Perfect Palette Tag

PPT

One of my readers Farah, suggested I do the Perfect Palette Tag. I have seen this tag before but haven’t really given it much importance, but now I feel I should give it a shot. I do have plenty of palettes however being a make-up junkie nothing I have is enough :).  The tag basically consists of answering the following questions of what I think are my palettes are best for. So keep on reading.

1.Best Packaging

I love the NYX Box of eye-shadows palette, it has most of the colors you can think of in this small sized box. The box is quite sleek and very comfortable to carry around. (Will review this beauty soon, so keep posted 🙂 )

2.Best Color Payoff

I would say the Naked 2 palette, but I have to say the Fraulein 38 Naked palette is amazing for the price I bought it. The color payoff is great, the shadows are very pigment and easy t blend, I have created some great looks with this palette so it deserves some recognition.

3.Most Versatile

The most versatile has to be the E.l.f Marble 100 eyeshadow palette, it has all the colours you desire in one palette and it has a decent colour pay off. It is great to have, especially when your starting our in the make-up world.

4.Best for Traveling

It has to be the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette, beeing that is has all of the nude colours your desire. All of which are packaged into this hard metal thin, that keeps all of the eyeshadows safe, which make it perfect

5.Biggest Regret

I don’t have a biggest regret to be honest, I love and cherish all of my palettes. However I am not to fond of my E.L.F complete the look palette. Having lipsticks in the same palette as you eye-shadows and blushers is not a good idea, because all the powder will get on the lipsticks and you end up wasting a bunch of decent lipstick colours. I do think they should thick of a better packaging solution however it is quite cheep so I shouldn’t really complain.

6.Best Color Names

It has to be the Naked 2 palette, because its the only palette I’ve got with cool names

7.Least Used

They have to be my E.L.F 100 palette. I do use them once in a while mostly when i’m getting ready for work. Yet recently I have to always keep going somewhere else after work, so I use something which has more of staying power.

8. Most Used

I have two palettes one of which is the MUA Undress me too palette which is almost finished (remind me to buy another one ) and the other one has to be the Naked 2 pallette. The MUA palette is basically a dupe for the Naked palette but way cheaper. Being that I wear make up for work, I prefer using natural colours then maybe change the blusher or lipstick here and there, so the MUA palette is great for everyday use however if I need something that stays longer and looks much better I used the Naked palette.

9.Most Loved

It has to be my Naked 2 palette, being that Urban Decay are not found in Malta, when I got this from London, I was the happiest girl in the whole wide world. Ok maybe I am exaggerating but I have heard to much about it, I had to have it and there is anything you wish to have in a palette.

10.Desert Island

This is a tough one, I love all of my palettes so much and it pretty much between the Naked palette and the NYX but being that I love colorful eye shadows I have to go with the NYX box of eye shadows palette. It has all I need in a palette from neutral to colorful shadows, so this is my desert island.

 

Well I hope you liked this post, I do hope to have much more palettes in the future, slowly slowly I will get there 🙂

If there are any blogger who wish to do this, feel free to do so, I would love to see your palettes

Make-Up Portfolio

Hello dear readers,

I wish to excuse myself for my absence lately but my life has been very hectic, apart from my full time work, I have been very lucky in make-up jobs and currently rehearsing for another Voices concert. If you follow my Facebook page I have uploaded a bunch of photos of my recent work, I still have more to upload but in the meantime you can have a look of what I have been up-to so far.

MUA Portfolio page

I also uploaded most of the looks on my MUA Portfolio page, in which there are mentioned some of the amazing photographers I have worked with. I whish to thank especially two different photographers Fritz Von Weisberg and Eva Ferrier, for giving me the opportunity to work with them. They are both have very different artistic styles, but both of them believed in my artistic talent, for which I will be always grateful for.

As time goes by, I do hope I get to chance to work with other various photographer and apart from that have different clients, that will enable me to create whatever they and I want.

Once I organize myself a bit better, I will post more reviews, make-up looks and fashion segments. If you wish for me to post anything in particular, do not hesitate, by commenting down below. I always love to read your comments and get to know you guys.

XOXO

MAC – Cremesheen – Creme cup lipstick

Being a make-up artist, it is vital to have the basic coloured lipstick. I was in the search for a beautiful nude colour to use on clients especially for brides, and as I saw the Creme cup lipstick by MAC I knew I had to have it. When it comes to lipstick, I think no one beats MAC they last for a long time and have simply beautiful pigmentation. I have to admit that the matte lipsticks last longer than the Cremesheen but then again the cremesheen aren’t so bad themselves.

The only factor which makes the sheen ones better than the Matte lipsticks is that they are creamy and feel really nice on the lips. While the matte ones can be a bit to dry. The colour is a pinkish nude colour which is why looks pretty nice on anyone with light skin. If you have a medium or dark skin colour I would opt for other colours, however on most Mediterranean skin it worked just fine.

Overall I think this is a must have, I used it mostly on myself if I am doing a Smokey eye look, or else if I’m wearing an overall natural make up look.

Pros:

  • Beautiful sleek black packaging as all other MAC lipsticks
  • Creamy texture
  • Long lasting between 4 to 5 hours
  • Worth every penny

Cons:

  • The only con I can think of is that it might be a bit pricy for some people but it’s truly worth every penny. So there isn’t any negative really.
