Remember what keeps you happy

Hello everyone,
sorry for disappearing for a month from this blog..
Kinda busy with works lately, and got time to write up again here on this blog.
I miss my writing, so here I am now at almost 1 a.m typing in front of my lovely laptop listening to Afrojack - Ten Feet Tall, one of my favorite song in current few months.
Well I'll write this blog with few more language, so it will be more "friendly". lol

So, as you could read above,
Remember what keeps you happy.
Really, do you ever remember things that make you happy even in simplest way?
I do (not really I remember everything tho).

But, I just know the moment something makes me smile, I guess I am happy.
Well maybe a little.
For example, when you got a delivery package in front of your doorhouse from a shop, when you bought something online.
It's like "Oh finally *with smile*" nah I did that.
Or maybe when... someone special texted you "Hi."
*BOOM* I know you're smiling that moment. hahahahahaha

Don't count your happiness just when you got something expensive.
Yes I know that everyone lovessss expensive things.
But it is more precious if you got something that had a meaning of it.
For example, oh you got a branded bags because it's your first ever authentic bag that you bought with your own money *your job-money*, not because it's your parents money or bla bla bla.

Pastinya kamu merasa PUAS meski bakal ada pikiran OMG tabunganku berkurang banyak blah blah blah, BUT kamu bakal bener2 jaga itu barang because you know itu hasil kerja kamu sendiri, lain hal kalau pemberian dr ortu, palingan berapa lama uda bosen keleussss. (well happen to me LOL)

I won't count how much I spent to be happy.
In fact, real happiness can't be bought with money right.
Those flowers that blooms inside your heart, in the most simplest way.
Nah I am sorry that I sounds too cheesy lah.

Happiness is when.... you had something that makes you realize that Life is much more beautiful to be happy for, maybe a job you had, bestfriends that you love (and maybe if they love you back), someone that maybe makes you realize that reality is finally much more better than your dreams. Though I haven't met that "someone". LOL
Romantis dikit boleh lah ya :D

Nah, sekarang buntu nih mau ngomong apaan.
Intinya nih ya, bahagia itu simple, saat hati dan pikiran kamu udah "plong" meskipun beban berat masih ada, but you know what you had to do..
Deal with it, life goes on, and you moved on, bukan berarti elu LUPAIN, mau lu hapus foto, mau lu delete contact, yg namanya MEMORY itu STAY FOREVER, mana bisa lupa coy, bisa sih kalo lo ga stuck in one place that had thousand memories and you  moved to another country or maybe another city. Good if you had that chance.
Kecuali kalo lo AMNESIA, baru tuh lu bisa bilang move on, galau? inget masalah lu sebelum amnesia aja boro2 boo. *lol*

Life is much more easier to worry less alias WOLES aja bro,
asal tau mana yg baik dan buruk, and SET YOUR LIMITS!
Udah tua sob, kurang-kurangin nyusahin orang apalagi diri sendiri.
Kurang-kurangin main2, nyakitin hati orang.
Ati-ati deh karma itu ada loh, you got what you've done.

Nah lho bingung kan sama ini kata2, jelasnya aja sih ibaratnya nih ya..
"Kalo lo kasih orang lain tai, suatu saat lu dikasih tai juga sama orang lain.
Kalo lo kasih rezeki ke orang lain, nanti lu juga bakal dapet rezeki juga."
Gitu aja muter terus coy, ga susah-susah amat sih.
Nah kalo lo di jahatin orang, ga usah dibales, emang sih LORO ATI BRO, tapi inget...
nanti juga yg jahatin elu dijahatin sama orang lain, apalagi kalo lu dijahatin sama org yg lu sayang pake bingittt, ntar juga doi dijahatin sama orang yg doi sayang pake bingittt.
Bisa jadi lebih parah (bukan doain sih, but that's exactly what I know for sure, cuz it happened to me once, well maybe twice or more than that. NAH jd curcol kan gueh.)
Makanya lain kali jangan baper, jadi galau kan lo.
And here's one of my fave quote for you guys, and be sure to remember....


"Karma's only a BITCH if YOU ARE."


So that was the end of this post, this was kind of random post I guess.. 
Well maybe I'll post some of my makeup look on the next blog.
Got some endorsements that I like to post on this blog.

