What I’m taking on holiday with me

Currently it is 24 degrees outside which makes me really happy so I thought this would be the best time to write the blog post I have wanted to write about what I’m gonna take on holiday with me. I’m going to visit my home country for two weeks at the end of May. I already know the weather there is presumably gonna be quite hot so I don’t need to take a lot of make up with me cuz they just melt off of my face. However I still like to take some essential make up products to make me look semi okay even when it’s boiling hot outside. So I’m gonna list here all the products that I’m taking on holiday with me…

psx_20180509_1051191989247538.jpg

First one is a brow pencil from Tanya Burr Cosmetics, and it is their Selfie Scuplt in the shade medium. I use this everyday anyway and I feel like if nothing else is done on my face when I do my brows it makes such a difference. So that is something I couldn’t go away without.

I absolutely hate applying foundation to my face when it’s hot outside. It legit just melts form your face within a few hours, leaving you all patchy. Plus just the feeling of chemicals burning into my skin is something I cannot stand. With that said I still like to hide my dark undereyes and red spots if I have any, so I will take a concealer with me. But I absolutely try and use it to the minimum. I will take my trusty MUR concealer that will give me enough coverage and will be long lasting on my skin.

psx_20180509_105241248549835.jpg

The only thing I actually am bothered with is my eyes. I will not apply eyeshadow, again it will melt off, but cannot go without a mascara. I will purchase a big sized Benefit Roller Lash as I have just run out on my mini, and it’s cheaper at the airport to buy. I love this mascara and it will be so pretty on my lashes. With that said I will also take my another essential eye make up product, the Rimmel Exaggerate Eyeliner in black which stays put on my tightline and doesn’t run down under my eyes.

psx_20180509_104740676230748.jpg

psx_20180509_1049331393724828.jpg

When I’m going out in the evening I will put something on my cheeks just to give them a little somethin’ somethin’. I really like to use the cheek illuminators from Tanya Burr Cosmetics. I will use Holiday Happiness as a blush and Forever Summer as a highlighter. I think they will be perfect and just enough with my minimalist holiday make up look.

So that is all the make up I will be taking with me. I cannot wait for the two week holiday, to be off from work and I will go through some big changes too which makes me very excited too. Hope you enjoyed this blog post. What are your go to make up bits to take on holiday with you?

Until next time,

Fave make up bits 2017

First of all I would like to wish all of you a Happy New Year! I will join to everyone who says ‘ I can’t believe that 2017 is gone and it’s 2018!’ . To be honest it wasn’t my fave year ever, but with blogging I think I was happy with my journey. It was all about experimenting, trying to find out how I can fit into this blogging world. I realised I don’t want to put pressure on myself, I just want to blog because I like to talk about make up and beauty and girly things. And since that is what I like to do I couldn’t miss an opportunity to collect all my fave beauty bits from 2017 and share them with you. These are deffo my fave posts to read at all times, so lets get into it.

psx_20180107_1512071582379531.jpg

psx_20180107_1515221380682731.jpg

I love eye shadows. Next to mascara they are my fave make up items, so it was actually really hard to choose my fave. Not gonna lie I almost always use Tanya Burr Cosmetics eye shadows and I love them. I used this palette ( Enchanted dream ) a lot this last year, the shades are so pretty and pigmented, can create and easy day look or a smokey evening look too. This was definitely my fave eye shadow palette of this last year.

psx_20180107_1519091921817128.jpg

I definitely wanted to include a mascara, but it was soooo hard to choose just one, but nonetheless I managed. When I heard that this Lash Paradise mascara from L’Oreal was supposed to a dupe for the Better than sex mascara from Too Faced, it intrigued me instantly. It gives you full lashes, a bit clumpy, but I don’t really mind. It is not too extreme, so perfect for everyday wear. I wore it everyday for my holiday and I have to say it is the perfect mascara to wear for a no make up makeup look.

psx_20180107_1526221489780943.jpg

I am a huge fan of the Porefessionals primer by Benefit, however it is a bit pricey, so I decided to look for a cheaper option from the drugstore. I have to stay I still prefer the Porefessionals, but this primer ( Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser by Maybelline )  is also really good, and cheaper. It has a clear colour to it, and the similar texture as the Porefessionals and it does the job. Hides my giant pores on my face. I would definitely recommend it if you’re looking for good drugstore primer.

psx_20180107_1522041632624239.jpg

I don’t own a lot of blushes. I never have. Just always had a few to choose from and I just never ventured into trying out lots of blushes. That hasn’t really changed, and for most of last year I was using this NYX blush. It is in the shade baby blush, and you need the tiniest amount as it is very pigmented, but looks beautiful on the skin. I prefer pink blushes anyway and this complements my pale skin perfectly.

