Working from home, I mostly to my makeup for fun, to film, to post and to go out. This means that I’m either bare faced or I’m in full glam by lunch time just to go to the grocery store hahaha. Well I saw this tag on Youtube called Instagram vs Real Life Makeup and I thought it was a good way to remind myself and you guys how different Instagram makeup is from every day real life one.
I had this plan of showing you my Colourpop collection in detail with swatches after I posted my collection video on Youtube (here), but that was last year (hihi pun intended). Oops. Better late than never though and after the post on the eyeshadows (here), now we are taking a look at my Colourpop highlighters.
We all know by now that I have a soft spot for metallic liquid lipsticks, so I couldn’t let the new Sugarpill Pumpkin Spice liquid lip color pass by me by. This is a limited edition shade released for the holidays 2016 in combination with its pressed eyeshadow counterpart. Sugarpill released the Pumpkin Spice eyeshadow shade last year in a limited batch and it had such a great success that they repeated it this year adding the liquid lipsticks as well.
Gold Gold Gold! I’ve had this post in mind for a long time, since a friend asked a comparison between different gold eyeshadows I had. I took pictures and they all sat in my laptop until I came across this video by the gorgeous Elsa of Like a Candy Shop. She shared all of her favorite peach-colored makeup and it pushed me to take out the idea from the drawer. Well good news is that instead of only my favorite gold makeup products, Elsa has agreed to collaborate and share her favorites as well.
I’m not one to wear a lot of red lipstick, EXCEPT in December. Holiday season is THE season for red lips in my opinion. In this video I show you my Top 5 Red Lipsticks for the holidays with live swatches and mini reviews for each one.
Exciting exciting exciting days those after a big sale event Black Friday. Packages arrive every day and it feels like Christmas! After flooding the blogosphere with discounts and sneak peeks on my Facebook page and here on the blog, did you think I could resist the sales myself? Of course not, so I did some (very responsible) shopping online and my packages are all finally in. Of course I didn’t shop only for myself but also for all of you guys and this giveaway. With the holidays coming up, I felt that it was time to give back to all of you who read my blog, chat with me on social media and watch me babble on Youtube.
Holiday season is upon us, and it’s the perfect excuse to go all out on glam makeup. Today’s video is a makeup tutorial on this purple and gold look for a holiday or New Year’s Eve party in collaboration with a fellow youtuber Rotem Beauty.
Then you find yourself sitting at your vanity at the beginning of December scavenging for favorites in you makeup stash, bad blogger! Anyway, welcome to my November Beauty Favorites!
After last episode’s look into some cozy Fall routines and recipes (here), Marta from Caffelatte for Breakfast has thrown a new challenge at us for the fifth episode of the #FallInLoveTAG2. This time we are exploring Fall Trends by taking inspiration from Pantone’s Fashion Color Report for Fall 2016 (here). When Marta told us to do a Pantone Fall Trends 2016 makeup look, I was of course attracted by the yellow, orange, red and green shades, that are my daily comfort zone. In fact, I just recently published a tutorial on a Thanksgiving makeup look using such colors (here). However, the prompt also said to challenge ourselves, so indecisive and challenged I was while creating this double faced makeup inspired by fall colors.
For the second year now, I will try to bring you discounts and codes valid for this occasion in the most used beauty-related webshops. For my European readers, I will signal the American website for which you might be charged customs costs. I would personally not suggest you make big purchases (above ~24$) unless you’re prepared to pay around 40% of your purchase extra.