Stay tune!!!

thanks for capturing, I am giggling! xD

Being a makeup artist

Hello everyone,
so this was my very first time post where I want to share about my life as a makeup artist for almost past 2 years, starting from late 2013.
Really, this is the first time I talk about my job, not about portfolio or whatever.
As you know I've been posted my portfolio in other post.
And now let me share to you my thoughts.

If you see someone other than me who's having the same job, you barely think that our JOB is kind of fun and easy. YES I admit it's FUN, but not as easy as you could say. The fun part is you get satisfaction of dolling up someone, make them prettier, but the difficult part is when your clients had too much favor to ask (not in a bad way fyi). Okay let me use an Indonesian next to make it easier.

When I still in junior high, I always wanted to be a fashion designer.
I love drawing, from the beginning, i love art!
Waktu itu sih masih kecil ya aku, cuma udah suka aja gambar2 mewarnai, my mom used to had a textile shop back when I still unborn. Jadi dia masih simpan buku contoh2 model baju, celana, rok, atau apapun itu. And I used to coloring her book because it's already unused.
Since then, aku suka gambar entah itu orang2an, ataupun model baju. I know I'm not a pro, but i loveeee it. I always dreamed that someday i will had my own labels & wearing my own designs.

Tapi seiring berjalannya waktu, keinginan untuk jadi designer juga sedikit demi sedikit berkurang, but still masih aja suka gambar dimanapun itu, pernah waktu kelas 9 senior high, it's mathematics, aku selalu duduk di bangku paling belakang, karena aku bukan type orang yg suka matematika, I always draw anything on my text book, or my note book. Ga sengaja guru pengajarku melihat, dia marah dan melempar penghapus papan tulis kearah mejaku, spontan aku kaget. HAHAHAHA
Aku bukan type orang yg suka mendengarkan pelajaran. I hate that tho.

Okay back to topic, so as I grow older, I was thinking about any career that's not too difficult to do.
Tidak pernah aku berpikir bakal jadi makeup artist seperti sekarang ini, suerrrr deh.
Jangankan jadi makeup artist, yang namanya duku sekolah ga pernah mau dikasih tanggung jawab tugas apapun itu.
But now? look at me,
Sekarang dilatih untuk bertanggung jawab dihari penting klien!!
Bukan hal yang mudah, mengingat aku bukan orang yang suka bangun pagi, disuruh ini itu, bla bla bla..

This JOB change me, well not whole me, but a big part of me.
Aku tidak pernah berpikir ingin menjadi orang yang dikenal semua orang (setidaknya sudah mulai dikenal publik untuk saat ini), dulu aku anti-social, bukan org yg pendiam sih. Cuma sulit untuk bisa membaur dengan banyak orang, mostly strangers. And dulu... I am kind of racist. 

Why did I started to get to know makeup?
First of all, I love makeup. I had tons of makeup before I had this job.
Dan salah satu alasan mengapa aku mulai sedikit rajin untuk mau belajar lagi, untuk merintis karir, adalah untuk menunjukkan pada seseorang kalau aku bisa, I thank every moment, momen saat diinjak-injak, diperolok, direndahkan, because I am JOBLESS after graduated from high school and just spending my time to spend my parent's money.
And thankyou for you (you know who you are), sudah membuka mata dan pikiran untuk aku bisa lebih maju, seperti sekarang ini meskipun aku belum  bisa dibilang sukses (sukses untuk aku means I can buy a home, well my own home, or my own car). Mungkin kalau ga ada kamu, yg motivasi aku, yg ejek2 aku, well.. ga ada aku yg sekarang. So thankyou, for the good & the bad part you give for me. Even I could say that it's more bad part you give. haha :)

Beberapa dari kalian mungkin yg sudah pernah makeup di aku, pasti heran kenapa kalau nge-job, ga pernah bawa koper makeup yg ada lampu2nya, seperti MUA lain kan. Well it's simple, aku ga mau ribet bawa2 barang banyak, apalagi kalau harus pindah dr lokasi 1 ke lokasi 2 dan seterusnya..
You know how tiring it is to pack and unpack, and I am afraid to broke all my makeup stuffs in makeup case. OH imagine that case is so heavy, bahkan sebelum di isi perlatan makeup bla bla bla..
I know it sounds not so professional, YES I know lah.
But it's not about how I carry my makeup with case or not, it's all about the result.
Emang kalau bawa koper makeup, hasil makeup'nya bakal langsung jadi bagus?
Memang sih kadang butuh lighting yang cukup, beberapa hotel atau rumah tidak mempunyai pencahayaan yang bagus. I admit that.

