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 ūüôā 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 ūüėõ ) 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 ūüôā

Wish you all a great Sunday, lots of LOVE

Makeup Revolution- Liquid Eyeliners

Hello guys,

Finally I am have my blogging muse once again and I will start doing reviews of some of my favorite and even least favorite beauty products.

Today I want to talk about 2 of my favorite liquid eyeliner by Make-up revolution, the “Amazing¬†Eyeliner in black” and waterproof and the “Awesome Eyliner felt and Kohl”.

Eyeliner1

I have to say that these are the best eyeliners¬†that you shall¬†find, at this ridiculous cheap price. There are definitely other good eyeliners in the market¬†but I haven’t encountered good ones that¬†are this cheap, cause for sure they all cost more than 6 euros minimum. ¬†The “Amazing” liner costs 1.50 sterling (approx 2:50euros)while the “Awesome” liner is 3.50(approx 5 euros).

Eyeliner3

From their names you can realize that they were not kidding when they named these liners “Awesome” and “Amazing“, cause they are indeed. My favorite is the waterproof version of amazing cause it doesn’t smudge and it stays put a whole day. I also love the thin brush, as it give you the ability to draw¬†at¬†any thickness you need. But it is also slightly firm, especially for those that find it tough to apply eyeliner. Another good factor is that it will last you for a good 3 months, if you apply eyeliner often, it might even last you longer.

Eyeliner2

Then the Awesome liner is a perfect eyeliner for when you are on the go and you feel kinda lazy to be painting the Mona liza a winged liner. ¬†It has 2 felt pens one is thin and the other is thicker for when you want to be a little bit more adventurous. The only downer is that it isn’t waterproof, so if by any chance you decide to touch it, it will transfer. But if it doesn’t rain and you are not watching the Notebook, you don’t have to worry about your eyeliner. It will remain intact.

Overall I am pretty pleased with these liners, I use them everyday for work. I love how easy I can create any shape and thicknesses with both liners, but my fav has to be the Amazing liner. Also that it is a very dark black colour, cause some liners to be a charcoal grey rather than an actual black. Of course you can find these beauties at their own website, and I suggest you to stock these as much as you can ūüėÄ

I <3 Make Up - You're Gorgeous Palette by Make up Revolution

Hi there,

A while ago I did a bit of a shopping spree on the Make Up Revolution Website, and at that time they has this offer that with every buy that was over a certain amount ( which I do not remember) they gave out this palette with 2 of the Wow lip-glosses.

Images from the Make up Revolution Website

I am so glad they gave me this palette as it truly is my go to palette for everyday and much more.¬†I wish to apologize that I don’t have any original pictures as mine is not in it’s prime shape¬†as I used this palette frequently/

In the upper section of the palette you will find a variety of  10 matte natural colours, which include cream, browns and black. I simply love the matte colours, they  apply nicely and are perfect for everyday make-up.  Then below there are about 22 smaller, various shimmery colours from light to dark. I have to admit I am not really a fan of the shimmery shades, I find them a bit flaky and shed more than the others. But overall they are still a nice addition to the palette.

Pros:

  • Very nice black packaging
  • ¬†The matte shadows are simply a must have
  • ¬†It has all the colours you would need for everyday¬†and even evening look
  • Ideal for travelling (I took this palette with me when I traveled to Italy and it was more than enough)
  • Very cheap and worth every penny

Cons:
‚ÄĘ Not a big fan of the shimmer shades

Will I ever buy this product again? I probably will, I love using it for eveyday.

Do I recommend it? Definitely, I think it’s a must have especially if you’re on a tight budget.

Rating: 4/5

Would love to hear from your opinion, if you ever tried this product

Lots of Love
