October 2014 Empties

Hi guys!

I have once again accumulated some garbage, aka empties, to show you. This time no post about it though, just a video (as has become the standard here lately). I hope you don’t mind that. If you do, please feel free to mention it. However, I did hear from quite a few people already that they really enjoy the video format more…obviously because it’s easier to digest.

Anyhow, I won’t waste much more of your precious time and will just share the link to the video now:

Pink with emerald liner

Hello again!

A while ago I saw a look in the idea gallery of the Makeup Geek website, which I really loved. The girl had used a very shimmery pink on her moving lid, and a very shimmery emerald green on her lower lash line. I found the combination of these colours very pretty  and this turned into an inspiration for today’s post.

I used pink on the moving lid, and the Barry M dazzle dust Emerald foiled, as a liner. The lower lash line became purple, and to complete the look I attached false lashes.

This is how it turned out:

I am still absolutely under the spell of Emerald…apparently I have a thing for makeup in an emerald shade because whenever I see one, I am instantly overpowered by a desire to own it. Even if I already have a bunch of pencils, e/s and pigments in emerald, I feel like I can always have one more…For example, I would really like to some day get my hands on the “Mystic” gel liner from Makeup Geek…it’s an emerald gel liner, of course! hahaha

What I used:

  • Essence I love stage e/s base
  • NYX JEP Milk
  • Barry M dazzle dust Candy
  • Barry M dazzle dust Emerald
  • Sleek Snapshots palette
  • MUG e/s Frappe
  • MUG e/s Beaches and cream
  • Catrice Glamour Doll volume mascara
  • Eye Candy false lashes #007

Do you also like the way pink, purple and emerald green play together?

Essence “Dory in Love” colour art pigment look

Hello ladies (and hubby, of course..my most faithful fan and probably the only male to ever read this blog :P),

Can I just say how extremely pleased I am with the Essence colour art pigments!!! I wanted to start with that because it doesn’t happen to me very often that I buy something for an euro (yes, I scored a few in a major discount for €1 each !) and don’t end up throwing it away. I actually love all three of them 🙂 I got a pale yellow-y one, a dark khaki green, and a blue one. Lovely pigments! Normally they cost €2,59 which is still a great bargain for 2,5 g of product, so if you don’t have them yet, go, run, get some!!!

I used the blue one, “Dory in Love” (the colour really is like that cute forgetful fishie from Finding Nemo) and after applying it on my lid I was definitely “Mari in Love” =>

It is such a bright, but nonethless flattering blue colour with tiny shimmer. It applies effortlessly, very little fall out…I love it!

The full list of products I used includes:

  • Essence I love stage e/s base
  • NYX JEP Milk (thin layer as a base for the pigment to stick to easier)
  • Essence colour art pigment #17 Dory in Love
  • Ben Nye pigment Sun Yellow
  • MUG e/s Chickadee
  • MUG e/s Appletini
  • MUG e/s Beaches and Cream
  • MUG e/s Shimma Shimma
  • Max Factor kohl pencil blue
  • Catrice Glamour Doll volume mascara
  • Essence Frame for Fame single lashes

“Get the blues” with Essence, you will not regret it!
