Flick it

Todays look was 1960′s inspired! heavy smokey eyeliner wings, nude lips, soft brows, plain skin.

I’ve reviewed the lipgloss in this blog post, the Nic Cage Churning Butter One Crisp Thanksgiving Morn (HILARIOUS!), remember it? it’s probably the most perfect nude lipgloss ever. A plain beige that still doesn’t make me look dead. LUVV IT!

The eyeliner on the other hand.. I’ve used these eyeliners before and now I tried the black one, heck.. they still aren’t the shit.. The tip is too stiff and the formula is kind of dry-ish, not very easy to handle. When you try to touch up an area where it applied patchy it kind of gunks up and gets a little flaky, so strange. It IS waterproof though, so it wears quite well during the day I definitely prefer the IsaDora Flex Tip Eyeliner when it comes to these pens though.

Curaçao

Idag återskapade jag en gammal makeup! Eller ja, jag plockade fram samma skuggpalett och gjorde en makeup med samma skuggor och komposition, typ. Denna version är gjord såsom jag nu för tiden föredrar att placera mina skuggor och matcha med övrig makeup. Lite mer relaxad, fluffig och “blown out” än originalet! Se gamla looken i slutet av inlägget.

Today I recreated an old makeup look! Or, well, I picked up the same eyeshadow palette and did a makeup with the same shadows and composition, basically. This version is more of what I like nowdays, how I like to place my shadows and match with the rest of the makeup. A bit more relaxed, fluffy and “blown out” than the original! See the old one at the bottom of the post.

I only got face pictures with my phone this time, oops!

Sugar Rush

Todays look! I didn’t get better pictures than this because I had to rush to work, but here’s what I wore! Femme Fatale Cosmetics Sugar Rush applied all over the lids and blended out softly with a bronzer to ground the look a little. Bright purples makes blue-grey-green eyes seem über green!

Dolce Vita

Här är en look med NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil i färgen Dolce Vita som jag skrev om igår! Älskar denna färg alltså. Jag lyssnade på senaste Lana del Rey-albumet (SJUKT BRA!) när jag lade makeupen så den tröttögda, nästan raka eyelinervingen dök i stort sett upp av sig själv. Jag spårar ur totalt med feta fransar just nu dessutom, stora, flaxiga och lite grungiga är nyckelorden och denna mascara gör jobbet väldigt enkelt.

Jag provar även en ny primer från PürMinerals just nu, den har jättefin glöd och ser fantastisk ut på huden men jag vet inte riktigt om den gör några underverk som primer.. Mitt ansikte kändes mest bara halkigare än vanligt när jag skulle applicera min foundation. Hm, jag ska testköra lite längre och se om jag får en bättre uppfattning, i värsta fall får jag använda den blandad med ansiktskräm dagar då jag är utan foundation, eller om den kanske till och med fungerar som highlighter. Vi får se!

 

Here’s a look featuring the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dolce Vita that I wrote about yesterday! Adore this colour. I was listening to the new Lana Del Rey album (INSANELY GOOD!) while doing my makeup so the heavy eyed, almost straight eyeliner flick just kind of appeared by itself. I’m totally getting carried away with fat lashes right now aswell, huge, wispy yet a bit grunge are the keywords and this mascara very easily does the trick.

I’m also trying out a new face primer from PürMinerals, it’s glowy and looks amazing on the skin, but I’m not sure that it performs wonders as an actual face primer.. My face just felt more slippery than usual when applying my foundation. Hm, I’ll keep going with it and see if I change my mind, worst case scenario is that I’ll start using it mixed with moisturizer when I’m not wearing foundation or that it actually works as a highlighter. We’ll see!
