Beauty Look | Full Cover #MOTD

I’m back Loves, I missed blogging so much. On my Instagram I told you the reason why and I’m happy to see you wished me a welcome back. I appreciated it a lot! I’m going to focus on my blog because during my ‘’sabbatical’’ I have been inspired to work on upcoming blogposts. First blogpost that popped in my mind is a beauty look. I haven’t done one for a while, it felt good to play with makeup for a full cover look. Especially when I kept my makeup simple during my college days.

Let’s get right into it Loves. After I rinsed my face with lukewarm water I applied Farsáli Rose Gold Elixir 24K infused beauty oil. Such a mouth full, but it works heavenly! It has a sweet peachy smell and it moistures very well. Then I used Essence Anti Redness Colour Correcting liquid concealer. I used it to blemish my impurities, it’s a truly holy grail because it neutralizes redness. The foundation that I used after the green concealer is, KIKO Milano in shade Cool Rose #20. For a sun kissed glow I used Lancaster Infinite Bronzer in #001. Not only it has a 15 SPF, it feels like luxury on my skin. Also, a plus: the smell. I also contoured my face like I did here. Since I’m having the hang of it, I enjoy when I do a good contour. I used Primark PS Contour Shade Crayon paired with Essence Stay All Day Long Lasting concealer to highlight the parts I wanted highlighted. On my cheeks I used Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in shade Medium 2. I used a little bit just to add more volume to the sun kissed glow. On my cheekbones I used KIKO Milano Glow Fusion powder highlighter in #02. Also, a little bit because I don’t want to dominate the glow. I also used ICONIC London Illuminator in shade Original to have that warm glow you always get when you visited the beach.

For my moving eyelids I used first L’Oréal Paris eyeshadow in shade Pop #410. From the middle to the outside ends, I used L’Oréal Paris eyeshadow in shade Smoky #306. I also used it on the inner corners of my eyes for an open look. On top of my eyelids and under my eyebrows I used H&M eyeshadow in shade All White Already to finish the open look. For eyeliner wings I used MAC Modern Twist Kajal liner in shade Cat’s Meow. For my eyelashes I used Primark PS Amplif-Eyed mascara. I love the brush of this mascara, it’s covers all my small lashes perfectly. To tame my eyebrows, I used Tweezerman Transparent Brow Mousse.

Now comes the cherry on top of the pie. I used on my lips Christian Dior Rouge in shade Rose Rose #568. I love this shade because it comes close to my natural lip colour.

Tell me your thoughts about this look Loves. Happy to read them, I missed it a lot!

New In | Balmain X L’Oréal.

I was so in love with the Balmain X H&M collaboration that this match made in heaven with L’Oréal got me shook! I even pre-ordered it. When I got it, I was so curious about it that I opened it immediately! But, my first impression about it was: it looks good. Yes, just good. Even though from the outside it looks chic and edgy, just like all things from Balmain and I truly like that vibe. I suddenly felt a ‘’oh’’ feeling. The lipstick package felt fragile like, if I dropped it on the floor it would break. It even came with a small damage onto the cap so my hyped feeling slightly changed. But I learned don’t judge a book by its cover

When I opened it the first thing that you will notice is the smell. I loved it! As I told in my first impressions blogpost, I buy when it comes to makeup with my nose. Since I bought the lipstick online was the smell a pleasant surprise! The smell reminds me of autumn, a wood scent with a twist of a scent from lilies. It even sounds like a fairy-tale.

The lipstick comes with different shades and I couldn’t choose. The shades are so daring and so fierce! The opposite of me. I watched Balmain’s promo videos about it online, more than once and I still couldn’t decide. At one moment, I thought let me choose a shade that I wouldn’t chose easily. So, I chose Confession. It comes almost close to a nude shade and as you know me Loves, have I a love and hate relationship with nude colours. I am glad to find out, when I swatched it on my wrist that the shade has a peachy colour as a sub tone.

When I applied on my lips, the creamy lipstick went smoothly over them. The lipstick gives a matt effect which makes it long-lasting. I am happy to say that the lipstick has a place between my MAC Collection and high end favourite Chanel lippie!

 

Which shade from the collection would you chose Loves?
