shimmery champagne, on lid)
Urban Decay Bourbon liner (upper lash line)
L'oreal Double Extension Mascara with Serum Inside Primer
Maybelline Collosal Volume mascara
MAC Spiked brow pencil

Cherry chapstick! ♥

I just realised this was my first post with my new hair! Well its just an updated version of my old one. I love how big and curly it is lol. What do you think? ♥

This necklace was given to me by one of my mom's Dermatologists-in-training. I love her so much! She's the big sister I've always wanted lol. It's from Accessorize in the Philippines. ♥

~ ~ And what do a few thumbtacks + a notice board make? A necklace display board!

I bought these ladybug tacks in one of the stationery shops in Davao City (National Book Store), and they look so cute! But of course you can use any. Just push them in, but not fully, leaving a bit of the metal for you to hang your chain on. I used one tack for the finer chained necklaces, and for this chunky one I used two. Now I love how I can see all my necklaces, and be able to grab them on-the-go! ♥

I hope you enjoyed my look and this jewelry storage idea!

What do you think?? ♥


  1. Your hair looks gorgeous and the necklace looks amazing :)

  2. @graphology- Thank you so much xx

  3. Would you recommend the brow pencil? I've been wanting to try it for a while :) xoxo

  4. @peachykeen- Yes I definitely recommend the brow pencil. I was on the fence about buying it for a while, and then I got it as a gift. It gives me such a cleaner-looking brow compared to using a brush and brown eyeshadow! And its much easier & quicker to use. Its one of those twist-up types (but won't twist down, yeah its kinda weird) so there's no fuss with sharpening. I'm sure cheaper drugstore brow pencils could work too, but I'm very comfortable with this one from MAC and I'll definitely repurchase when I run out! :) xx
