Photoshoot with Valeria and Fritz Photography

Hello dear lovely readers,

Last week, I had one hell of a busy week, however it was filled with some exciting events, one of them was this lovely shoot I had last Sunday. I had the pleasure to work with a lovely Swiss model called Valeria and the very much talented  German photographer Fritz from Fritz Photography.

Valeria wanted something natural colours on the eyes, for which I used a mixture of brown colours  from the very light to the dark shades. While for the lips, something a bit more bold and colourful for which I used a lovely matte red lipstick.  I am very pleased with the final result, however I did encounter some make-up problems with her fake lashes, because her left eye kept tearing up and the lashes couldn’t stick nor dry. Which reminds me, that I need to buy some various types of fake lashes hehe.

Her make-up stayed put throughout the photo-shoot, there was honestly no need for retouching and that’s all thanks to some of my fabulous high quality products . I still assisted during the photo-shoot and made sure I had all the essentials, just in case there was any need.

The products which they are a must for every make-up look, if it’s for a photo-shoot or any other occasions for which the make-up has to look good for hours are primers. I used my favorite Prep and Prime by MAC primer all over her

face and for the eye’s the Urban Decay Potion Primer which works wonders for the eye-shadow to stay put for over 4 hours. These primers are a bit pricey, but they are worth every penny and give the best results, which I believe that in the end all of my clients deserve the best.

NYX – Slim Eye Pencils – in Black and Bronze Glitter

Hello beauties,

Today I thought if reviewing some other products I was given from NYX , one of which are these Slim eye pencils in Black and Bronze Glitter. I have to admit I am not much of a glittery person when it comes to eye pencils, I always seem to go for the matte ones, however it’s nice to have something different for a change. I have tried something similar back in the day, and they used to be quite rough on the eyes because of the glitters, but these liners are truly an exception, they applied very smoothly and gave impressive results.  I might actually try something fun with these too someday.

Pros:

  • They have a wide selection of eye pencils and not just glitter ones like I have
  • They are super affordable they retail for about 3 to 4 euros if i’m not mistaken
  • The liners are very smooth and it applies well, without the need of having to apply several layers especially the black one.
  • Once applied it stays put, I never had any problems with fading however I would suggest using a concealer underneath especially for those that have oily lids.

Cons:

  • The Bronze shimmer is slight less pigmented but it applies smoothly as well, it takes a couple of layers to achieve an opaque line.
  • It says you can even apply it on your brow, I highly suggest for you not to do so because of the glitter.  Nobody wants glittery eye-brows unless it’s for a fashion shoot or an artistic  make-up look.

Will I ever the this product again? Being that they since they are super cheap, I’m not expecting them to be the best pencils out there. I probably won’t purchase any more of the glitter pencils, but I would buy their regular Slim Pencils, which are great buys!

Do I recommend this product? If you like having shimmery liners than I would definitely recommend these particular liners, as they are cheap and good quality but if your not into the shimmery one buy the regular slim pencils, they’re great 🙂
