I was just pulling out a quick look to film the Look Fantastic Beauty Box Unboxing (from last week), and I decided to record what I did.
I haven’t featured enough my favourite eyeshadow palettes (from Juvia’s Place) and I’m guilty as charged of saving them for those ba-bam looks, because of their amazing bright bold colours. But it’s just as easy to create a simple smokey eye with it, and the formulas of the mattes are just incredible.
And this tutorial comes in handy, because Juvia’s Place is currently at around 30% off at Beauty Bay (not sponsored, just useful information, peeps).
falling face first on the bed still with our clothes on or running out of the house with a stripe of dried out drool on the corner of the mouth. who hasn’t?
on those days when you are in a rush/can’t be bothered, we usually cut so many corners, and, even though we can cut corners, we can still have a nourishing bomb with a two or three step super simple routine.
all of the products I’m mentioning (except for the Power Peel and the Flash Radiance) can be used daily and layered under/over your other products for a more comprehensive routine.
In a world where colour eyeshadows were either too expensive or not pigmented at all, these little 10€ palettes came to save the day. I remember Sam from Pixiwoo doing looks with them non-stop. That’s a trip down memory lane for ya, with 3 looks to get inspiration from!
This one was so raved that, as soon as I test-drived my sample (as I should always do, impulsive buyer me…) I had to make a video on it.
This foundation retails for around 40$, around 40€, or 39£ — for 50ml —, comes in 40 shades with 4 different undertones, it’s not cruelty free and claims highly customisable coverage, a natural finish, and resisting through water and sweat.
It’s widely available in counters worldwide, and I found it online at Selfridges and, of course, Sephora US.
Sometimes I like to look at my beauty stash by brand to see what is my curated selection from it. Clinique is a brand I never noticed I had a strong relationship with, until I realised that some of their products are actually re-re-re-re-purchases. In this day and age of trends and companies coming out with new launches that they shove down your throat, this means A LOT (quite more than stuff I buy once and move on to the next new shiny equivalent from any other brand).
Here’s my curated selection of besties from Clinique (and a new fling I’m into at the moment):
I love the feeling of going through a whole bottle, tube or jar of product. what I don’t like is when the product is so good I want to repurchase it but it’s expense. dang it, why can’t I have it all?!