psx_20180107_1523311572890649.jpg

 

psx_20180107_151708595379178.jpg

Another fave product for the cheeks is this Cheek Illuminator by Tanya Burr Cosmetics. Also has a pink undertone, creamy formula, which works well even on top of powder. It is not glittery and gives you a nice and pretty shine.

psx_20180107_1521021253887455.jpg

psx_20180107_1513501220368239.jpg

Lastly it is lip product, cuz I do own many many lippies. Again was hard to choose, but I chose my fave shade from the Matte me up lip paints from BarryM. This was their 35th anniversary limited edition lipkit and I’m happy I got it. It is a perfect dark pink shade lip. Wears easy on the lips, dries down to matte and lasts for hours.

So these were my fave finds for 2017, hope you liked reading about it and don’t forget to share your fave bits in the comments!

Have a nice day!

Wearing Tanya Burr’s Midnight Smoulder palette / FOTD

Even though I have had this palette for a year I only wore it a couple of times, but each time I loved it so much! Blue is actually my fave colour and I do think it suits my eyes as well, so I promised myself to wear it more. So this was the make up I was wearing the other day, and I liked how it turned out so I decided to do a quick little post on it. In my opinion, this make up look would be good for the Christmas party season too, if you like to go rather eye heavy than lip.

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.

PSX_20171008_145146

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

In love with the Selfie Story collection

I got a very exciting package in the post today and it was a delivery from Feelunique. I know it contained the new Tanya Burr Cosmetics collection, the Selfie Story collection and I am just so excited to share my opinion on it with you.

I usually don’t go anywhere without wearing mascara and a liner, but at least a mascara. So I was just very happy that two of my absolute fave make up items were in this collection and I finally get to try them out.

PSX_20171003_115612

PSX_20171003_115445

But let’s talk about the brow pencil, Selfie Scuplt, first as I am sort of typing this blog post as I’m doing my make up so I can get my true first impression written down.

I actually really like the shape of the brow pencil. I chose the shade medium and it is a perfect fit for my browns. I like the rectangular shape and it is easy to use and really shapes your brows well. I like how I can move it around as I’m putting it on and getting different angles of the product. Just seems to be working perfectly.

PSX_20171003_115335

 

PSX_20171003_115154

The next item I’m trying out is the Selfie Flick eyeliner. I’ve watched Tanya’s videos when she was talking about this new products and when I saw her using the eyeliner I got very intrigued. I can say now already it is so flippin’ good! She said it is easier to apply eyeliner with this one and I have to say she was right. I have been applying liqued eyeliner to my eyes for years and years so I have no trouble with it, but even I can tell that with this one it’s just way easier. I like how thin the brush is because sometimes I really just want a thin line to be there in my lashline. Also thanks to the thin brush doing a winged look is so easy. I usually like felt tip liner for a winged look but this one works even better for that purpose. On top of that it is really black, which sometimes can be an issue with eyeliners. I think I have found my new fave eyeliner overall, if you haven’t guessed that already.

PSX_20171003_115058

So last but by no means least is my new love the Selfie Lash. It is the prettiest mascara I have tried in a long time. It gives long voluminous lashes. It doesn’t clamp up at all and I really like the shape of the wand and the bristles, I feel like they coat every single eyelash. I think it gives very nice big lashes but not too overdramatic ones, but natural ones. Which I think look better. The formula is wet but not too wet that you can’t really use it and you need to wait for it to dry out a little as with some other mascaras. It feels like the perfect consistency and it works perfectly for the first time. I am really really impressed amd also so so happy with it.

So yeah as the title suggests I am in love with this collection. Even though I just put my make up on I can’t wait to remove it and apply it again tomorrow. I do honestly think these products stand out amongst all the other drugstore brands and I appreciate all the effort and work Tanya and her team put into these products because the results are just fab. Congrats Tanya Burr Cosmetics! I can’t say enough good things!

And lastly here’s a picture of me with my ready make up having used all the goodies mentioned above.

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. 😉

PSX_20170813_185456

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.

PSX_20170813_185354

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.

PSX_20170813_185554

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.

PSX_20170813_184845

PSX_20170813_184653

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

Tanya Burr’s Chasing The Sun collection picks

I can begin the post again by saying how excited I was to get some new Tanya Burr Cosmetics products, because it’s just true. I love the brand and all the products are so good quality and I’m always ready for more!

