MAKEUP HAUL feat MAC, Zoeva, NYX and more!!!

Hi guys!

I don’t do haul videos/posts all that often, but there were a couple of products that I obtained in the past month or two, that were really worth talking about: my very first visit to a MAC counter, my instant love for Zoeva brushes, and some random things from drugstore and one indie. Find out more in the video below =>

See you soon!

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 🙂 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 rockthecatwalk – 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!!! 😛

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:
