Makeup Revolution – Pink and brown

Hi there!

Since I’ve been having trouble with my eyes and eyelids for a couple of days I haven’t had the chance to try out all the makeup I got from Makeup Revolution the other day. But yesterday everything seemed fine, so today I was ready to give it a go. I’ve used eye shadows from the Ultimate Eyeshadow Collection, and was really happy with how they came out. The pigment was good, and they were easy to build up and blend. The lipstick is also from Makeup Revolution and is Liphug in colour She’s up all night. The lipstick also has great pigment and is easy to apply. I think it lasts good for a £2.50 lipstick, so I will definitely be buying more of these in the future.

Before I started I had decided for a neutral look, with matte brown shadows, since I was just staying at home. When I picked up my palette that was an impossible mission though. There were so many fun colours, and I just wanted to play around. I ended up with something in between and went for brown and pink.

I know these pictures are far from the best out there, and I’m really struggling to catch the eye makeup on photo. The colours just won’t come to it’s right. I truly hope they will help us with this in school since a lot of our work will be done at home and photographed to show the teachers. If you have any good tips and tricks how practice until then, please let me know!

Kicks Sugar Lacquer

One of Sweden’s biggest cosmetic companies has a store right next to where I work. Not surprising that I end up paying them a visit if I have some spare time on a break.

As you may have noticed I’m a big fan of Isadora’s Sugar Nails collections. At least my boss has. The other day she asked me if it was the Kicks Sugar Lacquer I used. Guess you know the rest. I had to run in there.

Somehow I had missed that they made these kind of polishes in their own brand. Quite hard to see though since you can’t really see the texture from the bottle. Guess I hadn’t read the text carefully enough.

Of course I had to try one of them, and my pick fell on a beige one. Even tough I love colors, that’s not always the most wearable ones to my clothes. Therefor I was really happy to find a neutral polish with texture. Also like the fact that is a local brand.

Isn’t it lovely?