So let’s start with the products this collection consist of. This collection has two contour sticks, three highlighters and three lip balms. I chose one of each to get but I can already tell, I’m going to go back and order the other highlighters as well.

PSX_20170708_015627-2

 

PSX_20170708_015855-2

Peonies Please Highlighter

I absolutely love pink toned highlighters in general, so I had to pick this one! I like how pigmented the product is, gives a real base for the shimmer in it. Goes on smoothly onto the skin to give the most beautiful highlight. I’d also use it on top of the blush if you really want to go into town on a night out for example. I need to mention how much I also like the packaging which looks quite luxurious. Simply just pretty to look at. Love love love!

PSX_20170708_020156-2

Contour Stick in light/medium

My go to contour powder for months has been the one from Tanya’s Beautifully Defined palette. Ever since I got at Christmas I’ve been using it non stop. So no surprise that this contour stick is definitely up there with that powder. I never really use creamy products on my face, find them to hard to work with sometimes, but not this one! It is a matte a shade, easy to blend in and the colour is perfect for fair skin. Time to switch up my powder for this one!

PSX_20170708_020013

 

Strawberry Milkshake lip balm

I basically live in lip balms. If I had to to take 3 things to a deserted island lip balm would honestly be one of them. Yes. It is that important. First of all I like how creamy it is for a lip balm. The colour is not too heavy on this one which makes it perfect for wearing it really just any time. My favourite thing about it that it sits on my lips for quite a long time. I love the fact that I don’t need to reapply it every ten minutes. Smells amazing too! Who wouldn’t wanna put on some strawberry milkshake flavoured lip balm honestly?

And here is the swatch of the highlighter and the contour stick:

I hope you liked this review of the products I chose to purchase from this collection. If you tried them as well comment me what you think!

Have a nice day/night! xx

Tanya Burr’s Natural Ambiance collection review

I can’t even tell you how much I love Tanya Burr Cosmetics. I think she does a wonderful job with all her products, they are good quality and really affordable. So when I heard she was going to release another collection I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it.

The collection consist of two eye shadow palettes and two new lipstick. Both are on the natural side regarding colors.

I’m always excited to get new eye shadow and I love me a good lippie. 🤗

PSX_20170520_183612

The lipsticks are such gorge shades and a perfect match for the palettes. Here is the swatch for them both Bear Hug and Sunday walk. ( again I love the names of the products ).

PSX_20170520_182141

They are creamy and have satin finishes as the other lipstick do too. They are not drying on the lips. Also unfortunately they don’t have a good staying power either as like a liquid lipstick, Personally I don’t mind reapplying it throughout the day.

PSX_20170520_183335

PSX_20170520_182951

Now let’s talk about the palettes. Beautiful shades. I don’t really do brave eye make up, not anymore anyway, so I always opt for natural colours. These two palettes have all the natural shades you could wish for. Matte colour and shimmery shades as well.

The first palette is filled with rose gold shades that just scream summer, and it has a matching name to it, My Paradise. The shades are pigmented, not glittery and just look gorgeous on the eyes paired with loads of mascara.

I was also excited for a bit more coloured eye shadow palette and I’ve always liked a natural green eye shadow, so happy to own this beautiful palette, My Escape. Again it is perfect for creating a natural eye look but still add a bit more colour to it.

Here are the swatches of the shades from both palette:

I hope you liked this review and enjoy this new collection as much as I do. 🙂

Hope you have a great day! x

Quick and easy Valentine’s day make up

I knooow that Valentine’s day is either hated or loved, but you can still find yourself just wrapped around with all the cute stuff that comes out around this time of the year. Not to mention all the make up and make up looks. I don’t particularly hate or love Valentine’s day, but since I have a boyfriend , I do want to look pretty for that day. So I though I’d come up with a quick and easy look, that’s perfect for Valentine’s day, but can be worn basically whenever you want to.

In my opinion Valentine’s day just screams red lipstick. It is an essential bit of the whole make up look. And because you’re creating a bold lip, you need to keep your eyes as simple as possible. What I had in my mind, was a more classy, ’50 look, but let me walk you through exactly how to achieve this look.

wp-1486896972539.jpg

wp-1486889315407.jpg

wp-1486889189552.jpg

First thing first is primer. You want your make up to last throughout the whole evening so primer is very important, I use the Benefit Porefessionals primer, as it is one of the best primer out there. It will give you a flawless base to put your make up on. For foundation, I use the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation in the shade light porcelain ( yes I am that pale! ). To make under eyes circle disappear or for any blemishes I use everyone’s favourite concealer, the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer in the shade fair. It gives you such a nice coverage without being too thick on the skin. Then I set everything with the Rimmel Stay Matte powder in the shade transparent.

