Secret Garden

Today I asked on Instagram what kind of makeup you wanted to see, I got some answers saying statement eyes, greens, grunge.. So I merged as many wishes as possible together and did this! The turqouise KIKO pencil on my waterline and blended over the lids, Makeup Geek Secret Garden all over the lids and blending it all out with KIKO Olive Green. Same thing on both top and bottom lid.

By the way, I featured a picture of the main products in this look at the bottom of the post. Good thing, boring thing?

Phee’s Makeup Tips Pressed Highlighter “Mariposa”

I have been CAKING the Phee’s Makeup Tips Pressed Highlighter in Mariposa on my face lately, those of you who follow me on Instagram (@killercolours) know that already. It’s a beautiful lavender pinky purple highlighter that sparkles like crazy, definitely more on the Ice Queen of Narnia side of things than bare skinned inner glow blabla. Exactly how I want things to look right now. Go get it (and her other beautiful products) at her webshop!

Apart from the highlighter I’m wearing the Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Bronze 03 and NARS Blush in Sin. And oh, that perfect pink matte lipstick? More about that soon!

Cher

I’m back betches!! I took a break from the blog and travelled north to visit my parents for about a week. Now I’m back in the south with some new energy, let’s kick it off with some pinky purples and holo glitter, ok?

Can you believe that all the colour shifts on the eyelid is from the same eyeshadow? Cailyn Fantasy is such a trooper. The top lid was primed with a lavender concealer to enhance the cool tone of the shadow, when dusted on top of a black liner it turned bright pink and on the bottom lid it turned into a neutral peach on top of the soft brown. So versatile!

Iconic

Todays makeup was an excuse to get to try my Iconic lashes from House of Lashes. I have seen these fluttery criss-crossed deer lashes on so many people lately (I’m looking at you Karima McKimmie!) and I just couldn’t help myself when House of Lashes offered an awesome black friday deal. It was time!

These lashes are 100% synthetic but still not plasticy smooth and shiny like synthetic lashes often are, they truly look like hair! The band is fairly thick and stiff but they still landed on my eyes like angel wings, just fell into place without any work and kept feeling super comfortable for being so big. HUGE thumbs up, did not expect it. There’s a picture of them in their packaging at the bottom of the post!

I felt that the lashes asked for a deep warm shimmer on the eyes and luminous peachy skin with freckles. A little 60′s as always, that is.
