Versatile palette

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. This is the second eye look I created with the BH Cosmetics Blueberry Muffin palette, and as you can see it’s very different from the first look I created with the palette. It’s such a versatile palette, so stay tuned for more looks.

Rusty

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I used the By Beauty Bay New Romantic palette for the second time, and I obviously went for the rusty shades to match my corduroy suit. I think those shades look great paired with the hot pink lip.

Fun and unexpected

Here’s what I wore Monday March 1. I still love this corduroy suit! And I love the pops of pink with the rust colour; it’s such a fun and unexpected colour combo.

Another Beauty Bay haul (early March)

It’s time for another Beauty Bay haul. This one is full of items I received in early March.

Let’s start with another BH Cosmetics palette. I loved the Blueberry Muffin palette so much that I thought I would pick up another 16 pan palette from BH Cosmetics. This is the Lost In Los Angeles palette, and it’s such a pretty palette. It consists of mainly pastel shades, but it also has some brighter shades, and I’ve really enjoyed using it so far.

Jeffree Star released a Blood Sugar anniversary collection in late February I think, and the only thing I purchased from the collection was the Cavity Skin Frost highlighter palette. The first two shades, Icing IV and Candy Frost, are absolutely stunning; I wore Candy Frost last week, and it has the most stunning gold shift to it that doesn’t really show in the pan. Rose Cold and Frozen Prick will probably be too dark on me, but they sure are fun shades.

I also purchased another Supreme Gloss from Jeffree Star Cosmetics. This is a pretty nude in the shade House Tour.

Then I found a bunch of the Revolution x Friends lip products on sale, so I had to picked them up. I got the Chandler, Joey, and Monica lipglosses and the Rachel and Monica lipsticks. I have worn all of these products, and they were all pretty.

These lip products are from a limited edition Valentine’s Day collection from Wet n Wild. The lipgloss is the Valentine’s Mega Slicks lipgloss in the shade Crushed Grapes, and the lipstick is the Valentine’s Mega Last High-Shine lip color in Raining Rubies. I haven’t worn these yet, but I’m definitely going to wear them together.

The brand Soda was new to Beauty Bay when I purchased these items. It’s a very affordable brand, and so far I’ve liked most of their products. I’ve already mentioned the #wowbrow Flat Brow Liner in the shade Kim in my April 5 favourites, so obviously I love that product. I have not tried the #rainbowrave Unicorn Mascara in Fresh Grass yet. It’s a green mascara, so I’m waiting for the right look to wear it with. I purchased the #talkofthetown Lipstick in the shade Rock on!, and it’s such a great lipstick. I love the colour, the pigmentation, and the finish. The last product I picked up from Soda was the #babygethigher Pressed Highlighter in 102, which is a really pretty two-toned highlighter.

Most of the Soda products come with stickers, so this is what my products look like now (apart from the brow liner – the stickers didn’t want to stick to it).

Matte tricolour eyes

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I wanted to play with make-up and create a different kind of eye look, and this matte look turned out quite fun. I used the same technique when I created this rainbow eye look.

(Base: primers – Wet n Wild Photofocus face primer matte + MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance Illuminating Base (shade: Radiant Yellow), foundation – Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation (shade: 110 Porcelain) or Maybelline Dream Urban Cover foundation (shade: 100 Warm Ivory) (forgot to add it when I posted this look), concealers – L’Oréal Infaillible More Than Concealer (shade: 322 Ivory) + e.l.f. 16HR Camo matte concealer (shade: Fair Warm), powders – e.l.f. HD Undereye setting powder in Sheer + Jeffree Star Magic Star Setting Powder in Fair. Face make-up: bronzer – Fenty Beauty Sun Stalk’r – Instant Warmth bronzer (shade: Inda Sun), blusher – Essence The Blush in 30 Breathtaking, highlighter – Dior Backstage Glow Face Palette in 001 Universal (shade: Strobe White). Eye make-up: base – MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly, eyeshadows – Essence eyeshadow in 05 Granny Pants + By Beauty Bay Sunset Horizons palette (shades: Zest + Sorbet + Thunder) + MAC Nylon eyeshadow, mascara – L’Oréal Air Volume Mega mascara, eyeliner – LA Girl Shockwave Neon Liner (shade: Screamin’). Eyebrows: Maybelline Brow Ultra Slim pencil in Medium Brown + e.l.f. Clear Brow & Lash Mascara. Lips: Essence Stay 8h lipliner in 08 Passionate + Jeffree Star Supreme Gloss in Red Affair)

Red and yellow match

Here’s what I wore Thursday February 25. I really wanted to wear the Alice in Wonderland rabbit sweatshirt again and decided to pair it with some red tartan tights and yellow snake print boots to match the red and yellow on the rabbit print. It dresses up an otherwise casual sweatshirt.

Cute and fun pastels

Here’s what I wore Wednesday February 24. I really like pastels these days. It’s just so easy to pair a bunch of pastel colours together and create a cute and fun look.

First impressions: L’Oréal True Match Eye-Cream In A Concealer

It’s time for another first impressions post, and this time I’ve tested the L’Oréal True Match Eye-Cream In A Concealer, which I thought sounded very interesting and different.

As always, I’m wearing primer and foundation underneath the concealer, and I only tested this concealer on my undereye area. The concealer has a brush tip applicator, and you have to twist it for a little while before the product appears. I got the shade 1-2D Ivory Beige, which looked way to dark when I first applied it, but it didn’t look too bad once it was blended out (though it still looked a little dark). It’s a light coverage concealer, but it feels very nice and mosturising, however it didn’t cover up my dark circles completely. I did set my undereyes with powder, because I always do that, and the concealer looks smooth in the undereye area. I wore my make-up for about 8,5 hours and my undereye area looked pretty good at the end of the day. I think I’ve only used this concealer once after testing it, because the shade isn’t a great match, but also because the coverage isn’t great. However, I was thinking that maybe I should try to use the concealer together with a another concealer with more coverage (and a better shade) and use this one as a base layer to get the eye cream benefits. I think I might give that a try.