And also other things that will ruin our mood as a makeup artist itu saat client (maaf) sedikit2 komentar, ini beda itu beda dll. Bukan mau aku bersifat sensi, tapi tolong lah hargai usaha kami MUA ini yang masih belum selesai kerja, aku juga ga mungkin dong buat alis kamu kanan kiri beda, atau bulu mata kanan dan kiri beda. Tidak ada kata asal-asalan buat aku dlm memoles wajah orang, karena hasil yang aku buat itu juga untuk keuntungan aku sendiri, untuk promosi di instagram, kalau hasilnya ga okay masa mau dipromosiin sih. So I tried to do my best to makeover all of my clients.

Banyak orang yang pasti bertanya, pakai produk apa sih, awet ga, bla bla bla..
Tenang ajaaa, semua produk yg aku pakai buat merias kamu itu juga produk2 yang aku pakai kalo dandan, bukan melebih-lebihkan atau apa ya, kalau kamu lihat hasil foto dan minta dirias persis seperti yang kamu tunjukin fotonya, I WILL. But in condition, kalau2 ga sama persis pun pasti ada sebabnya..
1. Bentuk mata tiap orang berbeda jadi impossible kalo kamu minta sama persis, kan kita jg cocokin bentuk muka kamu dan mata kamu, jadi ga sembarangan aja buat tp hasilnya NOOOOO
2. Kondisi kulit, kunci dari flawless makeup itu ya dari kulit yang sehat (bukan bermaksud menghina ya), if you see my makeup is flawless it's because I make sure that my skin is not broken. I had combination skin which is dry to normal, not so oily. Aku ga bisa bilang bakal sulap muka kamu jadi flawless (kalau kondisi kulit wajah kamu *maaf* kasar dan berlubang-lubang), but at least I try to cover it a little bit. Please, merawat kulit terutama wajah itu penting! :)
3. Pricelist aku BUKAN diutamakan semata2 pakai barang2 makeup yg bermerk, tau ga sih.. ga semua makeup yg bermerk itu BAGUS buat kulit, kondisi masing2 orang berbeda yah, kalo aku sih jujur aja.. ga terlalu cocok pakai yanng namanya branded makeup like chanel. Entah kandungan makeupnya terlalu keras atau kult aku yg sensitif.
Konteks disini adalah saya menjual JASA bukan menjual MERK, sekali lagi saya perjelas yah.
JASA bukan MERK sisss :)

I met a lot of different face & character in past 2 years being a freelance MUA.
entah dr segi kata2nya waktu booking makeup, gimana cara mereka merespon, dan tidak jarang mereka yang sudah dijawab akan perihal pricelist bilang.. "tinggi juga ya harganya" hahaha.. Well, there's a lot of MUA who had more high pricelist than me lho just so you know..
So far thank GOD it went well, meskipun ada 1 atau 2 client (mantan client) yang perlakuannya tidak menyenangkan atau tidak mengerti etika berjualan jasa (maaf kalau ada yg tersinggung).
Sebagai contoh nih, semisal kamu punya 1 client yg booking untuk acara seventeen/engagement, tapi situasinya dia ga pernah makeup di kamu, otomatis kan kamu minta DP untuk acara yg dia booking.
Then suatu hari, jauh sebelum hari H, dia booking kamu untuk party biasa gitu, otomatis kamu kan ga mungkin minta DP lagi cuz dia sudah ada appointment lagi kan udah percaya ajaa.
Then setelah selesai makeup party itu (yah itung2 dia buat trial makeup gitu), dia blg transfer aja pembayaran yg party makeup, ya udah aku OK aja toh percaya gitu lho.
The next day, kamu dpt text dr si client itu kalo dia masih mau pikir2 lagi kalau mau pakai jasa kamu buat hari pentingnya itu, dan yg kemarin party makeup itu emg belum di transfer dan minta bisa ga dipotong aja dr uang DP yg next appointment (kan beda acara beda price nih ya pastinya) dan sisa uangnya kita ambil aja soalnya dia yg batalin.

