The 5 faces tag

The 5 faces tag
Hey there Beauties! :ii:
It’s been over a week since my last blog entry but I hope you forgive me! Thank you for all the darling comments on the bento and the sketches! Really, it means a lot to me and I’m so glad you feel positive about them.
Right now I’m on the train to I’ve arrived in Zermatt, a lovely winter sports resort right next to the beautiful and well-known Matterhorn.
I will update you with some impressions in a later entry~

Let’s move on to the main reason for this post, namely the ‘Five faces tag‘ that has been going around on several blogs. Lovely Noora :hoshi: tagged me (to be precise, I asked her to) over a month ago but I never had the time and patience to take pictures!
As it says in the name, it’s about posting five pictures of your face with different expressions. :etone: I’m actually quite picky when it comes to taking pictures of my face especially when it’s Silvankun because I can’t really concentrate on what I’m doing anymore. :jupp: So selcas are a good alternative.

1. Pouty 2. Duckie 3. umm? 4. Nyah, nyah!

After several attempts of taking pictures of my face in the bath room I finally found the perfect place: the fitting room!!! Have you ever noticed how good the lighting is in there? I felt like in a professional photo booth. :tongue: Probably you already knew but I think it’s perfect for taking pictures of your face or outfit. I spent friday with ‘some’ ( actually, I can’t remember when I last went on such a shopping spree…) shopping in Konstanz so I had the opportunity to take some decently lighted pictures while trying on all the different things.
Can’t wait to wear all the lovely new pieces but for now I’m stuck with chunky jumpers and wool tights and snuggled up in a blanket on the couch while outside it’s snowing. Sounds cozy eh? :miam:
But here’s a little sneak peek of the F21 order from a week ago. The ware has already arrived! it’s amazing how fast they shipped it.

The swiss dotted dress fits perfectly but the beetle dress is a little tight.. and the color doesn’t really suits me.

So…. since I didn’t want to flood my instagram account with my bath room selca pics I decided to post some of them here. Noora :blinkheart: posted pictures of her bare face and I think that really brave in a world of false eyelasheshes, circle lenses and photoshop. I then actually checked out the other five bloggers before her who did this tag and they all seem to have taken pictures without or only a little makeup. Well I’m am an aesthetician and couldn’t bear having totally plain pictures of myself on the internet but to at least show a little bit of self-esteem (for this is ultimately a ‘campaign for self esteem’) here my nomakeup bath room selcas which I took while staying in Italy two weeks ago.

Of course I had to play with filters to make them at least a little bit aesthetic :klimper:

If you wonder why there are only four pictures although it’s called the five faces tag and well that’s because umm… first of all because of the layout (I wanted to show large images and not thumbnail-sized) and five is just not the perfect number for adjusting them. And second, because one of the other bloggers also posted only four and four is good enough. :totorosmile:

Here are the rules:
:sprout: Post FIVE FACES of yourself – different expressions, different situations, different moods..
:sprout: Tag five friends
:sprout: Link back to the person who tagged you
:sprout: Have fun!

I tag Gretch :ichikeki: , Nic nic :lipstick: , Lou :on: , Mei :baburukeki: and Bella :bling: because I love their beautiful faces!

I hope I didn’t bore you with all the face pics but at least there’s a little clothing mixed in as well. :catexclam:
We arrived two days ago but we haven’t seen the majestic Matterhorn yet because its shrouded in snowy clouds but as soon as the mountain shows its face I will post the pics on insta! feel free to follow me, I’ll be posting many pictures of my snowboarding and the breathtaking scenery in the coming days.

    Ah, I love Forever 21. They always come out with the cutest clothes and accessories. I hope you post a picture of yourself wearing the black dress. I’m curious to see how it looks because THAT IS RIDICOLOUOUSLY (I CAN’T SPELL IT) CUTE.

  8. You look so cute in all Five faces picture :D It’s interesting how you mentioned the fitting room…I actually like taking pictures IN front of the fitting room lol

    I cant totally relate to cropping or cutting out pictures to fit into a layout :) I hope you had fun at the Matterhorn (not sure if you saw it yet, time differences confuses me).

  9. These photos are all so cute! I love the idea of five faces, although I’m not sure I have five expressions that would be good enough to share :)
