Smokey Autumn make up look

First of all, I only wanted to create a natural everyday easy make up look for autumn, however, as I was applying it I felt doing  something a bit more different, so I ended up with a smokey autumn look.I think it’s still perfectly wearable during the daytime too.

Lipstick ready for Autumn

Well as it is already October I thought it was only natural to type up a blog post about my fave lippies for Autumn. So here it is 😊.

As much as Autumn is kind of all about the berry and dark shades I actually like to wear more nude shades as well as the occasional dark shades too. So they’re are both in my faves.

PSX_20171008_145310

The first one that is I really really like for this season is the Maybelline Vivid Matte liquid lipstick in the shade Nude Flush. It gives this perfect pink nude colour to the lips and pretty much goes with every make up look. The only thing is that it doesn’t dry down completely so you feel it being tacky basically throughout the time you’re wearing it, so naturally it does rub off too and it is not long lasting. However it is a very pretty colour and just an absolute must have for every season really.

PSX_20171008_145028

To stay within the natural shades the next lipstick is my other nude fave and it is the Tanya Burr Cosmetics lipstick in the shade Pink Cocoa. This one is a darker pinky nude shade but because it is darker it goes better wih the Autumn theme of make ups. This is really the your-lip-shade-but-better colour. It has a satin finish, definitely not long lasting, not that it claims to be.

To go to a bit darker shade, and to express my love for purple toned lippies, my next fave is from the NYX lingerie lipstick line and it is the shade Embellishment. This one has a different formulation and it feels quite moussey on the lips, but also very light and you can barely feel that it is there. It dries down completely and stays put for hours. One of my fave colours to wear.

To mention some berry shades as well in my faves I have chosen another still-could-be-nude-but-it-is-darker than-that shade and it is from The Body Shop. This liquid lipstick is in the shade Nairobi Camellia. It has a slight berry tone to it, although not too much as it is still quite stuble on the lips. This one dries down matte and last longer than all the ones I mentioned before however it is still not long lasting. But smells really good.

I left the darkest shade of the bunch to last and it is I think also the darkest lippies I own. I actually bought this months ago but waited for Autumn to really use it as I think it is a typical Autumn colour. It is the Barry M Matte Me Up liquid lipstick in the shade Embellish. ( looks like a theme giving these names to the purple lipsticks haha ) It is this dark purple shade which is perfect for nights out I think. However it would be pretty in the daytime too with winged liner and some lashes. It is a lip paint so it is a very wet formula but dries down matte. It stays on for a quite a long time. I really like the shade and just can’t wait to rock it.

So here are all my fave lippies I am wearing mostly in this season. What are your fave Autumn essential lipsticks? xx

My holiday make up

Summer is the time to be a bit lighter with your make up anyway, but when you’re visiting a hot country then the last thing you want basically is to put make up on your face. Some people do it. I can’t stand feeling like the sun is burning all the makeup I have on my face into my skin. I’m pretty sure it is not very healthy either. However there still a little bit of make up that you can do that will make you feel more put together and pretty on your holidays!

PSX_20170813_185030

So this is the make up I wear during the day. For the evening especially if I go out I do wear a bit of make up but not too much. Bronzer, highlighter, eyeliner and of course some eyeshadows. The one I definitely gonna take on holiday is the Tanya Burr Cosmetics my paradise eye palette. With eyeliner make sure you use a waterproof one just in case you get hot and start sweating. 😉

Brows

The one thing I cannot leave anywhere without is filling in my eyebrows. They make me feel put together and my face just looks better when my brows are done even if I have no make up on. The best thing would be to get it tinted before you go on holiday so you don’t have to bother with it, but if you prefer to do it on your own then just go for it. I’d definitely suggest using a gel product to set your brows after you filled them in to make sure they stay put all day and won’t be running down your face.

Concealer

Now I know I said I can’t stand make up burning into your face, but another thing I can’t stand is dark cirlces under my eyes. So I use the tiniest amount of concealer to try and hide them. I’m one of those persons that just has dark undereyes, no matter how much I sleep or the eye creams I use they’re still gonna be a bit dark. Of course if your undereyes are not dark, you can just totally miss this step.

Mascara

Back in my homecountry it is above 30 degrees pretty much all summer, so the only make up item I used to wear was mascara. This is the perfect way to get a no make up make up look. I like to have really bold lashes anyway so when on holiday and that’s the only thing I put on my eyes I don’t hold back, haha. One tip though, use a waterproof eyeliner on the tightline to make your lashes appear fuller.

Lips

Holidays to me scream bright vivid lips. It’s the one time where you can get away with using the brigthest and boldest colour. All the bright pink colours are made for holidays.

So this is all the make up I use on holidays. I only put suncream on my face after my skincare routine and I feel like my skin is always grateful for its little make up free holiday too!

What make up do you like to wear on your holidays? xx

New BarryM nail polish favourites

For their 35th anniversary BarryM released some new nail polishes and I have heard good things about their nail polishes so I decided to get well almost all of them.

I have to say I am really happy with them, with the colour payoff, staying power and of course the price. It meets all your desire for a drugstore brand.

PSX_20170720_124157-4

I have decided not only to get the new nail polishes, I also got a top coat which makes all the difference and is actually working. Just thought I’d mention it. However I completely forgot to take a photo of it, sorry.

The shades I got are Bubblegum, Cashmere, Bespoke, Gold Coast.

PSX_20170720_124501

I use two coats of all of them, and then the top coat which really dries them fast and to be honest I just paint my nails more often because I know I won’t have to wait around hours waiting for them to dry.

Have you tried any of the new shades? Which are your favourites?

BarryM Matte Me Up lip kit review

I was soooo excited when Barry M introduced the new lip kits. As soon as my budget let me I got all three and I’m here to tell you what I think about them.

I don’t own any other lip kits ( especially not the Kylie ones unfortunately) so I can’t compare them to anything else. The one thing that is definitely true that they are cheaper than the Kylie cosmetics ones as they retail for £6.99.

I have mentioned it another blog posts that I’m a sucker for matte lips and Barry M does lip liner so well anyway, these lip kits instantly got my expectation pretty high.

I have to say I wasn’t disappointed. I love all three shades and everything about them.

So the lip kits come in three shades, To Go, Pose and Runway. They contain a lip liner and a matte lip paint. First of all let me talk about the lip liners. As I said Barry M does really good lip liner. They glide on the lips, without pulling it and they are very pigmented. If you want to you can even wear them on their own without the lip paint.

Speaking of the lip paints, they do feel like paint. So light formulation allows you to legit paint your lips with it, even the Too faced matte lipstick don’t glide on that easily as these ones. You get the true colour of the lip paint once you let it dry.

They stay on for soo long, even after eating food, and I had a hard time removing them with a wipe when I was taking photos… so if you want something that will last all day, definitely give these a try, because just like me you won’t be disappointed.
