Diffused Light

Okay, I went there. I tried the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder and Blush and of course, now I’m just another lost soul. It makes my skin look cartoonishly perfect,I mean that SHEEEEN! Sigh.

Lost myself in that brown Becca gel liner aswell, perfect colour, consistency, wear time.. I’m on an insane product finding roll right now! Time for a “recent favourites” video on YouTube, amirite, yes, no, yes?

My go-to eye look right now

Do you get stuck in makeup routines? Just snatching the same stuff and putting it on the same way every morning. I often do with eye makeup, here’s what I’ve reached for lately!

KIKO Soft Touch Blush – Natural Pink (102) smoked out all over the lids with the EcoTools Airbrush Concealer brush, and lashlines slightly defined with the shadow that I use for my brows. So quick and easy, I actually love this blush more as an eyeshadow than as a blush! The pinky brown shade compliments blue and green eyes beautifully.

Audrey

You know when you start with a look not knowing where it will lead? That’s that happened today, and I ended up piling on warm earthy tones on both eyes, cheeks and lips. 100% fall appropriate! Except for the mascara, it sucked.

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!
