Burn baby, BURN!

Fire, one of my secret obsessions. I love fire, and without sounding like a total freak, they’re just so pretty. I got the sugarpill palette a while ago, and thought it was about time I did a look using more than just one of the eyeshadows, so here we go! It was filmed late at night, so the lighting isn’t the best, but what can you do? I hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial and if you have any questions, just leave them down below and I’ll answer them!

Smoke weed everyday!

This tutorial is one of several I do on a day-to-day basis. I do different versions, by switching out the eyeshadows, but the technique is still the same. Not every smokey eye needs to be black, silver nor grey. It can be done with any colour at any time, and that’s what I want to show you guys with the future smokey eye tutorials. This is the perfect everyday smokey eye, different versions I’ll show you in future tutorials. And the red lips.. Well red lips are just me, the definition of me. I love them, I wear them, I rock them, ahaha. I hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial and if you have any questions, just leave them down below and I’ll answer them!

My insecurity within makeup is slowly slipping away, and my eye makeup is becoming more and more vibrant and colourful. One colour I loooooove to use for eyeshadows for everyday is purple.

Ring of roses

I filmed another tutorial. I really like this method better then the picture slideshow, but I might do both in the forture. This is a pretty pinky-purple look, that was inspired by roses. I hope you guys like it.Even though I use mostly high end product, it does not mean that you have to run out and buy them if you don’t have them in your makeup collection already. Just use similar colours, and you’ll do just fine!

Beauty Joint

So here it is people, my second but deffinetly not last online makeup haul. I love shopping online, but this is turning in to quite an problem for me. I order more stuff then I can remember, haha, no good. Anyway, I always wanted to find a site that carried NYX, mostly the jumob eyeshadow pencils, and shipped worldwide. And I found it, or I found two. I placed my order with beautyjoint.com and my package came one week later, amazing! So here’s my shopping confessions.

  

The first items I got was of course my jumbo eyeshadow pencils. I LOVE THESE! Such an good cuality for such a good price, it’s awesome. Preveiously I only had the one in blackbean and milk, which there’s only a tiny tiny piece left of. So I had to order my backups of it, now I have 3. But I’m thinking of giving one away to a friend. not sure yet. I also got the one in cherry(red), strawberry milk(light pink), yellow, and Green Rocky Mountain(forest green) Buy them people, you won’t regret it!

 

If you read my blog frequently you prabobly already know that I’m a lipstick junkie.I love me some lipstick, bright, neutural, shimmery, matte, shiny, you name it, I love it, and in most cases, have it. So when I had the oppertunity to order more of the round lipsticks from NYX, I didn’t pass it up. I have’nt really played with them yet, but their time will come.

 

I’ve always heard so many good things about the NYX blushes, but I never got the chance to get one. Probobly had something to so with the fact that they don’t sell NYX in Norway, and I would have to go through all the trouble of finding someone to swap with. So when I placed my order, I put in some of these babies as well. The colours of them are(from left to right) Pinched, Spice and Peach. Now, I was pretty upset that I didn’t get to pick up the blush in Pink Cult from the mac collection that launched resently, but this one seems to work like a dupe! I love it already, haven’t tried the other ones, but this one, wow.

You gotta love cheap online shopping, and as it tourns out, they do sell NYX on place in my town, but they take $33 for ONE round lipstick. It’s so sick, I was like, HELL NO! I’ll just order it online, muhahahah. Coz I’m awesome like that. Check out the site peeepz.

I’m thinking of doing something different with my tutorials from now on. I think I’m going to start filming them and posting them on here as videos. Then it will be easier for anyone who may want to recreate the look, to see what tecniques I used and how. Let me know what you think!

Instant Chic

I hate myself for doing this, but yes, I have another limited edition product to show you guys. But to my defence, I always fall in love with the products I can’t get once I run out of them, fml. Haha, anyway, this blush is from the pret a papier from the summer of 2010. I’m crossing my fingers for MAC to repromote this blush, its amazing.The container comes with 6 grams or 0.21 US OZ.

The first picture is taken in natural daylight, so it’s the one that’s the comparable  to the colour in real life. But anyway this is one of my most used blushes. Instant chic and Bite of an apple blush are the ones I’ll use for everyday basis, if it’s not Insant chic, it’s bite of an apple 90% of the time. The blush is matte even though it’s a sheertone, and when you apply it you have to work it into your skin and not just pack it on people. If you take your time with the blush, and blends it nicely, it makes the perfect I-got-plenty-of-sleep kinda look, and not the oh-crap-I-was-up-all-night-watching-movies looks that is kinda familiar to me and my friends.

This blush can be pared with anything. I use my bronzer in golden and MSF in perfect topping, and it looks pretty good if I might say so without sounding really cocky. The sheer coral colour gives a nice everyday glow to your face. I have never tried it out on a darker skin tone, but on the pale creatures out there(like myself) this is our blush!

“Instant Chic is the most unique of the three blushes, despite not having the best color pay off (it is a sheertone, though).  It’s coral enough to be perfect for summer and add some brightness to cheeks, but it’s not so warm that only warmer skin tones will like it.  I do think it’s a better shade for light to medium skin tones, and if you’re of a deeper skin tone, you may want to swatch it in person first.” – Temptalia.com

Overall opinion:

This blush is my everyday blush, so of course I love it. I would without a doubt repurchase it, no question asked. An amazing product for everyday or just to build up in the summertime for the perfect natural coral cheeks.
