Moulin Rogue Inspired with NYX Glitter

I was going for the "hot mess" look burlesque look. I covered my eyes with NYX glitter powder in crystal, the colors came from NYX ultra pearl Mania in Purple and Lilac. It looked really pretty in person but unfortunately the camera flash doesn't do it justice :(

  5. you are beautiful as always and i love the "hot mess" look! ^_^ I think that you should move on - at least you wont have regrets about i never got to model. ^_^ At least you lived it and know that you can move on.

    OH and i totally feel you on the whole "being asian" and "being disowned" LOL *hugs*

  7. That's a tough decision to make but I completely understand...when the timing's just not right, it changes everything. You are gorgeous whether or not you have the title model next to your name :) Whatever you decide, I know it'll all work out for the best :)

    LOL, my nails were just painted regularly - OPI directly on my own nails. I have no idea why they popped off like fake nails. Ive never done fake nails - always concerned about the glue :)

  8. Looking fuckin smokin' as usual Julie (; EFF the industry. I took this ridiculously expensive course and that's the first thing they told me -- you're too short. Well SORRY all they wanna promote is tall skinny bitches! So while the instructors fawend over all the tall girls, I went thru the whole damn thing and didn't get ish out of it. Worst experience. /end rant

    Well whatever your decision, you're still gorgeous and you've proved that height is just a dumb label invented by the industry! =)

  9. I admire you for pursuing your dreams even if they didn't turn out how you envisioned.. I don't like this "you're beautiful BUT" deal. The fashion/modeling industry is still very discriminating.. I hope you will accomplish you next set of goals. I'm writing a post soon about "power girls," and you are definitely one!

  12. Girl, do what you want to do. Don't give up! Or maybe do something related to modelling and fashion - there are so many other careers out there!
    Love the look, I want to take part aswell but I don't think I'll show full body shots, I don't wanna give nobody no nightmares LOL

  13. Definitely; I feel as though being in the model world again would only reinforce what you learned the first time!

  14. tough decision on modeling but if you've done it before and you feel like you didn't have a good outcome of it, which brought you to your life today,then don't do it again cuz it might bring you to regretting it. like you said, rejecting the interview is a closure for you to move on. speaking of moving on, you look GOREGOUS with all your bling! good luck on the contest!

  15. what a great pictures!! u sure can be a model!! great entry too, as always. goodluck!

  16. Wow. You look so incredible. Great photos. You are definitely a stunner. Cheers!

  17. That's weird... I thought being short was "in" nowadays in modeling... at least that's what I thought from watching ANTM.
    Hey, have u tried out for Canada's next top model? You should! If that show is still on... I haven't watched in a long time...
    I think you should still go for it, if it's really what you want to do. Sigh...we are at such a tough age...having to choose between what we want to do, and what we should do...
    Anyway, life sucks, can't wait to be old so I can just sit on my ass all day, eating and staring at a wall ;P

    P.S. go to new york in the summer...not winter :S

  18. Hot look, chick! :)

    Mmmm I never really thought about modeling. lol. Probably cuz I'd probably never get hired anyways! bahaha! (>_<) Eh, I'd rather be working with the computer nerds. haha :P

    Good luck in whatever you decide :)

  19. Julieee, omo omo...you're soooo pretty and sexy!! I wont let my hubby sees all these pics!! hahahahaa jk...love your dress too, hotness!!
    hmm..I sorta know what are you talking about..I mean, I'm not a model or anything but I have been in a similar situation so i can relate to you pretty much..
    anyway, you should open a model agency for asian models that are being snubbed out because of that 2inches difference!!

  25. Gorgeous photos. I defintiely see the burlesque you're channeling!

    Height shouldn't be an issue if you're just doing photoshoots and catalogues though, right? Maybe you should consider working behind the lens as opposed to in front of it? I could imagine your experiences would benefit organizing and planning a shoot or campaign instead of just being the face of it. It's probably also way more fulfilling. I plan TV and print campaigns at work and I know that it's more fun to actually call the shots than be the one sitting around for hours waiting for instructions.

  26. you're so gorgeous! if they didn't sign you just because of height then shame on them, they're missing out!

    ReplyDelete
  27. That's awful about the height it really is crap. I love the burlesque fashion :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Julie! That made me so curious, how tall are you?

    I think it'd be great you joined ANTM! Their latest season was on petite models. I'd be squealing the whole time if you went on air! hehehe~ Wait, you're Canadian right? Are you eligible? If you're not then just ignore my ramblings!!!

  29. I've always wanted to do modeling, but next to my 5'8 1/2" 17 yr. old cousin, they'd never give me the time of day, lol. After modeling, I've always wanted to be a makeup artist though. I wonder how that would go, haha. You know, you would be lovely as creative director or something along the lines. I can really see you doing behind the scenes work as your attention to detail is fab.

    You look beautiful! I definitely love the third picture. You look fierce Julie! I'll pay you for the blossom necklace now, but I want you to send the necklace to me when you return back from holidays or in January. Because right now the US P.O sucks and its too busy. There's been a lot of missing pakcages lately so I'd rather wait until jan. for you to ship the item. Is that ok?

    Sorry for the long post!

  30. oh lala sexy!!!!

    Modeling is a tough industry in general, just my opinion. You stated many good facts about it too.

    Modeling will never work for me since I'm petite and under 5'3" and I don't have the body as well. LOL! Not that I ever wanted to do modeling. I do luv fashion and actually wanted to become a fashion designer, but I can draw and work a sewing machine at all. That wouldn't work in the end as well.

    I just posted an update about my store. I have so many ideas that I don't know where to start. I so need to be more organized atm.

  31. I meant to say I can't* draw and work a sewing machine.

    Lots of love,

  36. HOT SHOOT!!

    And ah, interesting story. Sometimes I feel like I'm the only girl who never wanted to be a model or an actress. I'm way to short anyway though hahahaha.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Beautiful :) I love the look on you! You're very photogenic so I'm not surprised modelling agencies are looking for you ;) Best of luck in what you chose!

    ReplyDelete
  38. julie you are hot! :D I'm not sure if you should go to the modeling agency if you know they will shoot you down for being short again. I mean why even ask you right?!?! Kinda dumb but hey be happy they want you :) and your 2 inches can be covered up with higher heels than the other girls :P

    ReplyDelete
  39. you are so pretty and you should be short and proud haha =] some of the taller models might have the height yet they don't have your cute face! plus, they dont have a career like you do! keep up your fantastic posts i love reading about them!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love the look! Its simply beautiful! Keep up the posts. (:

  41. ah! you're in ottawa too! my goodness haha.

    you're a beaut. moulin rouge is probably one of my favourite movies ever and you would probably fit right in! hah

    I used to complain about being too tall all the time to my mom when I was younger. I still do sometimes lol. I bet you can rock the best kind of heels on any day and still pull it off :).

    ReplyDelete
  42. Hey there,

    Your eyes are gorgeous! :)

    Hmm, that sucks that height matters so much...honestly I think it's one of those things that is put there in place just because that's how it's always been. It doesn't really make any sense. I saw pictures where Avril modeled in, and she's "short" as well, but it doesn't make a difference, she looks beautiful still! You can be a face model too, or have upper body shots. Plus, you're asian, you are tall in the world of asians!!!

    Good luck with that agency, maybe it's something you can do on the side for fun? :) and extra cash. You ARE very photogenic!
