Pinay Curvies: Selfie

Hello Lovelies!!! I hope you all had a great weekend! I'm sad the weekend is over, it was my birthday this past week so I'm kinda sad that its over! Plus its coming to reality that I'm older! ahhh LOL 
So today this post is for the Pinay Curvies Swag October Challenge and it's about a #Selfie! Oh man I wasn't sure if I wanted to do this challenge because I am not part of the selfie generation and I have enough trouble taking pictures by myself for the outfit pictures. So taking a close up picture of myself is another level I'm not that comfortable about doing. But I wanted to support the group and also challenge myself. So here you go! 
  • How did you make your #selfie special?
I think the fact that I took some selfies for this post is pretty special because if it wasn't for this challenge I would have never posted a selfie on this blog because it's just not me. Plus I think I look pretty awkward in my pictures and sorry for my big pimple on my chin, I tried to cover it up with makeup as much as I could. lol Oh and if Helen from "Everyone should Sparkle" reads this I tried to do my makeup like yours and put light eye shadow in the inner parts of my eyes to try to make it stand out. I don't know if I did you justice girl, but I tried. 

  • What's your inspiration for your #selfie?
Well I'm not really sure if I had an inspiration when I took these selfies but I just wanted to put on makeup that I usually wear on a daily basis and I didn't want to go all out because I wasn't going anywhere. But yeah my daily products consists of MAC's studio fix, NYX eyebrow cake powder, Maybelline mascara, and a lip product (This is a Revlon lipstick). But for the selfie I added eyeliner, eyeshadow and blush, which I use a lot too but not on a daily basis. What's your everyday makeup? 

  • What do think of Selfies? Who's your favorite celebrity Selfie? 
So I mentioned how I feel about selfies above and I'm not really a fan because I feel really awkward taking them and I feel like I look awkward too. But I know it's another thing that's in my head that I should get over, but will see! hehe But yeah I don't really know about celebrities and selfies, I follow a lot of them but I don't really have a preference for anyone specific. 

So there you have it my #selfie post! If you want to check out the other girls in the group you can click on the logo on the top! :) 
XOXO ~ Nina ~

  1. Love your make-up! I wear a lot of Rimmel make-up. I'm always sooo tired, and I learned a few years ago about using white in the corners of the eyes. I think it really helps brighten up the face and the eyes themselves.

    I take selfies sometimes, but I don't get the general obsession with them - especially in regards to posting them on the internet.

    You don't look awkward, and don't apologize for the pimple. They happen, and honestly, I didn't even notice it until you mentioned it. I was actually thinking how smooth and clear your complexion was!

    Happy Birthday again!
