Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Concealer Review

Getting sucked in by all the hype makes me buy stuff I wasn’t planning to get. It’s ok to step out of my comfort zone (and have some new content for you guys), but was it worth it for me, personally?

Check the video to find out.

You can buy the Pro Filt’r Concealer at a Fenty Beauty Counter or, depending where you live, at Sephora.

I did a swap with a subscriber — unboxing

It is definitely quite a time to be alive when you can establish a true connection with someone on the other side of the world through common interests, and become a part of their lives in such a meaningful way, without ever really meeting in person.
This has happened to me a few times, mostly through dancing, but also due to, yes, blogging and makeup.
Today I bring you an unboxing of a swap I did with the sweetest subscriber.
There are no words to convey how grateful I am for you guys to be a part of my life, be it through a simple view or like, but also when you reach out and talk to me.
I hope this unboxing restores just a bit of your faith in humanity for you, just as this whole experience I have had with Barbara did for me.

basic brown and gold eye makeup tutorial

Your wish is my command, and, despite the internet being filled to the brim with brown and gold looks, this is my take on it, based on (despite the fail) the Samantha Ravndahl New Years look. If you decide to replicate it, do try to make the gold stripe thinner ;)

you’ll need two shades that I’d bet 99% of makeup wearers have on their stashes, and I added a bit of extra glimmer in the end.

I hope you have a wonderful week and, if you try to replicate this, let me know by tagging me on Instagram!

base routine — Hourglass goodies

I come to you with a stuffy nose to show you how I’m enjoying the new products I’ve acquired recently, most of them from Hourglass.

Being such an expensive brand, I wanted to do my routine on camera for you to see how it works on me to help you decide if these are some products you’d like to invest in.

matte lipsticks in wintery tones

on a daily basis, for winter I love to wear either a simple glossy/balmy lip or a bold matte lipstick. on my quite full days, a liquid lipstick wouldn’t last me looking as neat as I need it for that many hours, and also they tend to dry my lips out quite a lot, so I tend to resort to simple matte lipsticks regularly (and leave the liquid lips for nights out or shorter periods of time).

matte lipsticks (at least the ones I mention) don’t dry my lips out, don’t look parched, feel super comfortable for a lot longer, don’t bleed on my fine lines, and are super easy to reapply. their downside is that they transfer. they can be used as blushers (no more fiddling around with matching powders), and if you don’t like the slight hint of sheen they still have, all you have to do is blot.

grwm — stage makeup

Oh, reminiscing on my days on stage was so much fun. I hope this GRWM brings you a cool insight onto my life outside of those four walls where you usually see me. I was in absolute withdrawal from the stage and it felt amazing to be back — even if it always goes by too fast.

if you’re an actor who stumbled upon this video/post, please keep in mind that you can get comparable results with different/more affordable brands, and this is only meant to give some pointers on what you need to have in mind when you’re doing stage makeup. I’d gladly do a video on an affordable kit for beginners :)

a simple warm smokey eye — Juvia’s Place Masquerade Palette

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).

watch me being a klutz and having fun with makeup, as usual ;)

influencer influenced: a full face of new products

it’s been so long I don’t even know if I can still do this…

so, in the little breaks between rehearsals and running around for dubbing appointments, I still got to buy some new makeup, and most of it was influenced by, of course, influencers.

here’s a long video (of course I had to start with a bang) on some of the new products I’m playing with.
