Channeling My Inner Amy Winehouse


Can you imagine an Asian Amy? Before today, I couldn't imagine myself.  I'm a bit drawn towards dressing up in character.  I can see the fun in being an actor or actress.  Many of us have our own style and beauty mark that separate us from the bunch, and Amy certainly left behind more than just her music for us to miss.


The beehive would've been fun to do, but my hair is too short at the moment. Although this style isn't as popular, I think it's really cool.





How I achieved this look:

  • Makeup: Pencil eye-liner used for upper and lower eye-lids and eyebrows
  • Lips: good'ol chapstick
  • Head-wrap: any regular size pillow case; fold into a triangle then tie around the crown of head. Tuck the ends under the wrap.
  • Hair: tied back in a bun,  curl bangs with medium size curling iron.

A song for Amy Winehouse. RIP.

I wish you would step back from that ledge, my friend
You could cut ties with all the lies, that you've been living in
And if you do not want to see me again
I would understand, I would understand

The angry boy, a bit too insane
Icing over a secret pain
You know you don't belong

You're the first to fight
You're way too loud
You're the flash of light on a burial shroud
I know something's wrong

Well, everyone I know has got a reason
To say put the past away

Wish you would step back from that ledge, my friend
You could cut ties with all the lies that you've been living in
And if you do not want to see me again
I would understand, I would understand

And well, he's on the table
And he's gone to code
And I do not think anyone knows
What they are doing here

And your friends have left you
You've been dismissed
[- From :http://www.elyrics.net/read/t/third-eye-blind-lyrics/jumper-lyrics.html -]
I never thought it would come to this
And I, I want you to know

Everyone's got to face down the demons
Maybe today we can put the past away

I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend
You could cut ties with all the lies
That you've been living in and if you do not want to see me again
I would understand, I would understand, I would understand

I would understand
I would understand
Understand

Can you put the past away?
I wish you would step back from that ledge, my friend
I would understand

I wish you would step back from that ledge, my friend
I would understand
I wish you would step back from that ledge, my friend
And I would understand

I wish you would step back from that ledge, my friend
I would understand
I wish you would step back from that ledge, my friend
And I would understand
