I decided to go for a lighter look today, yet vivid and white! I also wanted to try out my new MAC Reflects Glitter in Purple Duo! One thing's for sure, I need more of those Reflects Pigment!!!

I used:

Eyeliner - MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack
Eyepencil - Medium Pencil Elate from Illamasqua
Glitter - MAC Pigment Reflects in Purple Duo (on top of the eyeliner) attached with Inglot's Duraline
Mascara - Eyeko Curvy Brush Mascara
Eyebrow - Illamasqua Fine Pencil in Eerie plus Gosh Long Lasting Brow Pen in Dark Brown

Upper three from the left: Boo Berry, Currupt & Drama Queen
Lower three: Nautica, Neptune & Yellow Brick Road


As Azure was mentioning in this post we were fortunate enough to pick out 12 shades from Make Up Geek, and I picked out these ones! Funny thing was that Azure picked out the ones that I usually grab and I snatched the ones she usually goes after! But it's a good thing to try new shades and have a more open mind!

They're lovely to work with and to sum them up in just one word: they're FANTASTIC!
Only bad thing, now we want them all! 

Got any favorites from MUG?

Soft but pearly!










Whoopdidoo! 
Big time for some pearls, don't you think!? And why not mix and match the colours a bit?? Look at all the pearls here and also see where we bought them from.
And I don't know why really, but I never put my pearls/rhinestones symmetrically. It has something to do with let's start like this and then I kind of forget how I wanted everything to look from the beginning! Really weird I know, but as Phlox and I always say: "There's symmetry in the asymmetry!"
Anyone who wants to vote for that, feel free to do it!

Products of the day:
Primer - Too Faced Shadow Insurance Glitter Glue
Shadows - MadMinerals Multi Use Pigment in Candlelight
Eyepencil - S.O.P.H.I.E Pencil by Illamasqua
Mascara - Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes in Black
Detail - Pearls from eBay attached with clear eyelash glue
Eyebrows - Lancome Le Crayon Eyekohl in Bronze

Over and out!

Cranberry Silver eyes








So finally here's a look using Inglot Blush No 63. I'm totally in love with this one! I just want to use it everyday, and that's a rare feeling for me. I like to use different colours everyday!
Currently, I'm trying something new out with my brows; a more shaper shape! I just got so bored with them the other day and magically found a brow liner which was just a life saver. And why stop there when you can make a cool twist with the eyeliner too?!


I used:
Primer - Illamasqua Fat Pencil in Perverse
Shadows - Inglot Blush No 63, Sugarpill Loose Eyeshadow in Tiara, Sleek Storm Palette (just the lighter ones)
Eyeliner - MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack
Eyepencil - Medium Pencil Elate from Illamasqua
Glitter - Collection 2000 Glam Crystals Dazzling Gel Liner in Glitz
Mascara -Givenchy Phenomen'eyes Mascara
Eyebrow - Gosh Long Lasting Brow Pen in Dark Brown

Enjoy!

I've just discovered a new awesome colour! It's deep cranberry red yet very bright, really hard to describe though! I'm talking about Inglot Freedom Blush in No 63. 
I just want to paint my entire face with it because it's just so beautiful! 
I store it in my Unii Palette!
Got any favorite blushes from Inglot?

Enjoy!

All Things Beautiful Eye Make Up Challenge; Day 10 Graphic Liner









This is my look for the Graphic Liner day, and I liked very much doing it!
Unfortunately we missed some days in the challenge by Beth but this week has been crazy with things to do!
Anyhow, this turned out to be a bit Black Swan inspired (so maybe this could be counted in as two in one, since the challenge day before this was Celebrity Inspired haha). But I didn't do it on purpose, I just did a regular eyeliner to begin with, only I drew it a bit lower and longer than usual.
The rest is just something I built up and then filled with green, blue and glitter.
Turned out pretty well, but I would do something entirely different next time!

Eyeliner products:
Primer - Too Faced Shadow Insurance Glitter Glue
Shadows - Mad Minerals Finishing Powder in Flash Glow
Eyepencil - S.O.P.H.I.E Pencil by Illamasqua
Eyeliner - Mega Liner Liquid in Blue and Turquoise and Water Proof Liquid Eyeliner in Black from Wet'n'Wild. NYX Studio Liquid Liner in Extreme Sky Blue. Sleek Glitter Dip It Eyeliner in Caribbean
Mascara - Curvy Brush Mascara from Eyeko
Eyebrows - Black from a Sleek palette

Enjoy!

Make Up Geek Tutorial

So we got some treasures sent to us from Make Up Geek, and we are so thrilled! We picked six shadows each, and let me tell you this, it was hard to choose! Just take a look at the range they have! 
Hey Make Up Geek, be prepared for a huge amount of love from our side and a possible order coming up!!
The size of these shadows are like MAC ones, you know, very just right! 
Great pay off, there are shimmery ones, sparkling ones and matte ones so just relax, make yourself comfortable and look through them all before you decide what you want!

Any way, these are the ones I picked, and well I wanted to use them all in one look, and Phlox was cheering on the side saying I should challenge myself when I asked if it was feasible! So she got her ways, and I thought, why not do a tutorial as well!
We haven't had time yet to swatch these babies, but trust me, we will! Just be patient okay! Now look at them!

Top row: Poolside, Ocean Breeze and Mandarine
Bottom row: Sensuous, Bada Bing and Razzleberry

Yiha! So now I'll show you my look I did with them, and when I started I had no plan at all so bare with me okay!!
Here we go!
Start with a clean base
Prime time! I've used Too Faces Shadow Insurance in Glitter Glue, a very good primer!
Use your finger to smudge it out

Let's get started with the inner crease! I used Sensuous on a small blending brush

And placed it like this. Up to the brow, but only half way out

Because that's where I meet up with a brown shadow, Bada Bing

And this is the base of the crease. Don't worry about the sharp edges, I'll blend them out before I'm finished

Okay, now for some bright colour! I took Razzleberry on a small brush and placed it in the outer corner of the lid, and blended it a bit upwards and in to Sensuous, the first colour.

Like this!

And let's add some orange, shall we! This is Mandarine, meeting up with Razzleberry!

Getting somewhere now are we!

Yiha, now let's add some blue! I coloured the waterline in bright blue with a Kiko Kajal Crayon in number 110...

...but also under the bottom lashes

 Take a brush, and smudge the gap between the lashes so you'll get the colour everywhere. If blue isn't your cup of tea, take your ordinary black, or white for that matter and you'll look a lot more alert!


Then it's time to put on some shadow on this, to seal it in to place. I used Poolside on a small brush.

And on the same brush I used Ocean Breeze to darken the outer corner

And also to create a flick instead of an eyeliner

Result!
 Okay, time for some massive highlighting!





Tear duct, inner corner, under the bottom lashes, the brow bone, they all need this gorgeous high lighter! This is me using my precious Barry M Fine Glitter Dust in Iridescent Gold 



See, no hard edges here at all! I like to use my high light to blend the edges out from my crease!

Now let's do the brows. And mascara!



Hmmm, one coat is enough? Don't think so! Let's put another coat!



There! Now I'm all set! This is the finished look, now I'll show you the ordinary pics of different angles so you can study it all!
Hope you liked the tutorial!

Primer - Too Faces Shadow Insurance Glitter Glue
