My first attempt at a cut crease…

Hiii and welcome back to another blog post! This time I thought I would experiment with something I have never done before. I am usually not too adventurous when it comes to my make up, but I have always liked looks with a cut crease, however I was always too afraid to try it. So I needed to remind myself that make up washes off and it is fun to play around with. Luckily it didn’t turn out horrible so I feel like I am able to share this photos with this cut crease look. Hope you like them!

Here is the list of all the products I used (in order of applying it):

  • NYX Proof it! eye shadow primer
  • Tanya Burr Cosmetics Selfie Sculpt in medium
  • Too Faced Chocolate bar, Salted Caramel, Milk Chocolate, Semi-Sweet in the crease and Marzipan on the lid
  • MUR Define and Conceal concealer in the shade C0.5 to carve out the crease
  • Rimmel Exaggerate black eyeliner to tightline
  • Eyeko Skinny Liquid black eyeliner
  • Benefit Porefessionals Primer
  • Maybelline Superstay Foundation in True Ivory
  • Maybelline Mastercameo colour correcting pen in pink for my under eyes
  • MUR Concealer in 0.5 and C1 for undereyes
  • Rimmel Match Perfection face powder for baking under the eyes
  • Catrice Cosmetics Prime and Fine mattifying powder for my face

  • Miss Sporty Insta Glow Blusher in Shiny Coral
  • Tanya Burr Cosmetics Beautifully Defined palette for highlighter
  • Benefit Roller Last Mascara
  • Charlotte Tilbury Lip liner in Pillowtalk
  • Tanya Burr Cosmetics Birthday Cake lipstick on top

I hope you like this make up look, it is nothing complicated but I think it looks really pretty. I actually sort of regretted adding the winged liner, I think it would look pretty without it. I will definitely create more looks like this and might even try to do a halo eye one day…

Until next time,

My five top beauty products

One of my favourite blog post to read is when people write about their top fave products. When people talk about their absolute fave products I know they have been using them for a long time and they are definitely working. I find myself usually going and giving a try to those products as well, as I like trying out new stuff. So it seemed like a very good idea for my first collaboration with Amy from Everydayamyblog, to share our top five beauty products with you. Here’s the link to her top five beauty faves :

  1. Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette

I’d say if you’re only going to invest one high end eye shadow palette, go for this one. It has every shade you could possibly need from matte shades and shimmery ones. I like natural shades for my eyes most of the time, and you really can’t go wrong with the variety you have in this palette. Perfect for everyday use to a really out there make up look. Not to mention it smells like chocolate which is the biggest bonus to it. (I mean whoever came up with the idea of scented make up was a genius)

  1. Too Faced Melted Matte Liquefied Lipstick

Again, if you’re looking for a high end lippie and you’re not quite sure which one to go for first, and you happen to love matte lipstick, then this one is definitely the one to choose. I absolutely adore this melted lipstick. The formulation is so light yet the pigmentation is on point. It glides on like a lip gloss and dries downs to a matte lipstick. I don’t find it drying on my lips, and it lasts up to several hours. There are a lot of colours to choose from. I have the shade Queen B, but I really can’t wait to try out some new ones, like Cool Girl or Child star.

  1. Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

As I mentioned in one of my previous blog post, I have tried a lot of mascaras from the drugstore and it’s fair to say that this one is the best one I have ever tried. It gives volume and length, both which are very important when it comes to mascaras. It never clumps up on my lashes, and I do like to use a lot of coats, just to get the full effect ;).

  1. Benefit High Beam highlighter

The one make up product I can’t imagine not having in my collection is a good highlighter. Before I found this gem, I used to use powder highlighter, which I still do, but this product is the most beautiful highlighter I have ever seen. It is a liquid highlighter, it has a slight pink undertone, which I love and it is also cool toned, which I find suits better my pale skin. Very easy to blend, I usually use my fingers to pat it onto my cheekbones. I find it last for a really long time and gives your make up a really nice and polished finish.

  1. Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed powder

My last top beauty fave is this powder. I usually don’t really venture out from base make up too much when I have found something that’s working for me so well. So I have been using this product for years basically, and it just works for me perfectly. It’s not too powdery, keeps my make up matte almost all day and doesn’t make my make up look cakey. I use the shade transparent, as I don’t want more colour just something to hold my foundation in place.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post, and make sure you head over to Amy’s blog to read about her beauty faves.

What are your top five make up products, you just can’t live without?

 

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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?
