Beauty Look | Green Smokey Eyes.

Hello, Loves. I’m here again. You have no idea how excited I am at the moment! This moment of writing a new blogpost after weeks. My summer break started and that equals more blog time. I still have to finish some college work, but It’s not that I can’t handle it together with my blog. Thank God!

I did a makeup look that was in my mind for quite a while. I was in search for a specific shade of green. The B.A.E. Gemstone Eyeshadow palette from Hema, a Dutch store, caught my eye. It has such beautiful warm tone shades. The pigment is for a budget brand good but, not perfect. I felt like I need to be a bit rough to blend it. The next budget brand I used is from Max & More and it works perfect. I love when an eyeliner pen has a pre-formed eyeliner point. When I apply it, it goes smoothly over my eyelid without smudges! Under my eyebrows I used Huda Beauty 3D Highlighter Palette Pink Sands Edition, in shade Santorini. On my inner corners of my eyes, I used the shade Azores. This Huda palette is so perfect; the shades, the pigment, the formula, everything! For my eyelashes I used budget winner Essence Cosmetics Lash Princess mascara. Such a winner and I don’t intent to change it any time soon. Why change a winning team.

For my face I used Bobbi Brown BB Cream in shade Medium. It has a SPF of 35 in it and I love this so much! It protects my face from the sun, it has the perfect coverage and that just for a BB Cream. On my cheeks I used Essence Cosmetics Sun Kissed Bronzer. This blush is definitely my all-time favorite. The bronzer has the right shade for a sun kissed touch. It also gives that glowy look you get during summer. Suits perfect with the Huda highlighter in shade Azores that I used on my cheekbones. Perfect match!

I kept my lips subtle. I used Dior Addict lipgloss in shade #653 Sequins. It comes so close to my natural lip color. It also suits perfectly with all that glow of Huda and the bronzer.

Do you like it Loves?

Beauty Review | Chanel #488 Elise.

After my MAC Cosmetics lipstick collection, I got the hang of buying high-end makeup that I caught my eyes on Chanel. Chanel is after Elie Saab my favourite brand. Chanel stands for me, as chic and timeless beauty. I chose for Rouge Coco lippie in shade #448 Elise. I don’t know about you loves, but I automatically speak with a fake France accent when I pronounce Elise. Since it’s an attack on my wallet, can we enjoy it with our noses up? I don’t judge!

The outside package looks like typical Chanel. Black with golden lettered details. I always liked that colour combination. When you open it, you’ll get that tingling feeling that we all know. Like when you open presents during Christmas, or in my case, during Eid. The first thing you see is the usual white Chanel logo on top of the lipstick cap. You also can see the logo in the inside of the cap, which is black. The lipstick is surrounded with a golden sheath. I like how a simple looking thing can have a chic appearance.

I hope that I’m not the only one who says that I also buy with my nose. It is kind of habit to smell makeup before I buy it. Chanel past the odour test! The smell can be the best described as the scent of dried rose petals. The lippie has Chanel stamped on it, I like this detail. I was at first a bit sceptical about the colour. I have a love hate relationship when it comes to colour pink. I hate the colour Barbie pink and pale pink, but I like the shades between them. Does it make sense? Anyway, I like it turned out well! Definitely my favourite lippie at the moment.

It went smoothly over my lips when I applied it. I felt instantly the hydration, it lived right up on my lips. Same goes when I swatched it on my wrist. The pigment is so great and long lasting! The shade also surprised me. It has a small amount of glitter, perfect for that last extra sparkle.
