Burn baby burn

Okay we all loved Stranger Things, but who’s into the new Netflix series The Get Down? We binge watched it last week and now I suffer(?) from brutal 70′s fever. If you have a day or two to kill you know what I want you to watch. I put on my my disco diva Bronx 1977 face just to feel a little better about the fact that we have to wait so damn long for season 2.

H&M Beauty Precious Glow Collection

I picked up some products from the new H&M Beauty makeup collection for fall 2016 called Precious Glow. Metallic everything, you know I’m on it! Apart from these three items I got there are lipsticks, eyeshadows, a cream highlighter, makeup bags, a lot of stuff! Plus of course multiple shades of everything. Out in stores now. Let’s check them out!

H&M Beauty Gilded Brow Tint in Electrum, Treasured Eye Gems in Crystalline, Dazzle Lip Topper in Glisten Up.

h&m beauty treasured eye gems crystalline

H&M Beauty Treasured Eye Gems in Crystalline. Loose opalescent and silver rhinestones in varying shapes and sizes that you can glue onto any eye makeup look. 16 year old me cries with joy!

H&M Beauty Gilded Brow Tint in Electrum. A brow gel with copper sparkles. Who doesn’t want sparkly brows?!?

h&m beauty dazzle lip topper glisten up

H&M Beauty Dazzle Lip Topper in Glisten Up. This one is a water thin product that you apply on top of your lipsticks for an opalescent look. It dries down quickly but not as a liquid lipstick, more like a.. watery eyeshadow or something? Never seen anything like it before! My bottle leaked a drop now and then when closed, not sure if it’s just mine but still worth noting.

And here it is on the face! Gilded Brow Tint in Electrum on top of my regular brow powder, Dazzle Lip Topper in Glisten Up on top of a red lip pencil. The rhinestones will have to wait for another look! Eye makeup is Bitter and Flame from the Urban Decay Vice 4 palette with NYX Slide-On Pencil in Golden Bronze.

Glitter is so damn mischievous, it looks magical in person and when it’s in front of a camera it starts looking like flat plastic dots. I did this smokey eye the other day and really loved it, but of course I had problems photographing it. I hope the awesomeness of this red sparkle against the black wet eyeshadow really comes through!

I just found the perfect product for glossy skin/eyes by the way! Lip gloss is too sticky, lip balm/vaseline feels like a sin on the face, but hello, Rose O12 Moisture Defence Oil from REN Skincare! I applied a sheer base without powder, distributed a drop of oil between the palms of my hands and pushed it onto the high points of the face. For the eyes I applied and smudged shimmery steel grey Marc Jacobs Twinkle Pop in Stardust messily along the lashlines, then dabbed another drop of oil on with my fingers before the glitter. It doesn’t wear very well in the long run, but no wet look will.

Super Nova

Todays theme: Extra everything! I did a purple+green smokey eye (want a video tutorial? Many of you asked on Instagram!) that I paired with two different lips, one dark and one neutral. Which one do you prefer?

Sorry for the weird eyeshadow choice for the green lid by the way, it’s from a super old Too Faced palette that is nowhere available anymore, but it was just that perfect glowy grass green I was looking for. Plus it went with the inner corner highlight so well! Dupe it with something green and pretty from your own collection, or if you’re a makeup hoarder+oldie and still has this one on hand!
