here’s a very simple tutorial on the look I did last week. one statement eyeshadow, a bold look. and a handful of new great products sprinkled about.
an update on my favourites and routine for my oily hair was waaaaay overdue, so here it is, with a few tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way that have helped me keep it under control and looking fairly healthy despite not spending that much time on it.
a secret compartment in your smartphone case that holds makeup? SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY.
this had my name written all over it…
you can buy a Pout Case and their products on their website. they have worldwide shipping.
@sephoraportugal has started their sales, so I got my hands on a few discounted goodies (and a couple of the new #lipstories lipsticks by @sephoracollection) . . The stick eyeshadows were 5€ (instead of 23€), the eyeshadow pans were 10€ (instead of 18€), the foundation was 25€ (instead of 40!). #sephorahaul #newmakeup
if you’re like me and you don’t like to leave the house without your precious skincare and makeup, but also feel ridiculous by checking in your bag for a 3-day trip just because of the liquids-security issue, this video may just come in handy.
grab a cup of your favourite beverage, because this is going to be a long one…
my thoughts, swatches and a mini-tutorial. enjoy!
you can buy Juvia’s Place from Beauty Bay (Europe based) and from the brand’s own website (U.S. based). as far as I know, most of their palettes are not limited edition, so if they are out of stock at Beauty Bay (because of the high demand), just be patient.
after trying them, I dare to say (spoiler) I believe they are even worth it with international shipping and customs added to the bill…
it finally arrived, and I spend a whole day with it on my face to show you how it performs on combo, acne prone, ageing skin.
please keep in mind that this was *my* personal experience with it, and sort of a first impressions.
for more information on how to choose your shade, please read my post on the Serum Foundation.
today I come to you with 4 variations on red, all with no faff, not frills, no complicated techniques. all you’ll need is your fingers and maybe a couple of brushes, at most.
I think red is a colour that suits all skin tones, it’s quite edgy and out of the box, but can be worn in a very sleek, chic, and grungy way. going from very bold, to more subtle, to glittery, I hope I have combined enough ideas for you to overcome any fear of red eyeshadow and it making your eyes look weird or swollen.
This is nothing less than a phenomenon. Due to its very low price (under 7 €) and to the amazing array of colours, the foundations from The Ordinary have been constantly sold out. If you want one, you really have to want it and wait for quite a while…
The Ordinary foundations come in two finishes: Serum (Lower coverage, dewier finish) and Coverage (higher coverage and demi-matte finish). They have no frills nor high claims, and it’s almost a relief to know that. It’s just a foundation.
I managed to get my hands on the Serum version, and that’s what I’m going to talk to you about.
I’ve never done one of these before… How did I go?
Aside from the spinach and lipstick on my teeth, I mean.
oh, you have to go and watch again because you couldn’t stop staring? ok, I’ll wait…
I’ll just leave you here a list of the products mentioned.
