Off the Beaten Path

Idag hittade jag en skitbra läppstift/rouge-kombination! Jag tycker oftast att det är det svåraste med vardagslooker, att hitta läpprodukter och rouge som funkar ihop utan att varken skapa en kontrast eller smälta ihop till en monoton blobb. Av dessa två produkter så har rouget (NARS Boys Don’t Cry) en korallig underton och läppstiftet (NYX Off The Beaten Path, duttat på för en naturlig stain-look) en rosa underton, men de fungerar så himla bra ihop!

Utöver rouge/läppkombon så provar jag en ny foundation, IsaDora Wake Up Make Up, den verkar onekligen lovande! Den har mediumtäckning och ska verka utslätande och upplyftande på trötthetstecken. SPF 20. Jag skriver ihop en grundligare recension om ni är intresserade.

 

Today I found a great lipstick/blush combo! I often think that’s the hardest part of  the soft everyday looks, finding lippies and blushes that match without creating a contrast or melting together into a montone lump. In this combination the blush (NARS Boys Don’t Cry) has a coral tint and the lippie (NYX Off The Beaten Path, here dabbed on as a soft stain) a pink tint, but they work incredibly well together!

Apart from the blush/lip combo I’m trying a new foundation, IsaDora Wake Up Make Up, it seems really promising! It’s got a medium coverage and it’s supposed to soften and brighten signs of tiredness. SPF 20. Will make a more in depth review if you’re interested.

Game Changer

Here’s a smokey eye done with the Highlands eyeshadow palette from IsaDoras fall collection, and on my lips I’m wearing Game Changer from the BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie lipgloss line. I adore these longwearing vinyl-esque lip tingling glosses (see a lighter shade on me here).. Two great products worth checking out!

Rich & Famous

You know how it is, you sit down, smack a hysterical makeup on your face, take pictures, sit down to edit them and.. the laptop screen won’t cooperate. Oh well, we’ll see how it goes! Right now I’m stealing my boyfriends computer and praying to FSM that my laptop will work later.

So, todays look went batshit crazy and I’m actually liking it! Gold glitter, inky black lips and wild brows feels great after a long time without much makeup at all.

Midnight Navy

Yesterdays makeup was a quick one with a dark metallic blue eyeliner from the IsaDora fall collection. There is a brush in the lid of the pot, I used it for the wings and it actually worked quite well! It’s really really waterproof aswell, It’s even hard to wash off, so there will be no smudges with this one.
