November 2014 Empties feat Max Factor, Olaz, Alverde…and more!!!

Hello dear people!

An itsy-bitsy late empties video πŸ™‚ I didn’t really have all that many last month to begin with, but still a decent amount worth discussing. Nothing more to say, so I leave you with the video.

Here is link:

What did you use up last month?

Red Riding Hood….and those red red lips

Hi guys,

I have a somewhat different post today which hopefully you will enjoy. I certainly had fun creating it πŸ™‚ It’s not just my usual eye makeup but sort of a full styling attempt :).

The inspiration came from my friend, and pro MUA, Malou, who suggested I try some dark lips…so I did. My lipstick collection doesn’t really contain true dark colours but it does have some gorgeous red shades.

Some time ago, I ordered an adventure pack with 10 NYX Round Lipsticks from rockthecatwalkΒ – basically the lovely people at the online store picked 10 shades for me (I could give them an idea what I wanted) and I had no clue what to expect.

Overall, the lipsticks turned out to be really pigmented and creamy, especially the matte ones. I instantly fell in love with one of them though, a red beauty named Hero…

Naturally, with a lipstick like this, one has to remain a bit on the neutral side with the eye makeup. All I can say is, I tried!!! πŸ˜›

To make it even more fun, I used as a prop another favourite of mine – a red beret I got from Accessorize several years ago.

And that’s how the complete look turned out:
