It never gets easier.....

...to say goodbye. My dear boyfriend is leaving tomorrow at 2:00pm to go back to Miami. He will fly to Boulder, Colorado on the 11th. Unfortunately, I don't finish my classes until 7/13, so I won't be able to see him off at the airport. This time we will be apart for one year. He'll be doing his PhD in Chemical Engineering, and I will finish up my Master in International Business. The longest we've been apart for was a week. ONE WEEK! We racked up $300 each in texting that week (we were young and didn't sign up for unlimited texting). I've been so emotional lately. I'd cry/laugh hysterically all the time. Sigh..... I really hope that we will be able to survive this long distance thing.

Whew, now the depressing stuff is out of the way, let's talk makeup. Since I've been waking up at 6:30am everyday for class, I want my makeup to be as simple as possible. This look is my everyday FOTD as of right now and takes 10 minute max from start to finish.




What I used:

Face:
--MAC Strobe Cream to brighten up my face a little since I went to bed at 5 am
--MAC Face & Body foundation in C3
--Chanel Bronze Universel
--Ben Nye Poudre Lumiere in Banana

Cheeks:
--Ben Nye Autumn Sunset blush
--MAC Soft and Gentle MSF

Eyes:
--Stila smudgepot in Black
--AMP cosmetics in Blue Monday as lower liner/shadow
--Stila kohl eyeliner in Topaz as lower inner rim
--L'oreal Extra Collagen mascara

Lips:
--Nothing in the pics but later added OCC liptar in Melange.

Close ups:


I HHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTTTTEEEEEEEE group projects. They are like death, only worse.


Do I look innocent?


Oh, btw, anyone seen these Limited Edition Oreos?






They are DELICIOUS! Especially the Strawberry milkshake! They are amazing!

Anyway, I need to go spend more time w/ my honey before we say goodbye. :(

Have a great day!
Tao

I had the strawberry ones, but I never got to try them =(

My bf's leaving in a few months for basic training. He'll be gone for almost 6 months, longest we've been apart is 3 days... in the last five years. Sucky part is, I wont even hear from him for the the first six weeks... *sigh*.

Hey Tao,

Don't worry, I'm sure you and your boyfriend's long distance relationship will be fine. My boyfriend and I are currently spending a year apart from each other too because of studies, and this is our 7th month so far. I get to see him again for about a week at the end of the year, and then he goes back for one more year. This year marks our 5th anniversary, and this is also the first time we've been apart for so long -- the longest before this was about 2 months, which I thought was bad but is nothing compared to this of course, lol. For the first few months, all I could think about was how much I missed him, but as the months go by you get used to it -- though I still do miss him on a daily basis, it's just that now I've become a bit more optimistic about it and am just looking forward to seeing him again. The key is to keep in touch regularly, let each other know what's going on and stuff. There may also be times where either one or both of you will be busy with schoolwork and may not have as much time to talk, which is when being understanding plays a big role. Having webcams is great too. The main thing is that if you guys fully trust each other and are committed to making it work, it will! All the best. :)

I totally know what you mean:[ My lover is leaving soon too.

Everything will be fine though. I n the end, it will be worth it!:]

Ms. B said...

Aww hun, it'll be alright in the end, although, I'm not gonna lie, it's gonna be torture while he's gone. It's so funny, you two remind me of my husband and myself when I was still in school. My husband was a chem grad and I was a fashion grad. While I was in school, I had a fashion prof who was married to a chem prof. I guess fashion/business girls attract the chemistry guys huh?

SweetFurr said...

Tao, don't worry about whether the relationship will survive or not, if the relationship has a strong foundation and the love is strong, you'll definitely have a good ending.
My close friend also started dating her bf since high school and they've been together for more than 10 years, although for about 7 years it was long distance--- one in asia while one in the U.S., and this year they are getting married :)

K.C. said...

Aww, I hope your bf and you have a great time tonight. You look great in your pictures and your food pictures are too tempting!

Sue Lynn said...

I truly believe in destiny - if you're fated to be together, you'll get back together even after 10 years. :) Work at the long distance thing, obviously, but don't push too hard, u know? It may cause undue conflict which may be worse :(

love.LY said...

I tried the strawberry oreos and I'm soo glad I hate them! I don't need any more calories.

miemiemie said...

Awww..I know you'll get used to not seeing the bf for a year..I mean,I've been away for 5months and we're like continents apart..at least you can still make calls to each other..i had to pay a lot for my overseas calls to him..be strong dear. I know you both can make it :)

Natgn said...

Aww it'll be okay Tao.. you know what? Before you realize it, the year will have passed by and you will be able to see your honey again =)
And damnnn.. 10 minutes for a full-on face look? You're good o__o

Jamilla Camel said...

You look so cute!

Be sure and use Skye and a webcam and avoid those Oreos!!

Catherine said...

Aww, good luck, hon! If you guys make it - your relationship will be all the stronger for it!

Anonymous said...

Those oreo's look so good. :)
Good Luck with the long distance, I hope everything works out!

I was just curious on youtube I know you get paid for being partner but do you charge for reviews? I know gurus get free products with if fine. I just found this blog about some other gurus and is this a common thing? I feel pretty foolish.

girl, email me if you need to. don't want to say more about my own experience on the blog but we can talk in private.

i love your eye makeup!

Meri L said...

Dont worry, u will make it ;) It happens to me too. I met my bf 2-3 times in a year for 3 years. Even when we are in same country, we meet like ever 1-2 weeks. I dont like to meet my bf too often as I think everybody needs time for themselves =)

Kim said...

awww hope you're feeling better Tao. Yes it's going to be tough for a while but you guys will miss and appreciate each other even more because of the distance!

Love the pop of colour in your FOTD.

dowabie said...

:O Strawberry oreos...I love the color combo ><
and I only have 10 minutes to do my face too...-.-. But on fridays I touch up at morning break and put on more stuff.
but the good news is...harsh schedules tend to make you lose weight :)
you try to do all your homework and stuff and you forget to eat.
I lost 10 lbs because of summer school.

dowabie said...

about your long distance relationship, I'm sure it's going to be fine :). Don't worry and be happy. When you're happy time goes by faster. It's a fact.
proof: the last 15 minutes of a boring class...that lasts for an eternity.
When you're hanging out with an awesome friend 6 hours feels like 6 minutes

I spot those oreo but I try so hard to resist buying them.

I say keep the communication strong, it's not easy but always make time for each other even if apart.

mapple said...

Long distance is hard. Keep communicating and trusting each other is the way to survive. By the way, I like the way you draw your eye ^-^

Janice said...
