MAC Giambattista Valli

I was lucky enough to get my hands on one of the MAC Giambattista Valli lipsticks a couple of weeks back. I chose the peachy coral one called Margherita and I love the packaging. I haven’t worn the lipstick yet, because I’ve been ill the past week, so I haven’t worn much make-up. I have a feeling though that I’m going to wear it sometime this week:)

Here’s what I wore Monday August 24. It was my first day back at uni, and the weather was still a bit warm, so I thought I’d better get some wear out of my pink trousers.

Lasting drama

This is the eyeliner I’ve been wearing in my past two make-up posts. It’s the Maybelline Eyestudio Long Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner 24H, and it’s my first gel liner. As I wrote here, I’ve been experimenting with liner lately, and that’s why I bought this gel liner. I still find the whole liner thing really difficult, but I really want to get better, and the only way to get better is by keep practicing.

Little minx

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. Because my outfit was really simple, I wanted to do a bit more dramatic make-up look and I really like how it turned out. I’m wearing the Rimmel Provocalips in Little Minx on my lips, and if you haven’t tried the Rimmel Provocalips, you should. They’re incredibly long lasting; perfect for partying all night:)

Summer LBD

Here’s what I wore at a party Saturday August 22. I wanted to wear a dress and heels, but I still wanted my outfit to be rather comfortable. I decided on a loose LBD and wedge sandals, and it was just perfect.

More liner

Here’s the make-up I wore Thursday August 20. I’m experimenting a lot with liner these days, and I think this simple winged liner look turned out quite nice (after redoing the liner twice on one eye and 3-4 times on the other). I wore a nude lip to keep the focus of the eyes.