NAH, the problem is.. kalau bookingnya beda appointment payment nya juga beda dong, masa disamain gitu aja. yg namanya kalo kita jual jasa dan kerjaan kita selesai kan mustinya di lunasin dulu. Appointment selanjutnya tuh lain cerita gitu. Contoh nih ya misal kamu beli TV di toko 1, kamu DP dulu soalnya barangnya masi kosong di counter cabang yg kamu datengin itu, trus the next day kamu mau beli player atau kamera di toko itu lagi, kamu blg potong aja dr DP TV kemarin soalnya kamu batal mau ambil TV itu. HELLOO mana bisa kan ya..  yg namanya DP lain barang, kalo km batalin otomatis hangus donggg.. Bukan kita mau komersil nih, cuma logikanya ya yg masuk akal gitu. Kalo main batal2 pesen TV gitu pdhl udah diorderin yg rugi tokonya kan, apalagi kalo TV yg puluhan juta, belum tentu jg tuh TV bakal laku lagi.

Tapi karena udah ga mau ribut & lagian pasti nih client ga akan balik lagi ke kamu, ya udah deh ga usah panjang2 urusannya, bilangin gini aja.. "harusnya ya ga boleh gitu, tapi ya udah lah. Thx"
Kan ga salah kita MUA kalo bikin info supaya ga kejadian lagi hal yang kyk gini dikemudian hari, ehh si client ini entah tersinggung atau gimana, tanggepinnya sinis kasih info lagi lewat msg, "uangnya udah aku transfer yg kemarin. lain kali please be nice to people. bla bla bla.."
Anjirrr, aku kan udah blg gapapa, emg salah kalo infoin ke org lain yg bakalan jd calon client biar ga kejadian kyk begitu lagi. Ya udah ga banyak omong aku bales aja "thx", kan kita ga bilang minta si client suruh transfer. Ya udahlah toh ga bakal balik, buat apa panjang lebar mau jelasin juga yg namanya udah salah ngartiin mau gimana lagi. Ya ga sih?


Suka duka jadi makeup artist yah gitulah.
Banyak saingan, entah dr sesama makeup artist, atau dr yg lain..
Kalo aku sih ya don't care, sportif aja kalo kerja sis, makeup itu ga bisa dipaksain, cocok2an sama selera masing2 orang. Jadi kalo lu tanya bagus ga sih di dia, bla bla bla.. Ya lu coba aja, kan selera, ga bisa ngomong.. Bagus di kita belum tentu bagus di dia ya kann.. =)

Well, I guess that's enough for now..
I wanna thank all of my generous clients for choosing me as your makeup artist, I am so sorry if I do or said something wrong, this was just my own opinion, so no hard feeling yaa :)

Shoes-zilla!

Hello everyone,
It's MAY already, oh time did flies so fast right?
OMG so long didn't catch up with you guys since my last post (well I do post once but I deleted it because of personal reason).

So today I'm not gonna talk about my life, well I know it's been really hard lately for me to keep move on with my life.

Nah, like you've seen on my instagram (well if you followed me), I used to post an OOTD kind of pic, well I know I'm not a fashion blogger, just doing an OOTD for fun.
And most of my pic shown from head to toe.

I kinda obsessed with a lot of shoes, yes I'm a shoes-zilla! lol

So here's some of my kind-of-fail OOTD post :p
If you recognize, I wear different kind of shoes on each photos, if you find it two or three I wore the same shoes, well it means that shoes were my fave!



 found this boots and guess how much is the price :p *SO SO SO CHEAP!!!*

I need a break from life

So I guess I was writing this post in current drunk condition.
I am so sorry, but this is the most terrible moment ever in my life,
Can't help but I think I;m going crazy by now.

Five minutes ago I was in my bathroom and burn an old picture of someone who means the world to me, for real, it hurts, IT HURTS SO DEEP that I can't help myself to not burst into tears.
And thank you for LIKING that burning picture post, wasn't expect you to like it anyway.
Remember the last time you (or maybe someone else) burn a picture tho?

