Make-up Of The Day With Green And Yellow

Hey Lovelies,

I am very much aware of the fact that my usual looks are not particularly colorful, natural tones are much rather my style. However, from time to time, I start playing around with something not as neutral as I'm used to. Here is the result of a recent experiment:

What's In My Make-up Bag?

Hey Lovelies, 

I've been planning on giving you a little insight for what I carry around with me on an everyday basis. You need to know in advance that I always do my make-up at home in the morning, so I don't really have a lot of products with me during the day. I like to keep some concealer and powder with me for touch ups, but I don't have eyeshadow for example. I can't imagine a situation that I start applying eye make-up at a public place. I usually put my current blusher in my make-up bag, but multi-tasking products are even more brilliant, like the Naked Flushed which was in my pouch for this post: it can double as a bronzer, highlighter and blusher. 

Here is my current make-up bag:

NOTD: Toff By Butter London

Hey Lovelies,

I've been eyeing with Toff for a while now and I recently found it in a store, so I decided that I can't be without it anymore, and I'm so happy I got it! In my opinion, it's a very unique color, I love the way it looks on me! Toff is a medium rosy shade with a strong purplish-brownish undertone. The formula is amazing, it was almost perfectly opaque already in one coat, but I did two just to be on the safe side.

The color is perfect for autumn/winter, I can feel it becoming one of my most loved nail polishes!

Make-up Of The Day: A Hint Of Purple

Hey Lovelies,

I did this make-up the other day and I decided to give you a short how to. I basically just did a simple warm-toned eye and spiced it up with a bright eyeshadow in my upper lash line. I love this eye make-up, I wore this all summer with a variation of colors, the possibilities are endless. I like to add some black gel liner to the lash roots and this time I even winged it out, but you don't need to if you want to keep it more on the simple side. I thought that a bluish-purpleish pop of color would look great against the red lippie, so I used MAC Pro eyeshadow in Cobalt for my upper lash line. Aaaaaaand the red lipstick I'm wearing here is Riri Woo, amazing gift I got for x-mas and I'm sooooo happy with it!
