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!

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.

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!
