Colorful Fall Look Using The Lavish Palette By Anastasia Beverly Hills

Hey Lovelies, 

When I got my Lavish palette (if you haven't read my review on it, find it here), this was the first look I created with it and I decided to make a post about it, to inspire you for a similar look. I'm loving these warm and vibrant jewel tones for this season!  It's up to you if you'd wear this look for day or night, some of you may find it a little heavy for an everyday look, but in my humble opinion, it's still wearable. The shadows lasted well on me all day (I used a primer too), the only thing that turned me off was the Covet eyeliner, which didn't work as well as I expected, so it's obviously not going to replace my very well loved Urban Decay 24/7 black liner. 

Here is the look I created:


A closer look on the eyes:


Products I've used to create this look:
Eyes: MAC Paint Pot in Painterly; Anastasia Beverly Hills Lavish Set eyeshadows: Moss, Pink Sapphire, Sienna, Orange Soda, Cream, Black Diamond, Balett; Sigma Dual-ended Highlighter Pencil; Anastasia Covet Waterproof Eyeliner in Noir; MAC Blacktrack Fluidline; Shu Uemura Lash Curler; Chanel Le Volume de Chanel Mascara; Anastasia Perfect Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown

Anastasia Beverly Hills Lavish Set Review

Hey Lovelies,

This palette was certainly the product that I was the most excited about this autumn and now it's finally with me! This palette is so perfect to me both on the inside and outside too. The design and the colors  are so rich and so warm, you just can't resist. :) The packaging is a sturdy cardboard box and you get a quite big mirror with it too. In the palette there is a small booklet with make-up ideas (by youtubers and instagrammers), you get an eyebrow pencil, a waterproof eyeliner, a dual-ended brush and a pair of tweezers and the actual eyeshadows are in a separate little tray.

NOTD: Essie Wicked

Hey Lovelies,

Here is another nail of the day post for you. I'm wearing Wicked today, one of my fav shades for fall. It's a very dark, creamy, vampy red, it looks almost black in the pan. I've used 3 coats to make it fully opaque. I think it would stand out even more against fair skin, but it looks good on my NC35 skin too. I love wearing this shade on my toes too! 



You can comment below with what shade you are wearing today! :)

Daily Make-up: Warm, Natural Everyday Look

Hey Lovelies,

While applying my make-up today, I decided to make a quick post about it to provide some inspiration with your daily make-up. It's a quite natural look, I've used mainly peachy shades which look really flattering on my skintone. If you prefer different colors, you could totally replace the peachy tones with browns or purples. 

Here is the look I created:

TheBalm: Meet Matt(e) Nude Palette Review And Swatches

Hey Lovelies,

So the Meet Matt(e) Nude palette has been around for a while now, but I was trying to convince myself that I already have way too many neutrals in my collection, probably enough for my next ten lifetimes. Then a few weeks ago I came across a really good deal and I just couldn't resist any longer.