After this I go onto my eyes and I will finish my face later. First I’m applying NYX Proof it! eye shadow primer, and while it sets, I’ll do my brows. I get my brows tinted, but I still like to fill them in and for that I use the Natural Collection eye shadow in the shade crushed walnut. After this I just brush them into shape, and that’s my eyebrows done. If you want you can set it with a gel, mine just usually doesn’t get messy, so I don’t need it. For my eyes I’m only applying a white, barely-able-to-see eye shadow, and that is from the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette in the shade white chocolate. Just to give my eyes some cleanness. After discovering tight lining I can’t do my make up without it. I take my Soap and Glory eyeliner pencil and line my upper lash line. This will give you fuller looking lashes. And finally I use my L’oreal Super Liner eyeliner to create a winged liner, and I’m not going shy with it 😉 To finish off the eye make up I use the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara.

Now it’s time to finish off my face. For contouring I use the Benefit Hoola bronzer. For blush I take the Tanya Burr Cosmetics Rosy Cheek palette and apply the shade pretty peony. This is a nice pinky shade, not too strong, and it has a golden sheen to it, which I think looks pretty with the red lip look. To finish off my face I use Benefit High Beam to get the most gorgeous highlight (ever!).

Moving on to the lip, I’ll take my Rimmel Exaggerate lip liner and line my lips. Then I apply the Tanya Burr Cosmetics lipstick in the shade Big Kiss. A perfect red to wear on Valentine’s day.

Last but not least, to set everything I’m going to use The Body Shop Vitamin E hydrating face mist. I’ve recently seen it on YouTube that this mist can also be used as a setting spray, and it really does a wonderful job with keeping everything together and on your face all day.

I hope you enjoyed reading this make up look tutorial and that you recreate it!

Have a happy Valentine’s Day!

xoxo

January Favourites

January always feels like the longest month of the year. Buuut if is sooo god for trying out new bits and pieces, especially if you got yourself a handful of goodies in the January sales 😉 Not to mention all the Christmas presents that that I had a lot of time trying out and using in the month of January. SO here are ALL the products I loved in these long five weeks of January.

wp-1486461738252.jpg

My first favorite of the month is the Tanya Burr Cosmetics Beautifully Defined palette (which I believe you can still get from the Feelunique website). I generally loved Tanya’s Christmas collection, and was very excited about the palettes especially. This one has gorgeous eye shadows in it, a highlighter, a liquid highlighter and a bronzer. I wanted to have this palette to be honest because of the liquid highlighter but actually ended up liking the bronzer a lot more. It is a nice caramel shade, I find it goes very well with my pale skin. Easy to blend, and looks very natural on the face. Also in love with the eye shadows, the pigmentation is on point as always. They’re just pretty every day colours.

wp-1486462296958.jpg

My second favourite is another palette of Tanya’s. It was the first one I had my eye on, when she released the collection. It is the Pretty Unstoppable palette. It has four eye shadows, a highlighter, a blusher, and a matte mini lipstick. I think this is the palette that had the most to offer in term of quantity of products and price. Really like the eye shadows, easy to create an everyday look with them. But with the darker shades it is easy to do a more of a night out look as well. Reminds me of Tanya’s other eye shadow palettes.

wp-1486461552898.jpg

For Christmas I got the long-wanted Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick in the shade Queen B. I really, really, really like the formula and the shade of this lipstick. This is the only Too Faced Melted lipstick I own, but after using this I definitely want to try more. It glides on so easily on the lips, the pigmentation is just beautiful, literally one swipe is enough to get the full effect. It is not too drying on the lips, more like you can’t even feel like you’re wearing anything on your lips. Win, win!

wp-1486461895061.jpg

A new discovery this month is the Maybelline the Falshies Push Up mascara. I did another blog post on my fave mascaras where I talk about the reasons why I like this one, so I’ll leave you a link for it, if you would like to read it.

 https://perfectlyimperfectbeautyonline.com/2017/01/22/3-fave-mascaras/

wp-1486462192801.jpg

This is not a product I purchased in January to tell you the truth, but I definitely rediscovered it in my collection, and found myself reaching for it every day. I like pink shade blushes the most. I just think they suit my pale complexion nicely. This blush is very pigmented, so little bit goes a long way. It also has a tiny bit of glitter in it, so if you don’t like that avoid this product, but when applied to the face it is not glittery at all, just gives you a nice sheen, which is always nice with blushes.

What have been your faves in January?

xoxo
