The Dolce Vita

Those of you who follow me on Instagram have seen the exciting stuff that’s coming up, I’ve got a bunch of Charlotte Tilbury products swatched and ready, soon to be posted! Oohhh the makeup shivers. Let’s start it all with a makeup look including two of the products, ok? The rest comes soon!

So here I’m wearing K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Bitch Perfect, a pinky nude. GORGEOUS colour but formula wise quite standard. Not bad at all but not amazing. For £23 I want luxe!

Luxury Palette in The Dolce Vita on the other hand.. An eyeshadow quad in champagne (prime), copper (enhance), gold (pop) and brown (smoke). JEBUS this is gorgeous! I wish the sparkle of the gold would pop in pictures as it does in reality.. I used the shadows “as intended” placement wise, but of course you can do anything you want with it.

Miel Doré

Here’s the exact type of look that I mentioned in the post about this lipstick! No pinky tones on the skin, eyes or lips, only this warm golden hue all over and soft blackened eye makeup.

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?

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!

Recension, Skönhet

Queen

Detta fejs bar jag i lördags! Många favoriter ingick, både nya och gamla.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Inpalpable Finishing Powder är min senaste kärlek, ett blurrande microfint transparent HD-puder som inte känns som stram uttorkande majsstärkelse på ansiktet (hej Make Up For Ever HD- samt Too Faced Primed and Poreless-pudret, hemska är ni på mitt ansikte) men samtidigt håller huden matt. Supernaturligt resultat trots att jag ofta, t.ex. i denna look, verkligen PACKAR på det. Love! Finns skitbra macrobild på resutatet hos A Different Face.

Två äldre favvosar är BareMinerals skuggkvartett The Truth samt Make Up Store Glitter Eyeliner Queen. Förstnämnda innehåller de perfekta semi-sotiga skimriga nyanserna för min hudton, sistnämnda glittrar magiskt i grönt, orangeguld, lite lila.. Ja du fattar ju. Synd att den är så svår att fota med rättvisa!

 

Here’s the face I wore this Saturday! Many favourites were included, both new and old.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Inpalpable Finishing Powder is my newest love, a blurring microfine transparent HD powder that doesn’t feel like stiff dry cornstarch on my face (hello Make Up For Ever HD powder and Too Faced Primed and Poreless Powder, you are horrible on my face) but it still keeps the skin matte. Super natural result even though I often, in this look for exaple, really PACK this powder on. Love! There’s an awesome macro picture of the result over at A Different Face.

Two older faves are the BareMinerals eyeshadow quad in The Truth and Make Up Store Glitter Eyeliner Queen. First one contains the perfect semi-smokey shimmery shades for my skintone, last one has a magic sparkle in green, orange gold, a bit of purple.. I guess you understand the swoon-level. It’s hard to photograph though!
