I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

Make-Up Day Part 1
My buddy Maicie wanted to learn the know-how’s of pulling off an Afghan look for their Asia and the World class. With the aide of Ate Jael as her teacher and me as one of their “models”, she’s now adept in creating one. Their group was tasked to prepare Afghanistan food, presentation with all the costumes and whatnot. That’s how it goes here in UP Mindanao. Our GE (General Education) subjects are usually the most demanding and stressful ones. Anyway, I don’t have much to say anymore so just let me show you the finished product instead. Voila!
I’m not so sure about what Ate Jael did, but as far as I can remember, she applied Etude House BB Cream on my face before she put on the make-up. She used LA Colors and e.l.f. cream eye liner for my eyes; and Rimmel Tantrum lipstick for my lips. Tantrum is actually Reddish Pink, and my eye make-up is also dark. They looked so light in the photos. Too bad! Everything looked pale because of the bright natural lighting. It was really hot that day, so just bear with it. I’m just not into cosmetics but after this, I think I know what to collect next.
More of our make-up session pictures soon.
