Black Tie

Äntligen har jag bilder på en makeup där jag bär läppstiftet Black Tie från Lipstick Queen! Jag recenserade det för en dryg månad sedan, ni kan läsa inlägget här! Så nära perfekt ett djuprött stift kan bli. Vackert blåtonad utan att luta mot lila, dramatiskt mörk utan att kännas svärtad och svårburen. Denna makeup är ju t.ex. superenkel, allt jag gjort är att applicera lite mer kindmakeup än vad jag hade gjort till nakna läppar. Mörka/färgstarka läppar drar lätt färgen ur ansiktet, så spara rougeappliceringen till sist, då ser du hur mycket du behöver för att komma till liv igen!

Finally I have pictures of a makeup look where I’m wearing Black Tie from Lipstick Queen! I reviewed it about a month ago, you can read the blog post here! As close to perfection as a dark red lippie gets. Beautifully blue toned without leaning purple, dramatic and dark without feeling blackened and hard to wear. I mean, this makeup look is super simple, the only thing I needed was to apply a bit more cheek makeup than what I would against neutral lips. Dark/bright lips can easily drain the face of colour, so save the blush application to last, then you can easily see how much you will need to come back to life!

Queen

Detta fejs bar jag i lördags! Många favoriter ingick, både nya och gamla.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Inpalpable Finishing Powder är min senaste kärlek, ett blurrande microfint transparent HD-puder som inte känns som stram uttorkande majsstärkelse på ansiktet (hej Make Up For Ever HD- samt Too Faced Primed and Poreless-pudret, hemska är ni på mitt ansikte) men samtidigt håller huden matt. Supernaturligt resultat trots att jag ofta, t.ex. i denna look, verkligen PACKAR på det. Love! Finns skitbra macrobild på resutatet hos A Different Face.

Två äldre favvosar är BareMinerals skuggkvartett The Truth samt Make Up Store Glitter Eyeliner Queen. Förstnämnda innehåller de perfekta semi-sotiga skimriga nyanserna för min hudton, sistnämnda glittrar magiskt i grönt, orangeguld, lite lila.. Ja du fattar ju. Synd att den är så svår att fota med rättvisa!

 

Here’s the face I wore this Saturday! Many favourites were included, both new and old.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Inpalpable Finishing Powder is my newest love, a blurring microfine transparent HD powder that doesn’t feel like stiff dry cornstarch on my face (hello Make Up For Ever HD powder and Too Faced Primed and Poreless Powder, you are horrible on my face) but it still keeps the skin matte. Super natural result even though I often, in this look for exaple, really PACK this powder on. Love! There’s an awesome macro picture of the result over at A Different Face.

Two older faves are the BareMinerals eyeshadow quad in The Truth and Make Up Store Glitter Eyeliner Queen. First one contains the perfect semi-smokey shimmery shades for my skintone, last one has a magic sparkle in green, orange gold, a bit of purple.. I guess you understand the swoon-level. It’s hard to photograph though!

Rouge Bunny Rouge Dramatic Lash Mascara “Oxblood Panache”

Okej, jag har en passionerad mascaraförälskelse. Rouge Bunny Rouge Dramatic Lash Mascara i färgen Oxblood Panache är en vinröd mascara som är perfekt, PERFEKT för att framhäva gröna och/eller blå ögon. Jag har drömt om en mascara i precis denna nyans! Formulan är inte kass heller, fransarna lämnas flaxiga och mjuka samt den smetar eller flagnar inte under dagen. Jag hade bara önskat mig lite mer oomph under appliceringen, jag packade på tre eller fyra lager för att få den här mängden produkt på fransarna, och såhär brukar det se ut efter bara ett eller två lager med många andra mascaror. Men VEM BRYR SIG, pga SNYGGT!

Ihop med ögonskuggan Mighty Evil One från Pumpkin & Poppy (finns tyvärr inte längre!) som är i stort sett samma färg så får jag Den Perfekta Kombinationen för mina ögon. Punkt.

Shoppa på Rouge Bunny Rouge-hemsidan!

 

Okay, I have a serious mascara crush. Rouge Bunny Rouge Dramatic Lash Mascara in Oxblood Panache is a maroon coloured mascara that’s perfect, PERFECT for enhancing green and/or blue eyes. I’ve dreamt of finding a mascara this colour! The formula itself isn’t bad either, the lashes are left fluttery and soft plus it doesn’t smudge or flake during the day. I would only wish for a bit more oomph while applying, I packed on maybe three or four coats to get this amount of product onto my lashes, which is basically the same amount that I get with one or two coats with many other mascaras. But WHO CARES, because BEAUTIFUL!

Paired with Pumpkin & Poppy eyeshadow in Mighty Evil One (discontinued, sadly!) which is basically the same colour I have the Best Combo Ever for my eyes. Period.

You can get it at the Rouge Bunny Rouge website!
