Makeup tag

Hi there!

Today I’m sharing a makeup tag with you. I thought it would be a fun way to share some of my favorite products and my thoughts on makeup in general. I picked a few questions I’ve found on other makeup tags. Enjoy!

What foundation do you use?

My favorites at the moment are Wake Me Up foundation from Rimmel London and Ultra Light Foundation from Make Up Store

How about concealer

I use Collection Lasting Perfection. A great drugstore option.

What do you think of fake lashes?

I love lashes! Natural, extensions or false lashes… For everyday use I only turn to the mascara, but when it’s time to spice up the makeup for a party or evening out I love to put on some extra umpf with false lashes.

What brand of mascara do you use?

I love mascara overall and love to try out new ones. My all time favorites are Diorshow and Lancôme Grandiôse. I frequently use the Loreal Volume Million Lashes as well.

What makeup tools do you use in makeup application?

I’m a brush-girl so I use brushes for everything. My favourites are from Peggy Sage and Emite Makeup.

Do you use makeup base/primer for the eyes?

Usually not if I’m just heading for work for a few hours, but if I need the makeup to last all day or for a party makeup, ALWAYS!

For the face?

For special occasions, yes, but usually I just make sure to moisturise the face before applying foundation and I find that good enough.

What is your favorite eyeshadow?

AH! This one is impossible! I love love love the Urban Decay Naked Smokey. And Nude Tude from The Balm. And all my Sleek palettes. And the eye dusts from Make Up Store. And the Makeup Academy palettes. No, I’m not doing this! I can’t pick a favorite.

Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?

I’m a true kohl pencil girl, but recently I found the Precision Liquid Eyeliner Pencil from the Flawless by Sonya collection from Forever Living so the liquid is finally starting to grow on me as well.

How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?

Haha! I love this question. I’ve been using the kohl liner for about 13 years now, so I could probably apply it without a mirror without poking my eye now. But when I was younger and started to learn it happened more frequently.

What is your favorite lipstick/lipgloss?

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Lipsticks (Love the shade on 09 for example) and Make Up Store Lipglosses

What is your favorite blush to use?

Makeup Revolution Blush in colour Love

Did you ever consider taking makeup classes?

Did consider it and did do it. The class I take was pretty basic, focused on beauty, to be able to do wedding and party makeups and work in a makeup store. I would LOVE it if I could take a more advanced class for fashion photos and runway in the future.

Name a makeup crime that you hate.

For me there aren’t really rights and wrongs in makeup, as long as the one wearing the makeup is comfortable with it. BUT, I would lie if I said I didn’t want to go blend peoples’ makeup pretty much daily. Contour and eyeshadows in particular.

Could you ever leave the house without makeup on?

Yes, I do that all the time! I have very sensitive skin and from time to time it really doesn’t want me to wear makeup. At these times I usually prefer go without any makeup at all for six days a week to be able to go all in the last day just to get the satisfaction of a full face makeup. Even when my face has a good period and accepts the makeup I go without it quite often, either out of laziness or lack of time. That being said, I can just as easily do a party makeup even if I’m not leaving the house at all. Just for fun!

This is me today, completely makeup free. The only products I’m wearing on this picture is moisturizers for face, eyes and lips.

Do you think you look good without makeup on?

Well, we all have our good days and bad days and just as anyone I have my flaws, but overall I’m confident with the way I look.

What do you think of makeup?

For me makeup is my passion. It’s a way to express my creativity, and I love to start off with the face as a blank canvas and see the transformation. I love to play with colours and find ways to exenterate the natural beauty of the person in front of me (or myself, of course). I don’t think anyone to use makeup to hide behind, but I love how makeup can give you that little extra boost to feel like the best version of yourself as long as you’re confident with the person underneath.

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!

Makeup Revolution – Haul

Good evening!

Today was a good day. It was time for the arrival of my first order from Makeup Revolution. I didn’t think the order would be shipped until today, so I’m very happy with the fast delivery I got. I made the order with my sister, so even though I had the package in my hand to wait for her arrival to open it. But OH, the goodies we found when we opened it up! It was like Christmas all over again. Of course, I just HAVE to show you what I got. (My sisters things are not included)

Just look at this picture for a while. It still feels like I’m dreaming… Okay, let’s move on to the more detailed pictures! 
That little black box, with the big heart, on the top picture, that my friends, was a lovely gift from Makeup Revolution. If you ordered for over £25 it was included for free, along with a liquid blush and three lipglosses. Of course we split the gifts up, and I got the I heart Passion palette and a lipgloss that will be shown further down.

 

After reading so many great reviews I had to try some of the lipsticks. From left to right;
Lipgeek – Totaly NOT boring (I just had to have it because of the name)
Lipgeek – Barbie is Jealous
Lipstick – Cheer
Liphug – She’s up all night

 Swatches? Of course, here you go! From left to right, the same as above.

The lipgloss on the top is in colour Move A Little Closer. Just under it you find the Amazing Inner Eye Brighter in Nude. To the bottom left we have the Awesome Metal Foil Finish in Pure Platinum. And in the left corner we have Vivid Blush Lacquer in Desire. 

Last, but definitely not least, I decided to pick up the Ultimate Eyeshadow Collection with shades. There happened to be a price reduction, and I just find this palette perfect for a makeup specialist to be, that needs colours to practice! 
I am more than happy with everything that I got, and just can’t wait to get started with the work whit these. 
Have you tried Makeup Revolution yet? Any of these products? Any other favorites to recommend? 
I would love to hear your thoughts!