It was the most difficult 3 years of my life where I holding on to something that deep in my heart I know it wasn't real but i let it slip anyway.
Too young, too dumb to realize the truth.
What's "I will always love you bella?"
FUCK.
I don't know that if one day I will surely believe that kind of sentences came from someone else other than you,
YOU JUST DON'T KNOW HOW HURT I AM.
Thanks for treating me as a game. as an option tho.
Thanks for saying, "Kan bisa berteman to."
OKAY.
THIS WASN'T FRIEND SUPPOSED TO BE DUDE.

If you asked me how am I doing?
I'm doing GOOD. Fuckin' good that I can't even feel how good it is! WOHOO.

And if now God's willing & asking me, I just wanna tell Him that I am tired, so so so so fuckin' tired, I know kalau hidup ini penuh cobaan, tapi bukan cobaan yang berturut seperti ini, I needed some time. I need a break, maybe a break from life, I am just too tired. SO FUCKIN' TIRED.

I wish I could just end up my life here, but I think that's stupid.
There's so many people maybe not around me right now feel the same way that I feel right now.
It's just me that I know, get this fuckin' problems.

I know that karma's does exist.
But I just want to know,
Salah apa aku bisa dpt cobaan kyk gini?
Dosa apa aku diperlakuin kyk gini?
That's all.

I guess since this was the last post before I sober, from  now on..
You're just another story I can't tell anymore.
Good luck & have a good awesome fuckin life out of here.
I'm gonna go on with my life & bring out the most best of me sooner or later.

Please do ignore any harsh words coming out while I'm not sane.
K. BYE.

Paul, you will be missed

Hello everyone,
as you already know that the IT movie is now HIT our hometown cinemas.
What else?
It's The Fast & Furious 7!!!!
OH it's the last movie of Paul Walker as Brian O'Connor :(
It was awesome movie ever, I cried on the end of the movie which is the last goodbye, or farewell you may say.







Oh god that bright smile, he's an angel :')





I know you're there too with them :')





It's truly an honor to see your last masterpiece,
it's never be a goodbye to family.

And it's because of the music, it touches my heart.
Because I know what goodbye's like. The saddest part is when Dom said :
"I used to say I live my life a quarter mile at a time and I think that's why we were brothers - because you did too. No matter where you are in this world, whether it's a quarter mile away or half way across the world. The most important thing in life will always be the people in this room, right here, right now. Salute mi familia. You'll always be with me. And you'll always be my brother."

Oh my god, I swear I hate goodbyes. :'(
But now you're in the safe place, somewhat beautiful, and good to know that you're home.
Farewell Mr.Brian O'Connor.. be happy with Mia :')
Rest in peace Paul Walker..
You will truly be missed!

Fresh New Start

Hello everyone,
oh um about the title.. I'm just confuse to pick any title, as you already know that I just got my new haircut on Friday. and freaking LOVE it.
Lots of my friends asked me WHY did I cut my hair so short. Easy. I'm just got boring with long hair, as you know that I love experiments especially with my hair. One thing I haven't experiments yet is to dying my hair to ash, or maybe ombre.

So, here's my new haircut!!
I got my haircut at Shinjuku Hairmake by Audid (the owner itself).

After haircut 


After styling (by Audid)
 Styled by myself
Only blowdry 
Only blowdry

Love it or not?
Oh I got those kind of hairstyle from here..
Dude I'm a fan! See her instagram, I love her style, her makeup, and her hair.. Oh maybe I was inpired by Shailene Woodley too in Insurgent. LOL!



So, you want to see the before-after pic of my hair transformations?
Here it is.. :')




YES I am a little bit upset.. Well, it's my first short haircut in current 10 years having a long hair.
Oh it's been so long since the last time.
But I love it, I look fresh really. And it doesn't take much time to styled it, and to rinse it. hahaha :)

Well some of my friends said maybe that's just me wanted to have a new life after all.
Maybe yes.
Couldn't be more agree with that statement tho.
It's been almost 3 years, I promised myself 2 years ago (well in the end of 2013 I guess) that I have to let go of what makes me sad. But I guess I'm just holding on too much.

Well that's not what this post is meant about. I'll stop here. Haha.

Oh and if you're interested to get your haircut by ko Audid just come by his place at Klampis Jaya Square 24-25 or book your appointment first by call : 031-5916163 / 031-5916164 or Line: shinjukuhairmake.

And this is not sponsored post FYI.
I blogged about this because I am 100% guarantee that his service is great!
I can never trust any hairdresser other than him. :D
Thankyou ko!
