Smokey Monaco






At times when I've had lighter looks, I just want to go all in for a very dark one just to compensate it!
And with that mood on I scrambled through my Sleek palettes having now idea what colour I wanted. But somehow I have a weakness for the Monaco palette, so that's the pick of the day.
Maybe you know by know my love for blue hues, so I just had to take the dark marina shade, together with the strong pink one!
And voila! The look of the day!

Products in my face:
Primer - NYX JEP Milk & Purple
Shadows - Sleek Monaco Palette; Midnight Garden, Magenta Madness & Bamboo
Eyepencil - S.O.P.H.I.E Pencil from Illamasqua
Mascaras - The Masquara Raven from Illamasqua, and bottom lashes Medusa Waterproof Mascara in Majestic
Brows - The usual Le Crayon Eyekohl Bronze from Lancome

Over and out!

Purple Vamp!










I have a couple of lashes from Girls With Attitude. I do love their design and how full they are, but some of them are just so uncomfortable to wear. One that I feel is particular uneasy to wear is "Vamp". But I figure I should give it a second chance. Finally, I somehow manage to get them on properly so they even felt comfortable, almost forgot I had them on!
Thought I would do them some justice together with some colours and glitter!

Got any favorite lashes?


Products used:
Primer - NYX JEP in Cashmere 
Shadows - Sleek Palette in Monaco & Curacao, Sugarpill Pressed Eyeshadow in Poison Plum, Dollipop & Buttercupcake, Mad Minerals Multi Use Mineral Colors in Rave & Sorbet
Eye pencil - NYX Slim Eye Pencil in Black
Eyeliner - Illamasqua's Precision Ink in Abyss
Lash Art - Girls With Attitude in Vamp
Mascara - Illamasqua Masquara in Raven
Glitter - Champagne Wishes size 2 from LIT Cosmetics, attached with Sealing Gel from Illamasqua 
Eyebrow - Illamasqua Powder Eyeshadow in Wolf

Enjoy!

Sky Blue









And yihaaa, sunlight pictures!


So this Friday I'm being a bit modest in my make up, mostly because of the fine weather!
And I chose a medium pencil for my waterline and it's rather nice to not go nor light or dark for the look, just something in between.
I have my strange ways, I know!!
And to get depth in this look, I used a darker primer, and by doing that, one can use lighter shadows and start playing!

And btw, I have the strongest urge for the new Sleek palettes... anyone used them? Want them in my collection like.... right NOW!!

Products in use:
Primer - Lime Crime Candy Eyed Eye Shadow Helper, and ColorIcon Eyepencil from Wet'n'Wild in Turquoise
Shadows - OCC Concentrate Pigment in Rime and Iced
Eyepencil - ColorIcon Eyepencil in Sky Blue from Wet'n'Wild
Eyeliner - ColorIcon Eyepencil in Amethyst
Mascara - Skinny Brush Mascara from Eyeko
Eyebrows - Le Crayon Eyekohl in Bronze from Lancome

Over and out!

Lime Crime Opaque Lipstick in Retrofuturist








This is a another lipstick from Lime Crime, a really gorgeous vivid red colour. It's not too dark nor too orange! It's super smooth and my experience so far is that it's long lasting too!
This lipstick tend to bleed out a bit so make  sure to use a lip pencil in order to get the perfect result.

Enjoy!

Where to buy Half Pearls!

Some of you got really curious where we got the flat back pearls we've used for our more recent looks. So I thought I made a post out of it! And perhaps all of you could share fabulous sites to get cool details from?

All the pearls we got, from eBay of course!!

These pearls got more of a satin finish, so they don't reflect in other colours. Buy here


The fabulous oil pearls, they're a real challenge to capture on pictures! Buy here


These ones got a "real" pearl sheen, super gorgeous! Buy here

Here's our looks so far we've made with these beauties:



but more to come...

So please, feel free to share your favorite site where to get gems and other fun details for make up and nails!

Enjoy!

Flamingo Pink!









Yiha!
Haven't used pink in a while, so it was about time to go for it!
And of course, why not use glitter as well when it's Friday and all...? 
But I got real upset with the camera for not wanting to capture the glitter the real way it glitters!
IRL the glitter was more in pink and blue, but on these photos it looks more like silver or green...!
Hope you all will have a nice weekend!

Primer - Lime Crime Candy Eyed Eye Shadow Helper
Shadows - Dollipop, Decora & Paperdoll  from SugarPill. Goldglow Eyedust from Make Up Store
Eyepencil - Snowflake from Make Up Store

Glitter - LIT Cosmetics Glitter in Flamingo attached with Clearly Liquid Base also from LIT
Mascara - Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes in black, and Medusa Waterproof Mascara in Majestic on bottom lashes
Brows - Le Crayon Eyekohl Bronze from Lancome

Smokey Oil Pearl Eyes

Warning! Picture heavy post! 
So I ordered a lot of half moon pearls after seeing fabulous La Coloropata post using white pearls. The second I saw them I knew I had to get them myself. Two seconds later I was on eBay...
This is the look I did, but I regret using such wimpy lashes, I should have used something more vulgar I think. Oh well, the people at the pub where we went for dinner liked them anyways!!
These pearls are really tricky to capture on photo, they're like oil drops and shift in colours depending on the light and angle. 
















Products used:
Primer - NYX JEP in Cashmere on the lid, NYX JEP in Hot Pink at the lower lash line
Shadows - Sleek Bad Girl Palette, Inglot Matte in 324, Sugarpill Loose Eyeshadow in Tiara, Barry M Dazzle Dust in Neon Pink
Eye pencil - NYX JEP in Hot Pink
Eyeliner - Illamasqua's Precision Ink in Abyss
Lash Art - Depend No. 7
Mascara - Illamasqua Masquara in Raven
Glitter - Sleek Dip It Liner in Diablo at the lower lash line
Pearls - from eBay attached with Duo Eyelash Adhesive
Eyebrow - Illamasqua Powder Eyeshadow in Wolf

Enjoy!
