Festive Season Make-Up Look No1

Hello lovely followers,

Since these festive season is here I wanted to post a couple of looks which could help you out for the upcoming parties, dinners and various festive celebrations. As a Malteaser we do take the Christmas celebrations pretty seriously, we always have parties, dinners or various gathering to attend to and it is important we look great each time (I’m not joking, its tiring :P)

So here is my first look for this December, it’s has some winter elements with a bit of gold highlight tones. As you can see from the image, I used brown and plum shades on the crease and inner corner. Then applied a nice metallic yellow creme shadow, which looks golden when applied in small amount. It creates the illusion of depth and contrasts in the eyes, which I absolutely love.

As for the lips I didn’t want to go for the usual red shade (which I love btw, but sometimes it’s nice to spice it up). I used this beautiful new lipstick I bought from M.A.C called Captive, its a lovely plum colour with some brown and red undertones.

Purple and Pink Smokey _Make-Up Look

Hello guys,

I hope you are having a great weekend so far and getting pumped up for another week. I am very excited to finally cover a Make-up look I did yesterday, on my blog. It’s an ideal look for a date night or a special occasion, especially since now that the wedding season is here. You can wear this look if you are wearing a touch of purple or pink or even if you are wearing a simple black dress, it will pop up your whole look.

Keep on reading if you want to know what products I used and how to create such a look 🙂 Please keep in mind that you can recreate this look with any similar product you might have:

Instructions:

Base

I always start my make-up look with a primer, this time I used the Pupa B.B cream powder which I also reviewed this week. It is a great product to help with any redness and it moisturizes as well. Then I move on to my foundation and I apply the Vichy Dermablend number 25 on all my face (do not forget your neck and cleavage area, if you are showing some 😛 ) then I use the Dermablend number 45 (or 2 tones darker than your skin colour) to contour my face.

When I contour I like to leave the bronzer or foundation untouched then I blend it in after a few minutes,. To finish up my base I apply the Dermablend number 15 which is the lightest shade on my T zone and under my eyes. Never forget to apply powder to set all of your foundation. I like to use a light powder for my t zone, than a translucent powder for the rest of my face. For which I used the NYX stay matte but not flat powder in 01 and Essence all about Matt translucent fixing powder.

Eyes

I like to start my eye look with an eye-shadow primer, this is ideal for weddings since you are probably going to party the night away, and you definitely want your eye-shadow to remain intact. My favorite is the Urban Decay potion primer Eden it gives a nice tint to my shadows and it remains intact. Then I start by applying a mauve shade my the Body shop, it a nice light brown shade that helps to serve as a base for the whole smokey look. 

On the eyelid I used the Kiko Colour Fever eye-shadow palette 101, it has 2 beautiful dark purple colours which have a lovely frosty finish. Then on the outer corner and the crease I applied the Make Up Store Choco D’or, a beautiful dark brown shadow with gold tone. Make sure not to forget to apply a nice matte white shade ( Make up store- White and Satin) for under the brow bone and a nice shimmer white shade on to the inner corner of your eyes, for definition.

Last but not least a nice winged liner using Kiko Precision Eyeliner, for this look I also applied the liner under my eyes and onto the inner corner. Finally pump up my lashes with some mascara using the Essence Get big lashes. Feel free to apply some fake lashes for the occasion.

Cheeks and Lips

For the cheeks I used a nice Pink tone blusher by Make Up Store called Glam Rose, and for a nice glow I applied the beautiful highlighter by Soap and Glory called Glow all out, on my cheeks, nose and forehead .For the lips I used 2 types of lipsticks, instead of using a lip liner, I applied the gorgeous Pink Make up Revolution Salvation Lip Lacquer called What I believe and then Make Up Store Mandy a beautiful Fuchsia Lipstick. Having these two together made my lipstick last longer and it looked bolder and brighter. Love it <3

Well that is all for now, I do hope you enjoyed this look. Feel free to comment and show some love by following my blog, here on facebook and blogloving. I love to get your feedback 🙂

Wish you all a great Sunday, lots of LOVE

KIKO Make Up Milano – Haul from Italy

Good Morning Everyone :),

Today I want to show you my biggest Haul of Kiko Milano from Italy. On the 3rd Day after I visited the beautiful Venice we went to Mestre a small city very close to Venice and the best place for shopping. We went to the biggest shopping complex I’ve ever seen called Auchan, where you find everything that comes to mind. It has a huge supermarket, various outlets for clothes, accessories, gadgets, chocolate stores and of course Make-up.

Being that in Malta we do not have the brand Kiko Milano, I went to their big store and got myself some goodies. I’ve always heart very good remarks about the brand so I really want to get my hands on them.

So here are the Products :

1

 

 SKIN EVOLUTION FOUNDATION IN 103 NATURAL ROSE : It’s a pretty good foundation with Medium coverage. It blends perfectly and it covers pretty well small imperfections. It is ideal for summer as it’s not too heavy or cakey.

COMPACT MINERAL POWDER IN 104: This powder applies heavenly onto the skin as it is very soft. However the colour changes to a darder shade one applies, so make sure you get a lighter shade.

COLOR FEVER EYESHADOW PALETTE 101: I am simply in love with this palette, It contains 4 beautiful shadows, a beige cold tone, a baby pink, a plum colour and a  darker plum-brown shadow. The shadows are very pigmented and soft, as I swatched the colours it felt like touching a pillow.

VOLUME EYES+ ACTIVE MASCARA: I think its a decent mascara to use for everyday and I simply love the brush as it is idea to even coverethe small lashes on the inner corner of the eyes. For some reason I am not to excited about it, but  I need to give it some time to test it out further.

PRECISION EYELINER : Now this is one hell of a good eyeliner, I simply love it. It dries matte and it stay on for quite a long time. My new favourite liner so far.

LIMITED EDITION ROCK ATTRACTION BLUSH IN CROSSROAD PINK 03: I quite like this blusher, it is very pigmented so little goes a long way and its a lovely bright Pink colour. I haven’t worn it much this winter but I do intend to wear it in Summer. Now to mentions it cute “Jeans” packaging and sleek design.

HANDS AND LIPS WINTER BALM : Due to the cold weather in Italy I deperately needed a hand cream and some lipbalm, and now I have two of those in one. I simply loved the idea of including them in 1 packaging, it is really hand when travelling. Last but not least the lotions and balm have repaired my dry hands and lips. A very good buy Indeed.

HYDRATING MOUSSE: I haven’t tested this product much in the last few months, but once I do, I intend to give a full review. However I do think it’s ideal to have when your face get really dry due to cold weather. It refreshes and moisturizes the skin from the dryness one can encounter in very cold days

NAIL CARE, STRONG NAILS, INSTANT HARDENING BASE COAT: Recently my nails were quite a mess, some were chipping and others were breaking, so I neededa good harner. It’s hard to test out a base coat unless you wear it constantly, so I cannot say if its a good base coat but I do plan to test it out for a couple of weeks and maybe then I can give you my opinion.

DENIM NAIL LAQUER IN 464 AND 463: These I absolutely love already, they have a matte “denim” finish and dry very easily. They also have a good longevity as they started chipping after a week or so. I highly recommend.

Well I hope you like my Medium sized Haul :D, I will try to test them out as much as I can and post a  detailed review for you guys. Deeply sorry if I am not posting as much as I am used to, however I am doing my best to be active as much as before. I am also dong my best to improve the blog and make it more user friendly.

Wish you all a Happy Weekend
