10 Random Facts and FOTD

A lot of bloggers did this tag ages ago, I'm very late on the bandwagon! I'm always hesitant to write about personal things because I think people won't really care. In the end, I decided to post my Random Facts because I blog for myself and this is also a lifestyle blog. Plus, whenever bloggers like Lau (from Noire Dame) or Jennie (from Sail Boat) write personal posts I really enjoy reading them. Anyways, here they are... :)
My makeup above: MAC Cranberry and MUFE 162 on the eyes, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil in Zero, Tarina Tarantino Fleur de Lash Mascara, MAC Empire Blush, MAC Velvet Teddy Lipstick.
Random Facts about Me
01. I've never seen snow (in person) in my life. This December will be my first time and I'm so thrilled about it!

02. The last book I read was The Hobbit. One of my favorite authors is Kurt Vonnegut.

03. In case anyone wondered about my ethnicity, my mother is Puerto Rican and my father is Venezuelan.

04. So naturally I speak Spanish as well.

05. I was studying engineering but recently switched majors (to physics). I'm still trying to figure out how my passion for beauty will fit into my life in the future.

Beauty Related Facts
06. I love to put a ton of mascara on my bottom lashes.

07. I always tend to gravitate towards peach shades (blushes and lipsticks).

08. I don't like to wear lip gloss.

09. I love false lashes but I still find them so hard to put on.

10. I used to be anti-foundation up until 3 years ago. I just didn't "get" it.

Bonus fact: In the pictures above I have a papercut on my right eyelid, can you spot it? I still have it and it hurts to put makeup on.

  4. OMG! I only started to wear foundation like 4 years ago and sometimes I am like... what is that?! ;) That's why I was so excited for BB creams and my hopes were dashed when I saw what western consumers get in their BB creams compared to Asian ones. ;)

    Great post, I love to read some unique stuff about bloggers - physics - WOW! X

  7. How did you manage to get a papercut on your eyelid? i bet it is painful when putting on and removing make-up. MAC cranberry is definitely a gorgeous shade and i would love to add it to my MAC eyeshadow collection. This reminds me that i need to purchase my MAC palette soon~ I love their new design where you can see all the different shades :D

    Thanks for sharing your facts and your FOTD~
    Have a lovely day <3

  8. Cranberry looks absolutely lovely! Ouch on the paper cut :P Yeah, I'm a nerd, and so I really don't know how my love for beauty will fit in my life. I'm taking this one step at a time, but for now I think I'll keep it low-key and small. But for what it's worth, whether you become a physicist or if you end up blogging for a living, as long as it's what *you* want to do, regardless of all the negativity you might be facing, then go for it.

  11. Ouch, how'd you get a paper cut there?! I tend to lean towards peachy shades in terms of lipstick and blush, too. And it seems like I still have to "get" foundation :P

  13. Ooh, Cranberry looks so nice on you! And I always enjoy reading 'fun facts' posts. I'm definitely also someone who gravitates towards peachy tones, but I can't relate to the never seeing snow! As a Canadian, it's pretty unheard of ;) Exciting that you'll be in a snowy locale this December!

  20. I love reading this kind of posts because I can get to know the blogger better and develop a more personal relationship and become even more interested in what they blog about. Needless to say you look gorgeous in the photos, love that intense eye on you with the black on the inner rims and the purplish eyeshadow, definitely an amazing look for brown-eyed gals ^^
    Thanks a lot for the mention Coco! You're such a sweetheart ♥ xx

    PS Hope that cut heals soon!

    So excited you'll get to see snow this year! I loovee the snow, can't get enough :)

  28. I don't get the appeal of lipglosses either. I think you should major in whatever you enjoy, unless you want a career in the hard sciences/math, in which case you are limited. I am sure blogging will help you figure out how to incorporate makeup artistry in your life, and may provide ample opportunities down the road.

  29. You've never seen snow! Omg! I'm so tired of snow! Sometimes I forget when I last saw the sun! Haha!

  31. I feel the same way you do but I know some people still read them. I drafted mine God knows how long ago already and still haven't finished it, lol. Eyelid would be the most unlikely place I would spot a paper cut. I still can't find it. Snow annoys me. We get too much where I live. I can't wait till spring!

  45. I have to say I love personal posts, namely because it's a way for the blogger to connect to followers, in my opinion at least. Bloggers may not feel the same.

    Curious though, how on earth did you get a paper cut on your eye? :D

  50. It is refreshing to hear that even a pro like yourself has a hard time putting on falsies. I think your lower lashes always look great, and now I know why!

    It was really nice to learn more about you, your heritage, and some of your interests. I'm glad you were brave enough to get a little personal. I always love learning more about the bloggers I follow.
