Romanesque

Jag hade tre minuter att slösa innan jag rusade till jobbet idag, så jag knäppte en bild på dagens makeup för en gångs skull! Dagsljuset är inte ens värdigt att klassas som dagsljus under dessa mörka månader så kvalitén ska vi inte ens snacka om, men jag ville snacka eyeliner!

Jag recneserade Becca Ultimate Crème Eyeliner härom dagen och nämnde då hur mjuka och suddbara de är, samt att den svarta är mer av en mjuk jelly-svart än bläckartad serietidningssvart. Här applicerade jag den med en eyelinerpensel, suddandes uppåt/inåt allt eftersom penseln innehöll mindre och mindre produkt. Undre delen av vingen är vass och den övre samt inre delen är fluffigt suddig. Precisionen av en flytande liner och mjukheten hos en ögonpenna. Aaahhh jag älskar dessa liners.

 

Today I had three minutes to spare before going to work, so I snapped a picture of my makeup for once! Daylight is not even daylight during these dark months so the quality is a big not even worth discussing, but I wanted to mention the eyeliner!

I reviewed the Becca Ultimate Crème Eyeliner the other day, mentioning the soft and blendable aspect of them. Plus the fact that the black is more of a soft jelly black than a inky cartoon black. Here I applied it with an eyeliner brush, blending it upwards/inwards as the brush got less and less product in it. The bottom part of the wing is crisp and the upper part aswell as the inner corner of the eye is blended like a fluffy cloud. The precision of a liquid liner and the blendability of an eye pencil. Aaahh I love these liners.

Brigitte

Can you believe it, I have a FACE! With almost no daylight and work whenever it’s somewhat light outside I’m having problems photographing stuff, everything gets grainy and ugly this time of year. Today I finally managed to snatch the daylight and take a few pictures of my makeup!

This lipstick was my one and only lippie buy in London (soon I’ll post a video showing what I got!), the new Audacious formula from NARS is so good! Here in a peachy/rosy/natural shade called Brigitte. Peachy pinks often look like crap on me so I was happy to find a muted, warm toned version that compliments my skin a lot better. The formula is ultra pigmented, thin, smooth and wears for many hours without needing a reapplication.

Sleek MakeUP Eye Dust “Dirty”

En till gammal favorit som rotats fram! Den lösa ögonskuggan Dirty från Sleek MakeUP är som kakaofärgad folie i puderform. Biter fast i huden utan hjälp av primer och lägger sig som en spegel på ögonlocket. Billig med sina $4.49, alltså dryga trettio spänn, och kvalitet som hade mätt upp med det femdubbla priset. Kan rasa ner en aning på kinderna när du applicerar som så ofta med lösa skuggor, men inget hysteriskt. Skit i att den inte är lika praktisk som pressade skuggor, den är så snygg att du inte kommer bry dig! Shoppa på Sleek MakeUPs hemsida.

Another old favourite that I’ve pulled out from the darkness of my makeup drawers! Sleek MakeUP Eye Dust in Dirty is like cocoa coloured powdered foil. Sticks to the skin without a primer and looks like a mirror on the eyelid. Dirt cheap aswell. Can fall down onto the cheeks when you’re applying which is a normal problem with loose eyeshadows, but nothing insane. Sure, it’s not as practical as a pressed shadow, but it’s so gorgeous that you won’t care a bit! Shop at the Sleek MakeUP website.

In the jar the shadow almost looks like a rough glitter.

Swatched on bare skin, no primer. The effect of it looking whitened where the light hits it and super smokey elsewhere is so cool on the eyelid. 3D deluxe!

Shinyyyyy!!

An old look of mine (hello bangs!) where I applied Sleek MakeUP Eye Dust in Dirty all over the lid and blended it out. It’s like three eyeshadows in one!

Sweet Nectar

Another great combo! Orange lips and nails with apricot cheeks creates a soft monochrome effect. I’ve been doing this kind of look for so many years now, matching oranges is goooorgeous and keeps from looking silly.
